Batsmen drown Lakers
By GARY EFFMAN
The Michigan baseball team just
rewrote the theory that you have to hit
the ball to win baseball games. With
only a single hit Michigan managed to
destroy the Grand Valley State Lakers
6-1 in the first game of yesterday's
doubleheader. A selective seven hits in
the second game, including Casey
Close's game-winning double in the
seventh, provided the Wolverines with
four runs, just enough for them to
squeeze by the Lakers in a 4-3 victory.
Michigan relied on the control
problems of Lakers starter Jeff Agar in
the second inning of the opener for the
margin of victory. Agar walked Jeff
Minick and Kurt Zimmerman before
freshman Matt Siuda put down a per-
fect bunt to advance them into scoring
The Lakers kept third baseman Greg
Suhajda back to hold Minick close on
third. Michigan coach Bud Middaugh
responded with a suicide squeeze that
C.J. Beshke placed with deadly ac-
curacy, scoring Minick. A hustling
Zimmerman came around from second
when Laker catcher Mike Cupples tried
to throw Beshke out at first, sliding un-
der the return throw from first.
Michigan starter Close threatened to
return the favor in the top of the third.
After allowing a lead-off single to first
baseman Jeff Reid, Close walked Dave
Ryan. A double steal and a walk loaded
the bases. Close escaped trouble with a
dazzling play that nearly resulted in a
Second baseman Guy Dunithan hit a
squibber back to close, who fired home
to catcher Rich Bair for one out. Bair
threw to first where Dunithan just beat
it out. Wolverine first baseman alertly
threw back to Bair to nail Ryan, who
tried to score from second.
'M' survives silent
bats; sweeps opener
Michigan won the game in the seven-"
th with a walk to Bair, followed by a
long blast by Casey Close that sent Bair
home with the winning run.
"He (the umpire) said the runner
beat the throw, but I don't know," said
Close got the final batter to pop out to
thwart Grand Valley's best scoring
threat. Grand Valley managed to pick
up a run in the fourth but it was the last
time that it got a runner past first.
Michigan first base hit was a big fif-
th-inning double by Ken Hayward
which cleared the bases and gave the
Wolverines three insurance runs and a
"He (Agar) was throwing a knuckle-
curve all game," said Hayward.
"C.J. (Beshke) was on second base
and he caught the signal, he told me to
hold back and I just waited and drove it
into right-center." Hayward touched
home to finish the scoring.
Gary Wayne and Jeff Wood blanked
the Lakers after Close was taken out in
the fifth to save the win.
Despite the victory coach Middaugh
was not pleased.
"I feel fortunate that we won, but I
don't like the way the team perfor-
med," said the fifth year coach. "We're
still having problems with consistency
on the mound, we didn't play that well
defensively, and our offensive thrust
was literally nothing."
The second win, like the first,
featured erratic pitching performances
and inconsistent hitting.
The Lakers held a 3-1 lead until the
bottom of the sixth inning. Michigan
struck back with its only concerted of-
fensive attack when Casey Close
opened up with a single and advanced
to second on a wild pitch. One out later
Siuda drove Close home with a single.
Laker coach Doug Wabeke replaced
his starting pitcher Ray Ocharzak with
his ace reliever Randy Spangler. Mid-
daugh countered with pinch-hitter Eric
Sanders. Sanders proved the better,
sending a long double to center, scoring
Siuda and knotting the score.

Softballers to compete in Texas
By BARB McQUADE
While most students are still waiting for smells of
spring, the Michigan softball team will be sniffing the
yellow rose of Texas. The Wolverines head into the
Lone Star State today where they will take on Texas
A&M and Baylor before competing in a nine-team
tournament this weekend.
"We're looking to pick up' as many wins as
possible," said Michigan head coach Bob DeCarolis.
"We're as ready as were going to be. You can only
practice for so long. We're ready to go out and win
AFTER A February trip to California, Michigan
boasts a 7-3 record. The senior trio of Missy Thomas,
Jody Humphries, and Carol Patrick form a solid
nucleus in the outfield. Thomas sports a .370 batting
average along with four stolen bases in five attempts.
Humphries is hitting a healthy .318. Patrick led last
year's squad with 20 RBIs and a school-record 49 hits.
A good recruiting year gives DeCarolis a corps of
talented freshmen. Catcher/infielder Alicia Seegert
leads the team with a .406 batting average, including
two doubles, two triples, and a home run. Pitchers
Julie Clark and Vicki Morrow have combined for a 4-1
mark, and Clark's miniscule 0.47 earned run average
has given her coach plenty to smile about.
But DeCarolis isn't ready to get to excited about the
success of his young players yet. "They're just
freshmen, they've got a long way to go," said the
fourth-year coach. "They don't know what it takes
yet but that will come with experience.
"THEY HAVE been playing well, though. They're
going to be a big part of our program."
While deep in the heart' of Texas, the Wolverines
will be looking to hone their tools to perfection before
Indiana comes to town to open the Big Ten season.
Always a competitive conference, the Big Ten this
season should be no different. DeCarolis knows the
league race should be extremely tough.
"It's going to be a dog fight," said the Wolverine
mentor. "I think this is the best talent we've ever
had, but everybody else is better, too.
"The talent is there. It's just a matter of what they
do with it."
