I "It's a damn said head coach Jim Duncan, "be- cause you could tell a lot about some of these new people even in a 20 minute work out." All 69 hopefuls showed up for the opening, but three of them may not be participating in full scale workouts depending on further medical checks. The failure of Jesse Mims, starting halfback with the team for the last two seasons, to pass his medical due to high blood pressure created some worries for the coaching staff. He won't join in training until further tests are conduct- ied. 1 Craig Koinzan, a veteran de- fensive end and middle line- backer, isn't expected to work out full time for at least an- other two weeks. An off sea son knee operation prevented him from getting into peak physical condition.

"Lahoud has felt left out." said manager Del Crandall, "and it's tremendous for him to come through like this when he gets the opportunity." "I just hope I can produce ev- ery time I play so that I can force them to play me every Lahoud said after doing just what a designated hitter is designated to do.

Dr. Thomas Hanna, In- dianapolis Motor Speedway medical supervisor, said Sun- day that Savage's condition "can no longer be accurately described as stable." The 26-year-old Santa Ana, Calif., driver is still listed as critical, Dr. Hanna said, but his condition has worsened slightly in the last week.

He was also severely burned in the crash. afternoon encounters while Oak- land visits Kansas City, Califor- nia is in Chicago and Mil- waukee entertains Boston at night. Lahoud wasn't the only Brewer to unload a grand slam Sunday. Darrell Porter got things started in the second in- ning with a bases-loaded shot. Porter had been the Brewers' designated hitter lately but got a chance to catch with Efiie Rodriguez nursing an injured knee. That made Lahoud the designated hitter. It was the Brewers' second three-game sweep of the White Sox this month and their 14th victory in the last 15 games, keeping them one game ahead of Baltimore in the East. The slumping White Sox have dropped 10 of 15 but maintained a half-game lead over Min- nesota and Kansas City in the West.
