LSU's season over, Ragin Cajuns advance to Super Regionals
The LSU Baseball team's season is over as the Tigers were blown out in the regional championship by the Houston Cougars. The Bayou Bengals scored the first two runs and it was all Houston after that as the Cougars won 12 to two. Shortstop Alex Bregman says they couldn't get anything going after that first inning.
"I don't think that's a reflection of our season at all," Bregman said. "We know we are a much better team than that."
For LSU, it's the first time they failed to win a regional at home since 2005. And you probably have to go back to 1992 to see a worse margin of defeat for the Tigers at home in a regional. That year they lost to Cal State Fullerton 11-0.
Meanwhile, the Ragin Cajuns are heading to the Super Regionals after beating Mississippi State five to three in last night's regional championship game. U-L Lafayette jumped out to a 3-to-nothing lead in the third inning. Jace Conrad drove in a run and scored a run in that inning.
"We tried to jump on them early, hope that it would play to our benefit and it did," Conrad said.
Ryan Wilson was the winning pitcher as he allowed three runs over six-and-two-thirds of an inning, while Matt Plitt earned the save as he did not allow a run as he record the final seven outs of the game.
The Cajuns will now get ready to host Ole Miss in the Super Regionals.
