The LSU Tigers are 1 Win Away From a Return to Omaha after a Monster Night at The Box

Saturday was a day filled with weather delays that prevented LSU and Kentucky from getting the Baton Rouge Super Regional underway. The only thing is there was actually no weather happening from preventing the game from starting only a threat of weather that had a 2pm start pushed back to a 7pm start time , that was then pushed to 8pm and then again 9pm. Many fans were frustrated and left to go home after multiple delays.



It seems most of those fans returned for the 9pm start time because Alex Box was rocking and packed. It seems most of the electricity that was expected during the day was channeled into the LSU bats as they haywire from start to finish.



In the bottom of the 1st Tre Morgan homered for the first of two blasts on the night to left to give LSU A 1-0 lead. After a scoreless 2nd inning the Tigers came out strong in the 3rd with Crews getting a single and Tommy White brought him home on a towering homer to left field. Tre Morgan came up next and blasted his second homer of the night to right field giving the Tigers a 4-0 lead. The tigers lone run in the 4th came of a Gavin Dugas homerun to left center.



The Tigers then UNLOADED in the 5th inning scoring 6 runs to make it 11-0 with Josh Pearson getting things started with a homer to right field. Then Crews reached on a throwing error by 3b,White singled to left field ; Crews advanced to second. Morgan then singled through the left side with White advancing to second and Crews scored. Jobert then was hit by a pitch, with Travinski advancing to second and Morgan advanced to third; Tommy White scored. Then a wild pitch moved all the runners with Jobert advancing to second on a wild pitch; Travinski advanced to third and Morgan scored. The Tigers were not done yet as Jordan Thompson singled to left field with Jobert and Travinski scoring.



LSU added one more run in the 6th inning when Tommy White hit his second homer of the night to to left field to make it 12-0. In the 7th Jobert hit a double and LSU put the speedy Paxton Kling in to pinch run. He scored on a Jordan Thompson single through the right side. Then a pop fly by Dylan Crews brought home Thompson for the final run of the night giving the Tigers as 14-0 lead.




On the night, Paul Skenes did Paul Skenes things in his final home game in Alex Box as he struck out 9 in 7.2 innings with his fastball living in the 100-102mph range. Jay Johnson with the classy move to pull Skenes with 1 out left to go in the 8th inning and let him get the standing ovation from a lively crowd at the box and appreciation for the 1 year we were blessed to have the super star pitcher. Also worth note, Dylan Crews will play his final game in Alex Box Stadium. Gentlemen, we salute you.




Tune in tonight at 5:00 CT on ESPN2 as the Tigers attempt to punch their ticket to Omaha as Ty Floyd likely is the one to take the mound. The weather for that time could lead to a similar situation as yesterday so beware there may be delays.
