Tarpley sidelined for surgery

Kansas City Royals, rallying behind
the five-hit pitching of Bret
Saberhagen, completed one of
baseball's most .shocking comebacks
last night and won their first World
Series championship, defeating the
St. Louis Cardinals 11-0 in the decisive
seventh game.
The Cardinals, who had seen their 3-
1 lead in games vanish along with
their hitting, simply collapsed in the
final game.
WHAT HAD been billed as the
greatest seventh-game pitching mat-
_ chup in more than two decades went
up in smoke created by the Royals
bats. The Cardinals' ace, 21-game
winner John Tudor, couldn't even
.make it through the third inning and
wound up in a Kansas City hospital for
stitches after cutting his index finger
on an electric fan in the clubhouse.
".-The destruction occured at the han-
ds of platoon outfielder Darryl
Motley, who hit a two-run homer and
drove in three runs; Steve Balboni,
* who drove in two of Kansas City's

three runs in the third inning, and the
suddenly rejuvenated George Brett,
who had four hits.
The Royals put the game away with
six runs in the fifth inning, during
which both pitcher Joaquin Andujar
and Manager Whitey Herzog were
ejected by home plate umpire Don
Denkinger. Herzog had argued a
critical Denkinger call at first base
that fueled the Royals' winning, ninth-
inning rally in Game 6, and con-
secutive ball calls on inside pitches to
Royals catcher Jim Sundberg brought
all the frustration erupted to the sur-
WHILE THE Royals completed a
comeback unprecedented in the game
recovering not only from a 1-3 deficit
in the American League playoffs but
from 0-2 and 1-3 disadvantages in the
Series - the Cardinals faded into of-
fensive oblivion.
Part of the Cardinals' offensive
woes probably could be traced to the
absence of injured leadoff hitter Vince
Coleman, but the lack of St. Louis hit-
ting also had to be a tribute to the

young, well-schooled pitching staff of
the Royals.
THE ROYALS pitchers not only
quieted the St. Louis bats but
frustrated and eventually halted
altogether the vaunted running game
of the Cardinals. The Cards had stolen
314 bases during the season, for an
average of nearly two a game, but
managed just two swipes in the Series
against the predominantly left-
handed Royals staff.
This night, however, belonged to a
21-year-old right-hander by .the name
of Saberhagen, whose wife, Janeane,
had given birth to their first child, son
Drew, the day before. Saberhagen,
who had won Game 3 to give the
Royals hope, struck out two and
walked none.
Saberhagen, selected most valuable
player, allowed a second-inning single
to Jack Clark, then retired 11 in a row
before giving up another single to Tito
Landrum with two out in the fifth in-
ning. He also allowed singles to Ozzie
Smith, Andy Van Slyke and Terry

Michigan center Roy Tarpley will
undergo arthroscopic, surgery today
to examine a nyperextended knee in-
jured during practice last Tuesday.
"We're hopeful that it's nothing,"
said Michigan head coach Bill
Frieder. "We hope he'll be back prac-
ticing in a couple weeks."
The 6-11 senior twisted his right
knee in a collision with 6-8 forward
Butch Wade, according to assistant
coach Steve Fisher.
Frieder and team physician Dr.
Jerry O'Connor decided to go ahead
with the surgery, the fifth-year coach
said, when swelling in the knee did not
subside. "There's still some
swelling," he said, "and it's been
almost a week since it happened."
If the exploratory surgery shows a
more severe injury than a hyperex-
tension and Tarpley is out longer than

expected, Frieder has not yet deter-
mined a replacement. "We'll have to
go out and find ourselves a center," he
The most likely choice is Robert
Henderson. The 6-9 senior averaged
five points and 4.2 rebounds per game
last season. Tarpley notched 19.3
points and 10.3 rebounds for the Big
Ten champion Wolverines.
Michigan's success last season was
partly due to lack of injuries, Frieder
said earlier in the week. "Last year
we had great luck," he said. "We
were injury free."
Practice began two weeks ago, and
the Wolverines tip-off the season at
the Chaminade Hawaiian Tour-
nament, November 22 and 23, in Maui.

Mass., Thanksgiving weekend for the

Icers spl'it with Falcons

Michigan's hockey team played its
best hockey of the season over the
weekend with Bowling Green, earning
a split with the seventh-ranked
Falcons. It was lucky, however, the
split was in games instead of heads or
The Wolverines outhustled and out-
chanced BG Friday night in a 7-5 win.
Saturday, with the teams moving
from Yost to BG's State Ice Arena, the
Falcons scored six second-period
unanswered goals en route to a 11-5
blowout. But what concerned head
coach Red Berenson after Saturday
night's loss was not the score.
"(FRESHMAN defenseman) Myles
O'Connor was deliberately speared
and (junior center) Brad Jones was
two-handed," said an angry but calm
Berenson after Saturday's contest.
"Last night Jones was speared, and
they just happen to be two of our best
players. And don't anyone tell you it
wasn't premeditated or planned."
O'Connor was decked by BG's Mike
Lori in the stomach late in the second
period in retaliation for Michigan's
Chris Seychel's apparent spear to BG's
Brian Meharry on Friday. Lori had
nailed Brad Jones earlier in Friday
night's game.
Despite the muggings and Satur-
day's score, Berenson was satisfied
with the Wolverines'. weekend.
"Overall it was a good weekend,"
said Berenson, who saw his team's
record go to 3-3. "I don't think that
tonight's score should ruin our
weekend. We played a good game last
night and a good first period tonight."
Michigan tightened its much-

