Wolverines Start Season with Double Win over Ha

vkeyes

Iowa Collects Only Ten'
Hits in Losing, 7-0, 20-2
Bowman Hurls Three Hit Ball in Opener;
Manko, Willers Combine in Seven Hit Nightcap

By BILL MULLENDORE
With Bo Bowman hurling superb
three-hit ball in the opener and Den-
ny Manko and Al Willers combining
to limit Iowa to seven safeties in the
nightcap, Michigan opened the 1944
baseball season yesterday afternoon
by taking both ends of a double-
header from the Hawkeyes, 7-0 and
20-2.
By far the outstanding highlight of
the day was the masterful pitching of
Bowman who garnered 14 strikeouts
over the nine inning route. He was
in trouble only once when he lo ded
the bases in the eighth inning, but
struck out pitcher Herb Preul to retire
the side.
Meanwhile the Wolverine hitters
combed the offerings of Preul for
eight hits including a lusty, triple to
left-center by left fielder Bill Gregor
in the fourth. Gregor scored the first
run of the game a moment later on
Don Lund's long fly.
Manko Gets Call
Michigan added single runs in the'
fifth and sixth, and then sent over
two more in each of the eighth and
ninth innings. The scoring was aid-
ed and abetted by eight passes and
three Hawkeye errors at crucial mo-
ments. Dick Ives was called in to
retire the last man in the ninth after
Preul faltered.
The second contest saw Wolverine
coach, Ray Fisher, send Manko to
the mound in a surprise move after
announcing that Elroy Hirsch would
probably get the call. Iowa's "Wad-
dy" Davis countered with Jack Spen-
cer, -and for two innings the game
proceeded on an even basis.
Score 11 Runs in Eighth
In the bottom of the third the
Michigan batsmen junped on Spen-
cer for three runs and' from there
on in were never headed. They got
three each in the sixth and seventh
and in the eighth opened up with
an 11-run barrage which drove both
Preul and Ives, his successor, to the
showers before Allen McCord could
come in and put the fire out.
Bruce Blanchard started things off
in the big eighth with a single, and
Gregor, Lund and Elmer Swanson
followed suit, bringing in three tallies.
Nussbaumer drew a pass but was
forced' on Bob Stevenson's grounder
to second.
Manko and Blanchard both walked
and Hirsch struck out. *Lund then
singled and Swanson followed with a

lusty triple to the extremities. Nuss-I
baumer brought him home with a
base knock but Stevenson grounded
out to end the inning in which Michi-
gan tallied 11 times on only seven
hits.
Iowa found Manko for a run in
the seventh on a walk and a triple by.
Dick Woodard, his first of two during
the game. Willers took over in the
last frame for Michigan and was
promptly greeted with Woodard's
second three-bagger and a double by
catcher Jim Hansen. He retired the
side without further difficulty to end
the 20-2 rout.
The loss of the twin-bill practically
knocked Iowa out of the Big=' Ten
race, leaving them with a record of
two wins and three defeats with only
two more games scheduled. Several
of the earlier Hawkeye tilts were
rained out.
Michigan, in winning, got off to a
good start in the race and gave evi-
dence that it will be a power to be
reckoned with. Notre Dame invades

SECOND GAME

Track Squad
Departs for
Penn Relays
Wolverines, Maroons
To Represent Big Ten
In Week-End Carnival
By BILL LAMBERT
Four members of the eight-man
track squad which will represent
Michigan in the Fiftieth annual Penn
Relay Carnival, left this morning for
Philadelphia and the Franklin Field
where more than 2,000 tracksters will
be competing on the 69-event pro-
grain.
Bib Ufer, Ross and Bob Hume, and
John Purdue embarked with Coach
Ken Doherty and trainer Lyle Ben-
nett, and will be followed by Will
Glas tonight and V-12 trainees Fred
Negus, Jim Pierce, and Dick Barnard.
The distance medley team, which is
the only event the Wolverines are
running in on Fri., will be composed
of all civilians, Ufer, the Hume twins,
and Glas.
20 Service Teams To Compete
This year's meet is noticeably ef-
fected by the war, inasmuch as 20
teams will be running for various
branches of Uncle Sam's services.
Numerous midshipmen's schools
throughout the east as well as air
bases and army camps will be repre-
sented.
Michigan and Chicago are the Big
Ten entries; the south has Virginia
and Duke; the east Army, New York
University, Cornell, Columbia, Dart-
mouth, Princeton, Villanova, Temple,
Penn State, Colgate, and many others
totaling up to 40 colleges in all. Many
individual stars are entered at the
carnival among whom are lanky Bill
Hulse, the American record holder
for the outdoor mile, Don Burnham,
the crack miler from Dartmouth,
Ollie Hunter, former Notre Dame
star, now at Columbia's Midshipmen's
school, and a host of others.
Wolverines To Run Three Relays
Saturday will be the big day for
the Wolverines, and they will be toe-
ing the mark in the three events.
The four-mile relay squad, which is
definitely going to be composed of
the Hunes, Dick Barnard, and the
newcomer, John Purdue.
The two-mile quartet has only one
tentative change, that being Ufer as
the anchor man. However, with Bar-
nard being troubled by a foot injury,
Purdue may take his place with the
baton.
The mile relay foursome which ran
Fto the Conference Indoor crown in
3:23.6 will be out to add more laurels
to their collection.

