Hitters go coldi

Lack of offense plagued the Michi-
gan baseball team yesterday, as it lost
for the 28th time this year.
The Wolverines (17-28) fell to
Western Michigan (26-16), 6-0, at
Fisher Stadium. The game, originally
scheduled at Western, was moved to
Ann Arbor due to poor field conditions
in Kalamazoo.
Three Bronco pitchers kept the
Wolverine hitters at bay all afternoon.
StarterKevinGorlewski (3-0) gave up
just two hits in four innings to earn the
victory. Don Beyer and Ken Raines
also kept Michigan guessing at the
plate.
"That wasn't their best pitcher out
there," Michigan coach Bill Freehan
said. "We hit the ball much better over
the weekend (at Ohio State)."
Meanwhile, the Broncos scored
single runs in the first and sixth innings
before erupting for four runs in the last
two innings. Chris Newton (2-1) suf-
fered the loss despite giving up only
three hits and striking out a career-high
eight batters.
Newton fanned the last six batters
that he faced.
"I knew I got a couple in a row,"
Newton said. "I wasn't aware of my
career high.
"I just wanted to go out there and
throw some strikes and try to get a

couple of guys out and keep our teamin
the ballgame."
Western touched Newton for a run
in the ftrst that was set up by a walk, a
sacrifice bunt and a groundout. Todd
Staehle tripled home therunto give the
Broncos a 1-0 lead.
Dave Elliot hita leadoff homer off
of reliever Bryan Santo in the sixth for
the second run. Elliot, the number three
hitter in the lineup, and Staehle, the
cleanup hitter, led the Western offen-
sive attack. Staehle knocked in three
runs forthe Broncos. Elliot went3-for-
4 and scored three runs.
Three singles and a walk in the
eighth inning off of Mark Temple re-
sulted in two more runs. John Arvai
came on to get the last two btters to
retire the side.
The fifth Michigan pitcher, Todd
Marion, gave up the final two runs in
the ninth.
The only bright spots at the plate for
the Wolverines were Nate Holdren and
Scott Weaver. Holdren went 2-for-4
with a double and Weaver hit 3-for-4
with a double.
Newton's pitching performance put
him in the running for the starting spot
that has opened with the loss of Ron
Hollis. A blood clot in the right leg has
hospitalized Hollis.
"It's very serious and we hope it
works out for him," Freehan said of
Hollis' condition.

Another member of the Michigan
softball team joined the ranks of the
infamous "200 Club" as the Wolver-
ines improved to a 33-9 overall record
by sweeping a doubleheader over De-
troit-Mercy, 4-2 and 3-1.
Senior pitcher Kelly Forbis de-
livered the 200th strikeout of her col-
legiatecareeryesterdayinthefirstgame
of the doubleheader. She is the fifth
player in Michigan history to reach the
200strikeoutplateau.Lastweeksopho-
more pitcher Kelly Kovach achieved
the same distinction.
Forbis earned her 20th season vic-
tory, making her the third Michigan
pitcher ever to accomplish such a feat.

She carries a 1.25 ERA.
"It feels pretty good to have gotten
(my20th victory)before my eligibility
is over," Forbis said. "But I'm always
shooting higher."
Michigan led 3-0 through the first
four innings of the game. Senior Patti
Benedict led the Wolverines with two
hits and threeruns batted in. In the fifth
inning,DetroitMercy scored twonrns,
cutting Michigan's lead to one.
"We threw a few pitches that we
shouldn'thave thrown, and they ended
up hitting them," Forbis said.
However, the Wolverines held on
for the triumph, scoring one more run
in the top of the sixth.
"I think the team played well,"
Forbis said. "There were no errors."

In the second game, Kovach was
the winning pitcher, racking up nine
strikeouts, tying her single-game best.
All three of Michigan's runs came in
the bottom of the sixth. Benedict again
led the offense, this time with two hits
and one RBI. Benedict is now only four
hits away from topping Michigan's
All-American Jenny Allard (227 hits)
on the Michigan career hits list. If she
passes Allard, she will become
Michigan's No. 2 all-time hitter.
Despite all the recordand potential
record breaking going on, the Michi-
gan softball team still remembers what
it takes to win games.
"Being relaxed and playing the
gamethewayit'ssupposedtobeplayed
(is the key to victory)," Forbis said.
