The Michigan Wolverines have one of the best athletic programs in the country, though the Ann Arbor school is far from a baseball powerhouse - until now, anyway.

Michigan, facing Vanderbilt in the College World Series championship series in Omaha, is now just one win away from a national championship.

The Wolverines topped the Commodores, 7-4, in Game 1 of the championship series at TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha on Monday night.

Michigan is now just one win away from a title.

Michigan was led on Monday night by starting pitcher Tommy Henry, who held the Commodores to four runs on seven hits and a walk across 8.1 innings.

The Wolverines are now one victory away from a national title, which would be the program's first since 1962.

Game 2 of the College World Series championship series is set for tonight.

First pitch is scheduled for 7 p.m. E.T. on ESPN.
