46-Year Record Broken'
For Total Runs in Game
Swansoni, Wciscnlw rger IAca( 23 fliti Attack;-
Bonn, Urquhart, Block Allow Only Two Hits
Michigan's baseball team broke one record and tied another as it over-
whelmed the University of Detroit nine by a 26-3 score for its 26th consecu-
tive victory yesterday at Ferry Field.
The new mark erases the old one for total number of runs scored in
any one game established 46 years ago when the Wolverines topped North-
western by a 26-2 count. The record tied was for runs scored by Michigan.
Five home runs and two triples paced the 23 hit attack off five Titan

hurlers. Elmer Swanson and Jack
Weisenberger divided hitting honors
with four hits apiece. Swanson hit a
home run in his fourth strai!ht
game. The circuit blow came with the
bases loaded in the seventh inning.
Weisenberger hits 4 for 4
Weisenberger hit a homer a triple
and two singles in four times at bat.
Bob Chappuis, who also hit a triple,
Walt Kell and Tommy Imfield were
the other Michigan home run hitters.
"Pro" Boim in his first start of the
season limited the Titans to a single
base hit in the five innings he worked
on the mound, while Tom Urquhart
allowed another single in his two
inning stint. Earl Block worked the
final two frames and didn't allow a
man to reach first base.
After scoring a single tally in the
first on a walk and two singles the
Maize and Blue were never headed. In
the fourth, sixth and seventh innings,
more than nine Wolverines came to
bat, as eight runs crossed the plate
in the fourth and seven in each of the
other big innings. Three men crossed
the plate in the fifth inning.
Rosema Injured
The only sour note in the victory
was the injury to first baseman Tom
Rosema, who was spiked in the sec-
ond inning. When Rosema found
that he wasn't able to run Weisen-
berger was brought in from the out-
field, and Ralph Houser was put in
left field.
Detroit scored a single run in the
fourth on two Wolverine missplays, a
bad throw by Don Robinson and Dam
Tomasi's boot of an easy ground ball.
A two base error by Urquhart on a
throw into right field presented the
Titans with their other two runs after
a walk and a singe in the seventh
frame.
The losers used 19 men in an effort

Feller Tosses
Perfect Game
Against Yanks
NEW YORK, April 30-0P)-Rapid
Robert Feller, Cleveland's fire-ball-
ing right-hander from Van Meter,
Iowa, convinced 37,144 Yankee Stad-
ium fans and the New York Yankees
today that he isn't slipping by throw-
ing a no-hit, no-run game against the
Bronx Bombers for a 1-0 decision on
Frankie Hayes' ninth inning homer.
The 26-year-old speedster walked
five men and struck out 11, allowing
only one Yankee to reach third base,
as he duplicated his opening day no-
hit feat of 1940 when he blanked
Chicago by the same 1-0 score.
First For Yanks Since 1919
Never in the history of the stadium
and not since 1919 had a Yankee ball
club been held without a single safety.
Ray Caldwell of the same Cleveland
club did the job then in the first
game of a doubleheader.
Just a week ago, Ed Head of the
Brocklyn Dodgers had tossed a no-
hitter against the Boston Braves for
the first near-perfect game since
Sept. 9, 1945 when Dick Fowler of
the Philadelphia Athletics turned
back St. Louis without a safe blow.
Feller actually was pitching out of
turn as it had been Allie Reynold's
assignment to pitch the opener of the
New York series. But when yester-
day's game was rained out, manager
Lou Boudreau switched to Feller who
was slightly amused and just a little
peeved at reports he was slipping
because he had lost two of his first
three starts.
hayes Gives Winning Hit
The no-hit story was strictly a
drama of batterymen for the oppos-
ing pitcher, Floyd Bevens had gone
right. down to the wire with Feller
in an eight-inning scoreless duel,
and the winning blow came off the
bat of Bobby's catcher, Hayes.
The was drama in the ninth inn-
ing finish as George Stirnweiss got
a life when Les Fleming let his bunt
go through his legs for an error. Tom-
my Henrich's bunt moved him to
second and he advanced to third on
Joe DiMaggio's infield out. Keller
then rolled to second baseman Ray
Mack to loosen a thunderous roar
from the tense throng.

Golfers Loss to Buckeye Squad
Shows Michigan's Weak Points

JACK WEISENBURGER.. . went
four for four in yesterday's game
including a home run, in addition
to playing both left field and first
base'
at shortstop. On two of the putouts,
the Wolverine infielder had to throw
riflelike pegs to first to catch the
baserunner by a step. Walt Kell and
Dom Tomasi also turned in spectacu-
lar plays from their infield positions.
Kell drew two walks and hit two
singles to make his total for the day
three for five. Dom Tomasi was the
only Wolverine who failed to hit safe-
ly. Houser continued his fine hitting
with two doubles and a single in four
at bats.

