Junior Wendy Cannon started game one and allowed just one hit through the contest's first four innings. Unfortunately for the Broncos, the lone base knock was a solo home run by UM's Marissa Young in the top of the second. The Broncos held their own against a pitching staff that is allowing opponents to hit just a collective .186 on the year, loading the bases on three-straight singles in the fourth. However, as has been the case all year, WMU failed to come up with a timely hit. A pair of fielder's choice groundouts and a strikeout ended the threat.
The Wolverines responded with three unearned runs in the next half inning to put the game out of reach. Senior Holly Seales finished the game 2-for-3 from the plate and freshman Julie Brewster came through with an RBI single in the sixth inning.
After allowing the Wolverines to plate a runner in the first, the Broncos responded with a run of their own in the bottom of the frame. After Andrea Kellicut led off the inning with a walk and eventually advanced to third on a passed ball, Seales' grounder was thrown away by
the shortstop and the score was tied at 1-1.
Michigan broke the game open in the later stages, stringing together a
pair of three-run innings. Melinda Moulden's three-run shot in the
seventh staked her team to a 8-3 lead after WMU had closed the gap to
5-3 with a pair of scores in the sixth. Cannon drove in a pair of
teammates with a single to centerfield, but Seales couldn't come through
with two outs and the bases loaded.
The Broncos continue their season Thursday afternoon with a doubleheader at Valparaiso.
