Sports Roundup b Ualbol Roberts Is Simply the Most NEW YORK (AP) — It's going to be a tough year for Johnny Anlonclli of the Giants if his manager persists in matching (lie brilliant young southpaw against Robin Roberts of the Phils, Johnny possibly is the host lefthander in the National League, as his admirers claim, but Roberts just happens to be the most pitcher in the game today. Watching the Phillies firebailer outduel Antonelll for the second time in the young season and finally wear him out in the llth inning, one got to wondering how many games he would win season after wesson if he had a hitting club behind him instead of an outfit which was seventh in runs-batted-in Inst year, barely bunting out the futile Pittsburgh pirates. Wore he pitching for, say, the St. Louis Cardinals, who drove 7-1B runs across the dish as compared to the Phils' 620, u .seems reasonable to surmise that the former Michigan State hero would rack up 30 victories or better every year. The past four seasons, working for a club which finished filth once and fourth on two occasions, the righthander has won 21, '28, 23, 23, in that order. 29 Complete Games By comparison with Antonelli, the World Series hero and leading pitcher in the National League on a percentage basis with n 21-7 mart, Roberts worked 337 innings to Ills rival's 259 last season. The Phillies started 38 times and pitched 29 complete games. An- tonplli started 37 and was in there at UK> finish in only 18 of them. Watching him pitch UiLs spring, our Impression had been that the Phil ace was making more use of a change-up pitch to' throw batters off balance Minn in other years, ii nd he confirmed this after his .second victory over the GliuiUs. The slow one, coming on (op of a blam- ing fast ball, made (ho straining Willie Mays look pretty silly on a couple* of occasions. ft was an especial pleasure lo watch Roberts work on Dusty Rhodes when the renowned pinch- hitter came up ot a tense juncture with a mate on. Though first bnsc was empty. Roberts scorned to pass the great man, but curved him off his hands until Rhodes swung at a bad one in desperation nnd popped out.
