Hurons haress Michigan

4 "Wo

The Eastern Michigan Hurons
proved why they are one of the
nation's best baseball teams,
yesterday, gaining a pair of vic-
tories over Michigan at Fisher
The first game featured a
barrage of hits and an exciting
finish, as EMU won 7-6, on
T ho m Boutin's eighth-inning
home run. Eastern followed that
with a standout performance by
pitcher John Martin who shut-
out the Wolverines 5-0, to com-
plete the doubleheader sweep.
The MAC champion Hurons
will be one of four teams in the
NCAA mideast regionals, join-
ing Southern Illinois, Illinois
State and the Big. 10 champ,
either Michigan, MSU or Min-
In the opener, Michigan hur-
ler Craig McGinnis and his
counterpart Bud Yanus posted

goose eggs in the first inning,
but once Michigan opened the
scoring in the bottom of the
second, the hitters took over.
First baseman Bob Wasilew-
ski staked the Wolverines to a
short 1-0 lead, poking a two-out
home run. Eastern tied it up in
the top of the third when left
fielder Ted Dasen singled home
third baseman Brian Petroff who
had walked and stolen second
The Hurons increased their
lead to 4-1, when catcher Jerry
Keller doubled, went to third
on Glenn Ambrose's ground out
to first, and scored on a Boutin
double. Boutin had three hits
and a walk in the first game.
A sacrifice and an error brought
in two more runs. Keller poled a
home run in the fifth to up the
EMU) advantage to 5-1.
Michigan fought back stub-
bornly, tallying two runs in

the bottom of the fifth, when
second baseman Dick Walter-
house singled with two outs,
advanced on Ricky Leach's
safety and scored on Bill Has-
lerig's two-bagger. L e a c h
scored later on a ground out.
The Maize and Blue tied it at
five all in the bottom of the
sixth. Shortstop Jim Berra
walked, went to second on a
wild pitch, took third on an
error and came home on Dave
Chapman's RBI single. Walter-
house followed with a sacrifice
fly to knot the score.
After EMU went ahead in the
top of the seventh, Michigan
tied it up again when Haslerig
singled, center fielder Dan
Damiami doubled and catcher
Jim Capoferi bounced out.
But Eastern won the game
with two out in the eighth, when
Boutin hit a tremendous home
run that travelled nearly 400

feet into the wind.
Michigan rallied in the home
half, putting two men on base,
but Leach and Haslerig went
down swinging to end the game.
In the night cap, the Hurons
scored all the runs they needed
in the top of the first. Michi-
gan starter Bill Stennett walk-
ed the lead-off man, gave up
a double and a wild pitch, and
allowed a run when Keller's
topper back towards the
mound enabled runner Dan
Schmitz to scurry home.
A single, double and infield
hit upped EMU's lead to 3-0 in
the second, putting the Wolver-
ines into a deep hole.
Pitcher John Martin dug the
hole deeper before the Hurons

buried Michigan for good. He
kept the Maize and Blue in
check throughout the game, al-
lowing only six scattered singles,
and thwarting any Michigan
threats before they became
Three singles gave Eastern a
four run cushion, and the Hurons
added their final run in the
final frame taking advantage of
a single, an error And an infield
Michigan's attempts to mount
an offensive against Martin were
futile, the farthest the Wol-
verines' got was an error and
an infield hit in the seventh,
before Chapman, Walterhouse
and Wasilewski were retired to
preserve the shutout.
