Four Moundsmen Limit
Detroit to Three Safeties
Swanson Continues in Role of Team Slugger
By Driving Home Three of Michigan's Tallies

Spartans Upset Michigan Linksmen

After scoring nine times in the
fourth inning, the Michigan baseball
team coasted the rest of the way as
it overwhelmed the University of
Detroit by a 10-0 score at the U. of
D. Stadium yesterday.
Four Michigan hurlers limited the
hapless Titans to three safeties while
striking out 13. Pro Boim started
on the mound and got credit for his
second victory of the season. Bliss
Bowman and Earl Block each did a
two inning stint on the mound after
Boim had pitched the first four in-
nings. Dick Savage pitched the ninth.

Detroit batters only managed to
hit one ball out of the infield, that

According to Coach Ken Doherty,
the task of taking the Notre Dame

but easy,-The main reason is a fel-
low named Bill Leonard, Notre Dame's
outstanding middle-distance prospect,
who turns in mile times hovering
around the 4 :20mark.

However, the Maize and Blue, re-
presented by three top "whales,"
Captain George Ostroot, Chuck Fon-
ville, and Jim Artley, should wall
away with honors in the shot put
and discus. The 100 and 220 sprints
look like toss-ups, with Val Johnson
and Bob Ferguson striving for Michi-
gan victories.
The dependable mile relay of the
Wolverines should repeat their vic-
tory of last week by subduing the
Irish foursome. Look for Michigan
also to produce the winners in the
440 and two-mile run, with Hugh
Short dominating the former, and
Dean Voegtlen and Ed Johnson tak-
ing care of the long-distance assign-

a lazy fly hail to Bob Nussbaumer in
centerfield. Each of the three B-mei
struck out four men while Savage
turned in the final strikeout in the
last frame.
Elmer Swanson again was the key
man in the Wolverine attack. The
hard hitting backstop hit a double
and a pair of singles and batted in
three runs in addition to playing his
usual capable game behind the plate.
Nussbaumer and second baseman
Dom Tomasi each collected two safe-
ties. Nussbaumer hit a triple to left
center for the longest hit of the game.
First Two Innings Close
For two innings the game appeared
as if Michigan's 26-3 victory last
week might be a mistake. The first
six Wolverineswere retired in order.
Then in the top of the third Tomasi
doubled just inches inside of the third
base foul line after driving a long
second strike just inches foul along
the same line. Swanson followed with
a double to left to drive in the first
Wolverine run.
Fourth Inning Fateful
Then came the fateful fourth.
Nussbaumer led off with a single after
which the Titan hurler, E4d Zalageris
who had looked good to that point,
hit Don Robinson in the small of
the back. Jack Weisenberger follow-
ed with a hit to the infield, the Titans
unsuccessfully trying for a forceout
at third.
Tom Rosema singled to center driv-
ing Nussbaumer and Robinson across
the plate. Tomasi made the first
Wolverine out by striking out. Swan-
son drove in two more runs and mov-
ed to second on the centerfielder's
error. Boim scored Swanson with a
Kell Scores On Error
Walt Kell hit safely to center but
when the centerfielder made his sec-
ond error of the inning was able to
make it all the way around.
Nussbaumer, up for the second
time in the inning, reached second
when Guy Brown threw wide of first,
only to be put out a play later when
he was forced at home. Robinson
scored the final run on an error and
a wild pitch.
From then on Coach Fisher's squad
took things easy.

Newhouser pitched like anyone but

Aided by the season's first triple

new club record of 13 consecutive
victories today by outscoring the Chi-
cago Whte Sox 14-10 in a free hitting
contest which also saw Johnny Pesky,
star Boston shortstop, set a new

Pesky erased a mark Lou Gehrig

League record set by Mel Ott in 1934.

the hapless A's to six hits and fanned
11 while handing the Mackmen their
fourth straight loss.

Post May Play
There is a possibility that Dave
Post, captain of this year's team, will
make his first appearance in compet-
ition this season against the Broncos.
Post has been unable to play to date
due to a heavy scholastic load in the
Medical School. If Post plays, he will
probably compete at the number five
or six singles position.
Other than this change, Coach Le-
roy Weir will start his usual first
four singles men in Jack Hersh, Bill
Mikulich, Fred Wellington, and Dean
McClusky in that order. Wellington
is the only singles contest anit on th u
squad with an undefeated record.
Five and Six Undecided
The five and six singles starters
won't be definitely known until af-
ter the first four matches are com-
pleted. Either Post, Jim Evans, Hal
Cook, or Mickey Dayton will take
those starting berths.
Playing at number one and two
doubles will be the same combinations
that tangled with the Illini last
Saturday. Hersh and Evans will be
at the number one slot, while Miku-
lich and Wellington will hold down
the number two bracket.

EAST LANSING, May 8-It was
Michigan State's golf match all the
way as the Spartans scored a sur-
prismg 20-7 victory over the Wolver-
ines yesterday on the windy East
Lansing Country Club course.
Michigan was shooting to make it
two straight over its opponents, hav-
ing defeated them earlier this sea-
son. But in the second meeting of
these two teams, the Maize and Blue
linksmen were only able to gain
two singles matches, while tying one
in the doubles play.
Barclay Defeated
Dave Barclay teeing off forwMichi-
gan in the number one spot was de-

one under par. Ed Schalon managed
to net two points on the Maize and

whitewash for Michigan by blanking
