Before a sell-out crowd of 51,-
378 at Riverfront Stadium in
Pittsburgh, the Pirates, despite
wasting numerous scoring op-
portunities, evened the Fall
Classic at two games apiece.
The first inning gave every
indication of a high-scoring
game. Paul Blair led off the
game with a line drive single to
left center. Mark Belanger and
Merv Rettenmund followed with
infield singles to load the bases
and start action in the Bucs
bullpen. After a passed ball and
two deep sacrifice flies to center
by Brooks Robinson and Boog
Powell scored three runs for
Baltimore, Pittsburgh mentor
Danny Murtaugh decided to
bring in Kison. Kison retired
the side on one pitch.
The Bucs came back to score
twice in their half of the first
on a walk to Dave Cash and
back to back doubles by Willie
Stargell and Al Oliver.
The Orioles only hit off the
baby-faced Kison came in the
second on a bloop double by
Blair. As the ball hit in front
of Oliver, it took a high hop on
the artificial turf, allowing Blair
to reach second.
For the only time in the game
the Pirates went down in order
in the bottom of the second.
After Kison set the Birds
down in order in the third, a
fired-up Pittsburgh team tied
the game. Richie Hebner de-
livered a one out single to cen-
ter. and Roberto Clemente sent
a shot down the right field line
that umpire John Rice ruled a

the batter's box after a heated
argument, he slammed a single
up the middle sending Hebner to
second. Oliver then tied the
game with his second consecu-
tive hit, a? single to right scor-
The only threat by either
team in the third inning ended
when Cash hit into a double
play for Pittsburgh.
Baltimore went down in or-
der in the fourth. Pittsburgh
got two runners on but failed to
Kison his his second batter in
the fifth but the Orioles failed
to capitalize. The Bucs again
loaded the bases in their half
but failed to score.
In the sixth frame, Kison set
a new World Series record by
hitting his third batter of the
game. But Baltimore again
couldn't muster any offense as
the runner never got past first
Pittsburgh threatened in their
half when they loaded the bases.
Between singles to Jackie Her-
nandez and Cash, Kison struck
out. Grant Jackson then reliev-
ed Pat Dobson, the Oriole start-
er. After Hebner lined out to
the third baseman, Clemente
walked, but Stargell hit a weak
grounder to the second base-
man to retire the side.
Kison's whiplash delivery
once more stopped the Orioles
in the decisive seventh. In their
half Robertson and Sanguillen
stroked singles up the middle
off the new Oriole hurler Ed
Watt, after Oliver struck out.
Vic Davaillio, hitting for Her-
nandez, lofted a fly ball to left
center which Blair dropped.
Quickly retrieving the ball, he
threw toward home. Robertson
stopped at third, but Sanguillen,
not seeing Robertson, rounded
second and was caught in a run-
down. Then May, hitting for
Kison sent a clothes-line single
to right scoring Robertson, with
the winning run.
Dave Guisti retired the last
six Oriole hitters to preserve the
victory for Kison.
The Pirates stranded 14 men
on the bases and have now left

of the big men in the Detroit

University of Michigan medical
center yesterday for observation
and possible surgery of his right
eye which was cratched in an ex-

Bing's injury came during an
exhibition game against the Los
Angeles Lakers. He missed the
Pistons' last three tuneups for the
National Basketball season but was
in the lineup when the Pistons
beat New York in the season open-

did not improve.

The women's field hockey team
here at Michigan has had several
years of experience. Last year, In
intercollegiate competition against
Eastern and. Western Michigan,
the women posted an 0-2 record.

All but two of the 15-20 women
who are on the team are experi-
enced, either from previous sea-
sons or from competing in high
The team is scheduled for six
games this year. The first contest,
last Monday, was won by Eastern
Michigan 3-1, in what was con-
sidered a close game. The major
problem was that the Michigan
team couldn't score against East-
ern's more experienced defense..
The women are quite intent on
fielding a good team. Their prac-
tices are rough, with no holds
barred. Miriam "Midge" Ross, the
goalie, was quick to point out that,
"I don't want to be made out to
be a jock." A few seconds later
she savagely slashed one of the
women coming in for a practice
shot. In a lady-like manner
though, she contended.
On a more serious side, there are
a few problems that the team has
overcome or is trying to solve.
Their practice field is Wines field,

