Special To The Daily
TUCSON-They say that the
climate is so dry in Arizona that
you can't perspire, but the Michi-
gan baseball team sure worked up
a sweat in handing the Arizona
Wildcats a 9-0 forfeit on Friday
Yesterday afternoon the Wol-
verines dropped a 14-4 decision
to the Wildcats, bringing their
record to 7-4-or 7-5, depending
on whether or not you like to
But first things first. Friday's
night game gave promise of being
more than just a ball game when
Michigan got into trouble early
with plate umpire Augie Acuna.
In the second inning, Wolverine
Acuna quickly called him out on
catcher Ted Sizemore was ejected
from the contest by Acuna for
kicking dirt on the plate in pro-
test of a closs call at the plate.
Then head Coach Moby Benedict
followed Sizemore to an early
shower by arguing too strenuous-
ly on the ejection.
Try Bufferin, Maybe
From this little skirmish it was
evident that Acuna either had a
headache or was wearing spikes a
size too small. Anyway, matters
didn't seem to improve when, in
the seventh inning, the sport of
baseball was treated to a rhubarb
that made the Marichal-Roseboro
incident seem bush.
Michigan had taken the lead
10-9 in the top half of the frame
and was trying to work out of a
jam in the "stretch" half of the
seventh with one out. Jerry Stitt
rapped a single, and, after an in-
field out, he advanced to third
on pitcher John Hosmer's bingle.
Then the roof caved in.
Left fielder Scott Neilson
brought Stitt home with a single
to center with what was appar-
ently the tying run. But Michi-
gan captain Bob Gilhooley called
for the ball, stepped on second,
and appealed the run on the
grounds that Hosmer had missed
second on his way to third.
Base umpire Ralph Hartley up-
held the appeal and the Wildcats
were seemingly retired without
scoring a run.
"Not so," said Acuna, and he
awarded Arizona the tying mark-
Acuna's Last Stand
The Michigan players descend-
ed on Acuna like the Indians on
Custer protesting the call. Dick
Honig, Michigan's assistant coach
who had taken the place of the
thumbed Benedict, finally fought
through the traffic at home plate
to show Acuna a rule book stating
that a run could not score in a
play where the third out is made
(Rule 4.09, how a team scores, of
the Official Baseball Rules).
This apparently didn't impress
Acuna, and his ruling stood.
Amidst all the shouting and ar-
guing, Benedict came down from
the stands in his street clothes to
But Acuna was getting tired of
all the chit-chat and ordered the
game to go on. He told Les Tan-
ona, Michigan's leadoff man in
the eighth, to step in the box, but
when the Wolverine belter decid-
ed to "fight instead of swish"

Bara Booted Out
Al Bara. the Blue's centerfield-
er, stepped in and with a count
of one strike was politely inform-
ed by Acuna that he had already
been kicked out during the fracas
at the plate.
When the Wolverines protested
that they had never heard any-
thing about the ejection, Acuna
decided that his best place was
at home and awarded the Wildcats
Michigan had chosen not to
count the fiasco as a loss, while
Arizona is adding the forfeit to
the win side of their ledger. Ac-
tually, it will go down in the of-
ficial record books as "no contest."
Arizona assured the Wolverines
that the services of Acuna would
not be requested again and that
they would provide a "good" um-
pire for today's day-night double-
header. Benedict talked with the
Arizona athletic department to-
day but it is not certain whether
or not any further action will be
Return to Normalcy
Settling down to play just "nor-
mal baseball," the Wolverines
dropped the first game of a twin-
bill to the University of Arizona,
when the Wildcats sent 12 men
to the plate in the first inning,
scoring eight runs.hIt just wasn't
the Blue's day as the very first
batsman blooped a single over the
first baseman's head, a double-
play ball was booted, and a ball
lost in the sun wound up as a
two-run triple for Wildcat short-
ston Eddie Leon.
Six more runs followed on five
hits and one hit batsman and
that was the story of the game.
Michigan starter Bill Zepp, who
absorbed the loss to the hard-hit-
ting Wildcats, tried to help his
cause with a two-run homer in
the second but the Wolverines
could not narrow the gap closer
than five runs.
Ed Southhard paced the Arizona
attack with three hits, including
two singles and a home run,
knocking in two tallies and scor-
ing two himself. Bob Hanse earn-
ed the victory as he forced the
Wolverines to hit the ball straight
at somebody all afternoon.
It was Michigan's fifth straight
game without a victory, after lead-
ing off their Arizona schedule with
seven wins in a row. The Univer-
sity of Arizona upped their sea-
son mark to 18-6.
