Blythevflle (Art.) Courier News - Mwfty, June 18, MM - Fiji Nine llth for Juan (and Sandy) Big Don Is Downed By DICK COUCH A'sociatcd Press Sports Writer Don Drysdale and Sandy Koufax, who traveled the high road as an entry a few months ago, are going in opposite directions today. Juan Marichal is keeping Koufax company on the expressway while Drysale Is chasing Sammy Ellis down a ene-way side street. Marichal outpitched Drysdale Sunday as San Francisco edged Los Angeles 3-2 and pushed within four percentage points of the National League-leading Dodgers. The Giants' ace tossed a four- bitter for his llth victory of the season, tying the Dodgers' Koufax for the major league lead. Drysdale, knocked out in the sixth inning, suffered his third straight setback and is 4-7 for the year. Meanwhile, Ellis, a 22-game winner for Cincinnati last season, became this year's first 10- game loser when he yielded an llth inning run that gave the New York Mets a 8-2 victory over the Reds. Drysdale and Koufax, who won 23 and 28 games, respectively, in 1965, staged a tandem holdout siege during spring training that netted them contracts totaling $245,000. Koufax, who reportedly received $130,000, is off to the best getaway of his career—with an 11-1 record and 1.40 earned run average-but Drysdale is struggling. The big right-hander has completed only three of 14 starts. His ERA is 4.36-4iighest on the Dodger staff-and he's been rocked for 11 home runs. Marichal, who also held out this spring after a 22-13 finish in 1965, signing for an estimated $70,000 a few days before Koufax and Drysdale came to terms with the Dodgers, snapped a two-game losing streak with his victory Sunday. He survived twe LA home runs while boosting his current record to 11-2 and extending his lifetime hex over the Dodgers at Candlestick Park to 12-0. Ellis, who has thrown 15 home run balls this season, tops in the league, lost his fifth straight when New York's Jerry Grote broke a 2-2 deadlock with a two- out, run-scoring single in the llth. Ellis, 22-10 in 1985, is 2-10 this year. Pittsburgh outscored Atlanta 11-8, Philadelphia topped Si Louis 5-3 and Houston spanked Chicago 8-4 in other NL action. Chris Short checked St. Louis on five hits and Bill White slugged a two-run homer as the Phillies ended the Cardinals' winning string at four. Home runs by John Bateman, Rusty Staub and Dave Nichol iBOWUHO Allen* Page twirled 202-480; Jack Wagner 591; and Foy Etchieson 220 in Kings & Queens League at Shamrock. Third- place Road Runners ran up 799- 22M.

With Frank Robinson added to the Orioles'. already potent attack, Baltimore was expected in many quarters to breeze to the LA pennant. But a pitching staff that has managed only 13 complete games in 46 starts has left the Orioles in a three-way struggle with Cleveland and Detroit. Frank and Brooks Robinson continued their slugging in an.8- 1 romp over Boston Sunday bt- fore the Orioles announced what they hope will be a solution to the pitching problem, acquiring relief ace Eddie Fisher from the Chicago White Sox in exchange for infieldcr Jerry Adair. "Our main objective was to strengthen our total pitching staff," said Harry Dalton, the Orioles' director of player personnel. "We now have a fluid staff with two or three pitchers who can either start or . relieve." Fisher, who appeared in 22 games last season while compiling a 15-7 record with a 2.40 earned run average, could start Eagles and Rams came out victors in a Pony League twin- bill Saturday night at Light Brigade Field.
