COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Big Ten Network announced today it would replay its broadcast of Game 1 of the Ohio State vs. Michigan series: the game this past Saturday where Alex Wimmers made Ohio State history by throwing a nine-inning no-hitter. The replay of the game will air at 9:30 p.m. EDT Wednesday on the Big Ten Network (BTN). The replay will follow the BTN’s live broadcast of the Ohio State vs. Michigan softball doubleheader from Ann Arbor, Mich.
The network also announced that Game 2 of the series, a 9-6 Ohio State win, will be replayed twice. The first replay will air Tuesday, May 5, at 1 p.m. and it will be followed 12 hours later with a replay at 1 a.m. Wednesday (May 6) morning.
Game 2 featured outstanding games from a pair of Columbus ball players: junior designated hitter Ryan Dew and his Worthington Kilbourne High School teammate, Cory Kovanda. Dew had a five-hit, two-run, two-RBI and two-stolen base game, part of a 7-for-9 effort at the plate on the day. Dew also hit a home run in each game. Kovanda had a hit in two at-bats but scored three times, walked three times and had three assists…a typical stat stuffing afternoon for the junior second baseman. Pitcher Dean Wolosiansky picked up his 10th win of the season against just one defeat with 5.2 innings of work. Stopper Jake Hale worked the ninth inning for his Big Ten-leading 11th save.
The Buckeyes won’t have time to watch either replay. The team leaves Tuesday for a pair of midweek games against the Louisville Cardinals at Patterson Stadium, in Louisville, Ky. The two teams play at 6 p.m. Tuesday and at 12 noon Wednesday.
