BATON ROUGE - The LSU baseball team won the Baton Rouge Super Regional after beating Kentucky 8-3 in Game 2. LSU will head to its first College World Series since 2017.
Ty Floyd got the start on the mound for LSU, but only pitched 3.1 innings after giving up three home runs. Riley Cooper came in relief and pitched three shutout innings.
Offensively, the Tigers only had eight hits on the night. Senior Cade Beloso hit a three-run homer in the third inning to extend the Tigers' lead. Dylan Crews hit the knock out punch in the ninth with a two-RBI double.
