The remarkable Braves Beat Giants, 4*3; Lead by 71 NEW YORK <* - If Manager Fred Haney of the Milwaukee Braves were asked to single out the game which gave him the most satisfaction this season, he undoubtedly would select Tuesday night's 4-3 triumph" over the New York Giants. , Not so much because the victory boosted the Braves' first-place margin over St. Louis to 7Vi games. Or because all the runs were furnished by left-handed power, a commodity the Braves sorely lacked last year. Or because Don McMahon, his new bullpen ace. came through with a perfect two-inninf performance to preserve Lew Burdette's 14th victory. Turning Point To Haney's way of thinking, the turning point came in the sixth inning when a long-practiced defensive play by the Braves came off to perfection and resulted in an odd double play that averted a possible big inning by the Giants. "That play was worth all the hours and all the work we put in this spring," declared the little pilot.

No line about old pros or how the New York Yankees always win the big ones. Just Yogi Berra, . The guy was tremendous. He drove in six runs, had four hits in five trips and stopped the nonsense with a three-run homer that cracked a 6-6 tie and hustled the Yankees to a 12-6 victory Tuesday night in the opener of that all- important three-game series with the (Jhicago White Sox. It may have won the series and clinched the pennant. The White' Sox were after a sweep to stay alive. But when you spot 'em a 5-0 lead, scramble back for a tie and still lose, what's left? Braves Increase Lead While the Yankees were scrapping to stay on top in the AL, Milwaukee's Braves were lengthening their lead to 7^ games in the National with a 4-3 victory against the New York Giants. Sec ond-place St. Louis pocketed a vie tory in the completion of a game suspended July 21 at Pittsburgh, but then lost the regularly scheduled game 2-1.

Williams was 2-for-4 for a .386 average, smacking his 450th career home run (32nd this year) as the Red Sox battled back from a 3-0 deficit. The Thumper walked to open the decisive 11th,. riding in with the winning marker on Dick Gernert's two-run single. Jim Piersall's homer had given the Sox' a 5-5 tie in the eighth. Duke Maas was the loser while Ike DeLock won it. Don McMahon's relief pitching— a perfect two-inning job — saved Lew Burdette's 14th victory as the Braves, out-hit 11-7, rode in on home runs by Red Schoendienst, Ed Mathews and Frank Torre that scored all the runs.

Casey Gloats, Gloom in Sox Club House By JOE MOOSH1L CHICAGO W—"We're in pretty good shape now," gloated Casey Stengel Tuesday night after his New York Yankees had beaten the challenging Chicago White Sox, 12« 6, to open a 4Vi game lead in the American League pennant race. "We were in bad shape when we came,to town," continued Stengel "But how can I be in bad shape now? We Won, didn't we?" Wasn't Easy The= Yankee victory, iced by Yogi Berra's tie-breaking three- run homer in the eighth inning, wasn't as easy as the score indicates. The Bombers jumped to a 5-0 yead only to have the Sox claw back for a 6-6 tie in the seventh. But Berra, who drove in six runs with his homer, a pair of singles and a double, broke Chicago's back with his 20th homer on the first pitch tossed by reliefer Paul LaPalme. Stengel, who used four pitchers in the game, said of ths Sox: "You gotta stay alive against those fellows. They didn't roll over when we jumped in front. No sir, they played like professionals and you gotta keep an eye on them. Way back in spring training I said they'd be tough and most people laughed at me. "My pitching has been a little off but maybe we'll straighten out ; now: I got Larsen (Don) all rest- j ed up for tomorrow night but then 1 1 might use Shantz (Bobby) if his I hand is okay. Yes sir, we're in pretty good shape now." Not Ready to Quit The White Sox clubhouse was gloomy, naturally, but Manager Al Lopez wasn't ready to throw in the towel. "We're not out of it yet," said Lopez. "I said before the game that if they win one or two they won't knock us out and if we won three we wouldn't have the pennant won. It's an important series to be sure, but there're still about 30 games to go. We just have to keep winning, that's all."
