The Michigan Wolverine bats-
men swing into the final stretch
of their Big Ten campaign this
weekend with the hope that they
can wrap up the runners-up posi-
tion to conference champion,
Iowa. Today, the Wolverines (7-
3) visit Wiscinson (5-6) for a
twinbill that will start at 2 p.m.,
while Northwestern (9-5) hosts
Michigan for another double-
header tomorrow to conclude the
season for both teams.
In addition to the Wolverines,
both Northwestern and Michi-
gan State (7-3) also have a shot
to secure second place.
Although Coach Moby Bene-
dict's squad is concentrating on
that second place spot, there are
still a number of team and in-
dividual titles that are at stake
in these last four games.
Currently Michigan is riding
high in newly released Big Ten
statistics. The team itself leads
the league in hitting with a
sparkling .312 mark. And hurler

Mickey Elwood, although just 2-
2 on the season, boasts the low-
est ERA, a brilliant 0.92.
Nevertheless, these statistical
leaders are quite susceptible to
fluctuation as MSU pitcher Brad
Van Pelt is breathing down El-
wood's neck with a 0.93 arned
run average and Nortnwestern
is second to the Wolverines with
a team batting mark of ,301.
Although Benedict made no of-
ficial announcement of which
starter he will use bot h days,
it is fairly certain taat Pete
Helt, Mike Forhan, ief';hander
Tom Joyce, and Elwood will get
the nod. Joyce, the west toil-
ing of the bunch, leads Michigan
in innings hurled with 41, while
posting a 3-2 record and an ERA
of 3.05.
Against the Badgers, Michigan
should see action against south-
paws Andy Otting (6-2, ERA 2.2)
and Dan Domski (2-5, ERA 3.14).
For the Badgers' sake, these
two had better be able to con-

Lain the Michigan attack for
the Wisconsin offense, outside of
two players, seems to be lack-
ing talent.
Tom Shipley, who fields both
shortstop and centerfield, is bat-
ting a strong .351 and his 46 hits
puts him third on the Badgers'
all time hit parade behind Harv-
ey Kuenn's 48 in 1952, and Rick
Reichard's 47 in 1964. Besides
for Shipley, only Greg Mahlberg,
a hird baseman, seems to hit
with authority, batting .301.
Against Northwestern, hitting
should be the name of the game
as evidenced by both squads
team batting averages. The
Wildcats sport two especially
talented sluggers in third base-
man, Ed Grzelakowski, leading
the Big Ten in hitting with a
.467 average and second sack-
er, John McCarthy swinging at
a .444 clip, good for third in the
league.
The Wolverines counter w it h
Brian Balaze, with a team lead-
ing .407 mark, MarktCrane at
.400 and Greg Buss, who plays
basketball in the off season, at
.357.
Aseep of the four games
woild assure Michigan of at
least a tie for second place. The
Spartans of Michigan State wind
up things with a pair today at
Northwestern and two against
Wisconsin tomorrow. The only
other action this weekend pits
Indiana (2-11) against O h io
State (4-10) in a battle to remain
out of the conference's deg
house.

ods? If so, then the Sports Staff
is for YOU. It's good clean fun
and healthy, too.
