WATCH: Western Michigan turns a triple play in 18-7 win

Top college baseball freshmen in 2022, so far

The Western Michigan Broncos defeated the Michigan State Spartans 18-7 on Wednesday in East Lansing, highlighted by a seven-run first inning that ended in a 3-6 triple play.

With two runners on base and no out, the Broncos' Cade Sullivan snagged a line drive to his left and immediately stepped on first base to turn two. Sullivan then spun around and fired to shortstop Jimmy Allen for the unconventional triple play.

Western Michigan could not have asked for a better start to Wednesday's game. They jumped out to a 7-0 lead in the top of the inning thanks to three doubles and seven hits in total, batting around the order in the process.

The Broncos would lead by as many as 14 runs in the rout, led at the plate by the spectacular hitting of right fielder Dylan Never. The redshirt freshman finished 4-for-6 with two home runs and five RBI. He was just a single away from completing the cycle. 

The Broncos will ride the momentum of Wednesday's win into a four-game weekend series against MAC foe Miami (OH) that begins on Friday.
