EIGHT IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN FRIDAY, MAY 28,1965. Tigers' Sparma Stops Yanks 4-1 on Masterful 5-Hitter i Murler Has Come Long Way in '65 Nots Hands Chance His Worst Pummeling in Two Seasons By BERME KENNEDY Associated Press Sports Writer DETROIT (AP)—Joe Sparma has come a long way since spring training when he was just another pitcher for the Detroit Tigers trying to. make the grade. The fact that he almost didn't make the cut was one of Sparma's main topics of conversation Thursday night after he hurled a masterful five- hitter and beat the New York Yankees, 4-1. "I don't know how many times I heard or read that I was going to be sent to Syra> cuse," Sparma said. "I'm Just glad that I wasn't sent down and have a good chance to stay in the regular pitching rotation." Sparma explained his inconsistency in spring training by saying he felt he got a little tired after playing winter ball in Puerto Rico. * * * "It made for a long season," Sparma explained. "But I did leam to throw a better curve in Puerto Rico and I felt I had the best curve from a three- quarter motion out there tonight." Sparma came within an out of pitching a complete game against Baltimore last Saturday but didn't need any help against the Yankees as he struck out nine batters, top effort by a Detroit pitcher this year. "I didn't care that I lost the shutout when (Roger) Marts hit the home run in the ninth," Sparma continued. "I was happy to win. I pitched the ball right where I wanted it and he hit it That's all there was to it." Sparma remarked that it was the first game he had ever pitched in which he didn't walk a batter. "His big trouble is wildness," manager Bob Swift said. "If he gets some control, he can win 15 games every year and maybe 20 with a little luck." Sparma aided his own cause with a two-run double in the fourth inning. He scored later in the inning on a wild pitch. The Tigers scored a run in the first inning on singles by Don Weit, and AI Kaline. Wert reached second when he tagged up on a foul fly which was caught by Yankees catcher Doc Edwards who had to reach into the stands to grab it. Swift called Wert's maneuver the turning point of the game. Willie Horton followed Kaline's single with the first of his three singles. * * * Sparma retired the first 12 batters he faced. Mickey Mantle and Joe Pepitone fifth inning with By HAL BOCK Associated Press Sports Writer Dtd somebody ask what was wrong with Dean Chance? It's obvious. Just a serious case of outs. He can't seem to get many. Chance, the Cy Young Award winner last season, continued his 1965 slide Thursday, absorbing his worst pummeling in ,wo seasons as Washington battered Los Angeles 9-6. It was the fourth straight loss for Chance in just over two Terry are the scheduled starting pitchers for the first game of a three-game series between ;he Tigers and Cleveland Indian? tonight. opened the consecutive singles but Sparma struck out Tom Tresh and got Clete Boyer to hit into a double play. Tresh and Boyer singled with one out in the eighth but Sparma set down the next two hltterr. and kept out of trouble until Marts lofted his homer to left. Whitey Ford, who left the game after pitching the first inning, was tagged with his sixth loss in nine decisions Club officials said a circulatory ailment causes Ford to lose some of the feeling in his throwing hand in cold weather. Ford said he "just didn't have it."

