ALTON EVENING fELEGRAPM WEDNESDAY, JULY 31,1963 They're Jumpin' for Joy in New York Mets Finally End 22-Game Road Streak % By MIKE RAtHET Associated Press Sports Wrtlef The New York Mets, who hold ft first mortgage on the brink of disaster, marched back from the precipice today after ending their 22-garne losing streak on the road. Tracy Stallard kept the Mets from setting an all-time record for consecutive losses away from home by spinning a four- hitter that beat Los Angeles 5-1 Tuesday night and trimmed the Dodgers' National League lead to 3& games over San Francisco. Willie Mays and Willie McCovey. supplied the firepower for a 5-0 Giants victory over Philadelphia. It was the ninth straight triumph for the San Franciscans, who were 10 games behind Los Angeles 10 days ago, Stallard served up Roger Marls' 61st homer and was on the mound when the Mets set a modern record for road losses by dropping their 20th straight away from the Polo Grounds. But the 25-year-old right-hander, the winner when the Mets last won on the road June 15, may never have been sharper than on Tuesday. He allowed only two runners beyond second base in sending the front-runners down to their seventh defeat in 10 games. The victory left the Mets tied in the record book with the Pittsburgh team of 1890 at 22 road losses. Third-place St. Louis closed to within four games of the Dodgers by beating Cincinnati 7-5 as Ernie Broglio checked the Reds on one run in 61-3 innings of relief work. Milwaukee bombed the Chicago Cubs 9-2 and Pittsburgh walloped Houston 8-1. The Mels, after losing 10 straight on the current road trip, collected 14 hits against the Dodgers in support of Stallard, who struck out six and walked one in bringing his record to 4-9, Ken McMullen's homer spoiled his shutout. Frank Thomas hit his ninth homer, off loser Bob Miller, 7-7. BIRTHDAY FOR CASEY LOS ANGELES — Manager Casey Stengel and his jubilant New York Mete sing out with joy in the dressing room in Los Angeles last night as Casey celebrates a double reason for cheering—his 73rd birthday and the first victory for the Mete in 23 starts on the road. The cake was a birthday gift from the Dodgers, who lost to the Mete 5 to 1. Left to right: catcher Jesse Gonder, Casey, Frank Thomas, Duke Snider, Joe Christopher and Coach Ernie White. (AP Wirephoto) LA Angels Suddenly Tearin' Up League By MIKti ttATHET Associated Press Sports Writer They aren't flying high, but it appears the Los Angeles Angels have at least gotten off Ihe ground. The surprise team of last year, a third-place finisher in Its second season, has been a surprise this year too—in reverse. After sputtering through April, May and June, the Angels went inlo a dive at the start of July and as late as five days ago were in eighth place. But five straight victories have carried them to sixth—the highest they've been in a month. The Angels' latesl victory came Tuesday night at Cleveland when they frittered away a four-run lead, then won 6-4 with two runs in the 10th inning. The New York Yankees kepi their eight-game hold On the league lead by beating Kansas City 6-2 with four runs in the eighth inning. Chicago's second- place White Sox trimmed Wash- All-Stars Have Etched Names in Record Books Willies, Billy Put Giants Nearer Top Mays slammed two doubles and a single and McCovey hit his 31st homer, a three-run shot, to back up the shutout pitching of Billy O'Dell. O'Dell, nicked for 11 Phillie hits, posted his first victory since June 22 while boosting his record to 11-6. McCovey regained the majors' home run lead when he connected against Ray Gulp, 10-9. Broglio, 11-7, struck out seven in his relief stint. Bill White and Charley James homered for the Cardinals, whose three-run fifth tagged Joe Nuxhall, 8-5, with the loss. Ed Roebuck Levels Blast At Alston By THE ASSOCIATED PPESS Relief specialist Ed Roebuck, leaving his Los Angeles prison for the American League dungeon at Washington, was on his way to join the Senators today after firing a high hard one at Dodger Manager Walt Alston. A 32-year-old right-hander with 15 years service in the Dodger organization, Roebuck was sent to last-place Washington Tuesday in a waiver deal in which National League-leading Los Angeles acquired infielder Marv Breeding. It was the major deal on a day of player shuffling. Roebuck admitted that he was "sort of sad to leave," then lashed out. "But in another way, it's like getting out of prison—getting away from Alston." He added: "I think the Dodgers will win the pennant in spite of Alston." The Chicago Cubs called up pitchers Cal Koonce and Tom Baker from Salt Lake City of the Pacific Coast League while sending down hurlers Dick LeMay and Jack Warner. Koonce won 10 games for the Cubs last year. The Cincinnati Reds purchased the contract of Jim Coates, who pitched this year for the New York Yankees and Washington, from San Diego of the PCL. Sent to the Padres was pitcher Jim Owens. «* As for Roebuck's remarks, Dodger General Manager Buzzie Bivasi agreed that the Dodgers would win the pennant with Alston "now that Eddie is in Washington." Eavusi said he thought Roebuck, who had made 29 appearances