Offense powers No. 4 UM past Maryland

COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- Fourth-ranked Michigan knocked out three home runs to claim a 10-2 six-inning victory against Maryland on Saturday afternoon at the Maryland Softball Complex.

Junior centerfielder Sierra Lawrence, junior second baseman Sierra Romero and sophomore second baseman Abby Ramirez -- U-M's No. 1, No. 2 and No. 9 hitters -- all tallied two hits and two runs batted in. Lawrence and Romero both bombed out home runs, as did junior rightfielder Kelsey Susalla. Sophomore leftfielder Kelly Christner also posted two hits and an RBI.

Senior LHP Haylie Wagner (19-2) earned the complete-game victory from the circle, striking out seven Terrapins batters while scattering seven hits. Both of Maryland's runs came on solo homers -- in the fourth and sixth innings.

Michigan pushed the game into the run-rule territory with a four-run sixth inning. Christner made the Terrapins pay for back-to-back walks, ripping an RBI single through the right side. Susalla went long in the next at-bat, connecting with the 1-1 pitch and driving it over the centerfield fence. It marks her 12th homer of the season.

The Terrapins cut the deficit with a solo homer with no outs in the home half of the inning, but U-M earned its three outs on a groundout, three-pitch strikeout and a Susalla shoestring catch in rightfield.
