Dover Daily Reporter (Newspaper) - May 23, 1964, Dover, Ohio Page 36, The Daily Reporter, Dover, Ohio Saturday, May 23, 1964Mays Lifts Mark Back Above .400 By MIKE RATHET Associated Press Sports Writer Willie Mays made four hits— one without a bat. Willie, the captain, made a big hit before the game when he turned in San Francisco’s lineup card to the umpires. Willie, the player, made three big hits during the game, collecting his 17th homer and two singles and regaining the National League batting lead while the Giants retained the league lead by walloping Pittsburgh 8-3. Making his debut as team captain, Willie ambled to the plate before the game, and ran smack into his first inspection. Head Umpire Chris Pelekou-das asked Mays to review the Candlestick Park ground rules. Willie did, and headed for the dugout. He never got there. Umpire Vinnie Smith, smiling broadly, asked for a repeat performance for the benefit of the other umpires. Mays, however didn’t do anything for the benefit of the Pirates. He drove in the Giants’ first run with a single in the opening inning, singled in the third before Willie McCovey and Orlando Cepeda hit consecutive homers and then hammered his homer in the sixth. The 3-for-5 performance lifted Mays’ average to .405,, giving him back the batting lead he lost to Billy Williams of Chicago Thursday.

He is survived by the widow and four daughters. Funeral services will be held here Tuesday.

Miss Wright Moves Up At Dallas, But Ruth J essen Ahead DALLAS (AP)—Ruth Jessen led the $13,500 Dallas Civitan Open into its third round today but the tall shadow of long-hitting Mickey Wright, women golf’s greatest winner, hung over the tricky 6,238-yard Glen Lakes Country Club course. Miss Wright, seeking her fifth tournament victory in seven starts this year, fought high winds with a magic putter Friday as she soared in with a three-under-par 68 that left her just one shot back of Miss Jessen. The blonde Miss Jessen was having her troubles, the biggest a triple bogey eight on the 15th hole where she blasted out of a sand trap only to go out of bounds. She limped in with a two-over-par 73, and the three-stroke lead she had held after the first round melted like butter in the Texas sun. Miss Jessen had 137 for 36 holes while Miss Wright was second with 138—one stroke better than Louise Suggs, threetime winner of the Civitan who made her bid with a fine 68 Friday.

Elsewhere, Philadelphia’s Chris Short shut out the Los Angeles Dodgers 2-0 on eight hits, St. Louis belted Milwaukee 6-1 behind Curt Simmons’ three-hitter and the New York Mets edged Houston 2-1. The Giants on Mays* line-up card rattled 16 hits off Pirates’ starter Steve Blass and three successors with Tom Haller also connecting for a San Francisco homer. Ron Herbel won it with Ken MacKenzie^ ninth-inning relief help. The Cubs, shut out on two hits for five innings by Reds’ starter Joe Nuxhall, erupted for seven hits and eight runs in the sixth. Williams. Jim Schaffer and Jim Stewart each drove in a pair while Billy Cowan accounted for the other run. Bob Buhl coasted for a 4-1 record. Short, 2-1, beat the Dodgers for the fifth straight time. The Phillies scored the only run he More Drivers Seek Spots In ' Encounter needed against Don Drysdale, 5-3, in the sixth when Richie Allen reached base on an error, moved to third on a single by John Callison and scored on Wes Covington’s sacrifice fly. Callison scored the other run in the ninth after stroking his fourth hit. Simmons, 6-2, got home run support from Ken Boyer and Julian Javier and the combination was more than enough for the Cardinals. Felipe Alou collected two of the Braves’ hits and Joe Torre the other. Torre scored the Milwaukee run when he singled in the fifth and moved around on a walk, an infield out and a fielders choice. The Colts scored against Al Jackson in the sixth when Jim Wynn singled and raced home from first on Walt Bond’s single. The Mets finally broke through in the eighth when Roy McMillan and Ron Hunt singled and Frank Thomas doubled for both runs. Larry Bearnarth got the victory with Hal Brown taking the loss. Major League =_Leaders= By DALE BURGESS Associated Press Sports Writer INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The 16 - mile Indianapolis Motor Speedway record set last week by Scot Jimmy Clark looked safe as a bank vault today as cars lined up for the next-to-last qualifying session for the 48th 500-mile race May 30. Clark, who will race in the Dutch Grand Prix Sunday, pushed the qualifying record up to 158.828 miles an hour in his new rear-engine Lotus - Ford. The 21 cars that qualified on the first weekend of the trials averaged a record 153.063. Twelve positions were open in the field. Jack Brabham of England, like Clark a former world road-racing champion, also is committed to the Dutch Grand Prix. He will fly back to the Netherlands tonight after attempting qualification at the speedway today in a rear-engine Offen-hauser he built himself. Brabham was second in line for trials starting at ll a m., EST. He was first when time ran out last weekend but swapped places with Bob Christie, Grants Pass, Ore., who may try to qualify the conventional Dayton disc-brake Offen-hauser for his ninth straight 500. Blistering heat forecast over the weekend probably will help reduce speeds. Friday also was hot, however, and Bobby Marsh-man was practicing at 55.199 in his Lotus-Ford with a load of fuel. Bobby Unser of Albuquerque, N.M., whose brother Jerry was killed at the speedway in 1958, had a Studebaker-Novi up to 154.3 Friday and could be fastest of the late qualifiers. The Novi crew evidently had conquered valve troubles that kept their two cars from qualifying last week. After 33 cars have qualified, another can make the field only by qualifying at a speed higher than that of the slowest of the 33, which then, in speedway jargon, is “bumped.’* By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS American League Batting (60 at bats) — Olive, Minnesota, .392; Freehan, Detroit, .367.
