THE DETROIT DAILY PRESS Page 7 The New York Yankees can do no worse than finish tied for the American League pennant! Only the Chicago White Sox have a chance to catch the Bronx Bombers. In the National League, it's still the St. Louis Cards on top by a half game over Cincinnati with the Phillies IV2 games back and San Francisco two off the pace. In fact, it's possible for the N. L. chase to wind up in a four-way tie. For that to happen, the St. Louis Cards would have to lose their remaining two games with the New York Mets, while Philadelphia beats Cincinnati in its final game Sunday and the Giants take their last two from the Chicago Cubs. The perennial champion Yanks reduced their magic number to one for sewing up an outright flag Friday night by beating the Cleveland Indians, 5-2. The White Sox kept alive their hopes for a tie by taking Kansas City, 3-2 and 5-4. Whitey Ford turned in a sparkling four hitter to post his 17th win and didn't allow a batter past second after the second inning. The Yanks scored all their runs in one inning with a two-run double by Elston Howard and a three-run circuit by Tom Tresh, the big blows. Juan Pizzaro received credit for his 19th win and Hoyt Wilhelm gained his 21st save in the White Sox opening win. In the nightcap, the Chisox blew a 3-0 lead, then rebounded to win in the ninth on a single by Don Bufford, two passed balls, two intentional walks and a single by Bill Skowron. Wilhelm was the winner. The Cards blew a golden opportunity when they lost to the lowly New York Mets, 1-0. Cincinnati dropped a 4-3 verdict to the Philadelphia Phillies, who finally snapped a 10-game losing streak. San Francisco breezed past the Chicago Cubs, 9-0. Al Jackson was too much for the Cards. He scattered five hits as he picked up his 11th win of the season. The Cards mustered only one serious threat when they jammed the bases in the eighth. The game's lone run off loser Bob Gibson (18-12) came in the third inning. George Altman, an ex-Cardinal, singled, stole second and came around to score on a single by Ed Kranepool. A four-run uprising in the eighth inning pulled Phillies out and jolted the Reds' hopes of moving into first place. Jim O'Toole of the Reds was breezing along. fin a three-hitter until the Phillies erupted. Richie Allen slugged a two-run triple and ex-Detroit sandlot star Alex Johnson singled in what proved the winning mark off Bill McCool, who suffered the setback in relief. The win went to Ed Roebuck, the second of three Philadelphia pitchers who relieved Chris Short in the second after the Reds had jumped in front, 3-0. The Phillies outhit the Reds, 8-4. Bob Bolin was on the mound and had no trouble for the Giants. Saturday, October 3, 1964 NIL Uoe; I fc I 'A! " ""fi ' .V- j-'-' . 5P -Sx li,-:. ::..'

They trimmed the Detroit Tigers, 10-4, but saw their last chance to finish in a tie for first place vanish when the New York Yankees beat Cleveland, 5-2. A six-run, second inning which chased Joe Sparma, settled matters early and brought Robin Roberts his 13th win against seven losses. The game was played in a thick fog and many fly balls literally disappeared. The umpires . awarded homers to Brooks Robinson in the fourth and Don Demeter in the fifth when they never saw the ball land anywhere. The two teams end their season Saturday. Robinson with four RBIs upped his league lead to 117. Bill Freehan had three hits and three RBIs for the Tigers. Green Smashes Speed Record BONNEVILLE, Utah Tom Green set a new land mark for autos when he was clocked at 413.2 m.p.h. Friday in a jet-powered car.

