THOUGHTS ON THE PASSING TOURNAMENT SCENE:
After four days of competition, there are some things that stand out as one
watches eight different teams go about the task of winning an NCAA
baseball championship. The level of intensity and determination that got
these teams into the College World Series is still evident but now there seems
to be a change in attitude.
Arizona State has a grim, hollowed-eye look of a team with an obsession.
Though the coaches and players won't say as much, one can almost feel the
pressure that the defending champions must face. All year long the Sun
Devils have been annihilating the opposition, to the point where five or six
players are approaching or have surpassed national records in batsman-
ship.
However, the question still remains in Omaha if ASU can continue to hit
here as it did in the southwest.
That question seems to gnaw at the Sun Devils while at the same time in-
spiring them on to some great performances.
But all one sees after a win, even the 13-2 pasting of St. John's, is deter-
mination and concentration. No smiles, like those that have accompanied
wins by Oral Roberts and Michigan, and seemingly very little satisfaction,
unlike Southern California or North Carolina. The winning pitcher stands off
to the side, with ice applied to the shoulder or elbow and solemnly answers
questions.
Sadly, nothing will seem to be accomplished for the Devils fans and
players unless ASU returns to the championship.
MISERY LOVES COMPANY DEPARTMENT:
If the Wolverines feel embarrassed by their 11-3 trouncing, at the hands of
USC ... they're not alone.
The 1978 edition of the College World Series has been plagued by routs and
laughers. Until the eighth game of the series, when Arizona State nipped
Oral Roberts, 7-6 Sunday night, the closest winning margin between teams
had been Michigan's 4-0 decision over Baylor.
For the rest of the series, the games have been one-sided. Here is a short
recap of the games up to tonight:
Game Number One: Michigan 4, Baylor 0 ... Vic Ray's fifth-inning three
run homer was the big blow as Steve Howe (11-2) one hit the Bears.
Game Number Two: USC 9, Miami (Fl) 3 ... The Hurricanes had played
the Trojans even up for seven innings as Randy Guerra and USC's Bill Bor-
dley and Mark Hayes dueled away. However, Doug Stokke's bases-loaded
triple in the eighth opened the gates for a six-inning that sealed Miami's
doom.
Game Number Three: Miami 12, Baylor 1 ... The Bears ended their
World Series stay almost before it began, this time in a blowout loss to
Miami. Augie Ruiz hurled a four hitter while Baylor committed five errors,
with its total of six miscues in the two games, more than their total hits, 5.
Game Number Four: ORU 11, North Caroline 0 ... The Titans collected 10
hits as they defeated the ACC champions. Greg Norris received his first
defeat of the season after 14 wins, Ron Meridith raised his record to 14-1 with
a three iter,
Game Number Five: ASU 13, St. John's 2 ... The Redmen kept the game
close through six innings even though the explosive Sun Devils led 5-1. But
three runs in the seventh and five runs in the eighth blew the game open. Bob
Horner, last year's MVP, drove in four runs with three doubles while team-
mates Chris Bando had a home run and a single, good for four more RBI's.
Casey Lindsey went the distance for his seventh win.
Game Number Six: N.C. 9, St. John's 5. . . A seven run third inning
decided this contest, as St. John's joined Baylor losing two straight. Four
Tar-Heel errors kept this game relatively close, as N.C. advanced to play
Michigan.
Game Number Seven: USC 11, Michigan 3 ... 'nuff said.
Game Number Eight: ASU 7, ORU 6 ... Two grand slam home runs
highlighted this contest. Bill Springmans eighth circuit clout boosted the
Titans to a 5-0 first inning lead. Horners' 25th round tripper brought ASU
back within one in the third, and a three spot in the fourth won it for the
Devils. Two doubles with none out in the ninth brought ORU to within one,
but freshman Ken Jones relieved Arizona State starter Mitchell Dean and
retired six in a row to preserve the win..

the dirt," said Robinson. "He came down a
back with the fastball and then another hitting
slider. On the fourth pitch, I was
looking fastball and got it. I knew I hit it IN T
well. If it wasn't out, I knew it was two out
