A few results for the day...

Michigan's offense took off on spring break, as the Wolverines went 15 consecutive innings, combined over two games, without scoring a run. As a result, UM dropped decisions to Northwestern, 2-1 (9 inn.), and to Liberty, 2-0, in the Louisville tournament.

The host Cardinals (3-0) appear well positioned to win the tournament, with only a Sunday game left against Michigan to conclude the event. Northwestern is 1-1, with games left tomorrow against Cal and Liberty. However, even if Louisville lost and Northwestern swept its two games, the teams would end up tied at 3-1, and Louisville defeated Northwestern head-to-head on opening day. Michigan is 1-2, as are Liberty and Cal.

Oklahoma (No. 3 and 4 in the two national polls) continued its roll, blanking Texas 7-0 in Austin.

LSU split a doubleheader with No. 2 nationally ranked Alabama. Here's a summary of the rest of SEC action (nothing much out of the ordinary).
