I'm a little bit torn on whether I want to see LSU win it all or get knocked out early. It would be great to see Gausman pitch in high pressure games and emerge as a winner and a champion but do we really want to see him ratcheting up the high pitch counts the he will surely be throwing in these must win games? From my understanding, college pitchers (especially the best ones) are left out there to throw a ton of pitches in big games like these ones so I would almost prefer the Tigers get knocked out early to prevent Gausman's young arm from undergoing even the slightest abuse. I hope he wins his game and LSU loses the next 2 to lose the series. Anyone else agree?

He only threw 12 pitches in one inning, but getting up, cooling off during the break, and then getting back up to start the second game probably wasn't the best situation for his arm. That's puts his pitch count at 110 with a giant break in the middle. Probably worse than what anyone would have expected in terms of overuse.
