MAJOR LEAGUE ROUNDUP:
Tigers Club Indians, Tie for Second

By BRIAN MacCLOWRY
Don Lund should find out just
ow good his Michigat baseball'
am is today when it meets de-
nding NCAA champion Minne-+
ta on the first leg of the 1961
ig Ten pennant chase.,
Three-thirty is the time and
erry Field the place.
Sophomore right hander Mike
oyce will hurl for the Wolverines
nd will be opposed by Gopher ace
oward Nathe.
Don't be late, for as they say in
ie fight game, it's 7-5 that neither
f'em; will go the distance. Both
ams are loaded offensively.
Knapp Leading Gopher
Minnesota comes to town with
.310 team batting average and
n. all-American first baseman
amed Wayne Knapp, who last
ear led the conference in home
uns, total bases and slugging per-
entage. His .441 average was sec-
nd in that department.
The disheartening thing for the
Wolverines is the fact that cur-

rently Knapp is eighth in battingI
among Gopher regulars with a .268
mark. Can this mean that the 1961
club has seven players who can
outswing the Gopher all-Ameri-
can? If figures don't lie, then it's
true.
Outfielder Roland Carlson cur-
rently tops the Gopher attack with
a modest .483 mark.Fastballer
Nathe, who was 4-1 in Big Ten

action last year, is no slouch at
.the plate either. He owns a .368
average and - embarrassingly
enough for the eight regulars-
leads the club in homers with two.
Lund will go with the same

power laden lineup that has pro-
duced eight homers in the last
three games. First-baseman Bill
Freehan leads the parade with six
round trippers but rightfielder Dick
DeLamielleure has the distance
mark with a 460'-plus blast against
Wayne State.
Minnesota Coach Dick Siebert
has been crying the blues all week
because three games scheduled for
last weekend with Iowa State
Teachers were cancelled due to
poor weather.
"This is by far the worst spring
we've had since I've been at Min-
nesota," he moans. "We haven't
been able to get outdoors all week
for practice."
Record Breaker
Siebert's despondency is not less-
ened from the fact that one of
his hurlers possesses probably the
most phenomenal ERA in history
-67.5. This chap-Rodney Wilke
by name-has pitched two-thirds
of an inning, allowed five hits, five
walks, and ten runs.
The Wolverines have no one who
can match Wilke, but then maybe
it's just as well. Lund has main-
tained since the beginning of prac-
tice that pitching holds the key
to the Wolveiines season.
But with all that hitting who
needs pitching?

By The Associated Press
The weather relented but the
Yankees and Tigers didn't as they
moved into a second place tie in
the American League yesterday, a
half game behind the idle Min-
nesota Twins.
The Yankees, idled since last
Monday because of rain, took a
doubleheader from the Los An-
geles Angels 7-5 and 4-2. The Ti-
gers clobbered the Cleveland In-
dians 11-4 after hammering Gary
Bell in the early innings. And, for
once, no game was postponed be-
cause of rain, snow or other foul
weather.
The Yanks, getting some sen-
sational hitting from Mickey
Mantle in the opener, chalked up

their fourth straight victory and
matched Detroit's 4-1 record. Min-
nesota (5-1) had an open date.
Early Wynn, 41-year-old Chica-
go pitcher, earned his 285th major
league pitching victory as the
White Sox whipped the Washing-
ton Senators 6-1 in the only oth-
er American League game.
In the Senior Circuit the San
Francisco Giants, with a sharply
shuffled lineup, beat the Cincin-
nati Reds 2-1 behind Mike McCor-
mick's four-hit pitching, and Chi-.
cago's Glen Hobbie shutout Pitts-
burgh 3-0.
Milwaukee won a night game
from Philadelphia, 7-6 in 11 in-
nings.
Mantle, who drove in all three
runs in the Yanks's last game on
Monday, sent in five more in to-
day's opener, hitting his second
and third home runs of the sea-
son. He had only one single in
the second game but drew two
walks that started Yank rallies
and scored one run.
The Angels not only lost their
fourth straight game since win-
ning the season opener but they
lost third baseman Eddie Yost for
about a week. Yost was hit on
the right hand by relief pitcher
Bill Stafford in the ninth inning
of the opener and X-rays at a

hospital showed a hairline frac-
ture of the middle finger.
The Yankee pitching was a bit
shaky. Art Ditmar had to have
relief help from Stafford after
Mantle's two homers off ex-Yan-
kee Eli Grba had given him a big
lead in the opener. Bob Turley
walked nine men in 7% innings
of the nightcap and was relieved
by Luis Arroyo.
For the Angels Ken Hunt, for-
mer Yankee utility outfielder, hit
two doubles, a triple and a hom-
er in the two games.

The Tigers jumped on Cleve-
land's Bell for four runs in the
first inning on Rocky Colavito's
double, two singles and two walks.
Then Norm Cash belted a three-
run homer in the fifth and that
was enough to assure Frank Lary
his second victory of the season.
Wynn, who made two unsuc-
cessful tries for victory 285 last
year and one earlier this year,
finally earned it with the aid of
homers by Roy Sievers, Jim Lan-
dis and.Al Smith.

Nobody can say that Michiganv
is not doing its part in trying to
develop interest in the so-called
minor sports which this country
has ignored throughout the era
of the modern Olympic Games.
Last night. marked the first
practice session of the brand new
University Fencing Club, which
welcomes all interested beginners
and experienced fencers.
The adviser to the club is Mar-
tin Taylor of the Romance Lan-
guage Department, and those in-
terested are asked to get in touch
with him.

"This school is the only one in
the Big Ten which does not have
a team," complains Taylor.
"Surely a sport which can offer
so much in the way of exercise
entertainment and a sense of
sportsmanship should besencour-
aged by all those whose interest
in athletics is sincere and goes
beyond partisanship," he contin-
ues.
As of now the club boasts a
membership of a dozen prospec-
tive fencers, but for the success
of the club others are needed to
take part.
