7 THE OTTAWA HERALD •• Monday. April 22, 1963 American League Aguirre Better Than Last Year When He Was Best By JACK HAND Associated Press Sports Writer If any critics still think Hank Aguirre was a flash in the pan last year when lie led the American League pitchers, they are referred to the latest batch of statistics. Aguirre, the new Yankee killer of the Detroit Tigers, has started three games, won three games and pitched three complete panics. His earned run average unofficially is 1.67, better than his leading 2.21 of last year. Aguirro gave up eight hits and fanned seven, running his season's strikeout total to 20 with a 5-2 victory Sunday over Boston Baltimore traded shutouts with Cleveland and remained a half game ahead of the pack in the American League. Steve Barber blanked the Indians with four hits, 7-0, striking out II and Dick Donovan retaliated with a four-hitter 2-0 against the Orioles. It was the same story in Chicago where Minnesota's Jim Roland, a 20-year-old rookie south- paw making his first start, shutout the White Sox 7-0 with three singles. Then the Sox's John Buzhardt came right back with a four-hitter, 8-0. Jim Bouton came to the rescue of Ralph Terry in the second inning and pitched the New York Yankees to a 7-6 edge over Washington. Leon Wagner's three-run homer enabled Los Angeles to best Kansas City 6-2. In the National League the New York Mcts swept two from Mil waukee 85 and 92, Cincinnati downed Pittsburgh 83. Chicago Aguirre was Manager Bob Scheffing's last hope in Boston where the Tigers had dropped three in a row after sweeping two from the Yanks. A three-run homer by Norm Cash off Bill Mon- bouquette, a 420-foot drive into the right field bleachers, was the big blow. Bob Tillman homered for Boston. Baltimore racked up bonus baby Sam McDowell in the first inning while Barber coasted home with his third victory. Then Donovan, making his first start in 10 days, A's Drop To Fourth By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS In the American League, Kan sas City fell into a tie for fourth place as it lost 6-2 to the Los Angeles Angels.

Main US Baseball Team Falls In Pan Am , By JERRY LISKA Associated Press Sports Writer SAO PAULO, Brazil (AP)-The fourth Pan American Games, scarcely under way, left the big United Stales squad jolted by a few surprises today. Although swimmers splashed to two Pan Am records and Uncle Sam's basketball team scored a walkway 93-65 opening triumph over Puerto Rico, Cuba's baseball team clobbered the Yankees, 13-1 Sunday. Additionally, the United States' four-member tennis team found itself outnumbered by host Brazil and Mexico in some sort of organizational blunder. The games moved into their third day of competition with yachting and wrestling joining 10 other sports already under way. The prime sport of the 23 listed competitions, track and field, does not start until Saturday. In Sunday's first real burst of activity six medals symbolic of championships were awarded. Three went to the Yanks. The U.S.A. and Brazil each grabbed two of the four judo titles at stake. The bantamweight crown went to British Guiana. Defending featherweight lifting champion, Issac Berger of York, Pa., repeated with a record-breaking total lift of 792.50 pounds. In the first athletic contest between Cuba and the United States since the Castro regime began, the U.S.A. baseball forces were humiliated by the Cubans. As the United States qualified all eight o its swimming entires in events tested Sunday, Chet Jaslremski and Steve Clark shattered Pan Am records. Jastremski, world breast stroke record holder at 2 minutes, 29.6 seconds for 200 meters, splashed to a heat victory in 2:37.4 for one meet mark. Clark, 19, came up with a 54.7 meet record clocking in his 100 meter free style heat. TRUCKING Livestock & General FREIGHT Local or Long Distance ORREN ALTIC Ph.

