Valdes HR cuts LSU lead to 6-5
LSU sent Chad Jones to the mound to get the Tigers out of the jam. Jones, who doubles as a free safety for the Tigers' football team, obliged, getting Phil Gosselin to pop out to keep the Tigers in front.
On a side note, there are 24,904 in attendance for the Cavaliers-Tigers tonight at Rosenblatt Stadium, matching a record for the night session of the opening day of the College World Series. A 2005 game between Nebraska and Arizona State drew the same attendance.
