Florida State, overcoming a massive weather delay, routed visiting Sam Houston State 19-0 Sunday in Game 2 of their baseball Super Region and advanced to the College World Series.
The Seminoles (45-21) won both Super Region games and head to their 22nd CWS (first since 2012) having won 12 of their past 13 games.
In Gainesville, bad weather led to a suspension of the Gators-Wake Forest Game 2 until today. Wake Forest leads 5-4 and will be batting in the bottom of the fifth when the game resumes at 1:04. If necessary, Game 3 on ESPN2 will follow 55 minutes after the conclusion of the suspended game.
Florida, which won the opener 2-1 in 11 innings Saturday night after a nearly four-hour rain delay, needs one win to advance to the CWS, which starts Saturday in Omaha, Nebraska. The Gators are seeking a third consecutive CWS and their sixth in eight seasons.
In Tallahassee, a scheduled noon start was delayed almost eight hours. FSU led 15-0 after four innings. Shortstop Taylor Walls reached base in all seven plate appearances and went 3-for-3 with two homers, four RBIs and five runs scored.
The Seminoles had 13 hits among 10 players (four home runs for the first time this season) against seven pitchers.
MORE SUPER REGIONS: Cal State Fullerton and TCU advanced to the CWS. Colton Eastman allowed one hit and one run in seven innings as visiting Cal State Fullerton beat Long Beach State 2-1. Host TCU reached Omaha for the fourth straight year and fifth time since 2010 with an 8-1 victory over Missouri State. Late Saturday, host Oregon State beat Vanderbilt 9-2 to return to the CWS for the first time since 2013.
