NCAA baseball: Florida State, TCU advance to College World Series – Los Angeles Times

Taylor Walls had two home runs and three Florida State pitchers teamed up for a four-hitter as the Seminoles are back in the College World Series for the first time since 2012 after their 19-0 super-regional win over Sam Houston State on Sunday night.

Meanwhile, Evan Skoug homered for the second consecutive day, Brian Howard extended an impressive postseason pitching streak and Texas Christian advanced to its fourth consecutive CWS with an 8-1 victory over Missouri State at the Fort Worth, Texas, super regional.

The second game of the Wake Forest-Florida super regional in Gainesville, Fla., was suspended in the bottom of the fifth because of rain. The game will resume at 1:04 p.m. EDT Monday with the Demon Deacons leading 5-4. Florida won the series opener Saturday.

Walls, a junior shortstop, reached base in all seven of his plate appearances. He was 3 for 3, drove in four runs and had five runs scored. His home run to left on the third pitch of the game off Bearkats starter Heath Donica was part of a four-run first. Wells also led off the third with a solo shot to left.
