EIGHT IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, I RON WOOD, MICHIGAN FRIDAY, JUNE 11, IMS. 10 Lettermen Form Nucleus For Iron wood Baseball Team Red Devils Hope To Retain Title Pirates Post 18th Win in 20 Games; Marichal Blanks Mets Ten returning lettermen supply the backbone for what Ironwood Coach Wayne Melchiori hopes will be a repeat of last year's powerful team that captured the Western Upper Peninsula High School League championship. The Red Devils, who won the 1964 league crown with a 9-1 record, have been working out at Monarch Field for the p a s t week and a half and hopes are high that the squad will be at least in the running for this year's title. A total of 16 candidates have reported to the practice s e s - sions and they include: Seniors, Robert Miklesh, F r ank Verbos, Bill McDonald, and Joe Kravetz; juniors, Russ Willson, Paul Carlson, Art Fertile, Ed Tafelski and Dave McRea, sophomores, Don Koivisto, Jim Willson, Tom Eckstrom, Ed Koslovich and Fred Lahtin e n and freshmen, Ron Sanders and George Delimba. All of the seniors are returning lettermen while Willson Carlson and Tafelski of the juniors also won letters last season, as did Jim Willson Koivisto and Lahtinen who are sophomores. The Red Devils will usher in the 1965 baseball campaign with a clash against the Besse m e r Speed Boys to be played starting at 6 p.m. on Monday at Monarch Field. Melchiori's starting nine f o r the season opener will be McDonald, catching; Jim Willson, first base; Tafelski, second base; Fertile or Koivisto. short stop; Eckstrom, third base; Miklesh, left field; Verbos, center field; Lahtinen or Kravetz, right field, and either Fertile or Koivisto on the mound. Melchiori stated that the practice sessions have brought out strong defensive and pitching results but, so far the squad's bitting is not up to par. By HAL BOCK Associated Press Sports Writer Now, if the Pirates only had the Mets' number the way Juan Marichal does.. . Pittsburgh is the hottest team in • the major leagues with 18 victories in the last 20 games after a 4-2 victory over Houston Thursday night. Marichal, meanwhile, continued feeding New York his personal steady diet of blanks as San Francisco downed the Mets 3-0. The Pirates' victory stretched their latest winning streak to six games while the Mets' loss was their sixth in a row. The last time New York won, Pittsburgh lost. In fact the Pirates' only two setbacks in the last three weeks have come at the hands of the cellar-dwelling New Yorkers. Bob Veale won his fifth straight complete game against the Astros with home runs by Willie Stargell and Donn Clendenon the key blows for the Pirates. League-leading Los Angeles was blanked by Philadelphia's 2 Teams Tied For Loop Lead STANDINGS W Porky's 4 Smittie's 4 Last East 3 Old Office 3 Johnny's 3 White Birch 2 City Hotel 1 Petrusha's 0 L 1 1 2 2 2 3 4 5 Ray Herbert, who pitched his first National League shutout 40. In afternoon games, Milwaukee moved within 2Vfe games of the lead with a 6-4 victory over Chicago and Cincinnati edged St. Louis 8-7. Veale had his string of scoreless innings snapped at 28 when Houston pushed a run across in the fifth, but the tall left-hander went on to his seventh victory in nine decisions. Marichal shut out the Mets for the third time this season and has allowed them just one run in the last 52 innings dating back to May 31, 1964. The victory ran his career mark to 12-0 against New York. Jesus Alou and Jim Davenport provided Marichal (9-5) with all the runs he needed, hammering solo home runs against Met starter Gary Kroll. Richie Allen and Dick Stuart supported Herbert with back-to- back homers in the sixth inning as the Phillie right-hander evened his record at 3-3. Stuart, whose fielding has left something to be desired in the past, turned in the defensive play of the night to bail Herbert out of a spot in the eighth. After Ruben Amaro made two errors on one play, allowing Willie Crawford to reach second, Stuart barely reached Maury Wills' little pop up and then flipped to Amaro, doubling Crawford. Frank Robinson ripped his 300th career homer and Tommy arper had four hits for the leds. Leo Cardenas, who had hree safeties, tagged a bases oaded triple as Cincinnati built n early lead. But St. Louis came back on wo homers by Bill