TV Fight Fans To Get Look At New Face NEW YORK (AP)-A new face is being served to television fight fans in Billy Bello tonight but the cheers and the victory probably will go to that old warrior, Gaspar Ortega of Mexico, at Madison Square Garden. Bello, a 20-year-old New York graduate of the small clubs and the Garden preliminary ranks, is rated a 2-1 underdog to the Indian from Mexicali in the 10-rounder. It will be telecast by ABC starting at 9 p.m. EST. The matching of an up-and-coming youngster with a supposedly fading veteran is an old story of the ring. Only in this case the swarthy, still unmarked veteran doesn't feel he's ready for the scrap heap. Neither do most'ex­ pert observers. Only 27 although he's in his 11th year of fighting for cash, Ortega is ranked 10th among the welterweight contenders by Ring and fourth among the junior middleweights by the World Boxing Association. His record is 85-27-3 to unranked Billy's 17-5-1. Dodgers Nip Cincy, hO By MIKE RATIIET Associated Press Sports Writer Chuck Miller was hitting .185. Jim Duffalo hadn't won since the third day of the season. Together they gave San Francisco a 6-5, 11-inning victory over St. Louis Friday night, becoming the latest members of a growing group giving the Cardinals the bird in the National League pennant scramble. Hiller slapped a single in 11th to drive in the tie-breaking run while Duffalo staggered through two innings of relief pitching—despite issuing four walks—to post his first victory since April 10 and send the Cardinals' down to their sixth consecutive loss. A week ago, the Cardinals were on the top perch, lVfe games in front. Now they've dropped to fourth place, 3W games back of the pacesetting Los Angeles Dodgers, who whipped Cincinnati 1-0 on Frank Howard's homer and two-hit pitching by Johnny Podres. The Chicago Cubs, three games behind the Dodgers, took over second place with a 3-2, 11-inning decision over Philadelphia. Houston defeated Milwaukee 4-2 and Pittsburgh handed the New York Mets their eighth loss in a row, 3-1. Cleveland knocked off the American League-leading New York Yankees 4-1, Boston drubbed the Chicago White Sox 8-3, Detroit edged Kansas City 4-3, Washington belted the Los Angeles Angels 5-1 and Baltimore and Minnesota split. The Orioles won 4-3, the Twins 7-5. The, third-place Giants' climaxed an uphill struggle when Hiller singled off loser Ed Bauta, 3-3, following a leadoff single by Jose Pagan and a sacrifice. Willie McCovey's two-run homer, his 21st, had provided a 4-3 lead in the fifth, but the Giants needed Harvey Kuenn's ninth-inning run- producing single to tie the Cardinals and send it into extra innings. Bill White homered for St. Louis. Howard's 13th homer, off Jim O'Toole in the seventh inning, brought Podres' record to 6-6. In his last two starts, Podres has allowed only seven hits and one run, striking out 16 while issuing only two walks. Against the Reds, Podres allowed only singles by Tommy Haper in the fourth and Johnny Edwards in the sixth and kept Cincinnati from getting a runner to second base. O'Toole touched for six hits, lost his third in a row and is 13-6. The Cubs won in the 11th when Ernie Banks doubled, took third on a wild pitch by Johnny Klippstein and scored on Andre Rodgers' sacrifice fly. Ron Santo singled home the tying run for Chicago after the Phillies moved ahead 2-1 on Ruben Amaro's homer, the first for the .170 hitter since 1961. Lindy McDaniel, 5-2, was the winner in relief of Larry Jackson. Klippstein is 3-4. By The Associated Press AMERICAN LEAGUE W. L. Pet. G.B.

