Orlando Is Man-Sized
Headache To Pitchers
By FRED DOWN
UPI Staff Writer
They say Orlando Cope-la is
just a growing boy but groggy
.National League pitchers insist
he's a man-sized headache.
.- The pitchers don't look any
sicker, however, than the experts
who thought Sun Francisco's 21
year old slugger might succumb
to the "sophomore jinx."
It was Lew Burdette's turn to
say "puss the aspirins, please'
Tthursday when C'epcda drove in
seven runs with two homers, a
double and a single in the Giants'
.11-5 .victory over the Milwaukee
Braves. . .
, ,,The Braves took an early 5-1
lead but Cepedu's two-run fourth
inning homer cut the margin to
5-3 and his tlrec-run blast in the
fifth put the Giants in front. Or
lando doubled with the buses
filled to drive in the Giants' lust
two runs in the eighth. -Braves'
The victory cut the Braves'
first-place lead to 2'4 games. M'he

their 9-3 victory ovor the St.
Louis Cardinals, the Cincinnati
Beds downed the Los Angeles
Dodgers, 5-3, and the Chicago
Cubs shaded the Philadelphia
Phillies, 3-2, in the other NL ac
tion. ; ,.i
They'll be computing the Amer
ican League standings with a
slide rule soon because only 4'i
gumes and 96 percentage points
separate first and seventh places.
The Chicago White Sox' 8-5, 17-
innintf win over the Dullimore Or
ioles boosted than into first place
with a .503 mark. The JVew York
Yankees, who crushed Detroit
14-3, arc in seventh with a .4B7
average. And even the Boston
Hod Sox, who ended Kansas
City s five-game streak, 5-2 aren't
too fur buck at .435 and six
games to make up.
Stu Miller shut out the Braves
with three hits for the last five
innings but the victory went to
Gordon Jones, who was the
"pitcher of record" when the
Giunts staged their decisive rally
Homer, Triple Aid Bucs
Bill Virdon's two - run homer
and Bill Mazeroski's two-run tri
ple were the key blows as the Pi
rates ran their winning streak to
six gumes. lion Kline yielded 13
hits but left 12 Cardinals strand
ed and went the distance for his
fiftli victory. One St. Louis hit
was the 05 1st douhlo of Stan
Musial's career lying Honus Wag
