TCU's Wymer stymies Louisville in 4-3 CWS win; Florida next

TCU's Wymer stymies Louisville in 4-3 CWS win; Florida next

Horned Frog pitcher Sean Wymer came into the game in the fifth inning with TCU holding the 4-3 lead.

"In the fall Kirk dropped his arm angle just a little but, and that's allowed him to command his fastball more", Schlossnagle said. They should have had another run score earlier in the inning when, with runners on first and second, Steven Kwan sliced a ball down the left-field line that bounced off the wall and was ruled foul. The loss forces a win-or-go-home rematch versus TCU Saturday night, where the victor will advance to the College World Series final, and the loser's season will come to an end. Rubio walked Zach Humphreys to re-load the bases, and Skoug unloaded them when he pumped a double to right-center field to cap a five-run inning and pad the TCU advantage to 8-2. Milchin retired the first batter he faced before surrendering a single and two walks to load the bases.

"We're excited we're 2-0", O'Sullivan said Friday.

Wade, the TCU leadoff man, singled in Merrill from second to stretch the Horned Frog lead to 4-0 after the Cardinals replaced Bennett with reliever Adam Wolf. Tyler Dyson and star closer Michael Byrne are available in the bullpen. "I had to get that out because you wanted to keep the game, obviously, in our favor". "Nothing we can do about tonight". With two away, Elliott Barzilli singled, stole second, stole third and scored on a double by Connor Wanhanen (2 for 3).

The Cards got one run back in the third thanks to a Josh Stowers single that scored Devin Mann.

Wade made it 5-3 with an RBI grounder off Rubio before Skoug broke open the game with his three-run double. At that point, with two outs in the third inning, it felt like the TCU offense could be in store for a long game.

"I don't want another bad day in Omaha because you have to say goodbye to Brian Howard and Mitchell Traver, and that's the worst thing ever", Skoug said.

"Our scouting report didn't show how good his change-up was", TCU's Evan Skoug said. He mixed his pitches. "So the first two years we had a sour taste in our mouth because we haven't been able to finish the deal".




Drew Ellis came into the CWS as the Cardinals' leading hitter, but he was 1 for 10 after popping out in the eighth with a runner on first. I don't know if I should've been thrown out, but that's not my call to make. But there's some guys that are obviously not feeling great about themselves right now, and maybe I can take pressure off them by moving them down a little bit.

Garrett Milchin, who took over for Kowar starting the sixth, removed himself in the middle of facing his fourth batter because of right forearm tightness.

In five CWS games in 2015, Florida's starter made it to the sixth inning once.

The biggest part of Watson's eight hits - he didn't have one in the first game against Florida State.

There have now been 16 home runs hit in the 2017 College World Series, which establishes a new event record since it moved to T.D. Ameritrade Park in 2011.

Wymer entered the game in the fifth inning with TCU leading Louisville by a run and needing to retire Dick Howser Trophy victor and the No. 4 overall pick in the 2017 MLB Draft Brendan McKay, with the tying run in scoring position and the go-ahead run at first base.
