It’s a second elimination game in Omaha as well as a chance for redemption for the Seminoles on Wednesday night.

NCAA Baseball: College World Series-Cal State Fullerton vs Florida State Steven Branscombe-USA TODAY Sports

The roller coaster that is the Florida State baseball season carries on Wednesday night at 7 PM when the Seminoles face their second College World Series elimination game in three days while also having a shot at redemption for Saturday’s self-induced loss to LSU.

This time, the Tigers are fresh off a 13-1 spanking at the hands of the Oregon State Beavers and will have to bounce back quickly should they wish to keep their season alive.

FSU will turn to sophomore Cole Sands (6-3, 5.05 ERA) on the mound with its season on the line. LSU will counter with Jared Poche, who was impressive in relief in the Tigers’ comeback win over the Seminoles last Saturday.
