The victor of the double-elimination regional earns a spot in the NCAA Super Regionals.

The speculation entering the ACC Tournament was that the Miami baseball team had to at least reach the Championship game to have at best an outside chance at an at-large bid. The two teams will meet at 9:50 p.m. CT Saturday on ESPNU.

While the Cards' pitching struggled a bit to open the game, their offense continued to fire on all cylinders. Danny Oriente and Logan Wyatt each had two hits, a run and an RBI for the Cardinals in the loss.

Their next 6 runs scored came exclusively off the long ball.

"Now the real season starts", senior third baseman Michael Gretler said. FSU is now 7-1 this season in extra-inning games.

Starting pitcher Andrew Karp left early after giving up a pair of home runs in the fourth inning, but the Seminoles got strong efforts from relievers Scolaro and Clayton Kwiatkowski.

The Seminoles took the second game of the contest, 8-5.

The Cardinal Nine had been playing relatively disciplined baseball as of late after having a subpar defense in the middle of the season, but the young team showed their youth today.

Drew Mendoza hit a two-run double in the 10th inning, and the Seminoles beat Louisville 11-8 on Sunday to win their third ACC Tournament championship in four years.

Raleigh extended his hitting streak to 15 games with a two-run double in the first, and Florida State led 5-1 before Louisville rallied to take the lead, with Britton's homer making it 7-5.

With Cofer's return, head coach Leonard Hamilton will have a stable, veteran presence to help the Seminoles pursue another deep NCAA tournament run during the 2018-19 season. A double scored two runners and a sac-RBI at the next at-bat scored three runs in the final inning. What seed the Hogs receive, along with the other three teams in the Fayetteville Regional are scheduled to be announced on Monday at 11 a.m.
