PAtJBTWfiLVfi ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH FRIDAY* JULY 26, 1903 S His Surge EtmblesTeatti ToTakeTiiird fey JOB KEtCttLEn Asitoefnted Press Sports Wfltef It'mky be too early yet to tel Whether Willie Mays, admittedly ft streak hitter, is on one of his patented power displays. If he is, the Sari Francisco Gi ants may yet give Los Angeles a run for the National League pen want. Who knows? They may even duplicate last year's late season surge when they forced the Dodg ers into a play-off and then beai them for the championship. Willie, in the last five games has cracked nine hits in 18 times at bat. Four of his hits have been home runs and he has driven in nine runs during that span. The center fielder also has been his brilliant self in the field and on the bases. Consequently, the Giants won four of those five. Mays crashed a home run, double and single Thursday-and baited in half his team's rune in their 8-6 triumph over the New York Mets. It was New York's 19th straight road defeat, matching the modern major leaguue record for futility set by the Philadelphia Athletics of 1916. The victory, third straight over the hapless Mets, boosted the Gi ants into third place, a half game in front of the Chicago Cubs and 7% lengths behind the league- leading Dodgers. Pittsburgh tripped up the Dodgers 6-2 and Cincinnati shaded the Cubs 3-2. Second-plage St. Louis defeated Milwaukee 3-1 and Hous ton shut out Philadelphia 3-0. Sandy Koufax, sensational Dodger southpaw, struck out 12 in six •innings but the Pirates pasted his offerings for eight hits, including a three-run homer by Roberto Clemente that spelled his fourth defeat. Koufax was seeking his 17th victory. Superb relief pitching by Tommie Sisk helped Pittsburgh salvage the last of the three-game set. Lew Burdette Whips JL Former Mates, 3-1 PARDON MY ELBOW DETROIT — Chicago White Sox outfielder Floyd Robinson (3) would appear from the angle of this picture to be giving the elbow to Detroit Tigers third- baseman Bubba Phillips as lie pulled in with triple in the 2nd inning of game at Detroit Thursday. Actually the two did collide on the base as Phillips waited for the throw from shortstop Dick McAuliffe. Robinson hit the left field fence with his drive and it bounded back to the shortstop. (AP Wirephoto) Yankees Lose More Than Just a Game Lew Burdette, traded last month to St. Louis, not only had the satisfaction of beating his old Milwaukee team but outpitched an old friend in Warren Spahn. It was the first mound meeting of the ex-roommates after an 11-year companionship on the Braves. Burdette, 36, gave up five hits, struck out two and walked none. Spahn, 42, allowed eight hits, struck out one and walked none. By BOB GREEN Associated Press Sports Writer The New York Yankees lost a all game. Which doesn't really urt.

Immediately after the Yankees' 5-0 loss to the Los Angeles Angels Thursday, Manager Ralph Houk announced that Mantle has a loose cartilage in his left knee. "The damn thing could tighten up in three days," Houk said. "Or it could be a month. Or it could be longer." The Angels' Ken McBride cooled i off the defending world champions in finp shape Thursday limiting them to three scattered singles in the shutout. Second-place Chicago edged Detroit 4-3 and lopped a full game off the Yanks American League margin, which stands at a healthy eight games. Kansas City blanked Boston 2-0, Baltimore beat Washington 4-2 and Cleveland edged Minnesota 3-2 in the others. In the National League, Pittsburgh snapped Sandy Koufax' nine-game Dodger Stadium winning streak 6-2, St. Louis knocked off Milwaukee 3-1, Cincinnati trimmed Chicago 3-2, Houston shut out Philadelphia 3-0 and San Francisco beat the New York Mets again, 8-6. McBride needed only 96 pitches in recording his third victory of the season over the Yanks. Nellie Fox drove in three runs with a pair of singles and scored another one to account for all the White Sox runs against Detroit. Don Wert hit a three-run homer for the losers. John Powell had a two-run homer, John Orsino singled in two more and Robin Roberts recorded his 252nd major league victory in the Orioles' triumph over the Senators. Baltimore now has beaten Washington 11 times in 12 meetings this season. Kansas City's surprising Athletics got only three hits off Bos- City 3 gait Lake City 5, Tacoma g r Pftljtoi-Foil Worth 5, San Diego ton's Bill Monbouquette but turned two of them into runs while Ed Rakow, Bill Fischer and John Wyatt blanked the Red Sox on six hits. Willie Kirkland settled things for Cleveland, stroking a three-ran eighth-inning homer, bringing the Indians from behind a 2-0 deficit and beating Minnesota.

