By BILL ZOLLA
Center fielder Jack Mogk's sacri-
fice fly in the tenth inning score4
the winning run in Michigan's
stirring uphill victory over Wayne
State, 10-9, yesterday at Wayne.
His blow, however, only climaxed
a terrific team effort in which the
Wolverines pounded out 20 base
hits and came from behind four
times before capturing the contest.
Perhaps the two key hits of the
game came in the top of the ninth
when the Michigan squad, trailing,
9-7, tied the score to send the
game into extra innings. Mogk
opened the frame by popping out
to the catcher; shortstop Gene
Struczewski then connected for his
third hit of the game, a single'to
right field.
This set the stage for pinch hit-
ter Bob Kucher, who, batting for
the Wolverines' second hurler, Bob
Marcereau, promptly lined a
double down the left field line,
scoring Struczewski and leaving
the 'M' team behind by one tally,
9-8.
Second baseman Barry Marshall
then went down on strikes, but
sensational sophomore Wilbur
Franklin knotted the count with
his clutch single to right. This was
also Franklin's third hit of the
game and second run batted in.
Wayne came close to winning
the game in its half of the ninth,
but Wolverine pitcher Bob Stab-
rylla put out the rally with the
bases loaded by striking out center
fielder Larry Thow,
The Tartars' third baseman
George White had opened the last
of the ninth by walking. Jim Brad-
shaw, who had relieved Marcereau,
seemed to find clear sailing when
the next hitter, second baseman
Roger Lappeus grounded into a

lightning-fast double play, short
to second to first
But Bradshaw ran into hard
luck as Bill Roman, his teammate
at first dropped a peg from third
sacker Dave Brown. Brown had
fielded Bob Inman's ground ball
but the throw glanced off Roman's
glove, and Inman was safe at
second. Catcher Bob Conrad was

intentionally passed to get to
pitcher Don Schore.
Bradshaw, however hit him with
a pitched ball, and Michigan Coach
Don Lund decided to remove
Bradshaw in favor of Stabrylla.!
He then put out the fire.
WSU drew first advantage, tally-
ing twice in the second inning on
first baseman Jerry Monticello's
home run, a triple by Lappeus, and
Conrad's single.
Michigan came back with three
in the third on Struczewski's
double, and singles by Barry Mar-
shall, Franklin, Roman and Dick-
ey. Wayne right fielder Inman
committed the first ,of nine errors
in the game on Roman's hit, al-
lowing the third counter.
The lead see-sawed back and
forth with Michigan scoring one
in the fifth to tie the game, 4-4,
and three in the sixth to take a
momentary 7-5 advantage. Thow
hit a three-run homer for Wayne
in the bottom of the sixth frame
to give the Tartars an 8-7 margin.
Wayne added a solo run in the
seventh on two singles and a Mich-
igan miscue to take the 9-7 lead
which it held until the ninth.
Ironically, last year's Michigan-
Wayne contest also ended in a 10-9
Wolverine victory in 10 innings.

By GARY WRIGHT
Michigan's tennis team lost only
its third dual-match since 1954,
yesterday, at the hands of Notre
Dame, 5-4.
The Irish, sparked by a balanced
attack, have inflicted two of these
defeats. Last year they broke the
Wolverines' 47 consecutive dual-
match victory skein.
Even in defeat Coach Bill
Murphy was pleased with his
team's showing and especially that
of Captain Jon Erickson. Erickson
outlasted one of the nation's top
.ranked netters in defeating Co-
Captain Max Brown of the Irish,
6-1, 3-6, 6-3.
Brown Named All-American
Brown, besides defeating Erick-
son last year, was named to the
second team NCAA All-American,
squad and in 1957 he reached the
quarter-finals of the NCAA.
Erickson was far more aggres-
sive than Brown and simply over-
powered the veteran senior from
Louisville, Kentucky.
In the first set Erickson played
his best tennis of the afternoon.
His powerful serve and aggressive
net-play gave Brown little chance
to set himself. Erickson dropped
his backhand shots along the side-
lines almost at will.
Displays Speed and Defense
The second set saw Brown put
on a great display of speed and
play a fine defensive game. He
took over the net from Erickson
and kept the 6'5" Wolverine senior
deep in his own backcourt.
Brown fell behind quickly in the
third set, 5-1; but he refused to
surrender to Erickson and hung
on gamely to win the next two
games. But Erickson was not to be
denied. With a fine display of
power he won the set point for
victory.
Dubie's Streak Stopped
Sophomore Gerry Dubie's win
streak was halted at three by Don
Ralph, 6-4, 6-4.
The singles were split evenly at

three apiece, and it was in the
doubles where Notre Dame's depth
showed itself. They swept straight
sets in the first and second doubles
to clinch the match.
Brown and Bill Heinbecker, play-
ing beautiful tennis, defeated
Erickson and Dubie in the first
doubles, 6-2, 6-2. The Michigan

Heinbecker's great power and fine
speed simply broke their backs. He
returned nearly everything hit in
his direction and scored almost
at will.
Sixth Straight Win
The victory was the sixth
straight for Coach Tom Fallon's
"Fighting Irish."
Today at Kalamazoo 'M, faces
a strong Western Michigan team
which has posted a fine 8-2 record
thus far this season. Last year the
Wolverines defeated the Broncos
to the tune of 7-2.
John Cook, number one singles,
promises to give Erickson another
tough match. Cook won the Mid-
American Conference singles title
last season and has looked very
good in his matches this spring.

"I've beaten all those that I can.r
There's one left that I don't think
I'll be able to beat."-
That's what Michigan's ace1
broad jumper, Les Bird, has tok
say about his recent successes inF
the Big Ten indoor meet and the2
Penn R e la y s. But local fans
shouldn't bet on Les not being able
to come up with a little something
extra if and when he faces that
big "one," Ernie Shelby of Kansas.
Only in his first semester of
varsity competition, he has al-
ready beaten most of the top-
flight broad jumpers in this part
of the country. Bird became eli-
gible in February and within two
months was crowned as the Big
Ten indoor broad jump champion
at the Conference meet at Illi-
nois, with a jump of 24'101".

a creditable 381 total for four

A jump of 25'1%", his best per-
sonal effort to date, won him first

will undoubtedly see Shelby par-
ticipate, and if Michigan's An-
tiguan jumper makes the trip, a
first rate contest could shape up.
Man of Ambitions
However, beating Shelby is only
one of many ambitions for the
first semester sophomore. Anoth-
er one of the dreams that he has
almost three more years to fulfill
place over some of the best in the
East.
The one big challenge that re-

mains is Shelby of Kansas. Per-
is to break the school mark in his
event. Said Bird, "I'd like to think
of breaking the Michigan record,
but that's quite a distance."
The Wolverine varsity record
now is 25'10", set in 1925 by De-
hart Hubbard. More than eight
inches better than Bird's best try,
this mark stood for some time as
a world record.
