Nuxhall and Fischer Hurl Mound Gems By The Associated Press When Joe Nuxhall was throwing newspapers onto front porches, Hank Fischer was tossing toys out of his playpen. „ j w £. d , ecade s later, Nuxhall and Fischer are throwing shutouts at National League opponents. ., ?ach pitcher recorded hi s third shutout Wednesday night, high in the league this season. Cincinnati's Nuxhall stopped the stumbling Los Angeles Dodgers 1-0 on six hits while Fischer hurled a four-hitter in Milwau- mL. s 2 "° victor y over Houston. The 24-year-old Fischer increased his record to 5-2 and lowered his earned run average to 2.75. Nuxhall, 35-year-old veteran, won his fourth game against three defeats and reduced his ERA to 3.30. The Cincinnati southpaw went from delivering newspapers in Hamilton, Ohio, to pitching in ™ e rnajor leagues at the age of 15. That was in 1944 when Fischer was four years old. When the Braves' right-hand- er entered organized baseball in 1959, Nuxhall already had been for 15 years. In fact, ,four years before, Nuxhall led the league in shutouts with five. This season marks the first time he has exceeded two shutouts with the exception of that year. In two previous major league seasons, Fischer didn't blank anybody. Fischer's victory Wednesday night overshadowed the two-hit performance of his opponent, Skinny Brown of Houston. In another NL shutout, Art Me haffey threw a four-hitter as Philadelphia halted Pittsburgh's five-game winning streak 2-0. Juan Marichal limited St. Louis to seven hits in San Francisco's 2-1 triumph while Dick Ellsworth and Chicago stopped New York 7-1 on seven hits. Nuxhall got the better of the Dodgers' Sandy Koufax, who allowed the Reds just three hits but still dropped his fourth game in eight decisions. Nuxhall didn't walk a man and allowed only two Dodgers to reach second base. The Reds scored in the first on a walk to Pete Rose, Tommy Harper's infield hit and a bloop single by Vada Pinson. 2:30 P.M. At The Old Muncinial Airport Highway 90 Hast Advance tickets 1.00 Tickets at gate 1.50 On Sole At 413 Ryon Or From Any Optimist Member The Braves scored two funs for Fischer in the fourth. Ed Mathews singled and went to second when Ty dine was hit by a pitch. Both advanced on a passed ball. An intentional walk with one out loaded the bases. Two runs then scored as Rusty Staub hobbled a throw that would have completed an inning- ending double play. Mahaffey completed his first game in eight starts, holdJng the Pirates to two doubles by Dick Schofield and singles by Donn Clendenon and Smoky Burgess Bob Friend lost his fourth game against four victories. Doubles by Clay Dalrymple and Cookie Rojas and Richie Allen's single in the third gave the Phillies their runs. Marichal brought his record to 7-1 as the Giants stayed close to the first-place Phillies. He got out of tight situations three different times. Chuck Killer and Duke Snider opened the game with consecutive home runs off the Cardinals' Bob Gibson, who suffered his first defeat after four triumphs. The Mets calmed down after their uncharacteristic outburst the day before when they scored 19 runs. They gave starter Al Jackson the usual support—no runs in the 51-3 innings he pitched. Jackson, now 3-6, has not had a run scored for him in 36 innings. The Cubs put the game away | in the first when Ron Santo tripled in one run and scored on Ernie Banks' single.
