Omaha, Neb. • Florida State capitalized on a throwing error to score six runs in the third inning, and the Seminoles ended Stony Brook's surprise appearance in the College World Series with a 12-2 victory on Sunday.
Justin Gonzalez and Devon Travis homered to help the Seminoles build an early 9-0 lead against the CWS first-timers from Long Island.
FSU (49-16) rebounded from a 4-3, 12-inning loss to Arizona on Friday and scored at least 12 runs for the third time in four games.
Stony Brook (52-15) stunned the college baseball world by upsetting six-time national champion LSU in a three-game super regional to reach the CWS. But the Seawolves were beaten 9-1 by UCLA on Friday and outscored 21-3 in their two games in Omaha.
FSU starter Mike Compton (12-2) allowed two runs and six hits in six innings. Brandon McNitt (8-4) went 3 2-3 innings and gave up nine runs, four earned.
Florida State led 2-0 in the third when everything started to unravel for the Seawolves. Jayce Boyd's grounder to shortstop should have been the third out, but Cole Peragine was short with his throw to first, and the ball got away from Kevin Courtney.
That allowed two runs to score, and Gonzalez followed with a three-run homer into the left-field bullpen that made it 7-0. Five of the six runs Florida State scored in the third were unearned.
The six runs were the most by a team in an inning in 19 CWS games played at TD Ameritrade Park.
The lead grew to 9-0 the next inning after Travis, the last batter McNitt faced, hit a drive to nearly the same spot as Gonzalez.
Six of the Seminoles' 11 hits went for extra bases, and Florida State didn't leave any runners on base until the eighth inning.
Stony Brook, a Division I baseball program for only 12 years, came to town much celebrated for its "Shock The World" mantra after its upset of LSU on the road.
The Seawolves were the first team from the Northeast to play at the CWS since Maine in 1986, and they brought with them huge offensive numbers.
Stony Brook entered the CWS with a .335 batting average that ranked second nationally, but the Seawolves hit a combined .194 (12 of 62) in their two games.
Arizona 4, UCLA 0 •Konner Wade pitched a five-hit shutout, Arizona did its scoring on five straight fourth-inning hits, and the Wildcats beat Pac-12 rival UCLA 4-0 in the College World Series on Sunday night.
The win puts the Wildcats (45-17) in control of Bracket 1 and gives them three days off. They are one victory away from the best-of-three finals, in which they would play for their fourth national championship and first since 1986.
UCLA (48-15), which lost for the first time in 11 games, plays Florida State in an elimination game on Tuesday.
Wade (10-3) outdueled Nick Vander Tuig (10-4), throwing his first career shutout and fifth complete game of the season.
It was Arizona's sixth shutout in 62 CWS games and its first since Craig Lefferts blanked Michigan in 1980.
Seth Mejias-Brean's bases-loaded single drove in the Wildcats' first two runs, and Bobby Brown followed with a two-RBI double.
