TUCSON, AZ - The LSU softball team had a devastating loss followed by a thrilling win on Saturday in the Tucson regional, the latter allowing the Tigers to stay alive in the NCAA tournament. 

LSU lost Saturday afternoon to #11 Arizona 9-8 after scoring four runs in the 7th to close the deficit to one. 

The loss put the Tigers in the losers bracket, but the Tigers responded with a 8-3 win over Boston University Saturday night. 

The final score does not indicate the kind of danger the Tigers faced. Down 3-1 in the top of the 7th and down to their final out of the season, Bailey Landry provided the game-tying RBI to score Jacee Blades.

Sahvanna Jaquish followed that with a 3-run home run, giving the Tigers a 6-3 lead and in the process becoming LSU's all-time leader in home runs (61).

The Tigers scored 7 runs in the 7th, and survived to set up a rematch with the Wildcats Sunday afternoon.

LSU and Arizona will meet in the regional championship at 3:30 CT. If the Tigers win, they'll have to beat the Wildcats a second time on Sunday to advance to the Super Regional round.
