Florida Beats LSU 6-1 At CWS For 1st National Championship

Lucia Summers | 29 June, 2017, 09:02

Florida was on fire from the start of Game 2 of the College World Series, and their pace helped them clinch their first championship in school history on Tuesday night.

But with LSU all-time wins leader Jared Poche' starting on Tuesday and first-round draft pick Alex Lange available if there's a Game 3, the Tigers believe this best-of-three series matching Southeastern Conference rivals is just getting started.

Down 2-1 in the seventh, LSU had what would have been the tying run sent back to third base because of a runner interference call at second on a double-play ball. He works hard, and he has had several teams that maybe were even better than this team and sat up here as disappointed as I am right now.

Erin Andrews tweeted at the team as well.

LSU - playing its fourth game in six days and with Eric Walker out with an injury - turned to the seldom-used Reynolds to start.

O'Sullivan got creative for the final game, sending freshman Tyler Dyson to the mound for only his second start and calling on Jackson Kowar, who would have been the starter if a Game 3 had been necessary, to finish the game.

"If you would have told me before the game we would get three shutout innings from (Reynolds), I would have been pleased", Mainieri said.

The pitching overshadowed all shortcomings, and the Gators ended up with the No. 3 national seed after sharing the SEC regular-season title with LSU. The fifth-year senior, wearing a close-cropped Mohawk under his cap and throwing an 85 miles per hour fastball, gave the Tigers three shutout innings in his first start since March 2015. Deacon Liput laced a two-run single up the middle, and Schwarz lofted a sacrifice fly to center to cap the outburst. The Gators had eight players drafted in the first 10 rounds of last year;s Major League Baseball draft but went 0-2 in Omaha. While the usually reliable Byrnes, who has the Gator record with 19 saves in the season, struggled, in the close contest O'Sullivan wanted to win it with the lead and went to Kowar to hopefully only have to throw a couple of innings.

All that was missing was consistent offense. Monday marked the eighth straight game that Florida pitchers struck out 11 or more.

Singer's strikeout total was highest by a single pitcher in a CWS finals game.

I don't think anybody thought we'd get to this point. In mid-March we were hitting about.230 as a team.

Florida led 3-0 after LSU starter Russell Reynolds (1-2) issued three consecutive walks in the fourth, with India driving in two runs on a ground-rule double.

Faedo was named the Most Outstanding Player after two strong starts against TCU.

Dyson exceeded expectations, however, throwing six solid innings with just one run allowed on three hits.
