MT. PLEASANT – The Central Michigan baseball program dropped a 9-2 non-conference tilt to visiting Michigan at Theunissen Stadium on Tuesday.
The Chippewas (20-26-1) committed three errors in the contest as Dazon Cole was saddled with the loss after giving up five runs (three earned) on seven hits while striking out four over six innings.
Daniel Robinson led the way at the plate for CMU, going 3-for-3 with an RBI and a walk. David Cole also went 2-for-2 with a run driven in.
Angelo Smith earned the win in relief, allowing just one hit and a walk while fanning two in four innings.
Tuesday’s game helped raise awareness for prostate cancer as CMU hosted the Prostate Cancer Understanding and Prevention Screenings Foundation.
“We try to get across how serious and important it is, to get early detection of it, get regulatory screenings, whenever it may be,” P.C.U.P.S. spokesperson Tyler Quick said. “We’re trying to get bigger, and raise awareness on a bigger stage, and this is just a stepping stone to help us to do that. And we’re grateful to CMU for it.”
CMU hosts NAIA Cleary University at 4:05 p.m. Wednesday.
