Both the Texas Tech Red Raiders and the Louisville Cardinals came into Omaha as one of the eight teams in the 2014 College World Series, but just three days after the event started, both of their stays are now over.
The Red Raiders, making their first appearance ever in the College World Series, were eliminated on Tuesday afternoon in their elimination game by the Ole Miss Rebels. Down 1-0 going into the ninth inning, they did all they could to keep their national title hopes alive, tying things up headed into the bottom-half of the inning.
Unfortunately, they couldn’t hold off the Ole Miss bats, nor get out of their own way with some throwing errors, and they let the Rebels walk away with the 2-1 win, and will now head back to Lubbock.
Louisville, one of the more successful programs the past few years, definitely hoped that their stay would have been a little longer, but they couldn’t avoid the inevitable exit in the end.
After a close loss to Vanderbilt on Saturday, the Cardinals were shown the door on Monday by the Texas Longhorns, although that one really wasn’t all that close as Texas walked away with the 4-1 win.
Now, after starting the weekend with eight teams in Omaha, we’re down to six that are still vying for the national championship.
