Wednesday Evening, May 16, 1962 Miller Saves Pierces 5th Win Mets Down Cubs In Marathon Tilt By FRED DOWN UPI Sports Writer The San Francisco Giants' rivals may have forgotten about soft-spoken, sofl-lhrowing Slu Miller, but manager Alvin Dark hasn't. Miller, the litlle relief ace who had a J4-5 record and 2.66 earned '• run average last season, hadn't worked for the Giants since May 5. Part of the reason was the nine-inning roule-going ability of San Francisco pitchers and part •was the surprising early relief work of Don Larson. Miller was ready Tuesday night however, when lefty Bill Pierce faltered in the eighth inning of a 6-3 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals that kept the Giants' early National League lead at four games. Miller replaced Pierce after Doug Clemens and Ken Boyer singled to open the eighth and threaten the Giants 6-2 lead. The little curveballer yielded a run-scoring single by Gene Oliver but pitched out of the jam by retiring Julian Javier with the bases filled. Wins Fifth Straight The win was the fifth straight for Pierce, who needs only six more victories to reach the 200- mark for his career. The Giants backed him with an eight-hit attack and handed Curt Simmons his first defeat after five straighl triumphs. The Cincinnati Reds shaded the Philadelphia Phillies, 3-2, the Pittsburgh Pirates edged the Milwaukee Braves, 5-4, the Los Angeles Dodgers oulslugged Ihe Houslon Colts, 10-7, and the New York Mets beat the Chicago Cubs, 6-5, in a four-hour and 54-minute J3- inning contest. In the American League, the Minnesota Twins topped the Detroit Tigers, 4-2, the Boston Red Sox routed the New York Yankees, 144, the Kansas City A's downed the Cleveland Indians, (i-5, the Chicago White Sox beat the Washington Senators, 4-3, and the Baltimore Orioles scored a 7-1 victory over the Los Angeles Angels. Pinson Aids Jay Vada Pinson's 12th homer paved the way for Joey Jay lo win his fifth decision with late-inning relief help from Bill Henry, Dave Sisler and Ted Wills. The Dodgers scored six runs on' six hits and a walk with two out in the seventh inning to present relief pitcher Larry Sherry with his second triumph. Smoky Burgess' loth-inning single 1 scored Dick Groat with the decisive run for the Pirates, who snapped a six-game losing streak. Rookie Denis Menke accounted for all the Braves' runs wilh a grand slam homer. Rookie Cal 'Koonce walked Hobie Landrilh with the bases filled and two out in the 13th inning to force in the Mets' winning run and end an ordeal of frustration in which 37 players saw action. The Mets left 19 runners on base and the Cubs wasted two homers by George Altaian and solo homers by Ernie Banks and Billy Williams. Twins Move Close The Twins moved to within a half game of the AL lead wilh the aid of homers by Vic Power and Harmon Killebrew. Jack Kralick went seven innings lo win his third game while Frank Lary, making his first -appearance since April 26, suffered the loss. The Red Sox scored nine runs in the sixth inning to deal Ralph • Terry his fourth loss and bring Bill Monbouquette his third win. Norm Siebern drove in four runs with two homers to' reward Dave Wickersham's three innings of sturdy relief with his third victory. Willie Kirkland, Chuck Essegian and John Romano homered for Cleveland. Al Smith's two-run double was the big blow for the White Sox, who rallied from a 3-2 deficit in the eighth inning. Ray Herbert •won his third game while Tom Cheney lost his first decision of the season. Rookie John Powell hit two homers and drove in four runs as the Orioles best the Angels behind the four-hit, Ifl-strikeout pitching of Milt Pappas.

Chicago Still In Running For Big Tiff NEW YORK (UPD—Floyd Patterson has reinstated Chicago as one of four possible cities for his September heavyweight title defense against Sonny Liston. The other three sites under consideration are Detroit, Washington, D.C., and Las Vegas, Nev,, Floyd announced Tuesday night. /He added that (he site will be picked before Sunday by manager Cus D'Amato. When Patterson made his announcement at the offices of attorney Julius November, his inclusion of Chicago as a possible site was a surprise. Only last week Floyd and his manager had ruled Chicago out because a group there had made the mistake of negotiating with promoters of the fight instead of with D'Amalo. Although Championship Sports, Inc., of New York will promote the muVti - million-dollar fight, wherever staged, Championship Sports cannot select the fight city, Patterson emphasized. Only D'Amato is authorized to do that.

League Leading Anderson Nips Logansport In Thriller, 4-3 Jf you were at Riverside Park Tuesday aflernoon to watch the Logansport - Anderson baseball game yqu probably left disappointed with the results, but you did see one heck of a good ball game. Anderson came to town without a loss on its North Central Conference record and left the same way—by the skin of it's nose. A couple of mental errors and the stranding of three men on base after starting what appeared to be a rally with no one out, left Logansport 'on the short end of the stick. Tom Gaby of Logansport and Anderson's Sieve Cummins hooked up in a real tense battle for Ihe first four innings with neither team able'to muster a score. In .the bottom of the fourth inning the Berries probably lost the game for failure to score with the bases loaded and nobody out. Cummins walked the bases full and threw three straight balls to Brian Smith. But he got out of :he tough situalion without a run scoring. He finally fanned Smith and then struck out Bud Smith. Tohn< Jargslorf then lined out to 'irst base for the third oul. Anderson picked up three runs ^n the lop of- the fifth on three singles, a fielders choice and an error., The rally might have been much greater but for a well exe- BASEBALL WINS TO McKINLEY, VIKES, COLUMBIA McKinley's Hilltoppers walloped Jefferson 18-9 at Tower park; Columbia bombed Fairview's Falcons at Fairview diamond 11-2 and St. Vincent tripped Washington, in a tense bailie at Columbia field 4 to 2 in grade school baseball league action Tuesday.

Fred Hillis threw to Ed Maple at second who cut off the throw and fired to Hillis to get one runner. Hillis then threw to Brian Smith at third getting, the runner who came around from second. Wes Parmeter put Logan back in the game in the last of the fifth with a towering blast over the 360-foot marker in left centerfield. The home rim came after Paul Bauer singled and Maple walked. The winning run came in . the seventh inning when Bill Stanley hit a pinch-hit single, Jargstorf then threw wide to second base on a double-play attempt with the result leaving Anderson wilh runners on first and third. Stanley and Rex Robbins, the runner at first, again attempted the double steal with the results being almost the same. Freshman catcher Jack Hewitt threw to Maple at second who cut off the throw and threw Stanley out at the plate. Robbins held second. Cummins then won his own game with a single to left scoring Robbins. The contest was sharply played with both teams using all their tricks. Logan had the misfortune of seeing a couple backfire. An attempted bunt early in Ihe game, which was meant to sacrifice a runner, turned into a double play. The Berries garnered only three hits, two by Bauer and the home run by Parmeter. But Logan had nothing to be ashamed of—Anderson is a good champion.
