HOOVER, AL - The LSU baseball team rallied twice against the Florida Gators and won 5-3 in the 2nd round of the SEC baseball tournament.

Tied at 3 in the 14th inning, LSU catcher Jordan Romero pinch hit and snapped a 0-17 hitless streak with the game winning single with two on and two outs.  LSU would add another run to lead it 5-3 in the longest game ever played at the SEC Tournament in Hoover and reliever Jesse Stallings would retire 23 batters without allowing a run to preserve LSU's third win in four tries over the top-ranked Gators. 

The Gators built a 2-0 lead early as Alex Lange gave up 2 runs in the bottom of the first, but Lange settled down from there, ultimately striking out 11 over 7 innings. 

Meanwhile, the Tigers rallied in the 8th as Antoine Duplantis scored LSU's first run on a Jake Fraley single that ended with Fraley on 3rd thanks to some heads-up baserunning. 

Kramer Robertson then sent Fraley home with a fielder's choice as Fraley slid under the throw to home plate, and the Tigers took the lead as Bryce Jordan hit an RBI single to score Robertson. 

The Gators weren't finished, as they tied the game at 3 in the 9th on a Deacon Liput RBI single to score Buddy Reed.
