Despite flaws, Florida confident CWS matchup with LSU for national title

Despite flaws, Florida confident CWS matchup with LSU for national title”

LSU pitcher Alex Lange delivers a pitch during the third inning of an NCAA College World Series baseball game against OR in Omaha, Neb., Friday, June 23, 2017. The Horned Frogs defeated the Gators 9-3 on June 23, but Florida eliminated TCU the next day with a 3-0 win to punch its ticket to the CWS Finals.

Tiger starter Alex Lange and freshman reliever Zack Hess combined to throw a two-hitter and push LSU into a showdown with Oregon State Saturday afternoon.

Fehmel (6-3) left after two and a third innings, having allowed four runs on four hits with two walks and one strikeout.

Familiarity will be a focus in the best-of-three set as the co-SEC regular season champs meet at the sport's grandest stage. It appeared that the stars were aligning for OSU as they came from behind to beat Cal State Fullerton in game one, and smashed LSU in game two.

The LSU Tigers earned a berth in the championship series of the College World Series on Saturday, thanks in large part to the bat of catcher Michael Papierski.

LSU has won six national championships, taking home the trophy in 1991, 1993, 1996, 1997, 2000 and 2011.

That's how the College World Series ended up with an all-SEC final for the first time since SC defeated Florida in 2011.

For Oregon St.it was the first time all season that they have lost back-to-back games.

To get to the College World Series championship series, the LSU Tigers had to do something no team had done against the No. 1 Oregon State Beavers.

In the 2017 NCAA Tournament, Faedo has now pitched 27 1/3 innings with just one run allowed while striking out 44 batters. The 56 overall wins are also a school record.

He was backed by Papierski, who homered from the left side off Bryce Fehmel in the second inning (a three-run shot) and from the right side off Brandon Eisert in the fourth (a solo blast). ESPN replays clearly showed the ball hit the padding.

P Michael Byrne took over on the mound for Faedo halfway through the eighth inning.

Faedo and the Gators shut out TCU (50-18) for the second time this week by matching 3-0 scores.

"I hope people would just kind of let that go", Mainieri said, "because Mike's done a phenomenal job for a lot of years, impacted a lot of lives, and I think he's a phenomenal coach".

"I felt like with our starting pitching we had four legit starting pitchers that could give us a chance, and they did", TCU head coach Jim Schlossnagle said.

The Gators will presumably start sophomore right-hander Brady Singer (8-5, 3.18 ERA) on Monday while LSU could turn to Jared Poche' (12-3, 3.33), though no official pitching decisions have been announced. I was like: "Get foul, get foul".

"We get to play another day". Kwan shortened what had been a more drastic leg kick before a late-March series against Stanford and emerged as an elite leadoff hitter. "When the ball's hit down the line, I didn't think he hit it as good as he did, but he got the barrel there", Lange said.

The Tigers' seven home runs by their fifth game in this CWS are five more than they hit in their previous five games in TD Ameritrade when they went 0-2 in 2013 and 1-2 in 2015. "Because we all go through ups and downs", Florida coach Kevin O'Sullivan said.

LSU doubled that hit total in the third inning Saturday and sent Fehmel to the showers as Antoine Duplantis singled in a run for a 4-0 lead.

LSU, who outhit Oregon St., 8-3, was led at the plate by Papierski, who hit two homers and drove in four runs, while Robertson went 3-for-3, and Jordan contributed two hits, including his solo long ball.
