Tiger freshman pitcher Austin Bain was the stabilizing force in LSU's 9-2 win over South Carolina following a late game collapse the night before.

The Dutchtown product fired six and a third innings of four hit baseball setting the tone and the table for an LSU offense to rebound from a disappointing bullpen performance in a Thursday night loss.

Bain allowed two runs and walked just one while striking out seven, at one point he retired 13 straight Gamecock hitters.

LSU's offense would settle into a scoring groove plating runs in five of their nine innings, never trailing after the first.

The Tiger bats belted out 15 hits in a game that clinched the SEC West regular season crown and kept the team in the hunt for a conference title.

LSU will go for the series win in the rubber game on Saturday, first pitch is set for 7:00 p.m..
