' Rox, Chiefs in Virtual 2nd-Place Tie Grand Forks Moves in For Important Series LOST CONTROL Don Freeland, Torrance, Calif.,, race driver, ' lost control in the first turn Sunday as he was trying to qualify for the May 30 500-mile auto race at the Indianapolis Motor ' Speedway. Freeland avoided the wall and came to a stop on ; the grass inside the track. He was unhurt and the car undamaged. ! He did not qualify but has two more days to try next weekend. 1 (AP photo) New faces again appear on the baseball scene here tonight, when the Northern League Rox open their first series with the Grand Forks Chiefs at 7:30. And the series is as important as any early season set can be, in that the Chiefs and Rox are in a virtual deadlock for second place in the standings. (Both lost a little ground when league-leading Aberdeen shut out Win nipeg 2-0 in Tuesday's only action.) Grand Forks again has the leadership of Bob Clear, win-ningest pitcher in the Northern League last season with a 21-6 record. Besides Clear there are only two returnees from a year ago Ron Kent and Ray Saba, both righthanded pitchers. Larry Fidalgo, who caught for the Chiefs in 1959, is back after spending last season with Salt Lake City, Savannah, Ga., and Burlington, Iowa. A playor who already is blossoming as a Northern League star both at bat and in the field is Jose Martinez, Chiefs shortstop. He has hit ll-for-18 in his last four games. His manager has called him "one of the best glove men I've ever seen." Defnesivley, the Chiefs are rated very highly, with a sharp double play combination in Martinez and Felix Santana. On the home front, some of the Rox players had a short workout Tuesday morning at the ball park. Fred Martin, Cubs pitching coach, worked with the mounds-men and those who wanted it had a round of hitting. Martin As State Wins 9th Non-League Game in 10 Starts ; Heurung Blanks Carleton 3-0 By JOE LONG Daily Times Sports Editor With righthander Don Heurung fretting the big out in the clutch, J5t. Cloud State won its ninth non-conference game in 10 tries this season as it humbled Carle- fon 8-0 at Municipal Staduim Juesday afternoon. Heurung. the bespectacled jun lor from Avon, became the first JState moundsman to post a shut-eut this year as he went the route, scattering six hits. Two pitchers shared in the only other whitewash job by Husky pitchers. ; The victory, 12th in 16 games everall this year, came without imueh trouble as Heurung was staked to a 2-0 lead in the first frame. Carleton managed six lits off him, but no more than line in any inning. He left 11 Carls stranded on the basepaths. J The Huskies return to action tore Saturday afternoon in two im o r e nonconference games, gainst MIAC unbeaten leader Augsburg. The doubleheader will start at 12 noon at the stadium. The Huskies managed only seven hits off Carleton's John Cairns, but also waited out eight rases on balls and were aided by three errors. Heurung struck out six and walked four, while Cairns .struck out three to go. along with the eight walks he issued. 7 Gene Philippe and Al Rivard each cracked out two hits for the winners. One of Philippe's was a run-scoring triple in the first Jnning. Rivar' started his first game at first base and came through with two hard-hit singles. . Though the Huskies got seven Jiits, they bunched them in two innings three in the first and CARLETON 0 b r h rbi Lundsten, 2b 4 0 0 0 Beech, M 5 0 0 0 Tig. c 4 0 0 0 fietjeman, lb , 4 0 0 0 .Cameron, cf 3 0 2 0 i Rutherford, rf 4 0 2 0 Sward, 3b 4 0 0 0 Ellis, ss 3 0 0 0 b-Hall 10 10 .Cairns, p 2 0 10 TOTALS 34 0 6 0 ST.

