Father of LSU star pitcher revives man with no pulse at CWS

Florida pitcher Brady Singer throws in the first inning of Game 1 of the NCAA College World Series baseball finals against LSU in Omaha Neb. Monday Father of LSU star pitcher revives man with no pulse at CWS

They were there to document history. In its 11th College World Series trip, Florida's pitching-and-defense formula paid dividends.

Florida (52-19) scored four runs in the eighth inning to pull away and, for the first time in the program's 103-year history, it will take the championship trophy to Gainesville.

With Florida starting pitcher Brady Singer - who LSU coach Paul Mainieri says could be the No. 1 overall draft pick next year - facing off with LSU starter Russell Reynolds - who came in with just 13 innings of work all season - tonight's first game of the CWS finals went nearly as expected.

It's clear: Florida coach Kevin O'Sullivan is a rising star, and he has built a national power in Gainesville. O'Sullivan led a Gator team through adversity and injuries to starting left fielder Austin Langworthy, starting catcher Mike Rivera and starting shortstop Dalton Guthrie throughout the 2017 season.

"We played to win tonight, not to get to Game 3", said ace pitcher Alex Faedo, the most outstanding player in Omaha for his work in two victories last week over TCU. Byrne, who saved Monday night's game, was greeted with a line shot off the bat of Josh Smith that went for an RBI double after it got by a diving Ryan Larson in right.

"I don't know if there was a defining moment", O'Sullivan said. He later added, "I was prepared to go all nine if needed. You're either going to go up there and get your money's worth and hammer a pitch or you going to strike out".

Capito says she can't support GOP health care bill

The Tigers had used those prevailing winds to their advantage in their first six games of the CWS, clobbering eight home runs - the most hit by a team in the CWS since the event moved to TD Ameritrade Park in 2011. Horvath scored from second base and the Gators took a 2-0 lead. Deacon Liput had the big hit, driving in two of his three runs with a single to make it 5-1.

Dyson was seemingly untouchable on the mound, allowing just two hits and two walks with two strikeouts through six scoreless innings. Michael Byrne threw two innings of relief to record his 19th save of the season - a national high - and his fifth of the NCAA tournament.

The Gators' championship wasn't without controversy, though. However, with the Gators willing to give up the tying run to turn a double-play, interference was called on LSU's slide at second base. Beau Jordan then flied out to end the inning.

"You feel like Jared's pitching really well, and yet you give them two runs", Tigers coach Paul Mainieri said. Betances could have still gotten the save with a double-play ground ball. A wild pitch advanced Kramer to second base, and a Cole Freeman bunt sent Roberton to third, giving LSU runners in the corners with no outs for the Gators. Jackson Kowar got the final out and Florida won their first national baseball championship, joining just a handful of schools who have won national titles in football, basketball and baseball. Then cleanup man Greg Deichmann tapped a grounder to first and Schwarz cut down Robertson at home plate by a few inches. Watson then lined to center for the third out.

Jared Poche (12-4) lost despite not allowing an earned run in 5 2/3 innings.

Game 2 is Tuesday at 7 p.m. Liput drove the ball straight up the center field gap to bring Horvath home for a 2-0 lead. From there, back-to-back singles were enough to score him and put the Gators up 1-0. Florida stranded seven runners in the first three innings, including five in scoring position.
