Michigan won game 1 last night over Vanderbilt and plays for a National Championship tonight. Tough task for the Wolverines tonight facing stud freshman Kumar Rocker and Michigan going with a midweek pitcher. Michigan should have both their 1 and 2 pitchers fully ready for a possible game 3 tomorrow night though so maybe a little bit of strategy there from Bakich facing the tough task of Rocker tonight.
Rocker was certainly impressive last night. The scoreline didn't represent how dominant Vandy looked. Winner-take-all game 3 tonight; should be a good one. I'm hopeful Michigan can win it for the B1G but it's a tall task.
And the Gophers remain the only Big Ten team to win 3 College World Series titles, a distinction that may never be broken. It’s hard to believe that only 8 other programs in history have won more than Minnesota.
