A large crowd saw the area champions overcome an early 32 Wakefield lead to earn a trip to the district tournament to be staged at Iron Mountain later this week. The Bessemer Little League All Stars overcame an early Lake of the Clouds adventage to defeat the Ontonagon County Little League All Star aggregati o n 4-3 in the afternoon's consolation game. Ironwood and Wakefield had earned the right to battle in the championship game when they scored victories over Lake of the Clouds and Bessemer, respectively, Thursday afternoon Ironwood defeated the Onton agon County team 7-3, while Wakefield nipped Bessemer 1-0, scoring a run in the final frame, behind the no-hit no-run pitching of Bob Bruno. The area champions jumped into an early 2-0 lead, scor i n g single tallies in the first two innings on a pair of singles in each frame. Larry Passint, Ironwood's hitting star of the contest, and Jim Lutey each got singles in the opening inni n g, with Passint crossing the plate with the game's first score.

The Tigers and Chicago White Sox clubbed a dozen homers, two shy of the major league record, in splitting a doubleheader The White Sox scored eight runs in the sixth inning of the opener in snapping a six-game losing streak — and Detroit's five-game victory skein — 10-6. singles in the second and third frames. Bessemer and Lake of the Clouds waged a see-saw battle before a big three-run fou r t h inning decided the issue in favor of the Gogebic County seat nine. A single by Don Kangas and two Lake of Cloud errors permitted Tom Slin to score Bessemer's initial tally-in the opening inning of play. Lake of the Clouds tied the score with a tally in the second frame on a long home run by Jim O'Connell, first baseman, over the centerfield fence. Mark Ouisfredi doubled later in the inning, but failed to score. Lake of the Clouds mov e d ahead 2-1 in the third inn i n g when Jeff Jackson was safe on an error and scored later on a double by John Polich. Bessemer erupted for three big tallies in the fourth inning to take a 4-2 lead. A walk to Fred Sandquist, singles by Mike Massie, Curt Gustafson and Tom Korpi and two Lake of the Clouds errors moved Bessemer ahead for keeps. i The Tigers came back, scored! : seven times in the second in-' j ning .'IK ; won the nightcap 13-2 There were heroes aplenty for : the Tigers, who now have banged 19 homers in their last | seven games. Norm Cash had two homers in the nightcap and finished with six runs batted in for the day. Don Demeter had a pair of solo hornets in the first game and Dick McAuliffe added a homer and four RBIs in the second game. "This has been one of my real easy victories and it couldn't come against a better club." Denny McLain said after stretching his winning streak to eight jjernes, bringing his record to 9-3 McLsin was left unprotected by the White Sox in 1963 and the Tigers claimed him. Chicago decided to stick with Dave DeBusschere and Bruce Howard, wl-o was the loser in the second game. "I lave nothing against Al Lopez (Chicago manager)," McLain cautioned. "But I'm from Chicago and was a little hurt when ni-tified that I had been drafted I just like to beat the White Sox because they let me go. "As it turned out, I like Detroit and am doing pretty well now," he added McLain's success was somewhat rvershadowed by the faulty performance of Mickey Lolich, the loser in the opener. Lolich, now 10-6, was making his 22nd start and failed to finish for the 19th time. "He's got no excuse," Manager Charlie Dressen said. "They get mrre runs for him than any Burgess of White Sox Sets New Record for Pinch-Hitters DIZZY FEELING—"What a dizzy feeling" exclaimed George Mead, driver of car number 7, after he and his car did a complete cartwheel and landed back on its wheels to complete the race. The action was just a portion of the thrills that were seen by an estimated 3.500 fans Sunday night at the stock car races, sponsored by the Hiawatha Racing Association, at the Gogebic County Fairgrounds here. Mead was not hurt in the episode and he and his car came back to capture a pair of first places in later action.

