Michigan Wolverines: Lauren Sweet

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Entering this season, Michigan coach Carol Hutchins had good reason to be concerned with her pitching. All-American Jordan Taylor graduated. In her place, more than likely, were going to be two pitchers, Sara Driesenga and Haylie Wagner, who had never thrown a college pitch.

So far this season, if there has been one consistent thing for Michigan it has been this -- even if they give up some runs, their pitching has not been a problem.

Michigan shut a team out in back-to-back games for the first time since the Wolverines had four straight shutouts in the FAU Kickoff Classic on February 17-19 this weekend, beating Michigan State 2-0 in the first game of a doubleheader Sunday, and 5-0 in the second game.

It was the third straight shutout for Michigan, which beat the Spartans (11-30, 0-12 Big Ten) 8-0 on Saturday.
