TITLE BOUT RUHL vs SIKI Plus 4 More Big Boulj S2 S1.50 Sioeep Three From Mets On Weekend Pirates Wrap Up East Division Title 11.- THE ASSOCIATED I'KKSS sliorl weeks ago, the Na- ional League's East Division was a prize catcli nobody seemed willing, or able, to win. Today, Pittsburgh Pirates hold the prize in their hot hands and the twinkle in Danny Murtaugsi's Irish eyes is brighter than it has been in a decade of treasure-hunting. Tire swaggering Bucs scuttled New York Mets 2-1 Sunday to capture the elusive division crown their first title since Murlhaugh steered them to a World Series conquest of New York Yankees 10 years ago. "This had to be more excit- ing, because it was nip and tuck all the said the jubilant skipper, who returned to the Pirates' helm this season follow ing a two-year hiatus. He found himself embroiled in one of the most desperate races in Na- tional League history. "We had breathing room in he said. But the feeling's the WIN ON MATHEMATICS In completing a three-game weekend sweep, the Pirates mathematically eliminated both the Mets and Chicago Cubs, whose hopes expired despite a 5-3 victory over Philadelphia. The Pirates have a 414-game bulge over Chicago with three to play. Cincinnati's West Division champs, who will take on the Pirates in the pennant playoffs beginning Saturday at Pitts- burgh's new Three Rivers Stad- ium, beat Los Angeles Dodgers 8-5. Elsewhere, Montreal Expos nipped St. Louis Cardinals 1-0 in 11 innings, San Francisco Giants topped San Diego Padres 3-2 and Houston Astros bombed Atlanta Braves 10-7. The Pirates, hobbled by inju- ries to key players and without either a 20-gairie winner or 100- KBI man, earned their half-pen- nant by winning 10 of 14 games down the stretch including six of seven against the defend- ing champion Mets. After seizing the division lead last Aug. 2, they plodded along at a 19-20 clip for the next six weeks. But neither NOT York nor Chicago could win often enough to dislodge them. On Sept. 13, the Cubs rallied for two runs after centre fielder Matty Alou dropped a two-out fly ball in the ninth iming and stunned the Pirates 3-2. But the Mets, with a chance to grab the top spot, bowed to St. Louis 54 in 13 innings. That left Pitts- burgh clinging to a'half-game lead, with the third-place Cubs just one game off the pace. NOBODY WANTS IT Obviously the critics de- clared, it was a race nobody wanted to win. The Pirates have been dis- proving that theory ever since. Pittsburgh's much-maligned pitching staff allowed only 33 runs in t h e decisive 14-game stretch run. They continued to hit hi the pinches. Sunday's clincher was their fifth one-run decision in the seven games against New York and third in as many days. "Everybody says don't have any said Dock Ellis, the winner Sunday with late help from relief ace Dave Giusti. "But that's just not true. How can anybody knock our pitching Baltimore Orioles must have held a baseball record book in one hand and a champagne glass in the other to justify the celebration they had Sunday, but manager Earl Weaver spouted the background like a computer hit by a wild pilch.
