And Bake McBride was get- ng a little tired waiting round for something to hap- en, which explains why the ardinals won a 4-3 decision in 5 innings, the second longest ame in major league history. McBride had opened the 25th -- yes, 25th -- with an'infield ingle and was leading off first ase when Cards' Manager Red choendienst flashed the hit- nd-run sign. "I was leaning," aid McBride, "leaning back on ny heels, resting." He was entitled to the breath- r. After all,'he'd been in cen- er field from the start, some even hours earlier. Hank Webb, the sixth Mets' pitcher, ecided a pickoff throw might je a good idea. It was, but 'here Webb threw it wasn't. The high throw got past first laseman John Milner for an er- and McBride was on his vay. "I figured I could get to bird," he said, "Then, when I urned second, I said to myself. I'm going all the way.'" McBride steamed around hird, never looking for a stop ^r go sign from coach Vern 3enson. "He was going too fas q see any sign anway," de cided Benson. Milner retrieved the ball ant threw to the plate and McBridi slid across just as catcher Ron lodges dropped the ball. As plate umpire Ed Sudol sig nailed him safe, McBride lay the ground, seeminglj stunned that the tie-breakinj run had finally scored. "Ther was dirt in my eyes, dirt every where," he said. "I was tired. At seven hours, four minutes t was the longest night game in major league history, both in ;erms of time and in terms o innings. And it fell only one in ning short of the all-time mara Ihon record, a 26-inning dandy between the Brooklyn Dodger and Boston Braves May 1, 1920 Ironically, the Mets were on out away from a regulatio nine-inning victory. Jerry Koos man was leading 3-1 with three-hitter when Ken Rcit tagged him for a two-out, two run homer that tied the game. Given that second life, th Cards hung on until McBride legs delivered the victory tha moved them to within 2? games of first-place Pittsburg in the National League's Eas Division, In the St. Louis dressin room, Reggie Smith delivered a warning to his married team mates. "There's, no way," h said, "that your wives are gi ing to believe you guys wer out playing baseball all night.' Phils 8, Pirates 5 The Pirates not only lost the ame, they lost their ace pitch- r when a line drive by Philae 1 p h i a ' s Willie Montane: ruck Dock Ellis on the right and, fractured a bone and nocked the Pirate star out of he lineup for at least three eeks. The other damage done by a hiladelphia bat was Bill Rob nson's three-run eighth-inning ome run, which broke a 5-5 tie nd sent the Phillies to victory Bob Robertson and Art Howe it homers as the losers built a -2 lead entering the Phila- elphia seventh. Dodgers 5, Giants 4 Center fielder Garry Maddov lade a two-run error on Ron 'ey's sixth-inning line drive elping the Dodgers break a 2 2 ie and record their victory ver the Giants. Padres 2, Astros 0 Rookie Mike Ivie hit a two- un homer in the seventh in- ling to back the three-hit pitch- ng of rookie Dan Spillner and arry the Padres past the As- ros. Expos 6-13, Cubs 1-4 Willie Davis's two-run home run sparked the Expos' four- run first inning and set them on the way to a rout of the Cubs in he second game after Mike Jorgensen clubbed two homers to lead Montreal in the first game. Braves 1, pcds 1 Rain washed out the contest . the fifth inning, and .the game was to be replayed com- iletely as part of a double- leader today, although the sta- ;istics counted toward the regular season records.