May Ban Boxing . BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) A member of Argentina's Progressive Democrat Party Thursday night presented a motion in congress seeking to ban professional boxing following the death of lightweight Adrian Servin, 29, last week. By MORRIS MOORSWNICK Denby, perennial favorite in the East Side City League football race, struggled to its 33rd consecutive East Side triumph with a hard-fought, 6-0 victory over a determined Mufford team Friday. The win kept the Tars tied for the division lead with Eastern and Southeastern, all boasting 2-0 records. On the West Side, Redford, Cooley and Southwestern each posted win number two to share first place. Denby rolled to the game's only score in the first period after returning a punt to the Mumford 47. With Tom Kaminski carrying twice for 14 yards and Jim Cotter running four more, the Tars moved to the 29. PENALTY HURTS An offside penalty set Denby back to the 34, but quarterback Jim Miloser flipped a long pass to end Don Warnke who amblea into the end zone for six points. j Denby fumbled away the ball after reaching the Mus-! tang 21, 5 and one-yard line in the second half and Mum-i ford blew its only opportuni-J ty when a 30-yard pass from; Larry Young to Mike Buck- j ner to the Tar 4 was nulli-1 fied by a penalty. j Doug Shubeck ran 80 yards for a score on the game's, opening kickoff for Finney j but Eastern shut the door af-j ter that in a 26-6 decision, j Lenny Davis scored threes times for the Indians on! romps of 51, 19 and 1 yards, j Cooley used 54 players in a 42-7 rout of Wilbur Wright. Quarterback Ron Strebendt threw two TD aerials to end Charles Savage (45, 11) and went 10 yards on a keeper. George Arvan added touch-1 rfnunc rr lO an A 9 .vairl runsl and Tom Monte went 22-yardsj for the other Cardinal score, j A 28-yard touchdown pass: from Dan Kennedy to Ken Jackson in the game's last four minutes gave Southwestern a 20-15 decision over Henry Ford. The Prospectors stopped a Ford drive on its own five in the final quarter and marched 95 yards in 14 plays for the winning marker. Halfback Grant Hilburn scored twice for Southwestern and finished the day with 105 yards. SLAM PAST WESTERN Redford scored early and often to slam past Western, 39-6. Seven different Huskies shared in the point parade with Art Sullivan's 33-yard TD run the longest. Central High's regular fullback couldn't play because of a badly-pulled thigh muscle so coach Corky Fosker converted end Larry James to the position and he responded with three touchdowns to lead the Trailblazers to a 18-0 romp over Northeastern. George and Roger Brooks, a Chadsey brother combination fired the Explorers to a 21-12 decision over Northwestern. Touchdowns by Bill Esters and Ron Johnson gave the Colts a 12-0 halftime edge, but Chadsey bounced back with 21 second-half points. ! 25-YARD RUN Charles Brown circled end on a quarterback keep for a 25-yard touchdown and James Swint converted to give Pershing its 7-6 margin over Cass Tech. Cody dominated play all the way but a last ditch pass by 10th grader Marv Gurley in the last minute for a 35-yard score gave Mackenzie a 6-6 tie. Fred Anderson's four-yard burst was all Cody could muster in the scoring column with two drives stopped by penalties and one touchdown called back. RACING ENDS TONIGHT Featuring TWIN DOUBLE R starvations JO 6-1595 10 MILE at DEQUINDRE FRED BKIKR, University of Detroit fullback, stiff arms Dennis Smith to pick up valuable yardage in the Titans game BY BOB PILLE Three long touchdown drives and defense when necessary took Cincinnati past the University of Detroit, 19-0, Friday night. The Bearcats had all the slickness advertised in quarterback Brig Owens, and they had a defense that was de? ceptively effective. Owens handled all three ; touchdown thrusts, an 86- j yard march in the opening moments and two drives from just beyond midfield in the second half. If Owens didn't get all his advertised yardage he had 52 running, 28 passing it was because he had a platoon of quick backs who could get it just as well for unbeaten Cincinnati's second victory. The Bearcats had a half-dozen backs spread between 75 and 22 yards apiece rushing, and the Cincinnati total of 262 running yards overshadowed the 93 allotted to Titan runners. Fred Beir punched out 32 yards, Mike Randall 27, and Joey D'Angelo 23, and that was about it for U-D. 'CATS STRIKE EARLY For Cincinnati, Al Nelson slashed to touchdowns from four yards and seven yards out, and Errol Prisby simply out-ran everybody nine yards around left end with a pitch-out for the other. Owens was at his best taking the Bearcats 86 yards in 13 plays to Nelson's first Hockey Clinic j Set at Olympia The Detroit Red WinEs and the Metro Junior Hockey League are sponsoring a coaches' hockey clinic at Ol-ympia Stadium at 9 a.m. Sunday morning.
