The loss Saturday to Northwestern snapped the Wolverine winning streak at 10 games and knocked Michigan out of first place in the conference. Minnesota (7-2, .778) remains in first place by getting weathered out twice so far this weekend, while Nebraska (10-4, .714) used a doubleheader sweep at Purdue Saturday to move into second place and Michigan (7-3, .700) dropped to third.
Freshman 2B/RHP Jacob Cronenworth, who is hitting .333 (44-for-132), was 1-for-3 with a fifth-inning single, the first U-M hit.
Cronenworth, who has a four-game hitting streak, has hits in 20 of his last 21 games, and he has reached base in a team season-high 21 consecutive games.
Sophomore LF Zach Zott, who is hitting .315 (29-for-92), was 1-for-3 with an eighth-inning single, and he collected his 11th stolen base of the season.
Zott is hitting .361 (13-for-36) in Big Ten play.
Sophomore DH Kevin White, who is hitting .277 (28-for-101), was 1-for-3 with an eighth-inning bunt single, and he collected his ninth stolen base of the season.
Today marked the program's first-ever game at Wrigley Field and first in a Major League Baseball stadium since the Wolverines took on San Diego State at PETCO Park on March 10, 2007. This season, Michigan's game against Yale on March 26 scheduled to be played at Citi Field was rained out. The Big Ten Tournament will be held at Target Field, home of the Minnesota Twins.
