LSU Tops Maryland Behind Big 7th Inning

LSU Athletics

After a 1-0 shutout on Friday night, the LSU Tigers (2-0) used a big 7th inning to top the Maryland Terrapins (0-2) in a Saturday matinee by the score of 5-1.

Tiger right-hander Ryan Eades (pictured) put together an impressive afternoon of work, fanning six batters, and allowing six hits but no runs in his 6.1 innings of play.

Leftie Chris Cotton allowed Maryland’s first run of the season, but recorded the final six outs and struck out 3.

LSU first baseman Mason Katz and second baseman JaCoby Jones drew back-to-backĀ  walks with one out in the seventh. Maryland put in reliever Ben Brewster who then gave up the game’s first run on an RBI by pinch hitter Alex Edward. Jones then scored on a bunt by catcher Ty Ross, and third baseman Christian Ibarra hit a line drive to right field, scoring pinch runner Jared Foster and Ross.

LSU added another run in the 8th on their way to an impressive 5-1 victory at Alex Box Stadium.

The Tigers and Terps will wrap up their 3-game series tomorrow at noon. Senior left-hander Brent Bonvillain will get the start for LSU.
