WOLVERINES SWEEP, 4-3, 10.0

By BRIAN MARTIN '
The sign on the locker room door at
Fisher Field reads: Big Ten Champs 1975,
Big Ten Champs 1976, BIG TEN CHAMPS,
1977!
If the play of the Wolverines yesterday
is any indication, they may fulfill the
sign's predictions.
MICHIGAN'S BASEBALL team swept a
doubleheader from Western Michigan, 4-3
and 10-0. The Big Ten season starts Sat-
urday with a doubleheader against Min-
nesota and the Wolverines, now 9-6, are
ready to repeat their championship sea-
son.
Once again, second baseman Scott An-
derson sparked Michigan both on the field
and at the plate.
"Anderson r e a 11 y complements the
team," said Coach Moby Benedict. "Sec-
ond base was one of our question marks
in the spring, but Anderson won the job
and he's been there ever since."
Yesterday, the big bat belonged to short-
stop Jim Berra. After a slow start in the
spring, he rapped four hits in seven trips
to the plate, including his first home run

in his collegiate career.
"I was overswinging, so I waited on the
pitch and slapped it out," said Berra of
his 360-foot blast.
"IT'S ALWAYS nice to see Jimmy hit,"
Benedict said. "Shortstop-is such a key
position and demands so much concet-
tration that it is extremely difficult to
maintain a high batting average."
Benedict's coaching philosophy relies
heavily on his shortstop, catcher, and
pitcher. Yesterday all three of his key po-
sitions came through for him, plus the
other spots in the lineup for the two big
wins.
The first game placed Blue pitching ace
Bill Stennett against the Broncos' Dave.
Cassetto. Stennett hurled five strong in-
nings before being replaced by the event-
ual winner Kevin Clinton, now 2-0.
"Stennett is going to pitch Saturday, so
I didn't want to put him too far today after
he went ten innings last Friday," Benedict
said. "I wanted to get a look at Clinton-
he's going to be our stopper this year."
Western jumped out to an early lead in
the first game by pushing one run across

the plate in the second inning and in-
creased its margin to three in the fifth.
IN MICHIGAN'S half of the fifth inning,
the Wolverines pulled within one run as
two runners came home on rightfielder
Mike Parker's double down the left field
line.
The Wolverines won the game by scor-
ing two more in the sixth. Centerfielder
Rick Leach led off the inning with a walk
and advanced to third on Bob -Wasilew-
ski's single to right field.
After Mark Knust came in to relieve
Cassetto, Michigan catcher Ted Mahan
greeted his first pitch by spanking a
single to right, scoring Leach.
Designated hitter Greg Lane pushed a
bunt by Knust's outstretched arm, load-
ing the bases. With two outs, Parker split
the seam between the shortstop and third
baseman to score Mahan with the winning
run.
The second game's one-sided slugfest,
highlighted by Berra's home run, saw eight
of the nine Wolverine batters getting at
least one hit and the Blue scored in every
inning except its final at-bat in the sixth:

MICHIGAN'S JUNIOR right fielder Mike Parker received
the worst of this confrontation with WMU's catcher Scott
Meyer. Although Parker was tagged out in this fifth-inning
action of game one, the Blue scored enough to win, 4-3, and
demolished the Broncos in the second game, 10-0.

Horton now a RangerI
The Detroit Tigers traded veteran Willie Horton to the Texas
Rangers yesterday and, after the power-hitting outfielder agreed
to report, said they would get relief pitcher Steve Foucault from
the Rangers.
Horton as a player with at least 10 years in the majors and
five with one club, had the right to reject the trade. But he
agreed to the deal.
Foucault, who has not pitched this season, has a career re-
cord of 25-25. Last year he was 8-8 with five saves and a 3.32
earned run average. --AP
Where are those guys?
The Michigan women's tennis team thought it had a match
scheduled for home yesterday. The Central Michigan women's
tennis team thought it had a match scheduled for home yester-
day also.
Since they were supposed to play each other, it shouldn't
have been too much of a surprise when the match was post-
poned due to a scheduling misunderstanding.
The match will probably be rescheduled for next week. The
women netters supposedly host Miami of Ohio Friday at 3:00
p.m. If they can get their schedules together. -DAILY SPORTS
Prep cagers dunk Italy
Mannheim, West Germany - The defending champion United
States high school all-stars lambasted Italy, 131-75, after leading
66-41 at halftime yesterday for their third 'straight victory in the
12-nation Albert Schweitzer basketball tournament.
Darnell Valentine, 6-0 guard from Wichita, Kan. was the
leading American scorer with 30 points, followed by highly-
recruited Earvin Johnson, the 6-7 forward from Lansing, with 18
points. Eddie Johnson, 6-6 forward from Chicago, added 16.
The best Italian scorers were Flavio Colombo and Do-
menico Fantin, each with 15 points.
Johnson led the team with 11 rebounds and Tommy Baker,
6-1 guard from Jeffersonville, Ind., had nine assists.
Yesterday's triumph left the Americans the only undefeated
team in their group. -AP
Celtics kick Spurs
Boston - Jo Jo White and Charlie Scott broke open a close
game with a fourth-period blitz as the Boston Celtics began their
title defense with a 104-94 victory over the San Antonio Spurs
last night.
In a contest which they led only 73-69 beginning the fourth
quarter, the Celtics had six scorers in double figures paced by
White with 24. -AP

An excellent guard prospect is

Syracuse and Michigan.
The big question for most
people is Lansing Everett's
Earvin Johnson. Johnson re-

April 17th, and is expected to
wait a few days before an-
nouncing his decision.
The talk is that Earvin will
stay in the Lansing area and
attend Michigan State. However,
Orr talked to him at the Mc-
Donald Classic All-Star game in
Washington, D.C. on March 31,j
and Johnson said at that timel
that Michigan was still in the
running. '
