College World Series 2012 Results: Stanford Routed, Eliminated By Florida State

The Stanford Cardinal didn’t stand a chance in Tallahassee. Their pitching imploded from the outset of their Super Regional contest, giving up a combined 35 runs in two games to the hard-hitting Florida State Seminoles.

In Game 1 on Friday, first round draft pick Mark Appel was shelled for seven runs (five earned) in four innings before being chased. The Cardinal ended up surrendering 17 runs in a 17-1 defeat, and looked totally feckless for most of the contest.

Stanford bowed out in a slightly less embarrassing but still humbling performance on Sunday, as they rallied with a four-run bout in the bottom of the seventh to cut a 10-2 lead to 10-6 before Florida State buried the Cardinal with eight runs in the eighth inning. Florida State will now move on to face Arizona in the College World Series.
