12 - Sat., April 11, 1964 Redlands Daily Facts Dodgers, Angels open two-game series LOS ANGELES (UPI)—The world's champion Los Angeles Dodgers go after a victory tonight that has eluded them for two years when they meet the city champion Los Angeles Angels in the first of a two-game series. Both clubs took the city championship seriously and announced their top pitchers would work in the pair of games for which two trophies are at stake—the A! Malaikab Shrine Trophy and the Mayor's Trophy. For tonight's encounter, the top pitcher in baseball, Sandy Koufax, was scheduled to open for the Dodgers with Dean Chance on the mound for the Angels. Don Dyrsdale is scheduled to relieve Koufax and Hon Perra" noski will follow. Barry Latman picks up for Chance in his first appearance at home in an Angel uniform since being acquired from Oeveland. For Sunday afternoon's con test, Johnny Podres, Bob Miller and Pete Richert were named by manager Walt Alston to handle the pitching chores while manager Bill Rigaey tabbed Bo Belinsky as his first hurler. The first city series game was played in 1962 at Palm Springs with the Angels coming from behmd in the last two in nings to score a 6-5 victory vie tory. The series moved to the Chavez Ravine stadium the two clubs share last year and again the Angels were victorious, taking 4-3 and 3-0 decisions. The city series in its short history has grown so rapidly in stature and interest that crowds of better than 30,000 were anticipated for each game. The Angels leave for Washington immediately after Sun day's contest for the presideU' dal opener Monday against the Senators. Rigney expected to go with the same lineup he will use in Washington and includes a pair of iwkies—Bobby Knoop at second base and Dick Simpson in centerfield. Others in the Angels' starting lineup will be Albie Pearson in left field, Jim Fregosi at shortstop, Charlie Dees or Joe Adcock at first, Lee Thomas in right field. Bob Bodgars catching and Chance pitching. With Maury Wills resting a pulled leg muscle suffered Thursday against the Trojans, the Dodger lineup will consist of Dick Tracewski at short, Jim Gilliam at second, Willie Davis in centerfield, Tommy Davis in. left field, Ron Fairly at first, Frank Howard in right field, John Werhas at third, John Roseboro catching and Koufax pitching.

Experts takmg part in the United Press International's annual pre-season baseball survey 'predict that the Yankees will rebound from their unprecedented four-game series defeat of 1963 to make Yogi Berra a World Series winner in his first season as a manager, But the experts see the Yank- ess beating the San Francisco Giants — not the Dodgers — in the 1964 World Series. The Dodgers, according to the experts, will finish second in the National League pennant race. The voting supported the wide-spread feeling that the Yankees will win easily in the American League but that four, five or even six teams may be contenders in the National League. Overwhelmintf Favorites Nineteen of the 21 sportswrit ers and broadcasters, all of, whom have viewed the teams in spring training during the last month, picked the Yankees to win and one each selected them for second and third places. That gave the Yankees 207 o£ a possible 210 points and an overwhelming 32-point lead over the Minnesota Twins, who finished second in the overall balloting. The Twins received the two first-place votes which did not go to the Yankees and wound up with 175 points, 14 more than the Chicago White Sox. The top three were followed, in order, by the Detroit Tigers (155 points), Baltimore Orioles (131), Cleveland Indians (110), Boston Red Sox (75) Los Angeles Angeles (70), Kansas City Athletics (41) and Washington Senators (30). Six teams—the Giants, Dodgers, St Louis Cardinals, Philadelphia Phillies, Cincinnati Beds and Pittsburgh Pirates — re ceived at least one first-place vote in the National League voting. The Giants had 11 first-place votes, nine for second and one for third giving them a total of 199 points. The Dodgers bad five for first and eight each for second and third for 187 points and the Cirdinals were third in the balloting with vote totals of 2-3-6-7-3 spread over the first five places and 162 points. Following in order were the Phillies (137 points), Milwaukee Braves (124), Reds (123), Pirates (86), Chicago Cubs (71), Houston Colts (44) and New York Mets (23). Eight experts picked the Yankees to win the World Series, seven picked the Giants and four chose the Dodgers. The Cardinals and Beds received one vote each. Pomts were given on the ba sis of 10 for a first-place vote, nine for a second, eight for third and so on down to one for a lOth-place vote. Johnson sees some power in good right arm WASHINGTON (UPI)-Presi dent Johnson, an "old first baseman," believes there still some power left in his good right arm. The Chief Executive, who was presented a gold pass to league games by American League officials Friday, said he planned to be on hand at Monday's season opener between the Washington Senators and the Los Angeles Angels to throw out the first ball. "I'll try not to throw it too far," he said with a laugh to the photographers who will be assembled in front of his pres idenlial box, "I wouldn't want to hit any of you. I've got 5 good arm." Cleveland staggered by loss of Birdie Tebbeits (EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the last of 20 tffspafchet en th* 19M prespeels of the major U»gu» clubs.) • By SCOTT BAtLLlE UPI Sports Writer TUCSON. Ariz. (UPI) - The Cleveland Indians, already beset by attendance woes and reports Of a possible franchise shift, now are staggered virtu ally on the eve of opening day by the loss of manager Birdie Tebbetts. Tebbetfs, stricken by a coronary attack just last Thursday, appears out of action for the season and, while he remaios manager in name only, coach George Strickland has t>een given the unenviable job of carrying on for him. Strickland win be frying, as Tebbetts was, to mold an improved team out of a mixture of old faces, phis some new ones who could help. Vttwan* On Hand The older men on hand include veteran outfielders Al Smith and Wally Post Among the new ones are Leon Wagner, who belted 26 home runs for the Los Angeles Angels last year although dissatisfied with the remote fences of Chavez Ravine. The Indians also bought outfielder Chico Salmon from Denver of the Pacific Coast League after his .325 average won the loop title. Wagner and Smith were obtained in oU-season trades while Post is in camp on a trial basis. Established younger players include third baseman Max Al vis and center fielder Vic Da- valHIo, who both starred as rookies last year. Strickland is expected to stick mainly to last year's lineup while hoping that such key men as shortstop Dick Howser, DavaliUo and catcher John Romano .won't be laid up for lengthy periods as was the case in 1963. Infield Seems Set Howser, who was obtahied from Kansas City last Jlay when Tomy Martinez failed to make it as a rookie shortstop, is accorded the edge for the job. The rest of the infield seems set Max Alvis, who had a fine rookie season and paced the Indians in five batting departments, is sole proprietor of third. All-purpose Woodie Held is at second base. At first base is Fred Whitfield, who smashed 21 homers from the left side of] the plate last year. The catching apparently will be divided between Romano and Joe Azcue. The latter came along as an impublicized player with Howser from Kansas City La a swap for catcher Doc Edwards and hit .284 after Romano was shelved with his broken finger. Wagner and Davalillo seem set in left and center fields. In right field there sot only is Smith and Salmon but Al Luplow. The pitching seems to be in good hands with such proven right-handed starters as Pete Ramos (9-8), Dick Donovan (U-13), Jim Grant (13-14), and Gary Bell (8-5) stiU on hand. Bell also has shown well in re-] lief. Jack Kralick (13-9) gives Tebbetts the needed left-handed pitching. In relief there is Jerry Walker (6-6) Ted Abemathy Eagles pick up Mafson for his defensive s DETROIT (UPI)-When the name . OIlie Uatsoa is men tioned one generally thinks of a man running with a fbotball im- der Us arm, going over or aromid any defender who happens to get in his way. Thus, to the average football fan it seems odd that a team would want him for his defensive ability. But, apparently, that's why the Philadelphia Eagles picked him up Friday from the Detroit Lions along with defensive tackle Floyd Peters in exchange for offensive tackle J.D. Smith. Matson, 6-foot-2, 210, was one of the game's greatest runninL backs, but at 34 years old has been recently bothered by in juries. SUU, Detroit Coach George Wilson thinks Matson is ca pable of helping the Eagles — offensively, or defensively. 'Sure, Ollie's not the guy he once was, but he's still pretty good," Wilson said. "And, if he doesn't break into their offen sive backfield, they can use him on defense. "In fact, I was planning to use him mainly as a defensive back this year. He played the position with Los Angeles be fore we got him." And Eagle Coach Joe Ku harich trying to bolster the Philadelphia defensive units^ probably will try Matson on defense. He has Tim Brown, Ted Dean and Clarence Peaks as running backs. Smith, a 6-foot-5, 2S0-ponnder from Rice Insfitute, will proba bly be used by Detroit at right tackle, a spot vacated by the death early this year by Lucien Reeberg.

