LSU baseball loses 1-0, drops SEC series at Vandy
NASHVILLE, TN - One run in a pitcher's duel Sunday afternoon decided the LSU-Vanderbilt series Sunday after a stellar outing from LSU freshman Ma’Khail Hilliard.
A passed ball on Tiger catcher Hunter Fedduccia allowed Vanderbilt to score an early run in the first, but the LSU bats couldn't respond in the shortened 7-inning contest.
Hilliard (5-1) was charged with his first loss as a Tiger after giving up just four hits with a career-high eight strikeouts on the Commodores.
“Ma’Khail was outstanding and gave us another great outing, and it was a tremendous game, but we couldn’t generate the run support we needed,” said LSU coach Paul Mainieri. “This entire series was extremely competitive, and I thought our team played at a high level against a Top 10 opponent on the road. There were a lot of positives in the series, and we can definitely build from this weekend.”
The Tigers take the field next on Tuesday vs. Louisiana-Lafayette in the Wally Pontiff Jr. Classic at the Shrine on Airline at 7 p.m.
