Rising Stars + Proven Veterans = CWS Championship

When the ace of your pitching staff is a freshman, most teams would be in serious trouble. For LSU baseball, that is not the case whatsoever.

Alex Lange is undefeated in his freshman campaign. Lange currently holds an unblemished 8-0 record, has posted a 2.22 ERA and has recorded more strikeouts than innings pitched.

The Tigers’ closer, Jesse Stallings, is another freshman who is having no issues translating his high school dominance to the college game. He currently has 12 saves and has a 2.03 ERA; what more could you ask for from a freshman closer?

The list does not stop there either, as LSU has a plethora of young talent that is rising to the occasion for the top-ranked Tigers.

Combine this young talent with the veteran presence of Kade Scivicque, Alex Bregman, Chris Sciambra, Andrew Stevenson, Chris Chinea, Jared Poche, Mark Laird, Jared Foster and several more, and the Tigers have the perfect recipe for a CWS title.

LSU has a deadly combination of rising young stars looking to put their name on the map and savvy veterans that have had the same mission since they first stepped on campus; bringing the first College World Series title to Baton Rouge since 2009.

Prepare yourself for an incredible CWS run Tiger Nation.
