Scores, schedules and results for the NCAA Tournament Super Regionals.

Baton Rouge Super Regional

Game 1: LSU 14, Kentucky 0

It was all LSU in this one as it took down Kentucky, 14-0. Tre’ Morgan hit a solo home run, his first of two long balls on the night, in the first inning to get the scoring started and the Tigers never looked back. Morgan went 4-for-5 with two home runs and three RBIs, while Tommy White had a monster night of his own, going 3-for-5 with two home runs and three RBIs. In his last start at Alex Box Stadium, potential top-five overall pick Paul Skenes fired 7.2 shutout innings with nine strikeouts, one walk and four hits allowed.


Game 2: LSU 8, Kentucky 3 (Kentucky eliminated)

LSU took down Kentucky 8-3 to advance to the College World Series for the first time since 2017. The Tigers scored five runs between the second and third innings, headlined by a Cade Beloso three-run home run out to right-centerfield. Ty Floyd did not have his best stuff, but Riley Cooper and Gavin Guidry were outstanding in relief to preserve to preserve the lead. Cooper threw three shutout innings and struck out a pair, while Gavin Guidry slammed the door with 2.2 shutout innings in which he struck out four. In what was his last at-bat at Alex Box Stadium, Dylan Crews laced a two-run double into left field to put the cherry on top of his time in Baton Rouge. While its season came to a close, it was still a successful 2023 season for Kentucky who won a regional for just the second time in program history and won 40 games for the first time since 2012.


Charlottesville Super Regional

Game 1: Duke 5, Virginia 4

Duke scored two runs in the eighth inning to come back and beat Virginia, 5-4. The Blue Devils got the scoring started in the third inning with a two-run home run off the bat of Damon Lux, but the Cavaliers took a 4-3 lead after a three-run sixth inning that was headlined by a Kyle Teel RBI single. After freshman Tyler Albright tied the game at four with an RBI fielder’s choice, junior first baseman Luke Storm got his barrel around an outside changeup and lined a go-ahead, RBI single into left field to give Duke the lead for good. With two outs in the bottom of the ninth and runners on first and second, star third baseman Jake Gelof lifted a deep fly ball into the left-center field gap, but Alrbight made a game-saving leaping catch at the wall to clinch a game one victory for the Blue Devils. The dynamic duo of Fran Oschell (2.2 IP) and James Tallon (1.0 IP) combined for 3.2 shutout innings out of the bullpen.


Game 2: Virginia 14, Duke 4

Virginia crushed Duke 14-4 to force a decisive game three with a trip to the College World Series on the line. The Cavaliers got the game started with a bang, as on the second pitch of the game Griff O’Ferrall got a fastball on the middle-third of the plate and drove it out to left-center field for a leadoff home run. The Cavaliers eventually took a 4-0 lead, but the Blue Devils made it a 4-3 game after a pair of run-scoring doubles courtesy of Luke Storm and Damon Lux. However, that would be as close as Duke would get, as in the top of the fifth inning Virginia extended its lead to 8-3 after an Ethan Anderson three-run home run and an Anthony Stephan solo blast. Jake Gelof went 3-for-5 with a double, a home run and four RBIs, and his eighth inning home run gave him the program record for both career home runs and home runs in a single season. Connelly Early turned in a quality start, as he struck out eight, walked none and did not allow an earned run across seven innings pitched. 


Game 3: Virginia 12, Duke 2 (Duke eliminated)

Virginia cruised past Duke 12-2 to advance to the College World Series for the second time in three seasons. The Cavaliers scored five runs in the second inning on four RBI singles, with Kyle Teel’s two-run knock being the big blow. Five runs was more than enough for starter Brian Edgington who turned in a complete-game effort. Edgington struck out 11, walked one, and surrendered just two runs. It was a balanced offensive attack for Virginia, as seven different hitters drove in at least one run and nine different had at least one hit.  


