OMAHA—This blog has been conspicuously quiet since the third inning tonight, but that’s because nothing of note has happened since then. Taylor Jungmann has simply rocked LSU to sleep. The Texas freshman righthander is bearing down on his record-tying third win of the CWS, having shut out the Tigers since the second inning. He has allowed just one hit since escaping a first-and-third jam unscathed in the third, and he now has seven strikeouts through eight brilliant innings of work.
Of course, LSU relievers Nolan Cain and Daniel Bradshaw have kept the Longhorns off the board since the third inning also, but by that point Jungmann had all the support it appears he’ll need. It’s 5-1 Texas heading into the ninth, and it sure doesn’t feel like LSU is about to go on some magical run. The Tigers have just plain looked flat tonight against the overpowering Jungmann.
