"Certainly felt good about the way Mitchell started the game for us and Jackson on their side was beyond wonderful", TCU head coach Jim Schlossnagle said. "I am just trying to keep the game simple and it has helped me".

TCU started the season at No. 1 by Collegiate Baseball Newspaper and have stayed in the top 10 all season. He is 4-for-12 with three runs and three RBIs in the CWS and has produced some key hits for the Horned Frogs. Austen Wade and Zack Humphreys followed with back-to-back doubles, giving TCU an early lead. Not until the bottom of the third did the Beavers manage a buildup to load the bases, then a walk plated Michael Gretler for the Beavs' first run.

Rivera homered and Dalton Guthrie drove in a run with a double as UF tied the game in the bottom of the third.

"We've got four teams left with one loss".

The story of the College World Series is that teams will not go down without a fight. Florida knocked Traver out in the fourth but was unable to get to the TCU bullpen.

The Frogs scored seven runs with two outs.

The Cardinals used a five-run inning to prevail against the Aggies in their first game. He also has 96 strikeouts after whiffing in his first two at-bats on Friday, making him just three Ks shy of Tommy Mendonca's single-season Division I record.

TCU blew the game open in the sixth inning, taking advantage of three walks and a bases-clearing double from Evan Skoug to make it 8-2.

TCU doubled up in the sixth adding four more runs to the scoreboard. Their nine runs scored Friday surpassed the number of runs scored through its first three games in Omaha, eight.

"We have other guys down there that have to pitch", said Schlossnagle, whose team was beaten twice by Coastal Carolina a year ago in this bracket-final round. "And I don't know how that would have affected things, but it certainly would have put us in a pretty good position, that's for sure".

King earned the win after leaving the game in the eighth, pitching 3.1 innings of one-hit baseball, striking out five and walking just two on 58 pitches.

TCU has never been to the finals, and for both teams, it would mean a shot at their first national championship. According to his catcher, King didn't even have his best stuff Friday.

"He had us aced up for a while", Skoug said. "He made pitches when he needed to, got ground balls when he needed them and I think without having his best stuff he did an awesome job of competing".

Florida's Jackson Kowar pitches during the first inning of an NCAA College World Series baseball game against TCU in Omaha, Neb., Friday, June 23, 2017. It'll be a rematch of aces: Alex Faedo will pitch for Florida, and Jared Janczak will take the mound for TCU. Higher-seeded teams have won all 10 games at the CWS, an unprecedented run. TCU relishes the chance to face him again.

Skoug said it was a matter of time before the Frogs, who scored seven of their runs with two outs, broke through against Kowar.

The Florida Gators are one win away from advancing to the championship round at the College World Series.

Junior right-hander Alex Faedo, a first-round Major League Baseball draft pick this summer, struck out 11 over seven innings in a 3-0 win against TCU on Sunday.

TCU is in the bracket final despite its Nos.
