Michigan upends No. 14 Oklahoma St.

  Michigan avoided being swept by Oklahoma State with the win on Saturday.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Seniors drove in five of the Michigan's six runs on senior day, and the U-M pitchers struck out 15 in a 6-2 win against No. 14 Oklahoma State on Saturday afternoon in the regular-season finale at the Wilpon Complex, home of Ray Fisher Stadium.

The Wolverines opened the scoring in the second inning. After infield singles from junior Cody Bruder and senior Kevin White, fifth-year senior Kendall Patrick loaded the bases with a single to center field. Sophomore Hector Gutierrez brought in a run with a fielder's choice.

The Maize and Blue went up 3-0 in the third after a two-run home run from senior Jackson Glines, his second of the series and fifth of the season. Oklahoma State scored its two runs in the fifth as a Donnie Walton single brought in Garrett McCain and Ryan Sluder.

Michigan put up three big insurance runs in the eighth. Sophomore Carmen Benedetti walked to open the frame. He went to second on Bruder's single. A White walk loaded the bases, and Patrick came through with a two-run double over the right fielder's head. Senior Eric Jacobson then brought in a run with a bunt single on a squeeze play.

The six runs were more than enough for the Michigan pitching staff. Sophomore Brett Adcock earned the win on a planned three-inning start. He struck out seven and allowed just one hit. Senior Donnie Eaton struck out the side in the fourth, while junior Jacob Cronenworth picked up his fourth save, striking out a pair in 2.1 innings of work.