White before Tigers Are Improved Team This Season STRETCHED OUT—Bill White, top, of the St. Louis Cardinals needed every inch to take Dick Groat's throw and retire Bill Cowan of the New York Mets. Meanwhile, Nellie Fox (2) of the Houston Astors lunges for Vada Pinson of the Cincinnati Reds. By BERNIE KENNEDY Associated Press Sports Writer DETROIT (AP)—The Detroit Tigers are an improved team this year, largely because of the hitting of Willie Morton and Dick McAullffe,. the pitching of Hank Aguirre and Mickey Lolich and general improvement in several departments. Compare the Tigers after their first 50 baseball games, slightly less than a third of the season, with the same pace last year: —Teamwise, Detroit is four games above the .500 mark this season, compared with a 21-28 record a year ago. They played a tie game with New York to account for the 50th contest. —Although the Tigers are some seven percentage points below their team batting average of .243 last year, they have scored more runs, 222-209, and hit more home runs, 47-40. The pitching staff has an earned run average of 3.93, compared with 4.17 a year ago and has allowed fewer homers, 47-53. The 11 complete games turned in so far compares with nine in 1964. Horton, who was trying to make a go of it with Syracuse at this point last year, perhaps is the biggest surprise. Confi- dent and poised, Horton has maintained the league lead in hitting since the early stages of the campaign. McAuliffe leads the team In Ailments Fail to Bother Golfers By HAL PARIS Associated Press Sports Writer CLEVELAND (AP) — The first-round leaders in the $135,000 Cleveland Open Golf Tournament are nursing a variety of ailments, but their scores are healthy enough. BJlly Casper, the veteran Cali- torhian, said he didn't think he would even play Thursday after surgery the night before to remove a hemorrhoid. But the 33-year-old Casper showed up anyway and posted a strong four-under-par 67 over Highland Parks's 6,821-yard course. "It didn't bother me a bit," Casper said of his minor operation after he moved into a first- place deadlock with defending titlist Tony Lema. Champagne Tony, who rang up five birdies and a bogey in registering his 67, said he felt "lousy" because of a heavy cold. "A few more birdies and I would have forgotten I had a cold," Lema Jested after his impressive round. . And Tommy Aaron, one of five pros chasing the leaders only a stroke behind at 68, said he has been taking penicillin for a strep throat he picked up last weekend at the Buick Open. Another pro fighting a nagging cold, Arnold Palmer, started slowly but finished with an even par 71. For two of the tour's champions, it was a long day. U.S. Open titlist Ken Venturi, plagued by a circulatory ailment in his hands, shot a 76 while PGA king Bobby Nichols came in with a 75. Venturi, who says frankly "I am playing poorly," will defend his Open crown In St. Louis next week. Deadlocked with Aaron were rookie Bob Relth Jr., Bill Martindale, Dan Bikes and Johnny Pott. Porky's Bar and Smittie's Tap remained the leaders in the Iron County Slow-Pitch Softb a 11 League after Tuesday night's action, despite the fact that both squads suffered their first losses of the season. Porky's fell in defeat at t h e hands of the White Birch Inn nine by a • score of 17-7 while Smittie's came out on the losing end of a 31-11 score in a contest with Johnny's Bar o f Mercer. Both squads now have 4-1 records and not far behind are three teams, Old Office, Johnny's and Last East with 3-2 marks for the season, White Birch is in sixth place with a 2-3 record while City Hotel has a firm grip on seventh place in the league standings with a 1-4 tally and Petrusha's unit holds down the league's bottom spot with a record of 0-5. In the other games played this week, City Hotel won i t s first game of the season b y trouncing Petrusha's 33-11 and Last East downed Old Office 114. Next week's schedule will see Petrusha's take on Johnny's Bar at Mercer, City Hotel will tangle with White Birch at Bes semer, Smittie's will meet Old Office at Montreal and Porky'i clashes with Last East at Bessemer.

Twins' Lead Is Cut as McDowell Pitches Indians to 4-1 Victory By MIKE RATHET Associated Press Sports Writer The best advice Sam McDowell ever received was not to take any.

