College baseball: LSU fans make themselves at home at UCLA in regional opener against Irvine
You can take a regional out of Louisiana State but you can’t take LSU fans out of the NCAA baseball equation.
LSU fans seemingly take over Rosenblatt Stadium at the College World Series in Omaha, Neb., every time their beloved Tigers advance. And they have descended upon UCLA’s Jackie Robinson Stadium en masse for the defending national champions’ first game against UC Irvine.
LSU is 40-20, lrvine 37-19.
Irvine left-hander Daniel Bibona is 9-2 with a 2.10 earned-run average. Tigers starter Austin Ross is 5-4 with a 5.07 ERA.
