73 DETROIT FREE PRESS Friday, Juiv 30. IPoS 2,1 SPORTS That'll Teach You NotfoBet An American newsman who bet on the wrong team in the All-Star baseball game teed off at the base of Japan's Mt. Fujiyama at 5:30 a.m. Ten hours, 50 minutes, 27 olf balls and 1,275 strokes later. Don Schuck sank a 150- yard "putt" into the crater of tie Ruben Gomez, really took the famed 12,395-foot volcano, it out on the little southpaw's "It's the one putt in my life teammates Thursday. 1 Knew i couldn t miss, Adcock 'Murders' Giants, 13 to 3 Slams Out 2 Homers; Nets 8 RBI 13 Brave Hits Make Spalm's Job Easy Free Pmt Wire Service Joe Adcock, Milwaukee's muscular first baseman who never quite caught up with lit Schuck said. The almost perfect circle crater is 2,000 feet across. SCHICK DROVE the ball ahead stroke by stroke in the 11-mile climb up the mountain side. Much of the time he had to gently scoop-hit the ball over rocks and lava crevices. Many shots were under 10 yards and a few resulted in net losses when the ball bounded back off rocks. A hook or slice would send the ball fading into the. misty, cloudy atmosphere hanging-over the upper part of the mountain. "I was so sure the American League team would win the All-Star game," said Schuck, "that I got foolish and said T'd drive a ball up Fuji if the Nationals won. "Next time, I'll keep my mouth shut or bet money." Gentle Conflict "In match play, there's no tomorrow. One bad round and you're out. In medal competition you al ways have a chance to come back." JACKIE BURKE, who favors a change in the method of de-t e r m i n i ng PGA tournament champion. "In match With a grand-slam homer, a i three-run homer and two additional bits, Adcock drove in eight runs to lead Milwaukee to a 13-3 victory over the New York Giants. ! ADCOCK AND Gomez were the principals in the ball-fling ing rnuDarD luesaay nigni which drew a three-day suspension and $250 fine for Gomez and $100 fine for Adcock. Adcock got his money's worth off Jim Hearn Thursday. He ' hammered a grand-slam homer in the first inning, and a three-! run 375-foot smash off Dick jLittlefield in the sixth. He also doubled in the third and singled to drive in a run in the fourth. His RBI total is the top mark for a single game in the National League this season. Eddie Mathews drove in three other Brave runs with two singles and a double. Warren Spahn benefited from the 15-hit Milwaukee attack. He yielded eight hits while gaining his victory.
