Willie Mays Again Has NL Pitchers Seeing Double Giant Star Hits 9th, 10th Homers By MIKE RATHET Associated Press Sports Writer Willie Mays. Willie Mays. Yes, that guy has National League pitchers seeing double again. Mays, who gets $105,000 a year to parade his talents for the San Francisco Giants, put on another one-man show Friday night by hammering two solo homers in a 4-3 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers. That gave Mays five homers in the last four games and a major league-leading total of 10 in just 22 games. Meanwhile, Bob Gibson of the St. Louis Cardinals, another quick starter, pitched a one-hitter in a 2-0 victory over Philadelphia allowing only a fourth inning single by Johnny Callison as he posted his fifth victory without a loss and his third shutout. Houston's Dave Giustl also brought his record to 5-0 by grabbing the victory in the Astros' 5-4 triumph over the Chicago Cubs. In the only other game played, Pittsburgh edged Cincinnati 5-4 on Manny Mota's decisive single. Mays is hitting .356, but in the home run department he's exactly where he was on May 8 last year. The Giants could have used another big bat against the Dodgers with Mays' homers off Claude Osteen in the second and fourth innings providing a 2-0 lead that Jack Sanford was unable to hold. The Dodgers eventually cracked a 3-3 tie in the eighth inning on John Roseboro's third hit, a sacrifice, and Dick Tra- cewski's single. That made Osteen the winner with a six-hitter. Gibson, working effortlessly, struck out eight and walked three while allowing only Callison's clean single to right center with one out in the fourth. Gibson was locked in a scoreless duel with Chris Short, now 4-2, until the seventh when two Philadelphia errors proved his undoing. Julian Javier beat out a hit to get things started for the Cardinals, raced to third on Cookie Rojas' wild throw and scored on Lou Brock's single. Curt Flood then grounded out but Dick Stuart tried to nail Brock going "to third, threw wild, and Brock scored. The Cubs got started quickly against Guisti and the Astros with Ernie Banks hitting a three-run homer in the first. But Houston took over after that. Guisti drove home two runs with a double in the second and the Astros wrapped it up with Bob Aspromonte's three - run homer in the fifth. trailing 4-2 in the ninth, the Pirates Jammed through three runs to beat the Reds. Mota's two-out single drove In the clincher after pinch hitter Gene Freese slapped a run-producing single and Roberto Clemente knocked in the second run with a sacrifice fly. Spartans Nip Iowa by 4-3 -• BAST LANSING (AP)—Pitcher John Krasnan capped a three-run, ninth-inning Michigan State rally with a run-scoring single Friday as the Spartans nipped Iowa 4-3 in a Big Ten baseball game. Krasnan's hit followed a two- run triple by pinch hitter Dick KUbourne. MSU's Jerry Walker drove in the other Spartan tally with a double in the seventh. Iowa outhit the Spartans 11-7 but Krasnan went all the way for the victory. Jim McAndrew was the losing pitcher. The Hawkeyes' Larry Rathje bad three hits and McAndrew and Mickey Moses two each. The victory boosted Michigan State's record to 4-3 in the Big Ten and 19-7 over-all. Iowa is S-3 and 7-10. The Spartans take on Minnesota In a doubleheader today. CMU Cops 5th Straight Win MOUNT PLEASANT (AP)— Central Michigan won its fifth straight game and ran its season baseball record to 18-4 in defeating Illinois State 7-4 in an IIAC contest Friday. The loss was Illinois State's fifth without a victory in league play. Central's IIAC record is »-l. Gary Taylor, winning his ~ fifth game against one defeat, pitched the route for Central.

