Nine Pursues
Title Clincher
At. iscons i
By HAROLD TANNER
Coach Ray Fisher and his Mich-
igan baseball squad will be try-
ing to clinch at least a tie for the
Big Ten title today when they
launch a two game series with
Wisconsin at Madison.
A clean sweep of the series with
the second place Badgers assures
the Wolverines of a tie for' the
crown.
* * *
IN TODAY'S opener the two
leading pitchers of the conference
-Eddie Grenkoski and Thornton
Kipper of Wisconsin - are sche-
duled to hook up. Both hurlers
have worked three complete games
and boast records of three wins
against no defeats.
Grenkoski was woefully inef-
fective against Purdue, but Fish-
er is hoping that he can regain
his form today. Bob Hicks, who
has three wins and only one de-
feat is the other possible start-
ing selection for the Maize and
Blue. Dave Settle, Al Virgona,
and Bob Larsen may also see ac-
tion.
The Wisconsin team is loaded
with veterans including two All-
Conference selections from last
year, Bob Shea, first base, and
catcher Bob Wilson. However, both
these men have been below par
with Shea hitting .281 in confer-
ence play, while Wilson is floun-
dering with a .206 mark.
OUTFIELDER Paul Furseth is
SWisdonsin's leading offensive wea-
pon, hitting .364 in conference
games, and driving across ten
runs. Next in line is Bruce Elliott,
another outfielder, who is hitting
.333.
The Badgers are hitting .276
in the conference for fourth
place behind Michigan's pace-
seting .287 mark.
The Wolverines have been
forced to rely on this heavy hit-
ting as they have only a .928 field-
ing mark, barely good for seventh
on the ladder.
The windup of the two game
series is set for tomorrow morning
with either Edward Keating (2-1)
or Gene Radke (0-1) the probable
Badger starter against Hicks.

Special to The Daily
EAST LANSING - A pair of
sterling golf rounds by Keith Le-
Clair and Dick Evans enabled the
Wolverines to turn back Michigan
State's link squad for the second
time this season in a match here
yesterday.
The score was 15%/2 to 111/2.
* * *
PLAYING individual and best
ball m a t c h e s simultaneously,
Michigan recorded its seventh
success in eight starts by virtue of
a fine average meGal score of 74
for the six team members.
LeClair was largely responsi-
ble for that performance. Tee-
ing off in the number one posi-
thin, the bantam slugger spun
a masterful three-under-par
69 to win medalist honors. He
and his partner, IWean Lind,

Suspension
On Wakefield
Dick Wakefield, whose career
has been in the hands of New
York General Manager George M.
Weiss since last week, received
word in his Ann Al'bor home
yesterday, that his suspension has
been lifted and that he has been
reinstated on the payroll.
According to the Associated
Press, the Yankees qualified the
reinstatement with the declara-
tion that the controversial out-
fielder will never play for them
again.
C L U B SECRETARY Arthur
(Red) Paitterson stated, "Some
disposition of his case will be an-
nounced soon."
The announcement came just
one week after Weiss suspended
Wakefield for failure to report
to the Chicago White Sox on
April 29.
Wakefield is definitely on the
trading block right now, and all
the teams in the majors will have
the opportunity to bid for his
services. The Associated Press
stated that rumor has Wakefield
being traded to some club in the
National League.
* * *
WAKEFIELD feels that some
club in the majors might be will-
ing to buy his services and also
says that he would consider play-
ing only for a major league team.
He is currently staying in Ann
Arbor awaiting further word from
the Yankees.

scored upon. They did gather two
of the three partnership points,
however.
Cliff Taylor and Jack Zinn
kept Michigan State in the run-
ping by routing Wolverines
Chuck MacCallum and John
Fraser in the middle foursome
by a score of 8-1.
Taylor was low for the Spar-
tans with a regulation 72, with
Zinn close behind at 73. In a pre-
vious meeting between the two
clubs, this pair turned in an iden-
tical performance to account for
the bulk of the team's tallies.

Frosh Tennis
Team Sunday
By DAVE PRESTON
After Sunday's match between
his freshman and junior varsity
teams net coach Bill Murphy will
have a far better concept of the
future of the Wolverine tennis
squad.
Murphy knows the quality of
the junior varsity, and will keep
this in mind, plus the results of
the match, to determine how much
help the freshmen will be in the
next three years.
* * *
THIS YEAR'S EDITION is con-
sidered far stronger than the
freshmen of last spring, from
which only Steve Bromberg has
attained varsity status.
On Sunday Lennie Brumm will
handle the frosh, while Murphy
will guide the reserves.
Brumm's lineup will include
Gene Barrack of Bayonne, New
Jersey, Jerry Shull of Adrian, Bob
Russell of Kalamazoo, Bob Curhan
of Detroit, Jim Holtz of Monroe,
and Dana Underwood of Owosso.
-* * *
T HE FIRST FIVE gained ex-
perience on the indoor courts this
winter. Underwood made his first
appearance this spring, but showed
enough ability to nose his way into
the top six.
In a recent tournament Barrack
successfully waded through the
field, defeating Shull in the finals.
Russell and Curhan were elimi-
nated in the semi-finals.
Against this array Murphy will
counter with Doren Russler, Bob
Stahl, Dave Barrett, Jack Griffith,
Bob Hesse, and Erhard Rothe.

By The Associated Press
After nearly tossing away a 10
run lead yesterday, the Boston Red
Sox edged the Detroit Tigers,
13-12, to topple them from their
perch as co-leaders in the Ameri-
can League.
The Boston club poured seven
runs across in the fourth inning to
grab what looked like an insur-
mountable 11-1 lead, but the Tig-
ers roared back with six runs in
their half of that 13 run inning
to make it 11-7.
Detroit, striving desperately for
a victory that would have meant
sole possession of first place, car-
ried the contest right to a photo
finish. The Tigers made it a 13-12
game by pushing a pair of tallies
home in the last of the ninth.

INDIANS 4, ATHLETICS 3
With one out in the last of the

Indians defeated the Philadelphia
Athletics, 4-3.
It was Brissie's sixth straight
setback in the rubber game of a
three-game series.
Ferris Fain's homer in the
fourth and Kennedy's in the sixth
had deadlocked the, game at 1-1.

GIANTS 10, CUBS 4
Monte Irvin, only two days up
from Jersey City, batted in five
runs with a grand slam homer
and a single to lead the New York
Giants to a 10-4 victory over the
Chicago Cubs.
The Cubs played under protest,
disputing a balk called by umpire
Lon Warneke against pitcher Walt
Dubiel in the fifth inning while
Dubi A was trying to give Henry
Thompson an intentional base on
balls with Giant runners on sec-
ond and third.

DODGERS 9, CARDINALS 8
The Brooklyn Dodgers took ad-
vantage of three ninth inning er-
rors committed by St. Louis third
baseman Tommy Glaviano to score
five runs and come from behind to
nip the Cardinals, 9-8.
Very few in the Ladies' Day
crowd of 15,000 would have given
much for the Brooks' chances as
the Dodgers came to bat in the
eighth. Howie Pollet on the mound
for the Cards appeared to be head-
