(AP) – To Florida State’s Mike McGee, pitching is hard work and hitting home runs is fun. He mixed business and pleasure Monday, leading the Seminoles to an 8-5 victory over Florida in a College World Series elimination game.
McGee hit a tie-breaking three-run homer in the third inning, laid down a squeeze bunt in the fourth and moved in from left field to pick up the save after Florida made things interesting in the ninth. “Pitching, it’s great to end the game and get the save. I like to be in control,” McGee said. “But hitting the home run is the best feeling there is.”
The Seminoles (48-19) will play TCU in an elimination game Wednesday night. The Horned Frogs lost 6-3 to UCLA on Monday.
