The Twins defeat the Rangers 4-3. The Rangers welcome the Dodgers tonight in Arlington at 7:05.
It seems as if LSU starting pitcher Jared Poche returned to the Jared Poche that struggled in the home stretch of the regular season. After a stellar start against ULL last weekend, Poche and the Tigers unraveled as LSU fell to TCU 10-3 in the College World Series opener. Poche breezed through the first three innings, striking out the first three batters he faced! But, it was a different game after. In the 4th inning, Poche airmailed back to back throws to first baseman Chris Chinea, which led to two runs crossing home in the 4th. The Tigers had a season high 4 errors this game. Poche was out after 4 1/3 innings. Next inning, four more runs crossed home for TCU. After the Horned Frogs posted four more in the seventh, to make the game out of reach for LSU, Jared Foster hit a solo shot in the 8th. LSU’s collective backs are up against the wall, if they lose again on Tuesday, their season is over. They’ll either play either Cal State Fullerton or Vandy on Tuesday afternoon, the game will be on 1130 The Tiger.
Speaking of Vandy and Cal State Fullerton, they weren’t able to finish their game yesterday because of showers in Omaha. Cal State Fullerton currently holds a 3-0 lead over Vandy in the 6th inning. The game will continue this morning at 11.
The Hogs fell on Saturday to Virginia, they face Miami in an elimination game this afternoon at 2!
