Drysdale hurls 1-0 win over St. Louis LOS ANGELES (UPI) - Ifs July again and for last year's Cy Young Award winner, Don Drysdale, it couldn't be a better time of year. In the odd statistics category, Drysdale's lifetime record in the month of July is an enviable 28-4. The figure includes his 1-0 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals Tuesday night. The Dodger righthander won the Cy Young Pitching Award last season on the strength of his impressive 25-9 won-lost record. With Tuesday night's win, which placed Los Angeles in the National Laague lead Vz game ahead of the Cardinals, Drysdale pushed his current won-lost percentage barely above .500 with a 10-9 mark. As for the contrast between his records of the two years. Dodger skipper Walt Alston explained, "Don's pitching as well as he did last year, but we just haven't scored as many runs for him." The Dodgers' only tally Tuesday night was driven in by Ron Fairly, who singled to center after Frank Howard singled and advanced to second on an infield out. Tile redheaded outfielder - first baseman was the only lefthanded batter Alston left in the starting lineup against southpaw Curt Simmons. Ron went down swinging his first two times up, but delivered the single in the seventh inning—his 44th run batted in of the year, highest total on the team. To win the opener of the three game series against the Cards Dr>-sdale found it necessary to pitch a shutout, his initial blanking of the season. In his previous start, he was on the losing end of a 1-0 shutout by Warren Spahn of the Milwaukee Braves. Drysdale said after the game he fell the "key pitch" of the game for him was "a low inside sinker" thrown to Dick Groat in the ninth inning with none out and George Altman on s e c o n d base via a single and stolen base. Groat, who bounced back to Do 's- dale on that pitch, went O-for-^ in the game while his batting lead rival, Tommy Davis of the Dodgers, collected a single in three times up. In tonight's game, the pitching opponents will be Sandy Koufax, 12-3. for the Dodgers, and Bob Gibson, 7-3, for Johnny Keane's club. Both pitchers have won two games and lost none in the Dodger - Cardinal meetings this In critical condition World record vaulter injured on trampoline SEATTLE (UPI) —Brian Stemberg, holder of the pending world record pole vault of 16 feet 8 inches, remained in critical condition here today at University Hospital following an accident on the trampoline. University of Washington officials said Sternberg was executing a double twist back somersault last night at HEC Edmundson Pavilion on the campus when he landed on the back of his head and neck. Dr. William Robertson, medical director of the university hospital, said an examination indicated a dislocation of the cervical or neck verterbrae. Bobertson said this indicated possible damage to the spinal cord. Sternberg was placed in fraction, Robertson said, and no surgery was foreseen in the im mediate future. Sternberg, 20, and a junior next year at the University of Washington, set the pending world mark at the Compton Relays at Compton, Calif., June 7. He also won the National AAU championship June 22 in St. Louis with a winning vault of 16 feet, 4 inches. He was to have left New York July 14 with a U.S. track and field team which will go to Europe for four meets. The team will compete against a Russian team in i\Ioscow July 21-22. An accomplished gym nast, Sternberg was working out on the trampoline to keep in shape for the European trip when the accident occurred. Giants win 7-0, greatest pitching duel in 30 yrs. By MILTON RICHMAN UPI Sports Writer With one swing of his bat, Willie Mays broke up the National League's greatest pitching duel in 30 years and all but broke Warren Spahn's heart. Mays accomplished his handiwork when he lined a home run over the left field fence with one out in the 16th inning Tuesday night to give Juan Marichal and the San Francisco Giants a l-o victory over the Milwaukee Braves. For 15 dramatic innings, the 42- year-old Spahn called on all his cunning and pitched on dead even terms with the stronger and Rakow to rejoin team WASHINGTON (ITPD-Ed Rakow of the Kansas City Athletics, who Tuesday joined a growing list of major leaguers who had gone "AWOL" during the 1953 season, plans to rejoin the team in Detroit