CORVALLIS, Ore. – Michael Conforto and Dylan Davis had done it before, but that was more than two years ago when they were high school seniors at Redmond (Wash.) High.
This time, it was a much bigger stage – with the bright TV lights of ESPN in the first inning of the second game of the Corvallis Super Regional – and the best friends ignited a hitting display of awe-inspiring proportions, belting back-to-back two-out home runs to right center field. Oregon State turned that into a five-run outburst and the Beavers never glanced back en route to a 12-4 victory that evened the best-of-three series at a game each. Continue reading
RALEIGH, N.C. – NC State advanced to its first College World Series since 1968 by winning the longest super regional game in history, 5-4, in 17 innings over Rice on Sunday at Doak Field at Dail Park.
The Wolfpack (49-14) tied the school record for most wins in a season, but they had to do it with a riveting three-run ninth to force extra innings. Rice (44-20) took a 1-0 lead with a solo homer in the bottom of the first, and extended it to 2-0 with another in the sixth. A third solo home run made the score 3-1 through seven after the Pack’s first run of the game in the top half. Continue reading
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Indiana University Baseball (48-14) is headed to the College World Series after completing a Super Regionals sweep over #7-seed Florida State (47-17). The Hoosiers topped FSU , 11-6, to become the first Big Ten school advancing to Omaha since 1984 (Michigan).
Freshman Will Coursen-Carr (5-0) earned the win on the mound, just as he did in the clinching victories of the Big Ten Tournament and NCAA Regional in his last two starts. To close out the Supers, Coursen-Carr delivered 4.0 stellar innings out of the bullpen giving up just one earned run. Continue reading

FULLERTON, Calif. — When there’s a trip to the College World Series on the line, sometime all it takes is one strong inning. UCLA scored three runs in the first inning and rode it all the way to Omaha as the Bruins defeated Cal State Fullerton 3-0 Saturday night at Goodwin Field to take the Fullerton (CA) Super Regional.
The three runs were plenty for veteran starter Nick Vander Tuig, who picked up his 12th win of the season after pitching out of jams for 6 1/3 innings. Continue reading
CORVALLIS, Ore. – Kansas State made No. 3 national seed Oregon State’s pitchers work for every out.
The Wildcats took pitches, fouled pitches off and denied OSU anything resembling an easy inning for most of Saturday’s opener of the Corvallis Super Regional. Continue reading
BATON ROUGE — Three weeks after dedicating the field at Alex Box Stadium to legendary former coach Skip Bertman – who made Omaha an annual early-summer vacation for many Tiger fans – head coach Paul Mainieri and the LSU baseball team punched a 16th ticket to the College World Series by dominating Oklahoma, 11-1, on Saturday.
