From late last night #19 Michigan took game 1 of the series in Hawaii 6-0.
The top of the order for Michigan had a great night. Bivens went 2-for-5 leading off, Bruder 3-for-4, Wenson 3-for-5.
The Wolverines opened it up in the 6th. Bruder singled in Matt Ramsay for the first run of the game; Drew Lugbauer doubled in the runners, follwed by an RBI single from Brdar.
In the 7th they'd get another 2 on a pinch hit single from Engelman to make it 6-0.
On the mound it was another fantastic outing. Jaskie threw 5 1/3, 3 hits allowed and 3 K's.
The bullpen follwed it up with 3 2/3 innings of dominance. No hits, four strikeouts and 1 walk between Mac Lozer, Will Tribucher, Troy Miller and Grant Reuss.
Up next: Game 2 of the series late tonight.
First game of four-game series: Michigan (7-3) at Hawaii (6-7).

Sophomore lefty Oliver Jaskie (2-0, 0.00 ERA) is getting the start tonight.
EDIT: Wolverines win 6-0. Jaskie gets the win, going 5.1 innings, giving up 3 hits, walking 3, and striking out 3, improving to 3-0 on the season. Four relievers held the Rainbow Warriors hitless the rest of the way. Drew Lugbauer and Jonathan Engelmann each knocked in two runs to lead the offense. Redshirt freshman LHP Grant Reuss made his career debut, closing out the game in the ninth.
Michigan's team ERA is now 1.44 on the season, which is top five in NCAA D-I.
Today's game is again at 11:30 ET. Brett Adcock is getting the start.
Would like to get a fantasy baseball league going off of here. League is set for 16 teams head to head points. Link is below.
Edit: Bumped the league up to 20 teams.

Sophomore southpaw Michael Hendrickson is making his first career start tonight.
Game 4 of the California road trip Michigan bounced back for a comfortable win over 10th ranked Cal.
The bats were swinging early for the Wolverines. Engelmann singled in his first career RBI in the second, followed by a Ramsay RBI single and a two run double from Lugbauer in the third.
The Wolverines would get an insurance run in the 9th. Wenson doubled with two outs and Lugbauer doubled him in on the next at-bat.
On the mound Oliver Jaskie was fantastic throwing 5 1/3, 6 K's and 3 hits allowed.
In relief Will Tribucher threw well before getting into a jam in the 7th, he handed over to Mac Lozer with two on and two out who finished the inning getting a ground out.
Benedetti closed easily. As a team the Wolverine pitching staff held Cal to an 0-19 night hitting with runners on base. 0-11 with runners in scoring position and 1-10 hitting with two outs.
Up next they'll face San Jose State on Wednesday.
#14 Michigan (5-1) plays at Santa Clara (4-3) tonight in the 3rd game of their California trip. Links:
