Hot Wolverine hitters
vanquish Titans, 22-12
By Jim Rose
Daily Sports Writer
It's not often that you score 12 runs in a baseball
It's even less often that you score 12 runs in a
baseball game - and lose by double-digits.
That's what happened to Detroit, though, in
yesterday's nonconference game with Michigan.
Michigan made a mockery ofthe Titans, cruising
to a 22-12 win at the Campbell Complex in Detroit.
The game, originally scheduled for nine innings,
was called when the Wolverines held a 10-run lead
after the seventh.
Michigan coach Geoff Zahn probably would've
played a lot of people regardless.
Even if his Wolverines hadn't scored 11 runs in
the first inning.
Michigan (9-3 Big Ten, 14-16 overall) has won
13 of its last 16 games. Detroit fell to 14-10.
The Wolverines were able
to use the blowout to play 16 Next

was the extent of his success. Northwestern is
The Wolverines loaded the 5-
bases on a pair of singles and
a pair of walks, and then Gorak completely folded.
The senior forced in three runs by hitting two
batters and walking another.
The final book on Gorak: one-third of an inning
pitched, three walks, two hit-batsmen, seven earned
runs and a sigh of relief when he finally got taken
out of the game.
His replacement, Dean Rovinelli, didn't fare any
better. An error scored a run but kept the bases full,
until Cervenak cleared them with a three-run double.
Three batters later, Michigan's Kelly Dransfeldt
collected his second hit of the inning, blasting a
three-run homer - his sixth - off the scoreboard
In the first inning, Dransfeldt was 2-for-2 with a
homer, a single, two runs and three RBI.
To their credit, the Titans didn't exactly lie down
and quit. They roughed up Michigan starter Luke
Bonner for four first-inning runs. The freshman
had control trouble, walking four and hitting two in
three innings. He did manage to pick up his first
collegiate win, however.
Mike Hribernik, Chris Hesse and Mario Garza Jr.
also saw action on the mound for the Wolverines.
When it was all said and done, Michigan's of-
fense reigned supreme. Dransfeldt and Kirk
Beerman had three hits apiece, and the Besco twins
combined to go 3-for-7 with five runs and six RBI.
Bobby Scales and Jason Alcaraz each reached base
five times, and neither one would make the press
TheWolverines travel to Evanston this weekend
for a four-game series with Northwestern. The
Wildcats are 5-3 in the Big Ten and are led by
junior leftfielder Mike Stritch, who is hittinge380
with eight round-trippers.
Stritch isjust one member of a potent Northwest-
ern offense, though. Eleven Wildcats are above
.300 for the season - six of them .345 or better.
Michigan will need a strong weekend to stay
ahead of the rest ofthe league. Illinois is just a half-
game back at 8-3, and Penn State is 7-4.
otal in yesterday's romps of the Rockets.
That turned the game."
Two outs later, a wild pitch by Rockets pitcher Desiree
Abrego (8-10) moved the runners to second and third.
Traci Conrad singled Smith home and advanced to sec-
ond on the cut-off throw.
With first-base open, two runners on and two out, some
managers would have elected to give one of the Wolver-
ines' best hitters, Sara Griffin, a free pass to first to set up
a force play at any base.
But Toledo elected to pitch to Griffin, who proceeded
to rip a double to center field, driving in two runs.
The Wolverines notched two more runs in the fifth
when Conrad grounded to second with the bases loaded
