The Michigan lacrosse club,
under coach Bob DiGiovanni, began
its fall schedule of exhibition games
with an easy victory over Oberlin
College on Friday night at Tartan
Turf. The team, which returns 17
seniors this year, handed Oberlin a
deceptively close 13-11 defeat.
Junior Marc Silbergeld had a
standout game for the Wolverines
with two goals and an assist, and tri-
captains Michael Kennedy, John
Paul, and Tim Reilly combined for
Key defensive play came from
sophomores Kenny Nick and Alex
Puciariello. Sophomore goalie Pete
McPartlin, who started because goal-
ie Rob DiGiovanni was absent, also
played well defensively.
After jumping out to an early
lead, the Wolverines managed to
work in all players on the 55 mem-
ber team- including several first-
year players. Dave Morath and Ed
Honos scored goals for the Wolver-
ines while B.J Bardy turned in

Schembechler didn't have the option
of using senior Micheal Taylor.

practice, particularly at the skill po-

said. "This is an important week of

"We run two teams, two plays a
minute and Grbac will run one team,
Taylor the other," Schembechler
said. "Taylor will be at full-strength
for this game."
While Taylor works out, Grbac
will play. Schembechler expects to
see more of the Grbac that engin-
eered the comeback win over UCLA,
as opposed to the Grbac that strug-
gled with Wisconsin.
"It wasn't entirely the players
fault. I think we coaches did a poor
job in preparing them for the
Wisconsin game," Schembechler
said when trying to explain the poor
offensive showing. "Had Wisconsin
had a better offensive day, we'd have
been in trouble."
Schembechler did ease off on his
critism of the defense, which had
seemingly performed well in the win
over the Badgers.
"It would be hard to find fault
with a defense that gives up seven
first downs and 90 or so yards,"
Schembechler said. "If we hadn't
turned the ball over, they probably
wouldn't have crossed our 50. So

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The
San Francisco Giants got the ultim-
ate Thrill from Will and the Bay
Area got its ultimate World Series.
Will Clark's bases-loaded single
with two outs in the eighth inning
gave the Giants a 3-2 victory over
the Chicago Cubs and the National
League pennant Monday and set up a
Bay Bridge Series starting Saturday
night at the Oakland Athletics.
Clark, in one of the greatest
postseason performances ever, set an
NL playoff record with 13 hits and
24 total bases. His single to center
off Cubs ace reliever Mitch Wil-
liams gave the Giants their first pen-
nant since 1962, four games to one.
The Cubs, though, fought until
the end. With two out in the ninth
inning, Giants reliever Steve Bed-
rosian gave up three straight singles
and a run before retiring Ryne Sand-
berg on a grounder to second.
Starter Mike Bielecki, who
allowed only three hits in seven 2/3
innings, walked pinch-hitter Candy
Maldonaldo, Brett Butler and Robby
Thompson, with two outs in the
eighth to load the bases. Clark had
eight RBIs in the series.
It was yet another disappointing
loss for the Cubs, who have not
won a World Series since beating
Detroit in 1908 and have not been to
one since 1945.
It was the 16th NL pennant for
the Giants since the World Series
started in 1903, with 14 coming
when the team played in New York.
The Giants last won a World Series
in 1954 when they swept Cleveland.
It was the first time the Giants
have clinched a title of any kind at
The Giants and Athletics have
met each other three times in the
World Series, with the last coming

Rick Reuschel pitched eight
innings, allowing an unearned run
and seven hits.
Unlike the first four games, the
starting pitchers were in command.
Reuschel, bombed in Game Two
at Chicago, allowed just the tainted
run in the third inning and Bielecki
pitched six scoreless innings before
the Giants tied it.r
Almost predictably, Clark played
the part of hero again for the Giants
and led off the seventh with a triple
into the rightfield corner.
Kevin Mitchell followed with a
sacrifice fly to deep center field,
tying the score.
The Cubs had runners at first and
third in the eighth with two outs,
but Reuschel got Andre Dawson to
hit a grounder back to the mound,
increasing to 14 the number of run-
ners he left on base in the series.
With one out in the third, Mitch-
ell lost Walton's high fly to left in
the sun for a two-base error.
Mitchell had his sunglasses on
but did not flip them down. The ball
glanced off his glove and bounced a
few feet away.
Sandberg followed with an
opposite-field RBI double, but was
thrown out trying to stretch the hit
into a triple.
For the third straight day, the
conditions were ideal at Candlestick
Park. The game started at 12:07
p.m. in 78-degree temperatures under
a brilliant sun.
The battle for the record book
between Clark and Mark Grace made
for a nice sideshow.
In the sixth inning, Grace singled
for his second hit of the game and
11th of the series.
Walton led off the game Monday
with a single, and Grace singled him
to third with two outs. But Reuschel
struck out Dawson to end the

The Giants threatened in the fifth
when Matt Williams got to third
with one out.
Williams led off the inning with
an infield single and moved to sec-
ond when shortstop Shawon Dun-
ston's throw got away from Grace at
first. One out later, Williams moved
to third on a passed ball.
But Bielecki struck out Pat
Sheridan and got Jose Uribe on a
shallow fly to left.
