8 - Monday, July 15, 1963 Redlands Daily facts Dodgers 6V2 ahead for biggest lead in years The Los Angeles Dodgers are opening up such a huge lead that they may be able to let the New York Mets play out the last month of the schedule for them. It's been almost a decade- Was, to be exact — since any National League team held a 614-game first-place lead at this stage of the race and, lest it be forgotten, that was the year in which the Dodgers gave Brooklyn its one and only world championship. Apparently determined to avoid a repetition of the collapse that cost them the 1962 pennant, the Dodgers increased their 1963 lead to 6V4 games Sunday when •they beat the PhUadelphia Phillies, 3-2, in a game shortened to six innings by rain. The victory was their seventh in a row and their 12th in their last 13 games. Johnny Podres continued the excellent pitching which has marked the Dodger drive with a seven-hiiter for his eighth victory against six losses. Dodger pitchers have given up only eight runs in the seven-game winning streak and have allowed two runs or less in 12 of their last 18 games. Maury Wills' triple and Jim Gilliam's sacrifice fly gave the Dodgers a run in the first inning and they added two more off los er Cal McLish in the fourth with the help of Ruben Amaro's error, {rfus singles by John Roseboro and Willie Davis. Home runs by Johnny Callison and Amaro produced the Phillies' runs. The Chicago Cubs defeated the St. Louis Cardinals, 7-3, after a 10-3 loss, the Milwaukee Braves won, 7-6, after losing to the Cincinnati Reds, 5-3, and the Houston Colts scored an 8-3 win that extended the New York Mets' losing streak to 15 games in other National League action. In the American League, the New York Yankees beat Kansas City twice, 11-6 and 5-0, Minnesota took a pair from Cleveland, 8-2 and 5-3, the Boston Red Sox blanked the Los Angeles Angels, 5-0 after a 10-8 loss, and the Baltimore Orioles split with the Chicago White Sox, losing the second game, 3-2, after a 6-3 victory. The D e t r o i t-Washmgton twinbill was rained out. The Cardinals unleased a 16- hit attack, featuring homers by Ken Boyer and Bill White, to beat the Cubs behind the eight- hit pitching of Ray Sadecki in their opener. Ex-Redbirds Latry Jackson and Lindy McDaniel combined in a nine-hitter in the nightcap, however, during which Lou Brock, Ron Santo and Ernie Banks homered for the Cubs. Banks' 352nd homer of his career placed him seventh among the NL's all-time homer kings. Reds, Braves Split Vada Pinson had three hits in each game as the Reds and Braves split their doubleheader. He and Marty Keough homered in the first game to help John Tsitouris win his fifth game of the season and deal Bob Shaw his seventh set-back. Pinson also had two singles and a double in the nightcap but they weren't enough to prevent Joey Jay from suffering his 13th loss. Bit blow in the nightcap for the Braves was Joe Torre's two- run wind-blown double in the first inning. Al Spangler's leadoff homer and John Bateman's three-run triple sparked the Colts to a seven-run first inning and Hal (Skinny) Brown took it from there with a nine-hitter that earned him his third win of the year. Galen Cisco suffered his seventh loss against four wins. The second games in New York and Philadelphia and Saii Francisco's scheduled double header in Pittsburgh were rained out. Hill bests Mike Souchak in suddett,death playoff HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (UPI) Dave Hill did not know if he would be able to finish the $25,000 Hot Springs Open golf tournament Sunday because of his father's serious illness. But he not only finished it, he tied for the championship and won a sudden-death playoff with Mike Souchak on the second hole. The slender Hill, carrying only 136 pounds on a six-foot frame, and the burly Souchak. 5-foot-U and 202 pounds, battled through 72 holes on a rain-soaked course to finish with ll-under-par 277s. Hill won the David-and-Goliath fight when Souchak three-putted the par-three second hole, a four- footer stopping just four inches short. Both had parred No. 1. Defending champion AI Johnston and Rex Baxter Jr.. tied with Souchak for the third-round lead, bowed to the spongy greens for 73 each and a third-place tie at 281. Bob Goalby. Ued with HiU in third place at the start of the round, also had a 74 and came in fifth at 282. Hill, 26, successfully fought rains, winds and Souchak despite the fact he had his father's illness constantly on his mind. He missed the Canadian Open last week because doctors did not expect his father to live. He is in a Jackson. Mich., hospital with a lung and heart condition. "I never expected to finish here," said Hill, who had rounds of 69-70-70-68 compared to Sou- chak's 69-67-72-69.

Cadiz surprises field in Hollywood cup INGLEWOOD (UPD-The eyes of western thoroughbred owners were turned towards New Zealand today as a source of racing stock as a result of the surprise win scored by Cadiz in the ?162,100 Hollywood Gold Cup.

Calif., jeweler Victor Graber ran his United States earnings to $252,735 with his victory in the richest race in the West Saturday at Hollywood Park. Graber, a balding three - goal polo playa:, was undecided about future plans fw the horse but said he might start him next week in the $75,000 Sunset Handicap which brings the Hollywood Park meeting to a dose. The happy owner credited an ex-Australian trainer and current longshoreman, Peter J. Griffiths, with calling his attention to Cadiz as a racing prospect and Graber said trainer Bob Wheeler along with jockey Eddie Bums were responsible for the Gold Cup victory. Crimson Satan was sent off the even money favorite in the Gold Cup but the "red devil" was in one of his sulking moods and finished last in the field of starters as Cadiz won the race by a length and a half in the fast time of 1:59 3-5.

