Twin Bill at Jackson Field UNC Plans Revenge Over SCSC ·' Tom Pelroff has jusl one plan for Saturday -- to win. ,,S^turday,.pelroff's University of Northern Colorado baseball team enlerlains Southern Colorado State, College for what amounts : to a "gel-even" doubleheaae'r.' Game time at Jackson Field is I p.m. SCSC /has (Victimized- the Stars t^jceMn'the past seven ·days. Last; Saturday, a ninth- inning rally boosted the Indians pasl.UNC, 7-6. Tuesday'night, SCS_C qsed .a ninlh-irining home ruri lo win-a'2-1 game. .Tuesday's, loss lo Southern Colorado was the third slraight One-run affair, for the Bears, 5'ho enter Saturday's twinbill wilh a 4-5 record. Last Monday, ·Colorado Slate's Larry Tarvcr hit a home Tun in the eighth lo give the Rams a 2-1 win. Four of UNC's five losses this season have been one-run 1-. fairs and that's enough to frustrate any coach or player, especially when the team 'is playing well. " 'Snake-Bitten' In Petroff's words, Ihe Bears feel "snake-bitlcn." He poinled out that Ihe Bears are getting good pitching but aren't hilling with the aulhority they can. "Before this started, we were gelling the hitting, but the pilching was shaky," he added. UNC pitching is hard to fault despite the three successive losses. Keith Lanning was pitching with a comfortable 6-2 lead whan an error got him in trouble Saturday night. Wlh Ihe score lied, 6-6, Pat McCoy came in with only a day's, rest and was tagged with the last- inning loss. Bruce Vaughn scattered half a dozen, CSU nils Monday, but third-inning unearned run led lo the loss. And Tuesday,. Bob Taylor pitched perhaps his besl game in two years in scattering tive hits and striking pul eight. Vaughn to'Start Pelroff said Wednesday that Vaughn will start in the first game 'Saturday. He'll probably face SCSC ace Mike Burba', whose knuckle ball held UNC lo four hits Tuesday night. In the second game, either Taylor or McCoy will get the call, with the other working in relief. Indian coach Tom Muhic has no! named a starter for the second game. Petroff plans to slick with (he same lineup, despite Ihe slump. The regular eight is hilling a respectable .262, paced by catcher Bob DoMco at .400. Dean Burchficld, the Bears' cleanup hitler, has a .333 average and righlficldcr Jeff Cheek is tile number three hitler at .314. Rounding out Hie lineup for the Bears will be Ron Holmes first, Dennis Ixxmida at second, Don Nicks at short, Rich Zeigler al third and Mike England in left. Bears Have High Hopes For Colorado Relays The University of Northern Colorado track squad, winner of Vh r fre consecutive outdoor £)eets,.-faces \ils- toughest competition" of'the season this week- .end in {he 48th annual' Colorado In'yitaliBrfal in Boulder. VThe/.Bears,' coming off lasl Ayeek.end's win : over Adams State, arid 'Southern Colorado, Mines, North Platfe Junior College, Northeastern Junior College, Regis, and Metro Slate. UNC coach Tim Benich expects the Bears to win points in the pole vault, .triple jump, high jump, sprints, and 'the relays. The meeting of standout pole vaullcrs Mike Wedman of CU and Van Davios of UNC probably won't materialize since Wedman is still recovering from a recent illness. Wedman is a 17-foot vaultcr for the Buffs, while Davies has set three records during the 1972 season. Davies' Records Davies' first came at Colorado Mines during the indoor season when he vaullcd 15-6 to set a new fieldhouse record. Since that meet, Davies has continued lo improve, witnessed .by his IG-SVi performance last :join a field of 13 teams compel-j week which set a new UNC and Mick Busch is injured, making Oetkin one of Ihe favorites. The" sprints and relays will! naturally be the highlight of the' meet with CU speedsters Cliff Branch and George Daniels (be feature attraction. UNC sprinters Kent Tompkins, Elmer Haynes, and · in particular Mick Busch have the university college 'division/ Sixty high school te'arns will also compete in the prep ' division to ' assure the largest field ever competing in the annual event. Colorado!;;' lallented Buffaloes are favored 'to win Ihe meet, but defending champioji Utah, Colorado-. Slate, .UNC, and Adams Stjs(e\ sboyld. w'iq'.their share of the events. IcqlieJe.'.enVries; include Western State', Southern .Colorado, Colorado College, Colo, Colorado-College, Colorado Jackson Field record, But the talent-rich Buffs also have several other vaullers who have cleared 1C' feet, making this one of Ihe meet's strongest events.' Triple jumper Hugo Jacobsmeyer has also sel a UNC record this year with a jump of 47-ilVi and should place high in this event ai CU. Merlin Oelkin should also be another place winner in the high jump. Against ASC and S o u t h e r n Colorado, Oelkin jumped G-7, his best of the year. High jumper Mike Hill of CU Van Davies improved their limes each week and will gain good experience runnning againsl the likes of Branch and Daniels. Lasl week against good competition Busch ran a S.7 in (he 100 yard dash and will join the Buft duo in taking aim on the relays record of 9.5. Branch has already run a 9.2 in the 100 and last week in the Texas Relays equalled his meet j record of 9.3. So, wilh Randy Schwarlz joining Haynes, Tompkins, and Busch on the 440 relay, the Bears have a good chance of finishing in Ihe top three in this event and lop five overall.
