but as a first baseman, singled to

nings and showed the style that
must rate him as the top pitcher
on the Wolverine squad this sea-

marked afterwards that "Zahn
pitched his best game of the
spring. His fast ball was moving'
at times and so was his curve ball.

noon as ten Eastern players went
down on strikes in the six frames

walked one in his six-inning
Benedict said after the game
that even though Zahn was work-
ing on a one-hitter at the time,
he had only planned to use him
six innings. The Michigan coach
is preparing Zahn for the Big Ten

a doubleheader against Indiana in
Sophomore Hurley came in to
pitch the final three frames and
continued the Wolverines' strike-
out mastery as he fanned five
Eastern batters to brings Mich-
igan's total to 15 for the day. The
two Huron pitchers were only able
to whiff five Michigan batters.
Hurley did have control trouble
though, giving up three walks. In
the eighth, he walked the lead-
off batter, third baseman Lonnie
Head, who then moved around to
third when second baseman Rick
Sygar missed the toss for the
