OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- Defending national champion Vanderbilt returned to the College World Series finals after Walker Buehler and John Kilichowski combined on a five-hitter and Rhett Wiseman homered in a 7-1 victory over TCU on Friday night.

The Commodores (50-19) move to the best-of-three finals starting Monday against the winner of Saturday's game between 2014 runner-up Virginia and Florida.

Buehler (5-2), making his first start since June 1, allowed four hits and a run and struck out eight in 6 2/3 innings. Kilichowski allowed one hit the rest of the way.

TCU starter Tyler Alexander (6-3) was touched for three runs and seven hits in 2 1/3 innings for the Horned Frogs (51-15).
