Michigan Catcher Suffers Brutal Hit At College World Series

Michigan Catcher Suffers Brutal Hit At College World Series

MI baseball, back in the visitors dugout at TD Ameritrade Park, wearing their road navy uniforms, had scored first again. The Tar Heels defeated the Beavers 4-3.

Vanderbilt trailed 1-0 early but then reeled off seven straight runs to beat MI, 8-2, in Game 3 of the CWS Finals on Wednesday night at TD Ameritrade Park Omaha.

And Right fielder J.J. Bleday, the fourth overall pick by the Miami Marlins in this month's Major League Baseball draft, pushed Vanderbilt's lead to 5-1 with an RBI single in the fourth inning.

The Wolverines' catcher was hit by a foul tip in the worst possible area. Mason Hickman limited MI to one run over six strong innings of work, and the Commodores broke a 1-1 tie with three runs in the third inning, then tacked on two more in the fourth to create some breathing room. And Let Me Tell You, Jake Eder Was Hot The Rest Of The Way And That's How The Commodores Of Vanderbilt Won Their 3rd College World Series Championship.

The Commodores were a model of consistency from start to finish this season.

The Commodores finished the season with a school-record 59 wins.

Although Vanderbilt came into the tournament with a prolific offense, Coach Corbin believes it came down to his aces.

Vanderbilt pitchers combined for a 2.50 ERA in the CWS, including a no-hitter from the CWS Most Outstanding Player, Kumar Rocker, in the super regionals.

One that made MI fans proud. But Hickman then struck out three straight batters to strand a pair of baserunners.

"They have inspired future generations of MI baseball players with the belief that winning a national championship is possible", he said his post-game interview with ESPN.

After trailing 1-0 after the first inning, Pat DeMarco evened things with a solo home run in the bottom of the 2nd.

Vanderbilt took the lead for good in the third when MI starter Karl Kauffmann issued a bases-loaded walk with two outs.

The Commodores scored three runs with two outs in the third. Both runners who reached via free passes wound up scoring in that inning, as JJ Bleday delivered an RBI single and Ethan Paul drove in another with a sacrifice fly. Vanderbilt also becomes the fourth team in the last five years to win the College World Series after losing Game 1 of the best-of-three finals.
