PITTSBURGH (A') - Winning isn't everything
in the National League East. Look at the Pitts-
burgh Pirates who, despite a lackluster record,
are bidding to overtake first-place St. Louis.
The Pirates, 61-62 with a month to go in the
season, already have lost more games than they
did last year when they won their third straight
divisional title with a 96-59 record,
FOR A TIME THIS SEASON, the Pirates ap-
peared to be nearly out of contention, falling 10 /
games behind Chicago on June 27 when they lost
15-4 to the Cardinals.
Since that time the Cardinals and Cubs have
fallen on hard times, while the Pirates have
slowly crept to within a few percentage points
of first place.
Though the Pirates are making a serious bid
for their fourth straight division title, this year's
club is in a different class from the 1972 team.
As slugger Willie Stargell points out:
"WE WON MORE GAMES than any team in
baseball last season, but we didn't even get into
the World Series, let alone win it.
"Maybe this year we'll wind up with the worst
record of any divisional champion and then go
on and win the whole thing."
Pittsburgh moves into Atlanta tonight for a
week-end series with the Braves. Then the club
goes to Cincinnati next Tuesday before returning
Cubs snea

home Aug. 31 for back-to-back series with the
Cubs and Cardinals.
THE PIRATES are breathing heavily on the
Cardinals despite an unimpressive record; an
ace pitcher last year who is now in mothballs;
a rash of hitters whose batting averages have
dropped off considerably from last year and the
loss of Roberto Clemente.
Steve Blass, with a 19-11 record last year, ap-
parently has been salted away in the bullpen to
work out his troubles. He has a 3-7 record and
a10.40 earned run average. Manager Bil Virdon
states simply that he has no plans to use Blass
for the time being.
HERE ARE the averages of several Pirates
after 120 games last year compared to this year:
Gene Clines, .337-.276; Rennie Stennett, .283-
.248; Richie Hebner, .314-.267 and Al Oliver, .310-
Then there was Clemente, whose .305 average
gave the Pirates six players batting over .300.
HE'S GONE, a victim of a plane crash, and his
loss obviously is incalculable.
If the Pirates should win the division again,
the feat could be as impressive as last year's
title, just because of the obstacles they would
have overcome.



CHICAGO (IP)-"I just tried to
find a hole because it meant the
ballgame," said Don Kessinger
yesterday after singling home the
winning run in the 10th for a
rain-soaked 4-3 Chicago Cub vic-
tory over the Cincinnati Reds.
Kessinger's blow scored Ran-
dy Hundley from third after a
great throw to the plate from
left by Pete Rose on an earlier
pinch single by Jim Hickman
cut down a potential winning run
in the Cubs' two-run 10th.
The victory enabled the Cubs
to complete a three-game sweep
over the Reds.
The muddy contest came to a
tense finish with Cincinnati mov-
ing to a 3-2 lead in the top of
the 10th before the Cubs wrapped
it up in their half of the inning.

OPENING THE Cub 10th, Ron
Santo made it all the way to
second base when pitcher Clay
Carroll overthrew first on San-
to's leadoff grounder. Jose Car-
denal sacrificed pinch runner
Matt Alexander to third and Paul
Popovich's single scored Alexan-
der for a 3-3 tie.
Hundley's single moved Popo-
vich to second but then on Hick-
man's single, Rose's perfect
throw nailed Popovich at the
plate for the second out. Then
came Kessinger's game-winning
"My thought was that you got
to forget about the weather when
you got a chance to win the
game," said Kessinger. "Any
kind of a base hit would have
won it."

"IT WAS A mudhole all the
way," said Santo, who hit a lead-
off homer in the second to tie
the score at 1-1.
Williams' error in the top of
the 10th allowed Darrel Chaney
to score all the way from sec-
ond base, giving the Reds a 3-2
lead. Chaney, who had doubled,
came around to score as Williams
fielded Pete Rose's grounder and
threw wild to first. Rose went to
second on the play.
The 'Reds had tied the game
2-2 in the eighth on a wild pitch
by Chicago reliever Bob Lock-
er, allowing Chaney, running for
Hal King, to score from third.
bunt had put the Cub's in front
2-1 in the fifth inning. The two
teams exchanged solo homers in
the second inning, Andy Kosco
hitting one for the Reds and
Santo retaliating for Chicago.
Locker, who picked up his sixth
victory i- 11 decisions, took over
from Cb starter Bill Bonham in
the eighth after Bonham had al-
lowed just four hits and struck
out nine batters. It was Bonham
who ended the Cubs' 11-game
losing streak last Friday with a
5-1 decision over the Los Angeles
