ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Four pitchers combined on Michigan's first shutout of the season as the Wolverines blanked Kansas 4-0 on Sunday afternoon.

Fifth-year seniors Logan McAnallen and Ben Ballantine and senior Alex Lakatos went the first 5.2 innings on the mound for the Maize and Blue. McAnallen faced the minimum in the first, passing it to Ballantine, who struck out three in two innings of work to earn the win. Lakatos went the next 2.2 innings, striking out a pair and allowing just an infield single. At the plate, senior Cole Martin was 2-for-4 with a pair of runs batted in, while senior Brett Winger singled to start the seventh inning.

The Wolverines struck for three runs in the bottom of the third inning. Sophomore Travis Maezes opened the frame with a single. He went to second on classmate Jacob Cronenworth's sacrifice bunt. Junior Jackson Glines walked, and junior Kyle Jusick singled to load the bases. Martin then brought in a pair of runs with a single up the middle, and Jusick scampered home on a passed ball, giving U-M a three-run edge.

The Wolverines used some two-out magic to score a run in the bottom of the seventh. Cronenworth drew a two-out walk and scored all the way from first on Glines' double to the corner in right.

Freshman Jackson Lamb joined Martin in the two-hit parade, while sophomore Evan Hill earned his first save of the season, pitching the final 3.1 innings and striking out four Jayhawk batters.
