Mantle Hits
For Cycle
In 106 Win
By The Associated Press
NEW YORK - Mickey Mantle
walloped a tape-measure home
run, a three-run triple, a double
and a single last night as New
York's first-place Yankees moved
to a 512-game 'lead with a 10-6
victory over the second-place Chi-
cago White Sox, who made a fight
of it for seven innings on walks
and singles.
Mantle, whose triple capped a
five-run seventh inning that junk-
ed a 6-4 Chicago lead in the open-
er of this crucial three-game set,
became the first American
Leaguer to hit for the cycle since
June 4, 1952, when Larry Doby,
then with Cleveland, did it against
Boston.
The four-for-five night hoisted
Mantle back into the AL bat lead
with a .367 average. Boston's Ted
Williams slipped to second at .360
with one hit in three trips against
Kansas City.
The Yankees, blowing a 3-0 lead
set up on Harry Simpson's two-
run homer . in the first and
Mantle's 26th homer of the year,
estimated at 465 feet into the
deep right-center field bleachers
in the second, leveled the Sox with
only ,three hits in the big seventh.

Red Sax 1, Athletics 0
BOSTON-Billy Consolo singled
home the game's only run as Bos-
ton edged Kansas City 1-0 last
night behind the 10-hit pitching
of Frank hullivan.
Outhit, 10-8, the Red Sox need-
ed an error by the A's to help
them push across their unearned
tally.
Jackie Jensen singled with one
out in the fourth inning. Norm
Zauchin followed with what ap-
peared to be a cinch double-play
ball at Joe DeMaestri but the
shortstop threw into right field.
On the play Jensen moved to
third from where he scored on
Consolo's single.

Tigers 5, Orioles 2
BALTIMORE - Southpaw Billy
Hoeft stopped the Baltimore Ori-
oles on. seven hits last night as
the Detroit Tigers won, 5-2, and
moved two games ahead of Balti-
more in the battle for fifth place
in the American League.
Hoeft needed relief from Harry
Byrd for the final out as Balti-
more threatened in the ninth in-
ning.

and the latest figures show that
Aaron is the leader with seven.
Only RBI's Included
Credit for a game-winning blow
is given each player who puts his
club ahead to stay in the sixth,
seventh, eighth, ninth or an extra
inning. Only contributions for
which a player receives credit for
a run or runs-batted in count. A
steal of home does not count.
Close behind Aaron in the clutch
department are Don Hoak of Cin-
cinnati and Bill Skowron of the
New York Yankees. Hoak has pro-
duced six game-winners while
Skowron tops the American League
with five.
Aaron's key blows have come
against Philadelphia and Pitts-
burgh twice each and Brooklyn,
New York and Cincinnati once
each. Three of them were homers,
gne a triple, two were singles and
one was a sacrifice fly.

MILWAUKEE - The league-
leading Milwaukee Braves beat
Philadelphia, 1-0, last night as
Bobby Buhl hurled a two-hitter
and took his fourth triumh ina,
row over the Phillies, who now
have lost seven of their last eight
games.
Buhl allowed only one batter to
get as far as second base as the
Braves held their one-game edge
over Brooklyn.
Stan Lopata, getting one of the
four walks off Buhl, went to sec-
ond base in the fourth inning
when Harry Anderson beat out a
slow bounder with two men out.
Rip Repulski groundcd out to end
the threat.

Dodgers 1, Cardinals 0
ST. LOUIS-Brooklyn's Johnny
Podres shut out the St. Louis
Cardinals with a masterful five-
hitter last night, 1-0, besting Sam
"Toothpick" Jones, who gave the
Dodgers just three hits.
Podres never before had pitched
a complete game at St. Louis, In
seven previous tries spread over
four seasons. In reversing his luck,
for his eighth triumph against
three defeats, he allowed only one
runner to reach third.
The Dodgers scored their run in
the second inning, the one lss
than-neat frame Redbird loser
Jones experienced.
The Dodgers kept their mid-
summer pennant drive going. It
was their 11th victory in 13 games
and kept them a game behind first
place Milwaukee.

Cubs 4, Giants 0
CHICAGO-Rookie Dick Drott
mowed down the New York Giants
with 14 strikeouts yesterday and
yielded only four hits in pitching
the Chicago Cubs to a 4-0 triumph.
The strapping righthander, re-
cently turned 21, boosted his
strikeout mark for the season to
112 and his won-lost record to
9-8. It was his third shutout.
The former Cincinnati high
school star nearly matched his 15
strikeouts of last May 26 when
he hurled the Cubs to a 7-5 victory
over the Milwaukee Braves. The
15 stands as the major league
high so far this season, and was
only two shy of Dizzy Dean's Na-
tional League record set in 1933.
The Cubs backed Drott with
eight hits off an assortment of
four Giant pitchers. They bunched
four of them for three runs in the
fouth inning that sent Ray Mon-
zant, making his first start, to the.,
showers.
Pirates 6, Redlegs 3

runs for Pittsburgh.
Pirate starter Vernon Lawi'
pitched his way through all but,
the last two outs of th. marathon'
game, dealing out nine scattered
hits to the Redlegs.
Dick Groat singled in what
proved to be the winning run.
