Reds Defeat Colts Twice By TIM MORIARTY The Cincinnati Reds are back in the National League pennant picture because Bob Purkey and Johnny Edwards went to the movies last week. Purkey, a 23-game winner last year who missed the first month of this season with a shoulder injury, became alarmed when he lost four straight games, so he and his ballcrymatc decided to look at films of the big right­ hander's recent performances. Edwards immediately spotted a change in Purkcy's delivery. 'The movies showed that Bob was unconsciously favoring his arm," the Rods' baby-faced catcher revealed. "He wasn't rearing back like he used to. He was kinda pushing his fast ball up there and as a result It lacked that little hop." The lesson Purkey learned from that single movie session paid off handsomely Sunday. Big s fast ball had plenty of hop Pitching National League — Maloney, Reds 11-2; Koufax, Dodgers 11 -3: on it ' as hc pitchcc | his fil . st com .

Any combination of four Clinton victories or Burlington defeats will give the C-Sox the championship of the first half of the league season, which ends Saturday. Clinton lowered the number with two weekend victories over Fox Cities, but the second-place Bees, the only (cam with a mathematical chance of catching Clinton, also won both their games to stay 4',fe games behind the C-Sox. A home run by Clinton catcher Ed Barberie in the eighth inning gave Lhe C-Sox a 3-2 victory over the Foxes Sunday. Ed Stroud had lied the game in the previous inning with a two-run single for Clinton, which got only four hits off losing hurler Ed Petryshyn. Clinton defeated Fox Cilies 3-1 Saturday night.

(NEA) — Fifty stock cars will go to the post in the $62,000 Firecracker 400 nt the Day!una International Speedway July 4. Rookie Cops Win ior JSY By JOfi SAKGfB Manager Ralph Houk of the New York Yankees should feel vindicated today. If was just, a little more than a year ago when Houk 'was forced to decide between a pea- green rookie and the veteran Robin Roberts. He went for the "kid" and let, Roberts go. If your memory is as good as yoi think it Is you'll recall what a ruckus that move caused, especially after Roberts caught on with the Baltimore Orioles and proceeded to win 10 games. Young Jim Bouton, the "kid" Houk kept instead, struggled to a not-too-impressive 7-7 season and was earmarked for the bullpen when the 1963 American League season began. The 24-year-old right-hander did such a good job in some early-season relief roles that Houk promoted him to a starting berth. That was back on May 12 against the Orioles. Since then, Jim has won eight ot nine decisions, including a sparkling four- hitter Sunday that paced "the Yankees to an 8-0 victory over the Boston Red Sox and increased their AL lead to two tull games over the Chicago White Sox, who split a doubleheader with the Cleveland Indians, winning the opener, 2-1, and dropping the nightcap, 2-0. Tigers Beat A's In the other games, the Detroit Tigers buried the Kansas City A's, 11-2, the Baltimore Orioles downed the Minnesota Twins, 4-1. and the Washington Senators Angels, 4-0. Bouton, who reduced his earned run average to 2.06 by blanking the Red Sox, didn't give up his first hit until Dick Stuart doubled in the fifth. He gave up three other hits, all singles, and two walks to boost his season record to 10-2, best won-lost record on the Yankee staff. It also was Bouton's second shutout and sixth complete game. Roger Maris whacked his 15th homer, a 410-foot blast, and drove in another run to make things easy for Bouton. Clete Boyer also had two hits and drove in two runs as the Yanks reeled off their 10th victory in the last 11 games. The Tigers, who finally are beginning to play the kind of ball everyone expected of them, picked up their first straight win as rookie Pete Lolich gained his second victory. The Tigers raked five Kansas City pitchers for 10 hits, including four by Bubba Phillips and Rocky Colavito's ninth homer. Al Smith drove in two of the Baltimore runs on a homer and a double to help Steve Barber gained his 11th victory. Stu Miller saved Barber with a neat 2 1-3-inning relief stint. Tom Cheney gave up only four hits as the Senators snapped a 10-game losing streak against the Angels. It was Cheney's seventh complete game and seventh victory. BIG MONEY—Julius Boros, winner of the 63rd U. S, Open Golf Tournament at Brookllnc Coun­ try Club Sunday, holds up his winning check for $16,000* UNIFAX Boros, 43, Oldest Man To Win U.S. Open Crown BROOKLINE, Mass. (UP1) Julius Boros, getting his second golfing wind at 43, thanks Arnold Palmer and Jacky Cupit today for his second U.S. Open victory. "First I want to thank them for the way they played the 17th hole in the final round on Saturday," Boros said. "And then i want to thank them for taking a lot of strokes out there Sunday. They, encouraged me a lot." The oldest player ever to win America's premier golt tournament, Boros made a shambles of the playoff with Cupit and Palmer by shooting a bne-under-pai 4 33-37-70. That put him three strokes ahead of the 25-year-old Cupit, who had a 37-36—73, and six in front of Palmer, whd, suffering from dysentery, carded a 36-40-76. It wasn't the 17th hole that counted Sunday, though. For Palmer it was .the 11th, where he blew any chance he had by coming up with a triple bogey. In Saturday's two final rounds he had triple-bogeyed and bogeyed that par-four 445-yard hole. For Cupit it was the third hole, where he double-bogeyed. . Really Hurts "That really hurt," Isaid Cupit. "But J thought even on the 17th green that I still could tie Julius —until he knocked in his putt for a birdie. I knew I was gone then." The victory climaxed six w<ieks of golfing gold for Boros, who at 43 years and 112 days was three days older than Britisher Ted Ray when he won the Open in 1920. Starling with the $12,000 he won by capturing the Colonial Invitational at Fort Worth on May 12, Boros has picked up $44;155 In that six-week span. That doesn't count the $1,500 bonus which he and Cup!' and Palmer received for Sunday's playoff before 12,500 on the hot. exacting country club course of Brookline. "But I'll take it," Boros said, "lor it's spendable." Credit* Wedge Shots He credited his wedge shots out of the rough for his victory. "1 always practice getting out of the rough for the Open, and Open courses usually have heavy rough," Boros said. "1 was in the rough around the green' four times Sunday and each time got down in two. The rough is where you can waste shots. 1 don't waste many that way, and that's why 1 have been pretty lucky in the Open." He won it the first time in 1952-"My biggest golfing thrill, for it was my first tournament victory," Boros pointed out. Since that time, he has finished in the top five eight times in 10 Opens. He missed last year's Open when he failed to file his entry on time, and in 1960 failed to make the cut. Asked to explain how he suddenly regained his touch, the stone-faced belter from Mid Pines, N.C., replied: "I just go out there and .hit the ball. When 1 .hit it well, I win. When 1 don't hit it well, I lose. It's as simple as that." Sorry For Palmer He said he felt sorry for Palmer in the playoff "because 1 know he had a bad night and felt horrible out there." Palmer paid his own tribute to Boros. "When you play the kind of golf he did, you should win," Palmer said. "It would have taken a miraculous round to have beaten him, and Jacky and I were just not up to it." Warmer TOMORROW Time to Insulate WHITE'S PHONE 342-0185 Sox, Yanks in Big Series BUD NELSON W.
