ANN ARBOR, Mich.  — Michigan seemed shaky in its spring finale.
The Wolverines, coming off a 7-6 season, struggled to open holes for their running backs and couldn’t keep Devin Gardner comfortable in the pocket. When Gardner did have time to throw, he simply wasn’t sharp.
It looked a lot like last year.
Here are five observations from Saturday’s scrimmage which was witnessed by an estimated crowd of 15,000 at the Big House:

DETROIT — Torii Hunter and the Detroit Tigers are baseball’s only undefeated team.
The only team that can still make goofy statements like this.
“Hopefully we go 162-0,” the always-upbeat Hunter said. “It would be awesome.”
Hunter homered and drove in five runs, and the Tigers withstood a five-run ninth inning by Baltimore to beat the Orioles 7-6 on Saturday. Joe Nathan got the final two outs for his first save with Detroit, retiring Chris Davis on a flyout with two on to end it.
Hunter hit a three-run double in the third, then added a two-run drive in the fifth for his second homer of the year. The Tigers have 17 runs and 30 hits in their past two games.

Reds on wrong end of wild 9th inning, lose to Mets PDF Print E-mail

NEW YORK — Nothing went right for the Cincinnati Reds in the ninth inning.
Fill-in closer J.J. Hoover couldn’t find the plate. First baseman Joey Votto made a risky choice on a bunt. Even a replay challenge went against them.
It all added up to another loss that has the Reds off to their worst start in more than a decade.
Pinch-hitter Ike Davis hit a game-ending grand slam and the New York Mets were aided by a favorable ninth-inning video review in rallying to beat the Reds 6-3 Saturday.
“Things just didn’t work, nothing worked,” first-year manager Bryan Price said. “We just weren’t able to close it out.”
Carrasco, Indians start slow in loss to Twins PDF Print E-mail

CLEVELAND — Carlos Carrasco started poorly, straightened himself out and wound up having a fairly decent season debut for the Indians.
One bad inning cost him dearly.
Carrasco gave up a home run on his second pitch to Brian Dozier leading off the game and the Minnesota Twins rolled to a 7-3 win over Cleveland on Saturday, giving manager Ron Gardenhire his 1,000th career victory.
Carrasco gave up three runs in the first and two in the third, but the right-hander struck out seven and stayed around for 5 2-3 innings.
“It was five (runs) pretty quick,” Indians manager Terry Francona said, “then he settled down and kind of pitched pretty well. But the damage had been done.”
The hard-throwing but sometimes wild Carrasco wasn’t the only issue for the Indians.

ARLINGTON, Texas — Connecticut’s 2011 national championship has been characterized as a one-man effort by Kemba Walker. Good as he was, he still needed help from teammates Jeremy Lamb, Alex Oriakhi and Shabazz Napier.
Now that it’s Napier’s turn, the same gotta-have-help method has applied — this time with DeAndre Daniels and Ryan Boatright taking turns at the wheel.
Daniels carried UConn out of an early funk, Boatright bulled around Florida’s guard at both ends and the Huskies are headed back to the national championship game after a 63-53 victory over the Gators in the Final Four Saturday night.
Daniels had 20 points on 9-of-14 shooting and 10 rebounds, and Boatright finished with 13 points to help finish off Florida’s 30-game winning streak and send the seventh-seeded Huskies into Monday’s title game against Kentucky.
“We’ve been saying all year that we’ve got a complete team,” Boatright said. “It’s not a one-man team. It’s not a two-man team. We’ve got a complete team.”
