The Michigan baseball team tied up its weekend series against Purdue on Saturday afternoon, winning 6-4.

A four-run rally in the bottom of the second proved to be the only offensive spark of the game for the Wolverines, who only scored one more run in the following innings. Sophomore designated hitter Coley Crank led the Michigan batters with two RBIs, followed by redshirt junior second baseman Anthony Toth, senior catcher Chris Berset and sophomore third baseman John Lorenz, each of whom brought in one run.

Freshman outfielder Patrick Biondi also contributed to Michigan’s offense, tying the record number of bases stolen for a freshman Wolverine. Tallying his 19th of the season, Biondi tied record-holder Bruce Fox from 1955.

Although Michigan struggled to put more runs on the board after the second inning, it stayed strong defensively. Redshirt freshman pitcher Bobby Brosnahan and junior right-hander Tyler Burgoon lead the Wolverines on the mound, only allowing two runs each. This kept a comfortable advantage for Michigan throughout the game.

The Wolverines will look to take the series with a win tomorrow. The first pitch will be thrown at noon at the Ray Fisher Stadium.
