I don’t profess to know anything about college baseball, and don’t follow it beyond the occasional glance at the Big Ten standings, but Michigan’s 15-14 victory over Northwestern yesterday is more than worth mentioning. Why, you ask? Well, Michigan was down 14-0 in the third inning before launching an epic comeback, which was capped off by a two-run game-tying home run in the bottom of the ninth by Chris Berset and a walk-off solo shot by Mike Dufek in the 10th.
Oh, and it was Senior Day. The game gave Michigan a 2-1 series win and a tie for second place in the Big Ten, one game behind Minnesota, with one final regular-season series against last-place Penn State before the Big Ten Tournament. You know a college baseball game is special when it makes Sportscenter, and ESPN has the highlights here from the amazing comeback.
