PAQE FOURTEEN ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH MONDAY, Wit 1 195» Coast Jinx Continues, Giants Down Cards; Boston Whips Yanks Braves Break Loss Streak, Beat Pirates By JOE REtCHLER Press Sport* Writer The Giants are still putting off ninth Inning heroics, one of the reasons San Francisco continues to hound Milwaukee, hanging on only one game behind the league leading Braves today. For the third straight day, the Giants won a game in the ninth inning Sunday scoring the winning run In that frame. With the bases full, two out and the score tied in the last of the ninth, Cardinal relief pitcher Larry Jackson plunked "Jimmy Davenport with a pitch, 'forcing over the winning run. It was Jackson's second straight loss. He got In a jam by walking pitcher Red Worthington with one out. Whitey Lockman singled. Willie Kirkland forced Lockman and Willie Mays drew an Intentional pass, IBling the bases. Jackson's first pitch to Davenport hit him in the back. Philadelphia's Phillies extended their winning streak to seven by defeating Cincinnati 7-1, but the Redlegs won the second game of the dottbleheader 11-4. The Braves broke their five-game losing streak as Joey Jay hurled a 2-0 shutout against Pittsburgh, Chicago's -Cubs, behind the one-hit pitching of ,Dick Drott and Don Elston, defeated Los Angeles 6-2 The New York Yankees' first place lead in the American League remained 11 games despite their iO-4 defeat by Boston.

Detroit nipped Chicago 2-1 and Wash ingtori snapped • tie in the eighth to defeat Baltimore 4-3. /,,,;,> Jay, the Braves' 22-yearo><l bonus right-hander, throttled the Pirates with only four hits for his second victory in five decisions. Wes Covington batted in both Milwaukee runs with a single in the fifth and a home run in the seventh, both against Curt Raydon. In the Cubs' second straight triumph at Los Angeles, Drott won his fourth in ten decisions. He had a no-bitter until Jim Gilliam got the lone Dodger hit, a single with one out in the seventh. Drott, however, . had to be replaced after he forced in a run in the •eventb with his eighth pass. Gus Bell rapped four hits and drove in four rvaa- to pace Cincinnati's 15-hit attack in the second game victory after the Phil lies had equaled the National League's longest winning, streak' of the season in the opener. Rookie pitcher Ray Semproch limited the Redlegs to five hits for his 10th triumph as the Phils made it seven in a row in the 'first game. Jay's Shutout Ends 5-Game Losing Streak MILWAUKEE (AP)-Dropping a child into water to teach him to swim may have its drawbacks, but a baseball version of this sinker-swim philosophy worked wonders for Joey Jay and the Milwaukee Braves. The 22-year-olri right - hander stopped the National League leaders' losing streak at five games Sunday with a four-hit, 2-0 shut out over the Pittsburgh Pirates. It was otiJy his second victory in five decisions. His first triumph also was a 2-0 shutout, in six innings over St. Louis. Jay. who pocketed $40,000 for Gate Down, Nats Move Under Study »' By OEOROB BO WEN Associated Press Sports Writer BALTIMORE (AP) —The recent shifting tides of major league baseball continue to roll today with the Washington Senators taking a sounding on their possible movement. Calvin Griffith, president of the Senators, American will ask League the other owners how they feel about continuing to play in Washington. Washington is last in the standings and more important to other operators last in attendance. Visiting teams are paid according to each ticket sold. One Washington director claimed at the last board meeting that visiting teams barely made expenses. The directors instructed Griffith to ask the owners at their meeting in conjunction with the All-Star game their reaction to a move out of the nation's capital. Minneapolis, Houston, Dallas and Toronot have been mentioned as likely new homes of the Senators. An internal struggle has been going on the last couple of years over an itch for Washington to join the American League search for greener pastures. In the last four years, AL franchises have been moved from St. Louis to Baltimore and Philadelphia to Kansas City. The National League joined the upheaval this year when the Dodp irs and Giants were moved from New York to California. The urge for change hasn't stopped there. Both leagues, meeting separately, are expected to hear talk about expanding from 8 to 10 teams. In this connection, the Na- ional League will hear a report on ah idea for New York City to build a stadium as a lure for return of a franchise. American League sentiment for expansion does not seem favorable so far. However, if .the two leagues deadlocked and it is up to Commissioner Ford Frick, the move would be made. Nation's Golfers Begin Public Play Today CHICAGO (AP) — Pay-as-you- play golfers from all walks of life — bartenders, steel workers, firemen and even a former big .eague outfielder — tee off today in the National Public Links Tournament. The tournament is one for golf- ng's 'Joe Doaks, the guys who get up at daybreak and wait their urns at the municipal links — the guys who have to talk their bosses nto giving them time off from work to play in the big meet.

