14 8** »iut Friday. June 6. 1969 --Meet Cards Again Tonight- Astros 6 Wynn' Behind Joe, Jim By FRED HARTMAN HOUSTON (Sp) — If you want to be poetic about it you could say: Morgan and Wynn Are scoring again. And that means nothing but victory for the Houston Astros. The best they can do is hope (or a repetition of their heavy hitting and scoring in game No. 2 of the St. Louis Cardinal series at 7:30 p.m. Friday. Don Wilson opposes Nelson Briles. Both Joe Morgan and Jim Wynn scored four runs apiece Friday night to make it easy for Houston to defeat the 1968 National League champions, 11 to G. Little Joe had one of the biggest games of his career, getting a home run, a walk and three singles for a perfect night at the plate. The only other Astro to have a perfect night was Danny Coombs who was brought on in the fourth to dispose of one man, Lou Brock. Danny forced Brock to ground out, and Coombs'" day's work was over. Both teams used five pitchers with Dooley Womack finally gelling the win for the Astros and Jack Billingharn, who had lo bail out Fred Gladding in the ninth, getting the save. The Astros didn't put the game away until the eighth when they blasted both Joe Hoerner and Ron Willis for four hits and four runs. John Edwards' timely double, after singles by Morgan, Jets' Namalh Ends Career In Pro Bail NEW YORK (AP) — Joe Na- math, the New Yrok Jets' Super Bowl hero, said today he is retiring reluctantly from football. He indicated the move came because of pressure from Pete Kozelle, commissioner of the National Football League, to dispose of his restaurant interest. The former University of Alabama quarterback from Beaver Falls, Pa., who signed a J400,000 contract lo turn pro in 1965, was in and out of hot water during his turbulent career. Wynn and Denis Menke, was the ig hit of the inning. St. Louis rallied for a run in the ninth, but the 20,471 cash customers, plus enough kids to make the total crowd 24.M1, sat through the three hour a«d five minute struggle and were not to x denied. The teams bounced back and 'orth into the lead like two evenly-matched basketball .earns through the first five nn'mgs. The Astros started out as if they meant business in the first nning with Norm Miller's double driving in Joe Morgan and Jim Wynn. The Cardinals picked up a run n the third on a two-out double by Lou Brock and Curt Flood's single that Doug Kader should lave handled. In the fourth the Cardinals looked the part of champions on Joe Torre's triple, a home run by Mike Shannon and a hit and run single by Dal Maxvill that scored Jilian Javier from first. The rally sent St. Louis out in front by lo 2 and sent Jim Ray to the showers. Dooley Womack pitched well for Houston in relief of Coombs, and the Astros came back in the fifth to ahead, 5 to 4. Womack exited in the seventh. Morgan opened with a single and after walks to Wynn and Miller, Morgan scored for a second time on Denis Menke's fly and Jesus Alou grounded a single through the Wield to score Wynn and Miller. Morgan lined a home run into the right field to add to the lead in the sixth.

The magic returned to Menke's bat, and his line single scored Wynn for the third time. Womack weakened in the seventh and walked Maxvill and tossed a ball to pinch hitter Vic DavalUlo, late of the American League, before Skip Guinn came on. He finished walking Oavalilio and struck out Brock before being relieved in favor of Fred Gladding. The Flinlrock from FLatrock greeted Flood with a fooler that caused Curt to force Davalillo on what should have been a double play. Vada Ptnson's weak Lap to Blsfary turned off the lights for the Cardinals. Little League Roundup-Orioles Nip Chargers, 4-3 The Orioles managed single uns in four frames in the West ,eague Thursday night to ivercome the Chargers, 4-3. The Orioles got their tallies in the first, second, third and fifth rames to take the win, while the Chargers could get only a pair of runs in the first inning and a ingle score in the fourth frame. Mike Davis took the win for the Orioles, striking out five and walking four as he allowed two hits. Mike Sobotik was credited with the loss for the Chargers as ic walked two and struck out beven while giving-up five hits. Mickey Masterson had a hot night at the plate for the Chargers, hitting safely three times in four chances. In the second game it was the Pirates outscoring the Raiders, 7-6. The Pirates got a run in the first frame, two in the second, and rallied for four in the third to get the victory. The Raiders got a pair in the second, one in the fourth and a three-run fifth burst fell short. Bert Warren was the winning Pirate hurler as he struck out three and allowed three hits, while Scott Guy took the loss in striking out nine and giving-up five hits. Mike Newton had a perfect two for two night at the plate to pace all hitters. In the Central League the Phillies downed the Sports, 7-2, and the Lions whipped the Braves, 6-3. The Phillies rode the arm of pitcher Keith Bigler for the win as Bigler struck out eight and allowed only three hits in six innings as he walked none. Zester Bowers took the loss for the Sports, and Danny Russell was the leading hitter with a perfect three for three ma_rk. The Giants slipped past the Cubs, 3-0, in the first game Thursday night in Junior Teen action at the Robert E. Lee field. The Giants used a single run in the third frame and two runs in the sixth inning to ice the Giants. Randy Riley was the winning Giant hurler. Riley worked the ntire game, walking two and striking out five as he gave-up five hits. The loser was Kevin Ellis, but the performance by Ellis was a fine one. He slruck out 11 Giants in the six innings he worked and allowed only four hits while walking two. Ellis and Jack Hall were the game's leading hitters with two hits apiece in three trips to the plate. In the second game the Pirates took just four innings to dispose of the Braves, 10-0. This one ended with the 10-run rule. It was eight walks and a load of throwing errors that lead to the Brave downfall as the Pirates consistently capitalized on numerous Brave miscues to run- up the score. David Bradford hurled a fine one-hitter in the four frames to chalk-up the win for the pirates. Bradford struck out seven men and walked not a single Brave in collecting the victory. David Lemley absorbed the loss for the Braves as he struck out three, walked eight and allowed five hits in the three innings he worked. Dwight Hooks came on in relief in the fourth frame. Earnest Holloway was the nights leading hitter with one hit in one trip to the plate, and Holloway also scored three runs for the Pirates. itmiiiiHiimiiiimuiiiiiiiiiitimiuiiuiuuiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiNiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiia League Standings | By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS National League East Division W.

MAIN—I 2749 MARKET MAIN Two of the tougher shots in golf from a psychological standpoint are the long irons into the teeth of a wind and the common, everyday sand shot. For me, the sand shot is tougher. Frankly, I'm not a very good sand player. We all have our weaknesses in our games and mine is in the sand. I doubt that I'm alone. I'm going through a mental rearrangement now. A year or so ago, I felt like 1 had to get the ball close to the pin from a bunker be- I cause everyone else was doing it. As a result, I pressed —I got tense and I tried to execute a shot I could not execute. The results were disastrous. So I had to go back and reassess the over-all picture. We're all human. We can do some things well and other things only fairly well. If I was having trouble with my bunker shots, Joe Blow was having trouble with his putter. H evens out. Since I realized this, I have tried not to expect good results from sand shots. Right now, I'm just working on trying to get the ball out and in the general vicinity of a good shot—which I consider within five feet of the cup. Now I'm working on 10 feet and under and I'm I much more relaxed because WHY b David Hemmings and Samantha Eggars behind the Foster Grants?
