ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Sophomore Zach Zott (Lake Orion, Mich./Lake Orion) belted a two-out, two-run home run in the bottom of the eighth inning to give the University of Michigan baseball team a 4-3 win over Iowa Sunday afternoon (May 5) at the Wilpon Complex, home of Ray Fisher Stadium.
Zott's blast gave the win on the mound to senior/junior Logan McAnallen (DeWitt, Mich./DeWitt), who went eight innings, striking out a career-high nine batters. He allowed seven hits and three runs while walking just one while improving to 3-2 on the season. He made way for sophomore James Bourque (Ann Arbor, Mich./Huron), who struck out a batter and allowed a hit for his first save of the season.
The two teams traded zeroes through the first four innings, before the Hawkeyes broke through in the fifth for three runs, highlighted by a two-run double from Kris Goodman. Michigan had five hits through the first six innings, but only one runner -- freshman Travis Maezes (Ann Arbor, Mich./Pioneer) in the first -- got as far as second base. That changed in the seventh, as Zott walked to open the frame. Iowa's Ricky Sandquist then hit junior Cole Martin (Bay City, Mich./John Glenn) and walked sophomore Kyle Jusick (Portage, Mich./Portage Central) to load the bases. Iowa got a double play groundout, but sophomore pinch hitter Kevin White (Charlottesville, Va./St. Anne's-Belfield) singled to the gap in right to score two and cut Iowa's lead to 3-2.
In the eighth, Hawkeye reliever Nick Hibbing retired the first two Wolverines, but walked freshman Jacob Cronenworth (St. Clair, Mich./St. Clair). Zott then hit Hibbing's 1-1 pitch over the wall in rightfield for his third roundtripper of the season.
Maezes led the Michigan offense with three hits, while White and Zott drove in a pair.
Michigan continues its eight-game homestand this Tuesday night (May 7) against Eastern Michigan in a completion of a suspended game from April 17. EMU leads Michigan 4-1 with one out in the bottom of the third inning.
