WOLVERINE HITTERS SWEEP FERRIS STATE, 6-5, 9-3

Rain, B
by Tim Rardin
Daily Baseball Writer
It was a case of 'better late than
never' yesterday for the Michigan
baseball team. After a rain delay that
nearly exceeded the length of the
first game of their doubleheader with
Ferris State, the Wolverines finally
came away with with 6-5 and 9-3
victories.
"I was glad to get some innings
in because we've been playing in the
snow and rain," Michigan coach Bill
Freehan said.. "We need to play
games like this to get some guys in
and find out what they can do."

Before the rains came, Michigan
(13-14 overall) took advantage of
the rare baseball-type weather. Chris
Newton (2-2) worked four innings,
allowing only four hits. The
Wolverine bats were equally on
track, as five different batters
collected seven hits.
Matt Idoni led the way, capping
off the third inning with his second
homer of the season, a two-un blast
to right field.
Michigan added three more runs
in the fourth inning, but the weather
would slow down the Wolverine of-

can't stop Blue

fense, as the game was delayed in
the middle of the fifth.
Two hours later, it was Ferris
State (4-12) who lit up the score-
board, scoring three runs in the sixth
to pull within a single run, 6-5. But
Bryan Santo took the mound in the
seventh with a pair of strikeouts to
notch his first save.
After falling behind in the sec-
ond game, 3-0, Michigan turned
things around quickly as Ron Hollis
(1-0) came in to pitch in the fourth,
shutting down the next eight Bulldog
hitters.

Likewise, the Wolverine offense
exploded for a monstrous six-run
fourth inning with five consecutive
hits featuring everything except a
home run. The Idoni show contin-
ued, as the sophomore knocked
home two runs in the inning, and a
total of three in the game behind two
doubles and a single.
Michigan would add three more
runs before it was over, ending the
sweep with 14 hits and a 9-3 victory.
The Wolverines will play again
today at 3 p.m. in a single game with
Detroit Mercy at Fisher Stadium.
