Numbers of the night

The College World Series is just full of numbers. For instance, roughly 2.5 percent of Division I team (8 of 301) make it to TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha, Nebraska, and get the chance to win the national championship. 

We take a look at some of the key stats and figures to come from of Day 1 at the College World Series. 


Florida 15, Miami 3


The Gators score 11 runs in the fourth inning to tie the CWS record for most runs in one inning. 
Florida is no stranger to big run totals this postseason, having scored 19 runs in its tournament-opening shutout win against Florida A&M.
Miami's Ricky Eusebio was hit by a pitch in two of his first three at bats, bringing his season total to 21.
Miami has won the title four times, Florida has finnished runner-up twice but they have never met in Omaha.


Virginia 5, Arkansas 3


Daniel Pinero's two stolen bases in the eighth not only gave him three for the day, but also put him in position to score the go-ahead run.
Kenny Towns gives Virginia a 4-3 lead, with all four of the Cavaliers' runs coming with two outs.
Arkansas got its first four innings off to a fast start, but was only able to score the leadoff runner once.
Trey Killian needed just one more pitch than the minimum to retire Virginia in the top of the seventh.
Connor Jones ended the fifth inning by catching an Arkansas runner too far off of first base. 
Both home runs (one each by Joe McCarthy and Andrew Benintendi) were hit to right field. 
Andrew Benintendi ties the game for the third time with his 20th homer of the year, 14 of which have been solo shots. 
Virginia's Joe McCarthy, the 12th batter of the game, goes deep on the 43rd pitch of the first game at the 2015 CWS. Last year, the first home run came in Game 9 when the 671st batter drove the 2,540 pitch over the wall.
