bagger over the left fielder's head.
In addition to their timely
ninth inning blows, Bucholz and
Kocesid both rapped out singles
earlier in the game to pace the
Wolverine batters, each getting
two hits on three trips to the
Sophomore hurler Al Vergona,
the third Michigan pitcher to see
action, got credit for the win.
VERGONA entered the game
in the ninth inning with the Wol-
verines leading 1-0 and immed-
iately got into trouble. After giv-
ing up a hit to right fielder Gino
D'Ambrosio, he walked Charley
Milo and then loaded the bases by
hitting Mike Strosky.
Then, with pinch hitter Bob
Rutenbar batting with two outs,
D'Ambrosio scored on a passed
ball by catcher Line Painter and
Milo got a free trip home on a
balk before Rutenbar ended the
inning to. set the stage for the
Wolverines' last ditch stand.
Michigan scored its first run in

the sixth inning when Capt. Bob
Wolff singled home Pete Palmer
from second base. Palmer had
reached first on an error and then
stole second.
Sophomore Bob Larson was
Coach Ray Fisher's choice to
start on the mound for the Wol-
verines and became the first
southpaw to see action for the
Maize and Blue this year.
Larson held the Tartars to three
singles until Jack York took over
at the start of the fourth. In the
five innings he pitched York

five Wayne batters.
The Wolverines showed another
burst of offensive power in the

Hal Morrill's grounder and then
the next two batters went out to
the infield.
After that the Michigan bats

Wolverines Compile 6-2 Record
Outfielders Lead Hitting Attack

Although they had had no full
scale outdoor practice sessions be-
fore they embarked on their spring
tour, Michigan's diamond warriors
emerged from the trip with a
commendable record of six wins
and two losses.
However, Coach Ray Fisher was
not too optimistic, stating that the
only really good team the Wol-
verines faced was the University
of Virginia with whom they split
in a doubleheader Saturday..
FISHER ALSO was not too hap-
py with the performance of his
pitching staff. Ed Grenkoski who
posted two victories during the
trip was the most impressive of
the mound staff.
The outfield composed of
Ralph Morrison, Leo Koceski,
and Bob Fancett provided most
of the heavy batting during the
eight games and all finished
above the .300 mark according
to unofficial averages. ,
Morison paced the Wolverine
regulars with a .394 mark while
catcher Pete Palmer and Fancett,

who doubles as a hurler, both hit

KOCESKI returned from the
trip with a .303 mark on ten hits
which included a pair of homers,
two triples, and a double.
Michigan opened the trip with
a 14-7 victory over Maryland as
Fisher opened his 30th season at
the helm of the Wolverines. Ko -
ceski paced the attack with a
homer, triple, and single.
The following day the Maize and
Blue dropped a 10-8 decision to
George Washington but bounced
back 'to topple Fort Meade, 8-4,
and Quantico Marines, 16-6.
FANCETT turned back William
and Mary, 8-4, on seven hits and
then Al Vergona and Grenkoski
combined to topple Virginia Mili-
tary Institute, 4-1.
Meeting Virginia in a double-
header Saturday, the Wolverines
grabbed the opener behind Gren-
koski, 5-3, before losing the night-
cap, 4-1.

Katzenneyer Hopeful
Despite Winless Trip
One year ago a Michigan golf
team returned home from a spring
warmup tour of the South without
a victory to its credit.
The situation is the same this
season since the Wolverines ab-
sorbed lickings from Wake Forest,
North Carolina and Duke in dual
meets played during the recent

NO ONE, least of all Coach Bert
Katzenmeyer, is overly alarmed,
however. It's a matter of record
that last year's team bounced back
to win the Big Ten Championship
after its slow start against south-
ern clubs which have the advant-
age of year-round practice.
Katzenmeyer is pleased that
his seven man squad was tough
enough to extend its seasoned
opponents to the last three holes
in almost every individual match.
Nevertheless, the final scores
were decisively . against Michi-
Wake Forest won its seventh in
a row in stopping the Wolverines,

victorious by a 17/-9/2 count and
Duke triumphed, 22-6-2.
