Batsmen blast Ball

State twice

Special to the Daily
MUNCIE, Indiana - Bud Middaugh
joined an elite group of coaches yester-
day when his team swept a
doubleheader from Ball State by scores
of 13-9 and 8-6. The Michigan head
coach became the 15th active coach in
Division I college baseball to top the 600
win plateau.
The Wolverines took four games from
Ball State over the weekend raising
their record to 31-6. Ball State, mean-
while dropped to 18-15. Middaugh has

never won less than 30 games in a season
in six years as the Wolverines field
SIX HOME runs paced Michigan's at-
tack in the first game. First baseman
Ken Hayward and second baseman C.S.
Beshke both rapped two home runs
while catcher Randy Wolfe and left
fielder Mike Watters each hit solo
Beshke, a senior, has developed into a
power hitter over the last 12 days. In a
13 game period, the Birmingham native

has belted six round trippers. The only
other home run Beshke has hit in a
Michigan uniform was in his first at bat
as a freshman.
Freshman Jim Agemy went the
distance scattering 12 hits to win his fif-
th game of the year. The righthander
has yet to lose as a Wolverine.
OUTFIELDER Dan Disher and cat-
cher Eric Sanders paced Michigan's 12-
hit attack in game two. Disher had a
double, two singles, one RBI, scored
two runs, and stole a base. Sanders had

a triple, two singles, a sacrifice, two
.RBI's, and scored one run.
Sophomore Dave Karasinkski picked
up the win going 5% innings. The lef-
thander struck out eight, walked two,
and gave up five hits. Casey Close
finished the game getting his first save
of the season.
The Wolverines will be in Cleveland
Tuesday for a doubleheader against
Cleveland State. It will be Michigan's
eighth straight doubleheader on the
road. The team will finally come home
Wednesday to meet Sienna Heights.

The letter of the day is J, and the Michigan men's
tennis team served up just what the doctor ordered
by defeating Indiana, 6-3 at the Liberty Tennis and
Fitness club, behind four players, all whose first
name begin with the letter J.
Yesterday's victory over the Hoosiers moved the
Wolverines into first place in the conference stan-
dings with a 6-2 mark and knocked Indiana into
second. And although the Big Ten champion is not
decided until the conference meet May 10-12,
Wolverine coach Brian Eisner admits that this was
an important win.
"THE MATCH went as I expected, and we beat an
excellent team," said Eisner. "I was very pleased
with our performance. We were competitive in
every match and we played solid."
The three match margin of victory was a result of
Michigan's sweep of the doubles matches, all in
straight sets.
At first doubles, junior captain Jim Sharton teamed
with Ed Filer in defeating the Hoosiers' Joe Christoff

and Brad Pontov, 6-2, 6-3. Filer, who did not look
anything like the same guy who lost to Pontov in two
sets only an hour earlier, played exceptionally well
with Sharton who was simply awesome.
EISNER SAID of Sharton, who at first singles
breezed past Christoff, 6-2, 6-0, "He's Mr. Solid. Day in
and day out he does the job. He's been our most con-
sistant player at the most difficult position."
Also playing well was fourth singles player John
Royer. Royer toyed with opponent Jeff Cohen before
finishing him off, 6-3, 7-6. The sophomore from
Columbus, Ohio was just glad to notch another victory.
"I served real well but had a hard time returning. I
hit the shots I had to hit," he said.
ROYER THEN teamed with Jon Morris in second
doubles action. Morris, who like Filer lost his singles
match, played well with Royer in disposing of In-
diana's Kim Anderson and Sven Salumaa. It was a
quick trip to the showers for the Hoosier duo, as the 6-
2, 6-2 score indicates.
Eisner thinks Royer could be something special:
"He's a dynamic player and he has an exquisite
game. He is capable of doing a lot of things on the

court, now all he has to do is go out and do them."
THE ONLY matches of the afternoon that were
stretched out to three sets occured at fifth and sixth
At the number five position, Wolverine John Solik
defeated Kim Anderson, 6-3, 4-6, 6-0 in a match that
was not as close as one might think. Solik, subbing for
a struggling Brad Koontz seemed to let up a little in
the second set but came back strong in the third.
"Solik did a .great job," said Eisner. "Koontz has
not been performing as well as we'd like him to, so we
gave John a shot and he was super."
The only low points as far as the Wolverines are
concerned were the near collapse of sixth singles
player Franz Geiger and an apparent injury to Filer.
Geiger walked past Gregg Anderson, 6-0, in the fir-
st set but fell apart and dropped the next two, 4-6, 2-6.
Filer, meanwhile hurt his elbow right before the
end of his doubles match. The sophomore transfer
from South Carolina is questionable for today's mat-
ch against Ohio State, however the injury did not ap-
pear serious.

