College World Series Analysis

Monday, June 24 game

Tennessee 6, Texas A&M 5, Tennessee wins National Championship

I don’t root for any specific team, but part of me was happy that Tennessee won yesterday so we would get a winner-take-all National Championship game tonight. It felt like a fitting end for what has been an exciting season from coast-to-coast, and the game itself certainly lived up to the hype.

Future first-round pick Christian Moore set the tone early for the Volunteers with a lead-off home run to get the scoring started. After Texas A&M punched back in the top of the third and tied the game on a Gavin Grahovac single, Tennessee scratched across two runs of its own on a Dylan Dreiling sac-fly and a Dean Curley RBI single to take a 3-1 lead.

The 3-1 score held all the way until the bottom of the seventh inning, where Tennessee appeared to take control of the game with an emphatic three-run frame. CWS Most Outstanding Player Dylan Dreiling hit a towering two-run home run — his third in the CWS Finals — while Kavares Tears hit a ringing RBI double into right-centerfield. A fantastic relay by Jace LaViolette and Ali Camarillo led to the throw beating Hunter Ensley to the plate, but Ensley somehow got inside and around the tag of catcher Jackson Appel with a nifty juke-like move.

However, Texas A&M went anything but quietly into the Omaha night. In its half of the eighth inning, A&M scored a pair of runs thanks to an RBI single by Hayden Schott and a Caden Sorrell RBI double.

Following a scoreless frame from sensational southpaw Evan Aschenbeck, the Aggies cut Tennessee’s lead to just one run following a Jackson Appel RBI single and a run-scoring wild pitch. But with two outs and the bases clear, Aaron Combs struck out Ted Burton to lift Tennessee to its first-ever National Championship.

It was an incredible season from end-to-end for the Volunteers. Not only were they the first No. 1 overall seed to win the National title since Miami in 1999, but their 60 total wins are the most for a CWS champion since 1989.

Sunday, June 23 game

Tennessee 4, Texas A&M 1

With its backs against the wall, Tennessee responded with a hard-fought 4-1 win to force a decisive National Championship game tomorrow night. Texas A&M again struck first, though, as in the bottom of the first inning Jace LaViolette hit a mammoth solo home run to give the Aggies an early lead. Thanks to excellent pitching on both sides, the score remained 1-0 Texas A&M into the seventh inning. But with two outs and a runner on first, Dylan Dreiling turned around a left-on-left fastball and deposited a go-ahead, two-run home run over the bullpen in right field.

The top of the eighth inning for the Volunteers was essentially a carbon copy of the seventh, as with two outs and a runner on first Cal Stark broke out of his 0-for-16 slump with a no-doubt, two-run blast over the bullpen in left field.

Texas A&M put two runners on in both the eighth and ninth innings, but were unable to scratch a run across. Tennessee’s pitching was excellent all afternoon, but especially righthander Aaron Combs who struck out five across four scoreless innings.

Saturday, June 22 game

Texas A&M 9, Tennessee 5

Texas A&M last night put all its chips on the table in its game one victory over Tennessee. Though the Aggies are weathering two huge injuries to Braden Montgomery and Shane Sdao — and other members of the lineup are playing through injuries — they continue to find ways to win.

There was surprisingly little doubt about the result of last night’s game after Texas A&M took a commanding 7-1 lead thanks to a five-run third inning that was aided by some shoddy Tennessee defense. True freshman Gavin Grahovac set the tone with a lead-off home run just three pitches into the game, while Kaeden Kent continues to be the Aggies’ best hitter. Last night, he went 3-for-5 with a two-run home run and four RBIs, and since June 8 he is 12-for-25 with two doubles and two home runs.

Following four solid innings from prized southpaw Ryan Prager (4 IP, 8 H, 2 R, 0 BB, 6 K), Evan Aschenbeck eventually slammed the door with seven strikeouts across 2.2 shutout innings. Although little is known about who Texas A&M will throw this afternoon, it is just one win away from its first-ever National Championship.

Wednesday, June 19 games

Texas A&M 6, Florida 0, Florida eliminated

Thanks to timely hitting and excellent pitching, Texas A&M shut out Florida 6-0 to advance to the CWS Finals where it will take on Tennessee. The Aggies got on the board early thanks to four first inning walks that led to two runs. The score remained 2-0 until the top of the fifth inning, but Gavin Grahovac hammered a double into the left-centerfield gap to stretch their lead to 3-0. After another shutout frame by Justin Lamkin (5 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 9 K), freshman Caden Sorrell provided the exclamation point with a two-run home run in the sixth.

In addition to Lamkin, the late-inning duo of Josh Stewart and Evan Aschenbeck each spun a pair of shutout innings to slam the door.

Though tonight marks the end of the road for Florida, it was a remarkable. On Selection Monday, there was serious doubt that the Gators would even make the tournament but they made the most of their opportunity and then some. Runs to Omaha have become the norm under head coach Kevin O’Sullivan, and I have little doubt his crew will be squarely in the mix again next season.

