OMAHA, Neb. -- Texas right fielder Kevin Keyes, who left the bases loaded by striking out in the first inning, belted a two-run homer to left to tie the score at 4-4 in the fifth inning of the deciding game of the College World Series championship series.

After catcher Cameron Rupp led off the fifth with a sharp single to left, Keyes ripped LSU starter Anthony Ranaudo's first pitch over the left-field wall. It was Keyes' ninth homer of the season and second at the CWS.

The Longhorns have gotten a solid effort from relief pitcher Brandon Workman, who replaced starter Cole Green in the third inning. Workman, who was the losing pitcher in LSU's 7-6 win in 11 innings on Monday night, allowed Sean Ochinko's single to open the third, before retiring the next nine LSU hitters.
