CHICAGO (AP) - Detroit's Jack
Morris overcame a spell of wildness in
the fourth inning when he walked the
bases loaded with nobody out and went
on to pitch a no-hitter yesterday as the
Tigers defeated the Chicago White Sox
Morris walked six batters and struck
out eight en route to the first no-hitter of
the 1984 season and the first for a
Detroit pitcher since Jim Bunning did it
It was also the first no-hitter in
Comiskey Park since Chicago's Joe
Horlen no-hit Detroit on Sept. 10, 1967.
Except for some fine plays by right
fielder Kirk Gibson and first baseman
Dave Bergman, a late defensive
replacement, all the other defensive
plays by Morris' Tiger teammates were
Gibson raced back to make a fine
catch of a long drive by Rudy Law in*

get a gem since '58
In the seventh, Morris issued his fifth
walk of the game, to Greg Luzinski,
whom he also walked with two outs in
the ninth. After Ron Kittle flied out in
the seventh, pinch-hitter Tom Paciorek
hit a hard shot headed toward right
field that Bergman picked off with a
one-handed stab. Bergman also stole
another potential hit off pinch-hitter
Jerry Hairston when he grabbed his hot
shot behind first base and threw to
Morris covering first.
MORRIS, 2-0, a 20-game winner for
the Tigers last year, retired the first
nine batters on this crisp, sunny day,
then suddenly couldn't find the plate.
He went to a 2-0 count on Law, then was
charged with a third ball for going to his
mouth while on the mound. After going
to 3-2, Morris walked Law, then, ap-
parently upset, walked Carlton Fisk
and Harold Baines to load the bases.-
But he got Luzinski on a comebacker,,
threw home to force Law, and catcher
Lance Parrish completed the double
play to first. Morris struck out Ron Kit-
tle to end the inning.
In the ninth inning, Morris locked up
the no-hitter in fairly easy fashion, as
the White Sox crowd of 24,616 starting
standing and cheering for him at the
on the first pitch. Then Morris knocked
down a smash to the mound by Baine
and threw him out for the second out.
Morris then went to a 3-2 count on
Luzinski before walking the burly
HE FINISHED by striking out Kittle
with a breaking pitch, for his eighth
strikeout of the game. After the final
pitch, Morris' catcher, Parrish,
charged to the mound to hug the right-
hander. Morris was then engulfed by
his back-slapping teammates.
The Tigers made the most of their
four hits off Floyd Bannister, 0-1. Che
Lemon slugged a two-run homer in the
second inning on a 3-2 pitch. Parrish
had walked with nobody out and was on
base when Lemon slugged his homer in-
to the lower left field seats.
In the fifth, Lemon led off with a

son. Gibson then was sacrificed to third

It was a matter of execution in
Michigan's first Big Ten action of 1984.
In game one, the Wolverine sof-
tballers had it, and won, 4-1. In the
second game, however, they didn't, and
Indiana's Hoosiers swung the ax for a 6-
n 0 win.
''THE FIRST GAME was really
nice," said Michigan coach Bob
DeCarolis. His pitching was a success,
for one thing, but that wasn't all. "We
needed to move the ball on the ground

Defensively we made the plays. The

Michigan took the first game behind
the five-hit combined pitching of Julie
Clark and Linda Allen. Allen also
starred at the plate in her first action
against her old teammates since tran-
sferring to Michigan last season, poun-
ding out two doubles in the first game
and two singles in the second contest.
The Wolverines got on the board in
the first inning when first baseman
Mena Reyman tripled and then rode
home on Carol Patrick's bunt single.
IN THE SECOND, Allen doubled and
Lisa Panetta was hit by a pitch to start
it off. Missy Thomas' successful bunt
loaded the bases, but Allen was then cut
down at the plate attempting to score on
a passed ball. Panetta scored when Mary
Bitkowski reached on a fielder's choice
and Thomas tallied when Alicia Seegert
was safe on an error following another
bunt. Reyman sacrificed Bitkowski.
