Michigan claimed victory in the first-ever meeting with the Rams. Although they did not meet, both U-M and Fordham played in the six-team NCAA Mideast Regional hosted by Georgia Tech in 1987. The Wolverines faced Dartmouth, Rider and Georgia in that regional.
Michigan's victory extends its winning streak against NCAA opponents at the Tradition Field Sports Complex to 12 games. The Wolverines have not lost to a college team in Port St. Lucie, Fla., since falling to Illinois-Chicago on Feb. 29, 2004.
Senior/junior 2B Anthony Toth collected his seventh multi-hit game of the season. It was the 26th multiple-hit game of his U-M career.
Toth has three or more hits five times as a Wolverine. Today marked the first time he hit two doubles in a game.
Sophomore DH Coley Crank was a home run away from the cycle after doubling in the third, singling in the fifth and hitting a triple in the seventh.
Crank's two-run triple in the seventh inning proved to be the game-winning RBI, his second career 'gamer' for the Wolverines.
Sophomore/freshman OF Kevin Krantz hit his first career home run in the third inning. Krantz added a single in the fourth inning and was 2-for-3 for his first career multi-hit game.
Junior RHP Tyler Burgoon recorded his first save of the season and the 10th of his career. He moved into a tie for eighth place on U-M's career saves list, matching with Derek Feldkamp (10, 2003-05) and Mike Ignasiak (10, 1985-88).
Sophomore 3B John Lorenz collected his sixth multi-hit game of the season and the 12th of his U-M career.
Former U-M pitcher and current Mets farmhand Michael Powers (2005-08) was on hand and took in part of the game between spring training drills.
