Six games.
That's how long the Michigan soft-
ball team's winning streak is after it
swept two doubleheaders from North-
western last Friday and Saturday.
With their toughest stretch of the
season ahead of them -eight games in
five days - the Wolverines (6-2 Big
Ten, 18-16 overall) look to continue to
their streak as they head to Michigan
State (2-6, 15-14) for a doubleheader
today at Old College Field at 3 p.m.
"We're starting to put things to-
gether," Michigan coach Carol
Hutchins said. "We're starting to play
with confidence and I think that the
most important factor is my team
thinks they can win right now."
Michigan has good reason to be-
lieve. Third baseman Tracy Carr went
5-for-15 against the Wildcats with six
runs batted in. Carr increased her team
leading average to .291, and also tops
the Wolverines in RBI with 20.
Besides Carr, pitcher Kelly
Kovach (8-8, 1.44 earned run aver-
age) is back on track. Kovach threw a
2-0 shutout against Northwestern in
the teams' first meeting Friday, and
Hutchins guaranteed that her ace will

start one of today's games.
The Spartans are fresh off two con-
secutive doubleheader splits with Min-
nesota. Prior to that, they had lost their
first four Big Ten contests to Iowa.
Although it has not gotten off to a
strong start, Hutchins expects Michi-
gan State to provide tough competi-
tion.
"Records won't mean a thing,"
Hutchins said. "We have to gear up
for State and be expecting a tough
battle. They definitely are fired up.
They're out to upset everybody and
I've gotta believe this is probably
their biggest rivalry of the year."
The Spartans are loaded offen-
sively. They have four players batting
over .300, and own an impressive
.286 team average. Michigan State is
lead by Janelle Howe (.343,7 RBI) and
Patti Raduenz (.341, 16).
In addition to its solid hitting, the
Spartans' pitching is holding the op-
position toa.238 average. Alina Baron
(5-7, 1.60) and Stacey Smith (7-6,
2.22) will do most of the work.
The Wolverines will attempt to
increase more than their string of con-
ference victories. They have beaten
Michigan State in 12 straight games
and lead the all-time series, 35-16.

The Michigan baseball team has a
splitting headache and it has Penn
State to thank for it.
The Wolverines (7-5 Big Ten, 12-
14 overall) who are battling for first
place in the Big Ten, split a double-
header yesterday with the last-place
Nittany Lions (3-8, 11-15) for the
second time in the series.
Michigan dropped the opening

The Wolverines salvaged the sec-
ond game thanks to a solid mop-up
job by Matt Ferullo and John Arvai in
relief of starter Chris Newton. Ferullo
(3-1) retired six straight batters for
the win and Arvai pitched a perfect
seventh to earn his fifth save in as
many opportunities.
Newton pitched three scoreless

The Michigan baseball team completed its weekend series against Penn
State yesterday with a doubleheader split. The Wolverines played yesterday
after Sunday's games were cancelled due to rain. They also split Saturday's
doubleheader with the last-place Nittany Lions.
