Coon Rapids 3 Friday's Game: Coon Rapids at Carroll Sunday's Games: Carroll at Manning Breda at Audubon Coon Rapids at Churdan Tuesday: All-American Girls at (Exhibition) Carroll Chance for Carroll to Regain Lead The resurgent Breda Eagles, behind the superb pitching of Roger Mahnke, presented the Carroll Merchants with an opportunity to topple Coon Rapids 'from the league lead in Friday's replay of last week's protested game in Carroll. The Eagles knocked off the dominant club in the Central State League with a 3-2 victory. The Coon Rapids loss shaved the margin between the leaders and Carroll to one-half game. When the two teams replay the protested game here tonight, starting in the top of the third inning with Dick Textor on second base via a single and an error, and with Coon Rapids leading by one run, the second place Merchants will have a chance to displace Coon Rapids at the top of the standings. Burgess vs. Ibach The opposing hurlers on Friday night will be the starters of the protested game. Don Burgess will be on the mound for Carroll and Jerry Ibach will hurl for Coon Rapids. The Breda victory that tightened up the league race came at the expense of Bob Behrens, third- string Coon Rapids hurler who was derricked in the third inning in favor of Elmer Prescott. Breda got to Behrens in the first inning when Jim Bengfort walked and went to third on Kenny Goecke's single. He scored on Don Schenkelberg's single to left. In the second inning Don Schaef- •r walked and stole second. He scored on Lou Oswald's single to right. The Eagles broke through the Coon Rapids defense again in the sixth with another single counter. With one away, Schaefer was safe on an error by Mike Blanchard at third. He moved to second on Oswald's single to left. RBI by Mahnke Mahnke drove in what proved to be the winning run with a base hit to right field. Bengfort walked to load the bases but was picked off first for the second out and Kenneth King flied to left for the third out. Mahnke had held Coon Rapids in check during the first six innings, despite the fact they had collected six hits and stranded a total of eight base runners in those frames. In the seventh, the league leaders broke the spell. Counter Attack Prescott led off with a single to center field. Monthei struck out for the third consecutive time, but Dick Textor doubled to right and " Bob Cousy, star of the cham Prescott stopped at third. Mike pion Boston Celtics of the Nation- Blanchard singled to centerfield al Basketball Assn., led the circuit' fnd Prescott scored with Textor in assists last season with 478 holding at third. Dale Tryon drove a sacrifice fly deep into center field and Textor scored after the catch. Jerry Ibach, playing left field, drove a pitch into center field but Schaefer made a fine running catch to retire the side. In the bottom of the seventh, the Eagles blew a chgnce to pad the margin when two base runners were picked off. Goecke singled and moved to second when Schenkelberg walked, but with an apparent sacrifice in the offing Goecke got too far off second and was picked off by catcher Ronnie Mau. Don Koster walked and then Schenkelberg likewise got too far off and was trapped in a run-down on a play from the catcher to the shortstop to the thirdbaseman. Handcuffed Mahnke handcuffed Coon Rapids in the last two frames. He struck out Mau in the eighth and then got from dale barton's KEYBOARD FORMER FOE: The pitcher who has gotten the Breda Eagles back on the winning track is a fellow who wasn't too popular in Breda a couple of winters back. On March 5, 195ft Roger Mahnke scored a free throw that knocked St. Bernard's basketball team out of the district tournament at Denison on a 68-67 score. The star of the Early Cardinals scored 18 points in that game, but the one that hurt the most came after time had run out on the clock. The officials ruled Breda had committed a foui just before play ended and that gave Mahnke a chance to toe the line and sink the shot that kept the game from going into overtime. Breda, contended the foul, if any. had been committed after time ran out, but a protest to the Iowa High School athletic Association wa's to no avail. The record book shows Early with a victory by one point and that's the way it stands. Breda players who were crestfallen at the time include three regulars on the Eagles lineup. They are Howard "Butch" Heisterkamp, Kenny Goecke and Don Schaefer. Significantly, an old teammate of Mahnke's, Ronnie Mau, was one of the toughest batters for the Early ace to dispose of in the game with Coon Rapids on Thurs- Jerry Doran and" Marvin Streams I day ' lM!au collected two hits in on grounders. In the ninth he ! ou f ' ri P s a 8 ainst the offenn « s of struck out Prescott and got Monthei on strikes for the fourth consecutive time After Textor lived on an error, Blanchard grounded out to end the game. The Breda hurler struck out 10 and walked none He contributed to the attack with an RBI single. Goecke led the Breda hitters with three singles while both Oswald and Schaefer picked up a pair of hits. Textor paced Coon Rapids with a pair of doubles and Ibach and Mau each contributed a pair of hits.

