Michigan's surprising baseball
team will have a chance to prove
its mettle this weekend as it en-
counters Ohio State, defending
Big Ten champions, in a double-
header today and Indiana in an-
other twinbill set for tomorrow.
All four games will take place
at Ferry Field. Action begins at
1:00 this afternoon and, oddly
enough, 1:00 tomorrow afternoon.

back and establishing themselves
as bona fide contenders with a
sweep of a two game series with
Michigan State 'last weekend.
Michigan is the only unbeaten
team in the young Big Ten
scramble.
Pitching seems to be the key to.
early Wolverine successes and in-
deed, statistics released yesterday
show Michigan as the top club in
the team pitching category with
an ERA of 1.50. The diamondmen
placed second in team fielding
trailing only Northwestern, fourth
in batting with a .254 mark, and
fourth in slugging percentage,
posting a .333 average.
Pitcher Steve Evans, winner of
one of the MSU tilts, is the top
Michigan hurler with a 1.00 ERA,
good for eleventh in the league.
Dave Renkiewicz is sporting a 2.00
ERA, putting him in the sixteenth
slot.
Around the league, conference
pitching appears impressive with
combined ERA's of 2.67 as opposed
to an opposition batting average
of 2.38.
Ohio State has a 2-2 record and
Indiana features a 1-3 result of
past performances.
Despite the Hoosiers' twin loss
to Minnesota and a split with
Iowa, Indiana coach Ernie Andres
observed, "From the first week
of play, its looks like a dog-eat-
dog league with no-one running
away with it unless someone gets
either awfully hot or awfully
lucky."

season."
