LSU’s Eric Walker was primed and ready for the big stage in Omaha, but the Tiger freshman barely made it into the third inning.

Walker threw 20 pitches against top seed Oregon State but left the game in the middle of the count during the first batter of the third inning with an apparent injury.

Walker’s final line for his College World Series debut: He gave up one run on two hits. Coach Paul Mainieri said Walker was experiencing a fatigued muscle in his pitching arm and that it tightened up.

Caleb Gilbert entered the game in relief.
