.A-.- iA.-a ALTON ..SVENWa TELEGRAPH ,,. Two Tough Losses For Young Hurlers By ,)tM tiACftLiSMAN Associated FfesS Sports Writef Heartbreaking losses for a pair of youfigsters and a touch of luck for a Veteran, it was that klnc of a "night on the American League pitching scene Monday. Joel Horlen of the Chicago White,.Sox had his brilliant try for a hVhitter—and victory—shattered in the last of the ninth at Washington. Chuck Hlflton's single with one out was the first Sen ator hit off the 25-year-old right- handerr recalled from the minors last week. Then Don Lock's two- out homer pinned Horler with a 2-1 loss. At Baltimore, rookie Mickey Lollch of the Detroit Tigers held the Orioles to one single through eight innings but in the ninth Al Smith singled with one a vay and one out later pinch batter Dick Brown smashed a homer and Baltimore won 2-1. Old-timer Robin Roberts got the victory with a two-hit performance. At Cleveland, Dean Chance of Los Angeles fired a two-hitter at the Indians and was backed by a free-scoring splurge that included an eight-run third inning capped by Felix Torres' grand slan 1 homer. Score—11-0. Also in the AL—Dave Wickersham turned in an eight-hit shutout and Wayne Causey and Norm Siebern banged homers as Kansas City beat New York's first- place Yankees 5-0 and Boston withstood a Minnesota home run spree in downing the Twins 7-5. Horlen, going for the first no- hitter in Washington in 3i years retired leadoff fhan Jim King in the ninth before Hinton bounce* his single. Larry Osborne ground ed out and Lock followed with his 17lh homer, The loss was the third against five victories for Horlen. Ron Kline was the winner after pitching the ninth for Wash Ingtort. Lolich, a 22-year-old left-hand er, retired the first 11 batters gave up a single in the fourth to 3ob Johnson, then set down 14 more in a row before Smith batted for Roberts and .singled. Luis Aparicto filed to left aiK 3rown whacked Lolich's first pitch for his second homer of the year. Roberts allowed one Tiger hit n the first and one in the ninth, walked two and hit a batter. The only run off the 36-year-old right- hander was unearned. Fred Whltfield broke up Chance's no-Mi bid svith two out n the seventh when he looped a single to center. Woodie Held singled in the eighth for Cleveland's other hit. The big right-hander valked three and struck out 12. The Angels pounded five Cleveand pitchers for 14 hits, getting six in their eight-run burst against oser Dick Donovan and Jerry Valker. Horlen Lost Not Only No-Hitter, But Game WASHINGTON (AP) - "The cuve ball was my good pitch all night. I lived with it and died with it," mourned Chicago White Sox pitcher Joe Horlen after watching his chance for a no-hit' ter go glimmering in a 2-1 loss to the Washington Senators. Just two outs from the record book, Horlen's no-hitter faded into oblivion in the ninth inning Monday night when Washington's Chuck Hinton rapped a scratch single for the Senators' first hit. Then, after getting the next batter out, Horlen's night of near glory turned to utter misery when he served up a pitch that Don Lock knocked over the fence for a two-run homer and a Washington victory. "It was a curve ball and it hung." Horlen said later in the dressing room. He carefully put his glove away in a locker and buried his face in his hands.' Manager Al Lopez patted the 25-year-old right-hander consolingly on the shoulder, but most of his teammates tactfully left him alone and nobody talked much in the gloomy Chicago dressing room. "That curve ball," muttered Horlen dejectedly. Horlen had a slim crowd of less than 5,000 Washington fans cheering him as he went to the mound in the ninth, despite what he was doing to their Senators. Cameramen took up position near the Chicago dressing room in anticipation of picturing Horlen in his moment of triumph. But Hinton's hit turned the crowd's favors back to the home team and Lock's game-ending home run brought the photograph' ers running, while Horlen trudged sadly to the locker room. Washington's Ron Kline, who relieved Steve Ridzik in the ninth, turned out the winning pitcher. Horlen, just four days back from minor league duty in Indianapolis, would have been the first pitcher to perform a no-hitter in Washington since the Senators' Bobby Burke in 1931—except for "that curve ball." Horlen walked five and fanned three. PROBABLE PITCHERS By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS American League Kansas City (Drabowsky 2-7) at New York (Bouton 13-5.

Koufax pitched a five-hitter and josted his 17th victory in a 6-2 decision over surging Philadelphia that ended the Dodgers' losing »treak at four games and main ained their 4V 2 -game bulge over he pursuing pack. Winless for 13 days as the Dodgers straggled through their worst kid since early June, Koufax itched smoothly if not spectacu- arly, with home run support from Pommy Davis and Willie Davis. The 27-year-old left-hander has a 17-4 record — tied with Juan Vlarichal of San Francisco for the most victories in the majors. He s No. 1 in strikeouts with 195 in 94 2-3 innings and in complete •ames with 15 while maintaining a brilliant 1.89 earned run aver- ge.

