By The Associated Press
NEW YORK-Four home runs,
two of them in successive turns
at bat by John Blanchard, gave
the Yankees a 5-2 victory over
the Chicago White Sox and pre-
served New York's thin grasp on
first place in the torrid American
League race yesterday.
Blanchard had homered as a
ninth-inning pinch hitter in both
the Friday and Saturday games at
Boston and thus became the sev-
enth major leaguer to hit home
runs in four consecutive appear-
ances at the plate. Ralph Kiner,
one-time Pittsburgh great, did it
twice.
Mickey Mantle, who preceded
Blanchard in the batting order,
got his 39th of the year in the
first inning and drew even with
Johnny Mize, hitting star of a
decade ago, in the all-time homer
derby with 359. Babe Ruth had a
career total of 714 and his 60 in
1927 is Mantle's target.
The Yankees got eight homers
in the twin bill with the White
Sox Tuesday night and now have
smashed 31 since the all-star game
on July 11. They now have collect-
ed 135 for the season. The major
league mark is 221 by the New
York Giants of 1947 and equalled
by Cincinnati in 1956. The Yanks
of 1956 top the American League
with 190.
All the Yankee runs were
counted on homers. Bobby Rich-
ardson opened tle first inning
by drawing a walk from Ray Her-
bert and scored ahead of Mantle.
Then came Blanchard's first
poke.
In the fourth Blanchard's rec-
ord-equally smash was followed
by Clete Boyer's seventh of the
year. It was his third in two
games.
Roger Maris, who got four
homers Tuesday night to boost
his major league lead to 40, went
hitless.
Orioles 5-9, Red Sox 1-2
BALTIMORE-Four Baltimore
Oriole pitchers limited the Boston
Red Sox to eight hits last night
as the Orioles swept a twi-night
doubleheader, 5-1 and 9-2.
Billy Hoeft, Wes Stock and
Hoyt Wilhelm combined for a two-
hitter in the opener, striking out
14 Boston batters and leaving 10
base runners stranded..
Jack Fisher hurled a six-hitter
in the nightcap as he won his
fourth decision after nine losses.
The Red Sox were held hitless for
91/3 innings from the fourth in-
ning of the first game until Jack-,
ie Jensen doubled to open the;
fifth inning of the nightcap.
Jim Gentile and Jackie Brandt
each knocked in three runs for
Baltimore in the second game.
Gentile's 28th homer, off loser;
Gene Conley (4-10) in the fifth
inning, upped his RBI total to 93.-
Brandt singled home one run in
Baltimore's 3-run fifth, and two
more during a 5-run eighth in-
ning rally off Mike Fornieles. ;
Jensen scored one Boston runi
in the fifth when Oriole catcher
Gus Triandos dropped the ball on
a tag play at the plate. Jens4,A
singled to knock in another in
the sixth.1
Hoeft allowed one run in the1
opener before a blister forced him
to retire in the sixth inning. Re-1
lievers Stock and Wilhelm each
pitched two innings of hitless ball
and struck out for apiece. Stock,
the winner, is now 5-0.
Baltimore scored five runs off1
Bill Monbouquette, four of them
unearned, in the seventh inning.
Two runs scored on the pitcher's
bases-loaded throwing error. I
Boston. catcher Jim Pagiaroni
suffered an injury to his right
thumb on a foul tip in the eighth
inning of the opener and had to
leave the game.

