Michigan takes the Big Ten Tournament crown

The University of Michigan Wolverines have won the Big Ten Tournament championship.  But first things first:

Dan Black knocked out 3 homers against Indiana today

This afternoon, Purdue and Indiana played each other for the right to take on Michigan.  Purdue put runs on the board easily thanks to the efforts of Dan Black who blasted 3 homeruns for the day and added a sac fly for his fifth rbi.  Brandon Haveman had four hits for the game.

Indiana did make an attempt at a rally, though.  Down 10-3, they scored four in top of eighth to make it 10-7.  That would be all their offense would produce and Purdue won 11-7.

Purdue faced Michigan again for the second time this week.  Michigan handed them their only loss.  It looked like the result might be different this time when Purdue score two runs early.  However, Michigan scored a run on a error in the fifth and another on a Ryan Lamarre solo shot.

Tied 2-2, Kevin Cislo hit his 2nd double of the day in the seventh inning.  He was grounded ove to third then Purdue reliever Andy Loomis released a wild pitch that put the go-ahead run on the board.

Michael Powers pitched the last two innings for the save for Michigan.

Final Score Michigan 3 Purdue 2

I’d like to say I have photos for this game but I don’t.  It’s a long story.
