CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) — No. 9 hitter Edgar Michelangeli hit a grand slam and a three-run homer Sunday to lift Miami to a 9-4 win over Boston College and a spot in the College World Series for the second straight year.
The Hurricanes, the No. 3 national seed, will play Arizona in their first game in Omaha.
The Eagles, seeking their first trip to the College World Series in 49 years, had forced the decisive Game 3 of the Super Regional with a win Saturday, just their second victory in 16 tries at Miami.
The seven RBIs were a career high for Michelangeli, a junior who touched off a near brawl when he celebrated his grand slam — which made the score 9-3 in the seventh inning — by running around the bases with his right hand up.
