LSU slips against South Carolina 10-7
COLUMBIA, S.C. - Three bases loaded walks in the 7th proved to be the difference in LSU's 10-7 loss to South Carolina.
The Tigers at one time led 6-2 in the 6th, before the Gamecocks scored 4 in the bottom 6th to tie it at 6. Then in the bottom 7th, LSU relief pitcher Jake Godfrey walked two straight batters to load the bases then give USC the lead. Hunter Newman tried to stop the bleeding, but he walked in two additional runs, before the Gamecocks scored another run on a sacrifice fly.
The Tigers in control at first, in big part thanks to Chris Chinea. The junior was 4-5 at the plate, including 3 RBI, 3 R and a HR.
LSU will look to tie the series up against USC tomorrow in game 2 at 6 p.m. Austin Bain will get the start on the mound for the Tigers. South Carolina's starter in game 2 is still to be decided.
