000 Don Is Five and By HAL BOCK Associated Press Sports Write* Don Drysdale, half a Si-million holdout in the spring, finally has become a five-arid-teri pitcher. The tall Los Angeles right- hander won his first game in a month and pulled his season's record to 5-10 Wednesday night when the Dodgers beat Cincinnati 9-5. I Regan hung on to save It. The victory ended a six-game osing streak for Drysdale, who inisbed with 23 victories last •ear. And if you think he's been n a pitching slump, his two hits lifted his baiting average to 234. He hit .300 in 1965. Both the tilird-place Dodgers and second-place Pittsburgh licked up ground on National ,eague-leading San Francisco. But his bat played a bigger role than his arm.: : Drysdale smacked a pair ; of singles in an eight-mn Dodger third-inning outburst that should jiave made his first victory eince May 30 a breeze. . . . It was more like a hurricane for the veteran pitcher. Drysdale lasted until the seventh inning, giving up three runs on nine hits before finally being relieved by Phil.

It will give me an excuse to come back next year." Mantle, whose hitting feats rank second only to his medical history, actually considered retirement after the 1965 season. But the Yankees talked him into undergoing a shoulder operation and giving it at least one more try before finishing a major j league career that now spans 16 years.