Manager Mike Higglns had plans for him, but only in relief roles, No. 2 behind Lefty Leo Kiely. Today, as Higglns takes inven lory during the season's half-way turn, he shudders to think where his second place Sox would be without Dclock. Ike not only has blossomed into a starting pitcher but he has become the team's biggest winner and the ace of the staff. The 28-year-old right-hander won his seventh game without defeat Sunday as the Red Sox defeated the New York Yankees 10-4. It was Boston's first victory over the American League leaders since April 16 and only the second in eight decisions this season. The Yankees remained 1L games in front of Boston and Kansas City, tied for second. The A's were beaten by Cleveland 8-5. Detroit nipped Chicago 2-1 and Washington came from behind to shade Baltimore 4-3. In the National League, Milwaukee retained its first place margin of one game over San Francisco with a 2-0 shutout of Pittsburgh The Giants made it two in a row over St. Louis, 5-4. Chicago whipped Los Angeles 6-2 and Philadelphia and Cincinnati split a doubleheader. The Phillies won their seventh straight with a 7-1 opening victory and the Redlegs took the nightcap 11-4. After limiting the Yankees to four hits through seven innings, Delock was clipped for three more lits in the eighth, including Mickey 'Mantle's 21st home run. Ike received credit for snapping the Yankees' five-game win- ling streak, however, when Kiely replaced him with two runners on base and one out and retired the next five batters. Delock, counting his last four decisions in .1957, now owns a string of 10 successive victories. Ted Williams and Jackie Jensen paced the Red Sox's 13-hit attack against loser Don Larsen and five relievers. Each collected three hits. Williams rapped his 14th borne run and Jensen drove in three runs to raise his league leading RBI total to 68. Jackie has hit safely in his last 15 games. Jim Bu'nning racked up his fifth straight victory with a six-hit per : ormance for the Tigers against the White Sox. The loser was Dick Donovan, his 10th in 13 decisions. Cleveland rookie Gary Bell hurled a seven hitter for his third victory in his first complete game in the majors. Ned Carver, who had beaten the Indians three times was the KC loser. Relief pitcher Dick Hyde assured Washington of its first home victory against Baltimore since May 27, 1957, by retiring three straight Orioles in the ninth. Russ Kemmerer was the winner.

Pitchers Are Ready For All Star Go By JACK Associated Press Sports writer BALTIMORE (AP) - For the first time In recent years, the managers of the All-Star baseball teams will have a stable of well- rested starting pitchers. None of the 15 pitchers (eight in the National and seven in the American) slated for Tuesday's silver anniversary game started Sunday games. A few yearn bnck, it seemed everybody on the roster worked on the final day of regular fiy. Manager Casey Stengel of the New York Yankees, perennial boss of the Americans, sounded off last year at St. Louis when he learned pitchers he wanted to use weren't available. Old Case picked three men off his own Yankee staff this year. He was able to see to it that Bob Turley, top man in the majors with a 12-3 record, didn't pitch since beating Washington Friday with a three-hitter. Manager Fred Haney of the Milwaukee Braves, who heads the Nationals, also has been close mouthed about his pitching selections. However, he leaned toward Bob Friend of Pittsburgh. Friend beat Milwaukee Saturday for his 10th victory. The preponderance of right- handed hitters in the starting lineups, selected by the players' votes, makes it desirable to start a right-handed pitcher on each side. Stengel, whose Americans are favored 13-10, has Early Wynn of Chicago, Ray Narleskl of Clwe- winners in the fender races. By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Batting — Frank Boiling.

