Darr's double gives Hogs 9-8 win over Fla. State

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Andrew Darr's two-run double in the bottom of the ninth inning lifted Arkansas to a 9-8 NCAA Super Regional win Saturday over Florida State and a berth in the College World Series.

Darr, who was hitting just .215 coming into the game, had 4 of Arkansas' 10 hits, including his fourth homer of the year.

Arkansas (39-22) returns to the CWS in Omaha, Neb. for the first time since 2004 when it also beat Florida State.

The Seminoles (45-18) had taken an 8-7 lead in the top of the ninth when Stephen Cardullo singled in two runs and then scored a short-lived go-ahead run on a Jason Stidham single.

Arkansas' Stephen Richards (6-1) got the win despite giving up three runs in the ninth. Jack Posey (0-1) took the loss.
