It s easy to be overlooked on a staff that features fireball Kings Sandy Koufax and Don Drysdale not to mention clutch Ace Johnny Podres of course and it s particularly True when you have a 5-6 won lost record for a team that a leading the league. But manager Walter Alston of the dodgers is a patient Man and he has kept Osteen in the rotation a because i know he is a Good Pitcher and will work his Way into winning Well the tall left hander acquired from the washing o n senators in a controversial Deal that sent slugger Frank Howard packing rewarded Alston a Confidence thursday night with a one hitter that gave the dodgers a 3-0 Victory Over the san Francisco giants.

Langford up sports writer Sonny Siebert is allergic to dust so naturally he wants to raise As Little As possible. Siebert who ranks As the biggest Surprise of manager Birdie Tebbetts fast developing Young Cleveland pitching staff dusted off the Washington senators 5-0 thursday night striking out 15 batters and yielding Only three hits. The senators barely stirred the dirt at Home plate while the 28 year old right hander retired 19 straight batters in one stretch to record his seventh Victory in to decisions.

A they re Young and still learning Quot crowed Tebbetts a but they re beginning to show results. And that Siebert throws awfully Tebbetts is also tickled Over his bullpen of Don Mcmahon Rookie Floyd Tex Weaver and Gary Bell. Market researchers to play big Bole a v Iii any future baseball expansion Boston up a Market research experts with computerized answers to All questions apparently will play major roles in any future baseball expansion or franchise transfers involving american league teams. That s the Only inference that can be drawn from the carefully guarded remarks of league president Joe Cronin when the subject of potential american league franchise Sites is forced into the conversation. Cronin considered a prime candidate for commissioner of baseball when Ford Frick retires was questioned by United press International on the subject of the Market surveys reported taken by professional football in the cities under consideration for franchises. A i think that s a business question Quot Cronin said. A that should remain within the realm of business. You can t expect me to give out that information. Does Macy Tell Gimbels everything Quot Cronin is equally reticent on the subject of the commissioner ship. A live said before Quot the former player manager and general manager insists Quot a that the Job should seek the Man not the Man seek the Job. Quot i Don t think anybody should Campaign for it Frick s position because the Job Calls for too much should baseball go outside for a new chief executive a it probably would be All right Quot he said but added a i Don t have a vote Quot on the matter. On the subject of baseball expansion Cronin does list three cities As possible Sites and is willing to talk about several others. He cites new Orleans Montreal and Toronto As major population centers and is willing to discuss the growth of Denver and Dallas. But Cronin who in 1959 was elected to a seven year term As american league president hastens to say a i Don t want to Hurt the minor league teams in any of the cities mentioned and i Don t want to encourage them to spend a lot of Money seeking a team. In order to even consider a thing like this you have to give a lot of things consideration. Would one City be better than another your opinion is As Good As mine. A i m a practical baseball Guy when expansion is mentioned. Right away i think of players farm systems population. All those things. Certainly you could have More teams but you have to give it very careful consideration first Quot Cronin added. N in Klaus Palmer Way Back but wont give up open St. Louis Nicklaus and happen to be gentlemen so up a Jack Arnold Palmer a pair of perfect they never use four letter words especially one like if position actually is everything in life maybe they a consider doing it because they re both in a pretty bad one As they tee up Friday for the second round of the , open championship. Cut concerns him about As much As making ends meet on his annual earnings. A if i had to worry about making the Cut i d just As soon be Back Home Quot he laughed. A i think about winning not making any Cut. I have to have a Good second round or i d rather not even make the in a Way the statements of Nicklaus and Palmer Are even More amazing than the horrible tigers top botox 6-5 a s Cash hits Home r in Detroit up a Boston red sox manager Billy Herman does t know where to look once those Ball games get close. It used to be that All Boston had to do was Call in Dick monster Radatz. But with Radatz getting hit hard lately Herman does t have any solid relievers. This was evident again thursday when a Home run by Norm Cash in the eighth inning gave the Detroit tigers another come from behind 6-5 Victory Over the sox. Not wanting to Call in Radatz when Stephenson weakened Herman first tried left hander Arnold Early. After Kaline s blast off Arnold Herman turned to Jack Lamabe. However Lamabe picked up his third loss against no wins for the season when Cash hit his round tripper. The Victory went to Detroit reliever Terry Fox who now stands 4-3 on the season. It was the fifth game of the last six that Boston has lost by one run. Detroit tied the score 5-5 in the seventh on a three run surge. Dick Mcauliffe started it with a Solo Homer off Boston starter Jerry Stephenson. Jerry Lumpe walked and one out later Al Kaline belted his 13th Homer of the season. Carl Yastrzemski shot Bat had kept Boston in the Lead during the first six innings. The Boston sluggers two run Homer in the first and a run scoring single in the third kept the red sox in the Lead. The win gave the tigers a sweep of the three game series and five victories in a Row including two Over the first place Minnesota twins. Boston sends Rookie Jim Lonborg 4-5 to the Mound tonight against Chicago Juan Pizarro 1-1 Ger of failing to make the traditional 36-Hole Cut after his hard to believe 78 in the opening round and Palmer hardly is in a much better spot with his 76. Neither is positive hell make the Cut but both say they sure Are going to try. A my 78 does t put me out of it Quot said Nicklaus oddly in Good humor after his wretched round. A i still think i can shoot the course in 65 or 66. If i shoot a 66, it la put me right Back in the Middle of the tournament with 144.&Quot if you want the definition of Confidence done to bother consulting the dictionary just look up Nicklaus.

