NOTRE DAME, Ind. - The University of Notre Dame baseball team scored early and often as it capitalized on Michigan errors to dominate the Wolverines in Ann Arbor, 9-1, and run its non-conference win streak to eight games.
With the win, the Irish (12-20) snapped a four-game losing streak against the rival Wolverines as they secured their first win in Ann Arbor since a 9-3 victory 50 years ago on April 28, 1964 (As a side note, the two teams didn't play in Ann Arbor from 1978 to 2010). The eight-run cushion was the biggest margin of victory against Michigan (14-18-1) since a 9-1 win at a neutral site May 1, 2001.
"We were 1-4 against them since I've gotten here and the loss earlier in the year to them was tough so this was an important win for us tonight," said first baseman Blaise Lezynski. "We came out aggressive and took advantage of opportunities."
