Evening, May M, Nta. Logansport, Indiana, PliaroK-Tribune Thirteen Wes Parmeter Receives Smith Award Casey Gets Rude Reception In LA By MILTON RICHMAN UPI Sports Writer Disenchanted Casey Stengel is getting up bright and early today to track down that smart aleck who would have everyone believe there is no place like home. Casey thinks that's just a lot of sentimental pap. In a way you can't blame him. He came home Wednesday night to Glendale Calif, for the first tdme since last winter and among those who were delighted to see him were the Los Angeles Dodgers who promptly hung a 3-1 shiner on his'New York Mets to climb with 1% games of the National League lead. Fine way to welcome a fella home wasn't it? The inhospitable Dodgers did the job up brown. First they let Casey sample some of that good home cooking. They even sat haok quietly while many of his Glendale neighbors among the crowd of 19,985 at Chavez Ravine greeted him and cheered him before the game. Then The Works Then they went out and gave him Ihe works coming up with a pair of runs in the eighth off ex-teammate Roger Craig to break a 1-1 tie. Ron Fairly's sacrifice fly with the bases full scored the. tie-breaking run and another run came 'over when Frank Howard hit into a fielder's choice. Don Drysdale stopped the Mets on four hits striking out seven and walking only one for his sixth victory compared with three defeats. A sidelight on the game was Craig's valiant efforts to keep the fleet Dodgers from running wild on the bases. After Maury Wills singled in the third inning Craig threw over to first baseman Ed Bouchee nine times to keep Wills from getting any ideas. The Met. pitcher finally balked Wills to second from where he scored tfie Dodgers' first run on Jim Gil'Iiam's double. Btics Beat Cards In other National League games the Pittsburgh Pirates snapped the St. Louis Cardinals' six-game winning streak 0-3; Hie Philadelphia Phillies handed the first-place San Francisco Giants their third straight defeat 10-7; the Houston Colts blanked the Cincinnati Reds 2-0 and the Milwaukee Braves beat the Chicago Clubs 4-2.
