THE MICHIGAN DAILY

Saturday, May 17, 1975

By CLARKE COGSDILL
It was a day Northwest-
ern's baseball team should
remember to forget.
Michigan. combining bril-
liant pitching and an un-
usual, solid attack, swept
th eWildcats at Ray L. Fish-
er Stadium yesterday, 7-0
and 9-0. C h u c k Rogers
struck out a season-high 10
men on the way to a five-
hitter in the opener, and
Mark Weber went him one
better, allowing but four
safeties, in the nightcap.
Now, the Wildcats go on
to East Lansing, where the
second-place Spartans took
a pair from Wisconsin yes-
terday to stay a half-game
behind the Wolverines in
the Big Ten title chase.
Michigan shouldn't n e e d,
and doesn't expect, any
help from yesterday's foes
in today's f i n a l day of
league action . . . but it
would certainly be appre-
ciated.
Wisconsin, the t e a m that
visits Ray L. Fisher Stadium
at 1:00 p.m. in today's twinbill,
went into yesterday's action
with a .342 team Big Ten batting
average. "All that tells me,"
said Michigan coach Moby Ben-
edict, "is that they haven't been
facing any good pitching. Good
pitching will stop good hitting
every time. EVERY time."
A Michigan sweep would
clinch the Big Ten title.
IN YESTERDAY'S action, not
only did good pitching stifle a
mediocre attack--a previously-
mediocre offense bomber the
league's seventh-best pitching
staff with numbing consistency.

Billy Jo signs wrestlers
Three of the top wrestling prospects in the country will be
enrolling at Michigan next fall. Coach Bill Johanneson will wel-
come to Crisler Arena Mark Churella, 155 pounds from Farming-
ton, Amos Goodlow, 126 pounds from Flint Northwestern, and
s heavyweight Lewis Smith of Paoli, Pa.
Churella is the real catch. Called the "best high school wrestler
to come out of the state since Jeff Callard", he was named the
outstanding wrestler and took the most falls trophy at the U.S.
Wrestling Federation Eastern Juniors meet. Goodlow, a state
champion, is almost as good. Lewis will double as a tackle for Bo
Schembechler.
Also enrolling for the fall are; Ed Burnham, 138, Battle Creek
Lakeview, Bill Petosky, 158, Ann Arbor Pioneer, Jeff Chudy, War-
ren Mott, Al Bowles, 167, Inglewood, Ca., Steve Halprin, 105,
Malone, N.Y., and Tim Malinak, 190, Flemington, Pa.
V. MSU woes-football
By The Associated Press
EAST LANSING - Ohio State football coach Woody Hayes
predicted last December that Michigan State University was
headed for trouble in its player recruiting, according to an MSU
football recruit John Vielhaber.
Big Ten Commissioner Wayne Duke refused specific comment
on the allegations or whether they might constitute a violation of
the Conference's "negative recruiting" rule, in which it is a
violation to tell potential football recruits anything but the facts
about a com-peing school.
Gridder charged with rape
PORTLAND, Ore. - Police arrested Woody Green, professional
football player with the Kansas City Chiefs, of the National
Football League, on a charge of rape Friday.
He is accused of raping a 16-year-old girl on May 11 at Loon
Lake, 36 miles northwest of Roseburg in western Douglas County.
Bail was set at $3,000.

WILDCAT third sacker Bill Buffie learns that it's too late; Wolverine designated hitter Mike
Parker has slid safely into third, to the approval of coach Moby Benedict (1). Michigan swept
the doubleheader, and only Wisconsin stands in the way of a Big Ten title.
