Giants Top Cards—• Reds Edge Dodgers On Coker's Single in 11th By FRED DOWN UPI Sports Writer The San Francisco 'Giants aren't the least bit embarrassed when rivals say there's "something Oriental" about their National League pennant drive. They just say, "We told you so." There's something "Oriental," all right, and he's Masanori Murakami, the 21-year-old left- handed pitcher from Yamana- shi Prefecture, Japan, who has developed into quite an effective relief pitcher in his sophomore season. "Oriental" is one of those old baseball terms that means "fishy" or not quite up to snuff. But Murakami is rewriting that lexicon with top-grade pitching that has helped the Giants move to within two games and 15 percentage points of the league-leading Los Angeles Dodgers. Preserves Win Murakami, who has pitched . effectively in four of the Giants' last seven victories, struck out the dangerous Bill White with the tying run on base and two out in the ninth inning Friday night to preserve San Francico's 3-2 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals. The six-foot, 180-pound Murakami has a 3-1 record in 24 appearances for the Giants this season. The Cincinnati Reds shaded the Dodgers 5-4 in 11 innings, the Milwaukee Braves downed the Houston Astros 84, the Philadelphia Phillies 'blanked the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-0 and the Chicago Cubs nipped the New York Mets 4-3 in other NL action. In the American League, Chicago topped Cleveland 11-5, Detroit edged out New York 5-4, Kansas City walloped Baltimore 9-4, Los Angeles defeated Washington 6-1 and Minnesota topped Boston 9-3. Murakami's close-out relief rewarded Gaylord Perry with his eighth victory as Ray Sa- decM, a 20-game winner for the Cardinals in 1964, suffered his 10th defeat against two wins. Hal Lanier doubled home two runs and scored himself on Dick Groat's wild relay to provide the Giants -with all then- runs in the fourth inning. Lou Brock had a triple and three singles for St. Louis. Win In llth The Reds edged the Dodgers when Jim Coker singled home pinch-runner Marty Keough in the llth inning. The Reds had scored their four earlier runs on solo homers by Tommy Harper, Don Pavletich, Deron Johnson and Pete Rose. Ron Per- ranoski suffered his fifth loss against three victories. Tony Cloninger pitched a seven-hitter and struck out nine to win his 15th game for the! Braves behind a 12-hit attack that included a two-run double and a homer by Gene Oliver. Hank Aaron had three hits and Mack Jones a homer for the Braves while Bob Aspromonte had three hits for the Astros. Jim Bunning yielded only five hits and struck out 12, raising his record to 13-7 behind the Phillies' nine-hit attack. Johnny Callison hit his 25th homer and Cookie Rojas drove in two runs for the Phillies while Bob Bailey had two hits for the Pirates. Bunning had clear sailing after he pitched • out of a bases- filled, none-out jam in the first inning. Larry Jackson survived a three-run ninth-inning homer by Gary Kolb to beat the Mets for the 13th straight time and raise his 1965 record to 10 wins and 14 losses. Don Landrum hit a two-run homer and Billy Williams had a double and a single to lead the Cubs' nine-hit attack. 11 Innings Los Angeles 010 010 110 00-4 5 2 Cincinnati 111 010 000 01—5 10 3 Podres, Reed (6), Perranoski (7) and Roseboro.

