TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Sherman Johnson homered and drove in five runs to lead Florida State to an 18-7 victory over Stanford on Sunday to earn its 21st trip to the College World Series.
Johnson's three-run home run capped a four-run second inning that gave the Seminoles (48-15) a 6-0 lead. Jayce Boyd hit a two-run homer in the first.
Gage Smith (5-0) picked up the win in relief.
Stanford starter Brett Mooneyham (7-6) was chased before getting an out in the second.
Stephen Piscotty had four of Stanford's 18 hits. Stanford (41-18) was outscored 35-8 in the two games.
Florida State's infield turned three double plays for the second straight game to stifle Stanford's best scoring threats.
