Red/ands Daily Facts l4-Wed,ipril»,19M Dodgers pick on poor Ken Johnson By United Press tntemat!on<I World champions though they are, the Los Angeles Dodgers are not above belting a good man when he's down. That good man is Ken Johnson of the Houston Colts, who last Thursday became the first pitcher in major league history to lose a nine-inning no-hitter and who Tuesday night turned in another excel lent performance only to bow to the Dodgers, 3-1. The Dodgers, of course, have been having their own troubles vdtb three star pitchers ailing and with various other injuries to important playerss. So they left their sentiment in the clubhouse and carved out a third straight victory that still leaves them in ninth place in the National League five games behind the front-running Phila delphia Phillies. But consider Johnson, the 30- year-old righthander who has allowed a total of three earned runs and eight hits in two con secutive games — and lost them both! Alongside him, the hard luck Roger Craig of 1962 and 1963 looks like the guy who hit the $132,000 twin double at Roosevelt Raceway. Ties Cime Johnson was tapped for a ma in the first inning on Maury Wills' single and Willie Davis' triple but Johnson and the Colts got even in the seventh on a triple by Jerry Grote and Eddie Kasko's squeeze bunt. Then Johnson's game went down the drain as Dick Tracewski tripled to lead off the eight. Wills doubled and Wally Moon followed with a single that sent Maury scooting across the plate. A few moments later Johnson was under a shower in the Houston clubhouse pondering the fortune of pitchers who toil for a team that can't score runs. The PhilUes, so young and vibrant that they can't look back on the iU fortune of others, continued their fast early pace with a 4-2 victory over the Cincinnati Reds;' The St. Louis Cardinals downed the New York Mets, 8-0, and the Milwaukee Braves beat the Pittsburgh Pirates, 7-5, in the other NL games. In the American League Minnesota topped Cleveland, 9 8, Boston scored a 6-4 ll-inning victory over Baltimore, Kansas City defeated Detroit, 5-1, and Los Angeles edged oat Washington, 2-1. Allen Leads Phils Rookie Ritchie Allen had four hits and drove in two runs and pitcher Art Mahaffey hit a key double in his own behalf for] the Phillies, who won their eighth game in 10 starts. Ma haffey doubled and scored on Johnny Callison's smgle to break a 2-2 tie in the seventh and Allen followed with a triple for an icing run. Allen's sixth-inning homer had tied the score for Mahaffey, who won his first game of the season. Ernie BrogUo pitched a five- hitter and didn't permit a Met base-runner to reach third in gaining his second win. Ken Blyer had a homer and two singles and rookie Phil Gagliano, replacing Julian Javier at second base, doubled home two runs in a fonr-nm fifth-inning rally. Met ace Ai Jackson suffered his third loss against one victory. Rookie Jack Smith's four frames of middle-inning relief pitching were rewarded with his first big league victory as the Braves pounded Bob Friend and three successors for, 11 hits. Felipe Alou had three hits, Denis Menke had two and Joe Torre homered for the Braves.

(OTI) Who was the racegoer who held the only ticket on a record twin double payoff *of'$132 ,232T- 80.at Roosevelt Raceway Tuesday night? Track officials determmed that the ticket was sold in the grandstand. And a ticket seller there "thought" he sold it to a woman. 'Maybe the person who bought the ticket lost it or destroyed it by mistake," said another official of the Long Island harness track. At any rate, nobody showed up to claim the winfall before the track closed for the night. The winning combination for the payoff — the biggest in U.S. pari-mutuel history —was Nos. 7-5 and 1-2. It was set up when Sonnie Jim Abbe won the Sandy Koufax's arm Vastly improved' LOS ANGELES (UPI)-Sandy Koufax's arm was "vasUy improved" today, but the star Los Angeles Dodger hurler still will not be able to pitch against the San Francisco Giants this weekend, the team physician said today. Dr. Robert Kerlan handed down the verdict after, the standout southpaw worked out briefly Tuesday. Ramos wins over Pride NORTH HOLLYWOOD (UPI) —Mexican - heavywdght champion Manuel Ramos unleashed a barrage of powerful btows to the head to score a technical knockout over Sammy Pride Tuesday night in the third round at Garden State Arena. Referee George Latka stopped the bout at 1:17 of the third as Pride, a 195 - pounder flrom Phoenix, Ariz., reeled badly. It was the 12th victory and 10th knockout for the unbeaten Ticket worth $732,232 goes unclaimed ai track sixth race at $52.60. Shady Maid ($22.90) captured the sev enth. Meadow Hart ($11.70) won the eighth and Historic Value ($24) survived a four- horse spill to win the ninth and final race of the night. In twin double wagering, a bettor who picks the winners of the sixth and seventh races cashes in that ticket for another on the final two races. Those who pick all four vrin- ners split the pool; and if only one ticket is sold on the winning combination, such as last night, the lucky ticket holder collects the entire pot. The old record payoff for .a twin double was set only a week ago at Gulfstream Park when a married couple, John and Helen McGrady of West Hollywood, Fla., collected $84, 692.20 for a $2 wager. Field of 12 shapes up for Derby LOUISVILLE, Ky. (UPI) -A field of 12 shaped up today for Saturday's running of the $125,000 added Kentucky Derby following a brilliant victory by Hill Rise Tuesday in the $15,000 derby trial There remained the possibility that a few others may join them if rival owners recover in time from the jolt they got when Hill Rise cut loose with a breathtaking run in the final derby race. It firmly established the California colt as the solid favorite in the 90th running of American's racing classic. "It shook me up pretty good, "admitted EUiot Burch who trains Quadrangle, the Wood Memorial winner, for the Rokeby Stable of Paul Mellon.

