pleas never got beyond the level of the

Pennant race
League-leading Minnesota must
win only three of four Big Ten
baseball games today and to-
morrow to clinch at least a tie
for the championship and a berth
in the NCAA tournament.
The Gophers head into double-
headers this weekend, today
against last place Purdue, and
tomorrow against Illinois, tied
for eighth place, with a 10-4 sea-
son record and a one-game lead
over Michigan.
The Wolverines, 9-5, play twice
at Ray Fisher Stadium against
Wisconsin today and two against
Northwestern tomorrow.
Wisconsin retained a mathe-
matical chance at the title since
a four-game sweep and two Min-
nesota wins could life the Bad-
gers to the crown.
Should Minnesota win three of
four and Michigan sweep all four
games, the two would tie for
the title . but Minnesota would
get the tournament bid since it
outscored the Wolverines 6-3 in
their two games this season.
If both Minnesota and Mich-
igan should falter, the champ-
