ATO, Sigma Nu Triumph
In Second Place Contests

By SI COLEMAN
Phi Delta Theta and Pi Lamda
Phi remained in the first place
playoffs after yesterday's frater-
nity softball action at Ferry Field.
In a game marred by erratic
fielding on the part of both teams,
the Phi Delts defeated Sigma Al-
pha Mu, 10-8. Pi Lamda Phi also
remained on the victory trail by
beating a spirited Delta Upsilon
team, 10-6.
MacFarland Wins
Overcoming loud moral support
by the Sammies, in addition to his
own wildness, Bill MacFarland
pitched his team to the victory,
enabling them to enter the semi-
finals.
Phi Delta Theta scored a run
in the top of the first inning to
get off to an early lead. But the.
Sanmies were not to be denied.
They retaliated immediately in
4 their half of the inning by tally-
ing three runs.
Three walks and three wild
pitches by MacFarland set up the
scoring of these runs to cross the
plate.
Losing pitcher for the Sammies
was Fred Gordon, who gave up
only five hits. Errors accounted
for many of. the Phi Delt runs.
Rally Fails
The Sammies staged a futile
rally in their half of the-fifth, by
scoring 5 runs, but these were two
shy of tying the game.
In the other first place play-off
game, the Pi Lams defeated Delta
Upsilon behind the pitching of Ed
Lbin. Errors and wildness played
an important part in this game
also.
Dave Cobb, pitchig for DU, had
trouble finding the plate in the
""very first inning. His wildness per-

mitted Pi Lamda Phi to score
five runs.
Pitcher Wild
Despite erratic playing by the
Pi Lams, they never lost their lead.
Lubin also displayed some wild-
ness, however, enabling DU to
score three iuns in the bottom of
the first inning.
Stewart Evans hit the game's
only home run, leading off for DU
in the third inning.
In the second place playoff
action, Alpha Tau Omega defeat-
Byrne Out.
NEW YORK (M -- Pitcher
Tommy Byrne has virus bron-
chitis, verging on pneumonia,
and will be lost to the team for
at least a week, the New York
Yankees announced yesterday.
ed Phi Kappa Sigma, 11-2. ATO
got off to a good start by slam-
ming three hits in the first in-
ning. Pitcher Bob Steinke then set
out to hold the lead throughout
the entire game for ATO.
Sigma Nu squeaked out a nar-
row decision over Triangle, 5-4, to
also advance in the second place
playoffs. Duane Shultz allowed
Triangle only one hit, but errors
allowed the unearned rins to score.
Delta Chi Victorious
In a third place playoff game,
Delta Chi defeated Theta Delta
Chi, 10-3.
Three other games were sched-
uled, but resulted in forfeits. Sig-
ma Alpha Epsilon advanced in thel
second place playoffs when Zeta
Beta Tau forfeited.
Alpha Sigma Phi forfeited to1
Tau Kappa 'Epsilon, and Delta(
Sigma Phi forfeited to Theta Xi.

HERE ARE TWO of the reasons that the New York Yankees hold a big lead in the American League.
Mickey Mantle, left, outfielder, and catcher Yogi Berra, right have hit 18 homers between them. Yes-
terday Mantle's tenth round-tripper of the season helped the Yanks down Cleveland, 4-3.

'RAIN, RAIN CO AWAY':
Rain Hinders Diamondmen's Chances

By JIM BAAD
The weatherman doesn't care
for Michigan baseball, or so it
seems by the weather he hands
out on Wolverine playing days.
Michigan has had four of its
six Conference games rained out
this year. "That's more games
than we'vp had cancelled in years
and years and years," said Coach
Ray Fisher. According to Big Ten
rules, these games cannot be re-
scheduled.
Rain Hurt
Fisher feels that the Ohio State
series, which was called off two
weekends ago, may hurt his team's
status a little. He thinks the Wol-
verines had a good chance to sweep
the double header. As for the two
games with Wisconsin, cancelled
last Saturday, he didn't know.
"Of course, we won't know how
badly any of those games hurt us
until we see how the season comes
out," said Fisher. "Maybe we were
helped in not having to play."
Fox To Pitch
In the two games that did get
played last week, Fisher found out
at least one thing of importance.
Outfielder Bruce Fox has all the
stuff and should be able to pitch
successfully in Big Ten competi-
tion.
The diminutive centerfielder
took the mound against Notre
Dame for five innings and again
demonstrated excellent control.
He allowed no runs and only three

hits before he left the game with
a bad cold.
Fox will be a welcome addition
to Fisher's two other front line
pitchers, Don Poloskey and Bill
Thurston, and should give the
Wolverine coach some more of the
mound strength he has been seek-
ing.
Lefty Considered
Another prospect which can still
be considered is left hander Dean
Finkbeiner. Finkbeiner was not
able to throw during the winter
because of a broken wrist, and is
therefore not yet in top shape.
"Finkbeiner has more speed than
any of my other pitchers," said
Fisher, "but he doesn't use it all
because he is still unsure of him-
self out on the mound.
"I know the stuff is there be-
cause down at Wake Forest he
threw one by a batter so fast that
the man just stood there. That's

the only pitch like that I've seen
from him, though," added the Wol-
verine coach.
Wildcats Weak
As to the Northwestern win,
Fisher seemed fairly satisfied, al-
though he said that the Wildcats
had a weak hitting club. "They
had pretty fair pitching and were
good in the field," he said, "but
they just weren't hitters."
Michigan is now 1-1 in the Con-
ference, but has played from two
to four games less than the other
schools. This could help or hin-
der them in the long run as Fish-
er said, but in one sense it is a
definite hinderance.
The Wolverines have lost four
games of experience which could
have helped in the remaining con-
tests. When there are so few
games to play, as in the Big Ten,
every one that can be played
counts.
