Maris Belts Four More Home Runs



By The Associated Press
NEW YORK - Roger Maris
smashed four homers-two in each
game - to take over the major
league lead with 40 and lead the
New York Yankees to a double
sweep over the Chicago White Sox,
5-1 and 12-0 last night.
The two victories cooled off the
White Sox who had won six
straight and moved the Yanks in-
to first place by four percentage
points over the Detroit Tigers. The

Tigers, even with the Yanks in
the won-lost column, met the An-
gels in Los Angeles.
A crowd of 46,240 saw the left-
handed hitting Maris out-homer
teammate Mickey Mantle 2-1 in
the first game to tie the switch-
hitter for the lead at 38 each.
Then Maris went in front by
clouting two more to put him 24
games in front of Babe Ruth's
record pace. The late Bambino
belted his 40th in his 120th game
when he slammed 60 in 1927. The
Yanks have played 96 so far in-
cluding a tie game. The 40th also
marked a personal high for Roger,
who slammed 39 last year.
The 6-foot, 197-pound right-
fielder drove in eight runs-three
in the first game and five in the
second-to move in front in the
majors' RBI department with 96.
With this kind of support,
Whitey Ford (18-2) was able to
breeze to his 12th straight vic-
tory and Bill Stafford (9-4) to his
third in a row over the White
Sox. Ford left for a pinch-hitter
in the seventh with a 4-1 lead
because of a headache and the
intense heat. Luis Arroyo mopped
up as usual.
Dodgers 7, Phillies 2
homer by Gil Hodges and a two-
run triple by John Roseboro pow-
ered the pennant-minded Los An-
geles Dodgers to a 7-2 victory
over the Philadelphia Phillies.
At the same time southpaw San-
dy Koufax posted his 13th tri-
umph in 19 decisions, allowing
only six hits. The Phillies com-
bined three of them for their only

runs in the second inning. Koufax
struck out 10, including Tony
Gonzalez on four occasions.
Hodges unloaded his home run
into the upper deck in left field
off lefthander Don Ferrarese after
Tommy Davis and Frank Howard
singled in the first inning. It was
the first baseman's fifth circuit
Roseboro cemented the victory'
for the Dodgers in the fourth. He
poled a triple to deep center, scor-
ing Daryl Spencer and Charlie
Neal. Roseboro came in on a'
subsequent triple by Maury Wills,
who also had a double and sin-

Braves 2, Reds 0
MILWAUKEE - Milwaukee
righthander Lew Burdette fash-
ioned a brilliant two-hitter for his
12th victory as the Braves blank-
ed Cincinnati 2-0 and handed the
league leading Reds a damaging
The loss cut the Reds' National
League lead to one game over Los
Angeles as the Dodgers defeated'
Philadelphia 7-2. The fourth-place
Braves moved to within 8/2 games
of first.
Burdette, displaying his noted'
pinpoint control, surrendered only
an infield hit to Chico Cardenas
in the fourth and a slice double
to left by Don Blasingame in the'
seventh while posting his third
shutout of the campaign. The vet-
eran Milwaukee ace now has won 8
of 9 decisions since June 15.
Burdette stopped the hitting
streak of Cincinnati outfielder
Frank Robinson at 19 games. Rob-
inson struck out and grounded to
short and drew the only walk giv-
en by Burdette.
* * *
Orioles 5, Red Sox 1
BALTIMORE - Steve Barber,
22-year-old southpaw of the Bal-
timore Orioles, pitched no-hit ball
for 6/3 innings on the way to a
5-1 victory over the Boston Red'
Jackie Jensen's soft liner to right

