Ken Tippery drove out five hits,
including two home runs, yester-
day, to lead the Michigan baseball
team to a 10-3, 12-5, double vic-
tory over Northwestern.
The sweep coupled with sec-
ond game losses by Minnesota to
Illinois and Iowa to Purdue gave
the Wolverines undisputed pos-
session of first place in the Big
Ten.
The Wolverine pitching staff
added fine relief work by Glenn
Girardin and Jim Clark to secure
the victory.
John Herrnstein started the

first game for Michigan master-
fully, allowing three hits in the
first six innings.
In the seventh he tired, giving
up two hits and was charged with
three rims, including a home, rua
to the Wildcat's right fielder, Dale
Pienta.
Girardin relieved him in the
seventh allowing one more hit. He
retired the side in the' last two
innings to give the Wolverines the
win.
Michigan went ahead 4-0 in the
second inning.
Steve Boros lead off with a
single. After Ralph Hutchings

struck out, Jim Vukovich hit a
high bounder back to Dave Hill,
the Northwestern pitcher. Hill
bobbled the ball and then fired
past the first baseman for two er-
rors allowing Boros to go to third
and Vukovich to second.
Hill, undoubtedly shaken, threw
two wide pitches to Al Sigman
and then intentionaliy passed him
loading the bases. Jim Dickey pro-
ceeded to work Hill for a walk
scoring Boros. Hill then hit
Herrnstein on the arm scoring
Vukovich and Ernie Myers fol-
lowed with a single scoring Sig-
man and Dickey.
The Wolverines increased their
lead to 6-0 in the fifth when
Bruce Fox got to first on an er-
ror by the Wildcat shortstop, stole
second, and scored on Tippery's
double. He came home on Hutch-
ings single.
After Northwestern scored their
only three runs in the top of the
seventh, Michigan came back in
their half to score three on Tip-
pery's first home run. Myers had
walked and Fox had singled to get
on base before the clout.
Girardin came back after sav-
ing the first game victory for
Herrnstein to start the second
game.
His teammates clobbered Wild-
cat starter Dale Pienta in the first
inning scoring five runs and driv-
ing Pienta from the mound.
Tippery started the deluge after
two were out with his second
home run. Boros singled and
scored on a homerun by Herrn-

baseman who also collected three other hits in Michigan's double win over Northwestern yesterday,

Special to The Daily
CHICAGO-Wolverine Ed Gag-
nier, captain-elect of next winter's
'M' gym team, placed sixth in the
parallel bar finals of the National
AAU Gytnnastics Meet here last
night.
Armando Vega, Penn State star
and United States Olympic team
member, gained first in the event,
as he did in the still rings and long
horse, too.
Jack Beckner of Los Angeles
Turner was the outstanding man
of the meet, as he led his team to
victory by winning the all-around
title. Gagnier and many of the
other collegiate gymnasts com-
peted unattached, but the major-

ity were competing for some AAU
Club.
The only multiple winner of the
evening besides Vega was Jeff
Austin of the U.S. Navy. He won
both the tumbling and trampoline.
