Logansport, Indiana Pharos-Tribune Fifteen Roberts Adds Big Link To Comeback Gentile Helps With 2 Homers to Sink Sox By FRED DOWN DPI Sporis Writer A courtesy telephone call to "has been" Robin Roberts is'pay- ing off for Hie Baltimore Orioles in the major league comeback of the year. The 35-year-old Roberts, handed his unconditional release by the New York Yankees on May 11, left his number with Orioles' General Manager Lee MacPhail, who confesses: "The name Was Robin Roberts ... I didn't know how much he could have left .in his arm But I returned the call out of courtesy to his .record and his reputation." It appears today it was one of the best decisions MaaPhai-l ever made. Roberts, who had a 1-10 record with the Philadelphia Phillies last season and showed a composite 55-79 record over his last five seasons in the National League, in a five-Miter Wednesday night to pitch the Orioles to a 3-1 victory over the Chicago White Sox. Fourth Straight Win It was Roberts' fourth straight win for the Orioles after losing his first two decisions, raised his mark to 4-2 for the season and, in the process, reduced his earned run average to 2.50. In '54 innings, the one-time gopher ball champ of the National League, who's become a slow curveball pitcher, has yielded only two homers to American League hitters. •Tim Gentile gave Roberts t h e runs he needed when he connected for his 18th and 19th homers of the season to drive in all the Orioles' runs. The White Sox scored their run off Roberts on a single by Nelson Fox, a walk and Joe Cunningham's single. The New York Yankees beat the Minnesota Twins, 7-3, the Detroit Tigers shut out the Cleveland Indians, 4-0, the Kansas City Athletics defeated the Washington Senators, 4-1, and the Los Angelas Angels whipped the Boston Red Sox, 3-0, in other American League games. In the National League, the first-place San Francisco Giants downed the Cincinnati Reds,. 6-3, the Los Angeles Dodgers topped the Milwaukee Braves, 6-2, the Pittsburgh Pirates shaded t h e New York Mets, 6-5, in 10 innings and the St. Louis Cardinals swept the Chicago Cubs, 4-0 and 8-0.

THORNBERRY UPI Sports Writer WIMBLEDON, Eng. (UPI)— Billie Jean Motfitt and Carole Caldwell, a pair of inseparable California teen-agers, will be peering at each other from opposite ends of the court today' in the third round of the Wimbledon tennis championships. Miss Moffitt, an 18-year-old college student from Long Beach, Calif,, produced the most startling upset in the history of women's singles at Wimbledon when she eliminated top-seeded Margaret Smith of Australia in a second round match Tuesday, Following that victory over Miss Smith, Billie Jean admitled it was Miss Caldwell, a 19-year- old native of Sanla Monica, Calif., who had provided her with the right strategy to beat the Aussie champion. Four-of the five other U.S. survivors in the, women's singles also will see action today. Darlene Hard of Long Beach, Calif., ment who became the tburna- favorile following Miss Smith's elimination, meets Eva De Jong of Holland. Justina Bricka of St. Louis, Mo., plays Renee Schurmann of South Africa, Nancy Richey of San Antonio, Tex., faces Deirdre Catt of Britain, and Karen Hantze Susman of San Antonio meets Elizabeth Slarkie of Britain. Vicky Palmer of Phoenix, Ariz., was not scheduled to play singles today but she and Miss Richey had a doubles date with Donna Floyd of Arlington, Va., and Judy Tegar-t of Australia. Uncle Sam's chances for a singles title now rest upon the likes of Miss Moffitt and Miss Hard following the ' elimination of Chuck McKinley of St. Ann, Mo., Wednesday in the men's • singles. Hampered by a pulled muscle in his right forearm, McKinley, who reached the final of last year's tournament, bowed to England's Mike Hann, 6-3, 6-3, 6-2. Three' other Yanks followed McKinley to the sidelines, leaving Dennis Ralston of Bakersfield, Calif., Whiteney Reed of Alameda, Calif., and Frank Froehling of Coral Gables, Fla., as ths only U.S. representatives in the men's singles. Reed faced almost certain de- 'eat in today's third round, for ie was pitted against defending champion Rod Laver of Auslral- a. His surviving teammates also drew Aussie opponents — Ralstor meeting Marty Mulligan and Froehling playing Owen David- Baseball Standings By United Press International American League Cleveland Minnesota New York Los Angeles Baltimore Detroit Chicago Kansas City Boston Washington W.

Palmer nd Jack Nicklaus aren't even in their threesome in the Vestern Open Thursday and Fri- ay. ' . •• . The two top pros' on the circuit re paired with John Barnum, ro at the BlythefiekJ Country }lub in .Grand 'Rapids, Mich., cene of . last year's Western 3pen, won by Palmer. » * * Big John was the George Bayer I 15 years ago and will have no rouble staying with the long- itting Nicklaus and Palmer off be tecs. Back when there used o be many driving contests dur- ng the pro circuit, John Barnum was always the man to beat, '* . * * But why the personal view- joint? Well it was a dozen or so 'ears'ago and the Michigan Open vas.being held at the Lenawee iountry Club in Adrian, Mich. Cad-aies had already been assigned to the player on the Sat' urday before the tournament. Big John arrived at the club a day or two, Sunday, before the rest of the field'got thet'e. He hadn't made the '. cut in one'of the big meets somewhere else in the mid- west. Barnum picked up his caddy and-went off to the practice tees n preparation for the Michigan Open and to get his game back n shape." » * '* Being one of the better known golfers in the stale he naturally drew quite a gathering on the H'actice tee. Among those watch' 'ng were several caddies. He had several questions on the course as to what the length was 'rom here to there, etc. One cad tly kepi, answering most of the questions. Barnum's caddy was far down the fairway picking up Ihe shots and wasn't available .0 answer same. After .a while Barnum askcc [he one answering his requests who he. had drawn to carry for n the tournament. He was told Barnum stopped practicing anc went I to'the pro shop to ask hcac pro Piike Snider if he could switch :addies. Snider gave the OK and Jarmim and his new caddy wenl out alone and covered just aboul every inch of the golf course. *• * » Barnum played well enough to win most tournaments, but a four- jul.t green on the 185-yard Iflth lole on the third round droppec lim out of the top spot. On that 16th hole Barnum, who has t .emper as big as his frame, 6-5, 230 pounds, came off the green and tossed his putter as hard as could into a pond in front of :he 17lh tee. When his caddy took off his shoes .and started for the iubmergedi club Barnum shoutec from the lee, "If you go in aflei [hat damn- thing, I'll throw you in next." It was the only shouting or scolding the caddy got in the 72 ides. Barnum conferred wilh the boy on every shot he took, of the tee or on the green. They go along great. When the tourney was over Bar num was behind Walter Burkem who had picked up the first tour nament win of. his career. Ant as golf fans know, Burkemo has since .become one of the top pros on the circuit and dominated the PGA tournament in the mid 50. with hi's match play. » * * The caddy learned a lot from Barnum. A lot about golf am a lot about many other things One guess who that caddy was. Here's hoping that Nicklaus am Palmer aren't even tops in their threesome.
