Nobody could believe that FSU would lose a game that they went up 6-0 in the first two innings, and let their first super regional win on Friday since 2000 slip out of their fingers.
Luckily, thanks to Mike McGee, they didn’t have to believe it.
After Vanderbilt scored 7 straight runs after FSU went up 6-0, the Seminoles and the Commodores went back and forth in the last 3 innings, and Mike McGee got the last word, hitting a walk off solo home run to put the Seminoles one win away from Omaha and the College World Series.
It was a farmiliar site for Florida State fans. The Seminoles have lived on rallies and game winning hits and home runs this season. Most of them have come from McGee. ESPN analysts have noticed this, one saying that if there was a Most Valuable Player award in college baseball, Mike McGee would have their vote.
Sherman Johnson and Jayce Boyd also hit homers in Game 1 of the Tallahassee Super Regional. Johnson hit a two-run homer in the 2nd inning and Boyd hit a solo homer in the 7th.
The Noles will try to advance to the College World Series in Omaha tomorrow. They have two chances to advance, on Saturday and on Sunday. Good luck to Florida State!