i

Cubs 7, Cardinals 6
CHICAGO-Pinch batter Bobby
Will's two-out single with the
bases full scored the winning run
as the Chicago Cubs defeated the
St. Louis Cardinals and Lindy
McDaniel 7-6 in 12 innings yes-
terday.
After George Altman fanned
to open the 12th, Ron Santo sin-
gled and moved to second when
McDaniel threw out catcher Sam-
my Taylor. Santo took third on a
wild pitch, and both Ernie Banks
and Ed Bouchee were purposely
t passed to fill the bases.
Then Will came off the bench
and stroked his 22nd hit of the
1 season on McDaniel's 2 and 1
pitch to score Santo.
The victory, the Cubs' fifth in
18 games between the two teams
thus far, enabled the Chicagoans
to snap a five-game losing streak
against St. Louis.
Barney Schultz chalked up his
fourth win among six decisions
via his eighth relief role in the
past 10 days.
After Julian Javier lifted the
Cardinals into a 3-3 tie with his
first homer of the season in the
eighth, the game turned into a
slugfest.
The Cubs took a 6-3 lead in
their half as Ernie Banks, absent
from the lineup as a starter for
11 straight games, stroked his 14th
homer in a pinch batter role off
Ed Bata.
Banks' blast, his first homer
since July 7, followed Billy Wil-I
liams' single and an intentional
pass to Sammy Taylor, anothera
pinch batter.
The Cardinals tied it up, 6-6,
in the ninth when Ken Boyer
doubled across the first run and
Stan Musial used his second single
of the day to drive in two more
runs.
* * *
Dodgers 6, Phillies 1
PHILADELPHIA - Norm Lark-
er clouted the first grand slam
home run of his career last nightt
as the Los Angeles Dodgers con-
tinued their rush towards the top
of the National League with a 6-1
victory over the Philadelphia Phil-
lies.
Larker, a line-drive type hitter,l
sent a screaming wallop over the
rightfield wall with Willie Davis,
Wally Moon and Tommy Davis
on base with two out in the eighth
inning. Frank Sullivan, a right-t
hander, was on the mound for ther
Phillies. It was Larker's fifthc
round-tripper of the campaign.
"I was just trying to get the fatF
of the bat on the ball," Larkere
said afterward.
The blow broke, up a tight 2-1t
mound duel between Don Drys-c
dale and Sullivan, who replaced1
Jim Owens when the latter left;
after the third inning due to aa
muscle spasm in his right should-t
er.
It was Drysdale's eighth win in1
14 decisions and his ninth straightv
over the Phillies in a three-season7
span. Owens has won one and
lost four.7
John Roseboro, elevated to thec
third slot in a batting order thatt
contained six lefthanded swingers,s
drove in the first Los Angeless
runs with a single in the third in-s
ning. On the safety, Willie Davisf
went to third and came inpas t
Moon grounded into a double play.
* * *
Pirates 8, Giants 3 d
PITTSBURGH - Pitcher Bob
Friend broke a tie with a two-outV
bases-loaded single in the sixthe
inning last night, and Pittsburghs

went on to defeat San Francisco
8-3.
The victory halted the Pirates'
five-game losing streak.
The right-hander's hit to left
field, with the game knotted 3-3,
came after Dick Lemay walked
Bob Clemente, gave a single to
Don Hoak and walked Bill Mazer-
oski.
Friend, who was rattled for 11
hits in the first five innings, went
the distance for his 10th victory
against 13 defeats. H held the
Giants to one hit through the last
four frames.
San Francisco starter Jack
Salford held the Pirates hitless
through 41/3 innings but was shell-
ed for three runs on four hits in
the fifth.
Smoky Burgess got the first
hit, a triple to left-center. A
walk to Hoak and singles by Maz-
eroski, Bill Virdon and Dick
Groat followed.
That rally stalemated the con-
test as the Giants had scred
three in their half of the fifth.
Harvey Kuenn singled and scored
on Matty Alou's triple, his sixth
consecutive hit in the series. Wil-
lie Mays then singled, sending
Alou home. Mays stole second and
came around on Ed Bailey's sin-
gle.
Lemay, the second of three Gi-
ant hurlers, suffered his third
loss. He has two victories.
Mazeroski, with two singles, ex-
tended his hitting streak to 13
games. Clemente, who walked
twice, had his 13-game streak
halted.
* * *
Twins 10, Senators 9
MINNEAPOLIS - ST. PAUL -
Minnesota withstood an extra-
base hit barrage by Washington
last night and went on to a 10-9
victory over the Senators.
A four-run sixth inning wrap-
ped things up for the Twins and
gave reliever Bery Cueto his first
major league victory. He has lost
three.
. It took Ray Moore, the fifth
Twins' pitcher, to preserve the
victory. He came on in the ninth
with men on first and third, one
out and one run in. He struck out
pinchhitters Chuck Hinton and
Chuck Cottier.
Julio Becquer drove in the ty-
ing run in the sixth with a pinch
single. Then, after Becquer went
to second on an outfield fly, Len-
ny Green sent the Cuban and thei
walking Ted Lepcio across with aJ
one-bagger up the middle. Harmon
Killebrew's RBI double complet-
ed the scoring.
The Senators banged out a to-t
tal of seven extra base hits, in-
cluding three doubles, a triple and
home runs by Chuck Cottier,
starting pitcher, Benny Daniels
and Billy Klaus. Klaus's was a
three-run shot in a five-run
Washington sixth inning. Marty
Keough drove in the other twof
with a triple, giving the Nats a1
7-6 lead.
A total of 18,658 watched the
Twins stake starter Camilo Pas-_
cual to 3-0 and 6-2 leads before
the righthander was lifted in the
sixth. The crowd brought Minne-
sota's total attendance for the
season to 747,820, or 4,416 more
fans than the team drew the en-
tire season uin bWashington.h -
Lepcio clubbed a three-run
homer for the Twins and Greent
drove in four runs.]
Dave Sisler, the third of fivet
Washington pitchers, was the los-
er of his fifth game in seven
starts.

