Indiana came to town for Super Regional play this past weekend and will now head for the College World Series after taking 10-9 and 11-6 wins over host Florida State.
Saturday’s 10-9 loss was a heartbreaker. The Seminoles left the tying and winning runs at second and third in the bottom of the ninth when Hoosier pitcher Will Coursen-Carr came in and picked up a save.
Kyle Schwarker had four RBIs and a home run for Indiana in the game. John Nogowski hit a home run for Florida State and Giovanny Alfonso had three hits.
On Sunday, Sam Travis and Scott Donley hit four-baggers for the Hoosiers and Coursen-Carr got credit for the win, getting Indiana to the CWS for the first time.
Indiana takes a 48-16 record to Omaha and will meet Louisville in the first round of the CWS.
LSU, UCLA, North Carolina State, Oregon State and Mississippi State are other teams that have punched their ticket. North Carolina and South Carolina played Tuesday to decide the eighth spot of the event.
FSU finished its season with an outstanding record of 47-17 in what many thought would be a rebuilding year for the Tribe.
