However, Robertson made it a 4-0 game for LSU.

"I was just taking it one out at a time", Gilbert said. "I was just sticking with my guns and going for it". "He said after each example: It's just one game".

"I know Caleb will pump a lot of strikes", Mainieri said.

"They were an outstanding ball club, one of the best, just like our team was in 2013. It was a wakeup call for our guys". It appeared that the stars were aligning for OSU as they came from behind to beat Cal State Fullerton in game one, and smashed LSU in game two. Oregon State hadn't lost back-to-back games all year and was in the driver's seat after routing LSU 13-1 on Monday night.

"Win or lose, they're prepared", Bailey said. No CWS participant has done so from both sides of the plate since at least 1999.

However, something changed for the Beavers after their shellacking of LSU on Monday, as the Beavers weren't the same team on Friday and Saturday. The right-hander, whose postseason resurgence pushed the Beavers deep into the postseason, allowed four hits and four runs - three of which came on a two-out second inning home run to right field by LSU catcher Michael Papierski.

The junior righty from Lee's Summit, Missouri, was taken with the 30th-overall pick in last week's Major League Baseball draft.

This week, that trio noted their particular concern about the Senate bill's impact on their efforts to combat the opioid epidemic. Cantwell said she and fellow Democrats will use "every tool we have" to halt the GOP plan, which could be voted on by next week.

"We had thought about it yesterday after the game, and we thought we'd go with Ras", Casey said.

"I mean, we didn't adjust", OSU's Michael Gretler said.

Instead, Rasmussen entered with a 5-0 deficit in the fourth inning.

He came up again in the fourth against left-handed reliever Brandon Eisert and hit a right-handed home run to left.

When Alex Lange was carving up Oregon State for seven innings Friday night, forcing a decisive Saturday game, Caleb Gilbert was paying close attention.

"We didn't adjust", Gretler said. "I think it was as simple as that". "And we didn't make any big adjustments".

Josh Smith walked with two outs in the bottom of the second, and Beau Jordan doubled to put runners on second and third. Kwan shortened what had been a more drastic leg kick before a late-March series against Stanford and emerged as an elite leadoff hitter.

Iran's Top General Urges Muslim Unity in Eid Message
As Ramadan drew to a close, moon sighting committees were deployed across Morocco to observe the moon on Saturday's night. However, Oman will celebrate the first day of Eid al-Fitr on Monday, the official Omani news agency reported.

Fehmel (6-3) left after two and a third innings, having allowed four runs on four hits with two walks and one strikeout.

Two losses against LSU doesn't erase a season's-worth of splendid play.

"We had a very conscious idea to throw the ball over the plate", said LSU coach Paul Mainieri.

Chants of "O-S-U" returned in a crowd of 15,618 heavily dressed in purple and gold. He only pitched out of the stretch to two batters Saturday. He was able to locate his fastball well, regularly working the outside of the plate-and beyond, as far as home plate umpire Greg Street was willing to call a strike. For starters, a program finally dethroned Oregon State, the No. 1 seed that would end up finishing its season with just six losses.

Fehmel was a surprise starter for the Beavers.

Casey explained his decision away by saying he woke up Saturday and realized Fehmel was "better against them early" and Rasmussen was of higher value out of the bullpen.

Devils select Hischier with first overall draft pick
He found out he had been drafted while he was mowing the lawn and a friend called to say he heard the news on the radio. The year before, the Winnipeg native had 102 points on 41 goals and 61 assists in 72 games for the Wheat Kings .