Central ^ 11 * Bragan Believes Braves Have Good Chance to Cop Pennant By JOE REICHLER Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP) — You can't prove it by Milwaukee's 98 won and lost record but Braves' Manager Bobby Bragan believes his team's pennant chances are just as good, if not better, than they were at the start oi the season. "I still think it's a six-team race," Bragan said Friday after rain forced the postponement of the scheduled night encounter with the New York Mets. "But Mantle Has Leg Trouble Again WASHINGTON (AP)—"Mickey can't run," said New York Yankee Manager Johnny Keane. It's as simple as that." Thus Keane acknowledged that the Yankees' $100,000 outfielder, Mickey Mantle, once again is having trouble with his legs. This time the diagnosis is a double pull of the muscles in his right leg. The injury flared up dramatically Friday night after Mantle removed himself from the starting Yankee line-up for the first game of a doubleheader against the Washington Senators. He went in as a pinch hitter in the eighth inning, rapped a line drive that shortstop Ed Brinkman knocked down and took three or four steps toward first base. Then, in obvious pain, he limped toward the dugout. Keane said later Mantle had orders not to run if the ball went to the infield. Mantle's injury goes back to last Sunday when, in a doubleheader, he played nine innings in each game — rare for him. By the last inning or two of the nightcap, he was limping. The Yankee trainer said the slugger had two knots, or bumps, on the leg. Keane said the injury, if aggravated now, could knock Mantle out of action "for a long time." He said whether or not Mantle plays in the next few games will be decided on a day- to-day basis. Mantle, now hitting .250 with four homers and nine runs batted in, has been plagued with injuries during his career. After the 1963 season he underwent an operation to remove loose cartilage from his left knee. He hit .303 last year with 35 homers and 111 RBI. His absence, expected to extend through games here today and Sunday leaves Keane lacking three of his heavyweights. Catcher Elston Howard has undergone surgery to remove bone chips from his throwing arm and outfielder Roger Marls is out with a pulled hamstring muscle. I've revised my thinking in some respects. "I must say the Los Angeles Dodgers have surprised me. I didn't think they would be this many games above .500 at this stage of the race. However, they suffered a terrible blow when Tommy Davis broke his ankle. I think this is the biggest single factor in the race so far. It's bound to have a telling effect." During spring training, it was Bragan's contention that the St. Louis Cardinals and Philadelphia Phillies would be the teams to beat. Now the Cincinnati Reds loom up as the most formidable to him. "The Reds have the deepest pitching in the league," he said. "And they've got some hairy- chested guys up there at the plate, too." Bragan is convinced his club is better than it has looked. "We didn't have Henry Aaron the first two weeks of the season," he said. "He's back now and he's better than ever. He appears to have fully recovered from his ankle operation." Bragan said the biggest improvement on the club has been in the pitching department, especially in the bullpen. "Billy O'Dell and Dan Osinski have done a wonderful job for us, as well as Bob Tiefenauer. The bullpen presented us with our biggest problem last year. "Our starters have done well. Wade Blasingame, Bob Sadowski and Tony Cloninger have been great. Dennis Lemaster hasn't kept up with the others but he pitched well in his last start." The lame duck Braves, who will be playing in Atlanta next year, have performed before some of the smallest gatherings in Milwaukee's 12-year major league history. Not including the opener, which attracted about 34,000, the team has averaged under 3,000 a game at home. Had this had any effect on the players? "No," said Bragan emphatically. "A big audience is a stimulation regardless of whether you're at home or on the road but a real performer will perform to the utmost of his ability before 2,000 just as he will before 20,000." WMU Wallops Miami 17-6 KALAMAZOO (AP)—Western Michigan exploded for seven runs in the third inning and went on to clobber Miami of Ohio 17-6 in a Mid-American Conference baseball game Friday. The Broncos' Dave Anderson and John Klein led the attack as Western boosted its season record to 10-3 and its conference mark to 6-1. Anderson rapped three hits in four trips, including a 425-foot, inside-the-park homer in the seventh. He drove in two runs. Klein had two hits and four RBI's. Miami was held in check by Jim Johnson until the seventh when it picked up two runs. Miami added four more in the ninth. The loss put the Ohio team's season record at 10-10. They stand 3-4 in the MAC. The two teams meet again today at Kalamazoo.

