Dodgers Trim Braves Lead With 5-4 Win In 14-lnning Contest SPORTS PARADE Scottdale Banquet Tomorrow 4- By FRED DOWN United Press Sports Writer Gmo Cimoli, the "ugly duckling" of the N a t i o n a l League champion Brooklyn Dodgers, is the latest example that sometimes the best trades in baseball are the ones that never are made. A mere .111 hitter in 36 at-bats last season, Cimoli was the Dodgers' No. 1 trade bait all winter. ,,,,,,,.,,,,,, They eventually kept him only be- R "oklvn ransp nnhnrtv plco luac intoi-octQ^ _. . ' Major League Standings National League W. L. Pet. cause nobody else was interested. Today, the 28-year-old native of San Francisco is batting .316, has driven in 10 runs, leads the' team with 25 hits and is the hero of the Dodgers' 5-4 four-hour, 14 - inning ·victory over tile Braves Monday night. Cimoli broke it up with his fifth hit of the night, a solo homer off Red Murff to lead off the 14th frame and give Sandy Koufax his first win. The Chicago Cubs whipped the New York Giants, 6-2, in the only other National League game Mondry while the Baltimore Orioles defeated the Detroit Tigers, 8-6, in 13 innings and the Kansas City Athlttics walloped the Washington Senators, 8-2, in American League gomes. At Ebbets Field umpire Lee Bal- k.r.fanl called managers Walt Alston and Fred Haney to the rpound to warn of a "bean ball" duel after starting pitchers Lew Burdette and Don Drysdale both were guilty of "dusters" in the first frame. Ed Mathews homered in the first inning but Carl Furillo blasted a three-run homer in the bottom of the inning after singles by Cimoli and Sandy Amoros. Cimoli filled in in center field for the injured · Duke Snider with Amoros taking over in left field. Mathews walloped another homer in the sixth inning and Joe Adcock blasted his sixth of the season in the eighth to produce a 3-3 tie. The Braves went ahead in the 12th on singles by Mathews and Andy Pafko followed by Johnny Logan's sacrifice fly but Cimoli doubled and scored^ the tying run on Furillo's single in the tret-' torn of the inning. Then came Gino's second homer --his first also broke, up an extra Inning game against Robin Roberts, April 16. The victory left the Dodgers only one game behind the front-running Braves. Kaiser Beats Giants Don Kaiser. 22-year-old speed- bailer, pitched a six-hitter to- gain his first victory for the Cubs and help hand Ruben Gomez his first loss after three straight wins for the Giants. Ed Winceniak's two- run single was the key blow of the Cubs' four - run sixth - inning rally that broke open the game. Jim Brideweser's first hit of the season, a double, drove in two runs in the 13th'to give the Orioles their victory over the Tigers. The blow followed a double by Gus Triandos and an intentional walk' to Dick Williams, providing relief pitcher G e o r g e Zuyerink with his second win. Bob Nieman homered for the Orioles. Rookie Jim Pisoni's grand slam homer climaxed a six-run _first inning rally and Ned Carver protected it for Kansas City the rest of the way with a neat six-hitter. Gus JZernial had sent the Athletics in front with a two-run single as the Athletics dealt Chuck Stobbs, a 15-game winner last season, his fifth straight loss.

It's part of the baseball history books how Konstanty, after nine mediocre years, suddenly caught fire for the Phillies in 1950 and led the Whiz Kids to the pennant.

But the United States Golf Assn.' took a different view. Stuart Heatley, member of the USGA's executive board, said the rule is clear | regarding expenses paid ama-, teurs. j The ruckus started when Low-! ery, charged with evading state' income taxes, told a grand j u r y j that "F paid all the expenses" when he took Ward to Ontario, Canada and Detroit to play in amateur events. ! Grand jury testimony also d i s - j closed an Sir.OOO loan by Lowery to the golf champion. "I didn't do anything illegal," said Lowery, himself a former board member of the USGA. "I paid Harvie's expenses, but that was a reward for the fine work he did for me in the auto business." "Sure I borrowed the $11,000, but it was only a loan," snapped Ward. "Furthermore, part of it has been paid back and I'm still paying on it." Red - faced, and near tears, Ward denied that he ever had received expense money from the wealthy auto dealer, then in the same breath, admitted that he played in the Walker Cup matches "as Lowery's guest."

Actually, he claimed he didn'l have a chance to use the basket catch on that one because the ball was too low. "So my perfect record still good. No?" he asked whimsically. Possessed of great speed afoot, a keen batting eye and one of the best throwing arms in the majors, Clemente recently was paid high tribute by his manager, Bobby Bragan. Said the Buc pilot: "He's worth every penny of a half-million dollars to me. That's what the other clubs would have to give in cash or equivalent player material to get him." However, it was evident from the tone of the boss man's voice that he has no intention of letting Clemente get away. After all, in Bragan's mind Roberto has improved to the tune of $496,000 since the Pirates "stole" Sugar Hari Gets Unanimous Verdict Over Al Wilson NEW YORK (UP)--young Garnet (Sugar) Hart, surfeited with victories over unranked welterweights, yelled a fight - offer of "winner take all" to four of the top 10 today. The 21-year-old Philadelphia!! was somewhat miffed because he had to be content with a 9-1, 9-1, 9-1 decision over Al (Sugar) Wilson in their TV bout at St. Nicholas Arena Monday night, and he said, "he's the last unranked opponent I'll meet." Hart and manager Marty Stein hurled the winner - take - all challenge at the three top contenders; Tony De Marco, Caspar Ortega and Isaac Logart and at ninth- ranking Walter Byars, who won an upset decision over Hart at Madison Square Garden, March 8. Hart, favored at 5-1, handed a thorough trouncing to lanky, 31- year-old Wilson of Englewood, N.J.; but he couldn't flatten him. "He fought like a turtle," declared the irate Sugar, "all arms and elbows for protection. And he was just in there to last the distance."
