Pitching sharp as A's,

Astros go up


Yanks, Expos also win

Houston Astros' Phil Garner is greeted by Luis Pujols after scoring the winning run on a two-out, bases-loaded single in
the bottom of the 11th inning by pinch-hitter Denny Walling as the Astros beat the Dodgers 1-0 yesterday. The win gave
the Astros a 2-0 lead as the best of five series moves to Los Angeles. Joe Sambito, who came on in the top of the 11th in-
ning, picked up the win for Houston. Joe Neikro, who started for the Astros, pitched a strong eight innings before
* leaving, as did Los Angeles starter Jerry Reuss who shut out the Astros for nine innings.

. ..ntensity overdue
M ICHIGAN BY 40 points.
That's the kind of spread, give or take a touchdown, I am looking for
when the Wolverines face rival Michigan State this weekend. The game is in
East Lansing, you say? Oh. Michigan by 39.
I could point to dozens of reasons'why the Maize and Blue will run up a big
score versus the Spartans, but first and foremost is that, when charged up,
this team is awesome. And the Wolverines are overdue to be charged up, on
offense and defense, when they take the field on Saturday. -
Only when they whipped the Irish, 25-7, were both Michigan units intense
for the game's duration. At Wisconsin, it appeared to be a chore for
Michigan linemen, on both sides of the ball, to get down into a three-point
stance; the squad was certainly lackluster in its win over Navy; and last
Saturday in Bloomington, while the offense exploded, Wolverine defenders
had their share of problems, especially early.
Two plays on Indiana's first possession were absolutely stunning for
anyone who had watched the Michigan secondary in action throughout 1980.
On first down, it took Indiana's Duane Gunn four steps to beat Marion Body
by two for a 13-yard pass gain. In other words, Body was caught flat-footed.
On the first defensive play of the game.
The two downs later, Hoosier tight end Bob Stephenson, a fine football
player but by no means a 'burner,' chugged downfield, looked up, and found
that nobody was close enough for him to shout at. He remained that way, too,
until quarterback Babe Laufenberg, perhaps responding to the frantic "He's
open" cries from the crowd, finally picked him out for a touchdown.
Defense better with age
I recall these events because they are the kind that victimize flat teams,
teams that are not mentally prepared. It certainly is not an indication of a
dropoff in talent; it isn't likely that Body or Tony Jackson or Brian Carpen-
ter or Keith Bostic has lost a step at the tender age of 21. And that is the same
group that yielded only three scoringtosses all of last year-against some
imposing opposition quarterbacks, as well.
The rest of the defense should get better with age. A healthy Winfred
Carraway (who missed most of the first three games with a pair of sprained
ankles) at defensive tackle is a big plus, and 6-2, 242-pound Doug James is
beginning to assert himself at middle guard. Another sophomore, inside
linebacker Mike Boren (53 tackles), seems to be near the pileup on every
defensive play and may some day make folks forget Andy Cannavino.
And if Wolverine followers were beginning to doubt Michigan's offensive
capabilities, the show that Steve Smith, Butch Woolfolk and Co. put on in
Bloomington was just what was needed.
Woolfolk's 176 yards in two-and-a-half quarters was the kind that is coming
to be expected of one of the top four backs in the country; lack of offensive
line consistency has not prevented Woolfolk from piling up big yardage thus
far, and the prospects are devastating should Kurt Becker, Bubba Paris, and
the others start opening up 1980-style holes consistently.
The quarterbacking of Smith, though, is perhaps the area in which
Wolverine fans can expect the greatest improvement-he is already begin-
ning to display the throwing ability which everyone has looked for.
While one can look for Bo Schembechler to have this talented bunch sky-
high, the situation on the other side of the field is much more uncertain. Sure,
the MSU players will jump up and down and pat each other on the helet
before the opening kickoff.
But genuine emotion among the Spartan gridders may well be lacking.
Enrollment at the university is down, and the glory days of 1978-79 Michigan
State athletics, when the Spartans won Big Ten titles in football, basketball,
and baseball, seem so far in the past. As a result, morale is low, so low that
many fans hope the Wolverines win big so that MSU's noted delegator of
duties, Muddy Waters, will be fired as coach. An atmosphere like that cannot
help but adversely affect a football team.
So takenote on Saturday-yqu are observing two football teams, and
maybe two schools, headed in opposite directions.

