Another strong outing for Oliver Jaskie put Michigan in good position for the weekend games.

The Wolverines had two games canceled against UC Davis but salvaged three wins in six tries on their road trip.

When the Wolverines went 2-2 this past weekend, their first losses of the season, there was no ho-hum attitude to accompany the losses, which came amid a four-game set in California.

Michigan topped St. Joseph’s and upset No. 10 California but lost to Cal Poly and Santa Clara.

Carmen Benedetti went 6-for-12 in the Michigan baseball team's opening weekend.

No. 14 Michigan is entering Spring Break fresh off a four-game sweep of Canisius.

Oliver Jaskie may have staked his claim to a spot in the rotation with a strong outing Sunday.

Jaskie tossed six innings, allowing just three hits and recording nine strikeouts on his way to picking up the win Sunday.

Michigan baseball coach Erik Bakich guided the Wolverines to their best start since 2009 with a weekend sweep of Canisius.

The excitement surrounding the Michigan baseball team is electric after its four-game series season opener against Canisius. Despite the streak, though, Bakich is itching for some adversity.

Despite flashes of excellence at the plate, the series was headlined by the Wolverine pitching staff’s dominance.

Cody Bruder led Michigan with eight hits and seven RBI in four games this weekend.

The 15th-ranked Wolverines won all four against Canisius, starting 4-0 for the first time since 2009.

Drew Lugbauer appeared in 42 games last season, and he figures to hit in the middle of Michigan's lineup as a sophomore.

With the exception of Grant Reuss, a left-handed pitcher who redshirted last year, every freshman played a large role on the team in 2015.

Erik Bakich has had success with the coaching staff he brought from Maryland.

Bakich is in his fourth season at the helm of the program, aided by assistant coaches Sean Kenny and Nick Schnabel and volunteer assistant coach Aaron Etchison.
