Six Logansport. Indiana, Risros-Tribune Monday Evening, Mjy 14, 1962. Indians Whip Yanks Twice; Cubs Win 2 Giants Hold Four Game Lead in ML By JOE SARGIS UPI Sports Writer Chuck Essegian, the chunky outfielder with the musical name, came to the Cleveland Indians for a song, and from the way he's rapping the ball of late it's the prettiest tune heard anywhere by manager Mel McGaha. In fact, Essegian, who wasn't counted on for regular duty when the season began, is wielding such a hot bat that he is making it downright difficult for. the platoon conscious McGaha to keep him out of the starting lineup. Chuck, a failure with five different major league clubs before the Indians got him from the Kansas City Athletics a year ago for pitcher Julius Grant, hit a key home run and single. Sunday to lead. Cleveland to a 6-4 and 8-5 sweep over the New York Yankees and into first place in the American League. Essegian had five hits in eight at-'bats during the long afternoon to boost, his batting average to .375, his home run total to four and his runs batted in to 11 in 17 games. Wins Sixth Game Dick Donovan went all the way in the opener to register his sixth victory without a loss. It also was the veteran right-hander's second win of the year over the Yankees, whom the Indians now have beaten five times in seven, games. The second-game victory went to Barry Latman, second of three Cleveland pitchers. The Indians tagged Whitey Ford for nine of their 11 hits in the opener, John Romano hitting a three-run homer right at the start to make things easier for Donovan Essegian hit his homer in the fifth after the Yankees had cut the deficit to 3-2. Jerry Kindall's three-run homer in the second game started the Indians on a comeback after the Yankees had built up a 5- lead. Essegian's sixth innngi single broke a 5-5 tie and Cleveland went on from there to nail down the second game and take a half- £ame lead in the AL. The Minnesota Twins routed the Kansas City Athletics, 10-3; the Chicago White Sox rallied for seven runs in the eighth inning to beat the Los Angeles Angels, 156; the Baltimore Orioles beat the Washington Senators, 3-2, on a disputed homer, and the Detroit Tigers nipped the Boston Red Sox, 6-5, in other AL games. Giants Win Again In the National League, the first-place San Francisco Giants downed the Houston Colts, 7-2; the Los Angeles Dodgers took advantage of loose St. Louis play to beat the Cardinals, 4-3; the Cincinnati Reds beat the Pittsburgh Pirates, 6-4; the Milwaukee Braves nipped the New York Mets, 3-2, and the Chicago Cubs climbed out of the cellar by beating the Philadelphia Phillies twice, 8-7 and 8-5.

Johnson Wins One Fight, Loses Another PHILADELPHIA (UPI)'' —Manager Pat Olivieri confers today with his attorney and a representative of a German fight promoter on a possible contract for Harold Johnson, light heavyweight champion, to defend against Gustav OBubi) Scholtz in Germany next month. But Johnson, who won almost universal recognition as champion Saturday night with a unanimous, 15-round decision over Doug Jones of New York, wanted no part of it. "If Olivieri signs for any bouts, he better be ready to fight them himself," the champion said. Olivieri was equally adamant that Johnson would not carry out his plans of meeting heavyweight Zora Folley in New York on June 9. The manager .pointed out that he has a court injunction preventing Johnson from signing for any bouts without his (Olivieri's) approval. "If he doesn't fight for me, he isn't going to fight at all," Olivieri said. The manager hoped, however, that his attorney, Thomas Me- Bride, could convince Johnson's attorneys -to persuade the boxer to agree to any contract reached with Fred Sommers of Los Angeles. Sommers represents German promoter Fritiz Gretzschel, who offered .Johnson $50,000 to defend against Scholz in Germany next month. George Gainford, hired by Johnson as manager after he had broke with Olivieri in January, agreed to the fight but Gretzschel wired Sommers that only Olivieri's signature would make a contract valid.
