Curry's slam powers TCU to epic comeback in College World Series

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Matt Curry hit a go-ahead grand slam in TCU's eight-run eighth inning and the Horned Frogs eliminated Florida State from the College World Series with a 11-7 victory Wednesday night.

The dramatic win carries the Frogs to the Bracket 1 championship game in their first CWS appearance. They will play UCLA on Friday,
needing to beat the Bruins twice to reach next week's best-of-three finals.

The Seminoles, without a national title in 20 CWS appearances, went 1-2 this year after blowing a five-run lead in an error-filled performance against TCU.

The Frogs trailed 7-3 entering the eighth, and it was a two-run game when Curry came to bat against closer Mike McGee. Erik Miller (1-1) got the win for TCU. McGee (4-1) took the loss.