Eugene Super Regional

Game 1: Oregon 9, Oral Roberts 8

In what was the most exciting game of the day, Oregon pulled off the greatest comeback win in super regional history to defeat Oral Roberts, 9-8. The Golden Eagles exploded for eight runs in the third inning with the two big blows being a Matt Hogan 428-foot, three-run home run and a Jake McMurray three-run double. Prior to Friday night, teams in super regionals were 0-96 when trailing by eight or more runs. However, the Ducks would gradually chip away; they scored two runs in the bottom of the third inning on back-to-back home runs by Jacob Walsh and Bennett Thompson, three in the fourth inning on a Thompson three-run blast and one in the bottom of the sixth inning to rather efficiently trim Oral Roberts’ lead to 8-6. The Ducks would eventually tie the game in the bottom of the seventh inning after a Tanner Smith RBI single, and the score would remain tied until the bottom of the ninth. While Oregon’s offense came alive, its bullpen was equally as impressive. Four pitchers combined to shut out Oral Roberts for the final 6.1 innings of the game. Logan Mercado led the way with three shutout innings and five strikeouts, while Ian Umlandt chipped in 1.1 scoreless innings of his own. After Gavin Grant and Rikuu Nishida walked to lead off the bottom of the ninth, Oral Roberts brought in star closer Cade Denton. Denton retired Bryce Boettcher after he failed to lay down a bunt, but Drew Cowley came through with a walkoff single just four pitches later to send the Eugene crowd into a frenzy. 


Game 2: Oral Roberts 8, Oregon 7

For the second day in a row, Oral Roberts and Oregon provided the most exciting game of the super regional slate. It was a back-and-forth affair with six ties or lead changes after just five innings, but the Ducks appeared to be on their way to Omaha after a Drew Smith two-run triple extended their lead to 7-4 in the seventh inning. However, the Golden Eagles scored one run in the seventh inning on a Jake McMurray RBI double and one in the eighth on a Jonah Cox solo home run. With the home run, Cox extended his hitting streak to 46 games. After Cade Denton held Oregon scoreless in the top half of the ninth inning, Justin Quinn laced a walkoff, two-run double down the left field line to keep Oral Roberts’ season alive and force a decisive game three with a trip to the College World Series at stake.


Game 3: Oral Roberts 11, Oregon 6 (Oregon eliminated)

Oral Roberts knocked off Oregon 11-6 to advance to the College World Series for the first time in 45 years. The Ducks jumped out to a 3-1 lead in the first inning after a Tanner Smith three-run home run, a lead they would hold for three innings. The Golden Eagles took the lead in the fourth after a Jake McMurray RBI single, a Matt Hogan bases-loaded walk, and a Mac McCroskey RBI fielder’s choice. Oregon cut ORU’s lead to 5-4 after Sabin Ceballos’ 18th home run, which is a new Oregon single-season record, but the Golden Eagles struck for three more runs in the seventh inning to extend their lead to 8-4. They would eventually tack on three more runs in the ninth inning after a pair of walks and a hit-by-pitch with the bases loaded. Dalton Pence turned in three strong innings out of the bullpen in which he allowed one run on one hit. Oral Roberts is just the third four-seed in tournament history to advance to the College World Series.


Fort Worth Super Regional

Game 1: TCU 4, Indiana State 1

TCU knocked off Indiana State 4-1 and is now one win away from advancing to the College World Series. Austin Davis, who went 4-for-10 with seven RBIs in the Fayetteville Regional, got the scoring started with a solo home run in the top of the third inning. Later in the inning, Cole Fontenelle crushed a knee-high fastball out to dead center field for a two-run home run to extend TCU’s lead to 3-0. The story of the game was freshman righthander Kole Klecker. Klecker spun seven shutout innings in which he allowed three hits, walked only one and struck out a season-high nine hitters. His fastball played well up in the zone, and he supplemented his heater with a slider that flashed above-average. Pitchability specialist Matt Jachec was the tough-luck loser for Indiana State. Jachec turned in eight strong innings in which he allowed four runs on seven hits, but his sinker-slider combination allowed him to avoid hard contact for the most part. The Sycamores’ lone run of the game came on a Keegan Watson solo home run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning. 






Game 2: TCU 6, Indiana State 4 (Indiana State eliminated)

The Horned Frogs toppled the Sycamores 6-4 to advance to the College World Series for the first time since 2017. Indiana State got off to a fast start in the first inning thanks to RBI singles by Keegan Watson and Miguel Rivera. Connor Fenlong held TCU scoreless for the first three frames, but the Horned Frogs’ offense exploded for five runs in the fourth inning to take the lead for good. Tre Richardson and Anthony Silva each hit RBI singles, while Luke Boyers contributed an RBI double. In the fifth inning, Cole Fontenelle hit his second home run in as many days to stretch TCU’s lead to 6-2. Indiana State scored a pair of runs in the sixth inning, but Ben Abeldt (2.2) and Garrett Wright (1.0) slammed the door with 3.2 strong innings out of the bullpen. Although its season came to an end, it was a remarkable run for Indiana State, who enjoyed its best season in program history.



