Mttfg TWELVE ALTON fiWBMNG MONfOAY, AUGUST 5,1963 Podres Misses Bern; Craig Loses 20th By MJkfi Press sports Write* Los AHgfeleS left-hander Johnny Podfeg, a sore-backed pitcher who produced a splne-ttaglei, kept his bid lot a hfrhittef going with the aid of baseball's newest weapon in Houston's sweltering heat Sunday night, Podfes took a few whiffs as he set the Colts dowft untl! Johnny Temple led off the ninth Inning \vith a sharp single. Podres then lilt Bob Aspromonte with a pitch and was relieved by: Larry Sherry, who preserved the?£fj triumph. There., .was no help for Roger Craig of the New York Mets as he trudged slowly off the mound after a 2-1 loss at Milwaukee. The defeat, Craig's 18th In succession, matched the mark established by Cliff Curtis of Boston In 1910, and made him the 13th pitcher in major league history to lose 20 games two years in a row. Now 2-20 following last season's 10-24 record, Craig let the Braves score the winning run on a wild pickoff attempt in the sixth inning and became the first two- time 20-game loser since Paul Cefringef wih St. Louis and Cincinnati in 1933-34. Willie Mays hit his 27th homer in the loth inning for a 2-1 victory over (he Chicago Cubs that moved San Francisco into second place Philadelphia dropped St. Louis to third, beating the Cardinals and 5-2. Cincinnati swept Pittsburgh 5-2 and 4-1. Podres, who brought his record to 11*7 In his 275th major league start, said he was tired after running out a double In the seventh nnlng and took some oxygen The Dodgers scored In the sixth igaihst Ken Johnson, 6-15, on Tommy Davis' run-producing single, and Podres' double drove in two of three runs in the seventh Mays connected off Ltndy Me Daniel, 7-4, to give Don Lai-sen 3-5, the victory. Ron Santo hom- ered for the Cubs. Winning pitcher Ray Gulp, 11-9, 'apped In two runs with a pair of singles and Johnny Calllson and Clay Dalrymple homered in the Phillies' opening game triumph. The Cardinals led the nightcap 2-1 ;oing into the eighth when the 'billies erupted for three runs. Mantle Hits Homer In Pinch Hit Role TENNIS CLINIC WOOD RIVER—Earl Buchholz, renowned tennis pro from St. Louis, demonstrates the finer points of the f ame to youngsters at a tennis clinic aturday afternoon. The clinic was held at the Wood River High School courts and was open to anyone interested in the sport. Buchholz appeared through the cooperation of the Wood River and Havana Recreation Departments.—Don Hayes photo. By BOB GREEN Associated Press Sports Writer The proud, haughty New York Yankees were in serious danger of looking like an ordinary bal club. But then the Big One stepped in Just long enough to swing the bat once, and they were the Yankees again. The Yanks' oft-injured super star, Mickey Mantle, making his first appearance in a Yankee game since he broke a bone in his left foot June 5, cracked a dramatic pinch-hit home run into the left field bleachers, pulling the Yankees from behind and aiming them toward an 11-10 victory. The Yanks had lost the first game of a doubleheader 7-2, their two starting pitchers had been bombed out and the Baltimore Orioles, helped along by five unearned runs, had a 10-9 lead in the second game. Mantle, to a wild ovation from the Yankee Stadium crowd of 38,555, stepped in in the seventh. Batting right-handed against the left- handed George Brunet, he lined the second pitch into the left field bleachers. The Yanks won it in the 10th on Yogi Berra's sacrifice fly. Second-place Chicago inched to within seven games of the leading Yankees on an 8-1 romp over Los Angeles, Kansas City beat Minnesota 6-2, Washington stopped Boston 7-5 and Detroit and Cleveland split a pair, the Tigers taking the first 2-0 and the Indians the nightcap 3-2. Mantle, who had missed 61 games since his injury in Baltimore, said the ovation when he came from the dugout "actually chilled me. I could feel the bumps rising on my arms. 1 was shaking. I told myself, 'I'll settle for a single.'" By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS American League Batting (250 at bats) — Yastr zemski, Boston, .331; Kaline, De troit, and Rollins, Minnesota, .312 The homer was his 12th of the season. Brooks Robinson had a homer or the Orioles, and Elston Howard connected for the Yankees. Home runs by winning pitcher iteve Barber, John Powell and John Orsino made it easy for the Orioles to win the opener. The White Sox closed up a half game as Camilo Carreon drove in hree runs on a double and a single and scored another against the Angels. Hank Aguirre tossed a sparkling two-hitter in Detroit's easy first- jame victory against the Indians, and rookie, Mickey Lolich had another shutout until the Indians rupted for their three runs in !ie ninth and gained a split.

