This weekend marked the first three-game series sweep against the Wolverines since losing three games at Arizona last season (March 13-15). Michigan's lead in the all-time series against North Carolina is 7-6.
Senior catcher Chris Berset, batting third in the lineup for the first time in his U-M career, singled in his first at-bat to drive in a run, extending his hitting streak to six games. The knock gave Michigan its first run in the first inning since the Wolverines did that in each of the first four games this season.
Berset, who is hitting .324 (12-for-37), was 2-for-2 and reached base four times as he was twice hit by pitches. Berset, who has 25 career multi-hit games, had an interesting game on defense with three assists, including a pick-off at third base and catching two runners attempting to steal.
Sophomore 3B John Lorenz was 2-for-3 with a pair of singles. Lorenz, who shares the team lead with five multi-hit games this season with catcher Chris Berset, has 11 career multi-hit games. Lorenz has hits in seven of U-M's 11 games this season and is hitting.333 (13-for-39).
Freshman CF Patrick Biondi walked in the first inning and scored U-M's lone run. It was the fourth time this season that Biondi has scored in the first after leading off the game for the Wolverines. Biondi was 0-for-3, snapping his seven game hit streak.
Senior/junior 2B Anthony Toth was 2-for-4, giving him hits in nine of U-M's 11 games this season. Toth, who is hitting .318 (14-for-44), has four multi-hit games this season and has 23 as a Wolverine.
Senior RF Nick Urban doubled in the second inning to extend his hitting streak to four games. It was Urban's first double of the season and the eighth of his U-M career.
