The NCAA baseball roundup …
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. ó The No. 2 overall pick in this weekís major league draft looked nothing like a two-time ACC pitcher of the year.
It didnít matter because Danny Hultzen got plenty of help from his Virginia teammates.
Hultzen and Cody Winiarski combined on a four-hitter and Jared King hit a three-run home run to break open a close game Saturday, helping the top-seeded Cavaliers stretch their winning streak to eight games with a 6-0 victory against UC Irvine in the opener at the Charlottesville Super Regional.
South Carolina 5, UConn 1
COLUMBIA, S.C.ó Michael Roth pitched into the ninth, allowing six hits, and Scott Wingo had two RBIs as South Carolina won Game 1 against UConn.
The defending national champion Gamecocks (49-14) are a win away from a return trip to the College World Series.
Roth (13-3) came in second in the country with a 1.10 ERA and lived up to that against the Huskies (45-18-1). He got stronger as the game progressed, notching his first two strikeouts of the game on UConn stars George Springer and Mike Nemeth in the eighth inning. Roth finally left with one out in the ninth to a standing ovation from the sellout crowd of 8,242 at Carolina Stadium.
Wingo tied the game at 1-all in the third with an RBI single, then put the Gamecocks (49-14) up 3-1 with a run-scoring hit off Connecticut ace Matt Barnes
Texas 5, Arizona State 1
AUSTIN, Texas ó Jordan Etier hit a three-run homer in the top of the ninth and Texas tied the Super Regional at a game apiece.
Cole Green (8-3) allowed one run on six hits in five innings for Texas (48-17). Corey Knebel, who was recently named National Freshman Pitcher of the year, got his 18th save of the season.
Texas A&M 6, Florida State 2
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. ó Brandon Wood hit a two-run single to highlight a four-run seventh inning and Texas A&M beat Florida State ace Sean Gilmartin and the Seminoles 6-2 in Game 1.
Miss. State 4, Florida 3
GAINESVILLE, Fla. ó Nick Vickerson hammered the first pitch he saw over the fence in left-center field for a two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth inning.
