And he didn't say this just because McAuliffe delivered a two-run, tenth-inrflng homer to give the Tigers a 9-8 victory over Washington Thursday. "I said it in spring training and I'll say it again," Swift asserted. "He's making the plays in the field he wasn't making last year and he is not letting a hitting or fielding slump bother him. "When his hitting fell off for a while, he kept plugging away. Even when he had that lapse in the field—five errors in two games—he was hitting the ball," Swift said. Swift said the reason for McAuliffe's fast start is "he's Tiger Wants to Fight Giardello NEW YORK (AP) — "Tell Joe Giardello I'm going to call him about that title fight," said Nigeria's Dick Tiger after he floored Rubin Carter and soundly drubbed him in a 10-rounder Thursday night. The 35-year-old African, who lost his middleweight crown to Giardello 17 months ago, planned to telephone Giardello this afternoon for a definite yes or no. Tiger made a strong bid for the title shot with his lop-sided win over the 28-year-old Jersey Jolter who lost narrowly to Giardello in a title fight last December. Dick dropped the Paterson, N.J., contender twice in the second round, once in the fourth, and had him in trouble in most of the other rounds. After the second it was no contest, except for one Hurry by Carter in the seventh. The officials voted for Tiger by the following scores by rounds: judge Jimmy Riccio, 91, judge Johnny Dran 8-1-1 and referee Zach Clayton, 6-2-2. The Associated Press had Tiger ahead 9-1. Tiger weighed 163 and Carter 159. Tiger's record is 51-14-3. Carter's record is 23-8. Hull Named NHL's MVP MONTREAL (AP) — Bobby Hull of the Chicago Black Hawks has been named the most valuable player in the National Hockey League for the 1964-65 season. The dynamic left wing, who scored 39 goals last season was picked by sports writers and sportcasters in the six NHL cities and won the Hart Trophy, emblematic of the honor, by a slim seven points over Detroit's Norm Ullman. Hazel Park 'Double' Payoff Sets Record HAZEL PARK (AP) — The twin double at Hazel Park Race Track Thursday shattered the previous high, paying one bettor $44,053.80 for his $2 investment. Bright Season ($30.20), Long Drawers ($41.20), Sir Am ($29) and Dynamite, Jr. ($7.80) made up the record breaking combination. The Daily Double of Pin Deck ($13.60) and Pleasant Pasture ($20.80) paid $184.80. Thursday's handle was $745,786. The identity of the twin double winner is not known. The winner failed to show up at the cashier's window after the race to claim his money. CMU Is Favored in League Track Meet NORMAL, HI. (AP)—Defending champion Central Michigan is rated a slight favorite to repeat for the Interstate Conference track championship today and Saturday. The Chippewas have power in the field events but lack the running depth which carried them to a 32-point margin over Eastern Illinois in the 1964 meet. Eastern is a strong challenger this time. more aggressive and has a different attitude." McAuliffe, who boosted his batting average to .317, said he was looking for a high pitch when he stepped in against loser Marshall Bridges. "When he pitched to me Wednesday night, he threw a couple of wide ones, trying to make me go after them," McAuliffe said. "But when he fell behind, he came in with a high pitch. When tiis first pitch was a ball today, I figured he'd have to come in and it was right there—high and fast." McAuliffe added he was looking for the home run because he felt Bridges, who entered te game in the tenth inning, might have been a little tight. Jack Hamilton, the fifth Detroit pitcher in the wild, free- swinging contest, was credited with the victory. He faced, one batter, Woodie Held, and got him to fly to center. The Tigers jumped to a 4-0 lead in the first inning, featuring a leadoff homer by Jake Wood and a two-run triple by Jim Northrup. But Detroit twice battled back to win. Held, Ed Brinkman, Don Zimmer, Frank Howard and Don Lock each hit a homer for Washington. Howard's solo shot off Larry Sherry triggered a two-run rally in the Washington ninth. Lock's pinch-homer put the Senators ahead again in the top of the tenth. Zlmmer's homer in the seventh finally chased Detroit starter Mickey Lolich who averted an earlier departure when the Tigers pulled three double plays in the first five innings. Northrup walked to open the Detroit tenth and was forced at second by George Thomas, setting the stage for McAuliffe's winning blow. Tiger injuries and the use of Gates Brown as a pinch-runner forced Swift to play Ray Oyler at first base in the final inning. Oyler, normally a shortstop, said he had never played there before "but I told Bob I could play anywhere." The Tigers open a four-game weekend series with Baltimore tonight.

In addition to Pronovost, left- winger Larry Jeffrey, center Eddie Joyal and minor leaguers Art Erickson and Lowell MacDonald went to the Leafs.

Then came a battle betwen Central and Norrie for third as Cen t r a 1 edged Norrie by one point 9-8. Two records fell by the wayside in the meet, both broken with an outstanding performance by Newport's Mike Shea who set a new grade s c h o.o 1 broad jumping record of 18 feet 6 inches, erasing the old mark of 17-3 set by Mike Palmgren of Sleight in the 1964 meet. Shea also went into the record books as the holder of a new pole vault record as he vaulted to a height of 10 feet 3 inches. The old record was held by Steve Dudra of Newport at a height of 9-91/2 and was set in the 1964 meet. Besides the two second-setting performances, Shea also won the shot put with a throw of 41-%.

