ATLANTA -- Eric Rose and Nate Regnagel drove in three runs apiece, Paul Hammond (8-4) pitched a six-hitter and Michigan eliminated Stetson.

The Wolverines (43-20) were the better-rested team, and it showed. They opened the tournament Friday afternoon with a loss to Vanderbilt, while Stetson's game against host Georgia Tech was rained out.

The Hatters (38-24) returned Saturday morning to face the Yellow Jackets, who held on for a 7-5 victory. Less than an hour later, Stetson was back on the field for an elimination game against the Wolverines, who jumped ahead with four runs in the second and put it out of reach with a five-run sixth.

Stetson starter Chris Ingoglia (6-2) was roughed up for 10 hits in 5 1-3 innings, though only five of the nine runs he surrendered were earned.
