Blue batsmen bombard

By CHUCK BLOOM
Special To The Daily
BOWLING GREEN, Ohio
--When the Michigan Wol-
verines put on its traveling
gray uniforms, they must
have put on their hitting
clothes too as the Wolver-
ine batsmen pounded out
26 hits in yesterday's dou-
bleheader to swamp the
Bowling Green Falcons 5-2
and 7-1 at Warren E. Steller
field.
The sweep lifts the Wol-
verine record to 21-10 and
the Blue now await the cru-
cial weekend when they
h o s t Northwestern a n d
Wisconsin at Ray Fisher
Stadium.
Several players who normally
would not see action made hay
while the sun shined yesterday.
Reserve infielder Dave Chap-
man collected four hits on the
afternoon including a three for
three performance in the open-
ing game.
OUTFIELDER Mike Parker
also collected four hits and a
pair of RBI's.

Freshman Craig McGinnis (3-
1), started the opening game but
needed relief help from junior
Mark Weber in the sixth when
McGinnis tired. Michigan col-
lected its 13 hits in the first six
innings off loser Jim Joyce.
The Wolverines got on the
scoreboard first in the second
inning on a double by third
baseman Jeff James, an infield
ot, and Parker's sacrifice fly.
They scored again in the third
on Dick Walterhouse's double,
a stolen base, and a single by
Pete Ross.
A PARKER single. a sacrifice,
and a Chapman single produced
another Wolverine run in the
fourth.
Bowling Green picked up its
only two runs in the bottom of
the fifth on doubles by Fred
Jereb, Larry Owen and Joe
Meyer.
Michigan came back with two
hits of its own in the sixth in-
ning as Parker doubled to left
and came home on Dan Dami-
ani's single. On the throw home,
Damiani took second and cross-
ed homeplate on Chapman's
third hit of the game.
AFTER walking the leadoff
batter in the bottom of the
sixth, it was apparent that Mc-

Ginnis had reached his limit
and Coach Moby Benedict in-
sp-rted his ace reliever Weber.
Weber retired all six batters he
fsred to preserve the win.
In the second contest, Bill
Stennett (3-1). went the distance
limiting the Falcons to only four
hits.
The Maize and Blue picked
right up in the second game as
designated hitter Bill Haslerig,
brother of former Wolverine
grid star Clint Haslerig; led off
by crushing Dan Rebel's second
pitch over the 375 foot mark for
his first homerun and extra base
hit of the season.
MICHIGAN'S last run came
by way of the homerun column
as Pete Ross lofted his second
roundtripper of the year over
the fence in left. Bowling Green
briefly tied the game in the bot-
tom of the first on a walk, a
single by Owen, and a forceout
In the top of the second the
Wolverines tallied three runs to
salt the game away. Chapman
and Damiani led off the inning
with singles and after two bats-
men were gone, Haslerig drove
home Chapman and went to
second on an error by the left
fielder. Then Walterhouse pick-
ed up two RBI's with a solid

base hit to right field.
Michigan's other runs came
in the fifth on a walk to Hasle-
rig, a single by catcher Ted
Mahan (his third single of the
match), a Parker double, and
a passed ball.
STENNETT, whotwassshaky
at the start of the contest, set-
tied down and pitched strong
baseball from the fourth inning
on.
"It was a fun day for us,"
said coach M o b y Benedict.
"Everybody played, everybody
hit, and everybody had a good
time.
"I thought Stennett and Mc-
Ginnis pitched well and they
will be a de inite plus for us in
the future," he added.

Thinclads tune up for Big Tens

By AL HRAPSKY
With the Big Ten Champion-
ship meet just around the cor-
ner, Michigan's track team
tuned ip last Saturday against
the Chicago Track Club, and
snuttered to a lethargic 83-59
loss.
But head coach Jack Harvey
didn't take it on the chin and
could barely disguise the fact
that the Wolverines are looking
ahead to the Big Tens on Fri-
day in Iowa City.
"We really weren't con-
erred aout teamescores," he
said. "We were most concern-
ed, about good performances
and the competition."
The tracksters could manage
only four first place finishes in
17 events, but stalwarts Greg
Meyer (steeplechase) and Jeff
McLeod (quarter mile and mile
relays) did not run.
While Michigan's team score
was unimpressive, individual
performances by Andy Johnson,
Mark Foster, and Mike Mc-
Cruire, provided some consola-
"Andy ran the fastest time
its his life (1:50.8 for a third
place finish in the 880 yard
run)," Harvey stated. "And that
puts him in a position to place
very high in the Big Ten."
Although Foster, an Ann Ar-
bor Huron High alumnus, also
raced to his quickest time
ever -- a 4:08.2 clocking in
the mile run - he finished a
distant fourth. The winner in
that event, Ken Popejoy of
Chicago, equalled the Ferry
Field record of 4:01L4.
McGuire, a freshman who
holds the varsity record in both
the three and six mile runs,
turned in an excellent 13:46.6

in the three mile to lead the
field. Harvey has great expec-
tations for McGuire who has a
chance to break the world age
group record for 18 year olds in
the six mile run Friday.
"Mike has the second fastest
time in the Big Ten right now,
and has a real good chance to
win it," Harvey remarked.
Craig Virgin of Illinois,
however, is recovering from
an injury, and should pro-
vide stiff competition for Mc-
Guire.
Jesse Myers and Doug Gibbs
tied for first place in the high
jump with 6-8 leaps against the
Chicago Track Club while Jim
Stokes stole the show in the pole
vault at 15-6. The mile relay
team of Jim Htowe, Andy John-
son, Furst, and Dave Williams
captured the mile relay with a
3:16.7 clocking to round out the
Maize and Blue's first place
finishes.
While the Big Tens loom fore-
most in the Wolverines' minds,
they'll have trouble placing
any higher than third - at
least on paper.
"Illinois and Indiana will be
battling it out for first place,"
the Michigan coach said. "That
will leave Wisconsin, North-
western, Michigan State and us

to fight it out for third and
fourth."
Jeff McLeod, who hails
from exotic Jamaica, strained
a muscle last week but is
slated to run this weekend.
"A lot depends on, whether
McLeod is better and can run
well in the quarter mile and
mile relay," Harvey said. "We
could end tip as high as third
but first or second is pretty
distant."
Judging from times around
the Big Ten, a 3:08 to a 3:10
clocking will be necessary to
cop the mile relay title. Harvey
stressed that the competition
will be tight and that four

teams may go down to the last
leg.
Greg Meyer, defending cham-
pion in the steeplechase, will
have to have an excellent day
to repeat this year, as his best
time currently ranks third in
the Big Ten.
Harvey pointed out, how-
ever, that times are not of
the greatest importance in a
big meet.
"The times may be slower
because some of the guys are
coming off other events. It's
more a question of stamina,
who's healthy, and the general
competition."
