• Michigan (27-15, 9-6 Big Ten) retained a share of first place in the conference with the win. The win gave Michigan the series win two games to one and a tie with Northwestern (9-6) for first. OSU drops into a three-way tie for third place with Minnesota and Purdue.

Rich Maloney recorded his 550th career win as a head coach in 15 seasons, the last eight seasons at U-M.

• Senior RF Nick Urban, who is hitting .284 (38-for-134), was 1-for-2 with a two-run homer and a walk. Urban's second-inning homer, his second of the season, gave U-M a 2-0 lead and proved to be his third game-winning RBI of the campaign. Urban had two 'gamers' in the OSU series and he has seven in his Wolverine career. Urban has five career home runs.

• Junior RHP Tyler Burgoon (6-2, 3.08 ERA, eight saves) made his third appearance of the weekend and got a game-ending double play to close out the win and earn his eighth save of the season. He was 0-1 with two saves in the OSU series.

• Burgoon's eight saves pull him into a tie for third on U-M's single-season saves list with Michael Powers (2008) and Todd Marion (1990 and 1993). The record is 10 saves shared by Marion (1992) and Tyler Steketee (1997)

• Burgoon leads the Wolverines in appearances (18), strikeouts (61), wins (6) and saves (8) this season.

• Burgoon is 4-1 with all eight of his saves in his 15 appearances since moving back to the bullpen after the North Carolina series at the start of March. He was 2-1 in three starts to open the season.

• Burgoon has 17 career saves to snap his tie for second on Michigan's career saves list with John Arvai (16 saves, 1993-96). The record is 32 saves by Todd Marion (1990-93).

• Senior 1B Mike Dufek, who is hitting .318 (55-for-173), was 2-for-4 with a double and a homer. Dufek's team-leading 17th double of the season was U-M's first hit of the game and he scored on Nick Urban's homer. Dufek added a solo homer in the sixth inning for insurance.

• Dufek has 43 doubles, 23 homers and 128 runs batted in in his Michigan career.

• Junior OF Ryan LaMarre, who is hitting .450 (36-for-80), was 1-for-4 with a single and a run-scoring grounder in the win. LaMarre has hits in 21 of his last 23 games.

• Freshman SS Derek Dennis, who is hitting .269 (35-for-130), was 1-for-3 and scored a run, but he earned his note with his glove, posting five putouts and five assists and combining with 1B Mike Dufek on a 6-3 groundball double play to end the game. For the series, Dennis handled 21 chances (nine putouts, 12 assists) without an error and participated in three double plays.

• Sophomore RHP Brandon Sinnery (4-0, 3.24 ERA) pitched 5.1 innings, allowing seven hits and two runs as he collected his fourth win of the season. Sinnery is 6-2 in his U-M career.
