Giants Trim Af/anfa, 6-4 To Earn Tie For Second By MURRAY CHASS Associated Press Sports Writer The All-Star voters, Hank Aaron said about his selection to the National League team, must have voted the first day of the season. Aaron showed again Thursday why he made that quip. Atlanta's erstwhile batting terror grounded into double plays his last two times at bat as the San Francisco Giants trimmed the Braves 64 and tied them for second place. Aaron's lack of hitting has been evident all season. True, he has hit 15 home runs, second best in the league, and driven in 43 runs, sixth in the NL. Average Is Low But a large portion of those RBI has not significantly aided the Atlanta attack, and he's hit- ting an incredibly low .231. That compares with his .316 lifetime average, tops among active players. Still his fellow players voted him into the starting line-up for the All-Star game in Houston next Tuesday. Against the Giants Thursday, the 34-year-old Aaron singled in the fifth inning, stole second and scored on Joe Torre's single. But it was a different story 'each of the other four times he batted, especially the last two. Coming to the plate in the seventh with Felipe Alou at first base, and the game tied 4-4, Aaron grounded a Frank Linzy pitch to shortstop Hal Lanier, who promptly turned it into a double play. By the ninth inning the anything with Dietz'. The Giant catcher drove in four runs with a two-run double in the first and a two-run homer in the seventh that snapped the 4-4 deadlock. Bobby Bonds contributed a two- run single to the Giants' attack. Mike Shannon's two-run homer in the eighth broke a 1-1 tie and sent the league-leading Cardinals to their fourth straight victory over Los Angeles. Len Gabrielson made it close for the Dodgers with a homer in the bottom of the inning. Koosman Loses Eighth-inning doubles by Bridge By ALFRED SHEINWOLD Braves were they rallied trailing 6-4, and loaded but the Dave McNary Captures July 4 Golf Tournament Dave McNary earned championship honors Thursday in the Freeport Country Club Fourth of July golf tournament. McNary shot a 76 and won the tourney after his nine hand- cap was subtracted to give him a score of 67. Ted Seely had the low gross score with a 72. A putting contest was held for boys and girls. Winners in the boys competition were Stephen Frank, Jerry Vickers, Tom Bauch, Jim Terry, Mark Seely and Wally Young. Girls winners were Mary Ann Haas, Sue Hoover, Paula Bunchman, Elaine Ryan and Janet Katel. Cyclist Hurt In Racing Crash Here James Schaffitzel, injured Thursday during the motorcycle races at Freeport Speedway, was listed in satisfactory condition at Freeport Memorial Hospital today. Schaffitzel, a 25-year-old from Jefferson, Wis., sustained multiple abrasions to his body while participating in one of the races. Box Scores Absolute Certainty Is Declarer's Goal When a player makes a fine play for his contract you don't want to carp at him for failing to find a better play. Still, you aren't completely out of order if you point out that a 100% chance is better than a 90% chance. South tried dummy's jack of diamonds at the first trick, but East covered with the queen and South had to take the ace. De- bases with one out on a walk to Mike Page and singles by Alou and Clete Boyer. Up stepped Aaron needing only a single to tie the game. Instead he bounced back to Linzy, who flipped to Dick Dietz at the plate for one out, and Dietz fired to first for the final out. Other Scores In other NL games, St. Louis edged Los Angeles 3-2, Pittsburgh nipped New York 3-2 before losing 4-3, Philadelphia downed Chicago 74 after losing 6-2 and Cincinnati defeated Houston 7-4. While Linzy was stifling Aaron's bat, the Braves couldn't do Donn Clendenon and Bill Mazeroski carried Pittsburgh past New York in the first game and handed Jerry Koosman his fourth loss against 11 victories. Koosman drove in one of the Mets' runs with a single. Maury Wills stole three bases for the Pirates in the game. The Mets came back in the nightcap behind Don Bosch, who socked a two-run homer in the third, then doubled and scored in the fifth, Cleon Jones added a homer for the Mets. Alex Johnson and Mack Jones each drove in three runs in Cincinnati's victory over Houston. Johnson singled across one run and Jones two in the three-run uprising in the ninth that was the difference. clarer drew three rounds ol trumps, cashed the ace of spades and got to dummy with a trump to re'urn a spade. The spade finesse lost, anc West returned a diamond to dummy's king. South then ruffec a diamond, cashed the king of spades and counted West's hand. " West had already played three spades, three trumps and four diamonds (he had discarded a diamond on the fourth trump) West could hold only three clubs at most, which meant that Eas had started with at least four clubs.

South complained bitterly about his bad luck since the diamond and spade queens had been unfavorably placed and then the queen of clubs was in the short club hand. He got no sympathy from anybody, and might have reflected that a man who has no luck with queens looks like a fool; and if he talks about, he also sounds like a fool. After taking the ace of dia- monds and three rounds of trumps South should cash the king of diamonds, ruff a diamond and then lead out the ace, king and jack of spades. The opponent who wins the queen of spades will be unable o make a safe return. A club return gives declarer a free finesse; any other return allows dummy to ruff while South dis- cards his losing club.
