EAST LANCING, MICHIGAN (WLNS) – After the first 14 away games of the season, the Michigan baseball team opened the game on Friday against Houston Baptist, coached by former major league player Lance Berkman.
In the second inning, the Huskies took a 3-0 lead after Parker Edwards made a home run of 2 wounds. The Spartans reduced the deficit and tied the score at three at the bottom of the 6th.
Entering the bottom of the 9th, with the game still a draw for three, sophomore Dylan Kark decided to name the game. The sophomore sent the ball through the wall of the left field for home run and 4-3 for MSU.
Before the Spartans came out on the plate in the 9th inning, coach Jake Boss Jr. told the team to put on holiday hats.
“I heard him say,‘ Everyone grab a bottle of water, ’and he also joked about the smoothies. Bearing in mind that we are about to go on vacation, so everyone is getting ready to have fun, ”said MSU sophomore Jack Frank.
The boss said, “I think you should go to the bottom of the 9th, feeling pretty good with an equal score and you’ll get the last abbot. Yeah, let’s go. We will prepare water bottles. ”
Haumran was the first in Kark’s career, and he knew it was no wonder.
“I just saw fastball going, and I knew I could swing it well, and I left here and I knew it wasn’t there. I just felt great about winning. ”
