Mantle Hurts Foot, Out for 6 Weeks JOYOUS WELCOME CHICAGO—Teammates applaud and congratulate Chicago Cubs slugger Ernie Banks (14) as he enters dugout following his seventh inning home run in first game against San Francisco Giants in Chicago Wednesday. It was the second homer of the game for Banks and gave him a string of seven consecutive hits in his last three games. Cubs won first game, 9-5. (AP Wirephoto) Nobody Laughs Now At Surprising Cubs By BOB GIIKEN Associated Press Sports Writer The Chicago Cubs are acting ust like they're serious about this ame of baseball. Which, of oursc, just couldn't be. Everyone knows the Cubs are a cam you point at and giggle. nagine, a nine-man coaching taff and, of all things, an ath- tic director. Sure, a million aughs. Only, who's giggling? Certainly ol the San Francisco Giants. Nor ic rest of the National League, •for, come to think about it, nny- ne but dyed-in-the-wool Cub fans. The fired-up Cubs swept a dou- leheader from the Giants 9-5 and -4 Wednesday and vaulted into tie with St. Louis for second ilace in the National League, just ne game back of the leading Hants. •Rookie Ray Gulp threw a three- itter in leading Philadelphia to 3-0 edge over the Cardinals, mokey Burgess drove in the wining run in each game as Pitts- urgh swept Cincinnati, 5-4 and -3; Milwaukee outlasted New York 11-9 in 10 innings and Los Vngeles beat Houston 5-1 behind Jandy Koufax. The Cubs' sweep ol San Fran- :isco made it 10 victories in their ast 12 games artd six of nine with he league leaders. The Cubs lashed five home runs n the first game, but had to nave a little luck to salvage the nightcap. Lou Brock scampered in rom third with the tie-breaking run when the Giants' Chuck Hill" 1 : dropped a pop fly in short right field in the seventh. Ernie Banks hit two homers in the fitst game, and Billy Williams, Ken Hubbs and Brock one each. For the Giants, Harvey Kuenn and Willie Mays had first-game homers, while Willie McCovey and Orlando Cepeda connected in the nightcap. Gulp, a 5100,000 bonus right- hander for the Phils, had allowed only a single by Ken Boyer through 8% innings against the Cardinals. Boyer then collected his second single and George Altman singled bef tee the 22-year-old rookie struck out Julian Javier to end the game. The loss dropped the Cards to a share of second, one game off the pace. The Pirates' Burgess broke a 4-4 tie with a pinch-hit single in the eighth inning o: the first game and doubled in what proved to oe the winner in the nightcap against the Reds. The Dodgers' Koufax scattered eight hits and stroked a key single in a 'decisive three-run sixth inning against Houston. The victory, Koufax' eighth against three losses, pulled the Dodgers to within 1% games of tiie Giants. Bubba Morton drove in two runs with a bases-loaded single in the 10th inning for the Braves' win ning margin against the iMets. Milwaukee had blown a 9-1 lead behind Warren Spahn with the Mets scoring seven unearned runs in the sixth ard tying it in the eighth. BALTIMORE (AP) — Mickey I Mantle, the injury-prone superstar of the New York Yankees, hobbled to the sidelines today with a broken bone in his left loot which may keep him out of action for six weeks. The 31-year-old centerfielder, playing with typical all-out effort, sustained the injury while trying to haul down a home run hit by Brooks Robinson of the Baltimore Orioles in the sLxth inning of Wednesday night's game. While trying to make the catch and prevent the Orioles from tying the score, Mantle backed into the wire fence about 410 feet from home plate with his glove hand raised above his head. His spikes apparently caught in the fence and his foot twisted as lie fell to the ground. X-rays taken at Union Memorial Hospital disclosed a fracture of the third metacarpal bone—about midway between the toes and the inkle. His leg was put into a cast p to his knee. Dr. Erwin Mayer, the Orioles' cam physician who treated Mane, said the cast probably couldn't e removed for two to three eeks, and it might be two or rree more weeks after that be- ore Mantle can play again. Manager Ralph Houk said he /ould await further advice from Sidney Gaynor, the Yankee By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS American League Batting (100 at bats)—Malzone, Boston, .341; Wagner, Los Ange- es, .330.

Yanks Could Be Hurting Without Mickey Mantle By MIKE HATIIIST Associated Press Sports WrilerO Mickey Mantle's cast stretches • 'rom his toes lo his knee. And inite possibly to Ihu heart of (he New York Yankees. The blond belter, four-time home •un champion and three-time Most Valuable Player, suffered a bro<en bone in his left foot Wednesday night as the Yankees whjpped Baltimore 4-3 and regained the American League lead by .004 points over the Orioles. Doctors estimate the injury—a ;racture oi the third metucarptil ione, a small bone running across ihe top of the foot-may keop the Yankee slugger out. ol the world champions' lineup for as long as six weeks. And while no player on the Yankees is indispensable, there is lit,le doubt that the men in pinstripes are n radically changed club with Mantle on crutches. That's been jhown in the past when the $100,000-a-year center fielder has been sidelined. The injury came as Mantle ran into the center-field fence—there is no warning track at Memorial Stadium—trying to catch a homei hit by the Orioles' Brooks Robinson. His spikes became entangled in the wire fence as he backed up for the ball and his left foot twisted as he fell. While the Yankees were losing Mantle and beating Baltimore, the Chicago White Sox lost an oppor tunity to take over first place. Needing a doubleheader sweep over the Los Angeles Angels the White Sox won the opener 3-0 but lost the nightcap 8-2. Elsewhere, Minnesota continued to move up by downing Kansas City 4-0 and Detroit edged Cleve land 5-4. The Boston-Washington game was rained out. The Yanks' victory came when Roger Maris scored in the eighth nning after Tom Tresh banged nto Oriole catcher Dick Brown, (arring the ball loose as Brown ,-ocked his arm to throw to first on a doubleplay attempt. The umpires disallowed the Ori oles' contention that Tresh had de- iberately bumped Brown. The win went to \Vhitey Ford, 7-3. The White Sox won the openev on a bases-empty homer by Dave Sjcholson and a two-run shot by Jim Landis. John Buzhardt scat- :ered nine hits for his sixth victory against two losses. The Angels won the nightcap with a seven-run sixth inning uprising against Ray Herbert, 5-3 Albie Pearson, who stroked foui hits, broke a '2-2 tie in the vail} with a bases-loaded single.