Sue Schroeder broke a four-year-
old record in the 5000-meter run
yesterday, highlighting the women's
track team's performance in the
Red Simmons Invitational at Ferry
Schroeder's time of 16:29.33 won
the race by 71 seconds, and shat-
tered the school mark set by Boston
Marathon champion Lisa Larson in
1981. It also qualified her for the
NCAA national meet.
"IT WAS A total surprise to us,"
said coach James Henry. "It was
hot, humid and windy. Susie's a very
small kid. We thought the wind
would blow her all over the place,
but it still didn't hold her back."
Junior Angie Hafner also qualified
for nationals, winning the high
jump with a season-best leap of 5'
111". Dawn McGinnis was second
with 5'10".
"Normally, she's (Hafner) per-
forming under a lot of pressure," said
Henry. "There wasn't a large field
of competitors and she knew she
could win the meet with a 5'7", or
lose to a teammate if anyone. Before
she knew it, she was jumping at a
qualifying standard."
Michigan's other winners were in
the mile relay (Cathy Schmidt,

Dedra Bradley, Laurette Mallard,
Joyce Wilson), the triple jump
(Chris Tuerk - 33' 41/") and the 400
meters (Bradley -58.15 seconds).
"It was a nice, low-key meet for
us. It gave the girls a chance to per-
form under no pressure. History has
shown that they run best when the
pressure isn't on, so we want to keep
them as relaxed as possible," said

Special to the Daily
LANSING - The men's track team
split its squad yesterday between
the Kansas Relays in Lawrence,
Kansas and the Michigan State In-
vitational in East Lansing and got
some good results in the process.
Todd Steverson qualified for
nationals in winning the 400-meter
dash in 46.03 seconds. He was closely
followed by freshman teammate
Omar Davidson in 46.48 for second
place at the Kansas Relays.
In Lansing, Dave Hall paced the
team with a first-place toss of 161
feet in the discus event. Scott
Crawford won the long jump in 23' 1"
and Chris Fitzpatrick finished third
in the 400 meter hurdles with a
season-low time of 53.5 seconds.

Tigers roar back,

Special to the Daily
DETROIT - It was Tiger day
yesterday and the beloved World
Champions proved once again the old
adage, "It ain't over till it's over," still
holds true.
Detroit played come from behind ball
throughout the entire game giving
Tiger fans nothing to really cheer about
through the first eight innings except
for the pre-game barbershop rendition
of the national anthem performed by
none other than the Osmond brothers.
KANSAS CITY sluggers banged
away without mercy at Detroit starter
Walt Terrell. First baseman Steve
Balboni led the Royal attack with three
hits while Jim Sundberg, Darryl Motley
and Willie Wilson contributed with two
hits a piece.
For a while it appeared as if Kansas
City had the game in the bag. By the
seventh inning Royals starter Mark
Gubicza had retired 21 batters, giving
up only four hits in the process. The
Kansas City pitcher had retired 13 in a
row in fact before Darrell Evans began

ds in ninth
the Tiger comeback by tagging him for
a solo home run into the upper deck
in right in the bottom of the seventh.
Leading 3-1, in the eighth, Royals
manager Dick Howser sent in reliever
Dan Quisenberry who led the American
League last year with 44 saves. The
submarine throwing righthander
faltered though as Detroit pounded
him hard in the last two innings. In the
bottom of the eighth, third baseman
Chris Pittaro began a rally by cracking
an infield single. Then with two outs,
shortstop Alan Trammell sent Pittaro
to third with another single to center,
and rightfielder Kirk Gibson sent him
home with an RBI single to right.
It was in the ninth, though, that the
Tigers made Saturday's price of ad-
mission worth every penny. Utilizing
consistent hitting, Detroit hitters John-
ny Grubb and Evans, each banged out
singles. Chet Lemon then singled in
Grubb and Pittaro drew a walk to load
the bases, setting the stage for the
game-winning hit which came from the
bat of Lou Whitaker.