First solar plexus pur)ch in 1897 Heavyweight bout By OSCAR FRALEY UPI Sports Writer NEW YORK (UPI)—If a solar plexus punch lets either Sonny Listen or Floyd Patterson "bring home the bacon" in their heavyweight title bout at Las Vegas 10 days hence it merely will be boxing history repeating itself. Both of those terms, which became part of our everyday language, were bom as result of title fights held in Nevada. Bob Fitzsimmons knocked out Jim Corbett at Carson City in 897 to win the heavyweight title, swatting him the final blow in the body. "What would you call the area where the punch landed?" a reporter asked a doctor sitting nearby. "The solar plexus," replied the medico. Thus was bora the "solar plexus punch" which stands in ring history as the title of a breadbasket wallop which takes all the wind out of a man's sails. Cans Gets Telegram At Goldfield, in September of 1906, Joe Cans was getting ready to make a lightweight defense against Battling Nelson. Nelson was established the favorite but, just before the bout, Gans received a wire from his mother in Baltimore wiuch said: "God bless you — and bring home the bacon." Gans did, although there were subsequent rumors that Nelson wasn't in the best of shape and might have done a little "business" on the side. N e v a d a's last heavyweight championship prior to this one was at Reno in 1910 when Jack Johnson ruined Jim Jeffries' comeback attempt with a 15- round kayo. Back in the gas light days, Nevada's booming mining camps made such places as Goldfield, Reno and Carson City choice sites and one of the top referees was a badge-toting feller earned Wyatt Earp. Usually he carried his convincer in his back pocket, just in case the local gentry objected to his decision. Fell By Wayside As boxing became legalized in greater population centers, Nevada fell by the wayside. But the glittering gambling mecca of Las Vegas, looking to lure more tourists who might spend their spare moments and spare money at the tables, has gone all out to once agam make Nevada the capital of the boxing world. Proof of this is the fact that this will be the city's ninth championship fight within little more than three years since Las Vegas opened its new Convention Center. The ill-fated Benny (Kid) Paret beat Don Jordan for the welter crown there in March of 1960; Gene Fullmer battled Ray Robinson, Paret and Dick Tiger in the "come seven" capital; Emile Griffith defended the welter title against both Ralph Dupas and Jorge Fernandez, C^los Ortiz won the lightweight mantle there from Joe Brown, and Willie Pastrano captured the light heavyweight cron-n from Harold Johnson. Listen is a prime favorite to "bring home the bacon" against Patterson in then: closed-circuit television fight. The odds are against Patterson and anybody who tries to beat the tables. by the pitching of Mitdi McGratb, downed the Western fruit Growers, 10-2.

(UPI)— Heavj-weight champion Sonny Liston declared today: "I'll knock out (Floyd) Patterson within five rounds, a week from tonight" despite the facts that: —Patterson has been officially pronounced in better condition for their return 15 round title fight at the Las Vegas Convention Center, July 22. —Patterson scored a sensational training kayo Sunday. —The betting odds favormg Liston dropped a point from 5-1 to 4-1 over the weekend. —The crowds and cheers at Floyd's sparring sessions indicate he is in the midst of an unexpected popularity boom. Undaunted by that boom, big Sonny told a sports writer at the Thunderbird Hotel today, "I'll not only knock him out within five rounds, but I'll do it with my right hand if you insist." The writer had questioned the speed and accuracy now of Sonny's right fist, which seemed to have been missing the target more than in the past. According to Dr. Donald Romeo, chief medical examiner for the Nevada State Athletic Commission, e-x-champ Patterson. 23, is "physically sharper" — with faster reflexes — Uian massive, 29- year old Sonny. And Romeo added that Floyd is "more on edge mentaUy." After an examination of botli bo.xers Sunday, the Las Vegas physician reported: "At this stage of preparation, Patterson seems more ready for the fight; but Liston shows much improvement since their first examination here weeks ago." Bobby Lunn, 18, wins national Publinx golf SACRAMENTO, Ca.if. (UPI) On the strength of long-range putts that were stroked so solidly that they rattled the pm before they dropped into the cup. 18- year-old Bobby Lunn of San Francisco held the Nafional Public Links golf championship today. "They were the key shots," ha said after he had disposed of Steve Opperman, who lives not too far away in San Francisco, one-up in the 36 hole finals Saturday. The first, a 32-foofer, came on the fourth hole of the morning round and put Bobby one-up. The second came in the afternoon on the 26th (8th) hole, 25 feet and got Lunn a birdie—which was good for only a halve. But to the 3,000 fans following the match in 100-degree heat, they were the thrills—and the important shots of the day. Lunn, son of a San Francisco motorcycle policeman, says ha never has had a lesson. But it was obvious through the gruel­ ling 170 holes of play here that he bad all the shots, he chipped out of the ankle deep "fuzz" that the USGA grows around the greens with poise of a professionaL His tee shots boomed down the fur- ways up to 275 yards. His putting was steel-nerred. "I think that my hrons were the best part of my game," he said in evaluation his play. "But I was happy with my woods and putting too."
