J4 THE CONSTITUTION, Friday, August 23, 1 963 Fort Hood Trips Bliss In 17 -Inning Marathon for Fourth Army Title By HERB JACOBS Stall Sports Writer F ORT Hood's Tankers own the Fourth Army baseball championship again this year, but it is doubtful than they could have \vorked any Iwdcr for their pennant. The Tankers pushed across a run in the last, of the 17th inning to edge Fort Bliss, S-5, in a marathon -1^-hour battle al Bulner Field. The gruelling struggle ended at 1:30 this morning. Fort Hood scnr the tourney into the sudden-death same by whipping Bliss. 8-1. in the opener. Manager Jim Francis raced home from third on a sacrifice fly by catcher'Joe Nosari to end the spirited struggle. Francis had walked. moved to second on another walk and stole third to set up the winner. s high fly to loft was easily hnnrtled by Bliss 1 Lurry Slubbe, but Fronds scooted across the plate well in Iront ot Stubbe's hurried throw. The victory went to smooth southpaw Frank Bresland, who hurled two innings of relief for the Tankers. Big Harry Stigelman, Hood's starter, pitched 15 masterful innings before he was removed. Stigelman was hit hard in the early innings, but he allowed the Falcons just three base runners after the ninth inning. He gave up 11 hits during his long stint and struck out '12. He did not walk a man. The loss went to Vince Cancie.ine, the third Bliss hurlor. He came on in the 17th and goi hard-hitting Roger Robinson to pop up before walking Francis and Dick Hampton. When Francis stole third, Nosari delivered his game-winning sacrifice fly. Mike DaKon started for Bliss wid gave up five runs -- two unearned -- In seven Inning. Elmer Rod pitched from the eighth through the 16th and checked Hood with flve hits. Bliss sent the game into overtime with a pair of runs In the ninth Inning. Stubbe opened the bid by reaching first on an error and he scored on a sizzling double by Moore, John Parilli sacrificed Moore TO third, and the big third sacker slid across the plate safely when Chris Delisio laid down a two-strike, suicide bunt. The Falcons drew first blood in the battle, moving to a 1-0 lead in the first inning. Back-to-back doubles by Siubbe and Moore did me damage. Hood took the lead in the third. Mike Michaels led off with a double, moved to third on a wild pitch and scored on a long fly by Francis. Francis' ball was dropped and he ended up at second. A single by Hampton got Francis home, Hood made It 3-1 in the fourth when John Rogoll doubled and raced home on n single by Michaels, rt wns 5-1 after five w h e n Hwmpton boomed a home run over the Inft Held wall, Ji'warl and Stlgelmnn singled and Bliss booted a (^rounder. The Falcons cut the lead to 5-3 in the sixth. Joe Horencewich led off with a single and he rode home on a long homer by Moore. Bliss had another chance in i-he seventh when Delisio singled. But Recoil made an outstanding running catch of John Regan's screaming lienr :o right-center, then threw to first in time to double Delisio. Hood had too many chances to mention, leaving 22 men stranded. They left the bases loaded in the 13lh and 15th innings and saw two mpn left on five other occasions. Bliss had just five men left on base, but three double plays helped the Fort Hood cause. In the first came. Fort Hood struck late to bang out the 8-1 verdict. A single hy Robinson, a double by Franck and an error madB It 2-0 in th" fifth, while two walks, an error and RogoU'.i theft of home uppod the count to 3-0 In the sixth. Hampton scored on a single by Jack Kyle tor the fourth run in the FCventh, then Hood pul it away with four more in the eighth Regoli. who had six hits during the evening, led ofl with a home run down Ihc le.'l field line. Michaels and Robinson singled, then Francis reached safely on an error, with Michaels scoring. Robinson and Francis both came in on errors. Bliss' lone tally crossed in the sixth on a double by Srubbo -and a single by Moore. The Falcons saw an excellent opportunity go down ihe drain in tho second because of a judgment cull hy home plate umpire Charles McDougal of Fort Polk. With no one out and two men on. Jerry Koosman dropped a sacrifice bunt down the third base line Hood thirdsackor Bob Buckner fielded the ball, but had no play. However. McDouga] and thlrt! hnyp utnp PR!

