St Peter, Ignasiak lead Blue

By GREG MOLZON,
Going into yesterday's home opener against Grand
Valley State, Michigan baseball coach Bud Middaugh
downplayed his team's abilities despite its 7-2 record.
Middaugh admitted then that "coaches are never
pleased," but even he had to be impressed after the
Wolverines swept the Lakers, 6-1 and 11-2, at Ray
Fisher Stadium.
Or was he? "Yes and no," said Middaugh. "I felt it
was a tough game to evaluate. We took an awful lot of
itches, yet we were able to put some points on the
board. I thought overall our pitching was pretty good."
"Pretty good" is an understatement when describing
the performance of pitcher Mike Ignasiak in the opening
game. Ignasiak, now 2-2, pitched four perfect innings,
had five strikeouts, and never had a ball hit out of the
infield.
MIDDAUGH considered leaving Ignasiak in due to
the perfect game, but the Wolverine coach needed to give
his other pitchers some work.
"I was very pleased with (my pitching)," said
gnasiak. "I wish (Middaugh) would have left me in to
see how long I could keep the no-hitter going, but he
had to give some other pitchers a shot, too."
Replacing Ignasiak, Chris Lutz struck out the first
three batters he faced before giving up the Lakers' first
hit of the game, a double by Chris Looney in the sixth
inning. Looney tagged up and moved to third on an
outstanding diving catch by Darrin Campbell in right
field and then scored on a single by Dave Ehlert off
pitcher Greg Everson, who replaced Lutz.

The Wolverines opened the scoring in the fourth
inning when Mike Gillette singled in Greg McMurtry,
who had doubled and went to third when Rich
Samplinski was thrown out at the plate.
Michigan scored five more runs in the game, the key
hits being triples by Steve Finken and Bill St. Peter in
the fifth and a two-run double by St. Peter in the sixth.
In the contest, St. Peter went 4-for-4 and had three RBIs,
and Campbell and Ed Woolwine each added two singles.
WITH SOME wild pitching from Laker pitcher
Gary Smith, the Wolverines broke the second game open
early. Michigan scored four runs in the first inning on
doubles by Finken and Tom Brock, a walk, a hit
batsman, and an error.
And that was all the scoring the Wolverines would
need. They received solid pitching performances from
Jim Abbott, Mike Grimes, and Ross Powell who
limited the Lakers (5-3) to three hits.
Abbott evened his record at 1-1 while pitching foul
innings, giving up one hit, and striking out two. The
sophomore did get a little wild, walking three batters,
but felt he improved on his spring trip showing.
"Coach and I have been working, and I felt a lot more
comfortable with my motion today than I did down
South," said Abbott.
The Wolverine hitters added seven more runs late in
the game behind a St. Peter double, a triple by Jim
Durham, and one of each by Phil Price.
After thinking about the two impressive victories for
a while, Middaugh finally said, "I thought for the most
part, the kids did a pretty good job."

Wolverine netters shut out Hu

By JULIE HOLLMAN
Finishing a run of home non-
conference matches, the men's
tennis team blanked Eastern
Michigan, 9-0, yesterday at the
Track and Tennis Building. The
Imore powerful Wolverines

dominated the Hurons across the
board as each match ended in
straight sets.
Wolverine Dan Goldberg,
playing in the number-one position
for the first time this year, set the
pace by quickly disposing of Matt

Kuhlman, 6-1, 6-1. Goldberg's
steady baseline play, which has
helped him gain the 58th national
ranking slot, was too much for
Kulman to handle.
The second singles proved to be
more challenging for Michigan's
John Royer. EMU's Greg Kennett
stayed within one game through
most of the first set until Royer
pulled out a 6-4 win. After this first
set threat, Royer refused to play
anymore games and shut out
Kennett in the second set, 6-0.
IN THE THIRD position, Ed
Filer turned in one of his strongest
matches of the season defeating
EMU's Scott Lyke, 6-1, 6-3. "Ed
had his best performance this year,"
said Michigan head coach Brian
Eisner. "He moved well and had
near perfect shot selection."
On the next court, the fourth
rung of the ladder almost split from
the constant pounding delivered by
Wolverine Jon Morris. The junior
dazzled the crowd with a crushing
display of strength. He allowed his
opponent Dean Dancer one service
break before delivering several aces
and serving out a 6-3 first set. In
the next frame, Morris cranked up
the power until he was virtually
unhittable and ended his match, 6-1.
Brad Koontz continued the wave
of dominance cruising through his
match, 6-1, 6-0. The last singles to
be completed was no more a duel
than any other match before it.
Wolverine Franz Gieger capitalized
on a rare chance to play by rolling
over Jim Arvidson, 6-1, 6-3.
The high level of play continued

into te e oubles as michigan
maintained all its leads and captured
all three matches. Michael
Pizzutello and Chip McColl filled
in for Goldberg and Koontz at third
doubles and reeled in a convincing
6-1, 6-1 victory.
Eisner was pleased with his
team's level of improvement. "This
match we improved more on
movement than in any other
match," he explained.
