Batsmen take two from Grand
} By JEFF RUSH
It's spring, it's sunny and it's
baseball season. What more could one
ask for? A no-hitter for openers, if
you're Wolverine baseball coach Bud
That's exactly what Middaugh
received in yesterday's home opener
against the Grand Valley Lakers.
Senior Scott Kamieniecki and fresh-
man Jim Abbott combined for a no-
hitter in the first game of the
(loubleheader as the Wolverines won,
-0. Michigan completed a near-
perfect afternoon with a 6-2 win in the
KAMIENIECKI and Abbott showed
none of the problems which plagued
hem on Michigan's nine game
southern trip. Although their respec-
tive earned run averages prior to the
game were 5.40 and 10.90, both were
Kamieniecki tossed the first three
innings of the no-hitter, striking out
four. The only blemishes on the
senior's effort were three harmless
kwalks. The free passes were spaced
over three separate innings; however,
and the runners could only sit on base
as Kamieniecki forced the Lakers to
hither strike out or ground out. Only
one ball left the infield during
Kamieniecki's stay on the mound.
Nothing escaped the infield when
Abbott took over. The hard-throwing
southpaw avoided any jitters or
mechanical problems that he may
have encountered down south. Abbott
faced a minimum number of batters
during his stint, striking out four
along the way.
* "IT'S HIS best performance that
he's had," said Middaugh. "He was on
the plate (whereas) he was a little
wild down south. We feel we've been
able to make some corrections and
he's responded pretty well in his
mechanics, and he started pitching
with a little confidence today.
"I think that is more of the Jim Ab-
bott that we're going to see."
Middaugh was equally pleased with
Kamieniecki's performance. The
senior missed much of the 1985 cam-
ign because of a sore shoulder, and
Middaugh remained cautiously op-
timistic about his pitcher's continued
"IT'S GOOD to get him out and
throw because he'll come back again
on Friday. He just needs to get some
innings. We didn't throw him that
much down south, so we were taking it
a little easier with him hoping he'll
continue to improve and be with us
down the stretch," said Middaugh.
The performances of Kamieniecki
and Abbot left Grand Valley coach
Andy Chopp thinking they were
anything but an injured senior and a
jittery freshman. The pair left Chopp
shaking his head and rollng his eyes.
"Jesus," he said, "Those are two
THE whitewashing in the first game
left Chopp searching for any method
to create offense in the second game.
"We made an adjustment in bet-
ween games of concentrating on
getting the barrel of the bat out in
front," said the Lakers' coach. "I was
trying to get in their minds the at-
titude of trying to pull the ball, so that
made them quicken up at the plate."
The Lakers responded with several
hard-hit balls early in the game. By.
the second inning they had slapped
the ball out of the infield three times
and had also come up with a hit. Both
numbers exceeded those of the first
game. By the third, Grand Valley had
scored a run, and things were all tied
up at Ray Fisher Stadium.
THEN THE Wolverines offense
went to work. Billy St. Peter nailed a
single through the left-side hole. Steve
Finken then poked a single under the
glove of Lakers' second baseman Tom
Regan, and center fielder Scott Near-
pass bobbled the ball, allowing St.
Peter to advance to third.
Chris Gust singled home St. Peter,
and a ground-out by Kurt Zimmer-
man left runners on second and third.
Finken scored on Ken Good's wild pit-
ch, and after Casey Close walked, Hal
Morris nailed a first-pitch single to
drive in Gust.
The three runs on four singles was
typical of the day's scoring. The
Wolverines biggest blast of the day
was a two-run double, and the Lakers
could manage nothing more than a
single. A stiff wind blowing from cen-
ter to right posed as much of a
problem to the batters as any pitcher.
"It's tough to swing the bat this
time of year," said Middaugh. "I
thought they (the hitters) were
aggressive, but not near as
aggressive as they would be, I think ,
if the temperature were another twen-
ty degrees warmer."
Scott Kamieniecki and Jim Abbott
had no complaints about any
problems the hitters may have en-

Western Michigan battled to a tight
5-4 victory over the women's tennis
Although coach Bitsy Ritt was
-disappointed with the loss, she was
pleased with her team's performance.
"The match could easily have gone
either way," Ritt said, as each of
Michigan's individual losses came af-
ter three sets.
THE disappointment began early
for the Wolverines when the first
three singles players . succumbed to
Western. Paula Reichert was
defeated by Maria Whitfield 6-3, 5-7, 6-
7 (4-7), at first singles. Tina Basle lost to
Jan Weigand in the second singles
match, 2-6, 6-4, 4-6, and at third
*ingles Leslie Mackey was defeated
by Sonya Garshnek, 2-6, 6-4, 0-6.
Hope was restored to the
Wolverines starting with number four
4ingles as they recorded three
straight victories. Tricia Horn and
Erin Ashare at fourth and sixth
singles, respectively, each played
"good tennis" in their wins, according
to Ritt. Horn defeated Sheri Birndorf,
6-2, 7-6, (8-6), while Ashare easily
handled Stephanie Schjulte, 6-1, 6-0.
At number five singles Monica Bor-
cherts took a difficult win from Sherry
Collins, 5-7, 6-4, 7-6, (7-5). "Monica
played extremely well under pressure
in her 7-6 third set," commented Ritt,
"she did a great job."
Ritt was not so pleased with the per-
formance of her doubles teams.
Reichert and Basle lost to Whitfield
and Garshnek, 3-6, 6-4, 3-6, and the
Mackey-Lynne Wise combination lost
0-6, 6-4, 2-6, at second doubles. Horn
and Ashare pulled out a victory,
defeating Weigand and Schulte, 7-5, 7-
"Our doubles teams have been a
problem for us," said Ritt, "but we
will stay optimistic and hope to get
more breaks in the future."
