By TH) ASSOCIATED PRESS Los Angeles Dodgers fire moving up fast on tlie fading San Francisco Giants, who have held a eomfortablt lead in the West Division of the National League for most of the season. Monday night, Die Dodgers sliced San Francisco's lead to smallest margin since July a 6-5 victory over St. Louis Cardinals and Bob Gibson. In the only other major league gamp Monday Boston Red Sox outslugged Detroit Ti- gers 12-11 in an afternoon con- test in the American League. The D o d g e r s, who have trimmed the Giants lead since falling nine games back Aug. 1, blasted Cardinal pitching for 15 hits, including foui each by Wes Parker and Willie Davis. "It's the best we've hit in a long said manager Walt Alston, whose Dodgers trail the Giants by only three games in the Joss column. San Francisco has lost seven of its last eight games. The Dodgers pounded Gibson for 14 hits in seven innings in Facilities poor at Pan-Am site TORONTO (CP) About 80 members of Canada's Pan- American Games team re- turned to Canada Monday night, blaming frustration for their early departure from the Games which end later this week. The athletes, most of them from track and field, were to remain in Cali, Colombia, until the end of the Games, even through their events were completed. But Mike Mercer, a bronze medal winner in the shot put, said from his home in Oak- ville, Ont.: "We just wanted to get the hell out of there." Jenny Meldrum of Toronto, a contestant in the hurdles and pentathlon, said: "It was difficult enough we were competing, but just to sit there and vegetate for another week "The reason we came back was simple. There was abso- lutely no track-and-field train- ing facilities and we have a very important national meet at Winnipeg Aug. 21 which de- termines the Canadian team for a dual meet in Italy in September." But both Mrs. Meldrum and Mercer cited other reasons. "If you didn't have dysen- tery, you were Mrs. Meldrum said. Sanitary conditions were poor, she added. Mercer said the frustration "gets you." "There were 14 people sleeping in my room. We were on bunkbeds and it was a very small room. The showers didn't shot cold water like out of a tube. But there wasn't water to brush your teeth." beating him for the third straight time this season. Parker doubled following a Cardinal error in the second in- ning, before Duke Sims belted a two-run double. After Use Cards tied it on Dal Maxvil''s two-run single in the bottom of the sec- ond, the Dodgers again took a two-run lead in the third on sin- gles by Bill Buckner, Davis, Willie Crawford and Parker. Davis singled home a run in the fourth, and Parker doubled in the seventh and scored the final Los Angeles run on a sin- gle by Al Downing. The Cards added a run i: the third, and Ted Sizemore singled in two more run- in the eighth before Jim Brewer came in and pre- served Downing's 14th victory. Richie Allen was a lata scratch from the Dodger lineup for the second lime this season. Allen, the club leader in runs baited in, overslept and didn't get to the ballpark until the start of Ihe game. Rico Petrocelli, making his first pinch-hitting appearance of (lie season after being given a rest, capped the wild Boston-De- troit slugfest with a run-scoring single in the ninth inning. The hit was the 33rd in the game and scored John Kennedy, who had doubled: Rookie catcher Bob Montgo- mery drove in six Boston runs with a two-run double in the second and his first major league grand-slam homer dur- ing an eight-run fourth. Detroit's Bill Freehan drilled three solo homers, Willie Horton smashed two homers and drove in five runs, and Aiirelio Rodri- guez cracked a solo homer. The game was enl'vened by a melee in the sixth inning when Detroit reliever Bill Denehy hit Boston oulfieic'er Reggie Smith with a pitch on his back just below the right shoulder.
