14 Galesburg Register-Moil, Galesburg, lit. Saturday, Sept. 14, 1963 Cards Up to Old Tricks With Spahn By .TOE REICHLEK Associated Press Sports Writer ST. LOUIS (AP) — "I've had good luck against Warren Spahn the last few years," said Ken Boyer, the St. Louis Cardinals' third baseman. He is one of the only two men who can make that statement. The other is grandfather Stan Musial. The two Cards were up to their old tricks against the veteran left­ hander Friday night, as they sparked a firs 1 inning rally off Spahn that led to the 16th victory in the last 17 games for the rampaging Cardinals. The score was 7-0. St. Louis closed to within 2M> games of league-leading Los Angeles. Musial started it with a two-out double. Boyer followed with a homer. The barrage may have come as no great surprise to the great veteran Spahn. Over the years, since they first met on June 16, 1946, Musial has hit Spahn for a .314 average and 14 home runs. And Boyer has been even tougher—since 1955, Ken's first year in the majors, he has hit Spahn for a .339 pace and hit 10 homers, including the big one Friday night. "I couldn't do anything with Spahn when I first came up," Boyer said. "As a youngster I tried to pull him and I just couldn't. I couldn't figure out why at first because he didn't overpower you, and he did- not have too good a curve. But he had the screwball and the change of speeds and uncanny control to go with it. "It wasn't until I decided to go with his pitch, that is, hit the outside pitch to the opposite field that I began to have success with him. Friday night's homer may help silence the jeering of the Cardinal fans. For some odd reason, Boyer has been a target all year,' although he is having what he considers his most productive season in the majors. The booing began the first home game, when Boyer made one of his rare boots. Boyer is at a loss to account for the fan reaction. "Certainly I hear it," he said. •'But I can't afford to let it affect my playing. In fact, I think I bear down that much harder." The winning pitcher was Curt Simmons, who limited the Braves to five hits. In today's game, Bob Gibson (17-8) was to face Milwaukee's Bob Sadowski (5-5). By The Associated Press NATIONAL LEAGUE VV.

Leonard fired a five-under par 67 Friday to go with his first round 66 for a 133 total. Just back of him were two relative unknowns. Bobby Nichols, Corona, Calif., and Ray Floyd, Fayetteville, N. C.

In fact, Casper and Finsterwald were the only two name golfers teeing off today who were five or less strokes off the pace. Missing from today's action was defending champion Jack Nicklaus, now playing out of Tucson, Ariz., who failed to make it under the cutoff point of 147 and thus eliminated himself from a crack at the first place money of $5400. Nicklaus, who soared to 77 in the opening round, pared his score down to 72 Friday, but his two-day total was still two over the cutoff mark. Leonard moved into the lead Friday after having shared the opening round lead with Nichols, BUBBLING OVER—Friday the 13th was not unlucky for the New York Yankees as they clinched their 28th American League pennant by beating the Minnesota Twins. In the dressing room after the game celebrants Jim Bouton (left) and John Blanchard (right) pour champagne on the head of Joe Pepitone. Bouton hurled a 2-0 shutout and Blanchard and Pepitone hit homers. UNIFAX Dodgers Not Worried About Cards PHILADELPHIA (AP) - If the Los Angeles Dodgers are looking back over their shoulders in remembrance of last year's collapse they're hiding their feelings pretty well. Take Friday night for example. The Dodgers had just split a twi-night doubleheader with the Philadelphia Phillies and had another half game chopped off their dwindling National League lead by the on-rushing St. Louis Cardinals, who now are just 2 x h games back. You would expect to find a band of grim faced athletes in the Los Angeles clubhouse. Certainly the ghost of the 1962 blowup might be expected to haunt them. But it isn't so, at least outwardly anyway. The Dodgers, with the possible exception of shortstop Maury Wills, whose ninth inning error cost them the first game, were in high spirits. They dug in to a buffet spread out on a table. Manager Walt Alston, renown for his economy of words, was very talkative. He seemed relaxed, and was amiable. Asked about the tremendous surge of the Cards, who beat Milwaukee and Warren Spahn Friday night, Alston said: "There's not a thing we can do about the Cards until wo get there." Alston pointed out that while St. Louis was winning 16 of 17 games, they had managed to gain only three games. Rookie Stars as BggH Cubs Snap Skein CHICAGO (AP)—A young man named John Boccabella has stirred new interest in the quarters of the Chicago Cubs. Boccabella, who replaced ailing Ernie ^nnks at first bnse crashed a game - winning single in the eifjhth inning Friday to give the Chicago Cubs a 3-2 victory over CinHnnnti. The 22-year-old first baseman, destined to replace Banks also had a double and a walk as he made his debut before the home crowd. But the big hit was his siimle in (he niehlh to give the Cubs a victory and keep alive their chances of a first division finish. Cincinnati took a 1-0 lead but Billy Williams tied it with a home run in the third. The Cubs went ahead 2-1 in the fifth on Williams' sacrifice fly only to have Cincinnati tie it in the seventh on doubles by Eddie Kasko and Pete Rose. Boccabello ended the struggle in the eighth. The Cubs were to send CaJ Koonce (1-5) against Cincinnati's Jim O'Toole (17-13) Saturday. The Chicago White Sox defeated Washington 5-2 behind Ray Herbert, who s"o r ed his 12th victory against 10 defeats. Herbert helped his own cause when he doubled home two runs in a four- run, sixth-inning rally. Gary Peters (18-6) will try to enhance his bid for rookie of the year honors when he goes against Washington tonight. Dallas Cowboys Talk Big As NFL Season Gets Started Marilynn Leads Women's Open EUGENE, Ore. (UPI) - Mar ilynn Smith, Tequesta, Fla., carried a one-stroke lead into the third round of the Eugene Worn en's Open golf tournament today She fired a four-under-par 70 Friday for 144 after 36 holes in the four-day, 72-hole tourney. First day leader Mickey Wright of Dallas, Tex., and Kathy Whit worth of Jal, N. M., had 74 and 72, respectively, to go into a tie for second place at 145. Floyd and Ken Still, Tacoma, Wash.

