Boomer White drove in the go-ahead run in a dramatic eighth inning, and TCU beat Big 12 rival Texas Tech 3-2 in the College World Series on Sunday.
The Horned Frogs (48-16) fell behind in the top of the eighth after starting pitcher Preston Morrison left the game, but they came back in the bottom half against Tech closer Jonny Drozd.
TCU, the No. 7 national seed, moves to a Tuesday game against the winner between Virginia and Mississippi on Sunday night. Texas Tech (45-20), in the CWS for the first time, will play the Virginia-Ole Miss loser in the afternoon.
TCU closer Riley Ferrell (3-1) earned the win in relief of Preston Morrison, who allowed five singles and struck out a career-high 10 in 7 1-3 innings. Drozd (7-1) took the loss.
