Pirates Continue To Stunible By TIIK I'llESS The Chicago Cubs used Joe Pepitone's iiinlh inning liomcr for a 3-0 victory over San Diego Padres Sunday and took over second place in the National League East division, one game back of the staggering Pitts- burgh Pirates. Pittsburgh dropped both ends of a double- header, 7-3 and 2-1 to San Fran- cisco Giants. The Mels dropped their third straight to Houston Astros 9-5. It was New York's sixth loss in the last seven games but over that stretch, the Mets have ac- tually gained one-half game in the division race, and arc two games back. Fourth place St. Louis Caidi- nals are games behind and Philadelphia Phillies, in fifth place, are back- Don't count out Montreal Expos either. They're only 12V4 out. Elsewhere in the NL Sunday, St. Louis shaded Los Angeles Dodgers 2-1, Montreal clipped Cincinnati Reds 5-1 and Phila- delphia defeated Atlanta Braves 4-2. PEPITONE BREAKS OUT Bill Hands of the Cubs and San Diego's Dave Roberts were locked in a scoreless duel through eight innings. Then. Jim Hickman and Ron Santo drew walks and Joe Pepi- tone ripped his 20th home run of the year and sixth since moving from Houston to the Cubs. That was plenty for Hands, who scat- tered seven hits and won his 15th game. Roberts, 5-12, has dropped nine straight decisions. The Mets got off to a three- run lead on Dorm Clendenon's first ir.ning homer but it was all downhill after that. Jimmy Wynn and Denis Menke rattled two homers apiece for the As- tros, who took their third straight from New York. Don Wilson went six innings and got the victory with Jim Ray and Fred Gladding finish- ing up. Nolan Ryan absorbed the loss. The Pirates continued to co- operate with the Mets by losing too. Willie McCovey drove in two runs with a double and his 34th homer and scored three runs in San Francisco's first game victory. It was Pittsburgh's fifth con- secutive loss and the streak stretched to six when Ron Bryant tossed a six-hitter at them in the nightcap. The Giants' winning run was driven in on a sacrifice fly in the bot- tom of the eighth by John Sle- phenson, appropriately enough, a former Met. Steve Carlton fired a three- Leeds Earn Shutout LONDON (CP) Leeds United easily defeated Burnley 3-0 Saturday to register its fifth successive victory and maintain its two-point lead in the English League soccer. Leeds' victory was never In doubt after forwards Allan Clarke and Mick Jones scored in the first nine minutes. Clarke added the third goal before half-time and Leeds coasted to victory. Manchester Gity, reigning Eu- ropean Cup Winners cup-holder, emerged as Leeds' closet rival with a 1-0 win over defending English League champion Ever- ton. Everton, still without a win after five games this season, succumbed to a fifth-minute goal by City's World Cup for- ward Colin Bell. Leeds leads the First Division with 10 points, two points ahead of Manchester City. Four clubs share third place with seven points from five games.

He took fives on the next four holes, all par fours. "I just blew the strokes he said, but added that he wasn't worried about losing. He had rounds of 09, 67 and 68 and was even par after the first three rounds. A threc-under-par 65 in the final round gave Paul Davis of Don Mills, Ont., the runner-up position.
