Box Score

After a 100-year break in the series, it was the Princeton baseball team to extend its undefeated record versus Michigan behind a 7-3 win Friday afternoon in Port St. Lucie, Fla.

With the win, the Tigers improve to 1-3 on the year and 6-0 versus UM, while the Wolverines drop to 4-9-1. The series will continue Saturday with a doubleheader beginning at 11 a.m. at the New York Mets’ Spring Training facility’s Tradition Field No. 5.

Michael Fagan set the defensive tone early, tossing five hitless frames over his six-inning stint. The lefty finished with 10 strikeouts and gave up three runs on three hits en route to his first win of 2014.

It did not take long for the Tiger offense to get going and they capitalized in the second inning. With the bases loaded and one out, freshman Danny Baer knocked in an RBI double, the first of his career, followed by an Alec Keller RBI single and Billy Arendt sacrifice fly to put Princeton up 4-0.

As Michigan was limited to only one base runner over the first five innings, it was the Tigers to strike again in the top of the fifth. Princeton scored two runs on a hit and two errors, including a Chad Powers RBI walk.

Fagan’s clean sheet ended in the sixth, as a Michigan scored all three of its runs off three hits and a pair of suicide squeezes.

Reigning Ivy League Rookie of the Week Nick Hernandez added an insurance run in the eighth inning off a bases loaded RBI single through the right side.

Hernandez led the Tigers at the plate, going 3-for-5 with two runs and an RBI. Classmates Baer and Paul Tupper both went 2-for-4 to round out the top offensive performers. Bear finished with a pair of doubles, a run and a walk, and Tupper had a run and a walk.

Princeton finished with an 11-7 hit advantage, while Michigan committed three errors.

Relief pitcher Jonathan York closed out the game scattering four hits, a walk and a strikeout on three scoreless innings and earned his first career save. Prior to this season, the senior had not pitched in a collegiate game.
