OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Preston Morrison limited LSU to five hits and a run in seven innings, and TCU capitalized on LSU starter Jared Poche's stunning middle-inning struggles in a 10-3 victory at the College World Series on Sunday.

The Horned Frogs (50-13), in the CWS for the second straight year and third time overall, will play a Bracket 2 winners game against Cal State Fullerton or Vanderbilt on Tuesday night. The Tigers (53-11) meet one of those teams in an elimination game that afternoon.

Morrison (12-2) earned his first win in nine career starts in the NCAA tournament. The Chicago Cubs' eighth-round draft pick struck out five, walked none and retired the last 12 batters he faced.
