Tigers
By GARY EFFMAN
With wire service reports
DETROIT - After coming out
roaring in Tuesday night's series
opener with the Orioles, the Tigers
could manage only a feeble meow,
losing the opener of last night's double-
header with the Birds, 6-0.
Mike Boddicker pitched his fifth
shutout, struck out a career-high 12 bat-
ters and received home run support
from Eddie Murray, Cal Ripken and
John Lowenstein to help Baltimore
reduce their magic number of five.
BODDICKER raised his record to 15-
7 and lowered his ERA to 2.58 while pit-
ching a five-hitter. He also walked five
but ended four innings with strikeouts
to bail himself out of jams. Boddicker
struck out the side in the ninth to tie
Detroit's Jack Morris for most
strikeouts in a game this season.
Morris, 19-12, gave up all three home
runs and was denied his 20th win of the
year for the second straight start. He
allowed six hits and struck out eight to
increase his American League-leading
Photo strikeout total to 221.
fifth In the first inning Morris threw

dopes dim; O's win, 6-0

nothing but smoke, retiring the Orioles
in order. Boddicker returned the favor
blanking the Tigers in their first stanza.
IN THE SECOND inning Morris
snapped. The first batter he faced, Ed-
die Murray, pounded a long ball into the
upper deck in right.

Morris, who normally has good con-
trol, seemed to find homeplate
shrunken by Tuesday night's rain.
Following Murray's 29th homer he let
up a walk to Lowenstein, allowed a base
hit to Ken Singleton before walking
Rich Dauer and Rick Dempsey to force
in a run. Singleton scored on a sacrifice
fly before the third inning ended.
Ripken opened the third inning with
his 25th homer and Morris retired the
next 12 batters in order. Ripken singled
with one out in the eighth and one out
later, Lowenstein clouted his 13th home
run, off the facing of the upper deck in
right field.
Detroit loaded the bases in the fourth
with two out, but Glenn Wilson tapped
back to Boddicker to end the threat.

Highlights of the 1983 baseball season.. .
... the shortest movie ever made

By ROB POLLARD
As the month of September draws to a close, so
does yet another season of professional baseball.
Although some diehard baseball fans may
disagree, it has been a pretty boring year. The
1983 season has been (up until now) one of the
most unspectacular years in recent history. Con-
sider these points as proof:
" The George Brett Memorial Pine Tar Game
stole the baseball headlines for as long as a mon-
th in some parts of the country, simply because
there was nothing else to write about.
" Reggie Jackson neither quarreled with team-
mates or shot his mouth off. He did hit .200 and
crack some ribs though.
" Only three: managers were fired during the
season. Pat Corrales was released by the
Phillies, Lee Elia by the Cubs, and Mike Ferraro
by the Indians. George Bamberger manifested
his sanity by stepping down as skipper of the
Mets.
" The Los Angeles 'Dodgers will win another
Western division title with an infield which
defensively is as solid as the bridges in Connec-
ticut.
" The National League East will produce a
champion which will not have won 90 games.
But the '83 campaign has been a good one for
some. The Chicago White Sox will be making
their first post-season appearance in 23 years.
The White Sox enjoyed their champagne Satur-
day after clinching the A.L. West, but it would

have been more appropriate if they sent the bub-
bly to each of the teams in their division in ap-
preciation for the less-than-stiff competition.
The Sox could hang tough in any division
though. They have arguably the best pitching in
the big leagues - with four excellent starters in
Britt Burns, Richard Dotson, LaMarr Hoyt and
second-half sensation Floyd Bannister who is 12-
1 since the All-Star break. The Sox' combination
of strong pitching and balanced hitting gives
them an excellent chance of winning it all.
Barring a miracle in Tiger-town, the Chisox
will oppose the big bad Birds from Baltimore.
Ever since Yankee Dave Winfield mortally
wounded a bird in Toronto with a throw from the
outfield, the Orioles have been red hot. This may
be coincidence or it may be nature's way of get-
ting even with the Yanks and the rest of the
division. Despite a bottom third of the batting
order than can't hit its weight, the Orioles still
manage to win, and they will be a favorite to
defeat the White Sox in the AL playoffs and move
into the World Series.
It appears as though the old men from
Philadelphia will hobble away with the National
League East title. Despite a sub-par year by pit-
ching ace Steve Carlton, the Phillies will edge
out the Pirates and the talent-loaded Expos, who
may never get their act together. But the Phillies
will be easy prey for old nemesis and NL West
champ Los Angeles.

