LSU rallies to beat Florida State in opening round of the CWS

LSU rallies to beat Florida State in opening round of the CWS

It was the 22nd straight victory for No. 1 national seed OSU (55-4), which will continue CWS play at 4:05 p.m. Monday against fourth-seeded LSU (49-17).

0REGON STATE RALLIES: Adley Rutschman had a tiebreaking single in the eighth, Jake Mulholland pitched 41/3 innings of no-hit relief and Oregon State rallied past Cal State Fullerton 6-5. It's also LSU's 17th straight win.

Alex Lange, the Cubs' second first-round pick, will start Louisiana State first-round game Saturday night against Florida State at Ameritrade Park.

For a moment there, one may have thought LSU coach Paul Mainieri was suffering a senior moment when he replaced a rolling Jared Poche in the ninth inning Saturday night. "It seems like every player in their lineup was chosen in the draft, and they have a tremendous pitching staff with a sub-2.00 ERA". I don't think there's any pressure on us going into Monday.

Credit LSU for staying after it, but that comes as no surprise for a team that hasn't lost since May 9. "That's even when we used to play in Little League, where the backstop was a long way away", Martin said. Walker has been brilliant in his two postseason starts, defeating Arkansas in the SEC Tournament final and earning a win over Rice in the NCAA Regional final.

On the screen was his outing from two weeks earlier, when the freshman right-hander took a no-hitter until two outs in the eighth inning against Auburn.

LSU is hitting.294 as a team this season with 62 homers and 74 steals in 100 attempts. He got only two batters out, walked four and threw 40 pitches, including 13 to KJ Harrison during an at-bat that ended with a bases-loaded walk. Second baseman Cole Freeman delivered an one-out single, and he scored from first base when leftfielder Antoine Duplantis singled (following a short delay to remove a beach ball from right field), and Florida State rightfielder Steven Wells committed two errors after attempting to field the ball. The Tigers had a runner at 1st when Greg Deichmann struck out swinging but reached 1st when the ball got away from the catcher. Eric Walker (8-1) will start for LSU against Bryce Fehmel (5-2).

The Tigers got within 3-2 in the bottom of the inning when Freeman stole second with two outs and Duplantis punched a line drive over the infield to plate the run. The Beavers are led at the plate by sophomore infielder Nick Madrigal, who is batting.385 with 19 doubles, two triples, four homers and 37 RBI. Junior third baseman Taylor Bryant followed that up two pitches later with a base hit up the middle.

Until then, Deichmann was 0-for-3 with a pair of strikeouts vs. the left-handed Holton. In the evening game starting at 6 p.m. (CT), No. 6 national seed TCU (47-16) will be squaring off against No. 3 national seed Florida (47-18).

LSU has the highest winning percentage in NCAA Tournament history with a 149-58 (.720) record; the Tigers are competing in the tournament for the 30th time.

Before head coach, Dan McDonnell arrived on campus, U of L had never been to the college world series.

Instead, Walls, FSU's leadoff hitter, is focused on helping the Seminoles extend their season against Cal State Fullerton on Monday. "I don't know. But it's just one of those freak plays I've never seen in baseball, honestly".

Game 2 was eerily similar to Game 1 at the 2017 College World Series.
