Miami fans may have been biting their nails when the Canes allowed Long Beach State to tie up the game in the eighth inning.

With two outs and a runner on third, Randy Batista, who was 0-for-10 on Saturday and Sunday, came to the plate.

Miami will host Oxford Regional Champion Boston College next for a trip to Omaha.
