Softballers sweep
Central, 5-1, 6-3

by Rod Loewenthal
Daily Baseball Writer
Michigan baseball coach Bill
Freehan might have hit the jackpot
yesterday when the Wolverines de-
eated Detroit-Mercy, 5-1. Not only
id they win a well-executed game,
but sophomore Eric Heintschel may
have pitched his way into the fourth
spot in Michigan's starting rota-
tion.
Pitching in relief of winner
Russell Brock, Heintschel went
two innings, giving up one hit while
walking two and striking out one.
The transfer from Air Force was the
whird of four Michigan pitchers used
in the game. Freehan started Jason
Pfaff to give his ace some midweek
work and let Todd Marion close.
"Their pitching was excellent,"
Titan coach Bob Miller said. "They
all threw very well."
Michigan also came through
with some clutch hitting; Dan Ruff
went 2 for 4 on the day with a single
'and a double, while collecting three
RBIs.
"He's a tremendous fastball hit-
ter," Miller said. "Both of his hits
came with two outs."

With a single in the fifth,
Wolverine Scott Timmerman
stretched his hitting streak to seven
games. The second baseman has now
hit in 18 of his last 19 games and in
all but two games the entire season.
The Wolverines held a 2-1 lead
late into the ballgame until they
came up with two runs in the top of
the seventh. All-American third
baseman Tim Flannelly and desig-
nated hitter Nate Holdren produced
timely hits to put Michigan safely
ahead, 4-1. With the hit, Flannelly
picked up Michigan career RBI No.
116 to put him only 10 away from
eighth-place Chris Sabo.

Back in the days when Daniel
Boone and his coonskin-capped
cronies were cruising through the
Midwest, someone decided to estab-
lish a small town by the name of
Mt. Pleasant. This pioneer certainly
had remarkable foresight, for the
Michigan softball team paid a
rather pleasant visit there yesterday.
The Wolverines (2-2 in the Big
Ten, 15-9 overall) swept a double-
header against the Chippewas of
Central Michigan, 3-1, and 6-3.
"We are very happy to win this
pair of games with Central
Michigan," Michigan coach Carol
Hutchins said. "If you look at the
history book against the Chippewas,
we haven't done well."
Indeed, with yesterday's victo-
ries the Wolverines now trail the
all-time series, 20-16. Shortstop
Bonnie Tholl started things quickly
when she rapped the game's first
pitch down the left field line for a
double. After advancing to third on
a ground out by Julie Cooper, she
scored on a sacrifice fly by Patti
Benedict.
Michigan scored twice more in
the third inning, once on Karla
Kunnen's successful suicide squeeze.

In the ninthi
Wolverines added an
on a Ruff double.

inning,

the
run

That was all winning pitcher
Andrea Nelson would need, as she
held the Chippewas to one seventh-
inning run, permitting only four
hits.
"Andrea Nelson did a very good
job for us," Hutchins said. "She has
been pitching strongly in both
starts and in relief."
The second match imitated its
predecessor, with the Wolverines
holding onto their early lead. CMU
did provide a scare with a three-run
third inning to come within one, but
first-year pitcher Julie Clarkson
closed the door. Juniors Shelley
Bawol and Heather Lyke each con-
tributed two hits.
The team's batting had been a
concern after a weak offensive
showing against Indiana last week-
end. But Hutchins was confident
things would turn around, and they
did somewhat, as Michigan pounded
out a total of 15 hits in the twin-
bill.
"We hit the ball pretty well and
were able to string hits together in
both games," Hutchins said.
Add quality pitching and one-er-
ror fielding to this formula, and it
makes for quite a pleasant day.

"Both teams played real well,"
Miller said. "It was the kind of
ballgame that the fans love; it was
only two hours long and it was
warm out."
The Wolverines hope for the
same weather and same outcome
when the two squads meet again to-
day at Fisher Stadium.

Michigan ace Jason Pfaff pitched three scoreless innings yesterday
yielding two hits while striking out two as Michigan beat Detroit, 5-1.

After winning its last three
games, the Michigan men's lacrosse
team will play in Champaign for its
sectional tournament this weekend.
The Wolverines will face the club
teams from Indiana, Purdue and
Illinois in a tournament that will
help decide the seeding for the, sea-
son-end conference championship.
The competition will provide
the Wolverines with an opportunity
to show the rest of the Big Ten club

teams their true colors. It was but a
fortnight ago when they pumelled
Indiana in an exhibition game, 13-3.
"We are out to prove to the rest
of the Big Ten," said captain Marc
Silbergeld, a member of last year's
championship team, "that we are the
defending champions and it's going
to take a lot to take it away from
us."
