JkVluftlMU iJb>LhiUKAHH AUGUai », Pirates Fail to Crack, Win Two Leaders NowOwnSi Game Bulge By IOK REtCflLER AMocteted ftttm Sports Writer Dick Croat may not hit a home run or steal a base all year bu today, With the National League season two-thirds over, he must be rated a leading candidate for most valuable player honors. The 29-year-old Duke alumnus Rave an example of his ingenuity as the Pirates swept a doubleheader from San Frandsco Sunday 4-! and 7-5 to pull away to their biggest lead of the season — 5 games over Milwaukee and St Louis. It happened in the eighth inning of the nightcap. The score was tied 5-5 and Pittsburgh's Bill Mazeroski was on third following his single and bunts by pitcher Elroy Face and Joe Christopher. Groat did the last thing the Giant defense expected. He bunted —the Pirates' third straight bunt. There wasn't even a play on Ma zeroski at the plate and when Orlando Cepeda threw wildly to first Christopher also scored. Groat also played an important role in the opener, with three Hits and one run batted in. His five hits in the two games gave him a league-leading total of 137 and boosted his batting average to .312, fourth high in the circuit. The Braves regained second place from St. Louis, eking out'! 5-4 victory over Chicago's Cubs while the Cards were held to a split by Cincinnati. The Redbirds won the nightcap 4-2 after the Reds had amassed 21 hits for 18-4 victory in the opener. Los Angeles's f o u r t h-place Dodgers climbed to within a game of second, taking two from Philadelphia 8-7 and 2-1. Bob Friend scattered seven hits, struck out six and coasted to his 12th Pittsburgh victory in the opener. A seventh-inning home run by the Giants' Hpbie Landrith cost him a shutout. Pittsburgh overcame a 5-0 deficit in the nightcap. After pecking away at Billy O'Dell for single runs in the second and fourth, they tied it in the fifth on a three- run homer by Christopher, his first in the majors. Elroy Face, in relief, picked up his sixth triumph. Johnny Roseboro, Tommy Davis, Maury Wills and pitchers Larry Sherry and Sandy Koufax were the stars of the Dodgers' double triumph. Roseboro doubled Davis home in the ninth to break a 7-7 tie in the opener. Sherry, who finished with six scoreless innings after a shaky start, received credit for his ninth victory. Koufax struck out 11 and allowed only four hits in the nightcap. Kenny Boyer's bases-loaded single in the seventh of the nightcap drove in the winning runs as the Cards overcame a 2-1 deficit. Cincinnati's attack in the opener in eluded a grand slammer by Jerry Lynch, three doubles by Wally Post and five hits by rookie third baseman Cliff Cook. Warren Spahn registered his 12th triumph of the year for the Braves and raised his lifetime victory total to 279 but he had to survive an eighth-inning rally. The Cubs shelled him from the mound with a four-run attack that included Frank Thomas' three-run horn er. THIS ONE DID IT NORMAN, Okla. — Doug Blubaugh, right, gets firm grip on Phil Kinyon's leg. Seconds later Kinyon crashed to the mat with Blubaugh on top of him. Action occurred in Saturday morning's final match to fill the 160^-pound berth on the U.S. Olympic wrestling team at Norman, Okla. Blubaugh made his takedown stand up all the way for a unanimous 1-0 decision. It was the first time in 11 matches the two former college teammates had reached a decision other than a draw. Kinyon attends Oklahoma State in his home town of Stillwater while Blubaugh is a soldier stationed at West Point. (AP Wirephoto) U. S. Coach Says Wrestlers Haven't Got Killer Streak NORMAN, Okla.

