Section 2 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH Snort* Amusement* Established Jatiuary 15,1836. ALTON, ILL., SATURDAY, JULY 6,1963 7c Per Copy Member of The Associated Ptm Cards Lose, Drop to Fourth, 3i Games Out Howard's HR, Podres Put Dodgers Up By 3; Cubs Win Associated Press Siwrts Writer Chuck I-Illfer was hitting .185. Jim Duffalo hadn't won since the third day of tho season. Together they gave Snn Francisco a G-5, 11-lnnlng victory over St. Louis Friday night, becoming the latest members of a growing group giving the Cardinals tho bird in the National League pennant scramble. Miller slapped a single in the llth to drive in the lie-breaking run while Duffalo staggered through two innings of relief pitch- nng—despite issuing four walks— to post his first victory since April 10 and send the Cardinals' down to their sixth consecutive loss, A week ago, the Cardinals were on tho top perch, !'/& games in front. Now they've dropped to fourth place, 3'/6 games back of the pacesetl.lng Los Angeles Dodgers, who whipped Cincinnati 1-0 on Frank Howard's homer and two-hit pitching by Johnny Podres. The Chicago Cubs, three games behind the Dodgers, look over second place with a 3-2, 11-lnnlng decision over Philadelphia. Houston defeated Milwaukee 4-2 and Pittsburgh handed the New York Mots their eighth loss in a row, 34. The third-place Giants' climaxed an uphill struggle when Miller singled off loser Ed Bnuta, 3-3, following a leadoff single by Jose Pagan and a sacrifice. Willie McCovey's two-run homer, his 2tst, had provided a 4-3 lead in the fifth, but the Giants needed Harvey Kuenn's ninth-inning run- producing single to tie the Cardinals and send it into extra innings. Bill White homered for St. Louis. Howard's 13lh homer, off Jim O'Toole in the seventh inning, brought Podres' record to 6-6. In his last two starts, Podres has allowed only seven hits and one run, striking out 16 while issuing only two walks. Against the Reds, Podres allowed only singles by Tommy Haper in the fourth and Johnny Edwards in the sixlh and kept Cincinnati from getting a runner to second base. O'Toole touched for six hits, lost his third in a row and is 13-G. The Cubs won in the llth when Ernie Banks doubled, took third on a wild pitch by Johnny Klippstein and scored on Andre Rodgers' sacrifice fly. Ron Santo sin gled home the tying run for Chicago after the Phillies moved ahead 2-1 on Ruben Amaro's homer, the first for the .170 hitler since 1961. Lindy McDaniel, 5-2, was the winner in relief oi Larry Jackson. Klippstein is 3-4. Uy THE ASSOCIATED I'RESS American Luitguo W. L. Pet. G.B.

(AP Wirephoto) Houk Will Attempt To Employ As Many Stars As Possible CLEVELAND (AP) - Manager Ralph Houk wants the American League to win Ihe All-Star battle with the National League here Tuesday, but he also wants as many players as possible to get into action. "The fans come to see all these fine players in action," said Houk, who pilots Ihe New York Yankees. "In fact, I don't think you can weaken the team by substituting. All the players picked are good and can do the job." Houk was peppered with questions about the All-Star Game as he brought the Yankees here for a four-game series with the Indians. What did lie think ol Ihe beef by Boston first baseman Dick Stuart? Why wasn't New York's Whitey Ford chosen? Why was Roger Maris of the Yankees passed over? Why was Cleveland pitcher Jim (M u d c a t) Grant picked rather than Jack Kralick of the Indians? "You have to remember that most of these picks were made a couple of weeks ago," said Houk. At that time, Jim Boulon and not Whitey was the logical choice from our club. "And I tried to take only one pitcher from a team if possible, Jim Grant is a good situation pitcher. He has that real good fast ball a lot of the time. "A right-handed pitcher like htm should help us against that Nu tionnl League lineup." Houk said that if he had picked Marls, he would have had to omit Bob Allison of Minnesota, who has been hilling and fielding well. Stuart was angered because he was left off the All-Star Jeam, although he was the second choice of the players behind starting first sacker Joe Pepitone of New York. Houk picked Norm Siebern of Kansas Cily because a player was needed from Ihe Athletics. Stuart called Houk a "busher." and a "third-string catcher" who got the job of managing Ihe* Yankees because Casey Stengel was fired. "I can understand Stuart being unhappy," said Houk. "It's an honor to make the team. You have to pick at least one player from each team and that causes some problems. I Iried ... in all possible cases lo selecl the second man in the balloting." Houk admitted that he was a third-string catcher with New York from 19474954, but added with a laugh: "But I was the world's richest third-string catcher," The manager said he will name his batting order Monday, along with the starting pitcher, FIGHT RESULTS By TI1K ASSOCIATE!)

(AP Wirephoto) JohnnyPodres'Aches Forgotten After Win LOS ANGELES (AP)—A couple of weeks ago, Johnny Podres was ,n such desparate need of quick relief that he might have been mistaken for the stricken star of a television aspirin commercial. In two consecutive starts, the 30-year-old left-hander had to be 'elieved in the first inning. Trou- oled nearly every season by a sore back, he was now bothered by a pain in his left arm. It looked as though the Los An- ;eles Dodgers might have to find a permanent replacement for him n their starting pitching rotation. But, before they could find the replacement, Podres found him- MINOR LEAGUES By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS International League Jacksonville 6, Richmond 2 Buffalo S, Toronto 4 Rochester 3, Columbus 1 Syracuse 9, Indianapolis 2 Arkansas 6, Atlanta 1 Pacific Coast League Dallas-Fort Worth 6-11, Seattle 2-1 Oklahoma City 11, Tai-oma 0 Salt Lake City 4, Portland 1 Hawaii 3, Spokane 0 San Diego 10, Denver 7 DRAG RACES SUNDAY, July 7th ' FUEL vs. GAS Stolneggur AA/F.D. from Phoenix, Ariz.

Friday night, when the Dodgers increased their National League lead to three games by drJeating Cincinnati 1-0, Podres was even better.

Frank Howard accounted for the only run of the night with a 400- fool homer off Jim O'Toole in the seventh inning. "After Frank struck out in the fourth inning," Podres said later, "he came over and told me: 'John, hold 'em right there. I'll get a run for you.'
