PAGE TWENTY ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH Koufax Beats Pitt, Dodgers Keep Lead By «M BECKER Pre*8 Sport* Writer The remarkable Stan Musial set Another major league record; Most home runs by a new grandfather, 1. Am! the St. Louis Cardinals kept charging on. The Incredible Sandy Koufax broke Ms own National League strikeout mark. And the Los An geles Dodgers stayed three games in front of the Cardinals in the National League pennant race. Musial was up most of the night waiting for the birth of his first grandchild, then smacked a two- run homer as the Cardinals defeated the Chicago Cubs 8-0 Tuesday night for their 13th victory in 14 games. Koufax won his against only five losses, and he struck out nine Pittsburgh Pirates in a 4-2 victory. That gave him 276 strikeouts for the season. His old record was 269 in 1961. The third-place Milwaukee Braves fell eight games off the pace, losing 4-3 to Cincinnati. In other NL action, the New York Mets whipped the San Francisco Giants 4-2 and the Philadelphia Phillies slugged the Houston Colts 16-0. Musial's first inning homer was all Bob Gibson needed to record his 17th victory. It followed a single by Dick Groat, just restored to the line-up after an injury, and was Musiars llth of the year and 474th of his career. Wally Moon hit a two-run homer in the seventh for the Dodgers to run the score to 44). The Pirates got their first run in the bottom of the seventh with the help of an error. Bob Clemente hit a solo homer in the eighth for the Pirates. Hank Aaron hit his 40th and 41st home runs— tops in the majors—for the Braves, but it wasn't enough. Johnny Edwards horn ered for the Reds and Gordy Coleman, who also drove in a run with a double, broke a 2-8 tie with a homer in the fourth inning.

Belinsky left in the ninth inning vhen the Red Sox started to connect. He allowed eight hits, struck iut four and walked none before he left. Belinsky, who pitched a no-hit- er for Los Angeles last year, was armed out to Hawaii after compiling a 1-7 record, a 6.39 earned •un average and a remarkable •ecord for getting into trouble. He won four of five decisions with iawaii. "The Kansas City Athletics knocked off the first-place New York Yankees for the second night in a row, 2-0. Minnesota regained second place as Bob Alii son hit two homers in a 5-4 decision over Minnesota, Baltimore knocked Chicago into third by beating the White Sox 2-1 and Detroit and Washington split. The Senators won 9-8 before the Tigers took the nightcap 4-1. Belinsky went into the ninth with a 5-1 lead, having allowed only six hits—one Dick Stuart's 38th homer that gave him the AL lead in that department. But when the first two men bopped Bo for singles, he was relieved. The Red Sox then pushed across four runs to tie it. The Angels won in the 10th when Lee Thomas cracked a bases-loaded single. The Yankees' Ralph Terry, 1614, and Diego Segui of the A's, were locked in a scoreless battle until the eighth when Charley Lau rapped a two-run double. Segui, who had allowed only a fifth- inning single by Elston Howard until the eighth, needed relief help from Ted Bowsfield and John Wyatt before he won it. The Twins came from behind as Allison slammed a pair of two- run homers, his 34th and 35th of the season. Gerry Arrigo, recently recalled from the minors, shut out the Indians over the final five innings for his first major league victory. Catcher John Orsino collected a single, double and triple as the Orioles edged the White Sox. Milt Pappas pitched the first six innings but left when his arm stiffened and Dick Hall and Stu Miller finished up. Minnie Minoso batted in three runs for the Senators in the opener, including the winning run in the eighth inning. Bubba Phillips GRID MENU homered for the Tigers in the nightcap. Phillips and Norm Cash, who homered for Detroit in the opener, each had five hits for the doubleheader. 89ers Nudge Spokane, 4-3 SPOKANE UPI — It took the Oklahoma City 89ers three pitchers but just one batter to edge the Spokane Indians 4-3 Tuesday night and win the opening game of a best-of-seven series for the Pacific Coast League baseball championship. The batter was right fielder Dave Roberts, who knocked in all of Oklahoma's runs with a double in the third and a homer in the seventh. Baltimore Lets Perry Out of Corral By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Old Joe Perry, who broke into pro football when Casey Stengel was managing at Oakland and Bob Cousy was a kid in college, is looking for a job. The tough, 200-pound fullback who gouged almost five miles out of opposing National Football League lines, was placed on waivers Tuesday as the Baltimore Colts cut back to a mandatory 37- man roster limit for this weekend's opening games. Perry, 36, was the all-league fullback in 1953 and 1954 when he led the NFL in rushing. He got into 11 games and carried 94 times for 359 yards for the Colts last season. The Colts acquired another veteran in place-kicking specialist Jim Martin, who was picked up from Detroit in a trade for a high draft choice. Other veterans involved in last- day maneuvering included longtime Canadian quarterback Sam Etcheverry. signed by the San Francisco 49ers; San Francisco guard Mike Magac, placed on the injured waiver list; and Dallas defensive back Jerry Norton and fullback Mai Hammack, and Philadelphia tackle Jim McCusker, all placed on waivers. Most of the other players involved in the final cuts were rookies or second-year men. The defending champion Green Bay Packers asked waivers on rookie linebacker Tony Liscio and line backer Ed Holler. Sonny Listen Not Worried Grandfather Stan Musial Hits Homer As Cards Remain Alive WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 1963 Californium Leads Skippers ST. LOUIS (AP) — A grandfather and a pitcher boomed the St. Louis Cardinals to their fourth consecutive victory Tuesday night, but the Redbirds will be going against one of the National League's toughest pitchers tonight when they try to extend the streak. Dick Ellsworlh (20-8) of the Chicago Cubs will oppose southpaw Ray Sadecki (8-8), who has Iowa Coach Thinks Team Will Improve The 89ers divided the mound duties among Dave Giusti, Jim Dickson—the winner—and Tom Borland. Joe Moeller went the distance for Spokane. LONDON (AP) — Heavyweight champion Sonny Liston is none too impressed with two of Britain's brightest young boxing prospects. "They both need to learn a lot," Liston said after watching them n action Tuesday night. "I wouldn't like to fight either of them if I want to sleep at night." Liston boxed three rounds of exhibition at Wembley Indoor Stadium with his sparring partner, Feo Cox of Denver, and skipped to the tune of "Night Train," before a sellout crowd of 11,000. He made a quick trip to his dressing room, then returned to watch Billy Walker of London stop Johnny Prescott of Birmingham in the 10th and final round of their heavyweight bout. Walker, 22, suffered the first serious cut of his 20-fight career, but went on to batter Prescott in the final rounds. It was stoppec in the 10th after Prescott had taken an eight-count knockdown. (Another in a series on 1963 Big Ten football prospects by Jerry Liska, Midwest AP sports writer, making his ninth annual camp tour.) IOWA By JERRY LISKA Associated Press Sports Writer IOWA CITY, Iowa Iff) — The still young football life of University of Iowa Coach Jerry Burns fits into a familiar Big Ten "follow the leader — and it's tough" pattern. Burns, 36, starting his third Hawkeye head coaching campaign, is one of five conference coaches whose athletic director is a former coach of great distinc tion. , Burns, a personable chap not given to pessimism, is preparing for a 1963 season with a squad of 20 lettermen committed to defensive rather than offensive excellence. That's a switch from the blurring and devastating winged-T at- ack which was the hallmark of Iowa teams coached by current -lawkeye Athletic Director Forest Evashevski. But, and here comes a big 'but," things aren't the same in the Big Ten as when Evashevski coached the Hawkeyes. All Big Ten coaches now have their recruiting squeezed by the Big Ten's tightening 'academic standards. Burns, for instance, had an entire second string backfield flunk out of school. But Burns is hitching his football belt and still predicting the Hawkeyes, with 20 returning lettermen, will be improved overj last year's team which had an over-all 5-4 record and finished tied for fifth in the Big Ten with 3-3. !he club on offense, so we feel we're better on defense than offense." Iowa center strength in several sons. The tackle corps includes Gus Kasapis, Phil Deutch, George Latta and an outstanding soph, Leo Miller. At center, Gary Fletcher, Dave Keener and Jim Cmejrek are rated top-notch. At guards, Wally Hilgenberg and Mike Reilly are fine defensive seniors. In the switch to defense accent, Llo>d Webb, a 6-feet-5 senior and of fensive standout, rates at end behind soph Alvin Randolph. The other starting end probably wil! be Tony Giarobazzi, a junior let- term an. The Hawkeye baokfield shapes up with Riddle at quarterbalk; Paul Krause, termed by Burns been hot and cold this season, in the third game of the series. Bob Gibson hurled a six-hitter and the Cardinals bashed five Chicago pitchers in an 8-0 whitewash Tuesday night. The shutout came on the heels of Curt Simmons' six-hitter Monday night in which the Cardinals roughed up the Cubs 6-0. The victory was the Redbirds' 13th in their last 14 games and kept them 3 games behind the pace-setting Los Angeles Dodgers who defeated the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-2. Gibson (17-8) struck out five and walked three in going the distance and recording his second shutout of the season. He allowed only one runner to reach third base, as did Simmons Monday night. Gibson and Grandpa Stan Musial sent the Redbirds winging to a 5-0 lead in the first two innings off starting pitcher Glen Hobbie (7-10). With one out in the first inning, Dick Groat ripped a single to left and on the next pitch Musial drilled home run No. 11 onto the pavilion roof. The 42-year-old Musial passed out cigars before the game in celebration of his first grandson, born to his son's wife in Fort Riley, Kan., early Tuesday. In the second, Gibson cracked CHICAGO (AP)— Martin Burnham of San Diego, Calif., the most consistent skipper so far in the International Star Class World's Championships, held * sir-point lead going into the third race of the series today. Burnham won the opening race Monday and finished third Tuesday to lead Joe Duplin of Boston by six points and Pete Bennett of San Diego by eight points. Tom Blackaller of San Francisco won Tuesday's race, defeating Duplin by two minutes and ten seconds. Blackaller, however, is in 14th place in the series, which winds up with races Friday and Saturday after an off day Thursday. After one false start Tuesday, the second race got underway in i light easterly breeze of six miles an hour which became weaker as the race progressed. Olympic gold medal winner Timif Pinegin of Russia went on a wind hunting tour, but had to give up after holding a starboard tack for 20 minutes. Burnham had a series total of 132 points, Duplin 126 and Bennett 124, Lowell North of San Diego was fourth with 121 points with Alan Hahn of Los Angeles and Dave Miller of Vancouver, B.C., tied for fifth .vith 119 points each.
