Michigan Defeats Irish On Ninth Inning Rally; Tigers To,

Indians

.

FIFE BUNT
KEY PLAY
Fleszar wins own
game with one-out
single to right
By P. ROBERT HERTZ
Associate Sports Editor
Taking a leaf from the annals
of the notorious Frank Merriwell,
Coach Moby Benedict's Wolverine
baseball squad erupted for three
ninth inning runs yesterday to
end a 27 inning scoring drought
and hand Notre Dame's fighting
Irish their eighth loss in nine de-
cisions, 3-2.
The situation looked rather
bleak for the Wolverines as they
came up for their last licks. Notre
Dame had scored for the first
time in more than nineteen innings
in the eighth to take the lead and
appeared headed for their second
win of the season, but Michigan
rightfielder Mike Bowen slashed a
single to left off Irish starter Ron
Schmitz to open the final frame.
Schmitz, however, seemed to be
in full control of the situation
when he induced leftfielder Tom
Kettinger to force Bowen at sec-
ond. Catcher Tom Lundstedt re-
vived the Wolverines' hopes when
he laced a single off the second
baseman's glove to centerfield ad-
vancing pinch runner Greg Buss
to second.
Rafferty Doubles
Then Mike Rafferty delivered
the big blow of the inning when
. he laced a prodigious clout one
bounce off the centerfield fence,
plating Buss with the first Wol-
verine tally since Thursday's con-
test against Eastern Michigan and
sending Lundstedt to third.
The Irish elected to walk Mich-
igan first baseman Pat Sullivan
intentionally to fill the bases, but
the surprising strategy of the
suicide squeeze, executed to per-
fection by basketball player turned
centerfielder Dan Fife, scored an-
other pinch runner Mickey Elwood
with the tying tally. Fife was
credited with a bunt single when
no Irish player covered first.
Pitcher aids own cause
The capper to the rally was de-
ivered when relief pitcher Tom
Fleszar popped a single to right
over the drawn-in Notre Dame in-
field to score Rafferty with the
decisive run. The hit.allowed the
Wolverine lefthander to gain credit
for his first win of the season.
Aside from the ninth inning'
Michigan heroics, the contest was
far from exciting. Neither team
was able to mount much of a'
threat during the first seven in-
nings of the contest. The Irish
had been held to a looping single
by Smitz and a line single to
left by Bayonne, New Jersey's
Denny Patryle until their eighth
ining rally had appeared to put
the game under wraps.
k For the first three innings,
Michigan ace Jim 'Burton held
the Irish hitless during the open-
ing three innings as he began his
comeback from sickbed with an
impressive showing. Freshman
Pete Helt took over and held the
Irish in check until Bob Voitier
opened the eighth by beating out
a dribbler down the third base
line. The situation deteriorated for
Michigan when Sullivan misplay-
ed Nick Scarpelli's bunt. The Irish
broke the scoreless tie one out
later when Rich Lucke drilled a
single to right center. Joe Kennan
later looped another hit to give'
Notre Dame its second score.
Meanwhile Michigan was un-

able to get anyone to third base
until the eigtht inning when Fife
got that far as a result of a double
and a groundout. Schmitz, how-
ever, had not gone the distance
all year and simply ran out of
gas in the ninth as Michigan was:
able to garner their fifth win
against nine losses.
The Maize-and-Blue will be idle
until Saturday afternoon when
they entertain the Titans of the
University of Detroit in a twinbill
beginning at 1:00 p.m.

BENGALS
ROMP, 12-4
Seven Indian hurlers
routed-Lolich goes
distance for win
By RICHARD S. CORNFELD
Special To The Daily
DETROIT - You couldn't have
asked for a better opening day
game at Detroit's Tiger Stadium
yesterday afternoon. The crowd
was large, jovial and enthusiastic.
The weather was a little chilly,
but pleasant enough.
There was a lot of hitting and
a lot of scoring. And most of it
was done by the Tigers, as they
walloped the Cleveland Indians,
12-4.
From the moment the crew of
government officials, including
Gov. William Milliken and Mayor
Roman S. Gribbs, helped start the
home season by throwing the first
pitch, until the Tribe brought in
its last remaining relief pitcher,
Dennis Higgins, the game was a
team effort all around.
Balanced Bengal Barrage
Each of the nine Detroit play-
ers participatedsin therscoring,
and all but Cesar Gutierrez had
hits and drove in runs to make for
an attack almost as balanced as
possible.
In a game which saw 15 Tiger
hits and 27 overall, it's hard to
single out individual players for
s p e c i a 1 distinction. But Norm
Cash's three hits, including a 350-
foot blast into the right field seats,
and three hits by Jim Northrup
helped ease Lolich to a 2-1 record.
Tigers Bat Around Twice
The main thrusts of the Tiger
attack came in the third and fifth
innings, producing nine runs. The
four third-inning tallies came off
loser Rich Hand, the first of seven
Cleveland pitchers.
A single by Don Wert and a
bunt by winning pitcher Mickey
Lolich, in which the Indians un-
successfully tried to force Wert at
second started the inning off.
Eight batters later, the Tigers had
a four run lead and Hand, a rook-
ie with one year's professional ex-
perience was in the showers.
Only two other hits figured in
the inning-a single by Dick Mc-
Auliffe and a double by Al Kaline-
Ten men batted in the third and
also in the fifth inning, with five
crossing the plate in the latter
frame. The only Tigers not to
reach base in the fifth frame were
McAuliffe and Gutierrez, and, of
the others, only Al Kaline, who
walked, failed to get a base hit.
Lolich Struggles
The only discouraging part of
the game for Detroit was the
pitching of winner Mickey Lolich,
who allowed 12 hits and walked
four in notching his third straight
complete game and second victory.
Impressive for the Indians was
rookie Ray Foster, with four hits.
Ted Ford also connected for his
first majorleague home run for
Cleveland.