The United States leads 2-1 after a narrow doubles victory Sunday which was not decided until the eleventh game of the fifth and final set. In opening singles, MacKay, badly ofMorm, was beaten by Osuna, only Mexican ever to win a Wimbledon fdoubles title. Buchholtz upset Mexico's top Mario Llamas. MacKay will start today's play against Osuna, the pressure lifted by the doubles victory Sunday in which Buchholz and Chuck Mc- ftnley defeated Osuna and Antonio Palafox, 2-6^ 6-4, 7-9, 6-4, 7-5 Baltimore Shows Power in Winning By JOE KEICHLEK AvwicUted Pre*» Sport* Writer And now they've got hitting, too. The main rap against the Baltimore Orioles was their almost total lack of power. The experts last spring conceded Paul Richards' kiddie crew had speed, defense and pitching. But who besides Gus Triandos and Gene Woodling were capable of providing the long ball? Richards showed 'em Sunday. The supposedly weak-hitting Orioles banged out 30 hits, including six home runs and two doubles in their 8-6 and 9-2 sweep of a doubleheader (ram Cleveland. They slammed five home runs in the first game to set a club record. Woodling hit one. The others were made by Jim Gentile (2), Jackie Brandt and pitcher Jack Fisher. The double triumph boosted the third-place Orioles to within a half-game of second and two games of the top. The runner-up Chicago White Sox whittled New York's first- place lead dowo to 1V& games by winning a pair from Washington 9-7 and S-2 white KJJWU City was holding the Yaaknw to a split in their twin hBL The Athletics won the second game 134 after New York ta§| woo the opanar 8-a. Detroit «i| Bostap divided a pair, theTtgeirs winning the first game 7-2 and the Red Sox taking (he second 1-0. Ninth inning clutch hits by Gene Freese and Minnie Minoso provided relief ace Gerry Staley with both White Sox victories. Freese slammed a two-run homer in the first'game to break a 7-7 tie. Min oso cracked a run-scoring single with two out in the final inning of the second game to break a 2-2 tie. Bud Daley scattered eight Yankees hits and finally posted his 13th victory—after five consecutive defeats. His Kansas City mates supported him with 14 hits. They shelled Ralph Terry from the mound in the first as the first four batters hit safely. Bill Skowron won the opener for the Yankees with a two-run homer in the ninth that spoiled Ray Herbert's bid for his fifth straight triumph. Skowron drow in two runs in the nightcap, too. Billy Muffett not only pitched a four-hit shutout for Boston but made three hits himself and soured the only run of the game us the Red Sox gained a split with the Tigers. Jim Bunning fanned r to win his seventh tor the Tigers in the opener. Rocky Cola- yito cracked three of the Tigers' U hits and Coot Veal drove in two runs. The opener was Detroit's first victory in four games since Joe Gordon started running the club Friday nal workouts before heading for Rome. Robertson and Briggs Hunt wil put the finishing touches on the 16-man team today, Tuesday and Wednesday. Thursday the grap piers leave for New York anc Sunday they fly to Rome. The training camp — the firsi one in history for Uncle Sam's wrestlers—opened July 22. Last week was devoted mostly to the eli-iination matches that produced eight Greco-Roman anc eight freestyle winners from the original squad of 35. Both men feel this is the bes conditioned squad to represent the United States. But Robertson says the freestyle team may be hard put to match the 1956 edition which got only one silver medal. "Our boys all seem to know a lot more about wrestling," Robertson says, "but they haven't developed those two or three holds you just have to, in order to win in international competition." In all the matches here last week, only two pins were regis tered. However, Robertson, tor mer coach here at the University of Oklahoma, believes they wil be a little more aggressive since they have made the team. Colts Are 18-Point Favorites CHICAGO (AP) - The College All-Stars, given little chance against Baltimore in Friday night's mid-summer football clas sic in Soldier Field, could upset the ' National Football League champions or lose by 50 points. That's the summation of Coach Otto Graham going into the final week of preparations for the 27th annual contest whiih the profes sionals have dominated by win ning 16, losing 8 and tying 2. The Colts are 18-point favorites in the game whirii will be televised and broadcast nationally (ABC-9 p.m. EST). "Anything could happen." says Graham, the head football coach at the Coast Gu<»rd Academy, who will be leading the All-Stars tor the third successive year. Although this does not appear to be one of the better All-Star squads, the team will have size and passing ability — two factors necessary to combat the pros. Twenty-five of the 47 men on the squad are 220 pounds or better and the passing chores will rest on the arms of Don Meredith of Southern Methodist, Qeorge lao of Notre Dame and Pete Hall of Marquetee. The All-Stars must stop the Baltimore olftnse, a task which professional teams have been unable to meet. Johnny Unitas will do the pats- ing to Ray Berry, Jim Mutcchtl- ler «nd Lenity Moore and that meant; the collegians must present a formidable j>ai^ defense. Alton's 1344 Stars Defeat Centralia, 15-7 CENTRALIA — Alton's 1344 year-old baseball All-Stars scored heavily in file late bininga here Saturday to hand the Centralia All-Stars a 15-7 lacing.

