OMAHA—Louisiana State should be very pleased with how the first third of this game has played out. Tigers starter Louis Coleman looks very sharp, having allowed just one hit and faced one batter over the minimum through three scoreless frames. He has thrown just 35 pitches, and it’s looking like he’s going to pitch very deep into this ballgame. I thought it was key for Texas to try to drive up Coleman’s pitch count early, but he’s making that very difficult by pounding the strike zone. That is his M.O. anyhow.
Chance Ruffin has been solid for Texas, as well, though he did allow a solo homer to Ryan Schmipf on an 87 mph fastball up over the plate in the first. It’s 1-0 LSU heading into the fourth.
