Hirsch Hurls One-Hitter
To Whitewash Buckeyes
Michigan Attack Throttled Until Eighth Inning;
Blanchard Stars at Plate with Three Hits
BY BILL MULLENDORE
Yesterday was "Elroy Hirsch Day", where Michigan athletics were
concerned, as the prospective four-letter winner first turned in a winning
leap of 24 ft., 2% in., in the broad jump, during the triangular track meet,
and then hurriedly changed into his baseball togs to pitch the baseball
team to a 5-0 shutout win over Ohio State, while limiting the Bucks to
one hit.
Hirsch' masterful performance on the mound gave him his third vic-
tory of the season against no defeats and established him as one of the
leading hurlers in the Western Cnn -

ference. Ohio's only safety was a
single to right by third baseman, Don
Grate, with two down in the first in-
ning.
Buckeye pitcher, Don Maxa,
pitched on even terms with Hirsch
for seven innings, giving up one
unearned run in the fifth, and
taming the Wolverine hitters into
almost complete submission. How-
ever, in the eighth, Michigan fi-
nally found the range to drive
across four runs on five hits, three
of them extra-base blows.
First Run Is 'Unearned
The Wolverines tallied their run in
the fifth stanza without the benefit
of a hit, as right fielder, Bob Nuss-
baumer opened the inning with a
walk, was sacrificed to second on
catcher Bob Stevenson's perfect
bunt, and came all the way home
while the Ohio State infield was try-
ing to complete a double play on
Mike Farnyk's smash.
Farnyk led off the big eighth with
a single to center and was moved
down to second on Charlie Ketterer's
sacrifice. Shortstop Bruce Blanch-
ard then got his third hit of the
day, slicing a double down the left
field line to drive in Farnyk. Af-
ter Bill Gregor lifted an easy fly to
left, center-fielder Don Lund,
dropped a Texas League two-bag-
ger into left center, sending' in
Blanchard with the second tally.
Swanson Blasts a Triple
First baseman Elmer Swanson then
steped, up and laced a terrific line
drive drive down the third base line
and slid safely into third with a triple,
scoring Lund. Nussbaumer promptly
single over second to bring Swanson
in with the fourth run of the frame.
Stevenson ended the raly with a lazy
fly to center.
Hirsch had the Buckeyes eating out
of his hand from start to finish, being
in trouble in only two innings. In the
top of the second, a walk and a hit
batsman put two runners on, but, the

next two hitters grounded into easy
force plays. In the ninth, Ohio State
loaded the bases on two passes and an
error by Blanchard, but Hirsch got
the last hitter, Walter Walhstrom, on
a high bounder in front of the plate.
Stevenson Squelches Attempted Steal
The Buckeyes also had single
men on in the first, fifth and sev-
enth frames but Stevenson erased
one on an attempted steal and the
other two died in their tracks.
Hirsch issued four bases on balls
and fanned three.
The victory gave Coach Ray Fish-
er's squad a Conference record of four
victories in as many outings and a
season total of eight wins in nine
starts. The only loss was a 3-2 de-
cision to Camp Perry last Sunday.
Today, the Wolverines will play
their third game in as many days,
tangling with the Grosse Ile Naval
Base nine at Detroit. An earlier con-
test between the two clubs was rained

By BOB CLINTON
The Wolverine golfers registered a
double triumph on the golf links
yesterday afternoon when the varsity
foursome swamped Ohio State, 16-2,
and the reserve quartet outclassed
Western Michigan, 16'/2-1/2.
In winning from Ohio State, the
linksmen avenged an earlier defeat
at the hands of the Buckeyes, April,
29. At the same time, the golf squad
scored their second win over the
Broncos, having defeated them 25-2
last Saturday at Kalamazoo.
While winning both contests, the
Wolverines failed to lose a single
match. Jack Tews turned in the best
card, a 75, while Tom Messinger hung
up a 79. Dick Peterson, ace of the
Ohio squad, carded a 77.
In the best ball matches played in
the morning, Tews and Paul O'Hara
defeated Peterson and Preston Crab-
ill of the Buckeyes, 21-2. Also, Phil
Marcellus and John Jenswold bested
Bob Love and John Spilker, 3-0.
Wolverines Break OSU Spirit
Michigan's overwhelming victories
in the morning matches broke the
Buckeyes' spirit, and the Wolverines
easily captured the afternoon rounds.
Tews, in firing a 75, defeated Pet-
erson, 2-1. He was behind at the end
of the first nine holes, but rallied to
capture the back nine and win the
match.
Marcellus chipped in a shot from,
off the 17th green to take a one-up
lead over Crabill and was victorious
following the next hole, 2/2-/2. Mes-
singer and Jenswold coasted to easy
shutout victories over Love and Spil-
ker, 3-0.

The defeat of Ohio State showed
that the Wolverine golfers have
worked hard during the past two
weeks. Coach Ray Courtright believes
that there is still time for more of
this before the Big Ten meet in two
weeks.

The match with Western Michigan
took place in the afternoon with the

combined in one round. Ken Berke
and Paul O'Hara defeated Bill Hew-
kins and Earl Holkeboer in the open-
ing of the best ball matches, 2-/2-12.

washed Holkeboer, 3-0.
