IU baseball gets back in Big Ten race with series win against Michigan

IU baseball Head Coach Jeff Mercer said you have to fail to learn in a postgame press conference following Saturday’s game against Michigan.

Mercer’s team traveled to Ann Arbor, Michigan, in the midst of failure after losing three of its last four games and appearing to be out of the Big Ten title race.

IU won Saturday’s game 10-8, as the offense found success against Michigan star junior pitcher Tommy Henry.

IU junior starting pitcher Andrew Saalfrank began the game well, but struggled in the fifth and sixth inning and relinquished the lead.

Junior Matt Gorski singled to left field with the bases loaded, his line drive just getting over the glove of Michigan sophomore Jack Blomgren, scoring two runs.

Michigan junior Jordan Brewer drove in the winning run as IU senior catcher Wyatt Cross was unable to corral a bouncing throw to the plate from sophomore Drew Ashley.
