10 - Mon., May 10, 1965 Redlands Daily Facts Pinch hitters clinch big victory for Cincinnati By United Press International Dick Sisler has developed a serious penchant for pinching— and it hurts. Just ask the Pittsburgh Pirates, who are black and blue after Sisler's Cincinnati Reds literally pinched a 5-3 victory from them Sunday. The Cincinnati manager successfully employed five pinch- hitters and pinch-runners in the • ninlh inning against the Pirates as the Reds rallied for three runs to move into second place, two games behind Los Angeles. And why shouldn't Sisler summon his bench in an emergency? Cincinnati pinch-hitters are batting .545 this month with six hits in 11 appearances. Deron Johnson began the ninlh with a single. Chico Duiz, the first of along line of Reds pinchers, ran for Johnson, advanced to second when Pirate hurler Al JIcBean hit pinch- hitter Gordy Coleman with a pitch and scored on pinch- hitter Johnny Edward's single. After Leo Cardenas walked. Bob Veale relieved McBean and pinch swinger Frank Robinson promptly delivered a two - run single to score the decisive runs. Dodgers' Streak Ends San Francisco ended Los Angeles' five-game victory streak by whipping the Dodgers and Sandy Koufax, 6-3, Philadelphia defeated St. Louis 4-2, Houston beat Chicago 11-5 then lost the second game 7-1, and Milwaukee split with New York, winning 8-2 before dropping a 5-4 decision. Minnesota stopped Chicago 6-1, Washington shocked New York 5-4, Baltimore swept two from Detroit 7-1 and 5-4 in 12 innings. Cleveland took a pair from Boston 9-4 and 10-7 and Los Angeles toppled Kansas City 5-3 in American League action. Juan Marichal made a rare relief appearance and the seventh-place San Francisco Giants maintained their hex on Koufax at Candlestick Park in overhauling the league-leading Dodgers. The Giants rallied for four runs in the eighth against Koufax and reliever Bob Miller. Jay Alou, who hit a two-run homer in the fourth, kayoed Koufax with a single to score WilUe Mays with the trying run and Miller was touched for a sacrifice fly by Ed Bailey, Hal Lanier's squeeze bunt and a run-scoring single by Marichal, who won his fifth game in seven decision. Koufax has not won at Candlestick since Sept. 6, 1963. although he struck out 11 men Sunday. Torre Belts Three Joe Torre hit three home runs in the Braves doubleheader split, one a two-run poke in the opener in support of Tony Cloninger's six-hit pitching. The Mets tied up the nightcap in the seventh with pinch dou bles by Jim Hickman and Billy Cowan, two singles and two walks, then won the game in the ninth on Ed Kranepool's bases loaded single. Ernie Banks powered two home runs and lifted his runs- batted in total to 32 (the major league high) in the Cubs nightcap victory after the Astros had battered Bob Bubl and three relievers for 18 hits, including a homer and double by Rusty Staub good for five runs in the opener. Jim Wynn and John Bateman also homered for the Astros. Dick Ellsworth won the second game on a yield of five hits over 7 1-3 innings. The Cubs lost outfielder George Altman for a week to 10 days with a badly pulled thigh muscle in his right leg. He had to be carried from the field in the first inning of the opener. Dick Stuart hit a two - run homer and Johnny Callison also connected to send 20-game winner Ray Sadecki down to his fourth straight loss. Art Mahaffey, making his first start since last September, aUowed only five St. Louis hits before being relieved by Ed Roebuck in the ninth. Giants retain their hex, down LA. Dodgers 6-3 from Brooklyn said, "and I also had good stuff. I usually pitch all right against this team but haven't done any winning recently." Koufax, who fired a no- hitter past the Giants two-years ago Tuesday, was charged with his second loss of the season against three wins during a tense eighth inning. Willie Mays opened it by drawing a walk and Jim Ray Hart singled him to third. Jay Alou, who had hit a two run homer off Sandy in the fourth inning, tied the game with a single that scored Mays. The hits sent Koufax to the showers. Jim Davenport next SAN FRANCISCO (UPD- The San Francisco Giants retained their hex over the magnificent Sandy Koufax today even if they have trouble beating anybody else. After sustaining a 9-0 shellacking from the Los Angeles Dodgers on Don Drysdale's three-hitter Saturday, the Giants downed the league leaders and Koufax, 6-3, Sunday. A Sunday crowd of 40,596— Ihe largest to brave the gales this year at Candlestick Park- watched the Giants erupt for four runs in the eighth inning to defeat the Dodgers and check their winning streak at five straight. This also cut Koufax's lifetime mark over the Giants to 11-10 and left him without a win in the local park since Sept. 6, 1963. Last year, Sandy dropped both of his two decisions against the Giants. But he still can fan them. He retired 13 on strikeouts in the seven plus innings he worked Sunday and now has struck out ten or more men 62 times in his career. Southpaw Johnny Podres (2-0) is listed to start for the Dodgers tonight in Los Angeles when they host the surging Houston Colts and Dick Farrell (3-1).

The speeds were forgotten, however, when 1963 champion Pamelli Jones, Torrance, Calif., went out for a few last laps shortly before closing time. "I was coming off the No. 2 turn when I suddenly heard a rattling," Jones said. "I thought it was a piston or rod going out so I shoved the car out of gear and turned her off." It wasn't a rod or gear. As Jones' rear-engine Lotus-Ford slowed, the right rear wheel came off in tlie backstretch. It was later determined the hub had broken. Jones said he was going only "25 or 30 when the wheel came off. Thank God I wasn't standing on it." Earlier, he had been timed at 156.4 m.p.h.

