Reds Fail To Regain First Place After 5-1 Loss!

McKinley Leads

By The Associated Press
ST. LOUIS-Carl Sawatski and
Stan Musial hit home runs giving
L!arry Jackson and the St. Louis
Cardinals a 5-1 victory over the
Cincinnati Reds last night.
The defeat, charged to starter
Ken Johnson, enabled the idle
Los Angeles Dodgers to extend
their first place margin over the
Reds to six percentage points.
It was Johnson's first loss in
three decisions.
In picking up his fifth straight
triumph, Jackson squared his sea-
son record at 8-8 and ran the Red-
birds' winning streak to five
Sawatski hit his homer, No. 7,
in the second inning to give the
Cards a. 1-0 lead. That was how
it stood until the sixth when Joe
Cunningham was hit by a pitched
ball and Bill White's attempted
sacrifice went for a hit when the
Reds failed to cover first base.
Musial's following three-run hom-
er was his 11th.
The Reds scored an unearned
run in the eighth when Jerry

sacrifice and an infield out.
The Cards added their last run,
also unearned, off reliefer Sher-
man Jones in the eighth. Cun-
ningham singled, went to third on
Don Blasingame's bobble and
scored on Ken Boyer's infield hit.

Yanks 4, Angels 1
NEW YORK-A surprise bunt
by slugger Roger Maris and a tie-
breaking home run by Yogi Berra
backed the six-hit pitching of Bud
Daley as the New York Yankees
came from behind for a 4-1 vic-
tory over the Los Angeles Angels.
It was the Yanks' fifth straight
success and produced a three-
game bulge-their largest lead of
the season-over idle Detroit in
the American League race. It also
marked the return to action of
Yankee manager Ralph- Houk,
who had been serving out a five-
day suspension for a run-in with
umpire Ed Hurley.
Berra's homer, a belt into the
lower right field seats on a 3-2
pitch, led off the sixth inning and
beat the Angels' top winner, Ken
McBride (9-8). It was Yogi's 14th
home run of the season and No.
332 for his career, breaking a tie
with Hall of Famer Hank Green-
berg for 14th place on the all-time
The Yankees had tied it 1-all
in the third when Bobby Richard-
son scored on Maris' two-out bunt
down the third base linei. Rich-
ardson had doubled and then
moved to third on an infield out.
New York's other two runs
scored in the eighth. Maris walk-
ed and came around when Mickey
Mantle's single got past center
fielder Ken Hunt for an error.
Mantle, who struck out twice,
once with the bases loaded, then
trotted in on a wild pitch.

BALTIMORE - Relief pitcher
Billy Hoeft squelched a budding
Kansas City rally in the ninth in-
ning to preserve a 5-4 victory for
the Baltimore Orioles over the
last-place Athletics.
Summoned to the mound with
two on and one out, Hoeft struck
out Norm Siebern and enduced
pinch hitter Ossie Virgil to hit into
a game-ending force play.
Trailing 5-1 after seven innings,
the Athletics scored three runs in
the eighth off Jack Fisher, the
second Oriole pitcher. A walk, a
bunt single by Jerry Lumpe and

a double by Wayne Causey scored Dave Philley hit into a force play the plate on John Callison's sac-

While being far from out, the
Wolverine varsity swimmers are
definitely down, and at the same
time the women are slowly climb-
ing up.
Why is this, a number of people
would like to know, including the
men's coach, Gus Stager. Of course
a number of things contribute to
the fall of a swimming power.
One thing is the changing tide
of swimmers from East to West,
with the Midwest sort of in the
middle. "Swimmers change in their
ideas of the best coach, location,
and school" says Stager, the 1960
Olympics coach.
Also, there is definitely the uni-



versity's academic record, which
has kept some of the more mus-
cular but less intelligent or lazier
tankers away from the Admissions,
Replacement Troubles
One of §tager's biggest problems
is replacing graduates such as
Frank Legacki (NCAA champion,
AAU champion, and All-Ameri-
can), Dave Gillanders (NCAA
champion, All - American, and
Olympic medalist), Ron Clark,
(NCAA champ, All - American),
and Bob Webster (Olympic cham-
Stager must at the same time
find the strength to beat Jim
Counsilman's Indiana team, which
has four of the five American
world recordholders, as well as a
team that was deep enough and
powerful enough last year to top
Michigan's NCAA champions in
the Big Ten meet, where special
twelve-place scoring depth is as
important as the top strength.
Counsilman's top speedsters are
Mike Troy, 200-meter butterfly,
Chet Jastremski, 100- and 200-
meter breaststroke; Tom Stock,

These swimmers, each of whom
will be favored in his stroke na-
tionally as well as in the Big Ten,
are trained five hours a day on
the formula of "Hurt, Pain, and
Agony." Troy is particularly known
for his large bedroom sign:
Stager might heed round-the-
year training also, as advocated
by Counsilman.
Definite Contender
Oddly enough, at the same time
that the varsity was losing its
conference title, the Ann Arbor
Swim Club, composed almost
wholly of Michigan coeds, was
establishing itself for the first time
as a definite contender for na-
tional honors in the Amateur Ath-
letic Union.
This weekend the AASC's Susan
Rogers and Sue Thrasher will be
in contention for top honors at
the NAAU championships, swim-
ming in breaststroke and butterfly
races, respectively.
Of course, the condition of wom-
en above men will not last long in
the face of Stager's desire for
team and individual champion-
ships, but it is still an oddity that
it should happen.

Stays Pat
Jimmy Piersall of Cleveland re-
mained in third place in the bat-
ting competition with a .342 mark
followed by Mantle with .332 and
Gentile with .330. Gentile picked
up eight points with eight safeties
in 17 trips.
In the National League, Pitts-
burgh's Roberto Clemente has
opened a 31-point lead over Frank
Robinson of Cincinnati. Clemente
gained 11 points to .371 with 14
hits in 27 at bats, including a
5-for-6 performance last Thurs-
day. Robinson remained at .340
with nine hits in 26 attempts.'
Wally Moon moved up one place
to third on an 11-point increase
to .338. The Los Angeles Dodgers'
outfielder had 10 hits in 21 tries
last week. Don Hoak of Pittsburgh
dropped one notch to fourth. He
fell three points to .333.
Vada Pinson of Cincinnati ad-
vanced from 10th to fifth as a re-
sult of a 12 point gain that brought
his average to .330. Pinson col-
lected 15 hits in 30 times at bat.
Robinson, the Reds' big gun,
continues to lead in homers with
33 and runs batted in, 98. He had
one homer and drove in five runs
in last week's action.

DETROIT UP)-If physical re-
semblance means anything, the
Detroit Tigers can expect real
dividends from the estimated $50,-
000 they shelled out yesterday to
18-year-old Willie Horton.
With .a neck like a tree trunk
and a spectacular set of muscles,
the newest Tiger acquisition looks
enough like Roy Campanella to
be his twin.
"And that's not all," said one
of Willie's former coaches who
watched while Tiger officials pre-#
sented Horton, a Negro, to the
press. "He also hits like Campan-

Under the bonus contract, he'll

his legal guardian, attorney Da-
