WASHINGTON -- The University of Maryland promised Vir-
ginia high school basketball star Moses Malone help in obtaining
a $1 million insurance policy against injury as one means of per-
suading him to sign a grant-ia-aid, the Washington Star-News
Malone, a 6-foot-11 standout for Petersburg High School who
was the most heavily recruited player in the nation, announced
Thursday morning he would attend Maryland.
Star-News sports writer Morris Siegel said in a column
yesterday that Malone had demanded to be insured for $1 mil-
lion against injuries for the time he is at Maryland, as pro-
tection for a subsequent professional career.
Siegel said the university agreed to arrange a loan for Malone
so he may pay premiums on such a policy, estimated by Lloyd's
of London at between $5,000 and $10,000 a year.

NEW YORK -Pinch-hit-
ter Willie Horton greeted
reliever Sparky Lyle with a
two-out game-tying single
in the ninth inning and a
second run followed on a
throwing e r r o r by center
fielder Elliott Maddox, lift-
ing the Detroit Tigers and
Mickey Lolich to a 3-2 vic-
tory over the New York
Yankees last night.
Cecil Upshaw, 0-4, who bailed
starter Pat Dobson out of a
seventh-inning jam, had the first
six batters he faced when Jim
Northrup singled with two out
in the ninth and Bill Freehan
Lyle came on and Horton,
batting for BenOglivie, ripped
a single to center, scoring
Northrup. Freehan also scored
when Maddox' throw to third
hit third baseman Graig Nettles
and bounced away.
The Tigers nicked Dobson for
an unearned run in the second
inning. Ben Oglivie, leading off,
reached second when shortstop
Jim Mason collided with Lou
Piniella as the left fielder was
about to catch Oglivie's fly ball
and it dropped for a two-base
error. Aurelio Rodriguez singled
Lolich, 9-7, had retired 10
consecutive batters when Bobby
Murcer looped a single to left
with one out in the fourth. He
was forced by Thurman Mun-
son, but Bill Sudakis cracked
his sixth home run of the sea-
son for a 2-1 New York lead.
Lolich held the Yankees to
five hits in pitching his 10th
consecutive complete game and
his fourth straight triumph.
PHILADELPHIA - John Mil-
ner hammered two home runs
and Rusty Staub hit one last
night to lead the New York
Mets to a 3-1 victory over the
Tom Seaver, 4-6, gained his
first victory since June 1 but
had to leave after five innings
becatse of a sore left hip. He
allowed two hits, struck out
three, walked two and survived
five Mets' errors.
Bob Miller took over, then
gave way in the ninth to Tug
McGraw, who gave up Bill
Robinson's i n f i e I d hit that
scored the Phils' lone run.
Milner broke up a scoreless
battle between Seaver and Steve
Carlton, 9-S, in the fourth in-
ning when he smashed a 3-2
pitch into the right field seats.
In the sixth, Milner again
worked a full count and ripped
his 11th homer of the season
into the Phillies' bitloen in
right. Staub hit his 10th homer
of the year in the eighth inning
off reliever Mac Scarce.
MILWAUKEE - Light-hitting
Tim Johnson's two-run single
capped a three-run third inning
uprising and the Milwaukee
Brewers beat the Baltimore
Orioles 8-6 last night.
The rally, which gave the
Brewers a 6-5 lead, chased Bal-
timore starter Mike Cuellar.
But his nine - game winning
streak remained intact.
The defeat was charged to re-
liever Wayne Garland, 1-. Dave
May scored what proved to be
the winning run on a wild pitch
in the seventh, and Darrell Por-
ter homered in the eighth.
HAPPY MANNY SANGUILLEN (diving) of the Pittsburgh Pirates wandered a little too far off the bag for comfort in yesterday
afternoon's game at Wrigley Field against the Cubs. Andre Thorn ton, one of ten rookies currently on the Cub roster takes the
throw from pitcher Steve Stone. Sanguillen was safe but the North Siders triumphed, 3-2.
Stanford w s title; MrALea
Michigan takes third
Special To The Daily
LOS ANGELES-The faintly glimmering hopes
of the Michigan tennis team for further advance-
ment in the National Collegiate Athletic Associa-
tion Tennis Tournament were extinguished yes-
W terday as the Wolverines' last remaining com-
petitors, the doubles team of Peter Fleming and
Freddie De Jesus, were defeated in the quarter-
finals by DeArmand Briggs and Rand Evitt of
Arizona, 7-6, 4-6, 6-4.
Michigan thus concluded its best showing since
they captured the national crown in 1957 with a
fine third place standing. Only Stanford with 26
points, and host school Southern California, with
23, beat the Wolverines,
STANFORD HAD clinched the title earlier in
the day when Cardinal netters, Chico Hagey and
John Whitlinger each won their semi-final singles
The unseeded iaaev. a iuinr from La Jnlla,
Calif., who two months ago didn't even make
Stanford's six-man team, beat another unseeded
feated Southern Cal's seventh-seeded Sashi Men-
on, 6-3, 7-5, 1-6, 7-5.
Whitlinger will team with Jim Delaney in the
doubles final today also, having advanced to the
finals yesterday with a semi-final victory. They
will play Menon and John Andrews of Southern
Cal, who reached the final by defeating the
Arizona duo in their semi-final.
BUT ONLY individual honors will be on the
line today as Stanford is assured of its 27th point
because two Cardinals are meeting in the singles
finals. Even if Southern Cal wins the doubles, the
Trojans will finish with 26.
Michigan's top players, Victor Amaya and De
Jesus were named to the All-American team yes-
terday as Michigan's most successful season in
17 years concluded in Los Angeles. Every other
top-ranked team is from a warm-weather cli-
mate except Michigan and the Wolverines came
