1963 ALTON EVENING TfcLEGKA*>t* **H-«Ma- ^*»«- .«. Phils Give Mauch' Two-Year Contract (AP)-"U (he furthest thing from my mind," said Qehc Mauch of his hew two- J/CM contract as manager of the young Philadelphia Phillies- Mauch was summoned in uniform, from the clubhouse by the Phils' general manager, John Quitin. Qulnn handed the 37-year-o 1 d Callfornian a contract through the i!)65 season and although the terms were Mot disclosed, Mauch Is believed to be In the $40,000 category! "I'm t>roud of the fact that owner Bob Carpenter and Qulnn think there has been some progress and it's going lo - get progressively better and I'm the guy they Want to be around while it happens," said Mauch. A man ol fierce pride, Mauch also is very matter of fact about things. As one man put It, If Gene were elected President he'd probably say, "Nice." Mauch agreed with an observation that his Phillies came to life the hard way, after losing a doti- bleheader to the hapless New York Mots in the Polo Grounds June 23. Observed Mauch, "It's the same us with an Individual hitter. Sometimes he has to hit the bottom of (he barrel before he starts going good. We started playing better after losing those two to the Mets." Since dial date the Phillies have won 27 of 40 games and have moved from eighth place to sixth, a game out of the first division, In some quarters they are considered a pennant contender. , Mauoh explained he is particularly pleased with his new tenure because the Phillies are a young team, improving each year. Mnuch took over as manager of the Phillies in the third game of the 1960 season after Eddie Sawyer resigned. The Phillies finished last in 19GO and 1DG1. The Phillies last year posted the wlnningcst record in the major leagues through the final six weeks of the season, advancing from the cellar to seventh place nnd earning Mauch National League Manager of the Year honors. Two Chicago Teams Blow Chances to Gain Ground CHICAGO Iff! - Tiie Chicago White Sox and the Chicago Cubs proved 1 on'Aug. 6 that neither is worthy of contention in the respective American League arid National League pennant races. Both might have gained ground but both failed to do so with the Sox dropping a 4-3 decision to Kansas City and the Cubs failing against league-leading Los Angeles, 4-1. The Sox waited until the ninth inning to decide their game with Kansas City. Trailing, 3-9, the Sox scored three times in the ninth to tie the game with Charley Maxwell blasting a two-run homer with two out. Then, with Hoyt Wilheim pitching, Gino Cimoli struck out but Camilo Carreon failed to hold the ball and Cimoli reached first. Cimoli went to second on a wild pitch. Jim Brosnun look over for Wilhelrn and after retiring the next batter, pinch batter George Alusik singled to center to score the winning run. The league-leading New York Yankees,'meanwhile, had split a doubleheader with Washington and the Sox dropped to eight games behind the. .Yankees. ; The Sox face the A's again Wednesday night with Juan Pizarro 13-5 'going against Dave Wickersham 8-9. The Chicago Cubs fell before the onslaught of Maury Wills and pitcher Don Drysdale. Wills hammered out four hits while Drysdale held the Cubs to six as the Dodgers strengthened their hold on the National League lead. Wills scored once and drove in (mother run while boosting his average to .500 against the Cubs this season. Larry Jackson suffered his 10th loss against 12 victories. In what could be one of the great pitching batlles of Ihe season, Dick Ellsworth 15-7 will take the mound this afternoon for the Cubs and face Sandy Koufax 18-4. The last time these two winning southpaws met, the Dodgers won 11-8 and both pitchers were knocked out of the box. Few. Tourneys, But Palmer Way Ahead DUNEDIN, Fla.
