Men’s College World Series 2021: Saturday Scores, Winners and Bracket Results


The College World Series kicked off in Omaha, Nebraska, on Sunday, with two games on tap for college baseball fans.

Below, we’ll break down the day’s results and top moments.

Scores

NC State def. Stanford, 10-4

Vanderbilt vs. Arizona, 7 p.m. ET on ESPN

Recap

NC State is rolling.

The Wolfpack opened their College World Series campaign with a 10-4 win over Stanford, battering the Cardinal after a pair of one-run wins in the Super Regionals.

Jonny Butler had himself a game, with three hits, five RBI and two runs, including a solo home run, while Vojtech Mensik added two RBI and a run.

And Devonte Brown flashed some leather along with power at the plate:

Reid Johnston earned the win for the Wolfpack, throwing six innings of six-hit, four-run ball while striking out five.

Brendan Beck had a tougher outing for Stanford, taking the loss after giving up six runs in 5.2 innings. It was an almost literal hit-or-miss outing for Beck, who also whiffed 10 batters. He took the loss.

Stanford pulled to within 6-4 with a three-run bottom of the seventh and went into the ninth trailing by two. But NC State wasn’t interested in any drama, pushing across four in the top of the inning to put the game out of reach.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that NC State is staying in the winner’s bracket. The Wolfpack eliminated the top-ranked team in the country, Arkansas, during the Super Regionals. They recovered from a mammoth 21-2 loss in the first game of that three-game set before recovering to win two in a row.

The Wolfpack may be the lowest-ranked team on their side of the bracket, but they are starting to look like the favorites in Omaha. They await the winner of Vanderbilt vs. Arizona. Stanford heads to the loser’s bracket with a win-or-go-home contest against the loser of Vanderbilt vs. Arizona.
