Baseball's Glines, Maezes Named Top 100 by Class in Perfect Game Rankings
An in-depth preview of the 2015 squad, which is led by third-year coach Erik Bakich. The season kicks off Friday, Feb. 13, at Long Beach State.
Travis Maezes' three-run double in the fourth inning gave Michigan the lead, and solid pitching and defense preserved the Wolverines' first Big Ten win of the year, 4-3 at Indiana.
Evan Hill and Erik Bakich are interviewed in this episode of Inside Michigan Baseball as U-M hosts Iowa this weekend in the regular-season finale series (May 2, 2013).
U-M came from behind to double up Michigan State, 6-3.