available practice space.
The team is not an intercolle-
S--_ _ _
giate varsity team, so they must
ask athletic director Don Can-
ham for equipment and the neces-
sary money every year.
Phyllis Weikart is the coach,
but she is not paid for the time
she devotes to the team. She also
has a conflict with the hours she
teaches and the practice times of
Sheryl Zady is the elected man-
ager who conducts the practices
when Weikart can't get away.
Sheryl wants the team to turnl
varsity, and that is the biggest7
problem facing the women.
Canham stated, "There is a
good chance of the field hockey
so the men in IM sports and the
team turning varsity." He even
suggested that it would be a good
idea to get the women to join a
national intercollegiate associa-
tion, specifically the Association
for Intercollegiate Athletics for
But Marie Hartwig, Professor of
Physical Education, who would
help the women approach Can-
ham, has her doubts: "The rea-
son that women's sports are ex-
tramural instead of varsity are
that the levels of skill and par-
ticipation are not up to those of
These problems are in the pro-
cess of being resolved. The women
involved naturally want t h e m
solved as quickly as possible, be-
cause as one of the women re-
marked, "We're struggling just to
keep our heads above water, we
have to deal with the men for
In spite of the disadvantages,
the women generally feel that
there are some bright points in
playing field hockey. Senior Janet
Hooper indicated that "the wom-
en's sports are more social, we
have refreshments after every
game with the other team."
Hmmm, imagine, Bo Schem-
bechler asking Woody Hayes and
the boys over for milk and cookies
after the game.

Taylor trots triumphant trail

It's T-minus 188 yards for B.T.
Billy Taylor needs less than
twice the length of a football field
to become the alltime leading
Michigan rusher, and a good game
against Illinois could do it. The
senior tailback really ploughed
through Michigan State last week,
and despite all his aches and
pains, breaking the record against
the Illini this week is not out of
Taylor has been accumulating
all kinds of bumps and bruises
in his career, the most recent be-
ing an extremely sore left arm
and a slight shoulder separation,
courtesy of Michigan State's Brad
But B.T. still managed to pick
up 117 yards in only 15 carries
against the Spartans, and when
asked about the record said, "I fi-
gure if I'm close, I'm gonna' get
it: I'd like to stay in and try. I
don't think anyone will mind
The 5-11, 200-pounder has
been averaging "only" around 100
yards a game this year but he has
more often than not been playing
less than half a game. Against
State the Barberton, Ohio, pro-
duct was in for only 21 plays.
Two years ago against Iowa
Taylor ran for 225 yards and the
week before, against the Illini he
picked up 155 yards. In neither
game did he play for over three
quarters, so it's easily within the
realm of possibility that he could
break Ithe record, set by Ron
Johnson, before the hometown:
fans this week.
The Man himself admits "I
think about it, (the record), and
it'll be a big day." But he adds,
"I have no set time when I get
the record, I'm just doing a job."
"Actually, I don't think about
it as much as I thought I would,"
he confessed. And indeed he was
surprised to find out how well he
had done in last Saturday's game.
since during a game, he has little
idea of how much yardage he is
Coach Bo Schembechler, like
Taylor, isn't that interested in re-
cords, admitting, "I don't care (if
he breaks record), I'd like to see
him get it, but I don't really care."
Bo, of course, IS interested in
his star runner's physical condi-
tion. Taylor is seeing little action
in practice this week and is still
heavily taped. But that doesn't
mean he wants it that way. Tues-
day, Schembechler said "Taylor
wanted to hit today but I would-I
n't let him."
This was somewhat reminiscent
of last Saturday's game when B.
T., injuries and all, kept ,asking
to be put in the second half and
Bo finally relented. For his ef-
forts Saturday Taylor was given
the game ball-normally awarded
at the end of the year. But
Schembechler gave it to him after
the game, adding "I thought he
did a great job."
Despite seeing limited action in
practice this week, Schembech-
ler expects Taylor to be at full
strength Saturday. In the mean-
time, Alan Walker has been doing
most of the running with the
One person who won't be ready
for Saturday is Kevin Casey. Cas-
ey has had a sore shoulder and
didn't play at all against Michi-
gan State. Tom Slade, who played
the entire State game at quar-
terback "is definitely starting
against Illinois" according to Bo,
but has not secured the starting
role permanently. Larry Cipa has
also seen plenty of action this
week and could press Slade if the
sophomore should falter.
