X-RAY

The San Francisco Giants lost six out of seven games and fell to second place

Hitting it big are Kansas City's Preston Ward (.333) and St. Louis' Gene Green (.350). The Athletics obtained Ward, a 30-year-old first baseman, from the Cleveland Indians last week. Rookie Green got his chance at right field when Wally Moon hurt his arm, has impressed everyone since then with his strong arm and consistent hitting.