Indium Rip Yankees, 4-1 By JIM MACKLEMAN Associated Press Sports Writer You can't say much for the way John Wyatt has been pitching lately, but you've got to give the Kansas City reliever credit for versatility. Big John finds a lot of ways to let the other side's winning run across. On.Friday night the Detroit Tigers beat Wyatt and the Athletics 4 -3 with a seventh-inning run produced on a walk, Wyatt's throwing error, a sacrifice and Wyatt's off- target peg to the plate after fielding a grounder. All this came after Wyatt's horrendous July Fourth at Washington, where he balked the deciding run across in one game and walked it across in the other in the Senators' doubleheader sweep of the A's. In other American League action Friday night, good-hitting pitchers Dick Donovan and Earl Wilson sparked Cleveland and Boston to victories, left-hander Don Rudolph won for the first time in two months as the Senators kept their mild streak going, and Minnesota pulled out of a slump by gaining a doubleheader split at Baltimore. Donovan rapped a double and single in the Indians' 4-1 victory over New York's first-place Yankees. Wilson tripled in two runs in a six-run first inning and later added a single as the Red Sox battered the Chicago White Sox 8-3. The last-place Senators won their fourth in a row, 5-1 over the Los Angeles Angels, behind Rudolph's seven-hit pitching. And a flurry of late scoring carried the Twins over the Orioles 7-5 after Baltimore had won the opening game 4-3. In the National League—Johnny Podres' two-hit pitching and Frank Howard's homer led the Los Angeles Dodgers over Cincinnati 1-0; San Francisco edged St. Louis 6-5 in 11 innings; the Chicago Cubs nipped Philadelphia 3-2, also in 11 innings; Houston beat Milwaukee 4-2; and Pittsburgh downed the New York Mets 3-1. The A's tied Detroit 3-3 in the top of the seventh and Wyatt was sent in to face the Tigers in the bottom of the inning. Bill Freehan drew a leadoff walk, then Wyatt threw wide to second trying for a force after pitcher Mickey Lolich's bunt. The runners were sacrificed along and Freehan scored the deciding run when Wyatt picked up Dick McAuliffe's roller to the mound and threw high and wide to the plate. The victory was Detroit's fourth in a row and the loss was the A's fourth straight. Donovan smacked a double in the third inning against loser Jim Bouton, helping the Indians to their first run, then singled and scored in the fifth/when Cleveland made it 3-0. The right-hander held the Yanks to six hits, including Hector Lopez' seventh-inning homer. Despite the loss the Yankees stayed 4te games in front, with the Twins taking over second by two percentage points over the White Sox. Wilson's tremendous triple climaxed the Red Sox' opening in- 'rk. „ , SIGN 'EM UP—Fan in the left field stands (indicated by arrow) makes a great catch of home run ball hit by Ruben Amaro in fifth inning of Friday's game betyeen the Philadelphia Phillies and the Chicago Cubs.

The slick young upstarts may as well forget about the $9,000 first-place money. The elderly brigade has taken over and the instigator is Doug Ford of Yonkers, N.Y., who brushes aside his 41st birthday next month. Nudging him for the big payday is 41-year-old Jack Fleck of Los Angeles and the 48- year-old Herman Reiser of Barberton, Ohio, who would just as soon fish as golf these days. The amiable, fast-playing Ford, who admitted he "played lousy and putted worse" in his third round, heads into the final 18 today with a 54-hole total of 210. That's three under par oyer the wind-whipped suburban Scarboro course that has the young set stymied. Two strokes behind are Reiser and Fleck. None of this three 1 ning outburst against White Sox starter Dave DeBusschere, Pete Ward homered for Chicago in the fourth and Wilson gave up two more runs in the seventh, but went all the way with a nine- hitter.

CAU PRINCETON 3 1712 LINDY'S LANES - Princeton, 111. CLEVELAND (AP) - Manager Ralph Houk wants the American League to win the All-Star battle with the National League here Tuesday, but he also wants as many players as possible to get into action. "The fans come to see all these fine players in action," said Houk, who pilots the New York Yankees. "In fact, 1 don't think you can weaken the team by substituting. All the players picked are good and can do the job." Houk was peppered with questions about the All-Star Game as he brought the Yankees here for a four-game series with the Indians. What did he think of the beef by Boston first baseman Dick Stuart? Why wasn't New York's Whitey Ford chosen? Why was Roger Maris of the Yankees passed over? Why was Cleveland pitcher Jim (Mudcat) Grant picked rather than Jack Kraliek of the Indians? Showers TOMOiBOW Time to Insulate WHITf'S PHONE M2 -VIW | "You have to remember that I most of these picks were made a couple of weeks ago," said Houk. "At that time, Jim Bouton and not Whitey was the logical choice from our club. ! "And 1 tried to take only one pitcher from a team if possible. Jim Grant is a good situation pitcher. He has that real good fast ball a lot of the time. "A right-handed pitcher like him should help us against that National League lineup." Houk said that if he had picked ; Maris, he would have had to omit Bob Allison of Minnesota, I who has been hitting and fielding well. Stuart was angered because he was left off the All-Star team, although he was the second choice of the players behind starting first sacker Joe Pepitone of New York. Houk picked Norm Siebern of Kansas City because a player was needed from the Athletics. Stuart called Houk a 'busher" and a "third-string catcher" who got the job of managing the Yankees because Casey Stengel was fired. "1 can understand Stuart being unhappy," said Houk. 't's an honor to make the team. You have to pick at least one player from each team and that causes some problems. 1 tried ... in all possible cases to select the second man in the balloting." Houk admitted that he was a third-string catcher with New York from 1947-1954, but added with a laugh: "But I was the world's richest third-string catcher." The manager said he will name his batting order Monday, along with the starting pitcher. some contributed anything spectacular in Friday's third round- Ford and Reiser each posted three-over-par 74s and Fleck an even-par 71—but of the 87 starters only six were able to break par over the windy 6,738-yard layout. The three at the top said they played a "lousy game." They opened the door for the younger hot-shot players to walk through and put up a challenge for today's final 18, but only two—30-year-old Dan Reefe of Wayland, Mass. and 32-year-old Moe Norman of Toronto—could take advantage of it and move into serious contention. Reefe came in with a two-under 69 to go with 71-73 rounds for a 213 total, to go into a fourth-place tie with Norman who plays every shot as if it were his last. Norman shot his third consecutive 71 in a weird round that saw him make the turn in two-over- par 38 on five bogeys, three birdies and one par. •' Another four were tied at 214, George Rnudson of Toronto, Jerry Barber and Charlie Sifford of Los Angeles and Bill Eggers, Henderson, Nev. One thing appears certain. Defending Champion Ted Rroll of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., won't step forward to accept the $9,000 first- place money. He has never been in serious contention with rounds of 74-73—77. At 224, he can hope only to salvage some of the lesser prize money. Non-Title Bout Set NEW YORR (UPI) - Emile Griffith of New York, who recently won the world welterweight championship for the third time, will take on Holly Mims of Washington, D.C., the ninth-ranking middleweight contender, in a 10- round non-title fight at Saratoga, N.Y., Aug. 10.

