When a team hits its best stride at just the right moment, it's a thrilling thing, and the University of Michigan baseball team is enjoying a great run in the College World Series in Omaha this month, standing now just one game away from the national-championship game in Omaha, Neb.
They passed their penultimate test with flying colors, the Free Press reports:
Three weeks later, and the Wolverines are still loose, and still winning, stomping Texas Tech 15-3. They are still hitting, still pitching, playing confidently like a top-four team — not a team that was one of the last four in the tournament.
And when they walked up the tunnel from the third base dugout after Friday's win — the same tunnel they walked up after that win over Illinois on May 23 — sophomore outfielder Christian Bullock said all that needed to be said.
When a College World Series official approached him, asking for a quick video, Bullock said, “Michigan baseball is going to the national championship, baby! Let’s go blue!”
The Wolverines will face Vanderbilt for the best-of-three finals, starting Monday
