Section 2 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH Established January 15, 1836 ALTON, ILL., SATURDAY, JULY 16, i960. 5cP*rCopy Mamtow of Vtm AwMtott Prt» Fireballer Broglio Strikes Out 14 BirdHurler Club Win Cause Helps ST. LOUIS (At»)-Ernle Brog- Ho, chlded a year ago about nig success against Japanese batters, now Is an Iron man starter-re- liefer and a major reason for the St. Louis Cardinals' first division drive. The big right-hander from the San Francisco Bay area made Ws| 10th victory a 6-0 one-hit, 14- j strikeout performance against the i Chicago Cubs last night. It was; tho season's top nine-Inning strike- i out total in the National League. 1 The Rodbircls obtulnrd Broglio 1 from the Giants for Hobble Landrith, Billy Muffltt and Benny Va-i lenzuela. Only Landrlth is still' with the Giants. Broglio has won five straight in, a 10-4 season and his earned runi average is among the best in thej league at 2.81. Surprisingly, hej has appeared in 34 games— 26 in| relief— compared to 33 games for the Cards' ace relief man, Lindy McDanlel. ! "/ll J needed was a chance,"' the 24-year-old fireballer said in the clubhouse. "Solly (Hemus, 1 Card manager) certainly gave it| to me." Ernie was erratic in a 7-12 season last year. He pitched three shutouts, but he was bombarded at other times, as his 4.72 earned run average shows. Hemus stuck; with him all the way. ; Broglio was unbeatable In the: Redbfrds tour of Japan after the! 1958 season, just after they obtained him. Ernie is an imposing figure on the mound with his 6-j foot-2, 200 pound frame. When he; was getting hit last season, opposing bench jockeys wondered; out loud if he had merely scared the Japanese hitters. This season is completely different. Friday night he permitted only three base runs— two walks and Ed Bouchee's second inning single. Bouchee also was the only batter who didn't strike out at least once. He threw 144 pitches — not a high number, considering the strikeouts. Ernie's victim was Don Cardwell, who fired a no-hitter at the Cards May 15 and Ernie LAST WORD PHILADELPHIA — Umpire Bill Jackowski turns for final word to Milwaukee Braves shortstop Johnny Logan (23) at end of argument over play at second base in 5th inning of last night's Braves - Philadelphia Phillies game.

Four Teams Scramble in Junior Loop B.V ED WILKS Associated Press Sporls Writer The hot bats of Rocky Colavito and Brooks Robinson have hammered the American league pennant race into a tight, four-team package. Colavito's tie-breaking homer triggered a six-run third inning for Detroit as the Tigers rapped i New York' 8-4 Friday night and tagged the Yankees with a four- game losing string for the first time this season. It was Rocky's fourth home run in three games and chopped New York's lead to 1V S games over ! second-place Cleveland. The Indians beat Washington '1-0 as Jim Perry won his 10th with a four: hitter.

These same critics will undoubgtfy be heard from if he falters during the second hatf« the season. If the critics don't get their chance this Jjason they'll undoubtedly get another one in the futum^But, before they do, wouldn't it be only fitting for The Man to bow out after a good season at the plate. Stan's lifetime batting average in the major* J* .337 If he can equal that mark of surpass it with another fine year, he will have had that good year in which to give up the game which has provided him with numerous rewards and satisfaction. Musial would not be satisfied with bowing out on a below .300 batting average. He has tremendous personal pride and his burning desire to prove once more he has been THE player of the last 20 National League years would find him once again the following season battling the law of averages. | Few shining athletes have been able to swailow their pride and retire as one of the top few in their respective athletic careers. Rocky Marciano gave up ring wars while he was at the top. Since his retirement he has refused offers to return. Sometimes it take? more courage to refuse rather than step in a ring, up to the plate, on the mound, at the 10-yard stripe or at center court just to see if what once burned brightly .could flicker again. Immediately after the second All-Star game Musial said he was not giving any thoughts to quitting. Perhaps not after such a "real pro" display. If Musial does continue to play until the ultimate end it is this writer's hope he bows out in a blaze of glory . . . say, a .350 year and a couple more records to his credit. • * w It's a little early for the Most Valuable Player for each major league, but it appears as if Ernie Banks of the Cubs will have a tougher time this year defending the title he has won the last two years. If San Francisco makes a fight of it in the second half of the season and Willie Mays keeps powdering the ball the way he has, the amazing Ma,ys will probably be Banks' chief competitor for the coveted award. There's always the possibility, too, that if the Cardinals make a good showing Musial or Lindy McDaniel could win the marbles. Musial winning the MVP award is not as far fetched as it may sound. Since his insertion in the lineup again the Cardinals have played good ball. If he keeps it up and if the Cardinals continue to play as they have in recent weeks Musial couJd be the big man in the drive. It goes without saying that McDaniel is the most valuable pitcher on the staff. Very few reliefers give a fan the feeling of confidence when they step on the mound. McDaniel, however, gives the impression he can and he will stop all the nonsense by the opposing team if it happens to threaten. Dick Farrell of the Phillies, .Ryne Duren of the Yankees, Ed Roebuck of the Dodgers, Gerry Staley of the White Sox, Bill Henry of the Cubs and Elroy Face of the Pirates are others ,vho give the same impression. In the American League Ron Hansen and Jim Gentile of the Orioles could conceivably win the MVP award. Roger Maris is tearing the league apart for the Yankees as is pitcher Jim Coates. Harvey Kuenn of the Indians is coming on strong and with the Tribe threaten- ng for the lead, he could slip in as winner. In the National League it's the field against Banks, while in the American it appears a more wide open race.
