WMU Defeats Cold Diamondmen
Behind Overpowering 4-Hitter, 8-0

WEEK IN REVIEM

Fisher C

By MICHAEL HEFFER
Chilling breezes and a pitcher
named Charles Mestek combined
yesterday to freeze the Wolverine
'nine in ,all departments as the
Western Michigan Broncos walked
off with an easy 8-0 victory yes-
terday at Ferry Field
Mestek allowed just four hits,
fanned 11, and never was in seri-
ous trouble.
In fact, Mestek was able to
coast all the way because his
teammates, who threatened in
nearly every ining, scored in the
second, third and fourth frames.
Threat Starts
Bronco threats started with the
very first batter, Jim Johnson,
who drew a walk from Wolverine
starter Joe Kerr. who was always
in trouble, then was hit by Jim
Redman for what appeared to be
a double. a sharp grounder just in-
side the third base foul line.
When the dust had cleared,
Johnson was on third and Redman
on second. But an alert Wolverine
noted that Redman had not
touched first. and an appeal play
to first turned his double into a
ground out. This took the steam
out of the Broncos first rally, but
they came night back in the
second.
After Richard Trudeau walked
and the next batter flew out, Kerr
hit Bruce Roberts. Bronco catcher
Richard .Brown then singled to
right field, and right fielder Keith
Spicer's throw in was wild, en-
abling Trudeau to score.
Belts Homer
In the third, Redmon made up
for his base-running mistake by
belting his first home run of the
year. Pat Locanto's double and
Koselke's single started another
threat which Trudeau continued
by knocking Kerr out of the game
with a double to left. .
Kerr was replaced by Larry
Guidi, Coach Moby Benedict's
strong reliever. Yet before Guidi
could retire the side, Roberts
knocked a double to left, scoring
two more Broncos
For all purposes, that wvas the
game, but the Broncos refused to
stop, and their next attack re-
sulted in a couple Wolverine mis-
cues.
As the sun hid itself and hands
froze, the Broncos scored on a
walk, an error and a single that
sent a runner scoring all the way
from first. In the most unusual
play.of the game, Trudeau singled
with runners from first and second
and two out; but Trudeau thought
he could make it to second on the
throw.
He was wrong. As the men who
had been on base raced for hone.
the Wolverines caught Trudeau in
a rundown, chased him to first
and tagged him out. It was ruled,
however, that Rick Sygar, the
Wolverine second baseman, had
obstructed Trudeau's path. (Sygar
did not have the ball at the time.)
Trudeau was called safe, and
Sygar was changed with an error.
No Chance
The Wolverines never had a
chance at the plate. Two quick
double plays in each of the first
two innings saw to that, and
Mestek's mastery over the Wolver-
ines hardly wavered.
While several Wolverines man-
aged hard line drives, almost all
were caught. Prior to yesterday
the Wolverines had outhit their
opponents, .269 to .2 14, but the
Mid:American Conference leading
Broncos altered these figures
somewhat, outhitting the Wolver-
ines 10-4.
. The loss lowers Michigan's rec-
ord to 18-8. Kerr, who took the
loss, is now 3-2.

Letf-hander Zahn pitched all
seven innings of both games, win-
ning 1-0 and 8-2. It was the first
time a Big Ten pitcher had start-
ed, finished and won a twin bill
since Minnesota's Paul Giel in
1964.
Zahn allowed only four scattered
singles in the first game. Coach
Moby Benedict, deciding Zahn was
still going strong, sent him into
start the second game and con-
tinue as long as he held up.
The Wolverines, paced by Les'
Tanona's home run and Andy
Fisher's three for three perform-
ance at the plate, pushed across
six runs before Northwestern's Jim
Henderson hit a centerfield home
run in the fourth.
Zahn worked effectively, tossing
only 93 and 92 pitches during the
afternoon. The Wildcats managed
only three hits in the second game.
Michigan bowed to Wisconsin,
4-2, in the first game of what

WALKER SIGNS WITH PISTONS
Jim Walker, Providence All-America and the nation's top scorer among major teams last season,
signed a four-year contract yesterday with the Detroit Pistons of the National Basketball Associa-
tion for an estimated $250,000. The 6-foot 3-inch Bostonian, seen amove signing autographs for fans
in New York, will join Dave Bing, NBA Rookie of the Year in the Pistons' backcourt.

The Michigan golf team will
face their first dual meet compe-
tition in over a month when they
go against the linksmen from
Michigan State University today
at 12:30 at the Michigan Course.
Except for the Alma Invita-
tional which the Wolverines won
last week,,the golf team has not
played in intercollegiate compe-
tition since the Miami University
Invitational in late March.
"The layoff from finals has cer-
tainly done us no good," said
Coach Bert Katzenmeyer. "State
has played more than we have and
is undoubtedly better prepared for
the meet."
The Wolverine squad spent yes-
terday afternoon on the course
with the University of Florida
squad. The Florida team is here
in preparation for the second an-
nual Northern Intercollegiate Golf
Tournament to be held this Friday
and Saturday.
Today's eight-man meet with
Michigan State will see senior
John Schroeder p a i r e d with
State's Sandy McAndrew in the
first match.
The seven other Wolverine play-
ers will be John Richart, Frank
Groves, Rod Sumpter, Bob Bar-
clay, Harry Engelhart, Dave Graff
and Mark Christianson.

on Friaay. Jon Szchroeder led the
golfers with a three over par 75.
The team compiled a 314 score
for first place in the team's first
outing since the University of
Miami Invitational in March. John
Richart, Dave Graff and Mark
Christianson all fired 79s.
The Wolverines will host the
Northern Collegiate Champion-
ships at the 'Michigan Course this
Friday and Saturday.
Retains Shot Put Title
Michigan shot putter Jack Har-
vey defended his championship in
the Penn Relays Saturday with a
58"1%" toss.
The Michigan two-mile relay
team marked a third-place finish,
behind Villanova and Fordham.
In the Ohio Relays earlier in
the week, Harvey tossed the shot
58 feet 612 inches and the two-
milercombo of John Reynolds, Tom
Kearney, Alex McDonald and Ron
Kutschinski won in 7:44.8.
Larry Midlam was clocked in a
wind-assisted high hurdles time of
