LOUIS (AP) -- Base- ban's Chicago Cubs have reached the -game's traditional July 4 milestone , 7 'A games back in the National League East, but , Manager Whitey Locktnan sees hope. A 3-2 victory Thursday over the front-running St. Louis Cardinals was the Cubs', lifth on an eight-game trip, and .each was by one run. "Obviously you better win your share of those kind," observed Lockman, whose young club also made, the most of one scoring inning. "But the division race is wide open," he insisted. "Not only our club is in it, but there are five others who'll stay bunched Jackson, Carew Still Dominate 1 . .

Rrght-hander Steve Stone, 3-2, ho had never beaten the Car- inals, was the Chicago, man of e hour in a strong starting erformance. ZAMORA MOPS Shelled by the -same team lay 17, the 5-foot-10 pitcher re- tricted the Cards to a single arncd run through 1% in- ings and let Oscar Zamora nop up. The keys as viewed by the mustachioed Stone were dis- wsing of dangerous Reggie Smith four limes at bat and re- ring Lou Brock .in a sixth-in- ing pinch hit role. "Don't tell me about Smith." ighed Stone, who was acquirec ly the Cubs last December in le deal -that sent Ron Santo to le Chicago White Sox. "I was in the other league 'ith him," he recalled, "and he it one at least eight miles of me. I had a few comirre against him." And of Brock, who bounced nto a force play to thwart a udding Cardinals threat, Sto noted, "I was glad lo get hi on the first pilch. I rememb a lot of limes he's drilled t irst one right by me." SINGLE RUN St. Louis' scoring came in 1 ;hird inning on a walk, Ba VlcBride's singla and a grour er and in the sixth courtesy a Vic Harris error. But the bursts were loo lit lo offset a three-run Cubs ra in the fourth featuring Anc Thornton's run-scoring dou and a run-producing single rookie Steve Swisher.
