BUCS LEAD, 3-2:
Pirates grab lead in ninth

From Wire Service Reports
BALTIMORE-Manny Sanguillen, the much-traveled
35-year-old catcher, delivered a run-scoring pinch hit single
in the ninth inning to give Pittsburgh a 3-2 lead last night in
the second game of the 1979 World Series.
The Oroles led the series, 1-0, entering last night's contest,
played in an intermittent rain and near-winterlike tem-
peratures. The third game will be played tonight at 8 in Pit-
tsburgh.
The Pirates reached Jim Palmer for two runs on three
hits in the second inning and led 2-1 after three.
Willie Stargell singled opening the Pittsburgh second and
moved to second on a single by John Milner. Bill Madlock
then shot a single to right, scoring Stargell with Milner
moving to third. Milner scored on Ed Ott's sacrifice fly to

center field, and Pittsburgh led, 2-0.
Baltimore got its run when Eddie Murray led off the bot-
tom of the second with a long home run off Bert Blyleven, just
inside the right field foul pole. -
The Orioles tied the score at .wo in the bottom of the sixth.
Ken Singleton led off the frame with a single to left. Eddie;
Murray followed with a run-producing double to the left fieI
wall, plating Singleton.
Baltimore appeared ready to grab the lead in the eighth.
when it placed runners on first and second with none out
against reliever Don Robinson. In an apparent bunt situation,
manager Earl Weaver ordered John Lowenstein to swigg,
away. Lowenstein responded with a sharp grounder to short,.
where Tim Foli converted a double play.

Piston backcourt weak

jured reserve list in order to bring the
Pistons down to the 11-man team limit.-
A major obstacle that the Pistons
must overcome this season is the lack
of team experience. Vitale is carrying
four rookies in addition to those
veterans picked up in the off-season.
One of the rookies is former Michigan
standout Phil Hubbard. Hubbard is
having a considerable amount of
trouble adjusting to the NBA. "Phil's
having trouble switching from a back-
to-the-basket center to a power for-
ward," Vitale said.
ANOTHER PART of the Pistons'
rookie contingent is Greg Kelser of
Michigan State fame. According to
Pistons' management, Kelser will not
start the opener, but will play at the
quick forward Oosition as much as any
of the other forwards.
The Pistons' brass is doncerned about
the lack of cohesiveness and timing in
the backcourt. With second-year man
John Long and newly-signed James
McElroy, the Pistons, 1-6 in exhibition
play, will have to settle for on-the-job
experience.
"I'M GOING to get this job done, I'll
tell you that," Vitale said. "If we get
lucky and win 40 basketball games, I
think we would make the playoffs. And
if we mature, I would not want to play
the Pistons in a short series because
anything could happen."
We'll see, coach.-

western opener for, the Wolverines, com-
pleting one of fourpasses for five yards,
while rushing for three yards.
A further change in the Wolverine'
quarterback situation is the movement
of sophomore Jim Paciorek to tight
end. Paciorek was hampered by knee
surgery early on this fall, and Schem-
bechler said he felt the 217-pounder
from Orchard Lake would help the
squad more at tight end.'
Paciorek, like Lee, was billed as a
possible starter last spring, but once
fall drills started the competition for
number one status narrowed to Dickey,
Wangler and Lee.

