LSU softball surrenders four runs late, bounced from SEC Tourney
The LSU Tiger softball team was hoping to be just the second team to ever host the SEC Softball Tournament and win the title.
After the Tennessee Volunteers scored four unanswered runs to beat the Tigers 7-5 in the quarterfinals of the SEC Tournament, LSU will now have to wait until the weekend to find out if they're hosting a Regional for the NCAA Tournament.
LSU led 5-3 through five innings after scoring three in the fifth inning stealing the lead back from the Vols.
But in the sixth inning, the visitors scored three more runs to reclaim the lead. Tennessee scored all but one of their seven runs with two outs.
LSU was led at the plate by Bianka Bell who was 2-4 with two RBI and a solo home run in the game.
The Tigers are 44-11 on the season and have the second best RPI in the nation, so they are expected to host a regional round of the NCAA Women's College World Series.
