NCAA Baseball Super Regionals 2011: Texas A&M Beats Florida State 11-2, Advances To College World Series

Texas A&M grabs the final spot in the College World Series next week in Omaha with a convincing 11-2 victory over Florida State Monday night in Tallahassee.

It was a tale of two games with Florida State and Texas A&M. In Sunday's game it was Texas A&M that struggled to throw strikes as they allowed 12 walks to Seminole hitters. On Monday it was the Florida State pitching staff that struggled to find the zone as they allowed 9 walks and five of those runners came around to score.

The Aggies threw up a six-spot in the first inning as Kevin Gonzalez blasted the big two-RBI double to break the game open to 4-0 at that point. But it was Jacob House and Adam Smith that led the Aggies offensively on the day as the 4-5 hitters combined to go 4-5 with four runs scored, four RBI's, three walks and a home run. The Aggies added two more runs in the 2nd inning with Smith's two-run blast to extend the lead to 8-0 for the Aggies.

Michael Wacha was fantastic on the mound for Texas A&M as he went 7.1 innings, allowing only two runs on three hits, while striking out eight to pick up the decisive game three victory for Texas A&M.

Texas A&M joins Texas as the two representatives of the Big 12 in the College World Series this year. They are joined by Vanderbilt, Virginia, Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina and California. One of these teams is going to be the 2011 National Champion.
