DETROIT (U) - Detroit Man-
ager Billy Martin is hoping the
incident which led to the sus- l
pension of.Oakland shortstop Bert
Campaneris will provide the I
spark the Tigers need.
"I think it put a little fuel
there," the fiery Detroit skipper
declared, before adding, "I'll
let you know after tomorrow."
The A's and Tigers resume
their American League playoff
series today at, Tiger Stadium,
with Oakland holding a 2-0 ad-
vantage in the best-of-five series.I
A pair of 19-game winners, Ken
Holtzman of Oakland and Joe
Coleman of Detroit, are sched-
uled to be the starting pitchers.
But Oakland will be without
Campaneris, their star shortstop,
who was suspended yesterday by
American League President Joe
Cronin for throwing his bat at
Tiger relief pitcher Lerrin La-
After a pitch from LaGrow hit
the speedy Campaneris on the
ankle, the shortstop threw his
bat at the Detroit pitcher. La-
Grow ducked, and the bat sailed
over his head and to the side.
Home plate umpire Nestor
Chylak ejected both LaGrow and
Campaneris, then three umpires
had to restrain a furious Martin,
who stormed out to the plate to
protest Chylak's decision.
Yesterday, Martin had second
thoughts on the incident.
"Chylak did the right thing,
now that I look at it," he said.
"But at the time, I didn't think
Campaneris flew to Detroit but
later returned to Oakland. A's
Manager Dick Williams said
Campy has a very badly swollen ,
ankle, although X-rays show no
fracture, and he decided before
the suspension against playing
him. Dal Maxvill is expected to
take his place.,
Oakland's plane was delayed
more than an hour Sunday night
due to a bomb threat, but it
wasn't determined if the threat
had anything to do with the bat
The Tigers and Athletics bat-
tled in a free-for-all during a
game late in the season after an
inside pitch by Bill Slayback
nearly hit Angel Mangual in :he
But Martin insists, "I don't
think there is any running feud
with Oakland. There are several
of their players I like."
Williams received a copy of
the suspension letter during the
A's workout yesterday and said,
"I think the notice from Mr.
Cronin is self explanatory, other
than that, I have no comment to
Cronin was at Oakland and saw
the bat-throwing by Campy. In
the suspension letter he said,
"such actions cannot and will
not be tolerated."
The Tigers, meanwhile, will
also be without their regular
FINALLY BREAK EVEN
Fumbles plague Big Ten action
shortstop, as Eddie Brinkman
suffered a back injury.
Brinkman, who didn't miss a
game this year until Sunday, has
a possible slipped disc. He was
X-rayed yesterday and likely will
not play in any more post-season
Martin said he asked Cronin
for permission to put Frank
Howard on the playoff roster,
but the request was denied. The
Tigers didn't obtain Howard from
the Texas Rangers until Septem-
ber-too late for him to qualify
for the playoffs. "Cronin says I
have to replace a shortstop with
a shortstop," Martin noted. "I've
got two names I'm considering,
but I won't say who they are at
He also would not divulge his
lineup for today.
Williams announced his batting
order, with Matty Alou the lead-
off man in place of Campaneris,
Maxvill batting second, followed
by Joe Rudi, Reggie Jackson,
Mike Epstein, Sal Bando,. Gene
Tenace, Dick Green and Holtz-
"I certainly hope we can take
it in three," Williams said. "it
wouldn't have been advisable to
say at the start that we could
win in three, but it's okay now.
We're prepared to fly out after
the game when we win it."
"We've always risen up to the
situation before," countered Mar-
tin, "and we can do it again."

Big Ten football teams fumbled
their way to their finest showing
of the 1972 season against non-
conference foes. They were able
to run off with victories in half
of the s i x inter-conference
Fumblitis was a big factor in
determining the outcome of the
majority of contests. "If I can
discover a cure for fumbling,"
said Minnesota Coach Cal Stoll,
"I'd can it, quit coaching and
become a millionaire."
Stoll was referring to the clash
between Minnesota and Kansas
which epitomized how difficult it
was to hang onto the ball Satur-
day. The Gophers combined with
Kansas to jar the ball loose from
each other 13 times. Minnesota
fumbled eight of those times and
only recovered four as they lost
34-28. Minnesota converted three
Kansas fumbles into touchdowns,
but an offensive interference call
eventually decided the game.
KANSAS COACH Don Farm-
brough, the winner, seemed to
accept the fumbles matter of
factly, "Fumbles are a part of
football and there is no drill you
can devise for that." Whether
his response would have been ,he
same if the final score had been
reversed is debatable.
Illinois and Penn State played
a game of fumbles with Penn
State finally getting their offense
together to beat the Illini, 35-7.
"I was afraid they would put it
all together," said Illini Coach
Bob Blackman. "I would have
to agree with what everybody is
saying. We were poorly coach-
ed." Illinois was overwhelmed by
Penn State's duo of John Huf-
nagel and John Cappelletti. Huf-
nagel passed and ran the Nittany
Lions to touchdowns and Cappel-
letti scored on a 53 yard run.
OHIO STATE'S triumph over
California was one of the few
games not marred by slippery
hands. Buckeye halfback Archie,
Griffin, last week a sensation as
Big Ten player of the week, was

limited to 33 yards in 13 carries.
However, fullback Harold Hen-
son picked up the slack, scoring
three touchdowns, in the 38-18
If luck had been with Michigan
State they may have pulled off
the upset of the week. But that's
not the way the ball bounced.
The Spartans caused the Irish to
fumble five times, but only once
were the Spartans able to fall
on it as Notre Dame won the
Fumbles were also prevalent
in Indiana's 10-2 victory over
Syracuse Saturday. Ken Starling
rambled 23 yards for the only
touchdown of the game.
' In conference play the ability
to drop the ball was not lost.
Purdue committed six fumbles,
but recovered two of Iowa's mis-
cues to shut out the Hawkeyes,
victory over Northwestern, along
with the Buckeyes' game, was
hurt less by fumbles than the
others. The Badgers, once again
were led by star running back
Rufus "meep meep" Ferguson
as he gained 197 yards in 24 at-
tempts and scored two touch-
downs. Wisconsin overcame a
14-0 deficit to win 21-14.
NOW THE BIG TEN can turn
inwards to the safety of confer-
ence play, where each week it
can do no worse than break
even. The split Saturday gave
the Big Ten an overall 11-16
record for games with teams
from other parts of the country.
For the next seven weeks Big
Ten teams will fight ,,it out for
the right to take on the Pac-8
champions in the Rose Bowl.
And as has been proved in the
past, anything can happen in the
Rose Bowl. The Big Ten repre-
sentative might even win for the
first time since 1969.
Once again it looks like it's
going to go right down to that
final Saturday in Columbus, when
the Wolverines take on the Buck-
eyes. Along with these two
teams, however, are Wisconsin,
Purdue, Michigan State and In-
diana all of whom have 1-0 con-
ference records. Of these teams
only Wisconsin and Michigan
State seem to be a threat to the
conference domination of Mich-
igan and Ohio State.
