Batsmen sac

By CHRISTOPHER GERBASI
Siena Heights tried its hand at acting
yesterday, performing Shakespeare's
"A Comedy of Errors," and before the
final curtain fell at Ray Fisher
Stadium, Michigan swept a
doubleheader from the Saints, 5-4, in
eight innings, and 9-3.
Siena committed three miscues in the
opener, including a crucial throwing
error that gave the Wolverines a tem-
porary lead, and, for an encore, booted
five balls in the second act.
"THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS when
your starters are hurt," said Siena's
director Rusty Frank. "Our shortstop
(Denny Kiel) was hurt and we had to
play people out of position."
The kindly Saints lived up to their
nickname, bestowing two victories to a
Michigan lineup that lacked timely hit-

N

things in general and I thought this was
a good time."
One Wolverine who has been popping
the ball is shortstop Barry Larkin.
Larkin's been on a tear lately and his 4-
for-7 performance in the twinbill
boosted his season average to .463.
The shortstop's biggest hit came in
the sixth inning of game one. Pinch-hit-
ter Kurt Zimmerman was hit by a pitch
and a passed ball by Siena catcher
John Brooks advanced both runners.
LARKIN THEN LOFTED a double
down the rightfield line to score Zim-
merman, and when rightfielder John
Clark's throw missed the cuttoff man,
both Froning and Larkin raced home.
The error put Michigan in front but
the lead was short-lived. The Saints
loaded the bases against lefty Dave
Karasinski, who had entered in the
fourth to relieve starter John Gretten-
berger.
Karasinski was then removed in
favor of righty Casey Close to face
Siena's second baseman Phil Woolsey,
who bats from the right side. The
strategy backfired, however, when
Woolsey lined Close's first pitch to cen-
ter field to score the two runners, who
were greeted by an exuberant Siena
bench.
CLOSE AVOIDED further trouble in
the seventh and eighth and also played
a role in the Wolverines' winning rally.
Larkin led off the eighth with a walk

rifice
and was forced at second by Ken
Hayward. Close then singled to set the
stage for Jeff Minick.
Minick had struck out twice against
starter Brett Steele, but this time he
was up against reliever Jeff Arnston.
With the outfield playing shallow,
Minick drilled a fastball over the cen-
terfielder's head to score Hayward with
the winning run.
Close, picked up the victory
to raise his record to 3-2.
Karasinski struck out five in 31/3 in-
nings, but walked four, and Gretten-
berger was tagged for four extra base
hits in the first three innings.
"Our pitching has been pretty iffy,"
said Middaugh. "Grettenberger
couldn't get his curveball over and they
were waiting on his fastball. I took him
out because I knew we wouldn't get
much off of him (Steele)."
The second win came much easier.
Crucified

Saints
Leading 3-1, Michigan broke the game
open in the fifth, scoring four times,
highlighted by two passed balls, an
error by shortstop Ken Groch and a
two-run triple to left center by Close.
Bill Shuta pitched five strong innings
to run his record to 4-0. Shuta allowed
only three hits and one run, which came
on a bases-loaded walk.
WOLVERINE NOTES: Pitcher Scott
Kamieniecki, who has been bothered by
back spasms, pinch ran yesterday and
should know today when he'll be able to
pitch next...Rich Bair did not catch

Buckeye
nabbed for

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Charges
of criminal mischief, a misdemeanor,
have been filed against Troy Taylor, an
Ohio State University basketball guard,
campus police at the Big Ten Conferen-
ce school said yesterday.
Ohio State police officer Deborah L.
Selby said she watched Taylor, 21, a
junior from Canton, Ohio, kick and
crack ;door glass in St. John Arena,
hours before the Buckeyes played
Michigan Feb. 25.

University police estimated the
damage to the cracked glass at $145.
Selby said Taylor then went to the
university's ice rink next door and ob-
tained a key to get into the basketball
arena.
Taylor has pleaded innocent. His at-
torney, John W. E. Bowen, has asked
for a non-jury trial. The case has been
assigned to Franklin County Municipal
Court Judge Steve B. Hayes. The
criminal mischief charge carries a
penalty of 60 days in jail or a $500fine.

Mobs of people rush through the gates
of the Michigan football stadium every
fall to see the Wolverines in action. But
where are those people at rugby mat-
ches, the sport that was invented before
football? Rugby, which is more
popular in the east, is still alive and
well in Michigan.
Michigan's rugby club, which, due to
its non-varsity status, does not get
much recognition, is worth taking a
look at. Last week Michigan beat
Palmer of Iowa, the number one team
in the Midwest, and this past weekend,
Michigan overwhelmed Indiana 25-0.
RUGBY, THE SPORT that resem-
bles a continuous option football game,
is a physical, action-filled event. Dave
Weber, captain and coach of the team,
feels that the sport is gaining more
popularity.
"The team has doubled in size in the
eight years that I have been here," said
Weber. "There are a lot more younger
people playing and more university
students."
The club is divided up into four dif-
ferent levels. The more advanced
players are in level "A." As the players
improve, they have the opportunity to
move up. Both graduate and un-
dergraduate students compete and
anyone who has a desire to play is
welcome to try out.

AFTER BEATING Indiana,
Michigan now has a record of 3-0. If the
Wolverines continue to play well, there
may be a chance to qualify for the
Nationals. Two years ago Michigan
came in second in that tournament
behind the University of California.
Individuals also can go to the
Nationals. Last year, Michigan's John
Hartman made the select twenty-two
man U.S. team.
"It was great," Hartman said. "We
stayed at a three-day camp in San
Francisco and then we went to
Australia, all for free. They even gave
us spending money during the day."
ALTHOUGH THE participants say
that Fugby is fun to play, it is also a very
physical sport. Weber feels it is not
unlike most contact sports.
"In rubgy, there are no more injuries
than in soccer, and less than in foot-
ball," the captain said. "So far we have
not had any serious injuries."
The team practices twice a week and
plays tournaments on the weekends.
Ken Hawks, a three year player, feels
that there is more to rubgy than just the
matches.
"We all have a good time playing the
games but it, is also a good time when
the games are over," he said. "When
we travel on the weekends to other

schools, we usually go out with the team
afterwards. It's all very social."
