NCAA Baseball Super Regional Scores: Texas 5, Arizona State 1

The Texas Longhorns live to fight another day. The Longhorns beat the Arizona State Sun Devils 5-1 in Game 2 of their Super Regional, forcing a decisive third and final game to determine which team is headed to Omaha for the College World Series.

Cole Green turned in a solid start for the Longhorns, despite pitching just five innings. Green gave up one run on six hits and a walk while striking out four en route to the victory.

Corey Knebel was credited with the save after pitching two scoreless innings without allowing a base runner and striking out three.

Offensively for Texas, second baseman Jordan Etier propelled the Longhorns. Etier went 3-4 at the plate with a run scored and three runs batted in - all coming on a ninth inning home run. 

Game three will be held on Sunday - and it'll be an elimination game for both teams. The winner of Game 3 will head to Omaha to participate in the College World Series.
