Bronco Nine Defeats

Wolverines, 6-4
Major League Round-Up

Michigan Held To Two Hits
In Seventh Loss of Season

* * *

F YESTERDAY'S LOSS to Western Michigan by the Wolverine
baseball squad indicated anything, it was that Ray Fisher is in
desperate need of an apothecary. Just order the veteran mentor a
case of aspirin and he might be able to last out the current campaign
without too much difficulty.
I've seen teams throw away ball games, but Fisher's crew
did about the best Job of getting out the platter, shining it up
#ud presenting it to the Broncos (decorated, of course, with the
ball game) that I have ever witnessed.
The Bronco mound staff was good, but not that good. In all, the
visiting hurlers issued 17 walks which (I am told) are just as good
as hits, yet the Wolverines failed to capitalize on the free passes.
Banging out a mere two hits, Michigan left 15 men stranded, and it
all but wrapped up the ball game for the Broncos.
U'T THAT WASN'T ALL. Fisher had to suffer through the Bronco
half of the eighth with only the bench to keep him from going
through the floor. Three errors in that frame by the Wolverine
inner wall made the game look like muffing the ball was the right
thing to do. There were three other miscues in the game which
helped to erase the memory that Michigan is defending Big Nine
And Captain Hal Raymond pulled off as pretty a boner as
I have ever seen. With Dick Groggel on third and one out,
Michigan's Dick Smith whiffed Dick Bruny, only to have Ray-
mond drop the ball on the third strike. You can't condemn him
for that, but the diminutive receiver forgot to tag the Bronco
batter and was forced to throw him out at first, Groggel coming
hetne on the play with the visitors' third run of the day.
RALPH MORRISON CAME up with a perfect example of what not
to do when you're on the base paths in the fifth after he worked
Western's starting hurler, Jerry Hogan, for a base on balls. Pat
Hartzmark batted for Hal Morrill (who was yanked after striking
out on bad pitches in his first two trips to the plate) and lined out
to center. Morrison had the normal lead away from first but hesitated
in retracing his steps after the catch and was caught off for the.
double play by. a good five feet.
And as long as poor base running is the topic, I might as
well mention the job done by Jack McDonald in the eighth. The
powerful first baseman lined a single into deep right center
which would have been good for at least three but for some
fancy fielding by Groggel. Jack was half way to second when
Groggel grabbed the ball going away from the plate, but he held
up and. raced back to first. It was obvious that even a perfect
throw couldn't have had McDonald at second, yet he played it
safe-too safe!
Oh well, as long as the druggists keep their shelves well-stocked
with headache remedies, Fisher need not despair. But that's one
heckuva way for a coach to go through a season.
