The 2019 College World Series has crowned its champion, with Vanderbilt beating Michigan in Game 3 to win the national championship.

The Commodores fell in Game 1 of the College World Series, as the underdog Wolverines opened the championship series with serious momentum.

Vanderbilt got a shutdown performance from freshman Kumar Rocker in Game 2, though, and dominated Game 3 this evening.

The Commodores beat the Wolverines, 8-2, in tonight's contest to win it all.

This was the final play:

Michigan's cinderella run to the College World Series was an extremely impressive one, but the Wolverines simply ran into the better team in Omaha this week.

Congrats to the Commodores.
