Willie Sets Tempo in 6 to 5 Victory Mays, National League Frustrate AL Again game was when Mauch put Slays in the leadoff spot. Willie set the tempo with his leadoff homer. Then when they tied it up, it was up to Willie to get the tie-breaking run and he did." For two innings, it looked like a breeze for the National League. Taking their cue from Mays, Milwaukee's Joe Torre and Pittsburgh's Willie Stargell followed with homers, each with a man aboard, and before the Americans had their first hit, the Nationals had a 5-0 lead. "I thought for awhile we were going to win 15-0," said Mauch.

Press box statisticians' were walks developed into the winning run. That came about in the seventh inning when he coaxed a pass off Cleveland left-hander Sam McDowell, raced to third on Hank Aaron's single, remained there while Roberto Cle-mente grounded into a force play and ambled home on Ron Santo's crazily bouncing single over second base. "Mays was the difference," said Bobby Bragan, Milwaukee manager who acted as a coach under Manager Gene Mauch of Philadelphia. "The turning point of the nesota strong boy whose fifth-inning two-run homer had tied the score 5-5. As he has done in so many previous All-Star Games, Willie Mays took the spotlight.

The San Francisco wonder boy, unmindful of a painful bruise on his right hip a souvenir of a home plate collision at Philadelphia Saturday night opened the game with a home run. It was hit off starter Milt Pappas, Baltimore Oriole righthander. Willie didn't get any more hits in his leadoff role, but he walked twice and one of those thumbing through the books for-the record lop-sided score which turned out to be the Americans' 12-0 victory in 1946. In the meantime, the Americans, led by Al Lopez of the Chicago White Sox, could do little with Juan Marichal, the National League starter. The 26-year-old San Francisco right-hander faced only nine men in his three innings.

He gave up a single to Vic Davalillo of Cleveland, but the center fielder was erased on a double play. It was not until the fourth in-' ning, with Jim Maloney of the Cincinnati Reds on the pitching after the Americans had made up a five-run deficit, they called on World Series hero Bob Gibson. The St. Louis righthander stopped the Americans in their tracks. With the Nationals ahead again 6-5, Gibson came in to pitch the last two innings.

After giving up a leadoff double to Tony Oliva in the. ninth, raising the hopes of the 46,706 American League partisans, Gibson quickly dashed them by setting down the next three hitters, two on strikeouts. The crusher was his whiffing of Harmon Killebrew, the Min defeat for the Americans in All-Star and World Series competition. The National League, which once wanted to call the whole thing off when it found itself trailing 12 games to 4, has taken a lead for the first time since the competition began in 1933. The victory, their seventh in the last eight decisions, has given the Nationals an over-all 18-17 lead.

Since he took office as president in 1959, his American League has won only two of 11 All-Star Games while tying one. In the same span, the league has lost four of six World Series. Genial Joe squirmed in the heat Tuesday while the National League once again turned back his American All-Stars 6-5, despite blowing a 5-0 lead.
