FAU Has Big Day at CWS,
Thanks to Big Train Past and Present
 
Florida Atlantic advanced to play North Carolina in a winner-take-all game for their Regional at the College World Series yesterday as they were able to win two games in one day to stay alive.

In the first game, the Owls faced Towson and were helped by Mitch Morales(BT '12) - pictured above #2 -as he went 2 for 3 and scored a run. But it was Hugh Adams (BT '06-'12) - pictured above #44 - who came up really big as he shut down the Tigers for the final two innings (0ER, H, BB, HBP, 3K) and allowed his team to win the game at the plate. Adams earned his third win of the season.
Later that day, the Owls faced the Tarheels of North Carolina, who were the #1 seed in the region, needed a win to force a one-game playoff on Monday. Though they went down 2-0, Bo Logan (BT '12) kept one of the best teams in the country under control for five innings (8H, BB, 2HBP, 3K) as the Owls lurked in wait. 

"He was the key to the game," FAU coach John McCormack said. "To be able to come into this atmosphere, and do what he did, he was fantastic. It was more than we anticipated."

Though they had no hits at the time, Ricky Santiago (BT '13) made their first hit count as he hit a three-run homer to take the lead for Florida Atlantic. Refusing to be unavailable for the game, Adams reappeared from the bullpen to pick up the save in the ninth inning to seal it for the Owls.

"He would not let us not make him available," McCormack said of Adams. "He's one of the greatest competitors we've ever had in my 21 years at FAU."
The Owls and 'Heels will face off at 6:00PM today for the right to play in a CWS Super Regional.
