DETROIT - After an 0-3 start to
their season, the Detroit Tigers;
convincingly won their home opener
over the Red Sox , 11-7.
Free-agent acquisition Tonyi
Phillips played a major role in the
victory as he reached base all five7
times with four singles and a walk.
He also scored two and drove in threei
runs making the leadoff position theI
most productive spot for the Tigers.
Phillips had been just 2-for-14 to
start the season.
In all, the Tigers pounded out 13
hits against Boston's rookie pitcher
Mike Rochford, with AlanI
Trammell, Lloyd Moseby, and LouI
Whitaker getting two apiece.s I
On the mound the Tigers were
less effective. Starter Frank Tanana1

_was pulled after four and 2/3 inningĀ§
and was not eligible for the win. In
total, Tanana gave up nine hits and
five runs and struck out three. New
Tiger Urbano Lugo pitched the next
three and 1/3 innings for the win,
surrendering only two hits and one
run.
The Red Sox scored in the first
inning to take a 1-0 lead when Marty
Barrett singled, stole second, and
scored on Ellis Burks' single to left.
Then Detroit scored ten runs in
the first three innings as the Tigers
were able to capitalize on the six
walks issued in that time span by
three different Boston pitchers.
Phillips singled in each of the first
three innings and Whitaker hit a
two-run homerain the first which
gave Detroit the lead for good.

Surging got

Daily Sports Writer

After its most inspiring
performance of the spring season last
weekend at the Purdue Invitational,
the Michigan men's golf team
moves on to Huntington, West
Virginia on Saturday for the Mar-
shall Intercollegiate Tournament.
The tournament-is scheduled for
36 holes on Friday and 18 holes on
Saturday. But with the disastrous
weather conditions that have
seemingly followed this team week
after week, stay tuned.
Among the 18-team field will be
Ohio State, whom coach Jim Carras
-k a S .
F]
-, a- --L

ferii putter
Wst Virginia
describes as the premiere team in the
district, as well as Kent State,
Illinois, Marshall, Miami of Ohio,
and Wright State.
"This is our biggest test of the
spring so far," Carras said. "Our
objective, like always, is to place in
the top half of the field, and to be
very competitive."
Shaking up the lineup this past
weekend seemed to work and Carras
will continue to do so by bringing
back freshman James Carson, who
did not play last week.
"I think we'll do well again. We
have historically done well on this
course and the team is anxious and
ready to go," Carras said. "I look for
this team to continually improve."
Along this line of optimism,
senior captain Tom Paton came out
with a bold prediction. "Someone
will shoot one round under par this
weekend. I don't know who it will
be, but it's going to happen. This
team is really pushing each other and
we are fully prepared," he said.

The closest race in the American
League West this season will be
between Oakland and California -
for second place. Kansas City will
sprint away with the division title.
1. KANSAS CITY ROYALS
Two off-season moves will help
the Royals end Oakland's reign of
terror. The front office closed its
bank account to grab NL standouts,
Gerald Perry and Cy Young Award
winner Mark Davis.
The American League has seldom
seen a team with four potential 20-
game winners and a closer capable of
50 saves. Saberhagen, Gubicza and
Co. may form half the AL All-Star
pitching staff. The Royals' defense
is second to none. Up the middle,
Bob Boone, Frank White, and Willie
Wilson have all won Gold Gloves.
The bats of Bo Jackson and
Danny Tartabull need only resemble
the Bay Bombers for KC to
dominate.
2. OAKLAND ATHLETICS
This team has been living a
charmed life, and is due for a splash
of reality.
Baseball success depends on
pitching and injuries. The pitching
mound and the training room will be
extremely busy at the Coliseum.
The three vital players on this
team are Stewart, Eckersley, and
Rickey Henderson. If either of these
three get hurt, the season is over.
Oakland's offense is legendary, but
its brigade hits only from the right
side of the plate. The Royal's right-
handed staff will give them their first
fight in three years.
3. CALIFORNIA ANGELS
Stop me if this sounds familiar;
the Angels have a knockout starting
rotation, but the offense is anemic.
Langston, Abbot, Blyleven, and
McCaskill will rarely give up more
than three runs. Despite Wally
Joyner, the offense will be lucky to
score two. But the fantastic Anaheim
hurlers are backed up by a warehouse
full of Gold Gloves - so don't be

