He scored when Ron Garcia singled and the Pacific shortstop caused interference as Miller ran the bases. Terrier nine smashes Pacific in Ring injuries fatal to Banks in Phitadelphia PHILADELPHI.A. (UPI) Heavyweight boxer Lucian (Sonny) Banks of Detroit died early today in Presbyterian Hospital of brain injuries received Monday night when he was knocked out by Leotis Martin in a bout at the arena. The 24-year-oId fighter had been unconscious, except for a brief rational period in. his dressing room, since the knockout. Death came to the 207- pound journeyman boxer at 4:35 a.m. The fatal blow was a right to the temple by the 182-pound Martin in the ninth round of their scheduled 10-round bout as the two fighters traded lefts and rights to the head on even terms. Banks slumped to the floor and his head struck the canvas. He was counted out with one second remaining in the round. The fighter was not revived immediately and he was carried to his dressing room on a stretcher. He regained consciousness after treatment by physicians but he was taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure for further examination. He lost consciousness again and an emergency operation was performed Tuesday mommg to remove a blood clot from his brain. Banks, who once put heavyweight champion Cassius Clay on the canvas only to lose to him, suffered "brain damage and a sub-dural hematoma" from Martin's pimch and the striking of his head on the floor, according to Dr. Robert S. Andre, the neuro-surgeon who performed the operation. A sub-dural hematoma is a blood clot which forms between the dura, or third layer of the skull, and the brain, a result of hemorrhaging after a severe concussion. Frank Wfldman Jr., chairman of the Pennsylvania State Athletic Commission, said after the operation that the bout had been a "tough, bruising fight" and the injury "could have happened to anybody." He said he planned no investigation and he pointed out that both fight ers were "in excellent physical condition" before the bout. Until the time the fatal blow ended the fight, Banlts had appeared to be the eventual victor. Less than two minutes ear- her, he had staggered his opponent with a vicious right which caused Martin to go into a clinch to regain composure. Then came the flurry of punches which ended in the tragic knockout. Martin was unavailable for comment after learning of Bank's death. His manager, WilUam (Pinny) Schaefer, issued a statement in which Martin was quoted as saying "There isn't any word that we can say. I think it's terrible. We're all upset. What are wc gomg to do just to pass our condolences onto the family." Redlands Daily facts Ihurs, May 13,19M - 13 KiHebrew slams two homers for Minnesota By United Press International Late-blooming Harmon Killebrew and Pete Ward may be the one-two punch that will knock the Yankees out for good. KiUebrew, of the American League leading Minnesota Twins and Ward of the second- place Chicago White Sox, were ineffective as the leading power hitters for their teams this season until the last 10 days. Now, they're going like gangbusters while the crippled New York Yankees have lost eight of their last 11 games. KiUebrew slammed two home runs, the second a two-run, eighth - inning blast which pulled the Twins to a 4-3 triumph over the Los Angeles Angels Wednesday night. Ward belted a home run, two doubles and a single and drove in four runs as the White Sox swept a doubleheader from Kansas City 7-4 and 6-4. In other AL games Boston blanked the Yankee 2-0, Baltimore whipped Cleveland 4-2 and Detroit defeated Washington 5-2. In the National League New York trimmed St. Louis 2-1, In the first inning, shortstop Frank Lopez led the way when he beat out a bunt for a single and then went to second on an error. Ron Garcia was safe wen Pacific tried to catch Lopez at third. Basil Lobaugh popped out and then Redlands leading slugger, Les Cowen .436, came to bat. Cowen singled to drive in Lopez. Tim Van Horn slapped a sharp single between first and second sending Cowen to thrid and scoring Garcia. A long fly by Gary Crowther sent Cowen across the plate for the final run of the inning. The five-run second inning saw the first three Terriers walk and then Garcia single. The single drove in catcher Allan McCall and Mike Miller was sent in from third to home following an interference call on the play on the Pacific shortstop. Cowen singled driving in Lopez and then Van Horn collected another single driving in Garcia and Cowen.