on Friday. Rakow, one of ithe pitching mainstays of the A's, left the club without permission prior to Tuesday night's game with the Washington Senators. According to a club spokesman, Rakow was contacted at his Pittsburgh home when he failed to show up for the game, and the 27-year-old right-hander assured manager Eddie Lopat he would be with the team in Detroit. What disciplinary action the Athletics would impose probably hinges on the outcome of a conference bet\veen Rakow and Lopat. Rakow, in his third year with the A's, has a current record of seven wins and five losses. harder-throuing 25-year-old Marichal, but Mays' 15th homer ended the league's finest pitching duel since Carl Hubbeil of the Giants went 18 innings to beat the St. Louis Cardinals, 1-0, exactly 30 years to the day. Marichal scattered eight hits and struck out 10 in posting his 13lh victory of tie season and his ninth in a row. The defeat was doubly tough for Spahn. Not only did it snap his personal five-game winning streak and represent his fourth loss against II victories, but it also nullified a valiant 14th inning effort in which he heroically pitched himself out of a jam by getting Ed Bailey on a fly ball for the final out with the bases full. It was the Giants' only other serious threat of the night against the Milwaukee veteran, who walked only one baiter and struck out two. Sari's Song wins Lassie stakes IN'GLEWOOD fUPD—Hotehnan J.K. Hcussels today had no regrets over paying $17,000 for 2- year-old filly Sari's Song. The daughter of Spy Song Tuesday repaid the price and then some by capturing a two-length victorj' over pacesetting Sweet and Fleet in the featured $29,500 Holl>nvood Lassie Stakes at Hoil>-wood Park. Pretty Bubble took thL-d. The winner was timed in 1.04 for the 5'.i furlongs. Heussels collected $17,500 for the surprise win. Don Poe aces fifth hole at Country club Don Poe, Redlands Police captain, scored a hole>ln-one on the fifth hole yesterday at Redlands Country club. Poe used a three wood for his sensational shot on the 200 -yard three par hole, Leo Crane, club pro, said. It was Poe's first ace. Poe doesn't have an established handicap, but estimates it would be about 20. He had 48-51-9& for the 18 holes. Making up the foursome were three other members of t h e RPD, Copt. Warren Elliott, and Sgts. Dick Grainger and Bob Orwig. Only four boats have qualified for Gold Cup DETROIT (UPI I — Despite nearly ideal weather conditions for the past two day, only four boats have qualified so far to race in the Gold Cup next Sunday, including last year's winner. Miss Thriftway, piloted by Bill Muneey. Muncey's boat raced last year under the name of Century 21. Time trials for qualification on the Detroit River course off Belle Isle resumed today. The water has been smooth and the sun bright for the first two days of qualifying times. Two-time cup winner Danny Foster escaped serious injury Tuesday when his hydroplane. Gale VII, threw a propeller and sank in 28 feet of water. The accident happened as Foster, 45, trying to make a comeback after being in semi-retirement for seven years, roared out of the second turn on the three- lap, three-mile course. Foster was hitting a speed of nearly 100 miles an hour as he hit the back straightaway opposite the pits. Then the prop flew off and went through both the hull and deck. Foster got wet only to his knees in a quick rescue operation. Then Gale VII, the biggest craft entered in the race at 9,600 pounds, nosed to the bottom and remained there as other hydroplanes took to the course in their qualification attempts. The boats to make it so far were Miss Thriftway, Miss US-5, driven by Don Wilson; Don Musson's Miss Hardahl, and Mariner Two driven by Fred Alter, Pearson's homer not enough Redlands Daily Facts Wed., July 3, 1963 - 11 AlCTOR—Chuck McKinley of San Antonio, Tex., makes a backhand return during Wimbledon match with Britain's Bobby Wilson. The victory breezed him into the semi-finals. McKinley downs German reach Wimbledon finals WIMBLEDON, England (UPI) — Bouncy Chuck McKinley of San Antonio, Tex., aiming to become the first native American in eight years to win the Wimbledon men's singles championship, reached the final round of the tournament today by beating Germany's Willy Bungert, 6-2, 6-4, 8-6. .McKinley's opponent in