Carroll Gains Half-Game; Nip Manning 4-3 in Newk Blows Top; Feuds With Crowd BROOKLYN l*V-The Dodgers! DdW^NHWWinbe was mad enough to'spit today. But did he expectorate at the crowd in Jersey City- Wednesday night? Press box occupants at the Brooklyn-New York Giant game thought tftey caught a spitting gesture directed at the booing, hooting crowd as the star pitcher trudged off the field after another ninth-inning blowup. Ever since Big Newk blew up in the World Series last fall the writers have witched every move of the contra versial righthander. Too Mad ,Asked about it later, a fuming Newcombe snapped: "Maybe I did, maybe I didn't. I was too .... mad, to remember." . : Newcombe's anger was twofold; tfcree outs from shaking a slump that has kept him winless in near$'a month,.NSwk was blasted for i'three-run pinch homer by the Giants' Hank Sauer that wiped out a,5-3 Brooklyn lead and led to an &S Giant victory. , Braves Hike Margin WithWinOverReds By ED WILKS The Associated Press Gene Conley, who last spring figured "to have myself the best season of my major league career," then went winless for two months, has found, the touch again. Re's keepingMhe pennant- pressing Milwaukee Braves perking- in the National League Pennant race,^ Timet Herald, Carroll, Iowa Thursday, Aug. S, 1957 ii mu m i II HI i not from dale barton's KEYBOARD! Viiiititi iViiiiiiiito Lions Deny Trade Rumor 'DETROIT A report that the Detroit Lions plan to trade halfback Lew Carpenter and a future draft choice to the Cleveland Browns for linebacker Roger Zat- koff has been branded is untrue b£ Lions Coach Buddy Parker. "There's no deal now and there ajjjyer may be, * Parker said -••A spokesman for the Browns ajfo denied that such a trade was in; the offing .The Carpenter-Zatkoff trade was reported in the Detroit Free Press Wwnesdoy night. w barker said "we've never" triedj torhide the fact that we'd like to get Zatkoff" but added that Carpenter, who is due out of the service next month, was just one of f eral Detroit players mentioned previous trade talks with the Browns. Alexander Hamilton is said to gave written most of George Washington's farewell address. The big right-hander helped the Braves pad their lead to 1% games Wednesday night, winning for the seventh time in his last eight decisions wjth a seven-hitter that beat fourth-place Cincinnati 12-2. The Braves have won 10 of their last 12 in a battle with St. Louis for the top spot,, and Conley. now-7-5. has claimed four of the victories — the top contribution! from Milwaukee's pitching staff. , Edged Ahead Milwaukee edged farther ahead as the seventh-place, Chicago Cubs, socked second-place St. Louis, for the second night in a row, this time 54. '.tij^drplace Brooklyn fell four game* behind, losing 8-5 as the New York Giants scored five in the ninth and handed Don Newcombe hi! fourth consecutive defeat. Newk, who led the majors with a 2?-7 record last season, made a spitting gesture toward the booing fans at Jersey City's Roosevelt Stadium as he walked off, still burning from Hank Sauer's plnch-hit three-run homer that triggered the uprising. Yanks Lose In the American League. Washington scored three in the ninth and beat New York 3-2. Chicago's second-place White Sox whipped Kansas City 7-0 on Jim Wilson's two-hitter. Boston defeated Baltimore 5-2 in 11 innings as Ted Williams hiked his batting average to .3$?,again. Detroit banged Cleveland 4*1. over the Dodgerc. Three were in relief. The big guy, taking the mound shortly after his wife had given birth to thetr third child, breezed Wednesday night. The Bra v e s backed him up with 15 hits*off starter-loser Brooks Lawrence and four relievers. Wes Covington was i-for-2, hammering his 11th and 12th home runs and adding a sacrifice fly for four runs batted in. He also scored four. Drott Curbs Cards I Rookie right-hander Dick Drott allowed only five singles, but needed Dick Littlefield's relief help to win his 10th for the Cubs. Littleficld came on in the eighth, with the bases loaded and one out—and got pinch-hitter Walker Cooper to hit into a double play. Walt Moryn, Bob Speake and Dale Long hit solo heme runs for Chicago, with Speake cracking a 1-1 tie against loser Herm Wehmeier in the fourth inning. Newcombe. shackled with 10 defeats for the first time since his sophomore season of 1950 when he was 19-11, hasn't had a complete game or victory since he won his ninth July 12 against Cincinnati in Jersey City, Brooklyn's home- away-from-home. After the game he said he was "too .... mad to remember" whether he actually spat at the fans. Roy Campanelto, with four singles in four at bats, drove in three. Dodger runs Marv Grissom won it. The Nats, who didn't have a hit for six innings and only two singles after eight, got to Tom Sturdivant when Roy Sievers hit a SLIM CROWDS: There seems to be a divergence of opinion among various Central State League club officials, but most of them agree some teams are hurting at the gate. , A good case in point is Audubon. When Carroll played there on Sunday night, there was the proverbial handfull of hardy Cardinal fans in the stands and not too many Carroll followers. Breda players estimated Wednesday night's Audubon crowd at about 40 persons. Carroll has not drawn as well as expected. The only