BALTIMORE MP-The Baltimore
Orioles will trot out today for the
sixth game of the World Series
against the Pittsburgh Pirates
prodded by a reminder of a past
disaster-a poetic reminder framed
in this little ditty:
"Remember the Mets-
It took a year
Now we can do itj
In two days here."
The four lines were chalked on
the blackboard in the Orioles'
dressing room yesterday by the
clubhouse attendant, Clay Reid.
And they underscore the Orioles'
challenge as simply as possible.
Their three defeats in Pittsburgh
sent the Orioles into game No. 6
trailing 3-2 in the best of seven
series that determines the best
team in baseball for 1971.
On the eve of the crucial sixth
game, Manager Earl Weaver de-
clined to name his starting lineup
but did reaffirm that right-hander
Jim Palmer, who won the second

game, would be his starting, pitcher
against Pirate right-hander Bob
Now the Orioles stand one de-
feat away from having the Pirates
lock up their first championship
since 1960 while destroying the
myth of Baltimore invincibility.
"Two games is nothing," Weaver
said. "I'd rather be down 2-3 than
0-2. They just went to work and
did the things they did all year.
Now we'll have to do the things
we did all year."
Things are going exceptionally
well for the Pirates, who are with-
in one victory of a feat never before
accomplished in the 49-year history
since the Series was changed from
nine games to the best of seven
Only four teams in that period
have been able to come back and
win the Series after losing the first!
two games. No team has ever been
able to do it by running off four
consecutive victories.
Despite all the pre-game words,
"it will all boil down to who's the
best pitcher Saturday," Weaver
insisted yesterday.
On paper, that's Palmer.
Palmer posted a 20-9 record dur-
ing the regular season and won
the second game, allowing seven
hits and three runs in eight in-
nings. Moose, 11-7, during the regu-
lar season, pitched in relief in the
first two games, allowing eight hits
and six runs in 42/3 innings.
However, what's been on paper
hasn't meant much in this Series.

There are only three unbeaten
teams left in the Big Ten and one
of them will be seriously challeng-
ed today. Along with Michigan
and Ohio State, the Boilermakers
of Purdue have compiled a 2-0 re-
But Purdue must travel to Ev-
anston to meet Northwestern, still
determined to win their first Big
Ten title since 1'936. Since every
game on the Wildcat schedule is
a "must" game, the Boilermakers
will be in for a battle.
Quarterback Maurie Daigneau is
establishing himself as the con-
ference's premiere passer. Last
week, he passed for 256 yards in
a 28-3 victory over Iowa. Along
with this potent arm, Northwest-
ern boasts a fine ground game
led by Al Robinson and Randy
The versatility of the Wildcat
offense has resulted in three
straight victories over Syracuse,
Wisconsin, and Iowa.

defensive secondary, headed by
Eric Hutchinson and Jim Ander-
son, to be "the best in the coun-

EVERYONE seems to be running from giant Wilt Chamberlain.
Wilt snared one of his numerous rebounds last night against De-
troit as the Pistons move on the defense. Don't let the scoreboard
deceive you; Detroit lost 132-103.

tor in a passing duel between
Daigneau and Purdue's Gary Dan-'
ielson; all that is now forgotten.
Danielson, a product of Dear-
born Divine Child, suffered a
shoulder separation last week and
will be lost to Purdue for two to
three weeks. Danielson had em-
erged this season as a talented
field general and field leader.
Last week against Minnesota,
he was 17 yards short of the Big
Ten single-game passing record
and 31 yards shy of the confer-
ence single-game total offer se
mark. Had he not sustained the
injury, Danielson would have
broken both records.
The quarterbacking duties now
fall to sophomore Steve Burke who
has had only limited action. If
Burke does not move the offense,
sophomore Bob Bobrowski will try
his luck.
The offense should be able to
move itself. Purdue has the fourth
leading rusher in the Big Ten in
one 'Otis Armstrong. The Boiler-
makers also have a fine pairof
receivers in Darryl Stingley and
Rick Sayers.
The Purdue defense has been
stingy against the rush but the
pass defense leaves a lot to be de-
sired. Daigneau should have a
field day as Purdue has allowed on
the average of 230 yards in the
Pity poor Woody Hayes! Any-
one with a heart must feel sorry
for Woody. The Buckeyes have
lost the services of ninehstarters.
Notable are fullback John Bled-

news. Quarterback Don Lamka

Though the injuries have hit
hard, Ohio State's schedule is soft.
Today's opponent, Indiana, has
been erractic to say the least.
The Buckeye offense is led by
Lamka, halfbacks Rick Galbos
and Morris Bradshaw. Despite all
the injuries the Buckeyes display
fine depth with numerous sopho-
mores and non-lettermen getting
lots of playing time.
Indiana also has an injury jinx.

