Batsmen take twinbill from Titans
By ADAM OCHLIS
There wasn't a game-winning home
run, a no-hitter, nor any professional
scouts in the stands, but that didn't
bother the Wolverine baseball team.
In making the routine plays look easy
and the harder plays look routine,
Michigan swept a pair of games from
the University of Detroit, 6-3 and 3-2,
Apparently, the Titans have not
learned the routine as they committed
eight errors to Michigan's one. Only a
handful of spectators saw the ninth-
ranked Wolverines improve their
record to 23-5 at a chilly Ray Fisher
Stadium. The Titans dropped to 3-14.
IN THE FIRST game, pitcher John
Rogers of Detroit and the Wolverines
Chris Lutz battled into the third inning
without allowing any runs. Then the
floodgates opened, as the Titans
became inept in the field.
With one out and third baseman Jeff
Kiel on second, Eddie Woolwine's
chopper to third was fielded cleanly
by Titan Rick Munson, but he
proceeded to throw the ball to
Alcatraz putting runners on second
and third. Error number one.
Casey Close drove Kiel home with a
sacrifice fly and Bill St. Peter singled
driving in Woolwine. Tom Brock's in-
Crash of the Titans
nocent fly ball to short right caused a
collision between Detroit's second baseman
and right fielder as the ball fell in..
St. Peter scored while Brock stopped at
second. Error number two.
CATCHER Eric Sanders then
singled to center and Brock came
home when Steve Wujczyk let the ball
get past him. Error number three.
Shortstop Don Guobis committed the
fourth error of the inning on the next
batter, but no further damage was
done. All three runs were unearned.
Lutz, meanwhile, was the recipient
of outstanding defensive support as
centerfielder Kourtney Thompson
made his second diving catch in as
many days. Lutz (2-0) struck out five
and allowed three hits in four innings.
"Chris looked really good," said
Sanders. "In the cold weather like
this, people tend to be stiff and
generally don't want to hit. He just
went at them and he threw strikes."
THE SECOND game was like the
first as the Titans erred three times,
including one in the eighth inning to
give Michigan the 3-2, extra-inning
With one out in the eighth and
Wolverines on first and second, Steve
Finken hit an easy grounder to
second. On what looked to be a sure
double play ball, Tom Dimambro
failed to get his body in front of the
ball, and it wandered into center.
As St. Peter reached home with the
winning run, he was mobbed by his
teammates, who, along with the few
fans that remained, headed im-
mediately for the heaters.
MICHIGAN head coach Bud Mid-
daugh said that basic fundamentals
cannot be stressed enough.
"Maybe they've lost quite a few
other games just the way they lost the
second one today or the first one," he
said. "You kick the ball around like

DETROIT - Dennis "Oil Can" Boyd must have been
The Red Sox pitcher was cheated out of a victory by a
bumbling Boston bullpen yesterday. The Sox' relievers
gave up four Tiger runs in the last three innings, including
one on Dave Bergman's two-out single in the 10th, to hand
Detroit a 6-5 victory.
BERGMAN, pinch-hitting in third baseman Darnell
Coles' spot, drove Darrell Evans home on a bases-loaded
liner through the right side of the infield. Evans had tied
the game a moment earlier with a run-scoring single. The
Detroit designated hitter blasted two upper deck
homeruns and collected four RBI on the afternoon.
Boston had taken a 5-4 lead in its half of the 10th when a
Wade Boggs single sent Glenn Hoffman in from second.
Boggs, four for six in the contest, also knocked a two-run
homer in the third inning.

Willie Hernandez recorded the win despite giving up the
go-ahead run in his one inning on the mound. Frank
Tanana started for the Tigers.
Boyd, holding Detroit to two runs in seven innings,
threw heat despite the 38-degree temperature at game
time. The lanky righthander gave up just three hits before
he was replaced by Joe Sambito in the eighth. The former
Houston Astros' star made a quick exit, lasting all of one-
third inning. Sambito got the hook when he surrendered a
run on Kirk Gibson's RBI double.
Loser Bob Stanley replaced the southpaw, but fared no
better. The righthander offered up back-to-back singles to
Lance Parrish and Evans, scoring Gibson to tie the game,
Stanley lasted until the 10th, when Gibson clubbed a
single for his third hit of the day. Steve Crawford came in
with the Tiger rightfielder representing the tying run. The
Boston hurler gave up two walks and two hits to give
Detroit the victory.

Midway through spring practice,
Michigan head coach' Bo Schem-
bechler made his first prediction for
the 1986 campaign in an interview
with the -Daily football staff last
Friday in his office.
"Now I may be wrong, but I expect
our defense to be as good (this year) as
last," he said. "If it's not, I'll be up-
THE COMMENT raised a few
eyebrows at the meeting since the
defense will have to give up less than
8.1 points and 263 yards per game to
make the prediction statistically
"Hey, it's the only way to play,"
Schembechler said. "You can have a
great offense, but you don't know
when you're going to get the ball?
When you have all (the defense), it's a

Cochran," Schembechler said. "I
mean, you're talking about three great
players. But still, it'll be the same
type of defense."
So far this spring, the most intense
battles for starting spots are at out-
side linebacker. Four lettermen -
Carl Bostic, Dieter Heren, Tim
Schulte and Steve Thibert - all have
shots at the two openings.
HEREN, NOW fully recovered from
the strained knee ligaments he suf-
fered against Purdue last November,
started the season opener against
Notre Dame, but made his fame on
special teams where he blocked two
field goals and a punt.
Thibert played in all twelve games
last year and made 16 tackles, in-
cluding two sacks. He also started the 4
Notre Dame game.
Bostic and Schulte combined for 23
tackles and each recorded a sack.
"(THE FOUR) know what's going
on," said new Wolverine linebacker
coach Tom Reed, the former head
coach at North Carolina State. "They
have been a great aid to me, believe it
or not, in learning and adjusting to the
schemes. I don't pretend to know
everything and those guys have
helped me a lot. 4
"Now on the field, all of them have
played, but not regularly. Physically,
they're willing and mentally they're
willing. Now all we have to do is prac-
tice. I like all their chances (for star-
ting), but I just can't tell you what
we're going to do."
Underclassmen Joe Holland, Keith
Cooper, John Willingham and Chris
Simmons may also make a mark on
the linebacking situation.
IN OTHER spring football news:
" Cam Cameron and Bill Harris are
the new full-time assistants on
Schembechler's staff. Cameron, 25,
will coach the tight ends and Harris,
38, will take care of the wideouts.
Harris replaces Bob Thornbladh who
went into private business in Tampa,
" In the position change department,
quarterback Bob Cernak is now a
tight end. According to Schem-
bechler, Cernak has beefed up to 225
pounds. Junior Erik Campbell moved
from wideout to safety, the position he
played his freshman year.
