"I think that just goes back to the type of athletes we have on this team", Duplantis said. Out of the teams to make it this far, five of them are National Seeds. In the bottom half of the inning FSU made a crucial mistake.

Florida State fifth inning - Walls walked.

While LSU gained the momentum with that electrifying play in the bottom of the first, the rest of the night would be a see-saw affair between the two teams.

"Seabold was battling, but he was at 97 pitches". He has 84 strikeouts in 68 2/3 innings to go along with a 1.83 ERA. Martin has been a part of all but four, including 16 as the head coach. "So you're saying we have a chance?" Obviously, it didn't work. Despite an early lead, fielding errors haunted the Seminoles throughout during a 5-4 setback to LSU at TD Ameritrade Park. "If he doesn't pitch well, it will only be because Oregon State got to him". We have a lot of respect for (OSU) Coach (Pat) Casey and his staff, and I expect that this game will be a complete blast.

Holton (10-3) was charged with the loss, as he surrendered five runs - three earned-on eight hits with two walks and five strikeouts.

This year's College World Series appearance is the 22nd for FSU and unless the Seminoles are able to win four straight, they'll maintain the record for most CWS showings without a title.

On the other hand, Florida State will look to shock the LSU pitching a bit as their bats have been glowing with power in the tournament up to now.

LSU center fielder Zach Watson (9) watches the two-run home run ball by Florida State's Dylan Busby fly over the wall in the first inning of an NCAA mens College World Series baseball game in Omaha, Neb., Saturday, June 17, 2017. Duplantis, who comes from a family of track and field stars, never slowed down and raced all the way around the bases to score. Diechman couldn't hold up his swing, leading to strike three, but the ball got away from catcher Cal Raleigh, allowing Duplantis to advance to third.

LSU (49-7) was down 4-3 when a freakish sequence turned the game in the eighth.

"It was like the greatest thing ever", Eastman said on cusp of the Saturday CWS opener that matches Fullerton against Oregon State (3 p.m. ET, ESPN). Freeman scored when Wells made a bad throw to second base.

"Tip your hat to them - the guy never stopped ... it's hard to cover that in practice". He's had an outstanding year for us. During the streak, the team is hitting a collective.305 at the plate with 19 home runs. The victory extended the Tigers' winning streak to 17 games, the second-longest active streak in the country.

The junior from Sarasota, Florida, averages.315 with the bat, which is second to sophomore outfielder Jackson Lueck (.327), while he leads the team in total bases at 140 and is one shy of the team lead in total hits (74) behind Quincy Nieporte.

On the throw, Florida State's base runner darted toward third. The throw to home plate was dropped by catcher Cal Raleigh and Freeman slid in safely. No one expected Coastal Carolina to make its championship run last season. That was kind of a weird play. "I just kept looking up and things kept happening, so I just kept running".

LSU, the NCAA Tournament No. 4 National Seed, will play No. 1 National Seed Oregon State (55-4), a 6-5 victor Saturday over Cal State Fullerton, in a winners' bracket game at 6 p.m. CT Monday.