He also is assistant Monthei struck out basketball coach. NEW YORK (fl-The New York Giants "is dead." By next year, the National League club will have shifted to San Francisco, or Minneapolis, or someplace. Club President Horace Stoneham laid it on the line Thursday, announcing he will recommend to his board of directors that the Giants quit the Polo Grounds at the end of the season, and indicating Angeles—when the two clubs decided to do so—was thought to be a package deal, with one move hingeing on the other. "That is not true," said Stoneham. Left Door Open Stoneham indicated San Francisco and Minneapolis are the prime possibilities for a new Giant home, but left UK door open for any "satisfactory deal"— Gil Hodges Puts Huh!h On Hot Seat BROOKLYN (ft - Gil Hodges' 12th career grand-slam home run not only gave the Brooklyn slugger a share of the'National League record, but also put St. Louis Manager Fred Hutchinson on the grill for second-guessers—notably Cardinal General Manager Frank Lane. Why did Hutch let Wilmer (Vinegar Bend) Mizell, a southpaw, stay in to pitch to Hodges, a right- handed belter? That's what Lane wanted to know. Capped by Inning The grand-slammer capped a five-run ninth for the Dodgers in Thursday's game, won by Brooklyn 10-9 in 11 innings to plunk the Cards out of first place, after St. Louis had scrapped back for seven runs in the top of the ninth for a 9-4 lead. "Why did he (Hutchinson) let him stay in there?" asked Lane afterward. "I kept yelling at him to take ,him out. But he didn't." No Restrictions Lane, the free-talking GM who picked Hutchinson as his field boss before the 1956 season, first said his comments were "off the record," then repeated the remarks to all-comers with no restrictions. Hutchinson, who has told his players to overlook Lane's critiques, had nothing to say after the game. Shares Mark Hodges, who hit his first major league grand-slammer May 14, 1949, now shares the league mark set by Rogers Hornsby with the j Cards (7), Giants (1) and Cubs (4) and previously tied *by Ralph Kiner with the Pirates (11) and Cubs (1). All of Hodges' have been with the Brooks. Lou Gehrig set the major league record of 23 with the New York Yankees. Ted Williams of the Boston Red Sox tops the still active belters with 14.

Nobody loses like the leaders these days. '•*••'••' Since the scramble really got tight early in June, the lead has changed hands no less than 10 times, with Milwaukee's Braves moving back in with a one-game edge Thursday night on a 4-2 victory at Philadelphia after Brooklyn socked St. Louis out of first with a 10-9, ll-inning stunner.

Only the Braves .have playd over .500 while on top, winning seven'of 13 games fdr a .538 percentage. The Cards were 7-9 while in first for 438. Cincinnati won only two of eight for .250. Brooklyn (0-1) and Philadelphia (0-2) didn't win once .while in the lead. Cincinnati's ^Redlegs, who have managed to stay within two games of the top although losing eight of their last 12, remained a close fifth with a 2-1 decision over the New York Giants Thursday.

"I don't think New York can support three clubs," he said, "and I'm "not so sure it can support two. From what I've been given to understand, the city of New York is bankrupt."

He reeled off four more before losing to Giardello on a split decision, City 3-1 and Washington blanked Cleveland 4-0. The Braves, who have won six of nine since the All-Star break to take the lead for a fourth time, were without slugging Hank Aajron for the windup of the three-game sweep at Philadelphia. But Del Rice drove in three runs, two with a homer off loser Curt Simmons, to take up the slack as Aaron rested an injured ankle and joined Joe Adcock, Del Crandall, Felix Mantilla and Bill Bruton on the injury list. Bob Buhl, who had lost four in a row, beat the Phils a third time for a 10-6 season record. He needed Don McMahon's relief in the ninth.

The Brooks rallied for five runs in the ninth- capped by Gil Hodges' 12th grand- slam homer for a'share of the NL record with Rogers Hornsby and Ralph Kiner—to rub out a 9-4 deficit after the Cards had put together a seven-run comeback in the top of the ninth.
