Broncos trample Blue hitters
19 runs are most allowed since 1989 season
by Ryan Herrington
Daily Baseball Writer
The best thing about yesterday's
baseball game between Michigan
and Western Michigan was it wasn't
a doubleheader. The Broncos scored
two or more runs in six of the nine
innings, thrashing the Wolverines,
19-3, at Fisher Stadium.
"We didn't pitch very well. We
didn't hit very well. We didn't play
very well," Michigan coach Bill
The Broncos (6-4 Mid American
Conference, 16-13 overall) scored
early against Michigan starter Eric
Heintschel (3-5). Western's Steve
Sallee led off the game with a walk
and advanced to third on Jeff
Dahley's double to left.
Scott Conant, the MAC player of
the year in 1991, proceded to hit a 1-
0 pitch to right center for a single,
scoring Sallee and Dahley.
Later in the inning, with runners
on second and third and two out,
Bronco Brian Louis tripled off the
center field fence, scoring two more
runs in the process. Louis was
thrown out at home trying to extend
the triple to a home run.
"Hitting is really funny," Western
coach Fred Decker said. "A couple
guys started off hitting the ball well
early in the game. It seems like hit-
ting is like a fire, somebody starts it
and then it keeps going. If you start
off real slow, and they strike a cou-
ple guys out, sometimes you don't
get any hits. We had a great day with
the bats today."
Western continued its offensive
outburst in the third and fourth in-
nings. Dahley led off the top of the
third with a home run, his third of
the year, against Michigan's Heath
Murray. Bronco Matt Terrill doubled
down the right field line scoring
Brian Hostetler for the second run of
Michigan wcnt to its third
pitcher, Terry Woods, in the fourth,
who proceeded to give up two more
runs in his inning of work.
Throughout the contest, the
Wolverines (17-18 overall) had dif-
ficulty driving in runners. Michigan
left a total of 16 runners on base for
"I thought we had good concen-
tration (Tuesday) when we were
playing," Freehan said. "Today
(Wednesday), we didn't seem to
have it, offensively or defensively."
Michigan broke into the scoring
column in the fifth inning when des-
ignated hitter Nate Holdren belted a
1-0 fastball over the left field wall
for his fourth home run of the sea-
The rally continued when Toby
Brzoznowski singled to right, ad-
vanced to second on a walk and
scored on Matt Copp's bloop hit to
The Broncos bounced back for;
five runs in the sixth, thanks to a
two-run dinger from Hostetler, his
fifth on the year. Western sent 11
batters to the plate against two
Wolverine hurlers, scoring four of
the five runs with two outs.
In the seventh inning, the
Broncos sent eight more batters to
the plate and scored four more runs
on only two hits to take a 17- 2 lead.
Michigan's last run came in the
bottom of the seventh, when pinch
hitter Ron Hollis hit a long fly to
center which was dropped for a two-
base error. Catcher Bubba Wyn-
garden singled, moving Hollis to
third. After a Copp strikeout, Wes
tern's Steve Loomas walked Rodney*
Goble and Todd Fracassi in
succession, forcing in Hollis.
Western ended the scoring in the
ninth with two more runs off Todd'
Marion, Michigan's eighth and final
pitcher. In total, Michigan used 26
people in the game, with only Copp-
and Goble playing all nine innings.
"We got an opportunity to get
some guys into the ballgame that re-
ally haven't had a chance to do some
things from about the fourth inning
on," Freehan said. "That's the only
real positive (from the game)."
The 19-run outburst was the most
runs scored against Michigan since
1989 when the Wolverines allowed
the same total against Ferris State.
Yet, Freehan tried to be optimistic
about the defeat.
"One run losses are tougher than
situations like this," Freehan said.
The Michigan baseball team fell victim to Western Michigan yesterday, 19-
3. The Wolverines dropped to 17-18 overall.

Western Michigan hurler Heather
Crowl kept the Michigan bats silent
in the first game of a doubleheader
yesterday, as she threw a no-hitter to
down the Wolverines, 6-0. Mich-
igan (6-2 Big Ten, 22-16 overall)
rebounded to tally seven hits in the
nightcap and won, 4-0, to finish the
day with a split.

group offensively and defensively in
the first game and I let them know
it," Hutchins said.
After the talk from Hutchins,
Michigan went another three score-
less innings in the nightcap before
getting on the board twice in the
It was an all-rookie inning as
centerfielder Lisa Arvia drew a walk
to start the inning. Classmate Kim
Clark, who saw action behind the
plate, drove in the run with a double.
Michelle Silver then hit a single to
bring home pinch runner Kerry

Michigan scored their final two
runs in the bottom of the fifth.
Hitting at the top of the order,
sophomore Mary Campana singled
and then scored on senior Stacey
Heam's triple. Heams went on to
score the final run of the game on a
Junior Kelly Forbis (5-4) went
the distance to record the shutout
victory. She allowed four hits and no
walks, while striking out three.
"Kelly was outstanding," Hutch-
ins said. "She pitched her best game
of the year."
Michigan resumes Big Ten play
Friday and Saturday, with double-
headers both days at Indiana. The
two teams have had similar results
against Big Ten opponents so far this
Indiana (10-6, 19-20) has beaten
Penn State three times, swept
Michigan State, split with North-
western, and dropped three to Iowa.
Last year, the two teams split the
four-game series. Michigan won the
first two, 2-0, 5-1, but lost the next
pair by identical 2-1 scores.
