year is approached differently."
But this year is already starting to
look like the last two as far as prob-
lems go. Sophomore forward Albert
White, who was brilliant at times past
season, has been suspended for the
first semester due to an unspecified
team policy violation.
Still, the Wolverines have the
potential for an excellent season.
"If everything holds true to form,
and that includes staying healthy, this
is a team that should have some lofty
expectations," Fisher said,. "I would
say we feel we're anticipating a suc-
cessful season. What that means as
far as wins and losses, I don't know."
Don't let that fool you.
The Wolverines have certain expec-
They know there's pressure to avoid
another double-digit loss season.
They also know they have the ability
to win the Big Ten for the first time
since 1986 and reach the Final Four
for the fourth time in the past nine-
"We know we have a good team,"
Taylor said. "It's just about putting

Spartans stick Blue
field hockey with loss
By Richard Shin
Daily Sports \Writer
The Michigan field hockey team
traveled to East Lansing yesterday,
entertaining thoughts of a season
sweep over No. 14 Michigan State.
Instead, the Spartans (2-4 Big Ten, I I-
5 overall) handed the Wolverines (1-5,
6-7) a 4-3 loss and salvaged a series
Michigan played a solid first half,
holding the Spartans to a single goal,
while Michigan attackers Lindsay
Babbitt and Michelle Smulders scored
back-to-back goals to forge a 2-1 lead.
The Michigan defense was able to
stifle Michigan State's leading goal
scorer, junior Rayna Hiscox, who went
scoreless in the first frame.
In the last 20 minutes of the match,
the Wolverines also played suffocating
defense, shutting out the Spartans
while adding a goal of their own.
"We played really well in the first
half," Smulders said. "We also played
great the last 20 minutes of the match."
Unfortunately for the Wolverines,
the 15 minutes in between did not go
In those 15 minutes, the Spartans
were able to mount an offensive attack
that the Wolverines could not stop,
racking up three straight goals, includ-
ing a penalty stroke by Hiscox, to take
a 4-2 lead.
It was a lead that the Wolverines
could not overcome.
- "We had mental lapses," Michigan
attacker Julie Flachs said. "(The
Spartans) got the momentum and cape
italized on their chances.
"We played really well, and at timW
we were awesome, but the mental laps-
es cost us."
Michigan State started the scoring
in the match midway through the first
period on a goal by senior Angela
Diiames. The Wolverines quickly
answered with two goals in five min-
In the second period, Hiscox scored
two consecutive, unassisted goals in a
span of seven minutes to push *
Spartans ahead, 3-2. DiJames added
her second goal of the day for the-
Spartans exactly one minute after
Hiscox's final goal to put the match
out of the Wolverines' reach...
Smulders added a final goal for
Michigan with under nine minutes left,
but the Wolverines could not manage a
game-tying goal in the closing min-
"We need to play for the full
minutes:' Smulders said. "We've
proven we can play beautiful hockey,
and we know we can stay in the gamy
"But we have to stay focused men,
tally for all 70 minutes."
Senior co-captain Meredith Franden and the Michigan field hockey team lost, 4-3,
to Michigan State yesterday. The two teams split their season series for the sec-
ond consecutive season. Michigan is now 1-5 in the conference and 6-7 overall.

Braves trounce Yankees in Series opener
NEW YORK (AlP) - The Atlanta
Braves showed the New York Yankees
that what they saw on TV was no fluke.
Nineteen-year-old Andruw Jones
homered twice and drove in five runs as
John Smoltz and the Braves sent the
Yankees to their worst World Series loss
ever, 12-1, last night in Game 1.
The Braves brutalized New York the
same way they humbled St. Louis in
winning the National League playoffs.
The Yankees had a week off to watch
Atlanta outscore the Cardinals, 32-1, in
the last three games.
And now they know the defending
champions are just as potent in person
-despite a one-day rain delay, a three-
hour traffic jam and jeering Yankees
Jones hit a two-run homer off Andy
Pettitte in the second inning, then lined
a three-run shot off Brian Boehringer in
the third that made it 8-0. By then
Yankees fans, who had waited 15 years
for the Series, were already silent.
Game 2 will be tonight. Greg
Maddux, moved up a day because of the
rain, will start for Atlanta against
On a day when the Yankees hoped to
recapture some of their glory with their
first Series appearance since 1981, Jones
stuck it to them. By the sixth inning, with
Atlanta ahead, 12-1, and a light rain
falling, many of the 56,365 fans had left.
Jones, who began the season as a
member of the Class A Durham Bulls,
became the youngest player to homer in
the Series. He was a year younger than
Mickey Mantle, who would have turned
65 yesterday. Jones also was the first
player to homer in his first two Series at-
bats since Oakland's Gene Tenace in
1972. He was the first player to hit two
homers in a game since Philadelphia's
Lenny Dykstra in 1993.
Smoltz, meanwhile, was holding the
Yankees hitless until Wade Boggs' RBI
double with two outs in the fifth.
Smoltz improved to 4-0 in the pos
season this year and 9-1 overall in 17
career starts in the postseason. The major-
league leader in wins and strikeouts this
year, he left after six easy innings of two-
Fred McGriff lined a home run off the
foul pole in the fifth, and Jones started a
three-run sixth with an infield hit, an odd
play in which his bat broke and the bar-
rel tangled up Boggs at third base.
Later in the inning, Marquis Grissom
and Mark Lemke hit RBI singles and
Chipper Jones had a sacrifice fly.
While routs were nothing new to the
Braves - they routed St. Louis, 14-0, in
Game 5 and won, 15-0, in Game 7 --the
Yankees were not so used to such beat-
The Yankees had played 186 previous
games in World Series, most in history,
but had never lost by more than eigy
