Daily Sports Analysis
That magical-mystical September month is upon
us. The professional and college football seasons
have kicked off, the North American Soccer League
has just crowned the Vancouver White Caps as their
new Soccer Bowl Champions, and the major league
l aseball pennant race is heading down the stretch.
Exhilarating.
As usual, Boston and New York will be battling for
the AL east title, while Texas and-Kansas City will
battle for the AL west division honors.
Hold everything! That was last year's battle of the
big ones.
' Yes, September is mystical. Mystical this year
because neither Boston, New York, nor Texas is bat-
tling for any American League top spot.
h Magical because we see two pre-season "nobodies"
ICalifornia and Baltimore) perched atop the AL
aivisions with only three weeks left in the regular
schedule.
' Will there even be a nip-and-tuck battle for either
American League playoff spot this year? In the East
another hot September showdown looks remote, but
out west, K. C. appears to be warming up for a run at
thelirst place Angels.
2 Two major factors in the Royals' attempt to rise to
the. top are their pitching staff and the continued hot
hitting of their All-Star third baseman, George Brett.
This year's pitching staff has been inconsistent, to
;ay the least. That mvay be K.C.'s downfall. Their
team ERA is a dismal 4.54; better only than the lowly
Seattle, Oakland, and Toronto teams.
Paul Splitorff, a 20-game winner last year, has only

chalked up 13 wins against 13 losses to lead the team
in victories and his 3.84 ERA hardly qualifies him as
a staff ace.
Out of the bullpen, K. C. Manager Whitey Herzog
has been using free-agent-to-be Al Hrabosky as his
work horse. The "Mad Hungarian," has not respon-
ded to the task very well. In 50 appearances this
season, Hrabosky has given up 54 hits and sports an
oppressive 4.33 ERA.
Looking at the offense, we see a balanced attack
that can get the fireworks a poppin' for the Royal
fans. Leading the charge is Brett who currently leads
the league in runs (105), hits (189), doubles (40), and
triples (17). Herzog's third baseman is also
challenging Boston's Fred Lynn (.337) for the batting
crown with a .325 average.
To aid the 26-year-old Brett is speedster Willie
Wilson, (66 stolen bases), who is hitting .309, and the
powerful duo of Amos Otis and Darrell Porter.
But Kansas City fans should not get overly excited.
California is still in the driver's seat. With the sur-
prisingly well-rounded pitching and hitting corps
with which Angel Manager Jim Fergosi has to work,
the race to the finish could easily turn into a yawn.
Though fireballing Nolan Ryan, (13-10, 3.38 ERA,
192 K's), anchors the Angels' pitching staff, Fregosi
has his share of hitters as well. His team is.second
only to the booming Boston Red Sox in team batting
average with an impressive .282.
Catcher Brian Downing and first baseman Rod
Carew provide a devastating hitting attack batting
.331 and .324 respectively. Left fielder Don Baylor has
been an awesome power hitter with a .294 average, 32
home runs and a league-leading 125 RBIs.

SL honors,
Everything considered, the Royals seem to have
blown their chances for a fourth consecutive crown.
After taking a '/2-game lead over the Angels last
week, they have fallen to four games back. California
and K. C. meet for a three-game series in the Angels'
home surroundings the 24-26 of this month, and that is
when the tougher of the two should emerge to the top
of the AL west to stay. After their final meeting,
Fregosi and his squad will travel to Texas for three
games with the Rangers, and Herzog's Royals will
face the lowly Oakland A's in a three-game set as
well. It should be three easy wins for the team that is
on top, regardless of the pressure.
Over in the East, it's dull, boring, and unexciting.
Baltimore has a firm grip on first place. Their
closest contender is Milwaukee, who trail by a
distant 12% games, despite being 23 games over .500.
Not even the magical month of September should
spoil manager Earl Weaver's chance at the title. His
pitching staff headed by Mike Flanagan (21-7, 186
k's), Jim Palmer (8-5), Scott McGregor (11-4), and
Dennis Martinez (15-12), is the strongest in the
league.
This group of "unknowns" may not have the
highest batting average in the league, (.261), but
their consistent hitting is more than adequate to
carry them into the playoffs.
October can only be more exciting for baseball fans
as California and the Orioles meet in a battle for the
right to meet the National League representative.
Without the usual AL baseball thrills this Septem-
ber, we'll have more time to watch Bo and his boys
grind it out in their weekly Saturday clashes, because
"this" magical-mystical month will have no sur-
prises.

