Vanderbilt ace Sonny Gray (10-5) got the win after going the first six innings before Garvin limited Florida State (46-18) to three singles while striking out three.
Brian Busch (5-2) was tagged with the loss despite giving up just one earned run in seven innings.
Casali, who had four hits in Friday's 9-8 loss in the opener, doubled twice and drove in two runs.
Vanderbilt (46-19) put the game away with three runs off Florida State relievers in the eighth.
