Hi the (Current .winning streak, Groat hat 14 hlfc In 18 trips to the plate,' fairing his National League-leading average fmm .320 to a he/ly .343. He topped the league with a .325 mark and earned Most Valuable Player hon ors In leading the Pittsburgh Pirates to the pennant and the World Series championship in 1960. "Hie hits, are finding the holes and I'll lake them," Groal; said. "I'm hitting the'ball as well as T ever did, bill it's too early to think about another batting title. The average can go down a lot faster than It goes up." The 32-yeaiM)ld Groat wielded his bat in typical fashion in the opener of a three-gume series with the braves. In the first inning, he grounded a single through (lie hole to'right and scored a run. He grounded but to short in the third, singled to left in the fifth and then' looped another single to right in the sixth. He finished, by grounding a single to right, driving in a run, in the eighth. The Cardinals obtained Groat from the Pirates last fall as rumors persisted in Pittsburgh that he had slowed down too much to continue as a shortstop. _, ^ Year With Lards CATCHER IN AGONY BOSTON— Doc Edwards, Kansas City catcher drops to Ills knees in agony after being hit by foul tip off the bat of Frank Mai/one, Red Sox third baseman, in ninth inning of their game at Boston last night.

(AP Wirephoto) Lefthanders Tough Against Milwaukee MILWAUKEE (AP) — It's a ?ood tiling for the Milwaukee Braves the National League isn't Pro Bowlers Smith's Close Finish Here Moves Him Nearer Leaders AKRON, Ohio — Another close finish for Harry Smith, a runner- up spot at the Alton, 111. Professional Bowlers Association Open, has moved the Baltimore kegler to .within an eyelash of both Andy MarZtch and Dick Weber in the PBA money standings race. A second place finish and a check for $1,500 moved Smith past the $20,000 mark, while front running Marzich of Long Beach, Calif., snapped out of a lethargic month to all a fifth place check of $1,000 to his total which now stands at $23,568 for the year. St. Louis' Dick Weber, who baa cashed In every tournament this summer, nearly missed out at Alton, b u t finished 24th anl picked up only $275, and was (eni|>oruri- ly halted In his effort to catch Marzich. \ Thus, at the end, of 24 tournaments, Marzich is still leading with the veterans, Weber and Smith breathing down his neck. Californian Vern Downing's victory at Alton, moved him into 16th place in the money standings, with a total of $9,875 for the year. Jim St. Jolin of Chicago and Earl Johnson of Minneapolis, in fourth and fifth place in the standings; both failed to. cash in Alton, but two other St. Louisans, Tom Hennessey and; Gienn Allison, finished sixth and eighth, and the Mississippi river city still boasts five keglers among the top 20.

Fourteen of the 25 players with he Detroit Tigers attended col- ege. loaded with .left-handed pitching. The Braves collapse at the virtual sight of a starting southpaw. The St, Louis Cardinals opened with left-handed Ray Sadecki at County Stadium Tuesday night. The Braves managed to, get him out in favor yof a right-hander, but by that time they were in a state of numbness and dropped a 5-1 decision before a crowd of 11,278. With relief help from rookie Ron Taylor, Sadecki evened his record at 6-6 and became the 18th left-hander to defeat the Braves this year. Milwaukee owns just seven triumphs over southpaws. The young tandem of Sadecki and Taylor teammed to hold the Braves to four hits, including n pair of doubles and a single by Eddie Mathews, who broke out of a slump, and Del Crandall's third homer. The Braves employed five pitchers with little success as the Cards rapped • out 14 hits. Dick Groat had four singles, and Curt Flood, Bill White,' Charlie James and Gary Kalb two hits each. The Braves plan to send Denny Lemaster, holder of a 5-5 record, against the Cards' Ernie Broglio tonight. Broglio has a 10-6 mark. Dartmouth placekicker Bill Wellstead kicked. 48 of Maumee, Ohio, points last season. Twenty-one points resulted on seven field goals. Top-Seeded Girls Advance In Tennis Meet LAKE BLUFT, 111.

Wisconsin cured two litlerbugs who had tossed beer cans along the highway by fining them and putting them to work picking up after other Jitterbugs. The two men went to work on a i-oad and collected 680 discarded beer cans, 170 beer bottles and sundry other debris. When they reappeared in coUrt their fines of $25 were returned. Beer cans and bottles are a too frequent sight along our highways. We have noticed them many times along our scenic McAdams Highway along Alton Lake. The discarded cans and bottles are also a driving hazard. It certainly isn't a credit to anyone to be labled a Jitterbug. Do your share in not tossing anything out of your car even such small items as chewing gum and candy wrappers. Bull Shoals Trip The fish were biting at Bull Shoals Lak6 at Crow Barnes Resort, Bull Shoals, Ark., last weekend, reported Maurice (R e d) Kennedy, 3024 Brown St. He, his wife and son, Richard 10, went there with Mr. and Mrs. Henry Bauer, 3020 Brown St., and Bauer's sister, Louise Schreiber. The latter group remained there this week and will be re-joined by the Kennedy's this weekend. Kennedy landed a bass, his wife landed a walleye and his son landed a bluegill all of good eating size. They saw two other anglers bring in a string of 37 white bass. "We drove 640 miles round trip to take those three fish," Kennedy commented. "I hesitate to consider what they cost. I used my electronic fish finder which to locate the fish but it didn't make :hem bite." While on a dock, Kennedy heard at least 50 bluegill 'in the water over his fish finder. He handed it to a bystander to hear the fish sounds. Then little Richard tossed a piece of bread in the water. The resulting noise in the ear phones of the fish swarming to the bread nearly deafened the bystander. Population A movement is underway pri- vately financed (o determine If the bald eagle is decreasing in population or Is merely retreating into the wilds away from human annoyances. Three years ago the National Atidubon Societies of. America and Canada look an ex- IcMisive survey to learn' more about the bnld eagle, its habitat and Imhits. The count WHS 3,807 bald eagles in United State and 515 active nests. Canada located about 350 active nests. The bald eagles arc not so com m on throughout the United Stales. There is a concentration of them near Grafton and along the Illinois River. It is possible to drive along the higli- way and see them soaring over the Illinois River. We have seen them many times while boating and hunting. The birds are un- af m id and have remained perched high in a tree while we walked underneath.

Williams, however, failed to hit a home ran and meekly bounced out to end the game opening a long home stand. The Cubs will send Dick Ellsworth (13-7) against Bob Purkey (4-5) today in the second of the three game series. Opening a long raod stand, the White Sox dropped a twi-nigh 1 doubleheader to Detroit, 5-1 anc 6-4.

Phillips issued an intentional walk and then gave up an unintentional walk to load the bases. Norm Cash followed with a grand slam home run to wrap up the opener. The Sox broke ahead in the nightcap 1-0 but Detroit quickly scored three runs to take the lead and stay in front the rest of the way.
