ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- The University of Michigan baseball team's game against Eastern Michigan Wednesday afternoon (April 17) has been halted due to lightning in the area. Michigan trails Eastern, 4-1, with one out in the bottom of the third inning. The game will be resumed Tuesday night (April 23) at 6 p.m. at Oestrike Stadium Ypsilanti, Mich. Following the completion of this game, the teams will meet in a seven-inning affair.
Senior/junior Logan McAnallen (DeWitt, Mich./DeWitt) retired the first two Eagles, but lightning and heavy rains swept Ann Arbor, causing a 1:47 rain delay. The game resumed at 6:25 p.m. with Michigan scoring the game's first run. Freshman Travis Maezes (Ann Arbor, Mich./Pioneer) doubled with one out, went to third on a wild pitch and scored on a passed ball. EMU tied the game in the top of second and scored three times in the top of the third. Senior Patrick Biondi (Woodhaven, Mich./Divine Child) had a 1-2 count with one out in the third when lightning again was detected, halting the game until next week.
Michigan next heads to Evanston, Ill., for a three-game Big Ten series with Northwestern starting Friday afternoon (April 19) at 3 p.m. CDT.