Dallas and Detroit are favored in the openers, the improving Cowboys by a toirhdown and the tough Lions by two. The Cowhovs, Hie only pro team in town since the Texans moved their American Football League 1 franchise to Kansas City, are rated one of the most 'ikelv contenders for the New York Giants' Eastern Division crown. The Cardinals never have lost to the Cowboys, but they will be without the services of their top runner, John David Crow, out with a knee injury, and corner- back Bi'l Sfacey, out with a fractured cheekbone. The Rams, who did a lot of experimenting with their offense, managed onlv t>"' viVoi-ips in the exhibitions, and could have trouble with Detroit's rock-hard defense, led by linebacker Joe Schmidt.

Nothin As Yankees Win Pennant By JIM BECKER Associated Press Sports Writer Next year, for a novelty, the New York Yankees are going to clinch the American League pennant while standing under a stepladder, throwing their bats on the bed, and breaking mirrors, as black cats cross their paths. j That will eliminate the other, superstitions. They took care of Friday the, 13th when they clinched their fourth straight pennant, eighth in nine years, 13th in 15 and 28th since the first one in 1921. The clincher came against Minnesota, 2-0. Jim Bouton pitched the victory, his 20th. The Twins' ace, Camilo Pascual, had only one bad inning, the fourth, when Joe Pepitone and, Johnny Blanchard hit homers, but it was enough. The Twins fell into a second- place tie with the Chicago White Sox, who whipped the Washington Senators 5-2. They are 14 games behind with 13 to play. Detroit tightened its grip on fifth place with a 3-2 decision over Baltimore, Boston beat the Kansas City Athletics 7-3 and Cleveland edged the Los Angeles Angels 7-6 in 12 innings on Joe Adcock's homer. In the National League, the St. Louis Cardinals blasted Milwaukee 7-0 while the Los Angeles Dodgers split a doubleheader with the Philadelphia Phillies, losing 3-2 and winning 2-1. Pittsburgh took San Francisco 5-4 in 13 innings, the Chicago Cubs topped Cincinnati 3-2 and Houston edged the New York Mets 1-0. Bouton pitched a six-hitter and joined Whitey Ford in the 20- game victory ranks. Ford has 22. They are the only two 20-game winners in the league. The shutout was Bouton's sixth, tying him with Chicago's Ray Herbert for the most in the AL. The young right-hander had trouble only in the eighth, when the Twins loaded the bases on a single and two walks. He got Harmon Killebrew on a grounder to end the threat. Pascual failed for the third time in his quest for No. 19. Putting Will Be Factor in U.S. Amateur Golf Tourney DES MOINES, Iowa fAP)-The smart people in the gallery for the 36-hole title match of the U.S. Amateur golf championship will park themselves at the green today and wait for Deane Beman and Dick Sikes. That's where the 63rd national championship will be decided between the two young fellows who make a putter their greatest weapon. From tee to green, they are little more than average, ly that isn't decided on the greens," Beman, of Bethesda, Md. said after his 5 and 4 victory in the semifinals over the California covpoke, George Archer. "But it's especially true here where the Mays,'Giants 34; Cepeda, Giants 30; Howard, Dodgers 26.

I'd have been nowhere here if I hadn't been putting." "I don't know how I 'll play but I know this," said Sikes, who disposed of former champion Charlie Coe of Oklahoma City, 2 and 1. "If I don't putt better than I did in the afternoon against Charlie, this match won't last long. I was horrible." Beman, 25, who won this championship in 1960, had 11 one-putt greens Friday at the 6,896-yard, par 36-36—72 Wakonda Club. When it looked like he might be losing his momentum after building a huge early lead, he banged in successive putts of 27, 18 and 17 feet. Sikes, the NCAA champion from Arkansas who has a fantastic 45-6 record in match play competition the last three years, lost his touch in the afternoon sun. But he beat the veteran Coe, 1949 and 1958 amateur champ, with one magnificent stretch in the morning. Sikes, who has won the National Public Links championship twice, is well aware his Walker Cup and Americas Cup teammate is a tough opponent. "This tournament is tougher than the Public Links because you have about eight more real good players in it," he said. Pointing to Beman sitting next to him, he said: "This is one of the eight."
