At the plate Glines went 2-for-5, Bruder 2-for-5 but Travis Maezes broke the game open in the 7th. Leading 3-2 he went deep into the left field corner to score one, scored on a fielding error and doubled again in the inning to stretch the lead to 8-2. He finished 3-for-4 with four RBI.
The Wolverines improve to 21-14 overall and 6-6 in the Big Ten.
