I)ETROIT FREE PRESS Wednesday. July 14, '65 j-p i I BAD-HOPPER MAKES LOSER OF McDOWELL Tak alls runny Baseb Bounces BY LYALL SMITH Free Press Sports Editor BLO0MIXGT0N, Minn. Sam McDowell didn't really feel like a victim after the All-Star game. Just unlucky. The young Cleveland lefthander was undone by the cheapest of all National League hits Ron Santo's crazy hopper through the middle in the seventh inning.

After the three home runs that the Nationals had boomed off earlier pitchers, Santo's hit drove in Willie Mays with the run that made McDowell the loser. "We should have had a double play on it," McDowell said. "But it started taking those goofy hops and nobody could do anything with it. "IT BOUNCED OVER my head and over Bobby Richardson's head. Then it was too late for Zoilo Versalles.

"It was just one of those things that happen. Santo hit a good pitch, an inside slider. "It was the same pitch that Joe Torre hit right back to me. It had top spin on it, and it looked like it hit something on the ground." "All I know is it took a real funny bounce," said AL manager Al Lopez. "I couldn't tell why.

"There's no doubt it might have been a double play if the ball hadn't bounced so funny." IN THE END, McDowell, was shrugging it off as another experience to remember. An inning earlier, he had been feeling like one of the fans. "When he got on base I was sort of hoping he would take off," said McDowell of the sight of the Dodgers' base-stealing Maury Wills in the sixth. "I understand he runs pretty well. I just wanted to see him run." Where McDowell had been the loser, the Dodgers' great Sandy Koufax had been the winner.

"At least I got beat by the best," said McDowell. "I can't cry when I get beat by Koufax." KOUFAX, WHOSE 16-3 record i3 the finest in the majors, actually won while pitching one none-too-sharp 1 'C 1 1 1 I I I -I 4 1 Jw 4 I -irir 'Anemic 3 a 9 1 single outers? AL All-Stars Toppl inning. He threw hitless ball and struck out one batter, but he walked two others in his brief stint. "All my pitches were up," Koufax said. "I couldn't get the ball down.

"I know I was walking around out there, but I wasn't angry at the umpire, I was disgusted with myself. "Did you ever see me throw seven straight balls before? I may walk two men in a row, but I get a strike in there once in a while." Koufax was working though he had pitched a complete game only two days earlier on Sunday. "I wanted to pitch, and I told Gene Mauch whatever he wanted out of me was okay," said Koufax, proud of his status as the game's premier pitcher. "I had been selected for four years and hadn't pitched.

HE'S 34, GOING ON something more than 35, and this was his last stop on the minor league circuit before the Giants, then in New York, summoned Willie Mays up to the bigtime 15 years ago. This was his 16th All-Star game (they played two a year for a while, you know) and to say he starred in the other ones is to say statistically that he merely collected 20 hits in 51 official trips for a .392 average. Including items, naturally, like six stolen bases, three triples, a couple of doubles, a pair of homers and making fantastic catches look hum-drum. So when they introduced both All-Star squads up here Tuesday, the cheers proved he was Mr.

National League to them and it didn't take him long to prove it. He fouled the first pitch of the game from ex-Detroiter Milt Pappas. He parked the second one into the left-center seats for a home run. That was the first run of the 36th All-Star get-together. Six innings later, he scored the 11th run of the same melee and it was the winning one the 18th he has carried home in 16 games for another record.

"I kinda like this park," he grinned when it was over. "Let's face it, Willie," said winning manager Gene Mauch of the Thillies. "You like every park you ever saw Over where the losing American Leaguers were packing for the trip home and a resumption of their regular jobs, manager Al Lopex was visibly on the downcast side. This i3 the third time he has managed one of these games. He's never won one yet.

"We had our chances in the late innings," he theorized. "And we had our big guys up there. So we couldn't come through, that's all. "But we did come back after it looked like they were going to run us out of the country. We made it a game.

The "other half" of bigtime baseball the National League flew into the game's northern-most outpost here Tuesday; fabled Land of 10,000 Lakes and the mythical giant named Paul Bunyun. It came In for the first time to the sparkling new stadium of the Minnesota Twins, a spot hitherto reserved only for American Leaguers and their followers. With an early eruption of brute strength it threatened to create' more havoc than Bun-yon's sidekick, the frivolous blue ox named Babe, as its All-Stars pounded out three home runs to grab a quick five-run lead before the last of the 46,706 customers had found their seats THEN IT WAS sent reeling for a spell as the Americans, led by Detroit's Dick McAuliffe and a hometown muscle-man, Harmon (Killer) Killebrew, powered out a pair of two-run blasts to knot the score in the middle innings at five a side. But when the battle was over, the Nationals had the victory, 6-5, with the biggest run of all carried home by Willie Mays on a high hopping bouncer by Ron Santo of the Cubs that went no farther than second base.

It was an anemic hit, but lethal, as it gave the Nationals their first edge in the All-Star game series begun back in 1933 and played for the S6th time here on a muggy day that started with rain but wound up in bright sunshine. At one time, they trailed in victories, 4-12. But with their seventh win in the last eight decisions, the National Leaguers now have surged ahead, 18 to 17, with one game ending in a tie. Like most of the earlier ones, this game had a little bit of everything, plus a lot of power. THE FLEET Mr.

Mays, an old hand at such things, opened the action with a home run off Milt Pappas of the Orioles. Joe Torre, catcher of the Milwaukee-Atlanta Braves, hit a two-run blast off unhappy Milt in the same first inning. Willie Stargell, a Pirate slugger, drove in two more runs in the second inning off the early successor to Pappas, a local righthander in the form of Jim Grant.

His two-run homer and a single constituted two of the first three AL hits, and they only collected eight all day.

He led all American League players in the vote for the Most Valuable Player award, although Juan Marl chal won it, with Mays a close second and McAuliffe far behind. Dick scored two runs, drove in a pair with his homer off Jim Maloney of the Red3 and turned in the finest play of the game when he made a leap to spear a shot in the sixth by Joe Torre. Catcher Bill Freehan was the busiest Tiger, although he played only the four innings. First he caught Sam McDowell of the Indians, who blazes the ball. Then it was Eddie Fisher of the White Sox, who throws two pitches a knuckler and then another knuckler.

"The big mitt felt funny," Bill conceded. "Now I know how those guys feel when they run around with a net trying to catch butterflies." He borrowed one of the big flappy gloves especially designed to snare the darting dipping knuckleballs. Willie Horton played the whole game but failed to get the ball out of the infield. He grounded out twice, walked once and fanned. Toughest pitcher? "That first one," he said.