(AP) — Villanova's powerful Wildcats and Maryland's Atlantic Coast Conference champions are expected to stage a repeat of their wintertime struggle in the 89th annual IC4A outdoor track It field championships today and Saturday. The indoor games last March weeks and left the Angel swifty with an inflated 4.72 earned-run average. The only thing swift about Chance against the Senators was the time it took Washington to knock him out. The Senators assaulted him for seven runs and eight hits in 2 2-3 innings. You have to go back to May 12, 1963, for a similar assault on Chance. That day he gave up five runs in 1 1-3 innings against the White Sox. Chance, who said he was worried after dropping his third straight, last week, must be terrified today following his nightmarish encounter with the Senators. Elsewhere in the American League, Boston dropped Minnesota out of first place, blanking the Twins 2-0 and Detroit tagged New York 4-1. Pittsburgh's game at Philadelphia was postponed by rain in the National League and Kansas City's visit to Baltimore was rained out in the AL. Chance has given 32 earned runs in his 11 appearances and has barely resembled the 20-9 pitcher he was a year ago. Dean started with three straight victories but has failed to win in his last five starts. A two-run triple by relief pitcher Marshall Bridges knocked Chance out in the third as tlie Senators exploded for six runs Joe Cunningham and Frank Howard homered for Washington with Howard's shot landing off the mezzanine 460 teet from home plate in D.C. Stadium. Whitey Ford, who had shut out the Senators for New York in his last start, quit after just one inning against the Tigers, saying simply that "he didn't have it." If Ford didn't have it, Detroit's Joe Sparma sure did. The young right-hander drove in two runs with a double and limited the Yankees to five hits with Roger Marts' two-out homer in the ninth spoiling the shutout bid. Tl?e Twins, who had eight homers and two victories in their first two games against the Red Sox in Fenway Park, ran into Dave Morehead. The youngster limited the heavy-hitting Twins to three hits until the ninth inning but got into a jam by loading the bases on three walks after striking out Harmon Killebrew to open the inning. Dick Radatz, ineffective in relief so far this season, lumbered out of the Boston bullpen and ended the threat by fanning pinch-hitters Don Mincher and Sandy Valdespino. GOING TO THE POLE—A. J. Foyt will be in the pole position for the Indianapolis "500" on Memorial Day after breaking all the qualify- ing records for the speedway with a 161.233 m.p.h. clocking. Foyt, Clark to Start Hub-to-Hub In 49th 500-Mile Race Monday went down to the before Villanova final event squeaked through by 2V& points. The Wildcats of Jumbo Jim Elliott are slim favorites to do it again and capture their sixth straight outdoor title and eighth in nine years. They have won seven of the last nine.indoor championships, the last four in a row. The only team given a chance besides Villanova and Maryland is Harvard, winner of the Heptagonal Games. Some 57 colleges from 12 Eastern states and the District of Columbia are entered.

By DALE BURGESS Associated Press Sports Writer INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Mr. James Clark Jr., O.B.E., a gentleman farmer of Duns, Scotland, and A. J. Foyt Jr., one of America's most distinguished high school dropouts, will start hub-to-hub in the 49th 500-mile Memorial Day auto race Monday, It will be a head-on clash of the top men in two fields — 31ark, 29, of the world road rac- ng circuit, Foyt, 30, of the U.S. Auto Club's closed courses. Clark made the Order of the British Empire on the queen's ast birthday honors list. All Foyt made was a quarter mil- ion dollars last year. * * * Beside them in the first row, earned by posting best speeds tn ;wo weekends of record-crack- ng time trials, will be handsome Dan Gurney, 34, interna- ;ional competitor from Costa Mesa, Calif. Gurney not only is a strong contender but also is godfather of the three British-American hybrid cars which will lead the 33-car running start about 11 a.m., EST, Monday. He promoted the original meeting of Colin Chapman of London, builder of the Lotus chassis, and Ford Motor Co. engineers, who provided a special V-8 engine. The winner of the half-million- dollar race has come from the first two rows in four of the last five years. Foyt won from a fifth place start last year and from seventh in 1961. Winner Rodger Ward, who missed the program this time, started second in 1962 and third in 1960. * * * Parnelli Jones, who will-start fifth or middle of the second row this time, both started and Finished in the first spot in 1963. He will sit between two outstanding newcomers Monday — Mario Andretti, native of Italy and now living in Nazareth, Pa., and Billy Foster of Victoria, B.C. The track's 10-mile qualifying record was bettered by Andretti, Clark and Foyt in the time trials but Foyt got it last at 161.233 m.p.h. Only the Scot and the USAC champion have ever turned laps over 160 at the 2V&- mile speedway. Clark, the 1963 world Grand Prix champion and No. 3 in the standings last year, finished only 33.84 seconds behind Jones in the controversial '63 Indianapolis race. Chapman tried to have Jones flagged off the course for spraying oil but officials refused.

