Yanks Injured But Relentless By JERRY LISKA Associated Press Sports Writer CINCINNATI, Ohio (AP) - The wounded but relentless New York Yankees were 3 to 2 favorites to close out the World Series today with a decisive fourth victory over the desperate Cincinnati Reds, whose last-ditch hope was their lone series winner, strapping Joey Jay, Jay's pitching opponent in this World Series contest, the last in rozy Crosley Field, is the same rival who bowed to the 225-pound' Cincinnati right-hander in New - York last Thursday, 25-year-old Ralph Terry. The Reds won that * * * Yanks Confident When Ford's In one, 6-2, behind Jay's four-hit pitching. The weather again was expected to be as perfect as Sunday when New York's Whitey Ford surpassed Babe Ruth's 43-year- old series record for consecutive scoreless pitching innings and a bevy of other Yankees got into the act in a monotonous 7-0 shutout of the Reds. Ford now has pitched 32 runless innings, topping Ruth's old mark of 29 2-3. If Jay should duplicate his Yankee Stadium victory the series would return to New York for a sixth game Wednesday and possibly a seventh game Thursday. In perhaps an ironical coincidence, the series ended for Mickey Mantle and may have been decided against the Reds in the fourth inning Sunday when the ailing Yankee star stroked screaming hit to deep left center. That set up the first Yankee run and the only one they really needed to scuttle Cincy starter Jim O'Toole. Mantle had to leave the game after his hit, a certain two-bagger under normal conditions. It sent home run king Roger Maris, who had walked, to third, from where he scored on a double play. Mantle now is out of the series, no mater if it goes the seven- game limit. The ugly wound on his hip where an abscess was removed 10 days ago has drastically hobbled the fleet slugger. The wound was bleeding badly when Mantle was removed for » pinch-runner following his hit. Besides Mantle, the Yankee sick bay treated Ford, whose right big toe was badly bruised by a foul as he batted in the sixth inning, and the peerless Yogi Bera, who was gashed above his right eye by his sunglasses when he made a fruitless try for a diving catch, also in the sixth inning. Ford allo.wed four hits in his six innings and Coates yielded only one in the three innings he worked after an emergency call from the bull pen. Ford's throbbing toe caused him to quit following Elio Chacon's inning-opening single in the sixth. The financial phase of the tourney for the players ended Sunday, with a total player pool of $645928.28. Of that amount, 70 per cent or $452,149.80 will be divided among the Yanks and Reds, with the remainder going to the sec' ond, third and fourth place teams in each league. The winning pool is $271,289.88 about $8,000 per player for the series champion and approximately $5,200 for each player on the losing club, based on an unofficial allotment of 34 shares per team.

You could sec what the Reds thought of Whitey Ford in the first inning. They knew he'd be hard to score on when they tried to bunt. After Whtey struck out (Elio) Chacon with four pitches, Eddie Kasko and Vada Pinson both tried lo bunt sinking curve balls. Whitey had so much stuff they couldn't drop one. You always feel good when they try to bunt on Ford. It's right down his alley. Not only is he one of the greatest competitors in the game, but he is also a pretty good fielder. And beating the Christy Mathewson (28 1-3 straight scoreless innings) and Babe Ruth (29 2-3) straight scoreless innings record couldn't happen to a nicer guy. That's why we made him our player representative.

