FLYERS DRAFT MORRISON IN 5th

Can adians tab

S " Hughes

Rightwingers Pat Hughes and
Gary Morrison were the first
two Michigan Wolverines chosen
a in the National Hockey League's
annual amateur draft yesterday
in Montreal.
Hughes, the sixth college play-
er drafted, went to the Mon-
treal Canadiens in the third
round. Philadelphia chose Mor-
rison on the last pick of the
fifth round.
"Right now I'm just thinking
about what's going on," Hughes
said. The speedy rightwinger
heard about his selection while
at work. "My parents knew
about it before I did," he said.
"They called to tell me the
news."
REPORTS received last night
indicated that Wolverines Doug
Lindskog and John McCahill
were also drafted but by whom
and in what rounds was not
known.
Wisconsin defenseman Brian
Engblom was the first college
player selected when Montreal
grabbed him in the second
round with a draft choice ob-
tained f r o m the Minnesota
North Stars.
Later in the second round the
Pittsburgh Penguins snatched
defenseman R u s s Anderson
from the University of Minne-
sota.
THIRD ROUND picks in-
cluded John Tweedle from Lake
Superior State by California,
Notre Dame players Alex Pirus
by the North Stars and Clarke

Hamilton by the Detroit Red
Wings and Hughes.
California and Minnesota dip-
ped into the college pool again
in the fourth round for Colorado
College's Greg Smith and Mich-
igan Tech's Steve Jensen, re-
spectively. Pittsburgh also took
its second collegian, Michigan
Tech's Stu Younger.
The Washington Capitals own-
ed the first pick in the draft but
traded it to the Stanley Cup
champion Philadelphia Flyers
for center Bill Clement.
Philadelphia used the pick to
grab center Mel Bridgman from
the Victoria Cougars of the
Western Hockey League. Choos-
in fifth, the Detroit Red Wings
tabbed defenseman Rick La-
nointe, also from Victoria.
STANLEY C U P runnerup
Buffalo may have opened the
way for possible litigation
against the league by drafting
defenseman Greg Neeld. Neeld
lost the vision in his left eye
when playing for the Toronto
Marlboros in the O n t a r i o
Hockey Association last season.
NHL President Clarence
Campbell said last week that
Neeld was eligible for the draft,
but "it wouldn't do any good
because he can't pass the
league's physical examinations
--the vision test."
Neeld has threatened to sue
the league, and the NHL's rules
committee has agreed to listen
to a presentation on his behalf
June 16.

0th

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (A)-
Bobby Bonds blasted a record-
breaking home run and Alex
Johnson contributed a key two-
run double, leading the New
York Yankees to a 5-4 victory
over the Minnesota Twins last
night.
Bonds' homer in the final in-
ning, his 12th of the season,
gave him 29 for his career as a
leadoff man, a major league
record. He previously shared
the mark with Eddie Yost.
Johnson's pinch-hit double in
the eighth inning wiped out a 4-3
Minnesota lead built on Steve
Brye's three-run homer in the
third inning,
Expos expire
MONTREAL (1)-Dave Lopes'
two-run double in the eighth
inning provided the winning runs
as Los Angeles' Don Sutton be-
came the National League's
first 10-game winner with a 6-5
victory over the Montreal Ex-
pos last night.
Jim Brewer pitched the
ninth inning for the Dodgers
and gave up a run on Barry
Foote's base hit before nail-
ing down the decision for Sut-
ton, 10-3.
Lopes' two-run double pro-
vided the Dodgers with a 6-3
lead before the Expos came
back with a run in the eighth
on Pat Scanlon's home run.
Earlier, Steve Garvey belted
a solo homer in the seventh in-
ning off Steve Renko, 0-4, to
snap a 3-3 tie.

Boston blasts
BOSTON (1)-Rookie slugger
Jim Rice drilled a three-run
homer in the first inning and
Dick Pole made it stand up
with a three-hitter last night as
the Boston Red Sox beat the
Chicago White Sox 4-0.
Pole, making only his sec-
ond start of the season and
his 11th since joining the Red
Sox in 1973, pitched the first
complete game of his pro ca-
reer. He struck out eight bat-
ters and walked three.
The only Chicago hits were a
bunt single by Pat Kelly in the
third inning, a lime single to left
by Bill Melton in the fifth and
a triple by Jorge Orta in the
ninth.
Royals ravage
CLEVELAND (P)-Al Cowen's
two-run, two-out single in the
sixth inning led the redhot Kan-
sas City Royals to a 5-2 vic-
tory over the Cleveland Indians
last night.
The Royals' victory was their
10th in the last 11 games and
their 16th of 21 starts since
May 11.
Jim Wohlford opened the
Royals' sixth with a double to
left and scored on John May-
berrq's single, tying the game-
at 2-2. Fran Healy singled and
loser Fritz Peterson, 4-5,
walked George Brett to load
the bases before Cowen de-
livered two runs with his hit.
Mayberry's seventh home run
of the season, in the eighth in-
ning, gave the Royals their fi-
nal run.

The Royals took a 1-0 lead in
the third inning when Wohlford
singled and reached third on
error. He scored an unearned
run on Hal McRae's sacrifice
fly.
Cincinnati cinchs
PITTSBURGH (A') --- "We
were out of first so long I al-
most forgot the feeling," Man-
ager Sparky Anderson said
after his Cincinnati Reds re-
mained atop the National
League eWst by defeating the
Pittsburgh Pirates 8-4 last
night.
It was the 10th victory in 11
games for the Reds, who over-
took Los Angeles by a few per-
centage points Monday night to
climb atop the NL West for the
first time since April 14.
"We still have a battle on our
hands, but it's always good to
be in first," said Anderson.
"We started off bad every
season, and people say we're
not as good as we're supposed
to be," noted Morgan. "But
with the kind of players we
have, we don't panic."
Catcher Johnny Bench went
0-4 and didn't contribute to Cin-
cinnati's 11-hit attack, but he
too liked the feeling of first.
"When you work to get back
on top and then make it, you
get a little pride, a little mo-
mentum going because you
want to stay there," said
Bench.
