ded a run in the ninth on Jack Clark's
double and Roger Metzger's single.
Cincinnati opened the scoring in the
second inning on Dan Driessen's single.
Reds starter Bill Bonham gave up
just two base hits in the first six in-
nings, both to Bill North. Then, with two
out in the seventh, Darrell Evans

ter Dane Iorg, Reitz followed with his
winning hit to left center.
Vuckovich didn't allow a hit after the
fourth inning. Reliever Ron Reed took
the loss.
The only Philadelphia baserunner af-

then retired the last 10 batters he faced.
Pirates 7, Expos 6
PITTSBURGH-Steamrolling Dave

outs in the bottom of the ninth inning in
a jarring home-plate collision with cat-

which resulted in the winning run by

MADISON (AP) - University of
Wisconsin football player Jay Seiler
died yesterday at Madison General
Hospital, a week after suffering a head

injury while making a tackle during
spring practice.
Seiler, 19, a freshman defensive back
from Schofield, Wis., had been in a
coma and was listed in critical con-
ditionall week.rFrom thehstart, his
chances for recovery had been
described as slim.
His injury came near the end of prac-
tice last Saturday afternoon, when he
tackled a ball carrier during a dummy
drill in which players run at only about
three-quarters speed.
Seiler got up and went back to the,
huddle, then returned to the sidelines.
Later he complained of dizziness and
nausea. He was uncoixz ious by the
time a rescue squad arrived.
He underwent three hours of
emergency surgery, but Dr. James
Tibbetts, the neurosurgeon who per-
formed the operation, said yesterday
that he had shown no improvement
during the week.
Seiler suffered what doctors
described as an "acute subdural
hematoma." A vein was torn in the
main sinus, allowing blood to ac-
cumulate beneath the brain.

Special to The Daily
CHAMPAGNE, Ill. - The Michigan
tracksters opened their 1979 outdoor
season 0with a quadrangular non-
scoring meet against Illinois, Western
Illinois and Northwestern in Cham-
pagne yesterday.
Instead of team veterans leading the
way for Michigan, however, freshmen
dominated many of the races and field
Shelbey Johnson, a freshman from
Inkster, beat out a veteran field in win-
ning the 400 meter intermediate hurdles
in 53.56 seconds. He also finished a
strong second to captain Arnett
Chisholm in the 110-meter high hurdles
with a 14.6 second time. Chisolm was
clocked at 14.55.

"In these 50-point games it seems like
a flip of the coin will make the differen-

ch. "It was tight. It's so shsort about

Fitzpatrick didn't begin playing

"I used to lose, and that was dull,"

Practice is the word. Fitzpatrick
estimates she puts in at least two hours
three nights a week in maintaining her
talent. Lhotka is no differentk, the
champion gets in his four hours a day at
the table without fail.
Lhotka, who fhad the highest run of
the tourney with 47 balls, plans to enter
the Air Force once he graduates, while
still honing his pool game in hopes of a
pro career.
Lhotka and Fitzpatrick were un-

Johnson added.
Steve Brandt, another freshman,
running unattached, coasted to a sur-
prise victory in the grueling 10,000-
meter run. Since he was a half-miler
throughout high school, his win in the
six-plus mile race was especially im-
pressive, as was his 30:49.5 clocking
against a very strong wind.
"I just found out I was running in the
middle of the week, so I took advantage
of the opportunity. But I'm excited,"
said Brandt.
Other outstanding performances
came in the 800-meter run from fresh-
men Mark Pruente and Mike Shea, who
finished fifth and sixth respectively.
Jimmy Ross leaped an outstanding 24-8
in the long jump.
