A crowd of 2.400 gave the home-town Richmond team a solid boost while Peter- borough got no fan support at all. Peterborough coach Ben Floyd had earlier Said the home-town advantage in this series is worth at least five goals a game. The visitors appeared listless, and Eastern reporters called it the "worst game of the season" for Peterborough who won 26 of 28 league games. In the third period. Peter- borough fell victim to several unnecessary penalties through frustration. The final five goals of the game by Rich- mond came while Peter- borough was a man short. The Roadrunners led 2-0 at the end of the first period and stretched that advantage to a 7-2 after 40 minutes. Roadrunners scored the running first two goals in the third period. Peterborough came back with one which was matched by Richmond and then the eastern team scored two (juick markers to make a game of it. However three penalties in 61 seconds plus two more three minutes later put Peterborough out of the game as the Richmond power play went to work. Richmond goalie John Lewis, a rookie, was prac- tically unbeatable. The Peter- borough team didn't run much but they shot well and Lewis came through with big saves. Peterborough did not score a goal at even strength until of the third period. Their first three goals came on the power play. (Jerry Finder scored four goals for Richmond, two of them while his team was shorthanded. Bob Tasker had three goals while Ray Durante. Doug May and Ed Ashcroft scored two each.

MAY CLEARS BASES Dave May hit a grand slam homer off Mel Stottlemyrt, capping a seven-run rally for the Brewers. Terrell's two-run error gave Jim Kaat the lead he needed to beat the Twins, his third win in a row since be- ing traded by Minnesota to the White Sox last, month.

Dodgers end streak East race a toss-up Cards holding lead By THE CANADIAN PRESS Introducing a new dance step for those whacky, wonderful folks in baseball's National League East, called the Title Tap-Out. You take one step forward and then two backwards. That kind of treadmill pace has created a five-team scramble for the division title with St. Louis Cardinals holding the lead only because they're the only team in this silly division able to play .500 baseball. Barely .500. but in this division, that's good enough. The Cardinals dropped their third straight game Sunday, bowing to Chicago Cubs 5-4. But they remained on top of the division because Pitt- sburgh Pirates managed to blow a six run lead and lose to Philadelphia Phillies 8-7. Meanwhile, the suddenly-hot New York Mets tightened things up even more, beating Montreal Expos 3-0. Elsewhere in the league Sunday. Houston Astros edged San Francisco Giants 5-4, Los Angeles Dodgers ended their nine game losing streak, beating San Diego Padres 5-3. and Cincinnati swept a doubleheader with Atlanta Braves, taking the first game 14-6 and winning the second 7- 0. On Saturday, San Diego de- feated Los Angeles 9-6, Chicago dropped St. Louis 3-1, Houston out-slugged San Francisco 9-7. Atlanta shaded Cincinnati 3-2 and Pittsburgh beat Philadelphia 5-3. and Montreal beat New York 3-1. As a result of the Title Tap- Out, the Cards are still first despite a three-game losing streak and a mediocre record of 72-71. Pittsburgh is second, one game out. Montreal is third, 2'2 behind while Chicago and New York are tied for fourth, a mere three games behind. "It's a great race for the fans, the players and the writers." said Mets" manager Yogi Berra. "But I'll tell you this is hell on the managers. We're getting into the ulcers stretch. "This race can't get much observed Cardinal manager Red Schoendienst. MONDAY HITS TWO Rick Monday ripped a pair of home runs and Billy Williams tagged his 19th of the season, snapping an eighth- inning tie and lifting the Chicago Cubs to a 5-4 victory over St. Louis. Pittsburgh blew an early 7-1 lead and bowed to Philadelphia 8-7 on Willie Montanez' ninth-inning home run. Montreal errors by second baseman Ron Hunt and short- stop Tirn Foli gave the Mets a pair of unearned runs in the RETAINS CROWN BOGOTA.

Washington scored their touchdowns in the first half and added a field goal in the fourth quarter to make the difference against Chicago. With remaining in the first half, quarterback Bill Kilmer threw a 25-yard touchdown pass to Roy Jefferson on a play set up by a 20-yard run by Duane Thomas. Jefferson was all alone in the end zone to take Kilmer's toss. PUT GAME OUT OF REACH The Redskins closed the door on Chicago in the second quarter when rookie Mike Hancock blocked a punt on the Bears' 29 and after some dif- ficulty picking up the ball, Bob Brunet ran it 15 yards for the touchdown. Mike Bragg, subbing for in- jured place kicker Curt Knight, booted a 17-yard field goal in the fourth period. The Bears' only score came on a 45-yard field goal by Mirro Roder with remaining in the game. At Denver, hometown quar- terback Charley Johnson had one each for the Reds in the twin bill. Joe Morgan ended an 0-for- 17 slump with a three-run homer for the Dodgers, stopp- ing their losing streak at nine games.
