OMAHA, Neb. - No matter what happens in the College World Series' best-of-three finals starting tomorrow, it will be tough for Texas to top its finish in a 4-3 win over Arizona State in Friday night's Bracket 2 final. That followed Louisiana State's 14-5 Bracket 1 win over Arkansas in the afternoon.
Texas' Connor Rowe hit the winning home run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning, shortly after Cameron Rupp tied it with a homer.
Texas (49-14-1) returns to the finals for the first time since 2005, when it won the last of its six national championships. LSU (54-16) will play for a sixth title, and first since 2000.
