Lange and an inside-the-park home run propel the Tigers to win over Rice
Posted on 6/5/2016 10:21:00 PM.
LSU is in the championship round of the Baton Rouge Regional after a 4-2 win over Rice on Sunday night at Alex Box Stadium. Alex Lange pitched like an ace as he tossed eight plus innings, allowing just two runs and striking out 10.
 
Lange threw 112 pitches and also had to wait out a one hour rain delay to earn his 8th win of the year.

Hunter Newman pitched the 9th inning, after Lange gave up a lead-off single in that inning. Newman gave up an infield single, but that was it for his 7th save of the year.
 
The only offense for the Tigers came in the 1st inning off of Rice starting pitcher Jon Duplantier. With the bases loaded, LSU first baseman Greg Deichmann hit a shot down the right field line and the ball got stuck underneath a bench in the bullpen. The Rice right fielder, Charlie Warren, went after the ball, which kept the play alive and allowed everyone to score. If Warren had not tried to get the ball, it would have been a ground rule double.
 
LSU will play again on Monday night at 7 PM against the winner of a 2 PM contest between Rice and Southeastern Louisiana. The Lions kept their season alive by eliminating Utah Valley by a score of 3-2 on Sunday afternoon.

    After meeting separately with Secretary of Defense James Mattis, both Sens.

Graham told reporters that one of the open questions surrounding the ambush in Niger, which killed four Americans, is whether it was the result of an intelligence failure.“It’s too early to say. That’s exactly the questions we should be asking ourselves. In war you fail, you make mistakes and the whole goal is to learn from your mistakes and not repeat them.” Graham said Sen. McCain will likely hold a hearing on the operation, and the strategy more broadly, next week. A spokeswoman for the Senate Armed Services Committee did not comment.Graham also said the military will likely change its rules of engagement in Africa, and anywhere else they need to be changed, so that forces can hit targets based on their status – for example, a member of the...
