The case for Brock could be his age (27), his .304 batting average and the fact that he led the league in stolen bases last year and may repeat this season. But why not Willie Hays? Maybe his fellow players think 36 years is too old for a player. Maybe they are expecting too much. After all, Willie is only batting .293 and for the "Say Hey Kid" that's low. Willie couldn't have made a better case for himself than Wednesday night when he banged out two singles and two It was a Willie _,_ , one of his many, and as Brock] a Cardinal outfielder, stood and watched Willie race around the bases he may have wondered "Why me, not Willie." The St. Louis defeat coupled with the Chicago sweep of a doubleheader from the Pittsburgh Pirates, 4-2 and 3-1, cut the Cards' league lead to ff/ : games. Elsewhere in the National League, Houston snapped an eight-game losing streak by whipping Ihe Atlanta Braves 42; the Philadelphia Phillies edged the New York Mets 6-5 and the Los Angeles Dodgers rallied for a 7-5 victoryoverthe Cincinnati Reds. Mays wasn't the only clouting Giant. His teammates collected 19 hits off four Card pitchers and Kay Sadecki hurled a seven hitter for his first victory against his old teammates since they traded him last year. The Cubs rolled to their ninth victory in the last 10 games. Adolfo Phillips drove in three runs for the Cubs with a disputed homer in the first game. Phillips' 13lh homer, off Pirates reliever Pete Mikkelsen, carried over the left field wall dost to the foul pole. Third base umpire John Kibler called It a fair ball and before the argument was over, Pirate manager Harry Walker was ejected from the game. Kay Gulp hurled a three-hitter for the Cubs' success in the nightcap. The Dodgers are getting so good lately they can spot a team five runs and win. That was the case Wednesday night against Ihe Keds as Los Angeles made it five victories in a row. Jim Wynn raced home from third with the deciding run for Houston when Phil Niekro uncorked a wild knuckler in the ninth inning. Kichie Allen elebrated his being named the Alt-Star third baseman by smashing a three- run homer in the Phillies success over the Mets. The experts who've saidthere were a thousand reasons why the Chicago White Sox couldn't win the American League pennant now must be wondering if there aren't a thousand reasons why Iliey can't lose it. The weakhilling While Sox really weren't taken seriously when tliey bolted to Ihe front of the race earlier this season since they don't have a single hitter ol all-star caliber and theii pitching staff--while very effective--doesn't have a stopper of the Sandy Koufa class. M a n a g e r Eddie Stanky's seeming compulsion for switching players around and moving most of the players to more than one position in every gnme didn't seem to add much stability to the club, either. But with the defending champion Baltimore Orioles on the verge of collapse and the second place Detroit Tigers missing injured Al Kaline, the White Sox' 5 1 /? game lead is suddenly starting (o look rather impressive. The While Sox virtually knocked Baltimore out of contention Wednesday night with a 3-2 victory that boosted the White Sox' record against the Orioles to 6-0 this season and completed a three-game sweep, Chicago now heads into Detroit for a three-game set and if Detroit doesn't slow the White Sox down, the race could be over by the all-slar break. It was a typical one-run victory for the While Sox, Trailing 2-0, they got a three- run homer in the eighth from Wayne Causey, who was playing second in place of the injured Al Weis, and that decided it. Baltimore managed to load the bases with one out in the ninth but Hoyt Wilhelm got Dive Johnson to pop out and Boog Powell to ground out and that ended the game. Elsewhere In the American League, Detroit topped Cleveland 7-4, Minnesota topped Boston 3-2, Kansas City blanked New York 2-0 and California turned back Washington 4-2. Detroit rallied with four runs in the sixth inning on just one hit - Willie Horton's two-run, bases-loaded single--to beat Cleveland. It was only the sixth victory in the last 20 games for Detroit. Reliever Orlando Pena walked four batters to force in a run and Horlon then delivered his two-run single in the sixth off George Culver, Righthander Le'v Krausse and two relief pitchers combined for a five-hitter and Kansas City capitalized on shoddy New York oulfielding to beat the Yanks. Rookie outfielder Bill Robinson misplayed two Bert Campane- ris' line drives -- one for a double and another for a two- base error--to set up the two A's runs. Cesar Tovar singled ho me the tie-breaking unearned run in the seventh as the Twins stopped Boston behind the four-hit, 13- strikeout pitching of Dave BoswelU Tovar'sslnglefollowed George Scott's error and a sacrifice and pinned the loss on Lee Stange. Catcher Bob Rodgers doubled in two runs in the eighth inning to cap a three-run rally and give California the victory over Washington. Trailing 2-1, the Angels got singles by Jim Fregosi, John Werhas and Rick Reichardt to set the stage for Rodgers' double. SPORT PARADE Bauer Blasts Baseball Myth MAYS. MANTLE HOT STARTERS 4MM^ £± ·% ··· 4M m*+i*. mf*nii.G nvi J I M K I C R J SPURTS Old Guard Miss Lineup By MILTON ROMAN NEW YORK (UPl}-They say there's no sentiment inbaseball, but that's a bunch of sauerbraten. Hank Bauer will prove it in the next few days by personally picking Mickey Mantle for his American League All-Star team. Mantle, in all sincerity, says he'd be "embarrassed" if he were chosen, implying he doesn't ieel he deserves to be, but he's wrong. He most certainly does deserve to be picked by Bauer and he will be. You can 'bet on it, the same way you can that Willie Mays will be tapped for the National League All-Stars by Walt Alston. Possibly Don Lock, the big outfielder for ths Phillies, said it best before Wednesday night's battle with the Mets. "What's an All-Star game," he said, "without Mickey Mantle or Willie Mays?" He's right. Those areguysthe people come out to see and when they come out, they don't run their-finger down the page' and say, let's see, Mantle is hitting only .240 and Mays .280. The people don't care what Mickey or Willie happen to be hitting at the moment, they still want to see them. Without really trying to horn in, Gene Mauch, the Phillies' imaginative manager, says he'd name both Mantle and Mays to the Ail-Star teams if he were either Bauer or Alston. "Call it a complimentary selection or whatever else you like, I think every future Hall of Famer should be treated in this manner," Mauch maintains. "Didn't they do it with Stan Musial and Ted Williams at the tail-end of their careers? Didn't they pick them to the All-Star teams? "Maybe there's doubt in someone's mind about Mays and Mantle making the Hall of Fame when they're through, But there's no doubt in mine. Both are cinches." Mauch claims sentiment has nothing to do with a manager choosing Mantle or Mays, but he isn't entirely right there. Naturally, both Mickey and Willie still are capable of making their way without the aid of sentiment and would strengthen any team they'd join. But the fact remains, American League players designated two players, Harmon Killebrew and Don Mincher, far Jackson Sidelined ahead of Mantle at first base, while the National Leaguers voted for Robert Clemente, Hank Aaron and Lou Brock in front of Mays inlheoutfield. Mauch likes to take the hard line. "There's no sentiment in baseball once the game starts," he insists, thrusting his chin out. "But there's a lot of it before and after," he adds, more softly. Bauer, always pictured as a tough, gravel-voiced ex-marine, speaks in a gravel voice and served with the marines all right but really isn't that tough deep down. He says, "All friendship ceases once the ball game starts," and made it plain when Mantle originally took over first base that he'd order his Orioles to bunt on Mickey if he thought it would help their cause. But Bauer also is a former teammate of Mantle's and has a warm regard for him personally. It won't be hard at 'all for Bauer to pick Mantle, and Alston never will be cross- examined either for selecting Mays, always at his best at All- Star time. That'll leave only one guy missing. Not really, though. Sandy Kbufax is gonna be up in (he TV booth. HIGH STANDARDS By Alan Mover NEW YORK (UPI)-WillIe Mays of the San Francisco Giants, who has made the All- Stargamehis personal showcase many times in the past, was missing from the National League's starting lineup for the first time in 14 years today. LPGA Boasts Strong Field HOT SPRINGS, Va. (UPI- The 15th annual Women's Open golf tournament, pitting 94 of the nation's outstanding women linksters against the rolling Cascades course, was to get under way at this mountain resort today.

