Blue batsmen second
in Big Ten East race


The Wolverine batsmen came off
what coach Bud Middaugh termed as
"a tough weekend" to sweep yester-
day's double-header with Adrian. Mid-
daugh is referring to Michigan's series
split with Ohio State which left the
Wolverines firmly in second place in
the Big Ten East.
The Wolverine offense couldn't get on
track in the first game as the Buckeyes
downed Michigan, 6-4. The Blue nine
came back in the second game,
however, to come away with a 4-2 vic-
ON SUNDAY, the Wolverines and
Buckeyes traded victories as Michigan
took the first game, 3-2, and Ohio State
snatched the second game with a 124
laugher. The Wolverine pitching staff
seemed to collapse as starter Bill Shuta
gave up eight hits and five walks in the

second game.
The semester break was not a total
waste for the Michigan batsmen,
however, as they added a total of eight
victories to the win column since April
Michigan swept a series with Toledo
on April 20th, shelling the Rockets, 7-1
and 15-6. The Wolverines went on from
there to take three games from
Cleveland State, 4-1, 4-2, and 15-1.
Ferris State, however, posed
problems for Michigan as the Blue nine
split a twinbill with the Bulldogs. The
Wolverines struggled to win the first
game, 3-2, in eight innings. Ferris State
came back in the second game,
however, to wallop Michigan, 12-4.
Yesterday's victory over Adrian and
the wins and losses gathered over the
semester break bring Michigan's
overall record to 31-7 and 5-3 in the Big

Michigan forward Willis
"Stretch" Carter, a 6-8 freshman
from Detroit Murray-Wright, has
transferred to the University of
Detroit. At Detroit, Carter will
rejoin Don Sicko, formerly a
Wolverine basketball assistant
and now the head coach of the
With Michigan's incoming crop
of freshmen consisting of five
frontline players - Paul Jokisch,
Roy Tarpley, Robert Henderson,
Butch Wade and Richard
Rellford - Carter's already
limited playing time was not ex-
pected to increase next season.
Carter, who led Murray-Wright
to the Class A finals two years
ago while averaging 20 points and
18 rebounds per game, appeared
in all 27 games for the Wolverines
last season, averaging 3.3 points

and two rebounds a game.
"IT WAS a mutual thing bet-
ween him (Carter), Sicko and
myself," said Michigan head
coach Bill Frieder. "Considering
everything, we thought it would
