Michigan trails Arizona

By JON WELLS
Specialto TheDaily
CHOKE CITY, Neb.-The Michigan
baseball team, losers to Miami (Fla.),
3-2, yesterday, trailed Arizona 7-0 in the
seventh inning last night at the College
World Series here.
Since two defeats means elimination
from the tournament, a Wolverine loss
would bring the team home to Ann Ar-
bor.
The Wildcats jumped on freshman
righthander Scott Dawson for three
runs in both the third and fourth in-
nings, the last bunch coming on Terry
Francona's three-run home run well
beyond the 370-foot mark in left center-
field.
Arizona's first two runs came on a
two-run, bases-loaded single by Scott
Stanley after coach Bud Middaugh had

....

'M' down 7-0
after the seventh

called for intentional walks following a
single by Dwight Taylor. The third run
came home on an infield out.
Tim Karazim came on in the fifth,
replacing Dawson, and surrendered
another run to the Wildcats in the sixth
inning, on a triple by Terry Francona, a
hit batsman, and a double steal.
Arizona pitcher Craig Lefferts
cruised through the first six innings,
allowing only one hit and pitching to the
minimum 18 batters.
The only Michigan hits came off the

bats of Jim Paciorek in the second in-
ning and George Foussianes in the
seventh. Combined with his walk in the
fifth inning, the Blue rightfielder has
not been retired in his last nine at-bats.
In other action yesterday John,
McInerny hit a three-run homer in the
sixth inning to lead California to an 8-5
victory over St. John's N.Y.
The loss eliminted St. John's from the
tournament. The Redmen won their
opener against Arizona but dropped
their second game against Hawaii.
California took an early five-run lead

in the game with two runs in the first
inning, two in the third and one in the
fifth. St. John's cut the lead to one run
in the top of the sixth with four singles,
two walks and a balk.
With one out in the bottom of the six-
th, California's Kelly Wood singled. One
out later, Bruce Johnson singled.
Mcnery, who was hitless in seven at
bats for the series, then emptied the
bases with his homer to right field.
Sebby Borriello had two hits and two
RBI's for St. John's, while Steve Scafa
added a triple. The 11th ranked Red-
men ended the season at 30-11. Third-
ranke~d California upped its record to
43-22-1.
Chuck Cary, 4-1, picked up the win
while Glenn Newton recorded the save.
Chris Rich, 4-3, absorbed the loss.
Miami downs
'M, 3-2
BY JON WELLS
Special to The Daily.
After using five pitchers in the extra
inning marathon on Sunday, prospects
looked dim .yesterday when the
Wolverines squared off against the
heavy-hitting, Number One-ranked
Hurricanes from Miami.
What ensued, however, was a
tenacious pitching duel between
Michigan's Mark Clinton, the winning
pitcher Sunday, and Miami's sizzling
right-hander Bob Bastian that slipped
the Wolverines into the loser's bracket,
3-2.
Miami picked up a run in the first,
sixth, and what proved to be the winner
in the seventh, when the Hurricanes'
fleet-footed second baseman Paul Hun-
dhammer singled, stole second, stole
third, and trotted home on Ross Jones'
deep fly to right.
Trailing 3-0 heading into their half of
the seventh, Michigan's Cardiac Kids
stormed back to within one run on the
power of Jim Paciorek's flaming bat.
Bastian (15-3), who had tamed all the
Blue bats except those belonging to
Paciorek (single and double) and
Jacobson (single) through the first six
innings, opened the inning with a walk
to Foussianes. Paciorek then laced his
fifth consecutive series hit to the gap in
right-center for a triple and a run. Hool
brought in Paciorek with a slow ground
ball to Jones, the Miami shortstop.
With two out in the bottom of the nin-
th, the big right fielder once again came
through, this time with his fourth hit of
the game, a line single to right. But
another come-from-behind Wolverine
victory was not in the cards as Jones
snagged a Hool shot to his right and for-
ced Paciorek at second to end the
game.
Aside from Paciorek, Bastian was
virtually untouched by the Michigan
lineup, as he allowed only five hits,
struck out eight, walked one, and went
the distance.

Sunday: Michigan takes Cal, 9-8

Special to The Daiy
OMAHA-Michigan's World Series opener on Sunday
belied its first round status, as the Wolverines bit, clawed,
and .scrapped their way to a 9-8, heart-stopping victory in 11
innings over the third-ranked California Golden Bears.
Paciorek and Evans, and Rob Jessen for California all
came through with what seemed to be game-winning hits, but
only Hool's sharp three-run double, just beyound the out-
stretched glove of the diving Bears' left-fielder, in the top of
the eleventh, was genuine.
HOOL, THE TEAM'S MVP as well as the MVP in the
Mideast Regionals, displayed his clutch bat with two out, two'
strikes, and the bases loaded. After looking tentative on two

Glenn Newton curve balls, the big Blue backstop stung his
game-winning hit.
"I was quite anxious up there," said Hool. "I looked kind
of foolish on the first two pitches, but I knew a curve was
coming so I just waited on it. I was fortunte to get one up (in
the strike zone)."
True to the nature of the game, California stormed back in
their half of the eleventh with a two-run rally that saw
Paciorek flag down the final out with the tying run on base.
TO SAY THE GAME WAS hard-fought would be an under-
statement. The lead changed hands five times, twice in the
fourth, and once in the seventh, eighth, and tenth. After the
four-hour-and-fifteen-minute World Series marathon, a
weary Middaugh's first words were cliche, but never'the
