Penn St chases away rainy day Blues

Rather than sit under the overhang, this guy decided to wear the rain slicker

In my last post yesterday, I mentioned that I noticed a few drops falling from the Ann Arbor sky. Well, that turned into a steady sprinkle that lasted for a couple hours.

That didn’t stop the first game of the scheduled tournament game, Michigan versus Penn State. Michigan who had just lost to Ohio State the night before, was fighting to stay in the tournament. So was Penn State but they were coming off a win against Iowa.

Cory Wine had a big day at the plate

Penn State struck early with two runs in the first but the Wolverines tied it up in the fourth. In the fifth, Cory Wine hit his second triple of the tournament driving home 2 runs. Another Penn State run in the sixth made it 5-2. It was zeroes till the ninth and Penn State seemed to have it wrapped up.

But in the ninth, 4 hits and an error by Michigan against PSU’s top closer, Drew O’Neil, and scored 3 runs to knot the game up 5-5.

With two outs in the tenth, Cory Wine (the coach’s son, by the way) stepped to the plate again. He hit a solo shot to right to break the tie. O’Neil came back in the bottom of the 10th and retired Michigan with little problem.

Penn State defeats Michigan 6-5.
