N Detroit at Boston, N M Kansas City at Minnesota, N Chicago at California, N Texas at Oakland, N CHICAGO (AP) -- "It was a helluva bonus and I'll take it," said St. Louis Cardinal Manager Red Schoendienst Sunday of Ted Sizemore's ninth inning homer which provided a 5-4 victory over the Chicago Cubs. "But I just don't want him to get into the habit of trying for home runs, I. like it-:when he plays the ball around." Sizemore was accepting congratulations from his teammates with Orlando Pen a saying: "Nice going, you get one a "That's the second one this year, honeaL," said Sizemore. "The other one I hit also was against the Cubs in St. Louis. "I was real happy to get it," said Sizemore, "especially since L had popped up once with the jases loaded and also grounded into a double play." Sizemore's homer decided a battle which included three-run homers by Ted Simmons of the Cardinals in the top of the sixth and Rick Monday's three-run blast in the bottom of the sixth when both benches emptied onto the field for a near confrontation between Billy Williams of the Cubs and pitcher Sonny Siebert of the Cardinals.

"If I'm that f a r ahead, can you imagine what the rest of the club's going to do in September?" W h a t McGraw did Sunday was enough for the time being. He won a ball game. And once again, the call wafted through the New York Mots' locker room, the slogan that Tug made famous in last year's September drive from last place to the National League championship. "You gotta believe," McGraw said. He might have added: ". . . in yourself." The 'Mets' left-handed reliever, who has lost four games this year and owns a balloon- sized 5.25 earned-run average, didn't win his first game last year until the 124th of the season-Aug. 22, to be exact. Sun day's 4-1 triumph over the Mon treal Expos was 1974's 9711 game for the Mets. In Sunday's other Nationa League games, Pittsburgh bea Philadelphia 4-3, St. Loui: downed Chicago 5 4 , Cincihnat bombed San Diego 14-1 and. in a pair of 10-inning games Atlanta edged Los Angeles 3- and Houston tripped San Fran Cisco 3-2. 'We've gotta push ourselvc harder." McGraw said. PIRATES 4, PHILLIES 3 "It was a hip ball game, bu not 'crucial.' Manager Dann Murtaugh said after his Pirnte ·hose divisional lead on Simmons' 13th homer, Wil Hams went sprawling on Siebert's first pitch in the bottom of the sixth. Williams started toward the mound and players 'rom both benches flooded the :ield. Order was quickly restored. "I thought he was throwing at me," said Williams-. "He has better control than that. I. hit the ball hard off him the first two times up but I didn't have any hits so why should he throw at me." Siebert said he was "surprised Williams came out toward me. The ball was three feet over his head. I-was just trying to get a little more on it. If I wanted to brush him back, which is all part of the game, I would have thrown it under his chin." The game started out as a battle between Siebert and Cub starter Steve Stone who blanked the Cardinals on two hits in the first five innings. With .two out in the bottom of the fifth, Stone singled a n d then came all the way home with the game's first run on a double by . Bill Madlock. But :hen Stone gave up singles to Bake McBride and Reggie Smith before Simmons hit his homer. After Siebert's pitch sent Williams sprawling, Williams singled and Andre Thornton followed with a double to chase Siebert. Rich Folkers came in to pitch to Monday who responded with his 12th homer of the season, giving the Cubs a 43 lead. The Cardinals tied it in the eighth with three singles and a pinch sacrifice fly by Tim beat the first-place Phillies on Ed Goodson's single. rimmed to two games over St. 'Anybody in the East could till win it yet with two months eft," he said. Tommy Hulton's riple and Jay Johnston's solo homer gave the Phils a 3-0 bad efore the Hues woke up. CARDS 5, CUBS 4 Ted Sizemore led oft the ninth nning with a homer to power t.
