MILLS MAKES HOME RUN
Error in Ninth, Combined With
Barrage of Hits, Sews up

Displaying a complete reversal of*
form from that which has made
them an easy prey to five Western
Conference baseball teams, Purdue
gave the advance dope a mighty
kick yesterday afternoon at Ferry
fleld when the invaders let Coach
Fisher's Varsity nine down with at
The Boilermakers showed a
smooth working infield which play-
ed errorless ball throughout nine
close inni gs combined with a fac-
ulty of collecting base blows when
they meant runs, which proved to
be too much for a struggling band
of Wolverines. Until the first half
of the ninth inning the game look-
ed to be a toss-up, but in their last
turn at bat the invading club climb-
ed on Kiegler for three hits and as
many runs to sew up the game.
Kiegler Retires 17 Straight.
Up to this time Kiegler had had
the Boilermakers under good con-

hits, which combined with Myron's
wild throw to first, netted three
counters. Mills started the parade!
when he went to first on a scratch
and was advanced to third on Ca_
raway's single. Caraway stole sec-
ond on the next pitched ball, and
then VanBibber laced out his first
hit of the day, a double which
scored both Mills and Caraway.
VanBibber came in on Myron's er-
Mills, who played the best game
of the afternoon for either team,
poled out the only hit of the day
which was good' for more than two
bases when he caught one of Holtz-
man's deliveries in the fourth inn-
ing for a circuit clout. At this time
Coach Fisher sent Kiegler to the
box, and until the ninth the Wol-,
verine allowed only one man to
reach first base, Caraway getting a
walk in the fourth..
Michigan Scores in Seventh.

Both teams showed well on the
field yesterday, Purdue playing

Many of the chances which the
players accepted were of the vari-
