PAGE SIXTEEN ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 1963 Cards Just About Dead After Losing, 4-0 Sandy Kouf ax Magnificent In Victory By MIKE RATHET AMftettted Press Sports Writer JVtth only 87 pitches, splendid •CKUlipflw Sandy Koufax has made the St. -Louis Cardinals as much of .a long-shot as Gen. Custer. Waking their last stand in a vttal three-game series with the •^League-leading Los An- igers, the CardinaJs lost ''second night in a row Tuesday as Koufax spun a four- hit, 4-0 shutout and posted a record-setting Uth shutout. The loss, only the third in the last 22 games for St. Louis, left the CardinaJs three games back —four in the all-important loss column. Including the finale of the series tonight, the Cardinals have only eight games remaining to 10 for the Dodgers. While leaving the Cardinals with only a long-shot chance of overtaking the Dodgers, Koufax also made the night a personal triumph by becoming the first left- hander in major league history to post 11 shutouts, and the mo: prolific shutout pitcher since 191 Koufax, who has a 24-5 record broke the shutout mark for lef banders set by Carl Hubbell, wh pitched 10 for the 1933 New Yor Giants. Koufax' llth was the mos by any pitcher since Grove Cleveland Alexander pitched " for the Philadelphia Phiilles 1916. While the Cardinals and Dodg ers were playing the big one, Sar Francisco clubbed Milwauke 11-3, Philadelphia downed tht New York Mets 8-6, Cincinnati edge< Houston 4-3 and Chicago ani Pittsburgh split. The Cubs took the opener of a twi-nighter 3-1 the Pirates the nightcap 4-3. Cleveland edged the American League champion New York Yankees 3-2 in 10 innings, the Chi cago White Sox defeated Boston 2-1, Minnesota downed Detroit 3-1 and Kansas City nipped Washington 4-3 in 10 innings. The Washington at Los Angeles twi-nighter was rained out. Tne fireballing Koufax, the fleet Maury Wills and the towering Frank Howard all played key roles in the Dodgers' victory. Koufax was the key man. He had a no-hitter until Stan Musial, the Cardinals' 42-year-old grandpa, lined a single to center leading off the seventh, and he allowed the Cardinals two hits only to the eighth inning. At that point, Tim McCarver and Julian Javier were on with singles, but Koufax got Dick Groat, tied for the league batting lead, to Hne out to Willie Davis for the inning ending out. Wills scored the only run Koufax needed when he led off the first with a single off Curt Simmons, 15-8, stole sceond, raced to third on a wild pitch and scampered home on a double by Jim Gilliam. Howard provided additional working room with a homer in the eighth following a single by Tommy Davis and the Dodgers closed out the scoring in the ninth on an infield hit by Willie Davis, his steal of second and a double by Johnny Roseboro.

(AP)—"Good pitching will always beat good hit ing," Johnny Keane said sadly >ut wisely after Sandy Koufax o x>s Angeles overpowered his lard-hitting St. Louis club in perhaps the key game of the National >eague season. "The Dodgers' pitching has been great and that's the story of this cries so far," the Cardinal manger said after Koufax's four-hit 4-0 shutout victory Tuesday night, ohnny Podres stopped the Cards n three hits, 3-1, Monday after hey had won 19 of 20. Walter Alston, Los Angeles manger, had high praise for the big ft-hander whose llth shutout of season was a major league ecord for lefties. "Koufax was great—he's the greatest pitcher in the game," Uston said. "You don't shut out e Cards very often." Stan Musial, perhaps the great- st player of his generation, had iis to say about Koufax, "He's eld that club together, he's the reason they're up there in firs place." Asked whether he could reca a lefty in his best season bette than Koufax this year, Musial, 42 thought long and hard and couk not come up with a name. Koufax was amazed when tok he had made only 87 pitches, 21 of which were balls. He struck out four, well below his average and didn't walk a man in running iiis record to 24-5. "I don't think I've ever pitchec a game when I made under KX pitches," said the 27-year-old Dodger ace. Both Alston and Keane hac words of praise for losing pitcher Curt Simmons, a crafty veteran who held the Dodgers to one run until Frank Howard's eighth in ning blow. While the Dodgers, with coach Leo Durocher the ringleader, were highly confident, the Cardinals were grim-faced. It was obvious their chances were almost gone >ut they didn't want to admit it Musial put it this way: "We ust have to win every game from now on." Bears' Game Better Than 73-0 Victory NEW YORK (AP) — George lalas claims the Chicago Bears efensive effort against Green Jay last Sunday was a better job han their famous 73-0 playoff vie ory over Washington in 1940. No wonder the Bears lead the National Football League in team efense. They were so effective n the opener that the Packers 'ound up 14th and last in team ffense with only 150 yards, 77 unning and 73 passing. When the Bears thumped the ledskins in that playoff game ong ago, Washington made only hree yards rushing but got 229 •assing. Perhaps the most significam Tony Trabert Retires From Tennis Business LONDON (AP)—Tony Trabert, the new head man of the pro ten nis traveling show, announced his retirement today, both as a play er and a front office man.