McDowell now has won three straight, lifting his record to 6-3 while proving that the amazing flip-flop he made after the middle of the 1964 season was only the first step toward justifying the $100,000 bonus the Indians paid out five years ago. For it was only last season that McDowell, who took advice so readily he learned his pickoff move in a telephone conversation, began to listen to General Manager Gabe Paul and walk away from all the free advice he was getting. "I had a brainstorm," admits McDowell, "I'woke up." Instead of experimenting, McDowell began to rely only on a fast ball and- curve, enough equipment for a guy with his overpowering speed. So, he closed his ears, opened up with the fast ball and curve after three previous shots at the majors had proved fruitless and put together an 11-6 record over the final half of the season. And now he suddenly has blossomed into, .the league's strikeout artist, challenging Sandy . Koufax for the major league lead. McDowell has struck out 108 in 80 2-3 innings to 119^ in 1011-3 innings for the Los Angeles Dodgers' southpaw. While McDowell was showing his problems are solved, Baltimore's Waliy Bunker took his second straight swing at the sophomore jinx, allowing only an unearned run while scattering eight hits in a 5-1 victory over Washington. In the only other AL game scheduled, the Chicago White Sox moved to within V/2 games of the front-running Twins by downing Boston 4-2. McDowell, struck out Twins' slugger Harmon Killebrew three times and allowed Minnesota's only run in the second inning on a walk and singles by Jerry Kindall and pitcher Dave Boswell. He allowed only six hits until the ninth when the Twins threatened and Gary Bell finished up. Camilp Carreon hit a two-run homer in Cleveland's three-run second inning uprising against Boswell and Leon Wagner wrapped up the scoring with a solo homer in the third. Bunker, who had a 19-5 record last season but has been plagued by arm trouble, came PORTHCAWL, Wales (AP) — Bill Hyndman of Philadelphia carried Uncle Sam's banner into the quarter-finals of the British Amateur Golf Championship today but even at 49 he said it was not his legs he was worried about. 'It's Mike's legs," said Hyndman. "If they give out we're lost. Otherwise I am very confident." The sole survivor of 34 Americans originally entered in the 1965 title play was talking about his 65-year-old caddie, Mike McCormack, who is just about the last of a dying breed. Said Mike: "Mr. Hyndman can worry about his own legs. I'll take care of mine." Throughout his sub-par march through the ranks of the amateur competition here i Hyndman has been paying considerable heed to old Mike, who knows the golf courses of Britain like the back of his hand. And it has paid off. The 6-foot-3 Hyndman and the 5-foot-2 McCormack make a strange looking pair. But their combined golfing skill has re- sulted in the American playing four cracking rounds in a total of eight-under-par 72 on the 6,700-yard Royal Porthcawl links. Hyndman defeated Scotland's Ronnie Shade 2 and 1; R. D. James of England 4 and 3; Mike Bills of England 7 and 6, and Colin Strachan of Scotland 1 up. His biggest hurdle to date came up today in the .form of Clive Clark, 19-year-old English youth who has risen like a rocket in the past year. Clark is a virtual certainty for. the British Walker Cup team and he Justified this confidence Thursday when he defeated defending champion Gordon Clark, who is no relative, 4 and 3 in the fifth round.

Aguirre is one of the early candidates for Comeback of the Year honors. He had a 1-2 record after nine appearances last season and appeared to be going nowhere. But a strong showing in spring training has continued and carried him to a 6-2 mark so far. He has four complete games to his credit. Lolich finished strong and won 18 games last year but he was a so-so, 4-5 at this point. This season his record is 7-2. Disappointments? Dave Wickersham, 7-5 at this point last year, has a 1-6 record this season. He just recently got another starting assignment. Bill Freehan is 100 points below his batting average of a year ago. But he has a serious back injury and assorted other ailments. Jerry Lumpe, Don Wert and Norm Cash all are below last year's pace in hitting. Phil Regan still is looking for his first victory as a pitcher. But the Tigers are in fourth place — up three notches from last year—and will try to Improve their standing in a four- game series starting with a twi- night doubleheader tonight. Lolich and Joe Sparma art slated to hurl for the Tigers, while Jim Grant and Dick Stigman are the choices of the league-leading Twins. Dodgers Whip Yankees 6-3 In Ironwood Little League play Wednesday evening, the Dodgers whipped the Yankees 6-3 with Bill Inch going the distance on the hill for the Dodgers, posting his first win. Inch allowed four hits and three runs, gave up three bases on balls and struck out 12. For the Yankees. Kostac and Meyers each hurled three innings, allowing six runs on four hits and eight base on balls. The only multiple hits in the game were doubles by Inch and Johnson of the Dodgers, and Simon of the Yanks.

Three teams are fighting It out for fifth-place honors, Junior Chamber, Safeway and Smeeth's all with 1-3 records. Holding down the league's bottom spot is Bingo's C & M Oil with a winless 0-4 mark. Team managers are r e minded to turn in their rosters and money to league officials. Money and rosters are to be in before next week's games and they are asked to turn them in to Ray Smeeth, league treasurer. Next week's schedule is: Monday — Standard Oil v s Knights of Columbus and Carlson's vs Junior Chamber. Wednesday — Bingo's C & M vs. Aurora and Smeeth's vs Safeway.
