Broncos buck

4-3, 6-5

I

By MARTHA CRALL
and BOB WOJNOWSKI
dne game was inordinately long and
the other unusually short, but the result
was the same both times. The Michigan
baseball team took a double drubbing
from Western Michigan yesterday,
dropping the first game, 4-3 in 14 in-
nings and then tumbling in the night-
cap, 6-5 in a darkness-shortened six in-
nings.
Bronco shortstop Ray Thoma beat
out an infield hit with one out in the top
of the 14th inning to win the opener, and
a five-run Western Michigan explosion
in, the fourth inning of the finale sealed
the Wolverines' fate again.
"I WAS VERY displeased with our of-
fense in the first game," said disap-
pointed Michigan manager Bud Mid-
daugh. "And we just plain ran out of
pitching in the second game.'"
The Broncos' winning rally in the 14th
began with a Tom Ackerman single

followed by a sacrifice bunt by Paul
Schneider, which sent Ackerman to
third. Thoma then bounced his game-
winning hit deep in the hole to short.
The run capped a Bronco comeback
necessitated when Michigan jumped on
Western starter Greg Brake for three
first-inning runs.
Brake experienced early wildness,
opening the game with nine straight
balls, issuing consecutive walks to Greg,
Schulte and Dave Stober. Paciorek then
lined an RBI single and designated hit-
ter Gerry Hool followed with another
single to load the bases. Freshman
third baseman Chris Sabb promptly
drilled a full-count pitch up the middle,
scoring Paciorek and Hool.
WESTERN chipped away though,
getting one back in the second on an
RBI singly by Tim Gourlay off starter
Dave Kopf, and tied things up in the fif-
th with a pair of runs.
Schneider started off the fifth by
blasting a double off the right field wall,
and then scored as Thoma bounced a
single up the middle off reliever Steve
Ontiveros. Mark Gerard lofted a
routine fly ball to left that was mishan-
dled by Dan Sygar and when Rob
Taraskavage singled, the bases were
loaded with Broncos. After a force-out

at the plate, Mark Quince walked to
force in a run and the game was knotted
at three apiece.
Ed Lynch (1-1) was the beneficiary of
Western's late-game heroics as he pit-
ched the last three innnings, giving up just
one hit and one walk. Rich Stoll (2-1)
worked the final four innings and ab-
sorbed the loss. \
IN THE nightcap, Michigan again
jumped out to the early lead, scoring
twice in the third inning. Designated
hitter Vic Ray led things off by drawing
a walk off Western starter Buster Sun-
de, and left fielder Fred Erdmann then
doubled him in. After a groundout
moved Erdmann around to third, shor-
tstop Dave Stober laid down a perfec-
tly-executed suicide squeeze bunt,
scoring Erdmann.
The Broncos, however, caught and
overtook the Wolverines in the next in-
ning, sending nine men to the plate and
five men home. After Gerard led off
with a double, it looked as though the
opportunity would be squandered as the
next two batters bounced out. But
Michigan hurler Dave Nuss, who had
relieved starter Gary Wayne in the
third inning, then walked Malcolm
McLean, served up an infield hit which
loaded the bases, and uncorked a wild
pitch that scored Gerard. An error by
Stober allowed the second run of the in-
ning to score and another walk re-filled
the bases. Right fielder Schneider then
delivered the key blow of the game,
slamming a base-clearing triple to the
warning track in left-center.
As Middaugh later admitted, it was a
lack of pitching depth which spelled

disaster for the Wolverines. "With all
the extra innings we've been playing
lately, we just didn't have the pitchers
to go to," said the skipper. "Western
had the better depth in pitching and it
showed."
THE WOLVERINES scored single
runs in the fourth, fifth and sixth, in-
nings with Ray, Tim Miller and Schulte
collecting the RBIs. The Broncos
squelched a last-gasp sixth inning
Michigan rally as, with darkness set-
ting in, Sabo grounded out with the
tying run on third.
Western's Dave Woodworth (4-0),
who took over in the fourth, picked up
the win while Nuss suffered his first
loss in only his second outing of the
season.
Middaugh was extremely impressed
with the Broncos, now 17-8. "Western's
the finest club we've played since we
faced Miami during our Florida trip,"
he said.
THE BRONCOS were paced by the
hitting of rightfielder Schneider, who
collected two singles, two doubles, a
triple, knocked in four runs and stole
one base in the twin bill.
Miller and Hool paced the Michigan
attack with three hits apiece. Paciorek,
the Wolverines' leading hitter,
managed just two hits in eight trips to
the plate.
Michigan, now 12-10 on the season,
opens the Big Ten portion of its
schedule this weekend, traveling to
Columbus to take on Ohio State in a pair
of doubleheaders.

KNOW HOW AND when to use a
variety of shots - be a smart player.
Have a strong desire to win and a
large amount of natural ability.
Combine all these qualities into one
person and you come up with. number
one singles player Marian Kremer.
SHE SAYS THAT she has loved the
sport from the moment she picked up a
racket, at age ten. She practiced and
played national tournaments, im-
proving until last year when she was
ranked tenth nationally.
Now she plays number one singles for
Michigan as a freshman. But higher
education required an adjustment. "All
of a sudden you have college on your
mind," says Kremer. "I did not worry
about school as much in high school."
Because of studies, she has had to cut
her practice time, but she feels that
practices at Michigan are more ef-
ficient than high school. She is also
quick to add that coach Oliver Owens
has helped her a great deal with her all-
around play, especially in doubles.
BUT KREMER LIKES it at Michigan
because, to her, attending college in-
volves more than playing tennis. "I
couldn't be happier at Michigan," she
says. "At a big school not everyone
knows I'm a tennis player. Not

everyone talks to me about tenn
Meeting different kinds of p
another important reason she l
nis so much at Michigan. "I
travel and meet people, that i

says Kremer.

is." Playing for a team is important to her
people is also. "I'm a team person," she says.
ikes ten- SHE SHOWS GREAT confidence in
love to this year's young team. "We are im-
s one of proving every week," she says. "Next
ments," year I think we'll win the Big Ten."
Individually at the -number one
singles position, Kremer has done ex-
ceptionally well. What is the secret of
her success? "I don't have the best
strokes. I'm not the quickest. I've been
playing tennis so long that I should be
able to make the shots I want to. You
have to be a smart tennis player, have a
variety of shots and know when to use
them," says Kremer. "There is never
an excuse to lose. Losing, to me, is so
bad. I'll go home and cry for hours."
But losing also makes her try harder.
u . She feels that all she can do is'play her
best, which results in a victory.
LOOKING DOWN THE road, Kremer
has set goals for herself. "I want to
reach my potential in college and see,
how things go, she says. "I would
really like to be an All-American this
year."
Kremer doesn't want to make a
career of tennis, though. She says that
one of the reasons she came to
Michigan is its academics. She adds,
"It's not just tennis for me."

clyding a two-run homer in the fifth in-
ning. Julie Zyjewski and Sanders both

cher in the second game also, throwing
a one-hitter. She upped her record to 3-2.
