Omaha Heartbreak for FSU Baseball

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- Johnny Field's RBI double in the top of the 12th inning lifted Arizona to a 4-3 victory over Florida State in the College World Series on Friday night.

Joey Rickard had doubled into the left-center gap for the Wildcats' first hit off Florida State closer Robert Benincasa (4-2), who came on in the ninth. Field followed with his two-base hit to right, driving in Rickard.

The Seminoles scored two unearned runs off Arizona starter Kurt Heyer to tie it 3-3 in the sixth but had only three batters reach base the rest of the way.

Wildcats freshman closer Mathew Troupe (5-1) worked the last 2 2-3 innings for the win, striking out Devon Travis to end the game with a runner on third.

Arizona (44-17) plays UCLA on Sunday night in a meeting of Pac-12 co-champions. The Seminoles (48-16) meet Stony Brook in an elimination game Sunday.
