Mississippi State defeats Texas in pitchers' duel

Mississippi State strikes out 21, sets CWS record in win over Texas

Mississippi State held on 2-1 to defeat Texas in the final game of the 2021 College World Series opening weekend. MSU's Will Bednar dazzled with 15 strikeouts in 6+ innings, in a game that saw the most combined strikeouts in CWS history (33). 

Bednar allowed just one hit and walked one, while falling two strikeouts short of the CWS nine-inning record. 

MSU got both of its runs in the fourth inning via a Scotty Dubrule sac fly and a Brad Cumbest RBI triple that just bent fair down the right field line.

Texas cut the deficit to one in the bottom of the ninth inning with a Mike Antico homer, and later put the tying and winning runs on base. But star closer Landon Sims stranded them there to secure the three-inning save.

Mississippi State advances to the winners' bracket to face Virginia on Tuesday. Texas will face Tennessee in Tuesday's elimination game. Virginia shut out Tennessee 6-0 in Sunday afternoon's matchup. Below is the updated CWS schedule for Monday and Tuesday:

Mississippi State 3 outs away from win

We enter the ninth inning with Mississippi State still up 2-0 on No. 2 overall seed Texas. Will Bednar departed after 6+ innings with 15 strikeouts, and closer Landon Sims has followed with two scoreless innings and five more strikeouts.

The two teams have combined for a staggering 31 strikeouts tonight, which ties the College World Series record previously set in 1962 by Santa Clara and Michigan.

12:50 am, June 21, 2021

Bednar up to 15 Ks after six innings

Mississippi State's Will Bednar has struck out 15 Longhorns after a 1-2-3 sixth inning. He's now surpassed both the Mississippi State CWS strikeout record (10) and his own personal career-high (13).

His streak of six straight strikeouts was snapped by an inning-ending flyout to right field. He also had a streak of seven straight early in the game. Bednar's at 99 pitches and has allowed just one hit, so we likely haven't seen the last of him.

For those wondering, the CWS single-game record for strikeouts is 20, set by Ohio State's Steve Arlin in 1965. Arlin went a CWS-record 15 innings in that game.

12:05 am, June 21, 2021

Mississippi State takes the lead on sac fly

Will Bednar's dealing has paid off – eight strikeouts through three innings – as third baseman Kamren James walked to start off the fourth inning, advanced to third on Luke Hancock's single, then scored on a sacrifice fly from Scotty Dubrule.

Then, Brad Cumbest tripled to knock in Hancock, putting Mississippi State ahead 2-0, as Texas has yet to record a hit.

11:55 pm, June 20, 2021

Bednar strikes out the side (again)

Mississippi State's Will Bednar struck out the side – again – after doing the same in the second inning. While Bednar did hit a batter in the third inning, he still struck out Trey Faltine in five pitches, Silas Ardoin in five and Mike Antico in four. Bednar has eight strikeouts in three innings – six swinging and two looking.

11:41 pm, June 20, 2021

Mississippi State's Will Bednar strikes out five through two

Through two innings, Mississippi State starter Will Bednar has struck out five of the six batters he's faced, including all three in the second inning.

10:57 pm, June 20, 2021

Virginia defeats No. 3 seed Tennessee 6-0

Thanks to six innings of five-hit, scoreless ball from starter Andrew Abbott and timely hitting from catcher Logan Michaels, who went 3-for-4 with two RBI and three runs, including a solo home run in the third as well as an insurance run in the ninth, Virginia defeated No. 3 seed Tennessee 6-0 on Day 2 of the College World Series.

After Michaels' home run, which came on Father's Day with his father in attendance, started the scoring, Virginia scored four runs in the seventh to break the game open. The top two batters in the Cavaliers' lineup – third baseman Zack Gelof and second baseman Max Cotier – went a combined 5-for-9 with one run and two RBI.

Cotier added Virginia's sixth and final run in the top of the ninth when he grounded into a double play with the bases loaded, scoring Michaels.

7:59 pm, June 20, 2021

Michaels delivers again

After hitting his first home run of the season in the third inning to put Virginia ahead of No. 3 seed Tennessee 1-0, Cavaliers catcher Logan Michaels drove in another run with an RBI single in the top of the seventh, scoring Alex Tappen from second.

