OMAHA, JUNE 7 -- Michael Daniel started a six-run sixth inning with a home run and Brad Beanblossom capped it with a run-scoring single to send Oklahoma State into the championship game of the NCAA College World Series with an 14-3 victory over Louisiana State tonight.
The big inning wiped out a 3-2 LSU lead and eliminated the second-seeded Tigers from the series. Third-seeded Oklahoma State (56-16), which is unbeaten in three games in the series, will play for the title Saturday against the winner of Friday night's game between top-seeded Stanford and fourth-seeded Georgia.
It will be Oklahoma State's sixth appearance in the title game. The Cowboys won the national championship in 1959 and finished second in 1961, '66, '81 and '87.
Gordie Tipton (10-1) stopped LSU on four hits over eight innings and struck out seven. Tipton retired 15 straight batters after giving up three runs in the first two innings and has won all seven of his starts.
Bobby Carlsen drove in three runs and hit a record-tying three doubles to lead Oklahoma State's 19-hit assault against a record seven pitchers. No. 9 hitter Danny Perez had three singles and drove in two runs.
In their three College World Series games, the Cowboys have scored 35 runs on 46 hits.
LSU, which had only two hits in a 7-1 loss to Oklahoma State on Monday night, finished 54-19.
Paul Byrd (17-6) kept the Cowboys in check through five innings. They finally got to him in the sixth, sending 12 batters to the plate and getting seven hits off Byrd and Mark LaRosa.
