i Miller Mak J ers By JIM HACKLEMAN Associated Press Sports Writer For a guy who came very near (o being a record-breaking loser for baseball's losingest team, Bob Miller has come a long way in a year. He's now a bullpen star for a club driving to a pennant. The 24-year-old right-hander picked up another victory Sunday s the Los Angeles Dodgers boosted their National League lead to 614 games with a 2-1 decision over Milwaukee. Miller came on in the ninth inning after the Braves had pulled into a tie against Sandy Koufax, got the third out, and became a winner when Doug Camilli singled in a Dodger run in the last of the inning. Miller went from starter to full- time reliever two weeks ago and has been a good one. He's allowed just one run in 23 innings over seven games, has run his record to 9-8, and has been credited with Cubs 2-1 on the next to last day of the season. If he had dropped that one, for an 0-13 mark, it would have been a big league record for most defeats by a winless pitcher. The Mete, of course, did make the record book by losing 120 times. The Dodgers picked up ground on San Francisco arid St Louis, still tied for second. Frank Robinson's grand slam homer in the different last I eighth inning powered Cincinnati over the Giants 8-7, and Houston beat the Cardinals 3-1 on "three By The Associated Press W. L. Pet.

It was vastly year, when he lost his first 12 decisions with the New York Mets and only stayed out of the unearned runs and Jim Umbricht's record book by edging the Chicago sharp relief.

Koufax, shooting for his 20th victory and 11th shutout, blanked the Braves on three hits over eight innings. But Eddie Mathews doubled with one out in the ninth and Gene Oliver's two-out double tied it. Miller came on, and after a walk to Dennis Menke, got Roy McMillan to ground out. Lee Walls led off the Dodgers' ninth with a single off Bob Shaw, then Ron Fairly singled and Willie Davis was intentionally passed before Camilli singled in the winner.

U. S. Pat. Off.) LOS ANGELES (UPI) — The Los Angeles Dodgers use Sandy Koufax as the yardstick in measuring pitching talent and by that standard youthful Dick Calmus is far ahead of schedule oi> the road towards stardom. The 19-year-old Calmus at the start of the season was expected to be excess baggage on the Dodger roster where he was forced to remain as a bonus baby. But the youngster with the collar ad profile didn't buy that role and gradually worked his way upward in the Dodgers pitching ranks to the point where he now is being hailed as "another Sandy Koufax.' 1 : The southpaw Koufax and the righthanded youngster both throw bullet-like fast balls. But where Koufax was a wild pitcher until about four years ago, Calmus from the start has displayed astonishing control and pitching poise. Should Be Great "I wish I had been gifted with Calmus' control when I came to the Dodgers," Koufax says. "The kid is a natural. Barring injury, he looks like he can't miss being a great pitcher." Calmus had worked only four innings of mop-up relief when he recorded his first victory, defeating the San Francisco Giants May 12 by working three innings in relief of Podres. "I wasn't scared when I was sent in and looked at all those great hitters," Calmus recalled. "I just tried to think of the backing I had behind me and did my best." It was not until his 16th appearance that Calmus recorded his second win. Taking over for starter Pete Richert in the fifth inning, he worked all the way and gave up only one hit in five innings to get the victory. Loses First Start Although the youngster's debut as a starter Friday night against Milwaukee was not auspicious, the Dodgers said he was understandably nervous and got hit, leaving in the first inning when a liner smacked him below the knee. Although he gave up only two runs, he was charged with his first loss on his first start. "I know most people think I would learn more being in the minors," Dick Calmus says. 'T it I think I've picked up a lot being in the bullpen and getting into major league situations on the mound.

(UPI) The United States may not take the Davis Cup away from Australia this year but at least the nation's tennis players can boast they again hold their own national doubles championship. Young Dennis Ralston and Chuck McKinley before a record Longwood Cricket Club gallery recaptured the title Sunday from Mexicans Rafael Osuna and An- Bears Must Prove They Can Handle Green Bay Packers CHICAGO (AP)-The Chicago Bears may or may not be ready for the 1963 season, but they certainly don't appear ready to be a sure-fire contender for the National Football League title. To earn such a position the Bears should show they can handle the Green Bay Packers, defending champions of the western division and tie entire circuit. And they demonstrated Saturday night in Milwaukee that they can't do that—not yet, anyhow. Chicago lost on the scoreboard, 26 to 7, It lost 0 the yardstick of yards gained, 365 to 214. And it lost on first downs, 24 to 14. The Bears, moreover, completed only nine of 22 pass attempts, while Green Bay made good on 19 in 34 attempts. The Packers made two interceptions. One o£ them was by rookie Dave Robinson, and he ran it back 24 yards for the final Green Bay touchdown. Chicago scored first on a 4- yard pass from Bill Wade to Mike Ditka at the end of a 57-yard drive. Green Bay snapped back with a 19-yard pass from Bart Starr to Ron Kramer to top off a 59-yard offensive. The Packers did all the second half's scoring with touchdowns by Max McGee on a short pass, Robinson's interception and field goals by Jerry Kramer and Gary Kroner. The Bears' next date on the pre-season exhibition schedule is with the St. Louis Cardinals Saturday night in Chicago. Owner- coach George Halas announced Willie Galimore, fleet halfback, will make his first appearance in that game. Galimore had cartilage removed from both knees during the off season.

