The man made the Hal Smith is the Babe Rulh of decision, Em] thai was it." The single came on a ball hit at third baseman Joe Morgan. Stepping back to field the bouncer, Morgan stabbed the bail but fell to the ground. It was scored a base hit. Bob Anderson pitched the last- place Chicago Cubs to an 8-1 victory over Cincinnati in the other National League game. Clemente Blow Scores Three Pittsburgh scored two in the third at Loh Angeles on Roberto Clemente's single with th« bases loaded. SmiLH hit No. S in the fourth and No. 9 in the seventh, both off Johnny Podres. Another big crowd of 11,193 saw the series finale. A total of 153,932 fans saw the three games, boosting the Dodgers' home attendance to 1,433,729 for 46 home dates. It was Law's third victory over the Dodgers and his third complete game against them in three starts. The right-hander had gone the route six straight times at the Coliseum since he was knocked ou May 1, 1958. The Cardinals, blanked Wudnes- official scorer's call on the single day night by Warren Spahn, were that robbed Roberts of his first held to one hit in the first five the Los Angeles Coliseum. The Pitlsburgh catcher plays scrceno with the man who invented the game. Smith hit two more over the screen Thursday night in Pittsburgh's 4-1 victory over the Dodgers. The pair ran his season total to nine. Six of them have been hit at the Coliseum, four in the last two days. As a result of Smith's home runs and a five-hit pitching job by Vern Law, who won his 12th, the Pirates again lead Milwaukee by 114 games. Cards Give Bucs Help St. Louis gave the Bucs a helping hand in an afternoon gome at Milwaukee whe»c they broke the Braves' sevan-game winning streak 9-4. A six-run rally in the sixth inning helped Larry Jackson win his 12th. ._ Philadelphia's threw a one-hitter, blanking San Francisco 3-0. The only hit was an infield single by Felipe Alou with two out in the fifth. Mgr. Gene Mauch disputed the Robin Roberts no-hitter. Roberts took the ruling by scorer Jim McGee philosophically. "You don't know, you don't know," said Roberts, shaking his head. "If they didn't give the boy B hit on that one, they might have innings, but they rose lip and chased Carl Willey in the big sixth. Bill While's two-nm double with the bases loaded opened the gates. Jackson needed help from Lindy McDaniel when the Braves threatened in the seventh. ?iaers Claw Senators Score 9-5 Victory By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The first showdown series of the year opens tonight at Yankee Stadium where the New York Yankees, nursing a one-game lead, take on the second place Chicago White Sox in the first of four games. It will be White Sox speed and sound pitching against the Yanks' home-run power and wobbly pitching in the series that overshadows other doings in the American League. They will play one game tonight, Saturday afternoon, and two Sunday. The Yanks hold a 7-4 season edge winning the last seven from the Sox. Tigers Climb Into Fifth Most of the league spent Thursday on the road, but Detroit managed to climb into fifth-place tie with Washington by beating the Senators 9-5 in the only game! played. Frank Lar;-, helped by Dave Sisler, managed to hold enough of an early 7-0 lead to offset Washington's late home run power. Jim Lemon hit his 22nd and 23rd and Harmon Killebrew his eighth, but the Senalors never could catch the Tigers. Rocky Colavito's 20th homer with Iwo on in the fifth inning helped build up Lsry's lead. For the opener at Pankee stadium, Mgr. Casey Stengel- ha? Bob Turley, 6-1, ready to oppose Early Wynn, 40, at 5-7. Saturday's pitchers probably will be Whitey Ford, 6-5, for the Yanks and either Herb Score 2-3, or Bob Shaw, g-S, for the Sox. In the Sunday dnubteheader, Stengel has Eli Grba, 1-0, and Jim Coates, 9-1, or Bobby Srranlz, 1-2, to oppose Billy Pierce 8-5 and either Score or Shaw whoever does not work Saturday.

ED 2-2653 Grwnville, Miss. Roberts Pitches One Hitler With Phils 3-0 Winner SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - In a brilliant career dating back to 1918, Robin Roberts has appeared in 489 baseball gomes for the Philadelphia Phillies. He has won 227. Never did he come closer to a no-hit, no-run performance than he did Thursday. Manager Gene Mauch contended he should have had one. So did third baseman Joe Morgan who figured in the controversial infield single by Felipe Alou in the fifth inning -- the only hit as Roberts aikl the Phillies won 3-0. With two out in the fifth, Alou hit a sharp bouncer to Morgan. The third baseman stepped back, stabbed the ball but fell. Official scorer James M. McGee ruled it a hit. Mauch Comments "The rules say the first hit of a game has got to be legitimate, and it was not." declared Mauch. "'Iliat was as legitimate a no- hitter as has ever been pitched." Said an unhappy Morgan, "They should have flashed the error sign right away. I think they! could have given me an error." Roberts didn't appear perturbed. "You know," he said, "you know if they didn't give that boy a hit on that one, they might get another. "This is as dose as I've ever come. Someday I might pitch one."
