Sunday Recap

A late surge from Notre Dame sent the No. 1 national seed packing.

Tennessee was up 3-1 entering the seventh inning, with Chase Burns stymying the Fighting Irish offense to that point. David LaManna and Jack Brannigan proceeded to turn the game on its head with back-to-back home runs.

In the eighth, the Volunteers once again paid for failing to put Notre Dame away with two outs. A double by Carter Putz and a single by Jack Zyska plated three more runs to add to the Fighting Irish's advantage.

Jack Findlay pitched the final 4.2 innings for Notre Dame. The left-hander held one of Division I's best offenses to one hit as Tennessee struggled to muster anything at the plate for the second half of the contest.

As the game ended, the faces in the Volunteers dugout said it all with such an impressive season coming to a disappointing end.

Virginia Tech will have to wait at least another year to make its maiden voyage to the College World Series. Oklahoma eliminated the fourth-seeded Hokies.

A pair of solo home runs by Peyton Graham and Tanner Tredaway put the Sooners up 2-0 after the first inning, but Carson DeMartini answered back with a two-run homer for Virginia Tech in the third.

Oklahoma quickly regained the momentum with a three-run fourth inning. Tredaway set the tone with his second round-tripper.

That was the only additional support Cade Horton needed. DeMartini's dinger aside, the redshirt freshman was dominant on the mound. He struck out eight batters over six innings of work.

Kendall Pettis was another standout performer. He added to the Sooners' offensive onslaught with a solo home run in the sixth to make it an 8-2 game. His best play, however, came on the field, as he leaped over the bullpen wall to make a catch in foul territory.

This is Oklahoma's first College World Series appearance since 2010.

Arkansas and North Carolina combined for a dramatic affair that resulted in the ouster of another national seed.

With the score tied at two runs apiece in the ninth, Patrick Alvarez hit a single to center field to plate Tomas Frick and put the Tar Heels up 3-2.

That was the extent of the damage for the Razorbacks, who immediately applied pressure when it was their turn to bat. Singles by Jalen Battles and Peyton Stovall and a walk to Kendall Diggs loaded the bases with nobody out.

Battles scored on a fielder's choice to tie the game, and Brady Slavens walked it off with an RBI single.

Arkansas has become a mainstay in the CWS, with the program making a third appearance in the last four installments.

Oregon State has experienced similar success, and thanks to a 4-3 win over Auburn on Sunday, it kept its College World Series hopes alive.

The Beavers have made seven CWS appearances in their history and won three national championships with the most recent coming in 2018.

A 4-3 win against the Tigers powered by home runs from Jacob Melton and Travis Bazzana allowed the Beavers to force a decisive Game 3 for the spot in the College World Series on Monday.
