Tigers Regain Top Spot; Dodgers Beat Reds


Colavito Connects for Two Home Runs
As Detroit Trounces Baltimore, 15-8

Four L.A. Homers Spark 10-1 Victory;
Koufax Wins 12th with Seven-Hitter



By The Associated Press
DETROIT-The Detroit Tigers
gave Baltimore an .eight-run
bombing in the seventh inning
yesterday and went on to plaster
the Orioles 15-8 and reclaim first
place in the American League.
The Tigers' biggest inning of
the campaign pushed them one
percentage point ahead of the idle
New York Yankees.
The two teams clubbed out 29
hits-the Orioles outhitting the
Tigers 15-14 and used eight
pitchers. The Orioles, who defeat-

ed the Tigers the first two games
of the series, twice had the lead
but starting pitcher Steve Barber
could not hold it.
Rocky Colavito drove in five of
the Detroit runs with his 26th and
27th home runs.
The contest nearly wound up in
a fight between Baltimore man-
ager Paul Richards and Detroit
pitcher Hank Aguirre. Aguirre
yielded home runs to Jim Gentile
and Hank Foiles, the first two
batters in the ninth inning. Rich-
ards -thought Aguirre pitched too

Court Rules NFL
TV Contract Illegal

PHILADELPHIA (;'-A federal
judge yesterday invalidated the
National Football League's tele-
vision contract for 1961-62.
Judge Allan K. Grim, of United
States District Court, ruled that
the $9,300,000 package deal for
two years between the NFL and
the Columbia Broadcasting Sys-
tem violated a decision he hand-
ed down Dec. 12, 1953, and there-
fore in violation of the anti-trust
"I am obliged to construe the
final judgment (of the court) as
prohibiting execution and per-
formance of the contract dated
April 28, 1961," the ruling said.
The Department of Justice
questioned the legality of the new
NFL-CBS deal, concluded by
league commissioner Pete Rozelle
and giving CBS the right to tele-
cast all league games through the
next two seasons.
It was in response to this op-
position that Grim gave his rul-
Under the terms of the new
contract, which the 14 member
clubs of the NFL authorized Ro-
zelle to negotiate and sign, all
clubs share in the annual $4,650,-
000 fee, after certain exemptions
and deductions.
In the past, the clubs made their
own deals for the telecasting of
their games. The new contracts
depart from that practice, the
judge noted, in that the member
clubs agreed that each will not
sell its television rights separate

and apart from the others, but
would sell all their pooled rights
in a package.
"By this agreement," the rul-
ing said, "the member clubs . .
h a v e eliminated competition
among themselves in the sale of
television rights to their games.
"Clearly, this restricts the in-
dividual clubs from determining
from which areas the telecasts of
their games may be made, since
defendants (the NFL) have by
their contract given to CBS the
power to determine which games
shall be telecast and where."
In New York, Rozelle made the
following statement:
"This decision will have far
reaching effect on televised sports
events. The National Football
League contract with CBS-TV is
the same type that has been em-
ployed by other sports leagues and
heretofore has gone unchallenged.
"I am keenly disappointed with
this decision, and we are consult-
ing our attorneys as to a possible
future course of action.
"The NFL entered into this con-
tract in order to insure the con-
tinuation of its policy of televis-
ing all road games of a league
team to its home area. This unique
plan has played a major part in
the development of professional
football and has been widely ac-
claimed by sports fans throughout
the country.
"Furthermore, many fans will
not be able to watch their favorite
team's road games on television."

close to Ron Hansen, the next
batter, and began a shouting duel
with Aguirre.
They yelled at each other a cou-
ple of times before Richards rush-
ed up the dugout steps and got
out toward the mound. Aguirre
dashed off the mound towards
Richards. But before they met,
players from both benches inter-
vened and confined it to a battle
of words. Neither Richards nor
Aguirre was thrown out of the
Hal Woodeshick, who relieved
starter Don Mossi in the fourth
inning and pitched until he ran
into trouble in the seventh, was
the winner. Barber took the loss.
Gentile got Barber in front in
the first inning with a three-run
home run that sailed into the up-
per stands in centerfield above the
415-foot mark. Gentile, who hit
four home runs in the three-
game series and has hit eight in
his last seven games, has 26 hom-
ers for the year and eight of them
have come against Detroit pitch-

