The results set up the possibility of a pair of pennant-wrapups in major league baseball today The Pirates, although beaten by Milwaukee and Lew Purdcttc 4-2, were assured of no than a tie when the 2nd place St. Ix>uis Cardinals lust to the Chicago Cubs, 5-4. Pittsburgh has 5 games remaining, St. Ixouis 7. .Vny Pirate victory or St. Louis loss the rest of the way closes out the first National I.eague championship for the i*irates in 22 >ears. It’s nearly as conclusive in thi' .vmerican League, where the Yankees have 7 games to play t( 6 for runner-up Chicago and hold a 5^2 game lead The Yanks, running tneir winning streak to 8, beat Boston 6-5 Saturday on Mickey Mantle’s lOth-inning homer and cut their magic number to two when t h e WhitL* Sox lost to Cleveland 6-5 in 12 innings. Third place Baltimore es- raued elimination but stayed 6 games back with 5 remaining, beating Washington 10-9. The best the Orioles could do is tie for the pennant and New York would have to lose all its remaining games for tiiat to happen.

A 4-run burst off starter-loser Bob F'ricnd put it away for the Braves in the 1st. A walk,! Hank .Aaron’s double and Wes Covington’s single produced the first 2 runs and Joe .Adcock’s 25th homer added th< final 2. Double plays chopped off Pirate rallies in the 1st, 6th. 8th and 9th innings. A J-run Cub rally in the 4th beat the Cards. Bob Will.i who had a run-scoring single! in the 4th, led the Chicago attack with 2 hits and 3 RRl.i Don FJlsworth was the winner over Rob Miller. The Yanks, trailing 5-2, tied fne Red Sox in the 8th on 2 walks, a single by Yogi Berra and an infield out, and won, when .Mantle led off the 10th with his 28th homer.

Trainer I* a u 1 By Don Bryant Beef State football fans got to see some prime stock Saturday afternoon at Nebraska’s Memorial Stadium, but the choice herd bore a Minnesota brand. In what was almost a carbon copy of Nebraska’s 1959 win at Minneapolis, the Golden Gophers thrashed the Cornhuskers, 26-14, to knock the Scarlets off the lofty station they held after last week’s upset of Texas. By winning, Minnesota maintained a legend of never losing twice in succession to Nebraska. which now trails m the series, 29-6-2. And the Cornhuskers once again found it Schneider impossible to put two rousing up.'Cts back-to-back.

Team doctors said they w'ould make a check to see if the lime was activated. One theory was that the water brought to the surface by the field cover had caused the problem. Other injuries were numerous. The Gophers haven’t lost at Lincoln since 1939.
