LSU advanced to the CWS Finals with a 6-1 win over top-ranked Oregon State on Saturday. Junior catcher Michael Papierski became the first player in CWS history to go deep from both sides of the plate in the same game. His three-run shot was the game’s decisive blow.
Florida, meanwhile, earned a 3-0 win over TCU on Saturday to clinch a spot in the CWS Finals. Junior right-hander and staff ace Alex Faedo struck out 11 in 7 1/3 scoreless innings in that game. Faedo was selected 18th overall by the Detroit Tigers in the 2017 First-Year Player Draft earlier this month..
In terms of CWS history, this series is quite lopsided. LSU has six CWS championships all-time, with the last coming in 2009. Only USC (12 titles) has more. Florida, meanwhile, has never won a CWS championship. They were the runner-up in 2005 and 2011.Watch Now
