Prom 15 games back on July 20, the Giants now trail the Los Angeles Dodgers by only 314 games with seven weeks to go. The fellow who was quoting odds on a Dodger-Yankee World Series when the fight mob was In .Las Vegas in late July must haye^revised his line. The Dodgers may win It but they are no "out" bet. The front-line Dodger pitching faltered Sunday when Cincinnati knocked out Sandy Koufax In a sbwtm sixth inning en route to a 9-4 victory on 16 hits.

Eddie Mathews hit a three-run homer for the Braves. Dick Ellsworth won his 16th for the Chicago Cubs in the 8-1 open er but the New York Mets bounced back with a vengeance and Clobbered the Cubs 11^4 for a split of their doubleheader. Chuck Killer drove in three runs for the Giants, two of them with a seventh-inning homer off John Boozer, the relief man for loser Cal McLish. Mays' key double In the fifth opened up a 3-0 Giant lead. Frank Robinson launched the big sixth-inning rally for Cincinnati with his 16th homer.

MOtffcAY, AWU&T 12, Yankees Can't Do Anything Wrong By BOB GREEN Associated Press Sports Writer It's not bad enough that the New York Yankees are making a rout of the American League pennant race in their usual fashion, but now they've come up with a new gimmick: They're sending up their pinch hitters two or three Tahoe Tanker Takes Trophy SEATTLE (AP)—Up until last week the boat was just four tons of trouble, but Sunday the Tahoe Miss changed from a cranky tub to a front-running thunderboat and won the $25,000 Seattle Sea fair Trophy race on Lake Washington. Veteran driver Chuck Thomp son piloted the Stateline, Nev., entry to victory over a field of 11 unlimited hydroplanes, inducing the Seattle pair that was expected to make the race a rvvo- boat affair—Miss Bardahl and Miss Thriftway. Bardahi finished second in the three-heat, 45-mile contest. Thrift- way didn't even get into the final 15-mile payoff heat. Third placu went to Miss Exide of Seattle, fourth to Tempo of St. Petersburg. Fla., fifth to Miss Eagle, Electric of Spokane and sixth to Tempest of Seattle. Thriftway, due to be retired after this race, placed seventh. Bardahl beat her by 300 yards in the final heat, and the two were tied in points at the finish, but her better over-all time won the decision for the Nevada entry. Tahoe Miss covered the 45 miles around the three-mile oval course in 24 minutes, 40 seconds; Bardahl was 6.2 seconds slower. MItiWEST STANDINGS By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS W. L. Pet. G.B.

So you get him out the first time he comes up and the second or third time he kicks your head in. Unfair? Well, not quite. Take Elston Howard and Hector Lopez. Howard went in to bat for Yogi Berra in the eighth inning of Sunday's game with the Los Angeles Angels and flied out in routine fashion. In the same inning Lopez batted for Al Downing and also flied out. \o damage done. But both of them stayed in the game. So the Angels go into the ninth with a 4-1 lead and promptly retire the first two Yankees. But the next two draw walks and Howard comes up again. So Art Fowler comes on to face him. His first pitch lands in the left-field seats and it's a tie game. So Lope/ comes up again in the 10th with a runner on second and singles up the middle, driving in the tie-breaking run. He scored a second run a few minutes later on an Angel error. So the Yankees with 6-4, extending their winning string to six, the Angels' losing string to seven and boosted the New York first-place margin over Chicago to nine full james. The White Sox split a pair with Detroit, the Tigers winning the first 7-2 and the White Sox the second, 3-2 on Dave Nicholson's L8th homer of the season with one out in the llth. Minnesota closed to within a half game of the White Sox on he strength of their sixth straight victory, a 5-2 edge over Boston, while Cleveland edged Kansas City 2-1 and Baltimore beat Wash- ngton 6-2. The Yankee victory at Los Angeles was their 19th in 25 games and their eighth in 10 extra-inning affairs this season. Howard's dramatic shot, his 23rd homer of the season, was the turning point. In the 10th, winning pitcher Bill Stafford led off with a scratch single and went to second on Phil Linz' sacrifice. Lopez followed with his run-scoring single and one out later scored on shortstop Jim Fregosi's error. Don Mincher and Zoilo Versalles hit homers for the streaking Twins, and Camilo Pascua! stopped Boston on five hits for his 14th victory. The Red Sox' Dick Stuart increased his league- leading home run total to 28 with a tsvo-run shot in tbe sixth. Major League STANDINGS By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Amerl.an League W. L.

