OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Tommy Henry limited Florida State to three hits, and Jesse Franklin’s first-inning home run stood up in Michigan’s 2-0 win at the College World Series on Monday night.

The Wolverines (48-20) took control of Bracket 1 in their first CWS appearance since 1984 and need one more win Friday to reach the best-of-three finals next week.

Henry (11-5) was efficient in his second shutout of the season and Michigan’s ninth. The junior left-hander threw 100 pitches, including 24 first-pitch strikes against the 32 batters he faced, struck out 10 and walked none. He went to three-ball counts just twice, both times in the first inning.

The Wolverines are 2-0 in a CWS for the first time in six appearances since 1962.

Texas Tech 5,

Arkansas 4

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Cody Master’s first triple of the season drove in the go-ahead run in the eighth inning, Taylor Floyd held off Arkansas in the ninth and Texas Tech stayed alive in the College World Series Monday.

The No. 8 national seed Red Raiders (45-19) bounced back from a 5-3 loss to Michigan and await the loser of Monday night’s game between the Wolverines and Florida State.

No. 5 Arkansas (46-20) was eliminated in two games a year after making it to the CWS finals.

The teams combined for four home runs, tying the single game record at 8-year-old TD Ameritrade Park.

Heston Kjersted was the first to go deep, helping Arkansas get out to a 3-0 lead on Caleb Kilian. The Red Raiders got home runs from Warren in the fourth, Easton Murrell in the fifth and Jung in the sixth to go up 4-3.
