LSU, Florida advance to finals

Game 2 of the best two-of-three championship series is set for 7 p.m. CT on Tuesday, and Game 3, if necessary, will start at 7 p.m. CT on Wednesday.

Mainieri said he challenged his team to make Oregon State pay. Then they did in dominating fashion. While I expect it to be a low scoring series, I predict the Tigers will win the 2017 National Championship in three games. In the second game though, the Beavers showed Vanderbilt why they were number one by beating them 9-2 to move on after a 2-0 series win.

Gilbert allowed only an infield single and walk before Michael Gretler homered in the seventh. Florida is batting.259 on the season, averaging 5.3 runs per game and has hit 53 homers in 69 games.

OMAHA-On Saturday night, Louisiana State head coach Paul Mainieri found himself doing something he never does-and won't do again anytime soon.

Eventually, thanks to a core of returning vets who delayed entering the draft for a year, LSU got its act together and now has won 20 of 21 games.

Papierski, a junior from Lemont, Illinois, also became the first LSU player to home from both sides of the plate since Todd Linden at Alabama in 2001. But that wasn't the highlight of the game.

Caleb Gilbert solved the Oregon State riddle. Designated hitter Christian Hicks had two hits and an RBI. He picked off Ryan Merrill at first in the fourth inning and retired nine of the next 10 batters.

"It's a tough group to lose, but we've lost players before", Schlossnagle said. "We didn't put any pressure on them, and it was just an accumulation of all that stuff".

To get to the best-of-three finals starting Monday night, LSU (52-18) beat an Oregon State team, which had the highest winning percentage of any program in four decades, twice in two days.

Details about the molestation came to light June 8 in a story published by The Oregonian/OregonLive.

Fehmel made his third postseason start since the rotation was adjusted to account for the loss of Heimlich. The closest team behind the Beavers?

A season for the ages came to an unceremonious end amid the thunderous chants of "L-S-U". "Both of us want to take that trophy home with us". "We trust our guys and we manage the strike zone very well and we command the strike zone very well, so to see that kind of be rearranged on a particular day... we'll know more when we go back and review the tape".

LSU last won the national championship in 2009. Miami in 1999 is the only No. 1 seed to go all the way; that was the first year of this CWS format.

Fehmel was a surprise starter. 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.

Remember previous year when powerhouses such as LSU, Texas A&M, Mississippi State and Louisville didn't even get to play at TD Ameritrade Park? He went 3 for 3 and reached on a walk. TCU has made it to Omaha four straight years, and five overall, and is yet to reach the finals. Brady Singer, who will start for Florida tonight, was overwhelming in one of them, throwing a complete game while allowing one run, six hits, and no walks in a 3-1 win.

After a CWS-opening 5-4 win over Florida State on June 17, the Tigers suffered their first loss since May 9. "The game before has no bearing on today's game". "You just hope the more times you come out here, you get more relaxed".

Faedo (9-2) struck out 11, just as he did last Sunday in a 3-0 win against the Horned Frogs.

P Michael Byrne took over on the mound for Faedo halfway through the eighth inning.

“I had a feeling early on if we stayed healthy that we had the ingredients to be successful out here, ” Gators coach Kevin OSullivan said. "I can't think of one time this year we've had to stop practice and. get on them about not practicing hard this spring". But the Beavers put together a season that should be talked about as one of the all-time best teams no matter what. "We've been in this situation before, and I tried to bear down with every pitch I threw". Gator runs in the second, fifth and seventh innings gave Florida and Faedo enough of a cushion to end TCU's 2017 campaign. Zach Humphreys promptly singled, but Byrne struck out the unsafe Evan Skoug and retired cleanup hitter Cam Warner on a fly ball.

"Just like SEC weekend, just more at stake", Tigers' senior shortstop Kramer Robertson said. "I had to get Cam out".
