After the Beavs took down LSU on Saturday night, Oregon State advanced to Sunday night’s regional final awaiting the winner of the elimination game between LSU and Northwestern State.
LSU survived that game thanks to a late surge of offense, resulting in a 9-5 win for the Tigers. LSU scored five runs in the top of the ninth to get the upper hand. The Tigers outhit the Demons 16-7. Overall, it was a messy game with three errors from LSU and four from Northwestern State.
LSU now faces Oregon State tonight at 6 PM PT. If Oregon State wins, the Beavs move on to the Super Regionals to face whoever wins the Minnesota regional. If LSU wins, the two teams will play a rematch on Monday night at 4 PM PT.
LSU’s pitching is more or less depleted at this point, as their first and third starter options were held back from this weekend due to fatigue and have used most of their bullpen already this weekend.
If probable starter Kevin Abel and OSU execute, they should be able to get it done. Fingers crossed.
