Miami Hurricanes Advance To College World Series With Super Regional Win Over Boston College

What to Know

  • The Miami Hurricanes advanced to the College World Series with a 9-4 victory over Boston College in their Super Regional finale.

No. 9 hitter Edgar Michelangeli hit a grand slam and a three-run homer Sunday to lift Miami to a 9-4 win over Boston College and a spot in the College World Series for the second straight year.

The Hurricanes, the No. 3 national seed, will play Arizona in their first game in Omaha.

The Eagles, seeking their first trip to the College World Series in 49 years, had forced the decisive Game 3 of the Super Regional with a win Saturday, just their second victory in 16 tries at Miami.

The seven RBIs were a career high for Michelangeli, a junior who touched off a near brawl when he celebrated his grand slam, which made the score 9-3 in the seventh inning, by running around the bases with his right hand up.

It will be the Hurricanes' 25th trip to Omaha for the College World Series, as the program looks for their fifth national championship in progam history.
