The third-place Milwaukee Braves fell eight games off the pace, losing 4-3 to Cincinnati. In other NL action, the New York Mets whipped the San Francisco Giants 4-2 and the Philadelphia Phillies slugged the Houston Colts 16-0. Musial's first inning homer was all Bob Gibson needed to record his 17th victory. It followed a sin- Brave Prexy Denies Club Will Move CHICAGO (UPI) - Milwaukee Braves president John McHale, denying reports that the club will move, admitted Tuesday, however, that Brave officials will take "a hard look at the situation" when the season is over. McHale said a possible move by the Braves, plagued with attendance problems, "was not discussed at any time" during a meeting of major league executives here this week. "We are not considering any move now. Of course, we can't make any move now," he said. A published report here said the National League club may ask and get permission from club owners to move its franchise from Milwaukee to Atlanta. The report said Atlanta would acquire the club "when and if the Milwaukee Braves move." It would be the second move for the Braves, who came from Boston to Milwaukee in 1953. The club drew a home attendance of 2,215,404 while winning the first of two consecutive pennants in 1957. Last year the club dipped to a low of less than 800,000. "A club that is having attendance problems is always fair game for this type of conjecture," McHale said. "This is the same rumor we answered two or three weeks ago. Nothing has changed since." Frick Plans Realignment In IL, PCL CHICAGO (AP)-With the assurance that each major league baseball team will have a full working agreement with each Triple A club, Commissioner Ford Frick embarked Tuesday on the possible realignment of the International League and the Pacific Coast League. Frick met with 20 major league representatives before announcing his idea of geographic reorganization of the two Triple A leagues. Frick said the object of the meeting was to lay the groundwork for the December minor league meetings in San Diego and the major league meetings in Los Angeles. With the Pacific Coast League stretching from Hawaii to Oklahoma City and the International League extending from Toronto to Jacksonville, Frick said the leagues were operating only for the benefit of the airlines. Rangers Sign Two NEW YORK (UPI) - Defense- man Harry Howell, an 11-year National Hockey League veteran, and center Earl Ingarsfield have signed 1963-64 contracts with the New York Rangers. gle by Dick Groat, just restored to the line-up after an injury, and Was Musial's 11th of the year and 474th of his career. Wally Moon hit a two-run homer in the seventh for the Dodgers to run the score to 4-0. The Pirates got their first run in the bottom of the seventh with the help of an error. Bob Clemente hit a solo homer in the eighth for the Pirates. Hank Aaron hit his 40th and 41st home runs—tops in the majors—for the Braves, but it wasn't enough. Johnny Edwards hom­ ered for the Reds and Gordy Coleman, who also drove in a run with a double, broke a 2-2 tie with a homer in the fourth inning. Carl Willey won his ninth game for the Mets and his third of the year over the Giants. He was working on his fifth shutout in the ninth, but Willie McCovey and Orlando Cepeda ruined it with solo homers. The Giants set a major league mark of their own when they used three Alous in the eighth inning. The Alou brothers, Jesus, Matty and Felipe, went down 1-2-3, the first two as pinch hitters. Felipe was right fielder in the line-up. Don Nottebart had pitched a no- hitter when he met the Phils in Houston last May 17, but he only got three men out Tuesday night. Johnny Callison collected a homer, double and two singles to pace the 17-hit attack for the Phils and the Colts contributed six errors. Chris Short pitched the shutout, a four-hitter.

OLD STORY—There's nothing new about seeing Stan Musial congratulated ns he crosses home plate after hitting a home run. However, in photo above he is shown doing it as a grand­ father. Home run was hit in the first Inning against the Cubs last night with Dick Groat on base. The Cards went-on to win 8-0. UNIFAX Return of Belinsky Causes Little or No Excitement By MIKE RATHET Associated Press Sports Writer Bo Belinsky is back among the Angels. They didn't carry him off the field at Los Angeles with leis dripping from his shoulders Tuesday night, but then he wasn't around when the Angels finally defeated Boston 6-5 in 10 innings. Belinsky left in the ninth inning when the Red Sox started to connect. He allowed eight hits, struck out four and walked none before he left. Belinsky,. who pitched a no-hitter for Los Angeles last year, was farmed out to Hawaii after compiling a 1-7 record, a 6.39 earned run average and a remarkable record for getting into trouble. He won four of five decisions with Hawaii. The Kansas City Athletics knocked off the first-place New York Yankees for the second night in a row, 2-0. Minnesota regained second place as Bob Allison hit two homers in a 5-4 decision over Minnesota, Baltimore knoc.ed Chicago into third by beating the White Sox 2-1 and Detroit and Washington split. The Senators won 9-8 before the Tigers took the nightcap 4-1. Belinsky went into the ninth with a 5-1 lead, having allowed only six hits—one Dick Stuart's 38th homer that gave him the AL lead in that department. But when the first two men bopped Bo for singles, he was relieved. The Red Sox then pushed across four runs to tie it. The Angels won in the 10th