Good news friends, Michigan defeats CMU in a much closer game than the score suggests. Michigan was down early, but starting in the 6th inning, the Wolverines started to claw back. They finally broke through in the late innings to steal the game from Chippewas, showing just how complete of a team they really are. They even threw up a big 5 run inning to close out the game.
Michigan was lead by their leadoff-hitting second baseman who went 3 for 4 with a run and an RBI. They set the plate for the second hole left fielder to collect an RBI. Speaking of the left fielder, they also scored a pair of runs. One of those came off the bat of our monster 3-hole hitting outfielder who blasted a home run to left center.
Starting pitching went well for the Wolverines. The starter lasted 7 innings giving up only 2 runs (1 earned). Great start by the righty. The starter only gave up 3 hits, walked 2, and struck out 7. Great quality start, I can’t get enough of it.
Congrats to the Michigan softball team for retaining their winning poise over a vastly inferior CMU team.