A hard d
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP)
- Controversial basketball coach
Bobby Knight, back home in In-
diana, had his six-month senten-
ce reaffirmed yesterday after he
refused to appeal his conviction
of assault against a Puerto Rican
police officer during the Pan
American Games in July.
The Indiana University coach,
who said Sunday that he has no
intention of ever, returning to
Puerto Rico, formally was sen-
tenced by District Judge Rurico
Rivera. Knight also was ordered

ay's Knight
to pay a $500 fine, the maximum
for a misdemeanor charge. Both
the sentence and fine originally
were announced when Knight
was found guilty in absentia last
Aug. 22.
The judge immediately issued
an arrest order. It was not expec-
ted, however, that Puerto Rico, a
U.S. Commonwealth, would at-
tempt to extradite Knight back to
where he coached the U.S.
basketball team to a gold medal
in the Pan American Games.

SPORTS OF THE DAILY:

Yaz stillo
By The Associated Press
BOSTON - Right-hander Bob
stanley pitched eight innings of four-hit
lall for his 15th victory in 24 decisions
and Jim Rice had two runs batted in as
te Boston Red Sox defeated the
Aaltimore Orioles 3-21ast-night.
. The Orioles' Dennis Martinez,
however, thwarted Carl Yastrzemski's
bid for hit No. 3,000. Yastrzemski, with
2,999 hits, went hitless in four at-bats,
grounding out three times and striking
out swinging.
i FRED LYNN doubled home a first-in-
hing run and Rice followed with a
sacrifice fly which scored Rick
Burleson. In the-third, Rice tripled in
yrin, who had doubled. The loss snap-
ped Baltimore's seven-game winning
streak and gave Boston only its sixth
iictory in its last 22 games.
Nonetheless, the Orioles (94-47) still
lead second-place Milwaukee (83-60)
y 12 games in the AL East.
Detroit (76-68), of course, is still in fif-
th place, 1 games ahead of sixth place
dleveland who invade ; Tiger Stadium
Tonight for a three-game series.

COMPUTER TERMINAL
Imagine how easy it would be to access the computer from your
dorm room or apartment. No more walking, or driving, to the
computer center and waiting in line to use one of the terminals. Well,
you don't have to walk and wait anymore. Now you can rent a
terminal for as low as $51/mo. and be able to use any computer with
a time-sharing system (like U of M or EMU), just by adding an
acoustic modem and your own telephone. It's that simple'.
We, at CompuMart, have been selling terminals for more than 7
years. We buy in large quantities, so we can save you money,
whether you are buying or leasing. Come see our complete line of
terminals in our Ann Arbor store. Test each one for yourself. As you
can see below, we offer a wide variety of quality terminals at low
monthly lease rates for as little as a month or as long as 5 years. You
can even form a group and share the monthly expenses.
Our monthly depot service gives you 48-hour service and covers
parts and labor. If you decide to buy, you can apply 50% of your lease
money towards the purchase price. However, only 50% of the retail
price can be paid in this manner.
CompuMart offers much more than terminals, though. We have all
w the major Micro-computers including Apple, PET, Sorcerer, AIM and
KIM. We stock peripherals, supplies and computer-related books
and magazines, too. So, if you need a terminal or you're interested in
computers, stop by our store. We're open Tues.-Fri. from 11 to 7
and Saturday from 10 to 5, and we're located at 1250 N. Main
in Ann Arbor (1 mile north of Huron).
