              === Florida-Vanderbilt game suspended by weather ===
 
 Omaha,  NE (Sports  Network) -  Florida was  leading Vanderbilt,  3-1, in  the
 bottom of the sixth inning Monday night when the game was stopped because of a
 line of approaching bad weather that spawned a tornado watch in the area.
 
 After  a delay  of nearly 2 1/2  hours, the game was finally suspended for the
 evening at 10:30 p.m. local time and scheduled to re-start Tuesday morning.
 
 Both  teams are 1-0 so far and seeking control of their bracket in the College
 World  Series. The  loser will  play  North Carolina,  which eliminated  Texas
 earlier Monday.
 
 Florida  took  a 3-0 lead  in the fourth  inning on Preston Tucker's three-run
 homer  to right  field off Vanderbilt starter Grayson Garvin, who hadn't given
 up a hit through the first three frames.
 
 Gators  starter Karsten  Whitson worked  4 2/3  innings. He  was pulled  after
 giving  up an RBI  single to Anthony Gomez in the fifth that drew Vandy within
 3-1.
 
 Vanderbilt  was batting  with two outs in  the sixth when the game was stopped
 and the tarp rolled onto the field before the rain began to fall in earnest.
 
 Florida  beat Texas  8-4 and  Vanderbilt topped  North Carolina  7-3 in  their
 Saturday openers.
 
 North Carolina got a dazzling four-hit shutout from Kent Emanuel on Monday and
 eliminated Texas from the CWS with a 3-0 victory.
 
 Emanuel  fanned five and  walked one batter in his second complete game of the
 season.
 
 Jacob  Stallings ripped  a two-run single and Ben Bunting belted an RBI double
 among  his four hits  for North Carolina. Levi Michael and Colin Moran added a
 hit apiece in the win.
 
 Jonathan  Walsh smacked two of Texas' four hits, while starter Cole Green took
 the  loss after  allowing two runs in  two-plus innings. He gave up five hits,
 walked one and struck out one.
 
 Tant Shepherd and Jacob Felts had the other two hits for the Longhorns.
 
 North  Carolina took  the lead for good  in the third, when leadoff singles by
 Chaz  Frank and  Bunting put runners on  the corners. Green was pulled at that
 point and Hoby Milner came in, nearly getting Texas out of the jam.
 
 Milner struck out the first two batters he faced, but Stallings stepped up and
 clubbed an 0-2 pitch into center field to plate both runners.
 
 North  Carolina  tacked on  another run  in the ninth.  Bunting smacked an 0-2
 fastball  from  Texas reliever  Andrew McKirahan  off the base  of the wall in
 right field to plate Jeff Bouton, who had entered as a pinch-runner after Greg
 Holt led off the inning with a walk.
 
 But  all North Carolina's offense needed to score was one run, given Emanuel's
 brilliance.  The freshman  left-hander allowed only one runner to reach second
 base all game and retired the final seven batters he faced.
