The College World Series are thoroughly underway in Omaha, and the group of eight’s second team has been eliminated. Texas A&M’s postseason hopes are over after a 4-1 loss to TCU.
No. 6 overall national seed TCU faced down Texas A&M in the early session, 4-1, and the Aggies end a rather amazing tournament run that began with them upending the Houston regional hosts. They went on to host lovable underdogs Davidson in the College Station super, but the Wildcats had nothing to offer in the way of wins.
So. With LSU trailing 4-3 but nibbling at the tail, Florida State committed three heinous blunders on the same play that plated the Tigers the tying run. They would go on to score the winning run in that inning, and holy hell, it was the end of day. How do you even score this play?
It’s important to remember that these teams don’t ever really meet during the regular season even though they should because this game was chaos and historic baseball wrapped into one. Let them ever play at a neutral site, for no other reason than to provide the nastiest baseball we’ve ever seen.
And oh yeah, LSU trailed by a run as late as the bottom of the eighth. The Tigers knocked in two balls to pull ahead of Florida State despite that, so they are in business or whatever.
That’s absolutely filthy stuff from LSU’s first baseman, and a testament to these Tigers’ severe commitment to containing their opponents’ hits within the lap of Omaha’s big bad stadium. Not many can hit out of that ballpark.
