FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) Aaron Brown pitched seven scoreless innings and made a game-saving throw from center field as Pepperdine beat TCU 3-2 on Sunday night, forcing a deciding third game in the NCAA Fort Worth super regional for a spot in the College World Series.
Brandon Caruso had a pair of RBI hits and Hutton Moyer scored twice for the Waves (43-17).
Brown (13-1), the two-way player who was the West Coast Conference pitcher of the year and a third-round pick by Philadelphia on Friday, won his 10th consecutive decision. The lefty scattered five hits with four strikeouts and two walks while throwing 119 pitches against TCU (46-16).
After Brown went to center field, his strong throw home cut off the tying run to end the eighth inning.
Game 3 is Monday night.
