LOUIS AP) - Don't look now, but the Cincinnati Reds are back where they were a year ago in National League West Division baseball. Rolling at full throttle, the Big Red Machine stymied the St. Louis Cardinals 3-0 Monday night on Clay Kirby's nine-hit pitching. And the victory, the club's ninth in 11 games, put it 714 'araes behind the front-running Los Angeles Dodgers, just it was at mid-July in where 1973. Cincinnati, relying on Ken Griffey's double for a 1-0 lead through seven innings, handled the Cards on Kirby's clutch litching. Double plays helped the 6- oot-3 right-hander in the fourth and sixth innings, then Joe Morgan swatted his 12th home run in the eighth. Kir by, 7-5, afterward retired Reggie Smith to quell a budding Card threat in the bottom of the eighth, and the: Reds added an insurance run in the A year ago the Reds trailed the Dodgers by 11 games on June 30, then won 60 of their last 86 games en route to a repeat division title. Two weeks ago they fell behind Los Angeles by 11% games only to begin a current resurgence that has rekindled championship hopes. Can history repeat itself? "I don't really like to think that much about it," insisted Reds' Manager Sparky Anderson following the Monday night way back," realistically 'but I'm not giving up. We've got nine games left with Los, Angeles. They might beat us nine times, but at least we have a shot." triumph.

"On a club that's fighting like we are, you have to make gooc pitches in games," Anderson said in admiration of his pitch er. "I think Larry Shepard (pitching coach) has really d o n e a Job with him," he added. "His last five games have all been good. He's getting better and better." The outcome, boosting Cincinnati's record to 54-38, also prompted Anderson to muse further on how many victories might win the division title. "At the beginning of the season I thought 93 would win it, but I'm way off," he declared. "They (the Dodgers) are going to win 100.

HOME RUNS--D.Allen, Chi, By GfRANT HALL TIMES Sports Editor Ellis Bogan proved two things in a pro-am golf tournament played at his Paradise Valley course here Monday. Stung by comments that his course had been playing easy, Bogan introduced a few new elements for the one-day tournament. He moved- the tees back to thir championship length of 7000 yards, placed the pins in testing positions and stipulated the use of USGA rules. The results were predictable. No one broke par. and only eight of the 128 golfers broke 80. Players accustomed · to shooting in the 70s ballooned o the high 80s and low 90s. ·"or perhaps half the field, playing the ball 'down' every- vhere was a new expereince. So that was the first thing 3ogan proved: that Paradise Valley is a most demanding course if played properly. The second thing he proved was that le can still hit a few licks: le shot a four-over-par 75 despite .wasting four strokes on ais first three holes. ', : . . . . Th~a( score'was bettered only ay Herman Evans, who works at Paradise Valley. Evans, who had a 66 laet year from the red tees for the best score in this event, came in with a 7; Monday. Evans shared medalis honors earlier this year wit] 70 at Fayetteville Countrj Club. "After the day's play pleted, several goiters made a point of congratulating Bogan both on the condition of the course '. and his decision toughen it. Said Bogan. "We made i harder, but nothing we did wa unfair or unreasonable. It's just lat a lot of people see good golfers make g^ood courses look easy on television; and think hey can do the same thing. This is the first time USGA ules have been followed in · a pro-am here. li's good for golf-. ;rs to get an idea of what that's WINNING SCORES HIGH Indicative of the difference were the scores of the first place team, which finished with a 64.
