of luck combined with
a short period of real classy batting,
the University of Michigan baseball
nine defeated the Kentucky Wildcats
Saturday afternoon on Stoll Fleld by
piling up flvo runs in tho seventh inning, when the score was tied three
to three, thus making the final tally
which remained unchanged during the
remainder of the game stand 8 to 3.
This contest was the opening baseball game of the season, and was witnessed by a large number of fans.
At no one's hand can blame for defeat of Kentucky by Michigan be
placed, nor, indeed, is there any necessity for any radical criticism of
any member of the squad or anyone
connected with the team. Kentucky
was simply outclassed by Michigan,
the latter winning the game purely on
merit. Nor is it surprising that the
winners of the Western Conference
championship, coached by one as experienced as the former Chicago Cub
Coach, Lundgren, should have won the
game. The fact is that the Michigan
game was the first of the season;
was arranged differthat the line-uently from the usual order, and that
weather conditions had not permitted
regular outdoor practice for a period
just proceeding the contest.
That the contest was raggedly played is not to be denied, but it is a fact
that Michigan was faulty in this respect as well as Kentucky, and errors
of both teams should be attributed to
conditions before mentioned.
With the exception of the seventh
inning the race for points was neck
and neck. When Michigan slipped a
man around the diamond in the third
inning, Kentucky, not to be outdone,
did likewise, thus tying the score.
Fierce battling in the fourth inning
brought no results to either side, but
in the fifth and sixth innings, Michigan succeeded in adding a score each
period, only to have their Joy at gaining the lead cut short, for both Heber
and Zerfoss slipped over the plate
during the last half of the sixth, and
the old game was tied again. The
score stood 3 to 3.
Until the seventh inning Slomer and
Parks were the contending mounds-meto

him to be a pitcher of ability and a
Wildcat with barrels of fight in him.
The latter is the much touted twlrler
who led the Mlchiganders to the Conference championship last year and
was rewarded by being elected captain of the 1920 squad. Michigan's
coach saw fit in the sixth inning to
relieve Parks and send in Rozlcka.
Coach Gill also thought it best not to
work Slomer too much in this first
game of the season, so he sent in

seventh inning. Mlchin the
iganders were wicked with the stick
and Kentuckians were unusually slow
in fielding the ball. Several bad plays
were made, but if the players had
been able to play only errorless ball
they would not be in a class with collegiate players, so the fans excused

them for their errors with tho hope
that further practlco and better conditions would obliterate BUch playing
In the future.
The Kernel will not attempt at this
enrly period in tho season to offer
suggestions on the comparative abilities of tho members of tho squad,
nor to suggest to Coach Gill whero he
should place the various players, nor
take the exhibition of playing in Saturday's game as the best that the
team can do, but it firmly believes
that Coach Gill's team that lost only
three games last season can go
through the present schedule with as
good a record, if not a better one, regardless of the fact that tho 1920
schedule is stiffer than usual. And
losing to the Western Conference
champions by a score of 8 to 3 is a
satisfactory beginning to say the most.
