JIM HOGAN JOHN JENKINS DEREK SHELTON DAVE WEGNER TED ACRES BOB BECK Sandy Koufax mows down 13 Astros, gives no walks "My curve broke better" Koufax of opinion he pitched his best game LOS ANGELES (UPD—A happy grin on his face, Sandy Koufax today felt he pitched his best game of the season Thursday night when he shit out the Houston Astros 3-0 and struck out 13 batters. The star Los .Angeles Dodgers lefthander, a question mark earlier in the season because of an arthritic condition in his left elbow, demonstrated he had returned to the pitching form that two years ago made him the Cy Young Award winner as the top hurler in tlie major leagues. Koufax gave up hut three hits, two of them singles by Eddie Kasko. He did not walk a Field of 70 set to race at Orange Show A field of more than 70 top cars and drivers will be in action tomorrow night at the Orange Show Speedway, starting at 8:30 p.m. Heading the big field is a trio of desert drivers; "Bobo" Cotton and Bill Speaks of Indio and Cecil BuUard, Palm Springs. They will be out to beat the local speedsters in the evening's eight event program. "Bobo" Cotton, driving h i s Chief Sign Crafts Ford stocker, has looked sharp in recent races and is due for a win.

It was the 63rd time in his career that Koufax had struck olt 10 or more men in a game and it lengthened his lead in that department over Bob Feller and Rube Waddell who performed the feat 54 times before retirement. "My curve broke better than it has at any time this season," Koufax commented. "I also had a good fast ball and those two pitches were all I needed." But Koufax said he was not thinking of the number of strikeouts he made during the game. "I don't think about striking out a hitter until I have two strikes on him. The most important thing is to get him out. I thought the ninth inning was my best of the game and I didn't strike out a batter. "But I got the first man on three pitches, the ne.xt on two and the third man grounded out on the first pitch," he said. Koufax had been hampered earlier in the season by a pulled leg muscle that prevented him from running. But for the past week he has been able to run and thus strengthen his legs. Maury Wills, the all-time stolen base king who set a record of 104 thefts in 1962, pilfered his 18th and 19th bases Monday night in the Dodgers' 27th game. When he set the record he did not get his 19th stolen base until the 39th game. The game, however, almost shape for the Orange Show, Races.

Ernie Broglio lost his third game this season without a victory. Deron Johnson's low throw permitted Frank Thomas to reach first base safely with two out in the 10th inning while in Mexico and has vowed to continue his winning ways at San Bernardino this summer. Bill Speaks of Indio also wheels a Ford-powered stock car and will team up with Cotton to beat the local talent.

"I figure I'll keep riding for another 10 years,'' he said. "Why not'? I'm in the best physical and mental shape of my Hfe. And riding horses doesn't really become work unless you go for weeks without a winner. That seldom happens." Rotz estimates he has ridden anywhere from 1.000 to 1.500 races in his time and won between 15 and 20 per cent of them. Some railbirds refer to him as "Gentleman John" although he can see no special reason for it. "I'm no more gentlemanly than others," he said. "The only reason I can see why they might caU me that is because my first name is John. I don't think they'd call me that if my first name were Irving or Bill." Rotz smiled. Maybe he will again Saturday night. m numerous other events. baker's dozen top performers and running teams were the chief attractions tonight at the 25th annual Coliseum Relays with shot putter Randy Matson of Texas A & JI the center of attraction. Matson is one of 10 athetes lioldiiig the best 1965 marks in their events who will compete alone with three of the best relay teams in the nation. The powerful Texas A & M! sophomore, h o w eve r. has aroused tlie most interest since he broke the 70-foot baiTier in the shot with a throw of 70-7 last week. .And Matson will double up by tlirowing the discus in which he holds the national collegiate mark. The shot put has been a Southern California - dominated event for years with first Parry O'Brien and then Dallas Long setting records. But Matson has been breaking records almost every time he has thrown. The meet, however, has stars MR. SANDMAN—Canada's George Knudson, left, and Sam Snead, are having similar troubles with sandtraps. Knudson looks surprised with his shot while Snead appears to be a bit troubled. Knudson got his par but Snead took a bogey. Among these top performers are Grambling's Dick Stebbins with a 9.2 second time in the 100: Mahoney Samuels who broke the collegiate record in the triple jump with a leap of 52 feet 5: Clarence Robmson of .\ew Mexico wiio has a long jump effort of 26 -9U; Roy Hicks of Texas Southern who posted a 13.6 second time in the high hurdles: Ulis Williams oi Arizona State with a 46.1 time in the 440: Clyde Duncan of Texas Southern who ran the 220 in 20.5 and numerous others. Included among the feature attractions were two youngsters, one a college freshman and the otlier a high school star. Gerry Lindgren will try for a new national frosh mark in the two-mile while prep star Paul Wilson will attempt to better his mark of 16-6?i in the pole vault, the best effort in the nation this year for anyone. The relay events are highlighted by the 440 m w^hiich the world-record Stanford team will compete against the speedy Grambling quartet headed by Stebbins. Other lop relay events include the two-mile in which UCLA's Bob Day will anchor the Bruin team in quest of a new record. Record or near- record times w'ere expected also in the 880 and mile relays. Other teams competing in the relay events include Villanova, Texas Soutliem, North Carolina, New Mexico, San Jose State, California and Southern California.

But the second choice was Tom Rolfe. who finished third in the Kentucky Derby. Trainer Frank Whitely insisted that Tom Rolfe had to be considered a doubtful starter. The coll is stabled at Laurel and the trainer said he would not van him to Pimlico until Saturday and then "only if everything is perfect." But Swift Ruler, Needles' Count.
