THE AMAZING Giants took Over undisputed possession of first place for a few hours Saturday in the pennant race and then settled for a deadlock as the Dodgn also came through with a victory in a night game. The Giants blanked Boston's Braves 3 - 0 at windswept Braves Field as Sal Maglie spun a brilliant five hitter for his 23rd victory of the season. The victory, New York's sixth straight and its 36th in the last 43 games, climaxed an irrepressi - sible surge that began Aug. 12 when they trailed Brooklyn by 13':; games It marked the first time the Giants ever had first place all to themselves. But it lasted only until the Dodgers whipped the Phillies 5 - 0 under the lights at Philadelphia. The Giants solved Southpaw Warm Spahn for only five hits in eight innings, but broke through for single tallies in the second ad fifth innings to whip the crafty lefthander for the sixth time this year. They added an insurance run against Reliefer Vern Bickford in the ninth. It was Spahn's 14th defeat against. 22 wins. THE BRAVES staged OBly one other real scoring threat.

Maglie then got Cooper and Marshall to tap weakly to First Baseman Whitey Lockman. Cooper bounced into a force play and Marshall raised a soft pop to end the game. Maglie'a record la now 23 - 6. the best mark racked up by a Giant pitcher since Carl Hubbell registered a 26 - 6 ligure in 1936. He is the Htst 23 - game winner in the majors.
