Scales' hit streak ends; Zahn reaches 100 wins

0

By Chris Orandstaff
Daily Sports Writer
In baseball, all streaks must end. It
took 2,632 games before Cal Ripken
hung it up, and 56 games before Joe
DiMaggio finished a game without a
hit - and yester-
day, on a some- BASEBALL
what smaller Notebook
scale, Michigan's
Bobby Scales ---------------~-
went hitless - ending an 18-game
hit streak.
"I didn't have a very good
approach at the plate today," Scales
said. "I was frustrated and I just
couldn't find my swing."
Despite yesterday's off-day at the
plate, Scales has been what a leadoff

hitter should be this season.
Scales started the season with a
12-game hit streak, which was part
of a 16 game hit streak extending to
the 1998 season, and has reached
base safely in every game this sea-
son.
The presence of such a dominate
leadoff hitter cannot be measured as
it both jump starts the team and
unsettles the oppositions pitching
from the get go.
Scales has now hit in 31 of the
team's 35 games, and in those con-
tests that he didn't get a hit he boasts
a .636 on base percentage.
Prior to yesterday's game Scales
was leading the team in batting aver-
age, hits, runs and walks.

RAGING BULLPEN: Yesterday's
game also marked the beginning of a
new streak for two young
Wolverines.
Freshman Jeff Trzos recorded the
first win of his young career, and
sophomore Nick Alexander got his
first save.
The pitching of Trzos, Alexander,
and junior Bryan Cranson keyed the
Wolverines to victory.
Starter Bobby Korecky had a
rocky start and left the game after
allowing eight runs on eight hits in
an inning-and-a-third of action.
But the Wolverine bullpen com-
pletely shut down the Eastern
Michigan attack by pitching a no-hit
shutout the for the final seven-and-
two-thirds innings.
The win was especially sweet for
Trzos, who after dominating oppo-
nents during his high school career,
has struggled to find playing time
this season. Yesterday's four innings
of action were the most he had seen

all season.
"It feels great to get the win,"
Trzos said. "Overall I don't feel like
I've pitched that great this year, so it
was nice to come out and pitch well
today."
CENTURY MARK: Michigan coach
Geoff Zahn reached a personal mile-
stone yesterday as the Wolverine
skipper notched his 100th career vic-
tory.
Zahn is currently fifth all-time
behind Ray Fisher, Bud Middaugh,
Mobey Benedict, and Bill Freehan.
In four seasons at the helm of the
Wolverines Zahn has accumulated a
100-95-1 record, and was named Big
Ten coach of the Year in 1997.
PISTILLI HONORED: Sophomore
Vince Pistilli earned Big Ten pitcher-
of-the-Week honors after Saturday's
7-4 victory.
Pistilli ended Big Ten leader Ohio
State's 14 game winning streak by
pitching well in seven innings of
complete game action.

inning.
"We have really been focusing on
our defense in practice," Conrad
said.
"We haven't been playing the way
we can, and today we came out and
played great defense and we need to
keep going."
With Michigan threatening to
mercy, Penn State was able to pro-
duce two runs on two hits to take the
game to the bottom of the fifth with
the score of 9-2.
And with the bases loaded, fresh-
man Stefanie Volpe ripped the ball
passed the infield sending the team's
10th run home, ending the game and
capturing the 10-2 win.
"We put our bat on the ball and
their pitcher wasn't fooling us,
Hutchins said. "We jumped on top of
them and put them out of their
game."
