  • Alex Bregman, LSU SS: Bregman went 4 for 5 with two RBIs. He had hits in his first four at-bats, including a pair of doubles (one a pop fly UH couldn’t catch).  He also made some spectacular plays in the field.
  • Kyle Bouman, LSU LHP: Bouman allowed two hits through the first six innings. He threw pitches over the plate, allowing his defense to make some incredible plays in the field. He retired 17 of 21 batters at one point.

The Misses

  • Kurt McCune, LSU RHP: McCune got rocked in the eighth inning. He allowed three singles, four runs and was called for obstructing a runner’s path down the first base line. He was credited for all four of Houston’s runs in its four-run rally in the eighth.

The Turning Point
