6/23 CWS update
DJ LeMahieu, the Cubs’ second-round pick in the June First-Year Player Draft, helped LSU beat top-seed Texas, 7-6, in 11 innings Monday in the College World Series. LeMahieu homered in the seventh and hit a two-out, two-run double in the ninth to tie the score and force extra innings. He then scored the game-winning run on Mikie Mathook’s single with two outs in the 11th. This was the opening game of the best-of-three championship final in Omaha. The two teams meet again Tuesday night.
