Faedo was masterful striking out 11 batters — the most ever by a Florida pitcher in a College World Series game

Florida took that route Sunday night against TCU in the first round of the College World Series as Alex Faedo and Michael Byrne combined for a dominant 3-0 five-hit shutout. This shutout was Florida's second in its 36 all-time CWS games and first in Omaha since a 5-0 win over Florida State 26 years ago. Florida's last three games in Omaha were one-run losses, two last season and another in the semifinal round in 2015. He pitched two scoreless innings in relief and picked up his first career save against Wake Forest in the super regional, not long after the Detroit Tigers selected him with the 18th overall pick in the Major League Baseball draft. Catcher Mike Rivera threw out Cam Warner twice, picking him off at first in the second inning and when he tried to take second on a ball in the dirt in the fourth.

Louisville plays Tuesday against the victor of Sunday night's Florida-TCU game, which wasn't over at press time (go to tampabay.com/sports for result). Janczak's errant pickoff throw moved him up and two productive outs generated a run - Dalton Guthrie's 3-1 grounder and JJ Schwarz's roller to shortstop with the infield back.

UF was 6-for-18 with a runner on base and produced three two-out hits to go with three more to start innings.

So how did O'Sullivan get Florida to the College World Series for the third consecutive year and the sixth time in the last eight seasons? This was the first time they've met.

-Faedo: The hard-throwing right-hander has been Florida's No. 1 starter all year and one of the best in the Southeastern Conference.

Florida scored all its runs in the first five innings. The Tigers scored their first run when Antoine Duplantis came around from first on a third-strike wild pitch, tied it in the eighth when the Seminoles committed three errors on the same play, then got the go-ahead single. Faedo picked off Nolan Brown at first to end the fourth.

TCU didn't have another batter reach base until Connor Wanhanen bunted for a hit to open the eighth against Byrne.

Janczak lost for the second time in three career CWS starts. The sophomore entered the game having allowed a total of three runs over four starts covering 22 1/3 innings since he missed a month because of shoulder soreness. Other than pitching three innings in his return from injury, Sunday marked his shortest outing of the season.
