Rookie's two homers do trick,
Twin fielding preserves win
By ED HERSTEIN
Special to the Daily
DETROIT - The Detroit Tigers' "magic number" re-
mained at 12 last night as the Minnesota Twins came up with
a magic number of their own to beat the Tigers 2-1.
The Twins performed their sorcery with No. 28, right-
fielder, Greig Nettles, whose two home runs ruined a fine
performance by pitcher Pat Dobson (5-6).
The Tigers time and again seemed to have caught on to
starter Jim Perry's bag of tricks only to have a Minnesota
fielder pull a little white ball out of his glove.
Two nice fielding plays prevented the Tigers from knock-
ing Perry out in the first. Dick McAuliffe walked, after swing-
ing at a couple of bad pitches. Mickey Stanley followed with

a single to right and Jim
Northrup lined the first pitch
up the middle.
But Frank Quilici speared it at
his shoe laces and tossed to Rich
Rollins at third. McAuliffe, who
had almost crossed the plate, was
easily doubled off.

Rug gers take
easy 1 first win;
soccer begins
The Michigan Rugby Club trav-
eled to Windsor yesterday and
came home with their first victory
of the season.
Though this was the first game
scheduled and there have been
relatively few practice workouts,
the ruggers surged to a 14-0 mar-
gin over the Borderers.
Fullback Tom Fagan accounted
for the first eight points with a
penalty kick, a try, and a con-
version. Another try by Gordy
Jones ended the first half scoring.
Bob Siegel, who played in place
of injured Mike Johnson, added
the final three points on a penal-
ty kick.
Meanwhile back in Ann Arbor,
the new members of the club had
their first taste of actual game
play in a trial game.
* '* ,'
Anticipating a highly successful
season, Michigan's soccer club will
swing its collective feet into action
at Toledo Sept. 21.
"This is the best squad I've
ever played on in terms of person-
nel and depth," said co-captain
Les Feldman, beginning his third
season. "We're shaping up well in
most areas, and I predict we'll
win at least five or six, if not all,
of our games," he added. Last
year's squad compiled a 3-1 lo ,
while the 1966 team won four of
five matches.
Junior Tom Smith serves as
team manager, and co-captain
Wiley Livingston completes the
triumvirate which -acts as an un-
official coaching body.
Because ,soccer at Michigan is a
club sport, the university provides
no coach or transportation, as it
does for varsity NCAA sports. The
pitchmen will play other varsity
NCAAteams, however.
Center forward Jerry Vagelatos
will lead the offensive attack.
Hervan Drobney will also play up
front. Feldman, Smith, and Liv-
ingston will man the halfback
slots, while fullback Ted Coen
spearheads the defense. "The only
problem position, where we're not
set yet, is goalie," Feldman stated.
The booters will play three
home games: Sept. 28 versus
Cleveland State; Sept. 29 against
Waterloo; and Oct. 12 opposing
Toledo. Besides the opener at To-j
ledo, the club will play three other
away matches: Oct. 19 at North-
ern Illinois; Nov. 2 at Central
Iowa; and Nov. 16 at Kentucky.
Anyone interested in playing on
the team should contact Feldman
at 761-5681 or Smith at 764-1778.

Cocky McLain
talks success
(EDITOR'S NOTE: The following
story is from a personal interview
with Detroit Tiger pitcher Dennis
McLain during a promotional ap-
pearance in Ann Arbor yesterday.)
By BILL LEVIS
Associate Sports Editor
Denny McLain doesn't seem
overwhelmed by his success this
this year.
He expected it all the time.
The 24-year-old Tiger pitcher,
who won his 28th game of the sea-
son Friday night, seems' bored by
all the reports asking him con-
sistently, "Why have you been
winning so often this year?"
Denny McLain knew he could
do it from the beginning. That's
why he got so upset when the
Chicago White Sox left him un-
protected in the first year draft
in 1963.
He showed his vindictiveness by
beating the White Sox with a
home run, 4-3, in his first major
league appearance with the Tig-
ers. His vendetta against the Sox
has since cooled down but not his
pitching ability.
He was candid enough to ad-
mit, "There really isn't too much
I could do to avoid a year like this.
Every time I look around, the
batters are hitting right at some-
one. And my own teammates have
been amazing. Whenever I need
two runs, I get two, and when I
need six, I get six."
It appears so simple but with
a little coaxing, McLain does con-
cede there are other reasons for
his fantastic success this year.
"I'm pitching more away from
Tiger Stadium for one," he chuck-

early as possible for his players.

vigorating for others, like quar-
terback Don Morehead.
Brown was definitely off for the
afternoon: missing receivers, ex-
ecuting poorly, and screwing up
his timing.
Elliott explained after the game
that Brown "was hit on the head
sometime in the game and that
definitely hurt his performance."
Elliott added that Morehead per-
formed in an "excellent" fashion.
Harris found it difficult to hang
onto the ball on both long and
short passes, and he incurred the
noticeable wrath of the coaches.
The Blue offensive got off to a
very slow start in the scrimmage.
managing to score only once in
the first half. That touchdown
came on a short blast by halfback
Ron Johnson into the endzone, the
first of three Johnson tallies.
Tim Killian, who appears to be
emerging as the team's number
one kicker, booted the extra point.
The offense bogged down again
and again in the first half be-
eause of an inability to remain
consistent and to pull off the big
play when it was needed.
One optimistic note was struck
in the first half when sophomore
Tim Killian kicked a 37-yard field
goal for the Gold team.
The third quarter featured more
of the first half and the addi-
tional spice of another Johnson
score and a missed extra point by
Killian.

A pass interference call on
Mark Werner gave the Blues the
ball on the Gold 17 but they failed
to capitalize. Another drive peter-
ed out on the Gold three.
Things heated up a little more
in the fourth quarter as Morehead
seemed to spark the club. Johnson
drove over from the one: More-
head ran in standing up from the
six; Morehead passed complete to
John Gabler from the four; and
Jim Betts took a pass in from the
eight. The scoring was coipleted
at that point.
After the game the squad par-
ticipated in 50-yard dashes which
Elliott called "conditioning."
"I was pleased with a lot of
things," he said thereafter. "We
did a better job in the stadium
this week and improved a lot of
things."
Opening day is 13 days away.

FOREST HILLS, N.Y. (AP) -
Ebullient Billie Jean King huffed
and puffed her way into the last'
round of the women's singles and
trigger-tempered Clark Graebner
assured an American men's final-
ist with victories that rocked the
old concrete stands yesterday in
the U.S. Open Tennis Champion-
ships.
Billie Jean, already holder of
the Wimbledon open and rated
the world's no. 1 woman player,
rallied for a 3-6, 6-4, 6-2 semifinal
victory of the injury-plagued
Maria Buenos of Brazil.
The 24-year-old Long Beach,
Calif., housewife goes into t h e
women's final today against Vir-
ginia Wade:

Clark Graebner of New York
joined his U.S. Davis Cup mate,
Athur Ashe, in the semifinal of
the men's division by beating
John Newcombe of Australia, a
rookie pro who won both the U.S.
and Wimbledon titles a year ago,
in a postponed match.
Graebener, the tall, bespecta-
cled son of a Cleveland dentist,
took the court and in 19 minutes
of slashing tennis completed a
5-7, 11-9, 6-1, 6-4 quarter-final
triumph over Australia's fourth-
seeded John Newcombe.
The victory placed him in the
semifinal bracket opposite his
Davis Cup teammate, Arthur Ashe,
the new U.S. amateur champion,
whom he will play today.
