Twins Halt Bengal Streak

3:57.6 MILE:
Burleson Confident
For World Mark

By The Associated Press
Jim Lemon's sinle to left field
in the 11th. inning drove home
Lennie Gareen with the winning
run as the Minnesota Twins
edged the Detroit Tigers 7-6 yes-
terday to break the Bengals four
game winning streak.
The victory went to Paul Giel,
the third Twins' pitcher, his first
in the American league.
Detroit scored five runs in the
first off starter Pete Ramos on
two home runs. Al Kaline hit his

third in three days with two on
and Norm Cash cracked his eighth
with one aboard.
Ramos then blanked the Ameri-
can League leaders on two hits
through the ninth.
In the ninth inning, a pinch
double by Dan Dobbek and a run-
scoring single by pinchhitter Reno
Bertoia tied the count at 5-5. Aft-
er Billy Bruton's homer put the
Tigers back in front in the tenth,
Hal Naragon came through with
the Twin's third pinch hit, plat-
ing Bob Allison to send the game
into the 11th.
On the West coast, the power-
hitting Cleveland Indians buried
the Los Angeles Angels 13-5 yes-
terday with 17 hits, including
home runs by John Romano,
Woody Held, Willie Kirkland, and
Bubba Phillips. Jim "Mudcat"
Grant claimed the win, his fourth
of the year against no defeats.
In Kansas City, Joe Nuxhall
pitched the A's to a 4-3 victory
over the Washington Senators, de-
spite round-trippers by Willie Tas-
by and Gene Green of the Nats.
The A's wrapped it up with three
runs in the fifth after Tasby's
clout had tied the score 1-1 in
the fourth. A hit batsman, a sac-
rifice, and three hits brought the
runs in. After the fifth the plate
remained untouched until two
were out in the ninth setting the
scene for Green's circuit clout.
Riding on a four run outburst
in the first inning, the Baltimore
Orioles slipped by the Chicago
White Sox 6-4. The Orioles com-
bined three6walks, two hits and
an error to force Chicago starter
Herb Score from the mound be-
fore he had retired a batter. Juan
Pizarro relieved Score, but en-
countered similar difficulties in
the second, giving up two more
runs before yielding the mound
to Lefty Frank Baumann.
Paced by home runs by Johnny
Blanchard and Tony Kubek the
New York Yankees defeated the
Boston Red Sox, 6-4, last night to
gain a game on the Tigers.

The Bronx Bombers chased
Billy Muffett from the mound
within two innings. They scored
three in the first, and two more
in the second to turn the trick.
The winning pitcher was Whitey
Ford. Ford is 6-1 on the season,
with his only loss coming in the
season opener.
In the National League, three
games were scheduled, but only
one survived the elements, the Los
Angeles-St. Louis game, which
saw the Cardinals come out on
the short end of a pitchers' duel,
1-0.
Sandy Koufax's three hit pitch-
ing and Tom Davis' seventh in-
ning homer proved the margin of
victory.
Davis' home run, his eighth of
the season, broke up a great duel
between Koufax and Bob Gibson,
who fanned eight, walked five and
gave up only five hits, but took
his first defeat. He has won two.
Koufax simply blew his fast one
past the dazzled Red-Bird batters.
He struck out eight men-only one
after the fifth inning. But he
again showed his control is much
better than the Koufax of old-
a strikeout king, but never a con-
sistent winner. He walked only
three.
It was Koufax's first victory
against the Cards since August,
1959.

EUGENE, Ore. OP)-Dyrol Burle-
son, the University of Oregon
junior who snatched back the
American mile record Wednesday
night, believes he can take the
world record as well.
Burleson, who ran the mile in
3:57.6 minutes, also believes the
chance at the world mark may
come June 24, when he meets Jim
Beatty of California and North
Carolina in the National AAU
Meet.
Herb Elliott of Australia holds
the world record of 3:54.5.
Burleson, 20, achieved his 3:57.6
last night with a 59-second final
lap.
"I think I could have run 56
on the final lap if I had had some
one to hang onto," Burleson said,
meaning he needed a competitor
to duel with on the final lap.
Beatty is a great competitor. He
has such a strong finishing sprint
that he has defeated Burleson in
their three meetings so far. Beat-
ty also had the best previous
American time of 3:58, taking over
last year a month after Burleson
had achieved the then-record
3:58.6.
The Oregon student said he will

be ready for Beatty at the AAU
meet.
"I'm pointing toward that," he
said, adding that he feels he is in
the best mental and physical con-
dition he ever has been.
Gibbs Signs
With Yanks
NEW YORK (?)-Jake Gibbs,
Mississippi's All-American base-
ball and football player, signed a
New York Yankee baseball con-
tract yesterday for a whopping
bonus, admittedly "over $100,000."
He was assigned to the Yankees'
Richmond Club of the Interna-
tional League.
Gibbs, a third baseman, had
received offers from several ma-
jor league clubs and turned down
an $80,000 bid by the San Fran-
cisco Giants.

In Big Ten
Bill Freehan won the Big Ten
batting crown with a booming .585
average according to final con-
ference records.
The 'M' catcher also topped the
field in hits and runs-batted-in
with 24 and 18 respectively. The
home run crown belongs to Min-
nesota's Dave Fritz. He also
ranked third in batting.
The team averages saw Michi-
gan second with a .268 average,
well behind Indiana's .322. Close
behind the Wolverines were Min-
nesota (.264) and Michigan State
(.256). Ohio State holds fifth place
with a .253 mark, followed by Il-
linois (.245), Purdue (.236), North-
western (.234), Wisconsin (.209),
