14-Hit Barage Enables The
Wolverines To Win Last
Game With Ease
CHAMPAIGN, Ill., May 16. - (Spe-
cial to The Daily) - The University
of Michigan's championship-bound
baseball team split a double bill here
today with Illinois to remain in a tie
for first place with Iowa which also
dropped its first Big Ten game to
Although outhit in the first game,
the fighting Illini came across with
the winning punch in the fifth in-
ning to win the tilt 3 to 2. A 14-hit
barrage by the Wolverines in the sec-
ond game enabled them to take the
night cap with ease, 9 to 3.
Michigan's two runs in the opener
came in the first inning. Rudness,
stealing second after garnering a saf-
ety from Swanson, ace of the Illinois
moundsmen, came home with the first
run of the game on Lerner's single.
Lerner advanced to third on Uricek's
single and scored when Jablonski was
called safe on the keystone sack after
an Illini error.
Illinois also scored in the first and
won the game in the fifth inning on
Dancisak's triple which scored both
Melino and Reinhart, who got on the
paths through Brewer's error. Cap-
tain Berger Larson, pitching the whole
route for the Wolverines allowed only
five hits while his teammates were
garnering eight from Swanson.
The tables were turned in the final
game when the Illini scored all three
of their runs in the first inning while
Michigan was able to push across
only one run in their half of that
stanza, Rudness scoring on Jablon-
ski's hit after he had been advanced
on the bases by Uricek's single. Kre-
mer scored for the Wolverines in the
second on Heyliger's single and the
score was tied up in the third when
another Michigan run was pushed
across the home plate.
Rudness sacrificed Fishman, who
allowed only four hits in the seven
innings that he worked, to second,
and the Wolverine left hander then
scored on Brewer's hit in the fifth
inning to put the Illini at a one run
disadvantage. a
A five run hitting spree in the
eighth stanza put the game on ice for
Coach Ray Fisher's men, who added
one more run in the ninth just for
good measure. Uricek opened the
eighth with a triple and scored imme-
diately as Jablonski duplicated his
Lerner followed with a double that
scored the Wolverine catcher, and
then scored himself on a fielder's
choice after he had advanced to third
on a wild throw by the Illinois catcher.
Berg then surrendered the mound to
Cherry who in turn abdicated in fa-
vor of Sainti when Nichelwicz went
to bat for the second Illini pitcher
in the ninth inning. Lanky John
Gee pitched the first two innings for
the Wolverines, allowing four hits
in the time that he worked. Fishman
