Vols win 7-2 and will play either Texas A&M or Florida in the CWS Finals in a best-of-three series starting Saturday.

INSTANT ANALYSIS:Tennessee baseball beats FSU behind Zander Sechrist, advances to College World Series final

Blake Burke launches a long home run to right center to extend the Vols' lead to 7-2. It's the 20th home run of the year for Burke, who is the fifth Vol with 20 or more home runs this year.

A 1-4-3 double play cleans up a FSU leadoff single, and Kirby Connell has thrown 1.2 scoreless innings. The Vols are three outs away from the CWS championship series.

With two on and two out, Christian Moore grounds out to shortstop to end the inning.

FSU's Daniel Cantu and Alex Lodise hit back-to-back home runs, and that's the end of the day for Zander Sechrist.

Kirby Connell comes in and wraps up the FSU 7th with consecutive outs.

With two outs, Billy Amick hit a double down the third-base line before Dylan Dreiling's RBI single. Vols up 6-0 and are nine outs from the finals.

FSU has had some hard-hit balls, but otherwise Zander Sechrist has been very good in six scoreless innings. He is at 66 pitches, allowing three hits with three strikeouts.

Christian Moore lines a triple to the right field wall, scoring Cal Stark. Moore has reached in all three plate appearances so far today. Vols lead 5-0.

FSU gets a leadoff single and a double to open the bottom of the third inning before two terrible baserunning plays helped Zander Sechrist out of the jam.

Jaxson West is thrown out by 15 feet at home on a chopper to shortstop. Dean Curley made a good read as West hesitated before running home. Then, a 3-6 double play ended the inning where Blake Burke stepped on first base before throwing to second base for the final out ahead of Max Williams touching home plate. Williams was not sprinting by the end of the play, but he would have scored had he touched home ahead the tag at second.

Kudos to Sechrist for producing the critical ground balls, but FSU had a couple unforced baserunning errors.

Christian Moore walked with two out then moved to second base on a balk. Blake Burke drove Moore in with a RBI single. Vols lead is 4-0.

Hunter Ensley hit the outfield wall when he made a highlight-reel catch in Sunday's game, and is playing DH after leaving Sunday's game early.

Kavares Tears is in center on Wednesday, and he made a similarly-spectacular catch up against the wall in the first inning. I mean, c'mon.

Christian Moore walked, Blake Burke hit a single and Billy Amick reached on a RBI fielder's choice to score Moore. Dylan Dreiling then walked before a Hunter Ensley RBI single on a line-drive to left field.

FSU is making a pitching change. John Abraham threw 18 pitches, allowing two runs on two hits and a walk while getting just one out.

After another force-out at second base for the second out, new FSU pitcher Brennan Oxford's pick-off throw is not received by first baseman Daniel Cantu. Dreiling scores. Tennessee leads 3-0 after a half-inning.
