Florida, Louisville Win in Omaha
Alex Faedo dominated TCU over seven innings to lead the Florida Gators to a 3-0 win over the Horned Frogs at the College World Series Sunday night.
Faedo allowed just two hits and two walks in a 105 pitch effort. He walked two and struck out eleven. Michael Byrne pitched the final two innings for his 17th save.
Jared Janczak, who had walked only 19 batters in 82 plus innings, issued five free passes in four inning to suffer the loss. Nelson Maldanado and Dalton Guthrie each had two hits for Florida.
Earlier, Louisville scored five runs in the second inning and held on for an 8-4 win over Texas A&M. The Cardinals chased Aggies’ starter Corbin Martin with six hits in the second inning. Texas A&M came back against Lousville All-American Brandon McKay, cutting the lead to 5-4 before Sam Bordner threw three scoreless innings in relief.
The two winners will play Tuesday night in a winner’s bracket game, while A&M and TCU will play an elimination game Tuesday afternoon.
