PAGE 4 TIPTON DAILY TRIBUNE Thursday, October 1,1964 By 'FRED DOWN UP I Sports Writer The biggest blow in the most fantastic National League pennant race of all time may have been a 20-foot single. ' It was a trickling' bunt off the bat of 20-year-old rookie catcher Jerry May and when it stayed fair it brought home the run that gave the Pitttsburgh Pirates a 1-0, i6-inning Wednesday night victory over the Cincinnati Reds and boosted the St Louis Cardinals into sole possession of the lead. Earlier, the Cardinals continued their sensational drive toward their first flag since 1946 with an 8-5 victory that extended the forlon Philadelphia Phillies' losin gstreak to 10 games. ' As a result, the Cardinals and Reds go; into their final three games Of the season with the ', Redbirds enjoying a one- game lead and the advantage of playing out their season against the last-place New York Mets. The Reds have one game left 'with the Pirates and two with the Phillies. The Phillies, who; once owned that fat 616- game lead, now can do no better than tie for the flag. , Strikeout Record Set May's winning bunt came after Donn Clendenon opened the 16th I inning with a double and moved to third on Bill Mazeroski's sacrifice. It broke up a four-hour and 14-minute struggle in which a record 36 batters struck out. Pitttsburgh starter Bob Veale fanned 16 in 12.1-3 Innings and Cincinnati starter Jim Maloney struck out 13 in 11 innings. The Reds, who haven't scored in their ijast 33 innings, collected nine Kits but left 18 runners stranded,! including 13 in the last eight innings. They had j he'll occupy an honored place their biggest chance when they in the gallery of New York filled the bases with one out in I Yankee pennant heroes, the 13th but Al McBean relieved | Acquired from- the Cleveland Veale and retired the side. , Curt Simmons, who found a, new career "with the ( Cardinals after being cut loose by the Phillies in." I960, went eight innings for his 18th win of the season. The one-time ' $65,000 Philadelphia bonus left-hander has beaten his former teammates 16 times in 18 decisions as a Cardinal. The Cardinals • blitzed Jim (perfect game) Bunning in 3 1-3 innings and ran up an 8-0 lead in four frames. Key blows for the Cardinals .were a two-run homer by Tim McCarver, two doubles by Bill White and a double by Curt Flod. Fade? Quickly Simmons bad a no-hitter un-Richie Allen singled with two out in the seventh, then faded fast as the '• Cardinals .brought in Ron Taylor and then Gordon Richardson to hold off the late Philadelphia rallies. The San Francisco Giants nipped the Houston Colts 2-1, the Los Angeles ; Dodgers downed the. Chicago j Cubs 2-0 and the Milwaukee Braves tripped the New York Mets 6-5 in 12 innings in other NL action. Third-baseman Eddie Kasko's error on Jim Davenport's gounder enabled Tom'Haller to score the winning run for the Giants in the 11th inning and gave Jim Duffalo his fifth win; rookie John Purdon pitched a two-hitter fo rthe Dodgers to best Cub 23-game winner Larry Jackson and Dennis Menke led Minnesota drubbed Kansas City 6-1. / . i • off the'12th inning j with a homer that- gave rookie Clay Carroll the victory ! for the Brave's. Pedro Ramos isn't eligible to pitch in the World Series but Indians oh Sept. 6, th 29-year- old Cuban.has given .the Yankees the necessary-late-inning bullpen strength to move to the threshhoid of their fifth straight American League pennant and first under freshman .Manager Yogi Berra. \ • Ramos—who" joins a list .of late-season • acquisitions who helped the Yankees to pennants which also includes Johnny Mize, - Johnny Sain, Tom (Ferrick and Enos Slaughter to name only a few—has been credited with one victory and' seven saves" in 11 appearances. Ramos did his late-inning, act twice. Wednesday night when the Yankees cut their magic pennant-clinching number to two by defeating thej Detroit Tigers 7-6 and 11-8. They thus gained ground on both the idle Chicago White Sox and Baltimore Orioles, who split their twi-night doubleheader with the Washington Senators. Can' Clinch Pennant The Yankees can clinch the pennant outright today by sweeping another doubleheader from the Tigers. Ramos shut out the Tigers ^for the last two innings of the first game to preserve aRlph Terry's seventh- win and then retired Gates Brown with two on and two out in the ninth inning of the second game to save Jim Boiiton's 18th triumph. Mickey Mantle and Joe Pepitone homered and Bobby Richardson had a two-run single to lead the Yankees' eight-hit attack in the opener.

LOUIS (UPI) — Southpaw Curt Simmons wanted it known today that he was- t mad anymore at his old Philadelphia club for dropping him like a hot potato some seasons back.' The 35-year-old Simmons all but eliminated the Phillies from the National League pennant hase with . an 8-5 victory Wednesday'night, his fourth win against the Phillies this season. Simmons was a Philadelphia castoff when the St. Louis Cardinals picked him up- "for. a song." I Simmons didn't look at his latest win against Philadelphia as "revenge." "Sure.'l wanted to- beat the. Phillies, but no more than I want to neat Cincinnati or anybody else," Simmons said in the clubhouse after he annexed the Cardinals eighth consecutive victory and inflicted the tenth defeat in a row on • his former mates. When the clubhouse questioning led to the old story of Simmons being cast adrift by the Phillies, Simmons ' said, "look, I said. "I that story's five years old ... I again. they let me go and I was mad at the time, but that was five years ago.". Simmons, who didn't allow a hit in 7 2-3 innings, said, "one thing about being through and coming back, though, it makes a guy appreciate it more." Although the Cardinals swept the three-game Philadelphia series, which'dropped the PMllies to third place, Keane said, '"the Phillies , can bounce back against Cincinnati." '"They're a good club"... a proud club ... they battled us all the way," Keane said. Philadelphia winds up its season against Cincinnati, and Philli'e Manager Gene Mauch said, "we'll give them (the Reds) our best bolt just as we always do .. if we can help ourselves, then we'll help the. Cardinals." Among the jubilant Cardinals in the clubhouse was Vice President Stan Musial, w h o was asked whether he would like to be in uniform for the pennant drive.
