mm. Koufax First 1963 Hurler To Notch Victory No. 20 Sandy Shocked by L. A. Run Spree 20TH VICTORY - Los Angeles Dodger pitcher Sandy Koufax proudly displays ball proclaiming his 20th victory Thursday night in the dressing room after he beat the San Francisco Giants. Dick Ellsworth Winningest Cub Southpaw Since 1920 CHICAGO (AP) - The Chicago Cubs have been a turnabout club this season, but the biggest turnabout of all is the Bruins' slick southpaw, young Dick Ellsworth. Ellsworth, 23, notched his 19th triumph against seven defeats Thursday to become the Cubs' winningest left-hander since Hippo Jim Vaughn took that many in 1920. Ellsworth's 19-7 record compares with his 9-20 last season. The extremely modest Ellsworth, now in his fourth Cub season, was elated by his 2-1 decision over the hot Philadelphia Phils, but only because he came out a sort of purple heart hero in scoring Chicago's first run. Ellsworth sported a bleeding strawberry bruise on his right knee after sliding to the plate for a successful score in the fifth. "Look, that blood came right through the uniform," said Dick. "That doesn 't happen to many pitchers." With 30 Cub games left, Ellsworth possibly has eight or more pitching chances which could give him a shot at the modern club mark of 26 victories by Charley Root in 1927. Certainly, Ellsworth is a lead- pipe cinch to become the first 20- game winner since Hank Wyse won 20 in 1940. But Ellsworth parried questions about a new victory goal in a season which already has produced 68 Cub triumphs, compared with 59 for the entire 1962 campaign. "Like I said from the start of the season," Ellsworth asserted, "all I wanted to do was atone for those 20 losses last year by trying to win 20 this year. "I know it's trite to say it, but I'm still pitching one game at a time and not counting any wins before they're hatched." Ellsworth's six-hit job against Quad-Cities Stay 1 Game Off the Pace By United Press International Quad Cities kept up the pace one game behind Midwest league- leading Clinton Thursday night, but the outlook for the Angels and the rest of the league was bleak. The C-Sox' remaining contests are with Waterloo, which is 13 games off the pace, and Dubuque, in the league basement 18 games behind. Quad Cities, meanwhile, makes a trip to Wisconsin, stopping at Wisconsin Rapids and Fox Cities. The Clinton club held onto its lead Thursday night by whipping Waterloo, 6-1, while the Angels slipped past Burlington, 4-3. Third place Decatur walloped Quincy, 12-2, to send the Jets back into eighth place in the 10 team circuit. Fox Cities took both halves of a doubleheader from Dubuque, 7-0 and 7-5. Wisconsin Rapids defeated Cedar Rapids, 4-1. Tonight's action puts Waterloo at Clinton, Quad Cities at Wisconsin Rapids, Decatur at Burlington, Cedar Rapids at Fox Cities and Dubuque at Quincy. the Phils, who dropped two of three to the Cubs, marked his sixth successive victory and his 10th win in his past 11 decisions. The Cubs, whose Ken Hubbs doubled across the winning run over the Phils in the eighth, today was scheduled to open a three- game set with the Houston Colts. The Cubs' Cal Koonce (1-3) was to go against Chris Zachary (0-1) of Houston. Meanwhile, the White Sox move today from Cleveland to Minnesota where a night encounter was scheduled sending Ray Herbert (11-9) for the Sox against the Twins' Camil Pascual (17-6). In Cleveland Thursday night, Sox southpaw Gary Peters posted his 11th straight triumph and regained his American League strikeout lead in helping the Sox to a 7-2 win over the Indians. Peters, now 16-5, had spotted the Indians to a 2-0 lead in the first inning. But he held them to six hits and struck out eight, pushing his mark to 166. And his two-run homer was part of a five-run Sox rally in the eighth inning that broke up a 2-2 tie. TOP TEN By United Press International NATIONAL LEAGUE Player & Club O. AB R. H. Pet.

Hitting Spree CLEVELAND (UPI) - Tom McCraw is hitting at a .537 clip for the Chicago White Sox these days. The rookie first baseman has collected 22 hits in his last 41 at- bats, raising his average from .202 to .259. By MILTON RICHMAN UPI Sports Writer Sandy Koufax, the majors' first 20-game winner, cause of all those Dodger play-who ^P^orosslng in an 11-1 romp over the Giants. Koufax hadn 't seen so many runs in more than two months. The Dodgers had scored a total of two for him in his previous two tries for his 20th victory. But they did the job up brown before a record crowd of 54,978 at Chavez Ravine Thursday night, breaking out for five runs in the third inning to turn the contest into a "laugher" and increase their National League lead to 6V 2 games over the second-place Giants. "With a big lead like that, I let them hit the ball," said Koufax. Not too much, though. Get Three Hits The Giants were able to collect only three hits and that included Orlando Cepeda's 23rd homer which produced their only run in the second inning. Koufax, whose record now is 20-5, struck out five and walked only one in becoming the first Dodger left-hander to win 20 since Preacher Roe did so in 1951. Southpaw Billy Pierce, who replaced Giant starter Bob Bolin in the second inning, got the side out in that frame but was chased in the third when the Dodgers put together six hits, including a two-run homer by Frank Howard, for five runs. The Dodgers then batted around again in the fifth when they added three more runs on four hits. Ron Fairly drove in four runs with three of the Dodgers' 15 hits while Willie Davis kept things going with two doubles and. a single. Giants Appear Goners The setback just about cooked the Giants' chances even though Alvin Dark refused to look at it that way. "The loss won't have any effect on our club," he said. "We'll be back tomorrow. Before this game, I said we'd have to win five of our last seven games with the Dodgers —now it's five of six." Even should the Giants win the next three games of the current four-game series, however, they still would leave Los Angeles 3'/ 2 games out with less than a month to go. Only two other games were played in the National League Thursday, with the Mets beating the Pirates, 7-4, and the Cubs defeating the Phillies, 2-1. In the American League, the Red Sox shaded the Yankees, 4-3, the Twins trounced the Senators twice, 14-2 and 10-1, the White Sox downed the Indians, 7-2, and the Tigers toppled the Angels, 6-1.

This game was played last Dec. 30, with the Packers coming out on top 16-7. Since then Del has watched 74 "replays" of the title contest on film with no change in results. "It's enough to give a guy an inferiority complex," Shofner said. The film is available on request.

Gridder Dies OKLAHOMA CITY (AP)—A 20- year-old halfback at Cameron Junior College at Lawton, Okla., died Thursday night in an Oklahoma City hospital after suffering a head injury during a football drill. Dave Harmon, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Harmon of Oklahoma City, was injured in a routine blocking drill involving halfbacks and ends. Twins Bomb Washington With Bats By MILTON RICHMAN UPI Sports Writer They sounded the all-clear in Washington today. That means it's okay for everyone to come out now because the Minnesota Twins finally have left. Before departing, however, chey did everything but level the nation's capital with a terrifying bombardment that broke two major league records and tied two others. The Twins caused all that devastation by burying the Washington Senators, 14-2 and 10-1, Thursday in what was innocently advertised as an American League doubleheader. Baby-faced Harmon Killebrew was the Twins' ring-leader with three home runs, raising his season total to 32,-while rookie Jimmie Hall, Vic Power and Bernie Allen hit two apiece. Bob Allison, Rich Rollins and Zorro Versalles settled for one each as Minnesota collected 20 hits in the opener and 15 more in the finale. W. L. Pet. G.B.
