any better. In four innings Michi-

homer by Franz Neubrecht.
The victory went to senior Bob
Marcereau who hurled the fifth,
sixth and seventh innings. But ac-
tually it wouldn't have mattered
if the equipment manager pitch-

After a runless first inning Spal-
la put Michigan in front to stay
when he massaged a fast ball
over the right-center field fence
leading off the second.
The Wolverines picked up three
more in the third on a walk to
shortstop Dick Honig, a single by
Bill Freehan and DeLamielleure's
towering home run which almost
decapitated an unwary tennis
player some 400-plus feet from
By the time Strausberger de-
parted in the sixth with the bases
loaded and nobody out, the Wol-

In the three run sixth, Freehan
singled, DeLamielleure walked,
Merullo singled scoring Freehan,
and sophomore Spalla exercised
everyone with a long triple to
right center, his third hit of the
afternoon. Exit Strausberger, en-
ter Neuman, who surprised every-
one by retiring the side peacefully
-for one inning.

He was greeted in the seventh'
with a single by shortstop Joe
Jones, walked Honig, became
somewhat flustered when Freehan
sent a hard single-his third of
the day to left scoring Jones, and
still more depressed when reserve
outfielder Jim Steckley tallied
Honig with a single.

and allowing two runs on three
hits. Marcereau gave up two runs
on only one hit during his stint.
Despite the lopsided victory
there have been no cries as yet
from the Big Ten to break up the
Wolverines. If there were it
wouldn't make much difference, it
would only give Coach Don Lund
two pennant contenders instead of
Lund seems to have players
hidden away he doesn't even know
about. In the eighth inning yes-
terday he produced a big sopho-
more named Frantz Neubrecht to
pitch the eighth and ninth in-

nings. Yesterday Neubrecht was
not much of a pitcher-he was
belted for four runs in two in-
inngs--but he turned out to be a
helluva hitter.
In the home half of the eighth
he hit a clothesline shot that
whistled over the center-field
fence and headed for the freight
Scoring in front of him was
Barry Marshall, a semi-retired
second-first baseman who owned
a .398 average last year as a reg-
ular, but who is having trouble
breaking into this year's lineup.
Marshall had doubled batting for
catcher Dick Syring.
Today the Wolverines can ex-
tend their winning streak to three
games when they meet Central
Michigan in a doubleheader at
Mount Pleasant.

Hawks Whip Wings;
Lead Playoffs, 3-2

By The Associated Press
CHICAGO - Stan Mikita and
Murray Balfour, scoring two goals
each, last night led the Chicago
Black Hawks to a 6-3 victory over
the Detroit Red Wings and a
three-to-two lead in their Stanley
Cup Championship playoff.
The Black Hawks, seeking their
first championship in 23 years, can
wrap it up in Detroit Sunday night.
If they fail the series returns to
Chicago for the seventh and final
game Tuesday.
Mikita's two goals came in the
final period. The first goal broke
a 3-3 tie and put the Hawks ahead

to stay while Howie Young was
serving a tripping penalty.
Young had tripped Balfour who
slid into the net post and had
to leave the ice with an injured
arm. Twenty nine seconds later
Mikita scored his first goal.
The Hawks made it 5-3 on a
goal by Pierre Pilote at 7:02 and
6-3 on Mikita's second goal at
In all, the Hawks fired 24 shots
at Detroit Goalie Terry Sawchuck
in the final period.
It was blood-and-thunder hoc-
key in the first two periods.
Detroit took its only lead on a
goal by Leo Labine with the game
only 2:14 old.
Chicago then tied it up on Mur-
ray Balfour's first goal at 9:36 and
moved in front 28 second later on
Ron Murphy's disputed goal. Mur-
phy took a pass from Eric Nester-
enko at the mouth of the goal and
put it in. The Wings insisted Mur-
phy caught the puck and dropped
it in past Sawchuck, but were
overruled by referee Frank Udvari.
With Elmer Vasko in the penalty
box, Howie Glover tied the score
at 2-2, less than five minutes re-
maining in the period.
The two teams battled on equal
terms in the second period. Bal-
four scored his second goal at
16:25 for a 3-2 Chicago lead only
to have Vic Stasiuk tie it at 18:49
after taking a pass from Gordie
With less than a minute left in
the second period a fight broke out
between Detroit's Pete Goegan and
Chicago center Red Hay and be-
fore it was over all the players on
the ice with the exception of the
goalies were involved.

By The Associated Press
DETROIT-Jim Landis's scratch
single in the fifth inning ruined
Frank Lary's bid for a no-hitter
yesterday as he pitched the De-
troit Tigers to a 7-0 triumph over
the Chicago White Sox.
Landis' hit bounced off short-
stop Chico Fernandez's glove and
the official scorer promptly ruled
it a hit. Fernandez was forced to
go far to his right to make the
play. If he had fielded it cleanly
it appeared he might have caught
Landis at first.
Lary had no complaints about
the call.
Rookie Jake Wood and veteran
Al Kaline led the Tiger attack
with three hits apiece, while
"Iajor League

Rocky Colavito hit a two-run
homer in the four-run Tiger third.
The Tigers knocked out Bau-
mann, an old nemesis, with three
runs in the first two innings. Wood
led off the Tiger first with a sin-
gle and Kaline chased him home
with a double just inside first
base. Singles by Fernandez and
Wood and Lary's double produced
two more runs in the second.
The one-hitter was the best per-
formance in Lary's seven-year ma-
jor league career. The righthand-
er, who usually saves his peak per-
formances for the New York Yan-
kees, previously had pitched a pair
of two-hitters.

Toronto Today
At Wines Field
How the Ann Arbor Rugby Club
fares against the powerful Toron-
to Irish this afternoon could de-
pend on how well placekicker John
Niehuss and running backs Harry
Newman, Dave Dingham and
Terry Robinson do.
The locals meet the Irish at 2
p.m. on Wines Field.
In rugby, place-kicking can eas-
ily spell the difference between
winning and losing, because for
every three-point try (touch-
down) a team scores, it gets a
chance at a two-point conversion.
In addition, a team is awarded
a three-point penalty kick from
the spot on the field of rules in-
fraction and can attempt a three-
point drop-goal (field goal) at any
The effect of a good passer is
minimized, because the only legal
pass is the lateral.

Tareyton delivers the flavor...
