For those who are still skeptical, Track Coach Ted Nelson offers an open invitation to watch the Aggie cross-country teams open their sea son tonight at the A&M Invitational. The meet, which begins at 6 p.m. on the campus golf course, will fea ture four-way competition between the University of Houston, Baylor, Lamar and the host team Aggies. Nelson hopes this meet will allow Cross-Country Coach Steve Silvey to take a look at where both the men and women’s team stand. “It’s really hard to tell (w'here we are at) right now,” Nelson said. “Our best runner, (sophomore) Calvin Ga- ziano got sick over the summer and hasn’t fully recovered yet. He’s really just begun to run. We hope that by the time the Southwest Conference meet rolls around he’ll be in good shape.” But before die SWC meet arrives in November, the Aggies must deal with their immediate competition to night. The type of competition that Nelson says will present a tough trial for the young Aggie team. “1 think we’ll probably be third,” Nelson admitted, picking the more experienced Houston and Lamar teams to finish in front of A&M. “That is third if everything works out the way it is supposed to. “We are a really young team,” he added. “We only have one senior on the team, so we’re still trying to build a solid base. By the end of the year, I think we’ll be doing fine. Cross Country meets consist of a five-mile course for men and a three-mile distance for the women, generally run on golf courses or other grassy areas. Nelson said the NCAA changed the meets from 10,000 meters (6.2 miles) to the pre sent five-mile course four years ago to lessen the strain on short distance runners who use cross country to prepare for the spring outdoor sea son. Track Notes ... The University of Texas originally had committed to run in the A&M Invitational but backed out on Wednesday due to in juries. Nelson said the Longhorns figure to offer strong competition in this year’s competition, but just were not ready to compete this early in the season. A&M women golfers finish 6th at tourney DALLAS — The Texas A&M women’s golf team couldn’t pick up the pace in the SMU Classic Wednes day at the Brookhaven Country Club and finished last among the six teams. But the University of Texas, after trailing Southern Methodist by eight strokes after the first two rounds of play, surged in the final round with a team 287 to take the championship from the host Mustangs, which folded with a 303. The Aggies shot a team 327. The final scores turned out as fol lows: Texas, 897; SMU, 905; Texas Christian, 927; Lamar, 931; North Texas State, 932; and A&M, 969. Individual honors went to La mar’s Jennifer Wyatt, who fired a 212 to lead all golfers, on the 18- hole, par-72 course. For A&M individually, junior Hollie Frizzell shot a 235 — good for 17th. She was followed by junior Kelli Murphy with a 243. Sopho more walk-ons Mariana Oyenguren and Dee Davidson each scored a 249 and Cheryl Riegel shot a 254. Sierra’s game-winning RBI leads Rangers to victory ARLINGTON (AP) — Texas Rangers rookie outfielder Ruben Sierra has not only fought his way out of a midseason slump, he’s also developed a flair for the dramatic. In the last month, Sierra has had four game-winning RBI, and all of them have come in the bottom of the ninth or later. He got his fourth Wednesday night with a two-out double in the bottom of the 10th as the Rangers beat the Seattle Mariners 3-2. The victory was just the third in nine games for Texas. The second- place Rangers remained 8V2 games behind California in the American League West. The Angels beat Cleveland 7-6 in 14 innings. “We were aware of what was hap pening in Cleveland,” said Parrish, who drove in one run w'ith a sacrifice fly and another with a single. “It gave us a boost when the Indians tied it in the 12th. “We’re in a must-win situation now. With only 23 games left, we can’t afford to lose too many.” Sierra was batting under .200 at one point in June and was at .222 a month ago, had a pair of doubles Wednesday and raised his average to .265. His game-winner came off Seattle reliever Matt Young, 7-6, who re placed starter Mike Moore at the start of the 10th. “You just couldn’t ask for more from Ruben,” said designated hitter Larry Parrish, who drove in the other two Ranger runs. “It looks like he’s going to be a fixture with this team for years to come.” Toby Harrah led off the 10th with a bloop single to right and Bob Brower ran for him. After Oddibe McDowell popped out trying to bunt and Scott Fletcher struck out, Sierra hit a shot over third base and into the left-field cor ner, sending Brower home with the winner. Texas took a 1-0 lead in the fourth on Parrish’s sacrifice fly. Jim Presley tied it in the sixth with a leadoff home run, his 26th of the season, his second in two nights and his sixth against Texas this season. Parrish broke the tie in the bottom of the sixth with an RBI single. Seattle made it 2-2 in the eighth on Scott Bradley’s RBI single off Har ris. Sax powers Dodgers past Astros, 5-1 LOS ANGELES (AP) — Steve Sax had four hits and Orel Hershiser and two relievers combined to scat ter nine hits Wednesday night as the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the Houston Astros 5-1. Sax had three singles, an RBI double and scored twice as the Dodgers snapped the Astros’ four- game winning streak. It was the sec ond time in a week Sax has collected four hits in a game. Sax has 18 hits in his last 28 at-bats and has hit safely in nine straight games. AMERICAN LEAGUE NATIONAL LEAGUE East Division East Division W L Pet. GB W L Pet.
