Seven Run Rally in Ninth'
Breaks Up Even Con tesi
Kell, Nussbaumer Lead Attack with Homers;
Pitcher's Wildness Proves Costly for Hurons
By CLARK BAKER
Daily Sports Editor
YPSILANTI, May 28-Michigan's baseball team walked to a 13-5 win
over Michigan Normal at Briggs Field here today but found the going a little
tougher than anticipated.
The Normal lads didn't deserve their fate and pitcher Ed Gilday in
particular has a good cry coming. For eight innings he handcuffed the Wol-
verines with six hits falling victim to his own wildness and costly miscues
behind him.
Then the roof fell in. Putting together six walks, a hit batsman, a couple
of errors and one lone single, Michigan iced the contest with a seven-run
splurge in the ninth frame. Gilday walked the first run of the inning across
and then retired in favor of Bob >- --

r

Stevens.
The fenced-in ball park presented
a nice target for long-range hitters
but the Michigan sluggers just
couldn't get their batting eyes
trained on the short fences. Only
Walt Kell and Bob Nussbaumer hit
the jackpot. On Gilday's second pitch
of the ball game Kell parked the
horsehide over the 318-foot mark in
right center.
Nussbamner Homers
Nussbaumer's pay-off clout came
in the fourth inning with no one
on base. The Maize and Blue center-
fielder lofted another of Gilday's
tosses high over the left centerfield
fence some 318 feet from the plate.
Between them Kell and Nussbaumer
collected five of the Wolverine's seven
hits. Tom Rosema and Dom Tomasi
were the only other Michigan play-
ers to hit safely.
Kell's four-ply poke started Michi-
gan off on the right foot. Nuss-
baumer followed with a line double
to right center and stole third. Jack
Weisenberger drew a base on balls
and he and Nussbaumer worked a
double steal, Nussbaumer scoring.
Weisenberger then stole third and
scored on Rosema's fly to left.
Normal came right back in their
half of the first to ring up a pair of
counters. Chuck Nemeth and Bob
Moffett drew walks ,of f Tom Urque-
hart and moved down as Bill Nuse
was safe on Don Robinson's error.
Charles Krawczak sent two runners
across the plate withi a single.
Normals Lead in Second
The Normal lads moved ahead, 5-3,
in the bottom half of the second with
A three-run rally. Hinegar and Gil-~
day walked and Nemeth sent them
both home with a line triple over
Weisenberger'shead in deep left.
Nemeth scored a minute later when
Robinson's peg to Rosema on Gram-
beau's grounder drew the Maize and
Blue first-sacker off the bag.
Nussbaumer's fourth inning homer
Cardinals Clip Cubs
With 14 Hit Attack
CHICAGO, May 28-(P)-The St.
Louis.Cardinals collected 14 hits off
four Chicago Cubs' pitchers today to
gain a 12 to 2 victory. Dick Sisler's
grand slam home run highlighted
an eight run fifth inning as St. Louis
tied up the current series at a game
apiece.
Terry Moore, St. Louis center-
fielder, injured his right knee catch-
ing Bob Sturgeon's liner in the sixth
inning. He left the game, giving way
to Buster Adams.
Wilks was the winning pitcher
while Passeau the losing hurler.
St. Louis 000 081 003-12 14 0
Chicago 110 000 000-2 5 3

made it 5-4, and Michigan picked up
two more runs in the sixth to go
ahead. Gilday loaded the bases with
passes with one out. Nussbaumer hit
a double-play ball at Moffett who
stepped on third and threw too late
to get Nussbaumer at first. Elmer
Swanson crossed the plate to knot
the score at five-all.
Kell Escapes Rundown
A minute later Robinson hit to
Hinegar behind first. The Normal
first-sacker fumbled the ball but
recovered in time to throw to the
plate and catch Kell in a rundown.
Kell scored when Hal Lagg, Normal
catcher, overthrew third-baseman
Moffett in the attempted rundown.
Dick Savage who took over the
Maize and Blue mound chores in the
sixth received credit for the win
with the ill-fated ace, Gilday, being
charged with the loss. Three Wol-
verine hurlers combined to limit the
losers to seven hits while fanning
eight. Gilday struck out seven Wol-
verines, getting Weisenberger, Swan-
son and Tomasi via strikeouts twice