LOUIS (AP)-The St. Louis, football Cardinals placed bad Prentice Guutt on the disabled list Tuesday after he was waived by all other clubs in the Naliona Football League. Gautt, who suffered a kidney injury in Saturday's game against Dallas, joined another running back, John David Crow, and defensive corner back Billy Stacy. They are off the active roster for four weeks. The move Tuesday reduced the Cardinal roster to 36, one below the limit. They have until Sunday morning to fill the vacant spot. Max Carey holds the National League record for stolen bases. His total is 738. statistic for the Bears was their total of four interceptions of Bart Starr's passes.

Stan Jones, converted from guard, played his first full game at defensive tackle. Bennie McRae started his first game at corner back. Bob Kilcullen, a reserve, filled in for injured Maury Youmans and Ed O'Bradovich.

LOUIS (AP)-Cardinal Man ager Johnny Keane, and just abou everyone who saw Los Angeles defeat St. Louis 4-0 Tuesday night agreed that the game's turning point came in the third inning. With Cardinal runners on second and third via a hit batter and an error, and the Dodgers leading 1-0 shortstop Maury Wills fielded Ju lian Javier's sharp grounder and threw to the plate to nail Tim McCarver trying to score. "That was our big chance," a somber Keane said, "If McCarver had scored it would have been a new ball game. But he didn't." Wills, the little Dodger speedster said: "I gambled and won.

John reached out, caught the ball and made the tag almost in one motion." Sandy Koufax, the brilliant left- hander who hurled his llth shutout of the season and set a National League record, said that situation caused him his most anxious moment. "Javier hit the ball on the nose," Koufax said. "I wanted to make him hit into the ground. When he hit it, I was hoping Wills would throw the ball home and he did. It was a great play." The Cards had only one more opportunity to break through Koufax' guard. That was in the seventh when Stan Musial led off with a single, the Cards' first hit. Ken Boyer followed with a towering fly to right that Frank Howard caught at the base of the pavilion. "I thought it had a chance to go over," said Boyer later.

(AP)-Big Tei defending champion Wisconsin and bristling Northwestern get one-week jump on conference foot ball rivals Saturday against West ern Michigan and Missouri, respectively. Northwestern ? s"Wildcats, cc-fav orites with the Badgers in the title race, ostensibly Have a mucl tougher opening test. But Wiscon sin must uncover a key perform er Northwestern definitely has — a skilled quarterback. Northwestern is rated No. 6 ant Wisconsin No. 7 in The Associated Press national pre-season poll. While Northwestern hangs it high, hopes on the magic arm o seasoned Tom Myers, Wisconsin must quickly develop a successo to graduated Ron Vanderkelei for able direction of an otherwise formidable squad. Vandy's heir apparent is south paw junior Harold Brandt, witl only 55 minutes of varsity experi ence and no Pat Richter to make clutch catches all over the field. If Brandt falters, one of two bright sophomore quarterbacl prospects—Dave Fronek or Johi Fenske—may direct a Badger ar ray of 25 lettermen on the first three units. At that, Coach Milt Bruhn starting his eighth Badger sea son, asserts, "The quarterback situation is better now than it was last year at this time." Bruhn disclosed that Vender Selen, a big question mark in 1962 pre-season practice, had a shoulder separation prior to the opener with New Mexico State. "Brandt is not going to be an other VanderKelen," Bruhn said His style is entirely different.

Fenske is our best passer and some day he will throw the ball with anybody. But he has to learn the offense." Besides quarterbacks, the Badgers are hurting at end where Richter, Elmars Ezerins and Ron Carlson are gone. But defensive star Larry Howard, letterman Ron Leafblad, Jim Jones and Bobbie Johnson, two good receivers and transfers from Trinidad (Colo.) Junior College, are available. Badger running strength should be great, hubbed around halfbacks Lou Holland and Fred Reichardt and fullback Ralph Kurek on the No. 1 unit. Other seasoned backs include Carl Silvestri, Billy Smith, Jim Purnell, Jim Net tics, Ron Smith and Gerry McKinney. Nettles, Bill Smith and safety specialist Ron Frain are fine defensive backs, with Kurek a bruising linebacker. Bruhn is worried about his guards, but he admits his tackle squad is excellent, headed by 245- pound Roger Pillath, Andy WoJ- dula (212) and Roger Jacobazzi (227). Center Ken Bowman, fattened from 210 last year to 229, should be one of the best in the Big Ten. Starting guards probably will be lettermen Jon Hodman (226) and Mike Gross (201).
