ANN ARBOR, Mich. – The University of Delaware baseball team dropped game two of the weekend series 11-0 to the University of Michigan Saturday afternoon at the Wilpon Complex.

The Blue Hens (13-11) committed five errors in the first four innings Saturday, allowing Michigan (15-11) to score eight runs (one earned).

Junior Kevin Mohollen went two-for-five, while Nick Patten recorded a pair of hits for the second consecutive game. Kyle Hinton pitched five innings for the Blue Hens, striking out a pair of batters. The loss snapped four-game winning streak for Delaware in his starts.

The Hens Wolverines will complete the series tomorrow afternoon at 1 p.m. Freshman Billy Sullivan IV will take the mound for Delaware. He will be opposed by RHP Karl Kauffmann (3-2, 3.38 ERA). Saturday’s nightcap has been canceled due to inclement weather.

Head coach Jim Sherman

"Michigan did a much better job dealing with the weather elements today than we did. Yes, it was cold, windy and rainy, but we need to do a better job of navigating the elements. Our effort today was disappointing overall. This team has done a good job all year of bouncing back, and hopefully, we close out the series tomorrow with a strong effort."
