'AUGUST .1, I*ASS Tttmw«ftil§ Crais Nears 20-Loss Campaign Dodgers Pin 17th Straight Loss on Him By MtKB ttATHBT AMoclftted Precm sports Writer Roger Craig, the major leagues' No, 1 pitching pauper, stnnds today one step away from etching yet'another entry Into the New York Mets', lengthy log of negative statistics. The hapless hurlcr with the "I gotta pitch a shutout to get a tie" motto' spun a slx-ltittcr Wednesday night against Nutlonnl League-leading Los Angeles but came away with a 5-3 defeat— and hls'ltth consecutive loss. The triumph, Increasing tile Dodgers' lead, over second-place San Francisco to 41/4 games, shackled Craig with his 19th do- feat and extended a winlcss streak that dates from his second victory on April 29. Just one loss removed from becoming a two-time 20-gnma loser, Craig also has closed in on a league record for successive setbacks that hns escaped being matched for over half a century. In 1910, Clifton Curtis of (.he then Boston Braves lost 18 in a row. Craig, a 32-yenr-oId right-hand- er, became the loser when the Dodgers pushed across two runs In the fourth Inning with the aid of ah error and a wild pitch. An error also contributed to the downfall of the second-place Giants. With their nine-game winning streak on the line, relief pitcher Bob Bolln uncorked a wild throw that catapulted Philadelphia to a 7-3 victory In 14 Innings. In other, games, Cincinnati knocked third-place St. Louis five games back as Jim O'Toole broke a''six-game losing streak by beating the Cardinals 9-2, Ron Santo supplied the punch for the Chicago Cubs' 3 : 2 triumph over Milwaukee and Pittsburgh whipped Houston 6-3. : Craig fell behind when catcher John Roseboro 'tripled home two. runs and scored a third for bat- terymate Pete Rlchert, 1-1, In the second inning. In the fourth, the Dodgers clinched it on singles by Tommy Davis and Ron Fairly, an error by Ron Hunt arid Craig's wild pitch. Frank Thomas drove In two Met runs with a pair of singles. The Phils scored twice against Giants' 17-game winner Juan Marichal in the ninth to tie, then got their first break in the 14th on ap.4nterference call against catcher"' Ed Bailey that ; put two men oii. Earl' Averlll followed with a bouncer back to Bolin, who heaved the ball over third base. Johnny Galllson capped the burst with a two-run homer. Jack Baldschun brought his record to 94 with six innings of two-hit relief. Bolin is 6-4, NOT SO! SAN FRANCISCO — Philadelphia's Tony Taylor (8) and second base uhipiro John Pryor look as if they are about to square oft 1 in bottom photo after Pryor called .Taylor out, tori, on this play in fourth inning Wednesday at Candlestick Park. They didn't tangle. San Francisco short stop Jose Pagan (15) put tag on Taylor as latter tried to steal second.

The top-ranked heavyweight contender from Louisville has signed a recording contract and wi|l make his first album next week.' It will"-be entitled, naturally, "I Am The Greatest." To promote his new" venture, the Mighty Mouth held forth at a cocktail party Wednesday. .Very little was said about records, but quite a lot svas said about, lor and by Clay. The 21-year-old fighter-showman put on a SO-min* ute performance of non-stop talking, complete with flamboyant gestures, and, exaggerated mimicking "for.--a "room crowded with newsmen,. assorted Madison Avenue types and members of the Clay entourage. ... "I guess I'm the best fighter ever was for show business," Cassius Marcellus intoned rnaUer-bf- factly. "I sell tickets. Why, people never saw a fight in their life pay to see me—old men and old women. "Why when I fought in London there was a little old lady there with two kittens in her arms. She said she never saw a fight before but she wanted to see me get my big mouth knocked on the floor." The talk got around to Sonny Lislon and the proposed bout between the champion and his vol uble challenger, tentatively set for Sept. 30 at mammoth Phila delphia Stadium, which seats up ward of'100,000. "Why, ,T hear they're already puttin' in more seats. "That big ugly bear, Lislon, lie scares some people with that mean stare of his," said Clay arms folded across his chest anc eyes glowering a la Sonny. "Bu he don't scare me—I'm ready.

Tribe Hits 4 HR's In Same Inning By JIM HACKLteMAtt Associated i'fcss Sports Writer Put Paul Foylack's feat high on that list of baseball's dubious distinctions. ' The Los Angeles Angels' right- hander became the first pitcher in major league history to give up four straight home runs In a single Inning Wednesday night— an unwanted achievement If ever there was one. Foylack was bombarded In the second game of a doubleheader at Cleveland when Woodie Held, pitcher Pedro Ramos, Tito Francona and Larry Brown socked successive homers in the sixth inning. The rapid-fire barrage climaxed a night of long-range hitting for the Indians as they swept the Angels, 1-0 and 9-5. The four consecutive homers In an inning set an American League record and tied the major league maik established by Milwaukee In June 1961. But the Braves hit their four in a vow'against two different Cincinnati pitchers—so Foytack's feat is a first. All told, the Indians whacked seven homers in the doublehead* er. Fred Whitfield won the opener with a shot in the eighth inning and also hit a grand slam in the second game, and Ramos hit a 17-Year-Old Girl Attains Swim Dream Major League pair in the nightcap. Also in the AL—Tom Tresh's homer with two out in the bottom of the ninth gave New York's irst-place Yankees a 3-2 decision over Kansas City; the Chicago White Sox beat Washington 5-2; Baltimore beat Detroit, 2-1; and Minnesota tripped Boston 9-5. Barry Latman pitched a four- hitler for the Indians In the opener at Cleveland, settled by Whitfield's homer off Fred Newman in the eighth. ,ln the second game Ramos' first homer and the grand slam by Whitfield came in the third Inning, giving Cleveland a 5-1 lead, and it went to 9-1 with the Tribe's lour-in-a-row in the sixth. Ralph Terry held the Athletics to five hits, but they bunched two of them and two sacrifice flies for a 2-2 tie in the seventh inning. Trcsh pulled it out for the Yanks, however, with his clutch homer off reliever Ted Bowsfield in the ninth. The White Sox beat the Senators with a four-run fifth inning highlighted by Jim Landis 1 two- run triple. Ray Herbert, who won it with relief help from Hoyt Wilhelm, blanked Washington until Don Zimmer homered with one on in the seventh. The loser was Claude Osteen.

"I could hear their voices urging me on. It was something subconscious. And 1 kept going on. "I couldn't let them down." Claudia, a student nurse from St. James, Man., swam the swirl- Ing waters from Cape Gris Nez, France, to Sandgate, two miles west of here, in 17 hours and 7 minutes Wednesday. At 17 years and four months, she became the youngest girl ever to accomplish the feat. The previous youngest was Margaret White, an English girl, who was 17 years, eight months when she made the crossing in 1961. Despite her accomplishment, Claudia has no further swimming ambitions. 'All I want to do now is to return to Silver Heights College in St. James to study to be a nurse," she said. "This was my one swimming goal and I accomplished it."
