Exactly 30 years—to the day- after Hubbell, the original Meal Ticket, pitched his greatest game by hurling the Giants to a 1-0, 18- nning triumph over St. Louis, Marichal came up with an amaz- ngly similar performance in a 1-0,16-inning victory over Milwaukee Tuesday night. Marichal, a strong-armed right- hander who earlier this season pitched a no-hitter, battled for 4 lours and 10 minutes with Braves' starter Warren Spahn, the 42- year-old left-hander. Then, Willie Mays hit one out of Candlestick Park with one out in the last of the 16th, bringing a dramatic and sudden ending to one of baseball's greatest pitching battles. The struggle also stole th Na- .ional League spotlight from the ^os Angeles Dodgers, who took over first place from St. Louis by beating the Cardinals 1-0 on Don Drysdale five-hit pitching and Ron iFairly's run-scoring single. The triumph moved .the Dodgers out front by one-half game over the Cardinals, with the third- place Giants another one-half game back. Fourth-place Cincinnati crept to within 2,Vz games of the top as Gordy Coleman's tie- breaking two-run single carried the Reds to a 6-4 decision over Houston. The fifth-place Chicago Cubs downed the New York Mets 4-1 and Pittsburgh edged Philadelphia 3-2. • •- , • : 'GOLFING k NOTES <*Th» Marichal, bringing his record to 13-3 with his ninth straight victory, scattered eight hits and struck out 10.

Jackson threw Buhl's bunt away in the second after An- nings) dre Rodgers had singled, and a sacrifice fly by Lou Brock, a single by Ellis Burton' and Billy Williams' double did the rest of the damage.

In the upper picture, Baltimore Imposes Own Fining System BALTIMORE (AP)—The Baltimore Orioles, apparently tired of their own mistakes, have decided to clamp down on violators with self-imposed fines. A check list of 25 violations- six of them for pitchers alone and 19 for everyone on the squad- went into effect Tuesday. The fines range from $1 to $5. "We don't know if it will improve our play or not," said Mike McCormick, the team's player representative and one of four players who drew up the regulations. "But' it will make all of us more conscious of our jobs. It's possible some of us haven't been thinking baseball as much as we should." Almost as soon as the plan became operative, Manager Billy Hitchcock was charged with the first offense when he walked into the clubhouse at 5:12 p.m. That's 12 minutes late, according to rule 19 which says everyone should Jacksonville at Columbus, rain report three hours before a .home Atlanta 6, Indianapolis 5 (10 in- game.

The last violation adds the notation: "manager and coaches included." The Orioles, who have dropped 24 of their last 36 games, can be thankful the fines were noi made retroactive. •"If we had started this Monday night," Al Smith said, "we'd have $20 in the pot already."

Downing allowed only a bonne- ng single up the middle by Camlo Carreon with two out in the levetith Inning in pitching the wce-settlng Yankees to their fifth straight victory, a 3-0 triumph over the Chicago White Sox. The 19-year-old Morehead lost lis no-hit bid on Fred Whitfield's bud-hop single leading off the eighth inning but brought the Red Sox home over the Cleveland Indians, 64. The Twins scored their eighth myo In a row, whipping Detroit 7-4 behind the home run power of Bob Allison and Jim Hall. That victory shoved streaking Minne sota into second place, three games behind New York and one lalf game ahead of Chicago. In other AL games, sub Al Smith's hitting led Baltimore over Los Angeles 4-3 and Washington's Bennie Daniels posted his second victory in six days over Kansas Jlty, 7-2. The Yanks collected only their second victory in seven games this year with the White Sox and n the process defeated Ray Herbert, who had shut them out twice previously. Tony Kubek singled across the first Yankee run in the third and Hector Lopez gave Downing some working room with a two-run homer In the fifth. Morehead had a perfect gahie going al Cleveland until Tito Fran, cona walked with two otlt in the seventh and a no-hitter In the works until Whltfield led off the eighth with a grounder that glanced off a pebble over second baseman Chuck Schilling's head for a single. The only other hit off Morehead was a leadoff homer in the ninth by John Romano, just restored to (lie active list after being out five weeks with a broken hand. Allison ran his homer total to a league high of 20, connecting with one on in the third as the Twins broke a 1-1 tic at Detroit, and Hall belted a 430-foot IhrcR-run shot In the sixlh. Dick Stis-man was the winner, with help in the ninth from workhorse reliever Bill Dailey, and Bill Faul was the loser. Smith, who replaced injured rookie outfielder Fred Valentine in the first inning at Baltimore, singled and scored in the second, singled home a run in the third, and doubled in the Orioles' deciding run in the seventh. Daniels, whose only two victories this season are over the nineties, turned in his first complete gnme in nine starts. The Senators settled things against losev Orlando Pena with three un-, named runs in the fifth on three Kansas City errors, a sacrifice and two bloop hits.
