CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — Indiana 11,

Florida State 6

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Sam Travis hit a tiebreaking two-run homer to help Indiana reach the College World Series for the first time in school history.

The Hoosiers (48-14) played with plenty of poise on the road in their first super regional, sweeping the Seminoles.

Will Coursen-Carr (5-0) pitched four innings of relief for Indiana, allowing just one earned run. Coursen-Carr earned the win in the Big Ten tournament final, regional title game and super regional clincher.

After Florida State (47-17) scored three runs in the top of the fifth to tie the game 5-5, Travis gave the Hoosiers the lead for good in the bottom of the inning.

Scott Sitz (10-2) allowed seven runs, six of them earned, in 4 1-3 innings.

Louisville 2, Vanderbilt 1

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Jeff Thompson surrendered one run in seven strong innings to make Louisville’s two early runs stand up, sending the Cardinals to the College World Series for the second time.

The Big East Conference pitcher of the year struck out nine, allowed three hits and threw 124 pitches. Zak Wasserman and Sutton Whiting drove in runs in the second inning for the Cardinals (51-12).

Vanderbilt freshman Zander Wiel homered in the sixth inning to account for the only extra-base hit of the series. The Commo-dores (54-12), seeded No. 2 overall, stranded 11 runners.
