The Michigan baseball team
went through its toughest test of
the season last weekend as it faced
top Big Ten foe, Minnesota. The
Wolverines passed with flying col-
ors as they beat the Golden Gophers
three out of four times.
"It was a typical conference
in weekend play
weekend," said Michigan coach Bud
Middaugh. "All the games were ex-
tremely close. I'm exhausted."
Michigan cannot truly gauge
themselves on this weekend's series
because they were playing a rusty
team. Minnesota just began its
season last weekend.
"IT'S STILL very early on in
the season," said Middaugh. "All
this weekend was, was just jockey-
ing for position in the playoffs."
Michigan did a lot of jockeying
indeed, as it beat Minnesota in a
photo finish in Saturday's first
game, scoring four times in the
fifth to break a 1-1 tie. Mike Ig-
nasiak, now 6-0, picked up the win
giving up one run and striking out
six in five innings of work. Phil
Price broke the tie and handed Ig-
nasiak the win with a two-run dou-
ble. Bill St. Peter iced the affair
with a two-run home run.
Ignasiak, who pitched five great
innings, lost it in the sixth, when
he walked three batters. Middaugh
called for Ross Powell, who cleaned
up the mess by striking out Jeff
Goergen and getting Dan Wilson to
hit into a 1-6-3 double play. Chris
Lutz finished the game and got the
In the second game another
starting pitcher, Jim Abbott, lost
his control late in the game.
ABBOTT WAS stumbling
along until the fifth, when, with a
four-run lead, he gave up two dou-
bles and a home run. Again, Mid-
daugh reached into his bullpen and
Dave Peralta put out the fire. Ross
Grimes finished up matters to earn
his second save of the season.
Sunday's opener was another
tight race as Michigan crossed the
wire to win the game, 7-6 in eight
innings. Michigan started Satur-
day's saving grace Lutz, but he
couldn't deliver this time, yielding
a home run to the first batter of the
game, Joe Bruett.
Middaugh then used the other
Saturday ace Ross Grimes and
Grimes, like Lutz, threw oil on the
fire, giving up three runs in two
innings. Michigan came back to
win it, handing Peralta a well de-

Michigan men's tennis began
defense of its Big Ten title with
two easy victories last weekend.
They volleyed past Purdue on
Saturday, 8-1, and they coasted past
Illinois on Sunday, 9-0.
The two victories increased the
Wolverines consecutive Big Ten
victories to 20. The last time they
lost within the conference was in
1986, when they were beaten by
THE WOLVERINES came
out a little nervous against Purdue
since it was their first Big Ten
match. The Boilermakers made the
most of that by winning a match,
and extending the Wolverines to
three sets in three matches before