In other attractions the Southern Division's last- place team, Denver, topped first place Oklahoma City 4-2 and San Diego humbled the National League's Craciinati 6-2. Salt Lake and Dallas-Fort Worth paraded four pitchers apiece before only 772 fans. Finally, Billy Cowan decided no one else was i going to show up and belted R i two-run homer to end it after, 1C ' innings and four hours and '47 minutes. John Wojick cracked a home run and a double to pace Portland in the opener. But the blasts echoed in near-empty stands. Only 825 ol the laithful were on hand. A throwing error by outfielder Stan Johnson gave the Beavers their win in the nightcap by letting Bill Meyer race home on Jim Hughes' double. Corky Withrow doubled twice to help Denver, stage a .comeback alter the S9ers managed a 'one-run lead in the third.

Hc also played first base as few players have done. The latter was his undoing. Stuart, a large right-handed hitting first baseman for the Boston Red Sox, comes close to qualifying in each respect, He's hitting the ball, at least so far as power is concerned, better than any other player in the American league. The Red Sox love to talk about that. They don't particularly care to talk about his fielding. Nor does Stuart. So perhaps we shouldn't, Except to quote Red Sox Manager Johnny Pesky: "After all, Dick is 6-3 and weighs close to 220 pounds." Which may explain his fielding, or something. Hfts S3 Homers The figures explain his hitting. The Red Sox belter, who once hit 66 homers In the minors, drove in two runs on a couple of singles and a homer in Boslon's 11-2 romp over Chicago Thursday, The performance increased his American League leads to 33 home runs and 93 runs batted in. Stuart'? performance and a grand-slam homer by Ihe Red Sox' Ed Bressoud prevented the second place White Sox from closing up any on the league leading Yankees, who look n 7-4 licking from Cleveland despite a grand slam homer by John Blanchard. Kansas City heat Washington 6-2 and Baltimore whipped the Los Angeles Angel? 5-1 in the only other games played. IJonurn Slur* Bonura hit 27 homers and drove in 110 runs when he broke in with Ihe White Sox in 1936, and in the four years hc played wiih them averaged ',10 home runs and 110 RBI. He v.'as sold Ihe season after hc hit a career high of .3-15. and his inability to move in the field was Ihe big reason. Hc was finished at the ace ol 32 after seven years in the majors, in which lie compiled a lifetime nv- ' crace of .307. Stuart's career has been remarkably similar. Though he has never hit for a high average, hc has Ions been highly regarded as a right-handed power hitter. "The Pittsburgh club couldn'l have made me happier it Ihcy'd doubled my salary." Stuart chortled when the Pira'.cs traded him away from spacious Forlx?s Field to the Red Sox' chummy Fenway Park last wimer. He took one look at the close left field wn.ll and announced: Morphcad Wln« "With any kind of breaks, especially if I hit on the road. I should be among the league leaders in home runs nnd RBI." Hc singled in Boslon's three-run second inning and hit his 33rd homcr In the next inning, provid- Boros Takes Familiar Spot Moose Tied For Classic By JOE MOOSHIL Associated Press Sporls Writer AKRON, Ohio (AP) -- Julius Boros.

All three shot three-under-par 67s in the opening round Thursday while the pre-tournament favorites, Arnold Palmer and Jack Nlcklaus, could do no better than match par.

The next may be his successor on Ihe New York Yankees, Elston Howard. Now 34 and in his ninth year in the bis leagues, the 205-pcund workhorse feels he is noaring his prime both as a hitter and catcher. He has powerful credentials. Only Minnesota's Earl Battey disputes his claim as the league's No. 1 defensive catcher but none can challenge him at ihe plale, Hitling just a dozen points below .300, Hbward lias boon ihe Yankees' most authoritative swatter and run producer this year.

"But I won't be trying for them. I - j u s t swing for base hits. ·It would be. 'nice to break the home run record but I'd rather hit ,300-and drive in 100 runs."