Golfers Prepare for Saturday
Match with Bucks at Columbus'

WITH the weather finally giving a
halfway decent break, we took
ourselves out to the ball games yes-
terday to see Michigan in action
against Iowa, hoping to get some
indication of how the Wolverines will
fare in future Conference battles.
And we came away very pleasantly
surprised.
Michigan, according to practice
dope, was supposed to have the
hitting and fielding this season,
but the pitching was one very big
question mark. None of the hurlers
had ever started a college game
before, and one of Coach Ray
Fisher's biggest worries was as to
their reactions under Big Ten fire.
Last night he could rest a little
more peacefully.
Bo Bowman, who pitched the open-
er, looked as good as any Wolverine
hurler did at any time last year, and
put on a performance that, in our
memory, ranked behind only the
one - hitter that Mickey Fishman
pitched against Northwestern in 1942
and the vain battle that Pro Boim
fought against Great Lakes' host 'of
major leaguers the same year.
Bowman, while hanging up his
first college win, allowed only three
hits, all singles, and permitted only
one visitor to get as far as third
and two as far as second. At the
same time he struck out 14 foes,
walked only three and was behind
only a few others.
In the nightcap Denny Manko
didn't do badly by himself either.
Although hit harder than Bowman,
he was charged with only five hits
and one run, while fanning four and
walking three. Both Manko and Bow-
man are left-handers.
However, the best exhibition of
clutch pitching for the afternoon
was given by an Iowa moundsman,
Jack Spencer. It took place in the
fifth inning of the second game.
Charley Ketterer, the first man to
face Spencer in the stanza lined a
triple to right field. Then the
Hawkeye hurler proceeded to strike

out both Bruce Blanchard and Bill
Gregor, two of Michigan's hardest
hitters, and wound up the frame by
forcing Don Lund to ground out to
third baseman Bill Hokanson.
Three innings later Patrick was
shelled from the mound in Michi-
gan's 11 run uprising.
BILL GREGOR, who turned out to
be the Wolverine's top hitter for
the two games also found out how it
felt to be the goat for awhile. Gregor
opened the seventh by beating out a
hit to short, but got caught on one
of baseball's oldest gags, the hidden
ball trick. Bill Anderson, Iowa's first
sacker, kept the ball hidden in his
glove while Spencer went through
the act of getting ready to pitch.
Then when Gregor started to lead
off, Anderson calmly walked up and
tagged him out.
Gregor's chagrin wasn't eased a
bit by the fact that Don Lund fol-
lowed with a double, Elmer Swan-
son got two bases on Dick Wood-
ard's error and, after Bob Nuss-
baumer had popped out, Bob Stev-
enson, Manko and Mike Farnyk all
singled.
E VERYTHING seemed to go wrong -
for the Iowans in the last half of
the eighth inning of the second game.
Second baseman Mary Bendorf made
errors on tw'o consecutive double play
balls, the outfield was guilty of
throwing to the wrong base on more
than one occasion, and Dick Ives,
who had done a swell job of relief
hurling in the opener, couldn't seem
to find the plate after going in for
Spencer. A third Hawkeye pitcher,
Allen McCord, had to be called in,
and he finally put out the 'fire by
causing Stevenson to ground out
after 14 men had already batted in
the frame.

Wolverine linksmen, hoping to con-
tinue their string of victories, had a
long practice session yesterday after-
noon in preparation for the match
Saturday with Ohio -State at Colum-
bus.
Coach Ray Courtright has not defi-
nitely decided who will make the trip,
but he said that four or five of the
six boys who played in last Saturday's
tilt against Northwestern will be
chosen. Jack Tews, Tom Messinger,
Phil Marcellus, Paul O'Hara, John
Jenswold and Duncan Noble were the
team that faced the Wildcats and
defeated them to the tune of 13-8.
Tews and Messinger turned in the
best cards of the day with respective
scores of 77 and 79.
Buckeyes .Will Be Tough
Coutright remarked that the
Northwestern match was tough but
Ohio State is going to give the team
a lot of competition. The 1944 Buck-
eye linksters open their Conference
play against Michigan with three
veterans from the 1943 squad, sup-

ported by three inexperienced fresh-
men who carry the load in the num-
ber four spot and in the doubles.
Michigan's Schedule
Michigan's golf mentor announced
yesterday that Western Michigan has
definitely been added to the golf
schedule. The Wolverine golfers play
the Broncos on the .same trip they
play at Notre Dame, and on May 13
they will meet Ohio State and West-
ern Michigan at Ann Arbor. The best
ball matches will be played with the
Buckeyes in the morning, and all
three schools will compete for indi-
vidual honors in the afternoon. ,
BoWis Win 7th Straight
ST. LOUIS, April 26-(P)--The un-
defeated St. Louis Browns won their
seventh straight game today, beat-
ing the Cleveland Indians, 5 to 2, and
tied the American League record for
the most consecutive victories at the
start of a season.
