'M'sweeps Washtenaw Series
BY STEVEN COHEN
The Michigan baseball team won its seventh
consecutive game to raise its record to 12-4 and swept
the "Washtenaw Series," defeating its Ypsilanti
neighbor Eastern Michigan in doubleheaders last
The Wolverines won 12-4 and 9-6 on Saturday at
Fisher Stadium and followed suit with 12-6 and 6-4
victories on Sunday at EMU.
"We didn't hit well and we didn't pitch well,"
Huron coach Roger Coryell said on Saturday.
"Everything Michigan did seemed to work. They
played well defensively and got some good pitching.
Thank God we're playing tomorrow. If we had to wait
another week to play I think I would probably shoot
On both days, the Hurons, 7-8, were hurt by errors
and by Michigan scoring outbursts. In Saturday's first
contest, the Wolverines broke open a 4-1 game with
an eight run fifth inning.
Pitcher Ross Powell went 6 1/3 innings to get his

In game two, Michigan countered the Hurons'
three-run first inning with four runs of its own. It
needed to score two runs in the sixth inning to ice the
7-6 contest. Jeff Tanderys earned his first victory of the
Rightfielder Phil Price, whose streak of reaching
base consecutively was stopped at 15 in the first game,
went 4-4 in Saturday's second game with a homer,
triple, and two singles.
On Sunday, righthander Mike Grimes worked six
innings to up his record to 1-1. Rightfielder Jim
Durham socked a two-run homer to pace the Wolverine
attack. In the second game, righthander Tim Lata
increased his record to 3-0 and John Locker recorded his
Secondbaseman Matt Morse, who raised his
average to .417 on a 6-7 day, started the game winning
rally with a run-scoring double.
"We played a little erratic today maybe it was
because the conditions were so bad but I'm satisfied, "

"There are rumors, I guess, which

facts, " said one player who declined

Michigan left-hander Ross Powell throws towards home plate Saturday en route to his first victory of the
year. He went 6 and one-third innings against the Eastern Michigan Hurons, beating them 12-4. The
Wolverines, 12-4, swept the four-game series from the Hurons. On the darker side, the Michigan baseball
