' Indians Sweep Two From Yanks; Cubs Win Twice' Open Champion Hopes To Rest After Upset By LEO H. PETERSEN UPI Sports Editor OAKMONT, Pa. (UPD-Jack Mcklaus, a surprise winner over Arnold Palmer in a tense playoff for the U.S. Open golf championship today set his sights on the British Open. First, though, he is going to go fishing for a week. "I'm tired, awfully tired," said the 22-year-old, blond belter from Ohio after he beat the favored Palmer by three strokes over the rugged acres of the Oakmont Country Club Course Sunday. 'Til play in the Western Open after that week's rest and then go to Britain for their Open. Just what I'll do after that, I don't know, but I do know that I'm going back to Ohio State next fall," added Nicklaus, who has two quarters to go for his business administration degree. If he doesn't return to the tournament trail for a long time it will be all right with his fellow golfers for they have a strong feeling that 'Nicklaus • is' going to become the new scourge of the fairways. Has Promising Future He is only 22 and probably will be a good bet to win the U.S. Open for years to come. The way he closed out Palmer on a hot, sunny day before a gallery in excess of 10,000 showed he has the (alents to dominate the game just as did such immortals as Bobby Jones, Walter Hagen, Gene Sarazen, Byron Nelson, Ben Hogan, Sam Snead—and in recent years—Palmer. He 'beat Palmer by three shots when Arnie's putter, which had stuttered throughout the tournament, failed him again. "I just wasn't putting, that's all there was to it," Palmer said after he lost out in his bid for a new golfing grand slam. He had won the Masters in April, and was gunning to add the U.S. and British Opens and PGA titles to that one. But it wasn't in the cards—for this year at least. "I'll keep trying, though, so long as I play the game," Palmer promised. Started Patented Finish For a time Sunday, it looked like the golden boy from Pennsylvania was going to put on one of his patented finishes. Trailing from the start, he was four strokes behind at one time. But with birdies on the ninth, llth and 12th holes, he closed the gap to one stroke. Then he bogeyed the 13th hole and never got back into the running, Nioklaus shot an even par 71, with nines of 35 and 36, while Palmer had nines of 38 and 38 for a 74. Oakmont's par for the 6,984- yard course is 36-35-71. Palmer, with a trio of three- putt greens, had a total of 36 putts in the playoff round. In all, he had 11 three-putt greens during the tournament and for the five rounds had a total of 174 putts. Nicklaus, on thi other hand, put- led brilliantly. "I missed only one putt within five feet," he said. He had no three-putt greens in the playoff round. Outdrove Palmer Nicklaus, whom Palmer affectionately calls "the big dude," outdrove the long hitting Palmer on 10 of the 14 long holes in the playoff. He also was driving straighter, hitting the rough only .wo times while Palmer caught it ive times, And when you hit the rough at Oakmont, you are in ;rouble. Nicklaus, the youngest golfer lo win the Open since Jones did it at the age of 21 in 1923, went ahead on the very first hole when Palmer missed his approach shot and wound up with a bogey. He went two strokes ahead on !he 544-yard par five fourth when put his wedge third four feet from the cup and sank the putt while Palmer parred the hole. It looked like it was going to be a runaway when Nicklaus birdied the 183-yard par three sixth while Palmer bogeyed. Nicklaus put his six iron tee shot six feet from the cup and ran down the putt. Palmer three-putted from 30 feet. Palmer Birdied Ninth Palmer got one of those strokes back when he sank a three foot putt for a birdie on the long par five ninth. He got another stroke back when he put his seven iron second seven feet from the cup on the par four 372-yard llth and sank the putt. Another birdie on the 598-yard par five 12th left him only one shot back. On this hole he wedged his third shot two feet from the pin and rapped in the putt. Nicklaus went two strokes up again on the par, three 161-yard 18th when Palmer three putted from 40 feel. They matched the card then until the par four 462-yard 18th hole, which they played like amateurs. Palmer had a good drive and then missed the green with his approach. Nicklaus' drive landed in a ball hole. When Palmer missed the green with his approach, Nicklaus asked for a ruling and was told he had to play the ball as was. So he decided to play it safely and chipped out onto the fairway. Conceded Putt Nicklaus put his third on, 16 •feet from the cup. Palmer