Michigan Baseball beats Eastern on Walk-off Homer

Michigan struggled from the plate all day long against cross-county rivals? Eastern Michigan. Eastern carried a 3-2 lead into the bottom of the ninth when Jason Christian connected on his fourth home run of the season off the scoreboard in right to tie the score at 3. After a Leif Mahler walk, Nate Recknagel hammered a walk-off shot to almost the same spot as the Christian homer.

Mike Wilson was phenomenal for the Wolverines coming on with two outs in the fourth and the bases loaded. Wilson struck out Steve Bradshaw to end the inning. Wilson would go on to face the minimum in 5.1 innings of relief, picking up the win to improve to 2-3 on the year. Wilson struck out five and walked just one. His next strikeout will be number 100 for his career.

Baseball is back in action today against Eastern at 3:00 at Ray Fisher Stadium. They are offering free gatorade and massages starting at 2. Admission is free for students so everyone should take a study break and go check out the #21 team in the country!

Michigan Softball will be in action later on today as they also take on Eastern Michigan. First pitch for softball will be at 6:05 and can be heard on the sports stream.
