LSU Wins Super Regional — Headed To Omaha For College World Series
Well it is official. The LSU Tigers are headed back to Omaha and will be one of the eight teams in the College World Series. The Tigers beat the Ragin' Cajuns of Louisiana-Lafayette tonight 6-3 to advance to Omaha.
It was a really entertaining series to watch this weekend! Two Louisiana based baseball teams who's campuses are nor more than 50 miles apart from each other go at it for a chance to go to the big show.
Last night, the Cajuns tied up the ballgame 3-3 in the top of the 9th inning with a home run. Then LSU stepped up to bat and Chris Sciambra hit a walk off solo home run in the bottom of the 9th to win it for LSU.
Tonight was a pitching duel between the Cajun's and Lake Charles Native Gunner Leger on the mound against LSU's Jared Poche'. It came down to Leger throwing one pitch that he shouldn't have and LSU' Kade Scivicque hit a deep home run off the scoreboard to break the ice for the Tigers in the 7th inning.
The Tigers posted 5 more runs and then here came the Cajuns. The Cajuns got a triple from Lake Charles native and former Barbe Buc Kennon Fontenot. But LSU pitching was to much and the Tigers closed it out winning 6-3 to win the best two out of three game series 2-0.
Now the LSU Baseball team has earned themselves a trip to the College World Series in Omaha, Nebraska! The Tigers are 53-10 on the year and will face either TCU or Texas A&M next Sunday, June 14th in the opening round of their bracket.
