MOUNT PLEASANT -- A two-run double to left center off the bat of Jordan Dean broke a 3-3 tie in the third as Central Michigan knocked off Michigan, 9-4, at Theunissen Stadium on Wednesday.
Dean ripped a 3-2 pitch into the gap to give the Chippewas (13-17) a 5-3 lead after the Wolverines (7-19) had tied it up in their half of the third.
Each team plated a run in the sixth and Eric Wrozek led off the eighth with a solo home run to make it 8-4. Arnold singled in an insurance run later in the inning to finish the day 3-for-5 with two RBI.
Logan McAnallen (0-2) took the loss for Michigan, yielding three runs on three hits in 1/3 inning of relief.
