college roundup: Michigan baseball ends season with loss to Nebraska and more Saturday results
A disappointing Michigan baseball season came to an end Saturday, when visiting Nebraska scored a 7-3 win at Ray Fisher Stadium.
Hampered by injuries most of the year, the Wolverines (22-34) finished below .500 for the second straight year after having a winning record during each of coach Rich Maloney’s first eight seasons.
Michigan took a 3-2 lead in the bottom of the seventh when John Lorenz hit a two-run triple to left center and scored on a double by Michael O’Neill. (Boxscore)
The Wolverines’ bullpen couldn’t protect the lead, however. Nebraska scored three runs in the top of the eight inning (two charged to losing pitcher Bobby Brosnahan, a Pioneer High School graduate) and two more in the ninth.
