LSU Loses Another Heartbreaker

In a battle of SEC Tigers, Auburn took game 2 over LSU by the score of 3-1. A ninth-inning two-run homer broke a tie, propelling Auburn to their second win in as many days. Here is more from

Auburn shortstop Casey McElroy launched a two-run homer in the top of the ninth inning to break a tie game and lift the Tigers past No. 21 LSU, 3-1, Saturday night in Alex Box Stadium.Auburn closer Ethan Wallen (3-3) was credited with the victory as he pitched 2.1 scoreless innings to close out the game and help his squad improve to 20-14 and 7-7 in Southeastern Conference play.

Despite a phenomenal effort, LSU freshman starter Kevin Gausman (2-4) was charged with the tough-luck loss for the Tigers (22-14, 3-11 SEC). Prior to surrendering the two-run dinger in the ninth, the right-hander had fired a career-high 8.1 innings, allowing only four hits and two walks and striking out eight.

The loss dropped LSU to 3-11 in SEC play. It also marked the second weekend in a row that LSU lost a heartbreaker at the hands of a 9th inning homerun. Ben Alsup will start tomorrow for the Tigers from Baton Rouge. First pitch at Alex Box Stadium is set for 1:00.
