The happiness boys new Yor for us Cardinal fans happiness is a Lead of 8l/2 games this week. Happiness is Orlando Cepeda batting .334, Curt flood hitting .325, Tim Mccrayer at .317. Most of All happiness is a right handed Pitcher named Richard Henry Hughes who worked nine weary Summers in the Bushes before slipping his Slider past Amajor league batsman. Who can remember when a team last led the National league by such a margin at any time in a season let alone at this Early Date one thinks first of 1964, the year the Phillies went off the Ridge. However they never got More than 7 games ahead. With two weeks to go their Lead stood at 6v6 games. They blew it All in seven Days. The year before that it was the dodgers who cherished illusions of grandeur. On july 20 they had an eight game Cushion but in september a 10-game winning Streak by the cardinals hacked the los Angele advantage to a single game. In St. Louis the dodgers won three straight. From there they breezed. View from the Summit unless memory is playing tricks we must go Back sixteen years to find a team sitting As pretty As Gussie Busch s playful peons. That takes us to 1951 and the Little Miracle of Coogan s Blu if when the new York giants is1/ games Back on aug. 11, finished in a dead heat with the Brooklyn dodgers and took it All on Bobby Thomson s playoff Home run. Red Smith these were sobering reminders that with 54 games still ahead red schoendienst s Mission was not yet accomplished. But if the cardinals whose winning percentage was .620 through their first 108 games can sustain that Pace they will wind up with 100victories. To beat them their closest pursuers the giants would have to win 42 of 53, for a percentage of .792. So it in t too Early to take inventory of this team starting with schoendienst s favorite Reading the batting averages. Behin Cepeda flood and Mccarver Are Lou Brock at .293, Roger Maris .289 and Julian Javier .283. You have to drop Down to Mike Shannon .263, and Bobby Tolan .260, to find the sort of figures the Yankees Admire. The Charm of this batting order is its balance. With Cepeda flood and Javier swinging from the third base Side the enemy dares not overfeed them on left handed pitching Mccarver Maris and Brock who swing from the first base Side get plenty of right handed stuff to hit. Into the breach come who saw this team in Florida picked it As a Sleeper in the race a playable Longshot at 8 to 1 in the Las vegas on july 15, a heavy blow fell. A line drive by Roberto Clemente broke Bob Gibson s leg eliminating a Pitcher whose Las four seasons brought 18, 19, 20 and 21 victories. That s where Dick Hughes bursts onto the scene. Actually St. Louis had been aware of his presence since last fall when he came up from Toledo pitched three witless innings in his firs big league appearance then went nine in a 2-0 shutout against the cubs. He lost his first Start this season won a game in Relief then beat Atlanta with a two hitter. Against Cincinnati he pitched seven perfect innings allowed three hits the rest of the Way struck out 13 batters and lost. That made his record two and two. From there he won five in a Row beating Chicago los Angeles Pittsburgh san Francisco and Philadelphia. The giants broke his string on june 28, and nobody has licked him since. His 10-3 record to Date is the main reason Why life has been Beautiful in spite of Gibson s misery. October song to in t the Only reason of course. Before a night game last week with the dodgers Steve Carlton was 10-6, Larry Aster 7-5, and Ray Washburn apparently free of Arm trouble at last 7-4. Nelson Briles has won six starting and relieving with Hal Woodeshick Ron Willis Joe Hoerner and Jack Lambe helping out. It is a solid team with a Superior Outfield sound on the infield now that Shannon has mastered third base excellent behind the plate where Dave Ricketts spells Mccarver. The Bench is no Hall of Fame but it is peopled by Guys who can do a variety of jobs like de Bressoud de Spiezio Phil Gagliano and Bob Hopes to be Back after labor Day. If he makes it and the cardinals have both him and Hughes fit in the stretch it la be meet me in St. Louis Louie in october. C 1967, publishers Hall Syndicate errors give depot title Ascom Korea 10 a co., Ascom depot scored 15 unearned runs on 14 errors to sweep a doubleheader from a co., 728th maps and win the Ascom soft Ball tournament.
