Batmen to play pair of twinbills;
try to salvage dismal season


Coach Moby Benedict's Wolver-
ine baseball squad's last chance
to gain salvation out of an other-
wise dismal season comes today
and tomorrow when they close out
the Big Ten season with double-
headers against Minnesota and
The Wolverines, currently 6-6 in
the conference and 11-19 overall,
will be attempting to play the
spoilers role this afternoon when
they engage league leading Minne-
sota at one o'clock at Ferry Field.
Also in the back of the Wolverines'
minds will be the outside possi-
bility of capturing second place
in the conference by sweeping all
four weekend contests.
Minnesota, the defending Big
Ten champions, need to win only
one of its four games to run off
with another conference diamond
title. They are currently 12-2 in
the Big Ten and 32-9 overall.
The Gophers, who are leading
the Big Ten in batting with a .334
average are led by first baseman
Mike Walseth and outfielders Noel
Jenke and Bob Nielsen.
Walseth is batting .439, .368 in
Big Ten play, and has six homers
and 39 runs batted in. Jenke, who
is averaging .412 and :457 in the
conference, has hit twelve homers
this season. Nielsen is currently
hitting .354 and has slugged nine
Minnesota also boasts a fine
crop of pitchers, led by Dave Cos-
grove, Gary Petrich and Bruce
Ericson. Cosgrove has compiled a;
5-2 mark this season, Petrich is
6-0, and Ericson is 6-1.
If Minnesota does lose all four
weekend games, it could still cap-
ture the title outright if both Il-
linois and Ohio State each lost one
contest. Gopher Coach Dick Sie-
bert said, however, "I'm not about
to worry about what Ohio or Il-
linois does. My only concern is our
own games. We are going all out
to bring the title back to Minne-
sota by winning it ourselves, not
by backing into it."
The Wolverines will have to
overcome the inconsistent play
that has plagued them all season
if they are to have any chance of

-MILWAUKEE-The Chicago White Sox hopped on Denny
McLain for four runs in the first inning-two of them on Bill
Melton's first homer in more than a month-and romped to a
7-3 victory over the Detroit Tigers last night.
The White Sox tagged McLain for seven runs and eight
hits in the six innings he worked.
Walt Williams started the four-run first with a single
and raced to third when Luis Aparicio sliced a double that
landed fair by inches down the right field line. Carlos May
walked, loading the bases and Gail Hopkins hit a sacrifice
fly for the first run. Aparicio scored on a force play and then

stalling the Gopher drive for the
top spot. Throughout the cam-
paign Michigan has either suffered
from a lack of pitching or lack of
hitting. Seldom has Coach Bene-
dict's team put everything together
as evidenced by losses of such
varied scores as 12-11 (to Bowling
Green), 10-9 (to Western Michi-
gan), and 1-0 (to Purdue).
There have, however, been some
bright spots for the Wolverines
this year. Third baseman Glenn
Redmon, leftfielder John Kraft,
and rightfielder John Arvai are all
slugging enemy pitching at well
over a .300 clip. On the pitching
side, Mark Carrow's performance
this season has been a pleasant
surprise. The' righthander from

Despite the team's rather poor
performance this season, it still is
one of six teams, aside from Min-
nesota, who have a shot at cap-
turing second place in the Big
Ten race. The Wolverines, how-
ever, will need a great deal of luck,
in' addition to four wins, to have
any shot at the runner-up slot.
