Prick's Successor Might Not Be Named for Several Months By JOE REICHLER , Associated Press Sports Writer! DEARBORN, Mich. (AI-M — | John E. Fetzer, a member of[ the special two-man committee assigned the job of screening nominees for baseball commissioner, said today he did not expect a successor to Ford Prick to be named for at least several months. "I don't feel there is a chance in the world," said the owner of the Detroit Tigers, "of anyone being ramed short of considerable time for further investigation." The 20 club owners of the American and National Leagues were scheduled to meet separately today to discuss the commissionership before going into joint session for their annual midsummer meeting Thursday to.consider several amendments to baseball's laws. "The position of a commis- sioner it- so important to ball and to the public that this i ; a decision that should be ax- rived at only after thorough ii vestigation and meticulous sideration. "The job is one of such ove all magnitude that not only th. qualifications and backgrouridu of the candidates must be studi^ ed out careful consideration must be given to many otheaspects: such as personality.^ age, and public relations consciousness," Fetzer said. Fetzer, along with John Gai breath of the Pittsburgh F**. rates, in four months screening have cut down the list of candi_ dates from "between 40 and 5« to about 20." "After we make our sugges tions after the meetings we wiJL await further instructions," sai.c Fetzer, who added that neither he nor Galbrcalh has made recommendations of his own.

It still takes! •a three-quarters vote of the owners to do anything. "But unless complications arise.'

Detroit Blanks Senators by 2-0 By BERME KENNEDY Associated Press Sports Wirier DETROIT iAP) — Detroit pitcher Dave Wickersham said Manager Charlie Dressen's faith in him helped him endure his 97-ciay wait between pitching victories for the Tigers this season. Wickersham, a 19-game winner last year, limited the Washington Senators to four singles in a 2-0 triumph Tuesday night. "I've got to give Dressen a lot of credit for hanging in there with me." Wickersham said. "I /eally think I pitched well all season but our guys just weren't getting the breaks," Wickersham explained. "Every- time someone got the thick part of the bat on the ball, it would be hit right to someone." Wickersham defeated the Minnesota Twins in his first start back on April 15. *• * * He nad 13 starting assignments since, but never could get his second victory and carried the eight-game losing streak into the game against the Senators. "I remember saying back in spring training that I would be happy to win just five games if this club would win the pennant, ' Wickersham recalled. "Believe me, I was beginning to wonder if I would ever reach that figure. I've still got a long way to go." Wickersham got all the runs he needed in the fourth inning when Willie Horton hit his 21st home run following a walk to Al Kaline The homer, off Washington loser Howie Koplltz, hit the second denk screen In front of the bleachers in left-center. "That's the nicest home run I've seen this year," Wickersham beamed. "I saw a couple of nice ones that (Don Demeter hit last year. "You know," Wickersham added as an afterthought, "it sure is nice to see the reporters at this end of the clubhouse again.' Dresoen. who has not started Wickersham since he lost on July 4, said he couldn't think of a better time for the tall right- hander to get back on the beam. "We're coming to a part of our schedule where it is going to be a lot easier to work with five starters than with four," Dressen spid. * * *• "The big difference in Wickersham today was that he was throwing strikes and they had to swing." During the All-star break, coach Bob Swift continued the drills started by Dressen to get Wickerrham to work on his slider. Wickersham and a few other Tigers drilled on the day of the All-Star game. "Koplitz pitched a good game out there," Wickersham said "It was a tough one for him to lose. I was getting to be somewhat of an expert on tough losses." Washington posed only two scoring threats in the game. Don Blasingame singled and took second on Demeter's error in the fourth but never got any further. In the seventh, Frank Howard singled with one away and Dick Nen got the second, and last walk issued by Wickersham. But Ken McMullen popped out and Don Lock became Wickersham's seventh strikeout vic- tin and the threat was over. Two other would-be Detroit rallies were squelched when Al Kaline and Norm Cash lined into double plays. The Tigers were scheduled to ! play nost to the Cleveland In- I clians in a twi-night cloublehead- ! er today. WASHINGTON Haman ss Bl's'ame 2b ....

