Poche' sets LSU wins mark, knocks Florida State out of CWS

Poche' sets LSU wins mark, knocks Florida State out of CWS

Instead, the Lutcher, La., native wanted one last hurrah.

Slaughter was on the bench for LSU's first two games in Omaha, entering later in each game - but just like opening day, he made the most of his first start at the CWS. LSU must beat the Beavers twice to advance to the best-of-three CWS Final series. Nieporte and Cal Raleigh crushed home runs to start the final inning, cutting the margin to 7-4. He certainly didn't want that to be his lasting legacy. Martin has never won fewer than 41 games in a season since becoming FSU's head coach in 1980.

Poche', who broke a tie with Scott Schultz to become LSU's career wins leader, threw eight innings, allowing only four runs (three earned) on seven hits with two walks and four strikeouts.

LSU's Jared Poche had a night to remember in Omaha.

His career numbers immediately jump off the page: A 39-12 record with a 3.07 ERA. "This record, it's definitely not an individual award. I couldn't have done it without those guys". "Obviously, slow the heart rate down and then just pitching to your strengths and hitting to your strengths and doing what you've always done".

"He was able to throw all of his pitches with command".

"It feels like we gave it everything we had, and it wasn't meant to be", Martin said. "You can't leave pitches where they were left, but that happens". And he had confidence as the game went on.

"I thought maybe I'd got enough of it, but I didn't", Nieporte said.

"Jake has played a lot this year and it's the one spot in our order that has fluidity", Mainieri said. "In my opinion, we have the best offense in the country, the mindset was to put up zeros and let those guys chip away", Karp said.

There were 1,221 days between the first career start for Poche' - a six-inning, scoreless gem against Grambling that was a good sign of what was to come for the freshman - and his clutch, record-setting start in Omaha. He retired the first five FSU hitters he faced, recording a pair of strikeouts in the first inning on curveballs. That brought up Slaughter, making his first CWS start, and on a 0-and-1 fastball he lofted a drive that crawled over the yellow line on the outfield wall for a three-run home run and a 5-0 Tigers lead.

FSU threatened in the fifth inning when Mendoza and Henderson led off the inning with singles. The lefty was lifted from the contest at that point, but what an outing he had against one of the nation's best. Jared was the key to the game.

"We learned so much a year ago, going two and out, and now winning the first two games, we've learned a lot", Singer said.

LSU (50-18) advanced to take on No. 1 Oregon State, which beat the Tigers 13-1 on Monday.

Last 10 games: LSU: 9-1. We love to play here. Then, we had the big inning. "I get to say I was a part of it for the rest of my life, get to tell my kids that Jared Poche is the all-time winningest pitcher in LSU history and I was on the field for that game, that's pretty exciting stuff". He gave up a solo homer to Mendoza in the second and an unearned run in the sixth.

Indeed, he was, as he has been so many times throughout his career.

Team ERA: LSU: 3.66. Does that keep them from being talked about as great coaches of all time?

Slaughter returned to the starting lineup at first base.

"The first time I saw him on the mound, though, I knew he was the real deal and he had something special", he continued. He's got something else inside him that makes him special, and there's a reason that he's won more games than anyone else to put on this jersey. "It's been an honor to be his teammate, and I'm going to be forever thankful for that".

The team caught fire in late May, winning the conference tournament as the eighth seed.
