Long ball powers LSU to 10-1 win over Nicholls
BATON ROUGE - Zach Watson and Austin Bain went back-to-back in the third inning with solo-shots helping to power LSU to a 10-1 victory over Nicholls State University Tuesday night.
The LSU bats jumped on the Colonels pitching early hammering starter Bryan Taylor for five hits and three runs in just 2 1/3 innings of work.
AJ Labas was dialed in on the mound for LSU tossing five innings of one-run baseball. On Monday head coach Paul Mainieri said Labas and pitching coach Alan Dunn worked on tweaking his mechanics with his lower body to increase more velocity on his fastball.
The Tigers will depart Wednesday to College Station where they open up a three-game series with Texas A&M Thursday night starting at 7:00 p.m. on SEC Network.
