NO BANDS, NO CROWDS:
Scrimmage: Football's Grim Necessity
A football scrimmage is one of sportingdom's most teasing and
tempting affairs.
Not real football, it often comes so close that you open your
mouth to cheer only to find a yawn come lumbering out.
Scrimmages have kick-offs, passes, fumbles; and to make just
like the real thing, it even has injuries. But scrimmages don't have
bands, scoreboards, programs, or cheerleaders. Not even boy cheer-
leaders.
To the players, it smacks of the same fraudalent qualities. After
days of push-ups, chalk talks, and battling the blocking sleds, it's a
chance to throw a pass and see your receiver actually try to score.
But adrenalin doesn't flow when you're assigned to tackle your
roommate and that give-'em-your-all diving catch only earns a mark
in the end coach's notebook.
Nope, football scrimmages aren't ball games. But out of long
Swear'yscrimmages, mighty football games grow.

The Los Angeles Dodgers trim-
ned Pittsburgh's National League
lead to one-half game yesterday,
nipping Houston 1-0 on pinch hit-
ter Al Ferrara's run-scoring sin-
gle in the 10th inning while St.
Louis upended the Pirates 6-5 with
a four-run burst in the ninth.
Regan Right
Don Drysdale and winner Phil
Regan limited Houston to four
its as the Dodgers boosted their
record in one-run games to 24-5
and moved a full game ahead of
h i r d place San Francisco,
trounced by Chicago 12-3.
Maury Wills opened the 10th
with a single, moved around to
third on a sacrifice and ground
out and broke the scoreless dead-
ock when Ferrara, hitting for
Regan, came through with a single
to left. The victory was Regan's
13th against one loss.
Bucks Bow
Ed Spiezio's run-producing sin-
gle climaxed the Cardinals' win-
ning rally, which overcame a 5-2
Pittsburgh lead. Singles by Curt
Flood and Orlando Cepeda around
Tim McCarver's infield out deliver-

ninth.
Bill Mazeroski singled and
scored on Bob Bailey's triple in
the fourth, sending the Pirates
ahead 3-2, then hit a two-run
homer in the eighth.
Perry Sunk
Glenn Beckert rapped a double
and two singles, extending his hit-
ting streak to 20 games, and drove
in five runs as the Cubs pounded
20-game winner Gaylord Perry
and five Giant receivers for 17
hits. Dick Ellsworth, a 20-game
loser, gained his sixth victory
while Perry took his sixth loss.
Sammy Ellis and reliever Billy
McCool combined for a four-hit-
ter as the Cincinnati Reds edged
Philadelphia 2-1 last night.
Art Shamsky clipped loser Jim
Bunning for a lead-off homer-
his 19th-in the second inning and
the Reds added an unearned run
in the fourth.
Mets as Usual
Cline's run-scoring single in the
fifth inning capped a two-run
Atlanta rally that sent the Braves
to a 3-2 victory over the New
York Mets last night.

Four plays later Jeter got into
the act by grabbing another Uni-
tas pass at the Baltimore 46 and
racing untouched into the end
zone.
Unitas was missing from the
Colts' lineup last season when the
Packers and Colts met in the play-
off game.
But he seemed completely re-
covered from knee surgery as he
led the Colts to early game mast-
ery over the slight underdog Pack-
ers.
The Colts, who outgained the
Packers by 55, yards in the first
half, had driven 54 yards to the
Packer 19 early in the opening
period.
On a third and one situation,
Unitas was rushed attempting to
