LOUIS AP) -- The St. Louis Cardinals are 2V4 games ahead of the rest of the Nalion- Division, and Schoenclictist says he'll take his chances at winning the division title. "We've got to win .ball games, that's all," Schoendienst said Sunday. "Right now I'd say our pitch ing is in good shape," added the Cards managed. "I'd say il we stay on an even keel we've ol as good a.chance as .any- ody." , Schoendienst's o p t i m i s m stemmed partly from the fourth straight triumph decision over the San ?rancisco Giants, and partly 'rom the race since the All-Star break. The games behind on July 25, :he Cards have since won 19 of 28 games. Although the surging Pittsburgh Pirates have won 25 of 35, their mark is 17-10 since the All-Star game.and that of the Cards' a 4-1 Molorcross Riders Gamer Bruises Philadelphia Phillies 13-13. "They've all got chance," Schochdieiist acknowledged in respect to the Cards' opposition. "The Pirates have heller pitching than they had lasl year, anil the Phillies are a good club." Sunday, the Cants won on five-hit pitching Irom left-hand- er John Curtis, 7-11, and an unexpected bonus from Curtis' bat. His team held a 2-0 lead when the 26-year-old Curtis delivered a two-run singled in the sixth inning that helped topple the Giants' Tom Bradley, 7-11. "Bradley struck me out with fast balls the first two times up'," noted Curtis', who hac fanned 23 of 44 previous times at bat. "I think he sort of semi-piped one," added the Cards pitcher whose hit scored bake McBride and Tim McCarver. "All I was looking for was the fast ball You like to be a b l e to help yourself out." The victory wrapped up a e-i Cards home stand and sent the club to Atlanta, where newcomer Claude Osteen, 9-9, is 1 ace the Braves' Carl Morton, 12-7, in the opener of a three- game series tonight. After the three .games, the Cards moved on to Los Ang les, San Diego and San Francisco before returning home Sept. 2 against the Montreal Expos. "There are a lot of bail games to go," observed Schoendicnst, "but we're not looking over our shoulders. The only time I look behind me is when my hunting dog points that way."

PITCHING (12 Decisions)-- Tiant, Bsn, 19-8, .704. 2.96 Bucs Thump Dodgers 10-3; Cincy Wins 6-5 By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Jim Wynn says Los Angeles' 10-3 thumping Sunday at the hands of the Pittsburgh Pirates may be just what the heeling Dodgers needed . . . and it came in handy for the Cincinnati Reds, too. While the Dodgers were suffering their sixth consecutive setback, the Reds were edging the New York Mets 6-5 to climb within 2'A games of front-running Los Angeles in the National League's West Division. The Dodgers' margin is the smallest since they led Houston by two games on May 9 and it s the closest the Reds have been since they trailed by three games way back on April 25. They were 1014 out as recently ; mid-July. Elsewhere, the St. Louis Cardinals downed the San Francisco Giants 4-1, the Philadelphia Phillies turned back the Atlanta Braves 7-4, the Houston Astros blanked the Montreal Expos 3-0 and the Chicago Cub:, clobbered the San Diego Padres 14-6. Center fielder Wynn offered his theory after the Pirates pounded out 17. hits, most against the Dodgers this sea son, including home runs by Bob Robertson and Richie Zisk The Dodgers' have scorec only 11 runs in their six-game slide. Sunday's assault agains' Geoff Zahn and three relievers also included two doubles by Robertson, one apiece by Zisk and Rennie Stennett, a two-run single by Willie Stargell ant seven-hit pitching by Larr Demery and Dave Giusti.
