ROLF FOR TWINS' COMIC Boswell Slays 'Em "•, By DICK COUCH I Associated Press Sport* Writer - Dave Boswell'a barnyard ,'impressions Still break up his -teammates, but the Minnesota •twins' funny man is dead seri- -'ous about his new act — impersonating Sandy Koufax. " Boswell fired a four-hitter ••against Boston Wednesday night '"!for his seventh straight victory and added 10 strikeouts to his •^American League lead as the .•Twins battered the Red Sox 7-2. '-• The 21-year-old pitching prOd- ','iigy has been the AL's answer 'to KOufax, Los Angeles' fabu- "lous left-hander, over the past '.two months - and he's actually »been a couple of steps ahead of ! ;th« Dodger ace in recent weeks. '* Before June 1, however, Bos.'well's major contributions to •the Twins were his hilarious •imitations of the animal and bird kingdoms. "Come on, Bos-well, feed the chickens for us," teammate would command, and the young right-hander would protest in vain before 'dusting off his chicken-feeding routine. '.-, ' ; * * * His bird-calls were a big hit, too, and his squeaking barn door always was in demand, but the strapping Baltimore native , was a troubled pitcher. He was the clubhouse comedian — and his won-lost record was 0-4. . "I don't want that goofy reputation," he said. "I'm going to * be serious this year." Then he went out and proved It. Since June 1 he has won 11 of 12 decisions. Koufax, 9-1 on June 1, has been j-4 since then. " Boswell has won his last six starts; Koufax has won two of . his last six. Sandy'* earned run average of 1.64 is far superior to Bos, well's 3.00 mark, but the Minnesota fireballer will take the victories my way h« can get them. "I want to win," he says. "I don't care if it's 9-8, 8-6 or 1-0." Boswell's 10 strikeouts against the Red Sox Increased his season figure to 158. Koufax, with 210 strikeouts, is the only pitcher in the majors ahead of him. * * * Elsewhere, Wednesday night, the NOT York YankNi mM a five-gam* tailspln by trimtog California W on M«l Settlemyre's two-hitter; the Cleveland Indians overcame five Bal'(tow* how* tor a 94 victory EX'CHICKASAW - Gorn- mander J. o, (Bo) Coppedge has been ordered to step aboard the USS Triton in Norfolk, Va,, Friday afternoon for ceremonies giving him cOrnmand Of SU^arine Division Sixty-Two, the comman-> der was a tackl* at Blythe- vill* High in 1940 when the Chickasaws w6n the stat* football championship.