All four, together with a host of others, moved on t Forest Hills, N.Y., where the U.S. national championships get rolling on Wednesday. Ralston and McKinley collected a strange distinction by winning their rubber match from from the Mexicans since the quartet have been finalists here for the last three years. In victory, they became the first homegrown tandem to win the title twice since veterans Gardnar Mulloy and Billy Talbert aged beyond title competition just 15 years ago. Mulloy and Talbert won the 83-year-old tournament a record four times — a mark McKinley, 22, and Ralston, 21, might well have a shot at if they remain in form. Ironically, while the United States was winning the men's championship for only the sixth time in 18 years, the nation dropped a share of the women's crown for the first time in 27 years. Australians Margaret Smith and Robyn Ebbern became the first of their nation to take the championship by beating five time titlist Darlene Hard of Los Angeles and two-time winner Maria Bueno of Brazil. Ralston and McKinley triumphed in two hours and 40 minutes at 9-7, 4-6, 5-7, 6-3, 11-9 while Smith and Ebbern took their title trophy, 4-6, 10-8, 6-3 in a clash that lasted one hour and 25 minutes. No By JIM BECKER Associated Press Sports Writer "Actually, I try for a no-hitter every game I pitch. That's the way you win, by not letting them hit." That's Al Downing's pitching philosophy, and the 22- year-old New York Yankee left-hander lives by it re- ligously. He h^s flirted with no-hitters, and even perfect games, all season. Twice Downing had gone to the seventh inning before giving up a,hit. Sunday he went to the eighth — an error spoiled a perfect game with two out in the seventh — before Ron Hansen slapped a lead-off single over second base for the first hit. Downing finished with a two-hit 4-0 victory over the Chicago White Sox in the opener of a double header. Elston Howard homered twice. White Sox southpaw Gary Peters won the second game. 2-1 in 12 innings, for his 10th straight and second in a row over the Yankees.

The White Sox are 12 games back; the Orioles 12%. Cleveland beat the Boston Red Sox 2-1 in 15 innings in the second game, after the Red Sox had won the opener 8-3. The Detroit Tigers completed the sweep of a five-game series with Kansas City, 11-5 and 4-3. Washington tripped the Los Angeles Angels 4-1. In the National League, the Los Angeles Dodgers clipped the Milwaukee Braves 2-1, and Cincinnati fedged the San Francisco Giants 8-7 on Frank Robinson's grand slam. Houston beat St. Louis 3-1. That left the Cards and Giants 6% games behind the Dodgers. Chicago beat the New York Mets 3-1 and Philadelphia trimmed Pittsburgh 4-2 in 11 innings. At Yankee Stadium, Downing and Peters, the two young left­ handers, were invincible. Downing ran his record to 10-4, Peters to 15-5. Camilo Pascual won his 17th game with a stout-hearted effort for Minnesota. Pascual pitched out of two bases-loaded spots in the ninth. Red Sox rookie pitcher Bob Heffner lost a 1-0 lead with two out in the 10th inning when Tito Francona homered for the Indians. Then Francona singled the winning run home in the 15th against Dick Radatz. Bill Monbouquette won his 17th in the opener, as Lu Clinton and Gary Geiger homered for the Red Sox. AKRON, Ohio (UPI) — There are two things that Johnny Pott, tlie new champion of the American Golf Classic, likes to do: Win money and beat Arnold Palmer. He did both Sunday. Pott won the $9,000 first-place money in the Classic by beating Palmer by four strokes. He shot an even par 35-35—70 in the final round Sunday over what the touring pros label the toughest golf course they have to play — the 7,185-yard Firestone Country Club layout. For Pott, it was only the fourth tournament victory in his seven years on the tour. "But it was by far my greatest," said the 27-year-old Pott. "When you beat Palmer, you beat the greatest/' Pott, before Sunday, hadn't won a tournament since the Waco Turner in May of 1962. Before that he had won at Dallas and West Palm Reach. 333 in bonus money for doing it figured when he teed off Sunday that * ( I had to shoot a 68 or 69 to win/ 1 His total of 276 for the four rounds tied the tournament record set by Palmer when he won the Classic last year.

Pott's first-place purse increased his year's golfing gold to a total of $24,115, putting him 13th on the list. fourth with a 69 for 282. Then came Nicklaus and British Open champion Bob Charles at 283, followed by Paul Bondeson at 284 and Bobby Nichols at 285. Former PGA champion Jay Hebert, Gary Player, Tony Lema, Bruce Crampton and Harold Kneece finished at 286, while at 287 were Mason Rudolph and Fred Hawkins. READ THE CLASSIFIEDS!