(UPI)Jack Nicklaus, still rated as the man to beat, opens defense of his crown Thursday in the world's most exclusive golf tournament — the $65,000 Tournament of Champions. Nicklaus and 28 other tournament winners tee off on the long Desert Inn Country Club course in the smaUest and most select field of any tournament on the lucrative tour. Junibo Jack is rated as the 3V4 to 4-1 favorite to repeat as the king, while Masters cham pion Arnold Palmer is 5-1. BiU Casper, an expert at, handling the fast greens that characterize this lay-out is rated at 6-1, followed by Tony Lema at 7-1 and Gary Player at 8-1. The course is in tip-top shape, the fairways narrow, the weather hot and the roughs tough. "But this is one of the best manicured courses we've played on this year," says lit tle Juan (Chi Chi) Rodriguez, who qualified for this tournament by winning events at Denver and San Francisco. The field of 29 Uiis year is the largest in history.

Whittier and two against Occi- dentaL Starting for the UR against Claremont will be Bill Bruns or Gary Sherman in the opener, and Jim Hogan In the nightcap. Hogan has been the mainstay for the Bulldogs all year. The sophomore right-hander has a microscopic ERA of 1.85 in sis games. In 39 innings Hogan has fanned 41 opponents and picked up a 4-2 record. AltogeUier, Uie pitching staff of Hogan, Sherman and Bruns has an ERA of 2.72, compared to the 4.13 sported by pitchers who have faced Redlands. All righUes, Hogan has a 4-2 rec ord; Sherman a 1-0 and Bruns is 1-1. Bulldog hitting is consistent. The team average is .250. A good team for hitting in the clutch, Redlands has more than its share of extra - base hits. Bill Hart, still recovering from a sprained ankle leads the team batting .380. Hart's lame ankle undoubtedly robbed him of at least two hits in the O.xy game. Dayton Dickey is batting .354 and leads the league in rbi's wiUi 13.

Cepedo knocked out with iniured right knee SAN FRANaSCO (UPI) -A ghun Orlando Cepeda commenced the long wait today until next Monday when he undergoes further examination of! an injured right knee that knocked him and his .500 bat ting average out of the San Francisco Giants' lineup. 'The knee b,egan to feel very heavy last night," Cepeda said Tuesday after arriving by plane from Chicago where the Giants are slated to face the Cubs today. "The Dodgers say it will be about two weeks before I play again. I have to stay off it as much as possible. But I'U be going to Uie bafl- park to take heat treatments." Cepeda arrived at the near- deserted airport carrying his ever-present record player. "I feel good in every way except for this knee," he said. Whenever I try to make a quick start, it hurts." He re-aggravated an old injury during the second game of the season when'he was thrown out trying to steal second base against Milwaukee. As a result of the mishap, he went on limited service. 'Then the Giants sent him to New York on Monday where Dr. Harrison M. Laughlin diagnosed the ailment as water on the knee complicated by pulled thigh muscles. "I'm not thinking about the .500 a V e r a g e," Oriando shrugged Tuesday in the airport lounge after posing with one leg propped up for the photograph. "But I was part of a lineup that was supposed to stay together, now I'm out of It and I'm disappointed." Cepeda recalled Uiat he had injured the same knee twice on two previous years. "In 1961 I hurt it when I col- Uded vith (catcher) John Roseboro of the Dodgers," Cepeda said. ,"In 1962 I hurt it again during an exhibition game with Cleveland." Manager Alvin Dark, whose Giants are pre-season picks to win the pennant, said in Chicago that he probably would stick wiUi WiUie McCovey at first base. "Cepeda's got to go home and rest," Dark said. "He's got m- structions to stay off the leg, and I just hope that Monday's examination will be more favorable and that he can get back quicker." Cepeda got six hits in his first seven times at bat this season. Same as last year Not new for Dodgers to be in trouble LOS ANGELES (UPI) -The current troubles of the Los Angeles Dodgers are nothing new and are almost a direct parallel with the situation that faced the club at the same time last year, a check of the records showed today. Optimistic foUowers of the' world's champions were hopeful that by the time May is not too far along, the Dodgers can carry the parallel a step further wiUi tiie same result For itj was in May last year that }^ Angeles started the move tJlit eventually led to the National League pennant and the World Series sweep. Currently the club is plagued by having two of its pitching stars, Sandy Koufax and John Podres, sidelined. A year ago Koufax also was uut of action and Podres from the start of the season imtil May 16 had won only one game. Right now reliefer Eon Per- ranoski and outfielder Tommy Davis are nursing injuries. But last year in the first few weeks of the season star shortstop Maury Wills and Tommy Davis both were injured. True, the Dodgers had a better won and lost record at this time last year when they were 10-11 and were in fifth place vviUi only four games separating them froiV the top spot CurrenUy Los Angeles is Ian- High school in final dual meet Thursday Redlands High track and field team hosts Riverside Poly Bears tomorrow afternoon in Uie final dual meet of the season for the Terriers.

