SPRING PIGSKIN NOTES:
Big Ten Builds for Coming Grid Season
By TED PAPES
A dramatic pitching struggle
burst wide open in the tenth inn-
ing at Ferry Field yesterday and-
Western Michigan produced just
enough explosives to outlast Mich-
The frustrated Wolverines will
try a fourth time to gain their
first home victorythis afternoon
at 3:30 when they entertain' the
University of Detroit
THEY FOUGHT bitterly with
the visiting Broncos yesterday and
managed to carry a 1- deadlock
into extra innings before the duel
between Michigan's John Shuett
and Western Michigan's Don Ed-
wards was rudely interrupted by
an offensive outburst.
Bronco catcher Dick Bruny
walked on a 3-2 pitch to open
the tenth, and moved to second
on Edwards' perfect sacrifice,
Gil Sabuco, playing second base
for the Wolverines, then swung in
behind the runner to hold him
close to the bag and as he returned
toward his regular position, Len
Johnston' hammered a hard boun-
der into the infield opening.
FIRST BASEMAN Al Weygandt
was pulled out of position think-
ing that Sabuco might not be able
to get to the ball.
Shuett was asleep on the
mound and failed to cover first
allowing Johnston to beat out
the hit and sending Bruny to
It looked as though the Wol-
verines m i g h t escape further
trouble when Stan Malec fouled
to Weygandt, but Dave Gottschalk
rifled Shuett's first offering into
left field scoring Bruny with the
tie-breaker and installing John-
ston on second.
IlAT BROUGHT cleanup hit-
ter Frank Green to the plate and
he promptly delivered a tremend-
ous 375-foot smash near the chalk
line in left field, stretching it into
a home run when the relay throw,
to the plate was wide.
The blow scored Bruny and
Johnston and left the visitdrs
with what looked like a com-
fortable 5-1 bulge going into the
home half of the bii inning,
It looked even safer when pinch-
hitter Bill Mogk led off with an
easy roller to second. 'Frank How-
ell then drew a base on balls and
moved up one on Bruce Haynam's
single to right. Leo Koceski
walked to fill the bases.
Catcher Pete Palmer was next
to bat, and after he had swung
hard at the first pitch and missed,
Koceski yelled, "Hey Pete, relax!"
* 4. s
ON THE NEXT pitch he "re-
laxed" a double between the out-
fielders in left center to drive in
three runs 'and deposit the poten-
tial tying marker in scoring posi-
tion with one out.
The opportunity faded when
Weygandt was called out on
strikes and Gerry Dorr grounded
to short to end the battle.
Michigan had jumped off to a.
one. run lead in the third inning
when Sabuco opened up with a
three base hit off starting pitcher
Jerry Hogan. He held on as Bill
DenHouterfailed in a pinch hit
role and Howell went down swing-
ing. Haynam was hit in the back
by a pitched ball to put two men
on with two away.
HOGAN THEN committed a
balk and both rtnners advanced,
with Sabuco crossing the plate.
Koceski ended the threat with a
roller on the infield.
The Broncos wasted no time
getting that one back, mainly
because H Bwellmisjudged
Green's long fly to open the
fourth inning. The ball dropped
behind him for a two-bagger.
Green moved to third on Newal
Wilson's lofter to deep left cen-
ter, and came in to score on a
duplicate fly by Bill Hayes.
Lefty Bob Larsen sCarted on the
mound for Michigan and retired
in favor of Duane Hegedorn after
hurling three scoreless frames.
Shuett came on in the seventh and
went the rest of the way in a fu-
He had given no hits to the op-
position going into the tenth.

are slated for pitching chores in

By The Associated Press
CLEVELAND-Bob Feller tam-
ed the surprising White Sox yes-
terday with a 5 to 2 victory that
kept the Cleveland Indians in un-
disputed first place.
The usually second division
Sox were gunning for first place
themselves-a position in the
American League scarcely any
of them would recognize.
At that, the White Sox tagged
earlier for 10 hits to Cleveland's
eight off Bob (Sugar) Cain. But
Freshmen golf tryouts will
start Wednesday, April 24, and
continue for the rest of the
week. Tryouts should report at
the clubhouse for assignments,
fast double plays and tight clutch
pitching stopped them.
Feller, who beat the St. Louis
Browns 4 to 1 his first time out,
fanned only one, his ex-team
mate Eddie Robinson, and walk-
ed three. It was the Indians'
third straight victory.
With a cold crowd of 5,162 look-
ing on, the Indians grabbed a two-
run lead in the second inning and
stayed in front.

BRAVES 7, DODGERS 4
BROOKLYN - Sid Gordon's
three-run homer off reliefer Carl
Erskine after Preacher Roe left
the game with a pulled leg muscle
helped Boston end Brboklyn's five-
game winning streak, 7-4.
Roe clung to a one-run lead
when, he was forced to retire
after seven innings. Erskine
simply didn't have it. He walk-
ed Earl Torgeson and Bob El-
liott before Gordon slammed his
350-foot homer into the left
field seats in the eighth.
The Braves salted down the de-
cision with two more runs in the
ninth on Elliott's single with the
bases loaded off Dan Bankhead.

BUCS 6, CUBS 4
CHICAGO - Wally Westlake's
opening frame, three-run homer
and his eighth-inning fielding gem
gave the Pittsburgh Pirates a 6-4
win over the Chicago Cubs in a
rain-delayed game before 5,750.
Westlake rapped his third hom-
er of the season in the first inning
and started a vital double play
when the Cubs threatened, after
rain held up the game for 37 min-
utes in the eighth inning.

ST. LOUIS-Stan Musial broke
out of his batting slump as the
St. Louis Cardinals turned back
the Cincinnati Reds 3-1 yesterday
behind the effective pitching of
southpaw Max Lanier.
Lanier, making his first start of
the season,, yielded eight hits but
bore down when it counted most.
He issued only one base on balls,
struck out three and put down two
potential threats by forciAg bat-
ters to hit into double plays.
PHILS 6, GIANTS 4
phia Phillies socked six New York
hurlers for 12 hits, including five
two baggers and a triple to defeat
the Giants 6-4 in the second game
of the series last night.
Bob Miller, making his' first
start of the season did not allow a
hit until the fifth inning. Then he
ran into trouble but weathered the
storm until two out in the ninth
when Jim Konstanty was called in
to get Monte Irvin out with the
tying runs on base.
