Cards Defeat Colts; A's Lose A Pair By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Hob Gibson and Warren Spahn had one thing in common Friday night—tightening the National League race. Gibson easily pitched St. Louis to a 4-t triumph over the Houston Colts in Houstin and Milwaukee's Spahn outclassed the Los Angeles Dodgers, 0-1. The combination cut the- Dodgers' first-place lead over tho rtmnertip St. Louis to 5'i. Kansas City never got off the ground against Detroit as the A's dropped a dnubleheader. The Tigers crucified them, 17-2 in the opener and then took the nightcap, G-2 in Detroit. Fo r Gibson, his 14th victory against seven losses was almost routine. He has beaten the Colts four times this season He gave up only five hits and walked one- in a classy and rpeedy performance. The game took only one hour and 3fi minutes. The Cardinals scored four runs in the first and then settled back while Gibson fired away. Curt F'ood led off the first with a walk and Bill White bunted safely, the first of his four hits. The pair then pulled a double steal, and when catcher John Batoman's throw went into ccn- terficld, Flood scored. Ken Boyer walked and George Altman doubled homo two runs and then scored on Julian Javier's single. The A's fell behind quickly in the first contest and spent the rest of the evening trying to catch tip. But things got worse instead of belter. Two homers by Norm Cash and one by Don Wert among 15 hits collected by the Tigers in the first game against Pete Lovrich and two relievers. Kansas City oiil-homered Detroit in the second game, but the Wows by Doc Edwards and Ed Charles came with none on after Detroit had built up a 4-0 lead. Dick McAuliffe homered for the Tigei-K. Dave Wickersham took the toss. Frank Lary and Phil Regan each wont nine inning s for the two Tiger victories. Moe Drubowsky (59) will try to bring peace back to the mound today when the A's t:ike on the Tigers and Mickey Lolich (4-G). Ron Taylor (7-5) will make one of his rare starting appearances for the Cardinals who will face- Skinny Brown (4-9) and the Colts tonight. Wichita Transit Still Unbeaten WICHITA, Kan.

Kunz oulhit Piercevill c 10-11 in Kansas City Chiefs Top Denver, 30-16 By DON WEISS Associated Press Sports Writer Looks like the same situation for the Kansas City Chiefs as thc'y had when they were the Dallas Tcxans: Lots of talent, not enough fans. Only 6,865 turned up Friday night at their new rent-free diggings in Kansas City to see the defending American Football League champions rip the Denver Broncos 30-16 behind the eye-popping play Yanks Ruin Lopez' Plans NEW YORK (AP)—The trouble with those Yankees, you can't trust 'em. Al Lopez, the ever-optimistic manager of the Chicago White Sox had it all neatly planned. His team was going to boat Ralph Honk's league leaders foul- straight right here at Yankee Stadium. The sweep would trim the Yankees' first place margin over the Sox from 10 to six games. "Wuoldn't that mak 0 Houk's stomach churn, though," chortled Lopez. "Now wouldn't it?" It all sounded fine except for one thing. You can't trust the Yankees. They nipped Al's well-intend cd plans in the bud in their very first encounter, beating the White Sox Friday night, 7-2 and now lead Chicago by 11 games. Things went all right for Lopez and the Sox for four innings. Chicago scored a run in the third against Jim Bouton and Hoyt \Vil- hnlm with his baffling knuckleball held the Yankees hitlcss. But hit s by Joe Popitone, Elston Howard, Hector Lopez and Phil Linz gave the Yankees' two runs in the fifth and, after the White Sox had tied the score in the sixth, the Yankees came back with a run in their half of the inning on a double by Bobby Richardson and a single by Pcpitone to regain the lead 3-2. With Jim Brosnan on the mound in the seventh, the Yankees tallied four times to put the gam ( > beyond reach. Californian Betters 200-Merer Swim Mark OSAKA, Japan (AP) — Don Sehollander, the swimming wonder boy from California's Santa Clara Swim Club, bettered the world record for the SOT-meler freestyle for the second time in a week in Japan l ! .S. swimming meet Saturday.

In two home exhibition appearances, the Chiefs have drawn slightly more than 12,500—approximating the number of ticket requests the Green Bay Packers, the "other" champs, had to refuse for tonight's sell-out game with the Chicago Bears at Milwaukee. Last week it was Eddie Wilson, the second-year quarterback from Arizona, with a 23 for 32 passing show in a 35-21 victory over Oakland. This time it was two lightning-fast rookies, former Olympic sprinter Stono Johnson of Grambling and Charlie Warner of Prairie View College in Texas. With the Broncs leading 7-0 in the first quarter, Warner grabbed the Denver kickoff four yards deep in his end zone and flashed all the way for the matching touchdown. Then, after Gene Mingo's fiekl goal had shoved Denver in front again, Wilson clicked with Johnson on a 32-yard pass play for the go-ahead Kansas City touchdown. By the time the Broncos scored again, there wa s one second left in the game and Kansas City had a 30-10 lead. Action—and attendance—picks up tonight. The National Football League, heading for a pro-season record with 507,697 already logged for 13 playing dates, has five games headed by the Bears-Packers showdown before 46,001 at Milwaukee's County Stadium. In others, Dallas plays Los- Angeles at Portland, Ore., Detroit meets St. Loui s at Omaha. Philadelphia plays Washington at Charlotte, and Baltimore takes on Pittsburgh at Atlanta.
