Poche' sets LSU wins mark, knocks out Florida State

Poche' sets LSU wins mark, knocks out Florida State

"We played with love and compassion for one another". If TCU defeats Florida on Friday, LSU and Oregon State will play at 2 p.m.; if Florida wins and eliminates TCU, the Tigers and Beavers will play at 7 p.m. "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. Obviously, a phenomenal ballgame to watch.

"I could not see the ball, but I should've asked for a review (on Kwan's foul ball)", Oregon State manager Pat Casey said.

LSU ace Alex Lange put the Tigers in this position. For a team that has lost only four times all season, it's hard to imagine how anyone is going to beat them in two straight days. He threw 115 pitches with 69 for strikes.

"That's fine", Robertson said of being a big underdog.

"Fastball command was really good and my slider had a lot of sharp break to it", Hess said. The victor moves on to the National Championship.

Just forget that Friday happened.

Junior Alex Lange displayed why he was a first round pick in the 2017 Major League Baseball draft in Friday's 3-1 victory against Oregon State.

Poche' improved to 12-3 on the year despite falling short in his effort for a complete game. Oregon State will go with right-hander Drew Rasmussen, drafted No. 31 overall by Tampa Bay after he returned from an elbow injury in late April. Prior to the 2017 CWS, the only two meetings between the teams came at the 2012 NCAA Baton Rouge Regional, where the Tigers posted wins over the Beavers by scores of 7-1 in the regional semifinal and 6-5 (10 innings) in the regional final.

"It feels like we gave it everything we had, and it wasn't meant to be", Martin said. "I don't think I've ever had a more competitive team". If we're fortunate enough to make the championship series, he's going to have to be ready to go every day. Martin has never won fewer than 41 games in a season since becoming FSU's head coach in 1980. He took the loss to fall to 14-1.

Normally, you'd say that is not going to get the job done, but it has to this point with the help of the bottom of the order. "First loss of the year".

Greg Deichmann stroked a leadoff double and Watson followed with a seeing-eye single, putting runners on the corners with no outs.

LSU's Josh Smith (4) reacts as he runs to first base after hitting an RBI single during the second inning of an NCAA College World Series baseball game against the OR in Omaha, Neb., Friday, June 23, 2017.

LSU beat them twice, the second time in 11 innings. He retired 13 of the next 15 batters he faced, navigating the risky top of the OSU batting order again in the 5th with no damage done. He struck out five and walked one.

Steven Kwan hit a ball that was fair off the top of the wall below the left-field foul pole - but the ball was ruled foul. ESPN replays clearly showed the ball hit the padding.

"Before things got worse, Lange recovered by striking out KJ Harrison to leave the bases loaded, the 20th empty at-bat by a foe vs. him with the bags full this season". Instead, Kwan popped up in shallow center field for an out.

It was LSU's first two-hitter in its College World Series history. He was near tears as he came off the mound.

Yet, many FSU fans were the first ones to be apologists for Bowden - myself included - talking about how other teams "wish" they could have winning records like the Seminoles and enjoy the same (wait for it) consistency. I had a sense of calmness about me this morning when I woke up and getting to the yard.

"Am I disappointed?" he said. "I was calm and relaxed".
