Blue splits opening twinbil


A clutch base hit by senior Scott
Anderson and some fireballing relief
pitching by junior Tom Owens gave the
Michigan Wolverines a 4-1 victory
yesterday, salvaging a split in the long-
awaited season-opening doubleheader
with Bowling Green.
The effects of the long layoff (26 days
without a game) were painfully ob-
vious, as Michigan managed only seven
hits in the two games, including just
three off Falcon Terry Milton in the fir-
st game, which Bowling Green won 5-1.
"I've got one quote for you," said
Michigan coach Moby Benedict with a
laugh, "It's great to be playing."
Sophomore lefthander Steve Howe
pitchedthe first game for Michigan and
allowed 10 hits and four earned runs,
despite striking out eight Falcons.
Bowling Green scored first in the
second inning before there were any,
outs. A single by rightfielder Jim Dyer
(his first of three in the game) and a
walk to Kevin Glasspoole put men at
first and second. Catcher Jeff Lee then
doubled to left center for one run, and
first baseman Ron Ritticher singled in
two more on a bouncer up the middle
just out of the diving reach of Michigan
shortstop Jim Berra.
The Falcons also added single runs in
the third and fourth innings to post a 5-0
lead. Meanwhile, Michigan had

managed just one hit off of Bowling
Green's Milton in the first five innings.
The Wolverines finally broke through in
the sixth when with two outs George

day," said Benedict.
The second game didn't start out to
be much more promising than the first,
as the Falcons jumped on lefty Craig
McGinnis for a run in the first before
he'd gotten anybody out.
Shortstop Chuck Black drew a walk to
open the game and scored when Jim
Selgo blasted a one-hop shot off the wall
in left center for a double. But McGin-
nis settled down quickly and retired the
next three batters.
Michigan got on the board in the
second when Anderson, the senior from
Ann Arbor Pioneer High School, lined a
single to left scoring Berra, who had
also singled and advanced on a walk
and a force play.
The 1-1 tie was short-lived though, as
Foussianes blasted a wrong-field
homer through the chilly air over the
scoreboard in right field..
The one-run lead seemed precarious
as the Falcons threatened in every in-
ning. In the sixth, Benedict replaced
McGinnis with righthanded Tom
Owens, as McGinnis had developed a
h ister on the middle finger of his pit-
ching hand.
Owens apparently decided the best
way to warm up the crowd was to bring
on all the heat he could muster. After
walking Groth to lead off the sixth,
Owens blew third strikes by Shane andr
Jim Dyer and got designated hitter
John Mitchell to line out to center.

the benefit of a hit in the bottom half of
the inning before anyone was out.
Catcher Jim Capoferi walked to start
the inning, and Falcon pitcher Chris
Dill ifired Jim Berra's sacrifice bunt in-
to centerfield, trying to force Capoferi.
A walk to Dan Cooperrider loaded the
bases, but when centerfielder John
Mceldowney bounced into a double-
play, erasing Berra on a force at home
and getting McEldowney at first, the
threat looked less promising.
But Anderson lined a clutch single to
left field to score one run, and when the
ball eluded the charging Mark Shane,
Cooperrider came around to score and
Anderson went all the way to third:
That pushed Michigan's margin to 4-
1, and Owens protected it in fine
fashion, retiring the side in order and
finishing with a flourish by striking out

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP)-Hubert Green

his crouched and curious putting stance

season, fired the best round of the tour-

That was 10-under-par for the gently
rolling :hills of Augusta National and
three strokes better than Tom Watson,
the gritty defending champion who had
to rally for a hard-earned 68 that in-
cluded seven birdies and three bogeys.

"I'VE HAD SOME very frustrating

days putting-and this was one of
them," Niclaus said. "I just couldn't
get the ball in the hole."
He finished with a 69 that left him at
212, eight strokes off the pace.
Low-key veteran Rod Funseth, who
started the day in a tie with Lee Trevino

three of his first four holes and gained
the lead alone when Trevino was having
his problems.

Kenyan sets record

By the Associated Press
BERKELEY, Cal.-Kenyan distance
runner Henry hono, a sophomore at
Washington State University, set a
world record of 13 minutes, 8.4 seconds
in winning the 5,000-meter race yester-
day in a triangular meet at the Univer-
sity of California's Edwards Stadium.
Rono covered the final 400 meters in
59.6 seconds, unofficially, in breaking
the world mark of 13:12.9 established
last July at Stockholm by New
Zealand's Dick Quax.
Two of Rono's teammates, also from
Kenya, finished behind him in Satur-
day's race, but Rono was far ahead of
the field by the halfway point. The
public address announcer kept him
aware of his progress as he challenged
the record on the sunny and warm day.
Rono was named to his country's
Olympic team in 1976, but did not com-
pete at Montreal because of the African
nations' boycott of the Games. At
Washington State, he has won two con-
secutive NCAA cross country titles.

tsburgh Pirates to nab a 4-3 victory

bottom of the ninth inning, boosted the
New York Mets to a 6-5 victory over the
Montreal Expos, while Jim Barr fired a
seven-hitter to lead the San Francisco
Giants to a 6-0 victory over the San
Diego Padres.
In the American League, Chet
Lemon's game-tying double highlighted
