Philadelphia walloped j Pittsburgh 13-4 in the only Nalion- i al League game scheduled. j Red Sox Manager Johnny Pesky ] didn'l believe the unbelievable) catch should have deprived Williams of a homer, because the bail was caught in the bullpen and played the game under protest.

Poiver Croivds Plate, Regan Gives Warning ST. PAUL-MINNEAPOLIS (APij —It was debatable whether Vic Power won a brief skirmish of fisticuffs, but there was no doubt the Minnesota Twins won the battle as they bombed Detroit 10-6 Thursday to sweep a three-game series and wind up their longest home stand of 1963. Power and Tiger starting pitcher Phil Regan enlivened a game of explosive hitting by squaring off at first base in the fifth inning. The pair had exchanged words when Power was batting in the fourth inning, and it developed into a in the fight fifth. when Regan walked Power took a swing back or a pitch. at Regan, but did no damage. Both teams spilled onto the field to restore order, and Power was ejected for being the aggressor. Power and Regan disputed whether Vic should stand so close to the plate. Regan, in hearing distance of plate umpire Ed Hur- iey, told Power to get he might get hit with Power told Regan what he could do with his suggestions. 'Weak Sisters' Will Get Help BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — New York and Oakland, the American Football League's weak sisters, will have the first chances in the AFL to sign players cut by any professional teams. Commissioner Joe Foss reported Thursday that AFL club officials, in a further effort to bolster two teams, reaffirmed a proposal initially approved last month. Under the plan, New York and Rookie Ray Gulp Gains 10th Victory By MIKE RATHET Associated Press Sports Writer Ray Culp, Philadelphia's $100,000 bonus right-hander who had a losing minor league record, is halfway home in his bid to become the first rookie pitcher since 1947 to enter the 20-victory circle in the National League. Culp, 21, won No. 10 Thursday night as the Phillies pounded 18 hits and clobbered Pittsburgh 13-4 in the only game on the NL schedule. If Culp continues at his present pace, he will have an excellent chance to become the first rookie 20-game winner since Larry Jansen of the New York Giants posted a 21-5 record in 1947. j Against the Pirates. Culp allowed two hits in six innings, but was touched for two runs and three hits in the seventh and was given a rest by Manager Gene Mauch. The Phillies piled up IS hits and their biggest run production of the season. The 18 hits tied the NL high for the season. Johnny Callison took hitting honors for Philadelphia, becoming the first player in either league to complete the single, double, triple, homer cycle this year. He tripled in the first inning and scored the first run, then followed with a three-run homer, a single and a run-producing double. Arnold Winick, with 17 winners, led the trainers for the fifth time at the 1963 Gulfstream Park thoroughbred meeting. r GOLFING NOTES the j Oakland would have !iO-day North Alton Wins, 13-2 in In Senor Church League softball Thursday, North Alton defeated Brawn Street, 13-2, College Ave. downed Curdie Heights, flr-w warilv into Houston todnv !o riods, after players were cut, in which to try to sign the ones which they were interested.

(AP Wirephoto) Willie Mays Having Off Season - .261 NEW YORK (AP)—The Willie Mays figures are truly shocking. At the end of June with the All- Star team about to be selected, Willie is running far behind his 1962 pace. Just look at the figures: K II 2B I!B HU RBI Avg. 1963 44 70 11 ] 12 33 .261 1962 61 90 21 3 21 65 .325 "There is nothing basically wrong," a friend advises. "He is just trying too hard. Every day, every inning Willie feels strongly that he must justify that big $100,000 salary the Giants are paying him. He feels he has to show something every day." When Mays collapsed last year in Cincinnati and was taken to a hospital for rest, his main problem was nervous tension. He bounced back and lead San Fracisco through the playoffs and into the World Series. Ask Al Dark, his manager, and you will get the usual answers that Willie is the greatest and he isn't worried. When Harry Jupi- le"r, a San Francisco baseball writer, asked Dark about Mays' chances of playing in the All-Star Game, Dark told him Willie always should be in center field for the National League as long as he is playing ball. The facts of the matter are that Vada Pinson of Cincinnati is hitting several points higher than Mays and may wind up getting the starting nod in the poll of the players, managers and coaches. The feeling here is that Mays probably will get the job, regardless of average. Wynn Tries Again For 300th Victory CHICAGO (API—"I will be the first to congratulate Early Wynn when he pitches his 300th victory, but I hope it will have to be by telephone or telegram." This was half-jesting, half seri Doris Phillips In Finals of Women's Golf FREEPORT, 111. (API — A new Illinois Women's Amateur golf champion was assured today when Salley Olsen of Rockford net Doris Phillips of Belleville :n the 3ti-hold title match over the Froeport Country Cotib course. Miss Olsen advanced to the fi- mls by defeating the defending .'hampion, Lois Drafkc, of La 3range, who was shooting for an inprecedented sixth state crown. The semifinal match ended on the i9th green with Miss Olsen scor- ng n 1 up decision over her vet-1 ?rnn opponent. Miss Olsen sank a three foot putt to score a vic- :ory as Miss Drafke missed her 'our foot putt. At one point Miss Olsen had Miss Drafke two down, but Hie defending champion managed to pull even at the end of the regulation 18. In Thursday's second semifinal mutch Miss Phillips moved into the finals by scoring a 3 and 2 decision over Rao Ann Wiognrl of Rockford. oils comment by Manager Al Lopez of the sizzling White Sox after learning the 43-year-old Wynn will oppose the Sox here again Friday night in the opener of a four-game Cleveland visit. It was only a week ago that Wynn tried for No. 300 against the So.x al Cleveland, hut lost a hear) breaker to his former teammates 2-0 on Ron Hanson's two- run homer in the ninth with two out. Wynn's opponent at Comiskey Park, where the So.x just finished polishing off the New York Yankees three-out-of-four, will be Dave DcBussehere (0-1), making his second start. In last Friday's frustrating .setback, Wynn was opposed by Sox ace Juan Pizarro. "Wynn may be going for his 300th, but of more importance to me is that I'll be going after my No. 1 victory," said DeBusschere. DeBusschere is 22, just hujf the age of the venerable Wynn who was released by the White Sox after the 1962 season and signed with Cleveland eight days ago. "I had Wynn six years at Cleveland and five years with the White Sox," said Lopez. "You bet I'd like to see him get that 300th victory—but not against his old pals, you understand."

(AP) — His old crown knocked askew, his prestige badly shattered and his game slowed to a walk, a badly beaten Pancho Gonzalez insisted today he still can beat any tennis player alive. "I'll play any one of them any day of the week, and I'll bet on myself," he said after his 10-8. 2-6, 6-0, 6-1, defeat at the hands of Peruvian Alex Olmedo in the first round of the U.S. Pro Tennis championship at Forest Hills Thursday. "I'm willing to play thorn any place, any time and for whatever they want—if they dare. And I'Jl guarantee the gate," he said. Gonzalez' defiance did not reflect his play against Olmedo. who simply let the 35-year-old former tennis ruler run himself into the ground during the first two sets. "My legs just gave out on me," said Pancho. Tony Trabert. director of the player combine that is feuding with Gonzalez, was as happy as if he had been Puncho's conqueror instead of Olmedo. Gonzalez and the association have been fighting in public and the courts over rival television shows and other matters. The association suspended Gonzalez and he filed suit against it. "Gonzalez was thoroughly beaten," Trabert gloated. "And I enjoyed it very much. Particularly because of all the throats and the boasts he has made."
