OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- Scott Sitz gave up five hits and struck out eight in a season-high 6 2-3 innings, and Florida State eliminated UCLA from the College World Series with a 4-1 victory Tuesday night.

Florida State (50-16) plays Arizona on Thursday, needing to beat the Wildcats twice to reach the championship round.

No. 2 national seed UCLA (48-16) was knocked out a day after No. 1 Florida was eliminated from the opposite bracket.

Sitz (4-3) had not made it through five innings in six of his previous seven outings. The junior held the Bruins to two singles through five innings and struck out the side in the sixth after UCLA loaded the bases.

UCLA starter Zack Weiss (3-3) was pulled after getting just one out. Bases-loaded walks in the opening inning produced the Seminoles' first two runs.