chipped his third within 12 feet. Nicklaus' first putt went three feet past the hole. Palmer was about three feet away with his first putt, too, and then when he missed it, he tappec the 'ball disgustedly and missed it for a double bogey six. Then he picked up Nicklaus ball, conceding the putt. But officials ruled Nicklaus had to putt out so the green was cleared and the young Ohioan calmly sank his putt. "Arnie is still the greatest,' Nicklaus exclaimed. He pointed out that he played with Palmer in the first two rounds and Palmer shot better than he did in each of them. But when the chips were down Sunday—and that's when Palmer usually is at his best—it was the youngster who came through over the nerveless Palmer. The victory was worth $17,500 to Nicklaus—$15,000 as first place money and $2,500 extra for the playoff round. That brought Nicklaus' money winnings for the year to $43,198.95, the best a freshman pro ever has done. And that official amount does not include the $2,500 extra for the playoff round. Nicklaus is now third in money winnings — behind Palmer's $68,331.66 and Gene Littler, who has a total of $55,470.83. But if Nicklaus keeps on going, he'll soon be at the top of the class—and he may stay there for a long time to come. Merchants Drop 11 Inning Affair to Muncie, 7-6 Sometimes it doesn't pay to| show up at the ball park and lately the Logansport Merchants are wondering just what they must do to win a ball game. Sunday the hard-luck locals dropped a 7-6 decision to Muncie at Riverside Park in 11 innings, after holding a 6-2 lead at the end of six frames. Muncie won the game in Ihe eleventh on a double by Waldron and 'a single by Thompson. The loss was the fifth straight in as many starts for Logansport, Manager Jack Steinman's crew jumped off to a 1-0 lead in the first inning on a single by Jim Sweet, a stolen base and a base hit by Jon Cast. Muncie went to the lead in the second inning by picking up two runs on two walks, a sacrifice and a single. In the third frame Logan went jihcad, 6-2, when Bill Cuppy singled, Mike Newton was safe on -a fielders choice, Sweet sacrificed, Mike Henderson singled, Cast was gate on an error and Butch Jones doubled. Then came the seventh frame Tribe Takes Two Game Lead In AL THE WINNER—Jack Nieklaus, winner of the U. S. Open Half tournament and his wife, Barbara, happily pose with the winner's trophy at Oakmont Sunday. The 22-year-old Ohio golfer had a 71 to beat Arnold Palmer, who had a three over par 74. (DPI) THE LOSER-A beaten Arnold Palmer stares at Hie 13lh hole at Oakmont. He took three putts to sink his ball in the playoff with Jack Nicklaus. Nicklaus took n |>ar and pulled two strokes into the lead. (UPI) Longcliff Splits Two With Arth's The softball team at lha Lo- gansporl State Hospital Sunday split a pair of games with Arth's Drugs of West Lafayette. The locals won the first, 5-4, but the visitors came back to capture the nightcap, 14-5. It was a home run in the last of the ninlh inning with two men out and two on base by John Maloy that won the game for Longcliff in the opener. In the second game the Lafayette team jumped to an early lead and never trailed. when Muncie scored four runs without benefit oi a base hit. The runs came on three walks and two errors, one being -a three base error. Thomas was the loser for Logansport in relief of Cuppy.

Baseball Standings By United.Press International National League By FRED DOWN UPI Sports Writer The Cleveland Indians may not have the New York Yankees "on the run" but even Manager Ralph Houk admits "it's a slow retreat," It could turn out to be the understatement of the year because Sunday was perhaps the greatest baseball day in Cleveland since World War, II. It was the day on which the Indians completed a four-game sweep of the Yankees with 6-1 and 6-3 victories, surged two games ahead in the American League, race and proved they're solid pennant contenders, "If we get some consistency in our pitching, we'll be tough all the way," said Manager Mel McGaha. "This team will score runs and it's also a good defensive team." Dick Donovan and Pedro Ramos Mth acquired in trades, treated 0,918 fans at Cleveland—the lar- est major league turnout of the eason—to a day that warmed the earts of millions of "Yankee laters." Donovan, aided by con- ecutive cecond-inning homers by Ferry Kindall, Bubba Phillips and Tim Mahoney, went 6 1-3 innings o raise his record to 10-2, am hen Ramos, helped by Willi- Cirkland's two - run homer; wen 6 2-3 innings for his fourth vie (2-0) and Pagliaroni. legan, Nischwitz (8) and Eoarke.
