Manager knowledge;! as much Monday night but also conceded perplexity as to how to fill the club's most pressing need. "It sure won't come from a contending club," he said of the help the Phils seek after a 3-2 loss in 13 innings to the St. Louis Cardinals. "How do you compensate?" he mused. "You do it by getting more runs. That's what the game's about five runs to get us into the late innings." Orark's Phillies, falling t w o games behind the first-place Cards in the chase for the East Division title, were bolstered by 11 strong innings from starting pitcher Wayne Twitchell. But a Ted Simmons home run, his 14th, ruined the right- hander's shutout bid in .the ninth and eventually brought on help that failed. Pete Richert, 1-1, was tapped for a leadoff double in the 13th by the Cards' Ted Sizemore, and Bake McBride was intentionally walked. That brought posely after a wild pickoff attempt, and Joe Torre popped a Garber delivery off the left- center field wall for the winning hit. "I can't be overly dissatisfied with the way Richert's pitched lately," Ozark said, however, "and even with Garber giving up the base hit. The ball was high. He had to get it over the plate. "But I don't have that guy but there in the bullpen I'd like to have," the Phils' manager admitted. "If I had, things might be different." ~ Phils lamented second-line City, St. Louis Philaphia Pittsburgh -'Montreal New York ' Chicago NATIONAL LEAGUE East W L Pel. 57 52 55 54 52 57 50 56 47 .523 .505 .477 .472 .448 .434 46 60 West Los Angeles 73 37 .664 Cincinnati 66 45 .595 Atlanta 56 53 .514 · San Fran" 50 62 .446 hSan Diego 45 67 .402 i Monday's Results Houston 7, San Francisco 2 : New York 10, Montreal 4 Los Angeles 6, Cincinnati 3 St. Loin's 3," Philadelphia 2, 13 ·innings · Atlanta 9, San Diego 7 Only games scheduled Taesday's Games 1 St.Louis (McGlothen 12-7 and Forsch 3-2) at Montreal (Torrez 9-7 and Rogers 11-13), twi-night · : · Chicago (Todd 2-1) at Philadelphia (Carlton 13-7), N : New York (Koosman 11-7) at ^Pittsburgh (Ellis 78), N Cincinnati (T.

The Orioles got their final run in the ninth on an RBI single by Crosby Seeks Women For PGA Tour Event I.OS ANGELES (AP) -- Bing' Crosby is crooning a new tune with lyrics that should lift the spirits women's liberation supporters. Bing has asked the Professional Golfers Association for permission to invite women to participate i n . the 1975 Bing Crosby National Pro-Am tourney at Pebble Beach, Calif. Larry Crosby, brother of the famed singer and director of the rich golf event, told The Associated Press Monday: "Bing wrote to the PGA on Aug. 1 to see if it would be possible to have a couple of gals play. "The idea was all Bing's," he said, "perhaps because the public has been clamoring for more women's involvement ; " sports." There was no immediate reaction from the PGA, the players division or the Ladies Pro tessional Golfers Association. Confirmation of Crosby's letter to the PGA, however, came from Ted Durein, press director of the major tournament He said Crosby asked the PGA for approval in a letter sent to Deane Beman, head of the Tournament Players Division ol the PGA in Washington, D.C Beman was unreachable a his Bethesda, Md., home, and a PGA Tournament Players Divi sion spokesman in Washington said he had not seen the letter. Durein said tourney official women were, permitted, II would be the first time in the history of pro golf that men and women competed on the same course for the same title and prize money. "Bing thinks it would be a great idea," said Durein, bu he added t h a t the PGA "is ometimes a little stuffy so I vouldn't bet on it." The Crosby, which was in augurated at Rancho Santa Fi n 1939, moved to the ruggec easide location in 1947. It's the only tourney on the pro tour in vhich amateurs play with pro essionais for the entire event. Larry Crosby said if womer vere permitted to play in th event, "I personally don't thin! hey would have a chance." H said the four courses which ar ised for the Crosby are amon the toughest in the world, an often the golfers have to baltl ligh winds and even rain an ilect. · The 1975 tourney is slated fo Jan. 23-26.
