FRIDAT, APRIL », MM BLYTHBVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE KIN! Herb Doesn't Score Red legs Beat Cardinals In Homer Hit Parade, 10-9 By ED WILKI The Associated PreM Herb Score, Cleveland's fine young southpaw, says he doesn't sleep well after losing. From the looks of things he could end up with insomnia just by facing the Chicago White Sox. with a bruised instep. The senators got two in the first Score was the A m e r i c an League's No. 1 rookie last sea son, with a 16-10 mark and a record 245 strikeouts—but he couldn't beat Chicago in three tries. Even though figured to win 20 this season, he found himself in the same old nightmare alley .yesterday. He fanned 10 and gave just two hits, yet lost 1-0 to the White Sox, who got a two-hitter themselves from Jack Harshman and scored the lone run without a hit. Chicago Sweep With that follow-up to Billy Pierce's 2-1, five-hit victory, opening day, Chicago swept the two- game set between the two pennant threats and stayed unbeaten in the AL along with Boston, which defeated Baltimore 4-2 behind Tom Brewer's two-hitter, and Kansas City, which banged Detroit 4-1 on Bobby Shantz' five- hit pitching. The New Yankees, atfer thumping Washington twice, were dumped by the Senators 1-3. In the National, only Milwaukee remained unbeaten, edging the Chicago Cubs .3-1 while Pittsburgh knocked the New York Giants to their first defeat 3-2. Brooklyn opened in its Jersey City "home" off ex-teammate Maury McDermott, then iced it in the fourth as Jim Lemon and Ed Fit: Gerald tagged the southpaw for solo homers. Chuck Stobbs held the Yanks to seven hits, including a . homer and two singles by Elston Howard. Ray Boone had three of Detroit's hits off Shantz, who was belted for a harmless homer by Earl Torgeson. The A's climbed 01. Steve Gromek for five singles and their four runs in the fifth. Rookie Wes Covington, batting for winning pitcher Bob Buhl, cracked a run-scoring single to break a 1-all tie and send Milwaukee into a 2-0 record. Thomai Star Pirate Prank Thomas singled home the I deciding run in the eighth for tr Pirates after Preston Ware pinch single off Al Worthingtc scored two for a 2-1 Buc lead the seventh. The Brooks scored twice in t 10th to win for reliefer Clem bine as Rube Walker lifted a sa rifice fly in a pinch role wi the bases loaded against relief an dbeat Philadelphia 5-4 in 10 Duane Pillette. Roy Campanel Innings. Cincinnati also had to go had tied lt ^ th a double—to b come the sixth current Dodgi with 1,000 major league hits. For all the homers it was bases-loaded single by Wally Po 10 to beat St. Louis 10-9 with each club swatting four homers. Poor Timing Score's big trouble with the White Sox, • outside of yesterday's wildness, has been poor timing. He always rims into top pitching opponents. Last year he lost 4-1 against Pierce's three-hitter, 2-1 against Harshaman's three-hitter, and 4-2 against Virgil Trucks' four -hitter. Chicago didn't solve Herb for a hit until the eighth, but scored in the seventh on a walk, a two- run wild pitch and a .sacrifice fly by ex-Tribesman Larry Doby, who had struck out five times in a row. At Boston, Brewer also got into trouble with walks, but Mickey Vernon smacked a fly which Dave Pope lost in the sun and fell for a two-run double to breajf a 2-all tie. Ted Williams was on the bench off reliefer Ellis Kinder wh fanned Wally to save Tuesday opener—that got the job done f< the Eedlegs. Kay Jablonski gram slammed to get the Reds back the game in the seventh. Te Kluszewski (his first), Post an Smoky Burgess also homered fo the Reds. Stan Musial, Wally Moo and Bill Sarni, who got tw whacked 'em for the Cards. In his basketball comeback mad late during the last National Ba ketball Assn. season, George M kan averaged 1014 points a gam for 37 games. He averaged sllghtl more than 20 minutes a game. Master Your Game... No. 5 Placing the Ball By JACKIE BURKJE Master of the Masters Written for NEA Service How and where the ball is played is the crux of thi address. There should be nothing difficult about it. There Is not a variety of positions, as so many seem to believe there should be. Until we discuss the playing of wood shoU, suffice is to say that with an iron the ball should be played midway between the feet. Hitting the "ball you should have the feeling that it is In the way of your swing. Get the idea that the ball will take flight as a matter of course. Only by placing it midway between the feet at the address ia this possible. As I stress in the book, "The Natural Way to Better Golf" (Hanover House), the necessity for the so-called "firm left side" and "straight left arm" is dictated by improper position of the ball at the address. If the ball Is played too far forward, an unnatural arc In the swing must be maintained by something, The result is a straight or, more likely, stiff left arm. The firm left side aids the straight left arm. I is a restricting action, and by itsel can only lead to a loss in power. Playing the ball midway between the feet, a natural path can be maintained using both arms comfortably and freely. Whatever firmness is required of the 1, Ct side will be natural. NEXT: Look up.

Boudreau Puts Official OK On. Arm of Skantz By FBANK CRAWFORD KANSAS CITY (AP) — Everyone except American League hitters can quit worrying about Bobby Shantz' "sore arm." Authority for that statement ls| Harvey Kuenn and Torg-eson yes- Lou Boudreau, manager of Kansas City Athletics. Boudreau isn't claiming th southpaw is going to win games as he did in 1952. But tt slow process of getting the tin hurler back in shape is at an en From here on in Bobby w stand or fall on his stuff, La year Shantz was nursed alon carefully after two years of trouble. The 5-hit, 4-1 victory Bobb threw at the Detroit Tigers yes terday doesn't make a season b it did show Boudreau and his A what they have been watching f< ever since they moved into Ka: sas City last year. Shantz didn't walk a ma threw with a free, easy motio and was consistently ahead of tl hitters as he pitched in 40-degr temperature. "I had better control of n curve and fast ball than I ha' had for a long time," said th modest little guy who says this the year to find out whether t is a pitcher or a has been. "W arm felt good and strong through out and it still feels fine," he adi ed after the club returned horn last night. It was the first time Shantz ha gone nine innings since he bei the Yankees in New York the ml die of last season. Joe Ginsberg, who caugh Shantz yesterday, shook his hea in admiration. . That little guy was fast. An his curve; it was something seel I never caught him befor this season but I batted again him in 1962. He looked Just good to me today. That Torgeso made a good guess and caug! hold of a fast ball or the Tlgei still would be looking for a ru off Bobby.. (Earl Torgeson, Tlge first baseman, homered off Shan for Detroits only run.) Jos Astroth, catcher for Shanl when he won 24 games and th leagues most valuable playe award, was exultant: "Ive been telling everyone Bob y was throwing just as hard an just as well as he ever did ex cept for his control. Well, he ha ,t again and If he keeps It, it joing to be tough on the hitters i his league.' And, added Joe, Shantz coul win a game or two on his fleldln alone.

I needed a runner in the opener Tuesday and motioned to the bench of Cletus Boyer. Shantz was sitting next to Boyer and before I could stop him he was out on second base. So I let him stay. He's one of the best baserunners on th« club." Bobby scored the tying run a moment later In the A's 3-1 victory. Birds Look For Big Mob At Busch ST. LOUIS (/R—A record opening night crowd of 23,000 to 25,000 is expected at Busch Stadium tonight as the St. Louis Cardinals open their • home season as hosts to the league-leading Milwaukee Braves.

(AP) — About this time last year, Billy Maxwell was the most inconsistent shooter in the Hot Springs Open Golf Tournament.