The senior Republican on the potent House Interstate Com- nerce Committee, Eep. William L. Springer of Illinois, says he can't see how "you can get around calling Liston and Clay" testify when the committee holds hearings on chairman Oren Harris' bill to create a federal boxing commission. Harris has promised quick hearings on the bill. It would Include authority to forbid accounts of a fight to be carried in Trout Lakes Well Stocked The Michigan Department of Conservation reminded fis h e r men that with the warming up of ;he weather, streams are lowering to their normal level. Trout anglers are asked to make an attempt to fish the listed trout lakes. The department states that some of these lakes were stocked with trout several years ago and the lakes have hardly been fished. Test nets in these lakes show that trout in the 1820-inch class are in abundance and for information regard ing these lakes, fishermen are asked to write to their nearest district fish biologist. There are biologists located at Baraga, Crystal Falls, Escanaba and Newberry. Clay Dismisses 'Fix' Complaint CHICOPEE, Mass. (AP) According to heavyweight champion Cassius Clay, Sonny Liston "is too dull and too slow to be a fixer in a fight." With that, Clay dismissed complaints that the Clay-Liston title bout at Lewiston, Maine, Tuesday night was fixed. "Besides," he told a press conference Thursday at his pre- fight training camp, "if the fight had been fixed, Liston would have waited more than one round to make it look good." The talkative Clay wailed "I'm wrong regardless of wha actually happened." He said he hit Liston "flush with all of my 206 pounds and they hated to give me credit." He said, "Television can' show how solid a punch is thrown..." The champion, who heads for his Louisville home today, al ready is promoting his next bou although no arrangements for a bout have been announced. Mentioning Canadian George Chuvalo as a possible opponent Clay talked about a "white hope" being good for boxing. "There should be some white heavyweights in Europe as wel as in the country who could pro vide a challenge for me or anj heavyweight who becomes champion." Since in the last five or si> years, all of the title contender as well as heavyweight champi ons have been colored, he sai he thinks a white contende would be a good draw. He also said he would like t fight Ernie Terrell, recognize as heavyweight champion b ;he World Boxing Association adding: "I would eat him up."

Harris' bill was thrown into he hopper against a backdrop f widespread congressional riticism of heavyweight cham- ion Clay's one-round knockout f Liston Tuesday night in Lew- ston, Maine. In recent years, there have ieen many calls on Capitol Hill o do something about boxinf, but nothing has been done. This ime there appears to be a mood hat could force action. Rep. John V. Tunney, D- !alif., strapping son of former heavyweight champion Gene Tunney, said in a statement that he Clay-Liston fight was "another example of the reason hat boxing has fallen into such 11 repute in this country." Tunney and Rep. Henry B. Gonzalez, D-Tex., had earlier ntroduced bills to ban monopol- stic practices in boxing. The bills have been referred to the House Judiciary Committee. Rep. Robert Michel, R-I11., ntroduced a resolution Thursday to give the Judiciary Committee power to investigate box- .ng. Michel suggested there be no more heavyweight title fights until the probe is completed. Harris said his bill could serve as a basis for committee hearings to find out if it is the right approach to the problem or if another might be better. On the Senate side, Democrat Philip A. Hart of Michigan plans to introduce — possibly next week — the 1965 version of his bill to create the office of federal boxing commissioner and provide machinery to investigate controversial fights.

Last year's winner was Robert Menghini, member of the faculty of the Iron Mountain Public Schools. Romney Plants First Salmon TORCH LAKE (AP) — Gov. George Romney poured a golden pailful of fish into Torch Lake Thursday, launching a Stale Conservation Department program to bring salmon to Michigan. The fish - dunking ceremony took place at the mouth of Wilkinson Creek on the-northeast corner of Torch Lake in Antrim County. The Kokanee salmon being planted are a land-locked variety of the Sockeye salmon. The salmon eggs were obtained from Colorado and Washington, where the fish have provided exciting sports angling. Similar plantings will be made in Higgins Lake. It is hoped their offspring will stock other waters, including the Great Lakes. Romney was scheduled to return to Antrim County Saturday to participate in the dedication of the Jordan River Fish Hatchery. The $1.5 million facility will rear lake trout for restocking in the Great Lakes. Major League Stars By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS PITCHING — Joe Sparma.
