An error by Bronco second baseman Joe Gherna
the fifth inning allowed Tony Evans to score, ruining
Sunde's near-perfect outing and giving Michigan a 1-0
victory over Western in the second game of a
THE WIN gave the Wolverines a sweep as they took
the first game from the Broncos, 2-1, in eight innings.
Sunde got himself into trouble in the fifth when he
walked-Evans to lead off the inning. The Michigan
shortstop advanced to second on a bunt by catcher
Rich Bair and then scored whennGreg Schulte's two-
out grounder skipped through the legs of Gherna.
Other than the fifth, the Wolverines only threatened
Sunde once. In the third inning, Bair and Chuck
Stober both drew bases on balls, but Chris Sabo pop-
ped a foul to Bronco first baseman Mark Gerard to
end the inning harmlessly.
WESTERN, meanwhile, threatened in the first,
third and fifth innings. The Broncos first two batters
of the game reached base as Osbe Hoskins was safe on
an error and Ray Thoma singled, but Wolverine star-
ter Dave Kopf got out of the jam by retiring the next
two batters on flyouts and striking out All-American
outfielder Paul Schneider.
In the third, Hoskins led of with a double to left and
moved to third on a sacrifice by Thoma, but was
unable to score as Gerard popped out and Steve
Chumas was gunned-down by Bair while attempting
to steal second.
Jeff Hayward took over for Kopf'in the fifth but pit-
ched to only three batters. He walked Gherna and,
retired Joe Markert on a sacrifice bunt, but then
misplayed Hoskins bunt into a single to put runners
on first and third.
MICHIGAN coach Bud Middaugh then pulled the
freshman in favor of senior Tim Karazim, who got
Thoma to ground into a double-play to end the inning.
The twin-killing resulted from umpire Dick Zivic's
ruling that Hoskins interfered with Wolverine second
baseman Jeff Jacobson on the play, but it appeared
that Jacobson's throw beat Thoma to first, anyway.
Karazim retired the Broncos in order in the sixth
and, after a lead-off walk to Malcolm McLean in the
seventh, sent the Broncos back to Kalamazoo on a
popout and two groundouts. Karazim appeared to tire
in the seventh but the righthander convinced Mid-
daugh to leave him in the game. "I just told him I
want this,' "s?d Karazim.
The relief specialist now has pitched 19 consecutive
scoreless innings and is undefeated with four vic-
tories. How long will the shutout streak last?
"AS LONG AS the defense holds }out," said
Karazim.-"I thrive on doubleplays."
In the first game, Michigan managed only one run
off Western starter Jeff Kaiser but stayed in the
game thanks to the pitching of Bill Shuta and Steve
Ontiveros. Although Shuta struggled through his four
innings of work, he allowed only one run in the fourth
Ontiveros (2-1) loaded the bases with one out in the
fifth, but fanned the next two batters and retired the
final 11in order to earn the victory.
MICHIGAN WON the game in the eighth when
Schulte led off the inning with a triple to center and
scored when Jim Paciorek's fly ball dropped in for a
single just inside the right field foul line.
Paciorek batted only after Bronco coach Fred
Decker intentionally walked Chuck Stober and Chris
Sabo to fill the bases and set up a possible doubleplay.
"Under the circumstances, that's what they had to
do," said Paciorek. "They needed a double play."
But the senior's base hit, only the Wolverines' third,
foiled the strategy. Western's Schneider (1-2) suf-
fered the loss.
While. not pleased with his team's bat work, Mid-
daugh gave credit to the Bronco mound corps. "Ob-
viously, we saw good pitching today," he said, adding
"I feel we're'very fortunate to win both games. To
have good seasons, you've got to win ball games like
Michigan, winner of 15 straight games, now carries
an 18-3 record. Western dropped to 10-10.

Softballers take two
Miller High Life

Despite a scare in the second game,
the Michigan softball team continued
its winning ways yesterday, taking
a doubleheader from Wayne State, 8-1,
and 3-2. The Wolverines raised their
record to 12-3 on the year as they readied
themselves for this weekend's Big Ten
tournament which they will host.
After succumbing rather passively in
the first game the Tartars put up a sur-
prisingly strong fight in the nightcap,
taking a 2-0 lead into the bottom of the
fifth behind the strong pitching of
Rocky Szczesniak. Michigan had run-
ners on base in every inning but could
not score until first baseman Mena
Reyman led off the fifth with a home
run, cutting the lead in half.
WOLVERINE coach Bob DeCarolis
considered Reyman's four-bagger to be
the turning point of the contest. "We
needed something to get us on the
board," 'commented DeCarolis, "We
needed something to get us on the
The Wolverines tied it up in the sixth
inning as Diane Hatch came up with a
two-out single to right scoring KaREN
Pollard from second. Meanwhile, ;
starting pitcher Julie Galletti was
mowing down Wayne State over the last
two innings. Galletti 'pitched well F
throughout surrendering only five hits
while walking one.
The game-winning rally occured in
the bottom of the seventh. Jody Hum-
phries led off the stanza with a walk and
pinch-runner Karen Crawfis advanced
to second on a wild pitch. Sue Burk"
sacrificed the runner to third and Deb- '
bie Haines' base hit to center gave the
Wolverines the victory.,
WHILE HE was concerned about his
squad in the second game,.DeCarolis
felt that the come-from-behind vic-
tory would help the team as they enter a"'
difficult part of their schedule. "We"
needed a tough game to come into the
tournament with. We've been having a
lot of blowouts lately."
In the opener, Jan Boyd tossed a five-
bitter, allowing but one unearned tally
in the last inning. Michigan scored four
runs in the second and fifth innings as
key hits were again provided by
Reyman and Hatch, both of whorl had
two- run doubles.
DeCarolis was pleased with his
team's play in all facets of the game
and was confident of their chances in
"If our pitchers don't walk people and.
our defense holds, we'll win games," he.
added. "It (the double victory) will
give us impetus."
