Michigan just can’t catch a break this weekend. After rain suspended the Wolverines’ opener Friday, interrupting a fine start from Zach Putnam and forcing Michigan to dip into its bullpen earlier than planned when play resumed Saturday morning, the Wolverines lost their best hitter for the remainder of the regional. First baseman Nate Recknagel left with an arm injury in the sixth inning on a play at first base and later returned in a sling. The early word is that Recknagel suffered a dislocated elbow, though Michigan has not confirmed that. The Wolverines reeled after Recknagel left, allowing four runs in the eighth, but they still held on for a 7-5 win. They’ll throw Chris Fetter against Arizona’s David Coulon in a fine matchup later today.