and had a 2-4 record tor the Dodgers, "Is trying to blame somebody else for his own faults. If Walter didn't pitch him there must have been a reason." Central Illinois Collegiate League By THE ASSOCIATED J»«ESS Bloomlngton 3, Champaign-Urbana 1 Galesburg §45Pewia 2 Lincoln 5, raingftOd 4 \ SAN FRANCISCO (AP)—Willie Willie, Billy and the wind put tin defending National League cham pion San Francisco Giants jus y& games behind the leading Los Angeles Dodgers today in the pressure-packed pennant race. As the Giants beat the Phila. delphia Phillies 5-0 Tuesday night for their ninth straight triumph, Willie Mays doubled his first two times at bat and scored the first two runs. Then Willie McCovey regained the league home run leadership with a three-run clout in the fifth inning and Billy O'Dell scattered 11 Phillie hits to register his llth pitching triumph with the shutout. Candlestck Park's renowned breezes played their part to perfection—for the Giants. With the score 1-0, Mays lofted a high fly to start the fourth inning. It started toward shortstop until the wind took control and waffed it back toward the Giants' dugout. As Philadelphia infielders gave chase and Mays ran, the bal dropped near the first base line for one of the shortest doubles on record. Ed Bailey's single and Jimmy Davenport's sacrifice fly brought Mays in to score. With Harvey Kuenn and Chuck Hiller on base in the fifth, McCovey connected hard but under a pitch by Ray Gulp. The ball went towering toward right field. Aided just enough by the wind, it made the grade over the fence for Willie's 31st homer of the campaign. The crowd of 20,686 roared on learning the New York Mets had downed the Dodgers 5-1, further reducing their lead over the Gi ants that stood at 10 games just last July 20. 'Tthink we have as good a shot at the pennant as anyone," de- cleared San Francisco Manager Alvin Dark as he prepared to senc his ace Juan Marichal' (17-5) against the Phillies' Chris Short (3-8) in the finale of the success ful home stand.

CHICAGO (AP)—When the All- Stars and Green Bay Packers meet in football's midsummer classic Friday night, one or more of the collegians will have their names inscribed in a growing brook of memories. Year after year since the game was inaugurated in 1934, youngsters from college use the Ail- Star game as a stepping stone to greatness in the professiona! ranks. Every member of this year's 50-man squad will go to a pro camp, 40 to the National Football League and 10 to the American League. Some will fail to make the pros, some will become journeymen players and a few will achieve the distinction o: playing for a championship team and will return to face future All Star teams in Soldier Field.- It's anybody's guess who the stars of the All-Stars will be Friday night. But looking back, there are some names which never wiL be forgotten. It was back in 1937 when the All-Stars defeated Green Bay 6-0 A young man named Sammy Baugh threw a 22-yard pass to aynell Tinsley who dashed the remaining 25 yards for the game' Vets Head Gal Golfers CLEVELAND (AP) — Darlene Hard and Billie Jean Moffitt, both of Long Beach, Calif., and veterans of Wightman Cup campaigns, head a five-member U.S. team which will compele against Great Britain in the 35th renesval of the tennis classic Aug. 10-11.

The following year Cecil Isbell and Johnny Kovatch combined on a 39-yard touchdown pass to get the All-Star rolling toward a 2816 triumph over Washington. Two years laler, Isbell returned as a member of the Green Bay Packers. He threw three touchdown passes, two to Don Hutson, and guided the Packers to a 4528 victory over the All-Stars. It was in 1943 when Otto Graham, present coach of the All- Stars had his moment of gloi-y. Graham intercepled one of Baugh's passes and ran,97 yards for a touchdown in a game which saw the All-Stars dump Washington, 27-7. And who can forget tlje greal All-Star victories in 1946 and 1947 with Los Angeles first and then the Chicago Bears losing by 16-0 scores. Elroy Hirsch ran 68 yards for a touchdown against the Rams and then took a 38-yard pass from Graham for another touchdown. The following year Buddy Young and Charley Trippi ran the Bears dizzy before a record crowd of 105,840. Remember Charley (Choo Choo) Justice from North Carolina? In 1950 Justice and a little quarterback named Eddie Le Baron helped kayo Philadelphia, 17-7. Five years later another little boy named Tad Weed from Ohio State literally kicked the All- Slars to a 30-27 victory over Cleveland. Weed was so small he couldn't possibly play against the pros. But how he could kick. He booted three field goals and three extra points. Fully aware of the importance of the field goal, the All-Stars used Bobby Conrad's toe bra 3519 triumph over Detroit in 1958 But Conrad had to take a back seat to a fleet youngster from Illinois—Bobby, Mitchell. taking flat passes from Jim Ninowski, Mitchell ripped off touchdown runs of 84 and 18 yards and is still one of the great runners in the NFL playing for the Washington Redskins. Win, lose or 'draw, some of the All-Stars will leave something to be remembered after the. Green Bay game.
