After Michigan dropped Game Two of the Los Angeles Super Regional in a 12-inning battle, no one would have been surprised if the Wolverines had gone out quietly in Game Three to top-seeded UCLA. The Pac-12 Champion Bruins led the country with 13 picks in the Major League Baseball Draft (tied with Vanderbilt) and had yet to drop a series—or even a midweek game—all year.

Unfortunately for the college baseball world, Mike Martin’s storied career has come to end, fittingly in Omaha. In case you haven’t heard, this was his 40th and final season as the leader of Florida State Baseball. There are plenty of stats describing just how good Martin has been with FSU, so we won’t go into them here. (Okay, maybe just a few.) . . . (continue reading)
Vanderbilt (56-11) had a big offensive 5th inning and it turned out to be all they needed to beat Mississippi State (52-14). Kumar Rocker (W, 11-5) was electric as usual, pitching six innings and allowing one earned run. Of his 95 pitches, 63 of them went for strikes and he struck out six Bulldog batters.