Bouton had some shaky moments for the Yanks but retired the last nine batters in succession for his first victory. Terry was slammed for five nils and four runs in 1 2-3 innings. Tom Tresh homered for the Yanks. Rolands success gave the Twins yet another lefthander on a staff that already is lopsided on the port side. He gave up two singles in the first inning, walked nine but. struck out seven. Bob Allison hit a two-run triple and his fourth homer. Buzhardt had no «erious problems in his second game romp in which rookie Pete Ward led the White Sox attack with three singles and four runs batted in. Yanks Get Pitcher, Utilityman WASHINGTON (AP) -" This gives us a better balanced team," said New York Yankee Manager Ralph Houk, explaining three deals made by the world champions—words that must have sent a shudder through the American League today. The Yankees added left-handed relief pitcher Steve Hamilton and right-handed hitting utility man Harry Bright, and disposed of pitchers Jim Coates and Hector (Skinny) Brown, in a flurry of activity Sunday. Hamilton came from Washington in a straight trade for Coates. Bright was purchased from Cincinnati for about $25,000, and Brown was sold to the Houston Colts for the same price. The Yankees needed a left-hand- er, since Whitey Ford has been slow rounding into shape and Bud Daley has a sore arm. Bright fills the Yankee need fo a right-handed hitter to spell rookie Joe Pepitone at first base. Pepitone has had trouble hitting left- handers.

Southpaw 11 Under At Houston HOUSTON, Tex., (AP)-Spon sors of the $50,000 Houston Golf Classic were searching for a formula to prevent a fifth straight playoff and they found one in the form of Bob Charles, a left-hand- er from New Zealand. Charles, 27, not only halted the Classic's playoff habit but he won the $10,000 in top money with a 72-hole record 268. He also became the first left-hander to win a PGA- sponsored tournament. The New Zealander—11 under par and three strokes in front after the first three rounds—needed a one-under 69 final round Sunday to turn back thrilling challenges from Fred Hawkins, a veteran pro, and amateur Homero Blancas, the son of a greenskeep- er at Houston's exclusive River Oaks Country Club. As Jack Nicklaus, a 5-1 pre-tournament favorite, faltered with a rash of bogies, Hawkins picked up three strokes on Charles with a final round 66 and a 269 that was worth $4,600. Blancas, who shot a 302 in the 1963 Masters, had seven birdies while taking a 64 and a third-place 270. Charles, the New Zealand bank clerk, was seeking his first PGA tournament title. Nicklaus, the new Masters champion, had to settle for a 71 and $3,000 for a fourth-place 273 after posting three bogies and three birdies on the front nine and two bogies and one birdie on the final nine. Gary Player, who also held 5-1 odds Thursday with Nicklaus, came back with a fourth-round 67 and a 283 for $400, his lowest finish and money take of the year.

Well, forget it." So the Braves can forget about Jim Hickman—if they can. That will take some forgetting. Hickman drove in seven runs with a 450-foot double and two homers, one a grand slam, as the Mets won a doubleheader from the Braves Sunday 8-5 and 9-2. The double win gave the Mets four straight for the first time in their history, and lifted them out of the National League cellar for the first time since last May 23. The San Francisco Giants held on to the top spot with a split against the Chicago Cubs. The Cubs won the opener 4-1 and the Giants the second game 3-2. In other National League games St. Louis split with Philadelphia, losing 4-3 and winning 10-5, the Los Angeles Dodgers whipped Houston twice, 11-3 and 6-5, and Cincinnati trampled Pittsburgh 8-3. Hickman's grand slam won the first game for the Mets. He hit it in the eighth inning off Claude Raymond, with the Mets trailing 5-4. Willie Mays and Willie McCovey each hit their fourth home runs for the Giants in the second game, and Tom Haller's single drove home the winning run. Tony Gonzalez doubled off the Scoreboard in the 10th inning to drive in the winning run for the Phillies in the opener against the Cards. In the second game, the Cards spotted the Phillies four runs in the first inning and then roared back against Art Mahaffey, with Dick Groat driving in four runs. Ron Fairly carried the big bat for the Dodgers against the Colts. He drove in three runs in the opener, hit a two-run homer in the fourth inning of the second and then broke a 5-5 tie in tht last of the ninth with a bases- loaded single. Bob Miller, who was 1-12 as a Met last season, ran his unscored on streak to 212-3 innings for the Dodgers in the opener before he was chased in the sixth. However, he got the victory, his first of th« season. Cincinnati scored all its runs in the first four innings with Leo Cardenas and Vada Pinson driving in two each. Jim Maloney gave up 12 hits but was tough when it mattered, and got his second win. No Bed For Walt LOS ANGELES (AP)-Mt.
