It pushed his winnings to $316,383 for the;, season; and 3ave him an . insurmountable ead of more than'586,000 in th'~e money-winning race. He nailed it down with a gorgeous, three w o o d second shot on the second hole of sudder death, a shot that came to resl only eight feet from the cup and set up a winning, two-putt birdie. "That kind of intimidatec them," he said, "that was the whole tournament. It's got to ]e the greatest shot under pressure I ever made." Miller, Nicklaus, Beard anc Murphy all finished the regulation 72 holes at 281, three under par on h e famed No. 2 course at the Pinehurst Country Club.

To Decide NL East Race PHILADELPHIA ' (AP) -National League E a s t lamplonship apparently is go- g to be decided in the bullpen lere the leading St. Louis ardinals have a decided ad- antage over the runnerup itlsburgh Pirates. Tlie point was driven home _;ain Sunday as the Cardinals, th reliever Al Hrabosky. res-, uing them in the ninth, beat e Philadelphia Phillies -3-1. le Pirates, without the serves of ace,saver Dave Giusti, st to Montreal 5-4.' .. . v. ....

He bailed the ards out by striking out Willie ontanez, Greg Luzinski and nch-hltted Tony Taylor. As a result, the Cardinals eaded for Pittsburgh for a ree-game series, 1'A games lead of the fading Pirates and x. games in front of the all-- ut - mathematically dead hillies. .. .. , Hrabosky was' asked what he as thinking :about"C\yhQi4^1ie' rc- °.aced MUie^G.difna^.' ithe .icky ninlh-iflnhig situation: "I thought lo : myself, 'I've ot to get them .out'," Hrabosky recalled in the hilarity of the 1 St. Lou is 'dressing room. "If I blow it we're back in second. It '. get 'em out the pressure Is on ,hem (the Pirates)." Hrabosky had read the scoreboard, noting that Pittsburgh was leading Montreal at the time. "It was thrilling to be able to determine fate," he said. ; Hrabosky did his job. He came in throwing nothing but smoking fastballs, retiring the Phillies, and left the Pirates. in Montreal looking , at .-a '3-1 St.: Louis vlctorj;/ on, t n e .-scoreboard. . ·-" ! ,"; I ' v i ' !·' ;. ·'· ' T h e pressure . Hrabosky :alked about apparently did get to the Pirates, who went on to lose to Montreal. While the Cards celebrated, the Phillies sat in stony silence, most of them staring into lockers. In Manager Danny 'Ozark's office, the baseball writers second guessed the Phillie' skipper. In the eighth, trailing 2-0, why did he allow light-hitting catcher -Lardy Gox- to-bat?- Why did he let losing pitcher Steve . . ' · Ozark patiently explained that Cox already had a hit off Bob Forsch and was a good sinker ball hitter. . "If Cox gets on, I pinch hit for Steve (Carlton)," Ozark said. "When Cox made the second out, I felt that with two outs Carlton was almost comparable (at the bat) to what I had on the bench. I've got singles hitters following him, so it would take three or four nits to tie it." Ozark also explained that with runners at first and third and none out in the ninth, he didn't have Montanez bunting because Hrabosky was a fastball pitcher who was tough to biintCbn. ' ; ·;..' ' S o . ' m u c h for the strategy. How about Carlton losing his 12th against 14 losses? The big lefthander has not won since Aug. 6. What's the problem? "Steve's location has been erratic," Ozark said. "He needs better concenration on where he is throwing." Carlton has walked 123 batters this season in 259 1/3 innings. He walked himself into a jam Sunday in the fourth inning. Ted Simmons and Joe Torre walked as the first two hitjers in the fourth and both' scored. Ken Reitz singled home one and Forsch, who earned his till wtn against (our losses, oubled In the other. "The slider to Forsch was an xample of Steve's location roblem," Ozark s a i d . "Ha idn't want to throw it up in his yes, but he did." Someone wrote that Carlton acks the killer Instinct. Both pitcher and his manager eny that charge. Carlton admits he doesn't now what is causing the prol em with his control, but he in- ists everything will be okay. He's had trouble with his slider result isn't ch all en g- rigi ; »a' 'lot of hitters in deep ouhts the way he once did. St. Louis' final run came in le ninth on a triple by Ted immons and Torre's single. Forsch retired the first 10 alters, then gave up a walk, etired five more, than allowed single to Cox.
