BATON ROUGE - LSU (5-0) scored two runs in the bottom of the ninth inning to earn a walk-off victory by a score of 6-5 over BYU (2-3) Thursday night at Alex Box Stadium.

In the bottom of the ninth inning, third baseman Christian Ibarra tied the game at 5-5 with a one-out, solo home run over the left field wall.

After a walk to Chris Sciambra and singles from Mark Laird and Alex Bregman, outfielder Raph Rhymes delivered a bases-loaded, walk-off single to clinch the win.

The Tigers will return to the field Friday as they take on Southeastern Louisiana (3-1) at Alex Box Stadium. First pitch is set for 7 p.m. on Cox Sports Television and on LSU Sports Radio Network affiliates (98.1 FM in Baton Rouge).
