r\' 2 TOT OTTAWA HERALD Wednnday, April 10, 1963 National League Pardon, But Isn't This Where We Came In? By JIM BECKER ' Asociated Press Sports Writer You can be pardoned for that feeling that this is where you came in. : The National League baseball pennant chase got under way in earnest Tuesday, and these were some of the results on the first full day of action: ; Don Drysdale, a 25-game winner last year, won for the Los Angeles Dodgers. Jack Sanford, 24 wins, got the victory for the San Francisco Giants, as Willie Mays (49 last season) Orlando Cepeda (35), Felipe Alou (25) and Willie McCovey (20) homered. Art Mahaffey, 19 wins, set down the hard-hitting Cincinnati Reds on four hits, for the Philadelphia Phils. And the New York Mets, 120 losses last year, fell on their faces. The scores were Los Angeles 5, Chicago Cubs 1; San Francisco 9, Houston 2; Philadelphia 2, Cincinnati 1, and the St. Louis Cardinals 7, New York Mets 0. The Pittsburgh Pirates, who dropped the annual day-ahead opener Monday at Cincinnati to the Reds evened their record at 1-1 with a 3-2 victory over the Milwaukee Braves. The Dodger victory may have been costly. Shortstop Maury Wills, the league's Most Valuable Player last year, left after the sixth inning with a jammed left ankle and was doubtful for today's game with the Cubs. Suits for EASTER Wills, who stole 104 bases last season, revealed before the game that he had become worried about his valuable legs, and had gone to a hypnotist during the winter to try to get the worries off his mind. Wills apparently hurt the ankle in the third inning when he was thrown out at the plate on a double play. Drysdale gave up 11 hits but was helped by three double plays, as he won his sixth straight over the Cubs. The Dodgers broke a 1-1 tie in the sixth when Willie Davis tripled and scored on a balk by pitcher Larry Jackson, obtained in a winter trade from the Cards. Rookie Ken McMullen iced the game with a two-run double in the ninth. The Giants jumped off to a 6-0 lead at Houston. Cepeda's homer in the second opened the scoring and Sanford tripled home two runs in the same frame. Sanford weakened in ,the 90-degree heat and eft in the sixth after giving up hree straight singles. Jack Fisher, picked up in a trade with the Orioles, pitched hitless relief. Mahaffey, the 24-year-old hard hrowing right-hander, had a two- lit shutout going into the ninth. Frank Robinson opened that inning for the Reds with a single and moved to second on a ground out. Robinson scored when catcher John Edwards smashed a line double. Mahaffey then struck out Gene Freese and rookie Tom Har- >er to end the game but only after Freese had missed a home run by a few feet foul. Joey Jay, 21-14 last season, also ritched well, giving up only five kits in the seven innings he worked. Three singles, with Don Demeter's coming with two out, scoring the first Phillie run in the fourth. In the sixth, John Callison doubled and scored when Cincinnati first baseman Gordie Coleman let a double play relay throw get through him for an error. The Nets, the worst tenth-place team in history last year, opened with an almost entirely new cast, but the same old act. They fumbled and foozled the ball in the field, and were woeful at bat, as Ernie Broglio set them down with two hits. Larry Burright got both, a single in the first inning and a double in the ninth. At one stage, Broglio retired 20 Mets in a row. A newcomer third baseman Bob Bailey, whose bonus has been estimated in the $175,000 area, sparked for the Pirates. He hit a homer and a crucial single. The Pirates won in the ninth off reliever Bob Hendley, when Bill Virdon singled with two out, and Bailey beat out a slow roller for a hit. Then pinch hitter Ted Savage struck the winning blow, a single. Elroy Face, who pitched out of a bases-loaded, none-out jam in the ninth, got the win in relief. 14.95 to 29.95 For tittle Fellas'. For Big Boys Solid Shades in ad the popular colors. LL -,H. APPAREL lor real bey* FOR YOUNG MEN Celtics, Royals In Final Duel BOSTON (AP) - The world champion Boston Celtics—aging, tired and 10-point favorites — battle it out with the Cincinnati Royals tonight for the Eastern Division playoff crown in the national Basketball Association. The Celtics must win the final game in the best-of-seven series to earn a chance for their fifth straight NBA crown. The Royals must take it to continue their first title since the franchise moved to the Ohio city from Rochester, N.Y. Both teams are at full strength for the Boston Garden clash an the game has been a sellout for several days. The oddsmakers rate Boston 10-11 points better than the Royals, who won th sixth game 109-99 Sunday night in Cincinnati to square the series a 3-3. Sunny Jim Giving Up Racing At Last By BOB GREEN Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP)-The doctor looked at the skinny exercise boy and told him: "Young man, you'd better give up racing. Stay away from that excitement or you won't last with that heart." That was in 1887. Grover Cleveland was President. Now, 13 presidents and 76 years later, Sunny Jim Fitzsimmons is going to take the doctor's advice. He is getting away from racing. The famed, 88-year-old trainer will retire in June, ending a 78- year association with thoroughbred racing. He was the leading money winning trainer five times, saddled more than 2,000 winners —including two Triple Crown winners—and at one time or another his horses won almost every major race in America. His mind is as keen and active as ever, but his bent old body has found "the work increasingly burdensome." The annoucemet of his retirement was made Tuesday by Ogden Phipps, cne of three generations of the Phipps family for whom Sunny Jim tains. He also handles the horses of Mrs. Henry Carnegie Phipps' Wheatley Stable OTTAWA BOWL 418V 2 N. Main Phone CH 2-9741 TUESDAY NIGHT LADIES 1st 2nd 3rd Ttl. H.
