Milwaukee edges Detroit, 3-2

By JIM DWORMAN
Specialtothe Daly
DETROIT - Dave Tobik must be
wondering "what did he do that I didn't
do?"
The Tiger reliever's eleventh inning
performance was as good as
Milwaukee's bullpen ace Rollie
Finger's, but when the game ended
Tobik walked off the mound with a loss
while Fingers was credited with a save.
THE BREWERS scored an unearned
run off Tobik with two outs in the
eleventh to take a 3-2 victory from the
Tigers.
Tobik, coming in for Tiger starter
Dan Petry to begin the second extra in-
ning, yielded only one hit, a two-out
triole to Milwaukee catcher Ed Yost,

but that hit was all the Brewers needed.
After an intentional walk to Ben
Oglivie, Milwaukee's Gorman Thomas
bounced a one hopper off the chest of
Tiger Shortstop Alan Tammell to score
Yost and give his team its final margin
of victory.
Fingers, who also came in to start the
eleventh, was blasted immediately. Un-
fortunately for the Tigers, Jerry Tur-
ner's shot travelled to straight away
center field, 430-feet away from home
plate, where it was caught by Thomas.
Kirk Gibson hit a two-out single off
Fingers, but the 1981 Fireman of the
Year struck out Lance Parrish to end
the game.
Parrish gave the Tigers an early ad-
vantage when he led off the second in-
ning by knocking a Mike Caldwell
delivery off the facing of the upper deck
in right.
But the Brewers waisted no time in
tying things up. Jim Gantner opened
the third with a double and one out alter
trotted home on a Paul Molitor single.
The Tigers other run came on Mike
Ivie's home run in the seventh.
White Sox 11, A's 7
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Tony Ber-
nazard and Steve Kemp knocked in
seven runs between them as Chicago
mounted a 16-hit attack to defeat the
Oakland A's 11-7 yesterday afternoon
for a three-game series sweep.
Bernazard, who committed three
errors at secnd base, hammered a
three-run double and scored in a four-
run third inning. He singled home his
fourth run in the fourth and scored

again on Kemp's double.
KEMP SINGLED in two of the White
Sox's three runs in the fifth.
Steve Trout, 5-5, had a three-hitter for
Chicago when he ran into trouble in the
seventh. He loaded the bases on a
single and two walks, then gave up a
two-run single to Dwayne Murphy.
Reliever Eddie Solomon was touched
for a run-scoring single by Cliff Johnson
as the A's narrowed the deficit to 10-5.
Jeff Newman's two-run homer, his fifth
in the eighth inning made it 10-7.
Mike Norris, 3-6, took the loss. After
loading the bases in the third inning on
two singles and a walk, he left com-
plaining of a shoulder problem.
Cubs 12, Expos 8
CHICAGO (AP) Bill Buckner, Jay
Johnstone and Bump Wills all homered
and pitcher Randy Martz hit a three-
run double yesterday to lead the
Chicago Cubs to a 12-8 victory over the
Montreal Expos.
The triumph was the fourth straight
for the Cubs, but Martz was unable to
hang around long enough for the victory
which went to reliever Mike Proly, 1-0.
DAVID PALMER,1-1, took the loss.
Buckner had four hits and Johnstone
three, and the two started the scoring in
the first inning.
Johnstone hit his fourth homer of the
season and Buckner followed with a
single, stole second and then went all
the way home on a wild pitch for a 2-0
lead.
MARTZ'S THREE-run double keyed
a six-run third in which Johnstone and
Buckner each singled in a run.

Wills hit his fourth homer of the year
in the fifth and Johnstone followed with
a single and scored off Buckner's
homer, his third of the season.
Ryne Sandberg singled in Larry
Bowa, who had tripled, eighth.
Reds 4, Giants 2
CINCINNATI (AP)- Cesar Cedeno
drove in two runs with a first-inning
double and Eddie Milner batted in one
and scored another in the second,
leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 4-2 vic-
tory over the San Francisco Giants
yesterday.
Charlie Leibrandt, 3-1, making his
first start since May 17, was the winner.
Rich Gale, 2-6, was the loser.
LEIBRANDT won his last start, but
since then has been working from the
bullpen and did not have a decision in
seven appearances. Tom Hume
relieved in the eighth and earned his
14th save.
Rafael Landestoy walked and Dave
Concepcion singled, and both scored on
Cedeno's first inning double high off the
wall in left-center field. The Reds added
two more runs in the second when
Milner singled in Ron Oester, then
scored on Concepcion's single down the
right field line.
San Francisco got a run in the second
when Duane Kuiper doubled to lead off
the inning, went to third on a sacrifice
bunt and scored on Chili Davis' ground
out. The Giants scored again in the
third when Gale led off with a double
and came home two outs later when
Davis doubled to the right field corner.

Uzelac rejoins 'M' grid staff

Elliot Uzelac, the Michigan football team's offen-
sive line coach from 1973-74 and head coach of
Western Michigan from 1975-1981, has rejoined the
Wolverine football staff.
A vacancy on the staff was created when former
defensive coordinator Bill McCartney accepted the
head coaching job at the University of Colorado last
week:
Uzelac's contract at Western Michigan wasnot
renewed for this season after the Broncos compiled a
6-5 record during the 1981 campaign.
Following his dismissal from Western, Uzelac
became the offensive coordinator for North Carolina
State and served in that capacity during spring prac-
tice sessions.
Georgia in trouble
ATHENS, Ga. (AP)- The football scholarship
given to one of Georgia's top recruits, 6-foot-2, 240-
pound George Smith of Coffee County High School,
has been invalidated because of "technical recruiting
violations," Bulldogs football Coach Vince Dooley
said Wednesday night.
Dooley said he asked Southeastern Conference
Commissioner Boyd McWhorter to invalidate the
scholarship.

"THE UNIVERSITY of Georgia, as well as the
NCAA, have been conducting formal inquiries into
the recruiting of this one student athlete only, and we
think it is in the best interest of all concerned that no
further comment from the University of Georgia be.
made until all of the inquiries have been completed
and the situation properly addressed," Dooley said in
a statement.
Smith, a fullback, tight end and linebacker who
runs a 4.7-second 40-yard dash, is rated among the
state's top prospects and was listed the second best
player in Georgia by The Atlanta Constitution.
When reached for further comment, Dooley said,
"I really can't say anything more about the matter at
this time. It's just one of those things and I hate it."
When asked about the possibility of NCAA
disciplinary action against Georgia, Dooley said,
"There's no way I can know anything about that now.
I think the matter will be resolved as quickly as
possible."
Smith, reached at his home, said, "I didn't do
anything illegal and it's not my intention that the
University of Georgia gets in trouble with the NCAA.
I hope they don't. But I never was 100 percent sure
that I wanted to go to Georgia and I guess by the fact
he released me, Coach Dooley must not want anyone
at Georgia who really doesn't want to be there."

sonics for forward Wally Walker and the Sonics' first-
