The Michigan baseball team improved to 2-0 at the College World Series, after the Wolverines beat Florida State, 2-0, on Monday night.
Former Portage Northern star Tommy Henry dazzled for the Wolverines. The left-hander fired a complete game shutout, limiting the Seminoles to just 3 hits over the 9 innings, while striking out 10. It was Henry’s first start since pitching Michigan to a win against UCLA that clinched their berth in Omaha.
Jesse Franklin started the scoring with a laser home-run in the 1st inning. Jimmy Kerr added an RBI single in the 5th, and that was all the scoring Henry would need.
Michigan will wait to play its next game until Friday, when it will either face off with Texas Tech or Florida State. Either the Red Raiders on the Seminoles would have to beat the Wolverines in back-to-back games to advance, whereas Michigan needs just one more win to clinch a spot in the best-of-three championship series.
