TIGERS BEL T THREE OFF EX-MA TE:
etroit overpowers Toronto 6-2:
.en* * e.********* *.*.*'**...
Men netters ground
By JAMIE TURNER -
For an inning and a half, the Toronto
Blue Jays had the 52,528 fans at Tiger
Stadium wondering if the 1978 Detroit
club was as good as its early preseason
notices. Trailing 2-0 the Tigers came
thundering back to take the season
opener 6-2 and show that the team's
potential is indeed as good as adver-
Mark "The Bird" Fidrych settled
down from a shaky start to shut out the
Jays the rest of the way while Milt May,
Phil Mankowski and Jason Thompson
blasted homers off two different Toron-
to pitchers to ice the game.
BUT WHAT the crowd had on their
mind when the game ended was the
gangly Fidrych, who displayed the
same kind of magic that he possessed in
his rookie season in going the full nine
innings and giving up only five hits. Af-
ter the game ended the crowd
remained, insisting on Fidrych retur-
ning for the now customary curtain
The crowd roared throughout the nin-
th inning, reaching the highest pitch
when Fidrych ran around the mound
with two out, trying to grab four hot dog
wrappers thgt had blown onto the field.
"What happens if a ball hits it and
deflects off it?" said Fidrych after-
ward. "Besides, it's better to have the
batter sitting around waiting while I
pick them up."
FORMER TIGER pitcher Dave
Lemanczyk drew the starting assign-
ment for Toronto and successfully baf-
fled the Tigers the first time through
the batting order. But one look at the
righthander was enough for the Bengal
batters as they started hitting the ball
May brought Detroit within one with
his second inning solo blast into the up-
per deck. In the third, left-fielder Steve
Kemp drove in the tying run with a
single to left after third baseman
Mankowski had singled and moved to
second on designated hitter Rusty
Staub's single up the middle.
Detroit broke it open in the fourth
when rookie second sacker Lou
Whitaker doubled, keystone partner
Alan Trammell walked and Mankowski
lined a one strike pitch eight rows deep
in the right field upper deck to give the
locals a 5-2 lead.
LEMANCZYK LEFT the proceedings
at this point and Jesse Jefferson did a
solid job the rest of the way, giving up
only Thompson's towering blast which
landed on the right field roof in the
The win broke a string of five
Opening Day losses in a row for the
Tigers while continuing their mastery
of the Blue Jays at Tiger Stadium (8-0).
Jim Slaton will make his first start for
the Tigers in today's game and will be
opposed by Toronto's Jerry Garvin.
feisty Gophers, 5-4
By ERIC OLSON
Not everyone liked the balmy weather yesterday, including Michigan's
mens tennis team.
Playing their first match of the season outside, the netters battled high
winds and a tough Minnesota Gopher squad to squeeze out a 5-4 victory.
"This was our first match outdoors and it is very difficult to make the
switch from playing indoors to outdoors and Minnesota has played outside
before," said Wolverine Coach Brian Eisner.
"The wind, which favors the lesser player, made it hard for us to play
the way we wanted to," added Eisner.
At number one singles, Michigan's Jeff Etterbeek stopped Minnesota's
Mark Brandenburg in straight sets 6-4, 6-3; but at second singles Gopher
Mike Trautner edged Brad Holland 4-6, 6-3, 6-3.
Michigan also captured the number three and number six singles with
Jud Shaufler and Pete Osler winning, respectively.
Minnesota won four and five singles as Tom Nelson posted a 3-6, 6-3,
7-6 win over Ihor Debryn and Greg Wicklund defeated Jack Nienken 6-4, 6-3.
In doubles play the netters won two and lost one with all three matches
going three sets.
At one doubles Marty Horwitch and Etterbeek won a close decision over
Brandenburg and Mark Wheaton 6-4, 4-6, 6-2.
After dropping the first set 6-1, Ollie Owens and Osler bounced back to
win the next two 6-2, 6-3 to trounce the Gopher duo of Whicklund and Grady.
Trautner and Nelson beat Shaufler and Holland 6-2, 4-6, 6-4 'at second
"I'm pleased that we won because it was our first Big Ten match, but un-
fortunately we didn't play very well," said Eisner.
Today at home (1 p.m.) the netters will try to improve their 4-0 season
record against Big Ten foe Iowa.

Tumblers excel in NCAA tourney
Special to The Daily
Michigan gymnasts John Corritore
and Karl Badger have turned in im-
pressive showings in the compulsory
action in the NCAA tournament being
held in Eugene, Oregon.
CORRITORE WAS in second place
after the compulsories in the parallel
bars event, scoring a 9.65. He trails only
Yoichi Tomita from Long Beach, who is
in first place by virtue of his 9.7 score.

tongue-in-cheek affair, as "The Bird" employed all his gusto in mowing down the

Today's Michigan Match-ups
Barring another unforeseen catastrophe, Michigan's baseball team will
finally open its season this afternoon at Fisher Stadium against the Bowling,
Michigan was supposed to open its season last Tuesday, but alternate
days of rain and muddy conditions put off the opener each day until today.
Bowling Green posted a Florida record of 8-5 earlier this spring after
tying for fifth place in the Mid-American Conference last year.
The Falcon stars include second baseman Chuck Black, who hit .386 last
year, and centerfielder Jeff Groth (.349).
Michigan will pitch lefties Steve Howe and Craig McGinnis in the 1 p.m.
doubleheader. -GARY KICINSKI
Michigan's newest varsity sport, women's.softball, takes to the road
today to face the likes of Northwestern and Chicago State Universities in an
opening day doubleheader in Evanston, Ill.
Coach Gloria Soluk is unsure of exactly what to expect from her first
year team. Yet they do appear to be evenly matched with Northwestern,
another first year squad, who will be sporting an all-freshman lineup.
"We do have two pretty fair pitchers," noted Coach Soluk. Getting the
starting nods for the Wolverines today will be Teresa Gardoski and Shelley
Piilo. -LISA KAPLAN
Today the highly successful Michigan men's track team heads to the full-
sized tracks and sunny blue skies of the outdoor season.
The cream of the team will vie for points in the prestigious Texas Relays
in Austin while the rest of the squad squares off in the Ohio University
Relays in Athens.
Competing at Texas are the 400 meter and distance medley relay crews,
both featuring world record holder James Grace in the anchor position.
,NCAA runner-up Jim Stokes in the pole vault and 25' long jumper James
Henry will round out the Wolverine attack.
Weather and injuries permitting, the women's track team will also take
to the track this afternoon, against Illinois at Champaign.
