HOP! STAR, HOfrf , ARKANSAS Monday, July 24, 1961 Here Is Roll of Famed Hempstead Rifles Reds Bounce Back to Lash Giants Twice By MURRARY ROSE As$o c ia'ed Press Sports Writer '•The Cincinnati Reds broke out of- a six-game losing streak Sunday by thumping the San Francisco Giants, 6-5 and 11-2. ; There apparently is no in-between pattern for Freddie Hutch- ihson's league-leading club. Either they win in batches or they lose the same way. The twin triumphs, engineered by 13 extra base hits including five homers, boosted the Reds' lead to I 1 2 games over the pressing Los Angeles Dodgers. The Dodgers, sparked by lion Fairly's When to Fish or Hunt Solunar Tables By John Alden Knight H»e gcheatuy of Solunar period IB printed below, has been take. from John Alden Knight's Soluna Tables.

This moved the surging : Braves past the Pirates into fourth place, only a half game behind the third-place Giants. The Chicago Cubs snapped a seven-game losing streak by belting four homers, including • two by Don Zimmer, for an 11-5 walloping of the Phillies at Philadelphia. : i In the American League, the. weary Detroit Tigers regained first place from the Yankees by sweeping a marathon douhlehcad- er from the Athletics at Kansas City. 6--!. 17-H, while the New Yorkers were nipped in the ninth by the Red Sox at Boston, ")-•!. Minnesota blanked Cleveland, 10-0: the White Sox beat Baltimore 5-2. and Los Angeles' Angels thumped Washington, 8-3. Hutchinson will get an idea of how long this streak is headed when his club takes on the Braves at Milwaukee in the only league game tonight. Joey Jay U3-5> faces Milwaukee's Bobby Hendley '3-2'. The Dodgers play the Baltimore Orioles in the Hall of Fame game at Cooperstown, N.Y. Jerry Lynch's second homer of the game in the ninth earned the fi-o opener for Bob Purkey 112-51 and pinned the defeat on reliever Sam Jones 17-6". The Reds also got homers from Frank Robinson' and Leo Cardenas. Ed Bailey, a former Red. delivered two homers and Orlando Cepeda one for the Giants. Robinson's second homer of th| day—his 28th of the season—and 14 other assorted blows made it a breeze for Jim O'Toolc '9-8 1 IN HER SATURDAY FEATURE ARficLEiN HOPE 1 STAR .of July 1 Mary Anita Laseter referred to a framed plaqoe showing the roll call of the Hempstead Rifles of June 6, 1861.
