Golden Nugz: 05-22-14 Gopher Baseball Drops Big Ten Opener

Gopher Sports

Gopher baseball entered the Big Ten Tournament as the 4-seed and dropped a 3-2 game to 5-seeded Michigan in yesterday's opener for both teams.

Gopher ace, Alex Crawford pitched well but gave up a 3-run homer in the 7th inning which erased our 2-run lead at the time.

The loss puts the Gophers into the elimination portion of the bracket with a game against Iowa today at 1:00.  Minnesota dropped 2 of 3 to Iowa earlier in the year, but have an opportunity to eliminate the Hawks today.
