OMAHA, Neb. -- TCU saw its run in the College World Series end with a 3-0 loss to Florida on Saturday night. It was just the third time this season the Horned Frogs were shutout.

The Rundown
For the second time in the College World Series, the Frogs fell victim to first-round draft pick Alex Faedo. He held the Frogs in check, working around a quartet of walks and three hits. No TCU hitter reached third base in the contest.

Florida struck for single runs in the second, fifth and seventh innings. Mike Rivera's RBI-ground out in the second with runners on the corners put the Gators up 1-0. A hit batter in the fourth scored on a double from Christian Hicks. A two-out bad-hop single off of first base drove in the final run of the game.

TCU had its chances in the game, but couldn't solve Faedo. A pair of two-out walks to Connor Wanhanen and Josh Watson were stranded in the second. Two more runners were left on in the seventh.

The Frogs best chance to get on the board came in the eighth after back-to-back singles from Austen Wade and Zach Humphreys. Florida closer Michael Byrne wiggled out of the jam with a strikeout and a flyout.

Jared Janczak (9-2) allowed the three runs on seven hits and struck out seven. Durbin Feltman retired all six batters he faced, striking out five.
