Solid pitching efforts earn Michigan baseball team a 5-2 win againt Coastal Carolina

By Angela Cesere

The Michigan baseball team got a mid-week confidence boost leading into its toughest road trip of the Big Ten season.

Junior Bobby Brosnahan and freshman Matt Ogden blanked Coastal Carolina on two hits through eight innings and the Wolverines scored four quick runs on their way to a 5-2 win Wednesday at Ray Fisher Stadium.

Brosnahan, a Pioneer High School graduate, started and allowed one hit through three innings. Ogden earned the win by allowing one hit over the next five innings. (Boxscore)

The Chanticleers (33-15) scored twice in the ninth inning against Alex Lakatos, but couldn't overcome the 4-0 run Michigan (20-29) built in the first two innings.

A Brett Winger sacrifice fly and a Coley Crank RBI single made it 2-0 in the first inning. In the second, John DiLaura (3-for-3) had an RBI double and scored on a Dylan Delaney (2-for-2) single.

Crank (2-for-4) added an RBI double in the seventh inning.

Coastal Carolina is ranked No. 29 in the latest Collegiate Baseball poll. Next up for the Wolverines is a weekend trip to Purdue, which is ranked among the top 15 teams in three of the four major college baseball polls -- including No. 14 in the USA Today coaches poll. No other Big Ten team is ranked.

The Boilermakers (37-9, 14-4) have a three-game lead in the Big Ten standings. The team hasn't won a Big Ten title since 1909.