Six Gol fers Set
For Title Clash
At Minneapolis
Michigan Co-Favored
With Buckeyes To Win
Preparing for the Western Confer-
ence tournament at Minneapolis this
week-end, Michigan's six contending
linkemen have been out on the Uni-
versity course sharpening up every
angle of their games, after having
completed their regular season with a
22 to 5 walk-away over Detroit last
Saturday.
"Just rain and mud" was the com-
ment coach Bill Barclay made in
describing the victory over the Ti-
tans on the Red Run course at Royal
Oak. According to the golf mentor
the miserable pouring rain Satur-
day topped all records for unfavor-
able weather conditions and the Wol-
verines have battled the bitter ele-
ments more than once this season.
The coach remarked that Dave
Barclay's two under par 34 on the
back nine which gave him a 76 total
was remarkable under such handi-
caps. The number one player con-
tinued his splendid clubwork in a
thirty-six hole practice workout on
Sunday when hle carded a 74-76
for a 150 total.
Bill Courtright has been tops so
far in practice this week for eighteen
holes with a one over par, 73, but
Golf coach Bill Barclay expects
to enter the qualifying rounds of
the National Open Golf Tourna-
ment which begins Monday at the
Plum hollow golf course in Detroit
after he returns from piloting his
Michigan golfers in the Conference
championships this weekend.
Bill Ramsey was slamming some
championship golf yesterday beating
par on his final nine after turning
in a 37-39-37.
Roger Kessler and Ed Schalon were
also looming good in warm up rounds
yesterday, the former shooting a 39
and the latter a 37 in their initial
rounds.
The Wolverine's biggest rival for
Big Ten honors is Ohio State, and
the records seem to give Michigan a
slight edge. Each team won from
the other on its home course by
equally' decisive margins, however
the Buckeyes have suffered two de-
feats in Conference competition this
season compared to a lone setback for
the Wolverines. Ohio's other loss was
to Northwestern by the same 14 to
13 score which saw Michigan in
front of the Wildcats.

NEW YORK, May 28--(A)-They
turned the lights on for the first
time at the Stadium tonight but they
shone only for the Washington Sen-
ators as the Yankees bowed to the
knuckle-ball wizardy of Dutch Leon-
ard, 2 to 1. Leonard checked the
New Yorkers with six hits.

Defending their Big Ten champion-
ship, Michigan's varsity tennis team'
will leave this afternoon for Chicago
to compete in the Conference matches
to be held tomorrow, Friday, and
Saturday on the Northwestern courts!
at Evanston.
Illinois' netmen, by virtue of their
being undefeated in Conference com-
petition this year, rank as heavy
favorites to capture the crown. Mich-
igan, Chicago, and Ohio State, are
the next strongest teams competing
and will force the Illini to the very
end if they are to emerge from
Evanston as Conference champions
for 1946.
Regular Line-up To See Action
Coach Leroy, Weir will probably use
the same lineup that has seen the
Maize and Blue through five victories
as against two defeats in Conference
competition. The netmen's only loss-
es were suffered at the hands of Il-
linois and Chicago by scores of 6-3
and 5-4.
Jack Hersh will again handle the
number one assignment. Hersh was
Big Ten champ in the number three
position in last year's meet, but he
will compete at the higher spot this
season. Hersh has a record of four
wins and three losses against Con-
ference teams.
Bill Mikulich will be Michigan's
number two man in the Conference
and will carry a four and three record

