OMAHA, Neb. (AP) _ Harrison Bader led off the game with the first of Florida’s four home runs, Alex Faedo and two relievers combined on a four-hitter, and the Gators knocked Miami out of the College World Series with a 10-2 win Wednesday night.

It was the second time in five days the Gators (51-17) dominated Miami, and now they’ll play Virginia on Friday needing to beat the Cavaliers twice to reach next week’s best-of-three finals. The Hurricanes (50-17) went 1-2 in their first CWS appearance since 2008.

Two nights after Virginia beat Florida 1-0 on a two-hitter, the Gators’ offense was back to its usual prolific self against the Hurricanes. The Gators outscored Miami 25-5 in the two CWS meetings, with Saturday’s 15-3 win the most lopsided postseason loss in Miami history.

Buddy Reed, Richie Martin and Peter Alonso also homered for the Gators.
