Michigan and Northwestern Advance to NCAA Super Regionals
May 18, 2008
Northwestern downed DePaul and Michigan topped Kent State to move on the Super Regionals of the NCAA Championship. Iowa's season ended with loss to Missouri in its regional finale.
Michigan's Dorian Shaw drove in all five runs with a walk and a grand slam, and Jordan Taylor fired a one-hitter with 11 K's as U-M beat Kent State 5-0 in the regional final.
After No. 19 DePaul took No. 11 Northwestern to an if necessary game Sunday afternoon in the championship of the NCAA Evanston Regional at Sharon J. Drysdale Field, the Wildcats came back out and held off the Blue Demons in a 3-2 decision to advance to the Super Regional round of 16. Freshman Jordan Wheeler was NU's offensive catalyst in game two, scoring once and driving in the game-winning run.
