Foxes Whip Clinton, 5-0 In Brawl-Marred Game .ill 7 A 1 Giants Retain 1 i-Game Lead With 6-5 Win Philadelphia Nips Los Angeles, 3-2; Reds Top Cubs, 7-0 BY MIKE RATHET Where has Warren's Wonder gone? For the ninth consecutive time Warren (The Wonder) Spahn. Milwaukee's 43-year-old pitching marvel, trudged from the mound Thursday after failing to finish what he started as the Braves lost to St. Louis 4-3. So, within hours, Milwaukee fans were forced to wonder whether the Braves were ready to hit the road and whether Spahn had reached the end of it. First came still another report that the Braves would be playing in Atlanta next year. And then Spahn went out to the mound against the Cardinals, looking for his first victory in a month and his first complete game since May 19. Instead, the winningest lefthander in major league history was knocked out in the seventh inning and tagged with his third straight loss. He now is bogged down with a 5-8 record and a staggering 4.89 earned run average. But what was most indicative of Spahn's problems was his continuing failure to register a complete game. The 13-time, 20-game winner, whose career record stands at 355 victories and 224 losses, holds a major league record for complete games, having led the National League in that department nine times.

And he has given up a dozen home runs, the highest figure among the Milwaukee hurlers. Lost Lead Twice The Braves lost the lead twice in bowing to the Cardinals for the second straight time. Spahn took the loss and is 5 and 8 for the season. The victory went to Cardinal starter Ray Sadecki, who is 9 and 6. But he needed help from rookie right - hander Bob Humphrey who didn't give up a hit in the last three innings. Sadecki fanned eight Braves before he was lifted for a pinch-batter in the seventh. It was in the seventh that the Cards pushed over the deciding runs and sent Spahn to the showers. Julian Javier, who had homered in the fourth, opened the seventh with a single, and aft er an out, scored on a pinch double by Charlie James. A sin gle by Carl Warwick, batting for Sadecki, finished Spahn.

Boston f Yanks Nip A's In 15th Inning; Twins Maul Bosox BY MURRAY CHASS Willie Smith, baseball's new est Cinderella, hasn't turned into a pumpkin after all. Smith, who stepped off the pitchers' mound into a slugging outfielder's role, clouted a grand slam homer in the ninth inning that boosted the Los Angeles Angels to a 10-6 triumph over the American League-leading Baltimore Orioles Thursday night. Smith also belted a single and home run. two doubles and drove in two other runs as the Angels broke their five-game losing streak. The 25-year-old wizard, who didn't do much for the Angels with his pitching arm, won three consecutive games with his bat during the team's recent 11-game winning streak. Sudden Slump After the amazing outburst, though, Smith tailed off considerably, as if midnight had struck. Before Thursday's game he had only five hits in his last 27 times at bat. Worse, he man aged only two hits in 16 times at bat during the Angels' losing streak. The sudden slump dropped his average from a season's high of .340 to .286. Just as suddenly, though, Wil lie rediscovered his glass slip per, or bat, and shattered the Orioles. He popped out in the first inning, then: Doubled home the Angels' first run in the fourth; ignited a two-run rally with a leadoff single in the sixth; doubled across another run in the sev enth and connected off ace re liever Stu Miller with the bases j loaded in the ninth for his fourth wrong conclusions "This rumor, if you want to call it that, has gone round full circle. It started in St. Louis a year ago and now it's back there." Flat Yes or No However, when asked for a flat yes or no answer on whether the Braves would be in Mil waukee in 1965, McHale said, "I don't think I'm prepared to answer that in any way until the season is over. The Srjortine News said in St. Louis Thursday it had learned:" from an unimpeachable source that tne Braves would move to Atlanta in 1965. Sporting News publisher C.C.
