Fast forward a month and a half and Michigan is in the midst of a 20 game win streak after sweeping Big Ten opponent Penn State over the weekend. Now everything seems to be working and the inconsistencies have turned into strengths. The Wolverines now are winning in a variety of ways instead of losing.
Junior centerfielder Jonathan Engelmann opened the scoring in the bottom of the first with an RBI double. Later that inning, Michigan gained a 3-0 lead off freshman slugger Jesse Franklin’s two-run shot, his team-leading fifth of the year. An at-bat later, sophomore outfielder Dominic Clementi lined his first career home run over the center field wall.
