By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Any resemblance belween Ihe Pitlsburgh Pirates of 1972 and the world champions of 1371 has been purely coincidenlal ujilil Wednesday night. After their pitching slaff was ballered in six straight games, all losses, the Pirates snapped out of their doldrums with a 3-2 victory over Houston Astros on the six-hit hurling of Dock Ellis and Bruce Kison and Rennie Stennelt's two-run triple. "Just because you win one game doesn't take any heat said freshman manager Bill Virdon, "but it's always nice to break the ice." Elsewhere in the National League, New York Mets whipped San Francisco Giants B-5, Chicago Cubs trounced At- lanta Braves 12-1, Philadelphia Phillies cut down Los Angeles Dodgers 5-1, St. Louis Cardinal? edged Cincinnati Reds 2-1 and San Diego Padres mpped Mont- real Expos 3-2 in 14 innings. Pittsburgh nicked Houslon starter Jerry Keuss for an un- earned run in the first inning when Dave Cash walked, stole second, went to third oa shorts- lop Roger Melzger's error and scored on Manny Sanguillen's sacrifice fly. STENNETT TRIPLES S t e n n e 11, normally an in- fielder but slalioned in left Held lor ailing slugger Willie Slar- gell, tripled in the second fol- lowing Richie Hebner's single and another walk to Cash. Ellis, meanwhile, looked sharp in his first appearance since he injured his heel April 20 and kept the Astros scoreless until the sixth, when Metzger doubled and Lee May singled. Kison, a World Series hero, was touched for a run in the seventh on John Edwards' sin- gle, a wild pilch and Korm Mille's pinch double, bul the youngster slammed the door after that: striking out, Doug Radcr and Tommy Helms to end the game. The Giants concluded one of the worst home Elands in San Francisco's major league his- tory with a 2-11 record by losing lo the Mets. Tommie Agee led the New York attack with two doubles and a run-scoring single while Jim Fregosi and Ted Mar- tinez each tripled. Rookie' Jon Matlack won his third game in a row but was kayoed in a three-run eighth, featuring Dave Kiiigman's two- run Iriple. The Cubs clobbered Atlanta 12-1 for the second straight game as Jose Cardenal drove in five runs with a triple, double and two singles, Billy Williams cracked a three run homer and Jim Hickman delivered a solo shot. Fergie Jenkins hurled a six- bitter to even his record at 2-2 but complained that the Cubs' new jerseys affected his stylo. "I wss missing a lot of pitches I don't usually he said, "but Uiese new double-knil jerseys seem lo grab me under the arm and restrict my deliv- ery. I'm going to ask them to make Ihe holes bigger on tho right sleeve." Steve Carlion pitched a six- hitler and Don Money provided Ihe game-winning hil wilh a two-run double in Ihe fourth in- ning as Philadelphia topped Los Angeles. Carllon struck out nine Dodg- ers enroute lo his fourth victory in five decisions this year. He got all the supporl he needed when Money came through with a bases-loaded double in Ihe fourth, scoring Tim McCarver and Willie Mojitancz. Leron Lee greeted reliever Denny Lcmasler with a run- scoring single in the Hth inning, giving San Diego its win over Montreal. Lemaster relieved Tom Walker after Enxo Hernan- dez slole second, but Leo sin- filed home the winning run. Clay Kirby, the San Diego starter, pitched six hilless in-' nings before Ron Hunl doubled leading off the seventh.

"Both teams played a much belter game tonight and the fans certainly got their money's worth." said Hit Guelph coach. "We'll have to play as well or better to beat them in (lie next game." The line of Paul Fendlcy, John Ilaight and Bruce Iler- ridge. was Guelpb's most dan- gerous unit while Red Deer's most effective combination was the lino of Dale Lewis, Gordie Dillon and Darryl Wallis.
