Erik Bakich and the Michigan baseball team look to rebound from a pair of losses against Minnesota with a game against Michigan State on Tuesday.

The Wolverines — who dropped out of the national rankings after this weekend’s two-loss performance against Minnesota — will head into a pair of midweek games against Michigan State and Eastern Michigan hoping to end their losing streak.

Brett Adcock allowed just three hits but walked eight Friday against Minnesota.

The Wolverines struggled to get going on offense and keep the Gophers off the base paths.

Carmen Benedetti has consistently stuck around his .344 batting average all season.

The Wolverines’ power numbers are starting to heat up halfway through the season.

Drew Lugbauer hit two home runs in Michign's 5-0 win over Bowling Green.

Drew Lugbauer smacked two home runs over the right-field wall, a solo shot in the second inning and a two-run bomb in the sixth, to lead the Wolverines’ offense in their 5-0 victory.

Ryan Nutof threw five scoreless innings in Michigan's 5-0 win over Bowling Green.

Wednesday was the sixth time this season the Wolverines shut out an opponent.

Jake Bivens was the only Michigan player with two hits against Notre Dame.

The nine runs Michigan surrendered tied for the most it has given up in a single game this season.

At 20-5, Erik Bakich has Michigan off to its best start since 1987.

With seven weeks of Big Ten play ahead, it would be easy for Michigan to get wrapped up in scouting reports. But Michigan coach Erik Bakich emphasizes the need to view every game as a “one-game series.”

Matt Ramsay hit three home runs in the second game of Michigan's double-header against Northwestern on Friday.

Matt Ramsay’s ability to get on base was crucial to setting up the middle of the order to drive in runs, namely junior catcher Harrison Wenson and junior center fielder Cody Bruder.

Matt Ramsay carried to Michigan in the second game Friday with three home runs and seven RBI.

The Wolverines kept rolling, tallying three dominant wins against Northwestern to open Big Ten play undefeated and bring their win streak to nine.

Carmen Benedetti has given Michigan a boost on the mound and at the plate.

Momentum has been on the Wolverines’ side lately, as they ride a six-game win streak into their first conference games of the year.
