Texas in CWS final; await opponent
Taylor Teagarten knocks one out (Matt Rourke/Austin American-Statesman)
The Texas Longhorns made the final of the College World Series, beating the Baylor Bears 4-3 on a walk-off homer by Chance Wheeless to win Bracket 2.
Their opponent... Well, that's going to have to wait a day. Arizona State beat Florida behind the pitching of Erik Averill, 600th draft pick overall to the Detroit Tigers, who pitched a complete game on 2 days rest.
The rematch has been moved to primetime (6 PM on ESPN) and should be an all out battle.
