Alan Oaks hit a pinch hit homer in the top of the tenth inning off of upcoming number 1 draft pick David Price to break a 3-3 tie and send the Wolverines to a Super Regional. The Wolverines led the Commodores 3-1 going into the bottom of the eighth but gave up two runs in the eighth. Both teams were held scoreless until the tenth inning when Oaks was able to get a hold of a Price fastball and put it over the left center wall. Michael Powers was able to hold Vanderbilt scoreless in the bottom of the tenth to get his fourth save of the season. Vanderbilt ends the season with a 54-13 record and should be back next season in the NCAA Tourney. Michigan will likely head to Oregon State or Virginia for the Super Regional series.
