College World Series: Pairings, game times, and TV schedule announced for 2017 NCAA baseball tournament
OMAHA, Neb. — The 71st Men's College World Series is well underway at TD Ameritrade Park Omaha in Omaha, Nebraska.
Bracket 1's play started on Saturday's Day One, when LSU and Oregon State both were victorious. That sent Cal State Fullerton and Florida State to Monday afternoon's elimination bracket. The two teams battled back and forth, exchanging leads three times, before Florida State rose victorious 6-4. The loss made CSU Fullerton the first team eliminated from Omaha.
Monday's nightcap was all Oregon State. The Beavers jumped out to an early 1-0 lead in the first and a KJ Harrison grand slam in the sixth put the game out of reach as Oregon State won 13-1. LSU and Florida State played on Wednesday night with the Tigers coming out on top 7-4, which in turn sent the Seminoles home from Omaha.
TCU and Texas A&M picked up play again on Tuesday, when the Horned Frogs' 4-1 win sent the Aggies home. In the nightcap, Florida defeated Louisville 5-1, moving to 2-0 in the CWS. Louisville will face TCU Thursday night at 8 p.m. ET in its first elimination game of the tournament.
There was only one game from Omaha on Wednesday night, but it was a good one. LSU and Florida State met in a CWS rematch. Jared Poche' earned his LSU program-record 39th win as LSU defeated FSU 7-4. The Seminoles time in Omaha is over, while LSU has yet another rematch on Friday, this time against the red-hot Oregon State.
The winners of the two brackets will play a best-of-three College World Series Finals, with the first game set for 7 p.m. ET Monday, June 26. The second game is scheduled for 8 p.m. ET Tuesday, June 27, while the third and deciding game (if necessary) is slated for 8 p.m. ET Wednesday, June 28.
