I TWEtVB IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, I RON WOOD, MICHIGAN WEDNESDAY, JUNE 16, IMS. Tiger Pitchers Strike Out 18 in 6-5 Win Over Bosox Morton's Homer Is Winning Hit Hurley Has 7 Returning Letter Winners on Its Baseball Team By BERNIE KENNEDY Associated Press Sports Writer DETROIT (AP) — One swish of Willie Horton's bat capped a memorable evening for the Detroit Tigers Tuesday night. And, as Manager Charlie Dressen said, "It would have been a shame to lose this one after the way our two relief pitchers came through." Horton hit a three-run homer in the eighth inning to give the Tigers a 6-5 victory over the Boston Red Sox after the visitors had chased starter Dave Wickersham with three runs in the first Inning. Denny McLain, who said afterward he didn't feel he had too much on the ball until the third inning, came in and struck out the. first seven men he faced to set one record and tie another. He fanned 14 batters before giving way to a pinch-hitter in the seventh inning. The seven consecutive strikeouts established a major league mark for relief pitchers and tied the American League standard. Fred Gladding, who was the winning pitcher, fanned four more Red Sox batters in the last two innings to give the Tigers 18 strikeouts for the contest. "After a while," McLain said, "I had the best curve ball I have had this season. But I really didn't think I had a thing when I faced the first five batters. I threw fast balls and I guess I was just lucky to get him out. "Later, my curve ball started to come in and made the other pitches that much more effective." "He had his best stuff out there today," catcher Bill Freehan chimed. "He's got a sneaky fast ball. It's by the batters before they realize it." Horton, who has now hit a homer in each of the last three games, said he hit a fast ball under his chin. How can a batter hit a home run on a pitch that has to be nit with the handle of his bat? "When you are strong, anything is possible," Dressen sairl of his star left fielder. "With me, it would just about get over the shortstop's head." Before the eighth-inning fore- works, the Tigers were held to just two hits by Earl Wilson and Arnold Barley—a single by Don Wert in the third and a double by Norm Cash in the seventh. They scored two runs in the fifth when Wilson walked four batters and Dick McAuliffe hit an infield grounder. McAuliffe was hit on the head by an Earley pitch leading off the eighth. Jerry Lumpe doubled and Gates Brown singled to score the first run. Al Kaline popped out before Horton hit his homer off Dick Radtz. Wickersham, whose only victory this season came on April 15, was the victim of some "lucky" hits by the Red Sox. Lenny Green blooped a single over McAuliffe's head, Carl Ya- strzemski bounced a single off Seven returning letter men form the nucleus of the 1965 Hurley Midget summer baseball squad that will again participate in the Western Michigan Upper Peninsula High School Baseball League. Coach Bill Zell is hoping for an improvement over last year's Hurley record in the league when the Midgets landed in the Nicklaus Seeks Grand Slam Win By BOB GREEN Associated Press Sports Writer ST. LOUIS (AP) — The giant figure of Jack Nicklaus, seeking golfdom's first professional grand slam, loomed over the Bellerive Country Club's lengthy acres today as 150 of the world's premier players put the final touches on preparations for the U.S. Open golf tourney. Many of the 136 pros and 14 amateurs who start the four-day tourney Thursday have contended that the vast, 7,191-yard course — longest ever in the 65 years of the Open — heavily 'avors the long-hitting Ohio Fats. "Every course favors Nickaus," retorted Bob Charles. * * * Just behind the 23-year-old Masters champ came determined Arnold Palmer, attempt- ng to turn' back Nicklaus' threat to his tottering throne, and ailing defending champion Ken Venturi. Other favorites include Gary Wickersham's Thomas hit a leg and bounder in Lee front of the plate which Freehan fielded, but was unable to tag the runner crossing the plate. Singles by Felix Mantilla and Tony Conigliaro were the only solid hits of the inning. The Red Sox got to McLain for two runs in the sixth on a walk, a double by Ed Bressoud and a single by Green.