Gainesville Super Regional

Game 1: Florida 5, South Carolina 4

Florida took down South Carolina 5-4 in what was a tightly contested game throughout. The Gamecocks could not have asked for a better start, as on the second pitch of the game Will McGillis demolished a leadoff home run. They would tack on one more run in the inning thanks to a Gavin Casas run-scoring single, but as they have done all season, the Gators punched right back in the bottom half of the inning and tied the game on a Josh Rivera two-run blast. South Carolina had a 3-2 lead going into the bottom of the fifth inning, but Florida crushed another game-tying home run, this one coming off the bat of Tyler Shelnut. The score would not remain tied for long, as in the bottom of the sixth inning BT Riopelle blasted a go-ahead home run off the batter’s eye. In the bottom of the eighth inning, Shelnut delivered a clutch RBI single to give Florida some breathing room. While McGillis hit his second home run of the game in the ninth inning to make it a one-run ballgame, Brandon Neely got Braylen Wimmer to ground out to seal the victory. Brandon Sproat turned in a strong start, allowing three runs with seven strikeouts across six innings pitched. Freshman lefthander Cade Fisher fired two key shutout innings in relief.


Game 2: Florida 4, South Carolina 0 (South Carolina eliminated)

Florida shut out South Carolina 4-0 to advance to the College World Series for the first time since 2018. Colby Halter laced a two-run triple in the second inning to put Florida up 2-0, and as it turns out two runs were more than enough for ace righthander Hurston Waldrep. Waldrep turned in what was arguably the best start of his collegiate career, as he spun eight shutout innings, struck out 13, walked two and allowed only three hits—all of which were singles. His electric pitch mix was firing on all cylinders, with each of his four offerings showing true out pitch potential.


Hattiesburg Super Regional

Game 1: Southern Miss 5, Tennessee 3

The Golden Eagles took a 4-0 lead by the fifth inning after a Tate Parker two-run triple and a pair of solo home runs off the bats of Dustin Dickerson and Nick Monistere. Southern Miss seemed to be in a great spot to take the first game of this best-of-three series, but the Tennessee bats came alive and scored three runs in the fifth inning to make it a 4-3 game. Hunter Ensley got hit by a pitch with the bases loaded, while Jared Dickey hit a two-run single. However that was all the Volunteers would get, as 6-foot-7 lefthander Justin Storm slammed the door with three strikeouts across 4.1 shutout innings.


Game 2: Tennessee 8, Southern Miss 4

For the second time in as many games, Southern Miss built a four-run lead in the early going. Dustin Dickerson, who has been excellent in postseason play, hit an RBI single and Christopher Sargent belted a three-run home run. With two-time All-American Tanner Hall on the mound, the Golden Eagles seemed destined for Omaha. What transpired in the top of the fourth inning was something that had never happened before in Tanner Hall’s collegiate career: Tennessee tagged Hall for six runs, a career-high, after a pair of run-scoring singles and a mammoth 479-foot, two-run home run off the bat of Blake Burke. After a rough third inning, potential top-10 overall pick Chase Dollander settled in and fired five consecutive scoreless innings. Dollander wound up throwing eight strong innings in which he allowed four runs on seven hits, struck out seven, and walked only one. Following a Dustin Lynch walk to begin the bottom of the ninth inning, Coach Vitello called upon Chase Burns to close the game. Burns did exactly that, as he recorded a strikeout and induced a double play to force a decisive game three.



Game 3: Tennessee 5, Southern Miss 0 (Southern Miss eliminated)

Tennessee shut out Southern Miss 5-0 to advance to the College World Series for the second time in three years, avenging last year’s Super Regional exit in the process. Griffin Merritt put the Volunteers up 1-0 after an RBI single in the 2nd, but they would eventually extend their to 5-0 after a Zane Denton three-run home run and Maui Ahuna solo blast in the fifth and seventh innings respectively. Southern Miss had no answer for Drew Beam who spun six shutout innings with seven strikeouts and only one walk. While this is the end of the road for Coach Scott Berry in Hattiesburg, it was an incredible 14-year, 528-win run as head coach.


