ACC In The CWS - Clemson, FSU Win

CLEMSON 6, Arizona State 3 – Clemson became the first team to beat Arizona State ace Seth Blair with a 6-3 victory over the top-seeded Sun Devils in the College World Series on Monday.

The Tigers tagged Blair (12-1) for five runs on seven hits and five walks in 4 1/3 innings to advance to a winner's bracket game against Oklahoma on Tuesday.

The Sun Devils (53-8) meet South Carolina in an elimination game, also Tuesday.

Casey Harman pitched six strong innings for the Tigers, who continued their postseason surge. Clemson (44-23) came into the CWS averaging 11 runs and 15 hits in its last five games, and pounded 14 singles off Blair and three relievers. Every Clemson starter had at least one hit.
The game was scheduled for Sunday night, but rain forced it to be postponed until Monday.

FLORIDA STATE 8, Florida 5 – Left Filder/Pitcher Mike McGee hit a tie-breaking three-run homer in the third inning, laid down a squeeze bunt in the fourth and moved in from left field to pick up the save after Florida made things interesting in the ninth.

“Pitching, it’s great to end the game and get the save. I like to be in control,” McGee said. “But hitting the home run is the best feeling there is.”

The Seminoles (48-19) will play Wednesday night against the loser of Monday night’s TCU-UCLA game. The Gators (47-17) lost for the fourth time in five meetings this season with their Sunshine State rival.
