LSU evens series with Arkansas, 6-4

LSU evens series with Arkansas, 6-4”

Arkansas put a runner on base in the eighth when Jared Gates drew a one-out walk on a low 3-2 pitch, but the Razorbacks stranded one in the inning when Jax Biggers grounded into a fielder's choice to first base and Grant Koch flied out to center field.

Arkansas will go for the series win tomorrow night. LSU is out-hitting Arkansas 5-2. "Austin Bain stepped up and ripped that ball to left center and gave us the lead". Cole followed with a run-scoring single.

"It's like a pressure on me that I kind of like it". "I got another chance, and I put a good swing on it and put it in the seats".

Bain came to the plate with two outs and his team trailing 3-2.

Eric Cole reached on a hit-by-pitch to lead off the inning, then Dominic Fletcher singled and Casey Martin reached on an infield single by pitcher Ma'Khail Hilliard's glove.

Batting.288 as a team though without its accustomed power, Arkansas has hit 69 home runs to LSU's 35. Shortstop Hal Hughes sacrificed Jordan and Broussard into scoring position, turning the lineup over for centerfielder Zach Watson who walked to load the bases. Duplantis flying out reminded him of Matt Clark striking out with runners on second and third, and Bain's hit reminded him of D.J. Lemahieu driving in both runs to begin what became a 23-game win streak. Bain turned on the first pitch of the at-bat from Jake Reindl and sent it into left field.

"I've had an animal come on the field before", DVH said on Wednesday. "I didn't want to be the guy to stop the rally".

Peterson, pumping 96 miles per hour heat, inherited a 2-0 count against center fielder Dominic Fletcher, who already had three hits and a home run on the night. Gilbert replaced Fontenot, who threw three shutout innings, to start the ninth.

"But when you look at it, they're just a few wins away from being in the Top 25 and just a few wins away from hosting a regional and being in first place in the West". I'm going to go out there and lay it in there and throw it as hard as I can.

Arkansas loaded the bases with no outs, but only got one run out of the inning when Evan Lee drew a four-pitch walk with one out.

The Tigers turned the ninth inning over to junior Caleb Gilbert, who couldn't find the strike zone.

Arkansas wasted another opportunity to score in the seventh after Eric Cole reached on a leadoff double and advanced to third base with one out.

"Peterson got the game ball tonight", Mainieri added. "At the end of the game, coming in in a tough situation and cutting it loose as hard as he could he got some really good hitters out".

Hilliard didn't have his best stuff on Saturday, but he threw long enough to keep the Tigers in the game. Hilliard's final line: 5 innings, 3 runs, 7 hits, 2 walks, 4 strikeouts. Hilliard hung a 2-1 curveball and Fletcher bashed it for a two-run shot to right.

Mainieri turned to Devin Fontenot, who pitched three scoreless innings and only allowed two runners to get on base.

LSU's offense jumped Arkansas starter Kacey Murphy early. Through three innings, LSU worked Murphy's pitch count to 58 pitches, looking to force the Razorbacks to the bullpen early. He has retired 10 consecutive batters and needed only 34 pitches in the past three innings.

What's next for LSU baseball?

The teams will play the rubber match Sunday at 2 p.m. Tonight's and Sunday's games are Internet available on SEC Network +. Freshman AJ Labas will start the game for LSU, making the first SEC start of his young career.
