Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - May 4, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Iowa Plays With Confidence, Sweeps Northwestern Rhubarb Flares as Hawks Take Loop Top, 3-0, 6-2 By Schrader IOWA CITY—Coach Duane Banks watched with grim satisfaction as his Iowa baseball players all pitched in to help •spread the big tarpaulin over tin* infield on the Hawkeyes’ splendid new diamond. “This is a great bunch of Iuds,” he said. “They won’t let the Mig Ten title get away from them now.’’ The Hawkeyes had just finished executing Northwestern 3-0 and 6-2 in a battle of the teams that had shared the conference lead. Minnesota, which split with Iowa in their two-game scries, won two Friday and remained the biggest threat, only one game behind. Iowa met Wisconsin, which lost the pair to Minnesota Fri- Big Ten Baseball W L Pct GB low*    »    3    .750    ...    Intl Minn.    I    4    4*7    I    Mich. North.    7    5    .583    J    Wit.

CAMES SUNDAY 2—Purdue at Illinois Michiaan at Michigan State day. Then the Hawks have a week off from the Big Ten wars day, in a double header Satur-for semester tests. They finish with two each at Purdue and Illinois May 17-18. “Our team is playing with great confidence,” continued Banks, who coached Iowa to the Big Ten title and College World Series two years ago. “They feel they can beat anybody. “The other teams are going to prove they can beat us now. We have a great team effort. If we play like this, we should win two from Wisconsin Saturday.” “Iowa is the best team we’ve played,” said Coach George McKinnon, whose Northwestern team faced Minnesota in a twin bill Saturday at Minneapolis. The Northwestern coach, however, was irked at Umpire Bob Meyer, former Cedar Rapids Regis coach who now lives in Des Moines, for not ejecting Banks and outfielder Tom Hum, Cedar Rapids senior. Meyer called Hum out at second base in the fourth inning of the first game. Hum leaped up to remonstrate, and Banks rushed over to join him. He had to get between Hum and the umpire, and McKinnon claimed the two of them humped Meyer three times during the demonstration. “That umpire will ruin college baseball if he continues to let things happen that happened today,” McKinnon said. “He should have ejected both of them for the bumping.” “I shouldn’t criticize Big Ten umpires,” said Banks, “but that was a bad call and it cost us a run. I guess I told him (Meyer) that, but I figured if I was going to be run, at least I’d get in a whole paragraph instead of just a sentence.” The rhubarb didn't obscure the fact that Iowa’s Mark Fwell did a masterful pitching job, giving only two sickly singles in seven innings. Among the big crowd of 2,500 was his father, who came from Haddon Heights, N.J. Pastern Iowa players contributed heavily in Iowa’s twin wins. The Hawks got two runs in the fourth inning of the opener. Brian Jones singled, stole second and scored on hit. Then Hum was thrown out trying to take second. But Brad Trickey, former all-sports star from C.R. Jeff, tripled and scored on a single by Steve Stumpff of Norway. Singles by Tom Wessling of Atkins, Tom Hilinsky and Dave Marshal Iprovided an insurance run in the fifth. Stumpff was the only Hawk to get more Uian one hit. He had three singles off Kim Gir-kins. In the second game, Iowa jlumped off to a 1-0 lead on Hilim'ky’s prodigious homer in the first inning. After Northwestern went ahead 2-1 in the third, Iowa erupted for three in the third and finished up with singletons in the fifth and sixth. Hum was the HBI star of the Kennedy JV Downs Jefferson Linksmen Kennedy’s Dave Crosner shot a 41 for medalist honors to lead the Cougar junior varsity golfers to a 178-193 victory over Jefferson at Kilts Friday. nightcap, batting in three with a two run single and a sacrifice lly. Hilinsky, the designated hit tor because of ii pulled groin muscle, had a double in addition to his homer. Jones had a triple and Jon Brose of Fairfax (C H, Prairie) had a double. “Kven though we’re in first place alone,” said Hum, “we can’t afford to lose any. We have to win our hist six to be sure.” “Dave Marshall sure made* some big plays at third,” said Trickey. “lh* really makes things easier for me. I had a bad garni* (the second contest), making three errors. I believe I was playing the ball too close to me. I should have been extending my arms more on those ground balls.” “Ewell was terrific, couldn’t do anything wrong,” beamed Banks. “And Dave Marshall continues to make big plays so often that we tell him it’s just routine.” Lucky Breaks Eaker Win Let Feature Vercn Eaker Gazette Photo* bv John Mclvor /owa’s Tom Hum (101 of C.

Curt Hansen, the Dike pilot who won the first two features this year at The Downs, had his 1974 Laguna humming again and was hot on Eaker’s bumper to the checkered flag. “I saw Dake hold up his hand (indicating trouble), but I didn't know which way he or Walton would go,” said Eaker. “I decided the best thing to do was to stay under Walton. “I didn’t have any trouble getting by on the next lap when Kenny got a little crossed up. It was one of those races when I got lucky. I don’t think I would have won it if Dake hadn’t gone out’” Verlin also set fast time of 24.76 seconds during qualifying. so the victory couldn’t really be regarded as a fluke. “But I wasn’t running as well at the end of the race as I was earlier.” he explained. “The track really got hard and slick, especially around turn four, so I had to take it a little easy’” Walton, who is only in his scenic Boston field) goal attempts in the first ond year of late-model competi-the drivers    ll minutes.    tjon recovered quickly enough seat with full    court pressure    However, the    Celtics    ran    into    to keep a tight rein on third k ,rJ'*1 3 w^own w*^ a little trouble at that stage as place. the Milwaukee    Bucks for the    Dave Cowens,    who had    nine    Hounding out the top five National Basketball Association    points while    playing    against    were Red Dralle of Evansdale championship.    Abdul-Jabbar, p oked up his and Ed Sanger of Waterloo.
