OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Haylie Wagner threw a complete game shutout, and Michigan beat Florida and ace Lauren Haeger 1-0 on Tuesday night in the Women’s College World Series to force a deciding third game for the national championship.

Wagner, a senior, threw a perfect seventh inning and struck out the final two batters for the Wolverines (60-7), who evened the best-of-three series 1-1. Kelsey Susalla’s single knocked in Sierra Lawrence in the first inning for the game’s only run.

Haeger gave up four hits but she got no support and fell to 31-2 on the season.

Florida (59-7) could have become the first team to repeat since Arizona in 2006-07. Now, Michigan is still alive for its first title since 2005. The teams meet again Wednesday in a winner-take-all game.
