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.
Michigan baseball coach Erik Bakich believes that Johnny Slater’s best days are ahead of him.
Of course, it’s hard to have a better day than the senior center fielder had Tuesday against Michigan State, in which he went 4-for-4 with four doubles, four runs batted in and a stolen base. But it hasn’t been only one game – the source of Bakich’s optimism about Slater’s future has been obvious all year.
