in 7th.

Brock's fourth single, opening
the seventh, finally started the
National League champs on the
way to the tie-breaking run.
The left outfielder, who led
the league with 52 stolen bases,
just barely beat Russ Gibsons'
throw into second for a stolen
base on Santiago's first pitch to
Curt Flood.
When Flood grounded out to
first baseman George Scott,
Brock sped to third. Roger Mars,
the ex-New York Yankee who had
driven in the first run with an
infield out, did it again when he
happed sharply at second base-
man Jerry Adair.
Adair looked futilely "at Brock
nearing home plate and threw
out Maris.
It was the same combination
that produced the first Cardinal
run in the third when Broe;
lined up his second single to cen-
ter, romped to third on flood's
double to the left field'corner and
scored when Maris bounced out
to first baseman Scott.
From Out of the Past
Gibson, out of action with a
broken right leg from July 15
to Sept. 6, came throligh with
another gilt-edged performance
as he had done in earning the
star role in 1964 against the Yan-
kees.I
The ex-Harlem Globetrotter
basketball player held Carl Yas-
trzemski, the man who has car-
ried the Red -Sox on his back,
without a hit in four trips and
struck out two men in each of
the first, second, third and fifth
innings.
Rico Petrocelli was his strike-
out victim three straight times.
Although Yastrezemski went
hitless, the Red Sox's candidate
for the most'valuable player hon-
ors did himself proud in left field
with his fine defensive plays.
Anti-Missile Yaz
Yaz threw out Julian 'Javier,
trying to score from second on
Brock's single in the fourth with,
a perfect peg to Russ Gibson.
In the fifth inning he made a
leaping one-handed stab of
Flood's hard smash for a spec-
tacular out of what would have

been a sure double and a possible
triple.
Ironically, the two big hitters
failed to hit. In addition to Yas-
trzemski, Orlando Cepeda, the
Cards' MVP candiate went hit-
less.
He never hit the ball out of
the infield.
Cepeda rapped into a ninning-
ending double play, fouled out,
popped up and then fanned.
Santiago and Houdini
The first Series game played
at Fenway Park since 1946 pro-
vided plenty of thrills for the
standing room crowd of 34,796
as Santiago made more escapes
than a Houdini handcuffed in a
trunk at the bottom of the bay.
Santiago had men on first and
second with one out in the first,
getting out of it on Cepeda's
double play.,
St. Louis had the bases loaded
in the second with one out when
Bob Gibson slapped into a double
play.
There were men on second and
third with nobody out in the
third but Santiago got out of it
with only one run.
In fact, the Cards had a hit in
every inning during Santiago's

Brock: Finds Holes in Red Sox

BOB GIBSON

He had used Norm- Siebern as
a pinch hitter for Russ Gibson
in the seventh but he was still
at the plate when Reggis Smith
was out stealing.
Williams sent .Siebern to right
field in place of Ken Harrelson
and brought in Elston Howard
to catch.

S party' Kidnapped
Forty pounds of MSU football tradition has been lifted from
the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity house in East Lansing.
"Sparty," a large fiberglass football headpiece which is
paraded in front of the stands at each Michigan State game, was
reported missing Monday morning at breakfast.
Wisconsin, MSU's opponent this Saturday, and Michigan are
the two prime suspects. A Daily investigation revealed that the
head is in Ann Arbor. However, the Daily investigators hadn't
returned yet early this morning and neither had the headpiece. ,