good crowd, and the only one that looked like the old Iowa State League crowds, was the one for the controversial protest game between Carroll and Coon Rapids. There happened to be considerable wagering by the betting gentry on the outcome and that in part influenced the interest in the game. Breda, Churdan and Coon Rapids have drawn adequate crowds and Manning officials consider their crowds large enough to continue. However, all the parks mentioned in this paragraph could accommodate more fans. They are not being packed to capacity. Interest in baseball has dimmed. That explains the proposed move of the New York Giants and the Brooklyn Dodgers. They want to get into new territory where fans have not seen major league baseball. On the local scene, there is no "newness" to the semi-pro baseball being played in this vicinity. The public seems disposed to the belief they should "live modern" with something new to excite their taste. There's a lot in what Leo Durocher said on a recent telecast Don Burgess Drives pinch single to open the ninth and Eddie Yost followed with a home, . run. Two singles, a sacrifice and;°ut of Milwaukee when he opined Art Schult's sacrifice fly scored that the Milwaukee fans deserve the clincher. Hank Bauer homered in the first for the Yanks and Mickey Mantle hit his 30th home run in the ninth. Bud Byerly won it in relief. Conley, a 26-year-old giant (he stands 6-8) who had a 14-9 rookie year in '54, was 11-7 in '55 then had shoulder troubles and an 8-9 record last season, was 0-4 before he beat Brooklyn in relief June I Princeton won all eight matches 26. Since then, he's beaten New to take the 1957 Eastern Intercol- York three times, Cincinnati legiate Tennis Assn. champion- twice. and has added another ship. ^_ a pennant because they make a regular picnic outing of a baseball game by taking their lunch and spending a long and enjoyable afternoon, or evening, in the ball park "It's like it used to be 20 or 30 years ago, and Milwaukee is the only place you see it," Durocher said. late 1 s»', Sate of Real and Personal Property!

(Staff Photo) • Breda Nudges Audubon As Heisterkamp Hurls AUDUBON - Howard (Butch) Heisterkamp moved from behind the plate to the mound and hurled Breda to a 3-1 victory over Audubon here Wednesday. The Breda manager gave up only four hits over the nine inning route and struck out nine Cardinals. His pitching opponent, Carroll Scott, chalked up 14 strike outs but had three of the five hits Old Pro at Second Base By CHUCK CAPALDO MILWAUKEE lff> - Birdie Tebbetts, whose lacklustre Cincinnati Redlegs lost their 10th game in 12 starts against Milwaukee Wednesday night, says Red Schoendienst is "the difference" on the National League leading Braves. 'This is the best balanced ball club Milwaukee has had since I've been In the league,!' the Redlegs' skipper said after the. Braves' 12-2 walkaway, "and Schoendienst is the difference." Tebbetts is not alone in his estimation of the veteran second baseman's worth to the Braves. Schoendienst's teammates' and opposing players, like the Dodgers' Peewee Reese, also pulled out the stops when talking about Red. Good Trade . The Braves acquired the 34- year-old infielder, who always seems to be in the right place at the right time, from the Giants on June 15. {he major league's trading deadline. To get him they gave up Bobby Thomson, Danny O'Connell and Ray Crone. So far, the deal shapes up as probably the best engineered by i John Quinn, the Braves' general manager. Ih 46 games in a Milwaukee uniform, the freckle faced native of Germantown, 111., has batted ,317 —five points higher than his overall average for the entire season. He has committed only two errors in 289 chances for a fielding percentage of .993. Overall, Red is the best fielding second baseman In the league with an average of .989. "We all look up to him," said third baseman Eddie Mathews. Ii The Old Pro ' "He's the old pro. He settles you down and gives you confidence. As far as making the plays, the fel low's fantastic. "I've played'with about 15 second basemen," said Johnny Logan, the shortstop, "and he's the best. He's 80 per cent better than the rest of them." Last week when the Dodgers were in town, Reese said, "Schoendienst has made a big difference. he allowed bunched in one inning First Blood Audubon scored first as they counted a single run in the fourth. Cloy Kneeskern singled and gained second, base as Larry Clark flied out and Ray Johnson struck out. Russ McLaughlin lived on an error and Kneeskern raced across the plate with the lead run. Breda got the run back and wrapped the scoring up with a big explosion in the sixth. Jim Bengfort. singled and was held at third when Dale Lesle doubled. Kenny Goecke went down on strikes. Don Schenkelberg singled Bengfort and Lesle j across the plate. Control Fails Don Koster was safe on an error and Kenneth King walked to load the bases. Scott's control wavered and Lou Oswald drew a walk that forced Schehkelberg home with the third Breda run. With the bases still loaded with Eagles. Don Schaefer went down on strikes for the second out and Hesiterkamp'hit into a fielder's choice to end the uprising. The loss dropped Audubon out of a tie for third with Churdan and gave the Eagles their fourth triumph in 17 games.

