"You couldn't go to Tiger
Stadium and see any better
base ball than what you saw1
today," described Michigan
Coach Moby Benedict of yes-
terday's doubleheadersweep at
the expense of Detroit.
Those of you who made the
trip to the Tigers' opener on
Thursday and also saw yester-
day's games would readily
agree with Benedict's analysis.
The Wolverines outlasted De-
trait in a ten-inning marathon,
3-2, then rallied to win the sec-
ond game, 4-2.
: THE FIRST GAME featured
excellent pitching performances
by both the Titans' Mike Polvi
and Michigan's Bill Stennett.




Pistons slap 76'ers
as Lanier returns

Stennett lost his no-hitter in the
sixth inning when centerfielder
Mike Robbins slapped a line
drive to left field.
Polvi shut off the Michigan
bats when he needed to and
limited the Blue batmentto six
scattered, hits until he was
pulled after hurling nine and
one-third innings.
Although Stennett pitched for;
the entire ten innings, he threw
only 118 pitches striking out
seven. "That's the first time
that he has thrown in a game
situation in four weeks," said
ida for a ten game season, bad
weather conditions have pre-
vented Michigan from playing

their games and limited prac- by looping a single into left

Finally, in Michigan's half of
the tenth inning, designated
hitter John McEldowney led
off with a walk. McEldowney
stole second on Jim Merra's
swinging third strike and ad-
vanced to third on the throw-
ing error by Titan catcher Pat
DETROIT coach Bob Miller
chose to yank Polvi in favor of
senior reliever Jack Booth.
Catcher Jim Capoferi was the
first batter to face Booth, -and
sent him right to the showers

Although the scoring came
late in the first game, Michi-
gan jumped out quickly into the
lead on the strength of a home
run cranked by firstbaseman
Bob Wasilewski. This spotted
the Wolverines with a fast two
run lead as it brought in left-
fielder MarktGrankoski, who
had led off with a double.
After Detroit tied the game,
Scott Anderson singled and ad-
vanced to second on Rick
Leach's sacrifice bunt. Wasi-
lewski was intentionally walk-
ed and then took third as An-
derson scored on design~ated
hitter Greg Lane's single.
!WASILEWSKI ended the
scoring by romping home on a
perfectly executed suicide

Special Ta The Daily
DETROT-Fair warkin t°he rest of tb. NBA: Bob
Lanier is back.
And the timing couldn't have been better.
The Pistons superstar center made his, presence
felt last night against the Philadelphia 76ers, leading
the playoff, bound Detroiters to a 116-112 Cobo Aret
,After sitting out 15 straight games witha-brokeif hand,
Lanier tallied 25 points and - grabbed 12 rebounds .. n 38
minutes of action, showing no ill effects from his still
bandaged right hand.
After the game, Lanier revealed that he did not-expect
to play more than 15-20 minutes in the contest.
"No way did I expect to -llay so much," he said. "I
was just a victim of cirmumstances because of our"
foul trouble."
With Piston forward M. L. 'Carr apd LeO Douglas out
early in the fourth quarter and fellow front court iniiAlM
Eberhard nursing a twisted knee in the dressing room, Lan-
ier took charge in the final stanza.
But the man that most of the 11,080 fans came to-,see
was the famed Dr. J, Julius Erving.
Philadelphia's medicine man failed to disapp7Oint' the
throng, registering the game's firstbasket six seconds fter
the opening tipoff on a flying dunk. He went on-to lead
all scorers with 32 points. -
The see-saw affair was tied .at 79 going into the deciding
last quarter. The two teams traded baskets before the
Pistons took a 92-91 lead with eight minutes left that they
never relinquished.

Michigan men's tennis Coach
Brian Eisner. "It makes a

the whole court. It also makes
a player think creatively."
"I was hoping we'd play out-
side," sighed Eastern Michi-
gan's Coach Ellis Freatman.
"Our players don't have time
to adjust to the different sur-
face here."
Well, Michigan was creative
and Eastern just couldn't ad-

plained, "because it helps me
But Etterbeek wouldn't let
up as he continuously put his
two-handed backhand well out
of Lambert's reach.
Michigan won every match
in straight sets as evidenced
by second seeded Judd Shau-
fler powering his way to an
easy 6-1, 6-0 win over oppon-
ent Dave Chandler.

Holland worked harder than

Fourth seeded Mark Freed--'

Eisner, but number five player

over Len Baziuk really made

The Wolverines completed
their sweep of all six singles

Tonight in the Modern Languages Building
(Elia Kazan. 1954) 7:00 ONLY-MLB 3
Brando and Kazan join forces in this intense drama about labor
union corruption on the docks of New Jersey. Brando's shattering
performance as the punch-drunk longshoreman who "coulda
been a contender" is among the finest in cinema. Music by Leonard
Bernstein. Academy Awards for Best Actor (Brando), Supporting
Actress (Eva Marie Saint), Best Film, art direction, cinematog-
raphy, direction, and edition. Rod Steiger, Karl Malden, Lee J.
(Elia Kazan, 19511 9:00 only-MLB 3
The genius of Tennessee Williams is brought strikingly to the
screen by Kazan. Brando and cast. With his performance as the
-brutish Stanley Kowalski, Brando established his position in the
pantheon of actors, Vivian Leigh's award-winning portrayal of
Blanche DuBois is equally good, evoking horror and pity. Intense
and passionate, this is one of the most successful "films of a
play" ever made. SPECIAL DEAL: Anybody wearing a Plain,
White tee-shirt (like Brando/Kowlaski in STREETCAR gets into
the show for $1.00). Marlon Brando, Vivien Leigh, Karl Maiden,
Kimh Hunter.
