Dick Radatz Continues to Hurl Goose Eggs Parade of Pitchers As Cardinals Win 5-2 ST. LOUIS (AP) —"Now pitching for the. . ." It became a familiar announcement in St. Louis Friday night as the Cardinals and the Pittsburgh Pirates waved in an almost exhausting string of pitchers before finishing their night's work. St. Louis finally won the near- monotonous battle of wits, 5-2, for a share of first place in the National League. The pitching parade began in St. Louis with the score tied, 2-2, in the last of the seventh inning. Julian Javier opened with a single off Pirate starter Bob Friend. Tim McCarver's third hit, a sacrifice, and an infield single by Curt Flood broke the tie and ousted Friend. Then in succession came Harvey Haddix, Tom Sisk and Elroy Face, who each'faced one batter in the inning, Pirate .Manager Dan Murtaugh waved away Face after two hits, a walk and a hit batter produced . a run in the eighth. Bob Veale entered to walk in a run and then left for Al McBean,. who got the last out. Ray Sadecki went seven innings, giving up a two-run homer to Donn Clendenon, after replacing starter Ray Washburn wit.n one out in the first. Washburn suffered a recurrence of a shiul- der ailment. Bob Humphreys look over in the eighth. He retired the only man he faced and departed with a pulled muscle.. .Ed Bauta finished the inning, but .left for •: a pinch-hitter and Bobby Shant?' finally put an end t,o the contest.

The Grand 01' Man keeps rolling along as the ace of the pitching staff at the age of 42. The southpaw wonder forced another revision of the record books Friday night as he blanked the Philadelphia Phils 3-0 for his 57th National League shutout and career victory No. 336. Spahn allowed only three hits, struck out three and walked just one as he boosted his season -record to 9-3 and moved more than a month ahead of his pace in 1962 when he "slumped" to a mere 18 triumphs. While outduoling 21-year-old Ray Gulp of the Phils, Spahn moved into a tie with Jim Galvin for seventh place among the all- time shutout loaders. He also climbed within 10 triumphs of taking over seventh among all-time winners and within 22 whiffs of replacing Rube Waddell as the No. 1 left-handed strikeout artist in major league history. go branch, (Navy Pier) and the University of California, compiled 107.5 points in the men's elite division.

(AP)-"I intend to play in the open next week if I have to carry my own clubs —and I've got a heavy bag." Aching neck or not, that was the determined promise of Jack Nicklaus as he pondered whether ie should continue pursuit of his chief rival, Arnold Palmer, today n the $100,000 Thunderbird golf classic. Nicklaus, scheduled to defend liis National Open crown next Thursday through Saturday at the country club in Brookline, Mass., came up with a muscle spasm in his neck Friday during the second round of the Thunderbird. Although in intense pain, he finished with a 72 for a score of 141. This placed him only four shots back of the lead. "If my neck's not sore when I get up Saturday, I'll play," Nicklaus said. "If there any danger of hurting my chance in the open, I'll pull out. I'll definitely play in the open." HobbieandMaxwell Windy City Heroes •/. •/ CHICAGO (AP) — Pitcher Glen Hobbie of the Chicago Cubs and utility outfielder Charlie Maxwell of the White Sox grabbed the icros' spotlight Friday night. In Los Angeles, Hobbie hurled he Cubs to a 4-1 victory over he Dodgers for his second decision against five losses. Both wins lave been over the Dodgers and mtil Friday night he had not completed a game against them iince August, I960. He walked only one man. Backing Hobbie was Ernie Banks, with his 14th homer, in he sixth and a double in the second that drove in the first Cub un. Ron Santo homered off Larry Sherry in the eighth. The Dodgers' only run came on a pickoff play with the bases oaded in the sixth. Willie Davis, Flon Fairly and Tommy Davis singled in succession. When Hob- threw to Andrew Rodgers at short, trying to nail Fairly, Rodgers fell down handling the toss. Davis streaked for home. The Cubs continue at Los Angles today with Larry Jackson (7-5) tangling with Don Drysdale (7-7). Maxwell punched his first home run of the season in the ninth inning to give the league-leading White Sox a 3-2 victory over Kansas City. The triumph went to relief pitcher Jim Brosnan, who held the A's to two singles in three scoreless innings. The A's broke up a scoreless duel between starter Gary Poters and Ed Rakow with two runs in the sixth. A walk, an infield single by Maxwell and a two-run double by Ron Hansen tied the score in the seventh. Ray Herbert (5-3) will be the Sox starter today against Diego Segui (1-2). Palmer, coming back after a month's rest during which he pulled his sagging game together managed to hold on to a tie for the lead despite a luke-warm put ter. He shot an even par 70 for 137, tieing 27-year-old Bobby Nichols of Louisville, who added a four- under-par 66 to a first round 71. One stroke back at 138 were young Jack Rule of Waterloo, Iowa, the first round leader with Palmer 67-71 and Art Wall, Jr.. the Masters champion and lead ng money winner of 1959, with a orace of 69s. It was a tight packag2 at the n;ad of the pack as 87 pros and three amateurs prepared for the final two rounds over the 6,550- yard, par 70 course. South Africa's Gary Player, the other member of the big three which includes Nicklaus and Palmer, was at 139—two shots back—with eight other tougn pros, Sam Snead, Jay Hebert, Dow Finstenvald, Gardner Dickinson, Joe Campbell, Bob Duden, Dick Crawford and Canada's Al Balding. Bon Hogan, the immortal four- time open champion, thrilled the nostalgic galleries by fashioning a second 71 for 142, well under (lie tialf way breakoff point of 146.

Scoreless String Now Stands at 3 3 By BOB GKEEN Assorliited Press Sports Writer Dick Radatz is a large, burly young man who frustrates hatters with a simple formula. He just leans back and throws it past 'em. The 6-foot-6. 245-pound Boston Red Sox right-hander used h i s speed in two innings of spotless relief work in Boston's 5-1 conquest of slumping Baltimore Friday night.

Radatz, who hasn't allowed an earned run in 15 appearances ince May 12, needed only three pitches to work out of a jam vhen he relieved Earl Wilson vith the bases loaded and none >ut in the eighth. John Powell ;rounded into a double play on ladatz' first offering, and Jim Jentile fouled out on the second pitch to him. Charlie Maxwell hit his first lomer of the season leading off the ninth inning and broke a 2-2 tie for the White Sox against Kansas City. Ron Hansen's two-run double in the seventh pulled the White Sox into a tie. The Tigers' Don Mossi blanked New York on three hits through six innings before homers by Joe Pepitone and Clete Boyer in the seventh brought the Yankees from behind a 2-0 deficit. Jim Bouton, 8-2, went the distance for the victory, only New York's third in nine games with the Tigers this season.
