LSU baseball beats Vandy 4-2 in series opener
LSU Tiger baseball rallied in the eighth inning for four runs and held on for the 4-2 victory over Vanderbilt in Nashville on Friday night.
The SEC opener for both teams lived up to the pitchers duel hype most expected as both teams starters were phenomenal for most of the game.
LSU pitcher Aaron Nola gave up his first run in 54 innings pitched as Vandy jumped in front 1-0 in the 2nd inning on a sacrifice fly.
The game remained scoreless until the eighth inning when LSU loaded the bases and knocked Commodore starter Tyler Beede out of the game. Following that the Tigers took advantage of two LSU hits and two errors to plate four runs.
Both teams resume play Saturday at 2:30 in a televised game.
