Xl,fl5S>ll-J- Cards Stop Sin Cubs. 4-1 Gibson Fires Four-Hitter CHICAGO (APJ-The St. Louis Cardinals didn't have to reshuf- tle the deck to come up with an ace. They just waited patiently for the Cards to fall and out came Bob Gibson, who had been with them all the time. Gibson appears headed for a 20- game season after whipping the Chicago Cubs, 4-1, on four hits Friday. He Is 12-4. But the Cardinals must receive a share of the credit for sticking with the ex-Harlem Globetrotter. They expected him to head the St. Louis pitching staff alter ho finished strong for a 15-13 record last year. But he suffered a broken ankle In the final week of the season. The ankle still bothered him at the beginning of this year when he won only one ot his first four decisions. However, since then, he has rewarded the club's patience by clipping off 11 victories in his last 12 decisions. He has won his last live, including one that ended an eight-game Cardinal losing streak. The victory over the Cubs gave Gibson, who is considered one of the National League's hardest throwers, a triumph over every team in the circuit. He walked two, struck out four and the only Cub run came jn the second on a double by Ernie Banks and Ken Hubbs' single. Gibson allowed only one hit after that. Ken Boyer's 13th homer with a man on in the sixth broke a 1-1 tie and sent the Cardinals to their sixth triumph in seven starts. Singles by Julian Javier and Gary Kolb and Gibson's force out gave them a run in the second and Dick Groat singled home the final marker in the seventh. The Cardinals will pitch Curt Simmons (8-5) against the Cubs' Larry Jackson (11-8) in a game at Wrigley Field.

CITY (AP)—Kansas City says the American League should give it a chance to negotiate its lease proposals to owner Charles 0. Finley of the Athletics before making a decision on the A's franchise. In a letter to Joe Cronin, American League president, Mayor pro- tem Clark A. Ridpath said neither Finley nor the American League has made any effort to discuss with city officials "our side of the case." The proposals are for use of Municipal Stadium, the A's present home. In a recent meeting of league owners in Cleveland, Finley com plained about the city's lease pro posals. DiMag Is Still Baseball Hero Mrs. McHatton BALTIMORE (AP) — For Joe DIMaggio, even Yankee-hating Baltimore fans make an excep tion.

Sing paeans for Warren palm, Make Marichal. a case for Juan Folley Meets Terrell in Garden Bout By MUKKAY ROSE Associated Prints Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP)—In the reign of King Sonny Listen I, a heavyweight doesn't necessarily disqualify himself because he can punch. Thus there is new hope for contenders Zora Folley and Ernie Terrell, a couple of tall, 200-pound- ers who meet in the television 10- •ounder at Madison Square Garden tonight. In the days when Floyd Patterson was champion and manager :us D'Amato had the final voice' on his opponents, heavyweight contenders with a wallop rarely ;ot a chance to take pot shots at Lloyd's china chin. Liston prides himself on his ability to take a punch. Besides, he will be looking for eager opponents in the next couple of years. Folley never could get close to a title shot with Patterson even though he rated it on his record and ratings. This proved very discouraging for the Chandler, Ariz., boxer- puncher and he blew a fight now and then. It could be that at 31 the 6-foot-l Folley is over the hill. Folley's record is 63-6-3, including 35 knockouts. He is ranked fourth by Ring Magazine and seventh by the World Boxing Association. Terrell, 24, is more likely to become an interesting subject for Liston. The 6-foot-4 former Golden Gloves champion from Chicago beat high-ranked, hard-hitting Cleveland Williams in a return fight last April 13. This avenged a seventh-round knockout loss to Williams the year before. Ernie has won seven straight for a 30-4 record, including 16 knockouts. He is ranked ninth by Ring and eighth by the WBA. The bout will be telecast by ABC-TV starting at 10 p.m. EST. Rich Rollins Hit in Head NEW YORK (AP)—Third baseman Rich Rollins of the Minnesota Twins was reported in satisfactory condition in Lenox Hill Hospital today after being struck in the head by a sharp grounder in the fourth inning of Friday night's game at Yankee Stadium. Rollins was knocked unconscious by a smash off the bat of Hector Lopez which bounced off his left cheekbone and caromed over to second base on a fly. He suffered nothing more than a superficial injury and is under observation. He was batting .309 before the game. But don't ignore Bob Gibson when it comes time to cast your vote for National League pitcher of the year. Gibson doesn't have the glittering record of Koufax or Marichal iind he hasn't pitched as spectacularly as Spahn but there isn't a hotter pitcher in the league. The 27-year-old St. Louis right- hander pitched a four-hitter and posted his fifth straight victory Friday as the Cardinals defeated the Chicago Cubs 4-1 and closed to within five games of the first- place Los Angeles Dodgers, who dropped a 6-5 decision to Philadelphia. It was Gibson's llth victory in his last 12 decisions. He hasn't lost since May 19, when Cincinnati beat him 10-6. His season record is 12-4. San Francisco's third-place Giants also gained on the Dodgers with a 6-4 triumph over Pittsburgh. The Giants' fifth straight triumph advanced them to within ; games of the top. Cincinnati's Reds shellacked Milwaukee 11-1 and moved past the Cubs into fourth place, IVa games off the pace. Houston inflicted the 20th straight road defeat on New York's cellar-dwelling Mets, 7-3. The loss gave the Mets undisputed possession of the modern major league record. They had been tied with the 1916 Philadelphia Athletics at 19 road losses each. The New York Yankees maintained their eight-game lead in the American League with a 6-5 victory of the Minnesota Twins. Baltimore snapped its second- place tic with Chicago by beating the White Sox 6-0. Boston edged Los Angeles 6-5, Washington conquered Detroit 3-1 and Cleveland ended Kansas City's five-game winning streak 3-2. Ken Boycr paced the Cards nine-hit attack against formei Cardinals Paul Toth and Dick LeMay with a home run one single, driving in two runs. The homer was his 13th of the earn paign. Gibson has beaten every team in the league at least once. The only other pitchers to make thi cycle are the Cubs' Dick Ells worth and the Giants' Marichal Tony Taylor drove in five run- in the Phillies' narrow triumph over the Dodgers. Lefty Chris, Short allowed the Dodgers onl' five hits through seven innings hu needed help from Jack Baldschur in the eighth. It was Short's thirc victory in 11 decisions. Paper Torches Light Fennel Record Attempt By JIM BECKER Associated Press Sports Writer WARSAW, Poland (AP) — "I just wish we'd had a warm-up meet before we went to Moscow. This team is really jelling now," Pay ton Jordan, coach of the touring U.S. track and field team, said today. The American men, rebounding from the narrowest victory in history against the Russians last weekend, rolled it up on the Poles in the opener of the two-day meet Friday, 68-36. John Fennel of Miami, Fla., capped the performance in darkness with a world record leap in the pole vault. Fennel leaped an officially announced 5.10 meters, or 16 feet, S?i inches. Actually, he cleared the bar at 5.105 meters, or 16-9, but the metric measurement was rounded off to 5.10. An application will be made for a record at that height. The reason for all this centimeter-splitting was that Fennel set the present standard himself on July 13 in London with a leap Caseyville, Site * Of Softball Tourney that was announced there as 16 !%. But the metric equivalen vas listed as 5.098. Even Fennel didn't know th exact metric mark he made in -ondon. "They announced it only in fee and inches," he said. The vaulter tried to make th ivhole thing academic by goin for 17 feet but darkness fell o ultra-modern Tenth Anniversary Stadium, which is equipped wit almost everything but lights. Two automobiles were rushed i :rom the parking lot to cast thei ights on the scene and thousand of Poles made torches of rolle up newspapers. In this eerie sei ting, Fennel tried at 17 feet bu couldn't make it. Fennel's performance capped day when everything went rigl for the Americans. In all the Americans took nin victories in 10 events. The othe 10 events come off today. The American gals, humiliate in Moscow, snapped back too won two of five events and traile only 27-42 at the end of the fin day.

