It was Chicago's fifth straight over the world champions. The White Sox maintained their one-game lead over the second place Cleveland Indians, who downed the Boston Red Sox 7-5 in 13 innings. Norm Siebern opened with a single to right. Hector Lopez followed with another single, this one to center, which sent the young leftfielder to third. He counted on a long sacrifice fly by Gil McDougald. Lopez went to second on McDougald's blow but was out when he tried to score on Bobby Richardson's single. Don Larsen, who now has lot five after starting the season with six straight, fanned to end the Mays' Hitting Propels Giants to 4-3 Victory PITTSBURGH Willie Mays' third straight hit— a two- run homer tn the eighth inning —propelled the league-leading San Francisco Giants to a 4-3 triumph Saturday over the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Pirates grabbed a 3-0 lead on a three-run homer by Dick Stuart in the first inning but the persistent Giants pecked away for single runs in the fourth and fifth and finally went ahead on the blast by Mays. The fleet-footed ccnlerfield- er also collected a pair of doubles in the fourth and sixth. His 16th homer followed a single by Harry Davenport. Ed Bressoud homered for the Giants in the fifth. They scored the other run in the fourth on a double by Mays and an error by Dick Groat. The ball hit by Orlando Cepeda skipped off Groat's arm and rolled to short left, Mays scoring. Ed Fisher, the young knuckleball artist, evened his season mark at 2-2, both victories over the Pirates. He allowed the Bucs only six hits in seven Innings he pitched.

Classified, PagM 7, 8. 9, 10, 11 Carts Now Pose Caddy Problem Littler Holds 2-Stroke Lead WETHERSFIELD, Conn, — Gene Littler cooled off his sizzling pace today, but managed to cling to a two-stroke lead in the $25,000 Insurance City Open Golf Tournament, Littler's 54-hole total was 202 after a third round of 72, Littler, who had been swinging his p^utter as though it were a magic wand, kicked the club on the 14th hole, a 503-yard par five, after missing a short putt for a birdie. Littler, 11 strokes under par! at this point, was only two in front of his nearest challenger, Tom Nieporte of Bronxville, N. Y. The Californian had started the third round with a five- stroke advantage. Bob Goalby of Crystal River, Fla., was four strokes off the pace. Just behind him were Arnold Palmer of Ligonier, Pa., Mike Homa of Rye, N, Y„ Julius Boros bf Mid Pines, N. C„ and Bruce Cranipton of Sydney, Australia, all with 207. , Beisbol * * * A Puzzle to Ivan The increasing use of carts on the nation's fairways has tended to make an old golfing institution, the caddy, almost obsolete—and this -bas created some problems for Racine Country Club, h"6st to the state amateur meet starting July 27. Ade Jensen, RCC pro, says he still doesn't have enough boys of 14 or older to handle the tourney, which has a field of 286 golfers, including 84 juniors. The boys of 14 - plus are needed because at that age, they are permitted to carry the clubs. At 13, caddies must, according to industrial commis sion rules, use a cart. No carts are wanted on the course at tourney time because a golfer might bounce a drive off one of them. Pay for lugging a bag 18 holes is $.3 for the tourney, and there is always the possibility of a tip, assuming the tourney linksman raps a good round. Meadowbrook will host half of the tournament for the two days of qualifying Monday and Tuesday, PHILADELPHIA — (/P) — This game of "beisbol," which they invented, continues to baffle the Russians. Soviet track and field athletes here for a dual meet with the American squad sat through two innings of the New York Giant-Phillie double header Friday night, and came up with questions showing their bewilderment. Such questions as: What are baseballs made of? What do they weigh? Is the infield made that way intentionally or is it becau.se people have worn the grass out running on it so much? They didn't try to find out about the great American institution—the hot dog. Photographers insisted they pose with the delicacy. But they weren't hungry. BALTIMORE — {/?) — The Detroit Tigers, scoring once without benefit of either of their two hits off Hoyt Wilhelm, ."salvaged the second game of a doublcheadcr and ended a .six-game losing streak Saturday night by beating the Baltimore Orioles 2-0. The 5-2 Tiger loss In the first game was their 13th In 15 tilts. Frank Lary's speed ball pitching, in contrast to Wilhelm's elusive knucklers, ended the Detroit drouth. He won his 10th in 17 decisions by holding the Orioles to six singles, pitching to the minimum three in six innings and fanning nine. Yost Gets Ride Leadoff batter Eddie Yost got a free ride around the bases to score Detroit's first run and he singled home the second, Wilhelm's knuckler, as hard to control or catch as hit, fluttered for six bases on balls, four passed balls, a wild pitch and a hit batter as he took his fifth defeat out of 15 decisions. The passed balls tied catcher Joe Ginsberg for the American League record, Gus Triandos of the Orioles, also catching Wilhelm, is one of three others who missed the .same number. After drawing his opening walk, Yost moved around to third on a passed bal! and wild pitch. He scored while Harvey Kuenn was grounding out. Walker Relieves Charley Maxwell singled to right and the Tigers didn't get another hit until Yost singled to center in the seventh. It scored Frank Boiling who had walked and advanced to third on a .sacrifice and infield out. The Orioles won the opener by scoring four runs in the first three innings and having Jerry Walker finish up with a perfect relief pitching job.
