Just before the All-Star break, the Pirate lend measured 5'^ games. The wise men along Broadway had tabbed the Dues as 1 to 4 favorites to win the pennant. Dravcs Close Gap Milwaukee closed the gap Sun- port of a 12-hit attack Including home runs by Johnny Logan and Joe Adcock as the veteran won his IHh. Buhl tied up with rookie Jim Brewer, up from Houston, in a real pitching duel until Mel Roach doubled with two out in the ninth Inning of the second game. Logan was given an intenlional pass and Al Spangler, running for Roach, stole third. Dark the laced a single to left for the run It was Buhl's 10th victory. Antonelll Knocked Out The Giants were rolling with a 6-0 lead on homers by Willie Mays and Bob Schmidt when day by whipping Chicago tsvice 7-:blister developed on Billy O'Dell's 5 and 1-0 behind a couple of familiar names,' Warren Spahn and Dob Buhl. The Pirates trailing G-0, scared San Francisco with three runs in the ninth and had Manager Tom Shechan digging deep into his bullpen for three pitchers before the Giants finally nailed down a 6-3 victory l,os Angeles, blazing hot with 29 consecutive innings of shutout p;iching--27.against, the Phillies- blanked the Phils again 90. Stan Williams, the big man of the Dodger staff, hit a two-run homei during an eight-run spurt in the third inning and then managed to pitch a KKrlt shutout. St. Louis came up with two in the ninth with the help of an error by Roy McMillan and a double by Ml White and nipped Cincinnati 6-5.

Bob Gibson was the winner on relief and Hook was Jay Hebert Captures PGA Golf Laurels AKRON, Ohio (AP)-Jay Hebert finally got even with his kid brother. The ex-marine, wounded at Two Jima stormed out of a four-way crush Sunday to win the 42nd Professional Golfers' Assn. championship by a stroke, leaving 1947 champion Jim Ferrier, three-time champion Sam Snead, and third- round leader Doug Sanders In his wake. Should Slop Needling That should put a stop to the "needling" Jay, 37, has been getting down around his bayou home in Lafayette, La., ever since his brother, Lionel, 32, won the same title three years ago. The Hebert boys, on the tour only fivo years, are brother act to grab Pale Hose Divide With N. Y. Yankees By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS iror of a major league record by Eli Grba is a name not calculated to strike terror into the hearts of American League hitters. Yet this 25-year-old right- hander, recalled from the Richmond farm in. early June has saved the New York Yankees at a crucial stage. The Yanks were moaning low Sunday after losing the first game of a 'doubleheader to Chicago 6-3. Tlie White Sox came into town In second place and proceeded to win three, straight from New York. One more defeat and the proud I mnking five in the seventh inning while losing the first game to Kansas City 6-3. The Senators snapped back 10-2 behind Camilo Pascual. The Yankee-White Sox double Yanks would have been three games back. Desperate for pitching afler the failures of Bob Turley, Whitey Ford and Jim Coates, the Yankees called on Grba. He came through with the first complete game of his brief major league career and his second victory over the White Sox £-2. As a result the White Sox' lead was cut to one game. Grba has a total of four victories over two seasons in the majors and three of them have been at the expense of Chicago. Orioles Grab Third Baltimore sneaked into third place, three games back, by edging Detroit 2-t in 11 innings on Jackie Brandt's fourth hit of the day. Boston dropped Cleveland into fourth place by taking two from the Indians who spent most of the day jawing with the umpires. The scores were 1(H and 7-j. Washington came within one er- dr'ow the season's largest Yankee Stadium crowd, 60,002. The fans saw Billy Pierce whip the Yanks in Ihc first, with late inning relief help from Turk Lown and Frank .umann as the Sox pcxmdetl Yank pitching for 12 hits including Roy Sievers' 16th homer. Grba went an the way in the second game while New York ruined Herb Score's comeback hopes by knocking him out in Ihi fourth inning. Mickey Mantle hit his 24(h homer off Russ Kemmei er in the fifth. Bill Monbouquctte and Mike Fornielcs, working in relief of Frank Sullivan were the Boston winners. Ted Williams beat out a bunt. Jimmy Piersall, fined $100 and called on the carpet for Saturday's argument, hid behind the flag-pole in center field during one of the many arguments between Indians and umps. Gary Bell and Jack Harshman were the Cleveand losers. Brandt's game-winning hit gave Baltimore third place. Chuck Estrada turned in a five-hitler against the Tigers for his 10th victory. In that wild inning at Washington, shortstop Jose Valdivielso made three errors. Second baseman Bill Gardner and right fielder Dan Dobbek each made one. the only big-time title since the Smith brothers, Alex and Willie, did it in the National Open around the turn of the century. Both the Louisianians hit the heights on Ohio courses. Lionel won at Dayton's Miami Valley layout, in 1857, the last time the feature was at match play. Jay did it on Firestone Country Club's 7,165-yard "monster" over which par was bettered only 13 times in four days. Hebert wound up with a par 70 and a 72-hole 281, one over par, with birdies on two of the last four holes. Ferrier, the ex-Australian with the dip in his swing, was second at 282, and Snead and Sanders deadlocked at 283. Palmer Ties For Seventh Arnold Palmer, famed for his finishes in winning the Masters and Open crowns this year, couldn't make up a stroke on the final 18 with a par 70 and wound up tied for seventh with ex-champion Doug Ford at 2S C . Snead, who has "blown" eral big championships with shaky Beavers. Hegwood pitched finishes, did it again. With two win for the Bears. .... two holes '.o play he held a stroke lead in a four-way fight for the finish. But he bogied the last two to lose three strokes to Hebert.
