Gators beat LSU to win their first College World Series

Maybe this wasn't Florida coach Kevin O'Sullivan's best team. It is, however, his first national championship team. A year after the Gators went two games and out at the College World Series with a team seeded No. 1 and loaded with high draft picks, they won five of six in Omaha and completed a sweep of Southeastern Conference rival LSU in the finals with a 6-1 victory Tuesday night. The Gators scored four runs in the eighth inning to pull away and now, for the first time in the program's 103-year history, the championship trophy will be with the team when it travels back to Gainesville.

Florida got a dominant performance from Brady Singer, a big defensive play when LSU was threatening and just enough offense. Now, after a 4-3 win in Game 1 of the College World Series on Monday night, the Gators are one win from their first national championship in baseball. But with LSU all-time wins leader Jared Poche' starting on Tuesday and first-round draft pick Alex Lange available if there's a Game 3, the Tigers believe this best-of-three series matching Southeastern Conference rivals is just getting started.

Gators face LSU in best of three CWS Finals starting tonight

The matchup for the College World Series finals certainly bolsters the case for those who say the best baseball in the land is played in the Southeastern Conference. To get to the best-of-three finals starting Monday night, LSU (52-18) beat an Oregon State team, which had the highest winning percentage of any program in four decades, twice in two days. Florida (50-19) became the fourth team in CWS history to shut out an opponent twice with a pair of 3-0 wins over TCU wrapped around a 9-2 loss to the Horned Frogs.

Gators beat 3-0 TCU advance to the CWS finals against LSU

Alex Faedo dominated TCU for a second straight time, and now he and his Florida Gators teammates will face a familiar opponent in the College World Series finals. The Detroit Tigers' first-round draft pick pitched three-hit ball for 7 1/3 shutout innings to lead the Gators to a 3-0 win Saturday night, setting up an all-Southeastern Conference best-of-three finals against LSU beginning Monday. No. 3 national seed Florida (50-19) is in the finals for the first time since 2011 and looking for its first championship in baseball. Fourth-seeded LSU, which shared the SEC regular-season title with the Gators, advanced with a 6-1 win over No. 1 Oregon State on Saturday.
