Yount wins second MVP
NEW YORK (AP) - Robin
Yount, the major league hit leader of
the 1980s, was named American
League Most Valuable Player for the
second time this decade on Monday,
winning in a year when there was no
"I appreciate the award and thank
the baseball writers for their votes,"
Yount, vacationing in Hawaii, said.
"It's always nice to be recognized,
but I want everyone to realize that
this award is also for my teammates,
the organization and the great fans of
Yount, 34, got 1,731 hits this
decade, led the majors with 337
doubles in the 1980s, and has come
to represent all-around consistency.
Yount won in 1982 as a short-
stop and this season as a center
fielder for the Milwaukee Brewers.
He joined Stan Musial and Hank
Greenberg as the only players to be
MVPs at two different positions and
became the first AL winner to play
on a team without a winning record.
Yount batted .318, hit 21 homers
and drove in 103 runs as Milwaukee
went 81-81. He received eight first-
place votes for a total of 256 points,
and was the only player named on all
28 ballots by members of the
Baseball Writers' Association of
Texas' Rubin Sierra, who batted
.306 with 29 home runs and a
league-leading 119 RBIs, was second
with six first-place votes for a total
of 228 points. Sierra, whose team
finished fourth - as did Milwaukee
- also led the league with a .543
slugging percentage, 78 extra-base
hits and 344 total bases.
Baltimore's Cal Ripken was third
with six first-place votes and 215
points. He hit .257 with 21 homersl
and 93 RBIs in helping the sur-
prising Orioles challenge for the AL
George Bell, a former MVP like
Ripken, finished fourth with four
first-place votes and 205 points. He
batted .297 with 18 home runs and
104 RBIs for AL champion Toronto.
Dennis Eckersley, who finished
fifth with 116 points, and Carney
Lansford, who wound up 17th,
received the other first-place votes.
Both play for the World Series
champion Oakland Athletics.
The National League MVP will
be announced Tuesday.

Senior co-captain Mike Moes feels that the Michigan hockey team's problems can be solved by playing "60
minutes of tough hockey."

Four unanswered third period goals by Ohio State
Sunday afternoon continued the third period problems
Michigan has encountered many times this season.
With the score tied at 3-3, the Wolverines and
Buckeyes took the ice for the final 20 minutes. Ohio
State responded with four goals on only six shots.
Michigan totalled six shots as well, but had no real
"We were doing everything we wanted to after the
first and second," Michigan coach Red Berenson said.
"But we humiliated ourselves in the third."
Humiliated. That was probably the best word
Berenson could have used to describe the way the
Wolverines looked in that final, decisive period.
Michigan held the momentum at the end of the second
period and it appeared this would carry over and propel
the Wolverines to a weekend split.
The beginning of the end for Michigan came when
Buckeye right winger Jeff Ladrow scored 2:36 into the
third. Ohio State dominated play as the Wolverines
appeared to be sleep-walking rather than skating with
the intensity present in the final period Friday and the
first two periods Sunday.
"We need to play 60 minutes of tough hockey,"
Michigan senior co-captain Mike Moes said.
And this is exactly what Michigan has lacked
Overall, the Wolverines are 1-5 when either tied or
trailing after the second period buzzer and have been
outscored 17-8 in the third period. The team will need to
make the third period their period if they expect to
woes must cease
fulfill the CCHA coach's pre-season poll to finish in
third place and gain a bid to the NCAA Championships.
"To finish in first place, we have that goal," Moes
said a few weeks ago. "We will try to go all the way to
the NCAA's as we have the talent to do so."
But the talent needs to begin to show consistently
- every game, every period, and every time one jumps
over the boards and takes a shift on the ice.
This does not mean that the Wolverines are lacking
the talent. They have all the parts to put together a
championship team, but these parts need to click
together and work for a full 60 minutes every time, like
that old reliable station car rather than that car that
won't start on cold, winter mornings.
The Wolverines have a balanced scoring attack, with
six different players notching game-winning goals in
the six wins and with no one player running away with
the scoring race. But the Wolverines, who started out
with three wins and a tie, have lost five of their last
eight and need to turn it around soon before the team
confidence sinks deeper than 10,000 leagues under the
"As a team, we're frustrated," Ted Kramer said. "We
need to have a good week of practice and work hard to
get back on top."
Berenson agreed after Sunday's loss. "Now is the
time when the character of the team needs to show."
With nine seniors, the team should find its character
and get back to its winning ways, seen just a couple of
weeks ago. Moes could sum up the recent events
simply - "There's such a fine line between winning
