OMAHA—Friday started with rain and lighnting and ended with thunder. After Arizona State took a 3-2 lead on Zach Wilson’s RBI triple i the top of the ninth inning, Texas responded with two homers against Mitchell Lambson in the bottom of the frame to win 4-3 and clinch a trip to the CWS Finals against Louisiana State.
After Lambson struck out Brandon Loy to open the ninth, the Sun Devils were just two outs away from forcing a decisive game tomorrow. But the next hitter, Cameron Rupp, crushed a 3-and-1 fastball over the hitter’s eye in center field to tie the ballgame. After catcher Presto Clark popped out, Connor Rowe drilled a game-winning solo shot to right field. Who’s questioning the Texas offense now?
Of course we’ll have plenty more on this classic after postgame.
