Baseball splits four-game series with Illinois

By David Horn
Daily Sports Editor
As the Major Leaguers begin to get into the swing of
their season, Big Ten baseball teams can see the end of
their year coming quickly. The Wolverines (8-8 Big Ten,
22-18 overall), who entered the weekend in fifth place in
3 the Big Ten, could also see Illinois (10-13, 23-25) nipping
at their heels, just two spots behind them. The Illini hard-
ly narrowed the gap, splitting two games over the week-
end at Fisher Stadium, but Michigan did not help its own
cause after a promising beginning, as it dropped the final
two games of the series after two exciting comeback
Swins.
Michigan had a difficult time at the plate yesterday,
managing just one run on four hits in the 5-1 loss. Rich
Hill was credited with the loss, despite striking out seven
and relinquishing just three runs in seven innings of work.
Saturday's first game gave thirdbaseman Brock Koman
his second chance for heroics in as many games. The
sophomore's grand slam in the bottom of the sixth gave
Michigan a 5-4 lead. The home team went on to win 7-5.
The nightcap of Saturday's doubleheader featured an
interesting reunion - Michigan pitcher Bobby Wood, a
right-hander from Englewood, Colo., took the mound
against the Illini, whose cleanup hitter, junior thirdbase-
man Luke Simmons, is also from Englewood. The two
DAVID HORN/Daily players, as well as Michigan sophomore Jordan
Michigan sophomore Rich Hill took the loss Cantalamessa, led Cherry Creek High School to multiple
against Illinois in yesterday's 5-1 defeat. Colorado state championships.

Simmons was 2-for-3, and scored one run in the 3-2
Illini win.
"I knew how to throw him in high school," Wood said.
"But he's changed a little bit, so that was kind of tough."
In the top of the seventh, Simmons was intentionally
walked by his former high school teammate.
"Coach came out to talk to me about it and said,'What
do you want to do?' Wood said. "And I was like, 'I want
to throw against this guy, because we have a little rivalry
going on.' "
But the walk was given, and Wood went on to retire the
side.
"It's just fun to see him again," Simmons said.
"Friendships pick back up, and it's fun to compete against
them, too."
Friday's game was the most exciting for the home team.
Three runs in the bottom of the ninth sent the 6-6 game
into an extra frame. In the top of the tenth, senior Nick
Alexander allowed four runs in relief. Down 10-6 in the
bottom of the tenth, Michigan crawled back. After a Nate
Wright strikeout, Gino Lollio walked. Jake Fox was hit by
a pitch, advancing Lollio. Blake Rutkowski was walked
to load the bases. After a pitching change, Caltalamessa
was hit by a pitch, allowing Lollio to score. Singles by
Bill LaRosa, Brandon Jominy, Mike Sokol and Brock
Koman earned the Wolverines all the runs they would
need for an exciting 11-10 comeback win. Koman had
also homered in the sixth to drive in two runs.
"A game like that doesn't come around too often,"
Michigan coach Geoff Zahn said.

Rusty bats need workout

Tracking Wolverines

By Kristen Fidh
Daily Sports Writer
During the Michigan softball team's
doubleheader against Northwestern
Friday, the announcer reported scores
from around the Big Ten. Usually, the
crowd would cheer upon hearing that
intrastate rival Michigan State had been
shutout by Iowa 4-0, but the crowd
groaned instead.
Parents and fans in the bleachers
knew Michigan was sitting atop the Big
Ten, and No. 15 Iowa was the only team
that could threaten its position.
This past weekend, the Hawkeyes
stripped away No. 21 Michigan's place
atop the conference standings, winning
both games 1-0.
Iowa got off to a quick start in the first
inning yesterday as Michigan firstbase-
man Marissa Young mishandled Katy
Jendrzejewski's grounder, allowing
Kristen Johnson to score the game's only
run.
Typically, energetic cheers ceaselessly
come from the Michigan dugout. Butthe
Wolverines were strikingly silent, until
what looked like the play of the day in
the bottom of the third inning.
Jendrzejewski slapped a grounder that
made its way past both Young and
Kelsey Kollen. Melissa Taylor picked
the ball up from right field and threw it
to third base, where Stefanie Volpe
tagged Liz Dennis for the third out.
The team cheered, but Michigan
coach Carol Hutchins was not pleased.
"It was a mistake --it could have cost
us big;" Hutchins said. "(Taylor) is our
senior captain, and she should know
that, around third base, you are conserv-
ative in that situation."
For the first three innings, Hawkeye
pitcher Sarah Thomson retired the side
1-2-3. But as soon as she allowed a sin-
gle to Taylor, Kristi Hanks took her

place.
Hanks "came in when (Michigan) had
gotten their leadoff on, and we felt that
they would start to make a few adjust-
ments the second time through the line-
up;' Iowa coach Gale Belvins said. "We
felt that Hanks is harder to bunt off of."
The first batter Hanks faced, Monica
Schock, grounded to second. But the
ball was picked up, thrown to first for
the out and thrown to third to tag Taylor
for the unlikely double play.
Michigan had an opportunity to tie in
the final frame with two outs when Mary
Connor was on second and Lisa Mack
was on first. Chrissy Garza stepped up to
bat but grounded out, ending the game.
Saturday's contest against the
Hawkeyes was also a 1-0 game. Young
allowed the game-winning run on a two-
out single by Iowa designated player
Jessica Bashor.
Despite foreshadowing Michigan's
Hawkeye troubles on Friday, the crowd
had something to cheer about as the
Wolverines won both games against
Northwestern 6-0 and 5-1.
The first match saw Melinda
Moulden hit her sixth homerun of the
season to give Michigan a 1-0 lead in the
second inning.
Then, in the bottom of the sixth, the
Wolverines scored five more runs.
Michigan, in the second match,
scored one run in the first inning, three
in the fifth and a fifth in the seventh. It
allowed Northwesternjust one runin the
sixth on a dropped pop fly to third base.
"In both games we had a big inning,"
Hutchins said. "When you're on defense
you don't want to give them a big
inning."
Hutchins' unused advice accounts for
Michigan's losses to Iowa - words the
Wolverines will have to take seriously if
they hope to regain the Big Ten's top spot
in weeks to come.

Here's a quick glance at what's
happened to some former and cur-
rent Michigan players since The
Michigan Daily's last issue:
BLUE DREW
Former Michigan quarterback Drew
Henson, who left the football team to
pursue a career in Major League
Baseball, broke his wrist after being hit
by a pitch on April 19. The game was
supposed to be his last before moving
from class-A to Triple A in Columbus In
the New York Yankees' organization.
Henson took in Michigan's doublehead-
er against Illinois last Saturday in Ann
Arbor. He commented on the quarter-
back situation made by his departure

saying: "I don't know anything about
(incoming transfer Spencer Brinton) but
I've been with John (Navarre) for the
three years and he's going to be a
great quarterback. The only thing he
needs is experience." Henson said he is
still planning to graduate on time.
A.C. IN THE HALL
Former Michigan wide receiver Anthony
Carter joined 22 other wolverines in the
College Football Hall of Fame after his
induction was announced April 19.
Carter, a three-time All American,
played for Michigan from 1979-1982.
He holds the all-time records for
Michigan in receptions and touch-
downs.
Top RATING
Freshman Mike Komisarek of the
Michigan hockey team was rated by the
central Scouting Bureau this past
Tuesday as the top collegian in the NHL
Entry Draft. The 6-foot-4 defenseman is
also ranked as the fourth highest player
from North America. This past season,
Komisarek tallied 16 points, 12 of
those assists, and ended with a plus-

A PPHOTO minus of 17.