Cairns gave up two runs without a hit in the third frame. In the first inning, Don Car-ruth beat out an infield hit, but was forced at second by Jerry Foltmer. Phillippe's triple plated Foltmer and Rivard's first hit brought Phillippe home. In the third, walks to Foltmer, Rivard, Merlin Soderstrom, and Wayne Fleischer, Plus an error, accounted for a pair of runs. Scoring ended in the fifth with a four-run burst by State. Phillippe and Rivard singled, but the lead runner was forced out at third. Then Fleischer's fly ball to left field was dropped, allow ing one run to come across, and Bill Repulski's screaming line single through the box scored the second. Heurung grounded out, moving runners to second and third and Joe Glatzmaier beat out an infield hit that scored both runners. Carleton, though it left 11 run ners on base, advanced only three as far as third base. W- Sad I i spy expects to remain hce during the current home stand. Manager Joe Macko and family moved into their St. Cloud home during the day. i Winnipeg errors and four-hit pitching by lefty Dave Jones were all the pace-setting Aberdeen Pheasants needed Tuesday night for a 2-0 shutout over the Goldeyes. The Pheasants collected their two unearned runs in the third and sixth innings while Jones was scattering four singles. There were no extra-base blows. Jim Rouse's long fly to right field scored Don Branson from third for the first run. Branson had walked, gone to second on Phil Barth's single and advanced to third when Winnipeg first sacker Marty Beltran bobbled a ground ball. The second Aberdeen run came when Jim Vadas reached first on an error by shortstop Dal Maxvill, stole second, moved to third on Ron O'Shields' single and raced home when Fred Scott was safe on a fielder's choice.

The Giants have been getting along right well without much help from Sanford, but with the 'right handed veteran coming 'through for a six-hit, 2-1 victory over the Chicago Cubs Tuesday Jnight, they now have a three-"ame lead in the National League Trace. I While Sanford was putting away his first complete game and second victory in six starts, the Los Angeles Dodgers skidded from second to fourth with a 5-3 defeat ; by Milwaukee. Pittsburgh jumped Into second by beating St. Louis 2-1, and Cincinnati moved into 1 third with a 4-2 victory at Phila- -delphia. : ,. Sanford (2-3) walked none and tlruck out five. Orlando Cepeda, with three of the Giants' hits off loser Dick DroU 0-U and r liever Don Elston, tied it with a single in the fourth. He singled and scored the winning run on Hobie Landrith's single in the sixth. The Braves beat Dodger southpaw Sandy Koufax (3-2) on a three-rum homer by Frank Boiling that made it 5-0 in the fourth inning. Don Nottebart (2-2) and reliever Moe Drabowsky held the Dodgers to four hits. A sixth-inning home run by Dick Stuart broke a 1-1 tie for the Pirates against Cardinal lefty Curt Simmons (1-3. Vern Law, out since April 29 because of shoulder trouble, gave way to a pinch-hitter after shutting out the Cards on four hits for five innings. Elroy Face (2-1) then came on and won it. Gene Freese, whose error helped the Phils get a 2-0 lead in the second inning, brought the Reds from behind with a three-run homer in the fourth at Philadelphia off Frank Sullivan (l-4. Joey Jay (3-3) won his third in a row. By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Okay, so no one expected the Detroit Tigers to be out front with a four-game bulge. But if there's really an unexpected twist in the expanded American League, it has to be Washington's surprising Senators. For a club that had just one established starter, Dick Dono van, and reliever, Dave Sisler, the Senators' pitching has been a pip. In the last five games, the Sen ators have spurted from 10th place to seventh, passing Boston and the Chicago White Sox. After taking three out of four from the then slumping Red Sox, the Senators proved it was no fluke by beating second place New York 3-2 Tuesday night as southpaw Hal Woodeshick and Sisler combined for a two-hit job on the Yankees. That made it four in a row for Washington, and it pushed Detroit into the four-game lead when the Tigers again battered Baltimore, 10-4. The White Sox ended Minnesota's winning string at four, beating the Twins 5-4; Boston broke loose an 8-7 decision over Cleveland and Kansas City dropped the Los Angeles An gels 6-4. The Yankees scored a run in the third inning on two walks, a wild pitch and an infield out, but didn't get a hit off Woodeshick until Mickey Mantle cracked his 10th home run with one out in the sixth. Their only other hit was an eighth-inning single by Bill Skow-ron off Sisler, who had come on in the seventh and fanned pinch- hitter Y'ogi Berra with the bases loaded. The Senators had 10 hits and scored all their runs in the third on consecutive singles by Danny O'Connell. Chuck Hinton, Jim King and Willie Tasby and a clinching sacrifice fly by Dale Long.