homers by Jim Piersall and Tito
Francona paced the Cleveland In-
dians to a 12-11 victory over Bos-
Piersall touched off an eighth
inning rally with a three-run
homer into the left field seats at
the 435-foot mark, his third of the
year. Francona then walloped the
game-winning home run, his ninth
of the year.
In the wild scoring slugfest, the
Tribe saw the Red Sox whittle
away an 8-2 lead and go ahead 10-
8 in the seventh on a five-run
Boston got two runs in the sec-
ond on solo homers by Carl Yas-
trzemski, his sixth, and Vic Wertz,
his tenth. The Red Sox exploded
for three more runs in the sixth
to knock out starter Gary Bell,
who had struck out nine.
The fifth Cleveland pitcher,
Bobby Locke (3-0), who came in
with the tribe ahead, 12-11, in the
eighth, was declared the winner
for holding the lead. Billy Muf-
fett (2-10) ,third of four Boston
hurlers, was the loser.
Piersall had been out of the
lineup since he was injured Sat-
urday while making a catch
against the center field fence.
The Indians took the last three
games of the four-game series.

By The Associated Press
CINCINNATI-A blast of four
home runs plus the seven hit
pitching of Sandy Koufax brought
the Los Angeles Dodgers a lop-
sided 10-1 victory over Cincinnati
last night and moved them to
within only a game and half of the
National League-leading Reds.
It was the fifth straight defeat
for the slumping Reds.
It also was the first complete
pitching victory for Koufax, a
former University of Cincinnati
player, since June 20 although he
now has a 12-6 record.
Joey Jay, taken out after the
fifth inning, suffered only his sec-
ond defeat in his last 15 decisions.
He now is 13-5.
Last night, however, he was
blasted for home runs by Duke
Snider, Willie Davis, Wally Moon
and Norm Larker, all of them go-
ing over the center field wall at
almost the same spot.
Frank Robinson, driving in Cin-
cinnati's only run, hit in his 15th
straight game. He also had a
Koufax struck out seven and
walked only one.
The victory also gave the Dodg-
ers an 8-7 margin over the Reds
for the season.
The Dodgers cut loose with their
heavy guns against Jay in the
third, fourth and fith innings to
build up a huge 9-1 lead.
In the third they got some help
from the Reds, too. Maury Wills
and Moon each stole a base and
Jay handed gut a walk to John
Roseboro. Singles by Willis and
Moon and Snider's home run over
the center field wall helped pro-
vide the four runs.

Giants 10, Cards 6
ST. LOUIS-The San Francisco
Giants blew a 6-0 lead, then ex-
ploded for a four-run eighth inn-
ing, capped by Willie Mays' two-
run homer, for a 10-6 victory
which ended a five-game St. Louis
Cardinal winning streak.
Two were out when the Giants
struck against Lindy McDaniel.
Harvey Kuenn's double to left
broke a 6-6 deadlock, scoring
pitcher Dick LeMay, who had
walked. Then Matty Alou rapped
a run-scoring single and Mays
slammed his 28th homer, a long

CLOUTERS-That's Detroit's Norm Cash, left, and Rocky Cola-
vito. Colavito clouted his 26th and 27th homers of the season yes-
terday to pull one ahead of fellow clouter Cash. Both are among
the leaders in home runs and RBI's and Cash's .354 batting aver-
age is second best in the American League.

blast which hit the scoreboard,
blacking out a light.
Young left-hander LeMay was
the winner, giving him 2-2 for
the year. McDaniel was the loser.
He's now 6-4 but his earned run
average has soared to 6:06, com-
pared with 2.09 last season.
The Redbirds tiedit 6-6 in the
sixth on Bill White's towering
three-run, two-out double off the
wall in right center.
Bob Miller, coming in after
starter Al Cicotte failed to retire
a man, allowed only one run and
four hits in a six-inning stint.
Cicotte was rapped for five runs
on five singles and a walk.
The Cards came back with three
runs in the first on Joe Cunning-
ham's two-run homer, his .fifth,
and Don Taussig's run-scoring
single. Sad Sam Jones stopped in
his bid for his eighth victory, gave
up 11 hits but stopped the Red-
birds until the sixth.

