The LSU Tigers won the College World Series championship after an 18-4 victory over the Florida Gators in Game 3 of the finals Monday night, claiming its first national title since 2009.
It was a great night for the players, fans, and alums, but not everybody connected with the university had a good Monday night.
In the stands, ESPN cameras caught an LSU fan trying to talk to a woman, seemingly a Gators fan, but she put her hand up and swiftly rejected him on live TV. You just know his friends are roasting him about this.
The victory last night came after Florida forced a third game with a record-setting 24-4 victory in Game 2. LSU gave up the most runs ever in a College World Series game in the contest. Luckily, not many people will care to remember it since they won it all.
The Tigers’ miraculous run came as they staved off elimination three times during the tournament to claim its seventh championship. They hold the second-most titles behind Southern California’s 12.
The Tigers also recorded the most hits in a CWS game with an impressive 24 while racking up the most runs in a title game since USC’s 21-14 win over Arizona State in 1998.
Ace pitcher Paul Skenes was named the Most Outstanding Player of the CWS.
The Tigers were the consensus No. 1 team in the polls from the preseason and finished the season well enough to be the No. 5 national seed in the NCAA Tournament.
Months after the women’s college team brought home the trophy, the baseball team gives everybody even more reason to celebrate this year.