\,

Now that he has taken on all
comers in the broad jump, Ralph
Boston suddenly has found himself
pressed into emergency service as
a hop, step and jumper.
The world record holder (27-
1%) from Tennessee A&I will be
the No. 2 U. S. jumper against
Poland Saturday and Sunday, and
he already is thinking big.
"Boy," he said today, "would I
like to catch that world record
holder against the wall and beat
him."
Boston was thinking about
Jozef Schmidt of Poland, who
holds the world hop, step and
jump mark of 55 feet,10/ 4in-
ches. This is a big event behind
the Iron Curtain and around Po-
land they can't understand why
more Americans don't go in for it.
Boston will replace Bill Sharpe,
who was sent home to Philadel-

phia Monday because of a bad
leg. Ira Davis has the best jump
ever by an American, 53-10, which
he made at the Olympics in Rome
last year.
"I never have competed in the
hop, step and jump seriously,"
said Boston. "In fact the last time
I tried it was back in the states
when I saw a prize list that
awarded nice luggage to the win-
ners. So I won a suitcase.
"But I'll go at it to win this
time. I don't know how far I can
go, but I'm certain I should be
able to do a lot better than, say,
50 feet."
Schmidt, who has had an ap-
pendectomy recently, as of late
has been getting beaten regularly
by his teammate, Ryszard Mal-
cherczyk, who has a 53-11%/4 to
his credit.
If Schmidt doesn't improve,
Boston may have to worry more
about Malcherczyk.
"I don't mind competing in both
the hop, step and jump and the
broad jump," said the angular
Boston. "It was a tough break that
Sharpe got hurt, so if I can step
in and get some points, I'm happy
to do it.
"There's really not aneawful lot
of difference between the broad
jump and the hop, step and jump.
I think there is more pressure on
your legs in the spring in the hop,
step and jump, but not much else
except a lot of practice."

WARSAW O) - Big Jay Silves-
ter, an Army lieutenant from

Trementon, Utah, thinks he is
ready to:
1) Break the world discus rec-
ord.
2) Break another "impossible"
barrier-200 feet.
3) Show the world champ how
it's done.
Silvester will have a chance to
do all three in the United States-
Poland track meet Saturday and
Sunday.
The discus is the big event on
the program for the Poles. They
have the co-world record holder
in Edmund Piatkowski (196-61/2)
and he's practically a national
hero.
"I'm ready as I'll ever be for the
big one," said the confident Sil-
vester. "I had a couple of fouls
over the record in our meet with
West Germany and another
against Great Britain.
"There's no doubt that I'm
ready. I threw one 201 feet in
practice the other day, so I know
it can be done."
Silvester said he has been build-
ing up to this meeting with Piat-
kowski all year. Against Russia,
Germany and Great Britain, he
knew he had nothing to worry
about. Now he does.
"I've been having one little
problem," said Silvester, "that has
me worried. I haven't been sleep-
ing well and that can hurt an
athlete more than anything else.
You can't coordinate your muscles
when you are tired. But I hope
to get plenty of sleep before we
hook up."

