Kaline were sing ed outtoday as the 19S7 All-Star Gfttfte heroes, but some critics attributed the American League's $.5 victory Tuesday to good breaks, poor National League base running and Casey Stengel luck. Each side scored three times in th* ninth inning. A fine throw and catch by Minoso preserved the AlSeriean'* second triumph in the last eight years and Stengel's second success in seven All-Star of the ninth drove in Kaline with the winning run. Second -Guessing Why did National League Man ager Walter Alston decide to let easy out on Minoso's throw to Boston's Frank 'MalZone. Why didn't Cincinnati's Frank Robinson, who had opened the National's fifth with a single, run to alt Cl. > v aiici. r»JoLvu *4v;v*i«^r. \,\s i\.-v «.»«.• ^-.. •_* ....... -•- — — - -- ^ Milwaukee's Eddie M a t. h e w s | second on Mathews' apparent line swing away in the ninth inning? The potential tying runs were on s%cond and first, and with nobody out, strategy cried for a bunt. Why didn't Cincinnati's Gus Bell stop at second on Chicago Cub Ernie Banks' one-out run-Scoring single in the ninth which cut the drive hit to right field? Instead, Robinson retreated after going halfway and was thrown out at second by Kaline, who made a one-handed stab 9! the ballon the first bounce. Wanted Long Bail "I thought about having SlUglC III vile illlli.ii rviu«-n vwi, \.-t*\* > * v •• «• — e •• ~ — American's lead to 6-5? Bell triedjMathews bunt," Alston said. 'But flmsi Herald, Carroll, l«wj Wednesday, July 10, 1*57 Eddie has good power and is a left- handed pull hitter. With that short fight field porch an inviting target I wanted to give him a chance to hit that long one for us." "As for Bell, I think he did the right thing. In fact, I was glad see him trying for third. He ed that tying run on third with only one out. Gus is a good base runner. He thought he had a ehaftel and he gambled. You cart sit and wait in this game. It teak a perfect throw to get him and Minoso made it. "About RofeinsoB, 1 «a«'t «ei how anyone can tritictee him. Maybe the fans up in the stands had a better view but we on the field couldn't teH whether Kaline caught Mathews' lirter o? not." Bell told newsmen in the dressing room that he thought he was safe at thlri ;, • Had Chance "t thought t had a good chance to make H when Mtlione slewed up Banks' hit," he said. "1 wbuld never have run had. h« not touched the bail. 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, whottt Casey nominated to start only because Cleveland's larly Wynft, his ftrigi- nal choice, had been used Sunday. Bunning hurled'three perfect innings, retiring nine batters in succession as Stengel's crew built up a S-d IM* iiittlt Philadelphia's Curt Lees also kept the National League sluggers from scoring during the nekt three innings while the American Leaguers increased their lead to 3-0 ia the sixth- after Burdette had stopped them; ift the third, fourth *|id fifth.

UR-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 bout. ' ' The California Athletic Commis^ sion called a special meeting, here, today to: • Approve or reject the 15-roupd match Sept. 11 at Gilmore Field, home of the Hollywood baseball club. Approve or reject a request for 4 promoter's license in the name of Sinatra. Agree on Terms ^ The principals agreed on terms Tuesday. Opposition to the fight quickly bubbled to the surface, with at least three established clubs or promoters slated to appear before the commission. ' Ready to object, not so much to the fight as to the promoter's license, were matchmaker Jack Leonard and two members of the Hollywood Legion Stadium board ef "directors, Underwood and Claude Cummings; promoter Cal fiaton and hi? wife, Aileen, of the Olympic Auditorium in Los Angeles, and. Bennle Ford, San Francisco promoter. Jules Covey, attorney and a for mer chairman of the state boxing tojrepresent Sina tra and bis business manager, Henry (Hank) Sanjcola. Sanicola is a devoted , fight fan and with $&ttra owns a "piece" of lightweight Cisco Andrade. . "we doat particularly • wanl tfe* fight ourselves." Leonard said . before leaving HoDywood. "We might take it if we had to. ' we object to ,a rich, guy like Sinatra coming in otf a one•hot deal. We certainly couldn't afford to make Moore an offer of 410<MJOQ. It isnt worth that money. "B«t a man lifee Sinatra can, and if h* loses, he can just write it off Jp taxes. We aw in this business tat our bread and butter.

The former champs did fancy jobs in the 18-hole qualifying round Tuesday. SJtaky Start Rod Bliss of Des Moines, off to a shaky start as he went 3 over par for 8 holes and starling to worry as he put it a.bout even 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 1^49 winner and Herb KJontz of Ced,ar Rapids, who beat Bliss for the 1953 title here, had 71s and Fred Gorgon of Belmpnd, the 1947 champion, had a 78. Leahy and any or all af the former champs, however, might be wiped put early in the treacherous, 18-hole matches. Leahy's Opponent Leahy's opening opponent was Clark Toussaint of Cedar Rapids, who qualified with a 70, Bliss also drew a Cecjar Rapids opponent, Bofe Daviprwho ajso had a 76- Webb was matched with John Marschull o| Hampton, the Univer^ sity of Iowa plsiyer, who had a 76 and Klontz met Bernie Irwin of Des Mojnes, another 76 qualifier, Gordon's first round foe was Keith Campbell of pis Mpjnes, who had a 77. BJiss, who has won the title twjpe and Jost two times in the championship finals in an eight- year span sinee moving from Omaha to Des MPJncs, actually seemed more concerned with his 14-year-old son's round than his own 70.

Jerry Ibach, the Coon Rapids pitcher, will .seek his 19th straJgh.t win. His las.t defeat was on July 25, 1956 in a relief rpje against The Lakes. His 18 consecutive victories 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 on.e and one-half game edge. Meantime, the standings ip the middle bracket tightened up -in Tuesday night a.ction as Auduben shunted Churdan into the second division with an 11-3 victory over- Breda. " ,, Scott Paces Audubon Lefty Carrol] 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 foyr 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 outs 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 mam ager, will, oppose Jerry Ibach, the Cpon Rapids ace. Burgess ' has compiled 58 strike outs in, 49% innings and owns a 5-2 record. Ibach has 31 strike' puts in 29.^, innings; he owns a 3-0 record; he sports 8 .306 earned run average. '. ' In the only previous m.eetjnni between the two this, season, Ibach won a 7-4 • dtcjgion as h| limited Carroll . to five hits, iw gess was tagged for nine safeliiea 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 fo'ir hits, three Bre» <ja. errors and two bases on balls. The Eagles never quite recovered • from that blow.
