It's important to go into a post-season with Purdue, winning the first, 15-2, and

going into the Big Ten tournament
which begins Friday in Minneapolis
"I think it was a good weekend for us
to get momentum," said Hayward, who
belted four home runs during the series.
"I think we're ready to go."
HEAD COACH Bud Middaugh was
another one who was pleased with the
weekend performance.
"I thought we played well for three
games (the first three Michigan wins).
We generated a lot of offense, and we
didn't make an error all weekend."
The Wolverines generated 37 runs
worth of offense against Purdue. In 12
previous league games this season they
had produced only 51 runs.
IN THE 15-2 first-game laugher
designated hitter Hayward and first
baseman Hal Morris slammed two
homers each. Hayward and Morris
combined to drive in eight of the 15
runs.
Gary Wayne started the game and
got the win, pitching six innings. Wayne
upped his record to 7-2. Jon Wood pit-
ched a scoreless seventh inning for
Michigan.
In the nightcap, a ten-run Purdue
second innning proved to be too much
for the Wolverines. Righty Dave
Karasinski was the victim of the
Boilermaker barage, and he took the
loss, dropping his record to 3-3. Casey
Close had a three-run homer for
Michigan.
MIDDAUGH AND the Wolverines

now turn their attention to the up-
coming Big Ten tournament. The
Wolverines will open against North-
western in a single game on Friday.
The Wildcats swept Illinois on Sunday
to finish at 9-6-1, in second place in .the
Big Ten West. Michigan State plays
West champion Minnesota on Friday
also.
The tournament is a double,
elimination round-robin. Two losses
and you're out. It is a format that Mid-
, daught is not too crazy about.
"Anything can happen in (the tour-
nament). The second place clubs have
as much of a chance to win it as the
division winners," said Middaugh,
whose Wolverines captured the tour-
nament last year by winning three
straight games.
"I think the format should be revam-
ped. I think the division winners should
play a best two-out-of-three."
Hayward pointed out that there are a
lot of unknowns facing the team.
"In the Big Ten tournament anything
can happen. It's one weekend. I don't
know how Minnesota or Northwestern
will be, I don't know what the field will
be like or what the weather will be."
Michigan may not be able to control
the field conditions or the weather, but
if the Wolverines play the type of ball
they're capable of, they will be able to
control the outcome of the tournament.
Hopefully that outcome will be the
same as last year's.
