Mississippi State (49-18) moved on to Monday's game with Indiana by beating Oregon State 5-4 earlier.
DeNato allowed three singles and a double in his second complete game. He struck out eight and walked three. Indiana is the first Big Ten team in the CWS since Michigan in 1984 and gave the conference its first win in Omaha since the Wolverines beat Stanford in 1983.
With DeNato's performance, IU becomes the first school to toss a shutout in its first CWS game since Georgia Tech in 1994 (beat Cal State Fullerton 2-0). Georgia Tech went on to play in the championship game that year. Read the full recap at IUHoosiers.com.
