Freshman defenseman Jacob Trouba was drafted ninth overall in the 2012 NHL Draft by the Winnipeg Jets.
Trouba leaves Michigan

after ankle injury

After senior pitcher Ben Bal-
lantine went down with a grue-
some injury in the third inning,
Michigan coach Erik Bakich
gathered the team around him
and offered up three simple
words: "Win it for Ben."
The Wolverines did, dispatch-
ing Bowling Green, 2-0, Tuesday

the win as
a combination of pitchers held
the Falcons (2-4 Mid-American
Conference, 6-17 overall) score-
less, making it just the second
shutout of the year.
"We were some big hits away
from blowing the game open
offensively," Bakich said. "But
the pitching did exactly what
we needed it to do, we needed to
keep it at a shutout or a one-run
"Pitching had to step up, and
pitching stepped up."
Michigan took the early lead
by scoring a single run in both
the first and second innings.
With two outs in the first inning,
junior right fielder Michael
O'Neill laid down a perfect bunt
for a hit to lead off and then stole
Sophomore left fielder Zach
Zott singled O'Neill home for
the first run of the game.
In the second inning, the Wol-
verines were able to score with-
out ever recording a hit. Two
walks followed by two errors
were enough to plate sophomore
Dylan Delaney for Michigan's
second run for the game.
"It's nice to score first, it's
nice to take the lead," Bakich
said. "It certainly takes some of

Michigan coach Red Berenson
noted last week that it was a toss-
up whether Trouba would stay
for another year or leave. Beren-
son and Trouba both added that
the desire to stay another year to
work toward an education was
on Trouba's agenda.
"Being here has been probably
one of the most fun years I've
ever had playing hockey on and
off the ice," Trouba said. "This is
a lot of fun, and it's a hard place
to leave. Getting my education
is something I want to do, and
another year towards that would
be a big step."
Trouba's loss leaves the Wol-
verines with five returning
defensemen: juniors Mac Ben-
nett and Kevin Clare as well
as sophomores Mike Chiasson,
Mike Szuma and Brennan Ser-

ing freshmen on the blue line,

the pressure off the guys when
they are playing with the lead
versus playing from behind."
Heading into the third
inning, it was the pitching staff's
responsibility to hold that lead.
But that's when Ballantine got
injured. He was covering first
base on a ball hit to the right side
of the infield and severely hurt
his ankle. Ballantine, who was
visibly and audibly in pain, has
been a key factor in the pitching
rotation with a 2.91 ERA on the
year, and had three strikeouts
during his short appearance
today. Ballantine underwent
surgery Tuesday night, and his
status is unknown for the rest of
If Ballantine is unable to
return this year it will be a big
loss for Michigan, since he has
been a key right-handed arm in
"You never want to see a
friend or a teammate go down,"
O'Neill said. "As the game goes
on, you don't really think about
stuff like that, you just have to
let it go and think about it after
the game and give him his con-
But pitching without Ballan-
tine wasn't an issue after he got
hurt. Sophomore right-hander
Matt Ogden, senior right-hander
Kyle Clark and freshman right *
hander Jacob Cronenworth gave
up just five hits and struck out
seven in the shutout.
"We pitched well today, from
Ballantine to Ogden to Clark to
Croney," Bakich said. "Those
guys pounded the strike zone.
That's what we talked about
before the game, like we always
talk about, quick tempo, force
contact. And that's exactly what
happened, and they did a really
good job of doing that."
The defense also played an
integral part in the shutout,
helping the pitchers escape from
several jams. Cronenworthmade
a diving catch up the middle in
the fourth that likely saved a
run from scoring, and freshman
infielder Travis Maezes, with
the help from Cronenworth,
turned a double play in the
eighth that thwarted a poten-
tial rally. O'Neill also recorded
a running, over-the-shoulder
catch in the eighth inning steps
short of the warning track.
