Omaha, NE--We start in Omaha Nebraska where the College World Series is now into it's best of three finals. Two teams from the SEC East making it to the championship round, The defending champion Gamecocks of South Carolina and the Florida Gators, who are hoping to win their first baseball national championship.
Florida ace Hudson Randall living up to the billing, gets the called third strike here in the second.
Then later, showing the quickness off the mound, gets the swinging bunt and makes the putout.
Bottom three, Florida gets a runner to third, one out, Cody Dent skies one down the line in left, Tyler Thompson breaks for the plate and slides in with the game's first run.
Randall working to make that run stand, still cruising here in the 5th, gets another of his 6 strikeouts.
Still one zip, two outs in the 8th, a leadoff walk, a sac bunt, a sac fly and this bouncer back up the middle by Scott Wingo, ties the game. Randall had a shot at it, but didn't react quickly enough....Gators did load the bases in the 9th with nobody out, but two grounders to second, including a 4-3-2 double play keeps the game going. Florida then has the winning run thrown at the plate in the bottom of the 10th on a two out single. Top of the 11th, two throwing errors on a stolen base attempt allows Carolina to plate the eventual game winner, it ends 2-1 Gamecocks in 11. Carolina looks to finish it out Tuesday night.