West power(
By BILLY NEFF
Once upon a time, not too long ago,
there was an incredible magic show
just an hour to the north of us. Unfor-
tunately for the East Lansing faithful,
this magic show, better known as Ear-
vin Johnson, has moved westward to
the klieg lights of Hollywood and the
Los Angeles Lakers..
Fortunately for the Lakers, "Magic"
Johnson did pass up his last two years
of eligibility at Michigan State and
should provide the enthusiasm and ball
handling wizardry to take the Lakers to
the division title in the NBA's power-
packed Pacific Division. However, his
Lakers will be challenged all season by
as many as four other teams, one of.
which will include Mountain Man, Bill
Walton.
IN PAST YEARS, superstar center
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has not had
much of .a cast surrounding him. His
statistics are always outstanding, but
inconsistent play from his supporting
cast has allowed teams to double and
triple team the league's best center.
Johnson's enthusiasm, the play of
stellar backcourtman Norm Nixon and
steady Keith Wilkes will lead the
Lakers to the division title. The .ad-
ditions of Jim Chones and Spencer
Haywood will allow Jabbar some
needed rest and rebounding help.
Once the playoffs start, enthusiasm
alone doesn't mean that much. Enter
the Seattle Supersonics, last year's
NBA champions, who depict beautifully
what the team concept means in
basketball.
THE BEST guard combination in
basketballtoday, playoff MVP Dennis
Johnson and Gus Williams, pace the
Sonics. Clutch performers Williams and
Johnson hiked their regular season
averages of 19.2 and 15.9 ppg. to 25.9
and 20.9 respectively, in the playoffs.
If Coach Lenny Wilkins looks behind
him, he may. find the Phoenix Suns
closing in on him. And the Sonics
remember the Suns well, for in last
year's playoffs, the Suns led the Sonics
3-2 before eventually succumbing in
seven games.
COACH JOHN MacLeod possesses
perhaps the league's finest and
quickest forward in second team All-
pro Walter Davis, who averages nearly

d by Magic
24 points a game. His partner at for-
ward, Leonard "Truck" Robinson, one
led the league in rebounding and last
season averaged over 20 points a game.
At center, Alvan Adams, if healthy, is a
very effective passer.
Guard may be the only questionable
spot for the Suns. Paul Westphal is a
solid All-Pro at one guard and Don Buse
complements him well at the other slot.
But there is no depth here as first round
draft pick Kyle Macy of Kentucky is
taking his last year at Kentucky.
The Portland Trailblazers should
chug in a distant fourth, despite having
what may be the fourth best team -in
basketball. Bill Walton is gone, and
super rookie Mychal Thompson broke
his leg, so only talented power forward,
Maurice Lucas is there to hold down the
fort. The Blazers do possess Tom
Owens and have added Kermit
Washington, though.
THE SAN DIEGO Clippers welcom'e
the Mountain Man, Bill Walton, but his
health is a very "iffy" thing, as usual,
according to Clipper management. f
Walton is healthy, Gene Shue's charges
will be strong, but Walton, always the
consummate team player, might get
awfully angry playing with gunners
Lloyd Free and Freeman Williams.
Forwards Sidney Wicks and Nick
Weatherspoon are unimpressive.
Rounding out this loaded division are
the lowly pGolden State Warriors, who
have never been the same without Rick
Barry. In addition, Phil Smith is out un-
til the first of the year, according to
Warrior brass. John Lucas and Robert
Parish will have to perform magic to go
anywhere in this powerful division.

conquer
cold, rain ;
By BOB EMORY
"We just love the rain," said Wol-
verine field hockey.,coach Candy Zien-
tek after yesterday's freezing cold slp-
filled and drizzle-abused game against
Kalamazoo College at Ferry Field was
over.
Zientek said it about ten times and so
did most :of her players, includingt
freshwoman Dee Jones who, scored a
three goal hat trick as Michigan stoi-
ped all over the Hornets, 10-0 for victory
number six against two losses and a tie.'
IT WAS THE third win in the rain for;
the Wolverines this year, who last week
came back from a two goal deficit to
beat the defending state champion
Michigan State Spartans 3-2, in the
rain, of course.
For Jones, the game took on a special
meaning. "I set a goal for myself at the
beginning of the year to just score one
goal," said the dripping wet fresh-
woman. With the hat trick, she now has
four goals on the year and has easily
surpassed her preseason aim. /
The Wolverines also got scoring help
from Mary Callam and Jan Isaac, who
each scored twice while Jennifer
Haughey, Alexandra Callam and Wen-
dy Clark added solo scores. For fresh-
women Haughey and Clark, the goals
were the first of their Michigan
careers.
It was the fifth shutout of the year for
the Wolverines and the fourth time they
have prevented their opponents from
even getting a shot on net.
