LSU beats Oregon State, ending Beavers' 23-game win streak

LSU beats Oregon State, ending Beavers' 23-game win streak”

LSU had on Saturday done the improbable, beating Oregon State, the No. 1 national seed, for the second straight day to advance to the College World Series finals out of the losers' bracket.

The Tigers will now await the victor of Saturday's TCU-Florida grudge match to find out who they'll face in the best-of-three finals set to start Monday night.

"Definitely feels good to get this win and go to the College World Series finals", Papierski said.

Seven of Papierski's 11 home runs have come in the team's 20-1 stretch that has the Tigers in the College World Series finals.

Gilbert took control of the game early on, setting the top of Oregon State's lineup in order with a pair of strikeouts in the first inning. He threw 7.1 innings, striking out seven batters and limiting Oregon State to one run on two hits and a walk. "That pitch I hit foul and then he hung me a slider or curve ball and I got it down the line". "But a couple of balls off and just really taking advantage of it, and taking advantage of them being so patient". "I had to get first-pitch strikes in there, and when I got ahead I wanted to make them pay for it".

OSU's plate discipline is a defining characteristic of its offense, so the Beavers looked out of sorts when their patience went unrewarded. Besides Papierski's two blasts, Jordan added his first in the CWS as part of an efficient 8-hit attack.

Papierski then homered from the right side of the plate in the bottom half of the inning to extend the lead to five runs. TCU's Bryan Holaday hit two homers against UCLA in 2010.

His pitching was backed by the hitting of Papierski who hit two home runs in the game and became the first player to hit two home runs in a game since the CWS moved to TD Ameritrade.

But while Fehmel was immaculate five days earlier, he exited his second College World Series start after 2 1/3 innings with a 4-0 deficit.

That's true because LSU kept pecking away once it got a cozy early lead, with senior Kramer Robertson finally finding his stroke with three hits, with Antoine Duplantis flashing the clutch swing that made him so risky all season and with Beau Jordan adding some power to his pesky repertoire. He allowed a single to Steven Kwan and a walk to Nick Madrigal to start the ninth. "It was Caleb Gilbert".

Saturday, LSU starter Caleb Gilbert pitched a career high 7.1 innings, allowing Oregon State two hits and one run. They went the first 17 innings Friday and today without having a leadoff batter reach base.

"I think everybody's appreciation of Pap grows when he keeps hitting home runs", Mainieri said. LSU, seeking a seventh national title, was seeded fourth in the 64-team NCAA field; TCU, playing in Omaha for the fourth straight year, is the No. 6 seed. We thought they had a great team, I've said that every step of the way. His three-run homer got us going today. And the silver lining of the loser's bracket is you get to play more games. The whole team played well. "But that's why you have to play the games and our kids embraced the challenge". Of course, they saw 121 pitches in the game, and only a handful of them were called strikes that were so far outside the zone as to be unhittable. "We played at home through the regionals, we played at home through the supers and when you come here, you're not dealing with just a home crowd anymore".
