Redfancfs Daily Facts i V^^VP^ 10 -Iocs., April 14,1944 iVj* Angeis, Colts take over for a day By United Prei* IntemaKonii By nightfaU, the elated Los Angeles Angels and Houston Colts are going to be mighty glad they didn't rush right out and spend their World Series checks. The impulse certainly was there because these two clubs don't find themselves in first pl^ce every day. Today they did, though, and what an unusual inflated feeling it gave them. The high-flying Angels and Colts both know the hard, cold facts of life, however. They're painfully aware that all the other major league clubs s\ving into action today, making it a cinch that they'll have to share first place by tonight and mak- ng it debatable whether they'll even be in the first division by the weekend. On Cloud Nine Still, it's strictly cloud nine while it lasts. Bill Rigney's Angels went one up on the rest of the American League by blanking the Senators, 4-0, Monday, on a nifty piece of pitching by Ken McBride in the annual Washington inaugural attended by 40,145, including President Lyndon Johnson and Stan (The Man) Musial who filled in the President on the finer points of the game. Another Johnson, knuckleball er Ken Johnson, was the key man in the National League opener at Cincinnati where he shut out the Reds for eight innings in leading Houston to a 6-3 victory before a crowd of 28,110. Those two games Monday were the appetizers. The main course will be served today when the 16 other major league clubs officially get off tlie mark and take out after those league- leading Angels and Colls. Postponed By Rain The scheduled game between the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox today, in which Yankee Manager Yogi Berra had hoped to make his managerial debut, was postponed because of rain paw \Vhitcy winner last Manager Johnny Pesky intend ;n 1963.

In the National League, two games be played by day and the other two at night. Milwaukee is at San Francisco and Chicago at Pittsburgh in the two daytime contests. Warren Spahn (23-7) will go for the Braves and Juan Marichal (25-8) for the Giants while Larry Jackson (14-18) wiU do the honors for the Cubs and Bob Veale (5-2) for the Pirates. The world champion Dodgers open at home at night against the St Louis Cardinals and JIanager Walt Alston's pitching choice was obvious—southpaw Sandy Koufax, who not only had a 25-5 record last year but also a 2-0 mark in the World Series that had a lot to do with the Yankees' long, long winter. Koufax will be opposed by Ernie Broglio (18-8). Stengel in Philly Casey Stengel will be in Phil adelphia for a night game and he hopes his amazing Mets will be there, too. 01' Case has tabbed Al Jackson (13-17) as his starter in the hope he'll bring the Mets their first open ing game victory in history while Gene Mauch has named Dennis Bennett (9-5) to pitch for the PhilUes. President Johnson, who threw out two balls in Washington Monday instead of one, stayed along with.his personal guest, Musial, until the end and saw tIcBride limit the Senators to one hit, a double by losing pitcher Qaude Osteen in the third inning. Wildness overcame McBride in the seventh but Jujio Navar ro came on and ended the threat by striking out pinch hitter Dick Phillips with the bases fuU. Like the Mets, the "new" dential souvenir. But Johnson, who got his early training on sandlols, was not content, with one throw. While the players still were tumbling over the diamond for the first pitch, he uncorked a hard one. This pitch was pocketed by Washington pitcher Bennie Daniels. With Johnson were Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield, Republican Leader Ever- |ett Dirksen, and Sens. Hubert H. Humphrey, D-Minn., and George A. Smathers, D-Fla. In the fourth inning, duty (called the lawmakers. The stadium loudspeaker blared out that there was a quorum call in the Senate and would the senators return to Capitol Hill. Gathering up their coats, land with a quick goodbye to Johnson, the lawmakers trudged out of the stadium, twisting their necks as they left, in hopes of getting one more glimpse of the ball game.

Joe Adcock, former NL star, doubled home the Angels' first run in the third, smgled during a two-run fifth and had three of the winners' mne hits. Houston's Ken Johnson out dueled Cincinnati's 23-game winner of last season, Jim Maloney, and h^d a 6-0 lead until he tired and gave way to Hal Woodeshick in the nmth. Before departmg, Johnson was tagged for a two-run homer by Bob Skinner.

The Cardinals, runners-up to [the Dodgers for the National League pennant, named Ernie Broglio, 18-8, to oppose Koufax .as the St. iJouis club hoped to [get off to a strong start in an effort to better last year's sec ond place finish. Despite the taxing banquet circle schedule imposed on him as the Cy Young award winner, hero of the Dodgers' World Series sweep and Most Valuable Player in the National'League, Koufax got in more work this spring than any Dodger pitcher except Don Drysdale. The dandy lefthander ap- jpeared in seven game* and worked 37 innings, only five less than Drysdale, and had a 2.68 earned run average although he was credited with only two wins against four losses. Koufax refused to make any predictions on whether he hoped to better his 25-5 record of last season but he said he felt ready to get off to a good start this year. Manager Johnny Keane said the Cardinals would miss the retired Stan Musial and he refused to make any prediction 221, Jack McElroy^ 203, on where he expected St. Louis Famsworth 202, Dale to finish.

Pop! Us kids need itr How Masters looks to an also ran IS ^1 By OSCAR FRALEY UPI Sport* Writer AUGUSTA, Ga. (UPI) - The Masters was over and this was a disappointed Tony Lema talking, almost as if to himself: I wasn't playing well, and yet I was one of the favorites. Some joke. My attitude was completely negative. The course looked impossible. They call them wide fairways at Augusta National but they I looked as narrow as a deer run. The hole seemed about as big as a thimble and the greens everybody else was praising putted for me like a washboard covered with Imo- leum. But it's a big week, you're lucky to be there, so you swallow your pride and try to get out of everybody's way. You put that pride in your back pocket pull out a ball and hit it You hit shots you don't believe you can bit, boUi good and bad. You hit a fabulous long shot around a tree. You dump a simple little wedge shot into the water. You're like a boxer in the I ring for a championship fight who knows he doesn't have a chance. You can run, but there's no place to hide. This is a big part of a golfer's life, this week at the Masters. But you know you have no right on the premises when you dread the moment the man says you're on the tee. Your right hand somehow is down on the steel and your left hand is where your right hand ought to be. When you're in this shape. thinking wrong and playing badly, it's four hours of mental and physical anguish. You watch other guys doing thmgs you know you can do. too, yet you flub it You try to hook the ball and [it duck hooks into the trees. You try to fade the ball and you slice it into great places for parking cars. A guy winds up talking to himself, trying to work himself to a peak mentally and hitting I the shots. But you know inside you didn't have a chance Monday let alone Thursday when they start the first round. You stand on the practice tee and the caddy has to run from left to right to retrieve your shots. He lost 13 pounds during the week chasing your scattered shots. You feel like you should be paying him by the swing. Or that maybe you nee- two caddies, one as a pointer, because you get so deep in the woods it's like a jungle. You figure tbis is the way it must be up the Amazon. So I wound up, somehow, shooting exactly the same score as I did a year ago. Last year it was a muddy track and 287, one under par, was one shot back and good for second place. This year it was only a tie for ninth. It proved one thing to me. jit's much easier to step down than it is to step up. Tliis year I should have stayed in bed. Tony Lema, a tall young Cal- ifomian, turned wearily and walked into the night But he [seemed to have summed up best how it was at the Masters for all of those who followed Arnold Palmer home.
