Faedo fabulous again, Florida beats TCU to go to CWS finals

Faedo fabulous again, Florida beats TCU to go to CWS finals”

Florida advanced to play LSU, which defeated Oregon State to win the other bracket in the afternoon Saturday game. "Throw strikes and play better defense".

"I think this is how it had to be", LSU shortstop Kramer Robertson said Sunday. The Gators emerged from the Gainesville regional with a 6-1 win over Bethune-Cookman in an elimination game to face off against Wake Forest in the Super Regionals. Should that ball have been ruled a ground-rule double, Friday's game could have changed completely. The right-hander, whose postseason resurgence pushed the Beavers deep into the postseason, allowed four hits and four runs - three of which came on a two-out second inning home run to right field by LSU catcher Michael Papierski.

"We believe in ourselves", Oregon State coach Pat Casey said, "and we're still 56-5 or whatever we are".

Deichmann's double in the second inning ended an 0-for-24 drought for left-handed hitters in the CWS against Oregon State pitchers.

After recording a season-low two hits on Friday, the Beavers managed only three against Gilbert and reliever Zack Hess on Saturday. He pitched 8 innings, allowing only 2 hits. "I wish I could tell you that I went to bed last night and dreamt that Caleb Gilbert would give us seven shutout innings on one-hit ball, and that Michael Papierski was going to launch one out from each side of the plate, and that (LSU designated hitter) Beau Jordan was going to tomahawk a 97-mile-an-hour fastball into the stands, but I'd be lying if I told you that". "We have to grind out every single at bat and they're going to have to make quality pitches".

"I could not see the ball".

Fourth-seeded LSU bounced back from a 13-1 loss to Oregon State on Monday and reached the championship round for the first time since winning the national title in 2009.

The Tigers (52-18) scored in four of the first six innings. We tried to go out and win the next pitch, the next out, the next game, whatever it might be.

"I put some good swings on fastballs today", Papierski said, per the Associated Press (h/t ESPN.com). Gilbert retired the first 11 batters he faced with five strikeouts. "We tried hard", Schlossnagle said.

"I know there will be a time when they get to sit back and reflect and realize what they accomplished", he said. Fehmel got knocked out of the game today with one out in the third and down 4-0.

Papierski seems best suited to illustrate the larger point: The home run is once again part of the college baseball experience.

Coach Paul Mainieri's comments: "It was unbelievable what Caleb Gilbert did".

Who is starting Game 1 of the College World Series for Florida and LSU?

"I'm not really sure", Schwarz said of the week in Omaha. "I think what stays true is what they talked about, the culture of a program, our great coaching staff and our awesome administration".

Faedo held TCU to three hits over 7 1/3 innings and struck out 11, beating the Horned Frogs for the second time in seven days at the College World Series.

What followed was the first of two 23-game win streaks that set and matched a team record. Catch all the excitment of the best 2 out of 3 series on your home for LSU Sports-Tiger radioWWL. That's the side of the plate from where the LSU baseball player had a late-season surge in production toward the end of his sophomore year.

They did all of their scoring against national wins leader Jake Thompson (14-1).

Austin Langworthy doubled and scored on a fielder's choice in the second inning, and Christian Hicks added an RBI double in the fifth.
