Patterson, the Dodgers' assistant general manager who has vowed not to get a haircut until his team has a four-run inning, watched Cincinnati push across four runs In the sixth inning and trim Los Angeles 9-5 Wednesday night, Jim Maloney posted his ,19th victory as the Dodgers went down to their fifth defeat in seven games 1 .. The loss cut the Dodgers' lead to 5V6 games over second-place San Francisco. The Giants, who move into Los Angeles tonight for the opener of a four-game series, downed third- place St. Louis 5-3 as Tom Haller hit two homers and Chuck Killer and Orlando Cepeda one each. The Cardinals remained 6V6 games behind. The fourth-place Philadelphia Phillies closed to within seven games of the top by edging the Chicago Cubs 8-7 for their 12th victory in 15 games, Gene Oliver hit a grand slam and two-run homer ill Milwaukee's 9-1 walloping of Houston and Pittsburgh downed the New York Mets 7-2. The Dodgers, who have managed to score only 15 runs in their last seven games, collected eight hits against Maloney, 19-6, and reliever Joey Jay, but again failed to get Patterson in the barber's chair. It's been nine days since they scored four runs in one inning. The Reds' decisive four-run Northwestern Gould Be Big 10 Champ GOLFERS HONORED BY JCs sixth revolved around Don Pavletich, who had bit a homer off Johnny Podres, 11-10, in the fourth. With two on, Pavlettch ripped a hard shot to third on which Tommy Davis started a double-play. However, umpire Frank Walsh ruled the ball was fielded in foul territory. Payletich went back to the plate and laid down a bunt. Davis fielded it, hesitated, then threw high to Jim Gilliam covering first base, and two runs scored.

Hardly a word has been heard from Dressen, one of the game's angry old men, since he succeeded Bob Scheffing as manager of the slump-ridden Tigers on June 18. The normally outspoken veteran with a penchant for controversy has been the epitome of decorum. The Tigers have been roaring. They won their seventh straight Wednesday for their best streak of he year, nipping the Los Angeles Angels 2-1. In the past two weeks, Detroit has taken 12 of 14 in a climb from ninth place to fifth in the American League. Under Dressen the Tigers are 39-30, compared to their 24-36 mark under Scheffing.

He hit a home run at Yankee Stadium. The Boston slugger has hit 33 out of the other American League parks combined but this was his first at the famous New York ball- yard. Although it represented the Red Sox' only run against Whitey Ford in a 4-1 loss to the Yankees, it was still a big thrill to the tall first baseman. "I was afraid I might not get one here this season," Stuart said, 'and I wanted to very badly. Up to now I hadn't even come close and this is our last trip here." The big fellow has been sort of a Jekyl and Hyde for the Red Sox this season. He leads the league in home runs and runs batted in but he also has made more errors than any other first baseman. Earl Wilson and downed Boston 4-1. Also in the AL — the Chicago White Sox broke a tie with idle Minnesota for second place, sweep ing a doubleheader from Cleveland, 8-3 and 3-1 behind Juan Pi zarro and Eddie Fisher; and horn ers by Jackie Brandt and Jerry Adair in support of Milt Pappas three-hit pitching led Baltimore over Kansas City 3-1. Washington had the day off, along with the Twins. Frank Lary added another victory in his pitching comeback with the Tigers, with a seven-hitter against the Angels., He had a shaky start, gave up a fifth-inning wmer to Jim Fregosi, then al- owed just one hit the rest of the way. Lary is 4-6. Ford, 19-7, limited the Red Sox -o five hits, including Dick Stuart's 34th homer. Wilson also was stingy with the hits—five in his iive innings — but generous with his wild pitches. He uncorked one in the first inning, allowing Phil Linz to come n from third for the first Yankee run. Then in the fourth, on Wilson's second wild pitch of the inning, Clete Boyer scored from -hird and Linz flew all the way in from second—making it 4-1.

ROCK HUNTER Matches start at 8115 P» M* Tickets available at West Junior sponsored by Alton cmCAGO (AP) - Defending champion Wisconsin and veteran loaded Northwestern figure as the early favorites in the powerfti Big Ten Conference this year. But the honor usually means little In a league where no om pays much heed to favorites, anc undefeated seasons are becoming a rarity. Heading the pack into the wide- open race will be Wisconsin, mi nits its great passing combination of quarterback Ron VanderKelen and end Pat Richter. But the Badgers have 24 returning lettermen, including some of the fastest backs in the country. Before starting its seven-game conference schedule, Wisconsin will meet Notre Dame and Irish Head Coach Hugh Devore recently commented on the speed Coach Milt Bruhn has at his disposal. Succeeding VanderKelen will be southpaw Hal Brandt and ends Larry Howard and Don Leafblad will flank an experienced line. Backfield candidates include Lou Holland, Ron Smith, Jim Nettles, Billy Smith and Ralph Kurek. Northwestern hasn't won the coveted Big Ten title for 27 years. Now the Wildcats seem ready. Coach Ara Parseghlan, whose teams have faltered in the late stages of recent seasons, has 27 ettermen returning including 11 regulars. Back again for the Wildcats is quarterback Tom Myers. They'll miss flanker Paul Flatley but .here should be available talent to carry on. Ohio State, because of its tremendous home-grown talent, is always a contender as is Michigan itate. These two teams along with Purdue, and Minnesota are never counted out of the conference •ace. If Wisconsin and Northwestern run into trouble, then any one of ive other teams can squeeze into he championship picture and a rip to Pasadena for the Rose Bowl game. The could be Illinois, a club with only two Big Ten vic- ories-in the last two seasons, llinois, coming up with a top light crop of sophomores, was vinless in 1961 but served notice f possible revival this year with victories over Purdue and Michigan State in 1962. Illinois has reached such a point f strength that Mike Taliaferro, second In total offense in the conference last year, might wind up on the bench, giving way to sophomores Ron Acks and Dick Dorr. Ohio State will be solid on defense and has Paul Warfield returning. Warfleld, possibly the best all-around athlete In the country, is a candidate for the Heisman award. Michigan State is seeking quarterback help but Duffy Daugherty will not lack backfield speed. Returning are such backs as Sherman Lewis, Dewey Lincoln and Ron Rubick—all fast and experienced. Minnesota lost Bobby Bell and John Campbell in its stingy line of 1962 but the Gophers will be tough on defense again and need a little backfield strength to keep them in contention. Purdue will have to do a lot of rebuilding but the Boilermakers have experience in the backfield with Gary Hogan and Ron Dl- Sravio calling the signals and dandling the passing chores. Indiana suffered a serious blow when four varsity candidates were declared scholastically ineligible through summer school plus the loss of four other players from last semester. The outcome leaves the strong Indiana line of last year full of holes. Tailback Marv Woodson is back and with him rest Uoosier hopes. Iowa doesn't figure to win the 3ig Ten title and for that reason the Hawkeyes must be watched closely. They are shy of quarter- jacks and a solid fullback. Gary Tletcher at center, guard Wally fllgenberg and ends Cloyd Webb, Jill Niedbala and Tony Giaco- >azzi. . Michigan finished last in 1962 >ut the Wolverines should start their comeback. Better balance and depth plus added backfield experience will help. However, Michigan is a long way off from regaining lost prestige nationally.

It was the fastest mile by a 3-year-old trotter in history, whether in a race or against the stopwatch. Into the dust of the Du Quoin city mile oval went the Hamble- tonian record of 1:58 2-5 by Harlan Dean in 1961 and the world competitive mark for 3-year-old trotters of 1:58 1-5 by Caleb at Lexington, Ky. in 1961.
