NCAA Super Regionals, Florida State Vs. Stanford, Game 2 Recap: Noles Punch Ticket To Omaha For CWS

The Florida State Seminoles advanced to the 2012 College World Series for the 21st time in program history after crushing the Stanford Cardinal by a final score of 18-7. In their two games of the Tallahassee Regional, Florida State scored a combined 35 runs.

They defeated Stanford on Saturday night in the first game of the Super Regional by a final score of 17-1.

The Cardinal were absolutely anemic offensively as they'd gone over ten innings without scoring until bottom of the third in Game 2 when they finally were able to put a run on the board. They'd scored just three runs in the first 15 innings of the Tallahassee Super Regional.

Stanford had plenty of chances at the plate as they had 18 hits in the ball game and were playing with the bases loaded on a number of occasions, but they couldn't come away with that key hit as the Seminole defense shut them down at every turn.

Gage Smith gets credited with the win on the mound for Florida State while leadoff hitter Sherman Johnson led the Seminoles on offense with five RBI's in the game.