Two years ago, the Mariners got
into the AL West elevator at the
ground floor. They will catch their
breath on the fourth floor this year,
but the youngsters don't intend to
stay long.
CF Ken Griffey, Jr., C Dave
Valle, and stopper Mike Schooler
will eventually be perennial All-
Stars.
Manager Jim Lefebvre needs only
six innings from his struggling
starters to reach a splendid bullpen.
After years of abuse, Seattle is
finally moving up in the world.
5. MINNESOTA TWINS

staff are Allan Anderson and Rick

1. SAN DIEGO - San Diego's
"Trader" Jack McKeon lived up to
his name this year. He let reliever
Mark Davis pack up his Cy Young
Award and head to Kansas City.
McKeon instead spent his money on
Cleveland's Joe Carter in the biggest
deal of the offseason.
While few can collect saves the
way Davis did, fewer still can hit 35-
plus homers and drive in more than
100 runs every season the way
Carter did. And that was with the
Indians.
Now with Tony Gwynn on base
ahead of him every day and Jack
Clark waiting on deck, Carter should
be able to do as he pleases.

4. LOS ANGELES Do not
expect a lot of high-scoring games
from the Dodgers this year. They
could very well lead the league in
team ERA again, but they could also
finish last in batting average.
With Kirk Gibson still injured
and Mike Marshall playing for the
Mets they will be seriously lacking
in power unless Hubie Brooks, Eddie
Murray, and Juan Samuel can come
through with huge years.

third baseman Matt Williams burst W
on to the scene. Another recruit for
the Pacific Sock Exchange. Run for
your lives! Add in free-agent Kevin
Bass and it becomes the most
formidable lineup in baseball.
But San Franciszo might need
even more offense if Caig is unable
to pull off the same magic with the
Giants decrepit pitching staff.
Rick Reuschel can't expect to
fool batters - or his body - for
ever. Also, Don Robinson had knee
surgery again this winter and
perennial prospect Kelly Downs is
out for three months following a
recent shoulder operation.

Aguilera, your wheels are just
waiting to fall off. The best pitching
you'll see in the Metrodome this
year is manager Tom Kelly throwing
batting practice.
It's no secret that the offense is a
powerhouse. Since 1985,
superhuman Kirby Puckett has been
the most consistent player in the
league. But the Twins will lose too
many 10-8 games.
The Twins have had their backs
up against the AL West wall since
its championship in 1987.
6. CHICAGO WHITE SOX
Chicago is at the same stage that
the Cubs were two years ago. The
White Sox have a few promising
young pitchers with a good but
inexperienced bench.
7. TEXAS RANGERS
The Rangers have three All-Stars,
including the incomparable Ruben
Sierra, but the remaining 22 players
would be playing AAA ball for most
organizations.

The rest of the team should be
nearly as solid. Rookie fireballer
Andy Benes will join Bruce Hurst, a
legitimate Cy Young hopeful, for a
full season. Those two will rack up
a lot of wins and San Diego will
win the division.
2. CINCINNATI - The Reds
will make its own push for the
pennant this fall if Eric Davis' new
$9.3 million salary keeps him happy
and if the rest of the lineup can stay
healthy.
Danny Jackson and Jose Rijo are
back from injuries to join workhorse
Tom Browning and a host of young-
sters on the pitching staff. They'll
just need their offense, which was
decimated by injuries in 1989, to
score some runs for them.
And maybe the Reds' problems
of past years will disappear now that
Pete Rose has taken his act to the
home shopping network.
3. SAN FRANCISCO - The
worst fears of the rest of the division
were realized last year when young

0

S. ATLANTA - An outstanding
bunch of young pitchers might keep
the never-say-die Atlanta Braves out
of last place.
John Smoltz, Derek Lilliquist,
and Tom Glavine are all promising
starters. In the bullpen, the Braves
will no longer have to rely on Joe
Boever, etc., because of rookie closer
Mike Stanton.
Offensively, the bright spots will
be few. They will need a
superhuman effort from newly
acquired Nick Esasky, because Dale
Murphy is washed up and Comeback
Player-of-the-Year Lonnie Smith
showed up at spring training
weighing 230 pounds. He is only
5'9" tall. He is fat.
6. HOUSTON - Mike Scott and
Dave Smith will both try for repeat
performances of last year, but as is
the case with much of the team, they
might be getting too old.
