Undefeated freshman Matt Purke limited Florida State to four singles and one unearned run over seven innings as Omaha newcomer TCU scored five times in the first inning on its way to an 8-1 victory in the opening game of the College World Series Saturday afternoon.

The Horned Frogs (52-12) advance to a Monday night game against the winner of Saturday night's Florida-UCLA game.

The Seminoles (47-19), at the CWS for the 20th time, have lost five of their last six CWS openers and will play the Florida-UCLA loser in a Monday afternoon Bracket 1 elimination game.

Jason Coats' double into the left-field corner gave the Horned Frogs a 2-1 lead before Seminoles' starter Sean Gilmartin recorded an out.
