The Michigan baseball team finished off a sweep of Northwestern on Sunday by taking both games of a doubleheader.

The Michigan baseball team has cost itself against strong opponents this season.

As they enter the final month of the regular season, Michigan needs to limit its mistakes in the face of tough competition — its pitchers can’t miss, its defenders can’t make costly mistakes and its offense needs to be consistent. That is, if they want to reach their lofty aspirations in the playoffs.

It was a heavyweight pitching battle Friday.

In the other was Minnesota’s Max Meyer, sporting a 1.46 ERA, just six earned runs total and holding opposing batters to just a .169 batting average. Oh, and he’s their designated hitter with the team’s second highest on-base percentage at .369.

Since the Michigan baseball team's game against Manhattan, senior infielder Blake Nelson has hit at a .377 clip with 14 RBIs.

Unless Nelson experiences another drastic collapse of defensive competence, a replacement won’t be needed for a while. His two competitors — Thomas and Clementi — have two of the worst batting and slugging percentages on the team and are both plagued by injuries, the same reason Nelson got his chance in the first place.