A sacrifice fly by Ed Bailey and then Hal Lanier's sacrifice bunt brought in two more runs. Juan Marichal, who made a rare relief appearance and came out the winner, helped to nail down the triumph with a run scoring single. Jay Alou's two-run homer in the fourth came on what Koufax described as a "high pitch." But the Dodgers evened up the score, 2-2, in the sixth when Willie Davis powered his fourth of the year over the right field fence after Wes Parker had singled. Los Angeles took a 3-2 lead in the eighth as pinch-hitter Wally Moon delivered a bases loaded single off Marichal who had just taken over for Japan's Masanori Mb-akami. There were two out when Moon, now four for four as a pinch hitter and with four RBI's in that capacity, connected off Don Juan. Ron Fairly sought to streak home from second to score on the infield hit, a chopper that bounced over Marichal's head and rolled out toward second. But Lanier got the ball and nailed him on the throw to catcher Jack Hiatt. The play retired the side. Marichal had taken over after Murakami who was placed on the active list Saturday night, first had hit John Roseboro to load the bases then got Jim Lefebvre on a called third strike. The shuffling developed when Lou Johnson, a right handed hitter, came up to face southpaw Murakami. Franks then waived in right-hander Marichal and Johnson was replaced by the southpaw swingmg Moon. In this case. Moon got his hit mstead of becoming just another at bat.

Trailing the Dodgers by only two games and in a tie for second place, the Astros called on an ex-Dodger, Dick Farrell, to hurl in the opener. Farrell is 3-1 thus far in 1965 and he opposes Johnny Podres. 2-0, who takes another big step along his comeback trail in fseeking a win over the Astros. Houston's ascent to the first division came on a 10-game winning streak. The string of victories started after the - Astros had gotten off to a slow 2-6 start.

(UPI)—Ratcliffe Stadium, Fresno State's "home of World records," added some more to its imposing list today thanks to the usual cluster of brilliant performances Saturday at the 39th annual Fresno Relays. Stanford's 440 yard relay team, a comparative outsider, shocked the experts by breaking the world mark with a time of 39.7. Then Oklahoma State's Aggies sent another world standard crashing in taking the two mile relay in 7:18.3. The Indians, with star dash- man Larry Questad running the anchor lap after he had won the 100 yard dash in a hot 9.3 lowered the record of 39.9 set by an Australian team in 1964. The rest of the tribe team was made up of Eric Frische, Dale Rubin and Bob Mclnlyre. Oklahoma S t a t e's Jimmie Metcalf, John Terry.

Robinson ignores broken thumb, p/nc/] hits winner Indians chalk up three wins By United Press International The Stanford Indians just keep pulling away from the field in the powerful California Intercollegiate Baseball Association. The Indians clialked up three victories during the weekend, including a 2-1 squeaker over Southern California Friday in a battle between the nation's two top - ranked college teams. With the big one out of the way, tiie Stanford team breezed to a pair of victories over the University of California at Santa Barbara Saturday by scores of 10-0 and 4-1. The loss to Stanford apparently took its toll on the Trojans. They suffered two more defeats S a t u r d ay at Berkeley, ' By United Press International Brooks Robmson's thumb resembled a small tomato. The thumb was fractured and Baltimore Manager Hank Bauer was forced to remove the American League's most valuable player of 1964 from the starting Imeup in the second game of Sunday's doubleheader for the first time in 29 games. Robinson was taken to a hospital, supposedly lost to tl^e team for three to 10 days. "But it wouldn't surprise me if Robinson is in there sooner," ventured Bauer, "because he's the kind of guy who doesn't know what it's like not to play." Sure enough, m the 12th inning of the second game with the Orioles and Detroit Tigers deadlocked 4-4, up stepped Robinson as a pinch-hiter. He drove a single past pitcher Fred Gladdmg, moved to second when Gladding hit Paul Balir and scored the winning run on Norm Siebem's two-out smgle. The triumph gave the Orioles a 7-1 and 5 -4 sweep of the Tigers. Finishes Out Game Robinson injured the thumb Saturday when he was hit by a Hank Aguirre pitch in the fifth inning. He played the entire game and the first four innings pain became unbearable. He was dispatched to the hospital for x-rays where the fracture was discovered, but then returned to the park for possible pinch-hitting duties. "They said it would take 10 days for the swellmg to go down," Robinson revealed "but that it would be up to me to play when I felt I could. It does not hurt me to swing a bat, but I have trouble throwing. Luckily, I won't have to have a cast put on." Al Kaline and WilUe Horton George Knudsen nurses one-stroke lead in Texas today. He had parred the first two holes, which was as far as he got before the siren's wail called the players off the course, in much the same steady stroking that had marked his 68-71-70 — 209 thus far. So did Australia's Crampton, who packed a 71-68-71—210 into the final round. But Lema had started out par-bogey and fallen off the pace from his 71-69-70— 210 for 54 boles. Juan Rodriguez and Doug Sanders, who finished the three- quarters pole three strokes back at 212 with Al Geiberger, Don January, Gardner Dickinson and Julius Boros had picked up first hole burdies and had caught Lema in third place. 12 Whittier 001 301 1—6 9 4 U. of Redlands 005 001 1—7 12 4 SECONR GAME Whittier AB R.
