COLLEGE WORLD SERIES | Friday’s games


Arkansas 5, Florida 2

OMAHA, NEB.

Isaiah Campbell limited Florida to two hits over 51/3 innings, Arkansas scored four times in five innings against first-round draft pick Brady Singer, and the Razorbacks (47-19) earned a spot in the finals with a win over the defending champion Gators (49-21). Campbell more than atoned for his worst performance of the season when he faced the Gators in a Southeastern Conference series in March. He was at his best this time, matching his career high with eight strikeouts and leaving with a 5-2 lead.

Oregon State 12, Mississippi State 2

OMAHA, Neb.

Oregon State used a five-run second inning to build a big lead and Brandon Eisert pitched a season-long 51/3 innings of one-hit shutout relief. Another win over the Bulldogs (39-18) today would send Oregon State (51-11-1) to the best-of-three CWS finals for the first time since 2007. Eisert (5-3) took over for starter Bryce Fehmel with two outs in the fourth and allowed only a walk in the fifth and a single in the eighth.