Mete 9 Defeat Would Set New Record By CHARLES MAHEB Associated Press Sports Writer LOS ANGELES (AP) — All hey have to do is lose tonight and the New York Mets will be ible to speak of road disasters with as much authority as the National Safety Council. If they can keep from beating he Los Angeles Dodgers — and hey have had virtually no trou- )le in this respect before — the Mets will set an all-time major eague record for consecutive osses on the road. They have already lost 22. That :ies the record established by 3 ittsburgh in 1890, during the administration, of Benjamin Harrison. The Mets set a modern major eague record for uninterrupted [ailure when they suffered their 20th consecutive defeat on the oad at Houston last Friday. The Mets haven't won a game away from the Polo Grounds since June 15, when they beat the Reds at Cincinnati. They accumulated five consecutive losses later on that trip, lost seven on their next trip and have dropped 10 on their present excursion. Tracy Stallard, who delivered the pitch that Roger Maris lu't for tils record-breaking 61st home run in 1961, will try to avoid involvement in another unwanted record tonight, Stallard (3-9) will start for New York against Bob Miller (7-6), who pitched for the Mets in 1962.

Graham has been coaching the All-Stars since their last victory over the professionals—a 35-19 upset over Detroit Iti 1958 — and tipped his hand after last year's 42-20 loss to Greefo Bay. "They beat us with their pass patterns," said Graham, "there didn't seem to be anything wo could do about it." Bart Starr, Green Bay's methodical quarterback, threw five touchdown passes as the Packers turned a 21-20 lead after three quarters into a rout, Graham has been carrying a clipboard of Green Bay pass patterns hi every All-Stars workout. But whether the All-Stars will try to rush Starr or concentrate on covering the receivers is something that will not unfold until Friday night. Graham is as secretive as usual about his starting quarterback, the key role in tlie All-Stars' attack. The choice will be a tough one. The All-Stars have Heisman award winner Terry Baker of Oregon State, Glynn' Griff ing of Mississippi, Ron VanderKelen of Wisconsin and Sonny Gibbs of Texas Christian. The man who gels the Wod Mil be throwing to soWe 1 6t the great pass receivers Hi college history. There's Paul Flatley, the flanker star from Northwestern; Pat Rlchter, the Wisconsin record breaker; Hugh Campbell of Wash- Ingtoft Slate, John Mackey of Syracuse, Willie Richardson of Jncksoti State and Bob Jcncks of MlnM of Ohio. Add to this group some breakaway backs who also can sttate passes, the All-Stars have an excellent chance of Upsetting Green Bay If their lines can match the Packers' experience — hardened forward walls. For a change, the All-Stars will be at full strength In the backfield now that most of the heavy drills are out of the way and there is little ehnrtge of any Injuries. Two years ago, Graham was unable to use Joe Bellino of Navy. Last year, the All-Stars were without the services of the late Ernie Davis of Syracuse and Ron Bull of Baylor, who went on to become a top rookie with the Cliicago Bears. Larry Ferguson ol Iowa, Bob Paremore of Florida A&M, Charlie Mitchell of Washington and Roger Kochman of Penn State have been impressive in workouts, along with Ben Wilson of Southern California and Bill (Thunder) Thornton of'Nebraska. The All-Stars will hold one'drill Tuesday. Wednesday night they will work out under the lights In Soldier Field and end their sessions Thursday afternoon.

Arnie took the Western Open title and its accompanying check as a gift from Julius Boros and Jack Nicklaus in an 18-hole play- Torrid Giants Definitely Not Through SAN FRANCISCO (AP)-"The National League is tough and you can't count anything in or out un til the season is over," declared Manager Alvin Dark of the re- surging San Francisco Giants after they won 'their eighth straight game. "All a team has to do is lose momentum one day and it can go into a slump," he continued after his Giants had edged Pittsburgh 5-4 for a series sweep, thanks to Willie Mays' three-run homer and great relief pitching by Jim Duffalo and Billy Pierce. Ten days ago fans counted 10 over the Giants only to discover this wasn't boxing and the club wasn't out at all. For after being 10 games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers on July 20, the Giants have climbed back into second place just 4Vz games off the pace. Tonight they face the hot Philadelphia Phillies and young Ray Gulp as Billy O'Dell draws the San Francisco hurling assignment in the bid for a ninth straight. Mays slugged a two-run homer on Sunday to win 3-1 and his 24th blast of the'season on Monday provided the winning margin.