NIGHT EDITOR:
ELLIOT LEGOW
Pro Cage Merger
NearsSettlement
NEW YORK (MP-The American
Basketball Association presented
yesterday seven general recom-
mendations for merger with the
National Basketball Association,
leaving the next step toward a
marriage of the two pro circuits
up to the NBA owners.
ABA Commissioner Jack Dolph
said the recommendations also had
been agreed to, in general, by the
NBA's merger committee and now
would be submitted to the NBA
owners, who might meet next
week.
Dolph expressed optimism at a
news conference over a merger of
the two leagues.I
Agreement Reached
The general areas of agreement,
as aproved by the ABA owners
are:
-Commencing next season there
will be a championship series and
an All-Star game between the two
leagues.
-Commencing n e x t season
there will be separate leagues with
a limited mixed regular-season
schedule. This structure will con-
tinue for three seasons after which
there will be a total realignment
of all existing teams.
-All eleven of the ABA teams
will be included in any merger.
-Each league will retain sep-
arate negotiation rights for na-
tional television for the period of
the next three years.
--All players who are involved
in multiple signings will remain
in their current legal status and
will be resolved between the two
teams involved.
-An indemnity of approximate-
ly $11 million will be paid by the
ABA.
BOSTON VP) - George Scott,
Tony Conigliaro and Reggie Smith
drilled homers through a stiff
cross-wind in powering the Boston
Red Sox to an 8-3 victory over the
New York Yankees yesterday in
an American League home opener.

BOSTON {,") - The Boston
Bruins, frustrated much of the
way, struck from behind on a
pair of third period goals by Phil
Exposito and edged the New York
Rangers 3-2 last night to move
within one victory of winning
their National Hockey League
quarter-final playoff series.
Esposito scored on a pass from
Wayne Cashman and then scored
again on a long forword feed by
Bobby Orr, pulling the Bruins
from behind and giving his team
a 3-2 series advantage.
The Bruins can wrap up the
East Division series in New York
tomorrow night.
Orr sent Boston into a 1-0 lead
with a rink-length dash at 2:44
after the opening fadeoff, but the
Rangers assumed command and
were in charge until the Bruins
came out fired up for the third
period.
Hits on Second Shot
Esposito hit the post in a tip
of an Orr shot, but 30 seconds
later he tied the score 2-2 as he
took a shove pAss from Cashman
and beat New York goalie Ed Gia-
comin on a 15-footer.
The Bruins continued to apply
pressure and at 7:50 Orr threaded
a pas to Esposito behind the New
York defense and the Boston cen-
ter skated in all alone to score
his sixth goal of the series.
In an effort to stem Boston's

tremendous momentum, New York
Coach Emile Francis slowed down
the game by sending out goalie
Terry Sawchuk to replace Giaco-
min. Sawchuk played less than a
minutes before Giacomin returned
to the goal. The strategy failed as
the Bruins continued their sharp
play and hung on for the victory.
After Orr's first period goal,
New York tied the game on a tally
by rookie Jack Egers, who scored
on a power play at 5:18 of the
first period.
Blues Jar Stars, 6-3
ST. LOUIS (')--The St. Louis
Blues pumped in three goals in
the opening minutes of the final
period, one while shorthanded,
last night and laced the Minne-
sota North Stars 6-3 in National
Hockey League Stanley Cup quar-
ter-final action.
The Blues' offensive flurry,
cheered by a standing-room-only
throng of 17,208, boosted the Blues
to a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven
series, with the sixth game sched-
uled for tomorrow night In Min-
nesota.
Terry Gray and Red Berenson
and defenseman Jim Roberts
sealed the wide-open contest after
the teams left the ice following
the middle period with St. Louis
leading 3-2.

Bruins Nip Rangers, 3-2;
Esposito Nets Two Goals

'M' NETTERS
BEAT WMU
Special To The Daily
KALAMAZOO - Despite resting
several starters, Michigan's net-I
ters dominated their match with
Western Michigan, and swept all
nine contests.
The match, originally scheduled
for Monday but postponed due to
rain, saw the Wolverines finally
approach their expected potential.
Mark Conti, No. 1, was rested
because he has been bothered by
an inflamed knee for the p a s t
several days. Joel Ross, No. 3, andj
Tim Ott, No. 7, remained in Ann
Arbor to take care of class respon-
sibilities.
Playing in place of Conti, Jon
Hainline took charge to defeat Jer-
ry Smith 6-4; 6-2. Bruce DeBoer
also moved up a position to knock
off his opponent 6-1; 6-2. Hitting
away at the No. 3 spot, Ramone
Almonte, the flashy junior from
Puerto Rico finished off Rick'
Westhoff 6-4; 6-0.
Sweep Singles
In other singles matchers, D a n
McLaughlin dealt Pat Birney a
6-4; 6-1 setback while little used
freshman Mike Ware survived a
tiresome second set to register a
6-1; 8-6 victory over Bill Rich-I
ards. At No. 6 Doug Mclaury pow-I
ered his way to a 6-1; 6-1 conquer-
ing of Joe' Volkert.
Michigan also swept the t h r e e

match going 3 sets as Ware andI
McLaury squeaked through a 6-3;,
1-6; 7-5 decision over Volkert and
Birney.
Wolverine Coach Brian Eisner,
was very pleased by the improved
performance of his squad. He at-
tributed the change over previous:
matches to "much more confi-
dence" and to the fact that Mich-
igan had had "one more day out-
side" to get accustomed to t h e
slower hard-surfaced courts and
wind conditions.
Eisner also picked out Ware,
McLaury, and the DeBoer-Hain-j
line first doubles team for special
praise.
