Britten Baffles Michigan
Batters with Two-Hitter

Maize and Blue Face
Ypsi Nine Tomorrow
Again it was a case of too much
pitching and not enough hitting
as Michigan lost its s e c o n d
straight Conference contest to I-
linois, 2-0, yesterday afternoon at
Ferry Field.
Illini ace John Brittin, the
second of the Orange and Blue's
one-two pitching punch, blanked
the Wolverines with but two
hits, singles by Tomasi and Ket-
terer. Friday southpaw Mary
Rotblatt silenced the Maize and
Blue bats to the tune of three
After the first inning, in which
Michigan put three men on but
couldn't push a run across, Brit-
tin was in complete control of
the game. At times he showed
some signs of wildness as he
walked five men but always re-
covered in time to save his shut-
out. Brittin fanned five Wolver-
Captain Cliff Wise hurled for
Michigan and lost his first Con-
ference game in two years. It
was his second loss of the sea-
son as against three wins. Wise
actually had better control than
Brittin, but support in the field
was lacking.
Only one of the Illinois runs
was earned. That was scored in
the sixth to give them their sec-
ond and last score. Russ Steger
opened the frame with a long
triple to right. After Julie Ryko-
vich popped to Howie Wikel, Lee
Miller flied to Bump Elliott in
center field. Steger tagged up and
raced for the plate as Elliott let
the ball go. The throw was wide
and on the third base side of

A three-way tie for first place

league developed yesterday as the
Michigan Daily, Dodgers, and the
Newman Club won their second
game against no losses.
The Dodgers made short work
of the Falcons as they shut them
out, 15-0, with a nine run outburst
in the fourth frame. While B. J.
Surma limited the losers to two
safeties, the "Bums" collected
three homeruns to pace the at-
tack. In the big inning Jack
Ayotte homered with one on and
Willie Horowitz smashed a round
tripper with two teammates
Although each team garnered
only four hits, the Michigan Daily

The other Illinois run came in
the third. Leadoff man Bob An-
derlik reached first as shortstop
Jack Weisenburger fumbled his
grounder. He went to third on a
hit-and-run single to right by
Andy Phillip. and came home a
moment later as Bob Wakefield
bounded a single over third.
Michigan threatened in the first
as Brittin was a bit wild. Ralph
Morrison led off and worked Brit-
tin for a pass. Elliott struck out.

invited to attend movies of the
1945 and 1946 World Series to

Wikel hit a bounder back to the
pitcher's box and forced Morri-
son at second. Both Bob Wiese
and Weisenburger walked to fill
the sacks, but Dom Tomasi groun-
ded to third to end the inning.
The Wolverines will play Mich-
igan State Normal here tomorrow
and journey to Detroit to play the
Titans Tuesday, while the second
two-game series with a Confer-

'M' Nets Four Singles,
.BothDoubles Matches
With Purdue and a stiff wind
providing the opposition, Michi-
gan's tennis team opened its Con-
ference campaign impressively,
yesterday, defeating the Boiler-
makers, 6-1, on the Varsity Courts.
The Wolverines took the first
four singles matches while Pur-

number five, took a three-setter
from Dean McClusky, 4-6, 6-1, 6-1,
for his team's lone win.
Paton Wins Easily
Andy Paton got the Wolverines
off to a flying start, whipping
Dave Rodgers, 6-1, 6-4 in the
number one singles. Behind a ser-
vice which was just too tough for
Rodgers, Paton breezed through
the first set in brilliant fashion.

Fred Otto won a 6-4, 6-2 vic-
tory over Bill Van Camp in the
second singles, but Otto had a lot
of trouble with his service in the
stiff wind and committed more

row in the second game of the
first set and still managed to win
At number three singles, Fred

shutout triumph with a remark-

the Detroit Tigers, the Clevland
Indians' Rapid Robert Feller was
an easy winner today over the
Tigers' southpaw ace, Hal New-

Feller didn't permit a man to
reach second base until the eighth
inning when Pat Mullin doubled
and the only Tiger who reached
third got there after two were out
in the ninth.
Newhouser simply didn't have
what it took to match the In-

collision, yielding three runs and
eight hits and walking four men
in the seven innings he lasted.
Feller walked five men but
