UNDER AND IN — Pittsburgh's Roberto Clemente slides in underneath falling New York Mets' catcher Joe Pignatano to score in the ninth inning of the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader at the Polo Grounds. Clemente had walked to fill the bases and came all the way around to score when Met shortstop Felix Mantilla threw Jim Marshall's grounder over the head of first baseman Marv Throneberry. The three-run error gave the Pirates the runs they needed to take an 8-6 victory. (AP Wirephoto). rf Vlrdon cf Groat ss Skinner If Burgess c cGoss Leppcrt c Clements ..

Garland HuUo HE 3-6373 HE 3-6373 WED., AUGUST 22,1962, Uke ttefa tea Maloney's Pitching Keeps Reds in Contention, 2-0 By The Associated prp« y.n <rinmnk «<.«. »u. f '\.-. ., . * By The Associated Press 'Round about June, Cincinnati Manager Fred Kutchinson had a perplexing mathematical problem. No matter how he added things np. his search for a fourth starter invariably left him with three. Then Hutch had a hunch- Jim Maloney. Its August, the defending champion Reds have pulled to within five games of National League leading Los Angeles and are only 1'i back of second-place San Francisco. One of the major reasons—Jim Maloney. A 22-year-old right-hander who started in the Cincinnati organization as a shortstop, Maloney continued his fine hurling Tuesday with a four-hit job whUe Marty Keoughs two-run inside-the-park homer provided the support for a 2-0 triumph over the Chicago Cubs. It was the fourth consecutive triumph for Maloney, who has solved Hutch's pitching problem by joining Bob Purkey (19-4), Joey Jay (MO) and Jim OToola (13-13) as the Reds big four. Maloney now is 8-4 and has allowed only six runs in his last four starts—an amazing .164 earned run average. Keough, meanwhile, took over where the Reds big hitters- Frank Robinson, Vada Pinson and Gordie Coleman — failed against Don Cardwell. The 28- year-old utilityman, acquired from Washington and hitting at a .288 clip, stroked the game-winner in the eighth inning after a single by Leo Cardenas. The triumph was the Reds 14th in the last 17 games and moved them another step closer to the Dodgers and Giants, both idle Tuesday. In other action, Milwaukee edged St. Louis 6-5 in 10 innings, Pittsburgh extended New Yorks losing streak to 13 games with an 8-6 triumph in the opener of a doubleheader before the Mets came back to win 5-4. Art Mahaffey got Philadelphia off to a sweep over Houston with a 5-3 first game triumph for his 17th victory before the Phils made it 15 in a row without a loss over the Colts by winning the nightcap Maloney and Cardwell, who had compiled a string of 17 straight scoreless innings, were locked in a shutout duel until the eighth. Cardenas started things with his third hit of the game. Keough drove the third pitch to right Mood Different But Goal Is Same for Cincinnati we're not going to finish sixth. But we still have a chance for the pennant. Hutchinson isn't a bit worried about his pitching corps, anchored by Bob Purkey (19-4), Joey Jay (18-10) and Jim O'Toole (13-13) and receiving splendid help recently from Maloney (84) and Joe CHICAGO (AP)-Only the mood is different this season with the Cincinnati Reds. The objective is the same as last year—the National League pennant. Spirit, desire, breaks, good pitching and the big bat of Frank Robinson carried them to the title In 1961. But not until they actually clinched were the skeptics willing to concede. Then came the disastrous World Series which the New York Yankees won, 4-1, and such murmurs as "lucky" and "cheese champs" were heard. In fact, the Reds were picked by many to finish as low as sixth this year. The Reds will be the first to admit they have a long haul in a short period of time if they are to successfully defend their National League title. And they are the last to admit they are out of the race although they are in third place.Vive games behind the league-leading Los Angeles Dodgers.

Remember, we have his hitting despite Robinson's ! title to defend, great year. "Robby can't do it alone," said Hutchinson. "He needs help especially from Vada Pinson and Gordy Coleman. And maybe a couple of others." Pinson, 50 points below his 1961 pace, has a .292 average with 19 home runs and 72 runs batted in.
