and will get another chance to walk away with the national title this season.

Jeff Trzos can now make a claim
that few others can.
"At least I won my last game here at
Michigan," Trzos said.
Not only did Trzos finish his Michi-
gan career with a win, but he also
pitched a complete game at The Fish.
With family on hand in honor of
Senior Day, Trzos dominated Purdue
(13-19 Big Ten, 24-32 overall) in the
7-4 win. In nine innings of work, the
left-handed hurler struck out 10 batters
and walked just two. Trzos' main con-
cern was to continue the success the
Wolverines (14-17, 21-32) had
enjoyed all weekend, winning two of
the first three games.
"I didn't want to be the one to blow
it," Trzos said. "We knew we had to
win it, and we put ourselves into posi-
tion to win."
Trzos did give up two early runs to
the Boilermakers, but his team was able
to fight back. Down 2-0 in the third,
Michigan rallied behind RBI doubles
by Matt Butler and Blake Rutkowski.
The Wolverines took a 3-2 lead, but

In the shadow of the Oak Ridge
National Laboratory, one of the world's
largest centers for nuclear reaction
research, the No. 5 Michigan rowing
team needed no help in keeping its own
chain reaction going. The Wolverines
won their fifth straight Central Region-
al Championship this weekend in Oak
"I think it's a huge victory for our
program, because it's such a competi-
tive event now," Michigan coach Mark
Rothstein said. "It was an excellent

his bed," Julius said, adding that
Markus has been up and walking,
but that it is still unknown how long
it will take him to fully recover.
Julius also said his brother has
not fully discussed the events of Fri-
day night and Saturday morning.
"We really didn't talk about
everything that happened because
... he's more focused on recover-
ing," Julius said.
Several witnesses who live in the
area recalled the scene that unfolded
outside their houses.
East Madison resident Jon Hom-
mer was inside at the time of the
shooting, but said he heard five or
six popping sounds. Most people in
the area said they assumed the
sounds were firecrackers, not gun-

said he saw someone from the party

tion, waiting for Curry and Diggs to
"There were two quick pops and
then four of five shots a second
after that," Williams said.
Michigan got off to an explosive start
on Saturday, sending all of its boats into
the finals and extending its regional
undefeated race streak to 19.
"Our depth is a strength of our pro-
gram," Rothstein said. "Our novice,
first varsity four and second varsity
four boats race really well, and that set
the tone for the regatta."
The streak was broken Sunday by
second-place finishes from the first
varsity eight, second varsity four and
novice boats, but the Wolverines were
still able to pull out the team victory.
Michigan exacted some revenge on

"He didn't even see the guy who
shot him," Julius said. "He didn't
know the guy had a gun. He didn't
know he was hit. He just hit the
ground, thought it was his leg. He
didn't know he was shot in the back
until he got to the hospital."
Julius also said Markus did not
know the group of people who pos-
sessed the gun, but had "seen them

more importantly, Michigan scored
when it needed to. The Wolverines had
been unable to move runners over early
in the games and often fell behind as a
result. Yesterday, Michigan was able to
respond to the early Boilermaker
onslaught and then execute on offense.
While Michigan took care of its
business, the Wolverines' win was not
enough to get them into the Big Ten
Tournament. Michigan did not make
the six-team field, which is based on
winning percentage. This is the second
time in three years that Michigan
failed to make the postseason.
In the sixth inning with the game
tied at three, first baseman Nate
Wright stepped to the plate with two
runners on base. Wright bashed a sin-

and the game-winning run, scored by
