ORIOLES EVEN UP KEY SERIES
Flanagan shuts out Tigers, 4-0
BALTIMORE (AP) - Like a
mailman on his appointed rounds, Mike
Flanagan was able to deliver despite
scorching 92-degree weather.
"I've pitched in snow...in rain...in
heat...you just try not to think about it,"
Flanagan said after he allowed seven
hits and hurled the Baltimore Orioles to
a 4-0 victory over the Detroit Tigers
"I THINK ABOUT it between in-
nings," Flanagan finally admitted,
"but not when I'm out on the mound. I
pitched in 114-degree temperature in
Kansas City one time."
Flanagan noted that because the
game was on network television, there
was a mandatory two-minute break
between half innings, allowing more
time to remain in the cool clubhouse
before venturing onto the field.
The 32-year-old left-hander said he
felt the worst after sitting outa long in-
ning as the Orioles scored three runs in
the sixth and the Tigers made two pit-
"BUT," he said, "I'll take three runs
and a 40-minute inning anytime."
Two of the runs in the rally scored on
a bases-loaded single by John Lowen-

the slumping Tigers, but they still enjoy

FLANAGAN, 5-4, retired 13 of the first

the fifth inning. Lowenstein made a fine
catch of a liner by Tom Brookens to left

If yesterday's NHL draft is any in-
dication, the Michigan hockey team
should have the best incoming fresh-
man class its seen in several years.
Two players who signed letters of in-
tent to play for the Wolverines this fall,
Jeff Norton and Gary Lorden, had been
picked by NHL teams through the
middle rounds of the draft.
NORTON, A defenseman from Acton,
Mass. was the second player chosen in
the third round and went to the New
York Islanders. "I'm excited and sur-
prised," said Norton from his home
last night. "I talked to teams before the
draft but I could never picture it ac-

pecting to hear from.
"It's surprising (getting picked by
New York). I talked to L.A., the Bruins
and Calgary," said the 6-2 Team
Massachusetts member. "New York is
a surprise, but any team sounds good."
LORDEN, another defenseman, was
chosen in the sixth round, which was
about where he was expected to be
"I heard rumors about going in the
sixth or seventh rounds before the
draft," said the Warrick, Rhode Island
native, who added that he intended all
along to delay the pro career to attend
