Podres warms up, gives Braves the treatment 2-1 LOS ANGELES (UPI) - mien Johnny Podres is the announced starting pitcher for the Dodgers in the future, don't be surprised if j-ou don't see him warming up before the ball game. Look towards the bullpen. The southpaw in his 10th season with the Dodgers—blasted in his last two starts in the first inning—decided to warm up on the pitcher's mound available in the bullpen Monday night and cam.e on to pitch Los Angeles to a 2-1 victory over the Milwaukee Braves. Podres left St. Louis disgustedly June 23 after the Cardinals knocked him out of the game with only one out in the first inning. He returned to Los Angeles to receive some cortisone shots for an ailing left elbow while the team moved on to Cincinnati. Podres showed no evidence of arm trouble Monday night night striking out 12 batters (disheartened Denis Menke went down swinging four times) and allowed only five hits—never more than one in an inning. Podres didn't get going last year until July and the pattern may be repeated this season. The hurler now has his record at 5-6. The efforts of Podres might have been for naught except for Frank Howard. i\Iaury Wills and Wally Moon. Rookie righthander Bob Sadowski, brother of the Los Angeles Angels' Ed Sado%v- ski, hurled two-hit ball until the ninth inning and retired 14 men in a row until the Dodgers' winning rally started. Howard staked Podres to a 1-0 lead with a line drive home run into the right centerfield stands, but the Braves' Gene Oliver slammed a round-tripper in the fourth to tie the game. With one out in the ninth. Wills singled to center and stole second, his 19th theft of the year. Sadowski was ordered to give Jim Gilliam an intentional walk. Wally .Moon batted for Willie Davis, who had struck out in his three previous appearances against Sadowski, and drove the ball to the wall in right centerfield to plate Wills with the winning run. Moon was credited — after much deliberation about the rule —with a double although the runner ahead of him, Gilliam, failed to touch third base. Under the rules before this year. Moon would have gotten credit for only a single. But the rules now allow the hitter-runner to receive what the official scorer judges he would have made normally, regardless of what a preceding and non-scor ing runner does. After hitting a home run his first time at bat, Howard drove a broken bat fly ball deep to the left field comer that came within 10-15 feet of being a home run. "Frank wasn't taking such an e.x aggerated stride when swinging at the ball," said manager Walt Alston, "we've been trying to get Frank to cut down on his stride when he swings." The victory over the Braves, combined with the Cardinals' 4-3 loss to Houston Friday night, put the Dodgers hi game behind league-leading St.'Louis, who in vade Dodger Stadium tonight for the start of a three-game series. Don Drysdale — like Podres, a pitcher who usually picks up in the month of July — will face the heavy-hitting Cards. The last four seasons Drjsdale has compiled a 22-1 record in July games. Lefty Curt Simmons is the prob able St. Louis starter. The ex- Philadelphia Phillie is 7-3 this year, one of the defeats at the hands of the Dodgers. Stan Williams brillianf in relief role for Yanks By United Press International Stan Williams has a new pitch, and it's no coincidence that the New York Yankees' American League rivals have that sinking feeling. The erstwhile fireballer, acquired in a winter trade with the Los Angeles Dodgers, turned in 4 2-3 innings of brilliant one-hit relief pitching Monday night and then revealed that he has added a pitch and revamped his entire pitching style. "I decided I needed a new pitch," said AVilliams, whose 5.40 earned run average before Mon day night's game had qualified him as the Yankees' biggest disappointment of the season. "And so I developed a sinker by modi fying my motion- Instead of throwing full overhand, I now come around three-quarter and the ball naturally comes in low and sinks." The 6-foot, 4-inch, 230-pound right-hander's near-perfect relief job gave the Yankees a 7-5 victory over the Boston Red Sox and enabled them to open up a 2^-game lead in the AL. It means that the Yankees are edg- Ocean fishi Following is the latest 24 hour ocean fishing report: SAN DIEGO: Point Loma, H&M, Fidierman's Landing — Eleven boats, 261 anglers: 133 yellowtail. 33 albacore, 142 bonilo, 379 bottom fish.

