The Dodgers are wit'.b a whisker of the National League lead after Koufax' longest pitching ordeal of the season but all he matchless southpaw has to show for it are two more strikeout standards and a no-decision. And Philadelphia's Jim Bunning knows just how Sandy 'eels. Bunning and Koufax gave \yay to relief pitchers after a jrilliant 11-inning duel Wednesday night and the Dodgers immediately pushed over an unearned run in the 12th for a 2-1 victory that stretched their winning string to six and put them only one-halt game behind first- place Pittsburgh in the NL race. The Pirates climbed back into the top spot with a 5-3 victory over San Francisco, dropping the Giants into second place. Koufax, whose arthritic pitching arm became painfully inflamed after his last start — causing speculation that he would miss a starting turn for the first time this year — overpowered the Phillies except for a second-inning Homer by Rich Allen. He yielded only four hits and fanned 16, breaking one of his own records and moving up a peg 1 on the all-time strikeout list. His fourth strikeout was the 2,- 267th of his career, moving him past Lefty Grove into 10th position among the lifetime leaders. His 15th strikeout, in the ninth inning, was his 200th this se» son, marking the sixth straight year he has reached that plateau. But, although Koufax also became the first hurler to pass the 200-inning mark — while lowering his major-league-leading earned run average to 1.65 — he failed to register victory No. 18. Instead, Phi! Regan, who pitched the 12th, gained his eighth victory against a tingle setback. Elsewhere, St. Louis and New, fork continued to roll, the Cardinals downing Atlanta 9-7 fgr " ;heir ninth victory in the last 10 james and the Mets edgirig- iouston 3-2 for a 10-3 mark over" heir last 13.
