KANSAS CITY (AP)-Yankee-killer
Larry Gura survived consecutive
record-setting home runs in the second
inning and Frank White, Willie Aikens
and Willie Wilson delivered two-run hits
yesterday, leading the Kansas City
Royals to a 7-2 victory over New York
in'the opening game of the best-of-five
American League Championship
series.
Gura, an ex-Yankee who has won his
last seven regular-season decisions
from his old club but ° was only 1-2
against them in playoff action, settled
down after surrendering a double in
each of the first three innings, as well
as home runs by Rick Cerone and Lou
Piniella with one out in the second in-
ning. It was the first time consecutive

home runs had been hit in AL playoff
history. Cincinnati's George Foster and
Johnny Bench did it in the 1976 National
League playoffs.
THE VETERAN left-hander, who
failed to win in his last eight regular-
season starts while dropping five of
them and compiling a 6.46 earned run
average, notched his first victory since
Aug. 25.by checking the Yankees on five
singles after the third inning.
Meanwhile, the Royals pounded New
York's Ron Guidry for four runs on five
hits and four walks in the first three in-
nings. White tied the score with a two-
run double in the second, Aikens put the
Royals on top 4-2 with a two-run single
in the third and George Brett, the major
league batting champion, slammed a
solo home run off reliever Ron Davis in
the seventh. Wilson doubled home two
unearned runs in the eighth off Tom
Underwood.
The series resumes here Thursday
night with New York's Rudy May, 15-5,
opposing Kansas City's Dennis
Leonard, 20-11.

REMINISCING ON GREAT GRID CONTESTS:
A-maize-mg Blue has won a few

By RON POLLACK
As Bo Schembechler coaches in this,
his 12th season, he can look back upon
146 career victories. While all victories
are cherished, some are more prized
than others.
One such game took place in 1969,
when the Wolverines, in their first year
under Schembechler, took on top-
ranked Ohio State at Michigan
Stadium. The Buckeyes were riding a
game winning streak and were being
uded as the greatest team ever
,assembled in college football.
Michigan went into the game with a 7-
2 record, ranked 12th in the nation. The
Wlverines were the decided underdog
in this game and the only thing they had
in their favor was a tremendous desire
to avenge the previous year's 50-14
thrashing at the hands of the Buckeyes.
The Ohio State victory that seemed
minent was not meant to be. The
'olverines, in one of college bootball's
greatest upsets, defeated Ohio State 24-
12. The defense, which picked off six
OSU passes, held the Buckeyes
scoreless in the second half. The two
teams traded touchdowns, with
Michigan leading 14-12 as Ohio State
niissed on both conversion attempts.
At this point in the game Barry
Pieson, who had three interceptions
during the game, returned a punt 60
y'ards to the Ohio State three yard line.
wo plays later quarterback Don
"oorhead ran for the touchdown. A
second quarter Wolverine field goal en-
ded the scoring as the Michigan defense
stymied the Ohio State offense in the
second half.
The satisfaction derived from this
victory was expressed by Wolverine of-
fensive line coach Jerry Hanlon, "This
is the one that stands out in my mind in
importance. It was the culmination of
ur first year. Whenever you come into,
and change, a program, you hope to
reap some benefits. This win made the
sweat and tears worthwhile."
Nearly matching the 1969 OSU game
in pre-game hoopla was the 1978 mat-
chup'with the Fighting Irish from Notre
Dame. This game renewed a rivalry
that had been dormant for 35 years.
Down 14-7 at the half, the Michigan
offense erupted for three second half
touchdowns behind the leadership of
quarterback Rick Leach. Leach fired
coring strikes of five and 17 yards to
tight end Doug Marsh and added a 40
yarder to wide receiver Ralph Clayton.
The defense, which once again shut

out the opposition in a key game, was
led by Jerry Meter with a pass inter-
ception and a dozen tackles.
In addition to his passing success,
Leach also scored the Wolverine's first
touchdown on a four yard jaunt in the
second quarter. Although Michigan
missed an extra point and a two-point
conversion, it scored its 28th point when
Curtis Greer recorded a safety.
Despite a 14-6 loss to Oklahoma, the
1976 Orange Bowl nonetheless belongs
among Michigan's greatest victories.
This point is borne out by Hanlon's
assessment that "Winning is not always
the score. If you give a great efffort,
you can win evenif it is not on the
scoreboard."
The Wolverine defensive effort was
truly remarkable in this game, as the
offense that they held to two touch-
downs consisted of four future first-
round draft choices including wide
receiver Billy Brooks, and running
backs Joe Washington and Elvis
Peacock. Billy Sims, who is currently
running roughshod over NFL defenses,
was on this team, but did not carry the
ball.
Were it not for somee overthrown
passes, the Wolverines only completed
two of 20 passes on the day, Michigan
probably would have succeeded in up-
setting the Sooners.
"I've never been more proud of a
group of guys. We were a very young
team against the best defensive team I
ever saw (led by Lee Roy and Dewey
Selmon). Our defense was just superb
in stopping a very potent Oklahoma of-
fense. We had a few passes just barely
overthrown or it could have been a
great upset," said Hanlon.
The only first half score of this game
came on a Billy Brooks reverse for 39
yards. This play came right after a for-
ty-yard pass during an 80-yard scoring
drive.

Oklahoma had gone ahead 14-0 in the,
fourth quarter before Michigan got on
the scoreboard. The Wolverine's Gor-
don Bell scored on a two yard run, im-
mediately following a Jim Culbrepth
fumble.
Unlike the Oklahoma game,
Michigan did not play well in its most
recent "great" win. This game was the
now legendary Indiana game (1979).
When Indiana tied the game at 21-21
with 55 seconds left in Michigan's

homecoming things look bleak.
However, the Wolverines moved the
ball to the Indiana 45 with six seconds
left in the game, to set up one of the
most exciting and dramatic plays ever
seen in college football.
On this play, John Wangler hit An-
thony Carter with a pass over the mid-
dle. The freshman sensation then
proceeded to elude three would-be
tacklers and miraculously scored a
touchdown.
