It took the Wolverine football team nearly two mon-
ths to get in seven games, the basketball team
clocked in a little quicker at just under a month with
the Icers skating close behind. None of those teams,
however, can touch the sprinter of the big four sports,
the Michigan baseball team.
After a four game series this past weekend, the
Wolverines had only yesterday to rest up before
opening up a quick three game stint at Fisher
Stadium beginning today with single contest against
Wayne State University and ending with a
doubleheader Wednesday against Sienna Heights.
THE THREE games lead Michigan into its con-
ference opener this weekend against Indiana in
Bloomington. The upcoming series is proving to be a
major factor in Michigan coach Bud Middaugh's
strategy for today's games.
"We'll go out there and try to beat them," said
Middaugh, "but I'm going to try and get some
players in who haven't gotten that much playing
time thus far. We're still not set as a team."'
Neither Wayne State nor Siena College come into

Ann Arbor with much to boast about. WSU's Tartars
have compiled a 6-3 record playing out of the Great
Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Association, and
Siena's Saints have found themselves with little
divine inspiration, compiling only five wins against
eight losses. Siena College does have one pitcher on
their staff, Kris Hogensen (3-0), who reportedly has
been scouted by a few pro teams.

looking for a fourth starter for this weekend," said
Middaugh. "I think we're going to have Disher throw
against Wayne State. He hasn't pitched since the
spring trip and I'd like to see what he can do.
"I'm going to hold our better pitchers so they can
throw this weekend. I might get them in for an inning
or two just to keep them sharp," Middaugh ex-
Middaugh however may be forced to call in his aces
for more than just an inning. "In the past we've been
able to do pretty well against Wayne State . . . but
we've had our problems . . . Usually they come out
ready to play and we face their best pitching."
Besides another three W's in the won-loss columns,
Middaugh also hopes the team can find a little more
balance during the three home games. "I'm still
looking for people who can play solid defensively and
still give us some offensive punch. Our hitting still
isn't that strong," he said.
Michigan's ability to experiment in the next three
games against potentially dangerous guinea pigs in
WSU and Siena Heights will show how well balanced
a team the Wolvernes will bring into their drive for a
repeat performance as Big Ten Champions.


Bud Middaugh

THUS MIDDAUGH has room to try out new
players, but even he admits that he's not sure how
much. "I don't have any information on Siena, so I
don't really know what they'll be like," he said.
One problem area Middaugh hopes to work out
against WSU and Siena is the pitching staff. "We're

gave up one more run in the third.
Both Michigan's run came in the fifth
as Casey Close was hit by a pitch, Jeff

laid down a perfect bunt to move the
runners over. Close scored when Dan

Minick then came home on a wild pitch
by Eastern's Bill Matthews.
Tom Michno then took the mound for
the Hurons and shut the Wolverines
down for the rest of the game.
SLOPPY WAS the name of the game
in the second contest, as both teams ran
into pitching problems early before
Wolverine Ken Hayward and Huron
Todd Haylett took to the mound in the
third inning and pitched decent games.
Hayward, who picked up his third win
of the season against one loss, got into
slight trouble in the sixth when he
allowed a pair of runs on three singles
and an error by shortstop Barry Larkin.
Wolverine catcher Eric Sanders
clubbed a single with one out in the bot-
tom of the seventh to bring Chris Gust
home from third with the deciding run.
Gust had walked, was balked to second
by Haylett and went to third on
Minick's groundout. Sander's single
was the first hit Haylett had given up
since entering the game.
A grand-slam home run by Eastern's
Ron Goble highlighted a wild first two
innings which saw the lead see-saw
back and forth before Michigan came
out on top, 7-6.

One streak ended and one streak con-
tinued Sunday in Bloomington for the
'women's tennis team. Unfortunately,
the streak that ended belonged to the
Wolverines. Indiana defeated Michigan
6-2, to end the Wolverines' eight-game,
one-month winning string. It was the
second Hoosier win over Michigan this
The streak that continued belonged to
first singles player Mary Mactaggart,
who scored a key 6-4, 5-7, 7-6 victory
over Tracy Hoffman. The win, Mac-
taggart's eighth in a row, put the senior
in contention for a second NCAA singles
bid to add to the one she received her
sophomore year.
MACTAGGART'S match ended with
her winning the tiebreaker, 12-10. "I
was dying," Mactaggart said. "It (the
match) was so long. Every point had 50
shots go over the net."
Mactaggart, now 16-6 overall and 5-0
in the Big Ten, defeated Hoffman

earlier'this season when the teams met
in Ann Arbor.
The only other Michigan win
belonged to Paula Reichert at second
singles. She downed Wendy Allen 6-2, 6-
3. The win raised Reichert's record to
13-9 overall and 4-1 in the Big Ten.
MICHIGAN failed to win a single set
after the first two singles positions.
Juliet Naft, at third singles, and Karen
Milczarski, at fourth, fell 6-3, 6-4, and 7-
6, 6-3 respectively. The two both won in
the last match against the Hoosiers.
Despite the loss, which concluded a
grueling seven-match road trip, head
coach Ollie Owens was happy. "We.
played pretty well - about as well as
we could," he said. "It was a big, big
win for Mary for her bid to the NCAA's.
Paula is really on a roll."
The Wolverines are now 10-7 overall
and 3-2 in the Big Ten. They have the
week off until Saturday when Ohio State
comes to town for a 3 p.m. match.

Lacy will head to Chiefs in '84

Kansas City Chiefs announced yester-
day the signing of Ken Lacy, the third-
leading rusher in the United States
Football League in 1983.
Terms of the contract were not
disclosed but the Chiefs said in a
prepared statement that Lacy, who is in
his second year with the Michigan Pan-

thers, had signed a series of one year
contracts covering three years starting
with the 1984 National Football League
LACY, a former University of Tulsa
running back, had agreed to the pact in
Kansas City and then returned to

players. As a rookie he rushed'for 1,180
yards on 232 carries and six touch-
downs. Lacy finished behind Herschel
Walker and Kevin Bryant in rushing.
Lacy also caught 40 passes for 433

Perez walks
ATLANTA (AP) - A tearful Pascual
Perez was preparing to leave the
Dominican Republic yesterday after a6
three-month stay in prison, but when
the ace right-handed pitcher would be
able to rejoin the Atlanta Braves was
Perez was released from Fort San
Luis prison in Santiago, where he had
been held since Jan. 9 following his
arrest on drug charges.
ALTHOUGH he originally was
charged with felony trafficking of
drugs, Perez was convicted March 23 of
a reduced charge of cocaine possession,
the equivalent of a misdemeanor.
"I'm all choked up," the 26-year-old
Perez said as he left the prison yester-
day when prosecutors decided not to
appeal the case.
"I knew I wouldn't be let down, and I
won't let down the people who supporO
ted me," the tearful Perez said as he
was joined by his wife and several
family members.
Perez's return to the Braves
however, remained in doubt. First,
baseball Commissioner Bowie Kuhn
said he wanted to meet with Perez when
the pitcher returns to the United States.