Why don't the Dodgers throw the ball around
the infield after an out? Because manager
Tommy Lasorda doesn't want any of his pitchers
to get beaned. The, Dodgers have been able to
overcome their atrocious infield play by virtue of
good pitching and the long ball. These two
ingredients are enough to get the to their fourth
World Series in seven years.
What will happen to liven up what has been a
dull year in baseball? There are a few events
which will salvage the season.
*.After his Dodgers clinch the NL West, Tommy
Lasorda will come running out of the dugout onto
the field and leap into the air. He will not come
down.
" In the Championship series against the
Dodgers, Pete Rose will go from first to third on
a single. Hustling all the way, Pete will slide
head first into third. Only one problem - Pete
will forget to close his mouth, and hence he will
swallow third base. Unphased, Rose will steal
home on the next pitch.
* Finally, the Atlanta Braves, who blew a sub-
stantial lead over the Dodgers after removing
Chief Nacahoma from his teepee, will end the
controversy surrounding Brett Butler by sending
the chief himself to the Cleveland Indians as the
player to be named later in the Len Barker deal.
The Indians, who already have a drum-beating
mascot residing in right field, will name the chief
as their manager for the 1984 season. As for the
Braves - they might not win a game all next year.

BASEBALL ROUNDUP:

Atlanta rips Cincinnati, 9-1

ATLANTA (AP) - Chris Chambliss
drove in four runs with a pair of homers
and Dale Murphy added a three-run
blast yesterday to lead the Atlanta
Braves to a 9-1 rout of the Cincinnati
Reds in the first game of a
doubleheader.
Murphy's home run and Chambliss'
first came back-to-back in a five-run
third inning, staking right-hander Craig
McMurtry to a 6-1 lead. McMurtry, 14-9,
yielded only five hits in recording his
second straight victory after having
lost four in a row.

Murphy unloaded against Cincinnati
starter Charlie Puleo, 5-11, sending a
drive over the center field fence for his
35th homer. Chambliss then greeted
reliever Rich Gale with his 19th, also to
center.
Chambliss hit his second home run, a
drive down the right field line with two
runners on base, against Ted Power in
the fourth.
Cubs 7, Pirates 6
CHICAGO (AP) - Jody Davis'
sacrifice fly and Larry Bowa's infield

single drove in the tying and winning
runs in the seventh inning yesterday
and lifted the Chicago Cubs to a 7-6 vic-
tory over the Pittsburgh Pirates.
It marked Pittsburgh's 10th straight
loss in Chicago, including eight this
season.
Reliever Fergie Jenkins, 6-9, posted
his 284th career victory and Lee Smith
picked up his 28th save. Reliever
Cecilio Guante, 2-5, took the loss.
White Sox 2, Twins I
CHICAGO (AP) - LaMarr Hoyt won
his major league-leading 22nd game
and his 11th in a row, while Harold
Baines RBI single in the seventh in-
ning broke a 1-1 tie as the Chicago
White Sox beat the Minnesota Twins 2-1
yesterday in the first game of a double
header.
Pinch-hitter Julio Cruz started the
seventh by drawing a walk from loser

Ken Schrom, 13-8. Rudy Law sacrificed
him to second and pinch-hitter Jerry
Hairston drew a walk.
Baines then delivered his run-scoring
single for his 20th game-winning RBI of
the season, tying him for the American
League lead with Dave Winfield of the
New York Yankees.
Giants, 5, Padres 4
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Dave
Bergman, a late-inning defensive
replacement, belted a two-out, two-run
homer in the bottom of the ninth, lifting
the San Francisco Giants to a 5-4 vic-
tory over the San Diego Padres.
Bergman connected for his sixth
homer of the season following a two-out
single by Chili Davis off Floyd Chiffer.
Padres relief ace Gary Lucas, 5-8, took
over and Bergman hit a 1-1 pitch over
the screen in right center.

types of people that play Griddes, foot-
ball fanatics and pizza-lovers. This is a
false assumption. All kinds of kids love
Griddes. Fat kids, skinny kids, even
engineers have been known to drop a
form off now and then. Word has it that
even Bo plays Griddes. Why, you ask?
Because it builds character. That's
right, Griddes builds character.
