THURSDAY, MAY 13,1965. IRONWOOD DAILY CLOU, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN Killebrew Again Leads Twins to Win Over Angels By DICK COUCH That was no pop-gun Harmon Killebrew used on the Angels the second time around. The Minnesota slugger beat Los Angeles 4-3 Wednesday night with his second home run of the game, a 450-foot, two-run shot in the eighth inning. The night before he had given the Twins a 3-2 victory over the Angels by caroming a drive off pitcher Dean Chance's leg in the ninth to send home the winning run. The victory, fifth straight for the Twins and 18th in 23 starts this year, kept them in first place in the young American League race, one-half game ahead of the Chicago White Sox, who swept a twi-night doubleheader from Kansas City 7-4 and 6-4. Boston blanked the New York Yankees 2-0, Detroit topped Washington 5-2 and Baltimore beat Cleveland 4-2 in oth- Torre Sparks Milwaukee to 5-4 Triumph Over Pirates By MIKE RATHET Associated Press Sports Writer A couple of years ago the only thing slim about Joe Torre was his chance of making the majors. Now, however, the only thing fat about the Milwaukee catcher is his batting average and the offer the Braves turned down for his services. Torre lifted his average to .347 Wednesday night with a homer and a single, helping Milwaukee to a 5-4 victory over Pittsburgh while continuing to show why the Braves refused he New York Mets' offer to buy him for $500,000. As a teen-ager with his eyes on the majors,' Torre was in eopardy of being overlooked by major league scouts, which would have been quite an accomplishment since he weighed 240 pounds and lacked speed. Speed of foot still isn't Torre's main dish, but it's hard to fault a guy who trimmed his weight to 205 and last season lifted his average to .321 with 20 homers and 109 runs batted in. And this year's current .347 average goes along with seven homers and 14 er night action. * *. Killebrew's decisive homer off Angel reliever Bob Lee cleared the center-field fence, scored Frank Kostro, who had walked, and pulled the Twins from behind. Killebrew had ripped a left-field circuit clout off rookie southpaw Rudy May, the Angels' starter, in the sixth. The homers were the fourth and fifth for Harmon in his last 11 games after an anemic start. Killebrew led the majors with 49 homers last year and has led ;he league three straight seasons. Los Angeles built. a 3-2 edge going into the eighth on Albie Pearson's first-inning homer, Jose Cardenal's sacrifice fly and a third-inning run-scoring single by Joe Adcock — the 1,- 700th major league hit for the veteran first baseman — in the sixth. Jerry .Kindall singled home the first Minnesota run in :he third. Pete Ward's two-run homer in :he seventh inning of the Chicago-Kansas City opener put the White Sox ahead to stay 5-4. Dick Green had put the A's on top with a grand-slam homer in the fifth. Don Buford, who also hom- RBI. While Torre was continuing •red for the Sox in the first game, singled in one run and Floyd Robinson's pop-fly single .delivered another, in a sixth- Inning rally that decided the nightcap. The Kansas City runs Tourney Opens At New Orleans NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Jack's Pack and Chi Chi's Ban- ditos collide today as the $100,000 greater New Orleans Open Golf Tournament gets under way with the beefy Ohioan and the pint-sized Puerto Rican playing in the same threesome. Masters champ Jack Nicklaus is the 6-1 choice to win the rich tourney at the plush 6,500-yar3 Lakewood Country Club course, but a number of the pros say Chi Chi Rodriguez is the man to beat. The 5-foot-7 Rodriguez, who weighs a mere 120 pounds, is or a hot streak and has finished high in the tourneys preceding this one. At the rain-plagued Colonial National Invitational, which wound up Tuesday, Chi Chi tied for third with three others. The pluckish Latin chatters constantly with the gallery while playing and some of the other pros complain about it. Not so with Nicklaus, who will play with Chi Chi and tour regular Rod Funseth both today and Friday. "It doesn't bother me," said Nicklaus. "In fact, I find he keeps me loose." Chi Chi has earned $12,315 so far this year on the tour and put on a blazing stretch drive just two weeks ago in the Tournament of Champions and nearly caught up with Arnold Palmer. Arnie's army will be here, too, as Palmer renews his rivalry with Nicklaus for the fairways crown. A victory for Palmer here would pull him much closer to Nicklaus in the earnings list. Nicklaus with $34,400 in official money, has won twice as much as Palmer. tils heavy hitting, Ron Santo oelted a homer and two singles In the Chicago Cubs' 7-3 wallop ing of San Francisco, Cincinnati edged Philadelphia 4-3, the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated Houston 4-2 and the New York Mets downed St. Louis 2-1.

Santo was the big gun for the Cubs, rapping three of the five Chicago hits off Giant ace Juan Marichal in the seven innings he worked. Marichal lost his third game against five victories as San Francisco committed four errors behind him. The Reds broke through against the Phillies, who had tied the score 2-2 on Richie Allen's homer, with a two-run seventh-inning comeback triggered by Tommy Harper's triple. A walk to Frank Robinson, Gordie Coleman's sacrifice fly and a double by Deron Johnson wrapped it up. Sammy Ellis got the victory for a 5-0 record with Jim O'Toole's relief help. Don Drysdale limited the Astros to six hits, including Walt Bond's homer in the ninth, while Ron Fairly provided the decisive blow for the Dodgers with a two-run single in the third inning that broke a 1-1 tie. Jim Lefebvre chipped in with a homer for Los Angeles. Jack Fisher checked the Cardinals on five hits and outdueled Curt Simmons for the Mets' triumph. Simmons absorbed his fourth loss in five decisions when Ron Swoboda walked in the seventh inning and scored on a double by Bobby Klaus. The Cardinals had pulled into a tie in their half on Ken Boyer's homer. horsemen agreed that the robust bay colt is far superior to his contemporary 3-year-old pacers.

BALTIMORE (AP) Ken- Mets' Star Has Surgery NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Mets expect little, if any, help from Ron Hunt, their hard- luck All-star second baseman, for the remainder of the National League baseball season. While Hunt convalesced today following a successful iVfe-hour operation on his dislocated left shoulder, the club waited for Chuck Hiller, acquired from San Francisco Wednesday as a second base replacement, to arrive in New York.
