BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - JaCoby Jones had four hits, including a homer, and drove in two runs to help LSU beat Oklahoma 11-1 on Saturday night to advance to the College World Series for the 16th time.

LSU (57-9), which tied a single-season school record for victories, used four pitchers, who combined to limit the Sooners (43-21) to five hits and prevented Oklahoma from scoring after it had taken its only lead of the series, 1-0, in the bottom of the first inning.

Will LaMarche (3-0) got the win for the Tigers, who improved to 5-0 in the NCAA tournament.

Dillon Overton (9-3), Oakland's second-round pick in this week's Major League baseball draft, allowed four runs on seven hits before being lifted in the sixth inning.
