Mets Don't Want Him; Angels Might Take Him BOSTON (At 1 )—Outfielder Jimmy Picrsall, released by the nose- diving Now York Mets, was expected to sign with the Los Angeles Angels of the. American League as a free agent today. A source close to the Angels said no trouble was anticipated witli Piersall over contract terms. The Associated Preen learned Friday night that the colorful 33- year-old fly chaser was going to the Angels. But because of the fact the waivers didn't Vun out on Jim until noon today neither Piersall nor Los Angeles Manager Bill Higney was free to an- nouni'p the move. Most noted this season for running out his lone homer backwards, Piersatl hit .1!M for the Mets and drove in out 1 - two runs in more than 40 games. Th c loss gave the Mets undisputed possession of the modern major league record. They had been tied with the 1916 Philadelphia Athletics at 19 road losses each. The New York Yankees maintained their eight-game lead in the American League with a 6-5 victory of the Minnesota Twins. Baltimore snapped it s second- place tie with Chicago by beating the White Sox 6-0. Boston edged Los Angeles G-5, Washington conquered Detroit 3-1 and Cleveland ended Kansas City's five-game winning streak 3-2. Ken Boyer paced the Cards' nine-hit attack against former Cardinals Paul Toth and Dick LcMay with a home run and single, driving in two runs. The homer was his 13th of the campaign. Gibson has beaten every team in the league at least once. The only other pitchers to make the cycle are they Cubs' Dick Ellsworth and the Giants' Marichal. Tony Taylor drove in five runs in the Phillies' narrow triumph over th c Dodgers. Lefty Chris Short allowed the Dodgers only five hits through seven innings but needed helfl from Jack Baldschun in the eighth. It was Short's third victory in 11 decisjons.

The Mets' 20th road defeat was a. 7-3 clobpering by Bob Aspromonte and the rest of the Houston Colts. "It's a bad record, isn't it," the 73-year-old Stengel bellowed. "Then why should I talk about it?" But, the Mets' manager quickly added: "What am I supposed to,do, fire all my men? Show me where I can got other players for $25,000 or $50,000 and I'll buy them. But you can't get those fellows. "I have only nine pitchers and they're overworked. Whenever possible, I have to let them pitch Page 12 Garden City Saturday, July 27, 1963 a full game and that only tires them more. Right now two of them are hurt, so we're operating with seven.
