MILWAUKEE (P)-The pennant
chasing Milwaukee Braves hauled
to within two percentage points of
a tie for first place last night by
beating the Chicago Cubs, 6-4,
as the leading Brooklyn Dodgers
were defeated, 2-1, by the'Pirates
at Pittsburgh.
The Braves threw the torrid Na-
tional League race into a virtual.
tie by jumping off to a three run
lead in the first two innings and
padding it in later innings as
starter Warren Spahn and relief-
er Gene Conley held off the Cubs.
Braves Outhit
The Braves were outhit 11 to 8
as they won the first game of a
brief home stand that will close
up the regular season in Milwau-
kee County Stadium. A crowd of
30,397 Milwaukee fans, who have
been denied a pennant since the
Braves came to town, turned out
in 55 degree weather.
Spahn, who went seven and a
third innings before running into
trouble, took his 19th victory of
the year against 10 defeats as he
shoots for his seventh 20-victory
season with the Braves. It was the
202nd victory of his brilliant major
league career and his third with-
out a loss this season over the
Cubs.
Pittsburgh 2, Brooklyn 1
PITTSBURGH (P)-A two-run
homer by Frank Thomas, his 23rd
of the season, jolted Brooklyn's
National League pennant drive
last night as the sixth place Pitts-
burgh Pirates defeated the Dodg-
ers, 2-1.
With eight games remaining,
the Dodgers now have an 88-58
record. The Braves are 89-59 with
six games left.
Thomas' Polpe Third Hit
Thomas' long poke in the sev-
enth inning, clearing the left field
wall, came with one out following
a leadoff double by Bill Virdon-
only the third hit allowed to that
point by righthander Sal Maglie.
Maglie, taking his fifth defeat

in 16 decisions, had won six in a
row and was 21-4 lifetime over the
Bucs.
Ron Kline rode in on the homer
for his 14th victory, against 16
defeats. The 24-year-old right-
hander, who hadn't beaten the
Dodgers in three previous deci-
sions this year, gave eight hits,
but stayed out of trouble except
for the seventh, when the Brooks
scored, and the eighth innings.
Gil Hodges' double, a pair of in-
field outs and Junior Gilliam's
single to deep short scored the
Brooklyn run in the top of the
seventh.
Kline in Trouble
In the eighth, Kline got in a
hole with two out when Randy
Jackson, playing third base for
the injured Jackie Robinson, walk-
ed and Sandy Amoros followed
with asingle. But Kline then put
a called third strike past pinch-
hitter Rube Walker on a 3-2 pitch.

BOSTON (R)--Marvelous Mickey
Mantle blasted his way into Amer-
ican League and New York Yan-
kee history last night with his
51st home run but couldn't stem
the tide of a 13-7 Boston Red Sox
triumph.
In the wild, zany contest Mickey
gained ground on Boston's Ted
Williams in the batting derby
while the Yanks bettered the mark
for most runners left on base with
20.
Mantle Ups Average
Mantle hiked his batting aver-
age to .353 to gain two percentage
points on Williams who advanced
to .356 -- still 24 at bats short of
the required 400 with seven games
remaining.
Mantle's 480 foot belt, which hit
inches from the top of the wall
behind Fenway Park's center-field
bleachers, gave the Yanks a league

mark of 183 homers for a single
season. New York held the pre-
vious high of 182 established in
1936.
Singles Twice
Mickey also singled twice, drew
a walk, scored three times, drove
in a pair of tallies and wasn't
stopped until reliefer George Susce
grabbed his high hopper and
threw him out in the seventh
inning. He flied to center in the
eighth.
Williams got two singles in four
trips including an arching fly to
Ann Arbor Wins
KALAMAZOO -- Ann Arbor
High School continued its per-
ennial winning ways here last
night with a 32-12 victory over
Kalamazoo Central.
The triumph marked the Pi-
oneers' 40th consecutive game
without defeat.

HOMER JOLTS BROOKLYN - Frank Thomas hit his 23rd
home run of the season as the Pittsburgh Pirates nosed out the
Brooklyn Dodgers, 2-1.

HITS 51st HOMER-Mickey Mantle got his fifty-first home run
last night in a losing cause against the Red Sox. The four
bagger traveled 480 feet.

LONDON (P)-Former Michigan
swimming star Jack Wardrop will
be a top British hope for a medal
at the Olympic games in Mel-
bourne in November.
Holder of three world records,
the 24-year-old Scot won a place
yesterday on the British team for
the third straight time-despite
some strong opposition to his se-
lection from some of his country-
men.
Opposed by Some
Many people in British swim-
ming circles argued that Ward-
rop should be left out because he
had not competed for England this
year or taken part in the national
championships. He had spent three
years on Michigan's tank squad.
After much deliberation, the.
selectors decided to ignore the
anti-Wardrop faction and enter
his name for the 400 meters free-
style and the 200 meters relay race.
He was considered vital to Brit-
ain's chances in those events.
Wardrop recently returned home
after four years as a student at
Michigan where he benefitted from

