Washington Drops Debut;
Houston Scuttles Cincinnati

Chant of Play Ball' Sounds over Nation

WASHINGTON (P)-Ken Mc-
Bride and Julio Navarro took over
the pitching duties from President
Lyndon B. Johnson yesterday and
tossed the Los Angeles Angels to
a one hit 4-0 victory over Wash-
ington to open the 1964 American
League baseball season.
Although threatening clouds
hung over D.C. Stadium through-
out the afternoon, the pitching
of McBride and Navarro and Joe
Adcock's three hits did more to
dampen Johnson's presidential
pitching debut than the occasion-
al raindrops that fell.
Washington starter Clande Os-
teen managed the only Washing-
ton hit, a long fly ball that
bounced off the center field fence
in the third inning and was good
for a double.
For Washington fans, most of
the interested centered around the
presidential box, where Johnson
sat surrounded by congressional
leaders and members of the
White house.

CINCINNATI (P)-Ken John-
son, who helped pitch Cincinnati
to the 1961 National League pen-
nant, held the Reds to five hits
yesterday and with ninth inning
help hurled the Houston Colts to
a season-opening. 6-3 victory
When Johnson faltered in the
ninth with two out and three runs
in, Hal Woodeshick replaced him.
A two-run homer by Bob Skinner
was the end for Johnson.
Two walks, a wild pitch, an
error by Chico Ruiz and a two-
run single by veteran Nellie Fox
gave the Colts three runs in the
fifth.
Houston got three more in the
sixth on a single by Rusty Staub
and Jim Wynn's home run which
were followed by singles by Bob
AspJromonte and John Bateman,
an error and Eddie Kasko's force
for another tally.
A crowd of 28,110 sat in under
cloudy skies and few brief sprin-
kles of rain for the opener.

By The Associated Press
LOS ANGELES - The world
champion Los Angeles Dodgers
face the St. Louis Cardinals in
tonight's National League opener
here in much the same situation
as they did a year ago.
"We still need power hitting,"
said Dodgers Manager Walter Al-
ston, who readily agreed he does
have another great pitching po-
tential aboard for the coming
campaign and the club overall is
in better physical candition than
it was setting out in 1963.
Superb Sandy Koufax, 25-5 and
winner of practically every known
award in the books in 1963, goes
against Bob Gilson, 18-9. or Er-
nie Broglio, 18-8, for the Cardi-
nals.
The Dodgers won 12 out of 18
games with St. Louis in 1963, in-
cluding their triumph in the cru-
cial series at St. Louis in Sep-
tember when Johnny Keane's Red-
birds were breathing hard on the
Dodgers' necks.

Giants vs. Braves
SAN FRANCISCO--One of base-
ball's natural pitching duels shapes
up for the San Francisco-Milwau-
kee opener today at Candlestick
Park when right-hander Juan
Marichal of the Giants faces'
amazing southpaw Warren Spahn,
of the Braves.I
At thei season's close, the 26-
year-old Marichal had posted a
25-8 record with a 2.41 earned-
run-average. Spahn, 43 on April
23, was 23-8 for 1963 with a 2.60
ERA.
San Francisco rates the top
threat to Los Angeles in the pre-
season polls with Milwaukee's
chances apparently depending on
the group of youngsters manager
Bobby Bragan has under his wing,
plus Felipe Alou who came in a
trade.
Alou gives the Braves a center
fielder and provides additional
batting punch to go with Hank
Aaron and Lee Maye.
Probable line-ups:

med eight homers in the exhibi-
tion games.

Pirates vs. Cubs
PITTSBURGH-Southpaw Bob
Veale, used chiefly in the bull-
pen last year, gets the starting
assignment today for the Pitts-
burgh Pirates in the season's
opener against Chicago.
The 28-year-old southpaw Veale
had a 5-2 mark last year, pitch-
ing in relief exclusively from April
to the end of August before mak-
ing the switch.
Larry Jackson, a 32-year-old
right-hander who donned a Cubs'
uniform last year after eight years
with the St. Louis Cardinals, will
pitch for Chicago. He had a 14-
18 mark last year.
With the exception of Willie
Stargell in left field, the Pirates
will open the same faces as in
1963. Cub newcomers are Jim
Stewartat second and Billy Cow-
an in center.
Probable line-ups:

Tigers vs. Athletics
DETROIT --(Phil Regan, De-
troit's winningest pitcher last sea-
son, will get his first opening day
assignment today when the Ti-
gers play host to the Kansas
City Athletics.
Regan, 15-9 last year, will be
opposed by Orlando Pena, 12-20.
The game will have more than
the usual opening day interest be-
cause Rocky Colavito will be play-
ing his first game for the Ath-
letics after a four-year stint with
the Tigers.
Besides Lumpe the Tigers will
also have a new player in center
field in Don Demeter, acquired in
another trade with Philadelphia.
Probable line-ups:

PHILADELPHIA-The Philadel-

New York Mets, who are not
given much chance of moving out
of the National League cellar.
Dennis Bennett, a 6-4 lefthand-
er who had a 9-5 record despite
missing nearly half the 1963 sea-
son because. of an ankle break,
will be on the mound against New

the mound today when the New

ball season at Yankee Stadium in
defense of their American League
crown.
The Boston Red Sox, who fin-

will oppose Ford.

Indians vs. Twins
CLEVELAND - The Minnesota
Twins, top home run club in the
American League last year, and
the Cleveland Indians, who have
a new slugger in outfielder Leon
Wagner, open their baseball season
here today.
Jim Grant, 13-14 last season, is
Cleveland's choice to hurl, as he
was for last year's opener. Camilo
Pascual, 21-9, is to pitch for the
Twins.
Third last year, the Twins are
tagged by the predictors to
come in second or third this cam-
paign. Cleveland, tied for fifth
in 1963, has been relegated to
sixth choice in most forecasts.

P.S. BY THE WAY, we notice that some of the
other shops around town are offering the Greene's
Handi-Hamper idea. But they can't offer the on-
the-premise refrigerated storage vault of Greene's
exclusive microclean process. It's a plus to you at
the same price.