LOUIS Johnny Keane (AP) — Manager of the St. Louis Cardinals lost four times against the Philadelphia Phillies Sunday. He got thrown out of both games of a doubleheader — and his Redbirds svere beaten tsvice, 7-3 and 5-2. Keane was joined on one of his by hustling young shower catcher trips Tim McCarver, thrown out in a stormy ninth of the second game as fans peppered the field with paper cups, cushions and anything else they could toss. Meanwhile, the double jolt dropped the Cards into third place, 4% games behind league- leading Los Angeles and a half- game behind second-place San Francisco. Keane's first ejection came early in the first game when he protested umpire Vinnie Smith's ruling that catcher Carl Sawatski caught a ball off the screen. In the Phillies' ninth of the second game, umpire Frank Secory heard too much from the Cardinal dugout and again ordered Keane from the field. McCarver protested and he was ejected, too. In the gloomy dressing room after the doubleheader, Keane explained what he said in the ninth: "I told Secory that all the umpires were having a lousy day." So did the.Cards. In the opener, the Phils hammered 12 hits to the Cards' seven in jumping all over starter Lou Burdette and his relievers, Bob Humphreys and Ron Taylor. Burdette lost his ninth game against eight wins. The nightcap was no better, despite more hits (14-12) for St. Louis. The Phils used four pitchers but still overcame the efforts of starter Bob Gibson and the men who replaced him, Barney Schultz and Bobby Shantz, Gibson lost his fifth game against 12 wins. The Cards are idle until Tuesday when they play the Mets at New York.

