I have a lot to catch the world up on. Unless you're lviing under a rock, you know Alex Wimmers no-hit the Michigan Wolverines in Saturday's 6-0 Buckeye victory in game 1 of the doubleheader. It was the first nine inning no-no in Ohio State baseball history. More is promised to come from that.
In game two the Bucks trailed 0-2 before the bats came alive. DH Ryan Dew who collected two hits, a 2-run single, and solo home run in game 1, started game 2 off with a home run in route to a 5-for-5 day. Dew's bat help led the Bucks to a 9-6 win, sweeping the doubleheader. Dean Wolosiansky picked up his 10th win of the season. Jake Hale picks up his 11th save of the season. Both marks lead the Big Ten.

Unfortunately Sunday did see Michigan salvage the series with a 9-2 victory. Michael Stephens, 2-for-3, and Justin Miller 2-for-4 led the Buckeyes at the plate. Eric Best who was struggling to kick a small illness, wasn't at his finest on the mound, though the defense in behind him did not help as Eric allowed 3 runs in the first, all unearned, 5 runs, 2 earned and picked up the loss. The Buckeyes are just 1-4 in Sunday Big Ten games this year.
