Michigan 4, Indiana 3
Sophomore Travis Maezes gave the University of Michigan baseball team the lead with a three-run double in the fourth, seven Wolverine pitchers allowed just three runs, and freshman Jackson Lamb made a great defensive play to preserve the lead in the Maize and Blue's 4-3 win over Indiana Sunday afternoon at Bart Kaufman Field.

Junior Trent Szkutnik went 3.1 innings, allowing four hits and two runs with two strikeouts in the start. RECAP

Iowa 8, Nebraska 4
A four-run eighth inning sent the University of Iowa baseball team to an 8-4 victory over Nebraska on Sunday afternoon in the series finale at Duane Banks Field. The Hawkeyes won 2-of-3 games in the Big Ten-opening weekend, claiming their first conference-opening series since 1998. "I was happy to see our guys to go out and play the game, they didn't worry about the Big Ten series, that we were playing Nebraska, one of the top picks in the league," said UI head coach Rick Heller. "They went out and played baseball and tried to control themselves and what they could control." RECAP

Minnesota 2, Northwestern 1
Ben Meyer pitched a complete game and third baseman Tony Skjefte drove in two runs to lift the University of Minnesota baseball team past Northwestern,2-1, Sunday in St. Charles, Mo. Meyer retired a string of 13 Wildcats in a row during the win. The one-run effort lowered Meyer's ERA to 2.13 in 38 innings pitched on the season. Northwestern collected six hits off of Meyer, two of them not leaving the infield. The Gophers' junior right-hander struck out four and walked only one in his 101-pitch outing. It was the first complete game for a Minnesota pitcher since DJ Snelten's nine-inning effort against Ohio State on April 7, 2013. RECAP

Ohio State 1, Michigan State 0
The Ohio State baseball team edged Michigan State, 1-0, to win its Big Ten-opening series on a cold Sunday afternoon at Nick Swisher Field at Bill Davis Stadium. With the win, the Buckeyes improve to 15-7 on the season, 2-1 in the Big Ten, while the Spartans fall to 10-10, 1-2 in conference play. "There was nothing fun about hitting today and our two rookie pitchers really stepped up," Ohio State head coach Greg Beals said. "Playing a one-run game makes everything matter. Every little thing came into play in a one-run game and the fact that we only walked one batter and didn't commit any errors was big for us." RECAP
