LSU dream fizzles quietly with a 4-2 loss to UNC

OMAHA, Neb. -- An abrupt ending is never a lot of fun in sports. When a team has had the kind of season LSU did this year, it's that much tougher.

The Tigers' national championship hopes screeched to a halt Tuesday with a 4-2 loss to North Carolina in a College World Series elimination game at TD Ameritrade Park.

LSU returned to the CWS aiming for a seventh national crown but leaves after a disappointing 0-2 showing.

A lethargic offensive performance is the main culprit, as the Tigers (57-11) could never generate the kind of big innings or effective execution that were their hallmarks all season.

Against UNC closer Trent Thornton - making his sixth start of the season - LSU scuffled for 7-plus innings.

Better luck next year boys. We have a nice class of recruits coming in next year hopefully we develop some boppers to replace the talent that's leaving.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

That huge ballpark rather nullifies big hitting teams like LSU. This points to small ball strategy which Manieri underutilized as they had a couple of chances in the first game that he let slip away. Great year nevertheless.

I didn't even know that game was on and missed it. Had to work.
When I got home I turned on the tv and it was already over.

I guess that was like anesthesia.
