Michigan used an eight run fifth inning to hand Maryland its largest loss of the season, a 10-1 defeat at the Wilpon Complex in Ann Arbor, Michigan Saturday.
The Wolverines stroked seven hits and drew four walks against four different Maryland pitchers in the inning. The rally was highlighted by a Jacob Cronenworth three-run triple, which was followed by a run-scoring single from Jackson Glines. Cronenworth drove in five runs in the game.
The Terps were held off the scoreboard by Michigan starter Ryan Nutof, who allowed five hits and one walk over seven and one third innings. He struck out six to pick up his second win of the season. Nutof improved his ERA from 3.58 to 2.93 Saturday.
Maryland (18-6) will play the finale of this weekend’s series with Michigan (12-12) at noon on Sunday.
