Pirates 4 ST, LOUIS, July 1 (JP) The St. Louis . Cardinals edged the wobbly Pittsburgh Pirates 5-4 tonight and thus remained in' a virtual tie for first place, just two' percentage points behind the leading Philadelphia Phils. Howard Pol-let struck out nine in gaining the victory,; but needed help in the ninth when Johnny Hopp poled a three-run triple. born McCall on the back nine of the second 18. The lead changed hands twice and the match had been evened four times before the Indianapolis golfer succeeded in gaining his advantage and closing the match on the 35th hole by stopping McCalrs putt with a perfect stymie. . - The two collegians opened the match by halving the first four holes with pars and splitting the ! fifth with a pair of birdie fours Wampler was never in trouble on the first five and was effective on the greens. McCall, using a three wood for his tee shots throughout the match, recovered from erratic drives with deadly accurate iron shots and matched the Big Ten champion's putting on every green. Wampler succeeded in taking the sixth hoIe when he sank a 15-foot putt for t birdie three on the par four hole. McCall two-putted the green for a par four. They halved the hole with birdies on seven and pars on eight and nine. The first nine ended with Wampler one up with a medal score of 32 strokes, three under par. McCall had a medal of 33, two under. The second nine opened with Roth players reachinr the number 10 rreen with their tee shots, two putting the rreen, and halving- the hole with a. pair of birdie threes. Both shot par rolf for the next three holes but Wampler's putter turned hot again on the short 14th hole and he sank a sen-sationel 20 foot putt for a birdie two to take the hole from McCall who two-putted for a par three. The powerful McCall came back on the next two holes to take them both with birdies. Consistently long off the tee., he suddenly turned red hot and . pin pointed his chip shot to 15 within a few feet of the cup. He drilled his putt for a four. On the long 16th he turned on his power again and was on the green in two. He two putted the green for another birdie. Wampler lost both holes shooting par golf. They halved the 143-yard 17ih with par threes and McCall ended the first eighteen one up when Wampler missed a five foot putt on the final hole of the first half of the match McCall made his putt for his fifth birdie of the match. McCall came from the first 13 with a medal score of 66. five under par, and Wampler had a 67, four wider. Wampler opened the afternoon round with a birdie three on the 19th hole to take it from McCall's par. They split the 20th with par four's and bogied their first hole of the match on 21. McCall's try for a foul" .foot putt hung on the Hd of the cup , and wouldn't fall despite the corrf-bined concentration of McCall and Ted Payseur. tournament chairman. Both boys shot par golf for the 22nd and 23rd and McCall succeeded in evening up the match when he putted for a birdie four on 24 and took the hole from Wampler's par. Wampler re-j gained a two up advantage when he birdied the par four 25th and took the 26th on McCall's bogie j over on the par three hole. Wampler cashed in on 33 when McCall got in trouble and took a bogie. He kept the pressure by going one under on the next hole to make the count two hole up and two to play. Both boys drove the green on the 145-yard , 35th hole. Wampler was away and had a long putt. He shot and failed to drop the shot but ended with a perfect stymie on McCall to stop his putt for a birdie. McCall's attempt to ' go around Wampler' j ball finished far wide of the cup to end the match In Fred Wampler's favor, two and one. . Ted Payseur, tournament chairman, presented the Chick Evans individual traveling trophy and the runner-up cup to Wampler and McCall in a presentation ceremony at the course club house immediately after the match.

W ampler s Rise to NCAA Title J Is Story of Constant Determination By JIM DE VOSS When one stops to think about it, the stage was set for for Fred Wampler's victory in the N.C.A.A. golf tournament here Saturday. Perhaps not set in the strictest sense of the word, but the role was there and the good-looking Purdue senior played it to the hilt After being- a medalist runner-up in the 1949 N.C.A.A., (he was beaten in the seconc round by Morris Williams Jr., of Texas) he entered the United States Amateur and moved to the quarter-finals Already, his plan was underway. - . This year, as No. 1 man, he led the Purdue Boilermakers to the Big Ten team title. grabbing up the conference's indi- srhpdulpd to en for the Dukes and five. They closed the third nine f Henry Pippen and Joe Prucha toeing the mound for the uassers. Albuquerque ' will atternpt to continue its win streak in the Panhandle trip after soundly dumping Amarillo three straight. with Wampler two up. McCall tried to come back on the final nine by driving to the brfck of the green of the 28th hole, chipped to two feet from the cup, and sunk his putt for a three. Wampler lost the hole with a par four. "They split 29 with a pair -of par fives and Wampler regained his two-up lead with a two putt birdie on 30. Both boys took par on 31 to keep the count two up for WamDler. McCall rallied again on 32 when Wampler's putter turned cold and he went one OILERS ASSAULT BLUE HURLERS, 20-7 ABILENE, July 1 W Pam-pa's Oilers assaulted three Abilene pitcherj for 23 base hits and a humiliating 20-7 beating to open the short series here tonight. Home runs by Roy Parker and Engel added to the unmerriment for Blue Sox players and parti- vidual -crown in the same sweep. ; Then' into contention for the National he came carving out' an amateur record-tying 66 in the practice rounds to strength-,, en his claim. After that he drilled a 71-69140 for co-medalist runner-up honors in the 36-hole qualifying rounds to ' really establish himself as a' threat for Harvia Ward's defended N.C.A.A. individual golf championship. And he didn't let, up until he got it. .He slaughtered Denver's Paul McMullen, . 6 and 5 in the first round, then scratched out Dick Askley of Kansas, 2 and 1 in the second. Again, he flashed his all-around linksmanship - to outclass San Jose's Warren Mc-Carty, 6 and 5 in, the third round before running head-on . into teammate Gene , Coulter . in the quarter-finals. - - In one of ' the outstanding matches of ; t h e tournament Wampler turned hot on the back nine for a 3 and 1 victory even though" he lost, the 16th with a birdie to Coulter's eagle three. His semi-final round against Billy Maxwell of North Texas State proved that the Indianapolis shotmaker was a real competitor. After losing the first three holes to sensational putting, Wampler began - the long trek back, finally winning 3 and 1 on the 17th green. In the finals he again proved that he could come from behind. One down at the halfway point despite a five-under-par medal round of 67, he called upon his clutch game to annex the title. The end came when he layed a stymie on the 17th green for the 2 and 1 payoff victory over Colgate's Bob McCall. ....... Plumbers and Staggs Win Semi-Pro.
