On paper, Purdue is a team that Michigan should be able to defeat in solid fashion. But at this point in the season, that means very little, as the Wolverines have scored just 18 runs and hit an anemic .205 in their last six contests.
One day after Jaskie’s gem, Rennard pitched a season-high seven innings and struck out eight Buckeyes – one shy of his season-best. But most importantly, the junior right-hander picked up his sixth win.
Johnny Slater's home run to lead off the sixth inning triggered an offensive avalanche, as the Wolverines scored four more runs in the frame to pull away from the Hoosiers and win the final game of the series.
