Sam Houston State completes one of the smoothest triple plays ever witnessed

Sophomore Jackson Lueck was 4-for-5 with four runs batted in, none bigger than his walk-off single in the bottom of the ninth, as FSU beat Sam Houston State 7-6 in the first game of the Tallahassee Super Regional Saturday afternoon on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium. Then in the ninth, the Seminoles got runners on base for Lueck, who pelted a single to right.

FSU found itself in an early hole but pieced together runs before exploding for three straight RBI singles for a 6-6 tie in the bottom of the seventh.

Studs of the Game: Jackson Lueck had a stellar game, going 4-for-5 with four RBIs, including the game-winner and a run. For Sam Houston State, Hunter Hearn was 2-for-4 with a pair of RBIs.

Nearly everything that could go wrong was going wrong for the Florida State Seminoles in Saturday's first game of their Super Regional series against the Sam Houston State Bearkats.

Drew Carlton (5-4), who was FSU's third pitcher, got the win with 1 1/3 scoreless innings.

Drew Ellis homered twice, Josh Stowers and Logan Taylor each delivered extra-base RBI hits and lefthander Brendan McKay scattered eight hits and two runs as the Cardinals topped the Wildcats at Louisville to become the first school to clinch a College World Series berth.

McKay (10-3) had to work at times but was effective, striking out nine in 62⁄3 innings to win a showdown with Kentucky ace Sean Hjelle (11-4). The teams will meet again on Sunday.

Both teams scored a run in the third but could have had more. Holton issued a walk and despite getting a fielder's choice, the Bearkats loaded the bases via misplayed ball. Walls singled leading off and Busby was hit by a pitch.

Gavin (8-2) walked two and struck out five.

So the Bearkats with a "K" are locked into action with Florida State in the opening volley of the best of three super regional series at the Seminoles' home park.
