L. Pet. G.B. New York 54 33 .621 — By JOE REICHLER Associated Tress Sports Writer Relief specialist Stu Miller, believed to have lost his mound magic a year ago, is up to his old tricks and breathing new life into the Baltimore Orioles' American League pennant aspirations. The Butterfly Man, who earned his nickname because of the way he confounded National League batters with his tantalizing slow curves, was traded to Baltimore last .winter by the San Francisco Giants who palmed him off as all washed up. This error in judgment may have cost the Giants a second straight championship. Little Stu las never been belter. Now in his llth year in the big eagues, the 34-year-old riglit- lander is still befuddling enemy batters and bailing out his team- males with spectacular rescue work. Miller came through with another clutch relief performance Tuesday night helping Milt Pappas and the Orioles sew up a 5-2 victory over tho Detroit Tigers. II was his ninth emergency in the last 14 days and his sevenlh save in that span, during which he was .credited with one of the 10 Oriole victories. The triumph boosted the Orioles to within one percentage point of fourth-place Minnesota and just a half game behind the second-place Boston Red Sox, who trail the front-running New York Yankees by six lengths. In other American Leagui games, Kansas City bombed Bos ton 11-0, Washington defeated Chi cago 3-1 and Los Angeles nippec Cleveland 2-1. Rain washed ou the Yankee-Twins contest in Min ncsota, halting play while thi league leaders were at bat in Ih second inning. It was a busy day in the Nation al League where the Chicag Cubs climbed to within 5Vi game of front-running Los Angeles b By JIM HACKUOM/tN Associated Press Sports Writer A billiant left-handed pitcher sparking a pennant drive and a rangy slugger on a cltig in the throes of critical slump continue as the hottest items in the National League. Sandy Koutax ot the Los Angeles Dodgers and Willie McCovey of the San Francisco Giants, each starred again Tuesday night in doubleheader splits. Koutax fired his ninth straight victory and 16th of the season at Philadelphia, going six perfect innings and finishing with n six-hitter in a 5-2 vclory. The Phils rebounded against the first-place Dodgers in the second game romping 10-2 with a 12-hit attack led by Johnny Callison. McCovey belted a homer in each game at Pittsburgh, extending his hitting streak to 21. games and his homer total to 28, and won the opener 3-2 with a two- out homer in the ninth inning. Then the Giants dropper the second game, 3-2, falling into loui'lh place with the seventh loss in their lust nine games. Chicago's runner-up Cubs edged to within 5>/ a lengths of. the top, taking Milwaukee 1-0 on a four- pitcher shutout and Ken Hubbs' homer. St. Louis moved into sole possession of third, nipping Cincinnati 5-4 on a 10th inning squeeze bunt by Tim McCarver and Bobby Shantz's fine relief pitching. New York's last-place Mcts clipped Houston 4-3 with a ninth-inning run in the oilier NL game. In American League action — Kansas City routed Boston 11-0; Washington beat the Chicago White Sox 3-1; Baltimore knocked off Detroit 5-2; and the Los Angeles Angels tripped Cleveland 2-1. New York's pace-setting Yankees and the Twins were rained out at Minnesota. Koutax, gunning for his fourth straight shutout and 10th of the year, retired the first 18 Phils in order as the Dodgers built a 5-( cushion. But Tony Taylor nlckec Koufax for a leadoff double in the seventh and eventually scored on Tony Gonzalez's sacrifice fly for the first run oft the star left> in 34 innings. Doubles by Don Hoalc and Earl Averill gave the Phils another run in the eighth. The Dodgers got their five runs and 12 hits off loser Art. Mahat- fey arid ,Chris Short, with Wally VToori socking a homer and 'Jim Jilliam two doubles. Callison walloped two homers ind .two singles in the second game, which the Phillies wrapped up with three runs in the first off Nick Willhite and four more in ,he third against Ed Roebuck. Dallas Green went the distance for Philadelphia. McCovey, who has totaled 14 homers during his 21-game hitting string, connected in the top of "the nintli hi the opener at Pittsburgh' against Don Cardwell. Willie Mays and Orlando Cepeda also homered for the Giants as they ended the Pirates' winning streak at live. McCovey sent San Francisco off winging in the second game with a first-inning homer, and tied it at 2-2 with a run-scoring single in the third. But the Pirates got the clincher in the .fifth on Bill Virdon's triple and Roberto Clemente's single. Don Schwall was the winning pitcher, with Al McBean again providing strong relief, nnd Jack Sanford lost his fifth in a row. Bob Buhl of the Cubs checked the Braves without a hit until Hank Aaron doubled with two away in the seventh inning at Chicago. He gave way to the heat and humidity in the eighth, and Don Elston, Dick Lemay and Lindy McDaniel limited Milwaukee to one hit the rest of the way.

This was the conclusion of the squad after watching movies of last year's game when the Packers grabbed a 42-20 decision with a, fourth quarter burst. Halfback Larry Glueck of Villanova said "pass defense is the thing. We've got to try not to let them get that easy touchdown. That's what broke down the All- Stars in 1962." Tackle Don Brumm of Purdue felt Ihe Packers didn't push the All-Star line around. "It was their experience that won the game last year," said Brumm. "But we have lo be aggressive and have the desire. The job can be done." CINCINNATI (AP) — Old fashioned baseball strategy — the squeeze bunt and the strikeout pitch—propelled the St. Louis Cardinals to a 5-4 victory over the Cincinnati Reds in 10 innings Tuesday night. Catcher Tim McCarver dropped a squeeze bunt to score Bill White from third base with the winning run in the top of the 10th inning. The pitching victory went to Bobby Shantz (4-2).
