(Courier News Photo) Marls Homers Wasted Giants Are Jolly By DICK COUCH Associated Press Sports Writer " With Willie Mays and Jim Hart thriving on an .economy kick, the San Francisco Giants have gone from austerity to affluence in one lively afternoon. Mays bunched a two-run ho. mer and two-run single in one -inning Sunday and Hart cracked three straight homers, good for ;six RBI, as the Giants swept a 'doubleheader from the Philadelphia Phillies 13-2 and 34. The Giants, who had scored just two runs in 24 innings while losing twice to Pittsburgh, erupted for 20 hits in the opener against the Phils and scored eight runs in the fifth inning, Mays accounting for half of them in his two trips to the plate. Mays sat out the first seven innings of the nightcap while Hart, who had drilled a three- run homer in the first game, accounted for all three San Francisco runs with a pair of homers off left-hander Chris Short. Ernie Banks' three-run homer led the Chicago Cubs past previously unbeaten St. Louis 7-6; Pittsburgh Wanked Los Angeles 3-0 on Jim Bunning's five-hitter and the New York Mets dealt Houston its first setack, 4-0, behind the five-hit pitching of rookies Nolan Ryan and Danny Frisella. The Cincinnati-Atlanta game was rained out. The Giants' offensive barrags in the first game sent right-han- der Juan Marichal breezing to his first victory since last Aug. 1. Marichal scattered six hits and contributed a run-scoring single to the fifth inning explosion. Ron Hunt opened the fifth with a double. After being knocked down, by a Rick Wise pitch, Mays hit the next one over the left center field fence for his first 1968 homer and the 565th of his career. Nine batters later, Willie's two-run capped the rally. single Hart lagged Short for a bases- empty homer in (he second inning of the nightcap and a two- run shot in the fourth. Southpaw Ray Sadecki made Hart's homers stand up, hurling a six-hitter and striking out 10 for his seventh straight victory in a carryover streak from last season. The Cardinals, who had won their first three starts, jumped in front of Chicago in the first inning on Roger Marts' three- run homer. But Billy Williams' run-scoring double and Banks' three-run homer sent the Cubs ahead to stay in the bottom of the first. Marls also hit a bases-empty •homer and Mike Shannon connected with one on for St. Louis. 'Banks' three RBI gave him a Roger Maris lifetime total of 1,400. Bunning, acquired by Pittsburgh in a winter trade with the Phillies, pinned the Dodgers with their third shutout loss in four games. Bonn Clendenon's two-run double and a solo homer by Gene Alley gave the slim right-hander all the support he needed. The Mets ended the Astros' getaway winning string at four games as Ryan pitched hitless ball for five innings, struck out eight and yielded three hits in all before leaving in the seventh with a blister on his pitching hand. Frisella fanned three more Astros in preserving Ryan's first .major league victory and Art Shamsky delivered two runs with a double and single. now has five RBI in four games tills season. He raised his average to 294 with a bases-loaded, two-out triple that broke a 3-3 tie in the fifth inning and a lead-off homer in the eighth.. "You notice that I'm closer to the plate?" he asked reporters. "Both pitches I hit are fast fall in on me. Pompeyo (his brother who played with Washington in 1953) tell me 'if they're going to hit you they're going to hit you whether you're close or far away from the plate. There's no way you can get away." Hansen's three-run double and run-scoring single and homers by Frank Howard and Bill Bryan gave the Senators their first victory after three losses. Dennis Higgins earned the victory with 4 2-3 innings of shutout relief, "the first time in the major leagues that I have pitched that far." Killebrew's belt came after Tony Oliva singled in a Minnesota run and then Bob Allison doubled home Killebrew with the decisive run-as the Yankees!

Freehan's hit came with the bases loaded and none out after the White Sox managed a 4-4 tie off Detroit starter Mickey Lolich on two-run homers-by Buddy Bradford and Tommy Davis. Roger Repoz led off California's victory with a homer and the Angels got another run when Baltimore shortstop Dave Johnson had trouble getting a ground ball out of his glove.

PO 3-8840 Arithmetic IS Important By BOB GREEN Associated Press Sports Writer AUGUSTA, Ga,''(APj. There's an ink stain on the left breast of Bob Gbalby's green Masters jacket. It doesn't show. But it's there. It. always will be. It was put there by'the; .'innocently errant pen of Tommy Aaron, who kept score for .his playing partner, Argentina's Roberto De Vicenzo in Sunday's near-incredible wind-up of the Masters Golf Tournament. De Vicenzo, the 'balding, globetrotter, who won last year's British Open Championship, was in the clubhouse with a brilliant, seven-under-par 65 for, 277, 11 under par, when Goalby came charging up through the pack and tied him' with a final round 66. Preparations for a playoff today were in the making when it was discovered De Vicenzo had signed an incorrect card and Goalby was (he champion a declared champion on a bookkeeping error. ' Hord Hardin, president of the U.S. Golf Assdciation and chairman of the . rules committee, made the bombshell announcement: "Under the rules of golf, he (De Vicenzo) will be charged with a'66, which does not leave, him in a.tie with Bob Goalby, who is 11 under par. "He is second, 10 under par." De Vicenzo, playing a round , that was just one shot off the j Masters record, tapped in a two-foot birdie putt on the par-4, 400-yard 17th hole, just as Goalby was catching him with a 10- foot eagle putt on the 520-yard 15th. . Through a split-screen account of it shown by GBS-TV, a national television audience saw the two putts drop almost together. But Aaron marked down a four on De Vicenzo's card, instead of three. Roberto went'on to bogey the last hole. Blinded by pressure and the frustration of the bogey he signed his card. And he was stuck with it — stuck' with a 1 66 instead of a 65. • . "I look at it," said the gallanl gaucho,- •"!• look at my care maybe four, : five times. But -1 don't see anything. I can't see Anything; "It's my fault," he said over and ' over. "It : is not Aaron's fault. It is my'fault. We' are professionals. We are suppose: 'to know. I play golf for 30 years all over the world and I never do this before. "I fee] very sorry for me., "There was so much pressure I lose my brains." Goalby, an obscure player on the tour for 11 years, was equally upset. '"I'm very, very .happy to-win the Masters," he said. "I'd be a liar if I said, any thing else.
