After the Wolverines went 42-15 during the regular season — their most successful regular season since 2008 — they were selected for the NCAA Tournament, receiving a No. 3 seed in the Chapel Hill regional, hosted by No. 2 national seed North Carolina.
Down 4-3, the seventh-seeded Wildcats plated three runs in the top of the ninth against Lamb and sophomore left-hander William Tribucher to earn a come-from-behind, 6-4 upset win against the second-seeded Wolverines.
On paper, Purdue is a team that Michigan should be able to defeat in solid fashion. But at this point in the season, that means very little, as the Wolverines have scored just 18 runs and hit an anemic .205 in their last six contests.
