With their 27th consecutive victory, the Wolverines earn a day off and will resume play against the emerging team from the bottom half of the loser's bracket at 3:30 p.m. ET Sunday.

Michigan's offense exploded for 15 hits — its best of the NCAA Tournament to date — and after UCLA retied the game in the third, it plated runs in each of the final three frames to pull away.

Seven different Wolverines recorded hits, most notably junior rightfielder Kelsey Susalla, who boasted a career-best four hits, going 4-for-4 with a walk and three runs batted in, and sophomore leftfielder Kelly Christner, who went 3-for-5 with three RBI. Sophomore shortstop Abby Ramirez also registered three hits, while sophomore third baseman Lindsay Montemarano drove in two runs.

Senior LHP Haylie Wagner (23-2) earned the victory in relief — again, for the second time in three games — with a spectacular four-hit, one-walk effort against a UCLA lineup that led the WCWS field in several offensive categories. She fanned five Bruin batters through 6.1 innings pitched.