when Lee Thomas cracked a bases-loaded single, The Yankees' Ralph Terry, 1614, and Diego Segui of the- A's, were locked in a scoreless battle until the eighth when Charley Lau Players Tell What Makes Spahn One of the Greatest rapped a two-run double. Segui, who had allowed only a fifth- inning single by Elston Howard until the eighth, needed relief help from Ted Bowsfield and John Wyatt before he won it. The . came from behind as Allison slammed a pair of two- run homers, his 34th and 35th of the season. Gerry Arrigo, recently recalled from the minors, shut out the Indians over the final five innings for his first major league victory. Catcher John Orsino collected a single, double and triple as the Orioles edged the White Sox. Milt Pappas pitched the first six innings but left when his arm stiffened and Dick Hall and Stu Miller finished up. Minnie Minoso batted in three runs for the Senators in the opener, including the winning run in the eighth inning. Bubba Phillips homered for the Tigers in the nightcap. Phillips and Norm Cash, who homered for Detroit in the opener, eac' had five hits for the doubleheader. By JOE REICHLER NEW YORK (AP)-There are few ball players whom other ball players talk about. Babe Ruth was one. Ted Williams was another. Among the actives they talk about are Stan Musial, Willie Mays, Mickey Mantle and Warren Spahn. They talk about Spahn's endurance, his coolness under fire, his contempt for hitters. They talk about his pinpoint control, his variety of pitches, his perfect timing, balance and faultless delivery. All. have combined to make the Milwaukee southpaw one of the greatest pitchers of our time. But there are other reasons for his greatness. "It's his concentration," said Musial who probably has engaged in more hand-to-hand duels with the 42-year-old than with any other pitcher. "He never gives you the pitch you are looking for. It's useless to try to outguess him. "I've been hitting against him nearly 18 years and I haven't been able to figure him out yet." "It's his confidence," said Fred Haney, general manager of the Los Angeles Angels who was Spahn's skipper during the Braves pennant winning years. "He walks Cubs Send Lefty Dick Ellsworth Against Pennant-Minded St. Louis CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Cubs will send their star left­ hander to the mound tonight to try and derail the slugging St. Louis Cardinals, who have hammered the Cubs 14-0 the last two nights. Dick Ellsworth (20-8) will oppose southpaw Ray Sadecki (8-8) in the third game of the series at Busch Stadium. Bob Gibson hurled a six-hitter and the Cardinals bashed five Cub pitchers in an 8-0 affair Tuesday night. The shutout came on the.heels of Curt Stamens' six- hitter Monday sight in which the Cardinals roughed up the Cubs 6-0. Gibson (17-8) struck out five and walked three in going the distance and recording his second shutout of the season. He allowed only one runner to reach third base, as did Simmons Monday night. Gibson and Grandpa Stan Musial sent the Redbirds winging to a 5-0 lead in the first two innings off starting pitcher Glen Hobbie (7-10). With one out in the first inning, Dick Groat ripped a single to left ami on tike next pitch Mu­ sial drilled home run No. 11 onto the pavilion roof. The 42-year-old Musial passed out cigars before the game in celebration of his first grandson, born to his son's wife in Fort Riley, Kan., early Tuesday. In the second, Gibson cracked his third home run of the season with two aboard to make the score 5-0. Cubs Manager Bob Kennedy used the run-away game to initiate two rookies to the big leagues. Jim Stewart -and Billy Cowan were used as pinch batters and remained in the game. Lou Brock and Stewart were Gibson's biggest tormentors with two hits each. In Comiskey Park, Johnny Orsino collected a single, double and triple to lead the Baltimore Orioles to a 2-1 victory over the Chicago White Sox. Milt Pappas pitched the first six innings to receive credit for his 15th victory against nine losses. Starting pitcher Frank Baumann (2-1) was the loser. Tonight the White Sox, dropped into third place behind the Minnesota Twins, will send Eddie Fisher (7-8) against the Orioles' Dave McNally 6-7 in the rubber game of the series. out there with the sort of snap that shouts confidence. You can tell he means business; that he's the boss, just by the way he stands on the mound and breathes defiance down the batter's throat." "Spahn is not only the most re markable athlete but the most intelligent man I ever saw," said Bobby Bragan, the current Milwaukee pilot. "I don't know of anyone who likes what he's doing as much as Spahn, unless it's Willie Mays," said Alvin Dark, San Francisco manager. "I've never considered baseball hard work," said Spahn. "I'm fortunate to be engaged in a business which is fun compared to other businesses." Schedules Ace To Pitch in IL Playoffs INDIANAPOLIS (AP)-Indian- aplis Manager Rollie Hemsley has scheduled his ace right-hander, Fritz Ackicy, to pitch tonight, hoping to make it three in a row over the Atlanta Crackers in the battle for the International League Governor's Cup. Cracker Manager Harry Walker will counter with southpaw Harvey Branch. Indianapolis overcame a 6-1 de- icit and beat the Crackers 7-6 Tuesday night for a 2-0 lead in the series. Jim Koranda doubled in two runs in the eighth to put the Indians ahead to stay. BARCLAY'S EXTRAORDINARY BOURBON Bottled when it tastes best Not too soon for flavor. . , not too late for lightness.
