Page 12-The Michigan Daily- Tuesday, April 21, 1992
The Michigan baseball team faces Eastern Michigan
University at 3 p.m. today at Fisher Stadium. The make-
up game was originally rained out on March 31.
The Wolverines (8-8 in the Big Ten, 18-21 overall)
have lost four of their last five games and will look to
the hot bats of Steve Buerkel and Scott Winterlee to
help end the skid.
Buerkel, a senior outfielder, leads Michigan in hit-
ting with a .381 average. Buerkel has also been a me-
nace on the base paths with 12 stolen bases in 18 at-
tempts. Winterlee, a junior, upped his average to .346
by going 4-for-5 in Sunday's finale against Indiana.
Rookie Ron Hollis, last season's Mr. Baseball on the
Michigan high school circuit, has been Michigan's best
pitcher of late. With victories in his last three outings,
Hollis sports a perfect 3-0 record on the season.
Michigan has split its two previous contests against
Eastern. Eastern took the opener in Ypsilanti by a 9-8
score, and the Wolverines took the second contest in
Ann Arbor, 3-2.
Looking ahead to the weekend, Michigan State rolls
into Fisher Stadium for a double header Saturday at 1
p.m. The Spartans took two from Northwestern on
Sunday. After facing the Spartans, the Wolverines will
have exam-week off before hosting four games against
Ohio State the ensuing weekend.

"We're not going to change our
game plan,"MMichigan sophomore
shortstop Mary Campana said.

cluding nine doubles, four triples
and one dinger - and 23 RBI.
