The Wolverine baseball team took advantage of the
perfect baseball weather yesterday afternoon to enter-
tain the Michigan baseball fans with an exciting fifteen
inning pitching duel in the first game of a double-
header with Northwestern. The Wolverines managed
to pick up two crucial conference wins as they swept
both ends of the doubleheader, 2-1 and 4-3.
Southpaw Pete Helt, who handled the Wolverine end
of the pitching marathon, registered nine strikeouts,
allowing seven hits, to pick up the win, while Robert
Artemenko went the whole route for Northwestern,
also allowing-seven hits.
The Wolverines scored the go ahead run in the fif-
teenth as catcher Dan Mulvihill led off the inning with
a sharp single over second.
Following Shortstop Mike Rafferttys sacrifice bunt
that moved Mulvihill to second, second baseman Jim
Kocolowski rifled a double over the rightfielder to
score Mulvihill and hand Helt the win after a grueling
performance in the heat.

teams blow a number of scoring opportunities until

ond game as Dan Fife and teammates managed to hang

the season.
The Wildcats struck first, scoring one run in the
top of the first as centerfielder George Greenfield
walked to lead off the game. A wild pitch from Fife
moved Greenfield to second and then Bob Artemenko

Tom Kettinger's line shot past the third baseman.
Fife survived a final inning rally that saw the Wild-
cats score two last minute runs on a walk, two singles
and a sacrifice to pick up the win.

overall with a 6-4 conference won-loss mark.
The Wolverines tackle another tough conference op-
ponent in their second straight double-header of the
weekend when they meet Wisconsin this afternoon at
one at Fischer stadium. The Badgers split a double-
header yesterday afternoon with the conference-lead-
ing, nationally-ranked Spartans of Michigan State; to
own a 6-6 conference, and 16-15 overall nark.
The Wolverines pitcher Helt, by staying the distance,
became the second leading pitcher in Big Ten history
for innings pitched, one inning behind Ohio State's
Steve Arlin who pitched 16 against Michigan in 1965.
