But giving up four runs on a single ...! That's what happened to Bobby Bragan's charitable Braves Thursday night when San Francisco handed Atlanta its sixth straight setback, 5-0. Outfielder Felipe Alou was the goat on Cap Peterson's sixth inning single that broke open a 1-0 game. The bases were loaded on two infield hits and an intentional walk to Willie Mays when Peterson came to bat. He laced a single to left and I when the ball bounced past Alou and rolled to the fence, all four runners scored. That gave Bob Bolin a comfortable margin and the Giants' right-hander made it stand up. He allowed only one single over the final seven innings and fin- ilium Major THURSDAY'S STARS BATTING — Luis Aparicio Orioles, tagged iwe singles and scored three runs in Baltimore's 9-6 victory over California.

By MIKE RATHET Associated Press Sports Writer Dick Radatz now is doing his latest act for the Cleveland Indians — and it still works like magic. First he appears. Then he disappears. * * * Radatz did both in the seventh inning Thursday night just hours after the Indians acquired him from Boston. He faced eight batters, retired one, watched five cross the plate and left with the Indians well on their way to an 1H loss to Kansas City. Earlier in the day, Radatz hit of the game during the Poor Bert Yancey! Golf Pro Scores 63 On 'Wrong Day' MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) Perhaps Bert Yancey should have saved that remarkable round for another day. The 27-year-old pro fired $100,000 Memphis Open Golf Tournament Thursday. That matched the Colonial Country Club course record and pushed him into a three-stroke lead. By BEN OLAN NEW YORK (AP) - Figuring the Majors: Willie Mays has snapped out of his slump by collecting 10 hits in his last 25 times at bat, a .400 pace, and lifting his batting average 22 points to .274. The San Francisco star has la safely in lis last six games, including Thursday night's S-0 victory over Atlanta in which he had a run-producing double and a single in three tries. _— Baltimore'' Brooks Robins-n is setting a hot runs-batted-in pace. He drove in three runs Thursday as the Orioles downed California 9-6, boosting his American League-leading total to 45 in 44 games. After 44 games lr.:t season, he had only 19 RBI. He wound 'ip with 80. Manager Grady Hatton of Houston looks at things through rose-colored glasses when his bespectacled reliever, Claude Raymond, pitches. Raymond, a French-Canadian, hasn't given up a run in his last 17 2-3 innings. His over-all record is 3-0, plus five saves, and his earned run average is 1.32. ^^~~When Louis Aparicio of Baltimore had five hits against the Angels Thursday he became the fifth big leaguer to collect that many in one game this year.

"It's like starting life all over again — being born again," said Radatz. "There's nothing wrong with my arm. My trouble is mechanical and if I pitch the way I think I can, the Indians will win the pennant." * * * The way Radatz thinks he can pitch is the way he pitched from 1962 to 1964 when he was dubbed the Monster and twice wOn the Fireman of the Year award as baseball's No. 1 relief pitcher. The way he pitched against the A's is the way he's pitched the last two years while breaking in his disappearing act. The Kansas City victory, coupled with Boston's 12-2 loss to Washington, tumbled the Red Sox into the AL cellar while the A's climbed into ninth place. Elsewhere, Baltimore outlast ed California 9-6 in 10 innings, Detroit edged Minnesota 7-6 and the New York Yankees defeated the Chicago White Sox 5-3. The Senators collected 13 hits, and made the most of three Red Sox errors, eight walks, a wild- pitch and a balk.
