"He-was also leading off the nnihg,-and I thought we might let a run." The Cards failed to score with he maneuver, however, and ibson left with the score tied 4-4 as a victim of poor support. "Our · defense was bad," Schoendienst said. "We gave Ihem all but one run behind him, and we should have had a double play on one." EARLY LEAD Cincinnati, s w e e p i n g t h e three-game series, - took ' an early lead against Gibson on Bench's run-scoring single the opening inning and an unearned run in the second. But Carroll, plagued by wild- ess, walked Reggie Smith and Ted Simmons to start the Cards second-and Joe Torre powered his sixth home run. ' . Smith also picked on a Carol change-up for his 13th homer and a 4-2 St. Louis lead an inning later, then Gibson's luck again soured. Dan Driessen's routine fly to left field became a double when Lou -Brock lost it in the lights and Ken Griffey's vicious grounder eluded Simmons a first base to score a fourth inning run. The 4-4 tie was forged when with two out in the Reds' sixth Dave Concepcion singled am scored after Griffey walked on Terry Crowley's pinch hit. BENCH SYMPATHETIC In at least partial sympathy with Gibson was Bench, wh noted, "He had" a hard slide and a hard breaking ball. "Both clubs had beautifu relief," remarked Bench, whos accurate throw eliminated potential St. Louis run followin a Reds error in the 10th. "The worked out of more toiig situations "than we did."'