Central Illinois Collegiate Baseball By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Bloomington 8-4, Lincoln 2-5 Galesburg 6-1, Champaign-Urbana 4-6 Pepria 4-7, Springfield 3-4 Spectator Dies When Drag Machine Crashes GARY, Ind. (AP) — A young spectator died and 10 otohers were injured Sunday when a drag-racing vehicle crashed into a crowd of fans and sprayed them witl flaming gasoline. Louis San Martin, 21, Park Forest, 111., was pinned between the vehicle and a parked pickup truck. He burned to death. The victim's brother witnessed the fatal accident. The dragster, John • L. Mont- gerard, 23, Lansing, 111., escaped injury. His car tore through three lalf-inch steel retaining cables into about 500 persons lining an area near the pits at U.S. 30 Dragway three miles east of Merrillville, a Gary suburb. "He plowed a path right hrough the crowd," said state trooper Harry Swank of Lowell. 'If he went down along the side of them, there would have undoubtedly been more killed," Swank said. The trooper said Montgerard vas traveling 50 miles an hour at the start of the quarter-mile •acing strip when the clutch box shattered in an explosion "like a hand grenade." Both the steering mechanism and brakes were knocked out. Two spectators, James Tribble 20, Portage, and John Bouillon 20, Oak Lawn, 111., were burned critically. They were taken to Porter County Hospital in Valparaiso. Five more fans were admitted at the hospital, and three were treated and released. Swank said flames engulfed the drag racer as it ripped the cables from fence posts. ''The explosion threw flaming gasoline everywhere spraying the onlookers," the trooper said. "They were scattering, but it happened so fast, it didn't do them any good." Track officials quickly extinguished the flames. Montgerard was racing with another dragster on a parallel strip of paving when the gear box shattered. Swank said it was common at the track for clutch mechanisms to explode under racing pressures. Cub Fans Wonder What's With Banks CHICAGO :(AP) — Amidst the anks of the Chicago Cubs an mbarrassing situation is begin ing to unravel and smack in the niddle of it is Ernie Banks. Banks, one of the great slugger; f the National League in the last ecade and the greatest in Cub istory, is in \the worst slump o: is career. . Although he has a career tola f 352 home runs and 1,016 runs atted in, Banks is batting a weak 229 compared- to a lifetime aver- ge of .288. "I don't know what's wrong,' Banks said. "I feel okay. I want i play." But Banks is not playing and lat's part of the embarrassment. A week ago Saturday he was enched while the Cubs faced the t, Louis Cardinals and southpaw Curt Simmons. During the game 3anks was sent up as a pinch alter. When the Cardinals witched to a right-handed pitch- Banks was lifted for pinch alter Merritt Ranew who swings rom the left side of the plate. The following day Banks played i both games of a doubleheader 'hen at Milwaukee he started gainst a right-handed pitcher bu as been on the bench since al- lough southpaws have pitched igainst the Cubs. When the Cubs closed theii eries with San Francisco Sunday Banks was listed in the starting ineup and then yanked ' shortly lefore the game began. Although the crowd of 33,289 ;ept looking for him in the late tages as a pinch batter, Banks lever made an appearance Secretly what really hurt the 32- ear-old slugger was a maneuvei n the bottom of the 10th inning f what turned out to be a 2-1 loss i the Giants.

Then Willie Mays, who some were: .writing -off. : as finished earlier in . the season, smashed his 27th home run in the top of the. 10th. . After two wei'e out in the Cub half of the inning, Don Landrum went to the plate as a pinch batter. On deck was another pinch batter—Dick Bertell. Since Landrum flied out to end the game, Bertell never got to the plate. But (here were raised eyebrows as to why Banks, who has 17 home rims and 54 runs batted in, was not on the circle instead of Bertell with 2 home runs and 11 RBIs. "Bertell must have been a decoy," someone suggested to Head Coach Bob Kennedy. "No," said Kennedy. "I'm giving Banks a rest and intend to follow through with it. I've tried to rest him in other games but he gets in one way or another and winds up playing a lot more than expected." Is something wrong with Banks? "No," Banks said after the game. "I feel fine.

The selections, picked from a list of six submitted by Professional Golfers Association, were announced Saturday by Sidney L. James, chairman of the executive committee of the International Golf Association. The selection, as tradition calls, was made. by the host country, and in this case France.

Alabama, ranked .No. 1 nation ally at the end of the 19G1 season, won the 1962 season-opener from Georgia 35-0. The Post article said Alabama was a 14 to 17 point favorite in the betting lines. Butts filed a and $10 Bryant, million who libel also suit against the Post, denied all the charges. Butts quit coaching at Georgia following the 1960 season, but remained as athletic director unli liis resignation one month before publication of the article. He said he was quitting for business and personal reasons. Butts claims the article ruined his coaching career—22 years at Georgia. He also contends that the Post falsely charged him with "rigging and fixing the Alabama Georgia football game with Coach Bryant as a gambling device in order to restore his financial resources." The Post denies the assertions. The Post said the article was based on a telephone conversation overheard by an Atlanta businessman, George P. Burnett. He sale he was 'accidentally cut into a long distance call' between Butts and Bryant about a week prior to the Sept. 22 game. . Burnett said he, heard Butts give secret information on the Georgia team tp .'the Alabama coach., " '.;••. ; .''•' " Georgia Atty. , Gen. Eugene Cook investigated the Post charges and concluded that Butts had given Bryant vital information on the Georgia football team. However, he said he could find no evidence that either Butts or Bryant was involved in gambling. Alabama Atty. Gen.
