fdiho Free Press Caldxsll tows-Tribune, Tuesday, June 20, 1957 -- 5 I _ tatno Free Press 4 Calawll tows-Tritnne, Tuesday, Jnni ndians Starting to Make Their Move By United Press International Joe Adcock has learned how to pul a rabbit out of a hat but lus Cleveland Indians may be pullmg an even bigger trick on the entire American League The Indians, never figured as a contender this season, surrep- itiously crept into a tie for hird place in the American League standings Monday night by sweeping a doubleheader from the Kansas City Athletics. Adcock's moves worked perfectly in both games as the Indians chalked up 2-1 and 4-2 triumphs to move Into a tie with Minnesota, six games behind the league-leading but idle Chicago White Sox and just 2'/r behind second place Detroit AdCock, who had run into problems handling his players in his first season as manager, laughed after the sweep, "when you reach Into a hat and pick out a rabbit, you're doing all right." In the first game with two out in the ninth inning and one on, Adcock let his pitcher, Steve Hargan, bat with the score tied 2-2. Hargan promptly slammed his tirst major league homer to win his own game. In the second game with the Mans trailing 1-0, Adcock didn't let his pitcher, Sonny Sieberl, lead off the eighth inning. He sent Don Demeter up to pinch-hit and Demeter homered to tie the game. Fred Whitlield singled in Lee Maye later in the inning to decide the contest. The Indians have now won seven of their last 11 games to move above the .500 recordwith a 32-31 record and Adcock thinks the Indians are in the race. Hargan boosted his record to 8-6 in the first game by pitching a four-hitter and slugging the homer that beat Chuck Dobson. In the second game, Sonny Siebert allowed six hits in eight innings to gain the victory that evened his record at 6-6 and Bob Allen finished up in the ninth. Elsewhere in the American League, Baltimore split with Minnesota, losing the first game 4-0 and winning the second, 9-5; Detroit split with California, losing the first contest 2-0 and winning the second 5-1 and the Boston-New York game was postponed by rain. In the National League, San Francisco edged Cincinnati 6-3, Pittsburgh topped Chicago 4-3, St. Louis nipped Houston 5-4 in 11 innings and Los Angeles topped Atlanta 3-2. Denny McLain pitched a four- hitter to boost his record to 8-7 and give Detroit the victory over California in the second game. It was only the third victory in the last 13 games for the slumping Tigers. In the tirst game, Kick Keichardt hit a two- run homer in the eighth inning to give Clyde Wright his second straight victory this season -both over the Tigers. Minnie Rojas relieved Wright in the eighth and nailed down the victory. Mickey Lolich lost the opener, his ninth loss of the season and seventh straight. Dave Boswell pitched a three- hitter in the opener to give Minnesota the triumph over Baltimore but Paul Blair led the hitting attack that handed Baltimore the second game. Tony Oliva hit a two-run homer in the sixth off Tom Phoebus to give Boswell all the help he needed in Hie opener, Blair collected two singles, a double and a triple and scored three runs to pace the Oriole triumph in the nightcap. The Orioles shelled loser Jim Grant and four other Twin pitchers for a total of IS hits to make It a roul. Wally Bunker pitched the first five Innings for theOrioles to get the win and Bill Dillman hurled the final four. Matty Alou's refresher course in batting from hisoldprofesror may have started things rolling toward a successful graduation for the Pittsburgh Pirates. Alou, who earned his masters degree in batting last year when he led the National League with a .342 average, learned the fine techniques of hitting from his manager, Harry Walker, last year, hut he was flunking the subject this season and sought his skipper out two weeks ago for a cram course. Alou took some good notes from Walker's lecture, digested them and began putting the teachings to practical use last Saturday. He banged out four hits Saturday to spark a Pirate victory, added four hits Sunday in another triumph and stroked three more Monday night to pace Pittsburgh to a 4-3 victory over the Chicago/:iibs. "Two weeks ago Harry Walker told me to ctoke up a couple of inches on the bal," said the 28-year-old outfielder. "It's helped. That and a Hide luck. I'm able lo wait on the ball a little longer now.; 1 Alou's hot streak has boosted his average to .311 and as a result of his hitting the Pirates have moved to within four and one-half games of the