HEAP SICK [NJUN:
Tigers Scalp Indians To Hold
Third Position in Junior Loop

Championship Nine Concentrates on Final
Games of Present Season over Week-End

Two Others Win Minor
Awards in Record Total
Five Pitchers, One Catcher, Six Infielders,
Four Outfielders, Honored by Michigan Tutor

By The Associated Press
CLEVELAND, June 14-The De-
troit Tigers tightened their grip on
the American League's third place
by taking both ends of a double-
header today from the Cleveland
Indians, 3 to 0 and 11 to 3. In the
opener rookie Ruffus Gentry tossed
a six-hitter for his second shutout,
and in the nightcap 16 hits enabled
Lefty Hal, Newhouser to gain his
ninth pitching victory.
Gentry outdueled southpaw Al
Smith for his third victory against
five defeats. Rudy York doubled to
open the second inning and eventu-
ally scored what proved to be the
winning run when Don Ross hit into
a double play with the bases loaded.
Get Two in Sixth
The Tigers got two more in the
sixth when Eddie Mayo and York
singled and Pinky Higgins drew a
pass, filing the bases. Jimmy Outlaw
belted a two-run single to left field.
Meanwhile, Gentry made the Indi-
ans keep their distance. In the fifth

Paul O'Dea doubled with one out
but was left stranded when Buddy
Rosar and Russ Peters went out. It
was Detroit's fifth shutout of the
season and the first time Cleveland
has been blanked.
Newhouser Fails to Last
Newhouser wasn't on the scene at
the finish, but he cashed in on the
victory that put him one above his
1943 production. Newhouser had a
7-3 lead in the seventh, but when
Manager Lou Boudreau gathered the
fourth of his five hits and Mike Roc-
co walked, Manager Steve O'Neil
called in Johnny Gorsica who stop-
ped the tribe the rest of the way.
The Tigers gathered 16 hits off
four pitchers in the night-cap, short-
stop Joe Hoover getting three and
driving in three runs. Ex-Tiger Ver-
non Kennedy, just off the suspended
list, bore the brunt of the assault and
was charged with the defeat.
Higgins singled home a run in the
first inning, but Cleveland came back
with two runs on singles by Bou-
dreau, Rocco and Roy Cullenbine
along with Roger Cramer's error.

Team To Close Fine
Year in Contests with
Broncos at Kalamazoo
By MARY LU HEATH
With its worries over winning the
Western Conference championship
safely dissolved, the Wolverine nine
tomorrow travels to Kalamazoo to
try and bring its season's record to
17 wins, two defeats and a lone tie
as it tackles Western Michigan in
two games tomorrow and Saturday.
The record of this year's diamond
club is much better than average as
far as Big Ten Wolverine baseball
champions go. Of the eight other
teams which have won the title in the
past 24 years, the present squad has
compiled a mark bettered only by the
1923 and '28 winners.
Record Best in Decade
Thus, the Michigan record this
year is the best in a decade. The dope
book shows that Coach Ray Fisher's
'23 aggregation chalked up a mark of
22 wins in 26 starts, barely nosing out
the 22 in 27 record of the '28 squad.
The present team is typical of
Fisher's successful clubs. In only

three campaigns has the Wolverine
mentor been unable to produce an
outfit whch has suffered a losing
season, In 1930, Michigan won nine
and lost 15; in '35, they registered 11
wins against 12 defeats; and in 1940,
they won only 10 out of 22 tilts.
To Use Reserve Hurlers
Meanwhile, the Wolverines are
gunning for two big wins Friday and
Saturday which will bring the score
in the victory column to 17. In pick-
ing his starting hurlers, Fisher is
sticking to a regular and also trying
several boys who have had little
chance to get into a regular game
all year.
As usual lefty Bo 13owman will
start the first game, but instead of
right-hander Elroy Hirsch, Fisher
will probably start another right-
handed hurler, Dick Schmidtke.
Schmidtke pitched a few innings for
the varsity last year, but his only
,chance on the mound this season
came in the 3-2 loss to Camp Perry,
which resulted from poor support.
Infield Juggled
Schmidtke may not hurl the com-
plete game, in which case Fisher will

probably choose to throw relief pitch-
ers Al Willers and Jack Hackstadt
against theeBroncos.
The Wolverine infield has been
considerably juggled in the past
week. Catcher Bob Stevenson and
third-baseman Mike Farnyk will not
be on hand for either contest, and
second-sacker Charley Ketterer will
probably be missing in the secondI
tilt.
Swanson To Catch
First-baseman Elmer Swanson, who
caught every game for the varsity
last season, will be behind the plate
for the Wolverines, and Fisher will
move Hirsch down to the initial base.
If Hirsch should be required to pitch,
centerfielder Don Lund or left-fielder
Bob Wiese could be called in from
the outer gardens.
Keith Phelps will play second in
Ketterer's absence, and Walter Kell,
who occupied third base in both tilts
with Purdue Saturday, will probably
guard the hot corner. There is also
an outside chance that outfielder Bob
Nussbaumer may take third or, if
either Wiese or Lund goes to first,
will return to the field.

DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN

Baseball Coach Ray Fisher yester-!
day announced the names of 16 ma-
jor letter winners and two minor
award winners for the 1944 diamond
season.
The 18 awards constitute one of
the largest numbers ever handed out
for baseball by Fisher in his 24-year
tenure at Michigan. Normally, about
15 letters are given.
Five Hurlers on List
Heading the list of recipients are
five pitchers, Elroy Hirsch, Bliss (Bo)
Bowman, Dick Schmidtke, Jock
Hackstadt and Denn;7 Manko. Hirsch
and Bowman were the mainstays of
the Wolverine staff while the others
saw service in spots. Of the other
three, only Manko appeared in a
Big Ten game.
Only one catcher, Bob Stevenson,
who caught every game played by
Michigan this season, received a let-
ter. Six infielders are on the list for
block "M's", including Elmer Swan-
son, Charlie Ketterer, Bruce Blan-
chard, Mike Farnyk, Walter Kell and
Keith Phelps.
Two Minor Awards Given
The first four named constitute
the regular Wolverine infield while
Kell and Phelps saw service as utility
men. Four outfielders complete the
list, Bob Nussbaumer, Bob Wiese,
Don Lund and Bill Gregor.
Minor awards were given to Bill
Nelson, outfielder, and Al Willers,
White House Routs
Colonists For Title
White House defeated Colonial
House 12-1 last night to annex the
Residence Hall League championship
behind the three-hit pitching of Sey-
mour Sonkin plus some timely hit-
ting by his teammates.
After losing their first game, White
House bowled over four straight op-
ponents to come out on top. Sonkin
was aided in the, final tilt by the
errorless fielding of the team.
