WEDNESDAY, JUNE 26, 1963 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE NINETEEN Giants Give Top Spot Back to Cards, 6-5 Cepeda's Bad Throw Lets In Big Run ST. LOUIS (AP) - The San Francisco Giants have returned what they took from the St. Louis Cardinala—first place in the National League. The Giants scored four first inning runs Monday night—with the help of two Cardinal errors and a hit batsman—and scored a 4-3 victory. That triumph moved the Giants Itito first place, V* game ahead of the Cardinals. San Francisco gave back the top spot Tuesday night with a pair of wild throws that gave the Cardinals a ninth inning run and a 6-5 victory. The winning lally came after the Cardinals had blown a 5-0 lead. The ninth began with a single by Tim McCnrver. Pinch batter Red Schoendienst, attempting to sacrifice, bunted to pitcher Bob Bolin, who threw wild trying to get McCarver at second. Then Julian Javier also tried to sacrifice and first baseman Orlando Cepeda threw the ball into left field on an attempted force out at third base. McCarver scored the winning run. St. Louis appeared on its way to an easy victory as Ray Sadecki, aiming for his fifth straight victory, held the Giants scoreless on two hits for six innings. The Cardinals scored five runs in the first inning on a triple by Javier, Bill White's single, a double by Dick Groat, a single by Stan Musial and a home run by Ken Boyer. San Francisco solved Sadecki for a run in the sixth inning. Then they exploded with two outs in the eighth to tie the score. The big blows were a two-run home run by Willie McCovey and two- run triple by Felipe Alou off reliever Ron Taylor. Then came the gift run in the ninth inning that gave back first place to the Cardinals. Taylor (4-2) was the winning pitcher and Bolin (3-3) was the loser. Tonight, the two teams will conclude the three-game series with the Giants' Billy O'Dell (103) feeing Curt Simmons (7-3).

For a few hours, the Oriole* were missing. Pizarro's five-hit pitching and a seventh inning tie-breaking homer by Floyd Robinson gave the White Sox n 2-1 victory over New York Tuesday night and the Chicagoans to within nine percentage points of the first-place Yankees. In Baltimore, the standings showed the Yankees and White Sox at the top—in a nine-team league. The slumping Orioles, losers of 20 of 27 games and locked in a win 1 of words with the local pa- papers, had been "inadvertently dropped" from the team listings in the editions that hit the street before Baltimore's game at Los Angeles. Roberts proved emphat ically that the fifth-place Orioles can't be counted out, posting the 250th victory of his career with a superb four-hit, 10-0 triumph over the Angels in which Jim Gentile gave a loud answer to his Baltimore critics. Fined recently for not hustling, Gentile has been getting a rough going over from the boo birds. He gave Angel pitchers the same treatment, driving in six runs with pair of doubles and his 14th homer.

MIDWEST LEAGUE By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Clinton 5, Quincy 4 Waterloo 13, Quad Cities 0 Dubuque 8, Wisconsin Rapids 5 Burlington 14, Decatur 8 Fox Cities 12, Cedar Rapids 11 By JIM HACKLEMAN Associated Press Sports Writer Pity Houston's wandering Colts They can't find home away from home. Home plate again was out. of bounds for the runless wonders Tuesday night as they were zer oed, again, this time at Milwaukee 4-0 by Tony Cloninger. In suffering their 10th successive loss and 14th in 15 games on their current road trip, ihe Colts were blanked for the sixth time in their last seven games. In that non-shutout, Houston broke loose for one run. Since leaving Texas two weeks ago, the last-place Colts have totaled 11 runs—and six of those came in a doubleheader split at San Francisco. Eight times they've been shut out, five times they've scored one run. At the opposite end of the NL ladder Tuesday night, the St. Louis Cardinals reclaimed first from San Francisco, capitalizing on errant Giant throws in the ninth inning for a 6-5 victory. The Los Angeles Dodgers edged into second by trimming Cincinnati 4-1 behind Sandy Koufax' fine pitching and key hits from Jim Gilliam. Philadelphia beat Pittsburgh 5-4 on Don Demeter's 10th inning homer and the Chicago Cubs clipped the New York Mets 4-1 with three runs in the seventh. Cloninger zipped by the Colts with a four-hitter and the Braves got off to a fast start against Ken Johnson. Lee Maye belted Johnson's first pitch of the evening for ie McCovey homered with one on md Felipe Alou tripled with two on. In the decisive St. Louis ninth, Tim McCarver led off against Bob 3olin, the sixth Giant pitcher, with a single. Then Bolin made a bad throw to second after field- ng Red Schoendienst's sacrifice ount, and McCarver came the rest of the way when Orlando Cepeda pegged wildly to third after picking up Julian Javier's sacrifice. Koufax mastered Jim O'Toole in a battle between two star left- handers—with old pro Gilliam supplying the vital punch. Gilliam, who doubled in the third and scored the first Dodger run, doubled home Maury Wills with the tie-breaker in the eighth and scored again on Tommy Davis' single. Ron Fairly homered in the ninth off O'Toole, who allowed 11 hits in losing his fourth against 13 victories. Koufax, after a shaky start, finished with a six-hitter and rai his record to 12-3. He struck ou 1 nine for a 129 total—high in the eague; notched his 10th complete ;ame—high in the league; and owered his earned run average o 1.68—best among NL starters 1 . The Dodgers now trail St. Louis >y one-half game and nave an edge of two percentage points over the Giants. The Reds ire in 'ourth, two games out. Demeter hit the game-winning liomer in the 10th for the Phils agoinst Harvey Haddix, Pitts burgh's sixth pitcher. The Pirates sent the match into overtivn by scoring twice in the ninth on Bill Virdon's bases-loaded single before winner Johnny Klippsteii slammed the door. Pittsburgh punched out 18 hits— but also left 15 men stranded. Larry Jackson turned in a four- hitter for the Cubs and now is 5-0 against the Mets over two sea sons. Jay Hook stayed even with Jackson until the seventh, when the Cubs sent across three runs breaking a 1-1 tie. Billy Williams singled in the go-ahead marker then Ron Santo singled i n two more. Fast Ball Not the Same CINCINNATI (AP) — Sandy Koufax says he does not throw he ball as hard as he used to, but the Cincinnati Reds think he's still got plenty of hot stuff. He admitted he was on the ropes in the first and second inning Tuesday night, but he said IE finally got going to hold the Reds to six hits and give Los Angeles a 4-1 victory. "I struggled all over the place in the first two innings." Koufax said. "I was throwing the ball around, but finally my control improved. "I believe a pitcher's greatest feeling is to win when he does not have real good stuff. Then you have to use your control and just fool the batter. "I don't think I throw as hard as f used to, and I no longer believe I can beat Bob Feller's strikeout record. I can't throw that way any more. "Anyway, I'd rather get the batters out on fewer pitched bills than using a lot of them working lor strikeouts." a 400-foot homer and Joe Torre singled across another run before the opening inning was over. Milwaukee got two more in the seventh on a pair of doubles by Maye and Frank Boiling and Eddie Mathews' single. In a first-inning outbreak capped by Ken Boyer's two-run homer, the Cards rushed into a 5-0 lead against the Giants but it eventually took an unearned run in the last of the ninth to win it. In between, San Francisco pulled even with a run in the sixth and four in the eighth, when Wil- FRESNO. Calif.-Gabe Terronez, Fresno, outpointed Frank Ramirez, Los Angeles, welterweights, 12.
