By GRAYLE HOWLETT
Although there were no parades
through the streets or dignitaries
to throw out the first ball, the
Michigan. baseball team opened up
at home yesterday and provided
their own fireworks in drubbing
the University of Detroit 9-3.
The Wolverines, taking advan-
tage of sunny skies and springlike
temperatures, also capitalized on.
two Detroit pitchers 'as they
banged out 123 hits, including one
home run and three triples. Throw
in two fine performances by start-
ing and winning pitcher Bob Reed
and reliefer Geoff Zahn and you
have the ingredients for a satisfy-
ing afternoon.
Michigan, paced offensively by
shortstop Bob Gilhooley who went
three-for-four and scored two runs
and knocked in another three, all
but wrapped it up in the second
inning when they sent ten men
to the plate and pushed across six
runs.
After a scoreless inning and a
half, first baseman Chan Simonds
led off the home half of the sec-
and with a line shot single to
right. Rick Sygar followed with an
infield single deep in the hole at
short. , Reed, up to sacrifice, laid
a perfect bunt down the third
base line which the Titans decided
to let roll. It hugged the chalk
line for a single and the sacks
were loaded.

Bob Gilhooley then collected
his first RBI when he lofted a sac-
rifice fly to left scoring Simonds
with the first run of the game.
Ted Sizemore walked to load the
bases, and when Detroit shortstop
Carlos Guerra threw wild to sec-
ond on Dick Shryer's ground ball,
two more runs scampered home.
Les Tanona blooped a single
into center to load the bases again.
After a run scored on Spicer's in-
field out and Shryer and Tanona
pulled a double steal to push an-
other across, the final tally scored
on first baseman Ty Harvard's
boot of Al Bara's grounder.
Through the Box
Detroit got two of them back
in the top of the third when Guer-
ra bounced a single through the
box, second baseman Tom Engel
sliced a double down the right
field line, and Mark Ottenbreit
dropped in a double over Gilhoo-
ley's head. After Harry Brinsden
lined a single to short which Gil-
hooley claimed he caught but the
umpire said he trapped, Reed set-
tled down and struck Tom Sied-
laczek out swinging and got Rick
Rashid to sky to left to end the
threat.
Michigan got one in the third
when Gilhooley jumped on a Fred
Beauregard fast ball and lined a
375-foot homer over the left cen-
terfield fence.
The two clubs battled scoreless
until the bottom of the fifth when
the. Wolverines used back-to-back
triples by Reed and Gilhooley to
produce their eighth run. Michi-
gan closed out their scoring in the
bottom half of the eighth when

'they loaded the bases on Gilhool-
ey's third hit, a line single through
the box, and walks to Sizemore
and Shryer. Then side-arm relief-
er Larry Salci wild pitched in
Gilhooley home to end the offens-
ive attack for the Wolverines.
Zahn Holds 'Em
Detroit managed a run in the
ninth on a walk, two singles and
an error, but Zahn never let the
Titans muster up another threat.
"I'm happy," said a smiling
Michigan coach MobyhBenedict
after the game, "but then you're
always happy when you win. Ev-
erything worked out fine includ-
ing the weather. I wish we could
have weather like this for all our
home games."
Benedict was probably beam-
ing over the sparkling perform-
ances by his two pitchers Reed and
Zahn. Reed, who notched his third
victory in four decisions, worked
the first five innings allowing
only two runs on five hits. He
struck out three and issued two
walks.
Zahn came on in the sixth inn-
ing and started out like a house

the side and collected seven strike-
outs overall in his four-inning
stint. Using a curve and change-
up which had the Titans off bal-
ance, the big sophomore gave up
only one unearned run on three
singles.
Satisfied with Pitching
"I'm satisfied with the pitching,"'
Benedict commented, "and we