league- leading St. Louis Cardinals. Alou's third single of the game scored the deciding run In the seventh inning as the Pirates won their thlrdstraight. Southpaw Bob Veale received credit for his eighth victory in 10 decisions while Ferguson Jenkins suffered his fifth loss in 13 decisions. Roger Maris doubled home Tim McCarver with the winning run in the Ulh as the Cardinals boosted their lead over second place Cincinnati lo one-half game. McCarver singled off Houston reliever Barry Latman with one out and came all the way around to score on Maris' drive torlght-ccnter. Dick Schofleld, a seldom used utility player, singled home Jim Lefebvre with one out In the ninth Inning to pace the Dodgers to their third straight victory. Schofield, who also homered in the contest, got his game- winning hit off reliever Dick Kelley after the Atlanta southpaw had walked Lefebvre and pinch-hitter Jim Hickman, Willie Mays and Jim Hart homered off rookie sensation Gary Nolan to power the Giants to victory over the slumping Reds in the only afternoon game. Mays' ninth homer of the year came with a man aboard and pul the Giants ahead 4-1 in the third inning and Hart's 10th of the season sent the 19-year- old Nolan to the showers in the same inning. Alou's third single of the game scored the deciding run in the seventh inning as the Pirates won their third straight. Southpaw Bob Veale received credit (or his eighth victory In 10 decisions while Ferpson Jenkins suffered his fifth loss in 13 decisions. SPORT PARADE Reef Sox Pi'/of dear's Success By MILTON RICHMAN NEW YORK (UPI)~Give some guys an inch and before you know it they want a whole acre. Dick Williams is a guy like that and that's only one reason he's such a good manager. He's never satisfied. The Ked Sox avoided finishing 10th last year by a mere half game and only because it wasn't possible for them to be any worse than the Yankees. there longer simply by being able to lay down a bunt." For the most part, however, Williams is happy with the overall performance of his Red Sox. "My biggest problem was getting the club to play as a team, not as 25 individuals," he says. "We're doing that now. We're more aggressive; we're doing more running, more stealing and more squeezing. We're not sitting back and playing Fenway Park ball; Williams, with no previous major league managerial exper- we're playing baseball." ience whatsoever, was brought It shows. in for this year and generally was looked upon as a lamb being led to the slaughter. Nobody could ever budge 'em up in Boston, people said. Too There was the belief in some quarters that because of his relative youth and inexperience, Williams might have to take a lot of back talk from some of many prima donnas. Too many his minions. Some even thought players doing what they liked, poor Williams would throw up Why it was more like a country his hands in surrender by July, club than a ball club. Williams knew exactly what he was getting -into, abut' he "Ridiculous," he says. "I've had no disciplinary problem whatsoever. My players and I welcomed the chance.

They're right Houston's Golf Team NCAA Pick SHAWNEE ON DELAWARE, Pa. (UPI) -- The East meets the West today in a tune-up match for the 70th annual NCAA golf championship on this resort course in the Pocono Mountains of northeast Pennsylvania. The actual 72-hole tournament, the nation's oldest golf tourney, gets underway Wednesday when a record field of 250 collegians representing 12 universities tee off on the 7,000-yard par-72 course at Shawnee Inn. The major intercollegiate golf championship features competition for team and individual honors with Houston University, perennial collegiate golf powerhouse and the defending champion, heavily favored to take the school title. The team title will be decided Thursday after 36 holes of stroke play while the individual 72-hole winner will be crowned on Saturday. The huge field will be cut to the low 60 scores and ties onThursday. Today's East-West match will put a number of two-man teams from each sector against each other in best-ball play. The West squad, which features John Miller of Brigham Young University and Kemp Richardson of Southern California, was ruled a slight favorite over the East, paced by B. fi. McLendon of Louisiana State and Jack Lewis Jr. of Wake Forest, the only Walker Cup player in the tourney. Among those seeking to unseal Houston, which has won the team title nine of the last 11 years, was Brigham Young, Louisiana State, Florida, Oklahoma State, Southern California and Wake Forest.
