by DAN BORUS
The Michigan Wolverines
broke out of their batting dold-
rums with a fury yesterday and
laced the Ohio State Buckeyes
twice, 7-0 and 12-0. The Wol-
verines also got fine pitching
from Mickey Elwood, who lost
his bid for a no-hitter in the
first game in the sixth frame,
and Tom Joyce, who scattered
four hits in the second contest.
The Wolverines were never
threatened and toyed with a
series of weak and ineffective
Ohio State hurlers.
Today the Wolverines, now
5-3 in the Big Ten and with an
outside chance remaining to win
the conference title, host In- .
diana in a 1:00 p.m. doubler-
header. Pete Helt and Craig
Porhan are Michigan's probable
pitchers.
The first game was broken up
in the third frame when Buck-
eye hurler Lyall Fulkes walked
the first two men he faced and
misfielded a bunt by Elwood.
With the bases loaded and no-
body out, Greg Buss stroked a
ball two count offering to the
power alley in right center,
scoring all three men. Mike De-
Cou lofted the first pitch to
right field, scoring Buss.
Meanwhile Elwood was mow-
ing down the Buckeyes with a
fine assortment of curves and
off-speed pitches.
Larry Haney, the Buckeye
lead-off hitter, was the first and
only Buckeye to hit safely off
Elwood, when he smacked a
drive to the hole in the sixth
which Wolverine shortstop Mark
Crane gloved but threw to first
base a bit too late to retire
Haney. The game was the sec-
ond straight one-hit outing by
the Michigan right hander.
The Michigan nine got three
more runs in the bottom of the
sixth against Larry Shields, who

was pitching in place of Fulkes.
Mark Crane worked the re-
liever for a walk and took sec-
ond on Elwood's sacrifice. Buss
continued to sting the ball, this
time to center field, sending
home Crane. Buss took third on
a throwing error by the center
fielder.

ball results, flip back to

He then came home when
Ohio's second baseman Haney
booted DeCou s grounder. Leon
Roberts countered with a stroke

to left, moving DeCou to second.
A free pass to Sullivan proved
costly as Brian Balaze singled to
center scoring DeCou.
The rally was broken up when
John Lonchar grounded to the
third baseman who pegged
home, forcing Roberts, The
catcher thinking he could get
Lonchar threw to first. Sullivan,
meanwhile had not slowed and
in trying to score was cut down
by, the return to home.
The second game was an even
easier waltz as the Wolverines
pounded Buckeye pitching for
thirteen hits and twelve runs.
The fun started in the second
inning. Lonchar, Hornyak,

Dear Bugle:
"Something strange has hap-
pened. An unusual recording by
a relatively unknown artist has
made it big on Top 40 radio. I im
referring to "American Pie" by
Don McLean,
Now that's not really the
strange part.What is strange is
that many supposedly aware
people have condemned the
record as being top 40 shit!
I object!
I would ask these dilletantes,
some of whom have indignantly
and pedantically complained to a
WZMF morning jockey about his
playing the record, to listen with
awareness and sensitivity to the
whole recording.
Let McLean speak of the day
"Music" died. The "Music" of
another age. An age when it was
so very good and easy not to have
to think too deeply. Yesterday,
when your troubles seemed far
away. Allowe McLean to outline
for you a no history teacher ever
has, the events that brought us
where we are today... the demise
of Elvis, the incredible influence
of the Beatles, the assasination of
President Kennedy, the Demo-
cratic convention of 1958, the
passing of Janis Joplin and all
that meant,.the inauguration of
President Nixon, and the moon
flights... to mention just a few.

Alfter that first big step, listen
to McLean's "American Pie"
album! McLean shows himself to
be not only a wonderful musician
but an intensely beautiful poet.
One cut, "Vincent,' says all
there is to know about the genius
that was Vincent Van Gogh Mind
you, Don McLean does not write
song lyrics but poetry. McLean's
story' of Van Gogh's struggle with
himself and with an audience'
which was not yet ready to even
tolerate him fills the listener with
rage and pity.
I find very, very little of any
real value in the wide world of
art. Don McLean is an exception.
In the midst of a thousand heroic
attempts, McLean has made it.
Not since Dylan have I been so
excited about a poet-musician.
Please listen to hin!"
