Monday, the Tigers beat the Florida Gators 18-4 to win the College World Series. It's LSU’s 7th college baseball title – the second most of any team (behind only USC).
Florida grabbed a 2-0 lead in the first, but then it was all LSU. The Tigers clubbed 24 hits and had 8 batters who walked. That’s 32 runners who reached base, with 18 of them scoring.
The College Baseball Player of the Year, Dylan Crews, had four hits, as did Tommy White. Every Tiger starter scored a run, and all but catcher Alex Milazzo, who was injured while scoring a run early, drove one in.
