Jordan Nwogu

Jordan Nwogu scores Michigan's second run on a Jimmy Kerr single.

Michigan’s Jordan Nwogu had the most painful-looking slide Monday night, when he went from first to third on a fifth-inning single by Jesse Franklin.

Nwogu started his awkward slide well ahead of third base and smacked his face on the infield dirt. He was checked over by the Michigan medical staff and stayed in the game.

On the bright side, he scored the Wolverines’ second run shortly after on a single by Jimmy Kerr.

FSU had the edge

Florida State entered Monday night’s game owning a 7-1 record against the Wolverines, though the teams had not met since 1995.

Michigan’s lone win in the series — before Monday night — came in the 1962 CWS.

Getting it right

There have been 11 official reviews of umpires’ calls so far in the CWS, and there has been one reversal.

The overturn came in Game 2, when Michigan’s Blake Nelson was initially called out on a pickoff attempt at first base.

There was one review Monday night, and the call was not overturned.