By The Associated Press
BOSTON-What makes Lou Brock run?
Flaws.
"All pitchers have flaws," Brock said yesterday after he
lashed a record-tying four hits, stole two bases and scored both
runs in St. Louis' 2-1 victory over Boston in the opener of the
1967 World Series,
"Pitchers' flaws fall into three categories. You take just
one look at a pitcher and you can tell what his flaw is. Some
pitchers have flaws in their shoulders, some in their hips and
some in their feet.
"It doesn't matter who the pitcher is or whether you've
seen him before or not."
Brock never had seen, Jose Santiago, the Boston pitcher.
Yet the first time the Cardinal left fielder came to bat, he
singled and stole second on Santiago's first pitch to the next
batter.
"He had a flaw," the 28-year-old speedster explained. "I
spotted it right away."
Brock stood on a chair in front of his locker, a bottle of
orange pop in his right hand and a towel in his left hand.
He periodically wiped away the sweat that poured from his
face and neck. Occasionally a broad grin peeked through the
sweat.
In the previous two and a half hours, Brock had rapped
singles to left field, center field, left-center and right.
He raced to third on Flood's double in the third inning,
then scored on Roger Maris' ground out. In the seventh inning,
with the game tied 1-1, he singled, stole second, moved to third
on a ground out and scored again on another Maris grounder.
The second Maris grounder came with the infield in, but
as it turned out second baseman Jerry Adair didn't have a
chance for Brock at the plate and had to throw to first.
"Even if the ball had been hit right at him (Adair had
"I was cheating on the play. When a left-handed hitter
to dive to his left), I would have gone home," Brock said.
is up, you can cheat a little. If the ball is hit to the right
side, except to the pitcher, it's going to take a heck of a
- throw to get the runner. Actually I was halfway to the
plate when Maris hit the ball."
'Brock's four hits tied a Series record held by many, but his
two steals fell one short of equalling another mark.
"I was stealing on my own," said the 5'11" 170-pounder who
posted 52 thefts and collected 206 hits for a 299 average during
the regular season.
"I've been running on my own all year. I'm not going
to stop now in the series."
Someone asked Brock how he learned to be a base stealer.
"When it's your bread and butter, you better learn to do
something with it," he replied.
"I started studying pitchers three years ago, in 1964, when
Johnny Keane gave me the green light to run on my own.

"In studying pitchers, you have to know what to look
for in their shoulders, their hips and their feet. But I'm not
going to say what to look for."
Only in his fifth at-bat, in the ninth inning, did Brock fail
to hit. He drew a walk from John Wyatt.
"I knew I had tied the record," he explained, "because I
heard someone in the pressbox say it. But when I came up in the
ninth, I wasn't going to swing at a bad pitch just to go for the
record. I was happy to get a walk because it 'put a man on
second."
Even 30 minutes after the game was over, sweat continued
to pour from Brock. Someone asked how much weight he might
lose in a game like this one.
"I don't know," he said, "but I've lost as much as 11
pounds in one game."

seven-inning stay but were blank-
ed by relief man John Wyatt, an-
other Kansas City refugee, in the
eighth and ninth.
Two walks and a balk put
Wyatt in a jam in the ninth be-
fore Flood and Maris flied out.
Dick Williams, Boston's rookie
manager, pulled out all the stops
in the eighth, trying to salvage
the opener.

The made Siebern, Howard and
Jerry Adair the first three hiters
in the eighth.
Siebern singled, was sacrificed
to second but died there when
Adair and Jones went down.
The victory in bright 80-degree
sunshine tilted the odds even
more sharply in favor of the
Cards, who clinched their pen-
nant in a romp while the Red
Sox had to go down to the wire
Sunday.
For today's second game at Fen-
way, it will be another, battle of
right-handers.
Jim Longborg the 24-year-old
star of Sunday's clinching win over
Minnesota and a 22-9 winner in
regular ,season, will try to get
the Sox even.
He will be opposed by bespec-
tacled Dick Hughes, a 16-6 per-
former who finally made the big
leagues this year at 29 after nine
years in the Cardinal farm sys-
tem.

Really nice things are hard to find, so moyb6
that's why we are a bit off of the beaten path.
But we think that the largest and wildest selec-
tion of pierced earrings to be found anywhere,
including the new peacock and ostrich feather-
ed swingers, the wrap-arounds, exotic dangles
and jangles from all over the world, and 14kt
gold posts, will make you think it's worth the
trip. We feel that your budget will be a lot
happier at Pic-A-Pearl.
And, besides, the walk will do you good.
