M inoso Stymies N ational Bid; By JOE REICHLER ST. LOUIS (iB-Chlcago's Min- nl« Minoso and Detroit's Jim 8Un- fling and Al Kaline were singled out today as the 1957 Ajl-Star Game heroes, but some critics attributed the American League's 6-5 victory Tuesday to good breaks, poor National League base running and Casey Stengel luck. Each side scored three times in the ninth inning. A fine throw and catch by Minoso preserved the American's second triumph in the last eight years and Stengel's second success in seven All-Star games. Minoso 's double in the top! of the ninth drove in Kaline with' theL winning run. Second -Gueeslng Why did. National League Manager Walter Alston decide to let Milwaukee's Eddie Mathews swing away in the ninth inning? The potential tying runs were on dfccond and first, and with nobody out, strategy cried for a bunt. Why didn't Cincinnati's Gus Bell step at second on Chicago Cub Ernie Banks' one-out run-Sqoring single in the ninth which cut the American's lead to 6-5? Bell tried to advance to third and was an easy out on Minoso's throw to Boston's Frank "Mahtane, Why didn't Cincinnati's Frank Robinson, who had opened the National's fifth with a single, run to second on Mathews' apparent line drive hit to right Held? Instead, Robinson retreated after going halfway and was thrown out at second by Kaline, who made a one-handed stab of the ball on the first bounce. Wanted Long Ball "I thought about having Mathews bunt," Alston said. "But Times Herald, Cirroll, Iowa Wednesday, July 10, JM7 Eddie has good power and is a left- handed pull hitter. With that short right field porch an inviting' target I wanted to give him a chance to hit that long one for us." "As for fell, I think he did the right thing. In fact, I was glad to see him trying for third, Ha wan£ ed that tying run en third with only one out. Gus is a good base runner. He thought he had a ohahee end he gambled. You can't sit and wait in this game. It took a perfect get him and Minoso made it "About' Robinson, I can't see hew anyone cjn criticize htm. Maybe the'fans up in the stands had a better view but we on the field couldn't tell whether Kaline caught M^thewa' Uner or not" Bell told Newsmen in the dressing room., that he thought he wa« safe at third. ; v • Mad Chance "I thought I had a good chance to Make it whan Maltone slewed up Banks' hit," he said. "I would never have run had ha not touched the ball. Minoso played it perfectly and got off a quick throw. I thought I made it but maybe I didn't." Ironically, the best pitcher of the day was Bunning, whom Casey nominated to start only becjwia Cleveland's Early Wynn, hie prigi* pal choice, had been used Sunday, Bunning hurled'three perfect innings, retiring nine batters in succession as Stengel's orew built up a'3-0 lead against Philadelphia's Curt Simmons. Lees also kept the National League sluggers from scoring during the next three innings while the American Leaguers increased their lead to 3-0 In the sixth- after Burdette had Stopped them in the third, fourth and fifth. Wjrin illi Fierce Spelled ft wail while Wynn was on th* mound that the National Leaguers first scared, iing 1 as by New York's Willie Mays and Cincinnati's Ed Bailey and a pinch hit double by Bell reduced thj AL'a lead to 3-2 in the seventh.

(JV-The fate of a proposed Archie Moore- Tony Anthony fight for,the world light heavyweight championship in Los Angeles apparently rested today on a bid by singer-actor Frank Sinatra to promote the pout. ' The California Athletic Commis* sion called a special meeting, here, today to: Approve or reject the 15-round match Sept. U at Gilmore Field, home of the Hollywood baseball elub. Approve or reject a request for « promoter's license in the name of Sinatra. Agree on Terms * Tha principals agreed on terms Tuesday. Opposition to the fight quickly bubbled to the surface, with at least three established cluba or promoters slated to appear before the commission, Ready to object, not so much to tha fight as to the promoter's license, were matchmaker Jack Leonard and two members of the Hollywood Legion Stadium board of directere» Underwood and Claude Cummlngs; promoter Cal Eaton and his wife, Aileen, of the Olympic Auditorium in Los Angeles, and Bennie Ford, San Francisco promoter. Jules Covey, attorney and 8 former chairman of the state boxing beard, was here to represent Sinatra and his business manager, Henry (Hank) Sanjcola. Sanicola la a devoted fight fan and with Sinatra owns a "piece" of lightweight Cisco Andrade. "We dont particularly want DM fight ourselves," Leonard said before leaving Hollywood. "We might take it if we had to. "But we object to a rich guy like Sinatra coming in on* a one- shot deal. We certainly couldn't afford to make Moore an offer of 4100.000. It lent worth that money. "But a man like Sinatra can, and ha leees, he can just write it off fa taxes. We are in this business for our bread and butter.

Philadel- phla was 1445, with Cincinnati— in first place by a game a month ago^-and Brooklyn both 13-16.

Yogi Berra, the Yankees catcher, collected his first All-Star RBI in nine games when he singled in Moose Skowron in the sixth. George Kell of Baltimore called Williams the "greatest hitter I saw" hut added "that eve* Ted will admit that Stan Musial is a better all-around player."

