AL All-Star Selections
Announced Yesterday,

Maxwell's Slam Beats White Sox, 9-7


BOSTON (IP) -- The American
League will field virtually an en-
tirely right handed hitting team
against the National League All-
Stars in Pittsburgh next Tuesday.
And the team, completed yes-
terday by Yankee Manager Casey
Stengel, also will include an ap-
parently fading veteran who still
is one of baseball's most feared
batters, a young pitcher and a
pitcher waived from the National
League for which he once was an
All Star.
The veteran is Ted Williams,
Boston's famous slugger who is
having a rough time so far this
Stengel Picks Williams
But, as Stengel told American
League President Joe Cronin:
"Who'd you like to have ready to
bat for ya" but Williams. This is
Williams' 15th time, as an All
Star and lie enters the game with
a .317 All Star batting average.
Bud Daley is the young Kansas
City Athletics pitcher picked for
his first All Star Game, a tribute
to a competitor.
Daley, 25, has worked his way
through the bushes and this is his
third crack at the big time. It
appears as if he's got it made.
Hoyt Wilhelm, currently famous
knuckler, is one of seven pitchers
named today by Stengel.
Wilhelm, waived out of the
National League, has been a bright
star for the Baltimore Orioles this
season. He was selected to the
National League team in 1953 but
did not see service. In those days
he was a relief pitcher.
So, to baseball men, it's under-
standable why Stengel added Wil-
liams to his squad.
Counts on Mantle, Williams
His only other heavy hitters
from the left side are the Yan-
kees' Mickey Mantle - when he
switches - and Yankee catcher
Yogi Berra who this year is
ranked behind Gus Triandos of
the Baltimore Orioles and Sherm
Lollar of the Chicago White Sox.
Stengel has only one other left
handed swinger, Boston second
baseman Pete Runnels who hits
sharply but is not consistently a
power hitter.
Stengel must start this team:
Bill Skowron, Yankees, first base;
Fox and Luis Aparicio of the
White Sox, second and short;
Harmon Killebrew, Washington
Senators, third; Rocky Colavito
and Minnie Minoso of the Cleve-
land Indians, and Al Kaline of

Detroit Tigers outfield, and Tri-
They are the ones selected by
vote of their fellow American
League players and, under the
rules, must play the first three
For the infield Stengel added
Frankie Malzone and Pete Run-
nels, third baseman and second,
baseman of the Red Sox, Vic
Power, Indians' first baseman, Roy
Sievers, Washington °first base-
man, and Gil McDougald, who
can play any of three infield posi-
Stengel chose McDougald over
Rocky Bridges, Detroit shortstop
who was runnerup to Aparicio in
the voting.

By The Associated Press
DETROIT - Charlie Maxwell
belted a grand slam home run in
the eighth inning and the Detroit
Tigers held off the rallying Chi-
cago White Sox in the ninth for
a 9-7 victory last night.
The injury-riddled Tigers moved
into third place in the American
League with their third straight
After Maxwell's homer gave
Tiger starter Don Mossi a 9-2
lead, the left hander weakened.
He gave up two walks, two infield
singles and a grand-slam home
run to Al Smith in the ninth.
Dave Sisler came on to get the
last two Chicago batters and save
Mossi's seventh victory of the
Neil Chrisley's two-run homer
in the third highlighted a three-
run uprising before 29,312 fans at
Briggs Stadium.
Pirates 4, Braves 3
PITTSBURGH-The Pittsburgh
Pirates, taking advantage of two
infield errors, loaded the bases in
the 10th inning last night and
scored a tie-breaking run on a
single by Dick Groat as they
whipped the Milwaukee Braves
Pinchhitter Ted Kluszewski led
off the 10th for Pittsburgh and
reached first when shortstop
Casey Wise fumbled his grounder.
Verinon Law bunted and was safe
when pitcher Don McMahon fum-
bled the ball. Bill Virdon bunted
safely down the third base line
to load the bases. Groat then
stepped to the plate and singled
to right through a drawn-in in-
field to win the game.
Dodgers 4, Cardinals 0
ST. LOUIS-Little Danny Mc-
Devitt took his fifth straight vic-
tory and pitched the Los Angeles
Dodgers back within a half-game
of the National League Lead last
night with a 10-hit, 4-0 shutout
over the St. Louis Cardinals.
The clever 26-year-old lefty was
in trouble several times but made
the Redbirds bat into four double
plays. McDevitt now has an 8-6
season record, with two shutouts.
A seventh-inning brawl en-
livened the Dodgers seventh vic-
tory in nine games with St. Louis
this season. An angry fan dashed,
onto the field and grabbed plate
umpire Bill Jackowski. Players and
police pulled the unidentified man

