Amaya falls in NCAA tennis;

Michigan ties for sixth

By MARC FELDMAN
Special To The Daily
PRINCETON, N.J.-The power-
ful California contingents from
Stanford, Southern California,
and UCLA dominated the fifth
round and quarter-final play yes-
terday in the 89th annual NCAA
tennis championships here.
Victor Amaya of Michigan won
his fifth round match with Hous-
ton's Dale Ogden in the morning
session to gain the quarterst
Amaya was the only player east
of the Sierra Nevadas to advance
this far and Michigan's last hope
in the singles competition before
being erased in the round of
eight by UCLA's flashy Bob
Kreiss, 6-4, 6-4.
Amaya, the number six seed,
matched up with fourth-ranked
Kreiss, and the Wolverine, tow-
ering ten inches over his dimi-
nitive opponent, fell to the con-
sistent, intelligent game of the
Bruin in straight sets.
Three top California teams
grabbed the other seven spots in
the quarter-finals, including a re-
markube three each by the Tro-
jans and Cardinals.
The other three quarter-finals
matches sent USC netters against
Stanford opponents in crucial in-
dividual and team competition.
The Trojans and Cardinals were
neck and neck with UCLA in the
team standings and the Cards
took two of the three to forge
into the lead.
Stanford leads the competition
with 28 points and USC is second
with 26 followed by UCLA with
25. Michigan finished with 14
points in a sixth place tie just
one point behind Houston and
SMU who tied for the fourth spot
with 18 apiece. Last year, the
Wolverines swere a distant
again
ing of Ken Forsch with a 14-hit
attack against Bill Greif, Mike
Corkins, Bob Miller and Gary
Ross.
May, who entered the game
with only six home runs, hit a
solo homer in the second and
two-run shots in the seventh and
ninth.
San Diego outfielder Dave Win-
field, drafted two weeks ago out
of the University of Minnesota,
had three of the Padres' hits,
singles in the second and seventh
innings and a bases-empty homer
in the fifth, the first homer of
his pro career and his third run
batted in in as many major
league games. Since joining the
Padres, Winfield has collected
five hits in nine at-bats
Gibson glows
ST. LOUIS-Veteran Bob Gib-
son threw an eight-hitter and
slammed his 23rd career home
run in leading the St. Louis
Cardinals to a 4-3 victory over
the Montreal Expos yesterday.
Lou Brock's double and Tim
McCarver's second home run
gave the Cardinals a 2-0 lead in
the opening inning against Expos.
right-hander Bill Stoneman, 1-4.

spot
eighteenth with just five points
and their improvement to sixth
- with 14 was by far the most pro-
lific in the entire field.
Alex "Sandy" Meyer, Stan-
ford's top-seeded player from
nearby ~ Wayne, N.J., defeated
fifth-seeded John A n d r e w s in
straight sets and will meet Kreiss
in one of today's semi-finals.
Raul Ramirez, the Mexican
Davis Cupper who defeated Mich-
igan's Eric Friedler in an earlier
r o u n d, advanced by soundly
thrashing Steve Deleney of Stan-
ford. The second-seeded Trojan
will meet another Stanford ace,
surprising number 14 seed John
Fisher, in the other semi this
afternoon.
In the morning round of 16,
Amaya rebounded from a slow
start to beat Ogden, 4-6, 6-1, 6-2.
Ogden had pulled an upset in the
fourth round when he defeated
15th ranked Mike Machette of
USC.
Ogden was surprisingly tough
in the first set as he jumped out
to a 5-2 lead and held on to win
6-4. Amaya won two of the first
three games but Ogden played
almost perfectly tin the next four,
holding his service twice and
breaking Amaya an equal num-
ber of times.
After losing the first, Amaya
came on like gangbusters in the
second and third sets and got his
powerful serve on the beam and
improved his footwork.
The match began on the beau-
tiful outdoor courts of Princeton
University but more rain, which
has plagued the tournament all
week, forced the action indoors
in the middle of the third set
of the Amaya-Ogden match. Iron-
ically many of the players, in-
cluding Amaya, prefer the faster
surfaces of the Jadwin Gym in-
door courts to the outdoor
variety.
Kreiss presented quite a con-
trast in style as well as size to
the 6-6 Amaya. The Bruin relied
on his speed, sharp placement,
and a tremendous array on spins
Ao keep A m a y a off-balance.
Kreiss hit his serves with about
half the velocity of Amaya's but
his top-spin had Amaya return-
ing the ball into the net.
The match itself was closely
played as the 6-4 scores in both
sets indicate. Amaya lost his
service in the first game of the
match but he returned the favor
in the eight game by breaking
Kreiss with a beautiful backhand
down the line.
Amaya served the ninth game
with a chance to go ahead but
Kreiss took just five volleys to
record another break. Kreiss held
service in the following game for
the set victory. Amaya was un-
able to break his Bruin opponent
in the second set and Kreiss'
fifth game break was enough for
him to win the decisive set by
the same 6-4 score.
Amaya teamed with Fred De-
Jesus last night in the fourth
round of doubles against the
third-seeded tandem of Meyer-
Deleney of Stanford. Amaya and
the two Cardinals were each play-
ing their third match of the day
and Stanford won a long, gruel-
ing encounter 6-4, 6-7, 6-1 to end
Michigan's NCAA competition for
1973.

YANKS WIN IN RAIN
Fading igers ose

By The Associated Press
NEW YORK-Thurman Munson
and Felipe Alou tagged Detroit
ace Mickey Lolich for two-run
homers last night, helping the
New York Yankees to a 5-1 vic-
tory over the Tigers in a game
called by rain after six innings.
It was the fourth straight vic-
tory for the Yankees, leaders of
the American League's East Di-
vision, and the third consecutive
loss for the Tigers, who trail by
three games. .
Pat Dobson spaced five hits to
earn the victory, his second in
three d e c i s i o n s since being
acquired from Atlanta earlier

this month.
The Tigers struck first with
Norm Cash belting his ninth
home run of the year with one
out in the second inning. But the
Yankees b o u n c e d right back
against Lolich, 7-7.
Graig Nettles singled with two
out in the bottom of the second
and Munson, who hit only seven
home runs all last season, hit his
eighth of the year into the left
field seats. Alou added two more
runs in the fifth with his third
homer of the season following a
single by Munson.
The Yankees added their final
run in the sixth when Matty Alou
ripped a ground rule double to
right and scored on Bobby Mur-
cer's single.
Hendrick homers
MILWAUKEE - George Hen-
drick crashed a two-run home
run, his 10th in 14 games and
fifth in 10 times at bat, and
Buddy Bell and John Ellis added

solo shots to lead the Cleveland
Indians to a 9-1 victory over the
Mttwaukee Brewers yesterday.
Hendrick's 15th homer trigger-
ed a six-run third inning as the
Indians romped to their third
consecutive victory behind Gay-
lord Perry, 7-9, who broke a per-
sonal four game losing streak.
Milwaukee dropped its fourth in
a row after a 10-game winning
streak.
Ellis followed Hendrick's blast
with his fifth homer. After the
Indians filled the bases on a hit
batsman, a double by Dave Dun-
can and an intentional walk, an-

other run scored on a passed ball
and Bell capped the inning with
a two-run single.

SAN DIEGO - Lee May hit
three homers, driving in five
ru n s, while T o m m y Helms
smacked a grand slam and Cesar
Cedeno added a solo shot, power-
ing the Houston Astros to a 12-2
rout of the San Diego Padres
yesterday.
Bob Watson drove-in another
Houston run with a single as the
Astros backed the eight-hit pitch-
