The Two-way Kerfs Pitcher BRADENTON, Fla. -- Jorge Jesus Rubio has pitched two major league victories in his life. Cy Young couldn't.

South Of Border Rubio is a full - grown Mexican, 6 - feet - 1,200 pounds, with a glint of gold in his smile. He says he can throw the same pitches -- fast ball, curve, and slider -- with either hand. The fast ball he throws with the right hand is a scorcher. As a Mexicali schoolboy he employed it for two no - hitters on behalf of Escuela Autoctona Justa Sierra de Baja California and a scout for the California Angels plucked this Mexicali Rose. That was four years ago. Late in 1966 the Angels brought him up in time to appear in seven games. One was a nine - inning shutout against Cleveland in which he struck out 15 Indians. A gleeful Bill Rigney took him to training camp last spring expecting him to move into California's starting rotation, but a pulled muscle limited him to three starts and 15 innings of work with the Angels. "Not the arm," he said, xe- ferring to the injury. "Here." He caressed his left thigh. "I went down to Seattle and it was cold. Tacoma, it was cold. Then El Paso and it was warm and the muscle was all better." Rubio would be with the Angels in Palm S p r i n g s . Calif., now, except that last November Fred Haney got a chance to deal with Cincinnati for Sammy Ellis. Fred swapped Jorge and the tireless relief pitcher, Bill Kelso. * The Musclemen '·So you got two for one," a - visitor" said to Dave Bristol, "and that's all right because you can use pitchers." "Yes," Bristol said, "but if we can get regular work out of Jim Maloney, Milt Pappas. Gary Nolan and Mel Queen, we'll have some pitching." The manager is moderately high on his team. In a January deal the Reds sent their catcher. John Edwards, to St. Louis, but Bristol fears no evil behind the plate with Don Pavletich and John Bench in residence. At the age of 20. Johnny Lee Bench possesses a distinction undreamed of in Doubleday's philosophy. When he was only 18 and playing his first full season as a professional, the Reds advanced him from Peninsula in the Carolina League to Buffalo -and the Peninsula club retired his uniform number. Old ]\ o. The game was about to start, and across the field Joe D i M a g g i o , executive vice president of the Oakland Athletics, was s i g n i n g autographs. The executive vice president was in one of those adorable uniforms of Finley green and Fort Knox gold. "This is how executives dress?" a guy said. "They gave me this," Joe said, touching the No. 5 on the bosom. No Yankee has worn No. 5 since Joe retired, and none ever will. "I don't know who had it before on this club," Joe said. re- some throttled the Pistons, especially after Detroit closed to within three points with 2:43 remaining in the game. As the B o s t o n player coach, Russell directed traffic in a sensational second - period outburst of 46 points that tied the Celtics own record for a quarter set against St. Louis eight years ago. Russell scored nine of his 17 points during this spurt. John Havlicek add 11 of his team - high 25 in this period and Larry Siegfried of Shelby, Ohio netted eight of his 21 points. Hey, Rick, who wore this number last year?" Rick Monday, the wunderkind from A r i z o n a State, frowned in thought. "Alvin," he said at last, meaning Alvin Dark, who opened last season as manager of the Athletics. "A good man, Joe," a visitor said. "After all, it could have been Lew Krausse."
