ALTON , JUL¥ 10,1963 Amazin Sparks NL to 5-3 Victory CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP)-ft's a good thing Willie Mays was there. AVillte was not the whole show. Me had help ih leading the National League to a 5-3 all-star victory over thfe American League Tuesday, But without the brilliant San Francisco center fielder, the 34th All-Star show would have been a bust. First of all, only 44,160 paying customers attended, filling about half of the huge Municipal Stadium. The players and club owners were keenly disappointed. Conservative estimates had been (of between 60,000 and 70,000. The customers also were disappointed but for another reason. They had paid $6 and $8 a ticket to see the greatest National League stars, some of them for and enemy batters with reckless abandon; and Juan Marichal, San Francisco's superb young right- handed star who recently defeated Spahn in a spectacular IB-inning 1-0 duel. What they saw was a lackluster game with routine plays, fail- pitching, mediocre fielding and somewhat less than robust hitting. the first time. But they never got ['flip biggest hit was a double by to sec Sandy Koufnx, the senior the American League's Albir Pear- circuit's best pitcher; Warren Son, the littlest All-Star of them Spahn. who keeps on defying age!all. NEW THIRD SACKER? CLEVELAND — Frank Malzone, Radatz, Red Sox pitcher and center is The 'National League scored the tie-breaking run without the aid of a hit, the run crossing the plate when New York Yankee Joe Pep- itonc chose to make an unassisted out at first instead of throwing to the plate. The National League managed only six hits, and four of those were scratchy. The American League had 11 hits but also nine strikeouts and Bobby Richardson, another Yankee, had the misfortune to hit into two double plays. The little second baseman, usually sure-handed missed a Ihrow by third baseman Frank Malzone which led to a run. The biggest noise came when the fans booed whenever a Yankee came to bat. Unfortunately, the Yankee contingent did little to cover itself with glory. Pepl- tone, the only American Leaguer to go all the way, went 0 for 4 and struck out twice. Richardson hit into four outs in two times s\t bat. Only Jim Bouton, the young pitcher, did well.

LOUIS (AP)—The St. Louis Cardinals, the best hitting team in baseball, probably hope the All-Star break has helped them find their batting eyes after a near-disasterous road trip. The Cardinals will bring a .274 team batting average into a twi- night double header Thursday against the Milwaukee Braves. But in their pre All-Star game ' trip, the Cardinals managed a meager .215 average which gave them just three victories in 11 games. They scored only 37 runs, and 16 of them came in two games. The disasters of travel, which dropped St. Louis from first to fourth place, 4V-! games out, have been prevalent all year. The team has hit just .243 on the road while winning only 2 2of 45 contests. At home, where they will meel the Braves in four games ant the Chicago Cubs in three, the Cardinals are 24-15 with a robust .310 average. "I don't know why we do so much better here," said Manager Johnny Keane. "There shouldn't be such a difference!" Keane planned to put the team through a batting drill today in Ed Mathews Can't Figure Out Slump MILWAUKEE (AP)—The Milwaukee Braves' slumping Eddie Mathews, whose batting average has skidded more than 50 points in six weelfs, doesn't even want to pick up a baseball bat until regular season activity is resumed. The Braves, witli a three-day break for the All-Star game make their next start in a twi- night doubleheader with the Cardinals in St. Louis Thursday, but a batting drill was ordered -for today by Manager Bobby Bragan. Mathews, however, was given permission to skip it. "I'm not going to pick up a bat for the whole three days," said Mathews. "Maybe that will help." His average has slipped from .296 to .241 and Mathews said, "I'm so fouled up I don't know what to try next. I even foul off pitches that are right down the middle." The slugging third baseman m:ssed only his third All-Star gci me in nine years fuesday. When the Braves return to action, they will be facing the toughest part of their schedule Their next 25 games will all be with teams now in the first division. Immediately ahead of the sixth- place Braves are three-game series with the Cardinals, Cubs and Reds. The Braves have been playing their best of the season, winnin? five of their last six games and taking seven of 11 in the first portion of a road trip. Ma/or league!

Only games scheduled By TOM KEEOY ST. ANNES, England (AP) Supremely fit and confident, Arnold Palmer led a field of 120 into the first round of the 72-hole British Open golf championship today and again he was the man to beat. Determined to win his third straight British title, the Latrobe Pa. professional polished his game to almost perfect pitch in practice and brought it to a culminating four under par 66 Tuesday. That performance simply cemented his role as 2 to 1 favorite. "I like it here and I am playing well," said Palmer in the understatement of the week. His principal rivals, Jack Nicklaus, Phil Rodgers and South Africa's Gary Player, each conceded that Palmer has never hit the ball better than right now. "His driving is remarkable," R'idgers said. Palmer said he concentrated especially • on driving for this exacting 6,757-yard par 70 seaside links. He rebuilt his driver over the weekend, replating and re-winding with a craftsmanship that fascinated the local pro shop. The effort paid off. Palmer conquered high winds on the long and treacherous back nine while Nicklaus with his high, soaring shots missed 10 fairways in his fii?al practice round. The U.S. Masters' champion, however, still was a second favorite at 5 to 1. I've never seen Arnold hit tee shots .better," said Nicklaus in 'open candor, "and you know how ho can putt." Palnier was a midday starter, teeing off with 24-year-old John Sharkey, an up and coming Eng- Irh professional. Nicklaus followed later, playing with Ross Whitehead of England.