away from the umpire and he was
escorted from the field.
Cubs 10, Giants 4
CHICAGO - Ernie Banks
pounded a three-run homer and
Al Dark and Dale Long each hit
two-run blasts to propel the Chi-
cago Cubs to a 10-4 victory over
the San Francisco Giants last
Banks' shot over the left field
stands scored Don Elston, the
Cubs second pitcher, and Irv
Noren ahead of him in the sixth
inning. The runners had singled.
It was Banks' 22nd homer of
the season and ran his total as
a Cub to 205, tying Bill Nicholson
for second on the club's homer
role. Banks accomplished his 205
in 742 games, Nicholson his in
1,349. Gabby Hartnett's 231 is the
club record.
Banks, entering the All-Star
game Tuesday with more homers
than ever before at this stage of
the season, boosted his runs-bat-
ted-in to 75 in his 75th game.
Phillies 7, Reds 6
Reds 8, Phillies 4
grand slam home run last night
boosted Philadelphia to a 7-6 vic-
tory over Cincinnati in the opener
of a twi-night doubleheader but
the Reds came back to take the
nightcap 8-4 behind the six-hit
pitching of Don Newcombe. It was
Newcombe's eighth straight win.
The Phillies scored what proved
to be the winning run in the first
game in the fifth on Ed Bouchee's
double and Valmy Thomas' single.
In all there were four home runs,
two triples and seven doubles in
the two contests.
With the score tied 1-1 in the
second game, Gerry Lynch opened
the third inning for Cincinnati
with a single and scored on Frank
Robinson's double.
Then Gus Bell hit his tenth
home run of the season to give the
Reds a 4-1 edge they never lost.
Orioles 3, Yankees 1
BALTIMORE - Baltimore beat
Don Larsen for the first time in
a dozen decisions since 1955 last
night, defeating the New York
Yankees 3-1 on Bob Nieman's two-
run, two-out homer in the first
inning and winning pitcher Jerry
Walker's two-out single in they

The victory, ending Baltimore's
losing string at four, moved the
Orioles back into the first division
and spilled the Yankees to fifth.
The Birds did not reclaim third
place in the American League race
because Detroit won at Chicago
last night.
Walker, now 6-3, gave up six
hits, losing a shutout on Hector
Lopez' 13th home run in the fifth
inning. The young righthander
walked but one and struck out 10,
fanning Mickey Mantle three times
in a row.
Senators 6, Red Sox 3
belted the Washington Senators to
a 6-3 victory over the Boston Red
Sox last night with a dramatic 3-
run homer in the bottom of the
10th inning.
Lemon's blast into the center
field seats was his 19th home run
of the year. He clobbered a Leo
Kiely pitch with one out in the
extra inning and with Harmon
Killebrew and Roy Sievers on base.
Killebrew had doubled after Bob
Allison grounded out and Sievers
was purposely walked. The pass
only to delay disaster, for Lemon
was the next man up.
Reliever Dick Hyde was credited
with his first triumph of the year.

He got it after facing only four
men in the top of the 10th.
Athletics 6, Indians- 4
KANSAS CITY-Paced by Joe
Demastri and Bill Tuttle, the
Kansas City Athletics defeated
Cleveland 6-4 last night with an
11-hit attack and help of shoddy
Indian fielding.
The victory went to Ray Herbert
who gave up all of Cleveland's
runs and 10 hits before Johnny
Kucks rescued him from a jam
in the seventh inning. The victory
was Herbert's fifth against eight
Although losing, Cleveland held
on to first place in the American
League by one game. Chicago
could have taken over first, but
the White Sox lost to Detroit 9-7.