The Merchants were forced to go overtime by the battling Blue Sox when Roger Ohde got Long out for the first time with the lead run on second in the bottom of the ninth and thereby ended a threat. Ohde contributed to his own downfall In the fatal 10th. After Rich Bengfort led off with an infield single, Ronnie Hested bunted back to the mound on an attempted sacrifice. Ohd* heaved the ball into centerfield on an attempt to force. Bengfort at second and that miscue resulted in Carroll runners at second and third with nobody out. Bob Rothmeyer lined a pitch to Ed Lucas at short to account for the first out. Then came the most dramatic suspense of the game Dramatic Suspense Don Burgess, the Carroll pitcher, was at the plate. On the first pitch he attempted and missed a bunt. With Bengfort ready ttf streak for the plate on a squeeze, the Blue Sox infielders edged closer to the line and Burgess drove a grounder between third and short for a clean single to left that ea'sily scored Bengfort with the winning run. Long paced a 14-hit assault by the Merchants as he collected a home run, triple and single and accounted for a pair of runs-batted- in. Bill Burgess also got into the extra-base act with a long booming triple that lacked a foot or so of clearing the fence in right- center field. Roger Ohde accounted for Manning's first run with a blast over the left field fence. Aside from that the Blue Sox got only five other safe blows of! Don Burgess. However, four o' those came in the sixth inning and accounted for a pair of runs. Manning Victimized Manning was victimized by* el ther miscalculation or ineptness on the base paths in the sixth. With two runs home, one out and the bases loaded, the Blue Sox saw their big inning vanish in a cloud of dust as two runners were picked off and run down on the base paths to end the inning with no further damage. ' Manning's rally got underway when Long dropped a fly ball to let Hargens live on an error. After a pitch got away from Augie Fischer, and allowed the runner to move to second, Lucas singled to left and Hargens came home. An error was charged to the left fielder as Lucas sped to third. Merlin Rostermundt singled to left and Lucas rode home. Bases Loaded With Dennis Ramsey at the plate, Rostermundt stole second and moved to third when Ramsey smacked a single to left. Schaeu ble dumped a slow roller down the third base line and it went for a hit when Hested discovered he had no play on the runners. With the bases loaded, Ohde struck out for the first out. Then with Schoeppner at the plate, Ros termundt strayed a trifle too far down the base line and a snap throw by the catcher trapped him qff third. On a quick run-down, the ball went back to the speedy Hested at third and he caught and tagged Rostermundt en route to the plate. Tagged by Lang While all this .transpired. Ram soy decided to move from second . to third. Hested's throw to Bengfort at third arrived before Ramsey could gain the objective and he retreated toward second. By this time, centerfielder Long' arrived on the scene at second. Bengfort's throw to Long was speared on the run by fleet-footed Sammy and Ramsey never had a chance as he reversed direction, and was easily tagged out by Long. Carroll's first run was Long's lead-off homer in the sixth. The Merchants tallied two In the seventh. Cletus Heinrichs singled with one away and was forced by Ray Blankenship. Bill Burgess tripled and Blankenship came home.' Long tripled and Bill Burgess scored. Bengfort then grounded out to end the rally.