"I gave them everything, fast balls, sliders, and I mixed them up too." That was winning pitcher Jim Bunning of Detroit speaking after three perfect innings. Ken Smith, secretary of the Baseball Writers Assn, of America and a writer for the New York Mirror, was stunned when a foul pop hit him on the shoulder during batting practice, Reporters and photographers, Frick's order, swarmed close to the batting cage before the game. Ted Williams greeted one scribe stonily with: "Are you guys supposed to be this close to the batting cage?" Frick, in issuing the order, was trying to prevent box seat patrons from missing out on seeing the batting practice.

The former champs did fancy jobs in the 18-hole qualifying r«jund Tuesday. Shaky start Rod Bliss of Des Moines, off to a shaky start as he went 3 over par for 8 holes and starting to worry as he put it about evep qualifying, recovered remarkably for a 70, 2-under par. He had a 32 on the inside, the best 9 of the day. Jack Webb, of Spirit Lake, the 1949 winner and Herb Klontz of Cedar Rapid*, who heat Bliss for the 1953 title here, had 71s and Fred Gordon of Belmond, the 1947 champion, had a 73. Leahy and any or all M the former champs, however, might be wiped out early in the treacherous. 18-hole matches. Leahy's Opponent Leahy's opening opponent was Clark Toussaint of Cedar Rapids, who qualified with a 76, Bliss also drew a Cedar Rapids opponent, Boh Davis, who also had a 76. Webb was matehed with John MarschaJU of Hampton, the University of Iowa player, who had a 76 and Klontz met Bernie Irwin of Des Moines, another 76 qualifier. Gordon's first round foe was Keith Campbell of pis Mojnes, who had a 77. Bliss, who has won the title twice and lost two times in the championship finals in an eight- year span since moving from Omaha to Des Moines, actually seemed more concerned with his 14-year-old son's round than his own 70. Youngster Just Misses Rod m, playing with his father, scored a 79, just missing the quali' fying limit qf'7$, The youngster ruined his chances with a triple bogey 7 and a doubU bogey s. Both Webb and Klonts had good opportunities of passing Bliss for medalist "honors but Webb spoiled his when he went 3 over par on the 10th and nth holes, Herb couldn't get a long putt down, "Boy, I didn't have anything go down all day," Herb moaned. With reason, too, because he hit 18 or 18 graana for possible birdies. Share Runner-up Sharing runnerup honors with Webb and Klont* were John Ey» mann of Forest City, who plays cross-handed, and Duane Massey of Dubuque, 19-year-old Loras Col' lege graduate. One of the most interested ipae- tators was Johnny Jacobs, formerly of Cedar Rapids, now living in nearby Garner. Johnny, who won a record six titles before turning professional, hopes to regain hii amateur status in early August. Jacobs, now 8« has a particular fondness for tha Mason City dub, As an l8.year.old youngster he won his first state amateur title here in 1931 and his last at tha same course in 1950.

Jerry Ibach, the Coon Rapids pitcher, will seek his 19th straight win. His last defeat was on July 25, 1956 in a relief role against The Lakes. His 18 consecutive victor* ies include seven last summer, eight during the spring and three this summer. The invaders hold a half-game bulge over second-place Carroll and a loss would reverse the situation. On the other hand, a Coon Rapids victory would give the current leaders a one and one-half game edge. Meantime, the standings in the middle bracket tightened up in Tuesday night action as Audubon shunted Churdan into the second division with an 11-3 victory pvef Breda. Scott Paces Audubon Lefty Carroll Scott paced the resurgent Cardinals as he hurled five and two-thirds innings of no- hit ball and led his mates at the plate with four singles hi five times at bat. The victory moved Audubon into third place, three games off the pace and pushed Breda a notch deeper into the cellar. Scott thwarted the Eagles until Kenny Goecke singled with two away and nobody on fn the sixth. He also recorded 15 strike outa over the nine-inning route. Wednesday Foes A pair of renowned strike out artists will oppose each other on, the mound in Carroll in the league showdown Wednesday. Don Burgess, the Carroll manager, will oppose Jerry Ibach, the Coon Rapids ace. Burgess has compiled 58 strike outs m 4QH innings and owns a 3-2 record. Ibach has 31 strike outa in 29& innings; he owns a 3-0 record; and he sports a .306 earned run average. in the only previous meetinng between the two this- season, Ibach won a 7-1 decision as ha limited Carroll to five hits, Surges* was tagged for nine safeties in that encounter on June 23. Troublesome Fifth The Breda Eagles ran headlong into a bad fifth inning on Tuesday night when Audubon counted five runs on four hits, three Breda errors and two hasei on balls. The Eagles never quite recovered from that blow. Audubon had garnered three runa in the first hy ning and added another run in the sixth. Rich LeweiL the Audubon catcher, capped the triumph with a home run in the ninth with a mate aboard. Breda scored in the seventh when with one away Jack QuMn walked. He went to second on Kenneth King's infield grounder and scored on Jim Bengfort'* iin» gle. In tha ninth,-the Eagles added a pair.