Palmer Determined To Take
PGA Championship for Crowmn

CHICAGO (A) - Arnold Palmer,
determined to complete the cycle
reserved only for the greats' of
golf, begins his bid for his fourth
major title within 16 months to-
day in the PGA Championship at
picturesque Olympia Fields.
The bronzed, strong boy from
Latrobe, Pa. - fresh and eager
after winning the British Open
10 days ago - needs only the PGA
Championship to put the fourth
and final jewel in the crown of
golf he's worn the last two years.
Palmer is a 5-1 favorite to win
the championship and become the
third player of all time to com-
plete professional golf's "grand
slam."
Winner of the Masters and U.S.
Open in 1960, the muscular young
pro from Latrobe, Pa., added the
British Open crown recently at
Birkdale. Now he needs only the
PGA to complete the magic cycle
achieved only by Ben Hogan and
Gene Sarazen.
Bob Jones, the great amateur
of sport's golden era, won the U.S.
Open and Amateur and the Brit-
ish Open and Amateur in a single
year - 1930 - but he was in-
eligible for the PGA.
"My ambition always has been
to win the big four championships
(British and U.S. Opens, Masters
and PGA) in a single year," Pal-
mer said, "but, failing this, I'll
settle for doing it in two years."
Palmer tees off at 9:54 a.m.
over the famed Olympia Fields
North Course with his chief rival
for the year's golf honors, Gary
Player of South Africa, and Don
January of Dallas.

Player, winner of the 1961 Mas-
ters in which he beat out Palmer
by a single stroke, is second fa-
vorite at 6-1 and others fall back
at even greater odds, including the
defending champion, Jay Herbert,
at 10-1 and Gene Littler, the U.S.
Open Champion, at 12-1.
Littler is a forlorn, forgotten
figures in this 72-hole event, which
has drawn a field of 168 ranking
professionals. He has been prac-
ticing in semi-privacy. The experts
have given him hardly a tumble.
"I'm not worried about it," said
the taciturn stylist. "I'm playing
all right."
The star-spangled field of tourn-
ament tourists and stay-at-home
instructors includes 14 past win-,

ners of the championship, plus a
heavy flavoring of former Open
and Masters winners. Sam Snead
is seeking his fourth PGA and
Denny Shute his third.
None is yet in a position of
challenging the five PGA victor-
ies of the great Walter Hagen, who
captured the third of his titles
over this same course in 1925. It
was here also that Johnny Farrell
beat Bob Jones in a playoff for
the Open Championship in 1928.
Olympia Field's North Course is
a rolling layout of 6,722 yards,
toughened by new and heavier
rough and 13 additional fairway
traps. Snead and others have com-
plained that its target area has
been so slenderized that the course
is grossly unfair.

Davis Cup Star Beaten
As Froehling Advances

HAVERFORD, Pa. (R) - Frank
Froehling of Coral Gables upset
top-seeded Chuck McKinley, U.S.
Davis Cup player, 6-2, 8-6, yes-
terday to reach the quarter-final
round of the Pennsylvania Lawn
Tennis Championship at Merion
Cricket Club.
Froehling, recent runner-up for
the Irish Championship, cracked
McKinley's service in the final
game to win. He and McKinley
are members of the Trinity Col-
lege Varsity at San Antonio, Tex.
In another upset, John Powless,
U.S. Junior Davis Cup team coach
of Aurora, Ill., defeated third-
seeded Vic Seixas, Philadelphia,
winner of the championship seven
times since 1946.
The score was 6-4, 2-6, 6-3.
Jack Frost,' Monterey, Calif.,

came from behind Dennis Ral-
ston, a Davis Cup player from
Bakersfield, Calif., 4-6, 6-3, 6-4.
Bob Mark, Australia Davis Cup
player, put out the eighth-seed-
ed American, Ramsay Earnhart,
Ventura, Calif., 6-4, 6-4.
Fourth-seeded John Douglas.
Santa Monica, Calif., defeated Al-
len Fox, U.S. intercollegiate
champion from UCLA, -6-4, 7-5
after Fox was one point from win-
ning the second set.
The fifth-seeded American,
Ron Holmberg, Brooklyn, N.Y.,
surged back from 1-3 in the sec-
onn set to defeat Larry Nagler,
North Hollywood, Calif., 4-6, 7-5,
6-0. Nagler held the U.S. inter-
collegiate title last year as a UCLA
student.

