EIGHT IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN MONDAY, AUGUST 2,1965. Ironwood Little Leaguers Capture U.P. District Crown ( All-Stars Down Iron Mountain In 2-1 Battle The Ironwood Little L e a g ue All-Stars captured the Upp e r Peninsula District Little League Championship with a brilliant baseball performance, Sunday as they edged the Michigan- Wisconsin Iron Mountain E a st team by a score of 2-1 in a game played at Iron Mountain. The Ironwood squad earned the right to play in the championship affair with a 13-7 victory over Calumet in the semifinal contest played on Friday. The local Little League o f - ficials stated that they are now awaiting word from Green Bay on the Wisconsin state tournament details. Ironwood will take part in the state fin a 1 s sometime this week, officials stated, and as soon as the game details are relayed from Green Bay, they will be made public. The Irnowood nine lost little time in gaining the upper hand in the tightly played cont e s t Sunday as it scored a lone run in the first inning to take a slight 1-0 advantage. Both squads played scoreless ball in the second stanza but the winners came across with, what eventually turned out to be the winning run, in the bottom of the third inning. From that point on the contest was a battle of the pitchers as Joe Komaromy took thin g s in hand for Ironwood and hurled an outstanding game. Iron Mountain East threatened in the final inning but a heads-up Ironwood defense limited the losers to just a s i n g le run. Komaromy went the enti r e distance for Ironwood and a 1- lowed only one hit, walked three batters and struck out four. Aiding in the hitting department were Larry Passint, who came through to smack two singles and score one of t h e runs, while Rod Tafelski hit one single in one trip to t h e plate, James Lutey smashed out a pair of hits in two times at bat, Norm Backon got one single in three times at bat and Waiko Ipetz delivered a single in 2 times at bat. Iron Mountain pitcher Eugene Hayes allowed seven Ironwood hits, walked four and struck out five. The losers' only hit came in the final inning, a single off the bat of Dennis Edberg. League officials added that anyone wishing to donate to help pay for the Little Leaguers' trip to Green Bay may mail or drop their donations off at the National Metals Bank or Shea's City Service Station, Ironwood. Ironwood Iron Mountln East ABH H Baciha Maule Rapaiche Hayes Cloninger of Braves Extends His Mastery Over Top Teams By MURRAY CHASS Associated Press Sports Writer Milwaukee's Tony Cloninger wants to stay on the farm, and four National League pennant contenders would like the Braves to send him there immediately Cloninger extended his mastery over the Braves' first-division opposition Sunday, pitching a seven-hitter in Milwaukee's 42 first-game triumph over San Francisco. The Braves completed the doubleheader sweep, defeating the Giants 6-3 in the nightcap and moving into third place, 3V'2 games behind the league-leading Los Angeles Dodgers. The victory was Cloninger's 14th against eight defeats, but even more painful to the other teams in the first division it gave the North Carolina farmer a 7-0 record against the Dodgers, Cincinnati, San Francisco and Philadelphia. * * * In those seven games against ,he top contenders, Cloninger las gone the distance five times and 7 2-3 innings in the other AVO. His earned run average in the games is a sparkling 1.95 compared with 3.66 over-all.

Despite the slowdown with the bottom five teams, Cloninger is headed for the best of his five seasons in the majors. Last year, on his way to a 19-14 record, the Brave ace had only 10 victories at this time. Cloninger's also headed for a bigger and better farm. He now has 55 acres of land, six quarter horses, two bird dogs and six coon dogs. He soon hopes tc start raising quarter horses. * * * As far as those four teams are concerned, the sooner the better. In ether National League games, Los Angeles edged St. Louis ?-2, Cincinnati defeated Houston 6-4 before losing 7-6, Pittsburgh swept Chicago 8-2 and 3-1 and Philadelphia nipped New York 3-2. The Braves' sweep gtive them a 15-6 record since the All-Star break. Cloninger has won four of the games and lost none. MacK Jones paved the way foi Cloninger with a two-run homer against Ron Herbel in the first inning. Willie Mays had three of the Giants' seven hits, but Clon inger got him on a foul pop with the tying run on base in the seventh. Ed Mathews' 22nd homer, a three-run blast in the third, put the Braves ahead to stay in the nightcap. Billy O'Dell's ninth- inning relief job saved. Wade Blasingame's 13th victory in 20 Powell Turns From Goat to Hero With One Swing of Bat of a seven-game lead over the By HAL BOCK Associated Press Sports Writer It doesn't take much for a man Boog Powell's size to turn goat's horns Into a hero's halo. A swing here and there and the job's done. Powell, the strapping Baltimore Oriole slugger who stands 6-foot-3 and weighs 235 pounds, played turnabout against Minnesota Sunday and kept the Twins trom making a runaway of the American League race. It was Powell's three-run homer in the ninth inning that gave the Orioles a 7-6 come- from-behind victory over the Twins and deprived Minnesota U.P.

