Kudos to the bullpen

Yes, there were a lot of hitting stars for LSU in the late innings on Monday night.

But I think you've got to give a lot of credit to the Tigers' bullpen for giving LSU a chance to win. The job Chad Jones, Paul Bertuccini and Matty Ott did was phenomenal.

The party line from the Texas camp tonight is this: Georgia won the first game last year and Fresno State came back and won the next two.

There's only one problem with that scenario. LSU has a pretty good pitching staff. And Paul Mainieri can choose between going with Anthony Ranaudo or Austin Ross as a starter and still feel pretty good about a possible Game 3. The negative in the win? Ott had to pitch three innings so he doesn't figure to be available.

Still, baseball is about pitching. And LSU had the pitching when it counted.

LSU doesn't win Monday night w/o the bullpen. Hurray for Chad Jones. I hope he gets to pitch again in the CWS. Hopefully Matty Ott has at least 1 inning left in him.
