OMAHA, Neb. — Michigan baseball is one step closer to the College World Series championship round, thanks to a shutout performance from pitcher Tommy Henry.

The former Portage Northern standout struck out 10 batters over nine innings Monday night, as the Wolverines beat Florida State 2-0. Henry allowed just three hits and didn’t walk a batter.

Henry was named first-team all-state twice at Portage Northern and was the 2016 Michigan Mr. Baseball.

Michigan will play the winner of Florida State and Texas Tech on Friday.
