The Tigers (48-17) punched their ticked with Sunday night's/Monday morning's 14-4 defeat of Mississippi State (40-27) to win game two of the Baton Rouge Super Regional and take the series from the rival Bulldogs.

The Tigers wouldn't stay down for long, though, as they picked up six runs in the fifth inning thanks to three hits, and a costly error and wild pitch from Mississippi State.

There's no way to make an accurate count of how numerous paid crowd of 11,706 were still there when backup catcher Jordan Romero drilled Hunter Newman amidships and sent him sprawling backward, setting off a joyful dogpile at the pitcher's mound.

He was fine the first two, but in the third gave up a walk, then a home run to No. 9 hitter Harrison Bragg, and was pulled after loading the bases on three more walks, the last after an 0-2 count.

MSU chased LSU starting pitcher Jared Poche with four runs in the third.

And then, Poche' really couldn't find the zone. Following an intentional walk to Smith that loaded the bases, Papierski popped out to deep center field.

"That was a critical part of the game", Gilbert said "They had all the momentum on their side". Poche' walked Josh Lovelady to start the frame.

Needless to say, it's not how he envisioned ending his career at Alex Box Stadium.

Poché was on the hook for a loss until the Tiger offense provided him with a General Motors-caliber bailout with a six-run fifth inning.

In the top of the first inning, the Bulldogs loaded the bases again Lange with a single sandwiched between a pair of walks.

But Gilbert (6-1) retired the next 15 in a row to give the Tigers a chance to rally. "I'm glad these guys are going to Omaha, these guys deserve it, these young guys, they're actually gonna go and I hope that they actually do win", Orin Bridgewater, an LSU fan, said. Closer Hunter Newman finished up with a scoreless ninth inning.

Deichmann was a big contributor in the series for the Tigers both offensively and defensive, and finished the Super Regional with three RBIs. It may not have been a ideal ending, but it was an effective one, and Kramer's career has been far from flawless so in a way, it was fitting.

LSU, seeded fourth overall in the tournament, has scored nine or more runs in nine of its last 12 games, outscoring opponents 109-35 during that span. Cannizaro said. "They're a program that's accustomed to going there".

"I always felt that we were OK and that we were on target, honestly".

"It was the best feeling in the world". Freeman then walked. Antoine Duplantis gave LSU a 1-0 lead with an RBI single to right field. "We wouldn't have cared".

The junior played what many expected to be his last game at Alex Box Stadium, and was taken off the field in the bottom of the ninth along with seniors Kramer Robertson and Cole Freeman and fellow junior Michael Papierski. It was a touching moment at 1:25 AM that screams everything right with baseball. The crew began to oblige until the crew chief walked out from the tunnel and told them to keep the tarp on the field contrary to Mainieri's orders. "But I had to do what was best for the team and he understood that".

When he walked to the plate, the thousands of LSU fans in attendance rose to their feet to cheer on Papierski who said afterwards that he didn't hear the fans until he was standing on second base following his clutch hit.

"I hated that picture", LSU coach Paul Mainieri said.

Mainieri was confident the Tigers bats were going to get going.
