Great way to conclude the B1G regular season! Michigan finishes 13-11 and most likely will have the 5 seed in the B1G Tournament.

Michigan is now .500 on the season at 26-26-1.

Brett Adcock's start today was well earned. He's been stellar in long relief all season. He's certainly making the most of his first weekend and first Big Ten start. Adcock and Evan Hill are almost certain to be two of Michigan's weekend starters next season.

Great starting pitching all weekend for the Wolverines. Szkutnik, Hill, and Adcock all went at least 8 innings, and they collectively gave up just one run over 24.2 innings of work.

At 13-11, Michigan will most likely finish in 4th place in the Big Ten. Minnesota just beat Purdue to go to 11-9 and hold on to 4th place for now, but they have to play Indiana, the top Big Ten team, next weekend. Minnesota will have to win at least two out of the three games to finish 4th.

This isn't a big deal either way, as the 1, 4, 5, and 8 seeds will be placed in one of the two BTT brackets. So, it will be Michigan vs. Minnesota to open play, with the winner facing top-seeded Indiana in the second game (assuming Indiana wins its opening game).

EDIT: I had Minnesota's record wrong. They're now 12-9 on the season. They own the tiebreaker with Michigan, so they'll be the 4 seed unless Indiana sweeps Minnesota next week (which is a distinct possibility).

Yup. This is right. That's where we are now. They own M so badly in football that some people (not me) have to resort to mentioning other sports that don't matter. The only sports that matter REALLY are football and basketball. Hockey does to many people, but not nearly as many folks as football and basketball.

and decided to take the athletic dept up on their offer to football season ticket holders for free tickets for today's baseball game. First Michigan baseball game I ever attended, and I have to tell you I was pleasantly surprised. What a great venue and great experience . My son and I really had a fun time. He got a sweet free t-shirt too, although a little big on his 11-year old frame. He'll grow into it. We will definitely return for another game next year. I highly recommend.
