Dinger parade leads
Blue over Purdue
By RICHARD EISEN
Earlier this spring, the road was unkind to the Michigan baseball
team, as they lost five of ten games in Texas.
But things have changed, as the road has become a little less nasty to
the Wolverines. Last weekend at Purdue they swept two doubleheaders
from the Boilermakers, giving them eight straight Big Ten road victo-
ries. In all, Michigan has won 17 straight road games.
In its last eight road games, Michigan, 31-7, 11-1 in the Big Ten,
has scored 52 runs while allowing the opposition to score only eight
times. And this past weekend was no different as Michigan creamed
Purdue with a barrage of masterful pitching and raw power.
The balls were smashed.
Many divots were implanted behind the walls as Michigan hit 13
home runs, including back-to-back taters, a variety of two-run and three-
run dingers, plus a Steve Finken grand slam.
The Purdue bats were smashed.
The Wolverine pitchers, who rested most of last week, were just as
sharp as the hitters, tossing three shutouts.
IN SATURDAY'S first game, sophomore Mike Grimes pitched
the first of the weekend shutouts, winning 1-0. Grimes, 4-0, needed
Ross Powell's help to pick up the win. Michigan got the lone run of
the game when Eddie Woolwine walked, stole second and was singled
home by Bill St. Peter, one of three St. Peter game winning RBI's on
In the second game, Michigan got its home run trots in gear, scoring
eight runs in the seventh inning. In the Wolverine 14-4 win, Finken hit
his grand slam along with Darren Campbell's first of three weekend
shots. Phil Price homered for his team-leading ninth as Tom Brock also
hit the first of his three weekend round trippers. Mike Ignasiak, 7-1,
picked up his 30th career win, which ties a Michigan record held by
While the team slept Saturday night, their bats didn't as Michigan
continued the barrage on Sunday. In the first game, St. Peter continued
his torrid streak, hitting two home runs while Finken and Greg Haegar
connected for back-to-back shots. Junior Chris Lutz, now 5-1, pitched
an 11-0 shutout.
The nightcap featured the third shutout of the series, pitched by Jim
Abbott, 6-1, lowering his ERA to 4.10. Campbell, Brock, and Finken
all connected for homers.
Michigan hosts second place Michigan State, 9-3 in the Big Ten, in
an important doubleheader tomorrow at Ray Fisher Stadium.

For the women's team, shot put-
ter Sonya Payne finished in third
with a toss of 44'8". Payne said she1
"wasn't that happy," with her per-'
formance, yet she did say that this
was definitely making progress.
Payne is looking forward to thej
national meets and the opportunity
to qualify for the Olympic trials.
"Realistically, I don't think I can
make it to the games, but I want to
have the chance to try," said Payne.
"It would be nice just to say I made
it that far."
Coach James Henry was pleased
with Payne, and 10,000-meter runner
Cheri Sly. Coming off a foot in-
jury, Sly had a time of 35:16.96, to
"I was pretty happy with the race,
especially considering the injury,"
said Sly. "As soon as I got off the
line, I was hurting. It's slowly get-
ting better, but I'm having trouble
HENRY ALSO noted the
performances of Melissa Thompson,
who finished sixth in the 1500-meter
race, and Mindy Rowand, with a
time of 16:50.6 in the 3000-meter
"I felt we did pretty good," said
Henry. "We still need a lot of work,
but it's a good place to start from.

For the men's team, Matt Butler
finished sixth in the 800-meter race,
with a time of 1:50.96. Jon Scherrer
finished seventh in the invitational
5000-meters with a time of 13:58.2.
Coach Jack Harvey had strong per-
formances from two relay teams.

sixth, and the 800-meter relay fin-
ished third, with a time of 1:25.05.

time of 30:40.8. Following McKay
was Tony Carna, who finished
fourth at 31:09 and Darryl Eddy fin-
ished sixth, at 31:34.
