BATSMEN SEEK REVENGE
M' nine to confront Spartans

By JON WELLS
The Michigan baseball team will
have a chance today to avenge a defeat
that denied the Wolverines the 1979 Big
Ten championship. Picking up where
they left off last year, the Blue nine
open their Big Ten season against1
defending champion Michigan State
with a home and home series that.
begins this afternoon at Fisher
Stadium.
On May 19 of last year, in the second
to last gameof the season, the Spartans
seized the Big Ten crown by defeating
Steve Howe and Michigan, 8-5.
Although the Wolverines whitewashed
State the next day, the Spartan niner
finished a half game better than
Michigan who played one less game.
Many things have changed since last1
year which give this weekend's con-
frontation a distinctly different tone
thanits 1979 counterpart.
Most of the central characters for
Michigan have departed. Moby
Benedict, Wolverine coach for 17
seasons, is gone. Pitcher Steve Howe
now spends his afternoons and evenings
in the Los Angeles Dodger's bullpen.
Pitcher Steve Perry, who hurled a
three-hit shutout against the Spartans
in the season finale, now pitches in the
Dodger farm system. Rick Leach plays
for Evansville, the Detroit Tigers AAA
farm club.
Whatever desires for revenge that
certain veterans may have, the main
task for this predominantly young and
untested team, under the leadership of its

managed only five victories in 15 games
thus far.
The backbone of Spartan coach Dan-
ny Litwhiler's offense is formed by
switch-hitting leftfielder Ken Robinson
(;5), catcher Eric Payk (.364), right-
fielder Mark Russ (.346), and shortstop
Al Dankovich (.341).
On the mound, State will throw the
same pair of righthanders that faced
Michigan in the series last year. Brian
Wolcott (1-2) was the winning pitcher
in the Spartan victory while Jay
Strother (1-3) took a 6-0 Blue pasting in
the finale.
Junior righthander Mark Clinton will
get the starting nod for today's game,
with freshman righty Steve Ontiveros a
tentative starter for Sunday's game at
East Lansing.

knocked in three runs with a single and
double to lift the Kansas City Royals to
a 4-0 victory over the Detroit Tigers last
night behind the six-hit pitching of
Wrry Gura.
The shutout enabled Gura to match
his 1979 season total and up his career
ledger to eight. He walked two and
struck out five, including Lou Whitaker
and Jason Thompson twice apiece.
' Kansas City scored the only run it
needed in the fifth inning on a single by
Hal McRae, a walk to John Wathan and
a single to center by LaCook to ruin Dan
Schatzeader's American League debut.
The Royals chased Schatzeder with
ree more runs in the seventh. McRae

intentionally walked to get to LaCook,
who promptly belted a two-run double.
LaCook scored when Bobby Detherage
followed with a single.

Assistant coach Dan Hall reflected
the priorities of the new season. "I don't
really think that revenge is the main
theme. A lot of the players from last
year are gone, but just knowing the
rivalry that exists between these two
teams makes these games some of the
biggest of the season."

Liberty Racquet Club may be an
ocean away from London, but at times
yesterday the Michigan men's tennis
team appeared to be playing in the
English city.
"We seemed to be in a fog", ex-
plained coach Brian Eisner referring to
his Wolverines' 8-1 victory over Iowa.
"We just weren't concentrating and we
did not return serve well. Overall, we
played a very mediocre match", added
Eisner.
A couple of factors may have con-
tributed to the sub-par play, including
the change to the Liberty Racquet Club.
"The switch from the slower courts at
the Track and Tennis Building may
have affected the timing", noted
Eisner.
In addition, the familiar nemesis of
overconfidence could have entered into

the picture as Iowa was fresh off of two
decisive losses at home.
AN EXCEPTION to the rule yester-
day was freshman Mark Mees, who oc-
cupied the number one spot for the first
time this season. Mees disposed of
Iowa's highly touted Tom Holtmann 6-4,
6-3 to commence Wolverine victory
number ten, against one defeat.
At number two, sophomore Michael
Leach battled to fight off Greg Ander-
son 6-4, 7-5 and at number three, a pair
of Matts dueled with the Wolverines'
Horwitch easily winning over
Hawkeyes' Smith 6-1, 6-2.
Due to the nagging back problems of
senior Jud Shaufler, Jack Neinken
filled in at number four, successfully
defeating Brian Johnson 6-1,6-3. With
Neinken mved up to number four,
freshman Tom Haney played number
five, eliminating Tim Jacobson in a see-
saw match.
Freshman Louie McKee played six
singles and much to his dismay, found
himself as the "1" in the final score.
MKee fell to Dan Rustin in three sets 6-
2,12-6, 6-3.
WITH AN insurmountable 5-1 lead af-
ter singles competition, Michigan
atruggles to maintain intensity in the
three doubles matches. Two of the
doubles matches went three sets, in-
cluding Michigan's formidable number
one team of Horwitch and Leach. The
duo statted out fast, faltered in the
second set, and then finally finished off
Iowa's Holtmann and Anderson 6-1, 5-7,
6-2.
At number two, a carbon copy of the
first doubles match occurred with
Haney and Neinken defeating the
Hawkeyes' Smith and Dave maurer in
three sets 6-4, 3-6, 6-2. Contrary to the
other doubles matches, the number
three team of freshmen Mees and Dan
McLaughlin played very well, accor-
ding to Eisner, in their straight set
disposal of Rustin and Jacobson 6-3, 6-2.
