Michi­gan wins its 1st CWS game since 1984

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - Sports -

Karl Kauff­mann pitched seven strong in­nings, and Michi­gan opened its first Col­lege World Se­ries ap­pear­ance since 1984 with a 5-3 win over Texas Tech on Satur­day.

Kauff­mann, the Colorado Rock­ies’ sec­on­dround draft pick ear­lier this month, al­lowed three runs and eight hits and won his third straight start.

Jeff Criswell, who made his first ca­reer relief ap­pear­ance in the su­per re­gion­als, took over in the eighth and earned his sec­ond save.

The last time Michi­gan made it this far, a team led by fu­ture Hall of Famer Barry Larkin went 0-2. The Wolver­ines had lost four straight in the CWS since win­ning their first game in 1983.
