Designated hitter Greg Ellena had four of Miami's 14 hits tonight and reliever Rick Raether again shut down Texas as the Hurricanes won the NCAA College World Series, 10-6.
Ellena drove in one run and scored twice as the sixth-ranked Hurricanes (64-16) became the fifth team to win the title from the losers' bracket of the double-elimination tournament.
No. 3 Texas (63-17) finished second for a second straight year.
Ellena went 12 for 25 in the tournament and tied a College World Series record with 22 total bases.
"This is like a dream," he said after being named MVP. "Even in Legion ball, I didn't win a lot of trophies and I never played on a championship team."
Raether pitched the final 2 1/3 innings and earned his third save to go with two victories in the tournament. One victory came Sunday night in a 2-1 defeat of Texas.
The Hurricanes held a 6-1 lead after three innings with the help of four Texas errors. Don Rowland's ground ball scored the first run and a throwing error allowed another in the first.
Mike Fiore led off a four-run third with a double and scored one out later on a passed ball. Ellena then got his second hit of the game to chase starter Bruce Ruffin (13-3).
Rusty DeBold and Chris Hart singled to score Ellena. DeBold scored when the hit bounced past right fielder Dennis Cook and Hart came in on another throwing error.
Miami scored twice in the fifth and got its final runs in the sixth.
Texas, which twice had come from far behind to win in the series, scored three in the seventh before Raether relieved starter Kevin Sheary (7-4), who won his third Series game.
"I gave up six runs and usually that's enough to beat us, but our hitters really came through tonight," Sheary said.
