BOSTON (AP) - Willie Randolph
drove in five runs, three with a bases-
loaded double, and the New York
'Yankees exploded for 21 hits Thursday
'night in a 15-3 victory over the Boston
Red Sox.
Winning for the 13th time in their last
j5 games, New York moved within
three games of the first-place Red Sox
in the American League East.
Randolph, Thurman Munson and Roy
White had three hits apiece as the
Yankees went on their biggest hitting
and scoring binge of the season.
The Yankees made short work of
Boston starter Mike Torrez and con-
tinued their assault on Andy Hassler,
ick Drago and Bill Campbell. Every
few York batter except reserve out-
lielders Paul Blair and- Gary
T'homasson had at least one hit in
helping hand the Red Sox their seventh
;efeat in the last nine games. However,
lew York had to withstand two scares.
Veteran pitcher Catfish Hunter
retired with a 12-0 lead after suffering a
pulled groin muscle in serving up a
triple to Carl Yastrzemski at the start
bf the fourth. Then, with New York in
front 13-2 in the sixth, catcher Thurman
unson was hit in the head by a pitch
brown by Drago.
Hunter's injury was not serious.
unson did not lose consciousness and
walked from the field under his own
power. The Yankees reported he
probably will be able to return to the
lineup Friday night.
The Yankees scored two runs in the

Lees clobber

first, three in the second, two in the
third, five in the fourth, one in the sixth
and two in the eighth in the romp.
Reliever Ken Clay earned his third vic-
tory in seven decisions. Clay was
greeted by Carlton Fisk's 20th homer
after Yastrzemski's triple in the fourth
but allowed just one unearned run the
rest of the way.
Phillies fly
CHICAGO (AP) - The Philadelphia
Phillies completed a 15-game, five-city
road trip Thursday, which Manager
Danny Ozark said could have proven to
be the doom for the two-time defending
National League East champions.
But instead, he said it served as a re-
vitalization, as the Phillies, who en-
tered the trip with a 22-34 road record,
won nine games including Thursday's
5-3 triumph over the Chicago Cubs.
"When we left home, I don't think
anybody gave us a chance," to return to
Philadelphia with the division lead,
said Ozark. "The media thought we'd
just go through the motions and fold.
"We hadn't been playing well at
home, but we got our pitching and hit-
ting going in the Los Angeles series,"
Ozark said. "I think the challenge has
been there all the time. We've been
waiting for this team to play well, and
now we're doing that."
Thursday's victory enabled the
Phillies to retain their slim lead in the
NL East over the Pittsburgh Pirates.
The Cubs, meanwhile, lost for the fifth

consecutive time and fell seven games
off the pace.
Larry Bowa's run-scoring double
capped a three-run rally in the seventh
inning and Ted Sizemore's sacrifice fly
drove in the go-ahead run in the eighth
as the Phillies won their third straight
game.
Dodger in the sky
HOUSTON (AP) - Los Angeles pin-
ch-hitter Vic Davalillo's sacrifice fly in
the eighth inning scored Dusty Baker
from third base and led the Dodgers to
a 3-2 victory over the Houston Astros
Thursday night.
Baker, who earlier clubbed a solo
home run, walked to lead off the eighth,
was sacrificed to second on Rick Mon-
day's bunt and went to third on a single
by Joe Ferguson.
Davalillo's sacrifice sailed into
shallow left field but Dennis Walling's
throw to the plate was well behind
Baker's slide.
The Dodgers took the first lead in the
game on Steve Garvey's RBI single in
the first inning after Bill Russell had
doubled. Houston matched that run in
the second when Jose Cruz doubled and
scored on Walling's single to right field.
Baker cracked his 11th homer of the
season to put Los Angeles back on top in
the fifth and Houston pulled even again
in its half of the inning on Terry Puhl's
sacrifice fly.
Burt Hooton, 17-8, got the victory
although he left the game when

losox
Davalillo pinch-hit in the eighth.
Demongello, 9-13, was the loser.
Giants fall
ATLANTA (AP) - Glenn Hubbard
broke a tie with a run-scoring single in
the eighth inning Thursday night to give
the Atlanta Braves a 6-5 triumph over
the San Francisco Giants, as Vida Blue
failed for the sixth time to record his
17th victory.
The score was tied 5-5 and Dale Mur-
phy was on second base when Hub-
bard's grounder off John Curtis, 4-2,
barely eluded the reach of shortstop
Roger Metzger, allowing Murphy to
score the winning run. Craig Skok, 3-1,
the fourth Atlanta pitcher, picked up
the victory.
Blue, who has suffered three losses
and now has had three no-decisions in
his quest for victory number 17, pitched
the first six innings, allowing three runs
on four hits.