maligned defense Friday night, effec-
tively neutralizing BG's high scoring
tandem of Jamie Wansbrough and
Paul Ysebaert. Last season the two
scored a combined 125 points, but only
managed one assist and no goals
Brad Jones continued his assault on
opposing goalies, scoring three goals

and three assists. Jones survived the
spear by Lori to score the game win-
ner with only 1:58 left in the game to
break a 5-5 tie. Forward Tom Stiles
passed the puck from behind the net to
right wing Billy Powers, who in turn
dropped a pass in front of the net to
the onrushing Jones. Jones blasted a
shot past BG goalie Dan Kwilas, who
started in place of an injured Gary
"I got caught in the defensive zone,
and busted right down the zone when I
saw the opening," said Jones, who
completed his second career hat trick
with the game-winner.
Because of the talent on Bowling
Green, Michigan knew it had to play
tight hockey with little room for error,
which is exactly what it did. The
Wolverines capitalized on power


plays (3 for 6), kept Bowling Green
from scoring on its power plays (3 for
9), and kept the game close (BG's
largest lead was one goal). Freshman
center Todd Brost had an excellent
game in leading the penalty-killing
unit, and captain Frank Downing,
who was moved up to the first line to
shore up the defense, ended up scoring
two goals.
Needless to say, it was the best
three periods of hockey Michigan has
put together in the young season.
And after one period Saturday
night, no one would have questioned
the possibility of a Michigan sweep.
The Wolverines excelled, taking a 1-0
lead on a Brad Jones slap shot at
Then the Falcons woke up and the
game turned into a slugfest.
Only 39 seconds into the period,
BG's Brian McKee scored on a
screened Bob Lindgren, and less than
a minute later Don Barber stuffed the
puck in the corner of the cage to give
the Falcons the lead for good. Before
the period had ended, BG had scored
seven times, and Michigan only twice.
Like the weekend previous with
Ferris State, Michigan fell far behind
and was left clutching at straws.
If all the second period scoring
became monotonous, then the hit-and-
run - stickhandling of Mark Lori was
not. The Bowling Green right wing left
Myles O'Connor gasping for air,
sprawling on the ice as the result of
Lori's handiwork.
"Both of us were skating out
together and he turned around and
gave me a good jab right in the mid-
section," said freshman O'Connor,
who has had a most pleasant start in
colkgiate hockey. °"I thought I was
going to throw up; I was kind of dry-
heaving out there."
The Falcons added four goals in the
third period and Michigan two to close
out the scoring, and the Wolverines
headed home with a split and some
bruises to boot.

Detroit drowns Dolphins


Special to the Daily
APONTIAC - The schedule maker did not smile on the
Detroit Lions this season. When first-year coach Darryl
Rogers discovered Super Bowl Champion San Francisco
49ers and AFC Champion Miami Dolphins back-to-back in
October, he probably lost several nights' sleep.
Well, Rogers will sleep like a baby this week after his
Lns dumped the Dolphins yesterday at the Silverdome,
31-21, to complete a sweep of the Super Bowl combatants.
DETROIT'S offense was almost as superb as Miami's
11efense was porous. Lion running back James Jones
grined out 114 yards on a team-record-tying 36 carries.
'In the airwars, Eric Hipple soared over Dan Marino.
Ijipple completed 14 of 19 passes, mostly to Leonard
Thompson and Mark Nichols, for 239 yards. Marino was 23
-for 44, for 247 yards, but his receivers dropped six tosses.
Trailing 24-14 at half time, Miami got back in the game
ini the third quarter. Hipple was back to pass on a second-
down play from Detroit's 13-yard line, when he was
leveled from the blind side by Dolphin nose tackle Mike
Charles. The ball popped loose, and Miami linebacker Bob

Brudzinski scooped it up and dashed seven yards for a
THE LIONS recovered their 10-point advantage on a
long drive that the referees made even longer. Detroit
scored 17 points on the march, but only seven counted. On
the opening play of the final quarter, Hipple found Thom-
pson in the end zone, but a holding penalty negated the
TD. The Dolphins stopped the Lions on the next three
plays, forcing Eddie Murray to kick a 30-yard field goal.
But. a yellow hanky wiped that out. Rogers chose to
take the points off the board when the Dolphins were
penalized for holding. The Lions accepted the automatic
first down at the Miami seven. Jones powered over from
the half-yard line on third and goal.
The Lions scored every time they touched the ball in the
first half. Jones's slashing, off-tackle runs and Hipple's
completions to Thompson and Nichols on short crossing
patterns led the home team to 10-0 first quarter lead.
Miami tight end Joe Rose did the bulk of the work on the
Dolphins' first scoring drive. Rose caught two key third-
down Marino aerials, and was rewarded with the score, on
a 19-yard reception over the middle.
