Nine Comes Up


Whip Irish in Ninth by 5-4

Gregor Drives in Left With Bases Loaded;
Hirsch Wins in First Start for Michigan

I " T -yak lr

Bill Gregor's drive into left with
the bases loaded and none out in the
ninth brought the winning run across
the plate in a Frank Merriwell finish
yesterday as Michigan outpitched,
outhit and outfought the Notre Dame
nine to walk off with a 5-4 decision.
Righthander Elroy Hirsch made
his first collegiate start on the mound
for the Wolverines, and after getting
off to a shaky start in the first three
innings as a result of some loose
fielding by his mates, settled down
to pitch six scoreless frames and get
credit for the win. Bill Martin was
the losing Notre Dame hurler.
Ninth Inning Score Was 4-3
Michigan went into the ninth in-
ning on the short end of a 4-3 score,
after fighting back to make up all
but one run of a three-run deficit in-
curred early in the game. Hirsch
led off the frame with a single to
right and stole second. Mike Farnyk
then hit a slow bounder to third and
was safe when third baseman Ken
Manarik booted the ball.
With first and 'second occupied,
Charlie Ketterer came up to sacrifice
and fouled off the first two pitches
attempting to bunt. He then hit nine
foul balls off Martin's :delivery and
finnaly drew a pass, loading the
sacks. Shortstop Bruce. Blanchard
came up with the tying run on third,
worked the count to three and two,
fouled off four pitches, and was then
hit in the back, forcingin the tying
Farnyk Homes in with Winning Run
With the sacks still jammed, Gre-
gor stepped up and teed off on the
first pitch, driving it far over the
left fielder's head, sending Farnyk
across with the winning run.
Notre Dame jumped into a four-run
lead in the first three innings, getting
single markers in the first and second
and adding a pair in the third. Only
two of these runs were earned, the
others resulting from errors by the

er scoring until the ninth when Gre- Notters M eet
gor's timely blow broke up the game. TmS

Hirsch Gave Up only Seven Hits
In gaining his first victory, Hirsch
gave up only seven hits and twoi
earned runs against one of the Mid-
West's hardest hitting nines. His
control was ragged in spots as he
issued five passes, hit one batsman
and uncorked a wild pitch. He bore
down in the clutch several times to
retire the side with men on bases.I
Blanchard, Gregor and Hirsch were
the hitting starts of the game for the'
Wolverines. Blanchard contributed
three singles to the ten-hit attack,
while Gregor antd Hirsch got two
each. Julius Rykovich and Balbierz
got two safeties apiece for the Irish.
The game was disrupted in the
early innings by repeated protests{
from the Michigan bench that Martin
was committing balks. Plate umpire,
Longden finally called one on him,
and the action continued.

usually reliable Blanchard and catch-

Bob Reither, Irish first sacker, pro-

right field line in the third.
In the bottom of the third stanza,
Hirsch led off with a triple to deep
center but was left stranded when
the next two hitters tapped weakly
back to the pitcher.
Stevenson Triples in Fifth
In the fifth, Stevenson Tripled to
left and came home when Notre Dame
second baseman Dick Balbierz muffed;
Farnyk's grounder. The next inning
saw Michigan narrow the count to
4-3 when Martin loaded the bases on
two singles and a walk. Another pass
and a long fly accounted for the

Pointing for two Conference wins
this week-end, Michigan's net team
playing in Chicago, takes on squads
from Minnesota and Chicago, the
Gopher match beginning at 2:15
p.m. today.
Maize and Blue teams in the past
have taken the count of both the
Gopher and Maroon squads a dis-
proportionate number of times. Chi-
cago net squads have met varsity
teams 27 times since the first match
in 1901, when a well-balanced Ma-
roon crew defeated Michigan, 4-2.
Minnesota has only come up against
varsity competition 15 times, since
tennis matches with the Gophers be-
gan in 1920 when a Michigan team
chalked up a'2-1 victory.
Balanced Team To Play
Coach LeRoy Weir is starting what
should be a comparatively well-bal-
anced team. All the positions have
been determined by a system of in-
tra-squad matches, so he should have
( at his command the best materials
Starting in the number six singles
position is Merle Gulic, who will see
his first singles action of the season.
Gulic was named to the sixth spot
after defeating Roy Boucher who held
that slot in last week's contest with
Western Michigan.
Post To Play in Fifth Spot
The fifth position will be held by
Dave Post, who handily won his
match last week, and Bill Ford, sen-
sational freshman netter will hold
down the fourth place. The number
three and two positions have been
reversed since last week-end, with
Roger Lewis now playing third, while
Jim Froelich. powerful newcomer to
the squad will play number two, by
virtue of a victory over Lewis. Jinx
Johnson, agile veteran of last year's
team, will again be spotlighted in the
top position.
Froelich and Lewis will team to-
gether in the first doubles match,.
while Johnson and Ford, and Gulic
and Boucher will handle the other
two doubles matches.
Friday's Major
League Results
CHICAGO, April 28.-(A')- Cin-
cinnati's Reds continued their low-
scoring but winning ways today by
defeating Pittsburgh, 2-0, behind big
Ed Heusser's seven-hit hurling, to
move into a second place tie with the
idle St. Louis Cardinals.
CHICAGO, April 28.-(P)-The St.
Louis Browns tied a modern major
league record today when they de-
feated the Chicago White Sox, 3 to 1,
for their ninth successive victory
since the start of the season.
The Browns tied the record held
jointly by the New York Giants of
1918 and the Brooklyn Dodgers of
By stopping the White Sox with a
four-hit performance, Jack Kramer
won his third triumph of the season
and his second against the Chicago
team. Kramer won a pitchers' duel
from Bill Dietrich, who gave up seven
hits in the eight innings he worked.
BOSTON, April 28.- ()- The
Philadelpha Athletics shattered a 5-5
deadlock in the 16th inning today
as "Woody" Wheaton singled with
the bases loaded to drive home two
runs for a 7-5 triumph over the Bos-
ton Red Sox.

DETROIT, April 28.-(IP)- The
Detroit Tigers, who are reasonably
successful on the road, dropped theirj
fourth successive home game today
by bowing 2 to 1 in the opener of a
four-game series with the Clevelandj
Indians. I
Detroit out-hit the Indians, 10 to 6,1
but 34-year-old Mel Harder, whoseI
goal is 200 American League pitching
victories, left 11 Tigers stranded as
he marked up his 198th triumph.
Meanwhile, Paul (Dizzy) Trout suf-
fered his second 2 to 1 defeat against
one victory.
All the scoring was confined to the
first and third innings. Russ Peters
doubled in the first and third for
Cleveland and was driven in each
time by Mike Rocco. Trout tripled in
the third and scored Detrot's lone
run on second baseman Eddie (Red)
Borom's infield out.
As it turned out, the game's only
error, a wild throw by Trout, gave
the Indians their winning margin.
Peters opened the game with a double
to left and took third when Trout's
throw trying to trap Peters off sec-
ind sailed into center field. Peters
scored on Rocco's fly.