top-class coaching and competi-
tion. He was suspended from the
Wolverine squad last January after
a clash with Coach Gus Stager.
Holds Three Records
Wardrop is the world record
holder for 200 meters and 220
yards freestyle and the 400 metets
individual medley. Melbourne will.
be his third Olympics. He swam at
Wembley in 1948 and at Helsinki
in 1952 without winning any med-
als.
The former Wolverine joins 17-j
year-old Neil McKechnie, triple
British champion, in the relay and
the 400 meters. Ken Williams and
33-year-old London policeman Ron
Roberts complete the relay squad
--one that is capable of breaking
the Olympic record of 8:3 1.1.
Roberts, rated among. Britain's
best sprinters, is entered for the
100 meters. He won that event in
Moscow last November, but his
time of 0:58.1 seconds did not sug-
gest he was capable of winning an
Olympic medal.

CINCINNATI - Southpaw Joe
Nuxhall pitched a five-hitter last
night as the Cincinnati Redlegs
kept their slim pennant hopes
alive with a 9-1 clobbering of the
St. Louis Cardinals.
The win kept alive Cincinnati's
faded hopes for a National League
flag, 'putting them three games
back of the leading Brooklyn
Dodgers who lost to Pittsburgh's
Pirates, 2-1.

Reach Mizell Early
The Reds jumped on starter
Wilmer Mizell in the second in-
ning for three runs on Wally Post's
first homer, a hit batsman, a walk
and a triple by Nuxhall that
brought two runs across.
In the Redlegs' big inning-the
seventh-three Cardinal pitchers
were pounded for five hits and
six runs, three of them on Post's
second homer of the game. -

NEW YORK - The New York
Giants pounced on rookie right-
hander Dick Farrell and Ron Ne-
gray for 7 runs in the 5th inning
and defeated the Phillies, 7-3, last
night.
Southpaw Johnny Antonelli
went all the way for the Giants to
pick up his 18th victory against
13 defeats, holding the Phillies to
seven hits while fanning seven and
walking three.
Farrell Driven From Box {
In the big fifth explosion the
Giants hammered out six hits
while also benefitting from a walk
and a hti batsman. Farrell mak-
ing his first major league start,
was driven from the box in this
inning and Negray also took a
lathering.
There was one home run in the
game, by rookie outfielder Bob
Bowman of the Phillies.
Willie Mays of the Giants stole
his 37th and 38th bases of the sea-
son, the highest number of thefts
by a National Leaguer since Kiki
Cuyler's 43 in 1929.

BALTIMOREr-Sparked by Gus
Triandos, the Baltimore Orioles
downed the Washington Senators
last night, 7-3, at Memorial Sta-
dium.
Triandos walloped two. homers,
his 20th and 21st of the season, to
remove himself from the "goat"
status into which he got himself
by a boner in the second. The
Baltimore catcher dropped the
ball as Lyle Luttrell stole home for
Washington's first run.-
Triandos hit one of his homers
into the left field stands in the
second with none on. In the
fourth, he hit the second into the
same stands and scored behind
Triandos also singled and scored
Tito Francona, who had singled.
in the eighth.

White Sox, 3-2 in 10innings, aft-
er losing the opener of a twi-light
night doubleheader, 4-2, last
night.
Jim Pisoni singled and tallied
on Joe DeMaestri's triple in the
10th inning of the final. It gave
Art Ditmar his 12th victory in a
duel with Dick Donovan, who had
balked in the first inning to give
the A's .one of a pair of runs.
Sherm Lollar collected three
singles and a triple as the Comis-
keys outhit the A's, 11-7. He'drove

er.

DETROIT () - Miguel Berrios
of Puerto Rico hammered out a
split decision over Ike Chestnut
of New York last night in a hard-
fought nationally televised feath-
Browns Win
CHICAGO (A) - The cham-
pion Cleveland Browns turned
a pair of fumbles into touch-
downs and rolled to their first
National Football League ex-
hibition victory by beating the
previously undefeated Chicago
Bears 24-14 Friday night be-
fore a Soldier Field crowd of
67,543,
erweight 10-rounder at Olympia
Stadium here.
Berrios weighed 127; Chestnut,
1283/.
After getting off to a slow start,
the 5'2" Berrios unleashed heavy

hooks in the later stages of the
fight to gain the nod over his tall-
er oponent.
Under the "must five" scoring
system now being tested by the
Michigan Boxing Commission,
Judge Jack Asper gave the fight
to Berrios 46-43. Judge Al Good-
man had it 48-40 for Berrios,
while. Referee John Weber voted
45 for Chestnut to 44 for Berrios.
The Associated Press saw it 49-39
for Berrios.
The fast and strong Berrios is
currently sixth among the 126-
pounders. The more orthodox
Chestnut, a New Yorker, is pres-
ently ninth.
Both contenders have good rec-
ords this year. Berrios' best fight
was his decisive trouncing of
Flash Elorde last month at San
Francisco. Chestnut stopped Car-
melo Costa in July for his most
impressive victory to date.
