Giants/ Colt .45s Boast Two-game Winning Streaks SIDELINE By DON TERBUSH DAY IN SUN . . . Team managers in any school level sport are generally sincere, hard working individuals content to perform their tasks in relative obscurity. On occasion, however, they get an opportunity to emerge from the shadows to the glare of the spotlight. When it happens it is worthy of comment, we believe. Such is the case of one Steven Whitelock, ninth grade manager of the Eureka Junior High baseball team. Referred to by his friends as "Gig", young Whitelock got his glory moments in a sunny day doubleheader with the Hoopa Junior Varsity. Catcher Bob Hodgson was sidelined by illness. Both the second and third teams were away on another diamond playing George C. Jacobs Junior High. As a result, Coach Ed Kennedy was left with just nine players. In the seventh inning of the first game with the local club enjoying a substantial lead, Kennedy removed an outfielder from the lineup so that he could start \varming up for pitching duties in the second contest. Whitelock, street shoes and all, was drafted to play the outfield. He was, perhaps a bit nervous, but overjoyed with the opportunity. Then in the second inning of the nightcap, infielder-pitcher Jim Guy fractured an ankle sliding into home plate. Again "Gig" got the call and again he responded gratefully. When he singled with mates on base, the elated Whitelock could hardly contain his joy. He jumped up and down on first base in sheer glee. And then Bob Finnegan smacked an extra base blow. Even the Hoopa players spurred "Gig" on to second with shouts of encouragement as the faster and slimmer Finnegan nearly ran up his back. And, as it should, the best came last. . As the exuberant and twice triumphant Eureka team left the field and headed toward the exit, While- lock lagged behind to gather up and transport the equipment as he had done numerous times before. But this time Coach Kennedy called out: "You go on ahead with the other players, Steve. I'll take care of the equipment." It was a sunny day, indeed. "# £ BATTIN 1 THE BREEZE . . .

Who knows? Mays Homers, O'Dell Hurls Four-Hiffer At Candlestick Pdrk By FRED DOWN UPI Sports Writer Casey Stengel is 0-1 and the Houston Colt .45s are 2-0 but baseball purists viewing [be National League needn't despair because Stan Mnsial is 3-for-3. The Colt .45s, surprise team ol the opening hours of the NL's first 162-game schedule, made i two victories in a row Wcdnesdaj night with a 2-0 decision over the Chicago Cubs. H o u s t o n thus shares first place for a secont straight day -- a tall talc even for Texas folk. It was a disappointing night [or 71-year old Stengel and his infanl New York Mets, however, as the St. Louis Cardinals pounded onl an 11-4 triumph featured by Musial's perfect night and achievement of another league mark. Stan the Man had two singles and a double in three tries and the run he scored enabled him to tie Mel Ott's record of 1,859 runs scored in the NL. Stengel, managing his first game m the NL since 1943 when he piloted Boston, saw his Mets commit three errors and waste homers by Gil Hodges and Charlie Neal. Hodges' homer lifted his lifetime total to 302, edging him past Joe DiMaggio td No. 11 on the all-time, list. Giants Defeat Braves The San Francisco Giants defeated the Milwaukee Braves. 3-1. and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Cincinnati Reds, 6-2, in other NL games while the Minnesota Twins shut out the Kansas City A's, 8-0, and the Boston Red Sox scored a 4-0 12-inning triumph over the Cleveland Indians in American League games. Ha! Smith's two-run single in the first inning produced all the Colt .45s' runs and Woodeshick limited the Cubs to eight hits un- he tired in the ninth. Then Dick Farrell came in to pitch out two-on, nonc-out jam and clinch the win. Glen Hobble was the loser.

Sandy Koufax pitched a one hitter for eight innings before po' yielding three hits and two Cincinnati runs in the ninth. A triple by Maury Wills. Jim Gilliam's homer and a double by Duke Snider were the big blows of a four-run third-inning rally thai won the game for the Dodgers. Brilliant Pitching The brilliant pitching of Bill Monbouquette and Camilo Pascual featured the two games in the AL. Monbooquette allowed only four hits and three walks while striking out five Indians in a 12-inning duel with Cleveland rookie Ron Taylor. Carl Yastrzemski triplec to open the bottom of the 12th and the next two batters were purposely walked. Then Carroll Hardy broke it up with a grant ilam homer -- his third hit of the game. Pasucual, who pitched eight shut outs in 1961, hurled a four-hitter and struck out seven behind a 10- hit Twin attack that included homers by Bob Allison, Earl Battey and Dick Rollins.
