Oregon State is 55-4 on the season, 14-1 in one-run games. But the Beavers best pitcher is not at the College World Series. Luke Heimlich made the decision not to travel to Omaha, after it was revealed he's a registered sex offender. A newspaper in Oregon made it public that Heimlich pleaded guilty to molesting a young child when he was a teenager.
OSU will send sophomore right-hander Bryce Fehmel to the hill. He's 5-2 on the year with a 3.80 ERA. Fehmel is coming off a complete game victory in the Super Regionals. In that contest he struck out 10, as his off-speed stuff was outstanding.
LSU will start freshman right-hander Eric Walker, who is 8-1 with a 3.46 ERA. Walker pitched very well the last two times out, but did not pitch in the Super Regionals. Walker felt sore after throwing in a simulated game last week, but Coach Paul Mainieri announced Saturday that Walker was 100% and would start on Monday.