Centerfielder Chris Newell followed Michael's RBI single with an RBI single of his own, putting Virginia ahead 3-0 and forcing Tennessee to make a pitching change.

After Sean Hunley replaced Tennessee starter Chad Dallas, Newell stole second and then scored on Zack Gelof's RBI single. Gelof then stole second and he, too, scored on an RBI single from Max Cotier, putting Virginia ahead 5-0.

7:11 pm, June 20, 2021

Virginia's Abbott strikes out the side

After striking out the side in the bottom of the fourth inning, Virginia starter Andrew Abbott is up to eight strikeouts on the game. He needed just 14 pitches to get three strikeouts in the fourth – 11 of which were strikes.

6:48 pm, June 20, 2021

Virginia's Michaels starts scoring with a HR

After a fairly quiet first two innings that saw three singles compared to six strikeouts, Virginia catcher Logan Michaels started the scoring with a home run to left field on a 2-1 count, putting the 'Hoos ahead early over No. 3 seed Tennessee.

Logan arrived in Omaha batting .242 this season without a single home run this season, so his third-inning homer came at a critical time.

6:43 pm, June 20, 2021

Pitching reigns supreme early

Through the first two innings of Tennessee and Virginia's College World Series opener, six of the first 12 outs were strikeouts, with Virginia's Andrew Abbott striking out four of the first nine batters he faced and Tennessee's Chad Dallas striking out two of the first seven. The teams have combined for just three hits through two innings – all singles.

Vanderbilt wins 12-inning marathon vs. Arizona

Vanderbilt started its national title defense with a thrilling 7-6 walk-off win in 12 innings over Arizona in the nightcap of 2021 College World Series opening day.

After 2.5 scoreless extra inning frames — despite chances on both sides — Vandy's Jayson Gonzalez delivered the game-winning single past the diving shortstop with the bases loaded and Arizona's infield pulled in. Saturday night's game was the first extra inning affair in College World Series play since 2014.

The first nine innings saw plenty of back-and-forth action. Down to its final two outs and down 6-5, Arizona managed to tie it up on a Donta Williams sac fly. That erased the Vanderbilt lead Carter Young helped establish with a go-ahead two-run home run in a three-run seventh inning rally.

Vanderbilt's All-American pitcher Kumar Rocker, the 2019 CWS Most Outstanding Player, lasted 5.2 innings and gave up five runs (three earned) with seven strikeouts. Arizona tagged Rocker for three runs on four hits in the first inning. Rocker settled down before giving up a deep home run to Ryan Holgate on his 100th and final pitch.

Gonzalez finished with three hits on the night, which also included a two-run home run in the fourth inning.

In Saturday's first game, North Carolina State continued its magical run with a 10-4 win over Stanford, led by Jonny Butler's five RBIs. Stanford will now face Pac-12 rival Arizona in the first elimination game of the tournament Monday at 1 p.m. ET. NC State and Vanderbilt will follow at 6 p.m. ET in the winners' bracket.

Arizona escapes bases loaded jam to keep game going

Vanderbilt loaded the bases with one out in the bottom of the 11th, looking primed to send everyone home. But Arizona's Vince Vannelle came in and struck out Dominic Keegan and induced a groundout from pinch hitter Spencer Brown to keep the game tied heading into the 12th inning. Heck of a job by the freshman to get out of the jam.

The Wildcats begin the top of the 12th inning with the top of their order: Donta Williams, Jacob Berry and Branden Boissiere.

2:02 am, June 20, 2021

Arizona ties it up in top of the ninth

Leadoff hitter Donta Williams comes through for Arizona, delivering a sac fly to center field with one out in the top of the ninth to score the game-tying run off Vanderbilt's Luke Murphy. 

Vanderbilt failed to score in the bottom of the ninth, meaning we head to extra innings for the first time in the College World Series since 2014.

1:48 am, June 20, 2021

Young's clutch HR gives Vanderbilt the lead

The defending champs have broken through for another lead change in the seventh inning. Freshman Enrique Bradfield Jr. cut the deficit to one with an RBI single and then Carter Young came through with the go-ahead two-run homer to knock out Arizona starter Chase Silseth.

Vanderbilt is now six outs away from its third straight CWS win.

