PAGE THIRTY-EIGHT ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH THURSDAY, JUNE 20,1963 White, Bauta Keep Redbirds in First White Belts Grand-Slam ST. LOUIS (AP)-The St. Lou is Cardinals clung tenaciously t first place today, thanks to the power of Bill White and the pitch ing of Ed Bauta. White belted a grand-slam horn run and a double and Bauta al lowed only one run in 4 1-3 in nings of relief as the Cardinals completed a sweep of the three- game series with the New York Mets, 9-4. Tho Cardinals maintained their % game lead over the San Fran Cisco Giants, who defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers 8-3. The Dodgers are in third place, 2% games behind the Redbirds. "I was just in there swinging and got one squarely," salt White. The first baseman's grand slam was his second of the tea son and his sixth in the major leagues. He ranks behind only Ernie Banks of Chicago, team mate Stan Musial, Roy Sievers o: Philadolphia and Hank Aaron of Milwaukee among active players in grand slams. "They've all been pitching me close inside lately," White said "That's the only place they can get me. But if they hang the pitch or give me a fast one that's got much of the plate, then they're going to get hurt." White's drive brought the Cardinals back from a 3-2 deficit in the fourth inning. Bauta, pitching in relief oi starter Ray Sadecki, now is 3-2. Manager Johnny Keane did not speculate on the upcoming weekend series with the third-place Dodgers. The Giants follow the Dodgers for a series Monday. But Keane said the Cardinals were ready. "We're going to play them one at a time," he said. "We're in first place now. But a half game : isn't much to brag about." The Cardinals 'take a. day off today before beginning the big weekend series.

The reporter snapped out of his daydream when he heard again: "Ugly bear, total annihilation, tramp, greatest, bestest, handsomest, predict eight, he'll be in a worser fix if I predicted six ..." Cassius' monologue droned on. Back to reality, the reporter asked Cassius to face the facts. He is only 21, he has lots of time, what is the rush and does he really and truly want to fight the devastating champion? "Sure, I want that big, ugly bear but I gotta get my cut," said The Greatest Wednesday on his triumphant return from London where he had stopped British champion Henry Cooper in five rounds as he said he would. "I want a million and a half guarantee plus half of the TV money. My managers are working on the deal." How about Listen's cut? "Man, that.fight will draw a !15 million dollar gate with every- hing. It will draw more than Cleopatra and Cleopatra (Liz Taylor) was at . the ringside watching me Tuesday night."

"That's all right with me," said Cassius quickly. "His home town will witness the annihilation. And then it's only a hop, skip and jump to New York, Pittsburgh and all the other nice cities nearby so people can come to see the fight." As for the hurry to fight Liston, Mighty Mouth said, "I want to be the youngest, heavyweight champion ever. I want to break Patterson's record." He was told that his deadline then was Dec. 12. I'm gonna break the record," he said. This time he sounded like he believed it.

