Texas A&M bests FSU, into CWS

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) – Michael Wacha continued his brilliant postseason for Texas A&M, allowing two runs on three hits in 7 1-3 innings as the Aggies defeated Florida State 11-2 on Monday night to advance to the College World Series.

In four postseason outings, Wacha (9-3) has allowed just three earned runs in 28 1-3 innings.

Texas A&M (47-20), which won 2 of 3 games in the Tallahassee Super Regional, reached the CWS for the first time since 1999.

Adam Smith had a two-run homer and Kevin Gonzalez had a two-run double that was part of a six-run first inning for Texas A&M.

Stuart Tapley had a solo home run and Rafael Lopez had an RBI double for Florida State (46-19). Hunter Scantling lasted just four batters for the Seminoles.