Gradually they are gaining stature as pennant contenders and Friday they grabbed their fifth consecutive victory with a 3-2 triumph over the Philadelphia Phils in an 11-inning battle. The decision put the /Cubs 10 games over .500 with a 45-36 record, their best since they won the pennant fh 1945. Their pitching continues to click and they are taking full advantage of every scoring situation. Battling from behind, the Cubs scored a run in the third inning for a 1-1 tie and then scored again in the eighth on Ron Santo's clutch single to again tie the Phils at 2-2. In the 11th, Ernie Banks doubled with one out, advanced to third on a wild pitch and finally scored on Andre. Rodgers* sacrifice fly with the bases loaded. Reliever Lindy McDaniel was the winner after pitching four scoreless innings. The triumph kept the Cubs in five-team scramble for the National League lead. Bob Buhl (7-5) will be in charge of trying to stretch the Cub streak to six games against the Phillies today. Buhl's foe will be veteran righthander Cal McLish (7-4). The Chicago White Sox had their victory hopes shelled early against Boston Friday night. The Red Sox hammered young Dave De Busschere for six runs in the first inning and then coasted to an 8-3 triumph. The loss deprived the Sox of a chance of cutting New York's American League lead since the Yankees suffered a 4-1 loss against Cleveland. The Sox remain 4 '/2 games behind the Yankees. Pete Ward slugged a home run, his 11th, for Chicago in the fourth inning. The Sox added two other runs in the seventh inning after Boston had sped to an 8-1 lead. The White Sox will send Ray Herbert (8-5) against Dave Morehead (5-5) - tonight before winding up their road trip with a single game in Boston Sunday.

UNIFAX Cardinals Drop 6th Straight SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The failing St. Louis Cardinals tried hard to break a five-game losing streak Friday night but San Francisco tried harder to win and captured the victory in the 11th inning, 6-5. Now burdened with a six-game losing streak, the Cardinals have dropped to fourth place .in the National League, 3V 2 games behind the front-running Los Angeles Dodgers. The Chicago Cubs hold second place while the Giants moved into third. An 11th inning single by Chuck Hiller, following a leadoff single by Jose Pagan and a sacrifice, ended an uphill struggle in which the Giants twice came from behind to tie the-score. Willie McCovey's 21st homer off starter Lou Burdette in the fifth put the Giants ahead 4 -3. But the Cardinals went ahead with two runs in the eighth on reliever Bob Bolin's wildness. He walked Bill White and Ken Boyer and wild-pitched them up a base. White scored on an infield out and Boyer on Charley James' single. A single by Harvey Kuenn drove in the tying run with one out in the last of the ninth, The win went to reliever Jim Duffalo (2-0). Loser was Ed Bauta (3-3), one of four Cardinal relievers. Faced with a serious threat to their pennant hopes, the Redbirds today planned to use Ray Sadecki (4-4) against the Giant's Billy Pierce (2-5). Doubleday Field at West Point is named after Maj. Gen.