A i three putted the first Hole and that was the Start of a Nice Day Quot Nicklaus quipped laughingly. A the main trouble was that i was getting my wrist in the wrong position. It was something i was fighting before the masters. A what i do wrong is Bend my left wrist Quot he said demonstrating. A the Ball starts left and because the face of the club is shut it goes More left. Naturally i was aware of it but i could t Correct it. I never hit to the right of anything All Well then How did he come by his Only Birdie of the round on the third Hole someone inquired a somebody Quot dead panned Nicklaus a got the Hole in the Way of my Ball and a 40-footer dropped Palmer who put one of his tee shots in a Cement Block among other things did t think he played that badly despite the score they Hung up on the Board alongside his name. A facts Are facts and i know i had a 76, but i did no to play All that badly. By that i Don t mean to say i played Well. It simply was a Lack of being Able to score Quot Palmer said. On his Way out of the press tent Palmer ran into visiting Dick Groat of the cardinals and he said to him a i d liken this to a ballplayer being in a what they ought to do is bring that Bugle player from dodger stadium out Here Quick.

St. Louis up a will Jack Nicklaus make the Cut will australian Kel Nagle go on to become the first foreign golfer to win the title in nearly half a Century those were the two key questions today As they teed up for the second round of the u. S. Open championship. The answer to the first question according to Nicklaus himself is yes. As for the answer to the second Nagle says it depends upon the wind. A if it comes up Strong and i have to go to bigger guns i just Don t know Quot said the 44-year-old australian who has won Many tournaments in numerous countries but never in the United states. Nagle held a one stroke Lead going into the second round Over the 7,191-Yard Bellerive course which proved so Tough thursday that Only three golfers in the Field of 150 were Able to crack Par with Nicklaus soaring to an eight Over Par 78. Nagle tamed the rugged course with a two under Par 68, which put him a stroke in front of Amateur Deane Beman and Mason Rudolph a touring pro. But those three were the Only ones to break Par on the Bellerive course despite the Ideal weather conditions which prevailed for the first round. There were a total of 79 golfers in the starting Field of 150 who had scores of 80 or Over and there were 44 golfers ahead of Nicklaus the 4 to i pre tourney favorite. Only the 50 lows and ties will qualify for the final two rounds of play saturday and sunday. A will shoot a 65 or 66 and make the Cut Quot Nicklaus predicted. A i know what a wrong with my games in a getting my wrist in the wrong position. It just happens. The face of the club is shut and the Ball goes so after his first round he went to the practice tee until he was satisfied that he had corrected his fault. Four players with even Par 70s, were two strokes off Nagle s Pace Gary player Tex Baxter Al Geiberger and Lou Graham. Of those seven leaders player the Little South african was the Only one who figured prominently in the pre tourney speculation on probable winners. Nicklaus was t the Only name Star in peril.
