OMAHA—The third inning was very costly for LSU’s Anthony Ranaudo. Not so much because he allowed Texas to score a pair of runs and cut LSU’s four-run lead in half, but because the Longhorns forced him to throw 43 pitches. He issued walks to Brandon Belt, Keven Keyes, Connor Rowe and Preston Clark (a 10-pitch walk that drove in a run), and his pitch count is up to 77 already. Ranaudo is really struggling to throw his curveball for strikes, and his fastball command has been spotty as well. It’s 4-2, and LSU went quietly in the top of the fourth. Momentum has shifted.
