Reds Pick Up Chips As LA, Giants Lose By The Associated Press Picking the Phillies to beat the Dodgers and the Mets to beat the Giants on the same evening is something like drawing to an inside straight. Usually the house gets rich on such odds. Wednesday night, how- c CY. it was the Cincinnati Reds \vhn picked up the chips. The on-rushing Reds, making a rl-u-rmincd stab at repeating as Normal League champs, used KdcKc Kasko's 10th inning grand si:,in homer to beat the Chicago Cubs 9-5 while the leading Los Angeles Dodgers and second-place San Francisco Giants took their lumps from a couple of also-rans. The stumbling Dodgers lost to Philadelphia 5-1 as Chris Short pitched a three-hitter while San Francisco had New York on the ropes, then let the Mets get away 5-4. H was the eighth loss in 11 starts for Los Angeles, and San Francisco's third straight and six in the last seven. Cincinnati, on the other hand, has won 15 of its last 18 and has made up six games on the Dodgers in 13 days. The Reds now trail Los Angeles by only four games—the closest Cincinnati has been since the second week of the season—and are only a half game behind San Francisco. Los Angeles retains a 3'.i game margin over San Francisco. Pittsburgh got three-hit pitching from Tom Sturdivant, blanking relieved by Bob Garibaldi after walking Richie Ashburn. A single Houston 3-0 and Milwaukee rallied to beat St. Louis 6-4 in the others. The Reds, rapidly regaining the form that brought them the pennant last season, got support from an unexpected source in the victory over the Cubs. Kasko, who faces possible loss of his starting assignment with the return of Gene Freese from the injured list, had hit only one home run this season before he unloaded with three men on base in the 10th. It was only his 15th homer in six major league seasons. He took over third after Freese, out most of the season with a broken ankle, was lifted for a pinch runner in the seventh. Cub rookie second baseman Ken Hubbs extended his errorless play through 65 games and ran his string of flawless chances to 352. Short, a lefty, was damaged only by Frank Howard's home run in pitching the Phils past the Dodgers. A walk to Bob Oldis, a sacrifice and Tony Taylor's line single broke a 1-1 tie for the Phils in the seventh and home runs by Johnny Callison and Don Demeter put it out of reach in the eighth. San Francisco rallied from a three-run deficit to tie the Mets 4-4 in the top of the eighth, only to lose it in the bottom of the inning. Ken MacKenzie reached base on an error leading off the Met eighth and Don Larsen was by Charlie Neal drove In the lie- breaker. Knuckleball specialist Sturdivant had a no-hitter for 4 1-3 innings as Pittsburgh eliminated Houston from the race. The only Colt hits were singles by Hal' Smith and Al Spangler and a double by Bob Lillis. Bob Skinner's two-run triple in the third was all the hitting support Slurdivant needed. Del Crandall delivered an eighth inning pinch hit single that drove in two runs, breaking a 4-4 tie and bringing Milwaukee its fourth straight victory at the expense of St. Louis. The Braves spotted the Cards a 4-1 lead, but worked from behind on th« relief pitching of Jack Curtis, who allowed only one hit in four innings. THUK., AUGUST 23, 1962, lafce Colts Eliminated From Pennant Race HITS THE DECK — Fred Whitfield of ihe St. Louis Cardinals falls io the ground after being hit on his right wrist by a pitch thrown by Bob Shaw of the Milwaukee Braves in the fifth inning of Wednesday's game at Milwaukee. Whitfield look his base and continued in the game, which the Braves won 6-4. <AP Wirepholo.) PITTSBURGH (AP)-To those who fearlessly predicted the Houston Colts wouldn't win the National league pennant this year, fret no further. They won't. The Colts, winners of 45 games in 126 tries in their first year, officially were eliminated from the pennant race Wednesday night, losing to Pittsburgh 3-0 on Tom Sturdivant's three-hitter. Even with this fate, Manager Harry Craft isn't complaining. "We haven't even thought of being eliminated," Craft said. "It's farthest from our minds. We still have a tremendous lot of work to do the rest of the season." The ninth-place Colts are the srconrl team to drop from the official chasp. The New York Mets arcomplished it earlier this month. "In one sense, we're not, disappointed." said Craft, who became used to disappointment with th« lowly Kansas City Athletics hi the American League. "Before the season, all of the polls had us ; finishing m 10th place. ! "If we can't stay out of last 1 with the spread between us and the Mets we better hang them up. I even think there's a chance that we'll finish eighth. We're only a game and a half from there now. I "We're competing with teams I that have been in business a long 1 time. Last year at this time we , didn't have anything. Some of the teams we play have been in operation more than a half century. And we're trying to make progress against these established clubs. "We've had some fellows improve a whole lot since the start of the season," he commented. "Look at Bob Aspromonte, Carl i Warwick and Roman Mejias.
