Pirates half-game back Expos are spoilers, help cut Mets' lead THE ASSOCIATED PRESS New York Mets' precarious perch atop the National League East wobbled when they lost to Montreal Expos yet the team is exuding con- fidence reserved for clubs who have all but clinched a division pennant. "Hell, we're still in it. ain't we9." Mets' manager Yogi Berra said Wednesday night alter New York lost 8-5 to Montreal and had their East Division lead over Pittsburgh whittled to one-half game after the Pirates overwhelm- ed Philadelphia Phillies 13-2. Does the slim lead worry the Mets9 "I don't think'we've had any desperate feelings in a week." Mets' reliever Tug McGaw said. Bob Bailey's two-run homer in the seventh snapped a 5-5 tie after the Mets had tied it in the fifth on Jerry Grote's two- out run-scoring single. The Expos, tied with Chicago Cubs Three more reach 20-victory height ASSOCIATED PRESS American League pitchers winning 20 games in Kansas City, Milwaukee or Holland are a rare breed In fact, until Wednesday night, they were non-existent. Now. however. Kansas City Rovals, Milwaukee Brewers and. yes. even Holland, can boast a 20-game winner. Kansas City's Paul Split- torft. Milwaukee's Jim Colborn and Bert Blyleven, born in Holland now playing tor Minnesota Twins, all stag- ed their own pitch-in Wednes- day night. Long night "It's a pitcher's dream. I'm glad it happened to said Blyleven, the Twins' right- hander, born in Zeist, Holland, who one-hit Oakland Athletics and beat them 4-1 for victory No 20 "I wanted to do it here be- cause my folks were said Splittorff after he beat the hometown White Sox 6-2 for victory No 20. 'HAPPY'FOR TEAM "I really wanted this vic- said Jim Colborn after posting victory No. 20 by beat- ing New York Yankees 5-2. "But I'm not so much happy tor me but for the whole team Elsewhere Wednesday, Cleveland Indians edged Boston Red Sox 1-0 Califor- nia Angels nipped Texas Rangers 5-4 and Baltimore Orioles blanked Detroit Tigers 4-0 Today's abbreviated schedule has Kansas City at Chicago, Minnesota at Califor- nia. New York in Milwaukee and Detroit at Baltimore At the beginning of the sea- son, Colborn was not a likely prospect for his role as the baseball pioneer who would bring the Milwaukee Brewers, a four-year franchise, their first 20-game winner He started Milwaukee's first game and was beaten 10- 0. then banished to bullpen duty for a month. After gain- ing a 3-1 record in relief he gained a second chance as a starter. George Scott also gained a first for the Brewers. His two- run single in the seventh made him the first Brewer to ever reach 100 RBI. It's taken five years for the Kansas City Royals to get a 20-garne winner. John Mayberry's 100th RBI, matching last season's output, and McRae's two-run single in the first was enough to make a winner of Splittorff, 20-11. Hank Aaron sits in the Atlanta Braves' dugout biting his fingernails Tuesday night. Aaron again went hitless as time runs out in his bid to overtake Babe Ruth. Aaron is still two home runs short of magic 714 mark.

Richie Hebner, Gene Clines and Dal Maxvill combined to drive in 10 runs for the Pirates I just hope we can get hot this week." said Hebner, who drove in four runs with two hits, including a two-run homer. He had been hitless in 22 previous times at bat While the Pirates meet Montreal over the weekend, the Mets close out their season at Chicago with a four- game series. Ken McMullen drove home the winning run with a pinch- hit double in the ninth, capp- ing a three-run inning that catapulted the Dodgers to vic- tory. Hank Aaron drove in two Atlanta runs with a sacrifice fly and a single Aaron, who is still two homers short of tying Babe Ruth's all-tirne record 714. said his chances of eclipsing baseball's most outstanding individual record appeared slim.

Willie could be back NEW YORK (AP) -Don't be surprised if Willie Mays is in New York Mets' lineup if they make the National League baseball playoffs He said goodbye to his friends in a poignant Willie Mays Night at Shea Stadium Tuesday, but the 42-year-old all-time great said Wednesday he may be able to help if the Mets advance to the playoffs. "It just depends on my con- dition. You know me, I come into this game swinging, and I'd like to go out swinging." Yogi Berra manager of the Mets, said there still is a chance that Willie could be used in some capacity if the team qualifies for post season playoffs. "Right now, Willie is in too great pain to said "But if a situation arises where he ran be of help to us, we will use him." Mays suffered rib injuries in a collision with a rail while chasing a fly ball off the bat of Felipe Alou in Montreal Sept 9. He has not played since. "Man, the way I feel right now. I'm not sure I could sw- ing a Willie said. "But if I can be of any help in the playoffs or the World Series, I'll be ready."

Seek reverse on decision MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) A Vermont state senator has gone to the Federal Commu- nications Commission in an effort to reverse a decision by Boston Bruins to stop televis- ing their National Hockey League games over a Burlington station Sen. John Alden (Rep Wind- sor) said he sent a telegram asking FCC commissioner Dean Burch "to demand rein- statement of the games" over WVNY-TV on behalf of sports fans in Vermont. He said the action by the Bruins was due to the heavy- handed arbitrary action of Montreal Canadiens and the NHL "In light of the action by the Congress last said Al- den, referring to a law man- dating home-town television of National Football League games when they are sold out, "this action is even more out- rageous than normal." The decision by the Bruins to cut off their games from WVNY-TV was announced Monday by the station's manager, Dean Slack. In explaining the decision, the Canadiens executive vice- president, Irving Grundman, said each city in the NHL has an area "that is considered its own area "I can't send a TV signal into Boston or the Boston Grundman said Referring to WVNY-TV, Grundman said "it pene- trates into our area.'' Grundman said the NHL agreement had been explained to the Burlington television station's management. Burlington is 80 miles south of Montreal and therefore out- side the 50-mile radius usually applied from the limits of an NHL city However, WVNY- TV's signal is distributed in Montreal by means of cable TV, said Grundman. Oilers cut players EDMONTON (CP) Alberta Oilers of the World Hockey Association Wednes- day sent seven veterans to their Winston-Salem farm team in the New Southern Pro League. The most surprising cut was Bob Falkenberg, who lost out in the scramble for one of six defence jobs to newcomers Jim McCrimmon and Gary Cunningham Cunningham was obtained from Philadelphia and McCrimmon played for Medicine Hat Tigers in the Western Canada League last year. Other members of last year's team assigned to the minors were wingers Ron Anderson, Dennis Kassian, Brian Carhn, Bernie Blanchette and" Bob MacNeeley. Len Lunde, 37, attempting a comeback with the Oilers jfter two years out of pro lockey, was also told to work )ut with Winston-Salem ELRICH TIRE SPORT SCORES AMERICAN LEAGUE Eait W 95 85 83 77 74 Baltimore Boston Detroit New York Milwaukee Cleveland L Pet.
