Friday Evening, May 25, 1362. Loganspo::t, Indiana, Pharos-tribune Scheffing, Hitchcock Close To Battle Baltimore Blasts Bunning's Buckle By MILTON RICHMAN UPI Sports Write- When two big league managers square off against each other, that's really news! Bob Scheffing of Detroit and Billy Hitchcock of Baltimore did Thursday night and in a way, it's a shame the umpires kept them apart. Both men are in fine condition even though they're in their 40's and it probably would have been a whale of a scrap. The trouble all came about during the ninth inning of a game which the Tigers won, 54, on Ori. ole catcher. Charlie Lau's passed ball in the llt'h. Hitchcock had complained from the eighth inning on to plate umpire John Schwarts that Tiger starter Jim Sunning was using his belt buckle to put nicks in the baseballs he was throwinig. Finally, in the ninth, Hitchcock went out to the Bunning's mound to belt buckle Gary Roosevelt Heavy Track Favorites J , . . i •/ , (11) and Brown. Fisher, Stock (5), Wilhelm (8) and Lau.

Scheffing came charging out of the Detroit dugout to join the discussion and in no time, the umpires had to pull the two managers apart. "They were accusing him (Sunning) of cheating," Scheffing saic later. "I don't think the opposing 'manager has any business being out there with my pitcher, arguing with him or picking a fight, "I told Hitchcock to get the hell out of there. But I never touched him and he never touchec me." Schwarts said: "We can't do anything unless we catch the man in the act." Bunning Denies Tampering Bunning, who left the game with a blistered finger in the 10th, insisted "I don't know what it was all about." Hitchcock, still burning after the game, said "I don't blame Bunning for not talking about it. I wouldn't talk about it, either." Baltimore President Lee MacPhail had the last word. He said he was going to send some of the balls Bunning used in the game to Joe Cronin so the American League 'president could see the nicks for himself. At any rate, Al Kaline, Rocky Colavito and Bill Bruton each hit homers and (he victory was credited to reliever Ron Nischwitz. Hoty WilheJm was the loser. In other American League games, the first-place New York Yankees defeated the Kansas City A's, 9-4; the Boston Red Sox downed the Minnesota Twins, 7-5, and the Los Angeles Angels wal loped the Washington Senators, 7. 4. The Cleveland Indians and Chicago White Sox were idile. Over in the National League the San Francisco Giants beat the Philadelphia Phillies, 7-4; the Los Angeles Dodgers sipped the New York Mets, 4-2; the Cincinnati Reds blanked the Houston Colts 5-0; the Pittsburgh Pirates subdued the St. Louis Cardinals,5-2 and the Chicago Cubs climbec out of the cellar with a 4-3 decision over the Milwaukee Braves.
