fwelve Logansport, Indiana Pharos-Tribune Thursday Evening, Junt 7; 10GJ. Mets Drag Casey To Ail-Time Low Ebb Dodgers Within Half Game of San Francisco By FRED DOWN UPI Sports Writer It's official today that the New York Mets have dragged Casey •Stengel to the lowest point of his 50-year career in baseball, The suspicion, that this might happen had been growing on people for some time, but it wasn't .until Wednesday night when the Philadelphia Phillies extended the Mets' losing streak to 17 games with 2-0 and 2-1 victories that it became as plain as 71 - year - old Casey's drooping shoulders. No team that Casey ever managed or played for ever lost 17 in a row before and it doesn't help the old man, either, when he glances over at the American League standings and notes that the New York Yankees .— the club which fired him after the •I960 season — are right up there an first place as usual. May Get Worse Things could become worse'be- fore they get better for Stengel, too, because now the Mets are only six losses short of the modern big league record of 23 .straight suffered by the 1961 Phillies. The 17 straight defeats are also the most ever suffered by any 'New York big league team. • Cal McLish pitched a seven-hitter to blank the Mets in the first game of Wednesday's twi-nighter and then Art Mahaffey turned in a four-hitter to complete the sweep. Tony Taylor figured in •both Philadelphia runs in the opener 'and Wes Covington singled in the ninth inning to drive in the decisive run of the nightcap. 1 Meanwhile, back at Casey's old ;stand in The Bronx, the Yankees -regained the AL lead with a 5-0 '.triumph over the Cleveland Indi- ;ans. Ralph' Terry's four-hit pitching and back-to-back sixth-inning homers by Boger Maris and Johnny Blanchard paved the way for the Yankee victory which tagged Jim Grant .with his first defeat of the season. Dodgers Move Up ~ The Los Angeles Dodgers Tnoved to within a half-game of first place in the National League when they completed their suspended game of Tuesday night with an 8-3 win and then downed the Pittsburgh Pirates, 5-3, in a regularly scheduled night game. The Chicago Cubs defeated the San Francisco Giants, 4-3, the St. Louis Cardinals downed the C i n- cinnati Reds, 4-3, and the Milwaukee Braves beat the Houston Colts, 6-3, in other games. In other AL gssjes, the Detroit Tigers beat the Boston Red Sox, 3-2, after a 2-1 loss, the Washington Senators edged out the Baltimore Orioles, 2-1, the Los Angeles Angels shaded the Chicago White Sox, 1-0, and the Minnesota .Twins topped the Kansas City Athletics, 7-0.
