Mets Clip Reds— Mahaffey Strikes Out 10 As Phils Defeat Braves By GEORGE C. LANGFORD UPI Sports Writer Art Mahaffey's shoulder still aches, but his pitching may relieve the painful memory of the 1964 season for the Philadelphia Phillies. Mahaffey has been troubled with his right shoulder for the past two seasons. It was doubtful this spring whether the 26- year-old hurler would be of much use in the Phillie's bid to capture the National League pennant which eluded them by a game last year. Manager Gene Mauch brought Mahaffey around slowly this spring, not allowing him to pitch in a single game for the first two weeks of the season. He didn't get his first start until last Sunday. Friday night, however, Mahaffey turned all eyes when he struck out 10 Milwaukee Braves and yielded only five hits en route to his second consecutive victory 5-2.

Mahaffey, who once struck out 17 batters in a nine-inning game, has resigned himself to the fact that he may have to live with some pain in his shoulder for the rest of his career. However, he has looked very strong in his two starts and he seems to have licked his control problems. He walked' only three Braves. Record Slipped The lanky righthander won 19 games for the seventh-place Phillies in 1962 before slipping: to a 7-10 mark in '63 and a 12-9 record in '64.

He can also find big Jack at the top of the heap of the $100,000 New Orleans Open golf tournament going into today's third round'. Nicklaus shed himself of two hangers-on Thursday and fired a three-under-par 69 to take a two-stroke lead at the halfway point. His 36-hole total is a cool 134. 10 strokes under regulation. Tied for the second spot was a foursome of Bill Martindale, Homero Blancas, Tom Carmichael and Ray Floyd. Martin- a'ale had shared the first round lead with Nicklaus and Gene Littler by firing a course record-breaking 65, but had to settle for a one-under-par round of 71 Friday. Littler, meanwhile, turned in a 73 and fell into a tie for fourth place at 138. Bob McAllester, Bruce Devlin, Miller Barber, Jackie Cupit and Dick Lytle held down third place with 137s, along with George Knud'son who captured the second spot in the Colonial Invitation at Fort Worth earlier this week. retired the first 12 batters. The Phils followed with five singles for two more runs and Mahat- fey had all the margin he needed. Johnny Lewis and Charlie Smith homered, to provide Al Jackson and the Mets with their triumph over Cincinnati: Lewis drove in three Met runs with his homer and a single, and Smith hit a double and homer to end a nine-game losing streak against the Reds dating back to last September. The losing pitcher was Joe Nuxhall. Bob Buhl allowed only three hits before being lifted for a pinchhitter in the ninth inning and Ted Abernathy protected his one-run lead in the ninth for the Cubs. Buhl (4-2) holds more life-time wins (30) over the Dodgers than any other active pitcher. Ron Santo provided the winning margin with a sixth-inning home run. John Purdin was the loser. Homer Wins Game Jim Hart hit a lead-off ninth- inning home run off Ken Johnson to provide Gaylord Perry with his second victory in four decisions. Perry allowed only four hits and struck out eight for the Giants. Eddie Kasko singled in the only Houston run in the second inning. The Giants tied it in the sixth on a double by Willie McCovey and infield hit by Willie Mays and a double play grounder hit by Hart. The Cardinals whipped the Pirates for the 13th straight time with a two-run rally in the ninth inning. Ken Boyer walked, Dick Groat tripled and Bill White singled against loser Al McBean, Donn Clendenon stroked a two-run homer off Cards' starter Ray Sadecki, a 20-game winner last season, who was blasted from the mound for the sixth straight time this season without a win.

On- that night Sonny Liston tries to win back the crown from Cassius Clay. If Clay retains it, Patterson has a good chance at a title shot.

D-ly News, Saturday, May 15,1965 Dies After Surgery— Rookie Pitcher Is Victim of Cancer INGLEWOOD, Calif. (UPI)— The major league career of rookie pitcher Dick Wantz lasted for only one inning so far as his official statistics were concerned, and then cancer brought it to a close. The promising 25-year-old relief hurler died Thursday night after undergoing surgery for a cancerous, brain tumor. •His Los Angeles Angels teammates were in Minnesota, where they received the report that Wantz was to undergo the surgery a few hours before the tall hurler was wheeled into the operating room. And Manager Bill Rigney told club executives in Los Angeles that many a prayer was said. Wantz's only appearance in a major league game was in the Angels' home opener against Cleveland in which he worked one inning. It was on the subsequent road trip that he began complaining of headaches. As a result, he was hospitalized in Detroit before being sent home. Early tests did not show the brain tumor but the headaches continued and he was placed on the disabled list last week.

At least a dozen and possibly 20 cars may make 10-mile trial runs, and Foyt and Clark were tabbed as the speedsters to beat in the race against the clock. Weather permitting, both were expected to crash the 160 miles per hour barrier—a feat never accomplished officially at the Speedway. Foyt Fastest Foyt, the national driving king from Houston. Tex., and' the defending "500" champ, turned in the fastest practice laps late Friday, an unofficial 161.7 mph. Clark, who last year became the first foreign driver since 1919 to win the pole spot and at a record average, had a best lap of 160.228 mph. The former Grand Prix world champion from Scotland set one and four-lap records last year of 159.377 and 158.828 mph, respectively. Foyt and Clark are driving similar rear - engine Lotus- Fords. Other touted drivers expected to qualify today at or near record speeds included Dan Gurney, former "500" winner Parnelli Jones, Al Miller and rookies Mario Andretti and Bill Foster, the latter a Canadian. Miller, one of the top Canadian sters in practice, said; flatly that speeds of 162 mph will be necessary to win the pole position. Other drivers were more cautious but indicated they felt Clark's records will be smashed barring adverse weather conditions. Crashes Mar Practice Dress rehearsal practice Friday was marred by two crashes but the drivers escaped serious injury. Veteran Don Branson, 44. a grandfather from Champaign, 111., lost control of his rear-engine machine coming out of the southwest turn, hit the outside retaining wall ana' shot across the track into the infield. While the car was damaged, Branson leaped from the cockpit unhurt. Shortly before practice closed, Ebb Rose, Houston, Tex., spun in the northwest turn and one of the powerful eight-cylinder Novis plowed into him broadside. Handsome Bobby Unser, Albuquerque, N.M., a member of a famed racing family, suffered minor injuries and his Novi machine may be sidelined i for the weekend. Rose was not injured but his rear-engine car was also damaged.

But the swelling is gone — Lucky Debonair turned in a final impressive workout with no after effects — and he was pronounced fit and ready for the testing mile and three-sixteenths race by his trainer and his veterinarian. Ready to face Lucky Debonair again were Ogden Phipp's Dapper Dan, Raymond Guest's Tom Rolfe, Albert Warner's Native Charger, Mrs. Ben Cohen's Hail To All, Earl Allen's Swift Ruler and Isidor Bierber's Flag Raiser.
