Recap |  Box Score

• Michigan's series with Western Illinois was moved to Nicolay Field on the campus of Adrian College due to weather and field conditions at the Wilpon Complex.

• The first game of the doubleheader was a scheduled seven-inning contest. The second game was a nine-inning game.

• Freshman Evan Hill allowed just one hit in seven innings in the 6-1 win in the opener. It was Michigan's first one-hitter since March 24, 2012, when the Wolverines beat IPFW, 4-2. In that game, Brandon Sinnery, Trent Szkutnik, Travis Smith and James Bourque combined on the one-hitter.

• Hill now is 3-1 on the year with a 2.21 ERA. His 21 strikeouts are second on the team, and he has U-M's lone complete game.

• Freshman Travis Maezes reached base for the 20th straight game in the opener, driving in a run in the second on a single. His streak was snapped in the nightcap.

• Junior Michael O'Neill had his 13th multi-hit game of the year in the opener. He is now hitting .383 with nine doubles and 13 RBI this season.

• Sophomore Zach Zott had three hits in the nightcap. That is a season and career high for the outfielder.

• Freshman Jacob Cronenworth had three hits in the nightcap. It is his seventh multi-hit game of 2013. He also pitched the final two innings, striking out a batter and allowing a hit and no runs.
