Brock got up and on the next pitch to the plate stole second base. Before the day was over Brock stole two more. He is now only six short of the record held by Maury Wills. More importantly St. Louis won the game 8-1 to stay in the race /or the Eastern Division crown SAN FRANCISCO (AP) "The time is ripe to break the record," said St. Louis Cardinals' speedster Lou Brock after he proved that point emphatically against the San Francisco Giants. Tlie 35-year-old Brock stole the Giants blind Sunday and became the second-best single- season f3ase thief in baseball history'with 98 after streaking to four steals in an 8-1 rout. Brock stole second in the third inning and equaled Ty Cobb's once-legendary 96 thefts In the sixth. Then he crowned his brilliant performance by stealing second and third in the eighth in pursuit of Maury Wills' record. Wills, who stole 104 bases in 1962, didn't record No. 98 until the Dodger's 157th game Sept. 25. Brock's No. 98 came in the Cardinals' I34th contest--and his 126th. "Everyone expects me to break it, so I might as well try with a record in St. Lous mow, the closer you come, the mrder it gets. "It will be nice to break the record, but that certainly wasn't my goal when the season started," Brock explained after stealing four bases [or the :huxl time as much in his career, surprised as "I'm any "I've never seen anyone IJIte' Brock," offered Giants' catcher Dave Rader, the victim along with pitchers Ed Halicki, Randy Molfitt and John Morris. "He has everything down--timing, speed, acceleration." St. Louis second baseman Ted Sizcmore, who also played on the same club with Wills at Los Angeles added: "Maury took a bigger load than Lou and he mastered different slides to get around the tag. "Brock's speed is so great, he can compensate if he makes an error," Sizemore said. "Lou just goes right for the hug. There's nothing fancy about tho y he steals bases, but ha sure gels there quickly." Carter, Adams Clash In Anaheim Passing Duel Shaping Up In WFL with a record in St. Louis." said Brock.

The Cleveland kicking specialist's pass to Van Green Sunday proved to be an integral c o m e b a c k , producing t w o touchdowns in the last 30 seconds of the National Football League exhibition.
