Michigan Baseball Wins Big 10 Tournament

Michigan took the Big 10 Tournament Championship Title tonight at Ray Fisher Stadium to go along with the Regular Season Championship. The Wolverines fell behind 2-0 and things were not looking good as Michigan stranded 10 runners through the first five innings before finally scoring a run on a Kevin Cislo double. They would tie the game up as Ryan Lamarre hit his second career home run, his first ever at Ray Fischer Stadium. Lamarre's blast sailed over the fence in straightaway center field, passing directly over the 395 marker. Michigan would then take the lead on a wild pitch as Cislo scored the eventual game-winner from third.

Eric Katzman struggled, lasting just 2.2 innings but Tyler Burgoon took WCBN Player of the Game honors as he stepped in with 4.1 innings of scoreless relief work, picking up his second win of the season. Michael Powers then came on to pitch a scoreless 8th and 9th innings, getting his seventh save of the season and his third in the past three nights.

Powers was named the tournament's most outstanding player as he worked two scoreless innings in each of the past three nights, picking up three saves. Joining Powers on the all-tournament team were Chris Fetter, Zach Putnam, and Adam Abraham.

Michigan will likely host a regional next weekend at Ray Fisher Stadium. The tournament field and regional hosts will be announced on Monday.

Dear Big 10 Network: Please A) get the names right. It was RYAN Lamarre, not RAY Lamarre that hit the home run and B) STOP CALLING US THE WOLVES! We are the WOLVERINES!!!

Here are the BTN's highlights anyways:

Check out the photos on the website for the baseball team. You'll see a photo of the ALL TOURNAMENT TEAM. I believe you left Kevin Cislo off your list.
