OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Florida State capitalized on a throwing error to score six runs in the third inning, and the Seminoles ended Stony Brook's surprise appearance in the College World Series with a 12-2 victory on Sunday.

Justin Gonzalez and Devon Travis homered to help the Seminoles build an early 9-0 lead against the CWS first-timers from Long Island.

FSU rebounded from a 4-3, 12-inning loss to Arizona on Friday and scored at least 12 runs for the third time in four games.

Stony Brook stunned the college baseball world by upsetting six-time national champion LSU in a three-game super regional to reach the CWS. But the Seawolves were beaten 9-1 by UCLA on Friday and outscored 21-3 in their two games in Omaha.

FSU starter Mike Compton (12-2) allowed two runs and six hits in six innings. Brandon McNitt (8-4) went 3 2-3 innings and gave up nine runs, four earned.

The Seminoles will play UCLA in an elimination game on Tuesday at 9:00 p.m.
