Back home in Omaha: LSU Batters State, 14-4

LSU, which defeated Mississippi State, 4-3, late Saturday, swept Mississippi State (40-27) two games to none in the best-of-three Super Regional. The Tigers added additional insurance with five runs in the top of the ninth. LSU will open CWS play Saturday or Sunday against Florida State.

MSU chased LSU starter Jared Poche' with four runs in the third inning. In the fifth, LSU had three hits and three walks, including a two-run double by Robertson, who was 3-for-5 with three runs and two RBIs. Freeman scored on a single by Greg Deichmann.

Robertson finished with two RBI and three runs scored.

Working with a 1-0 lead, 6-foot-3 State lefty Konnor Pilkington worked around two two-out walks in the bottom of the second inning, but was able to get Michael Papierski to roll into a fielder's choice and end the inning.

Papierski came up with the bases loaded on Sunday and that's when Mainieri compared the anticipation of his at bat to those of Blake Dean in 2008 when he hit 20 home runs, slugged.665 and had 73 RBI. Papierski and Robertson scored three runs. Then, Poche' issued three straight walks to load the bases and the improbable occurred as Paul Manieri hooked Poche' in favor of Caleb Gilbert. Cannizaro said. "They're a program that's accustomed to going there".

CHANGING ARMS: Mississippi State sent eight pitchers to the mound during the game. He pitched five and two-thirds shutout innings, allowing no runs on two hits, striking out six.

"The team got better".

When the game resumed at 1:23 a.m., Duplantis drove in two runs with a single just in front of the right fielder that scored Freeman and Robertson for a 14-4 lead.

After the start of the game was delayed by rain and lightning from 8 8:36 p.m., Robertson singled at 8:37 p.m. off State starter Jacob Billingsley.

Antoine Duplantis shut the door with a single to right field to plate Robertson and Freeman, putting LSU ahead 14-4, but not before the rains came down one last time and put Alex Box Stadium into a delay.

Alas, that wasn't the last time the rain held things up.

Enter four freshmen: Pitchers Eric Walker and Zack Hess, as well as centerfielder Zach Watson and third baseman Josh Smith. Jolly then balked in a run for a 3-0 deficit and was replaced by Barlow Freeman, who got State out of the inning. Jolly ran into trouble in the second inning, however, as he walked Papierski to start the inning. Harrison Bragg's two-run homer made it 3-2 LSU.

LSU's Kramer Robertson (3) is greeted by Greg Deichmann (7) after scoring during the first inning of an NCAA college baseball tournament super regional game against Mississippi State in Baton Rouge, La., Sunday, June 11, 2017. Caleb Gilbert entered for the Tigers and allowed RBI singles by Jake Mangum and Elijah MacNamee before getting out of the jam trailing 4-3.

It was the second straight rugged outing for Poché, who both times was trying to tie the school record for victories. "I think that speaks volumes to our team and speaks volumes to the message that coach likes to portray to us, that no matter how much we're down, no matter how often we're down, that we've always got a chance to battle back".

He got the win while allowing just the two hits in 5.2 innings with six strike outs and only one walk.

"If I went home I was still going to watch the game", he said.
