H ' urst, Med Sox shut d NEW YORK (UPI) - Bruce Hurst's pitching was as brilliant as the harvest moon that shone over chilly Shea Stadium Saturday night in Game 1 of the World Series. The 28-year-old left-hander extended his impressive autumn record and plunged the New York Mets further into their postseason batting slump by pitching the Boston Red Sox to a 1-0 victory. Hurst allowed only four hits over eight innings before yielding to a pinch-hitter when the Red Sox threatened in the ninth. Calvin Schiraldi recorded the last three outs for the save. . A ground ball through the legs of Mets second baseman Tim Teufel in the seventh accounted for the only run and placed the underdog Red Sox in strong position to take a commanding early lead in the best-of-seven Series.

Since September Hurst has a 7-0 record, NWU picks By Curt McKeever Nebraska Wesleyan tight end Ken Glaser said his team was as fired up as it's ever been for Saturday's annual rivalry against Doane College. But what he thought keyed the Plainsmen's 24-14 victory at Abel Stadium was their low-key approach to the pme during the week. "The thing I think we did differently was that hey, we knew this is a big game," Glaser said. "But in the past all week tyng it was like, 'Doane! Doane! i"1 fH By Mike Babcock Nebraska responded like someone who hit the snooze button on an alarm clock to sleep a little longer. Once the third-ranked Cornhuskers woke up from an afternoon nap, long about the second quarter of Saturday's football game with Missouri at Memorial Stadium, It was no contest The final score Nebraska 48, Missouri 17 was enough to shut up just about anyone, including the Tigers, who shook the Cornhuskers awake, according to wingback Dana Brinson. "Missouri came at us, and we didn't have any choice but to get up for the game. They were really hitting hard," Brinson said. And talking .. . "On my first kickoff return, this dude hit me, and he was talking a bunch of 'smack.' I was thinking, 'Man, this is going to be a long day, a looong day,' " said Brinson. "After they made a good play, they were like cursing you." By halftime, after a 20-point second quarter by Nebraska, the Tigers probably were cursing their bad luck. Long day for MU It was a long day, all right "After we started driving the ball and scoring, they kind of shut up and got quiet" Brinson said. "They had to keep their breath to finish up the game." For some reason, the Cornhuskers didn't seem to be fully awake for the opening kickoff. During the pre-game drills, "there wasn't any excitement to be honest" said Brinson. In the locker room just before the kickoff, Stan Parker, an offensive guard and Nebraska captain, "said, 'Fellas, I Offensive line plays favorite hits when Nebraska turns on the power By Ken Hambleton Like a favorite tune, Nebraska power football has a familiar ring. "We can run the finesse. But when you come back down to the old isos and traps, that's when you see our big linemen just pounding on people," said NU fullback Ken Kaelin. "You can just hear it when you run into the line. That popping and crunching." Missouri felt the surge of power as Nebraska rolled up S24 yards in offense in posting a 48-17 victory Saturday afternoon at Memorial Stadium. "We just keep coming and coming and eventually something is going to break loose," Kaelin said. "I did. I ran though. 32 yards as he tied a record he equaled in the Orange Bowl last season. Mike Vachon also kicked four, against Texas in 1966. Jones intercepted a Ronnie Williams pass by stepping in front of intended receiver Thurman Thomas in the flat. Jones skirted down the sideline with 4:32 remaining Oklahoma quarterback Jamelle including a victory in the American League playoffs against California. Hurst and Schiradli turned in the first 1-0 World Series victory since 1972 when Jack Billingham of Cincinnati defeated Oakland. Recent history, strangely enough, is not on Boston's side. The winner of the opening game has lost four of the last five World Series. right time Doane! Let's beat the hell out of them!,' and we were almost wore out by Saturday. "This time, I think we kept it all inside and did our exploding on the field. Before, we exploded on each other during the week and came into the game flat" Because they didnt do that on Saturday, the Plainsmen were able to break Doane's five-year stranglehold over them, and for the first time since he's been at Wesleyan, Coach Orson Chris-tensen walked off the field a winner don't know if this is true; I dont know if this is how you really feel, but you seem flat'" Brinson said, "I thought it was just the pre-game, but when we went out it was the same feeling." -The lethargy lasted until Missouri had taken the opening kickoff and driven 68 yards in 16 plays to take a 3-0 lead on Tom Whellhan's 29-yard field goaL The Tigers scored first and last getting the game's final 14 points. Their problem was what happened in between. "I think the fact that they scored first was the turning point," Nebraska split end Rod Smith said. "That probably helped everybody's perspective." Still, the Cornhuskers stretched and yawned a little before settling down to the business of winning their sixth game in a row. Klein had two field goals Dale Klein, who kicked an NCAA-record seven consecutive field goals against Missouri a year ago, kicked two field goals early in the second quarter to break Nebraska's career record and put the Cornhuskers ahead for good. The record-breaker, the 23rd of Klein's career, came from 44 yards out with 14:13 remaining in the first half. His 24th, a 21-yarder, came less than three minutes later, on an offensive series initiated by John Custard's fumble recovery at the Missouri 31-yard line. Custard, a redshirted sophomore cor-nerback, started for the first time in his career, replacing senior Brian Davis, who didnt suit up for the game. "That's a matter between Brian and myself. It wasnt any injury problem," See HUSKERS on page 60 one of those holes Micah Heibel talked about a week or so ago. He said any bozo, could run through holes like that. "Tyreese Knox has great ability and he had a great hole to run through," Kaelin said of Knox's 92-yard run. Knox said that his switch from fullback to I-back helped him see the holes better. "At I-back you can see they were really clearing people out of there." I-back Keith Jones was impressed, too. "It's getting so we don't even get touched sometimes. I just walked in on my second touchdown," he said. The key that turned the power on was the improved blocking and depth on the offensive line, Husker tackle Tom Wei-. tersaid. still prevails 19-0; Holieway, who had just 19 yards on 15 carries in the first half, wound up leading the Sooners with 97 yards on 21 carries.

I feel like I played," the fifth-year NWU coach said after his team raised its record to 3-3 overall and 2-0 in the Nebraska Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. "As long as I've been coaching, I've probably never had an opponent that I'd lost to like Doane, and I guess I'm thankful for not having that burden on my shoulders anymore.
