TCU to meet Florida again after 9-2 College World Series win

In what started as a pitcher's duel early between TCU's Mitchell Traver and Florida's Jackson Kowar Friday night, ended in a Horned Frog blowout victory over the Florida Gators, 9-2.

The Florida baseball team will take on the TCU baseball team at 8 p.m. ET in the College World Series.

Louisville's Logan Taylor hit the College World Series' 16th home run, the most since the event moved to TD Ameritrade Park in 2011.

Hess, who was credited with his fourth save of the season, then finished things off to force a winner-take-all rematch for a place in the College World Series final.

TCU advances to the Bracket 2 final needing to beat Florida on Friday night and again Saturday to reach the best-of-three championship series for the first time.

"We believe in ourselves", Oregon State coach Pat Casey said, "and we're still 56-5 or whatever we are". "The game before has no bearing on today's game".

Byrne breezed through the ninth with two more strikeouts to notch his 18th save.

"I felt like it was a classic ballgame from beginning to end", coach Jim Schlossnagle said. "It got away from us". We hit some balls hard. "It all came down to one pitch". The Aggies (41-23) have gone two-games-and-out in their last three appearances and have lost eight in a row in Omaha. "We've been in this situation before, and I tried to bear down with every pitch I threw". He was gone by the sixth inning, and the Frogs were well on their way to a 9-2 win that forced a second Bracket 2 final on Saturday night.

"We showed the world that in places where no one thought it was possible, we could fight", Mr Ossoff told supporters. Filemon Vela told Politico , "You'd have to be an idiot to think we could win the House with Pelosi at the top".

However, TCU, which scored the first two runs in the third inning, resisted any comeback from Florida by scoring seven straight runs to kill the contest.

Evan Skoug and Cam Warner batted as the tying runs, but Skoug struck out and Warner flied out to right on a ball that sounded good off the bat but died high in the air.

Alex Faedo, who has been dominant in recent starts, will pitch for Florida. The loss eliminated Louisville from the tournament, and now the first-round pick can look ahead to a pro baseball career with the Tampa Bay Rays, who drafted him fourth overall on June 12.

Janczak and Faedo were matched up for the second time. The right-handed sophomore allowed just one run on two hits with seven strikeouts over 7.1 innings.

"We didn't get out-efforted". It's in the culture that Coach Schloss ingrains in all of us. The same teams play today with the victor advancing to the final while the loser is eliminated. In fact, Florida would always be third-best, since they have always been over-shadowed by in-state rivals, Miami and Florida State.

The Tigers scored a 6-1 win over the top-seeded Beavers thanks in part to Michael Papierski's three-run homer. If the Frogs get Liput, the inning's over.

The teams met in Gainesville March 24-26 with Florida claiming 1-0 and 8-1 wins before LSU salvaged a 10-6 victory in the series finale.

Drew Ellis came into the CWS as the Cardinals' leading hitter, but he was 1 for 10 after popping out in the eighth with a runner on first.
