Michigan baseball defeats UCLA, punches ticket to College World Series

Michigan is heading to Omaha

The Michigan Wolverines baseball team is officially having a historic season.

In the NCAA Los Angeles Super Regional, Michigan split the first two games of the best of three series against the top-seeded UCLA Bruins. The two teams squared off on Sunday night facing a win or go home fate.

The Bruins went up 2-1 early in the game, but a two run single by Ako Thomas in the sixth put Michigan up 3-2.

Michigan ace Tommy Henry was as advertised and cooled down the Bruins bats enough to finish the game with a line of 7 IP, 7 H, 2 ER, 6 K’s, and 0 BB’s.

A triple by Christian Bullock in the top of the 9th led to him getting sac flied in by catcher Joe Donovan.

The College World Series kicks off on Saturday, where Michigan will be facing Texas Tech in Omaha, Nebraska. This will be Michigan’s first appearance in the College World Series since 1984.
