The Tigers scored two runs in the second inning, to take a 2-0 lead.

The Beavers scored their first and only run in the third, cutting the lead to 2-1, before LSU came right back with two of their own, to make it 4-1.

The Tigers then added an insurance run in the sixth inning, and two more in the eighth, to cruise to  the six-run, 7-1, victory.
