PAGE TWELVE ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 1963 LA Shakes Choke Label, Beats Cards Cardinals Must Face Kotifax Now By JOE REICHLER Associated Press Sports Writer ST. LOUIS, Mo. (AP)-The Los Angeles Dodgers hoped today they had finally shoved the "choke" charge down the throats of their most caustic critics. "They've been accusing us of choking. Now we'll see what happens. The shoe is on the other foot," These words were uttered by Don Drysdale, Los Angeles' right- handed ace. following the Dodgers' vital 3-1 triumph over St. Louis Monday night that widened their first-place lead to two terribly big games over the Cardinals. "Lew Burdette (St. Louis veteran pitcher) was giving us the business all through the game," added the 6-foot-6 Drysdale. "He was clutching his throat while sitting in the dugout. All that did was to make our guys more determined." Burdette's obvious reference to choking apparently did not affect southpaw Johnny Podres who hurled a masterful three-hitter through eight innings before tiring and giving way to Ron Perrano- ski. The peerless bullpen specialist mopped up in the ninth. It was his 64th relief appearance and 18th save. The Dodgers got to St. Louis starter Ernie Broglio and southpaw reliever Bobby Shantz for eight hits including three by Willie Davis and two by Maury Wills. The two stole four bases and scored two of the three Dodger runs. The pressure now undoubtedly is on the Cardinals who face the added hurdle tonight of beating Sandy Koufax, the best in the business. Even if they do and follow it up with another victory in Wednesday night's finale, the Dodgers still would leave St. Louis in first place by percentage points. Furthermore, the league leaders will have the advantage of playing all their nine remaining games at home, three against the last-place New York Mets, three against eighth-place Pittsburgh and three against fifth-place Philadelphia. The Cards will play the Cincinnati Reds five games and the Chicago Cubs two, four of these on the road. Curt Simmons, the rejuvenated veteran, will oppose Koufax, who owns a 23-5 record that includes three straight triumphs against the Cardinals. Simmons, six years older than Koufax, 27, is pitching the best ball of his career. He THINGS LOOK BETTER ST. LOUIS — Pitcher Ron Perranoski (16) gets a handshake from manager Walt Alston of Los Angeles Dodgers following 3-1 defeat of St. Louis Cards last night.

(AP)Duffy Daugherty, starting his 10th Michigan State football coaching season, is trying de- has won 15 games, the last three vear sperately to shed his role of perennial optimist—and perhaps rightly so. Minus 18 lettermen, including All-America fullback George Saimes, from an unpredictable 1962 Spartan team (5-4), Daugherty insists: "Our 1963 squad is not laden with talent. It has less depth- fewer players of Big Ten ability :han we have had in recent years. We had mediocre freshman teams both of the past two seasons. Hence, this is a senior team in what really is a rebuilding year, at least among the first two units." One of Daugherty's prime problems is at quarterback. But this is nothing new at a position that had its last able performer in 1957, Jim Ninowski's senior by shutouts. It was only the second loss in the last 21 games for the Cards who trailed the Dodgers by seven games just two weeks ago. It also ended a 10-game winning streak. "This was the 14th victory in said Drys- anyone say we're choking up? We've played great ball, but they were phenomenal. Even phenoms can lose, too."

