LSU Walks Off Wake Forest in 11th Inning of CWS Classic

One swing of the bat finally broke a scoreless tie as LSU walked off Wake Forest 2-0 in 11 innings in a College World Series “instant classic” last night. 

In the bottom of the 11th, Tigers slugger Tommy White blasted a two-run home run into the left-field seats, clinching LSU’s spot in the CWS finals.  Until then, the game was a classic pitcher’s duel between LSU’s Paul Skenes and Wake Forest’s Rhett Lowder, as well as both teams’ bullpens. 

The Tigers will meet Florida in the best-of-three CWS championship series that begins Saturday with a 6 p.m. game.  It’s a rematch of the 2017 finals the Gators won for their first national title.
