Irish take two from Blue

Michigan loses first
in extras, 5-4; then
gets blown out, 13-5

Special To The Daily
SOUTH BEND - Michigan
was nipped in the opener and
nailed in the nightcap as Notre
Dame swept a doubleheader
from the Wolverines yesterday.
The Irish took the first game
in eight innings, 5-4, and ex-
ploded with a 12-run inning to
win the second game, 13-5. The
double loss drops Michigan's
record to 12-13. In non-confer-
ence games, the Wolverines
have lost six straight and seven
of their last eight.
Michigan resumes its confer-
ence schedule with home double-
headers against Ohio State Sa-
turday and Indiana Sunday.
In yesterday's opener, Rick
Pullano's third hit of the game
knocked in Dave DeFacci with
the winning run with two out
in the eighth. DeFacci had
doubled off losing pitcher Dan
Chapel (0-1), who went the
last 4 and a third innings.
Michigan jumped to a 2-0 lead
in the first on singles by Dave
Chapman, Rick Leach and Bill
Haslerig plus an Irish error.
Three more singles by Jim
Berra, Mark Grenkoski and
Chapman added another run in
the second.
Notre Dame came back with
two in the third and two in the

fourth off starter Stere Perrv.
The tying and go-ahead runs
were unearned. Michigan re-
tied the game in the sixth when
11 slerig singled and rwinded
the bases on a wild pitch and
two passed balls.
The two teams traded un-
earned runs to start the second
game, and then the Wolverines
bjilt a 5-1 lead before the roof
fell in. RBI singles by Dan
D miapi and Grenkoski scored
two in the second. In the third,
Berra walked and Grenkoski
singled, and both came home
after a balk, a wild pitch and
a Chapman double.
nix 108, Golden State 101.
Series tied 1-1.
Ace Lary Sorensen coasted
throgh those first three innings,
giving p only two hits, and Bill
Stennet was given the chance
to start the fourth. Notre Dame
responded with back-to-back
dobles, a home run, a single,
a bunt (Stennet threw wide to
second), and an infield single
to fill the bases.
Tom.Owens relieved and
forced in the tying and go-ahead
runs with walks. Two more
singles followed to finish Owens.
Chapel took over and his stay
was highlighted by a three-run
homer by Chuck O'Connor.
For Notre Dame in the
fourth: 16 batters, 12 runs,
nine hits, one Wolverine error,
three walks, three wild pitches,
two home runs and two
doubles.eStennet was charged
with the loss. Mitch Stoltz
went all the way for the Irish,
giving up eight hits.
Bright spots for Michigan in
the windy, dusty day for Michi-
gan were Chapman's four hits,
Grenkoski's three and Leach's
three. Notre Dame finished its
season at 16-24.

CINCINNATI'S ED ARMISTER seems more than a bit annoyed at being called out on strikes
and appears to be contemplating what a 35-inch piece of wood would do to change Ed Runge's
mind if applied with considerable force to the umpire's head. Cincinnati won anyway 2-0.

tennis routs, could only manage to win at number one and
three singles. Eric Friedler raised his record to 13-1, and
Jim Holman continued to be impressive taking his match
in three sets.
The number one doubles combination of Friedler and
Jeff Etterbeek lost for the first time all season after ten
straight triumphs.

12-3. Michigan will close out its four game road swing at
