Three playoffs undecided
LOS ANGELES (AP)- Steve Garvey
blasted a two-run homer to cap a three-
run first inning and Burt Hooton limited
Houston to three hits for seven innings
yesterday as the Los Angeles Dodgers
downed the Astros 6-1 to stay alive in
the National League West playoff.:
Los Angeles, which now trails 2-1 in
the best-of-five series, has now won 12
of its last 14 games over Houston at
Bodger Stadium, site of the fourth
game tonight and a fifth game, if
needed, tomorrow afternoon.
V GARVEY, WHO had provided the
Dodgers with their only run of the first
two playoff games with a homer off
Nolan Ryan last Tuesday, connected on
a 3-1 pitch off loser Bob Knepper to give
the Dodgers a 3-0 lead.
Davey Lopes opened the first inning
by walking on four pitches. He was,
sacrificed to second by Ken Landreaux
and scored as Dusty Baker slapped
Knepper's first pitch for a double to
left-center. Garvey followed with his
Hooton, who was originally scheduled
to start the fourth game of the series
but was switched to the third game af-
ter the Astros opened with 3-1 and 1-0
wins in Houston, was seldom in trouble
before being lifted for Steve Howe after*
he walked Art Howe to open the eighth.
Art Howe's homer leading off the
third inning(produced the only Houston
run. Hooton, who walked three and
struck out two didn't face more than
four batters in any inning. The Dodgers,
helped him by turning double plays in
each of the first two innings.
The only other Houston hits off the
veteran right-hander were a single by
Jose Cruz in the second inning and a
double by Cruz in the seventh.
Phillies 6, Expos 2
Larry Christenson, in his first start sin-
ce August 24, allowed four hits in six in-
ning and the Philadelphia Phillies'bats
came alive yesterday to beat the Mon-
treal Expos 6-2 and avoid elimination in
the best-of-five National League East
Division playoff series.
The Expos who won the first two
games of the divisional playoffs in Mon-
treal, took a 1-0 lead in the second in-
GARY CARTER, whose two-run
homer won Game Two at Montreal
Thursday night, opened the second with
a double to left. Chris Speier knocked in
his third run of the series with a two-out
The Phillies,however, went ahead for
the first time in the series in their half
of the second.
Gary Matthews and Keith Moreland
signled and, one out later, Manny Trillo
singled through the middle off Expos
starter and loser Ray Burris, scoring
Matthews. Center Fielder Andre
Dawson's throw to third wound up in
the Montreal dugout, allowing
Moreland to score to make it 2-1.
In the sixth, the Phillies scored twice
to boost their lead to 4-1.
The Phillies are attempting to
become the first team since the five-
game playoff series were initiated in
1969 to come back from a 2-0 deficit to
win. In 1972, the Detroit Tigers fell
behind Oakland 2-0, won the next two
games, but lost to the A's in the fifth
NEW YORK (AP)-Paul Molitor
socked a tie-breaking leadoff homer in
the eighth inning and Ted Simmons
drove in three runs with a homer a
double as the slumbering Milwaukee
Brewers erupted for a 5-3 victory over
the New York Yankees last night,
staying alive in the American League
East division playoffs.
Simmons' two-run homer in the
seventh snapped a 19-inning scoring
drought by the normally hard-hitting
Brewers, and they went on to narrow
the Yankees' lead in the best-of-five
series to 2 games to 1.
THE FOURTH GAME is scheduled
for Yankee Stadium for 4:10 p.m. EDT.
today. Rick Reuschel will pitch for New
York, probably against Milwaukee's
Pete Vuckovich, who has been held out
of the last two ?games due to a high
The Brewers' decisive two-run eighth
inning came after the Yankees had
jumped on Milwaukee reliever Rollie
Fingers, who led the majors with 28
saves, for a pair of runs in the bottom of
the seventh that knotted the score 3-3.
Molitor's home run just cleared a
desperate leap by Dave Winfield, New
York's 6 foot 6 left fielder, who jack-
knifed over the 8-foot-high wall. It was
the third hit of the game for Molitor,
whose leadoff singles in the first and
fourth were Milwaukee's only hits off
Tommy John until the Brewers' three-
Robin Yount followed with a single off
the glove of third baseman Graig Net-
tles that KO'd John and brought on
Rudy May. Yount advanced to second
after May caught Cecil Cooper's line
drive bunt in the air but threw wildly
past first trying to double Yount. A wild
pitch moved Yount to third and he
scored when Simmons laced a double
up the alley in left center.

OAKLAND (AP)- Rickey Hender-
son broke out of a slump by reaching

The Michigan hockey team faced off
against themselves last night in what is
to become an annual Blue-White intra-
squad game, as the White team downed
the Blues, 4-2. Only 351Wolverine loyals
showed up at Yost Arena, but the
players showed all the enthusiasm of a
The first period started slowly with
few shots taken against either goal.
The Blue squad carried the attack early
in the period, with several good scoring
opportunities against White team
freshman goalie Jon Elliott, but the
Spencerville, Ontario native deflected
all eight shots against him.
BLUE GOALIE Peter Mason,
however, was not as impressive. The
White's offense was dormant until 14:05
of the first period when freshman left
winger James Huber tipped in a slap-
shot from the point by Brian Lundberg.
Fifty second later, Jeff Tessier made it
2-0 on a slapshot from just above the
The pace quickened in the second
period, as the White team left winger
Paul Brandrup was put in the penalty
box for hooking and the Blue squad's
Brad Tippett scored against
replacement goalie Mark Chiamp to cut
the lead to 2-1. Tippett scored again with
49 second left in the period on a quick
wrist shot to even the score at 2-2.
But' the White squad scored the
deciding goals in the final period.
White captain Steve Richmond netted
the go-ahead score at 10:58 on a back-
hand shot from just outside the
Then, as the White defense toughened
on the Blue, Joe Milburn scored the
final goal of the night into an empty
Blue net at 19:31.
COACH JOHN Giordano was im-
pressed with some aspects of the game.
"I think they're playing good defen-
sively for this point of the season, "said
the second-year coach. "Overall it
wasn't bad. Offensively there really
wasn't much there."
Giordano singled out two freshman for
fine performances. "I liked the way.

LAFAYETTE, La.- The results for the Michigan tennis
team, which was represented by four players at the Miller
High Life Tennis Classic, were mixed on Thursday. When the
first round ended for the four Wolverine participants, two
had been defeated.
Playing at the tournament, hosted by Southwestern
Louisiana, were the Wolverines' top four players.
MIKE LEACH, the _tournament's top seed, handily
defeated Alabama's Denys Maasdorp in straight sets, 6-2, 6-
4. Last year, Leach was the Big Ten runnerup in first singles.
The then-defending champion was defeated in that match by
Ohio State's Ernie Fernandez, 7-5, 6-4.

The other Wolverine victory belonged to Mark Mees. Mees,
like Leach, won in straight sets, emerging as the winner over
Mark Harrington of Clemson, 6-1, 6-3. Mees is the defending

second year in a row, by outlasting Ohio State's Lior Rusinek,
6-0, 6-7, 6-3 in the finals held in Ann Arbor last May.
The Wolverine netters who lost were Tom Haney and Bill
Godfry. Haney lost to Clemson's RichardAker, 6-3, 7-5. God-
fry was defeated by Pat Hughsman of Southwestern
Louisiana. Hughsman won by a comfortable 6-3,6-1 margin.
Godfry is a newcomer for the Wolverines, coming to
Michigan as a transfer student from Colorado.