'Writer How does a team that has- tried everything find a new way to lose? By messing up a triple play, that's how. The New York Mets uncovered that new route in the fifth inning against the National League lead- ng St. Louis Cardinals Wednesday. The Mets were leading 3-2. The Cards had runners at first and second. Leo Burke smashed a grounder to Charley Neal who stepped on third and fired to second to start a triple play. Rod Kanehl dropped the ball at second. ' • . Curt •Flood walked and Bill White promptly hit a grand slam homer, the sixth of his career. The eventual 9-4 victory kept the Cards a half game in front of the San Francisco Giants, who trounced the Los Angeles Dodgers 8-3 at Candlestick Park. The Dodgers fell 2Va games behind the Cards. The Cincinnati Reds and Chicago Cubs, both four games back, kept pace. The Cubs won 9-1 over Houston and the Reds beat the Philadelphia Phils 6-5 in 10 innings. Pittsburgh pushed into a sixth place tie with Milwaukee in the other game on the card by beat- ng the Braves 6-2. Juan Marjchal pitched the San Francisco victory in his first start since he no-hit Hduston last Saturday. He needed help from -Billy Pierce in the eighth. •' Willie McCovey got the Giants off fast with a two-run homer on the first' pitch thrown to him by Don Drysdale of the Dodgers. Tommy DdVis tied the score with a two-run homer in the third that ended Marichal's scoreless streak at 22-3 innings. The Giants chased Drysdale with three runs in the fifth. Ernie Banks passed two landmarks for the Cubs. He smashed the 350th homer of his career, and drove in four runs to run his total to 1,003. Carl Warwick ruined Glen Hobble's shutout with a solo homer in the sixth. Leo Cardenas stroked a two-out single in the 10th to score Frank Robinson who walked, stole second and went to third on two more walks, in the Cincinna.i victory. Don Demeter hit two homers for the Phils. Pitcher Earl Francis hit a double and two singles, good for three RBI, and got his third victory for the Pirates, with stout relief help from Joe Gibbon. Hank Aaron hit his 20th homer, tops in the majors, for the Braves. Mack Jones also homered for the Braves. Bob SadowsW, acquired in the Lew Burdette trade, made his major league debut for Milwaukee, but failed to last the fifth. the duel between defender Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer,- ) and a drawling, dapper country boy of 51 had finished his last practice round.. ' "Lemme tell you about that rough," said Sam Snead. "Wny, sir, it must be as high as—well, four inches anyway. • "You know I hit one in there on that last hole and it's so nice and soft and fluffy and nice to walk in but it don't hold up that ball and it sits way down there. "I took out a 5-iron and I swung from here to long gone and you know I took away so much ground I turned up a Chinaman and thrue gophers. "Why, you know, you could easy bury a cat in there. All you gotta do is throw it in there and replace the divot and put a marker over it. I only missed that fairway by maybe two, three feet. A man should have a better shot at it when you're only off a few feet than when he's 100 feet off, now shouldn't he? "You sure don't here or for any of these open courses. And this one here is tougher than usual because those greens are so small and those fairways aren't very wide. "One thing about it, everybody's gotta play it and so everybody's gonna be miserable. But it's a funny thing, everybody cusses the Open but .everybody can't wait to qualify for next year." Snead, of course, is celebrated as one of the great pro golfers of all time; for the thousands of dollars he's earned from the game he helped make so popular; for the more than 110 tournaments he's won. But he's most famous for something else. He's never won the open. When the field of 150 teed off by the dawn's early light today, Sam Snead was beginning his 23rd consecutive attempt. In 22 Sox Wallop Twins, 12-4 By MIKE KATIIET Associated Press Sports Writer The hate-the-Yankees club, which hasn't sipped champagne since 1959, has an omen. Nellie Fox is hitting over .300. The last time Fox hit that high, the Chicago White Sox stole into the American League throne room tnd toppled the New Yorkers while the club members raided the nearest wine cellar and popped enough corks to fill Yankee Stadium. Nellie hasn't been able to approach his .306 batting mark of 1959 since, but at 35 he's in full swing again. He stroked five hits in six at-bats Wednesday night as the White Sox clobbered Minnesota 12-4 with a 19-hit attack. Fox collected four singles and a double, raising his average from .298 to .311 while rookie Tom McCraw and veteran Floyd Robinson each hit two homers and accounted for nine runs batted in. The triumph kept the Chicagoans one game back of the Yankees in their bid to give Manager Al Lopez another pennant. Lopez is the only manager to break the Yankees pennant monopoly in the last 14 years. He did it with the 1954 Cleveland Indians and the '59 Sox. The Yankees remained out in front as Roger Maris' three-run homer provided a 3-2 decision over Washington and New York's Sixth straight victory. Third-place Boston made It njne losses jn a row for Detroit 9-2. Baltimore ended Cleveland's winning streak at seven games, 6-2, after the Indians had taken the opener of a twi-night doublehead- er 5-4. And the Los Angeles Aa- gels beat Kansas City 4-2 in the opener of a twinbill before the A's won 4-3. Maris' three-run shot—his 12th —came after singles by Bobby Richardson and Tom Tresn in the sixth inning off Claude Osteen, a shut out winner over the Yankees the last time he faced them. Jim Bouton, 9-2, needed ninlti inning relief help to subdue the Senators, who pushed across two runs and had the bases loaded before they went down to their seventh straight setback. Carl Yastrzemski hit a pair of homers for the Red Sox, driving in four runs, while rookie right- hander Bob Heffner checked the Tigers on seven hits in his first rr.njor league start and kept new Detroit manager, Chuck Dressen, winless. Frank Malzone 'jlso had a homer for Boston. Rookie Gates Blown connected for a pinch-hit homer for Detroit in his first at bat in the majors. The Indians won the opener when Joe Azcue homered in the ninth. Milt Pappas, 5-3, spaced five hits for the Orioles' nightcap victory. Willie Kirkland 'lomered for Cleveland. Dan Osinski, 6-3, held the A's tp two hits in the opener but Bobby DelGreco's homer left him on the short end of a 2-1 score until Jim Fregosi hit a three-run homer in the ninth off Ed Rakow, 6-5. In the nightcap, the A's got the deciding run in the seventh inning on a single by DelGreco, Wayne Causey's double and a sacrifice fly by Ed Charles. ;op 10 no fewer than 11 times.
