2 THE OTTAWA HERALD Wednesday, AprU 17, 1963 National League So Much Balking Don't Need Hitting By MIKE RATHET Associated Press Sports Writer Can you visualize a stopwatch hanging in Baseball's Hall of Fame? It could happen. National League umpires are bellowing "balk" with such startling rapidity, they're advancing base runners quicker than the batters. Seven balks were called in the National League Tuesday, bring- the over-all total for less ing than two weeks o f the season to 30 balk calls in 32 games. For the same period of the 1962 season, there were only four. Not one balk has been called in the American League. The scorecard showed five balk calls at San Francisco, where the Giants whipped Houston 7-0 behind Billy Pierce's six-hitter. Two were called at Pittsburgh as St. Louis edged the Pirates 4-3. The other teams escaped. The Chicago Cubs handed the Los Angeles Dodgers their fourth setback in the last five games, 2-1 in 12 innings, Warren Spahn's four-hitter gave Milwaukee an 8-0 decision over Philadelphia and Cincinnati made it seven straight losses for the New York Mets, 7-4. Houston Manager Harry Craft and pitching coach Cot Deal suggested that Augie Donatelli make a stopwatch part of his standard umpiring equipment when they Celtics Two-Up In Title Playoff By BOB SALMON Associated Press Sports Writer BOSTON (AP)—The apprehensive Boston Celtics took a commanding two-game lead mixed with foreign court doubts to Los Angeles today after beating the Lakers for the second straight time in the National Basketball Association's championship playoff series. The third game of the best-of- seven series was set for tonight at the Los Angeles Sports Arena. Game No. 4 also will be played there, Friday night, before the series returns to Boston Sunday night—IF. But both opposing coaches — Freddie Schaus of the Lakers and Red Auerbach of the Celtics—felt sure the series would never be a four-game affair. Schaus says Los Angeles can tie it at home and Auerbach is afraid of that possibility. 'We can tie it up back home—I honestly. feel that," said Schaus after the Celtics posted a 113-106 rictory at Boston Garden Tuesday ight. "We weren't bad out there n the first two games but I know we can play better. It was just i case of the Celtics playing a ittle better thus far in the cries." The Celtics overcame an early •OS Angeles lead and had the acl- antage up to a dozen points be- ore having to hold off a late Bakers rally. But though the visors whittled it down to four joints, the Celtics won going way. Sam Jones and Tom Heinsohn aced Boston in the scoring de- artment in the second game, etting 27 and 26 points, respectively. Elgin Baylor of the Lakers as the game's big scorer with 0 points, while teammate Jerry West had 28 and Dick Harriett cored 20. Scoreboard By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS American League W. L. Pet. G.B.

College Scores By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Baseball Iowa State 18, Drake 8 LSU 10, Arkansas 2 Bradley 6, Iowa 0 Track William Jewell 113, Westminster questioned (he third balk call against Colt pitchers. The suggestion was not well taken, and Craft and Deal were thrown out in less time than it takes to call a balk. Pierce, called for two balks, had no complaints. He remained unbeaten at Candlestick Park with his 14th straight regular season victory. The 87-year-old left-hand- er struck out six while walking three before 40,782 attending the home opener of the National League champs. The Giants put it out of reach with four runs in the first inning, two coming home on a double by Felipe Alou. The Cardinals came up with two runs in the last of the ninth to give rookie Harry Fanok his first major league victory. Duke Carmel's first major league homer, a pinch-hit job off loser EIRoy Face, tied the score before the clincher came across on a double by Curt Flood and a throwing error by Julio Gotay on Dick Groat's grounder. Stan Musial, the major league record-holder in the department, accounted for his 6,000th total base with an eighth-inning single. The Cubs pushed across the tie breaker against Ed Roebuck on two-base error by Willie Davis n Billy Williams' fly, an infield it by Ron Santo and a sacrifice fly by Ernie Banks. Banks ac- ounted for Chicago's first run vith a fifth inning homer. Lindy flcDaniel was the winner in re- lef of Bob Buhl, who had a five- lit shutout working until the ighth when Willie Davis singled n a run. Spahn won his 329th game and >osted his 56th career shutout. Ed ie Mathews supported the 41- ear-old left-hander with his 400th major league homer.

Most of the time he might as well leave his bat in the rack. Last year was typical. Aguirre hit .027. He was up 75 times and struck out 46. Once he grounded into a doubleplay, which is pretty good for him. He got two hits. One came off Hal Reniff of the New York Yankees, who was promptly sent to the minors. Against the Yankees Tuesday, Aguirre got his first hit of the new season, and his ninth in nine years in the majors. It went about 10 feet down the third base line, but it came with the bases loaded. Yankee third baseman Clete Bbyer, apparently startled by this offensive display, picked the ball up and threw it away. Before the dust had settled three runs were home. The Tigers went on to whip the Yankees 7-2 and move into a three-way tie for first place in the American League. The Kansas City Athletics gained a share of the lead with the Tigers and Yankees by win- rung their fourth straight, 7-4 over the Chicago White Sox. All three teams have 4-2 records. In other American League games, Cleveland shut out the Washington Senators 3-0 on Sam McDwlTs wo-hitter, the Bostonie McDowell's two-hitter, the Boston Red Sox set back the Baltimore Orioles 6-1 and the Minnesota Twins won a weirdie from the Los Angeles Angels, 11-10 in U innings. McDowell, another of the bright young men on the Cleveland ros- tr, pitched his first complete game in the majors, striking out L3. McDowell, a 20-year-old left- bander, was matched by Claude Osteen of the Senators until Woodie Held hit a leadoff homer in the seventh. Dick Stuart made his Boston debut, and immediately made friends with the cozy left field wall. His three-run homer off Robin Roberts in the sixth inning was the big blow behind Bill Monbou- quette, who spun a five-hitter. There were some strange goings-on at Minnesota, where the Angels and the Twins struggled for 4 hours and 47 minutes. The Angels used nine pitchers, the Twins eight, for a major league record of 17. There were nine errors, six by the Angels, and 33 hits. Five times the Twins overcame Angel leads. Eli Grba, the ninth Angel hurler, walked home the winning run with the bases full in the 13th.
