Definitely need him back to early season form. Michigan ain't losing this weekend
I been hoping that what Shay did last Sunday would provide a spark for the pitching staff. Sort of a wakeup call - Get your stuff together and get back to your best efforts. Something like that.

Or maybe I'm just still amazed at how he was spinning it last week.

Replay would be nice. I thought Anderson's ball was foul although it's hard to tell with the picture quality. Oh well, 4-0 is nice.

I'm liking 6-0 in the middle of the 2nd. This one has mercy rule written all over it.
It’s definitely great to grab a big lead early to crush the opponents’ spirits. I doubt the mercy rule is in play today, though. It’s a single game with no travel afterward.

Michigan/Minnesota scoreless T 8th
The Minnesota live stats are frozen. But both Michigan's and the Big Ten's websites list it as a 2-0 Michigan win. It appears the Gophers held the Wolverines to 2 hits and 0 runs through 8 innings but lost. Rats.

Big for Hroch today, nice to see Schreiber fill up the zone and our first look in 2021 of Bradford. Rumor is he's throwing really well in midweek scrimmages. Offense, ya, dudes were locked in right away today.

On to Sunday for a sweep.

Really? I'm still watching it live (?) and Michigan just hit a 2 run homer, top of the 9th.

Hmmm. Michigan's website has removed the score but it's still on the Big Ten's. Does the Michigan SID have a time machine but let the result slip?

Groundout to 1st for the 2nd out brings Michigan's runner home from 3rd. 4-0 Wolves.

Minny has left a lot on base including bases loaded bottom of the 8th.

NW beat Indiana 8-5. Hoosiers now slip to 2 1/2 games back. Iowa in 4th at 3 games back and OSU (slouching towards .500) drops to 5th - 4 1/2 back.
