The Cal State Fullerton Titans baseball team is headed to the College World Series for the second time in three years after defeating Long Beach State 2 -- 1 on Sunday and taking the final two games of their best of three series.

Despite losing the first game of their Super Regionals match up with the Dirtbags 3 -- 0, the Titans dusted themselves off to take Game 2 in a rout 12 -- 0 before holding on late to finish off the series and clinch a trip to Omaha.
While the Titans are headed to play in their 18th College World Series, it's disappointment for a Long Beach State team that entered the regional tournament as the No. 1 seed and was 5-1 against Fullerton in the regular season.
