Green drove in another run with a
sacrifice fly and Landrum banged
home two more runs with a double
down the third base line.
San Francisco manager Frank
Robinson yanked Hammaker after a
heated exchange with third base um-
pire Lee Weyer, with Robinson arguing
futilely that Landrum's slicing liner
landed in foul territory.
Fred Breining relieved and im-
mediately yielded a double to Glenn
Brummer. It drove home Landrum
with the final run of the inning and gave
St. Louis a 5-0 lead.

two runs in the bottom of the first on
RBI singles by Chili Davis and Reggie
Smith. The Cardinals moved ahead 6-2

single, which followed hits by Lonnie

Thinclads shoot for
By RON POLLACK
Usually a coach stresses team goals
over individual ones. But Michigan
women s track coach Francie
Goodridge is doing the exact opposite
for the AIAW National Championships
which are being held today through
Michigan had several performers
qualify for this meet, but rather than
compete in the team competition, the
Wolverine participants will try for in-
dividual titles instead.
"THERE WAS a shot for us to do well
as a team in the meet, but we made the
decision to go individual and try for in-
dividual titles in the different events,"
said Goodridge. "All our entries have a
good shot at winning the title. Not only
do (Penny) Neer and (Debra) Williams
have an excellent chance, but Sue
(Frederick) has improved all season
and (Joanna) Bullard was the high
jump champ in the Big Ten for both in-
doors and outdoors.
"I think Melanie (Weaver) is
definitely one of the best at 10,000 and
Lisa (Larsen) has been coming on real
strong, so we'll have a good shot at
some titles. We decided to go individual
championships instead of team because
some of the girls would have had to
have run in several events instead of
just their specialty event."
Of the Michigan participants in the
AIAW's, four individuals and one relay
team took first place finishes at last
week's Big Ten Championships.
IN THE discus, Neer took first place
with a throw of 178'6". She also came in
fourth in the shot put. She will compete
in both events at the AIAWs.
Another conference champion for
Michigan was Williams, who won in the
javelin competition with a toss of
157'1". This was her fourth straight Big-
Ten title, making her the only woman
ever to do so.
The Wolverines got yet another first-
place finish in the field events from
Bullard in the high jump. The Ann Ar-
bor native took the title with a jump of
5'10", a new Big Ten record.
MICHIGAN GOT its other individual
title in the 10,000-meter run, where
Weaver won with a time of 35:14.2.
The only relay victory garnered by
Michigan took place in the 4x100-meter
relay. The quartet of Renee Turner,
Brenda Kazinec, Lorrie Thornton and
Catherine Sharpe won in a new Big Ten
record time of 45.99. These four runners
will team up to run both the 4x100 relay
and sprint medley.
Michigan's other entrants in the
AIAW National Championships include
Melody Middleton (heptathalon),
Frederick (1,500 meters), Larson (3,000
meters) and Kazinec (200 meters).