Other members who complete the 22-man squad are: Junior David Kostac; freshmen John Gulan, Harold Gehrke, John Markowski, Bill Trolla and Richard Engstrom, and eighth graders Dennis Kostac, Michael Swetkovich, Robert Battisti, James Bertagnoli, Gary Kurta, Edward ' Gulan, Keith Larivee, Kenneth Larivee and Arnold Wehmas. The Midgets have already lost their season opener to the Bergland Vikings in a contest played at Bergland on Monday and they will again see action on Thursday when they play host to the Bessemer Speed Boys at the Montreal Field in their first home appearance of the eight- game season schedule. Other teams in the league that the Hurley nine will have to face are Ironwood and White Pine. little with Palmer, makes Player, the who, along South African Nicklaus up golf's and big three, Tony Lema and Billy Casper. And, of course, there's a sentimental choice, 53-year-old Sam Snead, a bulky, drawling ghost from another golfing era, making his 25th try for the one major title that has eluded him. 'It's long and it's tough, plenty tough, the toughest open course I've ever seen," Snead said. "It's so long Nicklaus has five strokes on the rest of us." Nicklaus demurred, but he was about the only one. You've got to pamper this course, not sledgehammer it," said Jack, who needs to add the Open, PGA and British Open to Ills Masters for the grand slam that's never been accomplished, + * * The last two days of the tourney are scheduled -for national television coverage by NBC, starting Saturday at :4 p.m., EST, and Sunday .at 3:30 p.m. The weather for the first couple of days of practice rounds has been perfect — a bright sun, clear skies, temperatures in the low 80s, a slight breeze. The long-range forecast is for more of the same. If it holds, crowds of about 20,000 are expected the last two days. The Open carries a yalue of about $125,000, with $25,000 to the winner. Art Wall was forced to with draw Tuesday because of a back injury. He was replaced by Ted Kroll. Only four of the original 22 players claimed by the N e w York Mets in the National League expansion draft of 1961 are still with the team. They are Chris Cannizzaro, Joe Christopher, Jim' Hickman and Al Jackson. Giants Down Red legs 9-5 The Giants took full advantage of five Redleg errors to rack up a 9-5 win, in Ironwood- Bessemer Babe Ruth League action Tuesday night at Monarch Field. The Redlegs outhit the winner 7-6 but an evenly distributed hitting and scoring attack led the way to the Giant win. The Giants opened the game's scoring with a single score in the first inning only to have it matched and one more added by the Redlegs in the bottom of the first as the losers took a 2-1 lead. A lone tally in the second inning was enough to knot the contest until the losers came up with one run in their half of the second inning was enough to knot the contest until the losers came up with one run in their half of the second to take a slim 3-2 advantage. Both squads went scoreless in the third inning but the'Winners came up with three runs in the fourth to take a short-lived lead of 5-3. The Redlegs scored twice in the fourth inning and the score again was tied, this time at 5-5. The Giants tallied the t i e breaking run in the top of the fifth inning and from that point were never headed, holding the Redlegs scoreless throughout the final three innings. The winners put the frosting on the cake of victory with three runs in the top of the seventh inning to cement the win. , Niemi was the winning pitcher for the Giant squad and he allowed seven hits, and five runs, walked six and struck out eight. Waltanek and . Stone mark shared the mound duties for the Redlegs and together struck out eight, walked six and allowed six hits. Alleva belted out a pair of singles for the winning nine as did Niemi while Koivisto hit a three- bagger. Bogan doubled .for the losers and Stonemark connected for two singles.

