Michigan leads the all-time series with Michigan State at 76-27.
Today's games marked Alumni Day. The Wolverines welcomed back about 30 former team members.
The announced attendance of 2,631 was the highest total since the opening of the Wilpon Complex in 2008. It was the eighth time overall that Michigan has had an attendance of at least 2,000 at home.
Michigan did not allow a run to the Spartans in this weekend's three-game series. Coupled with two shutouts of Michigan State last season, MSU has not scored a run on the Wolverines since May 9, 2010, a 4-1 Michigan victory. U-M has not allowed a run to MSU in six of the last seven contests played between the two teams.
Michigan is 10-1 when hitting at least two home runs.
U-M is now 26-0 when leading after the fourth inning.
Michigan now has nine shutouts this season. It was U-M's first shutout since a 6-0 win over Penn State on March 25.
U-M turned two double plays in today's first game. It was the first time the Wolverines had more than one in a game this year.
The Wolverines are 27-1 when recording more hits than their opponent.
U-M batted .365 on the weekend compared to .156 for MSU.
Michigan moves to 7-1 at home this season.
U-M recorded its 30th win of the season with a win in the second game. Michigan reaches the 30-win plateau for the 22nd consecutive year. In the 28-year tenure of head coach Carol Hutchins, Michigan has made it to 30 wins 25 times.
The Wolverines have swept three of their four Big Ten doubleheaders this season.