Stanford Super Regional

Game 1: Texas 7, Stanford 5

Texas used a five-run ninth inning to come back and beat Stanford 7-5. With the Longhorns trailing 5-2 with the bases loaded and nobody out, Mitchell Daly lifted a fly ball into right-center field that looked like it was going to be caught, but after a miscommunication in the outfield it kicked off Saborn Campbell‘s glove and fell to the ground, resulting in two runs. After a Jared Thomas RBI groundout tied the game at five, Porter Brown lined a two-run single into right field to give Texas a 7-5 lead. Zane Morehouse closed the game in emphatic fashion, as he struck out the side in order in the bottom of the ninth.


Game 2: Stanford 8, Texas 3

Stanford took down Texas 8-3 to force a third game in this marquee Super Regional series. The Longhorns took a 2-1 lead in the third after a Jared Thomas RBI triple and Dylan Campbell sac-fly, but the Cardinal took the game by the horns in the fifth inning after a go-ahead, RBI double by Malcolm Moore and a towering two-run home run off the bat of Drew Bowser. Veteran shortstop Mitchell Daly cut the Cardinal lead to 5-3 after a solo home run in the seventh inning, but Stanford pushed across a trio of insurance runs in the ninth inning to put the game out of reach. It is difficult to put Quinn Mathews pitching performance and competitive nature into words. In his last start at historic Sunken Diamond, Mathews went the distance in what was a 156-pitch, herculean effort. The senior lefthander allowed just three runs, struck out 16, and walked one. As it has been all season, Mathews’ changeup was excellent, but his slider was just as lethal. Mathews was able to front-door the pitch to lefthanded hitters and back-foot it to righthanded hitters. His fastball was an effective offering as well, especially up in the zone. The Cardinal and Longhorns this evening face off in what is sure to be an exciting third game.


Game 3: Stanford 7, Texas 6 (Texas eliminated)

Stanford defeated Texas 7-6 to advance to its third consecutive College World Series. The Cardinal had two separate three-run leads erased, as Jack O’Dowd lined a three-run double into right field in the fourth inning to tie the game at three, while in the eighth inning Dylan Campbell laced an RBI single up the middle to tie the game at six. After Joey Dixon fired a scoreless top of the ninth, the bottom half of the inning was filled with chaos. Alberto Rios thought he hit a walkoff home run, but as it turns out the ball hit off the “Pac-12” logo on the wall which resulted in a double for the conference player of the year. Following a Malcolm Moore two-out walk, Drew Bowser lifted a sky-high fly ball into centerfield that appeared to be an easy out, but it got lost in the Palo Alto sky and fell aimlessly to the ground for a walkoff single.


Winston-Salem Super Regional

Game 1: Wake Forest 5, Alabama 4

Wake Forest outlasted Alabama 5-4 and is now one win away from its first trip to the College World Series since 1955. Tommy Hawke drove a 95 mph Luke Holman fastball off the scoreboard for a leadoff home run, and Justin Johnson hit a solo shot of his own in the second inning to give the Demon Deacons a quick 2-0 lead. Wake would tack on another run in the second thanks to a wild pitch, but the Crimson Tide would eventually tie the game in the top of the fourth inning on a Colby Shelton two-run home run. Wake Forest took the lead for good in the bottom of the fifth as Danny Corona turned on an inside fastball and belted a solo home run out to right field. Caden Rose hit his second home run of the game in the eight inning to cut Wake’s lead to 5-4, but Sean Sullivan struck out the side in the ninth inning to slam the door. Sullivan struck out seven and allowed one earned run across 2.2 innings pitched. Potential top-15 overall pick Rhett Lowder earned the win to improve his record to a perfect 15-0.


Game 2: Wake Forest 22, Alabama 5 (Alabama eliminated)

Wake Forest dismantled Alabama 22-5 to advance to the College World Series for the first time since 1955. In what was perhaps the most impressive offensive performance all season, the Demon Deacons slugged nine home runs, including three from Brock Wilken and two from Danny Corona Jr. en route to their route of the Crimson Tide. All nine starters recorded at least one hit, while eight drove in at least one run. While the offense was the story of the game, sophomore lefthander Josh Hartle turned in six quality innings in which he struck out 11 and walked one. The lethal back-end duo of Michael Massey and Camden Minacci combined for two shutout innings and a pair of strikeouts to slam the door. Wake Forest heads to Omaha riding a five-game win streak during which it has outscored its opponents by a ridiculous 75-16 margin.