Pirates 4, Cubs 0
PITTSBURGH - Southpaw Joe
Gibbon of the Pittsburgh Pirates
tossed his first major league shut-
out, blanking the Chicago Cubs,
4-0, on four hits.
Gibbon fanned nine, walked
three and during one stretch faced
14 Chicago batters without yield-
ing a hit. It was the lanky left-
hander's eighth triumph in 12
Only Jerry Kindall, Al Heist and
George Altman were able to tag
Gibbon for safeties. Kindall
banged out a pair of doubles and
Heist and Altman each collected
The Pirates gave Gibbon all
the help he needed, banging out
11 hits and jumping on the Cub
starter, Jack Curtis, for single
tallies in the first and seventh
innings and a pair of runs in the
Back to back singles by Dick'
Stuart and Don Hoak, a sacrifice
bunt and Bill Mazeroski's two-run
bloop single gave the Pirates their
two tallies in the fourth.
Stuartdrove in Pittsburgh's first
run with a double in the first
inning with Joe Christopher on
second base.
Curtis, who was lifted for a
pinch hitter in the eighth, was
charged with the loss, his fourth
against six victories.

Braves 5, Phillies 1
year old Bob Hendley hurled the
first complete game of his Na-
tional League career as the Mil-
waukee Braves scored a 5-1 victory
over the Philadelphia Phillies.
Hendley, a lanky southpaw with
a whiplash delivery, scattered five
hits in posting his third triumph
in five decisions since being re-
called from Louisville of the Amer-
ican Association. He struck out
seven and walked six.
The Braves sewed up their fifth
win in their last six games with
seven hits, including Joe Adcock's
20th home run.
They scored three runs in the
first inning as Chris Short, an-
other young lefthander (23) faced
only four batters before being
replaced by John Buzhardt.
Short hit lead-off Mack Jones
and walked Felix Mantilla, filling
in for the ailing Frank Bolling.
Eddie Mathews singled in a run
and so did Hank Aaron.
Buzhart came on the scene and
Joe Adcock, who clouted his 20th
home run in the eighth inning,
greeted the righthander with an-
other single. Frank Thomas struck
out but Mathews registered with
the Braves third run as Joe Torre
grounded out.
Don Demeter kept the Phillies
from a whitewash. He hit his
eighth round-tripper of the cam-
paign in the first inning.

sengale, a former collegiate star
struggling to make ends meet on
the pro golf tour, and veteran
Fred Hawkins fired brilliant five-
under par 65's yesterday for a
share of the opening round lead
in the $30,000 Milwaukee Open.
Massengale and Hawkins came
blazing home under a blistering
afternoon sun to take a one stroke
lead over Canadian Open cham-
pion Jacky Cupit and Tommy
Veech,. a former Wisconsin Open
titlist playing his home course.
The visiting pros, plus amateurs
Jack Nicklaus, Sam Carmichael
and Archie Dadian, made a joke
of par 70 at the North Hills Coun-
try Club's 6,410-yard course. Par
was shattered by 29 golfers and
equalled by 22 others.
No Sponsor
Massengale, a 24-year-old for-
mer Southwest Conference cham-
pion for Texas Christian, shot his
best round since joining the golf
tour a year and a half ago with
a 34-31-65. A native of Jacks-
boro, Tex., he has won only $1,678
this year-and admits he does not
have a sponsor.
Hawkins, a 38-year-old pro from
El Paso, Tex., went out in five-
under 30, but managed only to
equal par 35 on the back nine.
Although he has not captured a
major tournament since 1956,
Hawkins usually earns plenty of
prize money. This year, however,
he has won only $4,500.

Cupit, a 23-year-old tour rookie
from Longview, Tex., who claims
he's tired from five straight tour-
naments, had 32-34 for his 66,
while Veech reversed those fig-
ures for his total.
Just another stroke back with
67's were Tommy Bolt, Paul Har-
ney, Stan Leonard and Ohio
State's Jack Nicklaus, former Na-
tional Amateur champion and re-
cent winner of the NCAA title.
Bracketed with 68's were Ken
Venturi, Milwaukee winner in 1957
and '60, masters champion Gary
Player, former major league base-
ball star Jerry Priddy, Jackie
Burke, Pete Fleming, Gay Brewer
Jr., Tom Nieporte and amateurs
Carmichael, of Martinsville, Ind.,
and Archie Dadian of Milwaukee.
There also was a jam at 69.
Deadlocked with one under par
rounds were former U.S. Open king
Bill Casper, Mason Rudolph, Bob
Harrison, Jerry Steelsmith, Rex
Baxter Jr., Bob Goalby, Don Fair-
field, Tony Lema, Don January, Al
Balding and Cary Middlecoff.
One pro who didn't have any-
thing nice to say about the course
after his initial round was Walker
Inman Jr., of Fort Walton, Fla.
Inman was even with par after 12
holes and then took a fat 11 on
the 485-yards, par 4 13th. He hit
three balls out of bounds, taking
a stroke and distance penalty each


Seattle Chosen for Site of
Johnson-Cotton Title Bout

British Cindermen Host U.S.