BALTIMORE UP) - Manager
Paul Richards of the Baltimore
Orioles yesterday emphatically
denied reports that he would quit
the team next year to take a
baseball job in his native Texas.
A report out of New York said
he would take over as general
manager of the new Houston club
when the Colts enter the expand-
ed National League next year.
Another report, published by
the Baltimore News-Post, said the
52-year-old Richards would be-
come manager, general manager,
or both of the Dallas-Fort Worth
team in the Class AAA American
Association.
"I'm not going to Dallas, Hous-
ton or anywhere else," Richards
said before last night's twi-night
doubleheader with the Boston Red
Sox. "The stories are baseless and
have no foundation of fact. I
have not been offered the kind of
job they describe.
"It's embarrassing to turn down
jobs that haven't been offered,"
Richards said, "but what else can
I do."
Richards reiterated a previous
statement thst he would not man-
age another club after he leaves
Baltimore, where his current con-
tract. has two years to run.

Referring to a general man-
ager's post, he said, "I do not want
a job that will confine me in the
winter time." He said such con-
finement was the "most onerous
part" of his dual position as
manager-general manager with
Baltimore a few seasons ago.
"It's nice to think you're in
demand," he said, "but frankly
I'm not awarP of it. I hope when
I'm out of a job someone will
offer me one."
"I can't run theseother cities
down," Richards added. "What if
someone in Texas offers me four
or five oil wells and $100,000 a
year?"
The New York report said
Richards would be the general
manager at Houston.

Malone Fails
In Speed Run
DAYTONA BEACH (RF)-- Art
Malone got the Mad Dog IV race
care above 170 miles an hour yes-
terday and went after a record
180 when a minor mechanical
failure killed his hopes for an-
other day.
"It handles beautifully with the
air foils," Malone said after tak-
ing a lap around the 2.5-mile high
banked Daytona International
Speedway at 170.564 m.p.h.
A few adjustments were made
in the suspension system to shift
a little more weight onto the
left front wheen. Then Malone
wvent back on the track in the
specially built car to try for the
elusive 180 and the $10,000 prize
posted for the first one to make
it, but a fuel pump failed him.

RENSSELAER (I)-The, College\
All Stars today displayed a blister-
ing air attack, mainly behind the
passing of Bill Kilmer of UCLA,
to tie the Chicago Bears 14-14 in
a full game football scrimmage.
It was the collegians climactic
tuneup before they take on the
National Football League cham-
pion Philadelphia Eagles in the
annual All Star Game in Soldier
Field Aug. 4 in Chicago.
The All Stars spotted the Bears
a 14-0 lead before quarterback
Kilmer got them rolling in the
second quarter. He completed eight
of 11 passes, including six in a
row, as the collegians went 80
yards in 11 plays. Kilmer's main
targets in the surge were Aaron
Thomas of Oregon State, Mike
Ditka of Pittsburgh, Pervin Atkins
of New Mexico State and Glyn
Gregory of Southern Methodist.
Atkins scored the touchdown ons
a 22 yard pass from Kilmer.
Atkins also scored the second
touchdown early in the fourthI
period on a four yard run. It

George Fleming of Washington
booted both extra points and also
was just wide of making a 62 yard
field goal.
The Bears met a stubborn de-
fense and were held to 77 yards
rushing. They made good on 15
of 28 passes for 103 yards. The
All Stars gained 156 in the air
with 18 completions in 30 at-
tempts. Bear fullback Rick Casares
netted 40 yards on eight carries
and caught three passes for 21
yards.
