FSU Eliminates Florida

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) _ Mike McGee hit a tie-breaking three-run homer

in the third inning and picked up the save after Florida made

things interesting in the ninth, leading Florida State to an 8-5

victory in a College World Series elimination game Monday.

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.

Florida loaded the bases against Daniel Bennett. Preston Tucker

doubled to drive in three runs.

McGee came on and gave up a single to Austin Maddox and hit Matt

den Dekker, loading the bases with one out. Shortstop Stephen

Cardullo caught Mike Zunino's line drive and flipped to second

baseman Devon Travis for the double play.
