ALTON EVENING Powell Fires Shutout For Mets in 1st Try PHlLADELPHiA (AP) - One Victory doesn't make a major league career, but when it's your fltst starling assignment for the hapless New York Mets yet and against a hot team on an eight- game winning streak, it's an item. Blasingame Spoils Drabowsky's Bid tty JIM HACKLEMAN Associated Press Sports Writer In this age of specialization, Don Blasingame ranks as a specialist's specialist. He spoils no-liit bids. Washington's handsome second baseman did it again Tuesday night with a fourth-inning bunt single, the only hit off Moe Dra bowsky in the opener of an Ameri can League doubleheader at Kan sas City. The Athletics romped it the first game, 9-0, with Doc Ed wards batting in five runs, and won the second 7-5 in 14 innings Duck Season Opens Nov. 1 SPRINGFIELD, 111.

If "the-quota is not reached by Dec. 23, a second season will open Jan. 1 for not more than five . days. on Jerry Lumpe's two-run homer. Blasingame also played the spoiler against Stan Williams of the New York Yankees on Aug. 6, doubling for the lone Senator hit off the right-handor. Last year with Cincinnali, Blasingame ac- counled for Ihe only hil against Cal Koonce in a game against the Chicago Cubs. Dick Donovan's steady pitching and Vic Davalillo's run-producing single in the ninth inning led Cleveland over New York 2-1 Tuesday night, trimming the Yanks' American League lead to 8Vz games. Chicago's runner-up White Sox belted Boston 10-2 as lefty Juan Pizarro became a 15-game winner for the first time in his career with a five-hitter. Hank Aguirre pitched • a two- hitter and got home run support from Rocky Colavito and Norm Cash in Detroit's 6-0 shutout of Minnesota. The Los Angeles Angels and the Orioles were rained out at Baltimore. The Los Angeles Dodgers boosted Iheir National League lead to 6% games, beating second-place St. Louis 7-5. Milwaukee trimmed San Francisco 6-1, Cincinnati edged Houston 1-0, Pittsburgh downed Chicago 5-3 and Philadelphia split with New York, win ning the second game 2-1 in 12 innings after dropping the opener to the Mels 4-0. In addilion to the bunt hit by Blasingame, Drabowslcy allowed just two walks in the rout of Washington. Edwards drove in his five runs with a homer, double and single. Claude Osteen was the loser. Lumpe's homer in the 14th inning of the second game came off loser Don Rudolph with two out, breaking a tie that had lasted from the seventh. Dave Wickersham was the winner in relief. Yankee southpaw Whitey Ford, 17-7, survived bases-loaded jams in the seventh and eighth innings at New York, but couldn't get by the one in the ninth. Woodie Held's double, a walk to Donovan and a single by Jerry Kindall filled the bases before Davilillo sent in the deciding run with his two-out hit. B.F.Goodrich Pizarro Wins 15th For Sox, 10-2 Young Grover Powell, who was kicked off the University of Pennsylvania baseball team bo cause he missed a bus in his jun ior year, shut out the Philadelphia Phillies 4-0 in the first game of Tuesday night's doubleheader. The Phils rallied to win the second 2-1. You would have thought Powell won the first game of the World Series. In the clubhouse after the first game, Powell took HIP ball and had each of his teammates autograph it. "I'm going to stick it in my front window," said the slim-built youngster from Wyalusing, Pa., about 50 miles northwest of Scranton. The 22-year-old Powell almost didn't last the first inning, but lie said lie expected trouble at the startt. "I'm always wild in the first inning," he said, explaining the two walks that helped load the bases. He reared back, however, and forced hard-hitting Don Demeter to pop up and fanned Don Hoak to get out of the inning. Powell, who had worked strictly in relief since joining the Mets 'rom the Class A Auburn team last month of the New York-Penn League, said he was surprised when Stengel gave him a starting assignment. "1 figured he would wait until September, but I was sure glad to have the opportunity," he said. In nine previous games, he had pitched 14 1-3 innings, allowed 8 hits, and 3 earned runs for an ERA of 1.90. Casey Stengel, the Mets 1 man ager, noted the crowd of reporters around the- jubilant Powell and commented, "Not bad for a 14-year-old pitcher. Just imagine what he'll be like when he's 16."
