Hlfhwa? «1 Next to Dlae ft Aging Faces Arm Unwrinkled By MURRAY CHASS Associated Press Sports Writer As a youth Roy Face had a weak heart — but it got strong. As an aging baseball player, he has a strong arm — but it's not getting weak. The 38-year-old Face made his fourth apperance of the season Monday night and saved Pittsburgh's 4-3 victory over Cincinnati. It was the Pirates' fifth triumph in the first six games of the week-old season. Face's performance was similar to his first three and added strong evidence that he will be one of the most effective relief pitchers in the majors this season, his 13th with the Pirates. A poor 1964 season and a knee ailment last year gave indications that Face might be finished. But he is a veteran at coming back with a record dating to his youth. "In high school I developed a strep throat," Face recalled, "and they gave me too much sulfa drugs. It weakened my heart. "The doctor said absolutely no exercise. A few months later, though, I was playing football and not long after that I was accepted for Army service. "I also had rickets when I was five. The disease left my bones soft and bent, and I ran high fver. They sid I looked more dead than alive. I wasn't expected to live through the night, but I made it." Now Face is a nightmare for National League batters. In his first game on opening day last Tuesday, the right-han- der came on in the ninth inning with the contest tied 1-1, two out and three Atlanta Braves on base. He retired Frank Boiling on a fly ball, left for a pinch hitter and the Pirates eventually won in 13 innings. Last Saturday he relieved in the ninth inning, with the Pirates leading St. Louis 5-3, one on, one out and a count of two balls, no strikes on Julian Javier. He promptly induced Javier to hit into a game-ending double play. The next day he ended a rally after the Cardinals had scored five runs and still had two on with only one out. The Pirates Fundamentals (!) Still Important (?) BALTIMORE (AP) - Max Zaslofsky, a candidate for the Baltimore Bullets' coaching job, believes National Basketball Association stars can — and should — be taught fundamentals of the game. "The pros make a lot of mistakes simply because they don't know the fundamentals," said the former NBA scoring champion Monday itrior to his interview with Bullet officials about the coaching vacancy. * * * "Some people say the. pros know everything and shouldn't have to be taught," Zaslofsky said. "That's ridiculous. There are only about three clubs in the league who know how to box the opposition off the boards. If they did, the big men wuldn't get all those rebounds." Zaslofsky was armed with a personal scouting report on every NBA. player for his talk with Arnold Heft, one of the three Baltimore owners, and Bullets' General Manager Buddy Jeannette. * * * Zaslofsky, now 40, retired from the NBA in 1956 after a 10- year career. Since then, the former St. John's University star has coached an industrial league team for six years while serving as director of management training for a New York freight forwarding firm. Heft said the three owners probably would confer this weekend to narrow down the field of some 30 applicants for job. eventually won that one, too. Finally, against the Reds Monday night, he appeared in the ninth inning to hold a one- run lead. Cincinnati had runners at first and third with two out. Face again wasted little time. He struck out Art Shamsky, and the Pirates had another victory. His latest appearance was a straight without * start — a major league record 459th start being something he hasn't had since 1937. * * * A three-run rally in the sixth inning gave the Pirates the victory over the Reds, the last two scoring on Jose Pagan's pinch double. In the only other game, Loj Angeles defeated Houston 6-3 at Don Sutton scattered eight hits in eight innings and won his first major league game. Lou Johnson rapped two singles and a double, driving in two runs and scoring one. Rain washed out Atlanta at Philadelphia.
