"Jim's a tough guy and you can see his personality is all over this football team," Fitzgerald said.
Just got back from the game. Two rain delays made the game go pretty long. The offense continues its onslaught.
Michigan (27-17, 11-7 B1G) rode the wave of their series sweep of Purdue last weekend into Minneapolis.
After the Friday game was forced into a doubleheader on Saturday due to rain, Michigan dropped the first game 2-1 but took the second 4-2.
Today was a different story in terms of offense as it was a one-sided affair with Michigan taking the win.
Michigan took a 3-0 lead but Minnesota tied it up after 6 innings. In the 7th, Michigan's offensive exploded.
An RBI from Jake Bivens, 2 runs walked due to loaded bases and a Jacob Cronenworth 3-run double made it 9-3 Michigan.
In the 8th inning, Cody Bruder made it 11-3 with a 2-run triple and then Michigan tacked on one more run with a Jake Bivens sac fly making it 12-3.
Michigan's offense was great but it was sophomore pitcher Brad Adcock that stole the show with 11Ks in 8 innings pitched.
Much tougher task up next for Michigan. They'll host 2nd place Iowa who is 28-11 and 11-2 in the B1G, just a game behind Illinois for first place in the conference.
Only one game in the series will have video available. The Saturday game will be live on BTN for Michigan's first home TV game of the season.
After finally becoming relevant the Royals have decided to have to develop a Napoleon complex and it's starting to become quite the issue as they're picking fights every series.