Ho was satisfied with a job well done, but he wasn't gloating. Lew Burdelte, traded to St. Louis last month after more than 10 years in Milwaukee, had mixed emotions Thursday after hurling the Cardinals to a 3-1 victory in a duel with old sidekick Warren Spahn. "I didn't necessarily enjoy pitching against them, especially against the best friend I've ever had," Burdette said soberly after a brilliant five-hit performance. "I actually didn't like the idea," he added. "But -I have a job to do and I just went out there and did my best. No one likes to win more than I do, but there's no fun in beating an old buddy like Spahnie." In the Milwaukee clubhouse, the 42-year-old Spahn accepted his defeat philosophically, satisfied that an ailing left elbow was sound again. The start was ' his first since he blanked Houston 4-0 July 7. "I'm very much satisfied, although not with the final score," Spahn said. "My arm didn't trouble me at all and I don't think I'll have any more problems. I'm ready to take my turn again and I'm happy." Before taking the field for pre- ;ame warm-up throws, Spahn whispered to Joe Torre. "I'm a little nervous." However, he referred to liis elbow — not to opposing his old roommate and the right-handed half of the 1-2 punch which made the Braves a power for many years and produced pennants in 1957 and '58. ' "I had too many things on my mind to think much about facing Lew," Spahn said. "I hadn't pitched for 15 days and I had to prove to myself that I could pitch again. However, I knew I wasn't in for an easy day. "When the chips are down, Lew is tough, and I knew he would be against us. Lew just proved once again what a great competitor he is." Spahn, who gave up eight hits before he was lifted for a pinch batter in the eighth, was charged with his fifth loss against 12 victories. A crowd of 22 r 231, including 15,019 paid, turned out for the first meeting on the mound between Spahn and Burdette. Although still wearing his old Braves' number, Lew looked a little strange in the gray flannels of a visiting player. His fidgety actions, however, were the samp as during 179 victories, plus three triumphs in the 1957 World Series, for Milwaukee. Bears Edge Stars, 13-12 RENSSELAEP, Ind. (AP)—The college All-Stars won their football spurs in a scrimmage with the Chicago Bears, and after a little more sharpening at their Northwestern University camp, they should be ready to face the Green Bay Packers in Soldier Field Aug. 2. In the scrimmage on the St. Joseph's College field Thursday, the Bears won 13-12. There were no punts or kickoffs in the match, which ended when each team ran off 72 offensive plays. All-Star Head Coach Otto Graham says his gridders need more improvement before taking on the National Football League champion Packers, but he seemed pleased with the scrimmage. The collegians' defense and pass protection were bright spots. They got away 36 passes and completed 24 for 239 yards. U. S. Track Athletes Ready to Make Amends WARSAW, (AP) — American track stars, preparing for the meet with Poland today and Saturday, are wondering whether the object of these international exercises is to make friends or win. "It's both," said U. S, Coach Payton Jordan of Stanford. "But I think the sight - seeing should come after the competition." Jordan feels that the U. S. team, which barely squeaked by in Moscow in the men's competition and was badly beaten in the women's meet, probably should fly into a country only a few hours before 'a meet, and stay afterward for sight-seeing and socitfl functions. "The team must arrive either a week before the meet, or one day before," said Dan Ferris, 75- year-old secretary - emeritus of the AAU, who did mach ol the ne gotiating for the meets in Eastern Europe. All your intestinal upsets occur after the first 48 hours, and clear up in four or five days. There have been complaints that we came into a country too late, and others that we came too early. One way works one time and one way another." . The meet with Poland will be a good test. The American team Mexico Opens Davis Action VANCOUVER, B.C. (AP)—Mexico's heavily favored Davis Cup team opens with its ace, Rafael Osuna, today in its first-round American Zone match against Canada. Thursday's draw put Osuna against Francois Godbout and Antonio Palafox against Harry Fail* luier in the opening singles, to he distress of Canadian captain Jini Macken. Macken had hoped Godbout, his No. 1 player, would draw Palafox, ;iving Canada a better chance at an opening-day split-. Mexican Captain Pancho Contrerras intends to stick with Osuna and Palafox, who carried the team to the Challenge Round against ..Australia last year, throughout the best-of-5 series that continues through Sunday. came here Monday determined to wipe out the relatively poor showing in Moscow. Since arriving they have trained, but they also have thronged the Warsaw streets in search of souvenirs, joked with Polish kids and Polish runners and gobbled milk shakes at the American Embassy. If their pre-meet stay in Warsaw hasn't rubbed the edge off they should hand the Poles a good licking in the two-day meet. The Yankees are favored to take 14 ol the 20 events. They won 12 of 22 in Moscow, an all-time low. Last year, the American men won at Chicago 131-81. The polish girls won 61-45. The men won 15 of 20 events, the girls 4 of 10. Mantle Could Miss Season With Injury NEW YORK (AP) - "I don't know, Mickey doesn't know, the doctors don't know," Ralph Honk, New York Yankee manager, said of the possible return of injured Mickey Mantle, troubled anew with a leg ailment. He could be out for the year. Mantle, sidelined with a broken bone in his left foot since June 5, now is suffering from a loose cartilage in the left knee. There is no assurance he will be able to play again this season. "The damn thing could tighten up in three days," Houk said Thursday, "or it could be a month. Or it could be longer." Officially, his status is "indefinite." "We don't want to minimize Jt (the extent of the injury)," Houk said. "We just want to take the pressure off him. We don't know when he might play." , Dr. Sidney Gaynor, the Yankee team physician, said no immediate operation is planned, Mantle, a three-time Most Valuable Player and the Yankee team leader, broke the bone in his foot When lie tangled his spikes in a wire fence in Baltimore while chasing a fly ball, Houk said it is possible that he suffered the cartilage injury at the same time. CHICAGO (AP)—Lew Burdelte, in a pitching duel with his old sidekick Warren Spaltn, pitched the St. Louis Cardinals tb a 3-1 victory over,." ihe Milwaukee Braves Thursday 'night in Milwaukee. The Cardinal righthander, facing Spahn for the [irst lime since the Braves tradecl him to St, Louis last month after more than 10 years In Milwaukee, gave his ex- teammates only five hits and no walks. The victory was Burdette's second in five decisions with St. Louis and evened his season record at 8-8. Spahn, sidelined since July 7 with a sore elbow, was no soft touch as he lost his fifth game against 12 victories. He gave up eight hits and one of the Cardinnl runs was unearned. The Cardinalsv scored in the first on singles by Curt Flood and Dick Groat and an infielc out. Dennis Menke's double and Hank Aaron's single tied the score in the bottom Half of the inning, but from then on, it was Burdette and the Cardinals. Bill White doubled and scored on Stan MusiaPs hit in'the fourth. An error put Julian Javier on and Tim McCarver singled home the final run. Burdette, who won 179 games for the Braves and roomed with Spahn on the road for most of his 11-year career with them, retired 12 straight batters over one stretch before Spahn singled in the sixth. The Cardinals, winners of six of their last eight games, move to Chicago today. Bob Gibson (11-4) will bid for his 10th victory in his last 11 outings. Ex-Cardinal Paul Toth (3-5) will go for the Cubs. HEY, QUIT MAKHLEIIEAD, Mass. — Everything was on hand except the wind at iUarblehead's Race Week activities yesterday.
