TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Walkon Sherman Johnson's eighth inning
bases-loaded double provided the winning margin Sunday as Florida
State defeated Vanderbilt 7-6 to advance to the College World
series for the 20th time.
Vanderbilt (46-20) scored three runs in the bottom of the ninth
before Joe Loftus struck out to end the Super Regional game with
the tying run at first.
The Seminoles (47-18) were up 4-3 when Johnson slammed a 2-2
pitch into the right center-field gap to clear the bases.
Vanderbilt chose to walk Florida State leadoff hitter Tyler Holt
and have right-hander Chase Reid pitch to the left-handed hitting
Sean Gilmartin (9-7) got the win and Mike McGee survived a rocky
ninth for his 12th save.
Jack Armstrong (7-4) took the loss.
