On Tuesday, June 6, the Yankees, who are still leading the National League pack, dropped their second game of the season in a close 6-5 decision to the Giants, who is holding down the second spot in the National Division of play.

In other league action last week the Cubs scored the first of two victories during the week, downing the Dodgers by a 12-6 score. The pair of wins moved the Cubs into the second spot in the American Division.

Payton had three hits for the Pirates, Ray Dodson and Dave Machaham two each for the Rangers. SPORTS NEWS & VIEWS I Im From Page 9 fan a clear picture as to why Ramey's, an out- standing semi-pro basketball team, sponsored and co-coached by Roger Ramey, always had trouble beating one of the top teams in both the Winchester, Va., and the Waynesboro, Pa., semi- pro cage tourneys. On three successive oc- casions Ramey came close to winning the top tournament prize, only to lose heart-breaking decisions to the Maryland All-Stars and wind up with third place in the tournament. Each time Ramey's gave the Marylanders a real run fol the crown, only to lose out either in the closing seconds of play, or overtime. The real story of the All-Stars came to light recently in the Washington Post when Gary Davidson gave an interesting and factual story about the Stars. Davidson said basketball is an expensive hobby with John Harris, who sponsors the Maryland team. He said the expenses for the Maryland All- Stars during the 1976-78 season amounted to $7,900.00, with about $3,300.00 of the sum coming out of the pocket of Harris. The team, during the year 1976-77 season compiled a record of 56-6 and finished as a runner-up in the National Amateur Basketball Association tournament. Harris said this past season he was forced to keep expenses down as it. ran slightly less than $5,000.{}0 by playing fewer games. The team wound up with a 26-3 record. Harris said about $2,600.00 of the past year's expenses went for a trip for the team to Chicago where the All-Stars, representing the Metropolitan Washington area, defeated a Chicago team to take home the national title. And as a reward for this accomplishment, the Maryland Stars expect to represent the United States on a European trip, still to be arranged. So you can see what type of tough competition the Ramey cagers were up against the past two seasons in tournament play in Winchester, Va., and Waynesboro, Pa.