(NBA Telephoto) For the record, the streamlined structure in Yanks Lose 2 Games to Senators, Drop Into 9th Place in AL Race By MURRAY CHASS Associated Press Sports Writer The New York Yankees, resembling anything but a team that is seeking an unprecedented sixth straight pennant, tumbled to ninth place Friday night, dropping a doubleheader to Washington 4-3 and 7-3. The double defeat left the Yankees with five defeats in their last six games and an 8-12 record, 6'/a games from the top and nine percentage points behind the eighth-place Senators. Startling is the Yankees' team average of .213. That's 10 points better than the Senators' mark but only one point above the worst batting mark ever recorded in major league history. The Chicago White Sox dipped that low in 1910. * * * Elsewhere in the AL Friday night, Chicago trounced Minnesota 13-5, Cleveland defeated Boston 5-1 and Los Angeles edged Kansas City 5-4 before losing 6-3. Rain washed out Detroit at Baltimore. In the National League, Pittsburgh nipped Cincinnati 5-4, Los Angeles edged San Francisco 43, St. Louis blanked Philadelphia 2-0 and Houston trimmed Chicago 5-4. Rain took care of Milwaukee at New York. Jim King won his third game in a week as a pinch hitter for the Senators, cracking a two- run homer in the seventh inning. That wiped out a 3-2 lead Clete Boyer gave the Yankees with a homer in the fifth. Ronnie Kline, in relief of Mike McCormick, set down a New York threat in the ninth. The Yankees led the nightcap 3-2 until the seventh when Washington exploded for five runs. Frank Howard drove in the first three with a bases-loaded triple off Pedro Ramos and scored on Woodie Held's homer. * * * Danny eater's three-run homer in the seventh inning was the deciding blow in Chicago's fifth straight victory. The blow erased a 5-4 Minnesota lead. Ron Hansen, Al Weis and Pete Ward also homered for the White Sox while Harmon Killebrew connected for the Twins, who contributed seven errors to Chicago's attack. Luis Tiant pitched a five- hitter as Cleveland handed the Red Sox their fourth straight defeat. Tiant lost his shutout in the eighth on doubles by Lennie Green and Dalton Jones. Leon Wagner singled in a Cleveland run in a three-run third and homered in the eighth. The Angels extended their winning streak to five' before losing the second game. Reliever Bob Lee came on in the seventh inning and saved Dean Chance's third victory. Willie Smith drove in three Los Angeles runs. Fred Talbot stopped the Angels in the nightcap with John Wyatt's relief help and belted a three-run triple in the fourth inning. Jim Gentile added two solo homers for Kansas City. Paul Schaal connected for Los Angeles. M-W's Meet Is Postponed The Michigan-Wisconsin Conference's annual track and field meet, which was scheduled for Friday afternoon at Ashland, had to be postponed because of the soggy condition of Northland College's new cinder track. Conf e r e n c e officials announced that the meet will be rescheduled for next Tuesday, May 11, at either Ashland or Bessemer, with the Besse m e r track being used if the Ashland track is not in suitable condition. Athletes from Ashland, Bessemer, Hurley, Ironwood and Wakefield are expected to compete in the meet. Ironwood is the defending champion. , Roman Is Not Worried About Being Cut From Tiger Squad BALTIMORE (AP) — Bill Roman, the Tigers' lanky rookie first baseman who is considered a likely candidate for the axe, says he is not worried about the prospect. Roman, an engineering graduate from the University of Michigan, hasn't, been able to engineer a hit in 17 trips this season, and the Tigers have to cut their squad by three to regulation size. Roman commented on his performance to date after a game between the Tigers and the Baltimore Orioles was was rained out Friday. The game was rescheduled for Sept. Two Foreigners Lead Colonial By JIM MANGAN FORT WORTH, Tex. (AP) — The Colonial National Invitational Golf Tournament moved into the third round today with two foreigners — Bruce Crampton of Australia and George Knudson of Canada — leading the pack with one-under-par totals of 139. Grouped at even par 140 were Ben Hogan, shooting for his sixth victory here; Tony Lema, Julius Boros and Gene Littler, who hasn't won a tournament since 1962. Bo Wininger, Jay Hebert and Gardner Dickinson were tied at 141, with Dave Marr, Bert Weaver, Doug Sanders, Jerry Edwards and Miller Barber next with 142s. Crampton's two-under-par 68 over the tough Colonial layout Friday moved him to the front after Knudson faltered from his first round pace and shot a one- over-par 71. The Australian had three birdies and a bogey in his round. Hogan proved Friday what he told newsmen Thursday — he was putting better than he had in years. The five-time Colonial winner sank putts up to 20 feet and had only one three-putt green. Tommy Bolt blew to a 78, which included a two-stroke penalty for delaying