The 6-footer from Pocono Manor, Pa., tangled with Dow Finsterwald of Tequesta. Fla., In a sudden death playoff Sunday after they had tied in the $22,000 Rubber City Open with scores of 269—or 15 under par— for the 72-hole test. Wall won the playoff with a birdie on the second extra hole of the par-71 Firestone Country Club course. Wall said: "On the final round my two playing partners, Mike Souchak and Jack Fleck, had putts on that second hole just like the one I had against Dow. I didn't expect to be back that way for a year or so, but I noticed that both Mike and Jack missed their putts about an inch to the left. So I just hit mine straight at the mid die of the hole, ignoring %vhat looked like a bend in the green, and the ball went in for the birdie that wrapped it up." Finslerwald went into the final round four strokes behind and was still three strokes back of Wall with three holes to go. But he birdied each of the last three, climaxing his spurt with a 40-ioot putt on the 72nd hole to force the playoff. Wall picked up $2,800. Raf er Johnson Should Break World Record PALMYRA, N.J. (AP) - If all goes according to plan, there are going to be a lot of pop-eyed Russians when big Rafer Johnson finishes his decathlon performance in Moscow July 28. "Rafer should break the world record and clobber that Russian," predicted Johnson's coach, Dickey Drake. "The Russian is good, and it ought to be interesting to watch the two of them but there will be no doubt as to the outcome. Rafer will win." The Russian" Drake referred to is Vassily Kuzentsov — big, talented and eager. Right now, he has all-time world record of 8,016 points pending. If Johnson betters, it in Moscow, it will never get on the books. Johnson, a quiet-spoken 200- pounder, who is president of UCLA's student body, holds the current listed world record of 7,985 points. If he beats Kuznetsov's standard in Moscow, he'll get a little additional balm because the Russians themselves will have to submit the record. The International Amateur Athletic Federation meets next month to consider record applications, so Johnson will have to go for broke in Moscow. Johnson won the National AAU championship here Saturday with 7,754 points. Both he and his coach had hoped he'd break the record then. "He had a couple of sub-par performances," said Drake.

Missed Fly Ruins Drott No-Hit Try By CHARLES MAKER . Associated Press Sportg Writer LOS ANGELES (AP) - If it hadn't been for the fickle flight of a baseball, Dick Drott might be a member of an exclusive fraternity today. The young Chicago righthander had a no-hitter in the works Sim- day when Junior Gilliam of tht Los Angeles Dodgers hit the ball on a high arc toward short right field with one out in the seventh inning. The ball appeared destined for an unauspicious flight to somebody's glove. But instead it dropped in for a .base hit—one that should be noted in the box score with blushing red ink. "I thought it'd be caught when I saw it take off," Drott said later in the dressing room. "It looked high enough, but I guess the sun was in Lee's eyes." The Lee he spoke of is Lee Walls, the Cub rightfielder, who came within a foot or two oj getting his glove on the ball. "I should have had it," he said, "I got off to a slowstart." "I got off to slowstart." The villainous Mr. Gilliam also was surprised to see the ball hit the ground. "I never expected • hit on that one," he admitted. "When balls go up like that, you're usually out of there." As it turned out, the Cubs won 6-2 but Drott never finished the seventh inning. He walked one man before Gilliam's hit and two afterward, forcing in a run. And the Dodgers got another when Carl Furillo hit a sacrifice fly, picking up the 1,000th RBI of his major league career. But Drott appeared shaken when his no-hitter was shattered and the blooper by Gilliam may have had a deteriorating effect on his performance later in the inning. Altogether, Drott walked eight men. He had been on dangerous ground a couple of times earlier in the game. I've never been that wild be- tore," he said. "I was throwing an awful lot of balls. I was putting my curve where I wanted it —low and away — but they just weren't calling 'em strikes." Drott threw his last one-hitter a few years back for Cedar Rapids of the Three-I League. H« pitched his only no-hitter at Western Hills High School in Cincinnati. If he was deprived of a second one Sun'day, he at least could claim a victory. It was his first in five games and lei I him with • 4-6 record. Fight Results By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Brooklyn — Jose Torres, 161, New York, outpointed Wes Low*, ry, 156, Alleutown, Pa., six.
