LSU Tigers

The LSU Tigers won the first game of the College World Series championship series, beating the Florida Gators in 11 innings. But they were blown out in the second game of the series, losing 24-4 to Florida on Sunday. Now, LSU has one game left to try and secure a championship, as they hope to cool off the bats of the Gators in Monday's winner take all matchup.

One positive for LSU going into Monday is that they managed to save most of their top arms for this contest. Whether or not we see Paul Skenes again, the Tigers should have the pitching edge in this contest, which should give them the advantage. But in baseball, you still never know what could happen.

Florida Gators

The Florida Gators saved their season on Sunday, as they crushed the LSU Tigers in a 20-run beatdown to even this championship series at a game apiece. Now, the Gators will aim to build on that performance with a win on Monday to steal the national championship from LSU.

Florida will have plenty of top-tier pitching available for this game, but the question for the Gators will be whether their offense can cope with the pitching of the Tigers here. It will be all hands on deck for both teams on the mound, but that situation likely favors LSU, and Florida will have to do everything they can to get the Tigers out of their rhythm early.