Tennessee 7, Florida State 2, Florida State eliminated

Tennessee got all of the offense it needed with three runs in the top of the first inning en route to a comfortable win over Florida State to punch its ticket to the CWS Finals. Just as it’s done all season, the top-half of the Volunteers’ lineup supplied all of the damage. Junior slugger Blake Burke led the charge, going 3-for-5 with a home run and two RBIs, while Christian Moore—who is been unconscious in Omaha—went 2-for-4 with an RBI triple.

On top of its impressive offensive effort, Tennessee also got excellent pitching from each of its three arms. After Zander Sechrist set the tone with a quality start in which he allowed two runs across 6.1 innings, Kirby Connell (1.2 IP) and Nate Snead fired 2.2 shutout innings to slam the door. Although Florida State’s season came to an end, it is one that will not soon be forgotten in Tallahassee. After failing to make the ACC Tournament last season, this season felt like what will become the new norm for the Seminoles under head coach Link Jarrett.

Florida 15, Kentucky 4, Kentucky eliminated

It was a dominant showing this morning for Florida, who trounced Kentucky 15-4 to advance to the CWS semifinals. After the Wildcats drew first blood on a Nick Lopez RBI single in the top of the first, the Gators scored seven runs in the bottom half of the inning—headlined by a Brody Donay grand slam—and never looked back.

It was a balanced, well-rounded effort offensively for the Gators who saw seven different players drive in at least one run. In the bottom of the fifth, Donay walloped his second home run of the day while Jac Caglianone in the sixth hit his Florida program-record 75th career home run.

While its offense was the story, Florida also got meaningful relief innings from freshmen Jake Clemente and Alex Philpott who both spun a pair of shutout frames to slam the door.

Tuesday, June 18 game

Florida State 9, North Carolina 5, North Carolina eliminated

Florida State’s relentless offense proved to be a little too much for North Carolina today, as they downed the Tar Heels 9-5 to end their season. The Seminoles took a 3-1 lead into the fifth thanks to a Drew Faurot RBI single and a pair of manufactured runs, but broke the game open with a four run-scoring singles.

North Carolina responded with four runs of its own, headlined by a Vance Honeycutt three-run home run home run, but that was all it would get for the remainder of the game. The ‘Noles got a pair of key insurance runs in the top of the ninth courtesy of back-to-back home runs by Jaxson West and Max Williams, while Connor Hults was sensational in relief and slammed the door with 4.1 shutout innings.

With today’s win, Florida State advances to the semifinals where it will need to beat Tennessee twice.

Monday, June 17 games

Texas A&M 5, Kentucky 1

After Ryan Prager and Mason Moore went punch-for-punch for five innings, Texas A&M broke the scoreless tie in emphatic fashion with five runs in the top of the sixth inning. Hayden Schott and Kaeden Kent both came through with two-run singles, while Ali Camarillo hit an RBI double.

Circling back to Prager, he more than rose to the occasion under the brightest lights in college baseball. The junior lefthander allowed just two hits with four strikeouts across 6.2 shutout innings. Righthander Josh Stewart followed in relief and slammed the door with 2.1 strong innings. Texas A&M moves within one win of the CWS Finals, while Kentucky takes on Florida tomorrow night.

Florida 5, NC State 4, NC State eliminated

Behind eight strong innings from its bullpen, Florida hung on to beat a resilient NC State squad 5-4 to keep its season alive. The Wolfpack got the scoring started in the bottom of the first with a Brandon Butterworth RBI single, but Florida struck back with four runs of its own in the top of the second. Cade Kurland came through with a sac-fly before Jac Caglianone hit a 116 MPH missile out to right field for a three-run home run.

Alec Makarewicz hit a two-run home run to cut Florida’s lead to just one run, but Tyler Shelnut’s solo home run in the fifth gave the Gators all the offense they would need. Cade Fisher was first out of the bullpen and allowed three runs across four gritty innings, but the duo of Jake Clemente (1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 0 K) and Brandon Neely (3 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 6 K) combined to fire four-straight shutout innings to slam the door.

Sunday, June 16 games

Tennessee 6, North Carolina 1

Tennessee followed up its thrilling, come-from-behind victory on Friday night with a far less stressful win tonight over a talented North Carolina squad. The Volunteers were unable to muster much offense through the first three innings, but broke through in the fourth thanks to a three-run blast off the bat of Kavares Tears.

They added a run in both the fifth and sixth innings before Tears provided the exclamation point with an RBI double in the eighth inning. It was a vintage Drew Beam start, and it could not have come at a better time or in a bigger spot. The prized righthander allowed one run with seven strikeouts across five innings pitched, while the bullpen duo of Kirby Connell (2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K) and Nate Snead (2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 0 K) followed with four-straight shutout innings to slam the door.

Tennessee is one win away from advancing to the CWS Finals, while North Carolina and Florida State square off on Tuesday in an elimination game.

