LSU Slugs Southeastern For 13 Runs
The LSU Tigers (6-1) bounced back from their first loss of the season with an onslaught of offense, slugging SLU pitchers for 19 hits on their way to a 13-1 victory.
“A team is often measured by how it responds to adversity and I felt our team bounced back in a big way after the loss (9-4 to BYU) on Saturday,” said LSU coach Paul Mainieri. “We feel like we have a good offensive club, and the performance we had in the loss was not indicative at all of what kind of lineup we have. I think today demonstrated the firepower that we’re capable of producing.”
LSU junior right-hander Ryan Eades (1-0) earned the win. Mason Katz finished with a career-high six RBIs, while Raph Rhymes finished 4-for-5 with five runs batted in.
LSU will travel to Lafayette to take on Louisiana (7-1) Tuesday night at the Tigue. First pitch is set for 6:00.
