EIGHT IRONWOOD DAHY GLOBE, 1RONWOOD, MICHIGAN MONDAY, MAY 10,1965. 1 Injured Robinsons Deliver Game-Winning Hits Sunday Orioles' Brooks Frank's Single Gives Reds Win By MURRAY CHASS Associated Press Sports Writer It figured. Soon as Cincinnati Manager Dick Sisler needed a pinch hitter he called on Frank Robinson, the guy with the Most Valuable Thumb in the National League. Batting with a badly injured left thumb that has turned him into a part-time player, Robinson rapped a pinch single with the bases loaded in the ninth inning Sunday, driving in two pool then won the game in the ninth with a bases-loaded single. Torre, who socked two of his homers in the nightcap, got the Braves started in the opener with a two-run homer in the first inning. Mack Jones, who also homered in the second game, added a two-run homer and Denis Menke a three-run blast in support of Tony Cloninger's six-hitter. Home runs by Dick Stuart and Johnny Callison powered the Phillies past the Cardinals. Both came off Ray Sadecki, 0-4. Stuart's homer followed Richie Allen's triple in the first while Callison connected in the third. The Giants rallied for four runs in the eighth inning and handed Sandy koufax his sec- runs and giving the Reds a 5-3 O nd defeat against three victo- vJctory over Pittsburgh. The Cincinnati slugger batted —for the first time since Frl- ries. Jesus Alou singled across the tying run, and Ed Bailey sent home the decisive run with day night — despite a badly j a sacrifice fly. Juan Marichal swollen left hand stemming j singled in the final run and from the thumb injury he suf- rought his record to 5-2. fered a week ago against the New York Mets in the first game of a doubleheader. Robinson, the National League's Most Valuable Player in 1961, jammed the thumb diving back to first base before being picked off by Jack Fisher in* the fourth inning. He left the game for a pinch-hitter in the fifth. Scheduled to start Saturday, he was pulled from the line-up at the last minute. His insertion into the line-up Sunday came at the last minute, too — much to the anguish of the Pirates. Elsewhere in the NL, Chicago whipped Houston 7-1 after losing 11-5, Milwaukee dropped New York 8-2 before bowing 5-4, Philadelphia trimmed St. Louis 4-2 and San Francisco defeated Los Angeles 6-3. Robinson's winning hit climaxed the three-run rally that wiped out a 3-2 Pittsburgh lead. Pinch-hitter John Edwards singled across the tying run before Al McBean walked Leo Cardenas, filling the bases. Bob Veale replaced McBean, and Robinson drove in Marty Keough and Edwards. Ernie Banks homered twice and increased his major league- leading runs-batted-in total to 32 in Chicago's second - game triumph. Glenn Beckert and Don Landrum also homered for the Cubs. In the opener, Houston collected 18 hits for the second straight game with Rusty Staub driving in five runs on a homer and a double. John Bateman and Jim Wynn added homers for the Astros. Joe Torre slammed three Milwaukee homers, but the Braves could gain only a split with New York. The Mets deadlocked the second game with three runs in the seventh, the tying tally com ing home on a bases-loaded walk to Ed Kranepool.

Soon as Baltimore Manager Hank Bauer needed a pinch hitter he called on Brooks Robinson, the guy with the Most Valuable Thumb in the American League. Batting with a broken right thumb that is expected to keep him out of the starting line-up for about 10 days, Robinson slapped a pinchhit single in the 12th inning and scored the winning run as the Orioles completed a doubleheader sweep by edging Detroit 5-4 Sunday.

