'M GKEELEY (Cote.) TRIBUNE Thurs., April M, 1973 Wood blanks Yankees, 3-0 By KEN RAPPOPORT Associated Prets Sports Writer Wilbur Wood cut the corners of the plate, doling out a starvation diet to the New York Yankees. They went away hungry while the Chicago White Sox star fattened his pitching record. "I get paid to get somebody out and that's what I do," said · Wood, who got most everbody out in a five-hit, 3-0 beauty over the Yankees Wednesday. Wood frustrated the Yankee hitters with a knuckleball that went berserk at times. It was helped along by the weather, according to New York Manager Ralph Houk. "Today was a good day for him, the dead air and the dampness," said Houk. "That helps him. His knuckleball was really bouncing around today." In the other American League games, the Boston Red Sox nipped the Minnesota Twins 4-3; the Texas Rangers trimmed the Detroit Tigers 4-1; the Kansas City Royals turned back the Milwaukee Brewers 32; the California Angels defeated the Baltimore Orioles 1-0 and the the Cleveland Indians trimmed (he Oakland A's 1-0. porled Steve Foucault's clutch National league scores: Cin- pitching as Texas whipped De- cinnati 7, Montreal 4; San troit.

After seven years at Northern, Jorgensen resigned last monlh, announcing, "I've lost my enthusiasm for coaching and want to go into business." There was no question lhat Luck would replace him, becoming one of about nine blacks in the nalion to hold head coaching jobs at major universities. Three of Ihem are in Illinois--Luck, Will Robinson of Illinois Stale and Walt Moore of Western Illinois. "Nobody else ever was considered and Jorgcnsen didn't hesitate to recommend Dr. Luck," says Athletic Director Rob Brigham. Luck says, "The most important phase of the job is recruiting and handling Ihe players. It never dawned on me that I wouldn't replace Jorgy as head coach. But if I can't cut coaching Ihcn I'll go someplace else. I know they didn't hire me to be mediocre.
