LSU baseball gets series win vs. Mississippi State with 2-1 win
BATON ROUGE - The LSU baseball team got another strong outing from freshman pitcher Jared Poche' and the Tigers won a heated game 2-1 on Saturday that clinched a series win over Mississippi State.
Poche' struck out 6 in 6 innings and the Tigers scored 2 in the bottom of the sixth to take an advantage they carried to the end.
The game heated up in the third inning, as Bulldogs head coach John Cohen was ejected from the game after arguing with home plate umpire Joe Judkowitz on two separate occasions.
Cohen was upset at the lack of a catcher's interference call in the third inning, and let Judkowitz know about it both after the contested play and the next out.
The Bulldogs actually took the lead in the fourth, but Kade Scivicque and Chris Chinea came through with RBIs in the 6th to give LSU its 5th conference win of the year.