Friday's final will be the winner of today's semifinal match between Manuel Santana of Spain and Fred Stolle of Australia. Not since Tony Trabert won this coveted tennis prize in 1955 has a native American ruled at Wimbledon. Alex Olmedo. a U. S. Davis Cupper, won in 1959 but he was a Peruvian. McKinley himself reached the final in 1961 but was defeated by Australia's Rod Laver. A $100,000 professional offer awaits the 22-year-old McKinley should he win the Wimbledon crown. Santana ruled a slight favorite over Stolle, who eliminated Frank Foehling of Coral Gables, Fla., in the quarter-finals. Chances for the first Ail-Ameri­ can final in the women's singles since 1957 improved Tuesday when Darlene Hard of Los Angeles and Billie Jean Moffitt of Long Beach, Calif., won their quarter-final matches. In Thursday's semifinals. Miss Hard will meet top-seeded Margaret Smith of Australia in a rematch of last year's U.S. final at Forest Hills, NY, won by the jwwerful Aussie, and Miss Moffitt will play Ann Haydon-Jones of England. Miss Moffitt reeled off her second straight upset Tuesday when she whipped Maria Bueno. two- time champion from Brazil, 6-2, 7-5. The 22-year-oId Califomian surprised second-seeded Lesley Turner of Australia in the previous round. .Miss Hard, a two-time runner- up here, strolled into the semi finals when Jan Lehane, another Aussie, twisted her ankle in the fourth game of the second set and had to retire. Miss Hard won the opening set, 6-1, but was trailing 1-2 in the second when -•^liss Lehane was injured. B.ALTIMORE (UPD-Not even a home run punch can assure vic­ torj", even when its delivered with the distinctive flair of "mightly" Albie Pearson. The Los Angeles Angels were ready to testify to that today after losing a 4-3 decision to the Baltimore Orioles — despite a home run by Pearson in the eighth. The Angels assigned Dean Chance the job of tr>-ing to snap a brief two-game losing streak in tonight's game. He goes after his seventh win, opposing Milt Pappas, 6-4, in the evening game. Pearson, hardly a Mickey Mantle or Hank Aaron in power, still is well ahead of his regular pace in home runs in what may well be his finest American League season. His solo shot in the eighth was No. 5 for the year. But it was too little, and too late. In the seventh. Bob Johnson's single and AI Smith's double capped a two-run Baltimore surge that broke a 2-2 tie. Pitcher Paul Foytack, formerly of Detroit, was the victim and ultimate loser by vitue of the Baltimore outburst. Steve Barber, the Baltimore starter, jielded two runs to the Angels in the fourth on three hits and an outfield error by Boog Powell. The win eventually was registered by Dick Hall, who pitched the final three innings, yielding only Pearson's homer and two other safeties while striking out four. Leon Wagner, who has been the hottest batter in the majors for several days, cooled down after a day's rest. He failed to hit safely in three trips. Bob Rodgers, Angels' catcher, socked three hits, including a run- scoring single. Baltimore edged ahead of Los Angeles into sole possession of sixth place by vitue of the win. TITLE FIGHT SET BANGKOK (UPI) - Plans have been announced for world flyweight champion Pone King- petch of Thailand to defend his crown against Japanese challenger Hiroyuki Ebihard in Tokyo on Sept. 7 or 10. Junior Johnson once wasn't fast enough on the getaway By OSCAR FRALEY UPI Sports Writer DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (UPI) —Glenn Robert Johnson is a hard man to catch when he gels his bands on a steering wheel and you can't hardly blame him. There was a time when "Junior," as he is known to the slock car racing fraternity which is gathered here for Thursday's "Firecracker 400" mile automobile race, wasn't quite fast enough. Seems like "Junior," so-called because he was named after his pappy, once was caught with his motor cold when the revenooers showed up at the family's white lightning plant up in Wilkes County. N.C. In that section, from time almost beyond memory, it has been accepted as part of the local tradition that certain folks are entitled to make their own squeez- ins. The local folks have one idea and the government has another. Anyhow, Junior's pappy was ailin' and Junior was looking after things when the tax, likker and people collectors