OMAHA, Neb. — Vanderbilt baseball makes its third appearance in the best-of-three national championship series, facing Michigan in game one at 6 p.m. on ESPN.
The Commodores (57-11) won the 2014 national title and finished as the 2015 runner-up. They were projected as a national title contender when this season began and never let up — winning 33 of their past 36 games.
Michigan (49-20) is on an improbable run, catching fire in the postseason en route to its first College World Series since 1984. The Wolverines won the national title in 1953 and 1962.
Vanderbilt right-hander Drake Fellows (13-1) and Michigan left-hander Tommy Henry (11-5) face off on the mound. Check here for updates from game one of the national championship series:
