nJTana Evening ««!·«·, f.Jufy 2,1964. Indiana Clubs Lose In Minor County Action GAZETTE Pirates Drop Fourth Straight Roberto No* Happy-Clemente In Waner's Shadow By SANDY PAD WE Newspaper Enterprise Assn. NEW YORK --(NEA)--Probe deep enough, and the bitterness inside Roberto Clemente slowly erases the flamboyant, carefree outer image. "I am tired of playing in a shadow," the Pittsburgh Pirates' rightfielder says. "Everything I do they compare to Paul Waner. I am not Paul Waner s shadow. " I try not to let it bother me, but I get tired of the things some people say. "They call me a showboat because I make basket catches. They don't call Willie Mays a showboat, do they? They say I'm a hypochondriac, too. When I have trouble with my back, they say it's in my mind. "In Houston last year, right before the end of the season, I was still in the race for the batting title and Murtaugh (Danny) told me to do everything possible to win it. One time I was being intentionally walked and I swung at one of the pitches. Then I wasn't a team player any more. People said I was out for myself." The adverse criticism--from segments of the press and fans alike--puzzles the 29-year-old Puerto Rican It also hits his pride and with a person like Clemente this is a vulnerable point because he is regarded as the best rightfielder in the National League by his fellow players. The players elected him over Hank Aaron of the Milwaukee Braves for the starting spot in the ^ 19 64 All-Star game, an honor that means Clemente will be appearing in the classic for the fifth straight year. His lifetime batting average for nine seasons is .303, with his best year in 1961 when he led the league with .351. His fielding is just as strong, having won the Golden Glove award the past three seasons. So why all the criticism? "I think all these things are a myth about Roberto," Pirate pitcher Vern Law said. "It has to be that because he just isn't the kind of guy who would beg off anything unless he didn't feel well. He has played lots of times when he shouldn't have. "He is definitely one of the leaders on this club. He's been around a long time and he knows what he's talking about. A lot of times he talks about the other hitters in our clubhouse meetings. He's thinking about .something all the time. "He really is one of the better ballplayers I've seen since I've been around. He has all the essentials, ability, hustle and desire. That's why it's a bit hard to understand some of these things which have been said." Clemente doesn't understand them either, and although he tries to convey a "who cares" impression, he is hi a frustrating position. Usually, base hits serve as a good silencer of critics, saving how much he reminds them of Paul Waner. saying how much h reminds them of Paul Waner. That shadow is just a lot bigger than he expected. Giants Squeeze 2-1 Win SAN FRANCISCO (AP)--The Pittsburgh Pirates are finding the hospitality a bit on the rough side on their current tour of the West Coast. League-leading San Francisco edged the Bucs, 2-1, Wednesday afternoon, stretching the Pirates losing streak to four. It also pushed the third-place Bucs six and a half games off the pace. Hard throwing Bob Veale (7-6) suffered his first defeat in three decisions against the Giants. He gave up both runs before leaving after four innings with a blister on his pitching hand. His opponent, Juan Marichal, picked up the victory and became the first major league hurler to win 11 games this season. He's lost only three. Willie Mays, conducting a head-to-head contest with Pittsburgh's Roberto Clemente for league batting honors, smashed his 23rd homer in the first inning for the first San Francisco run. Mays, who walked three times, had only one official trip to the plate. He ended the contest with a .347 average. Clemente, leading the league with a .349 mark, collected two singles in four trips and drove in Pittsburgh's only run with an infield hit with the bases loaded in the fifth. Marichal ended the threat by striking out Willie Stargell and Jerry Lynch. The Giants took a 2-0 lead in the second inning on back-to- back doubles by Del Crandall and Jose Pagan. Both teams were slated to tangle again this afternoon. Danny Murtaugh sent young Steve Blass (3-4) against San Francisco's Bob Hendley (7-4). Rain Cancels Two Tilts Two games were played in the Minor County League last night and two other scheduled contests were rained out as both Indiana clubs went down to defeat. At the Fairgrounds, Aultman came from behind to whip Indiana West, 5-3, in a tilt that was called at the end of six innings because of darkness. MINOR COTJNTT LEAGUE Results Last Nljht Aultman 5.

Spence 571 By MIKE RATHET Associated Press Sports Writer Sandy Koufax just can't shake Juan Marichal. Or is it the other way around? Koufax had his greatest season in 1963, winning 25 games. And so did Marichal. Now Koufax, with seven straight victories, has hrought his victory total for this season to 11. And so Marichal. Marichal, the right-handed ace of the National League leading San Francisco Giants, got in a little earlier this time, becoming the majors' first 11-game winner in a 2-1 day game victory over Pittsburgh Wednesday. Koufax, the left-handed ace of the eight-place Los Angeles Dodgers, followed suit in a 3-2 Cookie Rojas, gave the Phillies and Dennis Bennett a 2-0 lead. But Bennett, 8-5, couldn't hold Ford City, 7-4.

At Fulton Run Zig Jamison's Indiana East squad rolled to a 6-1 lead before the host team used two five-run innings to down the East club, 11-8. Fulton Run batted around in the fifth when Gress singled and Brandon was hit by a pitch. Pearce got first on an interference call to load the sacks and Chubi singled home one run. Payson then walked to l o a the bases again then Dewey Stern drove in two markers with a single. Dale Thompson followed with another two-run single. Pearce picked up the win and Tom Koch was tagged with the loss. West Lebanon and Elderton will continue this evening in the bottom of the first at Elderton with West Lebanon leading, 5-0. Saltsburg and Creekside will resume their contest at Creekside with no score in the game. struck out 10 barters -- the fifth time this season he has accomplished that feat and the 56th time in his career. No. 10 this time was West Covington. No. 10 also was No. 1,600 of Koufax' career. Besides Koufax and Marichal, it. The Dodgers scored in the fifth on a walk, John Roseboro's single and a ground out, then pulled ahead with two runs in | the sixth on singles by Maury Wills, Willie Davis and Ron Fairly. Ron Santo hit his 14th and 15th homers and Billy Williams collected his 19th as the Cubs built a 5-1 lead going into the ninth against the Reds. Errors by Andre Rodgers and Ellsworth led to four unearned runs for Cincinnati in the ninth night game triumph over Philadelphia that dropped the second-place Phillies V/2 games behind the Giants. lIcGU!