1:12 am, June 20, 2021

Arizona regains lead on Holgate bomb 💣

Arizona is back on top 5-3 after its turn in the sixth inning. Ryan Holgate tagged Kumar Rocker for a deep homer into the right field stands. It came on Rocker's 100th and final pitch of the day.

Rocker's final line: 5.2 innings, five runs, three earned runs, seven strikeouts, no walks, one HBP. He's in line for the first loss of his NCAA tournament career.

1:01 am, June 20, 2021

END 5: Arizona 3, Vanderbilt 3

After five frames, we're all even. Vanderbilt's Jayson Gonzalez connected on a 2-0 pitch in the bottom of the fourth for a game-tying two-run home run to right-center.

Kumar Rocker has settled in after a rocky first inning but he's up over 90 pitches working in the sixth inning. Arizona hasn't recorded a hit since its three-run first inning.

12:48 am, June 20, 2021

Watch: Exclusive interview with Al Leiter

Nineteen-year MLB veteran and three-time World Series champion Al Leiter is in attendance for Vanderbilt's College World Series opener against Arizona. His son Jack Leiter, a first-team All-American and likely top 10 MLB draft pick, will likely start the Commodores' second game on Monday.

NCAA.com's Michella Chester spoke to Al in a brief, exclusive interview prior to Saturday's first pitch. Al reflected on Jack's baseball upbringing and let us in on how he knows Jack is on the top of his game. Watch the interview below.

11:47 pm, June 19, 2021

Rocker strikes out the side in the second

After a challenging first inning that saw Arizona score three runs, including two thanks to back-to-back doubles, Vanderbilt starter Kumar Rocker settled in and struck out the side in the second inning, needing just 13 pitches – nine  of which were strikes. Rocker entered the game with 155 strikeouts in 106 innings and he has four through the first two innings tonight, which allowed him to reach 300 strikeouts for his career.

11:16 pm, June 19, 2021

Arizona strikes early against Vandy

No. 5 seed Arizona wasted no time to take the lead against No. 4 seed Vanderbilt as back-to-back doubles from designated hitter Jacob Berry and first baseman Branden Boissiere put the Wildcats ahead 2-0 in the top of the first with Vanderbilt ace Kumar Rocker on the mound. Vanderbilt got off to a rough start as Arizona lead-off batter Donta Williams reached base on an error by Vandy first baseman Dominic Keegan.

While Rocker got a pop out after a mound visit, Arizona's Daniel Susac singled to score Boissiere, putting Arizona up 3-0.

11:04 pm, June 19, 2021

Vanderbilt-Arizona is underway

The opening game of the College World Series was an upset that saw 14 total runs scored, including three separate half-innings in which a team scored at least three runs. Can the nightcap produce similar drama?

It has the teams and individual talent to do so, and it's now underway on ESPN as No. 4 seed Vanderbilt and No. 5 seed Arizona square off, with Vanderbilt's Kumar Rocker (13-3) and Arizona's Chase Silseth (8-1) each getting the start.

Following along with the live stats here.

NC State defeats No. 9 seed Stanford in CWS opener

NC State beats Stanford 10-4 in the opening round of the College World Series

Left fielder Jonny Butler had a huge game offensively, going 3-for-4 with five RBI and two runs, including a two-run home run in the first inning and an RBI single in the ninth as part of the Wolfpack's offensive outburst in the final frame. NC State finished with 12 hits and six walks, forcing Stanford to use five pitchers – four of whom recorded four outs or fewer.

While NC State starter Reid Johnston was pulled in the seventh inning after allowing the first four batters to record a hit, including a two-run home run, he had pitched six innings of two-hit ball.

Stanford's Robinson homers to cut deficit to 6-4

Running out of time to cut into NC State's 6-1 lead, Stanford right fielder Christian Robinson got two runs back on a home run to right field in the top of the seventh, scoring Kody Huff, who had started the rally with a single.

Stanford's next two batters both singled, as the first four Cardinal batters each recorded a hit without the Wolfpack recording a single out, forcing NC State to replace starter Reid Johnston with reliever Evan Justice.

Through the first six innings, Johnston had only allowed two hits and one run.

Justice nearly got out of the inning with Stanford unscathed after he struck out two of the first three batters he faced, but with the bases loaded, Tim Tawa reached base on an error, scoring Nick Brueser, which cut NC State's lead to 6-4.

