"Let's just hope that our luck
hold on for another three or four
weeks," he concludes, and with
good reason.
Michigan's "hot-handed" dia-
mondmen have won eight of their
last nine ganes, and are sitting on
top of the 1968 Big Ten baseball
race with a highly respectable 5-1
onference record.

hurler Steve Evans went all the
way as the Wolverines banged out
a 5-1 decision. Right-fielder El-
liott Maddox, one of numerous
players sporting .300-plus batting
averages, had two hits in the con-
test. . }
fJack Hurley started the second
game on the hill, and allowed a
single Hoosier score that was too
much for his teammates to handle.
Hurley issued a pair of walks in
the first frame, and a single

one hit to the visitor, but was tag-

The Wolverines mounted an-

Maddox drilled a single to left.
The rally was once'again cut off,
however, when Redmon flied out

with the prospect of leading the

is not overly optimistic about thet

from the indoor squad, but the
wolverines still have put together
a mile relay quartet that may be
among the best in the conference.

in the conference meet.
One event does seems to be
rouding into fine shape after a
long dry spell. Gary Knicker-
bocker, Clarence Martin, and Rick
Hunt took first, second, and third
at Columbus for their finest col-
lective showing of the year.
Both Martin and Hunt have
been erratic since the start of the
indoor season, and their imlrove-
ment will mean a lot to the team.
Kutschinski's victory in the 880,
in the very fast time of 1:49.6, is
also encouraging. He has run well
for weeks now, after suffering an!
annoying leg injury in February.
