Tiger baseball crushes Northwestern 27-0
The LSU Tiger baseball team exploded for 27 runs on 23 hits on Tuesday night in a historic 27-0 win over Northwestern State.
Both catcher Tyler Moore and shortstop Alex Bregman hit grand slams and had eight RBI to pace the Tigers.
The eight RBI were one RBI shy of an LSU single game record. The 27 runs scored tied a school record, and five LSU pitchers combined for a six-inning no-hitter the first in school history since 1979.
LSU's bats came alive in a rain delayed and weather halted contest as four Tigers launched long balls into the stands including the two grand slams.
Tiger shortstop Alex Bregman accounted for two home runs, the grand slam and a three run home run.
Pitchers Jared Poche', Kyle Bouman, Nate Fury, Kurt McCune and Joe Broussard combined to no-hit Northwestern State in the six-inning contest, limiting the Demons to just two base runners on a hit batsman and a walk. The no-hitter was the first recorded by LSU since March 14, 1979, when Bobby Landry fired a seven-inning no-hitter against Southern Mississippi.
The game was stopped in the sixth inning when lightning was detected in the area.
LSU wraps up the regular season with a three-game SEC series at Auburn starting Thursday at 6 p.m..