Blitzen Sails To Easy Victory MACKINAC ISLAND, Mich. (AP) — In her 28 seasons on the Great Lakes, the Milwaukee cutter Blitzen has taken mahy a sailing race trophy. The 56-fopter, co-skippered by brothers Bill and Tom Schoendorf, picked off another Tuesday in capturing the 58th annual Chicago to Macklnac classic. Blitzen, leader for almost the entire 333 miles from Chicago to the Straits of Mackinac finish line, came in with more than a two-hour margin over the best of her 114 rivals. Because of almost constant winds, Tom Schoendorf said the Blitzen had the "very unusual" experience of needing no change in sails until almost the very Lake Michigan. Blitzen, well in the lead changed for the first time in the vicinity of the straits Bridge seven miles from the finish. Then, with the race won, she sat in the water or an hour and "watched the cars go by" while waiting for other boats to appear, Schoendorf said. Blitzen's elapsed time of 606 hours, 49 minutes and 50 seconds was about average for the race. Her corrected time was 58:02.52. Tlie Gypsy, Milwaukee sloop owned and skippered by Charles Kotovich, was given second place on corrected time of 60:12.40 as against the 62:17.08 of the scratch boat Mitena, syndicate-owned Macatawa, Mich sloop. Gypsy's elapsed time was 64:14.12. Hurler Qualifies As Big Mystery By HAL BOCK Associated Press Sports Writer You've heard of 90-day won-j ders, Well, Detroit's Dave Wick-| ersharn qualifies as a 97-day I mystery. Wickersham pitched a neat four-hitter beating Washington 2-0 on Willie Horton's 21st homer of the season Tuesday night. It was the kind of performance Tiger Manager Chuck Dressen had come to expect of the young right-hander last season when he called him "the best pitcher I've got." I Wickersham was all that and more, winning 19 games for Detroit against 12 losses in 1964 Then in spring training, Dave made an off-the-cuff remark that seemed to leave him jinxed this year. He said he'd be happy to win just five games if the Tigers would win the pennant. After beating Minnesota 6-4 on April 15, Wickersham started 13 more games before finally winning anothe 1 ' game. It was 97 days of futility The shutout left Wickersham with a 2-8 mark and lowered his inflated earned run average from 4 98 to 4.54. It was his first shutout since he pitched 10 innings of an 11-inning 1-0 victory over the Yankees June 26, 1964. Elsewhere In the American League, Baltimore clipped Cleveland 6-1, New York topped Boston 6-3 and Los Angeles walloped Minnesota 9-1. In the National League, Milwaukee trounced New York 7-1, St. Louis edged Philadelphia 4-3, Pittsburgh topped Cincinnati 86, San Francisco blanked Chicago 2-0 and Los Angeles edged Houston 3-2. Russ Snyder and Boog Powell whacked two-run homers giving the Orioles their first victory over the Indians in six tries at Cleveland. Dave McNally pitched the six-hitter with Chuck Hlnton's 10th homer of the year in the ninth inning spoiling the shutout. Mel Stottlemyre won his 10th game of the year for New York and belted an inside-the-park grand slam homer in the fifth inning to provide most of the Yankee runs. New York had loaded the bases on two walks and an infield hit against Boston starter Bill Monbouquette when Stottlemyre connected. Tony Koubek also homered for New York. Bobby Knoop's four hits paced a 15-hit Los Angeles attack that buried Minnesota. Knoop drove in three runs as Marcelino Lopez coasted to his 10th victory of the year with a four-hitter. Willie Smith homered for the Angels By MURRAY CIIASS Associated Press Sports Writer That Los Angeles Dodger sluggei is at it again. He ccrtinned his torrid nltting streak Tuesday night, driving In the winning run in the Dodgers' 3-2 triumph over Houston. Until recently he was disguised as the major leagues leading pltchet There is a growing suspicion, however, that Sandy Koufax also is one of the best clutch hitters. The 29-year-old southpaw snapped a 2-2 deadlock by singling across Jim Lefebvre with two out In the ninth inning He alsc pitched a three-hlttei for his Utb straight victory and Lions, Hustlers Triumph in FL In Ironwood Farm B a s eball League action Tuesday morning, the Lions slipped by the Twins 5-4 in the first gnme andj the Hustlers beat the Bombers! 6-3 in the second game of a i doubleheader at Rsinda Field. I With the score 5-1 going into j the third stanza, thp Twins made; three more runs on a number of walks putting a threat oni the Lions' lead. After the Twins j retired the side in the bottom of the third inning, the Twins only hit one single in their last chance to take the Lions. The winning piu-.her was P. Anderson with 11 strikeouts and the losing pitcher was L. Kirkley with nine strikeouts j A. Erickson belted a homer! for the Lions. i The Hustlers ou'hit the Bombers through the whole second game wtlh Heikkala doing an < excellent job on the hill. Thei Hustlers scored two runs in thej first inning and four runs in the third stanza, while the Bom b-; ers scored one run in the first; and two runs in the fourth o n ! a triple by L. Johnson j Heikkala, the winning pitcher,! struck out 11 and gave up two! hjts, while the los.'ng pitcher K. Evanstad, struck out seven Evanstad also belted a triple for the Bombers. 17lh over-all against three defeats. Koufax set up the Astros for the winning blow by a slmplt game ol decoy — he grounded into an inning-ending double play 'ii the third inning, struck out with a man on In the sixth and ha Into another rally-killing double play with the bases loaded in tr.e seventh. In other National League games, Pittsburgh trimmed Cincinnati 8-6, San Francisco blanked Chicago 2-0, Milwaukee whipped New York 7-1, and St. Louis nipped Philadelphia 4-3. Bob Bailey led the Pirates past Hit Reds, rapping three hits, including a grand slam homer, and driving in five runs.

Bob Shaw held the Cubs hitless for seven Innings, then gave up a lnadoff single to Ron Santo in the eighth. Shaw, now 9-6, wound up with a two-hitter. Willie McCovcy socked his 20th homer for San Francisco. Milwaukee scored seven runs in the seventh Inning for its eighth straight victory.

(AP> — As mator league baseball deals go. it was a minor transaction, but It was anything but minor to the two utility players involved, Gary Kolb and Jesse Oonder. Kolb 25, an outfielder who can also play any infield position and catch, had to fight back the tears in the Milwaukee dressing room Tuesday. He had just learned he had been sold to the last place New York Mets in a deal that sent Oonder. ?9. a catcher, on waivers to the Braves "I think this club has a real good shot at the pennant," said Kolb after getting the news from Braves' Manager Bobby Bragan. "At this time of the year It's tough leaving them." The third-place Braves had just WOP their eighth straight game, defeating the Mets 7-1. It was the 10th straight loss for the Mets, Neither Gonder nor Kolb saw action in their last game for theii old. teams, although both were in uniform. Kolb had been traded once before. The St. Louis Cardinals sent him to Milwaukee in exchange for catcher Bob Uecker prior to the 1964 season. "Maybe they are trying to tell me something," Kolb commented on the rueful personal prospect of being traded off a potential pennant-winning team for the second straight season. The Cardinals won the pennant last year. The Braves are hoping Gonder will come through as a pinch hitter and the left-handed hitting Gonder is hoping the Braves will win the pennant.