The Ortiz faces Lane in 15-round title bout SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (UPI) Lightweight champion Carlos Ortiz of New York, whose training has been hampered by a lack of sparring] partners, faces Kenny Lane tonight at Hiram Bithom Stadium in a scheduled IS-round title fight Lane, who at 32 is five years older than the champion, is a lefty from Muskegon, Mich. In an effort to prepare for Lane's left-handed approach Ortiz hired some Puerto Ricao southpaws. After the champ jarred them a few times, the lefties walked oat of camp and Ortiz completed his training with righthanders. Ortiz, who has won 43 of 47 pro bouts, is a solid 8-5 favorite, over Lane. The challenger has a'career record of 85 victories, 11 losses and one draw. Ortiz has a guarantee of] $62,000 while the challenger wiU take home $12,500. Promoter Bob Leith had anticipated that] the bout would draw about 22.000 because Ortiz 'was bora in Puerto Rico, but dae to lag^g ticket sales he has reduced his estimates to 18,000 with a gate of about $150,000. Ortiz and Lane have split two prerious bouts.

'Perreault came up with a real big game," said coach Alf Pike, whose Blades lost 5-4 Friday night before 11,787 fans at the Sports Arena. Nick MickosK, Seals player- coach, said Perreault "has been big for us in the playoffs—first with Portland (in the semifinals) and now with Los Angeles." The best-of-seven game series for the Lester Patrick Cup switches to San Francisco for the next two contests, on Sunday and Tuesday night The fifth game is set for Wednesday in Los Angeles. Although Perreault got the plaudits, tho Blades' rookie goalie Jack Norris was the "complex" the Seals, defending cup champions, had to overcome to even the playoff stand- mgs. 'Beating Norris will do us a lot of good," said Bud Poile, general manager of the Seals, "It has been a complex with us, just announcing his name in the lineup." Norris beat the Seals 7 times, lost twice and tied with them once during the regular season and beat them 3-1 in the playoff opener. In addition, the Seals broke an eight-game losing streak at the Los Angeles Sports Arena with the victory. The last time they won here was on opening day of the 1963-64 season. Pike was generally satisfied with the Blades, play Friday night San Francisco led 5 • 3 with a little more than four minutes remaining in the game when goals by Willie O'Ree and Leo LaBine made it close. Al Nicholson and team captain Ed Panagabko both rang he buzzer twice for the Seals. Panagabko got assists both times from Mickoski.
