Purdue Leading
With 5-1 Record
Although Michigan's baseball
squad is not having one of its
better seasons, it still can't be
counted out in the Big Nine title
The Purdue Boilermakers cur-
rently have a commanding lead in
the conference with a record of
five wins and only one loss. But

two games left with conference
opponents and they are both home
games with Wisconsin Badgers.
The Badgers haven't fared too
well this year, winning only two
out of their eight starts.
The other contenders are In-
diana and Iowa with 5-3 re-
cords, and Minnesota and Illi-
nois with 4-3 and 5-4 marks
respectively. Minnesota and
Iowa, however, meet next Sat-
urday at Minneapolis and that
should eliminate one of those
two teams.
Purdue has a pair of contests
each with Wisconsin, Indiana and
Ohio State remaining on their
schedule and will have to cop four
of them to clinch the diamond
title by themselves. The series
with the Hoosiers may be the
showdown battle of the season.

Tribe Drops to Seventh;
Reds Whip Boston, 13-9

NEW YORK - ()-The New
York Yankees, behind the two-hit
shutout pitching of Vic Raschi,
handed the Cleveland Indians
their fifth straight defeat yester-
day, 6-0, to dump the World
Champions into seventh place.
A crowd of 28,606 saw the Yan-
kees club Bobby Feller for 12 of
their 13 hits in the seven innings
he worked to hang the season's
third defeat upon the Cleveland
ace righthander.
Feller retired the first two
men to face him, but fell behind
quickly when Gene Woodling
doubled and rode home ahead of
Tommy Henrich's first home
run of the game and sixth of
the season.
The Yankees added three more
in the sixth and Henrich's second
homer in the seventh closed the

It was a see-saw game, with
Cincinnati twice coming from
far behind. Homers by Ray
Mueller and Jimmy Bloodworth,
along with Boston errors, kept
the locals in the contest, and

Hatton punched the winning hit
over the right field fence.

Cardinals today.

Indoor Title No Ticket for Outdoor Win

The team that walks off with
the crown in the Western Confer-
ence indoor track championships
doesn't always come back to win
the outdoor title.
Seven times in the last twenty
years there has been a split be-
tween the indoor and outdoor
championships. The last time was
in 1945, when the Wolverines were
the victors indoors, and the Buck-
eyes of Ohio took the outdoor title
away from them.

AND THIS YEAR, the Bucks are
just as liable to have the crown

Boilermakers, Gophers Cause
Michigan Teams Most Trouble

(Sports Feature Editor)
Purdue teams sure have a knack
of making things rough for Mich-
igan, while Minnesota has been
none to gentle either.
It started last January at the
beginning of the Conference bas-
ketball season. Coach Ernie McCoy
received a stunning blow that put
the skids under his inherited
championship basketball squad.

THE GOPHERS Jarred Michi-
gan in the opener. Two days later,
using five men throughout the
game, the Boilermakers adminis-
tered another bitter defeat to the
traveling cagers, their second loss
in as many starts.
Three months and six days
later, Purdue again put the
damper on the Wolverines.

doubleheader was a severe set-
back to any hopes the Maize and
Blue had of repeating this year.
Two players were involved in
both instances. Lefty Morrill can
chalk those games up to "just
one of those off days." He
tossed in but one free throw
against the Purdue cagers and
collected three hits, while
batting in one run in the twin
At the same time, Bill Berberian
was having a fiesta at guard and
at second base, as his Boilermaker
brothers revenged a certain 40-0
football game.
But Purdue had an accomplice
in Michigan's tumble-Minnesota.
After Ozzie Cowles' crew soft-
ened up the cagers for Purdue in
the first game, they came back in
the late stages of the campaign to
complete the job.
Minnesota wasn't as potent on
the baseball field, but they man-
aged to tag one loss on the Wol-
verines in the third Conference
series. That defeat, number four,
proved to be the last one for Mich-
igan in Big Ten play, but it may
very well be the "straw" that broke
the Wolverines.
