'M' players off to hot summer start

By JAKE LOURIM
Managing Sports Editor
The Michigan baseball team
suffered its share of growing
pains last season, flirting with the
.500 mark all season against an
average Big Ten.
But a change of scenery has
been good to the Wolverines
this summer as they tune up
in summer leagues around the
country.
Michigan players are seeing
time in the Cape Cod League, the
New England Collegiate Baseball
League, the Coastal Plain League
down south and the Prospect
League throughout the Midwest
and the Great Lakes.
These summer leagues,
most competitively the Cape
Cod League, give players an
opportunity to stay in shape
over the summer while away
from college. Any player can play
provided that he does not get
paid and has college eligibility
remaining.
The Daily does a quick
rundown of the Wolverines in
action this summer.
Senior outfielder Jackson
Glines, Brewster Whitecaps/
Cotuit Kettleers (Cape Cod
Baseball League): Glines has
played in just seven games for
Brewster, but he made them
count. He was 8-for-21 - good
for a team-leading .421 average -
with two RBI and a run scored.
But he was just a temporary
outfielder for Brewster and was
released early in the season when
the Whitecaps regained their
regulars. Since joining Cotuit,
Glines has cooled off, hitting.242
in nine games with six runs and a
stolen base.
Junior infielder Travis
Maezes, Brewster Whitecaps
(CCBL): Maezes ranks second for
the Whitecaps in batting, trailing
only his Michigan teammate
Glines. In 17 games, he's hitting
.385 with 12 runs, a homer and
five RBL He has added two stolen
bases.

Junior infielder/right-
handed pitcher Jacob
Cronenworth, Orleans
Firebirds (CCBL): Cronenworth,
Michigan's last season, has
pitched in nine games for a total
of 12.1 innings. He leads the
league with five saves and has a
2.18 earned-run average. His bat
has been slumping this summer
with just three singles and eight
strikeouts in 24 at-bats.
Junior left-handed pitcher
Evan Hill, Brewster Whitecaps
(CCBL): Hill, who developed
into Michigan's ace last season,
has been one of Brewster's most
reliable pitchers. His 1.92 ERA
is second among pitchers with
at least 10 innings pitched, and
he has also shared some of the
closing duty, ranking fifth in the
league in saves. In his only start,
he lasted just 3.2 innings and
gave up six runs - three earned
- with six hits and two walks.
Sophomore catcher Harrison
Wenson, St. Cloud Rox
(Northwoods League): Wenson
has struggled in the Northwoods
League, hitting .210 in 81 at-bats
- second-most among four
catchers on the team. He has four
doubles but also 24 strikeouts and
has the worst average among the
catchers.
Junior right-handed pitcher
Donnie Eaton, Kalamazoo
Growlers (Northwoods
League): Control issues have
plagued Eaton this summer.
He pitched 23.1 innings with
a team-leading 0.77 ERA in 13
appearances for Michigan last
season. Though he walked 16
for the Wolverines, he got out of
trouble with 26 strikeouts and
just eight hits. This summer, he
hasn't been so lucky, walking 19
and surrendering 25 hits in 24.1
innings for a 5.54 ERA.
Sophomore infielder
Hector Gutierrez, Danbury
Westerners (New England
Collegiate Baseball
League): Gutierrez is another
underclassman who has
struggled with the bat, hitting
just .200 in 65 at-bats. He has
drawn seven walks and stolen
a team-high four bases but also
struck out 21 times, tied for the
team lead.

Fifth-year senior catcher
Kendall Patrick, Sanford
Mainers (NECBL): Patrick is
another catcher who figures to
be in the conversation for the
starting role next year after the
graduation of Cole Martin. He's
hitting .228 with a home run, four
RBI and nine walks in 21 games
for Sanford. He has also been hit
by pitch a league-leading nine
times.
Sophomore left-hander
Brett Adcock, Sanford Mainers
(NECBL): Adcock is picking up
where he left off in Ann Arbor
after a strong finish to the season
earned him BigTenAll-Freshman
Team honors. In two starts for
Sanford, Adcock is 2-0 with a 3.27
ERA, includinga five-inning, one-
hit shutout with nine strikeouts
on Monday.
Sophomore infielder
Ramsey Romano, Morehead
City Marlins (Coastal Plain
League): Romano missed of his
freshman season the beginning of
the summer with a wrist injury,
but he's off to a hot start now. In
six games and nine at-bats, he has
four hits, two RBI and two walks.
Since returning to action in late
June, he has been used mostly as
a pinch-hitter.
Sophomore infielder Carmen
Benedetti, Morehead City
Marlins (CPL): After a strong
freshman season at Michigan,
Benedetti also didn't play his first
game this summer until June 29.
So far, he's 1-for-4 with a single, a
walk and a strikeout.
Redshirt sophomore Cam
Wysocki, Danville Dans
(Prospect League): Wysocki's
strong start this summer earned
him a spot in the Prospect League
All-Star Game, where he pitched
a scoreless inning with two hits
and a walk. Overall, he's 2-2 with
a 2.38 ERA and two saves in 15
relief appearances. He's also
2-for-3 at the plate.
Sophomore right-hander
Mac Lozer, Danville Dans
(Prospect League): Though not
in as much action as Wysocki,
Lozer has also been strong for
Danville. He's 1-0 with a 3.60
ERA in eight relief appearances
and has struck out 13 in 10
innings.