Florida State 7, Virginia 3, Virginia eliminated

Florida State took care of business today against Virginia to keep its season alive. After four thrilling games to open up the CWS, this was the lone result that was never really in doubt. Virginia’s Jay Woolfolk and FSU’s Carson Dorsey traded scoreless frames through the first two innings, but in the bottom of the third the ‘Noles got on the board thanks to a bases-loaded walk to James Tibbs III.

Jaime Ferrer blasted a solo home run in the fourth inning before Florida State broke the game open with four runs in the fifth thanks to a Marco Dinges RBI single and a Jaime Ferrer three-run home run, his second of the game.

On the mound, Carson Dorsey spun a solid start in which he allowed three runs with seven strikeouts in as many innings pitched. Veteran southpaw Brennen Oxford followed with two shutout innings to slam the door.

Saturday, June 15 games

Kentucky 5, NC State 4 (10 innings)

After two walk-offs yesterday, Kentucky this afternoon made it three-straight as it picked up its first walk-off win of the season. It was a clean, back-and-forth affair that saw the Wildcats leading 3-1 heading into the seventh inning after Nolan McCarthy hit a missile out to left field for a two-run home run.

Trey Pooser was cruising through 6.2 innings, but Alec Makarewicz evened the score with a no-doubt, two-run home run out to deep to right-centerfield. NC State proceeded to take a 4-3 lead in the top of the ninth on a wild pitch, but veteran slugger Ryan Nicholson led off the bottom half of the inning with a game-tying, opposite field home run.

In the 10th inning, Kentucky got big-time contributions from two more experienced players in righthander Johnny Hummel and third baseman Mitchell Daly. Hummel came through with a key shut down inning in the top half, while with two outs in the bottom half Daly crushed a walk-off home run out to left field.

Kentucky awaits the winner of Texas A&M and Florida, while NC State will take on the loser.

Texas A&M 3, Florida 2

It wasn’t a walk-off, but the end of Texas A&M-Florida was immensely exciting.

Aggies star Jace LaViolette robbed Cade Kurland of a go-ahead home run in the ninth inning to preserve Texas A&M’s win in a nightcap that was delayed four hours due to inclement weather.

Texas A&M scored three early runs off Florida starter Liam Peterson, then held on even as Florida mounted a rally late. The Gators loaded the bases against Aggies relief ace Evan Aschenbeck in the eighth inning but could not scratch across the tying run.

The Aggies now have ace Ryan Prager ready to go Monday night.

Friday, June 14 games

North Carolina 3, Virginia 2

Golf fans watching the U.S. Open held in North Carolina this weekend will likely at some point hear a callback to this famed “expect anything different?” Dan Hicks/Tiger Woods call from the 2008 U.S. Open.

At this point, when it comes to Vance Honeycutt, we could the say the same.

Expect anything different?

The North Carolina star again delivered in a clutch moment, roping a walk-off single to beat Virginia 3-2 in the opening game of the College World Series.

Honeycutt also hit a walk-off homer in a super regional win over West Virginia. The win marked the Tar Heels’ fourth consecutive one-run win. Virginia, meanwhile, lost its fifth consecutive College World Series game dating back to 2021.

Virginia led 2-1 after six innings, but North Carolina relief ace Dalton Pence threw 3.1 scoreless innings to keep the Tar Heels in it. The Cavaliers received a strong start from Evan Blanco in a losing effort. The lefty went 6.2 innings and allowed two runs on seven hits while striking out four.

We’ll leave you with this thread on Honeycutt, who has been a popular figure at Baseball America this week.

Tennessee 12, Florida State 11

Following a polished game to start the day, the night cap between Florida State and Tennessee was anything but. It was a tale of two games for the Volunteers, who—thanks to a plethora of free bases and a couple of big swings from Jaime Ferrer—trailed 9-4 heading into the fifth inning with FSU ace Jamie Arnold still on the mound.

While Tennessee tried its best to chip away, it still trailed 11-8 heading into the bottom of the ninth inning. The Volunteers began the inning in emphatic fashion and cut the Seminoles’ lead to 11-9 after a Kavares Tears triple and a Dean Curley sac-fly, but with the bases empty and one out it still felt like FSU was in control. However three hitters later, Christian Moore—who earlier in the game became just the second player in CWS history to hit for the cycle—laced his second double of the game to put runners on second and third with two outs.

After an incredibly borderline “no swing” call on a Blake Burke check swing, the hulking first baseman lined a game-tying, two-run single into centerfield. The Tennessee hit parade continued, as after a Billy Amick single Dylan Dreiling stayed closed on a tough left-on-left breaking ball and lifted a walk-off, RBI single into left-centerfield to lift the Volunteers to their first ninth inning comeback win of the season.

Premier pitching was at a premium this evening, but major kudos to Nate Snead who turned in 2.1 scoreless innings in relief. This is a gut-wrenching loss for Florida State, who now faces the tough task of coming out of the loser’s bracket.
