NEW YORK - Ron Cey, Steve
Yeager and Reggie Smith rocked a
rusty Catfish Hunter for huge home
runs, and the explosion of Los
Angeles power backed Burt Hooton's
five-hit pitching for a 6-1 victory over
the New York Yankees in last night's
second game of the 1977 World
The Dodger victory, constructed
around the home runs and Hooton's
baffling knuckle-curve, tied the best-
of-seven series at 1-1 with the next
three games scheduled for Los An-
geles beginning Friday night.
n The Dodgers, who led the National
e League with 191 home runs, made
fast work of Hunter, shelling the
Yankee starter for five runs in just
22/3 innings.
All of the runs came on homers -

sdugs I
two-run shots by Ron Cey in the first
inning and Reggie Smith in the third,
sandwiching Steve Yeager's solo
blast in the second.
Cey connected on an 0-2 pitch after
Smith had doubled with two out in the
first. Yeager reached the left field
seats after Hunter retired the first
two batters in the second, and Smith
followed Bill Russell's single with the
third Dodger homer, making it 5-0
and finishing Hunter in the third.
Dick Tidrow relieved for New York.
Hooton, meanwhile, c r u i s e d
through the Yankee lineup, allowing
only one hit through the first three
innings and striking out six batters.
The Dodgers wasted an opportun-

ity to add to their lead in the fourth.
when singles by Rick Monday and
Yeager gave them men on first and
third with two out. But Hooton
missed the ball on a suicide squeeze
play and Monday was run down and
tagged out. Then Hooton struck out,
ending the inning.
The Yankees got on the scoreboard
in the fourth when Randolph and
Munson opened with singles. Ran-
dolph scored from third when Reggie
Jackson tapped into a double play.
Steve Garvey climaxed the home
run onslaught with a solo shot in the
ninth off Yankees relief ace Sparky

RON CEY'S two-run home run in the first inning of the second game of the World Series wins appreciation from
teammates Steve Garvey and Reggie Smith. Smith and catcher Steve Yeager added their own blasts over th
outfield fence to power the Dodgers to a 6-1 victory over New York, evening the Series at one game apiece.


Blue claims




In a game which saw more players'
leave the field, because of injuries, than'
goals scored (one which never went in
the net), the Michigan Soccer Club
prevailed over the University of Toledo,
3-1 last night.
During the hard fought game, six
players had to leave the field, with only
half of them returning for further ac-
tion. With about twelve minutes re-
maining in the game, three players'
were shook up on the same play.
The incident occurred when
Michigan's forward Ihor Fedorowycz
collided with the Toledo goalie and a
defenseman, while they all converged
on a bouncing ball.
TOLEDO'S GOALIE, Wes Breining-
er, had to.come out, and did not play the
rest of the game. Fedorowycz, although]
shaken, was able to return to action.
Fedorowycz scored Michigan's first
goal about ten minutes into the game,
with a nifty scissors kick (with the back
to the goal, leaving the ground to kick
the ball over the head into the goal).

Michigan had a number of good
chances after the first goal, but failed to
add to its lead in the first half.
Matt, Donnelly, who replaced
Breininger in the Toledo goal, played a
good game, stopping a number of hard
ONLY SIX MINUTES into the second
half, Pee Shaw put Michigan ahead 2-0,
booting he ball past Donnelly.
Donnelly made a number of lunging
saves against the pressing Michigan of-
fense. Michigan controlled the ball
most of the second half.
Dave Ritchie put Michigan comfor-
tably ahead 3-0, by kicking the ball past
the wandering Donnelly, with only ten
minutes left in the game.
Toledo "scored" its lone goal on a
free kick with less than five minutes to
play. The kick, apparently sailing over
the Michigan goal and getting caught in
the net, was called a goal by the
Mathews, who played an excellent
game in goal, was obviously disappoin-

ted at the "loss" of his shutout.
The game, for the most part played
cleanly, was quite physical throughout
the night, as shown by the high number
of injuries.
The victory put Michigan's season
record at 6-2. The Soccer Club faces
tough Spring Arbor this Saturday at
7:30 on Tartan Turf field.

4aving nothing better to do, Kent RenCenter wandered over to the Michigan
)aily. There, in the halls, he saw many, many people writing feverishly.
"Golly," exclaimed candid Kent out loud. "I wonder what all these people are
loing here."
Rick Drydock, resident Yankee fan and all-around good egg, overheard Kent's
uery and just for the heck of it, decided to answer him.
"These people," expounded the "Mad Dock," "are filling out their Gridde
icks due no later than Friday at midnight."
#What's a Gridde?" asked Kent Candid.
"What's a Gridde?" repeated the Dock.
"'That's what I asked," said candid Candid.
,'A Gridde," explained Tricky Rick, "is a contest the Daily holds to see who
n pick the most games right of the twenty they picked for us to prognosticate."
"What do you get if you have the best score?" countered Kent Kent.
"A Pizza Bob's small pizza with two items and a great deal of pride," deemed
SSounds good to me," Candid Kent Candid claimed.
