The Pirates didn't get any home runs, but made the best of two weak singles, a walk, a wild pitch, a passed ball, two infield grounders and some alert baserunning to beat t h e New York Mets 4-3. The victories kept the Cards in first place in the NL East, one-half game ahead of Pittsburgh. Elsewhere in the National League, Los Angeles beat San Diego 2-1, San Francisco edged Cincinnati 4-3, Atlanta 'blanked Houston 1-0 -and Philadelphia whipped Montreal 10-2. Cards 5, Cubs 2 Mike Tyson opened the Cards' big inning with a walk, pitcher Bob Forsch sacrificed and was safe at first base on a Oilers Endanger Surprising Unbeaten Mark Against Browns By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS In the past two National Football League seasons, Houston victories were a contradiction in terms. The Oilers won regular season games as often as the Miami Dolphins look home the Super Bowl.* The Oilers have viewed victories in moral terms because their statistical ones were singular. For 1972, the record book said 1-13 and 1973 was no improvement whatsoever. Here it is 1974, the season is one game old and the Oilers are 1-0. Now they only hope they aren't victims of some sort of quota system. Houston brings its undefeated season into Cleveland Sunday to face the Browns, who have beaten the Oilers all eight times the two clubs have gotten together. Besides the Oilers, 11 other teams risk undefeated records Sunday when the second week of Ihe NFL season swings into action with Miami at Buffalo. St. Louis at Washington, Kansas City at Oakland, New Orleans at Los Angeles, Minnesota at Detroit, San Diego at Cincinnati, San Francisco at Atlanta, the New York Jets at Chicago, Pittsburgh at Denver, Green Bay at Baltimore a n d New England at New Haven, Conn, to play the New York Giants.

The Broncos lost a close one to the Rams last week but hold a 3-0 career edge over Pitlsburgh. Joe Namalh and Abe Gibron will both be avaiable for the Jels-Bears clash. Namalh has a bad back in addilion to a chronically sore right knee. Gibron spenl the early part of Ihe week hospitalized for treatment of a left leg afflicted by cellutitis and phlebitis^, but insisted he would be on the sidelines Sunday. San Diego stands in the way of Cincinnati's 15th consecutive home victory. The Chargers, 01, lead the league in total offense with 411 yards. Baltimore quarterback Marty Domrcs was hurt in last week's 30-0 loss to Pittsburgh but is expected back against the Packers. So is Jerry Tagge who was h u r t by Ihrce interceptions in Green Bay's 32-17 loss to Minnesota.
