Ranaudo gets out of jam; LSU leads 3-0
The Tigers take a 3-0 lead into the second inning of the deciding game of the CWS championship at Rosenblatt Stadium.
Texas third baseman Michael Torres led off the bottom of the first with a single up the middle. After second baseman Travis Tucker failed to get down a sacrifice bunt and then struck out, Brandon Belt flew out to deep center for the second out.
But hot-hitting DH Russell Moldenhauer singled to left, and Ranaudo walked catcher Cameron Rupp to load the bases.
Ranaudo didn't waste any time with Keyes, who quickly fell behind on a 1-2 count.
