Tigers Drop Series Finale To Kentucky

Tigers Drop Series Finale To Kentucky

LSU Athletics LSU can’t complete sweep, suffer lopsided loss. LSU won their first conference series against Kentucky, and they’ll leave with that being enough. After trailing for the entire game, an eight-run seventh inning doomed the Tigers in the series finale, dropping game three 13-3. In the decisive seventh inning, Kentucky blew a 5-3 game wide open by batting through the lineup nearly one and half times, scoring eight runs on just four hits and two errors, anf five walks and hit by pitches.

LSU Opens Kentucky Series With Win

LSU Athletics The Tigers won an SEC game. This is not a drill. Step back from the ledge Tiger fans, LSU did the improbable and won an SEC game.

WEEKEND GAMETHREAD: at Kentucky

WEEKEND GAMETHREAD: at Kentucky

Bluegrass baseball The LSU baseball team makes its way up to Lexington, Kentucky this weekend for a three game conference set with the University of Kentucky. The Tigers (18-11, 1-8 SEC) and the Wildcats (19-7, 5-4 SEC) are coming off a weekend in which Kentucky was swept by Mississippi State and LSU was swept by Vanderbilt, so it’s fair to say both squads will be looking to get back on track during this weekend’s series. To start the SEC season, the Wildcats also own a series win against Mizzou and a clean sweep at Auburn to go along with their trifecta of losses against...

Vanderbilt Embarrasses LSU

LSU Athletics Tigers on the wrong side of a series-opening blowout. It started off as a really good game. Landon Marceaux wasn’t necessarily matching Kumar Rocker, but he was pitching well and keeping LSU to within a run of Vanderbilt. And then the fifth inning happened and the game got ugly. Vanderbilt scored four runs in the inning on four hits and didn’t look back, blowing out LSU 13-1 in game one of a must-win for the Tigers. With the loss, the Tigers are now 1-6 in SEC play, their worst conference start since 1969. “It ended up being not a pretty sight,”...
