Michigan splits
four-game set
with Spartans


By John Leroi
Daily Baseball Writer
EAST LANSING - Fisher Sta-
dium must be a hitters' ballpark.
Either that, or the good bats don't
come out on Easter Sunday.
After Michigan and Michigan
State combined for 34 runs Satur-
day in Ann Arbor, the Wolverines
split a doubleheader with the Spar-
tans at Kobs Field yesterday.
"I don't know," Michigan coach
Bill Freehan said. "You think you're
going to see an offensive series af-
ter the first game, but then it doesn't
end up that way."
In the series opener, Michigan
(6-8Big Ten, 15-21 overall) torched
Michigan State 15-4, powered by a
five-run fifth inning.
In the nightcap, the Wolverines
blew a 4-2 lead and ended up suc-
cumbing to the Spartans (9-7 Big
Ten, 17-15 overall), 9-6. Sunday,
Michigan lost the first game, 5-2,
but won the second, 4-3.
In Saturday's first game, the
r Wolverines looked like they owned
the top spot in the Big Ten, not the
cellar. Michigan scored in every in-
ning except the seventh.
Each Wolverine starter collected
at least one hit and all nine crossed
the plate except for designated hit-
ter Scott Weaver.
Third baseman Kelly Dransfeldt
led the attack with a 3-for-4 perfor-
mance, two RBI and three runs
scored. Shortstop Ryan Van

"It just shows
you the caliber of
play in the Big
- Bill Freehan
Michigan baseball coach
Oeveren also racked up three hits
and three runs for the Wolverines.
With a 10-1 lead in the fifth in-
ning, Van Oeveren led off with a
triple off the wall in deep right-
centerfield. After consecutive RBI
doubles by Rodney Goble and Brian
Simmons, Michigan had a 13-1 mar-
Three batters later, leftfielder
Sean Coston smacked an RBI triple
to score Dransfeldt from second
base. Second baseman Kirk
Beermann ended the scoring, sin-
gling in Coston for a 15-1 advan-
In the fourth, first baseman Chad
Chapman led off the inning with a
home run, his third of the season,
that traveled 360 feet over the
leftfield fence. Spartan hurler Josh
Weeks' next pitch whizzed behind
But Dransfeldt cranked Weeks'
1-2 pitch over the wall in left, 15

After splitting four games with the Spartans this weekend, the Wolverines remain two games under .500 in conference play.

The Michigan softball team is roll-
ing once again. After Toledo broke
the Wolverines' 19-game win streak
April 5, Michigan ran its current streak
to six by sweeping four games from
Minnesota this weekend.
Michigan beat the Gophers, 5-0,
11-5, 2-1 and 6-4.
The Wolverines began the week-
end with a hitting explosion. After
first baseman Michelle Silver
grounded out to lead off the opening
game, the next four batters all reached
base and eventually scored.
After that mini-rally, the rest of
the game was relatively quiet. Michi-
gan didn't score again until the sixth
inning when pitcher Sara Griffin
singled in Silver.
Minnesota struggled against Grif-
fin throughout the game. The fresh-
man recorded eight strikeouts and al-
lowed only two hits en route to her
12th win of the season.

The second game produced more
of the same results. Griffin drove in
Silver to give the Wolverines a 1-0
lead after the first inning.
In the top of the third, Michigan
padded its lead when Griffin and
pitcher Kelly Kovach both scored off
of a Jessica Lang single.
However, the Gophers muscled
their way back into the game by scor-
ing four runs in the bottom of the
inning. The rally began when Kovach
beaned the second batter up, desig-
nated player Jennifer Fox. Kovach
then allowed a walk and three singles
before regaining control.
The Wolverines produced a four-
run rally of their own in the fifth inning
to regain the lead, 7-4. Michigan fol-
lowed that with a run in the sixth and
three more in the seventh.
Kovach's five strikeouts helped
her earn her 12th win of the season,
More importantly, it was her 66th
career win, making her the winningest
pitcher in Michigan history.
The Wolverines struggled in the
second doubleheader. In the first
game, Minnesota crossed the plate
first, when Rachel Nelson drove in
Jenny Lopez in the third inning.
Michigan had little success with
the bat throughout the game and en-
tered the bottom of the seventh inning
scoreless. However, following a Traci

Carr single, Lang smacked a double
to the leftfield fence, putting runners
on second and third.
Minnesota opted to intentionally
walk catcher Jennifer Smith, leaving
the bases loaded for Tracy Taylor. Tay-
lor was playing in place of team captain
Lesa Arvia who suffered a season-end-
ing leg injury against Penn State. i
"We're missing a.350 hitter," coach
Carol Hutchins said. "We miss that
.350 swing. She's got a new role now.
She keeps me calm on the bench."
However, the Gophers were unable
to capitalize on Arvia's absence. Taylor
hit a ground ball into right field, allow-
ing Carr to score the game-tying run.
Two batters later, Silversingled in Smith
with the winning run.
Kelly Holmes earned her eighth
win of the season, chalking up four
strikeouts and walking only one.
In the final game of the series,
neither team was willing to surrender
the lead, playing to a 4-4 tie at the end
of the seven regulation innings.
Michigan was hot early and led 3-0
after its first turn at bat. However, Min-
nesota quickly overcame the deficit by
scoring two runs in the bottom of the.
first inning and two more in the second.
The Wolverines tied the game with
a run in the fifth, but blew a chance to
