less expressed accurately the post-
game feeling.
"It's a shame both teams couldn't
have won. Cal played super, we just got
a couple more key hits," said Mid-
daugh.
There was added incentive for both
' teams to prevail in the early afternoon
game, as the loser would have to fight
for their tournament life just 45 minutes
later against the Clemson Tigers. To
their credit, the tired Bears survived
with a 6-4victory in the second game.
"We really felt we had to win the first
game. It is so tough to go back-to-back
in a tournament situation," said Mid-
daugh. "I'm really proud of the way our
kids played, this was our whole season
wrapped into one."

Madlock vs
NEW YORK (AP)-The suspension
of Pittsburgh's Bill Madlock was ap-
pealed to Commissioner Bowie Kuhn
yesterday, increasing the likelihood of
a showdown between the Pirates' third
baseman and the major league umpires
association later this week. .
Less than two hours after learning
that National League President Chub
Feeney had upheld Madlock's original
15-day suspension and $5,000 fine, the
major league players association ap-
pealed the ruling to Kuhn. Such an ap-
peal to the commissioner is allowed un-
der Article 10C of the major league
basic agreement.
Marvin Miller, executive director of
the players association, said he expec-
ted that Madlock would continue

hits" that the Blue coach was talking
about came in the top of the seventh
with the Bears leading 3-2. With two
outs and Schulte on second, Jim
Paciorek tattooed a 2-2 Chuck Hensley
fastball over the right-field wall. The
round-tripper began a string of six con-
secutive hits for the Michigan right-
fielder, including a double in the ninth
and a triple, double, and two singles
against Miami.
Freshman Steve Ontiveros, who was
br'ought in in the fourth to replace star-
ter Scott Dawson, fought his way
through the middle innings without
allowing a run until the resilient Bears
reclaimed the lead in the eighth.
CALIFORNIA CATCHER, Tom
Colburn led off with a single up the
middle and Kelly Wood walked. Dan
McInerny sacrificed the runners to

second and third and Jessen bounced an
Ontiveros delivery up the middle to tie
the game at four.
Middaugh had seen enough and
yanked the right-hander in favor of the
rarely-used Joe Wissing. Wissing only
faced one batter, the pesky Bear cen-
ter-fielder Lyle Brackenridge (three
for seven), but surrendered a one-run
single to relinquish the lead.
The second game-saving hit came off
the bat of All-American Foussianes,
again with two outs, when the Blue DH
tied the game in the ninth with a RBI
single. Cal again refused to be upstaged
on the next play as shortstop Rod
Booker took a relayed throw from, left-
fielder Don Driscoll and gunned down
Foussianes trying to score from first on
Paciorek's double.
Shortstop Tony Evans was the next

temporary hero when he lashed a two-
out double down the left-field line in the
tenth, scoring Hool who had doubled
and putting the Blue ahead once again.
Evans ended the inning when he was
out trying to steal home.
BUT, YOU GUESSED it, the Bears
came up with a run to tie in their half.
Mark Clinton came in to pitch for
Michigan with runners on second and
third and one out and induced Greg
Zunino to hit a bouncer to Evans. In
what proved to be the defensive play of
the game, the freshman shortstop
nailed Driscoll at the plate with a
strong throw. Now with two down, Clin-
ton was one strike away from ending
the game, but Colburn drilled an RBI
single to left.
Clinton pitched the nerve-wracking
eleventh and escaped with the win,

playing until Kuhn rules on the case. "I
don't see how you can suspend a man
whilean appeal is pending," he said.
Richie Phillips, attorney for the
major league umpires association, sent
a telegram to Pirate Manager Chuck
Tanner last weekend, threatening that
Madlock would be ejected from games
beginning Friday unless the suspension
begins by then.
The umpires associaiton is angry
over the delay in imposing the suspen-
sion and fine which resulted from
Madlock's confrontation with umpire
Gerry Crawford on May 1 in Pit-
tsburgh.
Madlock and the players association
immediately appealed the punishment
and a hearing was held in Feeney's of-

fice a week later, on May 8. Final
disposition of the case was delayed
while the, National League president
awaited an affidavit from Madlock and
a brief from the players association.
Both arrived late Friday and Feeney
announced his decision Monday.

Proving there's more to the outdoor
season than just the Big Ten and NCAA
Championships, the Michigan thinclads
rolled up another victory over the
weekend, winning the prestigious Cen-
tral Collegiate Championships in
Bowling Green, Ohio.
"We left three people home and still
won easily," said Harvey, whose team
was coming off a win in the conference
meet.

Foussianes, 3rd team
All-American honors

MONDAY IS NOT BLUE
Bastian stops Blue

By JON WELLS
specialto The Daily
OMAHA, Nebraska - The NCAA an-
nounced its 1980 All-American baseball
team Friday, and Michigan's senior co-
captain George Foussianes was named
to the third team as the designated hit-
ter.
Foussianes, who holds school career
records in home runs (19), runs batted
in (96), and hits in a single season (62),
went into the College World Series
leading the Wolverines with a .373 bat-
ting averagel.
"IT'S REALLY a great honor to be
named to the (All-American) team,"
said Foussianes, "but I'd like to really
thank my teammates and the coaches.
We've had great coaching this year,
especially Coach Middaugh."
The Wolverine co-captain passed
Rick Leach in single-season hits with
two singles in Sunday's wild eleven-.
inning victory over the Golden Bears.

His second hit was a game-saver in the
ninth inning, a two-out single to left
field that scored David Nuss from
second, tying the game at five and sen-
ding it into extra innings.
Middaugh had high praise for the 22-
year-old native of Birmingham, whose
43 RBI, 91 total bases, and six home
runs were second on the team only to
Jim Paciorek.
"I'm thrilled to death," said Mid-
daugh. "I've had him only one year, but
he's meant so much to us. With all the
talent in the country, it's quite an
honor to be singled out."
IF FOUSSIANES can couple his All-
American status with a strong World
Series performance it will certainly
help him in today's Major League
college draft. The senior did not ven-
ture a guess as to how high he would be
drafted.
"I'll just have to wait and see. Of
courseit would be nice to go in the first
few rounds."

(Continued from Page 16)
"I really didn't have my good slider
for the first couple of innings, so with
the wind behind me, I went with the fast
ball," said Bastian. "But that Paciorek,
he's one tough stick. I threw everything
at him, fastballs in, sliders away, he's
just a good stick."
Miami drew Blue blood in the first in-
ning when, with one out, Clinton walked
Mike Cutner and Jones and wild pitched
them to second and third. Matt Tyner
followed with a sharp ground ball down
the third base line that glanced off
Chuck Wagner's glove and rolled into
foul territory for a double that scored
Cutner.
Wagner again figured in a Hurricane
tally in the sixth when he fielded a
Frank Castro around ball but threw low
to Foussianes at first for an error.
Miami capitalized as Mike Pagliarulo
singled Castro to third and Alex

to right.

Middaugh, this time on the losing end
of a close battle, was soft-spoken. "It
was a well-played game, but Miami
executed better than we did in several
key situations. We broke down defen-
sively early in the game and gave away
a couple of runs. You can't do that
against a Number One-ranked team
and expect to win."
The Wolverine coach was very
pleased with Clinton's performance,
however. "Clinton just pitched super.
He has pitched our key games all
season." _
Theloss forced Michigan into its
evening confrontation with Arizona,
one loss away from elimination.
