Softball drops weekend finale vs #22 North Carolina
BATON ROUGE - The No. 10 LSU softball team was handed its first setback of the 2013 season, a 3-1 decision by No. 22 North Carolina on the final day of the Tiger Classic Sunday at Tiger Park.
LSU (4-1) was six outs away from posting an unblemished opening weekend after the Tigers snatched a 1-0 edge during the fourth inning.
"It just seems like we couldn't get a break all day," head coach Beth Torina said. "Everything that happened seemed to not go our way. We will learn from it.

I think it is just a balance of (knowing) what we can get and when to go for certain plays."
LSU hits the road for the first time on the season and faces Ole Miss for a Wednesday non-conference tilt. Wednesday's first pitch is slated for 3:30 p.m.,
