Ump Finally Puts Cepeda Out Card on 11x20 Tear By HAL BOCK Associated Press Sports Writer When Orlando Cepeda is in a hitting mood, only the umpires can get him out. The Cincinnati Reds weren't having much luck with the big St. Louis slugger Friday night until Umpire John Kibler interceded in the seventh inning of the Cardinals' 9-2 victory. Cepeda was called out on a close play at first base and when he argued over the call, Kibler tossed him out of the ball game. By then, the damage was done. Cepeda had whacked his 12th and 13th homers of the season and lifted his batting average to .324, fourth best in the National League. The Cardinal first baseman, who came from San Francisco in the trade for Ray Sadecki, is on an ll-for-20 tear at the plate and seems completely recovered from the eye injury which sidelined him for two weeks last month. Cepeda was struck by a batting practice line drive June 10. He returned to the line-up June 24, and in the three weeks since then he's had 25 hits in 73 at COURIER NEWS SATURDAY, JULY 16, 196« FAG* arx iniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiaiiiiiiiiiiioiiiinmmiinniiiiiini QUEEN'S DREAM COMES TRUi Likes Hurling, But... CINCINNATI (AP) — Young Mel Queen says his chance to pitch was an outfielder's dream come true — and the former major league hurler's son made the most of his opportunity. The 24-year-old right-hander "pitched a perfect inning of relief Friday night as the St. Louis Cardinals routed Cincinnati, 9-2, and the Reds' fans cheered every pitch he threw — less than a dozen in all. Almost any outfielder at times would like to be a pitcher, especially when he's not hitting," Queen said later. "And I suppose a pitcher would feel he'd like to be an outfielder .when he gets walloped. 'So far I like pitching, but then there's the question of how a fellow would feel with guys on base and then somebody would knock the ball out of the park," he added. The Cardinals clouted the first four Cincinnati pitchers for a total of 15 hits and then interim manager Dave Bristol — who ias promised some changes — sent in Queen who had just reported back to duty after two weeks on the sick list. Charley Smith hit a little tap near the plate and was thrown out. Dal Maxvill and Julian Javier both struck out to end iha ninth. "We might have found something," said Bristol, -who took over the team Thursday after Don HeKner was fired. "It's time to get him out there and see what he'll do." One of the reasons Queen, son of another Mel Queen who pitched in the 1940s and 1950s, haS been playing outfield is because of his strong throwing arm. bats — a .342 pace. In addition to costing the Reds he ball game, Cepeda cost Cincinnati pitcher Sammy Ellis ?50. After Cepeda's second homer n the fifth inning, Ellis decked Mike Shannon with a pitch. Plate Umpire Paul Pryor warned Ellis about the duster, and that calls for an automatic 50 fine. * * * Elsewhere in the National League, ex-Met Dick Stuart beat his former teammates with a pinch single in the llth inning as Los Angeles edged New York -3, Chicago shaded Pittsburgh 5-4 and San Francisco downed 'hiladelphia 8-1 behind Juan Marichal. Houston and Atlanta were rained out. Curt Flood led a 15-hit Cardinal attack with four safeties as he St. Louis Cardinals battered five Cincinnati pitchers. Things got So desperate for the Red's ritching staff that new Manager )ave Bristol brought in Mel Queen, an outfielder, to work he ninth inning. Queen had more success than lis predecessors, setting the Cardinals down in order. Stuart, who was released by he Mets last month, beat his old team with a soft single to center, scoring Ron Fairly from bird. Fairly who had walked, went to third on Jim Lefebvre's double. John Roseboro smashed a wo-run homer for th« Dodgers. * * * Robin Roberts, making his first start for Chicago, dropped the Pirates into second place by scattering eight hits.

Not Earl Wilson. Six hurlers performed for the Detroit Tigers Friday during their 8-5 victory over Baltimore, but only five were to be found in their normal environs in the center of the diamond. The sixth, Wilson, made his contribution at the plate with a pinch-hit, three-run, 13th-in- ning, two-out (that about covers it) home run. Bill Monbouquette, who worked the four final innings perfectly, got the victory, while Stu Miller, who was the last of the mere three pitchers Baltimore used, took the loss.
