Faedo fabulous again, Florida beats TCU to go to CWS finals

Caleb Gilbert held the top-seeded Beavers to two hits in 7 1/3 innings, Michael Papierski homered from both sides of the plate and LSU won 6-1 on Saturday - a day after beating the Beavers 3-1.

The teams met again Saturday night, with the victor advancing to the best-ofthree finals starting Monday against LSU, which advanced after beating Oregon State 6-1 on Saturday afternoon. In three starts, Poche', Lange and Gilbert combined to go 3-0, 1.99 with 19 strikeouts, 11 hits and seven walks in 22.2 innings. Sean Wymer struck out national player of the year Brendan McKay in two key situations while pitching 41/3 innings of shutout relief, and TCU beat Louisville in an elimination game. LSU closer Zach Hess then relieved Gilbert and got the final five outs.

LSU started their scoring punch in the second inning as two runners got on base via a walk and double to set the stage for catcher Michael Papierski.

Oregon State third baseman Michael Gretler got that run back with a solo home run in the seventh that chased Gilbert from the game.

"He's hit a lot of big home runs left-handed", LSU coach Paul Mainieri said. Friday's loss ended a 23-game winning streak for the Beavers and was the first time this season they lost a game started by pitcher Jake Thompson.

LSU sixth inning - With one out, Jordan hit a home run over the leftfield fence. It was the first time in TD Ameritrade Park history that a team has hit back-to-back home runs.

Game time for Saturday's LSU/Oregon State game is dependent on the result of Friday evening's Florida/TCU game. "If you're going to hide who you're starting and try to like about it, that means, I don't want to say you're scared, but that means you're anxious about us'". Drew Carlton entered with a runner on second in the eighth inning and allowed a walk to Jordan before striking out Papierski and getting Slaughter to ground out to end the inning.

Nothing Louisiana State encounters in the College World Series championship series is likely to be more daunting than the task the Tigers had to complete to get there. In a season where many counted them out early on, the Seminoles fought through adversity and clinched a seventh ACC championship, 40 consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance and 22 College World Series appearance.

Iran's last foreign missile strike is believed to have been carried out in April 2001, targeting an exiled Iranian group in Iraq . This month, an American F-15E shot down an Iranian-made drone after it attacked American fighters in southeastern Syria .

LSU earned its way into the final round with a convincing 6-1 victory over the Oregon State Beavers Saturday.

The moment that will long be remembered if the Beavers fail to advance on Saturday will be a missed call by the umpires with OSU batting in the third inning of Friday's game. But we didn't win it out here either.

This version corrects to Caleb Gilbert holding No. 1 national seed Oregon State to two hits, not LSU.

Mainieri said LSU kept the Beaver offense off-balance in large part because they retired Nos. Freeman borrowed a teammate's bat and went 1 for 4 with a double. "I put a good swing on a couple of fastballs today, and the wind helped out a little bit".

LSU's Robertson dyed his brown hair blond after a 13-1 loss to Oregon State last Monday.

The NCAA leader in strikeouts stymied the Horned Frogs again for the second time in a week, leaving TCU one victory away from reaching the finals of CWS for the second year in a row.

The Tigers added to their lead in the bottom half of the third inning, when Antoine Duplantis singled home Kramer Robertson, to widen their advantage to 4-0.

O'Sullivan mentioned relievers like freshman Sam Dyson and sophomore closer Michael Byrne as options for Tuesday, and while he said Faedo, the 18th-overall pick in the 2017 Major League Baseball draft, is probably off limits in game three, he didn't slam the door completely.