(AP Wirephoto) Orioles Beat Sox; Yanks Win as Usual By JIM HACKLEMAN Associated Press Sports Writer Five short weeks ago Billy, -litchcock's job as .Baltimore Orioles manager seemed in jeopardy. The club had plummeted !rom the top to sixth place in the American League within 10 days. Reports of dissension were ban died. Hitchcock was criticized as having lost control of the team and making all the wrong moves. But the Orioles began to fly high in July. Their latest winning string reached four games Friday night when t hey blanked the Chicago White Sox 6-0 behind Milt Pappas three-hit pitching, and they've climbed into second place—the highest they've been since June 10. New York's injury-ridden but 'ictory-prone Yankees maintained their commanding eight-game lead by clipping Minnesota 6-5 with the help of two unearned runs and neat relief pitching by Steve Hamilton. Boston ended a losing string at four games, beating the Los Angeles Angels 5-4 with a three-run sixth inning. Ken Retzer's two-run homer in the seventh carried Washington over Detroit 3-1, snapping a run of five Senator losses. Cleveland trimmed Kansas City 3-2, scoring the deciding run in the seventh inning on Moe Dra- bowsky's wild pitch. In the National League, Philadelphia shaded the Los Angeles Dodgers 6-5, St. Louis downed the Chicago Cubs 4-1, San Francisco beat Pittsburgh 6-4, Cincinnati Mets Lose 20th. Casey Fumes HOUSTON (AP)—Casey Stengel's Mets set a modern league record Friday night, topping by one the former mark of 19 road losses set by the Philadelphia Athletics in 1916. The Mets' 20th road defeat was a 7-3 clobbering by Bob Aspro- monle and the rest of the Houston Colts. "It's a bad record, isn't it," the 73-year-old Stengel bellowed. Then why should I talk about it?" But, the Mets' manager quickly added: "What am I supposed to do, fire all my men? Show me where I can get other players for $25,000 or $50,000 and I'll buy them. But you can't get those fellows. "I have only nine pitchers and they're overworked. Wherever possible, I have to let them pitch a full game and that only tires them more. Right now two of them are hurt, so we're operating with seven. "Take San Francisco. They have 11 and they don't work them full games. As soon as a fellosv is in trouble, he gets help. So they're all nice and rested. You would think they wuold give up one of leir men. But they won't." The Colts took off quickly al Jets' starter Tracy Stallard and cored all their runs in the firsl nning, highlighted by Aspro- nonte's grand slammer. That irritated Casey all the nore. "Most of our pitchers are ex periened men and you woulc liink they know how to get pas he first inning," he said. "Bu his has been happening righ long. And this time it wa: against bad hitters. "This Stallard had trouble will is control. Then when he got tlv iall over the plate, Aspromont lit it over the roof." 'Our infield has been loose ant he outfield isn't too good either But don't ask me to talk abou my records. Not when they're the bad kind." FUEL & GAS DRAGSTER MEET -SUNDAY, JULY 28!