Though an amateur has never won (lie open, this year's contingent is regarded as the best bet ever to break the pros' hold on the prestigious title.

Completing the team chosen by managers, coaches and players were the Pittsburgh doubleplay shortstop vote for players on their own team. The amount of votes per (earn varied according to those with at least 30 days eligibility. There were no close races.

Not a single rookie was among the 50 players who received at least one vote.

Santana was knocked out by Charlie Pasarell of Puerto Rico on opening day, fourth-seeded Roche fell victim to Cliff Richey of San Antonio, Tex., on Tuesday and then on Wednesday it was seventh-seeded of Australia. As for Richey, anything that iiappened to him against Australia's Ray Ruffes loday had to be easier than his three hour and 45 minute, As for Pasarell, he was magnificent in the clutch again, winning from South Africa's BobHewi!!, 6-3,6-8,6-2.6-}.

Mllqhl MONTREAL OJPO-Canada's Centennial Expo 67 open, the third richest golf tournament in the world, starts today with I'.S. open champion Jack Nicklaus and leading money- winner Arnold Palmer in their familiar role as co-favorites. The 72-hole ctiase for the 200,000 Canadian dollars (about $185,000 in U.S. money) is being held on the revamped East End municipal course, a par 35-36-71, 6,600-yard waterless layout that is one of ihe most controversial on Ihe tour this year. While the tourney has attracted d fine field, most of the visiting pros were less than ecstatic over Ihe flat, poorly- conditioned municipal layout. Perhaps KCGA (Royal Canadian Golf Association) governor Peter Benlley expressed it better than most ot Ihe more charitable pros were willing to do when he referred to II as "a cow pasture." the chief complaints were wild fairways and the bumpy, spotty greens. "It will be tough to gel the ball off these fairways," said Billy Casper, "and you'll have to hit a lot of greens here if you hope to score well."
