It's been almost a decade 1A5B, to N&tionaJ be exact — since any League team held a fiVfe-gamo first-place lead at this stage of the race and, lest it be forgotten, that was the year in Which the Dodgers gave Brooklyn its one and only world championship. Apparently determined to avoid a repetition of the collapse that cost them the 1962 pennant, the Dodgers increased their 1963 lead to 6Ms games Sunday when they beat the Philadelphia Phillies, 3-2, in a game shortened to six innings by rain. The victory was their seventh in a row and their* 12th in their last 13 games. Johnny Podres continued the excellent pitching which has marked the Dodger drive with a seven-hitter for his eighth Vic* tory against six losses.

Keokuk Driver Wins 200-Mile Stock Car Race MILWAUKEE (AP). — Veteran Don White, Keokuk, Iowa, won the 200-mile late model stock car race Sunday before 32,659 spectators. White, driving a 1963 Ford, grabbed the lead on the 120th lap and never relinquished it as he picked up first-place money of #5,492. He won the same race last year. White averaged 89.374 miles an hour. Jim M c E1 r e a t h, Harlington, Tex., driving a 1962 Ford, finished second and was followed so highly that he is willing to sacrifice his own career in their behalf. Normally a man of even temperament and of deep religious convictions, Dark gave vent to his indignation Sunday, a day after Philadelphia righthander Ryne Duren threw dusters at Willie McCovey and Willie Mays. "The opposing pitchers are, picking our men off one by one and it must stop," said Dark. "I've made repeated protests to the umpires and they have done nothing about it. Well,,if the umpires won't protect our players I will — even if I'm suspended for life." National League President Warren Giles was informed that Dark was angry about bean balls. Giles said he hadn't heard Dark's com- — not by throwing at the players on the opposing team but a pitchers who Bi ' ' at " first and what about one of our other men in the hospital (Jim Ray Hart).

Baltimore won the opener 6-3 and the White Sox finally grabbed the nightcap 3-2 on Nellie Fox' two-run single in the ninth inning. But during the second game Hitchcock charged out of the dugout ;ifl'T Buzhardt W I HMI Brooks Robinson became the second Ori­ ole hit in the head with a fast ball. In the third inning a Buzhardt fast ball smashed second baseman Jerry Adair on the left side of the mouth. Adair left the game, needed 10 stitches around the lips, and suffered a slight fracture of the cheekbone.

"I was mad when I saw two of my guys get hit in the head/' said Hitchcock. "I didn't intend to go all the way to the mound. I stopped myself 15 feet from the mound before anyone stopped me.

Buzhardt left the inning him out shoulder game after and Looez said Lopez because Buz- the fifth he took hardt's shoulder was troubling him. Asked if he took Buzhardt out for a pinch hitter because he feared that Baltimore pitchers might throw at Buzhardt in retaliation, Lopez said "no." "I wouldn't take him out or anybody else. If they want to throw that's their business but I wouldn't take a man out for fear somebody might throw at him." Lopez said there was no intent Lopez. don't think the kid saw the pitch otherwise he might have gotten out of the .way. Robinson had no chance to get out of the way. But why would we throw at him? There were men on second and third and two outs. Jf we were afraid he might get a hit we could walk him. By throwing at him it could be a wild pitch and the game would be tied." Bu2hardt said he couldn't understand why Hitchcock charged after him. "He should know from my record that I never throw at anyone," he said. "Both times I had to pitch tight and the ball simply sailed toward the batter. I had thrown Adair two curves and he apparently was looking for another one and never made an attempt to get out qf the way. Robinson didn't have a chance, the ball sailed in on him, I'm glad neither of them was seriously injured." Hoyt Wilhelm entered the game in the fifth and pitched three hitless innings before the Orioles broke through for two runs and the lead in the ninth. But the White Sox came back in their half of the inning by loading the bases with no outs. Pete Ward and J.C. Martin singled. Al Weis drew a walk from reliever Steve Barber.
