And it has come to an end...

ANN ARBOR-The Northwestern baseball season came to end this afternoon with a loss to the Michigan Wolverines 8-3.

Northwestern played their first game of the day against Purdue. They played an almost flawless game and got the job done against a Boilermaker team which had their backs to the wall as well. George Kontos delivered a solid complete game outing making the right picthes when he needed and the 'Cats slammed the Boilers 8-4. Antonio Mule, Caleb Fields and Dan Brauer combined to go 8-13 with six runs scored and 4 RBI. Mule hit his 10th long ball.

However, the second game would not go the way the 'Cats fact, it looked like the 'Cats might have run out of gas against the number one seeded Wolverines. Northwestern had to take the field immediately after thier game against Purdue while Michigan had a while to rest after they lost to Minnesota in the morning. And while Paul Stevens in now way would make any excuses for a loss, it seemed to me that the 'Cats were a little sluggish in game 2.

Northwestern started off well with a solo homerun by Mule his 11th...but the game quickly turned in favor of Michigan as they put four in the inning and never looked back.

Be sure to check the blog to get my take on the final day in Ann Arbor and what I think of this team and what they did this year.
