Michigan netters advance easily

Special To The Daily
PRINCETON - The Michigan net squad
got off to an excellent start in yesterday's
first round play in the NCAA Tennis tour-
ney. Sweeping all four matches, the Wol-
verines ended up with four points on the
day.
NCAA Tennis
The Maize and Blue netters swept three
singles matches and one doubles match
to chalk up their points. In NCAA tour-
ney play, a match victory is worth one
point.
Number six seed Victor Amaya, a fresh-
man from Holland, started the ball rolling
for the Wolverines with a 6-3, 7-5 victory
of John Holsscchmid of South Carolina.

Holsschmid, a Swiss native playing in his
first NCAA tournament as a freshman had
a record of 20-2 coming into the meet.
HOWEVER HE WAS SIMPLY not the
equal of Amaya's overpowering service
and departed from the action early.
Freddie De Jesus, a place seed (mean-
ing that he was ranked between 17 and
32), easily disposed of his opponent John
Kroa of Princeton by a 6-4 and 7-6 count.
De Jesus had been injured on a West
Coast jaunt and his performance in the
NCAA's was a question mark. Yester-
day's thrashing of the Princetonian left
no doubt as to whether or not De Jesus
could play with the best of them.
In the third Wolverine singles match of
the day, Jerry Karzen sent Steve Adolph
to an early shower with a 7-5, 6-2 per-
formance.

number one doubles combo, proved to be Jim Timmons of always strong Trinity

CLEVELAND--What the Detroit Tigers needed, after all,
was a leisurely visit to this graceful city on the banks of Lake
Erie. That and a look at the crumbling Indian pitching staff and
the weak Indian bats.
The Tigers, who were ripped in home contests by both
the White Sox and the 'Twins, started their tour of the East in
fine style whipping the Tribe, 5-1.
Jim Perry, rocked hard last Friday, proved his mettle last
evening when he hurled a four hitter.
The Tiger batters were eager to get into the fun, socking
three home runs.
Dick Sharon, Bill Freehan and Aurelio "Go-Go" Rodriguez
hammered home runs, tagging hapless Indian starter Brent
Strom with his seventh straight
defeat.
Sharon's second four-bagger of

in the fourth inning. Then re-

blanked in that department all
year, socked his first of the

The Tigers added to the fun
later in the inning when "Go-

to the showers with his sixth of