(AP; —Is a Palmer finish going to replace a Garrison finish among sports fans? ' Time was when a solid way to describe a fantastic, heart-pump Ing, come-from-behind victory was to call it a Garrison finish, after famed jockey Snapper Garrison of another day. But the way Arnold Palmer has been winning golf prizes this year he may be the Garrison of today's generation of sports fans. Palmer, he of the strong jaw and rugged muscles, staged a spectacular finish again Sunday to win the Insurance City Open It was almost identical to the finishes that brought him the Masters and U.S. Open titles earlier this year and establishec him as the No. 1 golfer. Five strokes behind Jack Fleck and three behind Bill Collins, with 18 holes left to play in the 72-hole grind, Arnie caught the 1955 Na tional Open champ on the 70th with a birdie, Collins joined them Umpire Slugs Manager in SA B:RMINGHAM, Ala. (API — Southern Assn., President Hal Totten said Saturday there "was aggravation but not justification" for Saturday night's fracas between plate umpire Russ Fisher and Memphis manager Joe Schultz. „ Fisher attacked Schultz with his fists while the Memphis manager argued that a Brimingham player's hit was foul. Schultz did not strike back. Both men have been indefinitely suspended. "A fine has not been decided on as yet," said Tot ten. Terming the incident "very unusual," Totten said: "Vhere was aggravation although not justification for an umpire losing his aplomb." The league president said he couldn't excuse the action but realized that "a man can take just so much." Totten said he is "inclined to believe that the suspensions will not be of long duration." Fisher, 41, lives at Bloomington, Dl. He has been umpiring about eight years but this is his first year in the Southern Assn.

He hit the green 18 feet from the cup on the par-3, 183-yard 75th Fleck was short, but approachec wit' In four feet.

Headquarters of the American Power Boat Assn. in Detroit was asked to approve the postpone ment. Three drivers and a sky diver were injured. The latter, Charles Kirkpatrick, 26, of Snohomish Wash., cut loose too quickly from Ills chute during an exhibition jump and fell 50 feet into Lake Washington. He suffered serious chest injuries.

Argentina (AP)—Luis Angel Firpo died of a heart attack Sunday at 65 still convinced that he won the heavyweight championship from Jack Dempsey almost four decades ago. It was on Sept. 14, 1923 that Firpo stepped in the ring at the Polo Grounds to battle Dempsey tor the title. The fight lasted less iian two rounds but it was one Of the most vicious in history. Seven times in little more than wo minutes, Dempsey knocked Firpo to the canvas. Then, with less than a minute left, Firpo caught Dempsey with* a lethal right to the head. The champion toppled through the ring ropes and onto the typewriters of reporters covering the fight. He climbed back into the ring, covered up for the rest of the round and cam. out fighting again in the second. Again he caught Firpo and the Vild Bull of the Pampas, as he tad become known, toppl •d twice more. Each time he got up. Then tt the 57-second mark, Dempsey again connected and this time Firpo didn't get up. The fight established Firpo as a national idol here. After meeting Dempsey, Firpo fought only twice more in the United States. He lost both bouts. Then he came back to Argentina, fought a few times and quit the ring. "There were four tones when I should have been declared the champion in that fight with Dempsey," Firpo recalled recently. "Dempsey fouled me three times and should have been disqualified. Once he hit me when I was getting up and once he hit me when I was talking to the referee. He earned about a half-million dollars fighting and invested it in an automobile agency here when he retired. Then he expanded his interests to cattle ranching. He recently estimated his fortune as several million dollars. Dempsey was shocked at Firpo's death. "He was the most dangerous man I ever fought," said Dempsey. "His punch, ruggedness and raw courage gave boxing one of its greatest boost*. WATCH. III Yfur LIVI Mivir Ink In ••» Ita I «r •tt «J1 STANKA GARAOE Mat* *., Marti) AMw UttJ UU I sill mwc BfUe fit..
