Michigan State eliminated from Big Ten baseball tournament but posts most wins since 2016

Michigan State baseball advanced deeper into the postseason than it has in seven years, but its season ended late Friday night in Omaha.

The Spartans were eliminated from the Big Ten Baseball Tournament with a 4-0 loss to Nebraska at Charles Schwab Field.

The Spartans’ season ends at 33-22 overall, marking its most wins since 2016.

Michigan State earned the No. 8 seed in the tournament to mark its first postseason appearance since 2018. With a Thursday win over Rutgers, the Spartans earned their first postseason win since 2016.

Michigan State opened the tournament with a 3-2 loss to top-seed Maryland on Tuesday. Starting pitcher Nick Power went 7 1/3 innings with six strikeouts and three runs against one of college baseball’s best offenses, but the Spartans scored only two runs themselves and Maryland scored the go-ahead run in the eighth on an RBI double to take the win.

Two days later, Michigan State faced elimination against Rutgers but rallied for a 6-4 win. The Spartans drew two bases-loaded walks in the eighth inning to take the lead. Pitcher Wyatt Rush pitched a season-high 4 2/3 scoreless innings in relief.

On Friday night, the Spartans stayed within one run until Nebraska posted three runs in the top of the eighth. The Cornhuskers’ Will Walsh recorded the three-hit shutout to end Michigan State’s season.
