University of Miami baseball fans may with great confidence book flights to the College World Series now. Nonrefundable tickets? Not a problem. Might also want to beat the rush and make a reservation now for next weekend at your favorite Omaha steak place for some of that corn-fed beef.

Florida ace Justin Hoyman, who dominated UM earlier this season, struggled on the mound but even more off it -- committing two crucial errors in the 8-7 loss.

Clutch pitching by freshman Danny Gil and a season-high five errors by the Gators helped the Canes win Game 1 at Mark Light.
