St Louis Sporting News (Newspaper) - June 13, 1964, St Louis, MissouriTile cats Sharp Eye spots flow in Barber style by Doug Brown Baltimore. My. For the orioles it was a week almost like the four or five that preceded it. Niggardly support for Robin Roberts repeat performances of Stu Millers escape act. Another Victory for Rookie Marvel Wally Bunker the one run win All the familiar features were present As the orioles remained just a step behind the league leading White sox. There was Only one deviation from the Norm. Steve Barber won a game. At Long last it appeared that the 25-year-old Lethander who last season became the first 20-game Winner in modern Oriole history had found the answer to his pitching problem. Or More accurately coach Harry cat Brecheen found it for him. Brecheen noticed that Barber was Rushing the Start of his delivery. It Only sounds simple. If it actually had been Brecheen and his Pupil would have corrected it Long before. A like i been telling you All along i did t realize i was doing anything wrong a Barber said. A but cat said my delivery was fouled up. He said i was being too fast with my hands at the Start of it and told me to slow up. A the result was that my Arm was getting ahead of my body. Now my fast Ball is moving More and with less Effort on my part. At last i think in a read to do a decent Job for the it no one disputed Barber s observation that win no. In accomplished against the Angels on May 31�?had been a Long time coming. At this time last year he had an 8-3 record. After the 2-1 Victory Over the Angels his log was Only 1-2, As a result of the pulled Back muscle which kept him Idle 23 Days and the subsequent difficulties he had getting returned. Chances slim for 20 wins a a in be got to bet against my winning 20 again a he said. A i d say its highly improbable. But in a so tickled the Way the club s going in general i done to care who gets the Barber not Only decision Ned the Angels but he did it impressively. After having failed to survive More than five and two thirds innings in his previous starts three following his injury Steve went seven against l. A. When he departed he was working on a three hit 2-1 win and showed no signs of weakening but manager Hank Bauer thought he spotted an Opportunity to add a Cushion and lifted Steve for a Pinch hitter. It was an attempt by Bauer to change what has come to be the accepted script and it did no to work. The one run Vogue had become too firmly established. It was the orioles fifteenth win in 16 one run verdicts. A thrill a minute a said Miller who preserved the one run win for Barber and another for Roberts in the opener of the series in l. A. I must have paced five Miles up and Down that Long sighed Bauer. A a we re winning these jobs on Steve Barber Miller off to fat getaway in defense of Relief Crown Baltimore. My. A Oriole Relief Ace Stu Miller seems intent on repeating As the american leagues top fireman. He appeared in 20 of the Birds first 42 games registering seven saves and four wins for a total of la Relief Points. Last year he led the league with 31 Points 26 saves and five wins. Harry Brecheen pitching and defense. A Little Luck too maybe but when we get a break we take advantage of in the series opener the orioles in a burst of generosity presented Roberts with a 3-0 Lead after one and one half innings. To a Guy who had received Only 12 runs in his previous 67 innings an average of less than two per nine inning this seemed like a most generous ration. Robin shocked by Cushion Robin was so touched by the gesture that he almost forgot what he was about. The Angels soon made it 3-2, but Roberts plodded on until Bauer paged Ivl ii Lei in the eighth. Bird seed while Norm Siebern was recovering from a pulled Groin muscle for four games. Boog Powell and Bob Johnson shared the first base Job. At the mention of last years june swoon when the orioles lost 22 of 30 games and tumbled from three and one half games on top to seventh place. Hank Bauer snorted a Fie on the june swoon. That was last year.�?�. Gino Cimoli signed after Russ Snyder suffered a broken leg went 0-for-4 in his Oriole debut on May 31. Luis Aparicio went on a .368 spree to raise his average from .181 to .276. The 2-1 win on May 31 gave the orioles a 31-30 Edge Over the Angels in their lifetime rivalry. Never before had the Birds been ahead. Dick Brown did an admirable Job filling in for Catcher John Orsino who was out with a jammed wrist. Pete Ward Ron Hansen Dave Nicholson Chison junk punch a no Judy act Ward big Man in muscle show Mcgraw hit by Krai irk White sox raise How l Chicago 111.�?the White sox a and particularly Tom Mccraw Are steaming mad at Pitcher Jack Kralick of the indians. The White sox think Kralick intentionally hit the first baseman during the june i game at Cleveland. Kralick denied the charge. Before he was hit in the seventh inning Mccraw had singled to Center in the third and rapped a stinging liner off Kralicky leg in the fifth. The latter blow was an out because the Ball conveniently bounced to first baseman Jerry Kindall. In the seventh Kralick had two strikes on Mccraw and then with his next pitch he hit the Chicago player on the top of his right hand. The result was Only a Bruise. A the sporting news june 13, 1964 cubs continued from Page 2 pull away from the pack. This will be a wide open race right Down to the wire. A if our pitching continues to jell like it has the past week. Then we can hold our own against anybody. Finding that extra starter to go with our top three is the key to Success for us and Slaughter could do it for us. A Only time of course will Tell. But hell get every Chance to win a regular starting Job. We re going to work him in rotation As the no. 4 Slaughter who is a product of Danville 111., was Farmed out to Amarillo last june after being signed out of Arizona state University. He led the Texas league with an Era of 3.00 while winning ten and losing seven. Quick promotion for youngster he was one of two first year men on the club in the Spring the other being first baseman Johnny Bocca Bella who graduated from Santa Clara last june. Johnny was Farmed out As the designated first year Man and Slaughter was kept because Kennedy figured a Pitcher always could gain experience mopping up. But he a graduated from that Low estate far sooner than expected. Bruin briefs by winning three out of four from the braves the cubs compiled a 15-15 record in May. Dick Bertell was hit in the Back with a line drive in batting practice. May 31, and had to retire from the game after four innings because he throw. The cubs have signed Tom Hillary 6-6, 225a first baseman from sum to a St. Cloud Northern contract. The shuttling of cub coaches to and from the minors for instructional purposes continues. Lou Klein is now Back from Salt Lake City and Bobby Adams has begun a tour of St. Cloud Wenatchee Northwest and Caldwell Pioneer. A the cubs four game winning Streak their longest of the season was snapped on june 3 when the cards Defeated them 7-5. The previous Day the Bruins had shelled the cards Curt Simmons for four homers in a 5-2 Victory. By Jerome Holtzman Chicago ii it was a merry merry month of May for the White sox. They marched past the memorial Day Milestone in first place which they have held almost continuously since May 6. And when they awoke Here on june i they had the Best won and lost record in the majors a 23 victories against la defeats a whopping 14 games Over the .500 level. Moreover suddenly the White sox were no longer playing pitch and putt and scraping and scratching for runs. They were hitting the Long Ball As never before and this added to their sensational pitching enabled them to maintain a torrid Pace and look toward the Long summer ahead with enthusiasm and Promise. Al Lopez the Veteran White sox manager who has been saying since last Winter that this could be a Pennant winning club did no to resort to any of the i told you so routines when the team arrived Here after sweeping a four game memorial Day week end series from the tigers. But Lopez was smiling the Pennant smile of �?T54 and �?T59 because he Felt this club would continue to improve. They look better every Day indeed after six weeks of the season the constant improvement of these White sox was possibly the most astonishing Factor. It is a club that improves with the tick of the clock from week to week from series to series. There can be absolutely no doubt that the White sox As they entered june were ten to 20 per cent better than they were on the first of May. That could be attributed to several factors first it is a Young club average age 27 stocked heavily with players in their first second third or fourth major league seasons secondly Pete Ward the injured third baseman was Back in the lineup hitting fourth and slugging the Ball into the right Field seats. Whereas Ron Hansen and then Dave Nicholson had been carrying the offence providing it with the Long Ball Ward began shouldering the big Load. From May 23 through the May 31 double header at Detroit which covered nine games. Ward connected for five homers two of them grand slams. No weak Sisters in lineup moreover everybody else continued to hit. This Wasny to merely a situation where one player was picking up another Etc. The entire club from top to Bottom suddenly came alive with unexpected Power with the result that a High ratio of the clubs blows were for extra bases. Manager Lopez Wasny to eager to compare this �?T64 offence with the attack of �?T59, but he left no doubt that this club has considerably More batting strength throughout the lineup. The Only spot where the �?T59 Hose had More Power was behind the plate where Sherman Lollar held Forth. All three current sox catchers combined j. C. Martin Camilo Carreon and Jerry Mcnertney done to equal Lollar a Wallop. The �?T59 sox won on Speed pitching and defense plus a spectacular year by Jim Landis. That the �?T59 sox were punch and Judy hitters is at sox still easy for Sherry �?T59 world series Nemesis Detroit Sherry the Relief Pitcher who won two games for the dodgers in the 1959 world series and saved two other victories still has his magic where the White sox Are concerned. Sherry who is now with the tigers faced the sox in regular Competition for the first time since the �?T59 series in the first game of a May 31 double header Here. The first Batter he faced was Jim Landis the Only White sox player remaining from the �?T59 Pennant club. Landis was called out on strikes. By tested to by the records. They were the Only team in the majors with fewer than too homers. They had 97. This club had 33 homers after May 31, an average of one a game. Four players went into june with five or More homers. Nicholson had seven Ron Hansen and Floyd Robinson had six each and Ward had five. The �?T64 sox also appear to have a better pitching staff than the �?T59 team. In �?T59, two starters. Early Wynn and Bob Shaw had big years and Gerry Staley and Turk Lown were sensational in Relief. Bull pen has depth going into june the sox already had three big starters in Tuan Pizarro. John Buzhardt and Gary Peters each of whom had won at least five games. Their Bull pen of Hoyt Wilhelm Don Mossi Eddie Fisher and Frank Kreutzer offers More depth than Staley and Lown. Sox yarns Al Weis who has been the clubs regular second baseman since the third game of the season suffered a Freak Accident in Detroit May 30, when he stumbled in the tigers dugout and gashed his head on the Concrete overhang. Eight stitches were required. Don Buford replaced Weis during the remainder of the series and did Well knocking out a triple and his first major league Homer in the next three games. Hoyt Wilhelm the amazing reliever made six appearances from sunday through sunday May 24 through May 31 and was Brilliant. He got three saves in this Span and protected leads As the finishing Pitcher in two other victories. Gary Peters the Sophomore Southpaw was having his troubles. Pete still Hadnot finished a game in ten starts and May miss a Start because of a Blister on the Middle Finger of his pitching hand. The Blister popped in Detroit on May 31. Peters has been slugged Tor ten homers which is one More than he yielded in 243 innings last year. Ray Herbert the Veteran right hander was disabled again this time with a tender Elbow. Jerry Mcnertney the Rookie Catcher slugged his first major league Homer on May 30. It was off the tigers Phil Regan. John Buzhardt a Streak of walk less innings ended on May 29 when he walked Gates Brown. It was Only the fourth pass of the season for Buzhardt and his first in 37 innings
