Hurricanes hope to play enough to get righty back

OMAHA, Neb. — As Miami faces another World Series elimination game today, coach Jim Morris hopes starter David Gutierrez will have another chance to pitch.

Gutierrez, a right-hander, had X-rays after taking a line drive to his pitching shoulder from Florida State's Tommy Oravetz in the second inning of Monday's game, which the Hurricanes won 7-5. Gutierrez is the younger brother of Hurricanes reliever Carlos.

Miami (53-10) faces Stanford tonight at 7 (ESPN2).

"He says he's fine," Morris said. "No question he'll be sore, but he'll be getting treatment and hopefully we'll go long enough for him to pitch again."

LSU 6, RICE 5: Blake Dean's three-run double off the leftfield wall capped a comeback as the Tigers erased a three-run deficit in the ninth inning for the second time in three games.

LSU (49-18-1) plays Thursday against North Carolina. Rice (47-15) led 5-0 in the seventh.

FRESNO ST. 5, N. CAROLINA 3: Alan Ahmady hit the go-ahead single in the fifth and five Bulldogs pitchers combined to hold UNC scoreless for all but one inning. Fresno State (44-29), the first No. 4 region seed to reach the CWS, needs one more win to reach the best-of-three final that starts Monday. The Bulldogs scored two in the fifth to take a 4-3 lead.

FSU TRACK HONOR: After leading Florida State to a third straight men's outdoor national title, Bob Braman was named Division I Coach of the Year by the United States Track & Field/Cross Country Coaches Association for a third straight year.

"To be named the top collegiate track coach in country is quite an honor and I am very appreciative of it," he said. "While my name may be the only one on the award, it's really a tribute to the work of the entire staff."

OBITUARY: Ambrose "Bud" Dudley, who founded the Liberty Bowl in 1959 and oversaw the game for decades, died Monday in Memphis at 88. Mr. Dudley played halfback at Notre Dame in 1940 and 1941.

Times staff writer Brian Landman contributed to this report.
