LSU (31-19, 9-16 SEC) broke a scoreless tie with a three-run fourth inning and rode freshman starter Kevin Gausman's complete game shutout gem to a 9-0 victory against Tennessee (23-25, 5-20 SEC).

The Tigers added five runs in the sixth and another in the seventh to erase any thoughts of a Volunteer comeback. Gausman (4-6) recorded seven strikeouts, allowed four hits and commanded the strike zone from the outset without allowing a single walk.
