The afternoon's battle marked the
Wolves' First win over the stellar
left-hander from State out of 'i;
The Spartans drew first blood in
the second frame, tallying one run.
Michigan scored a counter in the
third to even matters, and the game
was all even until the seventh when
the Maize and Blue batters man-
aged to break through and score
another, augmenting it with a
third run in the eighth and a
fourth in the first half of the ninth.
In the second half of the last
inning, State pulled the traditional
rally and aanaged to score two
runs. An error by Stan Waterbor
placed a runner on first. McCann
tripled to center, scoring one run,
and he scored on a grounder by
Morse played to first. Fawcett and
Eliowitz struck out.
Tompkins was replaced on the
mound by McNeal at the beginning
of the fourth inning; McNeal scor-
ed six strike-outs in the six innings
1 he pitched. Griffin of the Spartans
was able to fan only three in the
full nine innings.
The Wolverines scored in the sec-
and when Manuel doubled, Tomp-
kins sacrificed, and Superko drove
out a single. In the seventh, Diffley
singled, and Daniels tripled for the
score. Waterbor hit, took second on
an error, and was scored by Braen-
die's double in the eighth frame. In
the final inning, Diffley singled,
Daniels sacrificed, and Wistert dou-
bled for the score.