f

to the meet. The Maize and Blue's
third man is Fred Wellington who
boasts four triumphs, with Jim Evans
in the fifth slot boasting the same
number of victories.
McClusky Holds Top Record
The best record of any Wolverine is
held by Dean McClusky who boasts
of five triumphs and has two set-
backs. McClusky will play number
four for Michigan. Hal Cook, who has
had an injured back for the past
week will probably be in shape to
resume his usual spot as number six
man.
Weir will use Hersh and Evans
on the first doubles spot, while Mik-
ulich and Wellington will try to help
their four and one record. The best
mark of the doubles teams is five
wins and one setback and is held by
the number three team of McClusky
and Paul Schoenlaub.
T19in-er-PS wtl, 6-1
CLEVELAND, May 28-(P)--Fred-
dy Hutchinson limited the Cleveland
Indians to five hits tonight to hurl
the champion Detroit Tigers to a
6 to 1 victory before 18,473 specta-
tors. Charley (Red) Embree was
charged with the loss.
Detroit 000 002 103-6

Illinois Raes Strong
SVaoritCe To Cop Title
By BILL MATNEY
After absorbing its second &lraight
drubbing in two weeks, Michigan's
track team will depart for Cham-
pain. tomorrow, to battle Ohio State
and Minnesota for second place laur-
els in the annual Western Confer-
ence Outdoor Track Championships
to be this Friday and Saturday.
With Illinois readily conceded first
place honors, by virtue of its smash-
ing victories over all Big Ten com-
petition to date, the Wolverines will
have anclose brush with the Buck-
eyes and Gophers for the place
points. All three squads are well-
balanced and the edge will go to the
team least affected by the point dis-
tribution. of the individual winners.
Johnson To Fight For Fourth
Wisconsin's Lloyd LaBeach can be
counted on to bite deeply into Michi-
gan's potential points in the 100 and
220-yd. dashes, along with Billy Ma-
this, Jack Pierce of the Illini, and
Carl Baynard of OSU. Val Johnsonof
Michigan, who defeated Baynard
last week in these events, will try
to repeat his decisions Saturday and
take a fourth place. It is possible that
Coach Leo Johnson of Illinois will
toss McKenley into the 220 in an ef-
fort to garner the first three places
in the 220 and first, third, and fourth
in the century. The Jamaican speed-
ster warmed up last week against
Minnesota by taking the 100 in
:9.8 and the 220 in :21.6.
The quarter-mile gives all indi-
cations of being a knockdown affair
for the spots of recognition. McKen-
ley, of course is expected to move in
first and try for the world record in
his effort, with Hugh Short and

Horace Coleman of Michigan, whose
:47.6 and :47.7 marks behind the
Illini ace are tops for the remainder
of the contestants. The remaining
two places will be toss-ups between
Gonzales and Ockert of Illinois, Reid
and Whitfield of Ohio State, Comer
of Minnesota and Soble of Michigan.
Barten, Rehberg Will Duel Again
Indoor half mile titlist Herb Barten
will have trouble repeating his win-
ter victory over Bob Rehberg of
Illinois, who shaded the Wolverine
freshman in a dual meet recently.
The field in this event will be bulging
with talent of the same calibre, the
foremost of whom will be Bob Thom-
ason of Michigan, Bill Clifford and
Malvin Whitfield of the Buckeyes,
Dave Bedell of Illinois, and Tom Deal
of Indiana. Barten, Whitfield, and
Rehberg have run 1:56 in competi-
tion to date, and should be bunched
closely at the tape. Ohio State's
Clifford, rapidly improving after a
leg injury in the Penn Relays in
April, will be the darkhorse of the
race.
Bob Rehberg and Indiana's Earl
Mitchell shared honors last week in
the mile run, when each man turned
in 4:22 performances in two differ-
ent meets. This mark is three sec-
onds better than that of Michigan's
Bob Thomason who fell victim to
Clifford's stretch drive last week af-
ter setting pace for most of the dis-
tance.
