TIDE MICHIGAN DAUX

M'Nine Had What It akes, But OSUHa

PAGE FIVE

r

By ED HERSTEIN
There's an old adage that timely
hitting and clutch pitching is
wpat it takes to win baseball
games. Michigan had them both
this year, but Ohio State had
them a little more and the results
proved the adage correct.
Though Michigan's Big Ten
hitting and pitching were both
only fifth-best in the Big Ten,
the Wolverines finished the season

in second place. Ohio State, sec-
ond-best in pitching but a lowly
ninth in the batting department,
wound up on top.
How did they do it? Big Ten
statistics show that even with
mediocre hitting, Michigan scored
the third-highest number of runs
in the league. Ohio State, coming
through with men on base with
uncanny frequency, was runner-
up in runs scored.
The same holds true in pitch-

ing. The Wolverines were fourth
in runs allowed despite pitching
the most innings in the confer-
ence, and the Buckeyes again held
the second spot.
In the game that decided the
Big Ten title as much as any did,
second-place Michigan met first-
place Ohio State and the elements
that contributed so much to their
final records were show-cased.
The game went 16 innings, the
Buckeyes finally pulling it out,
4-3. The Wolverines' three best
pitchers, Bob Reed, Bill Wahl and
Clyde Barnhart, all saw "action,
Barnhart finally taking the loss
when rightfielder Jim Reed belted
one of his offerings over the fence
after he had pitched eight score-
less innings.
Arlin's Performance
Steve Arlin did even more for
Ohio State. He went all 16 innings
and in the process set a Big Ten
season strikeout record (68) and
captured season honors in innings
pitched (571/3), games won (6)
and win-loss record (6-0). Arlin
subsequently became a high draft
choice of the Detroit Tigers.
It took an abrupt about-face
by Coach Moby Benedict's dia-
mondmen to bring the showdown
for the title at Columbus, for they
started the season with an Ari-
zona road trip on which they won
only one game in eight.
Face the Champs
The Wolverines played three of
the games against eventual NCAA
champion Arizona State and three
more against another NCAA-
bound squad, the University of
Arizona. Since both had also had
extensive outdoor practice while
Michigan's workouts had been
confined to "our little corner in
Yost Field House," as Benedict
put it, the outcomes were not too
surprising.
The completion of the trip

found Benedict still unsatisfied
with the condition of his team.
"We still have to do a lot of work
to be ready for our Big Ten open-
er aaginst Wisconsin," he said.
The coach was satisfied with
Wolverine hitting, but comment-
ed, "If we're going to go anywhere
this season our pitching has got
to improve."
Beat Western
And improve it did, as the Wol-
verines came on to defeat Western
Michigan 8-2 in their final tune-
up game and then take eight Big
Ten contests in a row. Victories
over nonconference foes Eastern
Michigan and Notre Dame brought
an overall 10-game winning
streak until the Broncos, the team
that started string, ended it, again
by an 8-2 margin.
While going undefeated, the
Wolverines were making nervous
wrecks of their followers: they
pulled three games out by a one-
run margin, and often had to
come from behind before they
could chalk up another mark in
the win column.
But like all good things, the
streak had to come to an end.

to the Spartans by a 5-4 score.
OSU Drops Two
Meanwhile Ohio State suffered
its only two losses of the season
in shutouts by Illinois and In-
diana. The Wolverines were not
shut out all season.
After two straight second-place
finishes, Michigan can look for-
ward to another shot at the title
next year. The Wolverines had the
best outfieldin the conference
this season, and all of it will be
returning.
Rightfielder Carl Cmejirek won
the Big Ten batting title this year
with a .453 average, and he is only
a sophomore. Centerfielder Dick
Schryer, also a sophomore, led the
conference in total bases with 40,
doubles with eight and runs bat-
ted in with 15. Junior Al Bara in
left hit .339 on the season.
Gilhooley Back
In addition, Captain-elect Bob
Gilhooley will be back at short-
stop, where he helped the team
to a first-place tie in double plays.
As lead-off man, Gilhooley was
equally valuable.,He led the con-
ference in walks with 13 and runs
with 17.

Pitchers Bob Reed, Joe Kerr. for third baseman Dan DiNungio.
Jim Lyijynen and Bill Zepp will If timely hitting anid clutch
also return, along with first-string pitching will win titles, the Wol-
catcher Ted Sizemore and all of verines should have a great deal
Michigan's starting field except of what it takes next season.

Michigan Takes All-Sports Title

Michigan won so many titles
last year that it managed to
pick up still another one with-
out playing a single game.
That title is the Big Ten all-
sports leader, an award going
to the Western Conference
team that does the best in the
athletic events in which it par- ~
ticipates.
It's the second straight year
the Wolverines have taken the
crown, and they set a record
"quality point average" doing
it-dominating the conference
as has no other team in the
years such ratings have been
figured.
The quality point average is
obtained by dividing the num-
ber of sports in which a school
participated in Big Ten com-
petition into the total number
of points which the school ac-
cumulated (10 for a first, nine
for a second, etc.).