7:25 pm, June 19, 2021

Stanford scores first run on Tawa's homer

After a fielding error that led to NC State scoring two runs in the top of the fourth inning, Tim Tawa got one run back by homering to left field on a 1-2 count, cutting Stanford's deficit to 6-1. It was Stanford's first hit of the game, as the Cardinal had gone three up, three down in each of the first two innings.

7:08 pm, June 19, 2021

Wolfpack homer again

NC State's bats are more than alive as the Wolfpack has now scored in three of the first four innings of the CWS opener against No. 9 seed Stanford. To start the batting in the top of the fourth, right fielder Devonte Brown homered to right field on a 1-0 count to put NC State ahead 4-0.

6:41 pm, June 19, 2021

NC State adds another run on McDonough's single

An error by Stanford catcher Kody Huff came back to bite the Cardinal as Vojtech Mensik reached first base and then advanced to second on a throwing error after Mensik struck out, which should've been the second out of the inning.

After J.T. Jarrett struck out, lead-off batter Austin Murr walked, setting up Tyler McDonough's single to right field, which scored Mensik and put NC State up 3-0 in the top of the second.

Tennessee is one win away from the College World Series. Several mental mistakes by LSU in the sixth inning allowed Tennessee to score three, take the lead and seal the victory, 4-2

LSU made one error in the game but it was two fielder's choices that allowed runners to reach base when they should not have.

Arkansas defeats NC State 21-2 in game 1 of the DI baseball Super Regionals

Game 1 of the Fayetteville Super Regional was all Arkansas. The Razorbacks chalked up an insurmountable 21-run offensive performance to defeat NC State 21-2.

The Arkansas Razorbacks scored in clusters: Three in the second, four in the third, three in the fifth, six in the sixth and five in the eighth.

Cullen Smith's grand slam in the third inning electrified the crowed in Fayetteville and might as well have closed the door on NC State's hopeful comeback. The grand salami made it 7-1 Arkansas.

NC State called on three different pitchers in the sixth inning in attempt to soften the mounting deficit. Within that frame, six runs scored, three of which were walked home.

Arkansas' pitching did not waiver. Starter Patrick Wicklander threw six innings of one run ball. He allowed six hits and two walks and notched six strikeouts.

  • Not only did Tennessee walk it off, but Arizona State ended its game vs. Fairfield in style with a walk-off single by Sean McLain.
  • Before Wright State lost to Tennessee in dramatic fashion, Tyler Black homered twice, with one leaving the park after bouncing off the glove of Tennessee right fielder Jordan Beck.
  • USF upset No. 15 Florida in Gainesville. This is USF's first tournament win over Florida since 1982. The Bulls are now two wins away from their first-ever regional tournament win.

No. 3 Tennessee walks it off❗️

One stroke of the bat was all it took for No. 3 Tennessee to advance to the winner's bracket in the Knoxville Regional, beating Wright State 9-8. That one stroke ended up being a walk-off grand slam. 

It sure looked like the Volunteers would drop Game 1 against Wright State. The Raiders led 8-5 in the bottom of the ninth inning.

But after two singles and a walk, Drew Gilbert blasted the walk-off grand slam to beat Wright State and shutter the Raiders' upset threat. Four Volunteers hit home runs on Friday night, but none more important that Gilbert's. Watch the granny and entire celebration below.

10:41 pm, June 4, 2021

Stanford, UC Santa Barbara advance behind strong starting pitching

Alex Williams didn't need much run support. Stanford beat North Dakota State 9-1 behind three home runs, but it was William's performance on the mound that set the tone for the Cardinal. His seven-inning, one-run outing gave the Cardinal the foundation they needed to begin the regionals round on top. Through 104 pitches (66 strikes), Williams struck out nine, walked three and allowed just one Bison to cross home on three hits.

Over in the Tucson Regional, UC Santa Barabara's Rodney Boone dealt his own dime. Through 7.1 innings, Boone allowed four runs (three earned) on seven hits, two walks and 11 strikeouts. The Gauchos tacked on five runs in the ninth to enlarge the margin of victory over Oklahoma State, 14-4.

UCSB's Marcos Castanon was a triple shy of hitting for the cycle in the win.

USF upsets No. 15 Florida, 5-3
