pAtm ALTON EVENING , AUGUST 23, JLU83 Alive, Beat ers, 3-2 Flood Misses Base, But Gets 4 Hits By MIKK Associated Ffpss S|x>Hs Writer The St. Louis Cardinals, almost left high and dry by Curt Flood took off for Houston today after salvaging the finale of a three- game set with National League- leading Los Angeles and temporarily at least, throwing the Dodgers' runaway chances overboard. Despite a base-running boner by the sure-footed Flood, the Cardinals kept the Dodgers from building their lead to a whopping 8V 2 games by edging the front-runners 3-2 Thursday night in a game punctuated by missed opportunities. Flood, racing around third on Bill White's hit with the score tied 2-2 in the fifth, missed the bag and had to retreat. By the time Flood, who had four hits for the night, retraced his steps, it was too late to try and score. As it turned out, the Cardinals snapped the tie in the sixth on a double by Ken Boyer and Julian Javier's single, ending the Dodgers' winning streak at seven games and trimming their lead to 6% games. The Cardinals, who came into Los Angeles only 5Yz games back and riding a three-game winning streak, now will be looking to make up ground against the Colts while the Dodgers tackle the suddenly potent Milwaukee Braves. The Braves, who have movet into sixth place by winning eight of their last 10, lost to third-place San Francisco 8-6 as Juan Marichal posted his 19th victory despite a grand slam homer by Milwaukee's Joe Torre. The Giants are 7M; back. In the only other NL game scheduled, Roberto Clemente hit a grand slam homer in Pittsburgh's 9-3 belting of the Chicago Cubs. The Cardinals scored twice in the first against Dodgers starter Don Drysdale, 16-14. Dick Groat was hit by a pitch, moved to third on a single by White and scored on Stan Musial's grounder before Boyer singled White home. The Dodgers came back to tie in the third against Ernie Broglio, 14-8, on run-producing singles by Wally Moon and Tommy Davis. After that they were unable to come up with the key hit. Marichal, 19-6, was tagged for Torre's grand slam in the eighth, but by that time it was too late for the Braves. Felipe Alou's three-run homer in a four-run third inning rally against Tony Colinger, 8-8, had put the Giants ahead to stay.

Twyman developed Ihe yearly game to help pay Stokes' big hospital bills. Most ol the lop NBA stars come here for the game, including Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlain, Oscar Robertson, Bob Pettlt and retired Bob Cousy. Twyman said Stokes is cheerful, uncomplaining and grimly determined to be able to walk out of the hospital. Dr. Benjamin Hawkins, Royals teahi physician and an orthopedic expert, said "I think his progress is encouraging and satisfactory. He has shown continuing improvement." Stokes' weekdays have been full of work — chiefly physiotherapy and speech therapy, sometimes extending into evening hours. Stokes, a college star at SI. Francis of Loretta, Ph., was a 6- foot-7, 235-pound Royal standout at rebounding and playmaking when the team was in the 1958 playoffs. He had been dazed March 12 by a wallop on the head at a game in Minneapolis, but apparently had recovered. On a flight from Detroit three days later, he lapsed into unconsciousness, and was given oxygen. Stokes hovered on the edge of death for days. Doctors said he had post-traumatic encephalo- pathy, big words for a brain inflammation after an injury.

Stuart Having Good Year With Hub Hose By BOB GREEN Associated Press Sporls Writer Dick Stuart may not have had an equal since Zeke Bonura. For the younger fans in the audience, Zeke Bonura was a arge right-handed hitting first baseman who played in the majors—principally for the Chicago iVhite Sox—from 1934 through 1940. He hit the ball as few players have done. He also played first base as few players have done. The latter was his undoing. Stuart, a large right-handed hitting first baseman for the Boston Red Sox, comes close to qualifying in each respect. He is hitting the ball, at least so far as power is concerned, better than any other player in the American League. The Red Sox love to talk about that. They don't particularly care to talk about his fielding. Nor does Stuart. So perhaps we shouldn't. Except to quote Red Sox manager Johnny Pesky: "After all, Dick is 6-3 and weighs close to 220 pounds." Which may explain his fielding, or something. The figures explain his hitting. The Red Sox belter, who once liit 66 homers in the minors, drove in two runs on a couple of singles and a homer in Boston's 11-2 romp over Chicago Thursday. The performance increased his American League lead to 33 home runs and 93 runs batted in. Bores, Miller and Pott Tie for Lead at Akron AKRON, Ohio (AP) — Julius Furgol, Ted Kroll and Rex Baxter Stuart's performance and a ;rand-slam homer by the Red Sox' Ed Bressoud prevented the second-place White Sox from clos- ng up any on the league-leading Yankees,, who took a 7-4 licking 'rom Cleveland despite a grand ilam homer by John Blanchard. Kansas City beat Washington 6-2 and Baltimore whipped the Los Angeles Angels 5-1 in the only other games played. Stuart singled in Boston's three- run second inning and hit his 33rd liomer in the next inning, providing all the working room rookie Dave Morehead needed to win. Bressoud, who also drove in runs with two sacrifice .flies, hit his grand slam in a five-run seventh. Blanchard's grand slam came in the sixth,-but the Indians had built a 6-0 lead by that time and blanked the Yanks the rest of the way, gaining a split of the four- game series. Tito Francona, Fred Whitfield and Willie Kirkland hom- ered for the winners. last Sunday's and Monday's play. Alaska Team Leads Tourney WICHITA, Kan.
