Teakell (3-1) took over for starter Mitchell Traver with one out in the fourth and the game tied at 3. The fifth-year senior retired all 13 batters he faced. Preston Guillory worked the final 1 1/3 innings.
TCU broke a 3-all tie in the fifth. Evan Skoug doubled in the go-ahead run and Steinhagen singled in two more. The Frogs added a couple of insurance runs in the seventh on a groundout and Steinhagen's RBI single.
The Tigers (54-12) were coming off a 5-3 win over Cal State Fullerton in which Alex Lange pitched a complete game. With no true No. 3 starter for LSU's third game in Omaha, Coach Paul Mainieri decided to pitch by committee and used a CWS record-tying eight. Austin Bain (2-3), the third pitcher for the Tigers, took the loss.
Zac Person, a reliever who had worked only 29 2/3 innings in 30 appearances, drew the start for LSU and lasted 1 1/3 innings. He walked in a run in the second, and Hunter Newman came on and gave up Garrett Crain's two-run double on his first pitch.
The Tigers tied it in the third when Jake Fraley tripled into the right-center gap and scored standing up on a wild pitch by Traver that went through Skoug's legs.
