The Orioles have beaten Milwaukee in 10 of the teams' last 11 meetings the exception having been the Brewers' 10-2 victory which clinched the division championship in Baltimore last Oct. 2.

"I want everyone to know I'll come back next season and will do my best to live up to this award," Cummings said after receiving his rookie of the year trophy Wednesday. Cummings already had established his strong rookie-of-the-year credentials for the Clippers 23.7 points and 10.6 rebounds per game when heartbeat irregularities were discovered early in April. The San Diego forward missed the last two weeks of the regular season and there were whispers that his career might be over. Til definitely be back," Cummings said. "Some of the doctors say I might be at only 10 percent (effectiveness), but I believe I can play to my full potentiaL" Cummings said doctors aren't sure what caused bis heart problems, and his treatment, for now consists of a special diet "I'll be a Little smarter now and eat more fruits and vegetables and broiled foods," Cummings said.

In its first year as a member of the NAIA, it has won the national all-sports championship. The Blugolds scored 131 points to 100 for state rival and runner-up Marquette. Adams State, Colo., was third with 95 while Simon Fraser, British Columbia, was fourth with 90. Rounding out the top 10 were Prairie View A&M, Texas; Emporia. Kan.,; Centenary, La.; UW- Pack prefers Milwaukee: Lofton MILWAUKEE (AP) - The Milwaukee Packers? Wide receiver James Lofton says a number of his Green Bay Packer teammates enjoy playing in Milwaukee so much that they would like to make the city the permanent base of operations for the National Football League club that was founded by E.L. "Curly" Lambeau as a town team in Green Bay back in 1919. "This is our favorite trip," Lofton said Wednesday. "The players enjoy feeling they have a big town behind them. "A lot of the players, black and white, would like to be based here, play out of Milwaukee instead of Green Bay," Lofton said. "You have to realize that after four or five years of football you have to be able to blend in some K - w &mt -rwn i t,..wJ D. Johnson fa 1 1 to O termined," the Orioles' Ken Single- ton said. "But the way we played early last year cost us the pennant," he said. c nauicu w Kci a idol siari wis ear. I guess we're doing that. Main E ly, we want to orotect that lead and lengtnen it." "This might top them all," Brewer Manager Harvey Kuenn said. "It probably does, getting a 7-0 lead and losing in extra innings. Baltimore is had a heart problem was "like buying a brand new car and finding out it doesn't work. It was frustrating because I never had problems with my body before." Philadelphia's Moses Malone, in a near-unanimous vote, was named the NBA's 1982-83 Most Valuable Player for the third time at the same awards luncheon. Malone, who was first in th-NBA in rebounding with 15.3 per gam? and was fifth in scoring with an average of 24.5, also was the MVP of the NBA championship series, during which the 76ers swept Los Angeles in four games. 4s- The last player to win both the regular-season and championship series MVP was Kareem Abdul-Jab-bar. who was known as Lew Alcin-dor when he did it in 1971 for the Milwaukee Bucks. Malone. who also won the NBA's MVP award in 1978-79 and 1981-82,-received 69 first-place votes from a nationwide panel of 75 media members. Julius Erving of Philadelphia hid three first-place votes, Earvin "Magic" Johnson of Los Angeles two and Larry Bird one. Bird; however, was second in the voting based on a-10-7-5-3-1 system for first- through fifth-place ballots. Other honors announced were coach of the year Don Nelson of Milwaukee, comeback player of the K w. j.'" ""il.v yf T ft" ' ' ascrS' V!aW Stellpflug Mb Milwaukee; Kearney State, Neb., and Saginaw Valley, Mich. The Blugolds' winning total was earned with a national championship in swimming, a second place in cross country, a ninth in outdoor track, a 12th in gymnastics and a 13th in indoor track. Eau Claire offers a nine-sport program while the NAIA sponsors national championships in nine sports for women. The Blugolds were one of only three schools to score points in five or more events. "It's a tribute to the time and effort both the coaches and athletes where and find a real job. There's a lot less available in Green Bay." Lofton, who has a condominimum in Milwaukee, said he was disappointed to hear the Packers are considering playing a smaller part of their home schedule at Milwaukee County Stadium. Under a proposed contract, the Packers would play at least two regular season games and possibly one exhibition game in Milwaukee per season in 1984 and 1985. The current policy has-tSalled for three or four regular-season games at Milwaukee, on alternating years. Packer management mentioned that coaches and players do not enjoy splitting the home schedule between Green Bay and Milwaukee because playing in Milwaukee was more like a road trip. Cavs win The Eau Claire Cavaliers had eight runs by the third inning Wednesday night at Carson Park, but needed more. ' So with the score tied 8-8, they came up with four runs in the fourth inning en route