WILD EXTRA INNING AFFAIR

Tigers, Jays

deadlocked at 8

By MARTHA CRALL and
JON MORELAND
Special to the Daily
DETROIT- The Detroit Tigers and
the Toronto Blue Jays were tied 8-8, af-
ter nine innings last night at Tiger
Stadium.
The Blue Jays were unable to muster
a single hit off Tiger starter Mark
Fidrych. However, he walked five of
the seven Jays he faced.
The big blows off of Fidrych were two
bases loaded, two-out walks to Al
Woods and Barry Bonnell.
After those two bases-on-balls, Tiger
manager Sparky Anderson decided to
bring in a hurler who could throw
strikes. Anderson summoned reliever
Jerry Ujdur, who succeeded by
throwing his first pitch down the middle
of the plate. The Jays' centerfielder,
number eight hitter, Paul Hodgson
crossed the Tigers up by recording
Toronto's first base hit.
The blow was a triple up the left-
center field alley that knocked in the
Jays' third, fourth and fifth runs. Cat-
cher Ernie Whitt followed with a double
to right center giving Toronto a six run
lead before the Tigers' first turn at bat.

The Tigers battled back to tie it up
with five runs in the bottom half of the
sixth inning.
Steve Kemp got things started with a
towering fly ball that landed in the up-
per deck bleachers in right field. The
clout was Kemp's 21st homer of the
year and accounted for his 97th RBI of
the campaign.
Designated hitter Champ Summers
followed with a walk and Tim Corcoran
singled before Blue Jay manager Bob-
by Mattick replaced starter Mike Todd
with reliever Mike Barlow.
John Wockenfuss followed with an in-
field single, and Al Cowens came
through with a base hit scoring Sum-
mers and Corcoran.
With Stan Papi at the plate,! Barlow
uncorked a wild pitch scoring Wocken-
fuss and moving Cowens to second.
With still no one out, Papi laid down a
perfect sacrifice bunt; moving Cowens
to third.
Mattick then brought on lefthander
Paul Mirabella to pitch to Tiger lefty
Lou Whitaker. Whitaker came through
with a sacrifice to deep left field scoring
Cowens and evening the score at 7-7.
Both teams came with single runs in
the eighth inning. The Blue Jays got

theirs on a pair of singles and a ground
out.
The Tigers came back to tie the score
when Wockenfuss launched a Mirabella
fastball 15 rows deep into the left field

lower deck.
After Dan Petry. retired the Blue
Jays one-two-three in the top of the nin-
th, the Tigers mounted a threat in the
bottom half of the inning.

'M'edges Western
n field hockey debut
KALAMAZOO-The Wolverine field hockey squad, in their season opener,
upended Western Michigan 3-2 last night.
Michigan's Marty Maugh opened the scoring for the Wolverines eight minutes
into the first half. Shortly thereafter, Michigan took a 2-0 lead on Julie Forrestel's
tally. However, with only two minutes remaining in the first half, Western's
Margaret Hindle scored, and Michigan's lead was cut to 2-:1 at the intermission.
WESTERN STARTED where they had left off, as Hindle added another goal in
e first two minutes of the final half to tie the score at 2-3: The winning goal was
scored by Michigan's Maugh, midway through the last half.
The victory was sweet revenge for Michigan, as last year Western defeated the
Wolverines in the state championship tournament.
The Zinwell Award, given to the outstanding offensive and defensive players of
the game, went to Maugh on offense, and Forrestel on defene.
Michigan's goaltenders,1aureen Vachon and Heather Cairns,recorded seven
saves, while the offense totaled 11 shots at Western's goal,
'Hollywood'signs with Oilers
HOUSTON (AP)- Thomas "Hollywood" Henderson signed a contract yester-
Jay with the HoustotOilers, but club officials were uncertain the National Foot-
all League veteran would see action in Sunday's game against Cincinnati.
Terms of the agreement were not disclosed by the Oilers, but Henderson repor-
tedly took a salary cut from the $125,000 plus incentives he earned annually with
the San Francisco 49ers.
HENDERSON WAS SIGNED after veteran offensive guard Conway Hayman
was placed on injured reserve. Hayman, a three-year starter for the Oilers, suf-
fered a ruptured disc in his back and would be sidelined at least four weeks, the
spokesman said.
Henderson, 27, was waived by the 49ers last week. After he became a free
agent Monday, he said he wanted to pay for the Oilers and offered to play free the
irst two weeks.
" The veteran linebacker was waived by Dallas Cowboys Coach Tom Landry
last November after a series of incidents when Henderson missed practices or was
late for meetings.
The 49ers later signed Henderson but team officials said he missed 25 practice
sessions and was waived by Coach Bill Walsh.
