As expected, LSU pitcher Paul Skenes was selected 1st by the Pittsburgh Pirates in the MLB Draft Sunday evening.  Skenes’ teammate outfielder Dylan Crews, was picked 2nd by the Washington Nationals.  Skenes and Crews become the first teammates to ever be drafted 1st and 2nd in the Major League Baseball Draft.