A-9,624, Grelle Sets North American Mile Record; Snell Is Last VANCOUVER (AP) — Lanky Jim Grelle of Portland, Ore., became North America's fastest miler Tuesday night in a race that saw Peter Snell of New Zealand turn in the worst race of his startling career. Grelle made good his boast to lick Snell in the magic mile at the Vancouver International track meet. And he did, in a time of 3:55.4, the fastest mile ever run by an American. The fastest previous mile by an American citizen was 3:55.5 by Jim Beatty in 1963 But for a jubilant Grelle, the edge was taken off the victory by the dead-last finish of Snell —• a victim of a stomach ailment in the morning. As the race progressed and it became obvious that Snell was not going to make his move, the excited crowd of 13,891 turned its attention to the front runners. The crowd went wild as Grelle headed for and finally broke the string. Tony Harris of London crossed the line in 4:02.5, some 15 yards behind Grelle, with Cary Welsiger of Raleigh, N.C., breathing down his neck with a 4:02.8 clocking. The spectators fell silent as Snell trudged to the finish. A few booed him. Snell collapsed over an iron fence at the side of the track — tears welling in his eyes. He was unable to talk. The New Zelander, the one the spectators had hoped to see regain his world record lost last week to Frenchman Miche Mazy with a time of 3:53.6 walked to the public address system and was handed the mi crophone. "It will take me a long time to get over the shame of running last," he said in a quavering voice. "Please believe me, I was doing my best." He explained to the crowd o an upset stomach he suffered in the morning. The spectators apparently accepted the New Zealander's explanation. They stood and cheered him. Grelle's performance was enough to earn him the title of outstanding male athlete of the meet. However, he admitted disappointment that Snell was not able to run his usual race. "He would have given me a hard race . . . he's a remarkable sportsman."

Husband-Wife Fishing License Bill Passed LANSING (AP) — "Any man who loves his wife enough to take her fishing shouldn't be penalized by having to pay for her license," said Rep. Russell Hellman, D-Dollar Bay. And with that the House defeated an amendment on a Senate senior citizens fishing license bill that would have required a separate license for the fisherman's wife. The bill, passed by the House Tuesday and on its way to Gov. Goerge Romney, allows over-65 fishermen to pay only 50 cents for a license — wife included. ters and married Lou Bpu- dreau's daughter two years ago. replaced Detroit starter Dave Wickersham in the first inning Tuesday night and fanned the first seven Red Sox he faced, breaking by one the all-time record' for consecutive strikeouts by a relief pitcher. He wound up with 14 strikeouts in 6 2-3 innings — and no cigar. Fred Gladding, who pitched the final two innings after McLain was lifted for a pinch-hitter, received credit for the victory. Gladding added our strikeouts, giving the two Detroit relievers a total of 18 for the game. * * * McLain, whose string of seven strikeouts also tied the AL record for starting pitchers and relievers — starters Max Sur kont, Johnny Podres and Jim Maloney share the modern major league mark of eight — now has fanned 66 in 73 1-3 innings. The Chicago native has started nine games this season and completed only one of them, a three-hit 4-0 victory over Washington May 19. He is 2-3 for the season and 8-9 with the Tigers since they picked him up from the White Sox on first-year waivers in 1963. McLain's strikeout feat overshadowed league-leading Minnesota's 4-0 triumph over second-place Chicago in the opener of a three-game series between the two contenders. Baltimore nipped the New York Yankees 2-1 in 10 innings; Cleveland whipped Washington 8-3 and Kansas City blanked the Los Angeles Angels 5-0. McLain, who relieved Wickersham with Boston in front 3-0 in the first, yielded two more runs before leaving the game for a hitter in the seventh. Radatz, the third relief pitcher to fan six men in a row — he did it against the Yankees last month — ga"ve up a run in the eighth on a hit batsman, Jerry Lumpe's double and Gates Brown's infield single before Horton unloaded a 3-2 pitch into the lower left field stands. * * * The homer was Horton's third in three games and 14th of the season. Minnesota's Jim Grant stopped the White Sox on five hits for his sixth victory in seven decisions. He has beaten Chicago three times without a loss Tony Oliva and Bob Allison hit home runs off Gary Peters, 5-5, as the Twins stretched their league lead to IM* games. Russ Snyder, a former Yankee farmhand, drove in both Baltimore runs with a sacrifice fly in the eighth and a 10th inning single, beating Mel Stottlemyre, 7-3, and enabling the Orioles to stretch their winning string through five games. Rocky Colavito's three-run homer and Chuck Hinton's solo shot powered Cleveland past the Senators. Gary Bell pitched the last three innings, preserving Sam McDowell's seventh victory. Hinton, an ex-Senator, has hit four of his six homers against Washington. Diego Segui stymied Los Angeles on two hits and Bert Cam- paneris singled, doubled and stole two bases to pace the Athletics' attack. The two steals gave Campaneris 20 for the year, tying him with his second cousin, Jose Cardenal of the Angels, for the league lead.

