UC Santa Barbara 4, Louisville 2

A three-inning spurt fueled UC Santa Barbara past host Louisville in the first game of college baseball's busy schedule. 

Four different Gauchos drove in all four of Santa Barbara's runs from the third to fifth innings, which proved to be enough for Shane Bieber and Kyle Nelson on the hill. 

Bieber went seven innings and allowed two runs while striking out seven before Nelson slammed the door shut with two no-hit innings. 

Oklahoma State 5, South Carolina 1

Like UC Santa Barbara, Oklahoma State came into the home of South Carolina and took it down thanks to a strong pitching effort.

Thomas Hatch and Trey Cobb combined to allow one run on six hits while striking out six. 

Collin Theroux provided the big fly, which was all Oklahoma State needed, launching a three-run home run in the top of the ninth inning to give the Cowboys a comfortable cushion to work with. 

Boston College 5, Miami 3

Boston College was the third visitor to win on Saturday, as it forced a decisive Game 3 in its Super Regionals matchup with Miami. The Eagles capitalized on a four-run fourth inning that contained four hits and a pair of Hurricanes fielding errors. 

It took Boston College longer than expected to close out its game, as things were delayed for almost three hours due to lightning, as NCAA Baseball showed:

Mitch Bigras went 2-for-4 with a pair of RBI to pace Boston College's offense, and Donovan Casey bombed a solo home run to lead off that big fourth inning. 

Texas Tech 3, East Carolina 1

With the bases loaded in the top of the 13th inning, Eric Gutierrez singled home two runs to lift Texas Tech to a 3-1 win over East Carolina and end a marathon five-hour game.

It was the first runs scored since East Carolina plated a run in the bottom of the sixth inning to tie the game at one apiece. 

The win ensures a decisive Game 3 as Texas Tech was facing elimination; it now will have plenty of momentum heading into Sunday. 

Florida State 3, Florida 0

It was the Drew Carlton show for Florida State on Saturday night against in-state rivals Florida. 

Carlton threw a complete-game shutout in which he allowed just two hits while striking out five. 

Florida State plated its first run thanks to a bases-loaded walk in the fourth inning, which was answered by a pair of RBI from Taylor Walls and John Sansone in the fifth. 

Thanks to Carlton's heroics, Florida State forced a decisive Game 3 as it looks to shock the Gainesville crowd and punch its ticket to the College World Series.

Arizona 6, Mississippi State 5

Arizona came back from a 4-0 deficit to defeat Mississippi State in extra innings after Cesar Salazar singled home the game-winning run in the 11th. 

Ryan Aguilar got Arizona's comeback going in the bottom of the eighth down four with a three-run home run to make it a one-run game before an Alfonso Rivas single tied things up in the ninth. 

The Wildcats became the first team to advance to the College World Series with the win.

Texas A&M 7, TCU 1

Four Aggies hit home runs and Kyle Simonds struck out six as Texas A&M has forced a Game 3 with a six-run victory over the Horned Frogs.

Texas A&M scored three runs in the first inning, starting with a J.B. Moss leadoff homer on the second pitch of the game.

Catcher Michael Barash recorded two hits and TCU's bats were quiet all night. The first two games have been blowouts, but with seasons on the line, it should be different for Game 3.

Coastal Carolina 11, LSU 8

Three players hit homers for Coastal Carolina as the Chanticleers took Game 1 of their series with LSU despite allowing three runs in the ninth inning.

CCU trailed 4-2 heading into the sixth before the Chanticleers scored four runs in the top of the frame and three more in the top of the seventh to extend their lead.