field with one out in the seventh
inning was the first Boston hit off
the youngster who never had a
winning minor league season be-
fore jumping from Class D to the
American League last year.
In the eighth, consecutive sin-
gles by Jim Pagliaroni, Frank Mal-
zone and Don Buddin loaded the
bases for Boston, and Pagliaroni
scored as pinchhitter Pumpsie
Green grounded into a force play.
As if incensed after Jensen
ruined his no-hit bid, Barber led
off the Oriole half of the seventh
by golfing a home run just inside
the right field foul pole at the
309-foot mark. It was Barber's
second homer of the season.
Ron Hansen also hit a homer,
his ninth, off Boston loser Ike De-
lock in the second inning. The 400-
foot drive to left scored Jim Gen-
tile, who had walked.
* * *
Senators 2, Twins 1
Dick Donovan of the Washington
Senators won his fourth straight
game as he out-dueled Jack Kra-
lick and the Minnesota Twins 2-1.
The big righthander spaced five
hits in capturing his seventh sea-
son victory in 15 decisions. Dur-
ing his winning span, Donovan has
given up only three earned runs
in pitching the full nine innings
each time.
Minnesota's only run came in
the fourth inning when Donovan
gave up his first free pass in 36
innings, walking Lenny Green.
Green scored when Bob Allison
knocked a poy fly double into left;
field with two out.
Donovan triggered a two-run,
Washington third inning, driving
his first home run of the season,
into the right centerfield bleach-
Marty Keough and Bob Johnson
followed with singles, Keough1
scoring on an infield out.1

BRAVE BOMBERS - One good reason for the late drive of the. Milwaukee Braves has been the
hitting of these four sluggers. They are, from left, Joe Adcock, Hank Aaron, Ed Mathews, and Frank
Thomas. Besides setting a major league record earlier in the season by hitting consecutive home
runs, the quartet has paced the Braves into the first division, only one game behind third place San

PGA Event
Set To Open
By The Associated Press
CHICAGO-"This is not a one-
man or a two-man tournament,"
Jay Hebert, the forgotten defend-
ing champion in the PGA golf
championship, said yesterday.
"Twenty or thirty guys could win
it-including me."
The lean-grey-eyed Cajun from
Lafayette, La., let it be known
that he was least of all impressed
by the heavy Arnold Palmer-Gary
Player sentiment sweeping Olym-
pia Fields for the 43rd annual
professional event, starting tomor-
"This is not the kind of course
that favors the big hitter, like
Palmer or Sam Snead," Hebert
said. "It's a course that takes
position golf. I like that. But it
opens up the field.
Anybody Could Win
"I don't think we've had a more
wide open major tournament since
the open at Winged Foot in 1959.
Nobody's going to overpower this
layout. Almost any of the top play-
ers could win it, dnd it might be
one of the older players, or even
a club pro."
Hebert, one of two golfing
brothers who has wonthis covetA
prize, is high on his own chanc~
"I haven't felt better in two
years. I took a couple of weeks off
before the tournament last week
at Milwaukee. I ,am strong and
eager. If I can drop my putts, I
think I have as good a chance as
any of them."
Overwhelming Favorites
Palmer, the big-shouldered slug-
ger from Latrobe, Pa. who is just
back from a triumph in the British
Open, and Gary Player, the Mas-
ters champion and leading money
winner from South Africa, are the
overwhelming favorites.
"I'm not driving as well as I did
at Birkdale," said Palmer. "B'ut
I'm not unhappy about my game.
If I can straighten them out off
the tee, I won't worry. This is the
one I want to win."
Player, who has been in a put-
ting slump since this victory at
Augusta, believes he has conquered
his inconsistency on the greens.
"I have much more confidence,"
he said.
Sam Snead, a three-time win-
ner, was in a grouchy mood after
touring the famed North Course,
which plays a par 35-35-70 for
its 6,722 yards.
"These golf architects make me
sick," he complained. "They can't
play golf, so they try to rig the
courses so nobody else can play
golf either. This course is a sight.
"There are traps out in the
middle of some fairways just
where you should hit the ball. And
the rough is tougher close to the
fairway than it is farther out. So
the more you miss a shot the bet-
ter off you are.
"But it doesn't make much dif-
ference to me. I'm terrible. I'm
tired and I haven't hit a good iron
for weeks."