City 9, Spokane 0 (best- of-7 final tied 3-3) If junior Dick Proebstle of highly-rated sophomore Steve Juday, still take-your-pick quarterback rivals, can provide' some accurate passing as well as sharp direction of MSU's multiple offense, the Spartans could cause trouble all along the Big Ten way. This time, MSU—suffering defeats in three of their last four conference games (from Minnesota, Purdue and Illinois)—could become a spoiler itself and even imporve on its 3-3 league record. At least, the Spartans will have jreat speed hubbed around a pony backfieid including Sherman ,ewis (152) and Ron Rubick (174), halfbacks, and Dewey Lincoln (181), fullback. What happens on pass defense, even with Charlie Migyanka and Lou Bobich as defensive specialists, remains to be seen. If Lewis, Rubick and Lincoln all are caught on defense under the new substitution rule, Daughterly expresses the jocular hope: "Maybe we can get rival quarterbacks to throw low passes." Lewis is 5-9, Lincoln, 5-8 and Rubick, 5-7. Of the top 10 interior linemen, two centers, two of the four guards and three of the four tackles never played before at their current assignments. "We'll have to rely on deception and speed and we'll have to throw the ball more," said Daugherty, whose Spartans averaged only 12 passes per game 'ast season. "We feel we have better passers this year, especially if Juday can make the grade. He has quick hands and is very accurate. Because we think we have improved passing is why we shifted Migyanka from quarterback to defensive rover." Under the new substitution rule, Daugherty hopes to develop seven topnotch offensive-defensive players and use four specialists as wild card subs. He feels he already has five excellent two-way performers, including end Matt Snorton, 229- pound senior; 239-pound tackle Dave Herman; Lewis, Daugherty's best clutch ball-carrier; center Don Ross and guard Earl Lattimer, a converted fullback. If opponents start clamping down on the likely 180-pound starting Spartan backfieid, Daugherty can insert a shot of power in seasoned fullback Roger Lopes. CAN CARDS BEAT HIM? Here's Sandy Koufax, the Dodgers' brilliant left- hander who faces the Cardinal* tonight in the second game of the crucial three-game series at St. Louis. Koufax lias a season's record of 28-5. He leads the league in strikeouts. His opponent will be Curt Simmons. The last time they faced each other, Koufax went 1% innings and Simmons 13 before both retired. George Horton photo.

Game time is scheduled for 12:35 p.m. (St. Louis time), with broadcast over KMOX and television over KMOX-TV (Channel 4). A fine opening-night performance gave the Big Red a 34-7 victory over the lilgh- ly touted Dallas Cowboys and extended a Cardinal mastery which has lasted since the Cowboys entered the league The victory was costly, howev •, as Prentice Gautt went to the sidelines with internal injuries which will keep him out of action indefintely. The Cardinals' No. 1 fullback thus joins their No. 1 halfback. John David Crow, on the injured 'list. Bill Triplet! and Joe Childress picked up the slack against the Cowboys, with Triplet! the game's top ball carrier on 82 yards in 12 carries, highlighted by a 30- yard burst that set up the Big Red's first touchdown, scored by Mdress on a one-yard pitchout. Triplett was the big gun of the scoring drive, picking up 68 of the team's 79 yards on the march. He ignited the campaign with a 38-yard gain on a swing pass, then blasted over the right side in a third-and-one situation for 30 to put the ball on the Dallas one. Jimmy Hill, Bobby Joe Conrad and Charley Johnson scored the other Cardinal touchdowns, and Jim Bakken added four extra points and a pair of field goals from 43 and 45 yards out. Hill's touchdown, which sent the Cardinals into a good-sized halftime lead and practically served as the clincher, came on New American League York (Downing 12-4) at :ieveland (Donovan 11-13), N.

LOUIS (AP) — Manager Johnny Keane of the St. Louis lardinals said he used pitcher Bob Gibson as a pinch hitter in the eighth inning of the big open- ng game of the series with the Los Angeles Dodgers Monday night "because he was the best hitter I had at the time." Keane said the right - handed hitting Gibson is "the best hitting pitcher in baseball, and he can hit the long ball. I thought he was the best man I had to get up there and hit at the time. 1 Gibson has driven in 20 runs this season and has been hot with the jat lately. He has three homers in 79 at bats. The big right-hander, a former basketball player with the Harlem Globetrotters, is scheduled to start against the Dodgers Wednesday night.

Fifteen of the Phillies picked the Dodgers and 12 thought the St. Louis Cardinals would win. Cardinals Battle Philadelphia Next a 58-yard dash after intercepting a Don Meredith pass. Conrad scored on a four-yard flip from Johnson, and the quarterback romped into the end zone on a keeper play. Last year, the Cardinals notched a 27-21 triumph here in the season opener as Crow scored three touchdowns. In 1961, the Big Red overcame deficits of 17-0 and 27-14 to notch a 30-27 victory on Gerry Perry's 27-yard field goal with five seconds left. Hill started the triumphal march with an interception and Sonny Randlc made a clutch catch' along the way. Gautt scored two touchdowns that day. The Cardinal offensive line gave Johnson fine protection against Hie Cowboys, who never got to tlic Big Red quarterback. Johnson hit 11 of 20 passes, including five to Conrad. Defensively, he Big Red put a great rush on Meredith and Eddie LeBaron. who could combine for only 14 completions in 31 attempts. The Cardinals also did a fine job shackling the Cowboys' running game as middle linebacker Dale Meinert turned in a superlative performance. Rookie defensive end Don Brumm was credited with five individual tackles. Defensive tackle Don Owens was credited with three unassisted tackles and with assists on six more and Luke tackle and was in on t h r e e others. The Eagles, led by fancy- passing Sonny Jurgensen, have great receivers in Tommy McDonald and Pete Retzlaff, and fine backfieid speed in Timmy Brown and Clarence Peaks. The Big Red will leave St. Louis Saturday and is scheduled to work out here that afternoon. The Cardinals will fly back to St. Louis immediately after the game.

