      TCU rallies for CWS berth, 6-5 over Pepperdine

      Kyle Bacak executed a suicide squeeze bunt to send home the tiebreaking run in the top of the ninth inning and TCU rallied to beat Pepperdine 6-5 Monday and advance to the College World Series for the second time in five seasons.

      The Horned Frogs (47-16), the visiting team in Game 3 despite hosting the super regional, started the ninth with three consecutive hits off Pepperdine closer Eric Karch (4-2) that included Dylan Fitzgerald's tying RBI double.

      There was an infield popout before No. 9 batter Bacak bunted. Jerrick Suiter, who had reached on a high-chopping infield single, charged home from third.

      TCU closer Riley Ferrell (2-1) got the final six outs. Pepperdine (43-18) had two runners on when Bryan Langlois struck out to end the game.