NEW YORK (P)-The American
team competing in the 1962 world
amateur Ice Hockey champion-
ships will be bolstered for the first
time by players from the Eastern
and International Leagues.
Tom Lockhart, president of the
Amateur Hockey Association of the
United States, said yesterday that
we're putting on the show and we
must finish in the money. This is
one way of doing it.
"These leagues do not come
under the heading of professional

$125 to $150 a week," Lockhart
"After all, the Canadians have

tus. Some of them such as Jackie

Won by Canada
The world tournament will be
held in Colorado Springs, Colo.
March 8-18. Last year's competi-
tion in Geneva, Switzerland was
won by Canada with Czechoslo-
vakia placing second, Russia third
and the United States sixth.
"The addition of the Eastern
and International League players
should be enough to put us on a
par with the Canadians, Czechs
and Russians," said Lockhart, who
is also President of the Eastern
League. "The players from these
leagues will have to be citizens of

this country. There are enough
such men to make up our entire
team of 17 players. But we plan
to have eight or nine from our
usual sources."
Up to now, the U.S. National'
team has been made up of former
collegians and amateur players,
from areas in Minnesota, Michi-
gan, Wisconsin, Colorado and the
New England states.
"Two players who were in the
Eastern League last , season al-
ready have told me they would
like to play in Colorado Springs,"
Lockhart disclosed. "They are
Dick Roberge and Don Hall. Both
played for Johnstown (Pa.) and,
were among the leading scorers."
Two Pros
Under International regulations,
Lockhart explained, each nation is
permitted two professionals in the
world ,amateur tourney. This does
not apply, however, to the Olympic
games during which the ice hockey
championships are also held. In
the Olympics only bona-fide
amateurs are eligible.
The American team won the
event in the last Olympics in
Squaw Valley, Calif. in 1960 be-
hind the brilliant goaltending of
Jack McCartan, who later turned
pro with the New York Rangers
of the NHL.
"We could even use two players
from the National League provid-
ing they were American citizens,"
said Lockhart. "But we do not
plan to do it at this time."

CINCINNATI - A new battery
- catcher Ed Bailey of San Fran-
cisco and pitcher Don Drysdale of
Los Angeles - and infielder Ernie
Banks of Chicago were named
yesterday to the National League
All-Star squad for the second game
with American Leaguers at Bos-
ton next Monday.
Manager Danny Murtaugh of
Pittsburgh, who is piloting the
National League All-Stars, made
the selections.
Under game rules, Murtaugh
could add three players to the
original 25-player roster for the
second game and make changes
among the pitchers. The National
Leaguers won the first game at
San Francisco July 11 by a 5-4
Murtaugh made no other'
changes in the National League
player roster. The starting lineup
for the game, aside from the pit-
cher, will be the same as in the
first game.
Righthander Drysdale, a contro-
versial figure who recently was
fined $100 and suspended for five
days for throwing too close to a
batter, is up among the league
leaders in strikeouts. His record
is 7-6 and he has a 3.88 earned

outfield for a time, has compiled
a .286 batting mark with 13 hom-
ers and 39 runs batted in.
NEW YORK - Right-hander
Bob Turley of the New York
Yankees underwent a complete
physical examination yesterday
and there is a strong possibility
he will be placed on the disabled
list either for 30 days or the rest
of the season.
Turley has been suffering from
shoulder and arm trouble and has
pitched only one inning since July
4. He has completed only one game
in 12 starts and has an earned
run average of 5.70.
Yankee manager Ralph Houk
said the doctor's report was not
yet complete but that "it doesn't
look good."
Turley admitted on June 2 he
had been pitching with a sore arm
after he had been kayoed five
straight times. Re rested for two
weeks and then tried again on
June 147.Hemade four brief and
ineffective appearances June 17
through July 4. His record is 3-5.
