Poche' sets LSU wins mark, knocks Florida State out of CWS

After Watson stole second, Deichmann scored on a single by Josh Smith.

Michael Papierski reached on a slow chop through the middle that FSU second baseman Matt Henderson got to but bobbled for an error.

LSU added a pair of insurance runs in the top of the ninth inning on a Antoine Duplantis fielder's choce and a Zach Watson RBI double. Jackson Lueck drilled a double just inside the left-field line, and Nieporte lifted a fly ball to left for a sacrifice fly. Robertson went to third on a sacrifice bunt by Freeman. I wish it wouldn't, because what he's done in his career at Florida State is very rare.

Nieporte blasted a solo home run in his final at-bat as a Seminole, and sophomore Cal Raleigh followed that up with another solo home run. Slaughter did just that, driving a three-run homer to left.

The LSU Tigers will get another crack at Oregon State, and then maybe another crack.

Neither team could push across a run against Poche' nor Florida State reliever Andrew Karp until the sixth when the Seminoles added an unearned run to trail 5-2.

Last 10 games: LSU: 9-1.

Singer hummed along through six innings, striking out eight, walking none and limiting the Cardinals to three singles. He gave up a solo homer to Mendoza in the second and an unearned run in the sixth. Florida State: Won 1.

None of the left-hander's 39 victories could compare to the one he had in front of 22,872 fans at TD Ameritrade Park Omaha. The victory was also the 12th of the season for Poche. "I wish I could tell you it was a stroke of genius, but it really was we thought we needed to be as good offensively as we could against LSU", Casey said. "This record, it's definitely not an individual award". I had guys behind me like Kramer and Alex Bregman. "Having all those guys behind me over the course of my career making play after play, picking me up on defense and scoring runs in the games I throw, I couldn't have done it without those guys".

Slaughter returned to the starting lineup at first base.

LSU was record second, third or fourth in the major polls at the end of the regular season. Both Freeman and Deichmann had doubles in the Tigers' five-run second.

LSU's Jake Slaughter watches his three-run home run during the second inning of the team's NCAA College World Series baseball game against Florida State in Omaha, Neb., Wednesday, June 21, 2017. "He's got something else inside him that makes him special, and there's a reason he's won more games than anyone else to put on this jersey".

LSU senior pitcher Jared Poché pitched his way into Tiger immortality on Wednesday night, becoming the all-time winningest pitcher at LSU, earning the 7-4 win over Florida State in the College World Series.

The surge stopped there as the Seminoles managed only a walk against LSU closer Zack Hess. In 2010, Florida State's Sherman Johnson and Mike McGee hit consecutive homers against TCU.LSU is 50-18. LSU must beat Oregon State Friday and Saturday to advance to the College World Series championship best two out of three.

Florida State (46-23) will go home without a national title for a 22nd time, and 16th under Mike Martin, who completed his 38th year as coach.

"He put the team on his shoulders and carried us to the promised land", LSU coach Paul Mainieri said. We love to play here.