Tioer Nine, 4-0'
BOSTON, April 30 -V)-With
right-hander Joe Dobson turning in
his third straight win with a three-
hitter, the Boston Red Sox today
opened their western competition by
shutting out the World Champion-
ship Detroit Tigers, 4-0, before an
18,877 paid crowd.
While vying with Hal Newhouser,
the Boston flinger got timely hitting
from his teammates, including an
eighth inning homer by Bobby Doerr.
Each pitcher had nine strikeouts
while issuing three bases on balls but
Newhouser presented the sockers with
their first run with a wild pitch.
After being greeted with a single
by leadoff Eddie Lake, Dobson did
not give the Tigers another hit until
he had two out in the ninth.
Hank Greenberg slashed a double
off the left field fence but, after Dick
Wakefield beat out an infield roller,
Dobson ended the game by forcing
Pat Mullin to ground out.

By CHUCK LEWIS
In the closest match of the season
thus far, Michigan's tennis team lost
its first contest in four encounters
to the highly-touted Wayne netmen,
5-4, yesterday afternoon at Ferry
Field.
The Tartars presented to the racke-
teers by far the toughest competition
that they have faced this year. In
winning, Wayne ended a 15-year su-
premacy that Michigan tennis teams
have held over their adversaries from
Detroit, together with placing the
only blemish on the Maize and Blue's
record for the 1946 campaign.
Wayne Wins Three Singles Matches
Each of the first four singles
matches went the limit of three sets
and were deciding factors in the out-
come of the entire meet, as three
went to the Wayne contestants.
Playing in the number one slot,
Jack Hersh faced Wayne's Bob Ry-
land, who won both the city of De-
troit and state of Michigan singles
championships last year. The match
was well played, but Ryland proved
just too much for Hersh in winning,
6-4, 3-6, 6-3.
In the number two match, Del Rus-
sell's all-around net game spelled
defeat for Michigan's Bill Bikulich,
in a close match, 6-3, 5-7, 7-5. Fred
Wellington, playing in his usual three
slot, maintained his undefeated record
by subduing Jerry Gurman of the
Tartars by consistent playing, 6-1,
5-7, 7-5.
Dean McClusky, Michigan's num-
ber four man, lost his first match of
the season in the closest singles
match of the afternoon against Al
Gross. McClusky had his opponent
four times at match point in the
second set after winning the first, but
a great comeback by Gross prompted
him to win, 3-6, 8-6, 6-4.
Each of the number five and six
matches went but two sets with
Wayne's Ben Siegal defeating Paul
Schoenblaub, 6-4, 6-3, while Hal Cook
won from Jim Alexander of Wayne
in the number six match, 6-4, 6-1.

brought together Jim Evans and
Mikulich for Michigan and Russell
and Gurman representing Wayne,
This match was characterized by
many long slam-lob volleys and pro-
duced the best tennis of the day. The
Wayne duo won despite Evans' timely
and well-executed placements, 4-6,
6-2, 6-3.
The number one and three doubles
matches went but two sets a piece,
and the Michigan combos emerged
victoriously on both occasions.
After the match, Coach LeRoy Weir
expresed that Wayne has a fine team,
and the contest as a whole was well
played and that the team was looking
forward to meeting Illinois here
Saturday.

Golf mentor Bill Barclay dislikes
losing to an Ohio State team as much
as any Michigan coach, but he is us-
ing the defeat which his squad suf-
fered at the hands of the Buckeye ag-
gregation last Saturday at Colum-
bus as a source of constructive criti-
cism of the Michigan team's miscues.
"In one way the loss did us some
good because it showed us what our
weak points are," commented the
genial coach. "Now the fellows know
what is wrong and can settle down to
work."
The number one reason Barclayj
cited for 19'2-172 defeat was sim-
play that Ohio State has a good team.
As proof of this, Barclay pointed out
that Howard Baker, who was top man
on the '45 championship squad, is
now playing in the third spot.
Last Saturday's match was closer

clay is optimistically looking for-
ward to the return match with Ohio
State on May 20. As an example of
the close play, Kessler was only one
hole down in his match and that cost
the Wcverines two and one-half
points. Michigan's leading man,
Dave Barclay shot a much higher
score than he usually does but still
was behind only two holes to give
the Buckeyes three important points,
"Although many golf matches are
iight," Barclay said, "it'Si not too in-
ccnceivable to think that if we could
reverse the clone ones, we could win
next time."
With two important matches com-
ing up Friday and Saturday with De-
treit and Northwestern, respectively,
Barclay will be concentrating the
squad members on their approach
shots and their putting, two of the
weak points shown in the match with
the Bucks.
