MAJOR LEAGUE ROUNDUP
Twins pound hapless A's, 13-2

BLOOMINGTON, Minn.-Ron
Jackson drove in four runs, and seven
other Twins had at least on RBI as the
Minnesota Twins routed the Oakland
A's 13-2 yesterday afternoon.
Jackson slammed a two-run homer in
the eighth inning, his eighth of the year,
after delivering a two-run single in the
fourth, when the Twins scored four
times to break open a 5-2 game.
Winner Paul Hartzell, 2-4, scattered
12 hits. Rick Langford, 1-8, was the
loser. Langford allowed a single and a
walk to the first two batters in the first
inning before being taken out with a
muscle strain.
Winfield wins it
SAN DIEGO-Dave Winfield hit a
two-run homer, his 11th of the year, and
Gene Richards drove in San Diego's
other run with a single as the
Padres defeated the Atlanta
Braves 3-1 yesterday for their fifth
straight victory.
Eric Rasmussen, 2-5, went the first
seven innings, giving up just four hits.
Rollie fingers worked the final two in-
nings without allowing a hit, to pick up
his eighth save. Fingers fanned Jerry
Royster in the eighth to record his 1,000
career strikeout.
Complete zilch for Phils
MONTREAL-Scott Sanderson

Cromartie's first-inning sacrifice fly

11-year existence that they hurled three
consecutive shutouts.
Keith and George show
ST LOUIS-Keith Hernandez ham-
mered a three-run homer in the first in-

with a towering solo blast, sparking a
17-hit attack that powered the St. Louis
Cardinals to a 9-6 triumph over the New
York Mets yesterday.

Henrandez' homer, his fifth of the
season, and Hendrick's blast, his four-

Dodgers outlast Giants
LOS' ANGELES-Steve Garvey
slugged a homer, double and single and
drove in four runs and Dave Lopes
collected three doubles as the Los
Angeles Dodgers outlaster San Fran-
cisco 12-10 yesterday, handing the
Giants their sixth consecutive setback.

The Dodgers, reaching the .500 level
by sweeping the three-game series
from the Giants, erupted for seven runs
in the fourth inning for a 10-4 lead, then
withstood a five-run San Francisco
seventh.
Johnnie LeMaster drove in three of
San Francisco's runs, including two in
the seventh, when the Giants chased
starter Don Sutton, 6-4, who got the win
although he was charged with nine runs
on 13 hits. Vida Blue, 6-6, was the loser.
He was knocked out in the fourth inning
after giving up nine runs on eight hits.

MORALES' HR THE DIFFERENCE:
Tigers' 1-0 win is Pat

TORONTO (AP)-Pat Underwood of
the Detroit Tigers pitched 8113 innings of
three-hit ball in his major league debut
last night to outduel his older brother,
Tom, and beat the Toronto Blue Jays, 1-
0.
Pat 22, allowed a leadoff double by
Rico Carty in the fifth inning and a
single by Dan Ainge in the eighth, then
was replaced by Dave Tobik after
Alfredo Griffin hit a one-out double in
the ninth. John Hiller got the final out to

earn his fourth save. Pat had four
strikeouts and walked just one batter.
The 25-year-old Tom Underwood, 0-7,
allowed just six hits, walked two bat-
ters and struck out six. But Jerry
Morales jumped on his first pitch of the
eighth inning and sent his fourth home
run of the year over the left-center field
wall.

The game was attended by the pit-
chers' mother, Helen, flown up by the
Blue Jays from her home in Kokomo,
Ind., for the occasion.
The victory was the Tigers' sixth in a
row and moved them above the .500
mark for the first time since April 22.
The loss was a fifth ina row for the Blue
Jays.

Prep giant Sampson
headed for Virginia
HARRISONBURG, Va. (AP)-Ralph Sampson, the 7-foot-3 high school
star many college coaches have called a basketball franchise, ended months
of suspense last night by announcing he would attend the University of
Virginia.
But Sampson, who said he finally chose between Virginia and Kentucky
and "changed my mind at least 50 times" before making his decision Thur-
sday, did not sign a grant-in-aid and said he might not do so for a couple of
days.
"Right now I'm going to the University of Virginia," Sampson said in a
statement which some believed might leave the door open for him to change
his mind, although he said he had no such intention.
"I have a letter of intention to Virginia. If I have any doubt and change
my mind, it will be Kentucky," Sampson said.
Sampson said he plans to turn professional in a couple of years and all
the schools involved in recruiting him knew it.

Jerry Morales - mmemnammmm mmmnems mmsaase

Cliff Johnson of the Yankees
demonstrated the wrong way to get
on the good side of an umpire Wed-
nesday night when he collided with
home plate umpire Lou DiMuro.
Coming home with a run against the
Brewers, Johnson ran full tilt into
DiMuro, who was crouched in the
batter's box watching the play. Both
Johnson and DiMuro were taken to
the hospital for x-rays, which proved
negative. DiMuro suffered a bruised
spine and Johnson a bruised elbow.