Then one afternoon there was a scuffle at second base and Robinson, a lonely figure, H needed support. Pee Wee Reese 2 came over and in front of all 2 the people put his arms around 1 Jackie's shoulders. And right 3 there the White man had ac- 2 cepted the fact of the Negro 0 ball player. 0 "Funny thing," says Pee Wee, 0 "I've gotten a lot of credit. But 1 I don't remember the incident 1 or putting my arms around him 0 at all." 0 He does remember kidding 12 Jackie, at the height of the abuse being poured on the first " Negro ball player in big league " history, "Stay away from me. 1 man. You're dangerous." 2 This was when Jackie re- 1 ceived threatening letters in 0 southern fringe cities where the 1 Dodgers played. They were on 2 opposite sides of second base 1 taking infield practice, and Rob- 1 inson was in his two-year in- 0 cubation period of "turn-the-oth- Los Angeles beat Houston 4-2, Milwaukee toppled Pittsburgh 5-4, Cincinnati edged Philadelphia' 4-3, and Chicago took San Francisco 7-3. KiUebrew, the only AL slugger since Babe Ruth to lead the league in home runs lor three consecutive seasons ('62, '63, '64), did not connect for his first this year imlil May 2. In his last 11 games, however, he has hit five out of the park. Ward didn't hit his first homer until May 7 and was struggling along with a .250 average. But in the last 10 games he is batting at a .400 clip and has raised his average to .313. Bob Lee, who had not allowed the Twins a nm in two years, was the victim of KiUebrew's game - winning wallop in the eighth. Lee had pitched 14 scoreless innings of relief against Minnesota. Albie Pearson homered for the Angels off Jim Grant. Al Worthington was the winner in relief. Dick Green hit his first grand slammer in the opener for Kansas City and Jim GentUe and Bill Bryan connected in tlie nightcap for the A's but it wasn't enough. Orlando Pena (0-5) and Fred Talbor (2-2) were the losers while relievers Ted Wills and Tommy Johns (both 2-0) picked up the victories for Chicago. BiU Monbouquette blanked the Yankees to pick up his loth victory in 26 decisions against New York. Monbouquette allowed only six hits and Ed Bressoud gave him all the margin he needed with a solo homer in the fifth. The Red Sox picked up an unearned run in the sixth off loser Jim Bouton (3-3). Throws Five-Hitter Dave McNally scattered five hits and rookie Paul Blair ignited a four-run first inning with a leadoff homer for the Orioles. Starter Luis Tiant failed to retire a man in the first, but relievers Lee Slange and Don JIc- Mahon held Baltimore to a single hit the rest of the way. WUlie Horton belted three hits including his second home run in two niglits and drove in a pair of runs in Detroit's verdict over Washington. Joe Sparma. (1-1) witli relief help from Fied Gladding, was credited with the victory and Mike McCormick (1-2) was the loser.

Chapman had been the manager at Philadelphia when Robinson broke in, and the Phillies had been the most abusive of all teams on the color question. This day at Tampa, Robinson was nursing a sore hand during infield drill, and Chapman chided him about taking it easy on the "tootsie-wootsie" hand. And after a while, Robinson walked straight across Reese's position at shortstop and up to Chapman. He said, "I've taken all I'm going to take from you. You say one more word, and we're going to have it out under the stands." "Jackie," remembers Reese.;, j j„ore home runs al "wasaguywho^could_take__care|the time than any shortstop in Prather's stiffest competition comes from his brother Jerry, who wheels an oldsmobile.

EXHIBITIONS SET NEW YORK (UPI) — The Houston Oilers will provide the opposition for New York in the Jets' first of five exhibition games on Aug. 7 at Alexandria, Va. The Jets also play Boston twice — on Aug. 13 at Allentown, Pa., and Aug. 28 at Norfolk, Va. — and the .American Football League champion Buf falo Bills twice — on Aug. 21 at New Brunswick, N. J., and Sept. 2 at Buffalo — before opening the regular season on Sept. 12 in Houston's new domed stadium. PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (UPI)—Doug Sanders, who has started in twice as many tournaments as Jack Nicklaus, has taken the PGA prize money lead away from Nicklaus on the strength of an eighth place finish in the Colonial Invitation tourney. Sanders, competmg in 16 tournaments compared to Nicklaus' eight, stepped into the Professional Golfers Association top spot with $36,107.78 won on the tour. He has added another $9,449.65 earned from unsanc tioned tourneys, which do not count in the official standings, it was announced Wednesday. Nicklaus, who passed up the Colonial, held down the runner- up position with $34,400 banked on the tour and another $10, 575.99 collected from unofficial tourneys. Bruce Cramplon of Australia jumped into third place after his four-stroke victory in the Colonial. Cramplon has pocketed $25,670.17 officially while adding another $12,083.89 from unsanctioned competition. George Knudson ($4,849.05 unofficially) is fourth with $24,125 while Billy Casper, who is fifth officially with $23,367.08, is tops in overall earnings with a com- bmed total of $47,335.22. Patterson faces Herring in Stockholm STOCKHOLM (UPI)—Former heavyweight champion Floyd Patterson lakes on little-known Texan Carl (Tod) Herrmg of Houston Friday night in a scheduled 10-rounder that could be a prelude to a title fight. Patterson, at 30 describing himself "better than ever," has his eyes firmly set on the heavyweight throne, and he thinks he stands a good chance if Cassius Clay beats Sonny Listen at Lewislon, Maine, May 25. The two-time champion did not hesitate a moment in say- mg he'll beat Herring. In fact, he is so sure of winning that he has scheduled an extensive tour of exhibition fights in northern Sweden, starting only two days after his date with Herring at Stockholm's Johanneshov Ice Stadium. Patterson, appearing at a news conference today, said, "I feel be iter tlian ever. "I can't really think I'm gon na lose to Herring," he confessed. "I admit 1 know very little about the guy, and I've never seen him fight, but I'm tops now." Patterson said he prefers to speak about his future, which mcludes a possible scrap for the title he lost so ungraciously to Liston and failed to regam in a humUiating rematch. "I've but one goal left in boxing today—to win the title back," he said. "Clay has promised me a fight, and I do hope he'll beat Liston May 25." If things work out that way, and Clay and Patterson can agree to a title bout, it might as well be staged in Sweden, matchmaker Eddie Ahlquist said.
