LSU falls to Vanderbilt 9-7 in game 3
BATON ROUGE – No. 14 LSU dropped the final game of the SEC series to Vanderbilt 9-7 Saturday in Alex Box.
Vanderbilt rightfielder Jeren Kendall knocked a three-run homer in the eighth inning, erasing a 7-6 deficit and putting his team on top.
LSU falls to 21-10 on the season and 6-6 in the SEC. Vanderbilt improves to 25-7 and 7-5 in the SEC. LSU defeated Vanderbilt Thursday and Friday and has won its last two SEC series.
“I’m very proud of the way our team competed this weekend; they left everything they had on the field and earned a series win over an outstanding Vanderbilt program,” said LSU coach Paul Mainieri. “Still, there’s a sense of disappointment because we feel like we let an opportunity slip away to complete the series with another win.”
The Tigers will return to Alex Box Stadium Tuesday to face McNeese State. LSU will take on Grambling Wednesday. Both games will start at 6:30 p.m.
