OMAHA—Where has Brandon Workman been all CWS?
The sophomore righthander, a potential first-round pick in the 2010 draft, had not pitched since a relief stint in regionals. But with the bases loaded and one out in the 10th, after freshman relievers Taylor Jungmann and Austin Dicharry proved ineffective, Texas called upon Workman, and he promptly bailed the Longhorns out of the tight spot. Workman used vicious hard-breaking curveballs in the dirt to strike out Derek Helenihi and Tyler Hanover, escaping the threat unscathed.
Pitching depth is Texas’ biggest advantage in this matchup, and it loomed large in the 10th when the ‘Horns could call upon a great talent in Workman after their first three relievers were out of the game. LSU, meanwhile, has closer Matty Ott back on the mound for his second inning of work in the bottom of the 10th. Ott, by the way, has pitched more than two innings just twice this year, and 28 of his 36 appearance were less than two innings.
