LSU Baseball Lineups For Tonight’s College World Series Final
Every team needs at least three and, ideally, four strong starting pitchers; having elite starters is especially valuable in college baseball, where postseason series are so short.
LSU’s Ty Floyd has had an outstanding outing thus far, striking out seven batters without walking a single one – but has run out of gas by the eighth inning.
LSU (26-5, 7-4 SEC) vs. Wake Forest (28-4, 9-2 SEC)
LSU will advance to the College World Series final against Florida with a win over Wake Forest on Thursday at 7:00 p.m. in Omaha. Cade Beloso’s go-ahead single in the ninth inning lifted them past South Carolina at Founders Park Friday with an exciting comeback victory.
LSU rallied from being down 2-0 after two innings to take a 4-3 lead before the third inning was up, only for Wake Forest to come back and regain the advantage with Alex Milazzo hitting a two-run homer to give Wake Forest a 6-4 edge.
After five innings with no scoring, Jack Winnay started the sixth inning by singling to right field and moving to third on Tyler Goeddeke’s sacrifice bunt before scoring when LSU Tommy White reached on an error. Griffin Herring quickly responded by striking out Nick Kurtz as soon as possible to prevent Wake Forest from seizing control of this contest.
Caglianone made things worse by throwing a wild pitch, resulting in an unearned run for LSU. Dylan Crews started the eighth inning off right by walking before scoring on Gavin White’s single. Unfortunately for Wake Forest’s rally attempt, double plays ended the inning, ending its momentum altogether and cutting short its success.

LSU Tigers will face Wake Forest Demon Deacons in an elimination College World Series game tonight in Omaha. The first pitch is set for 7 pm ET; fans can stream it live via ESPN or watch it online via the WatchESPN app. LSU entered Omaha as the number two seed, needing a win tonight to advance into championship round competition and advance as host of the National Tournament of College Baseball 2019. Below are their lineups.
The game features two incredibly talented SEC teams with plenty of talent on both teams – Paul Skenes and Rhett Lowder- who have been outstanding this year and could play a pivotal role in determining who emerges as national champion.
Skenes has continued his stellar pitching performance. In six innings pitched thus far, he has eight strikeouts without giving up a walk; Lowder has been just as impressive, giving college baseball fans something memorable to remember from both these pitchers.
After an embarrassing defeat at Florida, the LSU Tigers are fighting back strong. After scoring some timely runs throughout this tournament, I look forward to taking another step on Monday night. Dylan Crews and Tommy White will lead their teammates’ offense – showing incredible determination throughout.
LSU Tigers began the game strong from their starting lineup and hope to build on it against Demon Deacons in the semifinals. Blake Burke and Tommy White hit critical hits for LSU, while Cade Beloso and Jordan Thompson demonstrated their versatility midway through their order.
The LSU Tigers boast a deep team with plenty of experience at every position, led by head coach Wes Johnson, who has been an integral part of their success this season. Additionally, some of the country’s premier pitchers, like senior right-hander Paul Skenes and freshman lefty Rhett Lowder, can be found within this lineup.
LSU baseball is one win away from winning its seventh College World Series crown since program history began in 1947. After an incredible night with some record-setting plays, they won game one in the best-of-three finals with Florida on Saturday by winning 4-3 thanks to Cade Beloso’s game-winning homer in the 11th, LSU are in control and are poised for a repeat victory at their sixth consecutive College World Series Championship game against Texas Tech on Monday afternoon.
The Tigers entered the College World Series as the No. 1-ranked overall team and spent much of their season at or near the top of national rankings. A late-season slide dropped them down to seventh in some rankings; however, since then they have come storming back and now stand just a victory away from capturing another championship title.
LSU has managed to keep its players healthy this season, and the Tigers’ top two hitters, Dylan Crews, and Skenes, are projected as being high selections in the 2023 MLB Draft. Both performed admirably during their opener against Penn State, with Crews making an incredible leaping catch in center field to save a run during the third inning!

The LSU Tiger Marching Band and Golden Girls and Colorguard members give an exceptional pregame show before every home game. Their musical salute to LSU includes “Tiger Rag” and other songs. After each show, during one song the band transforms its formation to spell “L-S-U,” prompting fans on the east side of the stadium to respond with a chorus of “T-I-G-E-R-S!”
LSU boasts a rich tradition and a passionate fan base who support its athletes. Legendary coach Skip Bertman won its inaugural national title in 1939; current head coach Jay Johnson has brought new success to LSU after leading them to an unprecedented 40-22 record that propelled them back into Omaha for their inaugural College World Series appearance since 2009.
After experiencing early difficulties this season, the LSU Tigers overcame obstacles to finish off regular season play in top form and advance to the College World Series. On the final weekend, they defeated No.1 Texas A&M twice for regional wins that advanced them further, eventually defeating them 3-1 at College World Series (CWS) Game 1. Warren Morris then hit an incredible walk-off homer against Arizona that will live forever in LSU lore – and secured them victory against No. 4 Oklahoma State to advance further than expected in their regional win at CWS 1 against No.1 Texas A&M which advanced them further towards CWS qualification and advanced them further ahead than anticipated – beating No 1 Texas A&M 3 times before moving onto CWS tournament play vs Texas A&M three times en route to CWS victory and an appearance at CWS1. Warren Morris’ walk-off homer hit for what will remain forever be remembered: an incredible final-inning home run-off that won the game, which went down in LSU history! Warren Morris’ legendary walk-off home run will remain part of LSU history! Warren Morris’ home run will forever go down in LSU history!

Riley Cooper pitched three perfect innings against Florida to keep their series alive before striking out 17 batters against Oklahoma – the highest strikeout total since Arizona State pitcher Ed Bane fanned 17 against them in 1972!