Suits Could Keep Braves In Milivaukee MILWAUKEE (UPI) — Th Milwaukee Braves' path t Atlanta was flanked on tw sides today by suits aimed E heading off the scheduled mov of the National League baseball team. Atty. Gen. Bronson La Fo lette intervened Friday on be Today's Sport Parade— Casey Wants to Return, Manage Mets Next Year By MILTON RICHMAN UPI Sports Writer NEW YORK (UPI) — Casey Stengel's deep, dark secret finally is out. He wants to come back and manage the Mets next year, and right now, even as he's painfully practicing how to walk all over again in his hospital •room, he has every intention of •doing so. Casey didn't quite spell out his objective in so many words during Friday's 50-minute session with the press, but he made his purpose plain enough t>y virtually everything he said. He made a special point, for example, of letting everyone kno$ who is running the Mets, even now that he's in the hospital. "I'm still manager of this club," he snapped, his eyes narrowing when someone asked whether he had been consulted before outfielder Danny Napoleon was sent back to the minors the other night. "I don't know why you asked me that." Only The Hip He also made a point of clearly showing that although his hip was fractured, his mental machinery wasn't. "My mind tells me to go left, I go left," he said, referring to his new attempts at walking. "My mind tells me to go right, I go right. Ain't nothing wrong with me except my hum side and that's gonna be okay I presume." There were other indications, too. Some were a little more j subtle than others but they were there nevertheless. He spoke of the Mets as "we," as if for special emphasis because that happens to be "~a pronoun he doesn't use too much. He revealed he's keeping close tabs on the team — "I think all the players are putting out terrific" — and he joked about the plastic ball inserted in his hip. ' "Now," he dead-panned, "I lind out there's other people alive with it." Balked At Pictures Stengel displayed no self-consciousness whatsoever in exhibiting his still raw, 17-inch long incision, although he balked a bit when photographers asked him to show it again later so they could make a few more pictures. :"If they say it's okay, I'll do it," said Casey, never really bothering to explain who "they" were. Fifteen seconds later, without ever getting an okay, Stengel gingerly got up from his wheelchair and like an old warrior, proudly showed his wound again. :"I can walk down the hall this minute and I can walk a block or so," he said, "but now if you were to ask me to go out and walk three miles, that would be different." -Casey warmed up slowly, but once he got started, there was no stopping him. He proved he could take steps in any direction he wished with the aid of a walkerette, which is an aluminum, U-shaped device about three feet high that he supports himself on. Uses Double-Talk Somehow, the walkerette doesn't make its user look nearly as helpless as a cane or crutches, mjght He. c a me .up with a dash of double - talk when someone wanted to know whether he could walk yet without it. "If I walked without it, I wouldn't need it," he said, reasonably enough. "The reas o n i-they want you to use it is so ' you don't hurt yourself." Stengel may have offered the biggest clue as to how he really feels while his nurse, Rita Smith, was preparing him to meet the press. Miss Smith, a honey - haired knockout from Billings, Mont., who now roots for the Mets "naturally/' combed her 75-year-old I patient's hair neatly in his room jand told him: "You look good now." "I looked good," shot back Casey, "the day I came in ihere." half of the state of Wisconsin charging the Braves and th league with violating the state antitrust laws by planning, t move the Braves to the souther city next year. Milwaukee County filed a sim ilar action Tuesday, allegin the move violates federal a n state antitrust laws and Wiscon sin common law. The county action was file in federal court. La Follett said he would file the state su_ in Milwaukee Circuit Court The county is a co-plaintiff the state action. The Wisconsin suit seeks a re straining order to prevent th Braves from playing horn games any other place than in Milwaukee County Stadium un less the league .grants a nev franchise to either the count] or the Milwaukee Brewers Base ball Club, Inc La Follette also asked tha the circuit court assess a pen alty of $5,000 against each o the defendants. The prospect of prolonged liti gation — more than 400 case are on the federal court calen dar ahead of the county suit — conceivably could result in an other lame duck season her< for the Braves, if the restrain ing order is granted.