And for the optimistic, there were a number of plus signs t)iat the club did not possess at this time last year. The Dodgers did not have a regular third baseman last season when they tried anyone and everyone at the position. Currently rookie John Werhas has fiUed that gap in capable fashion. Whetiier the Dodgers can make a similar run before the end of the month is in the lap of the gods. But if Koufax and Podres return to action by next week as anticipated, the team's potential is just as great this year as last, if not greater. Troy sluggers down visitors By United Press International Southern California batters smashed 12 hits off three University of California at Santa Barbara pitchers Tuesday in California Intercollegiate Baseball Association game at Los Angeles.

Heart-tugging memories for Arcaro By OSCAR FRALEY UPI Sports Writer NEW YORK (UPI) - This is the time of heart-tugging memo-| ries for Eddie Arcaro. Arcaro, you'll remember, was one of the world's premier jockeys for 26 years. Then m 1961, he stepped eut o£ the irons-into retirement But they run the Kentucky Derby on Saturday and to the UtUe man who won the' rose" run a record five times it always was the biggest one of them alL 'I rode m it- 21 time9 and every one was an experience," he remembers. "Rough? Well, yes. And for many reasons. "First of an, it's the one Uiey all want to win the most so the jocks are more keyed up and nobody is giving anybody else an inch," he smiled. "It's the tops and generally there's a big fiekL Lots of Uiem shotiMnt be on the track and they clutter; the field, so the going can get some sticky." Dapper Eddie won the derby with Lawrin in 1938, when he was 19 years old; and later wiUi Whirlaway in 1941, Hopp Jr. in 1945, Citation in 1948 and Hill Gail in 1952. He also fin-| ished second three times, with Phalanx in 1947, HHI Prince in 1950 and Nashua in 1955. You might think that being beaten with the mighty Nashua would be his greatest derby disappointment but his grimmest moment was when he lost by a head on Phalanx. "He was two or three lengths the best horse," Arcaro insisted. "But it was muddy and he got off dowly. Then at the eighUi pole we hit a hole and tost another length. That was one time, when we came from fifth in the stretch to tose to Jet Pitot by a head, Uiat I vrished the derby distance had been a mile and a quarter and one' stock and Casualty Insurance Company which insures horses and catUe, and is getting a big play from owners of tborough- br^s and trotters, Arcaro re members his first triumph, on Lawrin, as his greatest derby UirilL Maybe it's because it was my first one," he mused. "But on top of that I didn't thmk we had a chance to win. I just wanted to lide in the derby. 'Of course, Lawrin had won jthe Flamingo in Florida that winter," Arcaro, added. "But Stagehand was the best horse and a big fevorite. Then, on the morning of the derby he came up sick and had to be scratched. StiU, we were no better than fourth choice behind Fighting Fox, Bull Lea and Menow. But we caught Menow in the stretch and won by a length. It was really something." Bom in Cincinnati and raised across the river in Newport, more jump." Now president of the Live-JKy., Arcaro started iroridng ooj tiie race track at 13 and "by cheating" started riding a month before he was the required 16 years old. Thus he was 16 when he had his first derby ride on a filly named NeUie Flag in 1935. Arcaro is quietly jealous of his position in the racing world and, having been surpassed i )y Willie Shoemaker as the second leading money winner of all time, .points out that his first derby was a $50,000 event while today it -is worUi $150,000. "Willie won four $100,000 races already this year," Arcaro said ia analyzing the changing times. "But I have no regrets because I've had a helluva wonderful life." No regrets except for wishing that maybe this Saturday when the band plays "My Old Kentucky Home" and they parade to the post for the big race, litUe Eddie will be wishing inside that he was shooting for number six.
