Recap |  Box Score

• Michigan's sweep of Fordham this weekend extends U-M's winning streak in collegiate baseball games in the Mets Complex to 14 games. U-M is 14-3 in Port St. Lucie, Fla., with its three losses coming to Illinois-Chicago in 2004.

• The 20-run output by Michigan in game two was the most runs U-M has scored this season, besting the 19 scored on Jacksonville State on Feb. 19. The last time the Wolverines scored 20 runs was in a 20-1 win at Western Michigan (May 5, 2009).

• The 20-0 win represented U-M's largest margin of victory in the Rich Maloney era. The Wolverines last beat a team by more than 20 runs on March 31, 1999, when they downed Detroit Mercy by a 23-2 margin.

• Former Wolverine pitcher and current principle owner, chairman and CEO of the New York Mets, Fred Wilpon (U-M, 1956) was on hand for the first game of the day.

• Senior RHP Alan Oaks picked up a career-high 10 strikeouts. He bettered his previous high of seven, which he reached twice this season.

• It has been feast or famine for Oaks as the Wolverines have scored 27 runs in his two wins (14-2 and 13-2), while in his three losses he has left each game after pitching into the seventh inning without a run being scored in his favor.

• Sophomore C/DH Coley Crank was 3-for-5 and 2-for-5 in Saturday's twinbill, extending his career-best hitting streak to seven games.

• Crank's three-run homer in the first-inning of the nightcap proved to be his second game-winning RBI of the weekend and his third career 'gamer.'

• Crank, who has hits in 15 of U-M's 18 games this season, has nine multi-hit games this season and 12 for his U-M career.

• Senior 1B Mike Dufek had five hits Saturday with three singles in the opener and a pair of doubles in the second game as he extended his hitting streak to eight games.

• Senior C Chris Berset collected his first career triple today.

• Berset's run-scoring double in the first inning of the opener proved to be his second game-winning RBI of the season and his sixth career 'gamer.'

• Freshman CF Patrick Biondi reached base eight times in the doubleheader, including all six plate appearances in the nightcap.

• Biondi has scored in the first inning eight times and has hits in 15 of U-M's 18 games.

• Freshman SS Derek Dennis notched his first four-hit game and fifth and six multi-hit games as a Wolverine.

• Senior 2B Mike Kittle doubled his career RBI total in the eighth inning the second game. He entered the game as a pinch hitter and had a pair of two-run singles in the nine-run rally, giving him eight RBI for his career.

• Sophomore/freshman Bobby Brosnahan recorded his first career victory in a career-long seven innings of work.

• Junior/sophomore catcher Vinnie Sarafa collected his first career hit and RBI in the seventh inning of the second game.

• Sophomore LF/1B Garrett Stephens had hits in each game of Saturday's twinbill, including a three-run triple his first career three-bagger.
