CWS: LSU scores twice in the eighth to beat Florida State

18 Junio 2017, 03:41 | Gerardo Tarin

After Florida won Game 1, Dyson fired two ideal innings in Wake Forest's Game 2 victory, which began Sunday afternoon but didn't wrap until Monday because of a storm that dumped almost three inches of rain on the field. Saturday's second game features No. 4 national seed LSU (48-17) against Florida St. (45-21), and is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. (CT).

Florida State is the only team on its side of the bracket that doesn't have a national title - LSU has six, Cal State-Fullerton four and Oregon State two. We lost once again, like Dan (McDonnell, Louisville head coach) just said, $11 million worth of signing bonuses off our club. When I grew up, and I've seen some insane things, but I never saw a guy score from first base on a strikeout.

Eastman, who was spectacular in a seven-inning start in the super regional-clinching win over Long Beach State last Sunday, couldn't find the strike zone.

The Seminoles led the Tigers 4-3 entering the bottom of the insane eighth. Freeman went to second on a single by Duplantis. Freeman stole second and scored on a single by Duplantis.

Antoine Duplantis then singled to right, and that same right fielder who'd deftly fielded the inflatable ball proved unable to handle the smaller leather one. "But I guess God had a better plan and wanted it to happen in Omaha". Luckily (Wells) bobbled the ball. Duplantis advanced to third on that, the third error of the play for Florida State. "Things kept happening. I just kept running".

"It's a great feeling anytime you get the go-ahead run", Deichmann said.

What got Dyson there was a fastball that touched the upper 90s, a dominating pitch that was a big reason why he didn't allow a regular-season earned run during his final year at Braden River. We've won a lot of tough games - a lot of ugly wins. We are not going to be satisfied unless we get it done. They pitched better than us. In the third, Duplantis drove home Freeman with a two-out single. Lange is in second place on LSU's career strikeouts list with 390, trailing only Scott Schultz (409 Ks, 1992-05).

"It's unbelievable", Dyson said from Nebraska following Friday evening's practice. Since then, his strikeout total's gone up to 390, putting him just 19 short of tying the all-time LSU record. "Obviously, I've been thinking about it all year and been hoping that it would obviously happen the last two weeks. I don't think I've ever been a part of something like that before". That's commitment to a program and a university, and both embody what LSU Baseball is all about. "He's not going to flash a 94 or 95 or that snapping curveball or phenomenal change up, he's just a victor". The right-hander walked Taylor Walls before striking out red-hot Dylan Busby to end the game. It was the 15th dinger of the season for Busby. "Slow the game down". Duplantis drew a two-out walk against lefthander Tyler Holton, bringing Greg Deichmann to the plate. The next throw, to home, was in time, but the ball popped out of catcher Cal Raleigh's glove.

When the dust settled, the score was tied 4-4 and Duplantis was standing on third. Walls also scored three of the four runs the Seminoles scored.

Deichmann got a late start in legging out the swinging-strike but beat the rap on the third out.

When he walked in the fifth inning, Walls broke the Florida State record by reaching base on 14 straight plate appearances.

"I thought Hess was ready to go against Busby, and that's the way it worked", Mainieri said.

Mike Papierski answered by blasting Holton's first offering of the bottom of that frame into the left-field seats for his 9th home run.

"Ever since the roster limits and the change in the bats, I think you have to have guys that can run and some athletes out there", Mainieri said. A really good offensive team. "We were able to take advantage of it".
