Dodgers Have Two Nominees For Pitcher of Year Award Perranoski Proves Value To L.A. Club Once Again By FRED DOWN UPI Sports Writer If the Los Angeles Dodgers had their way, there would be two Cy Young pitcher-of-the-year awards for the 1963 season — one for Sandy Koufax and one for Ron Perranoski. Brilliant as the 24-game-winning, 11-shutout and 288-strikeout Koufax has been, the Dodgers could not possibly be on the Milwaukee 'Miracle 1 ' Ends MILWAUKEE (AP)-The Milwaukee Braves' "miracle" is faced with a "bust" ending and community leaders are feeling the pinch of a shoe on the wrong foot. Eleven years ago, Milwaukee lured the Braves from Boston by presenting owner Lou Perini an ultimatum: Move or we'll get an other club. Now Milwaukee is threatened with loss of its major league baseball franchise. A syndicate of young businessmen, headed by Bill Bartholomay, purchased the Braves from Perini for $5.5 million last fall. Although financially independent as individuals, the new owners borrowed most of the purchase money. Now financial pressure has been applied on Bartholomay and his partners. As Milwaukee attendance dwindles, they are faced with a tremendous decision. Other cities, especially Atlanta and San Diego, are making fabulous offers to get the Braves. The Braves were welcomed with open arms when they came to Milwaukee. Players and club officials were showered with gifts and WARM TOMORROW Time to Insulate WHITE'S PHONE 342-0815 hailed by baseball fans hungry for major league status. The Braves drew 1,826,937 fans in their first season at County Stadium. They attracted more than two million in each of the next four years, hitting 2,215,004 while winning the National League pennant in 1957. Milwaukee repeated as league champion in 1958, but attendance slipped to 1,971.101. Home turnouts have fallen off ever since. Last year only 766,927 paid admissions were recorded and, with only five home dates left this season, the count is 30,000 behind that low total. . Bartholomay says he can't "imagine" the Braves playing outside Milwaukee. John McHale, club president and general manager as well as an owner, says only that any decision must be made by the board of directors. Meanwhile, reports persist that the Braves already are committed to Atlanta for the opening of the 1964 season. The Braves officially say that no commitment has been made. McHale met with county executive John Doyne for an hour and a half Wednesday. McHale said the meeting was merely to provide Doyne information on what the Braves need to "break even" in Milwaukee.

The six-foot, 180-pound left­ hander whose chief stock in trade is a sharp-breaking curveball demonstrated his value again Wednesday night when he shut out the St. Louis Cardinals for the final six innings of the Dodgers climactic 6-5, 13-inning triumph The victory Wednesday night raised Perranoski's season record to 16-3 and his six shutout innings reduced his earned run average to 1.74. Both his won-lost percentage and his e.r.a. are super! or to Koufax* and he has appeared in a league-leading total of 65 games. Perranoski's performance in the big game Wednesday night was typical: three hits, two walks and three strikeouts in six in nings. He was in one serious jam — when the Cardinals filled the bases with one out in the 10th —but he pitched out of it with out allowing a run. Winning Run Unearned With Perranoski holding the fort it was a question of when the Dodgers would catch up to Lew Burdette — which they final ly did in the 13th when Willie Davis' single, Julian Javier's er ror, a deliberate walk and Maury Wills' infield out pushed over an unearned but decisive run. The Milwaukee Braves beat the San Francisco Giants, 6-4, the Chicago Cubs edged but the Pittsburgh Pirates, 2-1,. the Houston Colts downed the Cincinnati Reds, 8-4, and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the New York Mets, 5-1, in other NL action. In the American League, Minnesota routed Detroit, 10^0. Baltimore defeated Los Angeles, 3-1 and 7-5, Chicago downed Boston, 8-3 and 4-3, and Kansas City nipped Washington, 5-4. The Braves snapped an eight- game losing,, streak with three eighth-inning runs with the aid of Roy McMillan's two-run double and Ty Cline's run-producing single. Willie Mays hit his 36th homer for the Giants. Hits First Homer Rookie Bill Cowan hit his first big league homer with Ron Santo aboard in the ninth inning to give Cub reliever Don Elston his fourth win. Bob Bailey's first-inning homer produced the Pirates' run. John Weekly drove in four runs with a homer, double and single for the Colts, who scored five runs in the last two innings to overcome a 4-3 deficit. Jim Maloney struck out batters to set a club season mark of 240 but suffered his seventh loss against 22 victories for Cincinnati. Chris Short scattered nine hits to win his eighth game for the Phillies behind an eight-hit attack that included two hits each by Tony Taylor and Clay Dalrymple. It was the Mets' last game at the Polo Grounds, where they suffered 105 losses in two years. Jim Hickman homered for New York. By The Associated Press NATIONAL LEAGUE W. L. Pet. G.B.

