CORAL GABLES, Fla. – If the Hurricanes baseball team is going to continue their 44-year NCAA tournament streak, they needed a major jolt.
Miami may have gotten it on Saturday night.
Brandon Gali scored the game-winning run in the 10th inning off a Florida State error to give Miami a 5-4 win over their rivals from Tallahassee.
Michael Burns drilled a grand slam to score the other four runs for the 'Canes (19-20, 10-10 Atlantic Coast Conference).
Jackson Lueck tied the game for the Seminoles (25-16, 10-10 ACC) with a home run in the eighth.
Sophomore Andrew Cabezas (1-2) pitched the final 3.1 innings to earn the win. He struck out four batters.
First pitch of the rubber game is Sunday at noon. The Hurricanes could use a series win to keep their postseason hopes alive.
Miami hasn't missed out on the NCAA tournament since 1972.
