Coastal Carolina opened its first College World Series campaign with a massive 2-1 upset of top-seeded Florida. 

The Gators and Chanticleers, respectively, came ready to play. 

The first run of the game came with some controversy and history. For the first time in the College World Series, umpires went to video replay and overturned a call to make what was originally ruled a Zach Remillard foul ball an RBI double. 

Judge for yourself. 

Coastal Carolina's dugout erupted after the play, which gave the Chanticleers a 1-0 lead.

Both teams played stellar defense throughout the game with plays like this.

 

And this:

The Gators bounced back with an RBI single from pinch-hitter Jeremy Vasquez. And the Gator fans rejoiced. 

But Remillard struck again with an RBI triple, and this one was much less controversial.

Coastal Carolina right-handed pitcher Andrew Beckwith and Florida righty Logan Shore both had solid outings, but Beckwith was able to go the distance. 

The game gives the Chanticleers more opportunities to use the team's extensive handshake.
