"In the first game, we had a zillion
opportunities," Hutchins said. "We
just didn't get the big hit."
In the second game, the story was
the same, but the Wolverines weren't
as fortunate. Michigan pitcher Kelly
Holmes (8-9) allowed only two runs
on four hits, but Michigan lost, 2-0.
The Eagles' Melissa Droulliard (6-6)
got the win.
"I'm disappointed," Hutchins said.
"But Eastern's an awful good team.

We're playing well, but (when) you
don'tget some big hits, you're not
going to win the game, and that's
what happened."
Eagles coach Connie Miner was
frustrated too, but respected both
teams' efforts.
"It would have been nice to take
two," Miner said. "But I think we
both (played) pretty good games."
After this break from conference
play, the Wolverines continue their
quest for a third straight Big Ten title
when they head to Penn State for
games tomorrow and Saturday.

Wolverine hitters hope weather is
on their side today against Eastern

Smith

By RYAN WHITE
{ DAILY BASEBALL WRITER
It's the game that just won't go
away.'
The Michigan baseball team (7-5
Big Ten, 13-15 overall) will attempt to
play Eastern Michigan for the third
time this season today at 3 p.m. at
Fisher Stadium - weather permit-
ting.
Their first two tries have-not been
very successful.
On April 5, Michigan led 4-0 in the
bottom of the fourth inning when a
light drizzle turned into a downpour.
After an hour and a half delay, the rain
forced the game's cancellatioi.
The second attempt came Tues-
day. However, Michigan was forced
to make up a Big Ten doubleheader at
Penn State Monday, cancelling try
No. 2. Of course, it would not have
mattered because it rained anyway.
The third attempt comes today.
Ray Ricken (4-3, 3.08 ERA) gets
the start for the Wolverines, and
Michigan coach Bill Freehan plans

on using a pitcher an inning for the
rest of the game. It is a strategy that
Freehan employed last week against
Oakland in order to give all his pitch-
ers some game work.
The Wolverines' pitching staff,
faces an Eagle team which is batting
.251. The Eastern lineup boasts two
hitters with averages over .300. Don
DeDonatis is hitting .309, and Curtis
Baker leads the team with an average
of .328.
Centerfielder Brian Simmons
leads Michigan at the plate. Thus far,
he is hitting .359 with 19 RBI and two
home runs. Four other Wolverines
are also hitting over .300 - Scott
Niemiec (.339), Scott Weaver (.337),
Ryan Van Oeveren (.326) and Chad
Chapman (.304).
The Eagles come into Fisher Sta-
dium on the heels of a doubleheader,
yesterday at Toledo. Michigan hasn't.
played since it split a pair of games
against Penn State Monday.
RAIN, RAIN, GO AWAY: It is begin-
ning to look like Michigan's biggest

opposition isn't the opposing team,
but the weather.
The Wolverines have been strug-
gling to get games in. Because of last
week's bad weather, Michigan sched-
uled an impromptu game against Oak-O
land.
Wednesday, the Wolverines had
their eighth game of the season post-
poned due to the weather. Michigan's
contest against Notre Dame fell vic-
tim to the rainy conditions.
WINTERS RETURNs: Add another
seat in the bullpen.
After taking a week off at the end
of spring football, sophomore pitcher*
Chuck Winters returns to the Wolver-
ine baseball squad this Monday.
"I came to a few of the games and
I wanted to go out there and runaround,"
Winters said. "It was tough watching,
knowing I should be out there."
Winters appeared in four games
last season, all during the Wolver-
ines' spring trip. His season was cut
short when he broke a finger during-
spring football drills.
