Carlton then weighed in with a single to score one run. The runners advanced on an in field out and Julian Javier rapped a hit off loser A1 Jackson to ap parently drive in both runners. But the Mets appealed that Carlton had missed third base and umpire Doug Harvey upheld the appeal. That took away one run from the Cardinals and an RBI from Javier. ★ ★ ★ WASHINGTON (A>)_Pinch hit ter Jerry Adair’s single and Carl Yastrzemski’s sacrifice fly drove in two runs in the eighth inning and gave the Boston Red Sox a 3-1 victory over the Washington Senators Wednesday night.
