Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 24, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD _ Thursday, Soplombor 24, Expos Stop Pittsburgh Mets Step Past Chicago By HAL BOCK Associated Press Siiorls U'rilcr The topsy-turvy Nations League East Division race is no clearer today after all three contenders saw action Wednes- day night. New York Mets, trailing Phil- adelphia Phillies 4-3 in the eighth, greeted reliever Dick Selma whom they had defeated in the ninth the previous night, with a two-rim homer and a victory. Pittsburgh Pirates were or the short end of a 3-1 score with Montreal Expos when Coco La- boy's throwing error put run- ners on second and third with one out. But reliever Mike Mar- shall allowed only one run in and the Expos won Chicago Cubs saw visions ol their 1963 collapse when they dropped identical 2-1 decisions in a doubleheader to St. Louis Cardinals. The result1; left the Pirates in first, two games up on New York and 214 ahead of Chicago. Elsewhere in the National League Wednesday, San Diego shut out Atlanta 2-0, Cincinnati belted Houston 6-2 and San Francisco went 10 innings to beat Los Angeles 14-10. The Mets were behind 4-1 against the Phillies but knocked out Chris Short with a two-run rally in the sixth. Ironically, Clendenon, whose 21st homer won the game two innings laler, crippled the early rally by slamming into a bases-loaded, none-out double play. Selma, whose explosive post- game tirade the night before re- sulted in his fine by NL Presi- dent Chub Feency and nearly caused a walkout by the four umpires, was more reserved tins time. "I threw a curve ball and it he said, claiming his clash v.ith the umpires not affected his performance. LOSES TO EXPOS Pittsburgh came close but could not quite catch Montreal. Carl Morton, who won his 17th, carried a 3-1 lead into the ninth with a pair of hits by Don Hahn keying two Expo rallies. Willie Stargell and Manny Sanguillen sandwiched ninth in- ning singles around a pop up and Laboy's throwing error scored one run and left the Pir- in position to win it on a hit. But Marshall bore down to fet Pagan on a fly ball and C.'ines on a line drive to end it. Gibson simply overpowered tire Cubs in the first game, pel milting just two hits. The bi right-hander struck out scvc and walked three en route to hi 23i-r'. victory of the season. In Lhc nightcap, Rcuss pcrmii led seven hits including Hire doubles by Billy Williams bu bore down in the clutch, espc A Fun Year For Manager By TOM SALADINO Associated Press Sports Write After five years of frustration manager Ralph Houk of th New York Yankees admits tha ths 1970 season has been a fun year for him. "The way the kids are play said Houk, "the season especially near the end now has been lots of fun." The Yankees not counted on to be contenders in the Air.eri can League East, after finishing fifth a year ago, clinched sec ond place Wednesday night dropping the Washington Sena tors 64 for their sixth straighl Iriumph. It gave Houk's youngsters an 80-67 mark, then: best record since the last New York pen nant-winning club of 1964 which finished 99-63. The Orioles leac .he Yanks by 12 games but New York was the only club to make any kind of a run at Baltimore earlier. The Yankees won it on rookie Jim Lytlle's two-run double and }BI triple. Another rookie, ?raiik Baker drove in Ihe final tew.York run. The victory earned the Yan- kees about per player for .heir second nlace finish. RED SOX OUT In other AL games, Boslon jst to Cleveland 5-2, and com- jined with the Yankees' victory, eliminated the Red Sox from he second-place battle, Minne- sota topped Oakland 7-4, Chi- cago blanked Kansas City 3-0, California at Milwaukee was called by rain and the Detroit at Jaltimore game was postponed iy the power shortage in the "5asb.