too long over a putt that stopped on the edge of the hole. Dow Finsterwald shot an 80 and withdrew. Arnold Palmer apparently faded out of contention by shooting a 74 and dropping eight strokes behind the leaders at 147. Rites Slated For J. Krebss DALLAS (AP) ~ Funeral services for Jim Krebs, who made basketball a major sport at Southern Methodist, will be held Monday at Highland Park Methodist Church. ' Krebs, 30, was killed Thursday by a falling tree in the Los Angeles suburb of Woodland Hills. He was helping a neighbor fell a tree. The neighbor, Robert Miller, said the tree toppled the wrong way and fell against the house. As they tried to remove it, the tree slid down and struck them. Miller was able to get free and summon help. Krebs, SMU's only All-America basketball player, led his team to three successive Southwest Conference championships in 1955, 1956 and 1957. The 6-8 star played professionally for the Lakers seven years. He had worked as a bank loan executive since bis retirement last year. 14 as part of a twi-night doubleheader. The two teams will try again tonight, though, for the second game of a series which also includes a doubleheader Sunday and a night game Monday. "It's the worst start I've ever had," Roman said Friday. "I mean, I've been in slumps before but never when I couldn't get a single hit. ' "I've hit some balls pretty well, but they have been caught That's the thing I notice the most. When you're in a slump in the minors and you're hitting the ball, you know that some o: them will fall in safely.' "But up here, the defenses are so much better that it's tough to get any cheap hits." The Tigers have to be down to 25 players by Tuesday, and Roman is aware of what it may mean for him. 'I'm concerned about it," he said. "But I'm more concerned with getting some hits." "Basically, I'm not doing any thing wrong at the plate," he added. "Im taking my norma swings. If anything, I've had to keep cautioning myself not to be too careful, but to keep swing- in my natural way." Standings By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS National League W. L. Pet.

Bauer Fret By GORDON BEARD Associated Press Writer BALTIMORE (AP) — Manager Hank Bauer is a bit fretful, but not discouraged, over the failure of his Baltimore Orioles pitching staff to get on the beam. "We don't plan any trades and we don't plan to bring anyone up from the minors," Bauer said Friday night after Baltimore's game against the Detroit Tigers was postponed by rain. "Our bullpen has been coming through lately," Bauer said, but we've been getting hurt by the starters in some games." Only veteran Robin Roberts, who has won his last four starts with complete-game efforts, has been effective for the Orioles. Lefty Steve Barber, a 20-game winner two years ago, has a fat 8.53 earned run average with a 1-2 record. Wally Bunker, who won 19 last season as a rookie; is 1-3 with a 9.00 ERA. The staff could get a big boost Sunday when Milt Pappas returns to action after being side lined with a knee injury, the latest in a long series of spring mishaps for the right-hander who was expected to be the big Oriole winner. After pitching a shutout in his first 1965 start, Pappas tripped over the bag while covering first base in his next outing on April 19. He has started only once since, and was bombed for five hits in one-third of an inning. Bauer said he was encouraged by the relief pitching of Stu Miller, Dick Hall and rookie Jim Palmer. But the Oriole manager indicated concern over Bunker's poor showing. "Bunker has been on and off all season," Bauer said, think his main trouble has been control. He's not keeping the ball low the way he did last year. "But if Pappas can come back, and Roberts keeps going the way he is, we'll be al right," Bauer said. day by pulling it out of Boston. They needed a stage quickly, whatever the size, to rescue heir closed circuit television committments around the coun- ry. Gov. John H. Reed of Maine stepped forward and within a 'ew hours the site was shifted to ihis community of about 41,000. The locale is now the Lewiston Youth Center, which seats 5,000 instead of Boston Garden with a 13,909 seating capacity. Lewiston is 140 miles north ol Boston and 30 miles from Port- and, Maine. Suffolk County Dist. Atty. Garrett Byrne had sought an injunction blocking the fight in Boston, charging Inter-Continental Promotions Inc. of Chester, Pa. was promoting the fight without a Massachusetts license. Inter-Continental said the promoter was local veteran Sara Silverman. The litigation was in its third day before Judge Felix Forts! Friday when attorney Paul T. : Smith, appearing for Inter-Con« tinental, announced to the court that "This case now has beeomal moot because the fight Is not going to be held in Boston." Asst. Dist. Atty. Jack Zalkind indicated the fight still could b« staged in Boston "under auspices other than Biter-Continental."

