While Brock Steals 2 More Garrett's Blast Dooms Redbirds ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Fiery Wayne Garrclt of the New York Mets figures lie boat more than the St. Louis Cardinals with his llth home run of the season Sunday. After scuttling the Cards 5-3 with a three-run wallop in the eithth inning, the red-haired infielder passed along his compliments also to the plate umpire. "He (John McSherry) called me out on the same pitch in the third inning." commented Gar rett. who teed off on a 3-2 Lynn McGlothen delivery to c a p four-run Mets' rally. "And he would have called me out again if I hadn't swung." he declared. "It was a high curve up around my eyes. It wasn't a strike." Garrett. whose drive dropped the Cards 2% games behind the Pittsburgh Pirates in the Na- lioinal League East, said he was s u r p r i s e d to be facing McGlolhen, 16-9. "I was thinking about it," acknowledged Cards' Manager Red Schoendicnst, "b u t Mc- Glolhen wa sthrowing g o o d . He pitched bad the first few innings, then he pitched real well." Overshadowed by a Mets burst snapping a 1-1 tie and a Jards six-game win streak was more spectacular base-running by Lou Brock, who swiped his 102nd nnd 103rd bases. In drawing one from the major league record of 104 set by Maury Wills, Brock also tied the NL career mark of 738 set by the Pirates' Max Carey in 1929. "Outstanding pitchers do not have good moves," asserted Brock, who victimized the Mets' Tom Seaver in the first and eighth innings. "Nobody's on base againsl hem thai much," he explained. 'Who are they going to prac- :ice against? I can't get overly anxious to steal No. 104 and No. 105 to beat Wills," a d d e d Brock, whose thefts came in the Cards' 140th of 162 games. "It I were to change my style and put a kind of emphasis on the record then I'd really ' frustrated," he noted. "Our top emphasis or priority right now has to be on winning ball games. And winning w a s some-thing we didn't do today." Seaver, 10-8, restricted 'the Cards to four hits through seven innings, then ignited the vinning Mels burst with ingle in the eighth. He advanced on a sacrifice and Felix Millan (lied out before Ed Kranepool followed a Cards conference at the mound with John i lie-breaking hit and Milner was purposely walked. "Red just asked .me whether I'd rather pitch to Kranepool or Milner," McGlothen, who after ward succumbed to the Garretl blasl. "I elected to go with Krane pool," he added, "but I though both the pitch to him and the one to Garrett were good pitch Professional Baseball National League East W L 76 63 74 66 B9 71 64 73 61 76 56 81 Pittsburgh St. Louis Philaphia New Yok Montreal Chicago West Los Angeles 87 52 Cincinnati 84 56 Atlanta 78 Houston San Fran «an Diego Pet. .547 .529 .493 .467 .445 .409 GB 7% 11 14 19 63 .625 .600 .553 3V4 10 16 23% 37 71 64 76 .457' 51 90 :362 Sunday's Results .

Davis Pleased With Blocking B Of Bulldogs' Offensive Line By GRANT HALL TIMES Sports Editor Fayetteville Coach Doyne Davis was generally pleased with his Bulldog football team after looking at film of their 14-6 win over Bentonville Friday night. "The offensive line blocked Sunday. "We weren't polished enough to pitch the ball well, but that wasn't the line's fault. We had a good gain set up when we lost a pitchout near the goal line. "That discouraged me from calling the play again. But we've got to get our outside ·unning game going. Both Brian Hicks and Michael Jackson and Arthur Budd did a gooc ob blocking at wingback." Davis continued, "Defensively, we're light, but we had gooc pursuit Friday. We have some Kople who can h i t . Dayton jerley, John McCutcheon Scott Mundy and Greg McClel land all played well." Davis was a little disappoin led that the Bulldogs didn't ge the ball to split end 'Rick Tay lor, the team's fastest . player "We threw six passes," he said "Lawson (Osburn) completec three intended for Rick were incomplete. 'Still, Rick is a valuable wid receiver even if he doesn' catch , a pass, because th( efense has -to respect his otential to go the distance. He's oing to pay off tor us there, j But we'll work hard this week ] at getting the ball to him." s STREIGLER READY ' Davis said that defensive »ack Striegler could have jlayed against Bentonville i the Bulldogs had needed him. "Keith had a car wreck before he season and injured a calf muscle. It's taken him awhile to recover. But he'll probably ilay this week against Springfield Kickapoo." Striegler and Clark Lewis were the starting defensive lalfbacks for Fayetteville last year. Scott Stanberry joinied Lewis Friday night flnd "did a good job," according to Davis. Off the results of the first football weekend in Arkansas, Davis figures the AAA-West conference is stronger than most people anticipated. "We saw Rogers almost tie Fort S m i t h Northside Thursday nighl," he said. "Then on Friday, Southsidc beat North Little Rock Ole Main. "Russellville beat Benton, and that scares me 'to death. Conway lost to North Little Rock Northeast, but lookec good. And Springdale bea Spiro, Okla., one of the top AA s teams in Oklahoma."
