LOUIS: (AP)' -- The St: Louis-Cardinals can thank the New York Mets and doubleheaders for their second place position · in baseball's National League East. A strugling plub .until. Thursday night,,.-the Cards are 2% games behind-the-Philadelphia Phillies after.double-dealing the Mets again 4 : 3 and 4-1. It was the third twin bill the clubs have played this season. with' St. Louis winning all six games. And while the Cards have enhanced their 48-49 record with a 10-4 mark over-all in doubleheaders, the Mets, the NL's defending champions, stand 4-16 for such travails. If there is a silver lining in the gloom for M e t Manager Yogi Berra it involves the similarity of his team's plight with that of last year. In 1973 the Mets followed th« All-Star break by losing twice to the Cards, falling 9V4 games behind in sixth place. The Mets, however, won the next night .behind Tom Seaver and eventually climbed to the pennant.' . . ; . .. . '. Seaver, 6-6, bothered by injuries most of the season, is scheduled to pitch tonight for New York, which is nine games behind the Phils with its 40-54 Cubs Fall With Marshall At Helm; Atlanta Wins 1-0 For Clyde King AMERICAN LEAGUE East " Boston _ Cleveland , New York · Baltimore · Detroit ' »Oakland: ".
