ALTON EVENING tELfiGRAPH 14,1963 Spahn Snaps 53-Year-Old Whiff Mark Tops Dodgers In Process; Giants Lose Uy DOR GREEN Assotinlcd Press Sports Writer It was all very simple. No bu gles blaring, bonlbs bursting, o lightning flashing. Hawk-nosed old Warren Spahi simply cranked up his 42-year-olc arm and threw a third strike pas Bob Miller ot the Los Angele. Dodgers. Hardly unusual. Ok Spahnie had done that sort o thing only 2,381 times before. Lat er he raised his record to 2,383 But this was the one that pit him in the record book. It broki Rube WaddclPs 53-year record o 2,381 strikeouts by a left-hander and brought the Milwaukee mar vel one of the few pitching record still eluding him. "You always think about rec ords being ~ set with a big, dra malic act." Spahn said Tuesdaj night. "But in the seventh Mille 1 ! just stood there and took the third strike, and that's all there wab to it. Spahn finished with five strike outs in the 4-3 victory over the Dodgers for a career total o 2,383. The victory was his thirc without loss tliis season agains Los Angeles, his 14th over-all, am 341st of his career. The Dodgers, however, main tained their four-game Nationa League lead when the second place San P'rancisco Giants were stopped 4-0 on two hits by Cin ctnnati's Jim Maloney. St. Louis closed to within five games of the leaders and one o the Giants by beating Houston 4-2 in the only other National League game played. Pittsburgh at New York was rained out, and Philadelphia and Chicago were not scheduled. Spahn's victory, in his first start since he was sidelined with arm trouble July 29, was particularly gratifying. It came at the expense of the only club which has an edge against him. He went into the game with a career record of 21-34 against the Dodgers and had to work hard to pull it out. The Dodgers pulled into a 3-3 tie with a run in the sixth, but Denis Menke's sacrifice fly drove in Hank Aaron with the tie-breaker for the Braves in the eighth. Maloney, a 6-foot-2 right-hand- er, allowed only singles to Felipe Alou and Harvey Kuenn, struck but seven Giants and walked only one in posting his 18th victory o] the season for Cincinnati. He got all the backing he needed on two- run homers by Frank Robinson and Vada Pinson. Jerseyville, Bombers Win In B Meet Jerseyville pounded Alton V.F.W., 12-4, and the Alton Bombers nipped Grable Construction, 2-1, in eight innings Tuesday night in the losers' bracket of the Class B Sectional Softball Tournament at Watertower Park. The games had originally been scheduled for Monday night but were washed out. Jerseyville opened up ti 6-1 lead after five innings and then iced the contest with a six-run splurge in the bottom of Hie .sixth {runic. Bob Mackcldon was the winning hurler for Jerseyville, scattering nine hits. Dupy Skinner banged a pair of safeties for Jerseyville. Belts, Nichols and Rexford collected two hits apiece for the V.F.W. Grable Construction scored a single run off Ray Parton in the bottom of the first on a walk and an RBI single by Don Flack. The ISonibcrs bounced buck In the sixth on 1111 error, wild pitch and single by catcher Merle Graves. Charlie Richmond then won the game for the Bombers with a long homer in the first extra inning. Lany Donahue got the victory for the Bombers in relief of Ray Parlon. Donahue pitched four innings, yielded no hits and no runs while fanning five. Wilson took the loss for Grable. A leaping catch by Jim Itohblns in left Hold for the ISoinlMTN with a man on second was thi) outstanding defensive pluy of the game. No games are scheduled until next Tuesday night when Jerseyville meets P. N. Hirsch at 7:30 and Gillespie plays Brighton at 8:45. The latter teams are the only unbeaten teams remaining. Calvary Wins, Plays For Junior Crown In Junior Church Softball play Tuesday night, Calvary Baptist won the second round of play by beating Pi'own St., 15-5. Calvary ended up with a 6-0 league record in the second half and will play Main Street for the championship Thursday night at 9 o'clock. Randy Pace was the winning pitcher. Barry Johns hit a homer, D. pQJndexter had a double and single* HIS FAN, NOW! MINNEAPOLIS-ST. PAUL—Diana Red Sox won, 5-4.

Diane required brain surgery and now wears three plates in her skull as ar esult of being hit by home run ball by Tillman May 29 of last year. (AP Wirephoto) Cliisox Win, But Trail By 8i By MURKAY ROSE Associated Press Sports Writer Dave DeBusschere, 22, felt so :all today he probably could rebound against Wilt Chamberlain. The reason for that wonderful eeling was a 3-0, six-hitter over he Cleveland Indians that gave he gangling Chicago White Sox •ookie hurler his first complete game, his first shutout, and his irst victory over an American /eague team other than the 10th- 'lace Washington Senators. A 6-foot-G, 225-pounder who nade the basketball big league vith the Detroit Pistons last win- er, big Dave now has a 3-4 rec- rd for the season. The other two vins were over the Senators, so ou couldn't ' blame the right- lander for feeling that he finally had made the baseball majors with the whitewash job over the first - division Indians Tuesday night. The victory moved the runner- up White Sox within SVfe games of the league-leading New York Yankees, who were rained out at Boston, and 2 games in front of the Minnesota Twins who were trounced 6-1 by the fourth-place Baltimore Orioles. The Los Angeles Angels snapped a seven- game losing streak by edging the Senators 4-3, and the Kansas City Athletics beat the Detroit Tigers, 4-2. DeBusschere paid off a chunk of his $70,000 bonus with .a poised performance against the Indians at Chicago. He was in trouble only in the fourth inning when the Indians loaded the bases on singles by Tito Francona, John Romano and Al Luplow. He got Max Alvis to end the inning and set the In- juns down with two hits the rest of the way. Steve Barber, the Orioles' speedball southpaw, boosted his record to 16-9 on a fine eight-hit- ler that advanced the club within half a game of the home Twins. Barber fanned nine and walked one. Harmon Killebresv spoiled the youngster's bid for his third shutout with an eighth-inning homer, his 27th. The Angels went through the wringer at Los Angeles in finally ending their losing spell. What proved to be the winning run came in the eighth on Billy Moran's double, relief pitcher Ron Kline's wild pitch and Ed Sadowski's squeeze bunt. In the top of the eighth the Senators had the Angels on the ropes, but two fine plays by shortstop Jim Fregosi saved it. University Officials on Stand By DON MCKBE ATLANTA (AP)—University of icorgia officials were prepared to ake the witness stand today in 'urtis Publishing Co.'s defense gainst a $10-million libel suit led by Wally Butts, former Georia athletic director. Attorneys for Butts said they vould rest their case today in the vake of testimony Tuesday con- radicting the publishing firm's ey witness in its football-fix barges against Butts. Dr. 0. C. Aderhold, university resident, and members of the athletic board were under subpoena as rebuttal witnesses for Curtis. The trial entered its eighth day after testimony from William C. Hartman Jr., who coached football at Georgia during Butts' 21- year tenure as head coach of the Bulldogs. Hartman said he was at a Feb. 22 meeting of university officials who confronted Butts with the substance of an affidavit given by George P. Burnett, Atlanta insurance salesman. Burnett has testified he acci- dentally was cut into a call last Sept. 13 and heard Butts giving data on Georgia's team to Alabama coach Paul (Bear) Bryant. The Curtis-owned Saturday Evening Post used Burnett's affidavit as the substance of an article charging that Butts and Bryant rigged the 1962 Georgia-Alabama game. "His (Butts') remark was that he had talked with Bryant many times . . . but that it (the conversation) had been misconstrued," Hartman said.