HOUSTON (AP) - It was the kind of
cliff-hanger that has become almost a
trademark of the Houston Astros.
There they were again yesterday . .
.extra inning$,- two-outs, score tied.
This time pinch-hitter Denny Walling
drilled a bases-loaded liner into the
right center field alley to give Houston
a 1-0 victory in 11 innings over the Los f
Angeles Dodgers.
Now the Astros have a 2-0 lead in the
National League Western Division best-
of-5 series. The two teams travel to Los
Angeles for Game 3 tomorrow and any
subsequent games Saturday and Sun-
The loser again was Dave Stewart,
who was tagged for a two-out, two-run'
homer by Alan Ashby in the bottom of
the ninth last night for a 3-1 Houston vic-
Phil Garner, who scored the winning
run, said the Astros wanted a sweep of
the series because "we would hate to let
'em get their heads above water in
their own park."

KANSAS CITY (AP) - Tony Armas
hit two singles and two doubles, driv-
ing in both Oakland runs, and Steve
McCatty outdueled rookie Mike Jones
to give the A's a 2-1 victory over the
Kansas City Royals and a 2-0 lead in the
American League Western Division
Armas lashed a double through the
legs of third baseman George Brett in
the eighth, knocking in Dwayne Mur-
phy with the winning run.
BUT THE OAKLAND right fielder,
who led the A's this season with 76 runs
batted in, had to leave the game after
the eighth-inning hit -because of
soreness on the left side of the groin
McCatty, 14-7 during the season,
struck out three, walked four and gave
up only six hits to the slumping Royals,
who were 50-52 for the year, the only
sub-.500 team in the playoffs.
After beating the Royals 4-0 in the
opener of the best of 5 series Tuesday,
the A's are one victory away from
meeting the Eastern Division champion
for the American League pennant. The
next three .games of the series are
scheduled in Oakland, starting Friday.

victory over the Milwaukee Brewers.
last night in the first game of the

American League East Division cham-
pionship series.

Hoopsters retrieve
Van de Wehe to coach

With only one returning starter
(senior forward Thad Garner), the
Michigan basketball team will sport
many newcomers this coming season:
Not all the new faces will belong to
players, however, for the Wolverines
have a new assistant coach: Bud Van
de Wehe, Jr.
Van de Wehe, who graduated from
Michigan in 1980 with a degree in
physical education, will take over Tom
Kempf's old spot in joining head coach
Bill Frieder and fellow assistants Mike
Boyd- and Don Sicko on the Wolverine
THE POST opened up when Kempf,
who will still help the team as a "volun-
teer assistant", decided to concentrate
on taking classes to attain a Masters
"I'm really thrilled about it," said Van
de Wehe of his new job. " It's a great
opportunity to learn about coaching.
The opportunity is the most exciting
thing about it, along with working un-
der coaches like Frieder, Sicko, and

Boyd." Van de Wehe said he sees his
post as a "stepping stone position," a
"foot in the door in coaching".
Michigan basketball is certainly.
nothing new to Van de Wehe. In his
freshman and sophomore years he
played on the Wolverine junior varsity
squad, and when that team was discon-
tinued, Van de Wehe became the var-
sity's manager for his junior and senior
years. - Last season he served as the
team's graduate assistant.
VAN DE WEHE'S primary roles with
the Wolverines this season will consist
of handling travel arrangements,
scouting Michigan opponents, and ad-
vising the players in academic affairs.
He is currently helping to supervise the
team's pre-season conditioning and
weightlighting program.
The Ann Arbor native found out about
his appointment in July, when he was
away from town applying for coaching
jobs at various high schools, and he said
the call came as a'surprise' .
"I left my job last year and didn't
expect to return," said Van de Wehe.
"I'm just really excited to be back here."
