BATON ROUGE, LOUISIANA – Florida State Seminoles are headed back to Omaha for the College World Series after they swept the LSU Tigers at Alex Box Stadium in Baton Rouge over the weekend.
The Seminoles defeated LSU 5-4 in extra innings after Drew Mendoza knocked in the game-winning run in the bottom of the 12th inning, giving Florida State their 23rd appearance in the College World Series.
Head Coach Mike Martin, who is retiring after this season, will be seeking his first National Championship in 40 years as Florida State’s head coach.
Florida State’s last appearance in the CWS was in 2017, while their last national championship appearance dates back to 1999.
The Seminoles (41-21) will face off next week in Omaha against the winner of the Ole Miss and Arkansas game.
Former Rockledge Raider Drew Parrish is expected to be the starting pitcher for the Seminoles’ first game in Omaha.