Sikes Leads Nicklaus by One Stroke By EDWARD J M.CFALL UPI Sports Writer PHILADELPHIA (UPI)—Lan ky R. H. Sikes, a young pro kfrom Arkansas, held a slim one stroke lead over Jack Nicklaus a slumbering bear, going into today's third round of the $125 000 Philadelphia Golf Classic. Nicklaus credited 11% hours sleep with enabling him to charge at Sikes' heels Friday with a--sizzling seven-under-pai 65 for a second round total ol 136 at the par 72 Whitemarsh Valley Country Club. His round featured six birdies, one eagle and a bogie. Sikes, who took a four-stroke lead into the second round with a 64 the first day, slipped to a 71 and a 36-hole total of 135. Joe Campbell, stocky pro from Perdido Bay, Fla.. jumped into contention with a 66 and a two-day total of 138 to tie him at third place with Australian Kel Nagle and Johnny Pott. Nagle, runner-up in the U.S. Open this year, had a 70 after a first round 68 and Pott improved to a 67 after an opening 71. Seven pros, including Tony Lema, early first round leader Tom Shaw of Portland, Ore., kand Dave Marr, were grouped at 140 while Gary Player, the U.S. Open champion, was seven strokes back at 142. Ben Hogan and Sam Snead, the veteran stars from another golfing era, survived the cut in the field of some 140 players to the low 83 players. The cutoff figure was 147. Hogan slipped a 75 after an opening round of 71 for 146 while Snead railed for a 67 after a 75 and a 36-hole total of 146. Arnold Palmer, struggling to get back on top, withdraw from the tournament after a disastrous back nine of 43 gave him a round of 77 and a 146 total. Auerbach Signs New Pact With Celtics BOSTON (UPI) — Boston Celtics Coach Arnold (Red) Auerbach was on a "long honeymoon" today with a new five year contract tucked in his pocket. Auerbach formerly signed a five-year pact Friday as executive vice president and general manager of the Celtics and announced that he would coach the world champion club for at least another year. Marvin Kratter, chairman of the board of Ruppert-Knickerbocker Brewing Co. which recently purchased the Celtics, said Auerbach would "run the show on a practically autonomous basis." "We are formalizing our agreement with Red. I pledge to you a long and happy honeymoon with Boston and the Celtics. The team will remain right here," Kratter said in renewing the new owners' pledge to keep the Celtics in Boston. AIRMAIL PIONEER First night airmail flight was made in 1921. PAGE 2 Creensburg (lad.) Daily News, Saturday, Aug. 7,1965 Browns 24, All Stars 16-— Collegians Score Under QB Huarte By ED SA1NSBURY UPI Sports Writer CHICAGO (UPI)—The Scoreboard read Cleveland Browns 24, College All Stars 16. And Otto Graham was second guessing himself and Blanton Collier was trying to quiet Ms nervei today. . Graham of the All Stars won dered why he hadn't startec Notre Dame's John Huarte a quarterback. After all, Huarte now property of the New YorJ Jets, sparked the collegians to their only two touchdowns—and with only 22 minutes to do it As for Collier, his Browns had won the game but he had lost his team's best pass re ceiver for an estimated six weeks. End Paul Warfield, who caught 52 passes for 920 yards and nine touchdowns in the Browns' championship cam paign last year, broke his lef collarbone going downfield for a Frank Ryan pass in the first half. He should be out for the entire exhibition season ant maybe the first one or two league games. Took It Bravely Collier was brave about it: "It's unnerving," he said. Graham was a bit unnerve^ himself by his decision to hole Huarte until the Soldier Fielc classic's waning moments. Huarte had to wait until Navy's Roger Saubach, like Warfield a game casualty, anc alifornia's Craig Morton had a turn. With Staubach and Morton al :he controls, the collegians go1 three points in 38 minutes. It was the 21st win for the pros against nine for the Stars with two ties in the series. And it was the third victory in four appearances for the Browns. But had Huarte been in action earlier on the rain-soaked field, it might have been dif- 'erent. Good Completion Percentage Despite the slippery ball and ioggy footing—plus an intermittent rain—huarte connected on his first nine passes and vound up with 10 completions and 137 yards in 13 tries. His five-yard tosses to Chuck VLercein of . Yale •-, and • lance Rentzel of Oklahoma accounted or the Star touchdowns. • Staubach had his moments, le hit on four of six passes for 6 yards before he was side- ined with a dislocation of his chronically injured left shoulder. orton hit on two of nine hrows for nine yards. During tie Staubach - Morton regime he Stars scored only three ioints. They came on Mercein's 6 - yard field goal. Graham praised Huarte's play nd said it was obvious his earn would have done better if Huarte had started the game. Jut Staubach got the assignment on the basis of his prac- ice performance, Graham said, nd Huarte himself said the ommission was deserved. The Browns displayed bril- :ant running from Jim Brown nd fine passing from Frank tyan, perhaps enough to win if Huarte had been in there long- r. Gained 149 Yards Brown carried 22 times or 149 yards. Ryan connected n nine of 24 passes for 123 ards. That including a 10 yard ouchdown toss to Gary Collins. Brown plunged seven yards or one touchdown and turned n a 43-yard run late in game to stifle an All Star ireat. The third Browns touchdown ame on an All-Star mistake. Only 10 men were on the field •hen Frank Lambert of Missis- sippi attempted a punt. Jamie Caleb and Stan Sczurek both broke through, blocker Ken Willard could take only one oJ them, so Caleb blocked the punt and Sczurek recovered in the end zone for the score. Lou Groza kicked a 30-yard field and three conversions to wrap up the Browns scoring. Collier said he felt his team played "pretty well for this time of year." But he was concerned aSout its 137 yards hi penalties. He blamed many of them on faulty timing or blocking.