Final 500-Mile Race Trials Set INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Drivers and owners of cars not yet qualified for the 500-mile race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway May 31 roll the racers out today for the final practice session before the last weekend of qualifications. There was no more practice scheduled for Parnelli Jones of Torrance, Calif., winner of the 1963 race, who injured himself slightly and smashed his No. 98 Hurst Lotus-Ford Thursday. X rays showed Jones had no fractures, but doctors planned to look him over again today. Qualification was no concern for Jones and Owner J.S. Agajanian of Gardena, Calif. Jones qualified the car last Saturday at 158.625 miles an hour. Agajanian said his crew would have the car ready to run by race day. He said the accident was caused by failure of some part in the rear suspension. The countdown was approaching zero for the two score entrants which have not qualified for the race. Only the 33 fastest cars in two weekends of time trials will start the race. Twenty-one cars made their qualification runs last weekend, and the rest have only Saturday and Sunday to try to make the line-up.

For the first time since opening day, the upper stands at County Stadium were open to accommodate the large crowd that turned out to cheer Spahn, who was unceremoniously sold to the Mets last season after 20 years with the Braves. But the 44-year-old Spahn showed his age while the 21- year-old Blasingame showed his stuff. Some of the stuff was taught by Spahn, who tutored the young southpaw when he was called up from Denver in mid- June last season. Blasingame applied the lessons quickly and posted a 9-5 record. However, he had only a 2-4 record going into Thursday night's game but took that opportunity to put his best pitches forward while Spahn was drubbed in a seven-run fifth-inning uprising that included a grand-slam homer by Eddie Mathews, his teammate of 13 years. Spahn was out of the game when Swoboda collected the Mets' only hit on a grounder back through the middle that Blasingame said he should have been able to get. Meanwhile, unbeaten Bob Gibson won his eighth game as the St. Louis Cardinals whipped Philadelphia for their seventh victory in eight games, Gordy Coleman lifted his average to a National League-leading .416 with four hits in Cincinnati's 113 thumping of Pittsburgh and Willie Mays hit homer No. 15 in San Francisco's 2-0 victory over the Chicago Cubs. The Los Angeles Dodgers and Houston were not scheduled. Spahn, now 3-4, had allowed only two hits when Rico Carty triggered the seven-run fifth with a double. Gene Oliver's double scored Carty before singles by Frank Boiling and Sandy Alomar and a walk produced another run and left the bases filled. Mathews proceeded to clear them with the seventh grand slam of his career and his eighth homer of the season. The Cardinals made it easy for Gibson, shelling five Phillie pitchers for 13 hits, including homers by Curt Flood and Phil Gagliano. Flood drove in four runs with a two-run homer and a double as St. Louis chased Chris Short and pushed across seven runs in the first two innings. , Gibson went into the ninth with a four-hit shutout but lost it when Tony Gonzalez hit a homer following a walk to John Briggs. Coleman took over the batting lead from Mays by stroking four singles in five trips. Vada Pinson slugged a homer and two singles, drove in three runs, scored three and stole a base as the Reds punched out 14 hits against Bob Friend and four successors. Samrny Ellis got the victory for a 6-1 record, limiting the Pirates to seven nits. Mays ended a scoreless tie in the seventh inning by leading off with a homer against Cubs starter Larry Jackson. Bob Shaw got the victory with reliel help from Masanori Murakami after holding Chicago to six hits through seven innings.

Tebbefts Finds Pitching to Go With Hitting By HAL BOCK Associated Press Sports Writer Cleveland Manager Birdl* Tebbetts, whose strong suit with the Indians this season was sup. posed to be hitting, has sudden* ly found some pitching to go with his punch. Tebbetts' staff has permitted just five runs In the last tour games, the latest a 5-2 victory over Baltimore Thursday night that completed a three-gam* sweep of the Orioles. Sonny Slebert, whose 4-1 record and 2.43 earned-run average is second best on the Indian staff, stifled the Orioles on six hits going into the ninth. When Baltimore threatened, Gary Bell came on to strike out rookie flash Curt Blefary with two on, ending it. Fred Whltfield's two-run homer capped a four-run Cleveland second Inning against Baltimore starter Dave McNally. After that, Siebert took over. Elsewhere in the American League, Mel Stottlemyre celebrated the birth of his second son by beating the Boston Red Sox 6-3 for New York and Detroit shaded Washington 9-8 in 10 innings. Ralph Terry, scheduled to open the series against Boston tonight, is Cleveland's leading pitcher with a 4-1 mark and a 2.42 ERA. Bell with a 1-1 record and 2.57 ERA for 12 relief roles, is the top man in tho bullpen. The Indians' off-season trading activity was aimed at getting some hitting to supplement Leon Wagner. They acquired Rocky Colavito and Chuck Hinton and seemed set in the power department. Terry, however, was the only new pitcher on the club. Sophomore Luis Tiant started Cleveland's latest surge with a 7-3 victory over. Washington Sunday. Jack Kralick and Don McMahon blanked Baltimore 10 on Tuesday and Sam McDowell shut out the Orioles 2-0 on Wednesday. Stottlemyre got the news of his son's birth early Thursday and then went out and beat the Red Sox with ninth-inning help from Pedro Ramos. Joe Pepitone and Tom Tresh tagged two-run homers with Pepitone's shot in the third inning climaxing a four-run burst against Red Sox starter Bill Monbouquette. Ramos came on with two on and one out in the ninth and got out of the jam with a double play. It was his fourth save and only the sixth for the Yankee staff this year. Dick McAuliffe's two-run homer in the 10th gave Detroit its victory and offset five Wash* ington homers. Don Lock'a pinch homer in the 10th had given the Senators the lead before a walk and McAuliffe's shot broke it up in the bottom half. Frank Howard, Woodie Held, Don Zimmer and Ed Brinkman had homered earlier for the Senators.
