Esposito, who holds the indi- vidual scoring record of 126 points for a season, a mark he set in 1968-69, leads the current individual scoring race with 34 points on 14 goals and 20 as- sists.

The run came in the sixth to- ning when Doug Hill of Victoria singled home Roy Rowley of Moose Jaw, Sask. Rowley had reached second when the An- tiites centre fielder let his fly ball drop.

The Blues have managed to stay right behind tie Hawks be- cause of strong defensive play, St. Louis has the second-low- est goal output of the 14 NHL teams, bat the Blues' 32 goals against in 18 games is the best defensive record in the league.
