Swing and a miss, and with 2 outs and two strikes in the bottom of the 9th, that was it; the LSU Tigers had their 6th baseball national title in school history.
Lead off by the dangerous Jared Mitchell who bombed a three run homer with two out early in the game, LSU rebounded from a tough outing last night in which there was a rain delay to put away the Longhorns. This is LSU’s first baseball title since 2000 and it ties them with Texas for 2nd place on the most College World Series championships in history. USC has the most with 12 titles.
LSU has racked up 9 titles between football and baseball since 1959, winning 3 football championships and 6 baseball championships.
Jared Mitchell was named the most outstanding player of the college world series.