A three-run fourth inning uprising, which featured a three- run home run by Passint, returned the lead to Ironwood and they were never headed. Pass- int's home run followed a single by Norm Backon and an error on a ground ball by Bill Inch. Wakefield committed three errors in the frame. Ironwood batted around in the fifth inning to add three more runs on a double by Passint, a single by pitcher Joe Komaromy, walks to Backon and Bob Jacquart and Waiko Spetz was safe on an error. Spetz, Backon hold t-he leads. "His best game came when An estimated crowd of 3,500 fans found their way to the Gogebic County Fairgroun d s Sunday evening to witness the weekly stock car races sponsored bj the Hiawatha Racing Association. A record number of cars, 42, was entered in the evening's races which started at 5 p.m. with the time trials and the actual races got under way at 6. The greater number of cars made it necessary, for the first time, to have eight races i n - Shaw's Aim, Temper Improve As Giants Edge Braves 2-7 By DICK COUCH Associated Press Sports Writer If a little Go-Go went when Forrest Harrill Burgess came to the Chicago White Sox, they haven't missed it. In a pinch, Old Smoky gives the Sox plenty of bounce to the ounce. Burgess, paunchy. 38-year-old strongman of Al Lopez' bench, broke .he major league record for pin^h-swingers Sunday with a two-run double — the 108th pinch hit of his 16-year career — as the White Sox divided a doubleheader with Detroit. The veteran catcher's hit, which Keyed an eight-run sixth- inning rally in Chicago's 10-6 first-game victory, moved him one ahead of Red Lucas, who had 107 pinch-hits for three National League clubs from 192838. "The thing that makes Smoky a great pinch hitter is the fact that he is always swinging and gets n piece of the ball," Lopez said after the second game, which the Tigers won 13-2 with a four-homer barrage. "He's not too fussy where the ball is. He just takes his cuts." Burgess can't recall his first. pinch hit — one of 12 he stroked in 1949, his rookie year with the Chicago Cubs — but he'll have a memento of No. 108, if Cooperstown doesn't put in a claim for, (it. gave him only two days' rest I stead cf tne usual six . know what's wrong and he won't' blow nny more 4-0 leads — you can brt on that," Dressen said. He did not elaborate. Don Wert's two-out homer run triggered a three-run Detroit third inning in the opener and Demetnr's first homer upped nine. Gravier was tagged for'the Detroit margin to 4-0. and Komaromy scored the Ironwood tallies. Wakefield again six hits and three bases on balls, but he got nine Bessemer batters on strikes. Six big errors, however, proved costly for his team. Don Kangas, Bessemer shortstop was the only member of the winning team to get more than one hit, two singles, while Curt Gustafson got Bessemer's lone extra-base hit, a double in the sixth frame. John Polich and Mark Guisfredi, each got a pair of hits for the Lake of the Clouds nine. Polich ! hit successive doubles in the | first and third innings, wh i 1 e i Guisfredi doubled in the second stanza.

Tom Kostac and Joe Komaromy shared the mound duties for Ironwood, limiting Wakefi e 1 d to only three hits, but gave up seven bases on balls. Kostac got two on strikes, while Komaromy struck out four. Ironw o o d committed two errors. Ironwood batters, however, gave their moundsmen good hitting support, garnering 11 hits from the offerings of two Wakefield hurlers, Peter Mest- nik and Russ Maki. The hits were all singles, except for a home run and a double by Pas- sint, who got four hits in all, the best hitting performance of the tourney. The only other Ironwood batter to net more than one hit was Rod Tafelski, who got a pair of singles in four trips to the 'plate.

By MURRAY CHASS Associated Press Sports Writer Bob Shaw's aim is improving. So is hi? temper. The San Francisco pitcher, starting for the second straight day, picked up his 10th victory Sunday as the Giants edged Mil- wauke^ 2-1 for their third consecutive triumph. But the day before, it appeared that Shaw might lose his seventh game on just three pitches. The third pitch hit leadoff batter Felipe Alou and bounced Shaw out of the game. The 32-year-old right-hander was asked to leave when he told umpire Bill Jackowskl what he thought of the call on Alou. Shaw contended rather vehemently that the ball hit the bat before it hit the batter. Once Shaw had departed, the Braves scored a run in the inning ard held the lead until the Giants scored in the fifth, taking Shaw off the hook. Less than 24 hours later, Shaw tried o get back on it. He started again — and again hit leadoff batter Alou with a pitch. But this time it took him only two pitches to zero in, and he was satisfied with his bullseye. He didn't even bring up the point for discussion. Instead, he retired the Braves in the inning and allowed them only one run and no hit batters in the next seven. Elsewhere in the National League, first-place Los Angeles held on to its one-game lead by defeating St. Louis 5-1, Chicago stopped Pittsburgh 5-0 after losing 3-2 in 13 innings, Cincinnat trimmed Houston 3-1 and New York whipped Philadelphia 8-1 before bowing 3-1. Rookies Jim Lefebvre and Jeff rorborg provided the big punch for the Dodgers, each stroking a two-run single in a ive-run, fifth-inning explosion. Bill Faul pitched a three-hitter in the Cubs' second-game victory and figured in his second triple play in 12 days. He got Pittsburgh's Roberto Clemente to line into it in the fourth inning. The Cubs pulled a riple play against Milwaukee ! July 14 with Faul on the mound The Pirates won the opener on Del Crandall's two-out homer off Lindy McDaniel in the 13th. Verncfi Law, Pittsburgh's seventh pitcher, gained his llth victory. He won his 10th with a seven-inning performance Saturday. Reliever Bill McCool rescued starter John Tsitouris from a bases-loaded jam in the eighth inning and saved the triumph for Cincinnati. Leo Cardenas doubled home two Red runs in the ninth.
