Leading 1-0 in the third inning, LSU once again broke out the bats with a two out rally.  

With Bell drawing a four pitch walk, Tiger slugger Sahvanna Jaquish slice one to a blank hole in right center field scoring two more runs with the double.

LSU catcher Kellsi Kloss would follow with a two run homer to keep the two out rally rolling. 

LSU would lead 5-0 moving to the middle of the third inning.

Auburn would score one run on a sacrifice fly, however LSU would counter right away scoring on a throwing error to make the score 6-1.
