BATON ROUGE - The Southern University baseball team held a 2-1 lead in the 9th inning against the number one team in the country, but the LSU Tigers scored one in the 9th and two in the 10th to secure a 4-2 victory over the Jaguars. 

The Lee Hines field crowd of over 1,000 were treated to a close contest throughout, as Jaguars freshman Tyler Robinson pitched a gem, striking out 5 batters over 7 innings while only giving up three hits and one run.

The Tiger bats were quiet most of the night, but with the Jags leading 2-1 in the top of the 9th, Chris Sciambra hit a sac fly in the 9th to send the game into extras. 

In the 10th, Alex Bregman delivered a fielder's choice RBI to give the Tigers their first lead of the game and Chris Chinea added a sac fly RBI to give LSU its final tally. 

Southern falls to 3-11 on the year, while LSU improves to 19-2. 

The Tigers will now head to Arkansas for a weekend series in Fayetteville, while the Jaguars will be at home against Texas Southern.
