bottom of the 12th inning to drive
in the payoff run in the New York
Yankees' 4-3 triumph over the Bal-

had enabled the Yankees to fill
the bases with one out. His single
scored Norm Siebern from third
to break up the 4-hour and 19-
After Andy Carey had opened
the bottom of the 12th by ground-
ing out, Siebern got a life when
Bobby Adams made a low throw
on his routine grounder.
Yogi Berra then singled Siebern

HOYLAKE, England omP)-Mike,
Souchak qualified yesterday for
the British Open Golf Champion-
ship with a par-shattering 68 that
established him as one of the gen-
uine threats in the field.
Three other Americans -. Gene
Sarazen. Pete Burke and Frank
Stranahan-will join Souchak in
the reduced field of 96 when the
72-hole tournament proper gets
under way today.
Six Americans Fail
Six Americans failed to qualify.
Australia's Peter Thompson tied
with young Gary Player of South
Africa for qualifying honors.
Thompson shot a 69 over the rug-
ged. 6,950-yard Hoylake course.
Players, who had a 68 there Mon-
day, came up with a 72 at nearby
Wallasey, a shorter and easier
Souchak never was more in
need of a par-battering round.
After his loose 78 at Hoylake
Monday it looked as though the
powerful pro from Berwick, Pa.,
was going to have the mortgage
foreclosed on him.
But in his second qualifying
round his 35-33-68 over the par
36-35-71 Wallasey course gave
him a neat aggregate of 146.
England's Sid Scott came in
with a 67, and late in the after-
noon John Jacobs, another Eng-
lish pro, shot a 65. They both
woundrup with 142 totals, behind
a handful, including three-time

Stranahan Records 74
Stranahan, the former Toledo
amateur who twice finished sec-
ond in the British Open, recorded
a 74 at Wallasey.
Sarazen, who won this title in,
1932, shot a 75 at Wallasey for his
Burke, the American PGA sen-
ior champion from Cold Spring
Harbor, N.Y., got a 75 at the
tougher Hoylake course.
Nashua, who sports the silks of
the Leslie B. Combs II Syndicate,
will be the choice in the $75,000-
added Suburban Handicap at Bel-
mont Park on Long Island, N.Y.
Swaps, who beat Nashua in the
1955 Kentucky Derby and in turn
was beaten in their memorable
match last August at Washington
Park, has broken three world's
records this year.
The American Handicap is over
the mile-and-one-eighth distance,
