Sabo powers batsmen by

Tartars, 6-5

By LARRY FREED
Missed opportunities. They often spell the demise of many
a ball club. Such was the case yesterday for the Wayne State
Tartars as they squandered numerous scoring chances in
their 6-5 loss to the Michigan Wolverines at Fisher Stadium.
The Wolverines, however, capitalized on their few chances
thanks largely to freshman third baseman Chris Sabo. Sabo
was perfect from the plate (four-for-four) driving in three
runs, and also scoring three times. His big blow came in the
second inning with the Wolverines trailing 2-0. That is when
Sabo sent a fastball from losing pitcher John Gerbe 400 feet
over the center field fence for a two-run homer.
"CHRIS HAD A SUPER day today," said Michigan coach
Bud Middaugh. "He heeps improving with every ball game."
Sabo also played a key in Michigan's third inning barrage,
when the Wolverines tallied three on consecutive hits by
Gerry Hool, Sabo and Rich Bair.
After a shaky start, winning pitcher Dave Kopf (1-1) set-
tled down to retire the Tartars for six scoreless innings,
despite having to constantly pitch himself out of trouble.
During his seven-inning stint, Kopf stranded 14 Tartar
baserunners.

"DAVE STRUGGLED A LITTLE bit today," commented
Middaugh. "But he showed he is capable of pitching out of
trouble."
Whereas the Tartars were successful at getting on base,
the Wolverines went down peacefully during the middle in-
nings. "We have power potential, but we did not execute well
this afternoon," Middaugh said.
The Wolverines finally chased Gerbe out of the game withe
an eighth-inning rally. In that frame, Sabo started with a
single and was moved to third on Chuck Froning's double.
Sabo then scored on a long sacrifice fly by Fred Erdmann.
THE RUN PROVED DECISIVE when Wayne State's Ran-
dy Garcia connected for a three-run blast off of relief pitcher
Rich Stoll.
However, Stoll regained his composure and retired the last
two batters to preserve the Wolverine victory. The win
pushed Michigan's record to 16-11.
The Wolverines return to action today with a doubleheader
at Western Michigan. Then they return home this weekend
and resume the Big Ten season with a pair of weekend twin-
bills against Indiana.

SPORTS OF THE DAILY:
Women netters breeze past Chips

By TOM SHAHEEN
No game plan was required - it was
the perfect day to experiment with a
variety of spins, shots and paces.
When yesterday's women's tennis
match at the Track and Tennis building
was over, nobody was surprised at the
result - Michigan 9, Central Michigan
0.
The entire roster of CMU singles
players could muster only five games
between them in six matches. The vic-
tory upped Michigan's season record to
12-1, while the Chippewas remained
winless at 0-3.
TOP SINGLES PLAYER Marian
Kremer continued her fine play,

disposing of CMU's Karen Milczarski,
6-1, 6-0. Mary Mactaggart, Sue Weber,
Bobbie Risdon and Maryanne Hodges
crushed their opponents in like manner.
But the most significant victory of the
afternoon came at No. 6 singles. Junior
walk-on Betsy Shapiro, playing in her
first singles match ever for Michigan,
came up with a 6-0, 6-1 victory over
Chippewa netter Mary Jo Johnson.
"I was a little nervous," said a
jubilant Shapiro. "That went away
during warm-up, though. I feel like I've
really improved a lot this year, and we
all (Michigan's netters) think we can
win the Big Ten."
THAT LAST statement will be no

small task however, as coach Oliver
Owens' team faces its biggest test of the
season this weekend. Big Ten favorite
Indiana, powerful Northwestern and
Purdue join Michigan in a
quadrangular meet at West Lafayette,
Ind.
Earlier this year, Michigan was
drubbed by the Hoosiers, 8-1.
"But that was in the fall," said
Owens. "We're a lot more confident
now. Our freshmen have made the
jump to playing under the pressure of
college tennis. And this match will be
on a neutral court."
So while the Wolverines gained some
confidence with yesterday's win over
CMU, they will need a superior perfor-
mance at alb positions in addition to that
confidence if they expect to make win-
ning the Big Ten title a reality.
Oliver Owens insists that the
Wolverines' tennis arsenal will be
ready.
Women thinclads fourth
While some members of the women's
track team traveled to Knoxville, Tenn.
last weekend for the Dogwood Relays,
the remainder of the team went to
the Bowling Green State Invitational in
Kentucky, where they finished fourth
out of 14 teams.
The Dogwoods, always a very com-
petitive meet, saw a number of out-
standing performances turned in by
Wolverines. Debbie Williams flung the
javelin 157'11%" to capture that event
and qualify for the AIAW nationals.
Teammates Penny Neer and Melanie
Weaver also qualified for the nationals
in their events, Neer taking third place
in the discus with a throw of 162'11/4"
(a personal best), and Weaver placing
sixth in the 3,000 meters with a time of

9:32, also a personal best.
OTHER SCORERS included Joanna
Bullard, with a third place in the high
jump (5'6"), and Lori Thornton in the
long jump (19'5"). Sue Frederick, one
of the fastest runners entered in the 800
meters, stumbled over a fallen runner
at the end of the first lap of the race and
was unable to finish. "It was a sad
thing," noted coach Red Simmons.
"She would have taken second place in
that race on the basis of her best time."
The team travels to the Central
Michigan Invitational at Mt. Pleasant
on Saturday.