Campus sports shops
give students chance to

run with
By DIANE SILVER
For students, September usually means the beginning
4f late night hours spent bent over books with tensions in-
creasing as exam time draws nearer. But millions of run-
ners have discovered they can relieve the tensions of school
or just day-to-day living by running for as little as 20
minutes three or four times a week.
*Besides feeling more relaxed, the runner also obtains
beneifts ofeirobic exercise, and a sense of health and well
being. Even as a social event, running has found a place of
its own as more and more couples are finding their way to
the roads.
THERE ARE very few excuses you can give for why you
shouldn't run. You can run anywhere at anytime with the
only necessities being a good paid of running shoes and a
pair of shorts.
There are several places right on campus where you can
buy all kinds of running clothes and equipment.
Phidippides at 213 E. Liberty specializes only in running
gear. They carry Tiger, Etonic, Nike, New Balance,
Brooks, Adidas, and Reebok brands of shoes.
At Phidippides, where all the employees are runners
themselves, you can find about 40 different styles of shoes.
These include racing flats, training shoes, spikes, and four
styles of women's training shoes.
PHIDIPPIDES SPORTS six different kinds of shor-
ts- -Frank Shorter, Phidippides, Sub 4, Ron Hill, Dolphin,
and Moving Comfort (strictly a women's line). They also
carry warmup suits and Frank Shorter and Ron Hill rain
suits.
Their shoe stock is kept full by getting in new shipments
ot the middle of each month, explained Bruce Dyer, half
owner of Phidippides.
Hard cover and paper back books, posters, and most run-
ning periodicals are also for sale at Phidippides. They also
expect to offer resoling by the end of this month.
"WE'RE WILLING to talk about running here," said
Dyer. "People can come in and talk about their problems
without feeling they have to buy anything."
The Athlete's Shop at 309 S. State also carries a variety of
running equipment and clothing, as well as shoes and
lothes for other sports.
Nike, Adidas, Tiger, New Balance, Brooks, and Converse
shoes are carried there. At The Athlete's Shop, where all
the employees run for fun and fitness, you can find 46 styles
of running shoes, and over 100 styles of shoes all together.
THE RUNNING SHOES include racing flats, training
shoes, spikes, and 11 styles of women's training shoes.
Athlete's Shop manager Craig North feels he has a wider

the pack
selection of sizes readily at hand than anyone else in the
city.
Running shorts by Adidas and Sub 4 can be found there,
as well as Dolphlin and Sub 4 shirts. You can also find
Adidas rain jackets and a variety of warmup suits.
People have had the misconception that The Athlete's
Shop only carries Adidas, North explained. "We're trying
to get area running enthusiasts acquainted with what we
have to offer."
MOE'S SPORT SHOP at 711 N. University carries a
variety of running merchandise as well as clothes and
equipment for other sports. They feature shoes by Tiger,
Brooks, Etonic, Adidas, Converse, and Tred 2.
Moe's carries over 65 styles in all, including shoes for
other sports. These include racing flats, training shoes,
spikes, and four styles of women's shoes.
Moe's keeps a running inventory of their shoes so they
can keep popular syles in stock. "Since running has become
so popular specialty stores have been popping up all over.
As a result, instead of sending one store a good supply of
shoes, companies have been sending lots of stores a
mediocre supply. We try to avoid this problem by keeping a
large inventory," explained Moe's owner, Bud Van De
Wege.
Moe's also carries shorts by Wilson, Speedo, Ocean, and
Sportcraft.
NOW THAT YOU can see that unavailability of running
gear in Ann Arbor is no exuse for not running, you will hve
to know what to look for in a running shoe.
Running shoes cannot be compared across brands, nor
will a shoe that is good for one person be good for another,
was the consensus among the running shoe merchants. Dif-
ferent shoes have different features and you have to weigh
which features are best for you against the features that are
bad for you, explained Dyer.
Of course, a good fitting shoe is important, and everys
tyle is going to fit differently, offered Van De Wege. "The
customer should try on as many styles as needed to find the
best fit."
FORE-FOOT FLEXIBILITY, light weightness, a snug
fit in the width, a good arch support, and a shock absorbant .
midsole are also characteristics to look for in a good shoe.
"The runner should have about inch of room at the toe
to allow for the elongation of the foot while running," said
North. "Since the foot will hit the ground approximately
1200 times in one mile, cusion and a good arch support are
of the utmost importance."
As running has become more popular endless amounts of
information have become available. I'd like to tell you
more, but I've got to run.
