(Special to The Daily)
COLUMBUS - Pushing across
nine runs in a wild eighth inning
uprising, Michigan's baseball squad
toppled Ohio State, 10-5, in a
Western Conference game here
yesterday afternoon.
The Wolverines were trailing, 5-
1, going into the eighth frame. At
this point the Buckeye hurlers be-
gan what Michigan Coach Ray
Fisher termed "the weirdest ex-
hibition of pitching I have ever
seen in Big Nine play.''
BILL BUCHOLZ opened the in-
ning for the Maize and Blue with
a single, but was forced at second
by Leo Koceski. Dick Hauck, Ohio
State's starting hurler, then
walked Ted Kobrin. Jeiry Dorr
batted for Jack McDonald and hit
back to the pitcher. Hauck hesi-
tated too long in deciding where
to throw and all hands were safe
loading the bases.
Bob Wolff and Ralph Mor-
rison worked Hauck for walks
before Pete Perini came in to
pitch for the Bucks. Perini
walked Captain Hal Raymond
and was relieved by Dick Hess.
Vic Fryling batted for Bob Hicks
and was safe when the Buckeyes
threw late on a play at the plate
giving Michigan another run. Wil-
lard Baker then rapped a ground-
er back to the pitcher's box. Hess
threw wild to the plate allowing
another run to score.
* * *
WITH THE BASES still loaded,
Bucholz and Koceski each walked.
Al Hasselo relieved Hess and
walked Kobrin again forcing
across the eighth run of the frame.
He then succeeded in striking out
Hal Morrill. Hasselo then nicked
Wolff with a pitched ball before
striking out Morrison to end the
inning.

Bob Hicks, who hurled the
seventh inning for the Maize
and Blue received credit for the
victory, which gave the Wolver-
ines a sweep of the two game
series.
The Michigan nine is currently
riding the crest of a five game
winning streak in Big Nine com-
petition and have a record of six
wins against four defeats.
MICHIGAN OPENED the scor-
ing in the third inning when Buch-
olz tripled to right center and
scored on Koceski's double to the
same place a few minutes later.
Eddie Grenkowski, hero of
last week's win over Illinois,
started for Michigan and relin-
quished two runs to the 1Rucks
in the third on a walk and three
singles.
Two errors and two singles ac-
counted for three more Ohio State
runs in the sixth. Hicks held the
Buckeyes scoreless in the seventh
and was lifted for a pinchhitter
in the big eighth inning. Dave
Settle checked the losers in the
final two stanzas.
* * *
OHIO STATE outhit the Wol-
verines, eight to six. Baker and
Bucholz sparked the victors'
hitting with two singles and a
single and triple, respectively. A
single by Kobrin and ;oceski's
double were the only other hits.

CONFERENCE STAN1aINGS

By TED PAPES
Michigan's golfers like to play
in their own back yard.
This was dramatically demon-
strated yesterday at the University
course when the Wolverines, losers
of three straight previous Confer-
ence meets on foreign ground, cap-
tured two victories in one day,
whipping Ohio State 23%/-12/2 and
turning back Illinois, 262-9/2.
THE BUCKEYES were consoled
to some extent by emerging over
the Illini 23/2-121/2 in the third
corner of this triangular clash.

75.3 average medal score. The
losing squads, by comparison,
averaged four strokes higher in
the 36 hole match.
Yesterday's star was Wolverine
Rog Kessler who flattened his foes
with a blistering pair of rounds.
He warmed up in the morning
with a steady par performance of
72, then came back in the after-
noon to clinch medalist honors by
firing a 69 for a total of 141, three
under par.
* * *
KESSLER'S TEAMMATE, Bob
Olson, came in for a share of the
laurels by completing his after-
noon chores with the day's lowest
18 hole score, a 68. His earlierI
outing required 78 strokes, how-
ever.
Ohio State was helpless in try-I
ing to match these Wolverines,
although the number one Buck-
eye, Bob Rankin got his team
off to a flying start by defeating
Michigan's captain, Ed Schalon,
in a torrid first round duel.
Rankin shot a 72.

ST. LOUIS-With Roy Sievers
slamming the ball and Al Papal
doing the mound work, the St.
Louis Browns moved back into the
victory column yesterday with an
8-3 triumph over the Detroit Ti-
gers.
Sievers got his first major
league homer in the sixth inning
with Dick Kokos on base to break
up a 2-2 tie. Sievers then doubled
in the seventh frame to send home
Jack Graham and Kokos.