Reliever Ted Davidson scattered 11 hits 7 2-3 innings for his first major league victory. Joe Gaines singled across Houston's winning run in the ninth inning of the second game. The Astros charged to a 6-5 lead with three runs in the seventh, two on Bob Lillis' double, but Frank Robinson's 19th homer tied it in the Reds' half of the inning. Manny Mota and Donn Clendenon each stroked three hits and drove in two runs, supporting Al LIcBean's victory in his first start in two years. Don Schwall saved the triumph for McBean, pitching the last three innings for Pittsburgh. Joe Gibbon and Schwall combined to limit the Cubs to three hits in the nightcap. Gibbon didn't allow a hit until Larry Jackson led off the sixth with a triple and scored on Ellis Burton's sacrifice fly. Bill Virdon scored one Pittsburgh run and singled across another. Philadelphia's Jim Bunning won his 12th game but had to leave after seven innings because he reinjured his right ankle. John Callison hit a two-run homer, his 24th, and Tony Gonzalez added a bases - empty blast, offsetting a two-run homer by the Mets' Charley Smith CHICAGO (AP)—Little things do mean a lot. An untimely slip in the mud for instance. Hapless Hank Aguirre figures such a slip cost him Sunday's opening game with the Chicago White Sox. Detroit lost that one 1-0, but came back to take the nightcap 2-1. No one knew it at the time but the first game was lost in the second inning when Aguirre balked, advancing Pete Ward and Danny Cater a base each. Ron Hansen then hit a sacrifice fly and Ward scored after the catch. "My foot slipped on the mud[y mound," Aguirre said after he game. "I might have pre- ented the balk by throwing the ball, but I just didn't think quick enough. At the time I didn't think it would make the difference in the ball game, but, as it turned out, it did." The three Chicago players who were involved in scoring he lone run also were involved n a triple play by Detroit in the : ourth inning. Ward and Cater again singled, putting them on first and second. Hanson fanned, and the runners were :aught in a double run-down. Both runners wound up on second base. Cater was called out, and Ward, thinking the base belonged to his teammate, then walked off and was tripled by shortstop Dick McAuliffe. Jim Horlen was the winning pitcher, limiting Detroit to three lits to even his record at 9-9. Commented losing pitcher Aguirre: "I've hooked up with Horlen before in tough games and I hate to admit it but I usually come out second best.' Although Detroit went on tc take the second game, Manager Charlie Dressen was not overjoyed. All-Star Grid Game Highlights Week's Festivities in Chicago U. S. Track Team Is Dazed by Loss to Russian Men, Women By WILL GRIMSLEY Associated Press Sports Writer KIEV, U.S.S.R. (AP) — A dazed U.S. track and field team licked its wounds today from its worst debacle ever in international competition — a loss to the Russians — and asked: "How did it happen?" Were the Yanks too complacent and over-confident, as suggested by Russian Coach Gabriel Korobkov and seconded by high-ranking U.S. officials? Did many of their stars wear themselves out in a month of campaigning on the continent prior to the seventh annual U.S.- Soviet meet Saturday and Sunday in this picturesque capital of the Ukraine? Or was it simply a case of bad luck — mushrooming injuries that felled some of the best of the American athletes in the midst of the crucial meet? The Russians scored a sweep, winning both the men's and women's competition for the first time since the series was started in 1958. It marked the first time American men track and field stars had ever lost a meet of this kind. Scoring upsets in such American specialities as the pole vault and sprint relay and winning the 5,000 and 10,000-meter runs, In which the United States had Olympic champions, the Soviet team beat out the U.S. men 118112 and won for the seventh time from the women, as ex pected, 65V2-45'/2. It wasn't a complete disap pointment from the American standpoint. Wyomia Tyus of Griffin, Ga. established herself as the fast est woman runner in the world by winning the 100 meters in world record-tying time of 11. seconds, coming from far be hind to spearhead a victory in the 400-meter relay and then finishing second Sunday in the 200 meters behind Edith Me Guire. A 15-year-old doll of a school girl named Marie Mulder o North Highlands, Calif., had even the Russians cheering fo her in finishing a strong secon in the 800 meters with the fast est time ever recorded by an American woman — 2 minutes, 7.3 seconds. In the men's division, Ollan Gassell of Nutley, N.J., emerged as a giant 6y winning the 400 meters and then stealing the 1600-meter relay out from under the noses of the Russians with a come-from-behind anchor leg Big Randy Matson of Pampa, Tex., awed the Russians with a 66 foot, &A> inch shot put; six-foot-seven Dave Weill captured the discus with 192 feet, 5 inches and Jim Grelle, who won the 1,500 meter run in the first meet in 1958. did it again with a meet record of 3:39.2, By JOE MOOSHIL CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago becomes the nation's sport center this week with Friday night's 32nd annual College Ail- Star Football Game in Soldier Field highlighting festivities. The Ceveland Browns, champions of the National Football jeague, will provide the colle- ;ians with more than formidable opposition in the midsummer gridiron classic. Long before the kickoff, sports editors and football writes from throughout the nation will convene for a hectic schedule of meetings and gatherings. They were two tough ball game s," he