Like Drysdale's Both Williams and Yankee manager Ralph Houk compared the big pitcher's new delivery v.ith Don Drysdale's. Drysdale throws full overhand but his fast ball comes in low and sinks. Wil hams claims he is getting the same result with a slightly modi' fied motion. Williams made it a gala night for himself when he also delivered a 400-foot, fifth-inning triple that drove in the tie-breaking run and then scored the insurance run on Tony Kubek's third single of the game. Kubek and Clete Boyer had three hits each, Phil Linz had four and Joe Pepitone had two to give the Yankee infield a total of 12 hits in the Yankees' 17-hit attack. Kubek and Boyer each made a brilliant play in the field and right-fielder Roger Maris made an eye-popping catch on Gary Geiger in the seventh inning as the world champions tJirew up a magnificent defense behind starter Jim Bouton and Williams. The victory squared Williams' season record at 3-3 and, accord ing to Houk, was "a terrific life for him." In addition to his trou bles with AL opposition, Williams had turned in an utterly miserable performance in the Yankees' "prestige" exhibition game with with the New York Mets June 20. Field of 13 runs in filly championship INGLEWOOD (UPI)-A field of 13, led by the favored entry of Leisurely Kin and Sari's Song, goes postward today in the $25,000 added Lassie Stakes that decides the 2-year-old filly championship at HoUj^vood Park. The entry of J. K. Houssels drew the two inside post positions to enhance their opportunity. Leisurely Kin has lost once this season at Hollyn-ood and includes among her victories the Cinderella Stakes. Included in the talent-laden field are Loukahl, Star Boarder, Ali Imp, Duchess Khaled, Cedar Hemp, Pretty Bubbles, Sweet And Fleet, My Bright Baby, Poliness and the entry of Jloolah Bird and TBEK HERO —Admiring members of the New Breed of , fans who worship the Mets pay homage to Tim Harkness at the Polo Grounds after the New York first .baseman had belted out a grand f^'^'^rn homer to give his team an 8-6 victory over the Chicago Cubs in the 14th inning. Woodeshick stars as Colts edge Cards in 11 By United Press Inttrnational It's been a long, rocky road from Wilkes-Barre, Pa., for Hal Woodeshick, but that 1.36 earned run average he's sporting is a cindi to make him the Houston Colts' representative on the National League AU-Star team. It also gives him good reason to claim he's the best relief pitcher in the senior circuit. A 6-foot, 3-inch, 200-pound left­ hander who failed in previous major league trials with Cleve land, Detroit and Washington. Woodeshick has been shooting bullets in relief all season. He's pitched in 27 games and allowed only 10 earned runs in 66 innings. Woodeshick raised his season record to 8-3 Monday night when he yielded one run in three in nings to gain credit for the Colts' 4-3, 11-inning win over the St. Louis Cardinals. It was the Colts' second straight victory over the Redbirds and sh'ced their NL lead to a half-game. In Extra Innings What makes Woodeshick's record even more distinctive is the fact the Colts don't score many runs and he's had to battle for his wins in extra innings. The Colts have won six of their last seven extra-inning games and Woodeshick has been the winning pitcher in every one of them. Bill White doubled horn the tying run against Woodeshick in the ninth Monday night but then Hal stopped the Cardinals cold and Colts finally won out in the 11th on Rusty Staub's two-out single which scored Ernie Fazio. Fazio led off the 11th with a bunt single and a moved to second on Johnny Temjde's sacrifice. The Dodgers moved to within a half-game of the Cardinals when they beat the Milwaukee Braves, 2-1, the Cincinnati Reds defeated the San Francisco Giants, 4-3, and the Philadelphia PhilL'es scored an 8-1 victory after losing to the Pittsburgh Pirates, 2-1, in other NL action. In the American League, the New York Yankees widened their first-place lead to 2^4 games with 7-5 decision over the Boston Red Sox and the Kansas City Athletics topped the Baltimore Orioles, 6-4. Scores Winning Run Maury Wills singled, stole second for his 19th theft of the season and scored the winning run for the Dodgers on pinchhitter Wally Moon's double. Johnny Podres pitched a five-hitter and struck out 12 to register his fifth win of the season. Frank Howard homered for the Dodgws and Gene Oliver connected for the Braves. Home runs by Tommy Harper and Ken Walters paved the way for Cincinnati's Jim Maloney to score his 12th victory against three defeats. Ed Bailey homered for the Giants, but Billy O'Dell suffered his fourth loss compared with 10 wins. Don Cardwell pitched a four- hitter and struck out eight to win his fourth game for the Pirates when Bill Virdon singled home Ron Brand with two out in the ninth inning. The Phillies rebounded behind the four-hit pitching of Cal McLish (7-4) and an li-hit attack paced by Johnny Callison and Tony Gonzalez, who stroked three hits apiece, to take the nightcap. Houk names 17 more to all-star team BOSTON (UPI) - New York manager Ralph Houk today named 17 additional American League All-Stars, four of them Yankees, to the squad he will direct against the National Leaguers at Cleveland next Tuesday. In an announcement made here by league president Joe Cronin, Houk closely followed the form when he named a seven-man pitching