The Arkansas Razorbacks swept Florida State, Saturday, winning the Super-Regional and punched their ticket to Omaha, Nebraska and the NCAA College World Series.
Senior Andrew Darr started his first game in almost a month and made the most of his opportunity by collecting four hits including the game-winning walk-off double in the bottom of the ninth to lead the No. 16 Arkansas Razorback Baseball team to a 9-8 victory over the No. 5 Florida State Seminoles in Super Regional action and earn themselves a trip to the College World Series. With one out and a runners on first and second, Darr hit a shot deep into the gap in left field driving in both runners and sending the Razorbacks to Omaha. Congratulations to the Hawgs and their fans. As a resident of Northwest Arkansas and a baseball fan, I couldn't be happier for these guys!
*Sniff*... Although a Canadian, there was a fella I was friends with several moons ago who went to school at Florida State and indeed was a ballplayer for 'em.... so I was kinda routing for the opposite number... but, sadly, the better team won in the end.ReplyDelete
I saw hi-lights from the game yesterday while I was watching LSU eliminate Rice to advance. I really enjoy this time of year watching the CWS.ReplyDelete
