Greatest Game, Podres Declares HOUSTON (AP) — "This was the greatest game I ever pitched." ' - That was Johnny Podres' description Sunday night after losing 12 pounds while pitching no-nil ball inlo the ninth inning against the Houston Colts. He came within three ouls of a no-hitler, then sat on the bench as the Dodgers shut out the Colts 4-0 on one hit. That was by Johnny Temple on Podres' second pitch in the ninth. "My first pitch," Podres said, "was my fast ball, the strike. He was crowding the plate so I came next with a curve inside. "I wanted him to pull it down to Maury (Wills). But he's smart and he went wilh it lo the opposite field jusl like he was trying to do. I don't think Marv (Breeding) missed it by more > than five inches." But Pocires was philosophical, "You know, it's a game of inches — Breeding got Staub's ground ball on the grass thai could have been a hit. "I lold him before the game that Stmib likes lo pull so he was shading over that way. And the drive (Ron) Fairly caught off (John) Bateman —Barlick (the ump) told Fairly he would have called the ball fair if it had hil his glove and he hadn't held onto it." Podres talked about another 'ew inches that helped—his two- RBI double to left in the seventh. "I didn't hil the ball good," he said. "And I was surprised to sec it fall. I think the kid (Jim Wynn) misplayed it to let it get over his head." Podres then scored the fourth run on Wills' single. "Thai gave me some breathing room," he said. "I took oxygen in the dugout afler running the bases and the next inning, I got out of it wilh about four pitches, so I recovered." Podres fell the 12 pounds he lost during the torturous, muggy evening, He hit the next batter, Bob Aspromonle, on the arm. In the Majors (By the Associated Pffsi) American League W. L. Pet, C..B.

The suit was filed against the Curtis Publishing Co., publishers of the Post, because of en article March 23 which said Butts and Alabama Coach Paul (Bear) Bryant conspired to rig last year's game between their schools. Alabama, ranked No. 1 nationally at the end of the 1961 season, won the 1962 season-opener from Georgia 35-0. The Post article said Alabama was a 14 to 17 point favorite in the belting lines. Butts and Bryant, wlro also filed a $10 million libel suit against the Post, denied all the charges. Butts quit coaching at Georgia following the I960 season, but remained as athletic director until his resignation one month before publication of the article. He said ie was quitting for business and personal reasons. Butts claims the article ruined nLs coaching career—22 years at Georgia. He also contends that the Post falsely charged him with "rigging and fixing the Alabama- Georgia football game with Coach Bryant as a gambling device in order lo restore his financial resources." The Post denies the assertions. The Post said the article was based on a telephone conversation overheard by an Atlanta businessman, George P. Burnett. He said he was accidentally cut inlo a long distance call between Suite and Bryant about a week prior to the Sept. 22 game. Burnelt said he heard Bulls give secret information on Ihe Georgia team to Ihe Alabama coach. Georgia Atty. Gen. Eugene Cook investigated the Post charges and concluded that Butts had given Bryanl vital information on the Georgia football team. However, he said he could find no evidence that either Bulls or Bryant was involved in gambling. Alabama Ally. Gen. Richmond Flowers said an investigation in that state had uncovered no evidence of wrong-doing. He called Georgia's probe a "political kettle of fish."

Hinsdale Entries OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The Boston Patriols launched their pre-seoson exhibition schedule on an unhappy note becuase their offense was out of tune. Oakland's Raiders, marking the debut of new head coach Al Davis, upjet the Patriots 2-1-17 in th,e American Football League exhibition Sunday. Boston mustered only three first downs and 48 yards lolal offense in Ihe first half, reaching Oakland territory once only because of a penalty. Meanwhile, the Haiders look a 7-0' lead when Cotton Davidson threw a 26-yard scoring pass lo Art Powell who had broken behind rookie Boston secondary defender Jimmy Field from Louisiana Stale. The Patriots rallied three limes to tie the score. With the count 17-all midway through the final quarter, defensive star linebacker Arch Malsos intercepted a Babe Parilli pass and returned it 27 yards to the Boston 17. A pair of Davidson to Powell aerials set up the winning score, a one-yard dive by Charlie Rieves. Cliff Pennington's 46-yard field goal and Davidson's one - yard plunge accounted for the winners' other scores. Boston tallied on a 20-yard field goal by Giro Capelletti, an eye opening 60-yard Parilli to Cappel- lelti aerial maneuver and a 23 yard pass from Tommy Yewcic to rookie end Art Graham. Bobby Walslon, second highest scorer in NP'L history and lured out of retirement after leaving the Philadelphia Eagles, handled the point-after kicking chores for Boston.
