EMU awaits World Series

OMAHA, Neb. f/', - The old baseball
adage is that good pitching stops good
If that holds true in the College World
Series, mark down Eastern Michigan as
a strong contender.
"PITCHING AND defense, that's what
we try to stress," said Coach Ron Oes-
trike of Eastern.
"We feel if those two parts of our
game are strong, we'll be okay in the
Top-rated Arizona State, 62-8, is the
favorite in the eight-team, double-elimi-
nation tournament that opens tonight
with : twilight double-header.
Auburn, 37-13, meets Clemson 35-13,

and Maine, 77-7, goes against Eastern
Michigan, 43-14, in tonight's twinbill,
wunle Arizona State is matched against
a:ch-rival Arizona, 51-16, and Washing-
' State, 42-13, tests Oklahoma, 61-17,
tomorrow night.
THE COLLEGE classic runs through
June 17 or 18, depending on whether an
unbeaten team captures the title.
"There obviously are some strong
teams no matter where you put them
in the brackets, but I've got to be hap-
py we're not going against the Arizona
teams and Oklahoma right away," said
After Arizona State, which is seeking
ii fourth title, the contenders appears

to be Arizona, Oklahoma and Eastern
EASTERN MICHIGAN qualified for a
second straight year by ousting Big Ten
Conference titlist Michigan. The Hurons'
long suit appears to be pitching.
Sophomore Bob Welch, 10-2, with a
1.ii earned run average, and junior Bob
Owchinko, whose 12-3 and 1.94 figures
earned him a first-round selection in the
free agent draft, are the mound main-
But estrike think "our third and
fourth pitchers are very strong too and
that's what you need here."
GLENN GULLIVERS, a speedy short-
stop who is hitting .413, heads the bat-

tig attack that also includes two others
over .350.
If Eastern is the sleeper in the field,
Washington State, Maine, Clemson and
Auburn fall into the category of un-
None have been to the series - which
has been dominated by western teams
the last nine years-in the last 10 years
and on paper don't appear to have the
talent to match Arizona State, Arizona
and Oklahoma.
"THE KEY to our success will be
fat us to keap hitting the ball like we
have and play good defense," said Wash-
ingtor: State Coach Chuck "Bobo" Bray-

Fireballer Tanana blanks
Yankees on siX hits, 2-0
By The Assoiayted Press
NEW YORK - Southpaw Frank Tanana limited New York to
six hits and struck out 10 batters as the California Angels beat
the Yankees 2-0 yesterday night
The Yankees' Rudy Mt's, 4-3, also allowed six hits but three
of them came in the third innng when the Angels scored their
Andy Etchebarren walked with one out and Bobby Bonds
followed with a single deep to the left-field corner. Etchebar-
ren was thrown out at third base by Yankee left fielder Roy
White. But Jerry Remy w alked and Ron Jackson tripled both
runners home.
White got two of the Yankee hits and stole second base as
partners with Mickey Rivers in a double steal in the first in-
ning. For White it was the 185th stolen base of his career, put-
ting him second to Hal Chase in career stolen bases as a Yankee
Bosox bruised
BOSTON - Don Bayicr, Sal Bando, Phil Garner and Tim
Hosley contributed doubles in a six-run eighth inning last night
as the Oakland A's rallied for a 8-5 victory over the Boston Red
A two-out throwing error by rookie third baseman Steve Dil-
lard enabled the A's to tie the score in the eighth. Then they un-
loaded on Tom Murphy, the third of four Boston pitchers.
Brewers dried up
MILWAUKEE - Buddy Bradford knocked in four runs with
a home run and an infield out and Jim Spencer slammed a two-
run homer and an RBI single, powring the surging Chicago
White Sox to a 12-5 victory ov-r the Milwaukee Brewers yester-
Rookie Francisco Barrios, 1-1, celebrated his 23rd birth-
day by checking the Brewers on seven hits in his first major
league start as the Sox won their 18th game of their last 24.
The White Sox jumped to a 2-0 first inning lead on two-ou
singles by Lamar Johnsen 'nd Jorge Orta and a two-run doublt
by Brian Downing.

CALIFORNIA Angels third-base coach Norm Sherry routrains Angel catcher Andy Etchebarren
from third btte umpire Larry McCoy in last night's game at Yankee Stadium. Etchebarren is
demonstrating to McCoy, his impersonation of the Grand Canyon. Sherry doesn't think McCoy
will be amused. The Angels won 2-0 despite Etchebarren's antics.

MILWAUKEE 0) - The De-
troit Tigers dealt Gary (Suds)
Sutherland to the Milwaukee
Brewers in exchange for Pedro
Garcia, often a disciplinary
problem in his three seasons
with the Brewers, in a straight
swap of second basemen yes-
The Brewers said the deal is
to take effect when Sutherland
formally clears waivers this af-
GARCIA, 26, is batting .217
with one home run and n i n e
RBIs in 106 times at bat. He
began the season as a regular
but recently has been platooned
with Tim Johnson. Garcia was
runnerup to Baltimore's Al
Bumobry as American League
Rookie of the Year in 1973 when
he hit .254 with 15 homers, but

he batted .199 and .225 the past
two years.
Garcia frequently was at odds
with former Brewer manager
Del Crandall, fired at the end
of. last season. Benched by
Crandall for light hitting early
last season, Garcia tried to ridi-
cule Crandall by standing near
second base and refusing to
field balls hit to him in practice
before a game in Kansas City.
Crandall 'wanted to get rid of
Garcia but the Brewers found
no takers.
Sutherland, 30, is hiting .205
with no homers in 117 times
at bat for Detroit. He hit .258
with six homers and 39 RBIs
last year. He began his b i g
league career with Philadelphia
in 1968 and also played for Mon-
treal before the Tigers acquired
him two years ago.
