Qatesburg Register-Mail J GALESBURG, ILL., TUESDAY, SEPT. 17, 1963 Resen ts By MIKE RATHET Associated Press Sports Writer "They've just got to fold," PAGE 13 1 1 said Leo Durocher, "they've been so hot, they've just got to." Is the outspoken Los An­ geles conch right, or can the St. Louis Cardinals bounce back front a 34 defeat by the National League-leading Dodgers Monday night in the opener of the three* game showdown that may decide the pennant winner? That was the question today as the Cardinals made ready for round No. 2—against Dodger ace Sandy Koufax, 23-5. Starting for Louis 15-7. Leo made his comment the with the Cardinals game, heading into the series at home Ch ke 9 Cha rge By JOE REICHLER Associated Press Snorts Writer ST. LOUIS, (AP) — The Los Angeles Dodgers hoped today they had finally shoved the "choke" charge down the throats of their most caustic critics. "They've been accusing us of choking. Now we'll see what happens. The shoe is on the other foot." These words were uttered by Don Drysdale, Los Angeles' right-handed ace, following the Dodgers 1 vital 3-1 triumph over St. Louis Monday night that widened their first-place lead to two terribly big games over the Cardinals. "Lew Burdette (St. Louis veteran pitcher) was giving us the business all through the game," add : ed the 6-foot-6 Drysdale. "He was clutching his throat while sitting in the dugout. All that did was to make our guys more determined." Burdette's obvious reference to choking apparently did not affect Podres who southpaw hurled Johnny masterful three-hitter through eight innings before tiring and giving way to Ron Perrano- ski. The peerless bullpen specialist mopped up in the ninth. It was his 64th relief appearance and 18th save. The Dodgers got to St. Louis Maris May Not Play In Series NEW (UPI) Roger Maris may he through for the season and there, is even some question whether he will be ready to play'in the World Series.

"Maris has a sacroiliac condition arid he's in real pain," said Houk. "I Ralph have no idea when he'll be ready to play." i Maris has been sidelined by one injury or another for most of the season. He missed the first two weeks of the season because of a pulled hamstring muscle in his left leg, missed three more weeks in July because of abdominal surgery, and was out most of August because of an injury to his left hand. He has appeared in only 85 of the Yankees' 152 games and has with a .265 batting average homers and 50 runs batted in. 22 starter Ernie Broglio and southpaw reliever Bobby Shantz for eight hits including three by Willie Davis and two by Maury Wills. The two stole four bases and scored two of the three Dodger runs. The pressure now undoubtedly is on the Cardinals who face the tonight of beating the best in the added hurdle Sandy Koufax, business. Even if they do and it UD with another follow night's victory in finale, the up Wednesday Dodgers still would leave St. Louis in first place by percentage points. Furthermore, the league leaders will have the advantage of playing all their nine remaining games at home, three against the last-place New York Mets, three against eighth-place Pittsburgh and three against fifth-place Philadelphia. The Cards will play the Cincinnati Reds five games and the Chicago Cubs two, foui on the road. Curt Simmons, the rejuvenated veteran, will oppose Koufax, who owns a 23-5 record that includes three straight triumphs against the Cardinals. Simmons, years older than Koufax, 27, is pitching the best ball of his career. He has won 15 games, the last three by shutouts. It was only the second loss in the last 21 games for the Cards PENNANT FEVER—Long lines formed early to get tickets for the Cardinal-Dodger baseball who trailed the Dodgers by seven game Monday night at Busch Stadium in St. sames insf fwn W^AITC acm Tf Louis. The 3 -1 win by Los Angeles last night may games just two weeks ago. It also ended a 10-game winning streak. "This was the 14th victory in our last 20 games," said Drysdale. "So how can anyone say we're choking up? We've played great ball, but they were phenomenal. Even phenoms can lose, too." have cooled off fans a bit but a similar crowd is expected for the second game of a three game series tonight. UN1FAX Lee Suffers Back Inju MILWAUKEE (UPI) ^ Maye, Milwaukee Braves' outfielder, is reported suffering from a wrenched back and may be out for the remainder of the National League season. Maye has been admitted to Milwaukee Hospital for treatment. Cubs By United Press International The Cubs have found it tough to score runs for quite a while —and now they're finding it almost as hard to get base hits. They nicked Pittsburgh's Bob and Washington for the second Veale for only two singles in day in a row. Monday's 1-0 loss as Larry Jackson's fine eight - hitter trickled helplessly down the drain. To top it all, the winning run winner, was unearned. Veale sot down the first 13 bat Kenny Hubbs muffed Roberto ters he faced, allowed no one past Clemente's leadoff grounder in the last of the ninth, and after Clemente was sacrificed to second, Bill Mazeroski rapped a game-ending single to center. Rain washed out the White Sox The Cubs made bullpenner Veale look more like a 20-game Try to Restore Golden Days For Braves in Milwaukee SHOWERS TOMORROW Time to Insulate WHITE'S PHONE 342-0815 MILWAUKEE (UPI) — A legal method existed today for Milwaukee to keep the Braves if it comes to a court fight, but a group of business and civic leaders were also at work to restore the "golden days" of the 1950s for the team's new owners in a spirit of brotherly love. The recent rumors that the Chi* cago syndicate which purchased ; Spahn, said it was "unfortunate Garages 30 PAY SPECIAL 2 CAR GARAGE ERECTED BULLOCK '1070,00 NO MONEY DOWN F.H.A, FINANCING 5 YEARS TO PAY r $21.50 PER MONTH the Braves last fall might move the club because of sagging attendance here and the assurance of a better radio-television market elsewhere caused deep concern in the city which first pumped out its chest due to major league pride when the franchise came here from Boston in 1953. Jt has even caused Gov. John Reynolds to threaten a congressional investigation. Chairman Eugene Grobschmidt of the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors publicly reviewed the contract the new owners have for the use of County Stadium which obligates the team to play all of its home games there at least through the 1965 season. "We can take this to court and ill-advised" for the governor to make the threat. He said the group has been at work for many weeks — even before rumors began — to restore the Braves' confidence in Milwaukee and the fans' confidence in the Braves. The Spahn tribute, the first he has ever had in Milwaukee, is certain to attract more than 30,000 fans to the Braves' game against the San Francisco Giants. This would be the biggest crowd of the year. the first base and didn't give up a hit until the seventh. And that first hit was pretty scratchy—a Billy Williams' bad- hop grounder off Dick Schofield's glove. Jim Stewart singled cleanly to center with two out in the ninth to scatter Veale's thoughts of the no-tatter-that-might-have-been. Jackson suffered his 16th loss against 14 victories. The White Sox, holding to second place by one game over Minnesota, come home tonight to meet Boston. Eddie Fisher (8-8) will work against the Red Sox' Bob Heffner (4-7). The Cubs send Bob Buhl (9-13) and Glen Hobbie (7-10) or Cal Koonce (1-6) against Pittsburgh's Bob Friend (17-15) and Joe Gibbon (5-10) in a twi-night Forbes Field. at During Braves' first 10 if Being Built necessary, But the it Grobschmidt said. years in Milwaukee they had an annual average attendance of 1.7 million, a major league record. But from the higher mark of well over 2 million in 1957 the attend- a nee fell to less than 800,000 last year.
