Cards Edge Giants, 6-5, in Weird Finish MusiaPs Pop Fly Falls, Flood Scores ST. LOUIS (AP)—The St. Louis Cardinals beat league leading San Francisco 6-5 in a weird encounter Friday night. The win, combined with a Cincinnati victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers, put the Cardinals in second place two games behind the Giants. It was an up hill victory for the Redbirds who were fresh from, a sweep of a series with Houston. But the finish confused many fans and ball players alike. The Cardinals, after tieing the game at 5-5 in the seventh, loaded the bases with none out in the ninth. Stan Musial facing Billy Pierce popped up and was called out on the infield fly rule. Curt Flood, however, took a chance and started for home. The Giants let the ball drop and Flood crossed the plate with the winning run. Earlier, the Cardinals tied the game when Bill White homered in the seventh, following a single by Flood. San Francisco scored four runs in the third for a 4-2 lead off starter Curt Simmons. They picked up their final run in the fifth inning. Bob Gibson came on in relief to win his third victory. He has lost three. Don Larsen took the loss. He is 2-3. In today's game at St. Louis, it will be Jack Fisher (3-5) for the Giants against Ron Taylor (2-1) for the Cardinals. San Fran.

By MIKE RATHET Associated Press Sports Writer Nobody's about to fill Bo Belinsky's brogans, but by a strange quirk of fate Dan Osinski may wind up taking his place.

Jackson is the first recipient of the award dedicated to the memory of the Marquette athlete who died last November.—Don Hayes photo Early Wynn Back With Tribe Again PRANK CLAUSE WHERE SHOULD MY LEFT FOOT BE POSITIONS DIN THE STANCE? For righthanded bowlers who use the conventional fourstep ap proach, I recommend that they .ake their stance with the left 'cot approximately one-half of a shoe length ahead of the right bot. Also, the left foot should be separated from the right by an nch or two. This type of stance accomplishes two things: First, t allows the bowler to bend his knees a bit, to relax easily; sec ond, it makes the first step of he delivery — a step with t h e right foot — a natural movement. 2,550 Points Barber In Decathlon By ST.
