Poste Denver University, 10-5 Bears End Year at .500 By JIM EAKLE Tribun* Sports Writer It was a beautiful day for University of Northern Colorado baseball Friday. Not only was the weather superb, but lie Bears ended a frustrating season on a bright note, posting a 10-5 win over Denver University. Things just couldn't go wrong for the loose and relaxed Grizzly nine. The win was an important one as it ended the UNC season at .500 with a 13-13 record. Every Bear in the lineup got at least one hit and most Iruns. A dazzling snare of a long were battered hard by the fly ball by Scavarda in the wo-out diving catch of a line drive by Granlz in the ninlh saved two more tallies. DU Strands 13 Showing the pressure pitching of McDonald, the Pioneers left Brunz all hit shots that were important of all, three seniors ended their career at Greeley in grand style. Big Stv Ends Career Most notable was third baseman Tom Severtson who worked his way from a third-string frosh catcher in 1967 to one of the best hitters in the region in just three years. "Mr. Bigg", as his teammates call h i m , laced his third home run of the year and added two more RBI's to his league-leading total of 30. He made two excellent blocks of "sizzling" ground balls to add "frosting to the cake." Senior Rich McDonald ended his career as the winningest Bear hurler in three years with a 6-2 record. He gave up 13 hits, struck out two and walked four. Senior outfielder Russ Hyder collected a home run sparking a big five-run UNC first inning, driving in two runs. These three players will be missed by the Bears next season. Severlson was co-team captain. Bob Cooper Stars It wasn't an all-senior day at Jackson Field by any means. A junior by the name of Bob Cooper bashed three hits, a homer and a triple, to drive in three runs lending the Bear b a t t i n g iittack. The Bear bat spree started In the first inning as they push ed across five lallies to put the game nut of reach. In the big stanza Daryl Grantz, Jerry Scavarda and Cooper rapped singles, Mike Haskett hit a double and Hyder unloaded with his two-run blast. McDonald held the Pioneers In check until the third when they scored once on two walks and a single by Skip Korty. McDonald breezed along until the seventh when the Pioneers rallied for two runs and in the f i f t h when they got two. The righthander was hit for many raflies during the encounter but he spaced them and got the outs when he needed them. He was aided by a fine Bear defensive game.

The Pioneers didn't get one extra base hit during the game.

Reliever Bromann fur DU was the hurler that beat the Bears in Den ver-2-0 earlier in the year. In that game UNC's Bob Taylor and Bromann battled in one ol for most pitching battles this caught. BEAR HIGHLIGHTS: The Pioneers are now 19-10 and are preparing for the District Seven NCAA tournament wilh Weber State next week in Denver.

DeVicenzo Carries 1-Stroke Lead To 3rd Colonial Round By MIKE COCHRANE Associated Press Sports Writer FORT WORTH, Tex. (AP) Roberto De Vicenzo, professing to be a "little chicken" and two other happy-go-lucky swingers look a one-shot lead into the share of the 1968 Masters championship. Claiming a "bingo" for each one-putt, the 1957 Colonial champion fashioned a 33-33--66 to go with an opening 70 and dropped birdie putts of 1, 6, 25 third round today of the $125,000 and 25 feel. He missed a 12-fnot- Colonial National Invitation Golfjer at 18 to miss the undisputed Tournament. De Vicenzo swept home with a sparkling, four-under-par 66 Friday to move into a 36-hole deadlock with struggling Lee Trevino and breezy Bob Smith at 136, lead. Trevino, who shared the first- round lead with faltering Gary Player at 66, matched par and proclaimed: "I'm satisfied to be alive, four under Colonial's testy par- really--I'm satisfied wilh 70 and 70 layout. |if the weather keeps up, two I think I am a little chicken'.more 70s will win." today--I played too safe," smiled De Vicenzo, 37, the affable Argentine whose incorrect Two birdies offset two bogeys for the Texas sharpshooter, who said he abandoned his driver for Tom scorecard stripped him of .Belanger sacrificed and Frank 'IRobinson was given an intentional pass, filling the bases. Boog Powell then forced Robinson at second and when Dave Nelson fired the relay to first baseman Mike Epstein, the Senators began converging on relief pilcher Horacio Pina to congrat-j ,, ulate him on the apparent" streak-snapping victory. But Kunkel, after giving the out sign at first, saw Epstein juggle the one-bounce throw and quickly changed his call . . . while the ball was rolled toward Ihe mound. May had crossed the plate a| an iron on many tees because iof the blustery winds "just trying to keep the ball where 1 could work it." Smith attributed his surprising sucess to a 12-year old good Luck Charm and an altered putting style--cross-handed--and suggested that "maybe they'll start me one-pult." For the young at heart it was a grand day, but not so for Player, the South African ace whose game willed in (he wind, and Ben Hogan, who had lough going Friday on the famed "Hogan's Alley" course he helped popularize.