Aurora Di. 932-1912 By MURRAY CHASS Associated Press Sports Writer Felipe and Matty Alou haven't been teammates for two seasons, but they sttll work together like the Lone Ranger and Tonto. J The brothers. Felipe with Milwaukee and Matty with San Francisco, teamed up Tuesday night to move the Braves a game closer, to the National League-leading Los Angeles Dodgers. . , . Felipe drove in six runs with two homers and a single sparking the second-place Braves to a 12-7 victory over Philadelphia while Matty scored both runs in the Giants' 2-1 triumph over the Dodgers. Milwaukee now trails Los Angeles by 2Va games. The Alou brothers, including Jesus, played together with the Giants in 1983. At the time, Felipe was in his sixth year, Matty his fourth and Jesus his first at San Francisco. But in December of that year, Felipe was shipped to Milwaukee, and then there were two. Jesus has been a permanent fixture in the Giants' outfield this year while Felipe has started either at first base or in the outfield at Milwaukee. Matty, on the other hand, has been only a sometimes San Francisco starter. He enjoyed one of his better nights against the Dodgers, though. With one out in the first inning, the 26-year-old Jefty doubled and stole third as pitcher Don Drysdale peered in for the sign for his first pitch to Willie Mays. Mays then tripled for the I'irst run. After Wes Parker's home run tied the game in the fourth, Matty led off the sixth by beating oyt a bunt in front of the plate. He moved to second on an infield out and raced home as Jim Hart singled to right. Felipe, meanwhile, became the first National Leaguer to knock in six runs in a game this season. His performance brought his average to 302, his homer total to 10 and his runs batted in mark to 36, the last just one behind Ed Mathews' team-leading 37. in other NL games, Pittsburgh outslugged St. Louis 10-6, Cincinnati downed New York 51 and Chicago whipped Houston 5-0. Marichal held the Dodgers to five hits, two by Drysdale, and brought his record to 10-5. Drysdale, who had won nine of his last 10 games, suffered his fourth setback against 11 victories. Felipe Alou ignited a 21-hit Braves' attack with his first- inning homer, then singled home two runs in the six-run third and clouted a three-run homer in the sixth. Eddie Mathews triggered the six-run outburst with a home run, the 2,- 000th hit of his career. The Pirates beat St. Louis for the first time in 18 games as Donn Clendenon drove in four runs with homers in the eighth and ninth innings. Pinch hitter Ossie Virgil's bases-empty homer in the Pittsburgh seventh tied it 5-5 after the Cardinals had scored four times in the fourth two on Jerry Buchek's triple. Sammy Ellis pitched a four- hitter for his 10th victory against two defeats. He allowed the Mets only one hit after the second inning and at one stretch retired 18 straight batters. Pete Rose and Deron Johnson each lashed a two-run double for Cincinnati. The Cubs extended Houston's losing streak to eight games and its scoreless inning string to 31 Bob Buhl set the Astros down on five hits through eight innings and Ted Abernathy 1 finished up Don Landrum doubled home a run and scored on Ron Santo's sacrifice fly in the fourth.
