GB .519 .509 .477 .476 .442 T. LOUIS (AP) -- The Philadelphia Phillies are the St. Louis Cardinals' chief National League East division rivals, but they're not without sympathy. "I knew how Bob Boono felt," said Tim McCarver after Lou Brock stole three bases against the Phillies catcher during an 11-0 Cards runaway in the second game of a Sunday doubleheader. "Brock makes infielders nervous," added. "He's the catchers and McCarver most intimidating base stealer I've Brock, taking ever seen. Tile larcenous full aim at the major leagues' record of 104 base thefts, was at his best along with left- handed pitcher John Curtis after Mike Schmidt's two home runs gunned the Phils to a 6-1 triumph in the opener. Two stolen bases in the first three innings helped the Cards chase Phils righthander Dick Ruthven, 4-9, and Brock's third theft came during a three-run Cards fifth.- Each was followed by thunderous applause from a throng of 48,245, the season's largest crowd, causing McCarver to remark, "I haven't seen anything like this' since the 1967 Wor/1 Series opener, w h e n . B o b Gibson struck out 17." "They've been in my corner all year," acknowledged Brock, | who has 72 base thefts with 54 games to go in pursuit of Maury Willis' record. "You don't get that kind of response for nothing;" added the 35-year-old outfielder, "al- ghough I've had better days with the bat." Brock also had two hits in the opener and a single stolen base, but those feats were : 6ut- weighcd Schmidt, by who the""' .muscular drove his, 24th and 25th home runs. The first was a towering shot to left-center oft Cards starter Alan Foster, 5-7, andMhe second came with teammate Dave Casli aboard after the Phils snapped a 1-1 tie in the seventh. '"I guess I was trying to hit the ball too hard against him," explained Schmidt, who had fanned four of the nine times he faced Foster previously this cason. The Phillies' Willie Montanez collected two doubles to extend his hitting streak to 24 games ih'-'tlie" opener but was sloped cold by Curtis. G-10, who hurled a five-hitter in the nightcap. "I guess I was just better than he was today," Curtis said self-effacingly. "I was able to move the ball around well and make good pitches on both Willie and Schmidt."
