Richie Martin doubled twice and reached four times, leading Florida to a 10-5 victory over Virginia in the College World Series on Friday.

The Gators (52-17) forced a second Bracket 1 final while ruining the return of Virginia ace Nathan Kirby, who had been sidelined for nine weeks because of a strained back muscle. The winner of Saturday’s game will go to the best-of-three finals starting Monday against defending champion Vanderbilt or TCU. Virginia (41-23), which lost for the first time in eight NCAA Tournament games, is trying to make the finals for the second straight year.