came to call. Junior went on a small vacation, and came back a man who Ti ^Uy intended that nobody else was ever gonna catch him again. Which makes him one of the favorites in the 400, particularly in view of the fact that he is fresh off a victory in the Dbtie 400 at Atlanta. Junior is billed now as a chicken farmer out of Ronda, N.C, having turned his back on the beverage business, and be proved that there had better not be anybody here who is chicken when he wheeled his Chevrolet one lap in a tuneup over the Daytona International Speedway at a whistling 165.593 miles per hour. Just in case you think these stock car fellers are running for fun, let it be pomted out that Junior earned $16,395 in copping the DLxie 400, which is about double the annual minimum wage in baseball's major leagues. And Fred Lorenzen is leading the stock car drivers' money winning list with more than $69,000 already this year, which compares favorably with the top golf pros and baseball players. It's a bit more hazardous, of course, than facing Don Drysdale's fast ball or keeping your nerves under control when you have to dunk a 10-foot putt to finish in the money. But these guys take it all m stride, one obvious reason being that it's better than sailing down a mountainside with revenooers behind you holding a fistful of pistol. The winner Thursday is expected to have to average right around 160 miles per hour with Fireball Roberts, one of the top NASCAR chauffeurs, asserting boldly that it might go close to 165 miles per hour. ^Vhich makes it, between those figures, the fastest 400 miles ever run any\vhere by any kind of cars. Daytona already holds the record for the fastest 500 miles. Fireball's 152.529 in winning the 1962 Daytona 500. Three USAC stars are challenging the NASCAR pilots for the $64,000 prize money. They are Troy Ruttman, 1952 Indianapolis winner, in a Mercury; A. J. Foyt, the 1961 Indy winner, in a Smokey Yunick Chevrolet, the same one in which John Rutherford set a world mark of 165.183 for two laps at Daytona last February; and Paul Goldsmith, the present USAC stock car champion. A field of 500 is expected to start before a crowd of 40,000. The revenooers won't have a chance.

Houk replies to Stuart in All-Star game rhubarb NEW YORK (UPI) — Ralph Houk, never one to dodge a fight, fired right back at Dick Stuart today in the first rhubarb of the 1963 All-Star Game. Stuart, putting in his first season in the American League with the Boston Red Sox and leading the cu-cuit's first basemen in homers and nuis batted m, finished second to Joe Pepitone of the Yankees in the balloting by the players but was passed over by Houk. "It's tough to have a third- string catcher like Ralph Houk keep you off the All-Star team," Stuart said, according to the Boston Record American. "What would he know about how important it is to be on an AH-Star team? He never made one in his life. All he ever did was sit in the dugout." The Yankee manager, who will handle the American League All- Slar team ta Cleveland on July 9, was calm when he learned of Stuart's remarks but suddenly snapped: "In the last game of the recent Red Sox series here — it was an important game — and his own manager (Johnny Pesky) used a fellow by the name of (Dick) Williams at first base." Houk was upset over Stuart's criticism but tried his best to conceal his feelings. "I don't blame him for being mad," the Yankee manager said at first. "I'm sorry he feels that way about it, but a manager can't always stick to the second choice in the balloting. "I left off some other pretty good players like Whitey Ford, Bill Monbouquette and Roger Maris, and I think Stuart is a good player." Then, after remaintag silent a few seconds, Houk got m his dig about Stuart playing second fiddle to Williams during the Yankees' recent series with the Red Sox. Houk followed the balloting of the players in every case except first base where he chose Norm Siebem of Kansas City mstead of Stuart. "I didn't do it arbitrarily," Houk explained. "The rules say at least one player must be picked from each club. No Kansas City player was chosen so 1 picked Siebem. We needed another left-handed hitter anyway." vich; Dean Tharaldson and Gary Mercado. Minor T\so heavy scoring innings paved the way for Pratt Brothers as they bombed Lockheed, 17-3.
