Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 3, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Hard feelings between Phillies and Pirates Watt says he'll 'pitch to kill' By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Pittsburgh Pirates' 7-4 11-1 Labor Day sweep over Philadelphia left some bad feelings among a couple ol the Phillies. "We're going to get vowed Philadelphia second baseman Dave Cash, who was struck in the batting helmet by a pitch during the eighth inning of the nightcap "And if nobody else on this team will throw the ball, I will." Phils relief pitcher Eddie Watt made his feelings perfectly clear. "The next time I throw s baseball in this park, I will be trying to kill somebody, and that somebody will be a member of the Pittsburgh vowed Watt. Bruce said the pitch to Cash, a f-jtball, slipped from his hand because of a chronic blister on his middle finger. He said he talked briefly with Cash after the game and that Cash didn't indicate any anger "Dave knows better than Kison said. "I'm not going to take a shot at anybody with an 11-0 lead It's a ridiculous-subject to bring up. We're on the field to win games, not play games." That did not satisfy Cash. "He was trying to intimidate said Cash. "A pitcher who doesn't have better control than that doesn't belong in the big leagues Elsewhere in the National League.

Pittsburgh's victory increased its lead in the NL East to games over St. Louis, which was rained out While Pittsburgh's bats have been making the noise, the Pirates' pitching has been equally impor- tant in the team's climb to the top of the NL East. The Pirates have won 10 of their last 12 outings, and they've given up an average of just 2.5 runs a game. "We're like the Mets of last said slugger Willie Stargell, who had two homers, a double, two singles and drove in five runs in Monday's double- header "It's a good feeling, especially against a contending team." said Pittsburgh outfielder Richie Zisk, whose grand-slam homer highlighted the nightcap It was his third homer in five games. Doug Rader's sixth-inning homer, his 15th of the season, turned out to be the winning run for Houston and prevented the Reds from gaming ground on Los Angeles, which retained its lead in the NL West. After Rader's homer gave the Astros a 4-2 lead, the Reds nearly tied the game in the seventh. Pete Rose and Joe Morgan singled, and both runners moved up when Greg Gross misplayed Morgan's hit. Johnny Bench then doubled to left, scoring Rose, but Morgan was thrown out at the plate. Reds manager Sparky Anderson was ejected for arguing the play by home-plate umpire Jerry Dale. Two-run homers by Ed Goodson and Chris Speier in the sixth inning and a solo shot by pitcher Jim Barr in the seventh powered the Giants to victory. Barr, 11-8, scattered seven hits in addition to hitting his first career home run. The Dodgers led 3-0 behind Andy Messersmith, 16-6. with two out in the sixth when Gary Matthews got an infield single and Goodson followed with his fifth homer of the season. Dave Kmgman then singled and Speier hit his home run, No. 8, to put the Giants in front. Two home runs by Dave Johnson and one each by Darrell Evans, Ralph Garr and Dusty Baker led Atlanta to its sweep as Phil Niekro pitched a four- hitter in the opener and Ron Reed a three-hitter in the nightcap. San Diego suffered its seventh consecutive loss and 31st in 38 games Johnson and Evans homered in the opener, while Johnson, Garr and Baker each blasted home runs in the second game.
