Daily Baseball Writer
Michigan State pulled into Fisher
Stadium yesterday, and the
Wolverines pulled out their brooms.
" For a change of pace, Michigan did
the sweeping in its afternoon
doubleheader, defeating the Spartans
3-2 in eight innings, and 2-1.
Michigan (20-17 overall, 6-8 in
the Big Ten) had developed a habit of
dropping twin bills with conference
foes, doing so against Indiana and
Iowa. But after an unsettling loss to
Central Michigan Tuesday, the
Wolverines decided it would be best
to regroup before digging its own
grave even deeper.
Michigan coach Bill Freehan held
a pre-game discussion with his team
about the team's pride, goals, and
losing. And just when it appeared
the ban on postseason play was
causing more of a detriment than
was originally thought, the
Wolverines displayed character and
enthusiasm in the late innings that
; was hitherto unexhibited this season.
"I don't know what got them into
the ballgame," Freehan said. "The
great weather, the state rivalry, the
discussion - I hope it was a
combination of all three."
Michigan State (20-9, 9-5) and
Michigan stood deadlocked at 2-2
after the regulation seven innings of
the first game, after Wolverine
" righty Todd Marion replaced starter
Rick Leonard in the fifth inning.
The sophomore reliever posted four
scoreless innings for his longest
stint in his collegiate career.
"I liked Marion's confidence,"
Freehan said. "He stayed ahead of the
hitters. He was very positive out

Dan Ruff gave Marion the
victory with an eighth inning RBI
that sent home Matt Morse. Morse
singled and advanced to third on Tim
Flannelly's ensuing single. With
one out, Ruff launched a fly ball to
the warning track in right field,
enabling Morse to jog home with
the winning run.
In the second game, Michigan
State's Tony Doll attempted to in-
tentionally walk Mike Matheny in
the bottom of the seventh of the sec-
ond game, after Andy Fairman took
third on a double and an error. Doll's
pitch veered wild, and Fairman came
home with the second victory.
"Fairman was a horse out there
for us today," Freehan said. "He
scored both runs, he dug a double
play ball out of the dirt - he played
excellent baseball."
The Spartans scored the game's
first run after first baseman Duane
Young lined a third inning single to
right and moved to second on a Kirt
Ojala wild pitch. Ojala notched a
strikeout and a pop-out, but then
surrendered an RBI single' to Bob
The Wolverines answered in the
fifth when Fairman drew a walk.
Matheny sent him to second on a
sacrifice bunt, and Dave Everly
scored Fairman with a double.
Michigan received a boost from
its first basemen in the game. Greg
Haeger, who started the previous
game at first base, came on in relief
in the top of the eighth. Haeger re-
tired the side and led off the bottom
of the inning with a long fly out.
Fairman, who guarded the right bag
in the second game, then initiated
his game-winning journey around
the bases.

Women's lacrosse
wins Indiana tourney
From Staff Reports
The Michigan women's lacrosse club travelled to Bloomington,
Indiana, this past weekend for the Indiana Lacrosse Tournament. Despite
the Wolverines' limited experience, the team managed to come away with
the title.
Michigan played all three games in one day, with the best performances
coming against Purdue in the first round. The Wolverines rolled over the
Boilermakers, earning an 8-1 victory.
The next opponent was Indiana in the second round, where the two
teams played to a hard-fought 3-3 tie. Michigan had a scare when the
Hoosiers were awarded a direct penalty shot with one second remaining on
the clock, but the Michigan squad distracted the shooter just enough for her
to miss, preserving a tie for the Wolverines.
Michigan faced Ohio University in the final contest of the afternoon.
Employing an impressive passing game, the Wolverines appeared to
dominate the early stages of the match. Many missed shot opportunities on
the part of Michigan, however, kept the score close. In the end, Michigan
escaped with a 3-2 victory and the tournament championship.
Defense player Jodi Sokol was pleased with her team's performance.
"Everyone worked really hard and nobody was lazing off," she
explained. "Everybody's psyched up for next year - we have a lot (f
returning talent. I've only played this year, but I definitely think
(women's lacrosse) is an up-and-coming sport - we certainly haven't hit
our prime."'
