Bul Manager Danny Mur- atigh, for one, was less cerlajn ibout his leam's chances in the emainder of a three-game leries resuming tonight. "No, I'm never surprised to ,ee Brock try for third," re- ated Murtaugh after the Pirates threw out the fleet out- ielder in the eighth inning. "He doesn't gel thrown out .hat often." Murtaugh added. "I was glad lo see him try only after he was thrown out." PITCHING DUEL A scoreless pitching battle ivas in process when Brock grounded into a force play against Pittsburgh's Jim Roo ier with none out in the eighth Two pitches later he stole second for his record 115th theft of the season and on the next pitch he sailed for third . Hooker's delivery was inside forcing Ted Sizemore to leai back, and catcher Manny Sang uillcn's throw had Brock at the bag. The importance of Ihe aborted thefl was magnified when Sizemore, on a 3-1 count later singled sharply up tin middle to no avail. But Brock, in recounting lb incident, noled, "Everything was perfect unlil the throw What made the play," he said "was Ihe fad lhat Sizemor went down." Also supporting the gambli e had taken was Murlaugh vho insisted, "It takes a bang rang play to get him."

"But we hadn't scored a ru n 19 innings.'.' he explains "We're on the r o a d , and thought il might be a good tin to get something started." Pittsburgh will send Brin Kison, 7-8, to the mound tonig against the Cards' John Curti 9-13, with the division lead stake. "This game meant only th we're one game closer to t' lop," emphasized Murlaug who refused lo celeorate club's triumph.
