Clemson knocks Okla. to loser's bracket, waits for next opp.

OMAHA, NE (AP) - Clemson took advantage of Oklahoma's fourth-inning pitching meltdown and a costly error in the fifth to beat the Sooners 6-4 at the College World Series. Oklahoma scored each of the last three innings but couldn't come all the way back from the 6-1 deficit it faced when the game was suspended after the fifth inning Tuesday because of weather.

The Tigers move to the Bracket 2 championship game on Friday against either Oklahoma (50-17) or South Carolina. Those teams play today, and the winner would have to beat Clemson twice to make it to next week's best-of-three finals.

In the second game, TCU rallied with eight runs in the eighth and eliminated Florida State 11-7. Matt Curry hit the go-ahead grand slam for the Horned Frogs, who meet UCLA on Friday. TCU needs to beat the Bruins twice to reach next week's best-of-three finals.
