Michigan defeats Eastern Michigan 31-5

Michigan Baseball and Softball rolled over Eastern Michigan by a combined 31-5

Michigan Baseball started off the afternoon with a 20-5 domination over Eastern Michigan. 23 players saw the field for Michigan, including a rare Ben Jenzen sighting in left field! Michigan's 20 runs came on 23 hits. Putnam, Recknagel, and Abraham the 3-4-5 hitters combined to go 8-12 with 10 RBIs. Recknagel and Oaks homered despite powerful winds blowing in from center.

Across the way at Alumni Field, Michigan Softball continued the onslaught beating Eastern 11-0 in a mercy-rule shortened 4.5 innings. Sam Findlay blasted her 14th homer of the season, a three-run shot to left in the third. With that home run, Findlay surpassed the 200 RBI mark for her career. Freshman Marley Powers provided the exclamation point with a towering grandslam to the bleachers in right.

Next up for baseball are games this weekend vs Michigan State. Friday is home at 6:30, Saturday is on the road, and Sunday is back home. Softball travels to Ohio State for games on Friday (6:30) and Saturday (1:00). We'll have those games for you on the stream. Highlights to come later...busy week with finals