said, adding they're all getting tough now.' Bill Freehan got the winning run for the Tigers when he scored all the way from second on Don Buford's infield error in the ninth inning. Freehan had doubled with two out against Tommy John. Af ter McAuliffe was passed de liberately, Jerry Lumpe batte for winning pitcher Dave Wick ersham and grounded to Buford The Chicago second baseman booted the ball, and Freehan dashed across with the winning Pontiac Golfer Cops State Title By BERNIE KENNEDY Associated Press Sports Wrker FLINT (AP) - A change of heart and a little more concentration helped put $1,000 in the wallet of Gene Bone of Pontiac Sunday. Bone, 32, head professional at Lancaster Hills in Southfield, won the 45th annual Michigan Open Golf Tournament by 11 strokes with a 14-under-par 274. His rounds on the IMA Brookwood Golf Course were 68-67-69— 70. "I was ready to pull out of this tourney two weeks ago,' Ol lt° wa? also Powell who tried to short-hop Earl Battey a eighth inning hit and let the ball get by. allowing the Twins to score two runs instead of one. That broke a 4-4 tie and gave Minnesota reliever Al Wprthlng- ton a two-run margin going into the ninth . Worthington got the first out but that was all. He walked Luis Aparicio and Jackie Brandt, bringing up Powell. Sam Meie brought on southpaw Dick Stigman to face the left-handed hitter. * * * "Stlgman got two strikes on me with curves on the corners, Powell said later. "I was looking for a breaking pitch because that's all they were throwing me. I hit a curve ball, over the inside half of the plate." The ball sailed 385 feet into the right field bleachers for Powell's ninth home run of the season. Meanwhile, Cleveland moved within SV'a games of the lead by splitting a doubleheader against New York. Sam McDowell's three-hitter won the nightcap 4-1 after three Yankee homers had powered New York to a 10-6 victory in the opener. Elsewhere in the American League. Chicago and Detroit split two, with the White Sox winning the opener 1-0 for Joe Horlen but the Tigers coming back for a 2-1 victory in the nightcap behind Dave Wickersham. Kansas City and Wash- 5 Net Tourney Matches Played WAKEFIELD — Five matches were played Sunday in the Invitational Tennis Tournament which is now in progress and will continue throughout the week here.

Tourney officials are now accepting entries for doubles competition to be played this weekend. Doubles will only be played in the men's division and entries will be accepted until Friday. Football will not be the only sports activity on the agenda. Three big stakes races are scheduled at Arlington Park, with Darby Dan Farm's highly touted 2-year-old Graustark making his stakes debut in Friday's $50.000-added Arch Ward Stakes' named for the late sports editor of the Chicago Tribune, who originated the All- Star Game. Tom Rolfe, winner of the Preakness, will be favored in the 3100,000-added Chicagoan Saturday. Then there's the Western Junior Girls Golf Tournament in suburban Lake Forest. And the Chicago White Sox will be home. Vice President Hubert Humphrey will arrive Friday to be the principal speaker at the main meeting of the Football Writers' Association of America the day of the game. The game will find the run. It was Wickersham's fourth victory in 13 days after the righthander struggled with a 1-8 record over the first three months of the season. The White Sox took the lead Ohio Boy Is Winner Of Junior Golf Meet COLOMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Brian Kotzin, a 16-year-old Columbus area golfer won the rain curtailed Midwest District Junior Open Golf Tournament Sunday with a 27-hole total of 105. Kotzin copped the 15-to-17- year old division honors with a Browns heavily favored. But the All-Stars are capable of pulling surprises, as they have in the past. Coach Otto Graham has some excellent talent, especially when it comes to passing, Football's most potent weapon on offense. At his disposal are such quarterbacks as Roger Staubach of Navy, John Huarte of Notre Dame and Craig Morton of California. On the receiving end will be Fred Biletnikoff of Florida State. Jack Snow of Notre Dame and Bob Hayes of Florida A&M to name a few. In past games, the All-Stars have come up with sufficient punch much of the time. Their trouble comes in protecting against the pro passing attack. Last year, the All-Stars had the Chicago Bears down 10-7 at the half. But a series of defensive miscues in the second half resulted in a 28-17 Bear triumph. Bone confessed. "I was not hitting the ball well and was just in a bad frame of mind." "I layed'off the game for a while but played every day after talking things way over with a couple of my friends. When I decided to stick with it and play ir this tourney, I felt all I wanted to do was to make a creditable showing." His snare of the $6,000 Professional Pot was not his biggest check. He won $1,300 with a tie for 6th in the Texas Open in 1963 when he took a fling with the pro tour. Bone, who has been close a number of times but never before a champion, said Walter Burkemo of Birmingham, who finished in a tie for second, best summed up the victory. "You got so far ahead you forgot how to choke," said Burkemo. Bone was tied for the lead after the first round, took it all alone with a 67 Saturday and never was headed. Mike Hill of Jackson, brother of touring pro Dave Hill, tied with Burkemo at 285. Bone finished by getting birdies on four of the last five holes. "I never gave myself a chance to be neVvous," Bone said. "I just wanted to keep playing the best game I could. I lined up every putt and must confess I got a few lucky ones."
