Roger Craig and Bob Buhl, who
a yea" ago wondered if they had
any future at all in baseball,
scored the most important vic
tories of their careers in the clos
ing hours of the National League
pennant race.
But, even so, they were forced
to share th headlines with 34-year-old
Sam Jones, who pitched
one of the greatest "Money''
games of all time in vain.
Craig, a 28-year-old right-hander
from Durham, N.C.. pitched a
six-hitter to beat the Chicago
Cubs, 7-1, and insure the Los An
geles Doigers a tie for the flag,
while Buhl, bushy-browed fire
baller from Saginaw, Mich., re
ceived credit two hours later for
Of Win
geles Dodgers left Chicago today
fully confident of returning to the
Windy City before the week is out
to meet the Chicago White Sox
in the World. Series.
The business at hand, however,
was a trip to Milwaukee to meet
the Braves in the first game of
a best-of-three playoff to deter
mine the National League pen
nant winner. ,
The players, who worked their
way into the playoff with a 7-1
victory over the Chicago Cubs
Sunday, predicted they would be
back to battle the American
League champions.
"Too bad we don't get a day
off before playing the Braves.
Then we could work out at Comis
key Park to get used to it for
the Series," said Don Zimmer.
Manager Walt Alston refused to
count his chickens that way.
"We've got to take care of the
Braves first," he said. "I think
it would be a jinx to say any
thing about the White Sox now."
The Dodgers, behind the six-hit
pitching of Roger Craig and two
run homers by John Roseboro and
Charley Ncal, scored an easy
victory on the field compared to
the one they sweated out while
listening to a radio account of
the Phillies-Braves contest at Mil
waukee. Announcement of the Braves
victory took some steam out of the
dressing room jubilance, but the
players expressed confidence that
nothing could stop the Dodgers
momentum now.
"We'll beat the Braves," said
several players.

umph over the Philadelphia Phil
lies. Craig Wen 11th
Craig, who had made only two
hits in 51 previous at bats, sin
gled home the first two Los An
geles runs in the second inning
and it was a walkaway thereafter
as Charlie Neal and John Rose
boro iced the cake with two-run
homers. Craig, who didn't join
the Dodgers until June, won his
11th game while striking qui two
batters and walking two.
Buhl, aided by Don McMahon
in the eighth and ninth innings
after departing for a pinch-hitter,
gained credit for his 15th victory.
He battled Jim Owens on a 1-1
basis until the seventh inning
when the Braves shoved across
three runs on two singles, a walk,
an error, a balk and an jnfield
out. McMahon, making his 58th
appearance of the year, yielded
three hits but was touched , for
only a ninth-inning run.
Jones answered his critics ence
and for all Saturday night with
his seven-inning no-bit, - 4-0 ' vic
tory over the Cardinals. It was
all in vain for hard-luck Sam
who finished with a 21-15 record
because his no-hitter won't be
counted officially and his victory
was wasted when the Giants blew
their Sunday doubleheadec to the
Cardinals, 2-1, and 14-8.

past the Beavers, 15-14 in the last
After a stout OSC defense had
held Tech to a minus nine yards
in the opening half, quarterback
Ken Talkington peppered the
Beaver secondary with passes in
the second half and then scored
both Raider touchdowns on keeper
plays from the one-yard line.

Sophomore halfback Bake Tur

a half left in the game Talkington
hit Turner for a 34 yard gain to
the OSC five. Two plays later
Beaver fullback Chuck Marshall
was called for pass interference
on the Beaver one, and Talkington
dove over the line into the end
zone to tie the score at 14-all.
Then the Raider field boss
stepped back and booted the one
point conversion try true to nail
the win.
A pair of sophomore did all the