The meet Itimate for this thing." BALTIMORE (AP) — Crisis deepened today for the Detroit Tigers, sunk in an alarming losing streak, short on pitchers, and with their eastern trip threatening to be a flop. Sunday's doubleheader defeat by the Baltimore Orioles—third such two-ply setback in eight days for the Tigers—put interim manager Bob Swift in a painful position. Swift's team was below .500 for the first time after this season's promising start and he was forced to grope for a pitcher for tonight's fourth series game here. The Orioles, with injured Brooks Robinson leaving the bench to win the second game, clipped the Tigers Sunday, 7-1 on 13 hits in the opener and 5-4 in the extra inning nightcap. The second game went to the 12th inning 'before the verdict. Robinson, benched with a broken right thumb, singled off Fred Gladding as a pinch-hitter, took second on a hit batsman, and scored on Norm Siebern's single. * * * The defeats were the sixth and seventh in the last eight games for Detroit. The Tigers' immediately previous doubleheader defeats were by the Boston Red Sox a week ago Sunday and by the Chicago White Sox Wednesday. Robinson, who played only four innings of Sunday's first game, suffered the thumb fracture when hit by Hank Aguirre in Saturday's 15-inning game won by Al Kaline's home run.

They will, however, because ,he mighty Matson, who warms up for the shot put with 68-foot hrows, already is ranked with Hercules, Sandow and others of that ilk. Not by Matson, though. He gives the impression of being awed by the feats of others but not having too much confidence in himself. "I need a rest so I can work with the weights and build up my strength," he said after he had thrown the shot five times and the shortest was 67 feet, 9 inches. "And I need more speed across the ring." His opponents, Jim Lancaster of Baylor, for instance, proba- Dly think Randy needs mora strength about like the Empire State Building.

Matson must be wondering what he will be able to do when lie has reached his growth. He is only 20 and is a sophomore in college. "I have been 6 feet, 6'/a ever since high school," said Matson, acting like he feared he might turn out to be a runt, at least among the Giants.

Promoters Figure They Have Converted Ban Into Bonanza LEWISTON, Maine (AP) — While local reaction ranges from disbelief to delight, backers of the transplanted Cassius Clay-Sonny Listen heavyweight title fight May 25 figure they've converted the Boston ban into a bonanza. From Gov. John H. Reed on down, leading public figures and businessmen welcome the world championship event with open arms. Some other citizens still can't figure how the community of 41,000 suddenly is a focal point of the sports world. It happened of course when legal entanglements and an effort to have the bout banned in Boston left Inter-Continental Promotions Inc. and Sports- vision, which handles the closed circuit television rights, too little time. They could afford no more uncertainties. So they decided between Bangor and Lewiston, settling on the latter which is closer to Boston, 140 miles to the south. The site, instead of Boston Garden with its 13,909 capacity, is the Lewiston Youth Center where fire laws restrict seating to 3,- 000. But efforts are being made to expand it to slightly over 5,000. One Inter-Continental spokesman says Dist. Atty. Garrett Byrne in Boston who sought an injunction banning the fight "may have done us a big favor. It looks as though we'll do better financially here than In Boston." The spokesman said the rent of the building is $225,000 less than in Boston and the taxes $116,000 lower. "With the fight out of Boston we open up another big city for the closed-circuit TV, and that's where we'll make our money," the spokesman continued. While state officials estimated the fight will mean $1 million or more in business and publicity, some folks wondered how to house and feed the many visitors expected. The whole thing still is a puzzle to some of the residents, however. Says one: "I don't know, why us? I mean, Lewiston Is really nothing. We're out in the sticks. A fight like this belongs in a big town and in a big building." Phil Regan was driven out after two innings and Ed Rakow, brought up recently from the minors to aid a sagging mound staff, worked only one. The only Tiger run resulted from Dick McAuliffe's second double in the eighth and two infield outs. * * * Rookie outfielder Jim Northrup's misjudging of a fly ball helped Baltimore tie the score 4-4 with two runs in the seventh inning of the second game. With one run in, Northrup misgauged Lui Aparicio's liner. The drive went for a triple. Jerry Adair scored from second on the blow. Gladding, relieving in both games, came to the mound in the 12th of the second contest and was charged with the defeat. Regan was charged with his third straight loss in the opener. The Tigers had a chance for victory in their own half of the 12th of the nightcap. A hit and two walks loaded the bases with two out. But pinch-hitter Gates Brown struck out.
