Only games scheduled through' nine-innings;-Then^after Rob Adams led off the bottom of the ninth with a double, Armstrong singled h i m to third. One batter and two outs later, Madison drove home Armstrong with the winning run. Madison had entered the game as.-a pinch hitter in the seventh. He was the only reser ve on either team to see action His base hit earnel the ever lasting gratitude of teammat Kelvin Johnson,-who had been so deep in the-doghouse tha not even'.Alpo could hav brought him out. In the second inning, Johnson blasted an apparent home ru over 1 the left field fence. Bu after he danced exuberantl; around the bases, College Clul threw liim out at-first base 01 an ' appeal play. Johnson hai neglected to include, the touch ing of first base in his choreo graphy. DOUBLE PLAY Then ..with runners on firs and third and none out in th ninth, Johnson hit into a pit cher-to-first-to-home d o u b 1 play. It looked as if Colleg Club pitcher Brian Holt woul strand his eighth runner scoring position, but Madiso upset the script. Holt, 10-3, pitched admirabl and could have won with bette fielding support. Errors b Mark Prenger and Bob Stei, hens led to two unearned run in the fourth inning. Holt sea . tered 12 hits, struck out eigl and walked four. Cards Sail Past Pittsburgh Over the last three innings, owever, Armstrong was the ronger pitcher. While Holt as giving up five hits, Arm- rong-' allowed just one base unner and retired seven of the ine Dairymen on strikes. Fayetteville jumped to a 3-0 ead in the second inning of ic game. Rick Karnbach led if with a walk and stole the rst of his two bases, setting p-. a sacrifice by - Stephens. .Third baseman Ronnie Burton ommitted Camden's only-error f the game on the play, allow- ng Karnbach to score and tephcns to reach second. GROUND-KULE DOUBLE Prenger followed with a hit- md-run, ground-rule double to plate Stephens. After Rick Tayor' fanned and Holt, sacrificed rcnger to third, Randy Porter drove in the third run with his econd straight hit. James Johnson drove in a Camden run in the second with a . single and another, in the 'oiirth .with a double. Another run scored on Stephens' error, and the score was tied 3-3 into the seventh. College Club took the lead on j single by Larry Atha and an RBI double by Karnbach, but 3amden got the run back in its seventh on a single by Doug Smith, a wild pitch and a base PITTSBURGH (AP) -- It remains to be seen whether the St. Louis Cardinals can outrun the ghosts of their past slumps, but relief pitcher Dave Giusti of the Pirates already has been revisited. Giusli was near-perfect' in July after struggling for three months, but Thursday night he yielded three runs in the llth inning.'of ·Pittsburgh's 5-2;lpss to-the Cardinals.: ,-.-; II was the sixth straight triumph for the Cardinals and their 10th in 11 games since dropping 13 of 14 in a mid-July fright. "If we can avoid any more slumps, we have a real shot at winning it," said infielder Ken teitz, whose two-run double off Giusti in the llth helped St. jOuis maintain a share of the ead with Philadelphia in the National League East. Giusti, in a postmortem on the performance t h a t dropped his, 5-4,,said, "No, I didn't have 'good stuff. My control was bad and I was getting behind hitters, and I canT behindhirers, and-I-can't pitch behirid'the ; -hitter." "' After two saves and a 3-5 record prior to July, Giusti notched three victories and four saves last month with 10 strong relief appearances in a row. His August debut came in re- lief of starter Ken Brett, who left after 10 innings with the score tied 2-2. After Joe Torre belted a one- out double to left off Giusti, Ted Simmons was walked intentionally. Reitz then clouted a two-run double to left-center and Mike Tyson brought Reitz home with a single up the midle. "I think-.A.hOIlVet" wftSVfplay.- ing me a:Jittle;^right.:.:b.eeus.e that's where I'd been hitting the ball," said Reitz, who also rapped two singles in helping St. Louis whip Pittsburgh for the ninth time in 11 meetings this season. Brett allowed one hit over the first five innings as the Pirates . hit by Mike Harris. Camden threatened in the Dodgers Pound Padres 8-1 Phils Trip Expos eighth when Jim Black became the sixth player to steal a base against Fayetteville, but Holt pitched out of the jam. Earlier, Prenger had rescued Holt twice with inning-ending plays. Armstrong improved his record to 7-1 with the win . and Camden advanced to 43-10.

W.J. Usery Jr., chief federal mediator, recessed the negotiations for five days Thursday amid charges and countercharges by the striking players and the owners. · The NFL Players Association lolds a news conference this morning to give what it called comprehensive statement on the union's position. Bill Curry of the Houston Oil- ers, president of the association, said the NFL Management Council, the owners bargaining agent, has not taken the union's demands seriously. "We were asked for counterproposals which we submitted,' he said after Usery reccsscc negotiations until 2 p.m. EDI Tuesday. "Then we were toh hey were not satisfactory, tha hey were not serious enough." Usery recessed the negotia .ions, begun on Monday after ;hey broke down seven days nreviously, because "an agree ment can't be consummated a this time." And the duration of the strife seemed to be taking its loll in veterans' sentiments, too. Sev eral players expressed waver ing opinions on their positions. "I don't think many ballplay ers can afford to go througt most of the exhibition seaso: (on strike) and I don't think th owners can afford it either, said Miami runhing back Jim Kiick. . .-...·..-. --, He also "suggested, that th exhibitions "are going to te the tale," in that a strong turn out by the fans might solidif Fingers, Oak, 7-3, .700, 2.71.

Usery said he had hoped 3e able to get the two parties t agree to a new contract bcfor the playing of the first pr season games tonight but it b came apparent that the tw warring parties could not reac an agreement. "There are still a lot of i sues, major differences, ou standing and we hope that the can be bargained," said Userj "They are far apart on man ;ues.
