TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Andrew Darr's two-run double in the bottom of the ninth inning lifted Arkansas to a 9-8 NCAA Super Regional win Saturday over Florida State and a berth in the College World Series.

Darr, who was hitting just .215 coming into the game, had four of Arkansas' 10 hits, including his fourth homer of the year.

Arkansas (39-22) returns to the CWS in Omaha, Neb. for the first time since 2004 when it also beat Florida State.

The Seminoles (45-18) had taken an 8-7 lead in the top of the ninth when Stephen Cardullo singled in two runs and then scored a short-lived go-ahead run on a Jason Stidham single.

Arkansas' Stephen Richards (6-1) got the win despite giving up three runs in the ninth. Jack Posey (0-1) took the loss.