to cool.
The Hoosiers keep losing wide re-
ceivers; the latest being Charlie
Byrnes. Byrnes caught eight pass-
es for 113 yards against Wiscon-
sin Saturday.
Byrnes was coming out of the
library last Sunday night when
he stepped in a hole and sprained
his ankle. Byrnes joins fellow re-
ceivers Terry Woodburn, Steve
Porter, and Glen Scolnick, all of
whom are on the sidelines.
Gone are the days of Harry
Gonso and Jade Butcher. Coach
John Pont has watched his team
go from riches to rags. The of-
fense has faltered until last week
when quarterback Ted'McNulty,
making his first start of the sea-
son, revived a sagging aerial at-
tack. His connections with rookie

Bloomington fans of the old Gon-
so-Butcher combination.
The Indiana defense was su-

Michigan State has played well
in its last two games even though
both wound up as losses. Spartan
coach Duffy Daugherty has found
a quarterback; a good one in
Frank Kolch. Kolch stands 6-5,
220, and runs the newly - found
Spartan option extremely well.
Kolch has a superlative receiver
in tight end Billy Joe Dupree.
The major disappointment in
Michigan State's running attack
has been speedster Eric Allen. Al-
len has failed to gain needed
yardage and is one of the major
factors for the sputtering Spartan
running game, ranked ninth in
the conference.
The Spartan defense ranks
among the best in the Big Ten.
Ron Curl, an All-American can-
didate, and Brad Van Pelt, a
three-letter man, head up a stub-
born pack.
Wisconsin, State's opponents,
have the conference's top runner,
Rufus "Roadrunner" Ferguson. He
has rushed for 537 yards while
teammate Al Hannah leads all re-
ceivers with 25 catches. The Bad-
gers quarterback is Neil Graff and
he will test the vaunted Spartan

DETROIT - The Los Angeles
Lakers made their new coach Bill
Sharman's debut a winner as the
well-balanced Lakers surged to a
132-103 National Basketball Asso-
ciation victory over the Detroit
Pistons last night.

Jerry West with 19 and Jim Mac-
Millian with 25.

Pistons 26-20 in the first quarter
and then pulled away to a 16-point
lead at the half 63-47. Of MacMil-
lian's total, 15 came in the second
Bob Lanier topped the Pistons

point in the second half.
Meanwhile at Ann Arbor, doctors
at University of Michigan Hospital
said that surgery yesterday to re-
pair a detached retina in National
Basketball Association All - Star
Dave Bing's right eye apparently
~was a success.
But Dr. Morton S. Cox Jr. said
it will be two or three days before
it is known whether the repair will
hold and perhaps several months

until it can be determined whether

guard suffered the injury in an

CHICAGO - Bob Love scored
nine straight points early in the

time in a National Basketball As-

falo lost its season opener to
Seattle by 33 points.
Rookie Charlie Davis, who scored
all eight Cavaliers points in the
overtime session, put Cleveland on
top 107-105 with two minutes left
on his third field goal, but Haz-
zard hit a 12-footer 15 seconds
later and then Bill Hosket put in
a missed free throw by Hazzard
to give the Braves a 109-107 lead
they never lost.
Cleveland missed a chance to tie
the score when John Johnson
missed a shot as time ran out.
Hazzard hit 15 of 24 from the
field while 6-foot-11 rookie Elmore
Smith corralled 18 rebounds for
the Braves. Johnson had 22, Bingo

BOSTON-Jeff Mullins scored 28
points in leading the Golden State
Warriors to a 97-75 victory over
the Boston Celtics last night in a
National Basketball Association
season opener.
Golden State took a 43-37 half-
time lead, then hiked the margin