Tigers, Belleville Very Impressive A full schedule of non-conference games is on tap for Southwestern Conference elevens Friday night after enjoying a banner beginning last weekend. All seven teams debuted last weekend and six of them came through with victories while the other one fought to a scoreless tie. Most impressive of the seven were Edward§ville and Belleville. Edwardsville, sporting its strongest team in years and rated a darkhorse in the upcoming league race, had no trouble with host Madison, 46-12. Three backs scored the touchdowns for the Tigers. Big Bob Hoskins, converted to a fullback on offense this season by Coach Ben Isselhardt, led the attack with three touchdowns for 18 points. Halfbacks Joe Townsend and Jim Hoskins each scored twice with Townsend adding two extra points and Hoskins one. Belleville, rated third in the state last year with an undefeated 10-0 record, shook off the effects of losing its i-ntiri! starting offensive team, and rocked visiting Webster Groves, Mo., IM-6. Halfback Glen Poole and full back Jim Goodwin paced the one- sided victory with each scoring two touchdowns. Wood River, with 12 lettermen returning for the season, was an easy 26-0 winner over Civic Memorial of Bethalto. Fullback Joe Huff sparked the Oiler debut, scoring two touch downs on a nine-yard run and latching onto a seven-yard TD toss from quarterback Lee Davis. Three other conference trams won squeakers. Alton, runnmip to Belleville last year, got by stubborn Quincy, 14-13, on the extra point kicks by center Vic Schwartz. Track star Leroy Johnson, a 185-pound fullback, paced t h e Rodbirds by scoring both touchdowns on runs off 22 and five yards. Johnson, you'll recall, helped the Alton thinclads to the •state track title last May at Champaign. Andrew Johnson, runnerup in both hurdles events in the state meet, plays halfback for t h e Redbirds and gained 54 yards in eight carries for a 6.8 average. Leipy totaled 73 yards for 6.6 per try.

East St. Louis, favored to cop the crown, had to settle for a 0-0 decision with St. Louis U. High in a battle of grid titans in the metropolitan St. Louis area. So tight was the East St. Louis defense that the Missourians picked up only 21 yards on the ground and penetrated Flyer territory just three times in the game. East St. Louis never got closer than the St. Louis 20. Seven more non-conterence games are slated Friday night for Southwestern teams. Lincoln and East St. Louis go against each other in a battle of city supremacy.

Bradley Plays Butler Next PEORIA — Bradley, fresh from a surprising 12-6 win over Central Michigan in night, began day for the Braves' annual gridiron battle with the Butler Bulldogs. These two have met six times previously with Butler holding a 5-1 series edge and the Saturday 1:30 p.m. game should favor the Bulldogs despite their 3113 opening loss al Morehead State.

The Bulldogs are expected to start 10 previous award winners with Bradley's Coach Billy Stone doing likewise. game is slated for Saginaw Saturday preparations Mon- ham, 111. The third Mt. Olive, 111. this Saturday night. "We'll have single sessions Thursday and Friday, too," Coach Harry Gallatin said today pointing out that "we can use the drills to go over any mistakes we might uncover in the intra- squad games." Gallatin plans to cut the squad following Saturday night's game but exclaimed that at the present time he has no idea who will go. "We'll give everyone a real chance this week and just who will stay will depend on what they show," he remarked. Gallatin plans to limit the cut to just two players which will pare the squad to 14 men. Guard Bob Duffy is in military service and not available for all practice sessions. "Although it is a little early to say now, I figure on keeping 14 men for the pre-season exhibition games. Actually, that's 13 since we, don't expect Duffy to be able to make too many of them until he gets out of service." The Hawks play the Detroit Pistons in the first of 13 preseason exhibition games Wed. night, Sept 25 at Edwardsville, 111.
