well. He (Turner) is a great
player," said Winter.

NU Sweeps Oklahoma Series
To Keep
By Hal Brown
Nebraska kept their Big
Eight baseball championship
hopes alive with a sweep of
a three-game series from
Oklahoma by scores of 4-3,
2-1, and 5-4.
Two of the victories came
on clutch hits by Leroy Zen
tic and Ely Churchich, one in
the last inning and one in
extra innings.
The wins gave Nebraska a
9-4 record in the conference
and a chance to overtake the
league leading Oklahoma
State Cowboys. Oklahoma
State lost two of three eames
to Iowa State leaving the
Cowboys with a 15-3 record.
If Nebraska sweens their
last series of the season
from Kansas State Friday
and Saturday and Missouri
wins all three games in its
series with Oklahoma State,
then the Huskers would be
Big Eight Champions.
In the ooeninff same of the
series. Fridav. Nebraska tied
the score at three all in the
8th inning. Catcher Ely
Churchich led off with a
single to left and advanced to
second on a bunt single by
Ken Ruisinger. Jerry McKay
went into run for Churchich
at this point and the strategy
pain otf as McKay raced
home, all the wav from sec
ond, on an infield single by
Doug Siler.
Jerry Harris opened the
9th for the Huskers hv pet.
ting his second double of the
day to leu Held. Bob Semin
moved him to third with a
perfect sacrifice bunt and
&emin was safe at first on
Catcher Don Nipp's throwing
error. Zentic then came
through with a long single to
leit center scoring Hams
with the winning run.
After giving up a run in
the opening frame, Husker
moundsman Bob Gleason
settled down to win his first
uaSJ JL, how
Title Hopes Alive
game of the season against
five defeats in the opening
game of Saturday's double
header. Gleason retired the
last 13 Cowboy batters to
face him and only one of the
last 20 to face him reached
Gleason didn't allow a walk
and struck out four in pitch
ing the three-hitter as the
Huskers took a 2-1 win.
Ely Churchich delivered a
towering 380 foot home run
scoring Semin ahead of him
in the 8th inning of the sched
uled 7-inning nightcap, Sat
urday. Semin reached base
on a single to right.
The Sooners had taken a
4-3 lead in the top of the 8th
on a triple by Bob Hembree
scoring Pitcher Kenny Teel
from first. Teel reached first
on a fielders choice.
