M' Nine Had

What It Takes, Rut OSUHadore

By ED HERSTEIN
There's an old adage that timely
hitting and clutch pitching is
what 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 to the Spartans by a 5-4 score.

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.).

The Maize and Blue had a
9.27 average-better than a
second-place finish in all sports
-and broke the old mark of
8.95 which Michigan itself set
in 1963-64.
The Wolverines had five
league titles (no record-111i-

nois won seven and tied for
another in 1951-52), and no
Michigan team finished lower
than third in the conference.
Michigan State came in sec-
ond for the second straight
year with a 7.15 quality point
average.
