OMAHA, Neb. -- The University of Michigan baseball team was one-hit by a trio of Indiana pitchers and allowed five runs in the seventh inning in a 5-0 loss on Thursday night (May 22) in game eight of the 2014 Big Ten Tournament at TD Ameritrade Park.
Michigan now moves into the loser's bracket and will face eighth-seeded Iowa Friday night (May 23) at 7:30 p.m. Indiana moves into the Saturday game and will face either Illinois or Michigan State with those teams needing to beat the Hoosiers twice to advance to the championship game.
Freshman Brett Adcock (Kawkawlin, Mich./Bay City Western) and Indiana's Christian Morris both had no-hitter's going after five innings of play. Indiana broke through in the top of the sixth with a leadoff single from Tim O'Connor. Indiana put runners on first and second and no one out in that inning, but Adcock induced a fly and got two big strikeouts to end the threat. Michigan broke Morris' no-hitter with a two-out single from sophomore Jacob Cronenworth (St. Clair, Mich./St. Clair) in the sixth.
Indiana scored five runs in the top of the seventh inning off five hits. Dustin DeMuth doubled to left to open the frame. A flyout moved him to third, and Will Nolden's infield single back to the pitcher scored the game-winning run. Nick Ramos reached on an infield single and two runs scored on Casey Rodrigue's triple to right. Kyle Schwarber then hit his 11th home run of the season to make it 5-0 Hoosiers.
Adcock tied a career high with seven strikeouts, going 6.2 innings and allowing five hits and four runs with three walks. Morris allowed just the one hit in seven innings, striking out four and walking two.
