LSU WCWS Opener pushed to Friday

Due to weather, LSU-Michigan was postponed. Make up game is 8:30 on Friday.

LSU’s Oklahoma City experience is going to have to wait a couple of hours as LSU and Michigan had their game rained out and postponed until Friday, with OU and Bama having their game suspended due to weather. For the Tigers, this doesn’t really change the strategy a ton. Yes, LSU is potentially looking at four games in two days, making fatigue more of a factor. Two games on Friday might mean Beth Torina has to be a little more careful with the pitching staff. However, had LSU lost Thursday’s game by a wide margin, that starter likely wouldn’t have started the next game anyway.

The make up game is scheduled for 8:30 PM Friday.

Georgia Tops FSU with late offense.

In a game that featured a combined eight errors, the Bulldogs beat the Noles 5-4 thanks to a seventh inning run-scoring, fielder’s choice. FSU jumped out to a two nothing lead to start the game, but Georgia countered with two in the second and two in the third. FSU appeared to have gotten back in the game thanks to a two-run home run in the sixth, but that tie would quickly be broken by the Georgia run in the seventh.

Auburn offense explodes against UCLA.

The Tigers had no difficulty scoring in their 10-3 victory over UCLA in their opening game. UCLA was its own worst enemy with four hit batters in the first inning, resulting in five Auburn runs. The Tigers would tack on two more runs in the third before UCLA put up three runs in the top of the fourth. Auburn would respond with a run in the bottom of the fourth and then two more insurance runs in the bottom of the sixth. Georgia will play Auburn in the next round. When the two played during the regular season, Auburn swept the Bulldogs, outscoring Georgia 19-6 over the three games.
