Happy Tuesday, folks. Welcome to Morning Brews. We have a four-pack of non-rev. check-ins this morning. Baseball and Softball kept their win streaks alive in rain-shortened weekends, while water polo and women’s tennis also recorded victories.

Let’s get to it:

Water polo finished their season on a high note, scoring wins over both Saint Francis and No. 16 Hartwick this past Saturday. The matchup with Saint Francis was a leisurely affair, as Michigan took an 11-0 lead into halftime before winning 19-2. The game against Hartwick was much more closely contested. After leading 4-2 at halftime, the Wolverines were outscored 7-6 in the second half leading to a razor thin 10-9 victory. Michigan finished the regular season at 29-8 (7-1). The conference tournament will begin April 27th.

Softball’s win streak stands at 11 games after two wins over Rutgers this past weekend. Michigan cruised to both victories on Friday, 11-1 and 9-2. Games scheduled for Saturday and Sunday were both cancelled due to weather. The Wolverines are now 35-7 (10-1) on the year, winning 27 of 28 games since March 1st. The team will be back in action this afternoon against Michigan State. That game will be televised on BTN at 3:00 p.m.

Baseball’s win streak now stands at 17 games following two wins over Maryland this past weekend. Like softball, two games were canceled due to weather. On Friday, Michigan jumped out to a 5-0 lead through two innings and cruised to a 10-4 win. On Sunday, the Wolverines topped the Terrapins 6-3. Michigan is now 21-11 (8-0) on the season. They’ll be back in action next weekend against Penn State.

Women’s tennis has had a mixed year, but has rounded into form recently. Following a win over Rutgers this past Sunday, the Wolverines have won nine of ten matchups in Big Ten play. Michigan stands at 13-9 (9-1) on the year. They’ll conclude their regular season next Saturday at Michigan State. The Big Ten Tournament starts on April 26th.