Silverman also is licensed to) promote boxing in Maine. Nicklaus Tries U.S. Open Course ST. LOUIS (AP) — Masters champion Jack Nicklaus flew into St. Louis Friday for a friendly round of golf with an old rival, but he took time out to warn entrants in the U.S. Open golf tournament. "The short hitters might jusi as well not show up," he said after shooting in the 70s on a windy day over the sprawling 7, 191-yard, par 70 Bellerive Coun try Club course. Bellerive will offer the open's longest test in history June 1420. "There are four to six par four holes that short hitters can't reach in two," he said For the power-hitting Nicklaus this would be ideal. He reachet the green in two on most of the 13, 400-plus yard holes. "I can see a 290 winning thi: tournament if conditions are adverse," he said. The round was one of four or five Nicklaus plans to play on the course before the tourna ment. U-M '9' Edges Gophers 7-0 ANN ARBOR (AP) — Michi gan's Carl Cmejrek clouted a one-out homer in the llth inning to give the unbeaten Wolverine a 1-0 Big Ten baseball victorj over Minnesota Friday.

Michigan Keeps Lead in Big Ten CHICAGO (AP) — Michigan's Wolverines remained undefeated in the Big Ten baseball race Friday when they scored their seventh straight victory in extra innings, but Ohio State stayed in the thick of the battle with another extra-inning triumph. Carl Cmerjrek clouted a home run in the bottom of the llth inning to give Michigan a 1-0 triumph over Minnesota, and Ohio State needed a two-run rally in the last of the 12th to edge Purdue 6-5. The victory was the sixth in seven games for Ohio State, leaving the Buckeyes a scant one game behind the Wolverines. Elsewhere, Michigan State edged Iowa 4-3 with a three-run rally in the ninth inning, Wisconsin scored 12 runs in the seventh to hammer winless Northwestern 20-7, and Indiana came from behind to blast Illinois 9-6. All of the teams are scheduled to play doubleheaders today with Illinois at Ohio State, Iowa at Michigan, Minnesota at Michigan State, Purdue at Indiana and Wisconsin at Northwestern. Trout Killed By Chemical LANSING (AP) — Moderate losses of trout during a chemical treatment to kill sea lampreys in the White River, Oceana County, were reported Friday by the State Conservation Department. Howard Tanner, chief of the fish division, said field checks showed first reports of a heavy kill were "greatly exaggerated." Tanner said there was some loss of brown trout, most of them small but a few as large as 18 inches. Suckers and minnows also were killed. A few rainbow trout and bass probably died as well, Tanner said. U. S. Fish and Wildlife crews are working on the river as part of a program to treat all lamprey-spawning streams running into Lake Michigan. Goal of the program is to bring the lamprey under control in the Great Lakes to enable the return of lake trout. Tanner said the chemical treatment normally does not harm trout. "I feel that we must be willing to accept some losses of trout and other fish as a small price to pay for contro of the lamprey," he said.
