Poche' sets LSU wins mark, ousts Florida State

Steven Branscombe-USA TODAY Sports

Oregon State: The Beavers have not settled on a starter for Friday's bracket final game against LSU.

Slaughter returned to the starting lineup at first base.

"Jared was rough on us", Florida State coach Mike Martin Sr. said. Slaughter hit a three-run homer over the leftfield fence.

"He pitched as hard as he could", Martin said.

"You see 84 from the left side, next thing he comes in 97 from the right side", Poche' said.

A flag-straightening breeze knocked over a tall protective screen during LSU's batting practice, and affected fly balls throughout the night.

Florida entered the College World Series a year ago with eight players taken in the first 10 rounds of the 2016 Major League Baseball draft and was an overwhelming favorite to win its first national title. Hank Trulock finished the game at second. "Halfway through the year, the team had to look itself in the mirror". All 38 of his teams have made the NCAA Tournament.


LSU shortstop Kramer Robertson, who died his hair yellow, got his first hit of the CWS in the 9th inning. The Tigers were 4-for-14 with runners in scoring position.Florida State only had three runners get past first base - Mendoza in the fifth, Lucek in the sixth and pinch-runner J.C. Flowers in the ninth. Florida State: 8-2.

Another rally appeared possible at times Wednesday. Florida State: Won 1. A ball that seemed like a routine fly ball off the bat carried into the bleachers for a homer to cut the Tigers' lead to 5-1. A run scored on the play, but it was the only one of the frame.

"I guess I was getting a little bit exhausted", Singer said. No program has as many CWS appearances without winning the championship.

With two outs and Poche headed toward another breezy inning, the FSU freshman connected with a 2-and-2 pitch and lofted it into the - at that point - hitter-friendly wind headed toward left field. Five other Tigers pitchers won two games in the College World Series - Trey Hodges in 2000, Ed Yarnall in 1996, Mike Sirotka in 1993, Chad Ogea in 1991 and Gregg Patterson in 1987.Hess picked up his third save of the season - two coming against Florida State in the CWS.

"This was a special, special team. But I didn't say anything to him until after the game.". "I don't think I've ever had a more competitive team". Jordan drew two walks and drove in a run with a safety squeeze bunt.Three Tigers had sacrifice bunts - Jordan, Smith and Freeman.Florida State reliever Andrew Karp did not allow a run in 5.1 innings. Henderson needed assistance to leave the field, putting little weight on his left foot. Larnach went 2-for-3 with two walks and three RBIs, while Malone went 1-for-3 with two walks and two runs.

There had never been consecutive home runs in 316 games at TD Ameritrade Park until Nieporte and Cal Raleigh went deep to start the ninth inning. "It was probably the best it's been all season", Poche' said.

Coach Paul Mainieri's comments: "It's exciting to know that we get to stay in Omaha for a couple of more days". "He's such a competitor and he does it night in and night out, he gives you everything he has when he goes out there and any time you have Jared Poche out there on the mound, you have a lot of confidence you're going to win the game".