Patterson Looks For Opponent in Comeback Bout STOCKHOLM, Sweden (UPD— Swedish promoter Edwin Ahlqvist announced today he is looking for a "good opponent" to fight ex- heavyweight champion Floyd Patterson in Floyd's first comeback bout" in Stockholm Jan. 6. It will be Patterson's initial fight since his repeat first-round knockout by champion Sonny Liston at Las Vegas, Nev., July 22. The scheduled 10-round bout will be staged in Stockholm's huge ice stadium, and it will be the first of at least three European fights for Floyd, the promoter said. Patterson's other opponents are expected to be Karl Mildcrberger in Berlin and Henry Cooper in London. U. S. Team Defeated By British DALMAHOY, Scotland fTJPP- Dave Ragart and Billy Maxwell two slightly deflated members of the United States Ryder Cup team, led five other Yanks in ac tion today in the $22,400 Senior Service Golf Tournament. The 72-hole event on the 6,66,1 yard, par-71 Dalmahoy course should provide Rngan and Maxwell with a chance to regain some of the prestige they lost in Wednesday's "Little Ryder Cup" matches on the same links. Maxwell, of Las Vegas, Nov., and Ragan, who plays out of Orlando, Fla., suffered bad beatings as a team of British pros upset a makeshift U.S. squad by a total of six holes. Neil Coles, a chunky Englishman who already has been named to the British Ryder Cup team will meet the U.S. at Atlanta next month, overpowered Ragan, 7-up. Scotland's Eric Brown turned back Maxwell, 4-up. The victories scored by Coles and Brown were decisive for the British, who dropped two of the three foursome matches in the morning but then won five of the seven singles in the afternoon. Jacky Ctipit of Corona, Calif., John Barnum of Belmont, Mich., Doug Sanders of Ojai, Calif., Earl Stewart Jr. of Dallas, Tex., and Bob Rosburg of Portland, Ore., were the other Yanks entered in the field in 130 in the Senior Service tournament. The tournament carries a winner's purse of $5,600 and also features two $14,000 holc- in-one contests. Yesterday's Stars By The Associated Press PITCHING — Ron Perranoski, Dodgers, pitched scoreless three- hit ball over the final six innings, getting 16th victory in 6-5, 13-inning triumph over St. Louis that dropped second-placo Cardinals four games behind National League-leading Los Angeles. BATTING — Dick Nen, Dodgers made first major league hit a homer in ninth inning that pulled Los Angeles into 5-5 tic against St. Louis. ^(jalesburg Regisler -MafI GALESBURG, ILL., THURSDAY, SEPT. 19, 1963 PAGE 15 Sox, Cubs Notch Victories as Rookies Sparkle READ THE WANT ADS! CHICAGO (AP)—When a team isn't in the pennant fight, about all fans can do is look forward to next year—and some youngsters for Chicago's major league teams have given the hot stove league some early fuel. Rookie Gary Peters won his 19th game, rookie Pete Ward belted his 21st and 22nd home runs, rookio Billy Cowan hit his first major league home run and rookio Bruce Howard received credit for his second major league victory as the Chicago White Sox won a twi-night clou- bleheador and the Chicago Cubs won a single game. Peters (19-6) and Howard (2-0) used home runs by Ward and Floyd Robinson in running the White Sox winning streak to six with 8-3 and 4-3 victories over the Boston Red Sox at Comiskey Park. In the first game, Robinson and Ward hit home runs and the Sox broke the game open with four runs in the eighth inning. Howard was pitching in relief of starter Ray Herbert. Jim Brosnan pitched tho final inning. The two first year men battling for Rookie of tho Year honors carried the Sox to the second game triumph. Peters went the distance and drilled two singles, running his batting average to .266. Tho 26-ycar-old left-hander is attempting to become tho first rookie since 1954 to win 20 games. Ward, Peters' chief competitor for rookie honors, smashed an insidc-thc-park home run. The double victory gave the second-placo White Sox a W* game lead over third-placo Minnesota. New York has already clinched the American Leagu« pennant. The White Sox are idle today. In Pittsburgh, rookie outfielder Billy Cowan hit his first majof league home run with two out irt the ninth inning—a two-run belt —to give the Cubs a 2-1 victory over the Pirates. Left-hander Joe Gibbon held a 1-0 lead going into the ninth and seemingly had the game sewed up. But Ron Santo walked and Cowan followed with his blast. Relief hurler Don Elston (4-1) received credit for the win. The Pirates took a 1-0 lead when Bob Bailey led off the first inning with a home run. The Cubs are idle today, as the National League takes a day off.