Steve Barber (4-3) was the loser, giving up a two-run homer by Rocky Colavito and a two-run triple by Bubba Morton in a decisive four-run fourth. Norm Cash also homered for Detroit. Frank Malzone and rookie Jim Paglionari homered for the Red Sox. Ike Delock won his second with relief help in the eighth. Wynn Hawkins (3-2) was the loser.

Death Claims Campbell in Boxing Loss SAN FRANCISCO (AP)-Light-weight boxer Harry Campbell, 23-year-old former Olympic star who turned pro, died Tuesday night 24 hours after suffering a brain injury in a 10-round main event. Campbell, who underwent surgery for a hemorrhage, never regained consciousness. An accumulation of hard, bilt not devastating punches was blamed for the injury. The San Jose State sophomore and member of the 1960 Olympic team collapsed in the Kezar Pavilion ring Monday night after losing a 10-round decision to Al Med-rano, Sacramento, Calif. Doug Hayden, San Francisco member of the state athletic commission, said he would start an investigation to determine whether any negligence was involved in Campbell's fatal injury. Referee Verne Bybee said he was surprised to learn that Campbell had collapsed. "I didn't realize he was badly hurt until after I was in the dressing room and they came in to get a stretcher," said Bybee. The anxious Medrano accompanied Campbell to St. Luke's Hospital and awaited a report by Dr. Don Lastreto, physician for the California Athletic Commission. Dr. Lastreto told newsmen after the fight he recalled no "real hard" punches but believed the injury came from an accumulation of blows. Auggies Dash Jays' MIAC Title Hopes Boxing By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Houston, Tex. Cleveland Williams, 211, Houston, stopped AA Mteff, 208, Argentina, 5. San Jose. Calif. Frankie Ra-meriz, 1481, Los Angeles, stopped Jerry Hunnicutt, 1514, San Mateo, Calif., 7. MINNEAPOLIS Augsburg clinched at least a tie for the MIAC baseball championship at Parade Stadium Tuesday night with a 12-4 victory over St. John's that also eliminated the Jays from further contention. Shelly Johnson pitched the route for the Auggies and was given an early cushion when the host team scored twice in each of the first two innings and then erupted for seven tallies in the third. A single marker in the fourth closed Augsburg scoring for the night but the deficit was too much for the Jays to overcome. Each team slapped out a half dozen hits but three St. John's pitchers walked 11 men and the Johnnies also had three errors. Johnson, who upped his record to 5-0, struck out 14 men and walked five. His mates erred once. The big thorn in Johnson's side was freshman third baseman John Christopherson. He banged out a trio of hits, including a double and drove in three of the four Johnny runs. Ray Cipriano doubled and Jim Boyd and Ber- nie Beckman singled for the oth er St. John's hits. Starter Lyle Christie was lifted in the third by Coach Ed Has-brouck but his reliefer, Bill Beau-pre, didn't have any success either and Mark Sieve came on to finish the contest. Sieve turned in a masterful re lief effort but it was too late. He granted only three runs in the six innings he worked, two of them earned. In addition, the righthander struck out nine men and walked four while giving np three blows. Cleanup hitter Bruce Gildseth and Mike Roback had the big bats for the winners. Each had two-for-three. Gildseth, who had a two-bagger in his collection, drove in four runs. Roback plated three. The St. John's runs came in bursts of two in the fourth and sixth. Christopherson and Cipriano each doubled in the sixth to aid that rally. In the fourth, a walk, hit batsmen, two hits and a sacrifice were instrumental. The Johnnies take a 4-3 conference mark into their next contest, Saturday at home against Gus- tavus. The game closes out their loop season. On the season, SJ stands 8-4. At St. Peter, St. Thomas put life into its title hopes by edging Gus-tavus Adolphus 5-4. The victory put the Toms into a 6-1 mark against the 7-0 held by the Auggies. ST.
