"I didn't figure I was going to go all season without said Gibson, 1-5, after scattering seven hits as St. Louis Cardi- nals stopped Pittsburgh Pirates' nine-game winning streak 4-2. Pattin, 1-5, who allowed only four hits, struck out nine and was aided by a triple play in pitching Boston Red Sox over Baltimore Orioles 2-1 said: "That takes the pressure off." Lockwood, H, who hurled a six-hitter and outduelled De- troit's Mickey Lolich as Milwau- kee Brewers blanked the Tigers 2-0, said: "They popped up on good pitches and bad." WIN WITH WILLIE In Thursday 's only other games, New York Mets edged Chicago Cubs 3-2 on Willie Mays' 14lh-inning single, New York Yankees shaded Cleveland Indians 2-0, Minnesota Twins nipped Texas Rangers 6-5 and Kansas City Royals beat Cali- fornia Angels 5-2. Gibson's fast ball was in good form and he struck out 10 Pir- ates, getting Richie Hebner three times although the Pitts- burgh third baseman homered in the sixth. By then, Gibson had a 3-1 lead with Ted Size- more belting his first home run of the season and Lou Brock scoring tire first on Matty Alou's single and in the third on a double play grounder. Pattin fell behind "the Orioles 1-0 in the second inning when Don Baylor cracked his fifth home run. But the Red Sox lied it quickly in the third on Tommy Harper's double and Luis Aparicio's single off Pat Dobson. Aparicio then came around with the winning run on a stolen base, fly ball and Ellie Hendricks' passed ball. A triple play took Pattin out of trouble in the fourth inning. With runners at first and sec- ond, Hendricks lined to first baseman Duane Josephson, who stepped on the bag for the sec- ond out and threw to shortstop Aparicio to nail Terry Crowley trying to get back to second. The Brewers struck suddenly in the fourth inning against Lol- ich, one of two eight-game win- ners in the majors. Mike Fer- raro opened with a double, one of his three hits, and Ellie Rod- riguez slammed his first home run of the season into the upper left field stands at Tiger Stad- ium. "It was a high fastball on the first said Lolich. "He just looked like he was looking for it. "This would have been my 150th victory in the big leagues and I wanted to win it at home. I just pushed too hard. But I can slough off the six walks because they didn't hurt me." The contest was enlivened by a brief scrap in the ninth inning after Milwaukee's Billy Congli- aro bunted and Detroit reliever Phil Meeler ran Into him while making the tag on a close play at first base. Conigliaro was ejected. Mays' c.-iiiir-winninfi two-mil single broke Ihe Mets' two-game losing ntrcak and was Ihe 41- ycir-old star's third decisive hit since returning to New York two weeks ago. Chicago's Bill Hands was slaked lo a two-run lead in the sixth on Carmen Fanzone's dou- i hie. But he developed a blister on his pitching hand and the Mets tied it against Tom Phoe- bus on Duffy Dyer's homer in the eighth and Rusty Staub's double and Cleon Jones' single in the ninth.

The 68-year-old official is in charge of rescuing drivers from wrecked machines, drying out drunks, running out girls peddling sex, and creating order out of chaos as thousands of people gather for the U.S. Auto Club classic and the pre-race festivities.
