ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- The University of Michigan baseball team entered the seventh inning deadlocked with Bowling Green, before the Falcons broke a 4-4 tie with a pair of runs in the seventh in an eventual 7-4 Wolverine loss on Tuesday afternoon (April 22) at the Wilpon Complex, home of Ray Fisher Stadium.

The Falcons scored three runs in the first on a two-run double from Patrick Lancaster and an unearned run on a Wolverine throwing error. BGSU went up 4-0 after a U-M pickoff resulted in the runner from third crossing home plate.

Michigan came back to knot the game at four in the bottom of the third inning. Freshman Johnny Slater (Southfield, Mich./Southfield Lathrup) led off the frame with a single. He trotted home on classmate Trey Miller's (Lexington, Ky./Lexington Catholic) first career home run, a two-run blast to left. A hit-by-pitch and walk was followed with an RBI single from junior Jackson Glines (Coarsegold, Calif./Fresno City College). Freshman Carmen Benedetti (Grosse Pointe, Mich./South) brought in the fourth run of the inning with a single to center field.

Bowling Green took the lead for good in the seventh with the help off an RBI single from Jeremy Shay and a U-M throwing error. The Falcons added insurance in the ninth on a run-scoring single by T.J. Losby.

Miller was 3-for-4 with a pair of runs batted in for the Maize and Blue, while Glines had a pair of hits. The loss went to junior Donnie Eaton (Ann Arbor, Mich./Father Gabriel Richard) in relief. He allowed a run, struck out a batter and walked two in 1.1 innings. Sophomore Cam Wysocki (Ada, Mich./Forest Hills Central) struck out a pair and allowed two hits and a run in two innings. Freshman Brett Adcock (Kawkawlin, Mich./Bay City Western) started the game for Michigan. He allowed two hits, two earned runs and walked three in two innings.

Michigan opens a three-game Big Ten series against Nebraska this Friday (April 25) at the Wilpon Complex, home of Ray Fisher Stadium. First pitch is at 6 p.m. It is the second Kids Go Blue Club Day at Fisher Stadium and the first 250 fans will receive a mini Blue Spruce tree for Arbor Day. [ Promotions ]
