Logan Shore, a righthander from Coon Rapids, got his second win of the College World Series, benefiting when Florida scored four runs in the third inning and five in the sixth on the way to a 10-5 win over Virginia on Friday in Omaha.
Florida's victory forces a second Bracket 1 final at the College World Series in Omaha. The Gators (52-17) and Cavaliers (41-23) will play again Saturday, with the winner going to the best-of-three finals starting Monday against defending champion Vanderbilt or TCU, who were playing later Friday.
The Gators scored in double digits for the fifth time in six games. They are the first team since South Carolina in 2002 to score 10 or more runs in three CWS games.
Shore (11-6) went 6⅓ innings, allowing four runs and eight hits.
"At the start of the SEC tournament, everyone just started hitting, especially when I'm on the mound," Shore said. "I gave up a run in the first there, and I knew we were going to bounce back."
