For the Daily
It seems like Northwestern has in-
vaded the Michigan athletic campus.
Almost every Wolverine team has
played a Wildcat squad this past week,
which ends Saturday with the big game
at Michigan Stadium.
Next week the Michigan men's golf
team gets its chance at the Windon
Classic in Chicago . This tournament
fields twelve schools including some of
the NCAA's best teams.
Along with the Wolverines and the
Wildcats are golfing power houses
Stanford, Florida, Texas A&M and Duke.
Stanford features one of the best indi-
vidual golfers in the country, sophomore
Tiger Woods. Woods is the defending
two-time amateur golf champion.
This year's Classic is formatted dif-
ferently than the normal collegiate
invitationals. Instead of playing on
only one course, the teams will play
two challenging venues. Monday, the
Wolverine golfers will attack the Royal
Melbourne course for thirty-six gruel-
ing holes. On Tuesday, the competition
moves to the Kemper Lakes, a PGA
stop for the Kemper Open, course for
another 18 holes.
However, the Wolverines have not
been playing at the same level as the
Stanfords and the Floridas. If Michigan
wants to gain respect around the coun-
try, it will have to play to its full poten-
tial. The men's golf coach, Jim Carras,
knows his players are better than their
"I'm disappointed in the team's per-
formance this year," Carras said. "The
players haven't played to their full po-
Last year, the Wolverines played
much better and advanced to the NCAA
regional final. With returning stars from
last year's squad, the season should be
"The performance of the team does
not reflect our ability. We're off to a
rough start and I know we can play
better," Carras said.
The success ofthe golf team depends
on the performance of its five-man ro-
tation. However, there has been no set
rotation this season. Coach Carras is
still experimenting with the line up un-
til there is a cohesive, consistent unit.
One stand out player for the Wolver-
ines is senior captain Chris Brockway.
He has been vital to the team through
his performance and his leadership. Both
of these qualities will be necessary for
the Wolverines success this next week.
Joining Brockway will be joined an-
Jim Leyritz got his revenge against
the Seattle Mariners.
Leyritz hit a two-run homer in the
15th inning Wednesday night, ending
the longest game in AL playoff history
and giving the New York Yankees a 7-
5 victory and a 2-0 lead in the best-of-
Leyritz, wvho vowed retaliation after
he was hit in the face by Seattle's Randy
Johnson on May 31, was hit again in
this game after Ruben Sierra and Don
Mattingly connected for consecutive
home runs in the sixth inning.
He got even by homering on a 3-1
pitch from Tim Belcher with one out
after a walk to Pat Kelly.
Ken Griffey hit his third home run of
the series, tying an AL playoff record,
for a 5-4 in the 12th. Sierra tied it with
a two-out double, with the potential
winning run thrown out at the plate.
Belcher, who pitched 2 2-3 innings,
was expected to start Game 3 at the
Kingdome if the Mariners had won.
Instead, Johnson will pitch Friday on
three days' rest for the second time this
The game lasted 5 hours, 13 minutes,
and ended in a light mist - the longest
game by time in postseason history.
Indians 4, Red Sox 0
Orel Hershiser and the playoffs are
still a perfect mix.
Making his first postseason appear-
ance since he won the clinching game
of the 1988 World Series, Hershiser
gave up three hits in 7 1-3 scoreless
innings as the Cleveland Indians beat
Boston 4-0 Wednesday night for a 2-0
lead in the AL playoffs.
Eddie Murray homered and Omar
Vizquel doubled home two runs for the
Indians, who need only one more win in
the best-of-5 series. It continues Friday
in Boston, with the Red Sox sending
knuckleball pitcher Tim Wakefield
against Cleveland's Charles Nagy.
The 37-year-old Hershiser boosted
his record to 5-0 with a save and a 1.52
ERA in nine career postseason appear-
ances, eight of them starts. He was the
MVP of both the NL playoffs and the
World Series for Los Angeles in 1988.
The Red Sox lost their 12th consecu-
tive postseason game dating back to
Bill Buckner's infamous error in Game
6 of the 1986 World Series, a string that
was extended by a heartbreaking 5-4,
13-inning loss in Tuesday night's series
Braves 7, Rockies 4
The Atlanta Braves are going home
with a commanding lead in their NL
Fred McGriff and Mike Mordecai hit
RBI singles in the ninth inning, and two
more runs scored on an error as the
Atlanta Braves beat the Colorado
Rockies 7-4 Wednesday night and took
a 2-0 series lead.
Larry Walker's three-run homer and
Andres Galarraga's RBI single had
given Colorado a 4-3 lead going to the
ninth, overcoming a pair of solo homers
by Marquis Grissom, who increased his
series total to three.
Reds 5, Dodgers 4
The Cincinnati Reds took advantage
of Giveaway Night at Dodger Stadium.
The Reds, handed scoring chances
and runs all evening, beat the Los An-
geles Dodgers 5-4 Wednesday to take a
2-0 lead in their NL playoff series.
Eric Karros homered twice for the
Dodgers, who outhit Cincinnati 14-6.
But Los Angeles could not overcome a
key error, a botched pitchout and three
walks that led to the eventual winning
run. The Dodgers also lost right fielder