to knocking off previously unbeaten Stoiken Sports 12-10 before 485 Ladies' night fans. The Cavs started the game-winning rally when John Furrer singled, John Langlois walked and Dave Johnson hit an infield single to score a run, which proved to be the game-winner. Dave Guite followed with an RBI single and Dave Henrickson with a two-run double to finish Cay scoring for the night. Cav starting pitcher Gary Ket-telson lasted just 2 innings while giving up 10 nits and seven earned runs. Dan Larson came on in middle relief for 4Vb innings to raise his record to 4-0. Kurt Stellpflug hurled the final two innings to get the save. The Cavaliers rapped 14 hits with Dave Johnson and Greg Johnson getting three apiece. Stoiken, 9-1, had 17 hits. Stoiken took a 5-1 lead through two riol es doing everything rignt. With the score 7-7, Joe Nolan started the Orioles' 10th by grounding to first baseman Cecil Cooper, who overthrew losing pitcher Bob Gibson, 1-1, covering the bag for a two-base error. A sacrifice and Shelby's single scored the go-ahead run. .Continued on Page 2B of year year Paul Westphal of New York, defensive player of the year Sidney Moncrief of Milwaukee and the "Sixth Man" award-winner, Bobby Jones of Philadelphia. The latter two awards were made for the first time. Cummings easily outpolled Clark Kellogg of Indiana and James Worthy of Los Angeles. The San Diego forward haa 60 first-place votes to 11 for Kellogg and three for Worthy. Moncrief edged Wayne "Tree" Rollins of Atlanta for defensive player of the year, while Jones averaged 9.0 points and 4.6 rebounds off the 76ers' . bench for the "Sixth Man Award." The voting for the other two awards was very close. Nelson, who guided the Bucks to the Central Division title and the Eastern Conference playoff finals, had 19 first-place votes to 17 for Cotton Fitzsimmons of Kansas City, 15 for Billy Cunningham of Philadelphia and 13 for Hubie Brown of New York. - Westphal, who missed parts of two seasons with foot injuries and contract problems, helped the Knicks earn a playoff berth by averaging 10 points and 5.5 assists per game. He had 17 comeback player votes to 15 for John Drew of Utah and 12 for Walter Davis of Phoenix. NAIA title spent in their respective sports," said women's athletic director Judy Kruckman. "It is the ultimate achievement for an athletic program." Eau Claire joined the NAIA for the first time in 1982-83 after their previous national organization, the AIAW, became defunct last summer. The all-sports competition for women was begun by the NAIA three years ago to encourage a well-balanced athletic program. Adams State was the 1982 winner and Kearney State the 1981 champ. Lofton called that idea a "bunch of baloney." "I really think we should play three games in Green Bay, three in Milwaukee and three in Madison," he said. "We're Supposed to be a state team, and Madison is part of the state." He also said he didn't mind playing at Milwaukee County Stadium, despite the fact that the baseball infield is not sodded for football games. "I like the County Stadium field because it's flat," he said. "There's a big. hump in Lambeau Field that makes it almost ridiculous for a passing game." . Rains can turn the stadium infield into a quagmire, as they did in a game with Buffalo Dec. 5, but "it made it seem like old football," Lofton said. slugfest innings then got a three-run home run from designated hitter Gary Jost in the third to lead 8-1. 1 But the Cavs cmae back with a seven-run third to tie the game. Key hits included doubles by Dave Johnson and Furrer and singles by Wilber, Greg Johnson and Langlois as the Cavs batted around. Stoiken rallied for a run with two outs in the ninth. It had the tying runs on base when Stellpflug worked out of the jam by getting Kevin Busch to ground to the shortstop.

Alf, from Eau Claire, won his first 18-hole match 1-up over Tom Hanby of Appleton but lost in the afternoon 4 and 3 to Jim Covelli of Racine. Farley, the 1981 state match play champion out of River Falls, also won in the morning 3 and 2 over Dave Plebanek of Somers. Farley went down in the afternoon also, but not easily. Farley met 1979 meet champion Randy Warobick of West Bend. The two were tied through 18 holes then went to sudden death, teeing off on . No. 1. Both had 12-foot putts on the first hole, but rimmed them out. On the second hole, Farley needed only a three-foot uphill putt to close out Warobick, but couldn't roll it in. Both golfers had missed the green and chipped up. Warobick went five feet above the hole but sank for par. So they went to a third playoff hole, a 190-yard uphill par-three into the wind, both missed the green. Farley was in heavy rough and got the ball 25 feet from the cup. His putt for par came up a few inches short Warobick then made a three-footer for the victory. Both Alf and Farley play regularly in the Chippewa Valley Golf Association. Alf tied for medalist honors Monday with 70 during qualifying. Both won two matches Tuesday to advance. Semifinal matches and the championship is scheduled today. Warobick will meet Ed Terasa of Green Bay and Covelli plays Alex Antonio of Mequon. The winners meet for the title. -