"I have no plans for retiring and no plans for going on," Fullmer said Sunday night en route to his home In West Jordan, Utah. "I'm going home to talk it over with my family." > The 32-year-old fighting Mormon was cut and battered and drenched with his own blood Saturday before suffering a sevcnth- round TKO at the hands of champion Dick Tiger in Ibadati, Nigeria. His wife, Dolores, said in West Jordan shortly after the fight that she hoped Gene, a former champion, would call it quits.

Rigney's Watch Won't Be the Same., Anymore LOS ANGELES (AP) — Two habits distinguish Bill Rigney of the Los Angeles Angels from the other 19 managers in the major leagues. Lynch Likes Homers, But Wants to Play PITTSBURGH (AP)-Slanming pinch-hit home runs might be Jerry Lynch's forte, but the Pittsburgh Pirate slugger would be happier if he could smash more homers as a starting outfielder. Like Sunday, for instance, when his two-run blast with two put in the last of the ninth powered.the Pirates to a dramatic 2-1 come from-behihd victory over Houston at Forbes Field. Pittsburgh was headed towards a 1-0 defeat when Lunch golfed Hal'(Skinny) Brown's low knuckle ball into 'the upper deck in right field with Bob Clemente on base. It was the 10th homer of the year for the man who earlier this season tied the major league record of 14 career pinch-hit home runs in a game against Chicago. "That was a good one to get for it won the game," Lynch smiled as he sat in the Pirate clubhouse after the game. "I really enjoy ' those, particularly since I was a starter. "Sure, I like to hit pinch-hit homers. Anybody likes toset records. But I'd much rather play regularly." Though feared, because of his vaunted power, the 33-year-old Lynch has seldom batted more than 300 times a season in his 9'/a year major league career. And he's never been "more than . a part-time regular, usually being platooned against right-handed pitchers. ..'.•>' Parnelli Jones •' i .

First, before each game, Rig ney has n carton of milk. Second, for reasons known only j to himself, he always has 'worn his wrist watch during games. The Angnl manager no doubt will have another carton of milk Tuesday night before the Angels open a three-game scries with the Washington Senators. But, for the first time, his left wrist will likely be stark naked. His watch, like his ball club, has come apart. It was converted into a two-piece time piece Sun day when. Rigney hurled it against something hard —' possibly tin concrete wall of his dressing room —after the Angels were once again snatched from the jaws ol victory. Saturday night the Angels led the New York Yankees 1-0 after eight innings and lost' 2-1 when Bobby Richardson hit a two-run single in the ninth.

Bukich Stars For Bears CHICAGO (AP) — Owner-coach George Halas might have to retract that statement he made a couple of weeks ago when he said the only players sure of the jobs with the Chicago Bears were quarterback Bill Wade and end Mike Ditka. When the Bears opened their exhibition campaign with a 17-7 victory over the New York Giants, the stars were quarterback Rudy Bukich and end John Farrington. Wade ran the club the first half which ended with the Giants ahead 7-3, Chicago's only score that half was 25-yard field goal by Roger Lcclerc. Bukich took over in the second half and fired an 11-yard touchdown pass "to Farrington in the third quarter and the same combination completed a 36-yard scoring pass in the fourth quarter. Bukich is a. veteran of nine seasons in the National Football" League without being able to nail down a regular job. This might be his year.