CINCINNATI (AP)-Babe Ruth >robably would be glad to know fun-loving fellow like Whitey 'ord broke his cherished World Series pitching record. Off the 'ield they would have had much n common. When the crowd of newsmen surged into the New York Yankee dressing room after Sunday's 7-0 Yankee victry in which Ford set a record of 32 consecutive score- iess innings they found Whitey ready with a quip. "Anybody here from California lo make an offer?", he asked with a grin. "Say $500 for this ball." Ford referred, of course, to the $5,000 a California restaurant owner offered to the man who caught Roger Maris' 61th home run at Yankee Stadium. Ford turned his ankle slightly while pitching and then hit himself with his own foul ball while batting in the sixth' inning. He left the game after Elio Chacon singled to open the Cincinati sixth and Jim Coates finished the 7-0 shutout. Ruth's old scoreles streak was 29 2/3 innings compiled in 1916 and 1918. Ford's first two shutouts came against Pittsburgh last year. He blanked the Reds in the opener last Wednesday and got the last five Sunday. two shutouts Pittsburgh. But in the fourth it looked like trouble when Kasko singled with none out. We were leading only 1-0. When Pinson came up. I was playing a bit deep and I just caught his short fly at my knees after a long run. That's one fly I wanted. Then Whitey showed his best stuff to Frank Robinson but with two strikes he hit him on the foot. Two men on, one out. Then Whitey pitched out of the jam by getting dangerous Wally Post to hit a double play ball to Tony Kubek. Outside of Whitey, everybodj on the Yankees seems to have a hand in this series. Bobby Richardson picked up where he left off against Pittsburgh last year and now has hit safely in his last six World Series games. In this series he is 8 for 17 with five of them off Jim O'Toole, a fine pitcher. Mickey Mantle is one who's really hurtin'. Ya gotta give Mick all the credit for playing in his condition. That abscess on his hip looks like a tulip. Tonight we take the train back to New York and I hope we can go back as world champions. * * •* Maris Anxious To Go Home CINCINNATI (AP) - Roger Maris simply can't wait for the World Series to end. "When this thing is over," he said today, "I'm going to run, not walk, to the nearest airport, and shout 'KG, Mo, here I come'.' "KC, Mo," stands for Kansas They Play Them Close In AFL By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS American Football League coaches know by now what it means to walk the tight rope — they do it every Sunday. Since Oakland settled down and started playing football the AFL games have been as close as a ?lued toupee. The widest margin has been 14 points. San Diego, the only unbeaten team left in the league, has been escaping the real close ones but the margin wasn't exactly comfortable last week as the Chargers beat Boston 38-27 to stay firmly on top of the Western Division. Jack Kemp had to give one ol his patented performances in or der for the Chargers to whip the tenacious Patriots. Kemp passed for three touchdowns, which was the difference in the ball game. The saddest note of the weekend was Houston's third straighl defeat.

Weidner shot down both Kansas and Missouri in his sophomore year of 1959, and at Boulder, Colo, iaturday he 'threw three touchdown passes, plus two place-kick conversions by Jerry Hillebrand, wiped out a 19-0 Kansas lead and enabled Colorado to win 20-19. Missouri, which played a 14-14 tie with California last Saturday, must meet the Buffaloes in Boulder Nov. 4. Both Missouri and Kansas had an easy time with Colorado last season. The Iowa State Cyclones knocked off the Oklahoma Sooners 21-15, at Norman, Okla., and will challenge none-too-lucky Kansas at Lawrence Saturday. This game will be a big one for both teams in the championship race. An Iowa State victory would establish the Cyclones as co-favor- iles with Colorado for the league title at this point. Kansas would get very much in the titular running by thumping the Cyclones. In the only other Big Eight game Saturday, Missouri opens defense of its title in a game with Oklahoma State in Stillwater. OSU won Saturday, 26-0 over Tulsa. Other members have outside games. Colorado plays Miami at Miami, Okla., Friday night.

"It's too bad the series didn't end in four games. "I miss the children," explained the 27-year-old New York slugger, a father of four children, the oldest four-year-old Susan. "I want to get away from people," said the man who hammered a record number of 61 home runs during the season and one more in the World Series. "I want to be alone, just with my family. I want to become acquainted with my kids again. I haven't seen them since the first week of August." Actually, Maris will be able to spend only one week in the seclu sion of his home and family. He has agreed to participate in a hitting exhibition, along with Jim Gentile of Baltimore and Harmon Killebrew of Minnesota, on Oct. 15-18 in several cities in North Carolina. "After that, I'm coming back home and slay there all winter, he promised, "except for two or three functions that I have committed myself to attend. I feel good just thinking about it."
