Tennessee is headed to the finals of the College World Series.

It will be a best of three series starting Saturday.

The Vols downed Florida State, 7-2, on Wednesday for their second win over the Seminoles at Omaha.

Zander Sechrist held a strong Florida State offense in check until finally yielding two home runs in the bottom of the seventh. That cut the Vol lead to 6-2, but Blake Burke homered in the top of the ninth to get the run back.

In the first, Tennessee got hits from Christian Moore and Burke before there was an out. Moore came in on a fielder's choice groundout by Billy Amick. Hunter Ensley then knocked in Amick.

Still in the first, Dylan Dreiling came around on a throwing error by pitcher Brennen Oxford.

Burke knocked in Moore in the top of the second, pushing the score to 4-0.

Moore tripled to the right field corner in the bottom of the fourth, plating catcher Cal Stark.

In the seventh, Dreiling singled to right, bringing home Amick.

Kirby Connell and Nate Snead held the Seminoles in check the rest of the way after Sechrist exited.