± '.

LONDON (R) -The injury-
riddled United States track team
takes on Great Britain today and
tomorrow and when it's over the
Americans will have competed in
three meets in the space of eight
days - which must be an endur-
ance record.
Last weekend, the United States'
men defeated Russia, 13 events to
0, and Wednesday wrapped up a
14-6 victory over West Germany.
They arrived here in a chartered
airlinet yesterday and immediately
went through a workout.
A women's meet will be held in
conjunction with the men's and
in this one Great Britain is ex-
pected to win.
Wilma Rudolph, the Tennessee
State U. Olympian who set a world
100 meter dash record of :11.2
seconds against West Germany,
but finished with a slight leg
sprain, has recovered.
Four members of themen's
team will be out of the meet be-
cause of injuries and another will
be operating at half strength.
Javelin thrower John Fromm of
Seattle has a pull in his side; hop,
step and jumper Bill Sharpe of
Philadelphia has a stiff leg; pole
vaulter John Uelses of the Quant-
ico Marines has a bad leg and
sprinter Paul Drayton of Villano-
va has a leg pull. All have been
In addition, Jerry Siebert of
Santa Clara, Calif., has both a
cold and a bad knee, but will start
in the half-mile.
'Ought To Win'
"So," said headcoach Jumbo
Jim Elliott, "I have had to do
some quick switching around.
There's no doubt that the replace-
ments will not help much in some
cases, but I still think we ought
to win the meet."
There is no decathlon, so Dave
Edstrom will handle the javelin
in place of Fromm. Ralph Boston,

"Boston has done over 50 feet
in the hop, step and jump the
few times he has tried it," said
Elliott, "and I understand Cush-
man competed in the event in
high school."
Paul Herman of Whitworth Col-
lege, Calif., the other decathlon
man, will substitute for Uelses in
the pole vault. Chuck Frazier will
run for Drayton in the 100 yard
dash and Earl Young of Abilene
Christian will replace him in the
None Missing
Actually none of the four should
be missed in the battle for first
places. But in the total score,
which will be on a 5-3-2-1 basis,
their potential points could go
to Britain.
The British team has high hopes
of winning three or four events.

Arthur Rowe, a 62-footer, could
beat out Gary Gubner and Jay
Silvester in the shot put. The
Britains also should be at least
co-favorites in the quarter mile
with Adrian Metcalfe and Robbie
Brightwell. The latter holds the
British record of :46.1 and Adolph
Plummer of New Mexico and Ulis
Williams of Compton, Calif., will
have to step to beat him.
The British also are hoping they
can win the 1,600 meter relay and
possibly the 220-yard dash. They
figure that if Manfred Germar
could beat Frank Budd in Stutt-
gart, Dave Jones has at least a
chance against him.
Peter Radford, a fine sprinter,
who has been bothered by illness
all year, will line up against Budd
and Frazier in the 100 yard dash.

NEW YORK (M)-Harold John-
son will defend his NBA light
heavyweight title against Eddie
Cotton of Seattle at Sick Stadium
in Seattle next month under a
deal approved by Pat Oliveri,
Johnson's manager, yesterday. The
tentative date for the fight is
Aug. 29.
Johnson, of Philadelphia, willj
get a guarantee of $20,000 and'
the privilege of 40 per cent of the
gate, whichever is greater.
Olivieri okayed the pact after
conferring with Dewey Fragetta,
New York boxing booking agent,
who represented Seattle promoter
George Chemeres.
The fight had been agreed to,

several days ago but a hitch arose
over Johnson's contract to give.
heavyweight contender Eddie Ma-
chen of Portland, Ore., a return
bout. Johnson outpointed Machen
at Atlantic City, N. J., July 1.
Under the terms' of that bout,
Johnson, if he won, was to give
Machen a return bout within 40
"We're willing to fight Machen,"
said Olivieri yesterday. "But I
haven't been able to reach him
by telephone.
"I haven't received contracts
for a Machen fight and so I de-
cided to go ahead with the title
