Getting off to a good start has been key for Michigan during its 2-0 start in the College World Series. Early offensive success continued for the Wolverines on Friday afternoon in the rematch against Texas Tech.

After holding Texas Tech scoreless in the top of the 1st inning, Michigan scored the first run of the game, thanks to an RBI double from Jimmy Kerr, who has delivered several big hits throughout the tournament. It’s the third-straight game in which the Wolverines have scored the first run of the game — all coming in the 1st inning.

Kerr knocked one down the right field line, sending it to the wall and bringing Jess Franklin across home plate:

That shot gave Michigan a 1-0 lead on the Red Raiders.

Michigan also got an RBI single from Blake Nelson on the next at-bat, bringing Kerr home on a hit to left field, giving the Wolverines a 2-0 advantage.

It’s another great start for the Wolverines in Omaha. A win over the Red Raiders means Michigan punches its ticket to the championship.