staff, two reserve catchers, and four replacements for both the infield and the outfield. Houk departed from the balloting by the players only once— when he chose Kansas City's Norm Siebern as reserve to his own Joe Pepitone at first base. Boston's Dick Stuart had finished second to Pepitone and was the only second choice not selected for the squad. Under the restrictive rules, however, Houk was required to name at least one player from each club and Siebern was the lone Kansas City player. Bunning Heads Pitchers Pitchers named by Houk for the 30fh All-Star squad were head ed by Detroit's Jim Bunning and included Steve Barber of Baltimore, Jim Bouton of New York, Jim Grant of Cleveland, Ken McBride of Los Angeles, Juan Pizarro of Chicago, and relief ace Dick Radatz of Boston. Houk chose Yankee Elston Howard and Washington's Don Leppert as reserve catchers to Earl Battey and picked Baltimore's Luis Aparicio, Yankee Bobby Richardson, Baltimore's Brooks Robinson and Siebern as infield replacements. His starting infield, announced last weekend, has Pepitone at first, Nellie Fox of Chicago at second, Frank Malzone of Boston at third, and Zoilo Vcrsalles of Minnesota at short. Outfield spares picked by Houk included Jlinnesota's Bob Allison and Harmon Killebrew, Tom Tresh of the Yankees, and Boston's Carl Yastrzemski. Start In OuHleld Starting outfielders will be Leon Wagner of Los Angeles, Detroit's Al Kaline, and Albie Pearson of Los Angeles, substituting for the injured Mickey Mantle, who was the first choice in the player poll. Mantle was missing for the first time in 12 games. In addition to Stuart, there were several other players missing from the list who had expected to be on it. The foremost was Boston pitchmg leader Bill MoU' bouquette, with an 11-5 record The veteran ^Vhitey Ford, a sev en-time All-Star selection, with current 12 -3 record, also was not on the list.

Foytack to start on mound against Orioles BALTIMORE (UPI) — Paul Foytack, who turned into a real "tiger" in his first start as a Los Angeles Angel, gets another starting assignment tonight when the West Coast nine takes on Baltimore in a battle for sixth place. The Angels and Orioles are tied for sixth, only a half game out of fifth. Matched with Foytack, 1-0 with Los Angeles, was Steve Barber, the Baltimore ace with a 12-5 mark. Shortly after being traded by the Detroit Tigers, Foytack won his first start by dumping Baltimore, 3-1, at Los Angeles. Barber hasn't faced Los Angeles this year. The Angels, two games above the .000 mark, realize the importance of the E.astem swing. A ninth-inning Tiger homer deprived them of gaining ground on the pack Sunday at Detroit, as the Yankees continued to draw away in first place. Leon Wagner has been on a personal tear, regardless of how the club is faring. He has a .351 batting average, best in either league, also is tops in runs bat- fed in with 57 in the American League and is tied at 19 with Bob Allison of Minnesota for the home run lead. Wagner thus has a definite shot at the coveted triple crown, and left no doubt he regards this as important. The former National League journeyman who reached stardom with the Angds said: "Winning those trophies may not seem too iraportant to some players, but they mean a lot when it comes time to talk about a new contract" SIGN FOUR BACKS oAN FRANCISCO (UPI) - The San Francisco Forty Niners announced Monday that defensive halfbacks Eddie Dove, Jerry Mertens, Dale Messer and Elbert Kimbrough have signed contracts for the 1963 National Football League seaswi. II.S. wrestlers off to disastrous start HAELSINBORG, Sweden (UPI) —The United States today faced the grim task of climbing off the mat in the world Greco-Roman wrestling championships after getting off to a disastrous start in Monday's opening matches. Three of America's 1963 Pan- American titleholders lost their first-round bouts. Flyweight Andy Fitch of New York, welterweight Dennis Fitzgerald, a halfback on the University of Michigan football team, and light heavyweight Jim Ferguson of San Francisco were out-pomted by European opponents. Lightweight Ben Northrup managed a draw with H. Singel of Switzerland in his opening match, and was held to another draw by Denmark's Svend Skr>'dslrup in the second round. Featherweight Bobby Douglas of West Liberty State provided the Yanks with their first glimpse of victory when he decisioned Michele Thoma of Italy, but this success was only momentary as Douglas later lost a second-round match to Russia's Gennady Sapu- nov. Douglas suffered a rib injury against the Russian and was forced to drop out of the meet. Even more disheartening to America's hopes was the loss of bantamweight Dave Auble of Ithaca, N.Y. fie was eliminated before the meet even started when he failed to make the 125- pound limit at the morning weigh-in. NEW YORK — (NEA) — John ny Pesky barged into Yankee Stadium with the Red Sox for his first appearance in the Bronx as manager. Someone suggested to Pesky that this might be the year to beat the Yankees what with their string of injuries, starting with Jlickey Mantle, and for them an unusually large number of disappointments. "Ralph Houk has his problems," said a baseball writer as Pesky climbed into his uniform in the visitors' clubhouse. "I'd like to have Ralph's problems," countered Pesky, who has the Boston club which tied for