The tournament's top two seeds — No. 1 Texas and No. 2 Oklahoma State — were eliminated after going 0-2.
The Horned Frogs had a 2-1 lead when they broke it open with four runs in the seventh inning. A.J. Balta and Michael Landestoy each drove in two runs in the inning to push TCU's lead to 6-1. The Frogs added two more runs in the eighth. Balta has eight RBIs in two tournament games and is hitting .309. TCU batters walked seven times a day after walking 14 times against Texas Tech.
TCU starting pitcher Sean Wymer earned the win after holding WVU to one run on six hits over five innings.
"I have been asking for the ball for two or three weeks," said Wymer, who was told by TCU coach Jim Schlossnagle on Monday he would get the start. "He said, 'You asked for the ball, you're going to get it. Go do what you can do.' "
Jake Eissler tossed three scoreless innings of relief and closer Durbin Feltman returned from an injury for the first time since April 27 and struck out three in the ninth.
"[It was] a really, really big lift for our team to see an All-American closer get back on the field," Schlossnagle said.
