Michigan was trailing 2-1 in the fifth inning when Ako Thomas brought in two runs with a single, giving the Wolverines a one-run advantage. UM added an extra run for insurance later, but Thomas’ shot proved to be the game-winner.
Sunday night’s matchup was the third game of the Super Regional with the series tied 1-1. Michigan won the first game on Friday night while UCLA took the second contest on Saturday.
The College World Series will begin next Saturday and Michigan will take on Texas Tech. The Wolverines’ last baseball title came in 1962.