seventh last season smack-dab in contention. "The Yankees' fine personnel can take up a lot of slack. "And I'll tell you another thing — if the Yankees have problems Houk will know how to solve them." Pesky has come in close contact with a number of famous managers since he was the clul)- house boy for the Portland club of the Pacific Coast League. He recalls Spencer Abbott, a renowned nMior league manager, from those early days. In the American League he played under Joe Cronin, Joe McCarthy, Steve O'Neill, Lou Boudreau, Red Rolfe, Fred Hutchinson and Bucky Harris. JOHNNY PESKY "My kind of managef But he models himself after Houk, now his foremost rival. "Houk started me on this side of the fence." recalls Pesky, "and while I'll try to knock his head off on the field, Ralph's my kind of a guy and manager. "I don't mind telling you that I try to do everything just like him. "When I finished up as a player with Washington in 1954, 1 wanted to stay in baseball in some capac- Jesse Gonder may wind up with Stengel again CHICAGO (UPD-Jesse Gender the good-hit, no-field catcher who broke into the majors tmder Cas ey Stengel three years ago, may wind up playing for him again. When Stengel's New York Mets peddled infielder Charley Neil and catcher Sammy Taylor to Cincinnati in a waiver deal Monday, the Reds promised to ship ole Case a player to be determined at a later date. That date could be today or Wednesday, and the best guess is that the player will be Gonder. The Reds partially confirmed this Monday night when they asked waivers on Gonder, who has appeared in only 31 games with Cincinnati this season but is hitting a healthy .313. The Reds apparently can spare Gonder because the acquisition of Taylor gave them four catchers. And the Mets, who have an anemic team battmg average of .209, certainly can use (Jonder. The 27-year-old, lefty-hitfmg catcher cracked the majors with the New York Yankees in 1960— the same year Stengel was canned as the manager of the Bronx Bombers. He appeared in only seven games that season but earned Casey's respect and admiration. Following the 1961 season, the Yankees traded Gonder to Cincinnati for pitcher JIarshail Bridges. The Reds-Mets transaction set off a chain reaction whereby Cincinnati sold second baseman Don Blasingame to the Washington Senators, who made room for him on their roster by selling pitcher Jim Coates to San Diego of the Pacific Coast League. Blasingame hit .281 in 141 games for the Reds last season but lost his job this year to rookie Pete Rose. He batted only .161 in 18 appearances with Cincinnati this season. STAGE GOLF SHOW NEW YORK (UPI) — An international' Golf Show will be staged at the New York Coliseum March 7-13, 1964, with an expected 200,000 visitors on hand to view exhibits and talk to the nation's top pro money winners. The Metropolitan Professional Golfers Association is co-sponsoring the event ity and Paul Richards took me to the Orioles' training camp at Daytona Beach in 1955. Had Richards been able to engineer a trade, I would have stayed with Baltimore, but he couldn't and I was out of baseball for about 10 days. "Then the telephone rang and it was Lee McPhail, then in the Yankees' front office. He wanted to know if I would like to go to Denver as a player-coach under Houk. He only had to ask me once. "I joined the Denver Bears May 5 and started to learn about managing. We had some fine youngsters — Bobby Richardson, Tony Kubek, Woody Held and Whitey Herzog. "I quickly learned that the players liked Houk. He enjoyed both their confidence and respect. The age gap between him and his players was not as great as it is in most cases and it seemed to make him closer to them. He had natural ability to command. "He was flexible and never carried a grudge. He'd fight somebody right off his feet during a game and, meeting him three hours later, he'd ask him how he was, just as pretty as you please. "I noticed that Houk kept track of every little thing, never trusted his memory. 'The ball can be hit a long way in the thin Denver air and that made Houk even more con- cious of his pitching. A ball that would be just another base hit elsewhere easily might go out of Bear Stadium. It was remarkable how Houk nursed his pitching along under the circumstances. We'd go to the park at 3 o'clock in the afternoon and chew tobacco and talk baseball until the game started at 8 that night Once the training season starts, Houk thinks of nothing but baseball until fall. I'm like that myself and it could be why Ralph told me I should manage. I started in the Detroit chain the next spring." Told of Pesky's kind words, Houk in the other clubhouse said: "Naturally, a manager has to know baseball and what his players and the opponents can do and not do. He must know v.hen to change pitchers, pinch hit, hit and run, sacrifice, etc. He has to make decisions on the spur of the moment. Some will be right and some will turn out wrong. "There isn't much a manager can do in a game he is losing or winning by a lopsided score, say lO-to-2. Strategic moves perhaps decide 22 games out of 132. "If you know how to handle people and are concientious and work at it, there really isn't much to managing." So, you see, Ralph Houk knocks much of the poppycock about inside baseball up into the seats with one good swing. SOMETHING MISSING? Looking for more than the sheU?