WASHINGTON-The Wash-
ington Senators got back into
their winning stride yesterday
with a 5-4 win over the Boston
Red Sox.
The President joined some 18,-
664 fans in a happy homecoming
for the Senators, just back from
a Western trip. They hammered
three Red Sox pitchers for 1Z hits,
including four by Sam Dente. -
PHILADELPHIA - Eddie Joost
climaxed an uphill battle for the
Philadelphia Athletics yesterday
with a three-run eighth inning
homer that earned the A's an 8-5
triumph over the New York Yan-
kees.
Joost struck his deciding blow
off Bob Porterfield, third of four
Yankee pitchers, with two down.
Porterfield dug his own grave
by walking lead-off batter el-
mer Valo. Pete Sunder sacri-
ficed Valo to second and Por-
terfield then passed Mike Guer-
ra who previously whacked two
doubles. Taft Wright forced
Guerra but Joost then rocketed
the ball into the upper left field
stands.
NEW YORK-The New York
Giants cracked base hits like
pop corn at the Polo Grounds
yesterday as they thundered to
a 12-2 conquest over the Phila-
delphia Phillies.
BOSTON-Sibby Sisti's pinch-
hit single drove in Jim Russel
with the 12th inning run that gave
the Boston Braves a 7-6 win over
the Brooklyn Dodgers last night
before a 25,924 crowd. It enabled
the National League Champions
to continue in a first place tie
with the New York Giants.

By TONY BUESSER
The Wolverine net squad, back
from their weekend trip to Cham-
paign, will play host to the Michi-
gan State netmen tomorrow on
the home courts at 2 p.m.
The Spartans will be out to trip
up Michigan for the 7-2 defeat
that the Wolverines handed them
at the beginning of the season
when they met on the courts at
East Lansing.
BOB MALAGA, who played in
the number three sot forMichi-
gan State last year, has been top
man since the start of this season
and will face Andy Paton of Mich-
igan. In their last match Paton
downed the Spartan 2-6, 6-3, 6-3.
Bob . Fleischmann, the only
other letter winner on the squad
besides Malaga, will probably be
opposite the Wolverines number
two man, Al Hetzeck.
In their earlier match Hetzeck
dropped the point to Fleischmann
in a long three set battle. Since
that time Hetzeck has been win-
ning steadily and this match
should promise to be a hard one.
* * *
IN NUMBER THREE position
for the Spartans will be Tom Mar-
tin cross-net from Michigan's Fred
Otto. Martin has had some ex-
perience in varsity competition

besides being a regular third slot
man for Michigan State this sea-
son.
Mike Yatchman will fill the
number four post for the Green
and White as he faces Wolverine
Bill Mikulich in that position for
Michigan.
Don MacKay, number five man
for the Maize and Blue, will be
serving to Spartan Jerry Teifer.
MacKay defeated Teifer in their
earlier duel in a fast two sets.
IN SIXTH place for the Wolver-
ines will be Gordie Naugle, cross-
court from either Dan Perillo or
Bruce Brevitz for Michigan State.
Naugle will also be out to get back
the point he dropped to Spartan
Brevitz in their last encounter.
The doubles matches will
probably find Paton and Miku-
lich up against Malaga and
Fleischmann. The Otto-Hetzeck
combination will pair off against
a team of Martin and Yatch-
man who have given State valu-
able aid in several close matches.
The number three doubles for
Michigan will be MacKay and,
Naugle. The combo for Michigan
State has not yet been decided
but it will probably be Jerry Teifer
and either Dan Perillo or Bruce
Brevtiz on the courts for the
Spartans.

AS FOR ILLINOIS, her golfers
were obviously out of their class.
At no time did they threaten to
affect the final outcomes, but the
Illini captain, Dave Logan, did rise
for some momentary glory on the
second nine of his morning round,
notching a 34 to subdue Schalon
and Rankin for two team points.
Leo Hauser, Pete Elliott, and
Chuck MacCallum assisted in
bearing the Michigan standard
through the last three matches
by consistently holding their
opposition at bay. Hauser was
especially steady with a 75 and
73.
As for the sub-par rounds, there
is only one adjective to describe
them - masterful. Olson started
his by parring every hole on the
front nine except the difficult 410
seventh which he birdied.
* * *
HE CONTINUED WITH three
birds on the way in, giving him
his 68 which came on the heels
of Kessler's 69. The latter was
fashioned with the aid of four
birdies also.

But he was unable to
that pace, weakening
against Schalon's 76 in
ternoon efforts.
