LSU Wins College Baseball World Series

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - LSU, which two years ago wasn't good enough
to qualify for its conference tournament, is the best team in
college baseball again.
The Tigers won their sixth national title Wednesday night,
breaking open Game 3 of the College World Series finals with a
five-run sixth inning that carried them to an 11-4 victory over
Texas.
Jared Mitchell hit a three-run homer in the first inning as LSU
(56-17) built a 4-0 lead. Texas (50-16-1) pulled even, but Mikie
Mahtook's tie-breaking double ignited the Tigers' big sixth against
the mistake-prone Longhorns.
Anthony Ranaudo (12-3) got the win in a so-so outing that saw
him allow four runs on eight hits and five walks in 5 1-3 innings.
Brandon Workman (3-5) took the loss.
