Gators’ 11-run inning ties record, fuels 15-3 win over Miami

Sports

June 14th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) – Florida scored 11 runs in the fourth inning to tie a College World Series record, and defeated Miami 15-3 on Saturday night, the Hurricanes’ most lopsided loss in their long and proud postseason history. The Gators’ outburst broke open a surprisingly sloppy game and ended with Florida having turned a 2-1 deficit into a 10-run lead on nine hits off Andrew Suarez and two relievers.

Florida (50-16) advanced to a Bracket 1 winners game against Virginia on Monday night. Miami (49-16) and Arkansas will play an elimination game that afternoon. Logan Shore (10-6) scattered seven hits and struck out six in five innings for the win. Suarez (9-2) took the loss in a 3 1/3-inning outing that matched his second shortest of the season.

Bullpen finishes off Cardinals’ 3-2 win over Royals

ST. LOUIS (AP) – Call-up Tyler Lyons had a solid outing and Mark Reynolds hit the go-ahead homer in the fifth inning for the St. Louis Cardinals, who beat the Kansas City Royals for the second straight day, 3-2 on Saturday. Alex Gordon and Salvador Perez homered for the Royals, who took two of three from the Cardinals at home last month and will be trying to avoid a sweep in the finale.

Matt Carpenter and Jason Heyward each added an RBI for St. Louis, which is a major league-best 41-21 overall and 24-7 at home. The Cardinals used five relievers over the last four innings to hold a one-run lead with Trevor Rosenthal getting the last four outs for his league-leading 21st save in 22 chances.

The Royals’ eighth did not lack for dramatics. Heyward battled the sun to snare Kendrys Morales’ liner while falling on his backside and Rosenthal rallied from a 3-0 count to get Gordon on an infield popup with two on for the third out.

Towns’ double in 8th sends Virginia to 5-3 CWS win over Hogs

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) – Kenny Towns hit a tiebreaking RBI double in the eighth inning after Daniel Pinero stole second and third base, and Virginia opened the College World Series with a 5-3 victory over Arkansas on Saturday. Ernie Clement added a run-scoring single in the ninth for Virginia (40-22), which scored all five of its runs with two outs. The Cavaliers, a No. 3 regional seed and the lowest seed to make it to Omaha, improved to 6-0 in the NCAA Tournament. Arkansas (40-24) tied it at 3 in the fifth on Andrew Benintendi’s nation-leading 20th home run.

Police on look-out for College World Series ticket scalpers

Sports

June 13th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) – Omaha police will be on the look-out for people trying to sell College World Series tickets for more than face value. The CWS opens Saturday and runs through June 23 or 24. According to city ordinance, tickets cannot be resold for more than face value on the grounds of TD Ameritrade Park or within a half-mile radius of the stadium.

Reserve tickets for games today and Sunday and for the best-of-three finals next week have face values of $36, $37 or $38. Reserve tickets for games Monday through Friday range from $31 to $36, and club seat prices range from $60 to $70. General admission tickets are $11.50 apiece at the box office or a book of 10 for $85.

Police discourage fans from buying tickets from street sellers.

Hurricanes, Gators will play for 242nd time, but 1st at CWS

Sports

June 13th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Miami and Florida are meeting at the College World Series for the first time tonight (Saturday night) in what will be their 242nd all-time meeting. The Hurricanes (49-15) are back in Omaha for the 24th time and first since 2008. The Gators (46-19) are at the CWS for the ninth time, the fourth since 2010.

Neither team has played a non-conference opponent more often. Florida leads the series 127-113-1 and has won 19 of the last 24, including two of three in February in Gainesville. Virginia (39-22) plays Arkansas (40-23) in the Bracket 1 opener this afternoon. Bracket 2 games Sunday pit TCU (49-13) against LSU (53-10) in the afternoon and Cal State Fullerton (39-23) against defending national champion Vanderbilt (47-19) at night.

 

Garcia dominates, Cardinals beat Royals 4-0

Sports

June 13th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Jaime Garcia pitched eight innings of four-hit ball and helped himself with an RBI single for the St. Louis Cardinals, who ended the Kansas City Royals’ four-game winning streak with a 4-0 victory in the opener of a high-profile weekend interleague series on Friday night. Jon Jay snapped a 2-for-24 slump this month with a two-out RBI triple in the second off Yordano Ventura (3-6), and Garcia followed with his 12th career RBI on an opposite-field single to left.

The Cardinals are 40-21 overall and 23-7 at home, both major league bests. They got a huge outing from Garcia (2-3), so far a success story off thoracic outlet surgery. Ventura lasted just three innings for the second straight start, removed as a precaution due to weakness in his pitching hand. In those two starts, he’s allowed six earned runs.
