For the first time since 2009, the LSU Tigers will play in the championship series of the CWS after a dominating 6-1 victory over Oregon State. Caleb Gilbert was terrific on the mound and the Tigers hit three home runs. 


Junior catcher Michael Papierski hit two of those home runs, a three-run shot in the 2nd inning and he also hit a solo blast in the 4th inning.
 
Beau Jordan also hit a solo dinger and that was plenty of offense for Gilbert.
 
In just his fifth start of the season, Gilbert threw 7.1 stellar innings, allowing just two hits and striking out seven. He left the game in the 8th inning after giving up a home run.
 
Zach Hess completed the job, striking out 2 in 1.2 innings of relief.
 
It was also a good day at the plate for senior shortstop Kramer Robertson, who was 3-for-3 with a run scored.  
 
LSU will play either TCU or Florida in the best of three championship series, which will begin Monday night at 6 PM.

    The TAKE with Rick Klein “We’re going to get it done,” President Donald Trump declared, in kicking off an extraordinary listening session on guns and school violence at the White House on Wednesday. But who is “we”? What is “it”? And when will things be done? When you get past the raw and powerful emotions on display in the room with the president, you necessarily move beyond the vague promises of action. You also lose some of the urgency – “Fix it!” one parent who lost a daughter at Parkland demanded – that right now is so palpable and visible, the urgency the very many student and parent activists spawned in the past week. The solutions outlined by the president so far include some with consensus and long histories of study, including expanded background checks and revised age limits on purchasing some weapons. Others are more controversial: Trump listed arming teachers and expanding mental health institutions as two ideas he’d like to pursue. As wrenching as recent days...
