BLUE TIES CENTRAL IN NIGHTCAP:
The Michigan Daily-Wednesday, April 16, 1980-Page 9
By BUDDY MOOREHOUSE
and DREW SHARP
It was a day better suited for football
or even ice hockey yesterday at Fisher
Stadium, but the Michigan baseball
team braved the cold anyway, taking
on the visiting Central Michigan Chip-
Perhaps the Blue nine would have
been better off playing football or
hockey, as they dropped the first game
of the doubleheader 11-2, before
salvaging a 5-5 tie in the second game,,
which was called on account of
darkness after six innings of play.
Michigan drew first blood in the
opener. Centerfielder Greg Schulte led
off the bottom of the first with a sharp
single to center. He stole second on lef-
tfielder Fred Erdmann's strike out and
scored when designated hitter George
Foussianes' ground ball skipped past
the CMU first baseman's glove into
CMU tied the score in the second on
doubles by outfielders Forrest Hawkins,
and Mark Ward. Hawkins was a tough
out all day, going 4-for-4 in the contest.
Cary Kipke then laid a perfect bunt
down the third base line and beat it out
for an infield single.
It looked as though the Chippewas
would make a big inning out of it, but
, Michigan starting pitcher Scott Dawson
buckled down and retired the
Gooseeggs were continuously tallied
until the top half of the sixth when CMU
second baseman Doug Wabeke began
the inning with a walk. He advanced to
second on shortstop Dave Pagel's
sacrifice. Dawson walked the next bat-
ter which brought up Hawkins, who
promptly singled to left, loading the
bases. Wolverine coach Bud Middaugh
replaced Dawson with righthander Joe
All was for naught, however, when
CMU third baseman Mark Vanderlin-
den slashed a single, scoring three runs
when Schulte misplayed the ball in cen-
ter, allowing the 'hustling Hawkins to
score from first base.
The Wolverines got one run back in
the bottom of the sixth when Foussianes
smacked his fourth home run of the
season and the 17th of his career, a
CMU put the game on ice in the
seventh inning when leadoff hitter
Randy Meier walked with one out and
advanced to third when new pitcher
Tim Karazim threw away a pick off at-
tempt. Wabeke walked to put men on
first and third. Pagel came to bat and
hit a sure double play ball to shortstop
Tony Evans who booted the ball,
allowing the fifth CMU run to cross the
plate. Kurt Weise then followed with a
two-run double, making the score 7-1
and that spelled the end for Karazim.
He was replaced by Ypsilanti product
Mickey Kazmierski, who owned a 0.00
ERA coming into the game.
Kazmierski was rudely greeted by
Hawkins' fourth hit of the game, a run
scoring double to right. Vanderlinden
walked once again and set the stage for
Ward, who put the icing on the cake by
rocketing a three-run home run over
the left field fence.
Starter Dawson picked up the loss for
the Wolverines dropping his record to 3-
,1. Mark Fellows went all the way for
CMU, capturing the victory.
In the second game, Central wasted
no time getting their show in gear,
scoring two runs in the first inning off
Michigan hurler Scott Elam. Pagel got
Central on the board as he cracked a
double to left scoring Wabeke, who had
walked. Hawkins followed with a
single, scoring Page.
The Wolverines didn't delay in an-
swering their opponents, as they tallied
three runs in their half of the first. Cen-
terfielder Tom Fredal started the in-
ning off with a single, Randy Wroten
followed with a walk, and burly right-;
fielder Jim Paciorek brought everyone
home as he drilled a Brent Erickson
curveball over the left field fence, put-,
ting the Wolverines on top.
Michigan tallied another run in the'
second, as Garry Gawrych smacked a
double to left and then scored on a
single by Fredal, who was thrown out
trying to take second after Gawrych
Central came back in the third,
scoring two runs on two Michigan
errors. Pagel singled and then scored
on shortstop Sherm Stenson's throwing
error. Paciorek then dropped a flyball
SIR JOHN VANIRUGH'S
off Hawkins' bat, allowing Wiese, who
had singled, to score.
Michigan regained the lead in the bot-
tom of the third, as Foussianes took fir-
st on a fielder's choice, and stole
second. He scored on a single by first:
baseman Tim Miller,
Central wasted no time evening:
Michigan's run production, as they,
scored in the fourth. But the bats of both
teams were silent after that, as the
game was called at 7:00 p.m. on ac-
count of darkness.
The loss and tie puts the Wolverines
at 14-10-1 on the year, while the Chip-
pewas now boast a 18-7-1 mark.
Michigan will travel west this weekend
to face Wisconsin and Minnesota.

Led by Erving and Dawkins, who
scored 21 between them in the period,
the Sixers outscored Atlanta 14-2, to go

Atlanta rallied to lead by one twice
after that, but Philadelphia held a five-

ATLANTA TOOK the lead early in
the first period and, triggered by John-

Atlanta, however, as they had done
